Dry Weather + Dehydration + Your Skin

November 30, 2011

Shayna is one our fantastic Estheticians at the Hill Country Galleria milk + honey spa. She has been working in the field of esthetics for more than four years and truly loves skincare!

Dry Weather, Dehydration, Allergy Season, Hyaluronic … and You!

Cooler, drier weather is upon us! While the cooler weather is fantastic, the added dryness will bring out different issues for our skin such as increased dryness and a lot of times severe dehydration. Dehydration is sneaky because it is not so easily spotted like dry or oily skin. One can still be oily and extremely dehydrated, especially if using products that can be drying like acne products. Another huge factor this time of year (or year round possibly) is allergies, and we are heading directly towards cedar fever! All those great allergy medications that allow us to breathe and to function while coping with allergies severely dry out the body.

It can be very easy for the skin to become out of balance and dehydrated with so many possible factors this time of year. Signs that you are dehydrated include skin that feels tight or is easily irritated, flaking, and developing fine lines.

In light of all these possibilities for skin and body dehydration, I highly recommend using a hyaluronic serum topically for the skin. Also, absolutely increase your water intake as much as possible to help the body cope with the drier weather. This is especially true if you have to take some allergy medications. You cannot drink enough water after taking those guys!

Inventive’s Anti-Aging Hyaluronic Serum is fantastic for dehydration! Hyaluronic serum holds up to 1000 times its weight in water and the body makes it naturally, so it is very compatible with our skin and absorbs quickly for immediate relief. Hyaluronic acid is able to penetrate deeply into the skin and it helps to smooth and plump fine lines from the inside while supporting the skin’s collagen production, making it very effective for dehydration and anti-aging as well. It is also non-comedogenic so it will not make your skin breakout. That makes this product great for everyone, including those prone to breakouts! Hyaluronic serum is great for post-peel as well since it speeds healing by supporting the skin with hydration.

Spots Have Their Place, But Not On Your Face!

October 3, 2011

Katina is one of our fantastic Estheticians at our downtown milk + honey spa. She has been working as an Esthetician and natural Nail Therapist for more than 15 years. She explains how to help prevent those spots on your skin.


If you start to notice spots appearing on your skin, don’t panic. At least not right away. When patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin color, as in the case of age spots or “liver spots,” it is because of a common, usually harmless condition known a hyper-pigmentation.

Hyperpigmentation is the effect of an increase in the melanin, the substance in the body that is responsible for color. Melanin absorbs the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays in order to protect the skin from overexposure, but in doing so, it can cause:

  • •Freckles
  • •Age Spots
  • •Other darkened skin patches

One common form of hyperpigmentation are age spots, which occur in people over the age of 40, because at that age people have a diminished supply of melanin and cannot fight off the UV rays as well as they used to.

Because hyperpigmentation occurs due to sun damage, it is usually referred to by doctors as solar lentigo, which is benign, but an indication of excessive exposure to the sun.

Another affect of hyperpigmentation appearing because of exposure to the sun, is that it usually occurs on the areas of the skin that are in view of the sun most frequently, such as the hands and face. Unfortunately, these areas of the body that are most often in view of others.

Avoid skin hyperpigmentation by applying a topical skin care product. A milk + honey spa favorite is from our Lightning Serum from our Cosmedix line, available at our milk + honey spas. Not only does this powerful brightening and lightening agent effectively reduce the appearance of age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation, but chirally correct lightening also prevents future melanin formations, which help maintain a youthful appearance. The Cosmedix Lightning Serum is infused with licorice, mulberry and green tea extract. The licorice and mulberry combine to lighten and brighten your complexion, and green tea extract prevents inflammation.

Always remember, spots have their place, but not on your face!
