A Client's Question: So I’m noticing how my face is responding to the different products and the glycolic and retinol and peptide and seaweed are great. I have sun spots on my forehead and cheeks - almost to a hormonal level which is odd. It hasn’t been this bad since pregnancy. I haven’t had a period in two years so I’m shocked!
I don’t know if what I have in my cart is too much of the same thing. And I have questions about the light therapy machine. I’ve been using bix beauty Korean masks which I really like three times a week and started having my capillaries lasered at a spa I found in CT. I also was so pleased with the under eye hydro patches and silicon neck and chest patches - I just can’t seem to make them stick for more than two or three nights and that’s not enough ROI. My chest is aging and I’ve started pulling down my products to it (I always have done my neck).
But advice and guidance would be much appreciated - thank you for all you do - if I worked in the industry I’d offer to buy your company I’m such a fan of the products! Elizabeth's Response: The problem with sunspots is that damage that may have happened decades ago may now be just showing up on you face due to the drop in estrogen which suppressed these sunspots. You might want to up your SPF to Brightening Protection SPF 50 The biggest problem with sunscreens it that people don’t apply enough product. You should apply peanut size amount in the morning and let it dry, then apply another peanut size amount. This is the only way you will get a true reflection of the SPF number written on the bottle. Another problem is heat. Heat + hormone changes = pigmentation. Heat encourages pigmentation hidden beneath the cell to rise to the top, presenting itself as new pigmentation spots. That is why, sometimes when you are outside but protected you still can get pigmentation spots. Keep your skin cool. Carry a hydrating toner with you and spray your face every once in a while. To lighten sunspots quicker you may want to try Power Boost which is a lactic acid based AHA peel. Lactic is very good for brightening the skin. Do not use it the same nights as Level Up or Glycolic. Level Up is great for your neck. Power Boost may be too strong for the neck so two nights a week you should try our regular Boost . After using one of these acids and it had time to sink in, you should really try Crepe Escape neck cream. We’ve had so much positive feedback for this neck product. For your eyes you should consider Regenerize - Longevity Eye Serum . This formula is very current and it is one of our most popular products. The fact that this serum like eye cream is very light means it will not weight down the delicate area around your eyes which can lead to puffiness or wrinkles. You can even smooth some over your eyelids. Thanks so much for the compliments about our product line. It’s working really well doing business from home. After 42 years as an esthetician it works out perfectly for my current lifestyle.
