Recover, Hydrate & Treat

The 3 Keys To Your Best Skin This Fall

As the summer sun sets and the season starts to change, our tans fade and we are left with the effects of the summer sun. Brown spots, freckles and soft wrinkles under our eyes appear, reminding us of the time spent outdoors. Reversing the damage requires maintaining a skincare regimen that includes quality, medical grade skincare ingredients, as well as incorporating medical grade anti-aging treatments and procedures. 

Recover

Recovering from the effects of the summer sun requires key ingredients, such as Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid. Glycolic Acid is best for those with sensitive skin types who have normal-to-dry skin. Salicylic Acid peels are acidic solutions used to rejuvenate the surface of your skin. The solution acts on the outermost skin layers- causing them to disintegrate and be “peeled” away to reveal the underlying, unaffected skin. 

Recovering the health of your skin is now available in the comfort of your home with our H&H Science Glycolic Cleansing Pads. These Glycolic pads will cleanse, degrease, and freshen the skin. It gently exfoliates dead skin and will remove surface debris and oil. Witch Hazel, a proven astringent, helps reduce surface oil and refine pore size. In addition to these glycolic pads, using a retinol every night is key to recovering the health of your skin. As our H&H Science Retinol Plus Smoothing Serum contains a unique combination of retinol and smoothing serum, it helps to enhance the skin, making it smoother and more evenly toned while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Hydrate

The strong summer sun dries out your skin. Transepidermal water loss, or TEWL, happens in both the summer and winter. In order to restore your natural glow, a hydrating moisturizer with key antioxidants, such as Vitamin A, C, E and Green Tea, is necessary. The ideal moisturizer should be selected according to your skin type. Heavier moisturizing creams are ideal for dry skin types, while serums and lotions are ideal for normal to oily skin types. 

Hydrating and firming around the eye areas requires Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid has been nicknamed by the press as, “the key to the fountain of youth.” H&H Science Hydrating & Firming Eye Serum contains Hyaluronic Acid and is an ideal moisturizing cream that tightens and firms around the eye.

Treat

Treating deeper wrinkles and more advanced sun damage, as well as facial blood vessels, requires the use of the latest advances in medical grade treatments and procedures. 

Our Photo Facial Microneedle Tool  combines conventional micro needling with the added benefit of color therapy. Color therapy is used to stimulate the biological activity of the skin at the cellular level. The needling forms micro channels in the skin, allowing increased product penetration. Penetration is further enhanced by the activity of the wavelengths used during the Photon therapy.

This ‘collagen induction therapy’ device effectively improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by plumping up the skin, to create a more youthful appearance. The Photo Facial Microneedle Tool is highly effective in improving a wide variety of skin conditions, such as: rough skin texture, enlarged pores, sun damage, wrinkles, scarring (acne, chicken pox, surgical), stretch marks and lax skin.

Vitamin C Shopping Spree

Vitamin C is one of the most important micronutrients, as it benefits your immune system, reduces your risk of heart disease and prevents wrinkled and saggy skin! It is recommended that you consume at least 65 to 90 mg of Vitamin C per day. It is found in numerous tasty foods, making it that much easier to eat something good for not only your body, but your skin as well.

In order to keep it short and sweet, the following are just a few of the foods that are high in Vitamin C, and can also be added into recipes to make delicious and healthy meals:

Kale: Just one cup of kale contains 134% of the Vitamin C you need daily. This dark, leafy green is perfect to add to your salads.

Berries: Blackberries, blueberries and strawberries are all packed with Vitamin C, with strawberries containing the most. There is 17% of the daily Vitamin C you need in just one strawberry, therefore you only need six to get enough for the day!

Kiwis: Kiwis contain 64 mg of Vitamin C per fruit, meaning just one kiwi will get you the daily recommended amount of the important micronutrient.

Bell Peppers: Colored bell peppers contain 183 mg of Vitamin C per 100 grams of peppers. This is more the 3 times the amount that is recommended per day.

Citrus Fruits: Grapefruits and oranges contain the same amount of Vitamin C, while lemons and clementines deliver a lower amount (roughly 60-75% of the recommended value).

Broccoli: Broccoli is packed with antioxidants AND Vitamin C. One cup of chopped and steamed broccoli contains 135% of your recommended daily dose of Vitamin C.

Makeup Tips & Tricks for Oily Skin

It is no secret that applying makeup to oily skin isn’t an easy task. Unfortunately for many, their makeup doesn’t last as long, as well as it leaving an unflattering oily shine throughout the day. There are many factors to consider, as finding the right makeup for your skin type is only half of the solution. By also making sure you’re keeping your skin clean, moisturized and healthy, the makeup will last longer and help control the unwanted shine that seems to come along with makeup on oily skin types.

Don’t touch up with more foundation.

Throughout the day, you may have the urge to touchup your makeup with a pressed powder or foundation. By layering more makeup onto your oily skin, it often leads to a ‘cakey’ appearance. Instead, try an oil-absorbing powder, such as the Ultimatte Finish Powder  to soak up excess oil and leave your skin with a smooth and even toned finish.

Even oily skin needs moisture.

By moisturizing and conditioning your skin, it allows for an even makeup application, which can make it look more natural. Although all skin types need daily hydration, it’s important that those with oily skin use a lightweight moisturizer, such as Ultra Lite Oil Free Moisturizer. This will ensure a balance of your skin’s natural moisture content, without weighing it down and making it oily.

Cue the primer.

Primer has a big impact on the wear of makeup. Pore Perfecting Face Primer is an oil-free primer that also helps smooth the skin’s texture and reduces the look of pores and lines instantly. It also contains Dermat Complex, which helps with shine control, as well as Salicylic Acid to eliminate pore blockage.

Primer…for eye shadow?

Prepping your eyelids is essential for oily lids. Botanical Shadow Primer provides the perfect canvas for smooth, long-lasting eyeshadow. It also helps create a crease-free an smudge-proof look. Eyeshadow pigment will appear truer in color as well, as the primer neutralizes discoloration of the eyelid.

Pressed Powder Foundations

Using a liquid or powder-based foundation that provides either a satin or matte finish is best for oily skin. Our Pressed Powder Foundation has light-refracting qualities that diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while allowing your skin to breathe. It will give you a natural, even finish that will last all day!

5 Tips for Smooth Skin

Over time, many factors are to blame for the loss of your skin’s smoothness, such as stress, rays from the sun, pollution, dehydration, or even just aging. Not only can these factors affect the smoothness of your skin, but it also makes it more susceptible to wrinkles, age spots, bruises, rough or dry patches, blemishes and a loss of elasticity. Although it is an impossible task for us to regain the baby-soft skin from our childhood, there are still ways to get smoother and healthier skin as an adult.

1.  Start from within

Antioxidants are crucial to combat loss of collagen, premature aging and other health concerns. Adding berries and subtracting sugary treats will aid in improving the visible signs of aging, and help to reveal a more youthful appearance. Omega-3 fatty acids are also essential for smooth and radiant skin.

2. Practice a healthy lifestyle

Regular physical activity helps regulate the hormones that are significant in your skin, prevents free-radical damage, while also reducing inflammation. Other than exercise, it is important to get seven to eight hours of uninterrupted sleep every night. This rejuvenates not only your body, but your skin as well.

3. Stick to a cleansing routine

Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize. Remove makeup with a gentle cleanser, followed by a toner to remove any dirt, oil, cleanser or makeup left behind, and then moisturize. You only need to exfoliate your skin once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells and increase collagen production. It is important to also note that over-washing can cause excess oil production, which can lead to breakouts.

4. Hydrate your skin

Using creams and serums with antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and E help nourish your skin, leaving it healthier looking and smooth.

5. Take your vitamins

While the vitamins in your skincare products are important, it is also essential that you are putting vitamins and minerals into your body as well. Vitamins A, C, D and E work from the inside to clear and nourish the skin, while protecting it from a wide variety of skin issues. H&H Science’s Anti-Aging Formula is formulated to help maintain a youthful and healthier appearance, as well as providing other anti-aging benefits.
