Anti-Aging Skincare Tips

Use More Sensitive Skin Cleanser
Over the years, skin tends to lose its natural oils. It becomes drier and more sensitive so tell me why you are still using that aggressive anti-acne wash you saw from TikTok? If you are over 30, pick something gentle for cleansing and avoid ingredients that could be drying! Try our Sorella Milk Cleanser for a more hydrating experience.

Pay Attention to Your Diet
This rule applies to any age, actually. Still, things get more serious as the years pass by. Avoid alcohol as it dehydrates your skin. Foods high in sugars can do even worse: they make you look older. Instead, choose more protein, eat products rich in vitamin C, and consume more fatty acids like oils and avocado. Read our blog on our top foods!

Don’t Forget About SPF
SPF should always be applied at any age! The younger the better and its never too late to start wearing it. If you were using alcohol-containing SPF creams, switch to more moisturizing sunscreen products that contain antioxidants. And keep in mind, that good sun protection should be SPF 30 and above. The Sorella Quench & Protect is hydrating and contains SPF 30 if thats not a perfect match show me a better one!

Exfoliate
We all have dead cells on our faces! They are not replaced by new skin as quickly as you may think. To speed up this process, it’s necessary to exfoliate. Still, keep in mind that harsh methods are no good here. Focus on chemical quality exfoliants and use cosmetics with AHA/BHA.

Moisturize
The years make our skin dry out and living in California does not help…one day its pouring rain and the next day we are in a heat wave! This is when wrinkles step in. To ensure they appear as late as possible, you should fall in love with hydration. Avoid anything that can cause water-loss and choose moisturizers rich in hyaluronic acid as it is great at preventing water from evaporating. Call us for recommendations but check out what we have available and draw questions from there.

Get Facials
Getting monthly or bi-monthly facials help to get a deep clean and really treat concerns but your skincare professional cant do it alone! you should follow the tips above and follow the home care they have assigned for you to do! Book your next facial with Joanna Young Skin!

Tone, Tone, Tone!

Does your skin really need a toner?

Most of us are well aware of the “cleansing, toning, moisturizing” formula. But is the second step really necessary? What is it for, anyway?

First of all, toner is designed to remove what’s left on your skin after cleansing, be it makeup leftovers, dirt, etc. Aside from that, toner has lots of other advantages and benefits, making it too important to exclude toning from your daily skincare routine. Let’s take a closer look at what they are. 

Balancing pH level
In other words, toner prepares your skin for absorbing moisturizing cream, serum or fluid. It helps the substance get inside those pores and do its job. If you skip toner, you probably have to wait a little time till your cream is fully absorbed.

Exfoliating
Toners that contain exfoliating components (glycolic acids, etc) are great at helping your skin renew itself faster and wipe off the dead skin cells.

Rejuvenating
Some toners contribute to your skin’s elasticity and slow the aging process. If this is your case, choose toners with hyaluronic acid along with moisturizing and anti-aging creams.Refreshing When you feel that your skin is dirty or oily, just use toner to refresh it. If you are on the go on a hot day and your face needs immediate hydration, toner is there to help.

The bottom line?
It’s hard to say that toner works alone as an autonomous beauty product. It’s more like a supportive weapon. Using a toner won’t change your skin, far from it. What it will do is to strengthen the effect of the other beauty products you apply.

Micro-Channeling on the rise!

Micro-Channeling, what is that?

Micro-Channeling is a minimally invasive skin treatment that targets and diminishes the appearance of visible wrinkles, unwanted acne scars, and sun-spots. During the treatment, Joanna creates tiny pinholes to the outermost layer of the skin promoting a natural healing response. The pinholes also function as micro-channels for quick absorption when the serum is applied to the skin. The serum activates collagen-producing cells in your body to increase collagen production and create permanent new healthy skin!

Micro-channeling may be used as a separate treatment only or as an additional add-on to other skin treatments to enhance the effectiveness of skin health. To get an idea, Hydrafacial or chemical peels are perfect treatments for Micro-channeling pairing.

I am interested, can you tell me more about the procedure?

I myself, love this procedure. I highly recommended Micro-channeling to all my clients that are looking to improve their skin health, in the least abrasive way.

The treatment requires the usage of a handheld device, lightly grazing across the skin using a stamping motion type of pattern. Unlike micro-needling, this instrument does not cause damage or trauma to the surface of the skin. These microscopic abrasions stimulate and produces new collagen and elastin.

After the stamping phase is complete, we apply a skin serum to target areas to nourish the skin and regenerate new skin cells. There will be some downtime during the recovery stage, but it should be no longer than a few days. You can do your face, arms, neck, and stomach to regenerate tighter healthier skin.
