What is Alpha hydroxy acids ?



Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA's) work mainly as an exfoliant. They cause the cells of the epidermis to become "unglued" allowing the dead skin cells to slough off, making room for regrowth of new skin. 

AHA's may even stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, and are reported to improve wrinkling, roughness, and mottled pigmentation of photodamaged skin after months of daily application. 

Alpha hydroxy acids found in skin-care products work best in a concentration of 5% to 8% and at a pH of 3 to 4. Beta hydroxy acid, salicylic acid, is a topical exfoliant that can reverse some of the effects of photoaging such as fine wrinkles and discolored skin. 

Currently, salicylic acid is the only beta hydroxy acid used as an exfoliant.


• Exfoliation (desquamation of horny cells) 
• Moisturization (reducing water loss) 
• Anti-wrinkle effect 
• Skin-whitening effect 
• Smoothing effect 
• Improves skin texture & tone 
• Unblocks & cleans pores 

Skin Care By Age


Taking care of your skin is very important is you want to have a beautiful complexion!



Peptides and retinoid are very important ingredients for anti-aging purposes.

There are various active ingredients known to have regenerating effects in skin cells helping to slow down degenerative processes as they occur in the aging skin. Regenerative processes may include stimulation of the production of proteins (e.g. collagen, elastin), prevention of water loss, stimulation of the skin's blood circulation, replenishing the subepidermis with natural lipids, and maintenance of the natural homeostasis of the skin cell. Antioxidants like, for example, vitamin C and vitamin E are usually also used in anti-aging cosmetic products.

You need to use skin care products to improve the structural integrity of the skin and nourish the skin. Good skin care products leads to skin compactness, reduces appearance of wrinkles, increases tonicity & firmness. 

Skin may appear darker than normal and may be blotchy, uneven areas, or patches of brown to gray discoloration or freckling. Skin pigmentation disorders occur because the body produces either too much or too little melanin, a pigment produced by melanocytes. Increased melanin production, also known as hyperpigmentation, is often referred to as melasma (general term describing darkening of the skin), chloasma (discolorations caused by hormones) or solar lentigines (darkened spots on the skin caused by the sun). In addition, hyperpigmentation can be caused by skin damage, such as remnants of blemishes, wounds or rashes.


Skin-lighteners (like bearberry leaves extract and undecylenoyl phenylalanine) inhibit melanin tyrosinase or melanotropin and reduce or block some amount of melanin production. Many treatments use a combination of topical lotions or gels containing melanin-inhibiting ingredients along with a sunscreen, and a prescription retinoid. Depending on how the skin responds to these treatments exfoliants, either in the form of topical cosmetic or chemical peels, and lasers may be used.

Did you know that  the peptide (Tripeptide-5), as been found to stimulate of collagen synthesis in the skin and improve significantly the appearance of any type of wrinkle. Has good skin firming & moisturizing properties. May be able to reduce appearance of stretch marks. In clinical study with 60 volunteers a reduction of 350% of the appearance of wrinkles was shown after use of 84 days. May be alternate to collagen injections used in lip products to help stimulate collagen synthesis.

Also Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein, is a unique collagen protein concentrate. Manufactured via an enzymatic hydrolysis process, mixture of straight chain polypeptide with an average molecular weight of 2000. It offers excellent moisturizing properties and can increase the density of collagen fibrils and also fibroblast density (the fibroblasts produce collagen).

DID YOU KNOW:
There is many skin peels out there.... Jessner, Lactic, Glycolic, Phenol, TCA, etc...
The TCA peel is a peel that penetrates deeper in the skin without irritation....
Doing a perfect TCA PEEL requires that you use the LEAST STRENGTH needed to abrade the stratum corneum layer. This is a percentage over 10% and under 20.
TCA over this strength will cause the skin to frost or turn white (similar to an light broiler burn).
The Gorgeous Peel from I’m Fabulous ® has a proven theory of abrading just enough of the stratum corneum to cause the skin to send valuable protein to the surface. When you frost the skin too deeply, your body goes into wound repair mode where it creates antibodies, scar tissue, melanin and other secretions, which may easily cause the skin to age faster!
Melanin is produced when you tan, and when you are wounded and when you have surges of progesterone (hormonal hyper pigmentation). When you go too deep into the epidermis or sub cutis layers by using high doses of a caustic chemical, your skin produces healing protein to bandage the chemical peel. This is not the correct way to do a peel.


