Healthy skincare new year's resolutions

2019 New Year’s Resolution: Skincare Edition

It’s been said that over 40% of Americans make New Year’s Resolutions, but only 8% actually keep them! Let’s make 2019 the year you make them and actually KEEP them, but it’s all about choosing resolutions that are right for YOU and right for your skin. They need to be very specific and not just “I want to be healthier in 2019.” Nail down that nightly skincare routine. Start wearing SPF – every day. Just to name a few!

We have our top 5 Resolutions we believe that will make a difference in your skin in 2019 (and they’re simple!):

Drink 8 glasses of water a day.

There are even water bottles that have a schedule on them to remind you to drink from your water bottle! Keep this resolution and watch your skin change from the inside out. Drinking water to keep you skin hydrated is better than any topical on the planet!

Wash your face!

Every morning and every night. Healthy skin always starts with CLEAN skin. When you fall asleep with a face full of makeup, you’re putting your skin at all sorts of risks – clogged pores, blemishes, and aging. All it takes is a couple of minutes before your head hits the pillow! Which reminds us – you should be sleeping on copper.

Mask 1x a week.

Even schedule it – pick a day of the week and stick to it. Think of it as a treat – no, more than that! It’s self-care. Take 30 minutes of your week to hit pause and replenish and hydrate your skin. Yes, of course, you can multitask, but sometimes you just need a break. Apply your face mask, sip on Spearmint Tea, and get to that book or magazine article you’ve been meaning to read. Doesn’t sound like too difficult a resolution to keep, does it? 😉

Stop picking at your face!

We know, this one can be difficult. Everyone, and we mean everyone, has succumbed to the temptation of popping a blemish, but it actually is doing more harm than good. You could end up damaging your skin and you’re more likely to see acne scars as a result. Instead, opt for a spot treatment like this one and blue light it! Safe, effective, and by far the best way to clear your blemishes to reveal flawless skin in 2019.

Throw your razors away – for good.

Think of all the time, energy, and pain you could save by not having to shave or wax! Our Hair Removal Laser 4X Deluxe Kit is powered by the same in-office Laser Technology used by dermatologists to remove unwanted hair at a fraction of the typical laser treatment cost. Start seeing results in as little as 2 weeks and reveal glowing, hair-free skin by summer!

Tria SmoothBeauty Laser

SmoothBeauty Laser Media Buzz on The Marilyn Denis Show

Noted plastic surgeon, Dr. Sean Rice, discusses various ways to stay healthy and look great throughout the holiday season and highlights the Tria SmoothBeauty Laser as a wonderful at-home wrinkle fighting device. Dr. Rice invites Danika, a current customer, to talk about the results she has seen while using the device.

Here is video transcript of The Marilyn Denis Show

Marilyn: OK, we are really taking care of you today. Here we will have advice on how you can have fabulous looking skin for the holidays, please welcome Dr. Sean Rice Syria. Here he is. Nice to see you Syria.

Dr. Sean: Same here. Nice to see you.

Marilyn: So we got a new at-home anti-aging technology. You want to talk to us about that?

Dr. Sean: Great, so there is a new laser technology that you can use at home called the Tria skin rejuvenating system and it’s very similar to the kind of lasers that we use in the office. So if you come to my office, we have some very expensive lasers that can re-surface your skin.

Marilyn: OK

Dr. Sean: And what we are doing is, one of the lasers we have is called the fractionated laser. So it shoots little tiny beams of energy. We use carbon dioxide and that goes down under the skin and it causes the skin to regenerate. So what the Tria does now, is that Tria does that with light energy, so you are shooting these little balls of light down into the skin. That causes the skin to disrupt and it causes it to regrow and as it regrows the collagen the collagen thickens itself and you start to notice that the little fine lines start to disappear. And it really helps with the texturing of the skin as well. The other thing that it does is that the little brown pigment deep down into the skin.

Marilyn: Yes.

Dr. Sean: and if you can regenerate the collagen, that pigment will come to the surface. So things like the Tria will really help to bring that pigment up to the surface.

Marilyn: Do you use this over the entire face?

Dr. Sean: You can use it over the entire face, you just want to avoid going directly over the eye.

Marilyn: OK, so don’t like, does it come with little goggles or something?

Marilyn: No, but you know, the interesting thing with the Tria is, on the side of the Tria, there is a little purple light, and the purple light is a contact thing, so if the contact comes off your skin, the Laser will automatically shuts itself off, so you don’t have to worry, a very good safety issue. You don’t have to worry about coming in contact with your eye.

Marilyn: And when we are talking, when we say face, we are saying this to down here, are we not? That’s the face to me.

