Wash face TWICE per day for OPTIMUM skin health





WASH your face! Morning and night....ESPECIALLY at night before bed. Wearing makeup to bed is epidermal suicide! Think of your skin as a s screen door. Dirt, makeup, environmentl elements, sebum (oil) and BACTERIA build-up onto your skin throughout the day;  it MUST be removed for optimum skin health (and to prevent break-outs). What happens to a screen when the holes are blocked? Oxygen and water are unable to penetrate.  The same theory applis with your follicles: thenskin needs to breathe people! Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize TWICE per day and exfoliate 2-3x week. 

Toning gets skin to the acidic pH level it NEEDS to be (5.5 is the number you want). If you have oily skin guess what, you need to moisturize as well, just use one that's oil-free.

Tea Tree Oil: Cure-all for many skin conditions



Tea Tree Oil is a staple that's should live in everyone's medicine cabinet. It's a versatile cure-all for ailments like mild acne legions, psoriasis and even head lice (I like to add it to a mild cleanser to clean my makeup brushes due to its anti-bacterial properties). This sustainable oil comes from the leaves of the "Melaleuca" tree (native to Australia) and has a distinctive camphor-like scent aside from being anti-bacterial, it also has natural anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory properties....not too shabby!

It's important to note that like any essential oil, Tea Tree may cause irritation to the skin, so before you use it, test an inconspicuous part of the skin to gauge any reaction.

For acne, place a dab of Tea Tree as a spot treatment for stubborn blemishes. It has been known to also treat athletes foot, nail fungus, dandruff and even cradle cap (consult with your pediatrician first before using on a child). Rather than apply it directly to the skin, I would recommend adding it to a carrier-product. For example: for dandruff, add a few teaspoons of Tea Tree to your shampoo, for athletes foot, or nail fungus, mix it with Aquafor. It also works amazingly well as a lice "preventative" (if you have school-age children). Add 1/3 of the tiny bottle of Tea Tree into a bottle of detangling spray, shake well, and spritz into your child's hair everyday.  A few drops of Tea Tree can also be added to your favorite shampoo, once or twice per week, not only to treat dandruff but to create an effective clarifier. This oil is TOXIC if ingested, however, so make sure you keep it away from small children or animals. 

I would not classify Tea Tree oil as gentle, as mentioned it can indeed irritate the skin. Therefore, I urge you to test a patch of skin, prior to use, to test for a any skin reaction. Tea Tree can cause a severe rash for those with sensitivity and may exacerbate the symptoms of eczema, so consult with your Board Certified Dermatologist first if you suffer from eczema or psoriasis  If you start having any reactions to Tea Tree oil, stop using it immediately. Otherwise, enjoy the multitude of topical uses for one of my favorite oils.

A long bob with ombré highs and lows looks fresh and fabulous. The key is in the layers, as well as color placement. But please do not attempt to manipulate this color on your own head ladies! Consult with your hair-care professional 😍

Take Care of Your Décolleté



A woman's décolletage is one of her most alluring, most beautiful assets. TAKE CARE of yours with chemical exfoliation (an alpha Hydroxy wash) 2-3x per week, daily hydration using quality serums & creams, and SUNSCREEN. 

If your cup size is larger than a B, consider sleeping in a shelf-tank. It will support you whilst you sleep, reducing cleavage wrinkling. 


Beauty Tip: after applying your eye cream or facial serum, add a dab of each to your cleavage. This skin is vulnerable, especially if you are a C- cup or larger. Treat the skin between your breasts as you would the delucate skin your under eye.

Rejuvinate those HANDS!





You can never hide your age from the neck, décolleté and HANDS....they never lie, NEVER. For HAND REJUVENATION, Dr Rosa Mena of "Ultima Med Spa", in Miami, suggests "IPL or Fraxel" laser therapy for hand SPOTS, and "Radiesse" to plump-up hollowed, aged hands. Spots on the hands, as well as veiny, hollowed backs, are an inevitable tell-tale sign of aging. A semi-permanent injectable like Radiesse is used to plump-up cheeks, nasal labial folds and marionette lines, but work fabulously on the backs of HANDS as well (to fill-in the sunken gaps).

Radiesse is calcium based so it has more volume and is more dense than Hyaluronic Acid fillers like "Juviderm".  Radiesse can last up to 14-16 months and stimulates collagen production due to the depth of it's insertion. Procedures like these require a skilled medical hand, however, so never respond to "group deals" and only visit a recommended doctor when shopping for injectable procedures. It's incredibly comforting to know that women, and men alike, can age gracefully with the help of premier Med Spas like Ultima, or a trusted Dermatologist like Dr. Javier Flores, Miami.  

