The Importance of Hyaluronic Acid for Your Skin!

The Importance of Hyaluronic Acid for Your Skin!

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in Skincare

 

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an immensely popular ingredient in skincare. BiON includes it in Oil Free Moisturizing Gel, Pure Hydration Serum, Moisture Complex, Titanium Dioxide Suncream, Tinted Mineral SPF 35, Ultra Moisture Renewal, Naturally Soft Body Lotion, Collagen Revival Serum, Mandelic Acid Serum, Dermatitis Cream, Seaweed Mask, and Youthful Eyes Peptide Cream. It’s also naturally found in the body. Most of it dwells in the extracellular matrix, the structure which holds up the cells of your skin. Hyaluronic acid is found in both the epidermis and the deeper dermis, where it plays an important role in hydration, metabolic processes, skin repair, and protection against free radical and UV damage.
HA is a glycosaminoglycan, a class of chemicals that can hold onto water very efficiently. Due to its very polar nature 1 gram of HA can hold onto 6 liters of water! HA keeps skin firm and plump.
In skincare, HA is mostly used for its incredible ability to hold onto moisture and is included in moisturizers and serums as a humectant ingredient. Humectants hydrate the skin, and since one of the effects of dehydrated skin is fine lines and wrinkles, this can make your skin look dramatically younger and less tired.
The HA used in skincare isn’t all the same. It’s usually divided into different sizes: there’s high molecular weight HA, which has a larger molecular size, and low molecular weight HA, which is formed by chopping it into smaller fragments. The main significance of the different sizes is that smaller molecules are able to penetrate the skin better than larger molecules, which means that low molecular weight HA can hydrate deeper than high molecular weight HA, which holds onto water at the surface of the skin. Unfortunately, even low molecular HA can only penetrate into the lower epidermis. The size of low molecular weight HA is still far beyond the size limit that allows penetration through the skin barrier. When applied topically, both of these molecules sit on the skin surface or within the topmost layer of the skin.
There’s some debate on how low molecular weight HA can act as an inflammatory signal and therefore be harmful. BiON uses predominantly high molecular weight HA because of its added ability to bring moisture to the skin, its ability to form a cosmetically pleasing gel form and because, unlike low molecular weight HA it does not promote inflammation.

The Best Way To Use Glycolic Acid

Some people buy the highest percentage of glycolic acid they can find and use it, assuming a higher concentration means better results, faster …

This is not true, and skin that is not accustomed to glycolic acid or who is already sensitive can react badly. Continue reading for detailed information on how to use glycolic acid to ensure clear, healthy and amazing skin!

How To Use Glycolic Acid

Start with products that contain between 5 – 8%

  • Daily exfoliator is one of the best choices, because it provides consistent use that is easy and the right way to build tolerance of your skin.
  • Monitor how your skin reacts – if the skin becomes red or irritated, reduce its use every 2 or 3 days for several weeks
  • Increase the frequency of application or the time remaining on the skin if your skin no longer reacts as it did in the beginning (eg less tingling sensation, no redness)
  • Monitor your skin! You might not need to add anything – many people find using a good product with a concentration of 5 – 10% every day is enough to keep the skin healthy and clean from blackheads and fine lines

Make sure you use good sunscreen every day!

Recommended Products:
Glycolic Cleansers 1%-3% Glycolic

Glycolic Multi-Fruit Cleansing Milk

Glycolic Mud Cleanser by Skin Care By Suzie

BiON Glycolic Cleanser

Glycolic Products up to 10%

Alpha + MSM face & throat Cream 8%

10% Glycolic Cream

The above products are suitable for daily use, but again monitor your skin.

The Importance of Concentration (%) and Building

Retail products contain glycolic acid levels in concentrations from 1% to 50%.
Understand these product Contain glycolic acid levels in concentrations from 1% to 50%, The are not pure glycolic acid like a weekly peel would be, They do not require any prep or neutralizer like a peel would.

Chemical peels performed by Estheticians or available for home use range from 30% to 70%
These are pure glycolic acid and require prepping solution and neutralizing solution
WE NEVER RECOMMEND ANYTHING STRONGER THE 50% FOR HOME USE.
We & Doctors treat a lot of people who think the can use a 70% on themselves, If not done properly it van cause burns, hyper-pigmentation and even scars

.

