You know those hard bumps that appear on the back of your arms, thighs and your bum? Harmless, but irritating, these goose bump-like plugs often resemble acne and appear as dry, rough patches of skin.

Formally called keratosis pilaris, but commonly known as chicken skin, it can even appear as a red rash on your cheeks. The real question is what causes this annoying condition?

That answer is easy, excess build up of keratin in the hair follicles.

What’s not known is why. If you have a family history of atopic dermatitis, you are more likely to develop it.

But what can you do about it? Intensive moisturizing is key, even as much as several times a day initially. Look for moisturizers that contain urea. These tend to be more effective.

Consider topical retinoids to encourage the skin to turn over more quickly. We can help you there. Don’t forget humidifiers to increase moisture in your house, too.

Chicken skin is considered harmless by the medical profession, but we know it can be hard on your self-esteem. So take these simple steps to minimize its appearance and get your confidence soaring!

On the go? Got allergies or sensitivity to makeup? Or maybe you just want to save a few extra minutes in the morning…these are just some of the reasons women choose lash tinting over mascara.

Here are a few more:

• Allergic to mascara
• Avid swimmers, athletes, or outdoorsy
• Mascara runs and it’s embarrassing
• Want to look polished but not really into applying mascara
• Have light lashes and want to enhance eyes without mascara
• Have short lashes and want to define them

And that’s just a partial list! If you don’t wear mascara much but would love to have a more polished well-defined eye without the hassle, tinting is a good choice.

It only takes about 30 minutes and you’re back to enjoying your life. You won’t have to think about your eye “makeup” for 3-4 weeks.

But what exactly is lash tinting?

It’s an all vegetable dye, and that means irritation around your eyes is minimized. That’s why we love it! There are absolutely no harsh chemicals. However, because each person is different, we recommend a patch test 24-48 hours before your appointment, just to be sure.

Women also love the added benefit that lash tinting is waterproof. Unlike waterproof mascara, there isn’t even the slightest chance it will let you down!

There are also many different colors to choose from. So get creative if you like. Relax and enjoy the experience. You’re in good hands with our solid expertise.

“You don’t have sensitive skin,” the aesthetician said, “but your skin has become sensitized.”

And there’s a big difference between the two. Just like dry, oily, or combination skin, sensitive skin is something you’re born with. It doesn’t just happen.

Usually, sensitive skin people have fair complexions that flush easily or swell a bit to the touch. They may even get red or blotchy for no apparent reason.

That’s why skincare and make-up choices must be treated very carefully. Truly sensitive skin is experienced by a small number of the population.

Sensitized skin, on the other hand, is experienced by almost all of the population. Conditions such as low humidity, drying chlorine, harsh ingredients like benzoyl peroxide for acne, over-exfoliation, medications, and even aging, can cause a sudden reaction in your skin.

Avoiding the irritant, keeping the skin adequately hydrated, and using proper skincare for the season usually corrects the environmentally caused stress to your skin.

For truly sensitive skin, the cause is unknown. Each day is a trial and error strategy to keep skin happy and non-reactive.

Fortunately, we have skincare products designed to meet the challenges of both sensitive and sensitized skin. We can tailor what you need to your specific skin type.

If your skin is giving you attitude, calm it down with the right products and monthly facials to restore balance.
