WHY ARE OILS AWESOME?

  • Oils Contain Potent Antioxidants – Oils such as Marula contain high levels of Vitamin E and other antioxidants helping to fight free radical damage and skin aging.
  • Oils Can be Anti-Inflammatory – Triterpenoids and phytosterols in oils have anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Oils Plump the Skin – Because of their fast absorption, skin is left soft and supple.
  • Oils Increase Absorption of your Actives – Oils carry active ingredients (such as vitamin C) deeper into your skin, they also reduce surface irritation that these actives can cause.
  • Oils Protect the Skin – Oils defend the skin’s Acid Mantle, rebuild and sustain the skin’s lipid barrier, and speed up healing.

Here are the star ingredients for the Super Seed Oil

  • Grapeseed Oil-fights inflammation, reduces itching and  improves skin elasticity.

HOW TO USE FACE OILS

Using your face oils properly will ensure they last a long time and you don’t get a greasy finish.

You only need to use a few drops of oil at a time. Here are a few tips on using your facial oil:

  • Use a couple drops of oil mixed into your moisturizer.
  • Use a couple drops and apply to a damp face.
  • Mix a couple drops of oil into your facial toner and apply them both.
  • Make a micro-emulsion. Mix a couple drops of facial oil with a couple drops of your water-based serum, mix the two together on your hands and apply to your face.

Time for Peels is Now!

Posted by:

Cindy O’Brien Aesthetics is ready to peel you a grape! Not really…even though, we do that here in the Napa Valley!  I am ready to give you a gentle peel and reveal your most beautiful skin possible.

I use PCA Peels because they are the gold standard in the industry.  They have clean, nontoxic ingredients that are effective, but not aggressive.  That is old school and we have found that aggressive peels actually increases the possiblity of age spots (hyperpigmentation), white spots (hypopigmentation) and can damage the inner workings of the upper and lower layers of skin (the epidermis and dermis), causing accelerated aging of the skin.  Not what we want, right?  Therefore, I customize your peels by considering your lifestyle, health and commitment to the process.  Try the PCA Ultra I or the Sensi Peel for the luminous glow your need post holidays and before the spring arrives, when sun is starting to intensify. These peels are specially formulated to treat dehydrated, maturing skin, Ultra Peel® I is also appropriate for many other skin types, conditions and sensitivities. It will help treat pigment disorders, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin and acne. This treatment is especially ideal for sensitive skin, as it produces only a mild tingling sensation. Mild to moderate exfoliation will be experienced, depending on the number of layers applied.
Overall, the final result will be plump, hydrated and luminous skin.

Key Ingredients
Lactic Acid
Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA)
Azelaic Acid
Kojic Acid
L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)

Recommendation is three peels, spaced out every three weeks.  Cindy O’Brien Aesthetics is offering a Special Package of three for $325, if purchased in full for the month of February.  Regular peels are $125 each, still a great price for an incredible glow!  Try one today by contacting me at 707-337-4766 or cindymerrillskincare@gmail.com
