Pearls, Raisins & Cornflakes

Healthy, new skin cells start out as rounded, plump, fluid-filled structures, moving from the lower layers of your skin up to the top (stratum corneum). They are bright, and reflect light (as represented by the pearls).

The closer these 'pearl' cells migrate toward the top, they begin to lose their hydrated center & rounded shape, becoming thinner and irregular in shape, dry, darker, and light absorbing (as represented by the raisins).

The top layer of the skin is known as the stratum corneum. It becomes like a sticky layer...

Ingredient Decks - 101 Why it is Important to Understand Them

Sometimes it seems people pay more attention to the label on a food product - counting calories, sodium, looking for gluten, artificial color/flavor/preservatives, grams of protein, etc.; yet so little concern is paid to what they are using on their bodies. It is ALL relevant, and the skin does absorb more than you think. Whether it's on the face, scalp, or body.

I pulled this random cosmetic label ingredient deck as an example - for education purposes only. Based on its ingredient deck, I can tell you it is a moisturizer (and a heavy,...



Here's The Science:

The outer layer of your skin (the stratum corneum or SC) consists of dead, protein-rich skin cells filled with water-binding chemicals (your natural moisturizing factor or NMF), surrounded by carefully arranged oily lipids (fats: mostly ceramides, cholesterol and fatty acids). Constructed much like a brick wall, skin cells act as bricks and lipids act as the mortar. Together, these form a surface barrier preventing water evaporation from the skin into the environment, and protect against external irritants entering your skin.

When the SC's structure is disturbed, the skin becomes dry...


The breasts are a symbolically feminine part of the body which is so central to a woman's sense of beauty, self-confidence and health. Breast skin is uniquely delicate and gentle, warranting its own specific regimen. Estheticians target common breast skin issues, and can help you have healthier, smoother breast skin with less spots and undesirable benign surface growths.
Breast skin warrants special care. So don't ignore this area or under-pamper it anymore just because it lives under your clothes. It is possible to improve this delicate area.
Women are particularly vulnerable to breast skin aging due to...

New Professional Anti-Aging Protocols !

Don't eliminate your current regimen, just add one product...

As we age, the key components of the anchoring types of collagen fibers which lie in between the epidermis and dermis, becomes significantly disrupted, broken; and lessen in quantity, quality, and density. This loss of collagen -and- damaged collagen fibers leads to some of the tissue laxity that accompanies photo aging (the cumulative detrimental effects on skin resulting from long-term exposure to sunlight).

Skinplicity is introducing the NEWEST form of anti-aging Deep Vitamin A -or- Vitamin C Infusion Delivery Therapy. The...

Enzymes, Enzyme Peels, & other Unnecessary Up-Charges

 Some of my Pet-Peeves which spas pull on clients:


applied to the skin serve several purposes. They digest protein, and have anti-inflammatory properties. Enzymes are a great professional therapy to deeply exfoliate the skin by chemically breaking-down the dead cells (protein) on the surface without harsh exfoliating treatments and abrasives. A clean, exfoliated surface is smooth, brighter, more hydrated, absorbs actives better, and it glows! An enzyme treatment is sometimes referred to as an enzyme peel - just another term for 'up-charge".

There are several types of enzymes used in...

Chemical Sunscreens Dangers

Chemical Sunscreens Dangers

When many of the chemicals used in popular sunscreens are exposed to sunlight, reactions occur between the sunscreen’s active and inactive ingredients and the epidermis. Toxic reactions include inflammation, dermatological effects, allergic reactions and photo- genotoxic (DNA altering) effects.  Chemical sunscreens have in- gredients that actually promote cancer.

Natural sunscreens with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are safer alternatives. [However, there is concern over sun products which have nano-sized particles of these minerals, as they may cross the blood-brain barrier, absorb into the body, and accumulate (bioaccumulative).] Skinplicity does...

Menopause can begin as early as the 40’s, but usually is more common in the 50’s. The transitional from menses,...

"Dry" Skin -vs- "Dehydrated" Skin

Is there a difference between dry vs. dehydrated skin?

  • Dry skin contains little or no natural oil (sebum) 
  • Dehydrated skin is lacking water
  • Dry skin may flake and have a crinkled texture
