~~skincare from the inside out~~ these are a few of my current favorites to promote optimal skin health! πŸ˜·πŸ’†πŸ»πŸ’¦ 1) @rxselectnutraceuticals coconut oil supplements. coconut oil's antioxidant effects can help protect against free radicals (sun, pollutants, etc.) as well as heal and repair damaged skin. these fatty acids are also easily absorbed, can strengthen connective tissue, and help promote exfoliation. fun fact: coconut oil also stimulates thyroid function and helps cholesterol conversion into anti-aging steroids, which in turn, lower the risk of cancer and heart disease! 😱 aaaaaaaamazing!!! 2) @strivectin tightening face serum. this particular serum, leaves skin feeling tighter, softer, and more supple. tetrapeptides (collagen synthesizers), combine with patented nia-114 technology to visibly firm and nourish the skin barrier. overall skin appearance is more defined, voluminous, and skin elasticity is ultimately improved. nia-114 has the ability to rejuvenate and transform the skin. a form of niacin, nia-114 penetrates into the deepest epidermal layer to repair signs of aging at the source. nia-114 as a pertinent ingredient that energizes your body’s skin cells, strengthens your skin barrier, and even protects against environmental elements that cause skin damage. science is awesoooooome!!! πŸ”¬βš—οΈ

My go to duo!πŸ’†πŸ»πŸ’¦βœŠπŸΌ @lovephilosophy back to nurture replenishment oil gelee is an oil-gel formulation which deeply nourishes and replenishes parched, dry skin. if your skin suffers from unquenchable thirst or visibly looks as though it's lost its youthful vitality, this serum is the answer! it readily absorbs into skin, leaving it soothed, smoothed, and supple. my skin is predominantly oily/ combination, however this does not mean it can not be dehydrated. for this reason, i always replenish what has been depleted! hydration is key! @lovephilosophy ultimate miracle worker multi rejuvenating cream has an spf of 30 and is broad spectrum. in other words, it protects skin against uva (aging) and uvb (burning) rays, promoting firm, dense, and more radiant skin! be mindful that even in the coldest of months, you will still reap the benefits of an spf, because the sun still poses a risk. this moisturizer contains plant cells that aid in rebuilding natural collagen, which promotes skin elasticity, and rejuvenates the skin layer by layer. ultimately, the skin is completely protected! goal accomplished!!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ #skin #skinhealth #skincare #passion #obsession #skinnerd #skinnurse #cellularlevel #cellularlevelofskin #skinscience #skinhealth #skinprotection #skincaretherapist #skincarespecialist #aesthetician #esthetician #licensedesthetician #pittsburgh #pittsburghesthetician #makeupbyjomarie

Aroma therapy, hot towels are the key, to any skincare treatment! not only do they manipulate the skin, by opening the pores and promoting product penetration, but they also soothe, calm, and destress the body, ensuring optimal client experience and relaxation!! πŸ’†πŸ»πŸ’†πŸ½πŸ’†πŸΌ‍♂️

Current night time skincare routine! are you aware that you lose 1-2% of collagen per year, after you reach the age of 30?! 😱because of the inevitable aging process, it is imperative to stay proactive and use ingredients conducive to preventing and maintaining youthful skin. two active, key ingredients/ components, pertinent to keeping aging skin looking it’s best, are hyaluronic acid and retinol. hyaluronic acid is naturally present, in the body. it’s is extracted externally, then stabilized and used in the skincare process. it holds 1,000 times it’s weight in water, and is utilized as an agent to hydrate and replenish the skin. the molecular size of ha determines its depth of delivery in the skin. @skinmedica ha5 rejuvenating hydrator is chalk full of 5 different types of hyaluronic acids, that work synergistically to plump and hydrate! retinol, a vit. a derivative, aids in regenerating/stimulating collagen depleted/sallow skin, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, facilitates cellular turnover to inhibit acne scarring and hyperpigmentation, and decreases pore size. since retinol compromises skin’s integrity, pair with sunscreen. @rocskincareofficial retinol correction max, works systemically, as a cream/ serum duo, to address all those previous concerns. the retinol cream is initially applied, increasing cellular turnover, stimulating collagen synthesis. next, the resurfacing serum, containing zinc and copper microparticles, helps boost the skin's bioelectricity (small electrical pulses that tell the cells when to repair the skin). interesting!! πŸ§πŸ€” since cells are proliferating exponentially, nightly, you want to be mindful about staying diligent about the ingredients you’re applying, not only internally, but also topically. in between microderm treatments, i use my @dermae physical exfoliant, microderm scrub, 2-3 times weekly. it aids in pore decongestion and proteolytic digestion (essentially, eating away at the aggregated dead skin cells). this ensures optimum product penetration, and you’re also extending the life of any product you’re using post exfoliation. moreover, this particular line, is cruelty, paraben, phthalate free, and vegan! πŸ€—πŸ˜·πŸ’†πŸΌ‍♀️

