Why we love Retinol!!!

Retinol is a form of vitamin A that can be derived from several enzymatic processes. Vitamin A has been used in various forms in skin care for a very long time, but when it is changed into the form of Retinol it has been found to be the most beneficial. This is because Retinol is the most reactive form of vitamin A available that is still 100% safe to apply to your skin. You can even find naturally occurring Retinol in beta carotene.
Retinol has a particularly small molecular structure giving it the ability to penetrate skin easily and produce noticeable results more effectively. In order to stay taut and wrinkle-free, your skin’s molecular structure must be constantly repaired to combat the negative effects of the various pollutants that you come into contact with every day. Retinol greatly assists the functions in your skin that repair its structure by invigorating the reproduction of cells at the stratum germinativum, which provides the rigidity of the epidermal layer. As Retinol is stimulating the production of these cells, it is also simultaneously stimulating the production of collagen, one of the building blocks of your skin. As if these two functions weren’t enough to convince anyone of the power of Retinol, it is also an antioxidant, fighting against the debilitating effects of any free radicals.
Find out for yourself how effective the proven science behind retinol can be by trying any of the various retinol-based products offered by Lira Clinical! Try the Pro C4 Retinol Serum with PSC or the Pro Retinol Crème for both anti-aging and acne related skin problems and start to experience the amazing benefits of modern skin care technology!

How the Environment Affects Our Skin

Did you know that skin is the largest organ of the body? It is a physical barrier to protect us from the outside world. Every single day the skin provides us with many unique features and functions that keep us safe and healthy. Many times we don’t even know these functions are being preformed or exactly what our skin is even protecting us from. Since our skin is the barrier between us and our environment, it is greatly affected by the elements and environment around us. Our environment is a major factor in our skins health and appearance. When it comes to the environment and skin, the main focus is on weather and pollutants. When we think of weather and how it can harm our skin, most people think of the sun. The sun is by far a huge problem when it comes to the skin. Its harmful rays cause aging, pigment problems like “sun spots”, freckles and other dark spots, and can make the skin appear leathery and worn. The sun has also been known to cause cancer of the skin. It is very important that sunscreen is always worn. Rain or shine, if you can see outside, then the sun is shining and you need to protect your skin from it.

Other weather conditions like low humidity, which often happens in colder weather, can cause the skin to become dry, irritated, tight, itchy and can cause eczema to flare. When these conditions persist, this dryness leads to lines, wrinkles and premature again. Intensive moisturizers and treatments can help to add lost moisture into the skin. High humidity can cause the skin to swell, not slough off as it should, can cause acne flare […]

Want Instantly Better Skin? Exfoliate!

Everybody needs to exfoliate, no matter your age or skin condition. Getting better skin fast is quite easy. Just make sure to add a product that exfoliates into your daily routine, and you’ll get glowing skin in no time. Exfoliation helps skin look better right away by removing dead cells from the skin’s surface.

As we age our cell turnover rate decreases, taking longer for your new cells to reach the outer layer of skin and leaving your complexion dull and lifeless. Additionally, those dead cells cause congestion resulting in black heads, bumpy or acne prone skin.

To rid your skin of the offending dead cells, choose one of Image Skincare’s products with exfoliating ingredients such as:

Ageless Total Facial Cleanser. This 3 in 1 cleanser (cleanser, exfoliator, toner) contains Glycolic Acid, a highly effective Alpha Hydroxy Acid exfoliant.

Ageless Total Anti-Aging Serum. Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids help speed cell turnover rates leaving skin smooth and renewed.

Anti aging serum

Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser. An organic 3 in 1 cleanser that utilizes Decyl Glucoside, a natural exfoliant and sugar surfactant that exfoliates, moisturizes, and protects skin.

Ormedic Facial cleanser

And our favorite exfoliants, the Vital C Hydrating Mask and Ageless Resurfacing Mask.  Experience our professional products with a relaxing and refreshing facial or microdermabrasion.

Give Your Mascara a Boost…

It’s the end of the day and you’re about to head out for a holiday party.  It’s easy to touch up your makeup, but sometimes tricky when it comes to mascara.  You can’t just add another layer, it makes it clumpy and your lashes will stick together.

We have the perfect solution….

apply a small amount of lotion to your thumb and forefinger
gently rub lotion onto lashes
apply a fresh coat of mascara

The lotion soften and dampens the lashes, allowing the new mascara to adhere to your lashes with out clumping.  It’s the perfect way to plump up your lashes before your next holiday party!!!
