The eyes are the window of the soul.
Being sleep deprived for a long period of time can totally wreak havoc on your skin. Obviously I can speak from experience here after having a baby almost a year ago. The skin is a reflection of how we feel on the inside so if your body is tired most likely the look of your skin will be compromised as well.
One area I am often asked about is the eye area. It is the most delicate area of the face and shows the fine lines, puffiness and dryness the most. Caffeine is excellent for stimulating this area and making it look refreshed again much like your morning cup of Joe helps with your energy levels. Around the eye area coffee extract or caffeine in other forms can help with puffiness and dark circles (non-genetic dark circles).
One of my favorite eye creams with Coffee and Green tea extract is the 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream. It is moisturizing but not too heavy, helps with inflammation and fine lines. Click on the website info to learn more.

Most of the male clientele I have treated are in the market for a simple routine. Products that have multiple functions in one tube, always a bonus. I like this Neutrogena product for that very reason. Great for an after shave, moisturizer and SPF. Has a subtle masculine fragrance and is quite lightweight. Although it does hydrate even dry skin living in a dessert climate…you know who you are. Thanks for the tip.
Can’t beat the price either at $6.99 on Neutrogena.com or at your local drugstore.

I know I have spoken about this Evian Spray before and you know how crazy I am about toners. This was my “go-to” spray toner this summer during the ridiculous heat, which by the way isn’t going away. I really liked to drench my skin whenever possible, especially right after my shower and before I apply skin care treatment products. It also can be used right on top of your make-up. The packaging is recyclable and the sprayer does not harm the environment.
At Skin Store.com they have a variety of sizes so you can bring one with you on a plane and keep one in your purse. Is it Fall yet?!

Have you been to a Dermatologist this year? Well, maybe its time you made an appointment. More than 90 percent of dermatologic surgeons have seen at least one patient in the past year with cancer that was overlooked or misdiagnosed by a non-dermatologist, finds a survey of by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.
There is mixed feelings about the frequency of exams but after what I have read the safest bet is going with an annual screening. Especially if you are considered high risk spending time in the sun now and in the past.
Cancer.org has great information and facts regarding skin cancer and how to prevent it.
Summer is almost over, but the heat? Not so much. I just purchased one of my favorite SPF’s ultra sensitive faceblock spf25 by Dermalogica and I have fallen in love all over again. This oldie but goodie was a product I used to recommend to my clients all of the time and I love it for my skin as well. It is great for sensitivity but anyone can use it. I like to use it as my “foundation” sometimes because it’s tinted and has a beautiful shade (and that is one less step for me on a busy morning!).