  
An incredible peel! Selling like crazy in Europe in physician offices already!
Due to the intense mix of active ingredients it will cause a very fast drying and drawing of the topmost .01 micron. In most cases this will peel almost instantly or within 24 hours.                               
The Gorgeous peel tends to be a rather rapid exfoliation and one that you can expedite by compressing a warm cloth or even using your ring finger to roll the dead skin off. 
Questions:
Will the treatment help to remove my pregnancy masque?
Yes. However, you will probably need to do more than one Peel treatment.
Will the treatment help to remove my freckles?
The treatment will not remove freckles that you were born with. However, it will help in the removal of freckles caused by sun damage, pregnancy mask and aging.
I have severe acne; will the treatment help my condition?
The treatment will help to treat the problems left once the acne has been properly treated under the guidance of your doctor or dermatologist. Such problems can range from, the marks left by acne, uneven skin tone, rough thickened skin and hyper-pigmentation.
My acne scarring (pitted) is extremely slight; will the treatment help to remove it?
The Gorgeous Peel treatment will only penetrate as deep as the epidermal (outer) layers of skin. It will never penetrate into the dermis (bottom) layer of skin. Therefore, if you are treating pitted acne scarring (as light as they may be) then the treatment will not be able to remove these marks totally as they generally tend to be deep in the bottom (dermis) layer of skin. It will however, help to make these scars less noticeable than they were before you did the treatment.
Will the Gorgeous Peel remove my pitted acne scarring?
If you are treating acne scarring in the form of darkened or reddened marks then the Gorgeous Peel treatment will help to remove these marks. The Gorgeous Peel treatment will only penetrate as deep as the epidermal (outer) layers of skin. It will never penetrate into the dermis (bottom) layer of skin. Therefore, if you are treating pitted acne scarring then the treatment will not be able to remove these marks totally as they generally tend to be deep in the bottom (dermis) layer of skin. It will however, help to make these scars less noticeable than they were before you did the treatment. An ideal candidate for one of our treatments is someone who is looking for improvement rather than perfection.
Can I apply Makeup after the Gorgeous Peel?
Yes but preferably mineral makeup because you do not want to apply anything cream or moisturizing.
Is the Gorgeous peel good for all skin types?
Yes, dark skin and all skin types
I'm Fabulous skin care theory is to PEEL more than you HEAL!!!
 The second benefit of facial resurfacing that is done CORRECTLY is the SURGE of collagen and elastin that occurs post peel.
The trick behind an awesome peel is to FOOL the skin into secreting a TON of natural collagen and elastin to the effected area. BUT! If you DO burn you skin, using high doses (some are very unrepeatable), then ALL of that natural protein becomes WOUND REPAIR and it will have NO benefit to your new skin growth, for it is used up on trying to HEAL the skin that is in trauma.
The concept of resurfacing is LOST on this type of peel because the skin spends MORE TIME HEALING, than it does peeling.
A peel done correctly is a proven theory of abrading just enough of the stratum corneum to cause the skin to send valuable protein to the surface. When you FROST the skin too deeply, your body goes into WOUND REPAIR MODE where it creates antibodies, scar tissue, melanin and other secretions, which MAY easily cause the skin to age faster! Melanin is produced when you tan, and when you are wounded and when you have surges of progesterone (hormonal hyper pigmentation). When you go too deep into the epidermis or sub cutis layers by using high doses of a caustic chemical, your skin produces HEALING PROTEIN to bandage the chemical peel.
The concept of resurfacing the epidermis (face) has been around for many years. 20 years ago, plastic surgeons were doing WIRE DERMABRASION techniques that removed the stratum corneum and about 10-20 full micron of skin. The healing process was devastating for most patients. They suffered from hyper (dark) and hypo (white) pigmentation and an uneven skin surface.
In the last 20 years and have perfected the technique of LASER RESURFACING.
However it is STILL both expensive and has a 4-month healing process.
Most people cannot GO 4 months without working or being seen in public.
The concept of resurfacing the skin using A MILDER technique of facial resurfacing is one that is beneficial in TWO very specific ways. By abrading (killing and removing) small amounts of skin, about .01-.03 micron per treatment, you will expose SMOOTHER skin after just ONE result.
I'm Fabulous has developed the "Gorgeous peel" it is like a slow laser resurfacing treatment, one that even with my microdermabrader, I could NEVER MATCH because at one sitting, I'm taking off .01 micron, whereas the skincare products are a slow transdermal delivery removing a safe .03 micron per 4-6 days. Since it is ongoing, the new skin cell turnover is so RAPID; the anti aging benefits are HUGE. This rapid turnover triggers a wound repair reaction, so the skin floods the epidermis/stratum with COLLAGEN / ELASTIN-DNA REPAIR. And since there is no wound, or fire to extinguish, these proteins simply begin repairing and rebuilding cells on their own. Its TRULY rapid age reversal.
Is there any discomfort?  Could be a tiny bit. The application will sting until it has acclimated to the skins natural PH level. Although salt can shut this product down it is not recommended that you stop the peel before it has finished. I recommend having a cold wet cloth at the ready to hold and press onto the skin for comfort sake.
Is there any 'down time' that I should be prepared for? No downtime, you can apply mineral makeup only, if needed after the peel. You will feel your skintight for about 48 hours after the peel then your skin will peel off gently. You can redo the peel anytime, and you can even do 2 or 3 layers, meaning you apply it 2 or 3 times on your face then start looking at the clock to start the 3 minutes, then rinse off.
Seriously, how will I look? You will look fine! No worse than managing a peeling suntan!
Can I do a little test spot first? Yes! I insist that you do! In fact personally I never do a full-face peel. I do my lower nasal folds and chin on one treatment and then forehead on a second week. There is no special formula of application that you have to follow. 
How many peels will I get in this 1 oz. bottle? You will be able to do more than 100 applications with just 1 oz.
I'm Fabulous Cosmetics pure Hyaluronic Acid serum is highly recommended for post peel.  
The key to flawless skin is RAPID EXFOLIATION followed by INFUSION OF PROTEIN (hyaluronic protein).
Buyer and user must wear a Sunblock after the peel for several months.

