There is something magical about Skincare Educational Seminars. I have always loved them. This was my first time attending an iS Clinical Seminar, and it didn't disappoint!
The morning started off with a lovely spread for breakfast before we got into the nitty gritty of antiaging ingredients and medical grade botanicals.
The first speaker was Molly Haggerty, National Director of Sales, and what a wonderful and positively radiant woman! She made sure to put us all in a "positive place" with mindful exercises. She introduced the iS Clinical staff and speakers for the day and gave a in depth background on how iS Clinical was conceived and their dedication to skin health.
Next was Dr. Dehaven who is, well, a genius. She went over all of the benefits of antioxidants for the skin. Including, why antioxidants in your food just aren't enough. Did you know, only about 1% of antioxidants taken orally actually make it to the anatomic structure of the skin? WOW!
iS Clinical realized nature is efficient. Which was like an epiphany. Why is it that plants in the harshest conditions, are healthy and flourishing? Did you know Olive Trees in the Holy Land have been alive for 1,000's of years and are healthy without disease? you know why? Antioxidants. They have harnessed the power to keep themselves healthy in harsh conditions by creating their own antioxidants.
Some of the antioxidants iS Clinical has extracted and have put into their powerful serums include:
Centella Asiatica- Centella Asiatica is rich in amino acids, beta carotene, fatty acids, and phytochemicals. This super blend of nutrients offers fantastic benefits for the skin, including powerful anti-aging properties. It is beneficial in the management of eczema, psoriasis, veins and stretch marks. For acne sufferers, it speeds healing, helping to prevent scarring and prevent future blemishes.
Olive Leaf Extract- have several different antioxidants, all of which help protect from environmental stressors. Olive oil also has vitamin A and E. Olive leaves contain several beneficial flavonoids, including quercetin, rutin, and kaempferol.
SOD-The role of SOD is to eliminate free radicals resulting from lipid peroxidation and to prevent the chain reactions that would eventually allow them to reach deeply into the skin.
The BEST thing about antioxidants, is that its been researched and proven that its never to late to start using them and see amazing results.
Remember Antioxidants= Anti-inflammatory. They are great for everyone, and all skin types.
After education and lunch we then got to hear Dr. Tahl N. Humes speak. If you don't know who she is, she owns and serves as medical director to Vitahl Medical Aesthetics in Denver and Chicago, non-invasive aesthetic practices. I have actually been following them awhile on social media to it was such a delight for me to have the opportunity to be in the same room as her. Wildly smart and dynamic she explained aging thru the years. Ill go into more detail on this in a later blog! If you ever have the chance to be treated by Dr. Humes or her team, they are all so very talented with lasers and injectables.
I had so much fun at iS Clinical Education Seminar. This line is for results driven customers. I am a HUGE fan and I am loving the results from the iS Clinical products I am using. I promise, if you haven't already incorporated iS Clinical into your skincare regimen, its a must.
I have a tan line... but it's not what you think.
When a tan line lasts a year... it’s now called sun damage.
Last July, my husband and I went on a mini vacation, had the time of our lives. May have had a few drinks and fell asleep at 2pm, outside, with no SPF.
(I know, I know)
A year later, with no sun (seriously) you can still see where my swimsuit was, perfectly. Now the fragile skin of my chest and décolleté is red and blotchy and the texture is rough and bumpy.
Over the next 8 weeks I will be treating my sun damage and sharing my results with you!
The products I will using on my chest and décolleté are:
Osmosis Purify Gentle Cleanser
Neova DNA Total Repair
Osmosis Hydralift Mask
Neova Glycolic 20% (2-3x per week)
I will update all of you on my progress every 2 weeks.
In the meantime, let me explain why I chose these products above
Osmosis Purify Gentle Cleanser is perfect for photo damaged skin. Purify contains bromelain, an enzymatic active ingredient derived from pineapple. This special ingredient serves as a natural exfoliate to gently lift impurities from the skin and smooth frayed, damaged edges without stripping the skin's protective lipid barrier.
Neova DNA Total Repair- to be transparent, I really wanted to see what this product can do. I already know I could use MAD Skincare Fade Gel 5 with 2% Hydroquinone and get amazing results but, I have never used Total DNA Repair before and with their clinical studies showing 96% decrease in UV spot size, area and intensity in 8 weeks or less. I am so excited to use this, so you guys can see how amazing this product is!
Neova Reveal Exfoliator Glycolic 20%- glycolic is a strong acid, but Neova has formulated their product to be gentle for even the most sensitive of skin. This is important when searching for products for the chest and décolleté since the skin on your here is much thinner and has less blood flow. Reveal exfoliator Refines skin texture and clarity and will help remove the dead skin cells and pigment.
Osmosis Hydralift Mask is a hydrating and firming mask that promotes soothing and tightening benefits for all skin types. Powerful ingredients add hydration to the skin that aid in plumping and firming. Soothing and calming Cucumber extract provides a cooling and healing effect to most irritated skins while Aloe Vera helps to speed up cell renewal by up to 8 times and quickly penetrates the epidermis for intense, immediate hydration. If you don't currently hydrate your décolleté, you should start, it is so important to keep your décolleté youthful. This mask can also be applied thinly and left on overnight, which is how I will be using it.
I am so excited to share my results, so you can see what Medical Grade Skincare can do for you!
Let me know if you have ANY questions!
