It’s time once again to open up the skin care mail bag and take a closer look at some of the great questions my team of skin care professionals and I have received recently from the SkinReading blog, our Bioelements Facebook and Twitter pages, the skin care professionals we teach from coast-to-coast, and even people who stop me on the street! You’ve got questions… we’ve got answers:
A: What is the best Bioelements facial for very oily skin?
Q: If your skin is Oily to Very Oily, then the Bioelements Custom Blend Facial is ideal. Your skin care professional will customize it in the treatment room with drops of our exclusive Custom Blend Additives – lab-strength ingredients, botanicals and aromatherapist oils that will zero in on excess oil, breakouts and visible pores. The facial includes Bioelements Cleansing Massage (see a demo of the facial in the video below), Exfoliation, Custom Blend Massage, Power treatment and Power Mask. After just one facial, your skin will feel incredibly clean, smooth and noticeably less oily. Find a Bioelements Spa near you where a skin care professional can create your Custom Blend Facial here.
Q: How we can treat sensitive or sensitized skin for aging…. lines and wrinkles to be more specific.
A: This is a great question. Bioelements Sensitive Skin Cleanser, Calmitude Hydrating Solution, Calmitude Sensitive Skin Moisturizer, and Stress Solution products do more than address issues with redness and sensitivity. Whenever you use products like these that gently cleanse, tone, hydrate and soothe the skin, you are helping it to perform at its best. These products work together to soften fine lines, keep the skin hydrated and plump – while balancing the skin’s protective barrier. The result? Lines and wrinkles will naturally be less visible, and skin will be softer, smoother and more vibrant. The ingredients we use ‘feed’ the skin and protect it – we are helping the skin help itself, which will make it stronger – that’s the true definition of ‘anti-aging’.
A: Unless you have a very Sensitive Skin type, it’s great to use Quick Refiner under your Sleepwear. You could start by applying Quick Refiner every other night for the first week, and then if your skin shows no sign of sensitivity, you should be fine to use it every night. But make sure to use a broad spectrum SPF every day!
