THE FUTURE OF SKIN CARE….I AM GOING TO BLOW YOUR MIND! PART 2

A new message from Anti-Aging Skin Care Expert and Board Certified Esthetician, Vivian Moreno.  Is the Skin Care Industry letting you down with false promises?  Is it simply just getting you to buy products? If that is the case, that is ethically wrong!   The Skin Care Industry must do more for their clients than just selling products, therefore it must change.   We as an industry must take a real look at the Future of Skin Care and provide logical answers to Anti-Aging.

I am so annoyed with the entire Skin Care Industry and I am ready to take them on!  I am going to start the largest Skin Care Revolution because it has to change.  We therefore need to look at the Future of Skin Care, because the skin care industry is not looking into the future, we are only trying to sell products, and that is wrong.

Skin Care My Way, no frills, no make-up… just real unadulterated answers to skin care issues.  Come and take this journey with me in finding the true

THE SKIN CARE REVOLUTION BEGINS | THE FUTURE OF SKIN CARE | ANTI-AGING EXPERT & BOARD CERTIFIED ESTHETICIAN VIVIAN MORENO

Anti-Aging Expert and Board Certified Esthetician Vivian Moreno states, ” Skin Care can never fix your Skin, the only thing that can fix your Skin, is your Skin.”  Think about that.

Your Skin is the driving force to improve your appearance.  If it is not in the heightened position to do so by proper care, those goals cannot be met.

Vivian goes further to say, “I am tired of watching these skin care videos, and watching them literally lie!  The lie is their messaging on skin care and how to attain the best results possible, which is, no long term results.”

I simply feel these skin care proponents are misinforming you, regarding skin care expectations.  Skin Care can be compared to Body Building, both take work.  You have to do the work to receive the benefits of the results.   This is what is never addressed, how to sustained and maintain skin care with a continued skin care program.  We at BioKorium Skin Care, have always thought this was of utmost importance.  Therefore, The Skin Care Revolution Begins.

“When I see the damage attacking my skin, I will attack the damage, and get it back to normal.”  The question is, “Is it possible to become ageless?”  Because becoming ageless is the future of skin care.

PHOTOJOURNALING | BACK IN 2011 | HOW I STARTED

 

 

 

 

 

 

I met a friend on Facebook from Rockford, Illinois.  She is posting her photo journal of her laser treatment.  I was so excited, she motivated me into doing a chemical peel on myself.  This is my before pictures, I will start tomorrow and post my photo journal of my chemical peel and how I do it. I wrote an article about her to be posted on my skin blog www.biokorium.com shortly.  It was then that I began to understand the importance of following your facial transitions through photo journaling.  In other words, the Before and After Effect.

This was a blast from the past! November 2011!

CHEMICAL PEELING SEASON | WITH ANTI-AGING SKIN EXPERT VIVIAN MORENO | LESSON FOUR | UNVEILING 7 DAYS AFTER A GLYCOLIC ACID TREATMENT

Lesson Four: Unveiling the fruits of my labor, skin peeling delivers big results. Glycolic Acid creates a certain degree of damage to the skin to create a chemically induced wound.

There are Two Forms of Wound Healing. You either Heal Dry, or you Heal Moist. Moist Healing has been Clinically Shown to attain maximum healing and skin repair results.  Moist Wound Healing has a better overall outcome because it is not allowed to dry out.  Studies show that a moist wound heals 3 to 5 times faster than a dry wound.

The Inflammatory Phase in my opinion, is one of the most important steps to deal with, in order to properly attain maximum skin results.

Proper Healing is the Key to Extraordinary Skin Results! Chemical Peeling is a common practice women do to bring a breath of fresh air to lifeless, old, depleted and damaged skin. The best time to chemically peel the skin is in the cold winter months. The temperature of the day are cooler and daylight time shorter. Having a great skin care plan to follow is of utmost importance in addition to understanding the peeling protocol.  With this in mind, planning the peeling and healing process are a must when designing a personal skin care plan that will work for you. Always check with your Physician when starting any treatment protocol for the skin.  Don’t forget to do a test patch when starting any new product.

CHEMICAL PEELING SEASON | WITH ANTI-AGING SKIN EXPERT VIVIAN MORENO | LESSON TWO | HOW TO MAINTAIN GREAT SKIN DURING THE COLDER MONTHS

Chemical Peeling is a common practice women do to bring a breath of fresh air to lifeless, old, depleted and damaged skin.  The best time to chemically peel the skin is in the cold winter months.  The temperature of the day are cooler and daylight time shorter.   Having a great skin care plan to follow is of utmost importance in addition to understanding the peeling protocol.  With this in mind, planning the peeling and healing process are a must when designing a personal skin care plan that will work for you. Always check with your Physician when starting any treatment protocol for the skin. Don’t forget to do a test patch when starting any new product.