I've been personally going to Dr. Mena for years and can say she's THE BEST when it comes to medical-cosmetic procedures like injectables and laser therapy.  Procedures like these don't come cheap however, but the life-changing affects on body image can be priceless. But it's NOT all about injectables alone. Maintain a consistent skin-care routine for your hands, which includes exfoliation, hydration, and (most importantly) SUNSCREEN, broad spectrum SPF 30 is preferred.

Beautiful Skin Requires Oxygen and Acid





Make-up DOESN'T cause breakouts.  Eating greasy foods does NOT cause breakouts......It's your skin-care regime that will PREVENT breakouts from occurring in the first place. "CTM" (cleanse tone moisturize) twice per day, morning and night. Then exfoliate 2-3 times per week with either an *acid or a granular exfoliator (I'm partial to acid exfoliators, particularly Alpha or Beta Hydroxy acids).  The key to beautiful skin is clean skin, but "clean" doesn't end with soap and water. The key to beautiful skin lies with the dynamic-duo of oxygen and acid. You must encourage oxygen to penetrate the hair follicles in order to keep skin fit, that is why exfoliation is essential. Exfoliation encourages cell turn-over and flush out impacted follicles. Acne and bacteria are anaerobic and cannot survive in oxygen, but oxygen isn't the only factor; healthy skin is acidic as well (5.5 on the pH scale is a skin-friendly place to be). To keep skin pH balanced and on the acid curve, you must tone immediately after cleansing; the primary job of a toner is to encourage acidity. 

Beauty Tip: To further prevent bacteria from setting camp on your skin, always dry the face with a tissue or cotton. Towels harbor bacteria that will negate a good skin-care regime. Unless the towel used is washed in bleach and laundered in between each facial washing, I recommend blotting the face dry with a tissue. This is the single most piece of skin care advice that I offer to my clients on a daily basis. Something as seemingly insignificant as "how we dry our face after washing", can make a major impact on the health of our skin.

1. Cleanse. 2. Dry with a tissue. 3.Tone. 4. Moisturize. It's a simple regime that can be life changing for those who struggle with keeping their skin on a healthy track. Clean, oxygenated, acidic skin will NEVER break out, so go ahead and eat your chocolate :)

Skin's elasticity is fleeting...Take care of your epidermis!



The skin is a miraculous organ....it has the ability to adapt to it's environment & heal itself. Without it, we could not survive, therefore, take good care of it. If you're pregnant or have recently lost a great deal of weight, you'll notice the changes in your skin. Keep it nourished and hydrated, applying dry oils twice per day...I luv pure Argan Oil, it's not cheap but it's high-quality nourishment for your precious epidermis. @josiemarancosmetics has a great one

Coco Chanel said it best....



“I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”  --Coco Chanel

Line Your Lash-Line with eyeSHADOW



Beauty Tip: For a soft shadowed affect on the lower lashes, line your lash-line with eyeSHADOW rather than liner (this creates a beautiful smokey affect). Eyeliner is perfect for the upper lid, however it can be too bold and harsh  for the bottom. Don't forget to blot your brush on a tissue first...you never want to apply shadow directly onto the skin upon loading your brush.

Glycolic Acid is GREAT for Keratosis Polaris


I'm thrilled to see a Skincare line which includes a Glycolic body wash, as well as body LOTION!! Alpha Hydroxy Acids, like Glycolic, are ESSENTIAL for cell turn-over on skin. Keratosis Polaris are those bumpy "chicken skin" patches we get, typically on the lower back or upper-arm region of the body. An easy way to slough away KP is with daily exfoliation. My favorite Med Spa ("Ultima") has a line of amazing Glycolics, including this body wash & lotion (so RARE to see a Glycolic lotion!!). A regime with products like these will keep your skin smooth, soft and hydrated.

Concealer Around the NOSE Hides Red Capillaries



Beauty Tip: 
Don't forget to add a dab of concealer or highlighting cream to the NOSTRILS! Highlighting this area (along with the upper lip, chin, bridge of nose and forehead) opens up the face. Most of us have unsightly RED CAPILLARIES which form around the nose & cheeks, known as "telangiectasia". This occurs when the tiny veins on the face dilate and break. Once broken, these veins will NEVER repair themselves again, resulting in a multitude of unwanted red lines. What causes this to happen? Washing face too vigorously, washing face w water that is too hot. Excessive unprotected exposure to the sun or repetitive nose-blowing, are just a few reasons. Consult with your dermatologist regarding laser therapy, if this is an issue you'd like to address. In the mean time, concealer works like a charm!

A METALLIC smokey eye is dramatic & unexpected



A smokey eye is timeless, but try something new: a metallic smokey eye rather than the classic matte finish is unexpected yet oh-so-dramatic! Be sure to add a dab of a light shimmery color in the tear duct area for contrast.