Why some of the most expensive serum are bad for you and your skin?

Lot of high end department stores sell anti-aging wrinkle 

serums for up to $5000 per bottle or jar!




PRICE TAG: $600


Is Dimethicone is BAD FOR YOU!

Those serums contains Dimethicone which is a silicone that just temporarly mask your wrinkles instead of treating your wrinkles and are bad for you because:


What is Dimethicone?
Dimethicone is what the chemists like to call a silicon-based polymer—”polymer” meaning it’s a large molecule made up of several smaller units bonded together. Simply put, it’s a silicon oil, man-made in the laboratory and used in personal care products as an anti-foaming agent, skin protectant, and skin and hair conditioner.
Manufacturers like it because it makes products easily spreadable, so you get that feeling of the lotion or cream gliding over your skin. Dimethicone also helps form a protective barrier on the skin, and can fill in the fine lines and wrinkles on the face, which is why it’s often used in makeup primers.
Is Dimethicone Safe?
The FDA has approved the use of dimethicone as a skin protectant ingredient in over-the-counter products, and the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) panel has assessed it as safe to use in personal care products. Some studies have found it to soothe and help improve chronic hand dermatitis, and to help reduce inflammation and irritation. The Skin Deep Database also lists it has have a low hazard risk.
For me, though, this is not a good ingredient to be using in your daily skin care. Like petroleum products, silicone oils can actually make dry skin worse over time. Instead of sinking into your skin and nourishing it from the inside out, like healthy ingredients do, it forms a sort of plastic-like barrier on the outside of skin.
Why Dimethicone is Bad for Your Skin
That artificial coating on the outside of skin causes several issues:
  • It traps everything under it—including bacteria, sebum, and impurities—which could lead to increased breakouts and blackheads
  • The coating action actually prevents the skin from performing its normal activities—like sweating, temperature regulating, sloughing off dead skin cells, etc.
  • Prolonged exposure to dimethicone can actually increase skin irritation, due to the coating property and because dimethicone is listed as a possible skin and eye irritant
  • Those with sensitive or reactive skin are at risk of an allergic reaction to dimethicone
  • On top of all this, dimethicone is a non-biodegradable chemical—bad for the environment
I also believe that using these types of ingredients on your skin can actually exacerbate skin aging. Why?
  • You’re inhibiting skin’s natural processes
  • You’re creating a dependency on the coating product, disrupting the skin’s own hydrating processes, which in the end increases dryness, making fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable
  • The coating properties may increase breakouts, particularly if you’re susceptible to acne, which will lead to scars and older-looking skin
  • You’re doing nothing to boost the health and vitality of the skin, thus letting aging take its toll
Much better to use nourishing ingredients that help keep your skin hydrated naturally! 
To avoid this ingredient, stay away from all dimethicone and similar ingredients like cyclomethicone, dimethiconol, and phenyl trimethicone.

Expert Ski Tips



1. Don’t Pick!—Though tempting, picking skin over the infected area keeps it from healing, leaving your 
skin red and irritated longer.


2. Cortisone Injection—This trick is handy for brides who wake up with a wedding-day pimple. The 
pimple can be treated with a Cortisone injection which
safelyand quickly vanishes the red bump.

3. Brightening Lotion—Helps camouflage the red/brown pigmented area surrounding the
pimple so it is less noticeable as it heals.

4. SPF—Sunscreen keeps the sun from irritating and inflaming pimples, reducing the likelihood of scarring.

5. Tea Tree Oil—Less harsh than benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, applying tee tree oil as a spot treatment can gently reduce swelling, or help prevent breakouts all together if applied to acne-prone areas before breakouts occur.
