I have always been into skincare and testing new products, facials, lasers, whatever and I must say I am completely OBSESSED with the peel I got last week at Dr. Dennis Gross’s uptown Manhattan office. I’m not going to lie when the esthetician told me it was going to be intense I was thinking “how intense could it be” oh it is intense (like little red ants trying to get out from under your skin) BUT worth it!! Here is the best part ladies and gentlemen… it took less than 15 minutes and with little redness it is totally a “do it on your lunch break” kind of treatment.
My skin was tight for a couple days following the peel and I had some peeling (not too bad, especially compared to most peels) but now my skins looks really clear and I swear I see a difference in the lines on my forehead.
Bottom line if you have the chance to go and get a peel at Dr. Dennis Gross’s office do it!! I have been trying to figure out when I can go back, and I should probably be finding a therapist at the same time to work on my addiction issues too, right! - XO Kate
Both Kate and I are big fans of the Active Vitamin D Serum Oil. We had the chance to start using it before we launched it on 3Floz.com and within a month we both noticed an improvement in our skin! Take our word for it or hear from Dr. Gross himself on the importance of Vitamin D for our skin, and the benefits of his new product - Active Vitamin D Serum Oil .
It may be raining and overcast in NYC today but summer is just around the corner and we want to make sure you keep you skin clear and sunburn free!
The Problem| Breakouts
Solution: Intensify your anti-acne routine.
Benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid work to kill acne bacteria, reduce oil, calm inflammation and clear pores. Try the Ole Henriksen Roll-On Blemish Attack - the perfect weapon in the war against breakouts. The convenient roll-on applicator provides portability and seamless application.
The Problem | Uneven Tone
Solution: Combine brightening and exfoliating treatments - and stay out of the sun.
Use a product with Retin-A. Try the DDF Retinol Energizing Moisturizer - contains a potent form of Vitamin A in combination with Omega-3 essential fatty acids and humectants to help recondition skin for firmer more youthful-appearing skin tone and texture.
The Problem | Ashy Skin
Solution: Exfoliate and hydrate!
Alpha-Hydroxy Acids loosen dead skin cells and strengthen your skin’s outermost layer. Try Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peels - an easy 2- step system gives you a highly developed skincare regimen plus Microexfoliation. Microexfoliation is a gentle, non-irritating method of removing cellular debris from the surface of the skin, resulting in a smoother, firmer more even complexion.
The Problem | Sunburn
Solution: Find soothing ingredients.
Soothing ingredients like aloe can speed healing. Try Anthony foe Men After Sun Soothing Creme - Aloe is a natural Ingredient that moisturizes, soothes, and helps promote healing and calms. Refreshes, softens and soothes. In high concentrations in a cream or lotion, aloe extract can have healing properties and is also a mild humectant. Called the “medicinal plant” for its wound-healing properties. Helps restore the natural pH level to skin. Research suggests that Aloe Vera is very popular with men.
Just saw on twitter yesterday that there is yet ANOTHER reason to love the Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peels - You can use them on your elbows, knees, heels and other rough spots to exfoliate!! How amazing is that!! I am going to use them tonight and will report back.
