In the world of skincare there are thousands of products, hot “new” ingredients, and hundreds of skincare lines… which can make deciphering everything extremely complicated. But, the one ingredient that will always trump them all is Vitamin C. If you’re trying to look 20 when you are 40, then you need to get started on a Vitamin C Serum right away.

There are SO many benefits of Vitamin C Serum that provide amazing results for all ages and all skin types. Best yet, while it corrects the skin it is still gentle enough to use every day!

A few of the amazing benefits of Vitamin C Serum are:

Promotes Collagen Production

Fine lines and wrinkles are generally the biggest concern for most women. The regular use of vitamin C products can combat their very appearance because of their concentrated levels of antioxidants, which helps boost collagen production, filling in fine lines and wrinkles

Protects skin from Sun Damage

Vitamin C is great for protecting your skin from damage—especially from the sun's UVA and UVB rays. It naturally helps to strengthen your skin and repel things that could damage it. When combined with sunscreen you can save your skin from burns, hyperpigmentation and even cancer.

 Speeds Up Healing and Reduces Inflammation

High levels of Vitamin C can help to heal small cuts, acne scars, and other blemishes more quickly and effectively. Vitamin C, in high enough concentrations, has inflammation-reducing qualities. This is ideal for people who tend to wake up in the morning with unsightly puffiness around the eyes or other areas of the face

 Reduces Skin Discoloration and Improves Brightness and Radiance

If you suffer from skin redness or Hyperpigmentation (dark spots) of the skin, then a quality vitamin C serum may also be able to help you achieve a more even skin tone and better complexion. In addition to improving your skin's overall complexion, vitamin C can brighten otherwise dull skin, allowing it to look healthier and more vibrant. Your skin will look and feel replenished and revitalized.

Improves Hydration

If you suffer from dry skin, vitamin C is a must. You can enjoy the high concentration of vitamins that your body truly needs to improve moisture content and overall hydration

These are just some of the many benefits of vitamin C serum and why I say it’s the Holy Grail of skincare!

You NEED Dermaplaning in your life

Dermaplaning is a skin care treatment that removes the top layer of dead skin cells. As an added benefit it also removes vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. A licensed and certified esthetician uses a small sterile scalpel to exfoliate the skins surface in a gentle and upward motion. It is completely pain free and let’s face it...amazing!

You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture, tone and you will have a gorgeous glow. The long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of fine facial hair. Over time your skin will appear brighter, smoother and more youthful.

Aside from a great exfoliation, dermaplaning removes peach fuzz. This is beneficial since the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look. Once we remove the dead skin and vellus hair, skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. There is another added bonus; Your makeup goes on smoother as well.

The only contraindication is for dermaplaning is active pustular acne. If you would like to try dermaplaning and you have pustular acne, we can start clear complexion treatments to clear your acne. Once we have cleared your skin, then we can start dermaplaning treatments.

Its important to know that clients can't just treat their skin when they see a specialist—they have to do it at home too. A proper home care regimen along with professional treatments will give you the best and longest lasting results. At-home micro peels between professional treatments can really boost and maintain your results. If you are battling acne, a light at-home peel will gently exfoliate, kill acne-causing bacteria, and calm inflammation. Micro peels can hydrate, lift hyperpigmentation, and speed up cell turnover, all revealing brighter, healthier, more glowing skin. LeMieux has great home micro peel pads that will boost radiant and clear skin.
