Tips to prevent dry skin this winter.

-Do apply moisturizer over entire face and body after showering.
-Do take fish oil or essential fatty acids every day.
Fish oils will moisturize skin from the inside out.
-Do remember to wear SPF when exposing your skin to the sun for more than 30 minutes.
-Do keep SPF in the car and apply to the side of your face that is exposed to the sun.
It's common to have sun damage to one side of your face that is consistently exposed to the sun.
-Do apply SPF chapstick to lips when needed.

-Don't forget to change your face and body wash to a more moisturizing type.
-Don't shower with hot water.
It will dry out your skin.
-Don't forget to moisturize your skin as soon as you dry off.
You want to trap moisture into the skin.
-Don't blast the heat in your car on extreme cold days.
The extreme change in temperature can damage fragile facial capillaries.
Wearing a heavy moisturizer will help allow the skin time to adjust from extreme temperatures.
-Don't blow your nose so hard! This can damage capillaries around the nose.
-Don't forget to use fragrance free laundry soap and fragrance free fabric softener.
Your skin will thank you!

Vitamin C... your skin care must have. 

The truth is that scientists have taken a fresh look at C -- and have found lots of new ways it can help you stay healthy and look and feel younger. Here's the latest on what C can really do for you.
Prevent wrinkles
You can't pick up a beauty product these days without the label touting its antioxidants. There's a good reason: Antioxidants -- like vitamin C -- help turn back the clock.
An October 2007 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that people who ate foods rich in vitamin C had fewer wrinkles and less age-related dry skin than those whose diets contained only small amounts of the Vitamin. C helps form collagen, which smooths fine lines and wrinkles.
The key seems to be C's ability to fight free radicals, a by-product of cell metabolism in your body. Free radicals are thought to attack proteins, fats, and DNA and break down collagen. C also seems to guard against ultraviolet rays from the sun, which can lead to freckles and a mottled complexion.
Just a spritz once or twice daily after cleansing will not only protect your skin from pollution and other enviormental free radicals, your skin will take on a fresh healthy glow!

Glycolic Acid study by Eugene Van Scott,MD  
Dr. Van Scott of the Temple University department of dermatology have proven glycolic acid to be a very potent skin rejuvenator that begins to exfoliate almost immediately upon application. Because it is such a good exfoliant, some people worry that it might thin their skin. Rest assured, it isn't cause for concern.

Some people report significant cosmetic improvement within days of begining glycolic acid treatment.

Why not try it yourself? Just remember to start out with a less is more program. Use Glycolic Cell Turnover once a week, next week twice a week if you don't have any tingling our pinkness to the skin. This product is very strong and very effective. Once a week may be enough. If you are uncertain, just send me an email and I will guide you.

Glycolic Acid...what's all the fuss about?  
Glycolic Acid
By Angela Palmer, About.com Guide
Created: February 04, 2009

Definition:
An alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from sugar cane. One of the most well-known and widely used AHAs, glycolic acid is used to smooth wrinkles, fade hyperpigmentation and sun damage, and generally improve the tone and texture of the skin. As such, it is often used in anti-aging products.

Glycolic acid, because of the small size of its molecules, can easily penetrate the skin. It helps loosen the bonds that hold skin cells together, allowing dead skin cells to slough off more effectively. The skin feels softer and smoother, and its overall appearance is enhanced.

Glycolic acid can be found in over-the-counter products, such as cleansers, masks and moisturizers. It is also utilized in stronger chemical peels available at your salon or your dermatologist's office. It can cause sun sensitivity, so you must wear sunscreen whenever you are using glycolic acid treatments.
