The Dangers of Sun Damage

The Dangers of Sun Damage

Daily and proper use of the correct sunscreen is one of the most powerful anti aging tools for keeping your skin looking young and healthy and reducing your risk of skin cancer.  Use of sunscreen should be a daily habit regardless of the season or weather.   When purchasing a sunscreen ensure that it provides both UVA and UVB protection.  My favorite sunscreen is the Control Correctives Aroma Matte sunscreen SPF 30.  This product provides great protection while at the same time a very pleasant experience to use.  It gives nice hydration without feeling too heave and has a great soft watermelon scent.

Antioxidants need to be used in tandem along with sunscreen to enhance the skin’s ability to fight off free radical damage. Free radical damage is caused by exposure to environmental factors such as the sun and pollution. (more…)

April’s Product of the Month – Green Tea Antioxidant Cleanser

Green Tea Antioxidant Cleanser by Vivant Skin Care 

A universal face and body cleanser fortified with antioxidants Green Tea, Grape Seed and Kiwi Extracts. Gently foams away impurities while preserving the skin’s natural acid mantle. Great for all skin types, including rosacea

skin360 product review:

A good cleanser sets the stage for application of all products that follow. If you don’t use the right cleanser the pH of your skin will not be able to utilize all the great serums and treatment crèmes to their maximum potential. Many products on the market contain harsh detergents that over strip the skin and disturb the natural acid mantel of the epidermis. Vivant’s Green Tea Antioxidant Cleanser completely removes all traces of dirt, oil and make up while still allowing your skin to feel soft and not tight/dry like harsh cleansers can. (more…)

March’s Product of the Month – Derm A Gel

Derm A Gel by Vivant Skin Care

A daily Vitamin A therapy formulated to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots, smooth skin texture and flush out impacted pores. Designed to treat clients that have acne, hyper-pigmentation or overall skin rejuvenation.

Key Ingredients: Retinyl Propionate, Kojic Acid, Lactic Acid, Urea, Niacinamide

skin360 product review:

The Vivant Skin Care line has created a patented Vitamin A Propionate that is a key ingredient in their therapeutic products. I love this product as it is versatile to treat many skin issues and concerns. The Vitamin A in this product is molecularly small enough to penetrate to a level deep enough in the skin to provide a noticeable therapeutic benefit but not so much so as to cause redness and peeling as with most traditional forms of Vitamin A products. For my clients that are not used to using professional level products I recommend using every other or every third night and conditioning their skin to ultimately use every night. (more…)
