SUNDAY RILEY-Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment
What are those tiny bumps? MILIA!
Our skin is quite complex, having various functions in order to maintain proper health. So many skin conditions can occur along the way, and some are more common than you may think. Milia affects more than 3 million people every year in the US (Mayo Clinic) causing many people to seek help from dermatologists and other resources. So, what is milia and how can we treat or prevent it? ☆What is it? Milia are small cysts that commonly occur on the face, but can also form on the body. The small, white cysts form due to keratin becoming trapped under the skin and clogging the pore. They are harmless, but can become quite the pest as they feel hard and often are seen in multiples throughout the face. It can happen to anyone of any age but is especially common in babies. ☆How to Treat and Prevent- Milia can present itself in adults due to skin damage or abrasion, as well as a build up of dead skin. Without the natural exfoliation process, a milia bump can form. In order to help prevent milia you want to ensure the skin is being exfoliated properly. Using a gentle AHA or BHA can keep the pores from clogging. This is also helpful for existing milia to rid of them faster! Two gentle options for all skin types: THE inkey LIST - Beta Hydroxy Acid CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum Milia can also form due to heavy or comedogenic creams. Coconut oil is an example of a pore clogging ingredient that can definitely cause milia if left sitting on the skin. When seen under the eyes, you may think the culprit is your daily eye cream. The skin around the eyes is very thin and sensitive. Ensure that you are also cleansing the area close to the eyes and keeping it clean. Most eye creams will not cause issues due to their special formulation, but opt for a lighter version if necessary. Treating milia is quite the tricky task. As an esthetician, I am trained in extracting all pimples and bumps on the skin. I can say that milia are quite difficult to get out correctly! Because there is no opening to the cyst, like a regular pimple would have, the extraction process requires creating a small opening to pop out the small cyst. This is best left to professionals! At home care requires daily cleansing and twice weekly exfoliation, and they can often come out on their own. As far as removal goes, put down the extractors and see a licensed esthetician or dermatologist to keep the skin protected. Have you ever experienced milia??🤔

Comment any skincare question for our Instagram Live on 9/28 @ 9AM PST (IG: @doctorly) 🔲 Giveaway Prize: CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser I absolutely love this product and use it every single day. As someone with combination skin, it's not overly drying but you still feel clean after using it. It also doubles as a make-up or sunscreen remover. You can use this as the first step in your morning and evening routine. VICHY - LiftActiv Specialist Peptide-C Anti-Aging Ampoules Vichy really did it with this one. This contains 10% L-ascorbic acid, the best-studied form of vitamin C. It also contains hyaluronic acid and peptides. It serves as an amazing anti-oxidant and will brighten the skin and build collagen over time. Use this in the AM after cleansing. elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 You all know this is one of my favorite products of all time. It goes on without a white cast and contains niacinamide, which is amazing for acne and rosacea-prone skin. CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum Retinoids are the cornerstone of my skincare routine. They have anti-aging and anti-acne benefits. They fade dark spots and improve skin texture. This product by ceraVe is a perfect starter retinoid because it contains an encapsulated form of retinoid and licorice, which helps to calm down inflammation and fade hyperpigmentation. Use this at night after cleansing. Avoid this if pregnant or breastfeeding! SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment This is one of the best exfoliants on the market. It contains lactic acid, one of the most gentle and effective alpha-hydroxy acids you can use in your skincare routine. It also contains licorice, which helps to fade dark spots and calm redness. This is best used 1-2x a week at night. Avoid using it on the same nights as your retinol. This product does contain lemongrass oil, which can cause irritation or allergy in a very small group of people (<1%). Always make sure to patch test. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Ultra Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin This is a gentle, non-greasy moisturizer that's great for all skin types. The bottle is hermetically sealed to prevent air from getting it, which allows the moisturize to be produced with no preservatives. It's also fragrance-free. One of the best moisturizers money can buy if you have sensitive skin. This can be used twice a day. Giveaway Rules: Ends 9/28/2020 at 11:59 PM PST. Shipping within the USA and Canada only. Giveaway winners will be picked by cherie. #CheriePartner
SUNDAY RILEY-Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment
New and Improved Winter Routine
