NEW PRODUCT ALERT – DUAL EFFECT FILLER SERUM

WHAT IS IT AND WHAT DOES IT DO?

Dr. Des explains: “As we age, it is natural for the skin to lose Hyaluronic Acid as well as fat in the dermis. This aggravates the appearance of photodamage but even if one has less photodamage, the skin still appears ‘deflated’. With reference to Hyaluronic Acid, we know that good levels of vitamin A are the main boosters of natural Hyaluronic Acid, but the enzyme processes still deteriorate as we age, and we need to address the effects of Hyaluronic Acid directly.

When we analyze cosmetic procedures, we find the fillers and Botulinum injections are overwhelming drivers of this market. Many consumers do fillers and while that may be an excellent response to larger hollow areas when done by an expert, many end up with an unnatural appearance. What many people need is just to improve the cushion of fat in the skin and boost the Hyaluronic Acid status to make the skin look ‘re-inflated’. Environ wants to offer a dual-action, non-invasive alternative or addition that is easy, painless, milder and results in a more natural enhancement.“

Dual-Effect Filler Serum focuses on promoting the appearance of fuller-looking, well cushioned skin by complementing what can be achieved by dermal fillers.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Scientific research has shown that:

OptimHyalTM: New generation Hyaluronic Acid technology, that works with the skin’s own science. This substance, obtained by biofermentation, helps to restore the optimal level of Hyaluronic Acid by stimulating Hyaluronic Acid neosynthesis and by sustaining its renewal. In addition, OptimHyalTM supports the effects of elastin synthesis to help the skin better withstand the effects of the stresses to which it is subjected. On cultured keratinocytes and human skin explants, OptimHyalTM showed its ability to stimulate the effects of Hyaluronic Acid synthesis and regulate the synthesis of its receptor CD44, which was decreased in the experimentally induced aging model. OptimHyalTM was able to contribute to maintaining the benefits of the “water sphere” surrounding the keratinocyte. OptimHyalTM smoothes out the appearance of wrinkles, moisturizes, and makes the skin look more supple and resistant.

Adifyline®: Adifyline® peptide solution targets the look of facial redefining, and where a replenishing effect is desired. This peptide increases the benefits of local adipocyte volume improving facial appearance and providing a curvy silhouette appearance, by promoting the effects of PGC-1a expression and lipid accumulation in the adipose tissue.

ReproageTM: ReproageTM peptide solution modulates the effects of the levels of microRNA-145, which is involved in the regulation of epidermal differentiation. It may support the benefits of cell reprogramming to boost the appearance of radiance and youthfulness of the skin complexion.

Focus-On Filler Treatment:

A powerful 30-minute treatment option that offers Environ clients a non-invasive alternative or complementary treatment to injectables.

  • Smoothing, plumping, volumizing effects
  • Natural-looking enhancement
  • Focus areas: forehead, eyes and cheeks (upper half of the face)

The Secret to Beautiful Skin: Moisturize and Hydrate!

Achieving beautiful, healthy-looking skin is our mission at Joanna Young Skin. It’s common to deal with the appearance of dry, dull skin throughout the year, or think that signs of aging are inevitable. However, you can discover the appearance of radiant, healthy, younger-looking skin regardless of the season or your age! Our super moisturizers and hydrators in our Environ Focus Care Moisture+ range can help you achieve your skin care goals. Here’s what you need to know!

Super Hydration For Dry Skin
When we say “intensive hydrating” we really mean it. Use a serum that contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA) – a naturally-occurring known moisture magnet derived from plant extracts. Include it in your skin care routine, and your hydrated-looking skin will thank you with a visibly smoother, plumper and more resilient appearance.

Gentle Exfoliation 1-2 Times Per Week
It is important to include a mild exfoliating product at lease 1-2 time per week. Exfoliation can help revitalize the look of tired, aging or problematic skin. Use an alpha hydroxy acid, AHA, cream that contains a combination of fruit acids, to gently and naturally exfoliate the skin. You’ll be left with a moisturized and hydrated looking complexion and a radiant glow!

Moisturize Your Skin
You should thoroughly nourish and refresh your skin with a moisturizer. Look for a variety of dynamic moisturizers and emollients in one product which can enhance the effects of the function of your skin’s moisture barrier and improve the benefits of the natural moisture factors. It comforts and soothes the look of irritated skin, and can be used over your other products to help relieve the appearance of dry skin.

