BOOOOOOST!!!!! your Skin into Fall Season

October is a month for Pumpkins…So we here at Resnik Skin Institute are celebrating the pumpkin and its amazing source of vitamins and anti-oxidants and enzymes all month long. I am doing Pumpkin Spice Facials and as a gift you get a jar of Pumpkin Spice Mask to take home with you so you continue using once a week experiencing all the great vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants!

You can tell pumpkin is good for you by its bright color. Not only is pumpkin loaded with vitamin A and antioxidant carotenoids, particularly alpha and beta-carotenes, it’s a good source of vitamins C, K, and E, with lots of minerals, including magnesium, potassium, and iron.

Don’t let the word CHEMICAL scare you

For those of us who have fine lines, sun spots (NEVER called AGE spots), a little Melasma, accompanied with a hint of under eye crepiness I have two words CHEMICAL PEELS.

In the past anti-aging chemical peels ended up more closely resembling chemical burns and so peels got a bad rap. However chemical peels have not disappeared. Instead, they’ve gotten a makeover – a dramatic one! Thank goodness. There are still some super awesome peels that slough off the dead, the dull and the pore-clogging layer of skin cells such as our “Perfect Ten Peel”. The Perfect 10 Peel is an ideal, non-invasive, low-cost alternative for patients seeking immediate result with minimal discomfort and little downtime. It is specially formulated to be a gentle yet uniquely powerful peel treatment. The hallmark of the Perfect 10 Peels is that it provides actual visible peeling. Don’t let the word CHEMICAL scare you. Not all chemicals are created equal (or evil).

ESCARGOT ANYONE?

Escargot is the French word for SNAILS…Why am I writing about snails in a beauty and skincare blog? Reason is snail secretion aka Snail Slime has become a top skin-care phenomenon. Snail slime has been an in-demand ingredient in beauty products for years, prized for its supposed anti-aging and skin-rejuvenating properties.

Asian women have used snail slime for quite a long while now. However, for the truly adventurous, spas in Tokyo have started offering facials using real live snails leaving their slippery mucus trail all over your face! Yum!

VITAMIN C Your Rx for Anti-Aging

There are 4 things everyone should know about this very special “Multi-tasking” powerhouse.  It is an Antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory, Anti-aging and a Collagen Stimulator in other words it’s the # 1 Top Secret to Flawless Skin.  Ladies, this is one secret you’ll also want to share with your guy. Anti-Aging isn’t just for women anymore.  Perhaps you’ve noticed his face feels a little dry when you kiss him?  Maybe yours is a little flakey?

Vitamin C creams and serums are highly sought after for their ability to reduce lines, wrinkles and discoloration.  

Vitamin C is critical for your body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy, resilient skin. While young our skin is full of vitamin C, unfortunately aging skin naturally loses this nutrient over time. Other factors like exposure to UV light, pollutants and cigarette smoke compound the decline of vitamin C, while contributing to signs of aging big time. The good news is that you can fight back by replenishing your skin’s vitamin C levels helping to combat and even reverse time’s effect on your face.
