March Beauty Tip

  • “It’s all about the light. Always face it, because that’s how you give your face good angles. If you’re outside when the sun is overhead, you’re going to have dark circles from the sun creating shadows on your face. So no outdoor pictures between 12 and two.”
  • “Always, always powder your T-zone and the lines going from your nose down around your mouth so you don’t look like a bulldog. When those areas are shiny, it’s awful. And gloss will keep your lips from appearing dehydrated.”
  • Staying in shape – “I love outdoor sports, like volleyball, and I play them whenever I can. But my secret is that I watch TV maybe twice a year. I’m not a potato sack; I’ve never sat on my couch. If I’m home, I’m cleaning, feeding my dogs, doing stuff. Life is too precious to waste time.”
March Fav ProductAustralis Cosmetics have a new liquid eyeliner that tries to help those of us who are ‘challenged’ in drawing a straight line!

The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism will be, so you’ll torch more calories as you go about your day.
So quick and easy!March Beauty Question

Q – PIGMENTATION – How do I treat it?A – It has many causes, but treating it is basically the same regardless of the cause. Whether it is skin pigmentation, hyper pigmentation,  chloasma, dark spots, mask of pregnancy, melasma, age spots, pimple scarring or sun damage – its all the same and we don’t like it.Action plan

  • Use a good exfoliator to encourage skin renewal.  Something with enzymes or alpha hydroxy acids is best.
  • Treat  skin pigmentation with a quality product specifically designed to correct dark spots. You’re looking for something with ingredients like alpha hydroxy, lactic, citric and salicylic acids, which increase skin turnover to shed pigmentation in surface layers of the skin.
  • SPF, SPF, SPF – every day – all day!!!
  • Melanin inhibitors – Is exactly as it suggests. Inhibits melanin from coming to the surface of your skin to cause pigmentation.

1. Kojic Acid

Kojic acid is derived from Koji (a Japanese mushroom). Kojic acid lightens the skin by inhibiting the production of an enzyme in the skin called tyrosinase which in turn reduces the amount of melanin produced. Kojic acid is one of the most popular natural ingredients found in skin lightening products.

2. Mulberry

This skin lightening ingredient is extracted from the roots of the paper mulberry plant. Mulberry is said to be more effective than kojic acid in the sense that significantly lower concentrations are needed to have the same effect as higher concentrations of kojic acid.

3. Alpha Arbutin

Alpha arbutin has a stronger effect than beta-arbutin and is also commonly found in skin lightening products.

4. Beta Arbutin (Bearberry Extract)

Beta arbutin (commonly known as just arbutin) is derived from the leaves of bearberry, cranberry and blueberry plants. It works in a similar way to kojic acid, in that it inhibits the production of tyrosinase to restrict the amount of pigment produced. Although naturally derived, it can cause skin irritation in some people with sensitive skin.

5. Glutathione

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that has several health benefits including boosting the immune system and cleansing the liver. The only known side effect of glutathione is skin whitening. All these health benefits plus a smooth, glowing, lighter skin tone – amazing! Glutathione is commonly found in skin lightening pills but can also be used topically when found in skin lightening soaps.

6. Licorice Root

Licorice is commonly used in the skin lightening industry. Licorice also works to inhinit the enzyme tyrosinase to limit the amount of pigment produced. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is particularly effective at fading suntans.

7. Papaya

The papain enzyme found in papaya works to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and reveal new, brighter skin cells beneath. Orange and green papaya are both effective but green papaya contains more of the papain enzyme. This ingredient is most often found in soaps but sometimes in skin lightening creams too.

8. Vitamin A (Retinol)

Vitamin A Acid, also known as retinol increases the rate at which skin cells are renewed. Increased skin cell turnover means that the brighter, fresh skin underneath can be revealed.

9. Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide)

Niacinamide, also known as nicotinamide or Vitamin B3 has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is an effective topical skin lightener and works by inhibiting melanin production in the skin. Vitamin B3 is found in some skin whitening products and sun screens but it is also possible to buy Niacinamide capsules where the contents can be applied directly to the skin.

10. Vitamin C

At concentrations of about 10%, Vitamin C works to suppress the production of pigment in the skin.
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is a derivative of Vitamin C and this is the form of the ingredient
that is commonly found in skin whitening products. Vitamin C can also protect the skin from ultraviolet rays.

These ingredients are not usually intended to work in isolation. An effective skin lightening
treatment combines several of these ingredients as they tend to work well together to produce the desired results.

March Skin Peel Tip

A very common question we get asked here at Homepeel is: When is the best time to do a skin peel so that I don’t have to see many people when my skin is peeling? (Regarding the Green Herb Skin Peel kit)

The answer is very simple.

  • Do the skin peel on a Wednesday night
  • Thursday you will be fine as your skin will seem a little red and flushed only – like sunburn.
  • Friday is basically the same, but as the day goes on, you will find your skin to start to go dry and in some cases start to get flakey. Maybe arrange to take the afternoon off if you are concerned.
  • Saturday and Sunday will be your main skin peeling days.
  • Sunday night you steam your skin and remove all dead skin
  • BRAND NEW SKIN for MONDAY morning