Dr. Sean: Well, ya, I would say, not necessarily

Marilyn: Down to here, down to here, down to here.

Dr. Sean: Well, it can be in a few years. But ah, you want to keep it basically from the bottom of the neck up.

Marilyn: OK, and the cost. I know Danika is in the audience and we are going to talk to her in a second. But how much is the cost of something like this?

Dr. Sean: Well, the cost to this is definitely less than it is coming to the office, having as you know, ah, continual laser treatment stuff.

Marilyn: Right, so, it’s what? 4 something, or?

Dr. Sean: Ya I think it’s $495

Marilyn: OK, Danika, Hi, Gorgeous skin.

Danika: Thank you

Marilyn: So you have been using this product for a while

Danika: Ya, about 6 months. It’s amazing

Marilyn: And so you, well, let’s take a really good look at Danika. So what did you notice the diff, how did you, when did you first notice the difference in your skin? There you are. There is your before shot. Tell me, you know, did you do it every night? Every morning? What did you do?

Danika: I did it every night and within about 2 weeks, I already start to notice the difference. It looked like my skin was filling out from the inside.

Marilyn: OK

Danika: swelling up, the creases started to go away, they went from being down to here to minimally. I’d say, I am 38 now, I’d say I am back down to how I looked wrinkle-wise when I was 28. So it’s fantastic.

Marilyn: Wow, wow, that’s good, that’s great. You did all the no sunscreen and drinking lots of water to go along with that too, with an occasional glass of wine.

Danika: Ya

Marilyn: Anything else you want to say about this?

Dr. Sean: Well, you know, it’s a great system. It takes about 4-6 weeks before you start to see the results. You need to do it about 8 weeks on and about 4 weeks off.

Marilyn: OK, very good. Great information. We always like to hear about new products. Thank you so much. Nice to see you again. For more information, visit our web-site Thanks Danika. We’ll have to take a break and be right back.

Happy National Sunscreen Day!

The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention has officially declared the Friday before Memorial Day weekend, “National Sunscreen Day.” Although there are a million and one reasons to celebrate the sun, on Friday we spread awareness about its potential danger and we get smart about managing the sun.

So let’s talk about sun damage for a bit and then go into how we can take preventative measures. As beauty lovers, we are obsessed about the health and vitality of our skin. Sun damage is one of the main causes of premature aging. It can actually compound the aging process. Ultraviolet light from the sun penetrates all the layers of skin, including the layers that actively work to produce collagen to fortify your skin. This leads to decreased elasticity, sagginess and wrinkles (gasp!) Also, that bright red lobster look that you can get from a fresh sunburn has never been flattering. And what about the hyperpigmentation or potentially dangerous moles that often make an unwelcome appearance after frequent sun exposure? No thank you.

The most unfortunate potential consequence of sun overexposure is skin cancer. In the U.S. alone, there are 5.4 million cases reported per year. There are more skin cancer cases than breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, and colon cancer combined!

Still not convinced? Do you need a visual? Dr. Sandra Lee (a.k.a.) Dr. Pimplepopper shared this man’s photo on Instagram:

She engagingly asked her fans if they could guess his occupation, the obvious answer being a truck driver. The photo shows the drastic difference in skin texture between the frequently sunned left side of his face and the shaded right side.

But on a more positive note, let’s talk about what you CAN do to stay safe in the sun.

Avoid the Sun!

When possible, you can protect yourself from the sun by avoiding it all together. Try to stay covered indoors between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. when the sun’s rays are the strongest.

Gear Up!

When you must go outside, wear a hat and sunglasses. Skin-protective clothing act as an extra barrier from those harmful rays. Cover up your arms with long sleeves and wear long pants. This is especially important when you anticipate being outside for an extended period of time.

Slather on that SPF!

For those times you want to go outside and show some skin, be sure to protect it with sunscreen. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher that specifically says “broad-spectrum” on the label (which means it protects against UVA and UVB rays). Also make sure that your sunscreen is water resistant. It’s best to wear sunscreen every day, all year long. Harmful rays don’t go away just because it’s cloudy and gray outside. It’s ideal to apply sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before going outside. Remember that photo that Dr. Lee shared? Apply sunscreen even if you’ll be in the car driving all day. Reapply your sunscreen every two hours while the sun is out to keep that SPF factor fresh and actively working to protect your precious skin.

And of course don’t forget to stay hydrated! Drink lots of water!

What’s Age Defying Laser Technology

For women who want to remove wrinkles and get back to the smooth skin of their youth, Age-Defying Laser Technology can be an answer. Read More