Omg why is this so intriguing, to me??!! in conjunction with dermatology nursing, id love to explore the realm of histotechnology, primarily focusing on mohs surgery. mohs microsurgery, is a precise surgical technique used to treat skin cancer. during mohs surgery, thin layers of cancer-containing skin are progressively removed and examined, until only cancer-free tissue remains. histology is a science dealing with the structure of cells and their formation into tissues and organs. histotechnology centers on the detection of tissue abnormalities and the treatment for the diseases causing the abnormalities. πŸ˜·πŸ‘©πŸΌ‍πŸ”¬πŸ”¬ #histo #histotech #histotechnology #histotechnologist #mohs #mohssurgery #mohsmicrosurgery #skin #skincare #skinhealth #skincaretherapist #skincaretherapy #skinnurse #skinnerd #skinscience #cellularlevelofskin #esthetician #licensedesthetician #skincancer #skincancerawareness #skincancerfoundation #passion #obsession

My daytime/ nighttime eye cream combo! πŸ‘€collagen depletion is inevitable, over the age of 30, due to age and environmental factors, and is not fully replaced. as a result, smooth, resilient, immature skin, slowly becomes thin and wrinkled, over time. as collagen fibers deteriorate, certain peptides are produced. these peptides send a "message" to your skin that it has lost collagen and needs to generate more ample amounts. when peptides are applied topically, your skin assumes that it's a collagen break down product and that your body needs to manufacture new collagen. (crazy huh?!!) πŸ€”ultimately, you can successfully minimize wrinkles and give your skin a more youthful appearance, with the application of skin care peptides, that stimulate the production of collagen. with that being said, @clinique #pepstart eye cream is chock full of peptides and my go to daytime eye cream! being more mindful of the ingredients i have been incorporating in my regime, i have recently been utilizing more all natural ingredients. @theorganicpharmacy #lipandeye cream is the perfect rich consistency, for night time use! it's comprised of organic ingredients; eye bright, fennel, bilberry, neroli, frankincense, and aloe, which effectively promote the benefits, of anti aging properties. i use this, along the orbital bone, in conjunction with my @josiemarancosmetics #argan #infinitycream! a match made in heaven! 😍

In love with my #koraorganics #noniglow face oil! this particular product, was created by supermodel, @mirandakerr. it encapsulates the ingredient "noni," a derivative of the noni fruit, which is a potent and powerful antioxidant (to combat free radicals), containing more than 100 vitamins and minerals, and known for its natural rejuvenating properties! πŸ˜·πŸ’†πŸ’¦ @koraorganics

Sundays are a day of rest, aka a day of pampering, with new skincare goodies! πŸ’†πŸΎ @drdennisgross #alphabetaextrastrengthdailypeel is an extra strength peel to facilitate and enhance skin's radiance and combat the three most common signs of aging; -eradicates chronic breakouts and acne prone skin, while decongesting impacted pores -treats dry, rough, dull, sallow skin -diminishes fine lines and wrinkles this patented formulation encompasses 7 acids 😱, is easy, safe, and efficient, and does not require any recovery time. πŸ’πŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ step one is packed with rejuvenating, powerful, yet gentle exfoliating acids. (think superficial alpha hydroxy acids, such as glycolic acid, which degredate the dead skin cells' "intracellular glue" and beta hydroxy acids, such as salicylic acid, which deep clean those pores, almost reminiscent of a "rotor rooter") step two acts as a buffer and controls the alpha hydroxy acid activity, by balancing the skin's ph, and maintaining the skin's acid mantle(protective layer). it delivers antiaging properties and keeps skin nourished, balanced, smooth, and radiant. skin ultimately looks refreshed and prepped, for a more effective skin care routine, by promoting optimum product penetration. πŸ’πŸΌ‍β™‚οΈπŸ’¦