Try Super Moisturizer
This hydrating face cream can help you achieve the appearance of silky soft skin that looks truly revitalized and vibrant. The antioxidants in them are known to combat the effects of harmful environmental influences associated with visible signs of aging, such as sun damage and air pollution.

Finally, don’t forget your sunscreen!

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!

The Truth About Skin Scrubbers

The process of face scrubbing helps to remove our dead skin cells in the top dead layer of our skin. It signals to the living cells below it to speed up the maturing process a little. As a result, we deliver a boost to our younger, healthier cells, telling them to move up and that creates a rejuvenating effect.

Have oily, acne-prone or thicker skin?

Exfoliation may be a must-do beauty care step because these types of skin could need a little extra exfoliation than normal. If you decide to try using face or body scrubbers, start with a gentle scrub, loofah, or a washcloth. Here at Joanna Young Skin offer ZOE Bliss devices. Their latest Sonic Beauty Device cleanses, massages, and applies skincare for optimum short and long-term results. With an innovative design and revolutionary Transdermal Sonic Technology, ZOE Bliss delivers 7000 micro-
pulsations per minute to cleanse, exfoliate, massage, maximize skin care product penetration and absorption on a cellular level. This helps to reduce
signs of aging and to reinvigorate the glow to your skin.

Have normal or combination skin?

The right amount of time for all skin types can vary between once or twice a week, but there are no two exact skin types…DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU. Try once a week to start then move up to two times a week.

Word of Caution

Exfoliation is not as harmless for our skin as it might look. Too much scrubbing can lead to irritation and even puffiness. To prevent inflammation, choose a way that meets your skin type and needs.

Oops I over-exfoliated… now what?

Tried a new exfoliation tool or used a chemical exfoliator with a tool? We have products that will help soothe the skin and restore the barrier.

How to Tell If Your Skin Is Dehydrated

If your skin is looking lackluster, dull, or looking less than great, you might be wondering, am I dehydrated?

  • Here are some signs of dehydration that you should look for on your skin:
    • Your skin may be dull, may look paler than usual.
    • You’ll see dark circles under your eyes like you’re tired.
    • Your face will have more contours than usual and not in a good way.
    • You may see sunken eyes and cheeks.
    • Fine lines or wrinkles may appear or increase.

You may also experience other symptoms in the rest of your body. These can include tiredness, weakness, dry mouth, and your pee will be darker in color than usual. If you have any of these, you may be dehydrated.

Aside from that, there is one very simple test you can carry out at home to check your hydration.

  • Here’s how:
    1. On the back of your hand, pinch your skin between your finger and your thumb.
    2. Now let go and watch how long it takes for the skin to return to its usual shape.
      • If it takes more than 1-2 seconds, you may be dehydrated.

If you are dehydrated, it’s time to make sure you increase your water intake. Aim to drink around eight glasses of water today to maintain a healthy water balance for your body.

How to Pick the Best Acid for Your Skin

When shopping for new skin care products, you may notice there is a long list of acids and ingredients you cannot pronounce and may not recognize. It is important to know what each kind of acid can do to your face and what skin type of skin it is best for.

Glycolic acid is very common in skin care. It exfoliates the skin, reduces fine lines, hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and helps with uneven skin tone. This acid is for all skin types and is great for those who have wrinkles and fine lines.

Salicylic is another common acid. This will exfoliate the skin, clear your pores, treat breakouts, and build your elastin and collagen. It is recommended for those who have combination, oily, or acne-prone skin.

Hyaluronic acid will hydrate and plump the skin by drawing in moisture from surrounding environments. This is for all skin types, especially best for dry or acne prone skin that needs an oil-free option.

L-ascorbic acid is also known as pure vitamin C. This is an anti-inflammatory that prevents UV damage, stimulates collagen, and brightens your skin tone. This acid is perfect for all skin types.

Ferulic acid will enhance vitamin A, promote healthy skin, prevent sun damage, fight free radicals, and protect collagen. Like L-ascorbic acid, this is perfect for all skin types.

Citric Acid speeds up cell renewal and balances the pH of your skin. This is best for those with hyperpigmented skin, have dark spots. This will agitate sensitive skin.

Lactic acid exfoliates the skin, speeds up cell turnover, and is naturally occurring. This is great for all skin types, particularly those with acne scarring.

Now that you know a little bit more about the acids that could be found in your face washes, cleansers, and toners, you can choose a product better suited for your skin.
