How to get Healthy, Blemish free Skin


The secret to beautiful skin is much simpler than you probably imagined. Signs of distress include irritation brittle skin, itchy skin, rough skin, dull skin, hyperpigmentation and lack of resilience. These can all be remedied by 4 simple strategies: Trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) reduction, irritation reduction, improvement of the dermal-epidermal junction and spot treatments for hyperpigmentation.

  1. Trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) reduction: TEWL is referring to the measurement of the quantity of water that passes from the inside of the body through the epidermal layer (skin) to the surrounding atmosphere through means of evaporation or diffusion. To reduce this TEWL, we recommend avoiding prolonged sun and wind exposure. It is also important to regularly treat your skin with powerful moisturizing ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid, Aloe vera, Allantoin, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), and Honey Extract.

We recommend our Pure Hyaluronic acid Serum

  1. Reduction of Irritation: Exfoliation is an important factor towards having healthy skin; however excessive exfoliation can have detrimental results on your skin. We recommend exfoliating 1-3 times a week, limiting stronger exfoliation methods such as peels to once every 1-4 weeks. It is also important to use regenerating ingredients like Provitamin B5, Coenzyme Q10, Tepezcohuite, Mango extract, and Vitamin A

We recommend our Coenzyme Q10 Cream

  1. Improvement of Dermal Epidermal Junction: This are of the skin is the cell-free zone that is located between the dermis and epidermis. Its purpose is to control the passage of ingredients and also regulate cell turnover (Every 10 days for facial skin and every 14 days for skin on the body). To maximize the health of this area, we recommend ingredients such as glycan peptides, syn-coll, pumpkin seed extract, and pepha tight.

We recommend our Pro Face Lift Serum

  1. Improvement of Dermal Epidermal Junction: Each individual has a unique balance of hormones. During perimenopause and menopause this unique balance can be disrupted. This can result in many changes to your body including an excess production of melanin resulting in melasma. The first steps to take are to take a look at your diet and lifestyle and make the necessary changes in order to reduce the risk of Candida overgrowth and estrogenic activity in the body. It is also necessary to use proper sun protection on a regular basis, and reduce stress levels as much as possible. We recommend consulting with your physician to determine a strategy for balancing your hormones. Once the hormones are balanced, we recommend using a hydroquinone based lightening serum for harder to treat hyperpigmentation issues. For superficial hyperpigmentation issues that don’t lie too deep in the dermis, we recommend and arbutin or kojic acid based cream.

We recommend either our melasma 4 serum or our arbutin skin lightening cream.
