My own fertility journey began in 2020 with two pregnancy losses, and the realization I needed to see a reproductive specialist. Endless injections and a year and a half later, I had Alexandra with the help of IVF.
As an aesthetician, I see a multitude of different clients with varying skin types, but my rosacea clients get the gentlest treatment. This skin condition can manifest in different forms and be different from one client to the other. According to the National Rosacea Society, over 16 million Americans are affected by the skin disorder, and as many as 415 million worldwide according to new research in the British Journal of Dermatology.
Many women tend to over-exfoliate the skin, in hopes of sloughing off dead skin, and thus achieving a fresh and renewed complexion. This is a misconception, since our skin is a very efficient organ, and doesn’t require exfoliation more than 2-3 times per week.
The face, neck and décolleté are exposed to the sun, wind and cold weather, and must be all cared for in the same way as the face during the professional treatment and at home. The delicate neck and décolleté area is often ignored when it comes to application of moisturizers and sunscreen, and is easily susceptible to dehydration and sun damage.
Hyperpigmentation disorders present as skin that is discolored, blotchy, darker, or lighter than normal – this happens when the body produces too little or too much melanin. These disorders can be localized or can diffusely spread about the entire body.