Thank you santa, for all the skincare goodies! πŸŽ…πŸΌ i may or may not have a slight obsession, with @strivectin skincare! πŸ€— niacin, a main component, in most of #strivectin skincare (nia-114), is a vitamin b derivative(also found in bananas 🍌), and when applied topically, it promotes and maintains healthy cells! when used consistently, it may cause the skin to produce a flushed appearance, also known as "prickly heat" sensation, prompted through cellular stimulation, signaling capillary vasodilation. this is completely normal! πŸ˜‰ strivectin intensive concentrate for stretch marks and wrinkles, is formulated with "collagex," a collagen complex, which harnesses powerful anti-aging benefits. collagen, a vital component of skin, gives our skin its thickness, suppleness, and elasticity. when we experience collagen depletion, (predominantly due to ageπŸ‘΅πŸΌenvironmental factors and pollutantsπŸš™πŸ’¨the sunβ˜€οΈand other free radicals🚬)wrinkles develop. peptides, also known as short chains of amino acids, are the building blocks of proteins, in the skin. when applied topically, being that they are extremely permeable, they are readily able to p*******e the top layer of our skin and send signals to our cells to let them know how to function and also prompts formation of new collagen! voila, you have the appearance of more youthful, supple skin. 😱patented nia-114 maximizes skin performance and also guards against damage, caused by environmental aggressors. as it hydrates and enhances skin texture, the wrinkle fighting formula significantly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. strivectin retinol concentrated serum's innovative formula helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and deep set wrinkles, as it evens out skin tone, for a more radiant complexion. its unique combination of retinol and patented nia-114 technology, delivers the power of retinol, while limiting the sensitivity often associated to other wrinkle serums. it leaves the complexion dramatically more refined, with a smoother, youthful looking appearance.

@ultabeauty haul!! πŸ€— i was so intrigued by and heard stellar reviews, about the @no7uk skincare line, so i knew i had to get my hands on these products! no7 beautiful skin day cream for normal / dry skin is enriched with rosehip oil to smooth dry areas. though i'm predominately combination skin, i chose this as an alternative, as i'm extremely dry and dehydrated in the colder months. its active ingredient, rosehip oil, is full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids,that are known to counteract hyperpigmentation and hydrate dry skin, all while reducing scars and eradicating fine lines!! no7 lift & luminate day & night serum provides triple action to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, visibly lift and even skin tone, and is also clinically proven to help diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation. (in love!!) 😍 the combination, of these two products, is a skincare powerhouse! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

Vitamin c, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water soluble vitamin that is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and readily available as a dietary supplement. humans, unlike most animals, are unable to synthesize vitamin c endogenously, so ultimately, it is an essential dietary component. vitamin c is required for the biosynthesis of collagen. it is essentially the blt of skincare, as it brightens, lightens, and tightens the skin. @algenistbeauty genius ultimate anti aging vitamin c+ serum is a powerful formula that combines alguronic acid, a breakthrough anti-aging ingredient, with nourishing microalgae oil and a potent vitamin c derivative, to help visibly minimize fine lines and wrinkles and reduce the appearance of age spots and discoloration, making this an vital component, of any daytime skincare regime. πŸ’†πŸΌ‍β™‚οΈπŸ’†πŸ»πŸ’¦

Nip + fab glycolic fix night pads contain ingredients conducive to normal to oily skin types. "what denotes an oily skin type," you ask?! enlarged, impacted, congested pores(comedones), t-zone- all over shine(uncontrollable production of oil from sebaceous glands), breakouts. these can be exacerbated, when using ingredients not indicative of our concerns. this cleanser's key component, glycolic acid, is a powerhouse ingredient, for a multitude of reasons! its the smallest molecular compound of its group, making it readily able to deeply p*******e the skin. it's a sugar cane derivative(um so cool!πŸ‡πŸ―πŸ€—). it resides within the active compound, alphahydroxy acid family, which means it works superficially. aha's, work on the sounds surface, and stem from plants or milk products to help p*******e skin, leaving it the most effective for treating and inhibiting fine lines and wrinkles, acne/scarring, pore size, blackheads, hydration, dullness, oiliness and hyperpigmentation, melasma, by loosening the "intracellular glue," connecting dead skin cells. it penetrates at least one to several layers of dead cells attached to the skin's surface, making it an intricate, vital component, to any skincare routine! with that being said, i am currently in love with @nipandfab's glycolic fix night pads. each pad is saturated with 5% glycolic acid. i cannot get over how effective, yet affordable the entire glycolic line is! i alternate these with my retinol, as you never want to use the two together. glycolic acid promotes degradation and compromises the efficacy of retinol, diminishing its benefits, so be sure to not use them simultaneously. and as always, be sure to pair this with your favorite sunscreen! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ’†πŸ»πŸ’¦
