What is SkinMedica®?
The SkinMedica® line of products, including chemical peels, was created to improve the appearance of the skin and diminish the first signs of aging. These professional skin care products combine research-tested ingredients such as antioxidants, essential fatty acids, hyaluronic acids, retinoids and growth factors.
What Skin Concerns Does SkinMedica® Treat?
SkinMedica® can be used to treat all skin types. The products are specially formulated to treat skin conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, aging, sun damage and acne.
What Is the Obagi® Skin Care Line?
The Obagi® skin care line was specially designed to restore youth and elasticity to aging skin. This line of skin products has prescription strength ingredients and Penetrating Therapeutics technology, which erases skin imperfections and improves the overall appearance of the skin.
Why Choose Obagi®?
Many of the products purchased in department stores and drugstores mask concerns instead of fixing them. The Obagi® line of skin care products is made to correct the failing skin functions that lead to wrinkles and discoloration. These prescription strength products are able to alter the way the skin functions, which, in turn, produces long lasting results.
What Skin Concerns Does Obagi® Treat?
The Obagi® products can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns. Obagi® products can fight signs of aging skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, and hyperpigmentation and skin laxity. They can also be used to get rid of acne, blackheads, and enlarged pores.
What Products Does Obagi® Offer?
Obagi® offers a number of excellent products for a wide range of skin concerns. The Obagi® CLENZIderm system is a three-step acne treatment that helps clear up acne, and the Obagi® Nu-Derm system helps address all of the signs of aging. The Obagi®-C Rx System is a Vitamin C infused skin care line that fights off wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. The Obagi® Professional-C Serums are made with age-defying L-ascorbic acids, and the Obagi® Eye Treatments are specially formulated for the sensitive skin around the eyes.
Epionce® is rooted in hard science and integrates over 20 years of clinical skin research. Epionce® provides the foundation to address your unique skin care needs. From improving the visible appearance of skin aging to problem skin, Epionce® has a regimen to solve your specific skin concerns.
“Epionce® is an evidence-based professional product line sold exclusively through physicians and other licensed skin care professionals to ensure you receive a comprehensive and effective skin care program specific to your needs.”
What Is Elta® Sunscreen?
Elta® sunscreens are formulated to protect the skin from the damage caused by UVA and UVB rays. The sunscreen offers broad spectrum coverage. With daily use, this coverage can prevent skin damage, signs of aging, skin cancer and sunburn. The formula is noncomedogenic and water-resistant, which means it won’t clog pores or be affected by water or perspiration. The sunscreens use transparent zinc oxide to block UVA and UVB rays. This ingredient is a natural mineral, and it is safe to use on all skin types.
What is Badger Sunscreen?
Badger sunscreens offer full broad spectrum protection using the mineral zinc oxide as the only active ingredient. The certified natural and organic sunscreen base of plant oils, aloe, and beeswax provides valuable anti-oxidants and moisturizes your skin. Their sunscreens have earned top ratings for safety and efficacy by the Environmental Working Group and are recommended far and wide!
Jane Iredale® Mineral Makeup
The makeup for the new millennium. Formulated with pure micronized minerals and pigments, these all-natural cosmetics have the ability to cover almost any skin problem. Unlike so many makeup collections, the Jane Iredale® line contains no oil to clog or enlarge pores and no talc, which can dry the skin.
Individuals who use Jane Iredale® mineral makeup enjoy a blend of natural, glowing beauty with healthier rejuvenated skin. The concentrated minerals provide customizable coverage and accentuation while allowing the skin to breathe normally, and the algae extracts soothe the skin, provide antioxidants and prevent dehydration. With a proven track record of safety and health benefits, Jane Iredale® minerals are favored by dermatologists and plastic surgeons worldwide.
Jane Iredale® mineral powders are especially valued for their ability to conceal nearly any imperfection including rosacea, acne, and redness from a recent chemical peel. These mineral powders act as a combination of foundation, concealer, powder and sunscreen, thus fulfilling multiple roles at once and eliminating the need for several different products. These mineral makeup products also offer the following features:
- Non-comedogenic, meaning they will not clog the pores
- SPF 20 with broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection
- Safety tested, dermatologist tested and allergy tested
- Anti-inflammatory with calming and soothing effects
- Water-resistant as rated by an approved FDA laboratory
- Made with pure mineral pigments; no fillers such as talc
- Will not run, crease or smear
The pure, concentrated minerals in these products create a soft-focus, lightweight effect without caking or creasing to give your skin a sheer, luminous appearance. The pharmaceutical, certified organic ingredients create a high-quality product that gives you an even skin texture with just the coverage you need.
What are Blinc™ Products?
Blinc™ mascara is unique. Instead of coating the lashes with paint like traditional mascaras, Blinc™ mascara coats the lashes in tiny, water-resistant tubes. These beauty tubes are foolproof. Once the Blinc™ product has been applied, it won’t smudge, clump or run. Blinc™ mascara lasts all day long, from the office to the gym to a night out on the town.
Blinc™ eyeliner pencil offers unsurpassed hold while conditioning and treating skin at the same time. The blinc™ eyeliner pencil was created to feature waterproof
What Is Latisse®?
Latisse® is a specially formulated product designed for women suffering from poorly defined or short lashes. While you can wear thick mascara or apply fake eyelashes, many find that those products are only a temporary solution and that the products don’t work as effectively as they might like. Latisse® offers a permanent solution to your eyelash worries. Laboratory studies found that users witnessed dramatic results in just a few weeks.
Before applying Latisse®, you must use makeup remover or soap and water to thoroughly remove all traces of makeup, lotion, and skincare products from your face and dry the skin with a soft cloth. Latisse® comes with both a bottle of the solution and an applicator. Hold the applicator horizontally as you place a single drop of the solution on it. Place the tip of the applicator on the inside edge of your upper eyelid and slowly move it across the skin. Use the same motion that you would use when applying eyeliner. Gently blot the eyelid with a soft cloth or cotton ball to remove any of the excess liquid. You’ll apply Latisse® at least once a day to your upper eyelids. Most users make it part of their nightly routines. They apply the solution to their eyelids after taking a shower or getting ready for bed.