After a lot of trial and error, I think I’ve found a routine that works for me (at least for the time being). I am aware of the PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+controversy BUT I work from home and often don’t run errands until the evening when the sun has already set so I don’t mind continuing to use the product as a moisturizer and for light protection from the minimal rays that come in through my windows. When I do go out during the day, I layer with a second sunscreen. I really love the Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser but have been feeling slightly stripped lately after using it and since I was already running out of the Krave, I figured I’d try something new. I purchased the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser on somewhat of a whim at Sephora the other day. I have noticed that the creamier texture of the FAB cleanser works very well for my skin (at least during the winter months when I get incredibly dry) but kind of feel like the pearlescent look of it is a little gimmicky. I will likely alternate between the 2 cleansers depending on the time of year and how my skin is feeling. I alternate actives every night. My skin is extremely reactive and prone to irritation so I have to take things very slowly when introducing a new active to my routine. For now, I use the CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum on night 1, the By Wishtrend - Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water on night 2, the DIFFERIN - 0.1% Adapalene Acne Treatment Gel Pump on night 3 and no active on night 4 before restarting the routine. I find that the night off really gives my skin a break. I’ve been using Differin for a while but have been a little disappointed in it lately so thought that it might be time to introduce a different retinol product and LOVE the CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum so far. I started with once a week and did notice a little irritation the first few times I used it but that was expected. I think every 4th night is a good place that I can build on if I continue to see better results. I want to incorporate The Inkey List’s Q-10 serum because I have used it in the past and really liked it. I’m not sure where I could include it for the best results and least irritation. I really want to keep at least one night a week where I only use FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner and Aveeno - Calm + Restore Oat Gel Moisturizer after cleansing but am hesitant to layer products. Any suggestions? THIS MOISTURIZER!!! I was skeptical when I first saw this new line from Aveeno because I sometimes find that their products don’t perform as well as I expect. Their lotions often feel like they just sit on top of my skin instead of soaking in but Dr. Dray convinced me and I will be sticking with this one!
DIFFERIN-0.1% Adapalene Acne Treatment Gel Pump
Cerave Resurfacing Retinol serum
I have suffered with acne all through my teenage. Now I am in my late twenties and still get a pimple occasionally. Most of the times the pimple leaves post acne uglies (scars, hyperpigmentation, boxed and rolling scars) I have not given much thought to it until I had a deep scar due a pimple. I panicked and started using vit C serums, AHA,BHA, Glycolic acid,Lactic acid, niacinamide etc. During my research I found out that retinol products help with the skin texture, scars and acne. I wanted to start with a low concentration retinol and then I came upon CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum I started using it 1.5 months ago. The bottle comes with a pump, so easy to use the product. I have a combination skin and did not notice any purging due the product. I started applying it daily at night after washing my face and followup with a night moisturizer. After 3 days of usage I noticed redness and burning sensation after applying the cream and it subcides after 5 minutes. Now after 1.5 months of usage I still have occasional burning feeling after applying the cream. The skin still peels and I have just started to see the differences. The changes are not major but I can definitely feel a difference in the texture of my skin. No changes with the deep boxed and rolling scars. The scar pigmentation has improved but by a really tiny amount. I will continue to use it till the first bottle is completed and see if I can find any major changes.

👆If I Could Only Use One Product
Retinoids, whether over the counter as retinol or as a prescription as tretinoin is highly recommended by so many dermatologists. Whether it’s acne, fine lines, or hyperpigmentation you’re battling, it’s the 1 product to take with you on a deserted island! (Along with sunscreen, obviously) So what does it do? It increases cell turn over, allowing new cells to grow faster to replace old ones. It also works at a deeper level than an exfoliant (AHA/BHA). They prevent the breakdown of collagen and thicken the deeper layer of the skin where wrinkles starts. What’s the difference of OTC retinols and RX retinoids such as tretinoin? OTC retinols are much gentler, whilst prescription retinoids are an active form of vitamin A, with different strengths depending on your needs. You typically have to work your way up to higher percentages. 💁🏻♀️ I am loving DERMATICA. It’s an online dermatology service and based on your concerns and full on unretouched, unfiltered photos of your skin, you will receive an RX formula delivered every month. In my case, i get .025% tretinoin with 4% hydroquinone because I have some sun damage. But your formulation really depends on your skin. It’s very reasonable, $5 the first month and around $25/month. Your prescription will also change as your skin adapts Irritation is definitely part of the package here. Start with the lowest percentage, and you can moisturize first, then moisturize again after Important to keep in mind that retinols, whether over the counter or prescription is not a quick fix. Patience is key here!!! This is for long term use ✨Totally worth a shot!!! Good over the counter retinols to try if you’re not ready to go with prescription strength: CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum Neutrogena - Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum
