S71: Sun Damage Repair

Listener question:

Hello, I’ve been enjoying your podcast and have a question for you. My chest had some color, like a sunburn but it’s been there for about a year.  I’m sure it’s Sun damage. Is there anything I can do to help heal that area return to my normal pigment? What sunscreens do you recommend?

Thank you So much!

Skincare coach cieloscent response: Listener keep us posted on your progress! Success to you!  47.15 MIN podcast.

Sunscreen/Sun Protection: There is no doubt that sun damage is the quickest way to age the skin.  Sun protection is key-no secret there but it’s important to apply to ALL areas of exposed skin and to reapply as directed. The chest is one of the areas many forget to either apply or reapply sunscreen.  Let’s talk sunscreen first: It is absolutely vital that you choose a sunscreen that states:

Broad spectrum or full spectrum  -this will  protect you from both UVA & UVB rays.  Sun protection Factor- SPF 30+ and the secret is to be generous in applying and re apply.  Make sure you have a great summer hat and sunglasses to further protect from the sun’s harmful rays. Consider adding a UV blocker umbrella if you need to walk in the peak sun hours.

Mineral Based Sunscreen recommendations: Look for either key words:  Titanium Dioxide and Zinc oxide-Active Ingredients

-Non-nano Badger sunscreen.  There are many in their selection-scented and unscented sunscreen products.  They even have one that repels bugs too.  This is a family owned company.   You can find this product at wholefoods or online such as amazon. prices vary $ 15+

Skin discoloration due to Sun Damage.  Skin Damage Bio 101 (the short version)

-UV rays actually jump start melanocytes.  Melanocytes are cells that contain melanin which is a type of pigment that bring color to parts of your body.  Hyperpigmentation from sun damage is a result of the over activity of melanin production. All this takes place in the lower layer of the epidermis. The tan you on your skin is the melanin protecting you from the over exposure of the UV rays.

Remedies: Least invasive

Kitchen cupboard skincare: Use at night –Ingredients needed: Exfoliate!

1.   Vitamin C (L-ascorbic)- a powerhouse however like vitamin E is unstable but work very well together.    Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate less irritating and more stable .

2.   Aloe Vera ( a healer) My favorite for repairing. Can be drying so make sure that you apply coconut oil, jojoba oil or your favorite moisturizer.

3.   (Vitamin E)- prevents free radical damage to skin from UV rays.  Applying Vitamin E actually penetrates the epidermis and dermis.

4.   Glycerin:  Yummy soft skin! 1-2 drops of glycerin  ( use a tiny funnel from Sally’s to transfer product into your bottle)

5.   Place your product in the fridge.  Add more aloe Vera gel if you want product to have a thicker consistency.

The “how to” make this recipe on Podcast.

2. On Amazon. You can use this product day and evening.  Great Reviews on amazon and I am really loving this right now.

3/.  Medical Practitioner intervention: More aggressive approaches: V-BEAM (Vascular Laser)  for redness, Chemical Peels, Retin-A, Retinol, laser-& other alternatives. Choose to do treatments in the winter.These treatments are generally sensitive to the sunlight. Consider visiting your skincare therapist to help you with mild/moderate Hyperpigmentation.

The above product is not dispensed in certain states.  This is Hydroquinone therapy. Check for availability in your state.  There are strict precautions associated with this product.  Make sure the medical practitioner is a board certified Aesthetic Physician.

S65: Thinking Botox?

Check in with us every Sunday for a new topic of conversation on our show! Welcome!

What’s Botox?  A drug made from a neurotoxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and its name -botulinum toxin. So what’s all this stuff mean?

Let’s put this together to make all this crystal clear. Botox is used for a variety of conditions such as those who suffer from migraine headaches, muscular conditions and to remove wrinkles.

How does BOTOX remove wrinkles?

By paralyzing the muscles-temporarily- This effect lasts anywhere from four to six months.  Once Acetylcholine production returns to normal functioning your wrinkles will return. BOTOX blocks the acetylcholine receptors on the site being cosmetically treated. The acetylcholine cannot signal the muscle being treated to contract so it can not attach itself anywhere on the muscle. Once BOTOX has been introduced to the site the acetylcholine block is NOT reversible and begins working within 48 hours.  You don’t look so terrific after the BOTOX injection but you will begin to notice a significant difference within a week.  Remember this is only temporary.

The Scoop about BOTOX in a nutshell:

1.  Botox is injected to the muscle that causes the wrinkle.

2.  Paralysis of the muscle to prevent wrinkles.

3. The wrinkles most impacted by the administration of BOTOX are those where the muscles need contract or dynamic wrinkles.

4.  Results are TEMPORARY

How do I prepare for BOTOX injections:

1.  Understand what will be done to you. Educate yourself.  Ask Questions!
Be well & Happy

S63: Do you use petroleum on your skin?

Hi everyone and welcome! This is skincare coach cieloscent with  another tip on how to protect your skin during the winter months.  Many of us at one time or another have used petroleum products such as Vaseline. Today we will learn about UN-petroleum by Alba.  One of my favorite products to have because it comes in handy in so many ways.

What’s petroleum Jelly?

In a nut shell it’s the by product of oil production. Specifically the remnants of crude oil when in the making of gasoline. What are my concerns apart from the possible carcinogenic factors which weigh heavy on my mind regarding petroleum and not to mention the environmental reasons:

1.  Clogs your pores! Eventually. Petroleum jelly is very difficult to remove because it is a water repellent and as a result it just sits on your face.  As you know, this is an invitation for bacteria which will initiate a cycle of breakouts and other skin problems.

2.  Many people love petroleum because of it’s ability to seal moisture but what you are really doing is blocking the elimination of toxins.

3. It interferes with your cell turnover and this effects your collagen and elastin which helps your skin from aging faster than it should.

4.  Here is the biggie concern for me:  Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons or PHA’s they have been linked to cancer.  The carcinogenic culprits however are removed in the refining process therefore creating petroleum that is deemed safe to use.  The FDA recognizes petrolatum as a skin protectant because it is not absorbed by the skin.

Why do I use Alba UN-petroleum?   

1.  Simple and safe ingredients.  (Castor oil, Coconut oil, Beeswax, Vitamin E, )

2.  I use  it all over my body especially in the winter months! My feet love this product all year round.

3.  During the winter I place a very small amount of UN-petroleum around my eye area.

4. Reasonably priced: anywhere from $4.00-9.99.

ThisMulti-Purpose Jelly is a fantastic alternative to petroleum should you decide to go this route. Thank you for joining me your- skincare coach -here at skincare talk radio! 

Be well & Happy

S61: Face Yoga-A Natural Facelift. Really?

Just a quick peek of our latest show conversation.

Hi Everyone! It takes more muscles to frown than to smile.  It’s really hard to say the exact amount used to smile or frown but we do know that we have 43 of them-muscles -that is- in our face. These muscles are controlled by our facial nerve (seventh cranial nerve) and they need exercise.  The most tension is found in the jaw, forehead and the brow area.  Face yoga is beneficial for smoothing out lines and wrinkles and it is quite relaxing because it releases tension.

Face Yoga Benefits:

1.  Stimulates  collagen production.

2.  Builds muscle and flexibility

3.  Slows down the aging process

4.  Improves circulation

5.  Reduces Tension

6.  Tones your neck

I just love the idea of face yoga and I am making it my skincare intention to learn and practice face yoga.It feels so good and is definitely not difficult.  Hope this helps and take a look at the video so that it can further inspire you.

Thanks for joining me today. Be well & happy! Till we meet again-bye for now!
