On Wedneday Evolutions Medical Spa in Santa Barbara hosted an event called Crazy Gorgeous Skin which was dedicated to home care regimens for your skin. We had several representatives on hand for some of the skin care products that we carry such as Revaleskin, DNA, Colorescience and Clarisonic. We had a great turn out and several of our guests won generous raffle prizes! One client won the Revaleskin basket with the Day Cream SPF 15, Night Cream and Replenishing Eye Therapy cream. Revaleskin products are made with the potent CoffeeBerry® extract that is rich in antioxidants to fend off aging and cell damage. Our client was so pleased that she promised us that she would review the product after a few weeks use. Stay tuned for a guest blog post soon!
RETINOIDS help to normalize skin cell growth. They decrease the development of abnormal cells (such as cancer), pigment clumping (brown spots), and the activity of some enzymes that cause skin degradation. They also work to increase collagen and elastic production, which makes the skin look healthier and more youthful.
SUN PROTECTION (UV Protection) is the most basic and important thing you can do for your skin. It is critical to wear a broadband (UVA and UVB) sunscreen every day as the damage UV radiation causes leads to premature aging, abnormal pigmentation, spider veins, and skin cancer. UVB rays cause sunburns and directly damage DNA. UVA rays penetrate more deeply, creating oxidative damage that causes aging and skin sagging. Please note that UVA rays are present even on cloudy days and the majority of sun damage is caused by incidental exposure (not “laying out”). If you do nothing else for your skin, wear a good sunscreen daily!