To get the benefits of using glycolic acid at home, it is recommended to use a low percentage consistently as part of your skin care routine and get amazing results:

  • Evaluate how your skin feels when you use it – mild tingling is normal the first few times, and is an indication that the skin is functioning. It should not be painful or cause peeling after use
  • If this is too much, you can reduce its use to every second day – or you might need to start on frequency every few days. It’s alright, just like you listen to your skin.
  • After 3 or 4 weeks you can increase the frequency or time of application. Now your skin will get used to acids and will be able to handle higher concentrations. It’s optional – regular use of your 5-8% favorite products is just fine!
  • Some people claim that concentrations lower than 20% are not feasible – but this is dangerous because it can cause long-term damage to the skin if not used properly.
  • The low dose used consistently works best to help restore normal health, keep it clear, and provide fresh bright skin.

Recommended products with increased Glycolic percentage that do not need any prep or neutralizer

15% Glycolic Cream

Vegan Alpha Hydroxy Night Crème 15%

Treatment Products:

Treatment products are designed to use once or twice a week. Although the maybe the same (or even lower) percentage of glycolic as the above products they are actually stronger because the do not have the same buffering products in them. They do not require any prepping or neautralizing

Glycolic Exfoliating Masque

15% Glycolic Treatment Gel

Glycolic Peels

Again work your way in to the peel starting at a lower percentage,  THESE DO REQUIRE PREPPING AND NEUTRALIZING

GLYCOLIC ACID PEEL PADS Complete Set

GLYCOLIC ACID PEEL PAD SAMPLER KITS

Make sure you use good sunscreen every day!  It is best not to go out into the san the same day you use a peel.

Who Should not Use Glycolic Acid?

Do not use if you:

  • Do or have recently stopped using prescription drugs for acne
  • Recently underwent microdermabrasion treatment
  • Use a sunbed or often sunbathe without adequate protection
  • Having thin or sensitive skin

Using glycolic acid in your normal skin care routine is easy once you know how – and remember the importance of building your skin’s tolerance.

Nothing beats consistency in skin care, and this is especially true when using this AHA.

This can greatly improve the condition of the skin by balancing the acid mantle, providing even and deep exfoliation, and increasing cell turnover which results in a healthy, fresh face.

Alopecia & Hair Loss

Hair Loss Concealer and Hair Building Fibers For Alopecia and Baldness

Not really ready to adopt hair loss?

There are two forms of hair loss concealer. Both are abundant in Moisturizers, and the two are wildly used by Women and Men’s suffering from  hair loss, such as Alopecia & androgenic alopecia (male pattern hair loss ).

A product such as Sevich Scalp Concealer and Skin Care By Suzie Hair Loss Thickener is a colored, compressed Powder which covers bald sections, leaving a matte finish and a feeling of fullness and depth, even under bright lights and powerful sunlight.

Products such as  Ecobell Scalp Concealing Masking Lotion do exactly the identical task, but also come as a cream.  This product has become a direct replacement for Couvre Scalp Concealer which has bee discontinued. Waterproof, dry-touch formula with natural pigments conceals the scalp, resulting in hair that looks fuller and thicker Eliminates the contrast between hair and scalp. so hair looks thicker and fuller.

Hair construction fibers are microfibers that bond into your own hair with static electricity, which makes it seem fuller and more plentiful.

There are two kinds hair fibers natural keratin & synthetic , Keratin which Is the most important part of human hair and artificial fibers. Results will be the same whichever you select. Keratin fibers such as Sevich and Suzie’s Own Fibers are the best recommendation

Fibers are packed in a shaker container for simple application.
When to Utilize Concealer

If you do not intend to go hairless, and you do not desire others to notice You are balding, begin utilizing hair loss concealer the minute you observe your scalp through your own hair. Hair  fibers may be used rather than concealer at this phase, but concealer is not as costly in the long run and functions equally well.

Hair fibers create the presents of thicker hair. Use fibers Whenever there is to much hair loss for scalp concealers to work alone.
Which Color to Pick

Options Of color is somewhat limited, so pick a color near your own, and think of lightness and darkness rather than attempting to obtain a perfect fit.

Since scalp concealers is meant to create an impression of Thickness, make certain it’s either of the specific same level of shadow as your own hair or a bit darker.

A color too light would look unnatural.

Hair fibers need to be of Precisely the Exact Same level of darkness As your own hair. Much like hair loss concealer, if the fibers are not dark enough, the result will probably be powdery. If they’re too dark, the color will appear rough and too saturated to be organic.

If your hair is streaked or emphasized, use concealer and fibers at the exact same amount of darkness because your deepest hair.