In this video,  BioKorium® Skin Care has placed together a winning combination of three essential products needed to get successful long lasting results: BioKorum® Original Facial Wash, BioKorium® 5% Glycolic Acid Lotion and Skin Water Hydration Cream with Hydro-Force Technology.  Skin Water® provides greater protection to the skin after the peeling process.  It also replenishes necessary hydration and moisture needed to attain proper healing  in order to reach incredible and pristine skin results.

This video will demonstrate how to use Glycolic Acid properly.  The Philosophy at BioKorium® in using Glycolic Acid products for exfoliation, is to increase you skins ability to draw moisture and refresh new growth of healthy skin.  In order to attain the goals with Glycolic Acid, we believe that less of a percentage concentration is safer and more effective. We are going to show how to use lower concentrations of Glycolic Acids in order to attain and receive extraordinary results.

BioKorium® uses an active high purity cosmetic grade glycolic acid incorporated into a pharmaceutical designed hydration lotion base which insures stability and proper activity. These lotions are compounded and calculated based on active or true percentages. Unlike others, our glycolic products are unaltered or neutralized in any way. Use as directed per licensed Aesthetician.

Proper hydration is crucial in order to maintain a proper functioning body, as well as healthy skin. Our Skin Water® Hydration Cream was designed with this concept in mind. Therefore proper hydration internally as well as externally contributes to reaching Anti-Aging goals. We at BioKorium® believe you need a Gulp of Water to maintain Skin Hydration, not a Sip! Skin Water® Hydration Cream is the Big Gulp of Moisturizers.

BioKorium has been experimenting with the application of Glycolic Acid to their clients and family for 18 years. We are convinced it is the safest way to remove dead skin cells and debris from the skin.

These products are designed to work. Results from BioKorium facials using Glycolic Acids are noticed immediately. Glycolic Acid is one of a group of naturally occurring fruit acids also recognized as Alpha Hydroxy Acids or AHA’s. AHA’s are among the oldest of skin care products. Glycolic Acid is derived from sugar cane and is non-toxic. It has the ability to dissolve the glue from the upper layer of skin cells allowing a more youthful, smoother looking appearance to be revealed. Unlike other AHA’s such as lactic acid from sour milk, Glycolic Acid has the smallest molecular size, therefore it can penetrate the skin more efficiently. It also has the ability to absorb water upon exposure to air therefore functioning to add moisture back into the skin.

CRISIS IN THE SKIN CARE INDUSTRY | YOU ARE AGING | ANTI-AGING WITH BIOKORIUM® SKIN WATER®

 

Practicing Anti-Aging is the specialty at BioKorium® Skin Care.   In this episode, the Skin Water® absorption challenge gave her tighter, smoother skin and thinner facial features. We call it “De-Puffing” the Face.  You can visually see in both instances the disappearance of the product, hence, Skin Water’s® ability to Hydro-Force® moisture into the skin.

Proper hydration is crucial in order to maintain a proper functioning body, as well as healthy skin.  What is enough water?  Approximately eight glasses of water per day which is 64 fluid ounces.  What would happen to your body if you were allowed to only drink 1 fluid ounce of water daily?  You would absolutely know it would directly impact all bodily functions in a bad way.  Hence, we can look at Skin Care in the same manner.  The Skin Care Industry has long sold the concept that there 1.7 ounce jar of cream will do it all, from skin hydration to skin tightening.  Skin contain 64% water.  If that 1.7 ounce cream was to last you the month, do you actually think it will do things it was marketed to do?  At BioKorium we believe that you would need if not 8 ounces but 16 ounces in order to maintain proper skin hydration for a month.  Our Skin Water Hydration Cream was designed with this concept in mind.  Therefore proper hydration internally as well as externally contributes to reaching Anti-Aging goals.  If one had to only utilize 1.7 ounces of cream per month, your skin would be dying of thirst!  You’re body does not need a sip of water to maintain proper skin care, you need a gulp!

THE SCIENCE:

Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) refers to the evaporation of water through the epidermis, or outer layer, of your skin.   As we get older the loss of water through evaporation via your skin becomes higher.   What does it means when your skin is unable to properly maintain its suppleness through normal hydration?  This means that excess Transepidermal Water Loss is occurring due to damage or age impairment to the skin’s protective barrier faster than the body can replace it, therefore allowing excess moisture content to evaporate from the skin into the atmosphere, resulting in dry, irritated, dehydrated and/or itchy skin.  A high TEWL may also make your skin more prone to infection through easier entry of bacteria through dry cracked skin.  Dry skin also tends to appear more aged, as fine lines and wrinkles are accentuated.

The future of Skin Care is in forcing water into the skin.  Proper use of topical moisturizing and hydration products such as BioKorium® Skin Water® Hydration Cream with Hydro-Force® Technology can work to repair age related skin damage and a weakened skin barrier in order to reverse Transepidermal Water Loss and combat the signs of aging.

In this Part Two Episode, Anti-Aging Skin Care Expert and Board Certified Esthetician Vivian Moreno demonstrates what will happen when you leave Skin Water® Hydration Cream overnight along with a covering of saran wrap and secret sauce ( which she will divulge shortly in an upcoming video).