COCONUT OIL makes an über-Rich Hair Conditioner


I'm a huge fan of coconut oil. I use it as base for my sugar or salt body scrubs, it makes an excellent cuticle-elbow-heel conditioner, I use it on my arms and legs before adding body bronzer, and it works as a fantastic deep conditioner for dry, damaged, lackluster hair as well.
For an easy at-home hair conditioning treatment, combine 1 TBSP "Virgin" coconut oil, 1 tsp of Honey and a tsp of any of the following oils:



Pomegranate Seed Oil for FINE hair,  Almond Oil for WAVY hair, Avocado Oil for COURSE hair or Olive Oil for THICK hair.

Massage the oil mixture into DAMP hair, concentrate on the ends and comb through. For extra conditioning power, heat the oil in the micowave or on the stove top to about 120 degrees. Tie hair up into a bun and leave the conditioning oil in for 20-30 minutes. For uber-damaged, dry hair, wrap the hair in plastic wrap, cover with a shower cap and marinate the hair over night. Shampoo and condition in the morning as normal. Coconut Oil has a molecule which is smaller than that of other oils, allowing it to penetrate the hair shaft deeper. If you're left with an oily residue upon washing, simply add a teaspoon of baking soda to your shampoo...the soda is an excellent clarifier., just make sure you condition your hair (with your favorite conditioner) afterwards.

A hair-care regime like this can be applied as often as you need. Coconut Oil is amazingly versatile! With so many uses, it's probably my favorite beauty product.

Lashes: One of the 4 Essential Elements of Harmonic Beauty



Do you want to look impossibly balanced? If your answer is yes, then you need to understand that ESTHETIC balance isn't about makeup, it's about HAIR. Eyebrows, Head-Hair, Facial Hair (such as upper lip fuzz...get rid of it!), and LASHES, are all part of my 4 ESSENTIAL Elements of Harmonic Beauty theory. Assuming that your skin is up to par in terms of texture, it'll NEVER be about make-up or fashion. Esthetic harmony and balance are always about HAIR.

Like the eyebrows, eyelashes frame your face. If your lashes are sparse and thin, apply several strokes of a thickening mascara. Starting at the BASE of the lashes, wiggle your brush up to the tips. If you wiggle from the base, you'll get separate, well-coated, defined lashes. If the process of applying mascara is too much effort for your everyday routine, another lash option would be eyelash extensions or a lash-growth serum like Latisse. If a natural alternative is what you're looking for, the application of cold pressed castor oil, to the lash-line, stimulates hair growth as well. The oil should be massaged into the underlying skin, on a daily basis; the key with castor oil is patience and consistency. 

For more on hair growth and the esthetic importance of hair, check out my blog post, HAIR: The good, the bad and the not so ugly, for a detailed explanation on my 4 Elements theory.

REMOVE that makeup before bed!



Never EVER go to bed with out removing your makeup and WASHING your face...I don't care how tired you are!! Beautiful skin is CLEAN skin.  CTM, cleanse, tone and moisturize morning AND night. #RemoveYourMakeupAtNite #CTM #WashYourFace #KeepSkinClean #BeautifulSkin 

SLEEP is the MOST Important Beauty Ritual



If you're looking less-than-fresh these days, don't blame your lack of moisturizer. SLEEP is the number one, most important element in beauty (along with proper nutrition and water consumption). When you SLEEP, your skin repairs itself and works diligently to get your acid mantle in check (morning skin has the primo acidity level). Without enough sleep, no amount of exfoliation and serums will work as affectively as counting sheep for 8 hours. Having sleep issues? Go see someone about it! Your skin's health depends on it! #SleepCreatesBeautifulSkin #SleepForHealthySkin #SkinNeedsSleep #SleepRepairsSkin #HealthySkin #AcidMantle

SPF Saves Lives!




Ahhhhh, the Gods of summer have arrived! For me, summer's a time for righteous waves, warm sand and the sweet smell of Coppertone drifting through the air. Summer loves to flirt, and there is nothing I love more than the warm rays of the sun kissing my skin, tinting it a few beats darker than it was in Spring. As a teen growing up in New Jersey, summer was about driving down to Belmar shore and laying-out without a worry in the world. Those were the days of string bikinis and Johnson's baby oil, nothing more. I now live in South Florida where my shore is known as "the beach", and my skin protection has graduated to SPF 50, a big step forward from the basting oil I used to slather on my young skin back in the 80's. As a skin-care expert, I am acutely aware of long term skin damage, as well as the life threatening skin diseases caused by the sun's UVA/UVB rays. But it seems like no matter how many articles I write or blog posts I send out, the message hasn't transmitted to the sun worshipers of the world, so listen up!

