Change in season change in skin care routine

Monday, September 28th, 2015

The fall is here and with the change of the season comes the change in routine to keep up with a healthy complexion. The slow and progressive sun exposure during the summer can be almost irreversible, it is time to:
Exfoliate– cell renewal is necessary to shed the skin damage from sun exposure while unclogging pores. Heat dilates the pores making them more exposed to hold dirt. During the summer deep exfoliation is a bad idea, according to the FDA Sunburn alert: products that contain Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) may increase skin sensitivity to sunburn. The skin cell renewal process slows down with age. Increase the skin’s natural exfoliation process with a product containing alpha hydroxide acids once or twice a week We suggest the Renewal Gel

Antioxidant– let’s repair the damage from over exposure to the sun, these harmful effects can be reduced and neutralized by applying topical vitamin C. The body limits the amount of ingested vitamin C. Applying a topical antioxidant directly into the skin is essential. We suggest the Cellution C
Sunscreen– I always believe that is the best anti-aging product to protect and preserve your skin is sunscreen. Prevent further damage and pigmentation. Help to slow down the signs of premature aging. We suggest ColorShade available in 4 different tints to match any skin tone.

HONEST.com sun protection is not measuring up

Thursday, August 6th, 2015

The media blew up this week about the website HONEST.com by celebrity Jessica Alba. The outrage was due to her sun protection products not providing adequate protection and allowing the skin to get sun damage/burn. Her customers posted on social media their sunburn before and after photos and some looked painful.

Sunscreen is a drug, an over the counter drug, which means is a product that can change how a living organism works. In this case, help to prevent a disease, skin cancer. The new craze of natural, organic, gluten free ingredients makes it very difficult to formulate a sunscreen that meets all the FDA standards and consumers desires. Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide (UVA and UVB blockers) cannot alone stop the solar rays from entering in our organs, the formula needs other ingredients to help to block and stay on top of the skin to make it work. That is why you don’t want to wear a chemical sunscreen they are more harmful since they absorbed through your skin. Chemicals ingredients like; Avobenzone, Oxybenzone, Benzophenone, etc. You need to reapply every time you towel dry, sweat.
A good sunscreen does not need to have a high % of active ingredients, just the opposite the higher the % of active ingredients the more irritating can be.

Be sure when you are shopping for sunscreen you look for:
• Active ingredients without , Avobenzone ,Benzofenone, Parsol 1789, HelioPlex, Oxybenzone
• Is Broad spectrum UVA/UVB and a SPF of 30 or higher
• Water resistant for 80 minutes
• And do not buy a product because a celebrity says you need to buy it

UVA-UVB diagram with abella skin care logo

The misleading advice that your makeup has enough SPF to protect your skin needs to be addressed. According to the FDA a sun protection product is required to have a SPF of 30 or higher. Only broad spectrum products give you complete protection for UVA and UVB rays. You are wasting time and money on anti-wrinkle and fading creams if you are not applying daily sun protection. We suggest blending your makeup with sunscreen or apply our ColorShade SPF 35 for the perfect blend of color and protection.  #abellaskincare #sunprotection #spf #fda #mua
