Explore The Top 3 Exfoliants

Top Benefits of Exfoliant Products

Aestheticians are key professionals in the Skincare industry; their vast experience, combined with ongoing education, will provide patients like you and I, the best and most effective products the market has to offer in order to achieve a radiant, beautiful complexion. According to Dermascope – “In our struggling economy, we all work hard to make the best choices when choosing which products to use so as to maximize results while minimizing costs in the treatment room. We also have to carefully consider these factors when recommending to our clientele what they should use for their home care regimen to complement the treatments we provide.”

Why exfoliate? 

Is your complexion a target to minor breakouts? Well, using a good exfoliant product will balance your skin ph levels by controlling sebum production while treating and normalizing clogged skin with blackheads, white-heads, and minor acne breakouts.

Does your skin feel tight? Dehydrated? Do you have dry, scaly patches? By exfoliating, you will remove dead cells buildup, and your complexion will regain the radiant, glowing, and refreshed look again!

Exfoliants may restore radiance and a youthful appearance to the skin. Exfoliants containing natural marine extract will remove dead skin cells and impurities.

Best Eyeliner and Eye-shadow

“The best thing is to look natural, but it takes makeup to look natural.”
~ Calvin Klein

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! But isn’t true  beauty also natural? Of course it is! We may cover up blemishes and tired skin with make-up, but we can still look natural and refreshed, right? The answer is always a big  YES!!!

I love make-up. It’s fun and makes me feel pretty. Finding the right products was a little challenging, considering I have allergies and my skin is hypersensitive. My make-up has to stay put for the entire day, or until when I decide to wash it off. Constant touch-up, running eyeliners, smudging shadows, are amongst my biggest pet peeves, and will not stand for them. Does anyone want to look like a losing boxer? What do I mean by that? Hmmmm, walking around with two black eyes? No, not pretty! How about eyeliners that burn your eyes so much, causing them to tear the entire day?  Thanks but no thanks! There are brands which I stick by because they totally work for me, today I’m going to share them with you.  Please CLICK on images for product details and ordering.