WHATS SO SPECIAL ABOUT SKIN?
The skin is the largest organ of the human body; the LARGEST. The skin protects the body from pathogens which cause infection, it protects the body from bacteria, it assists in regulating our body temperature and it serves as our body's armor, protecting the internal organs from injury. The skin acts as a storage facility, safe guarding water and fat as needed, it produces vitamin D and it acts as a sensory vehicle (don't you just love to be caressed? Touch is an amazing sensation.). Skin also acts as a filter, assisting the body in excreting toxins. With all of these valid reasons to protect such a precious commodity, why is it that many of us place skin CARE on the back burner? Particularly skin care as it relates to sun protection.     



TRUST ME, YOU DON'T WANT CANCER
Cancer of the skin is by far the most common of all the cancers (yes, even more common than breast cancer); and Melanoma is the most dangerous of them all. Malignant Melanoma is the leading cause of death from ANY OTHER skin disease according to the American Cancer Society. Although it accounts for only 2% of skin cancer cases, it's responsible for the majority of skin cancer-related deaths in this country. There are two categories which distinguish skin caner: "Non-Melanoma" and "Melanoma". Basel cell and Squamous cell carcinoma would be classified under Non-Melanoma and Malignant Melanoma is the latter. 

BASEL CELL CARCINOMA
Non-Melanoma skin cancer is either Basal Cell or Squamous Cell. These two types are the most common form of skin cancers, with over 2,000,000 cases diagnosed in this country each year. 
Basel cell carcinoma develops in the lower epidermis, where round cells known as "basel cells" reside; 80% of skin cancer develops from the basel cells. Basel cell carcinoma is most often found on the forehead and neck region of the body (areas most vulnerable to the sun), but is not limited to these regions. It typically grows slowly and rarely metastasizes, but don't let that put you at ease. Although treatable to an extent, it usually requires surgical removal of the affected area resulting in scar tissue or a skin ulcer in most cases. 

SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA
The "squamous cells" are flat and scale-like, as opposed to the round basel cells. Squamous cells are where 20% of skin cancer develops and is primarily caused by sun exposure. The areas of the body which have mucus membranes are most vulnerable to this type of cancer, such as the mouth-skin and the nose. However, I have personally seen a wicked case of squamous cell carcinoma on the hands. Like basel cell, this type of cancer rarely metastasizes, however it is more likely to spread than basel. Non-melanomas (basel and squamous) can sometimes be treated with medicated doctor-prescribed creams, cryosurgery (which involves the actual freezing of the affected tissue) or even laser surgery. There are a few other types of rare, non-melanoma skin cancer, however, for the purpose of this article my focus is on the more common basel and squamous cell carcinomas.

MELANOMA
Melanoma, on the other hand, is the more serious type of skin cancer and this year it will invade the lives of about 76,000 people in our country, according to the American Cancer Society. It affects approximately 5% of people diagnosed with skin cancer, but is attributed to over 75% of all skin cancer-related deaths; 75 percent! Melanoma begins in the melanocytes which are, ironically, the cells which produce melanin. Why so ironic? Because it is the job of melanin to protect our skin from the sun, dispersing pigment onto the surface of the skin (AKA: a suntan). A suntan is actually an injury-response to sun exposure, in an effort to protect the skin from the sun's radiation. 

The majority of melanoma (as well as non-melanoma) cases in this country could have been avoided with simple act of applying sun protection. A broad spectrum SPF (minimum 30) that is 
RE-APPLIED throughout the day will protect your vulnerable skin from harmful radiation. If I can give any advice about skin-care in my realm of expertise, my message would emphatically be to PROTECT your precious skin with a BROAD SPECTRUM SPF (applied daily) and visit your dermatologist once per year for a thorough skin screening, especially if you notice any abnormal marks or legions on your skin. 


THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY WANTS YOU TO KNOW THE RISKS:
Risk factors for non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers include:
  • Unprotected and/or excessive exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation: sunlight, tanning booths and lamps.
  • Pale skin (easily sunburned, does not tan much or at all, natural red or blond hair)
  • Workplace exposure to coal tar, pitch, creosote, arsenic compounds, or radium
  • You or other members of your family have had skin cancers
  • Multiple or unusual moles
  • Severe sunburns in the past
MORE FROM THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY:
Skin cancer can be found early, and both doctors and patients play important roles in finding skin cancer. If you have any of these symptoms, see a doctor:
  • Any change on your skin, especially in the size or color of a mole, growth, or spot, or a new growth (even if it has no color)
  • Scaliness, oozing, bleeding, or a change in the way a bump or nodule looks
  • A sore that doesn’t heal
  • The spread of pigmentation (color) beyond its border, such as dark coloring that spreads past the edge of a mole or mark
  • A change in sensation, such as itchiness, tenderness, or pain

Rose's Skin Health-Tip: Don't neglect seemingly insignificant areas like between the toes, the ears or the backs of your knees. Inconspicuous areas like these are the first to show signs of skin damage that may result in cancerous cells. So take the time and spray, spritz, slick or slather on a quality paraben-free SPF on a daily basis. It may be the difference between a good skin day and a bad one.