Concealer and fibers can be found in white and gray. A combo of both, select according to a dominant color.

If you are balding at the crown, then comb your own hair back. If your temples and hairline are thinning, then make your barber or hairdresser to cut your own hair so it may be comb forward. With styling that is smart, you may even pull up hair from the sides to inconspicuously protect the temples.

You will obviously need to soften the provided sponge applicator before Employing a water triggered product, but you are going to find a better finish if you do exactly the same as using a cream. Do not literally wet the sponge; it must just be somewhat moist.

Concealer is more readily applied to wet hair, but that can Lead to a Dull, chalky look. If you discover this to be the situation, apply to dry hair.

To disguise thinning hair in the front of the hairline and in the Temples, use concealer from underneath your hairline at which you have lots of hair and mix with rapid, short strokes in most directions. Blending in front should fade from where your hairline starts.

If you are thinning on top or towards the back, mix from the Center of the hairless area in all directions and to the warmer encircling hair.

You are going to need an excess hand mirror to find out what you are doing.

It is recommended for you to use hair building fibers together with hair loss concealer. In so doing, you will have the ability to use fewer fibers, which provides more natural-looking outcomes.

So that the fibers bond into your own hair, shake the container prior to use to create static electricity.

Instead of just sprinkling, maintain the container upside down on your own Head and tap on the bottom very gently. This way you’ll have more control on how much product that you employ –a lot of will make your hair appear matted and unnatural.
Add a lesser quantity into the surrounding hair. Wipe debris away which land in your brow using a cotton pad.

Regardless of static power, the fibers still require adjusting with Hairspray or even a spray-on gel. Spray from a reasonable distance or you will burst away the fibers.

If your design needs adjusting after spraying, then take action before the spray places with your fingers.

Face Bright Peeling Gel contains ingredients which penetrate deep into the pores where old cells cause premature wrinkles and a dull, lifeless appearance.
 
You’ll see,
Face Bright Peeling Gel acts like a magnet to remove microscopic impurities and old skin cells, increases the blood flow, effectively and more gently promotes growth of new cells, evens the skin tone and fades discolorations.

After cleansing, apply a quarter-sized amount of Face Bright Peeling Gel to damp
face, avoiding the eye and lip area. Gently massage with fingertips using circular motions for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Dead skin residue will form. Rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water. Use once or twice a week for best results.

By exfoliating and hydrating the skin with Face Bright Peeling Gel you will reduce the age of the skin cells on your face and throat, giving you a more Fresh, Radiant and Youthful appearance.

Big Changes For kNutek MD

UPDATE 10/31/2018:

After having several meetings with kNutek we will be caring their products again, Currently they are only producing the 6 products below.   We will be having them create and produce these products under our brand so we can keep the name of the product the same as it has been for the last 20+ years.  We will always keep the prices as low as we can and of course have our discount and rewards. It will be taking us several weeks to get back up to speed.

 

Since the passing of kNutek founder Jim Larsen the new management has decided to take kNutek in a new direction.  This includes the following changes;

New Name:   LIV by  kNutek

New product names & Prices

(We have not received a complete list yet)

Old Name                           New Name               Old Price                New Price

A-Ro Balsam                       Edel Drape                  1oz $39                  2oz $85

100% Oxygen Plasma         Elsket                          1oz $99                  2oz $199

Omega Peel                        Ny                               2oz $38.95             2oz $85

Whipped Oxygen Cream    Luft                             4oz $38.95             4oz $79  2oz $45.00

Photoshopped                   Du                               1oz  $32.95             2oz $99

Micodermabrasion            Glatt                             2oz  $38.95            $49.00

Price Increase Sept 1st 2018

Update 09/03/2018:   The above 6 products are the only products LIV by kNutek will be producing at this time.

 

This is an incomplete list as we get more information we will update this list.

We are still evaluating these changes as to the impact is has on our business model as to if we will be able to move forward with LIV Products.

As you see the retail prices for some item only increases a little but as for others i.e. Whipped Oxygen Cream This has a dramatic price increase , This is due to the fact that kNutek had been private labeling this product for us so we were able to keep the cost down last time they raised their prices, They are no longer private labeling.

But one of the biggest changes is in our wholesale cost, This has gone up so much that if we do continue selling these product they would have to be excluded from our Online discounts, promotions and rewards.

We would love to hear your feedback  (Be Nice) you can contact us here

This is very disappointing for us here at Skin Care By Suzie, We have always appreciated our close working relationship with kNutek for over 20 years

Thank you for your understanding
