If you live in SW FL or any other hot and mild climate, then this article is for YOU!
How do you treat the skin when the climate changes and there is a ton of moisture and heat in the air?
There are a few things you will want to do:
1. EXFOLIATE MORE
That is correct! All the wetness that "sits" on top of the skin along with debris from the environment will actually "stick" to your skin's surface and even promote blockage of pores. This is more true of the thicker, oilier skins.
How do you exfoliate more?
You do this by using a facial brush (I sell them for only $4.25 each) with your cleanser every day. The amount of pressure used depends on the resilience (thickness) of your skin. The thicker your skin, the more pressure you will use.
Use a light to coarse physical scrub every day to every other day - use this as a 2nd cleanse - not in place of your actual cleanser.
Get your monthly peels done. Yes, MONTHLY. The more skin you remove, the more youthful, supple and healthier skin you will grow! There are all types of peels (light, medium and deep). If you aren't sure what peel to get, simply choose a light peel to start with. It is good practice to get a light peel, then a medium, then a deep and then cycle back around. Changing up your skin's treatments will keep it in "Tip-Top" shape!
2. GET BI-MONTHLY TREATMENTS
As mentioned above, you should be getting one peel per month and the 2nd treatment should be another treatment designed to repair/replenish the skin. I offer a VIP Program that significantly reduces the cost of treatments (including skin-chemical peels) as well as offer 15% off all Professional Retail at home.
A great rule of thumb for anyone receiving "corrective treatments" at the Spa, should have these three (3) items on hand at home:
1. Soothing Dermal Repair Mist (Epicuren)
2. Rebalance (PCA)
3. Clinicalm (PCA)
The above 3 items will eradicate any post redness/irritation.
WHAT DO I USE AT HOME?
It is vital to take care of your skin at home! PLEASE do NOT use over the counter products on your skin. There is absolutely NO reason to not be on professional skin care (especially when you have the option of receiving it at a 15% discount)! Why in the world would you get a professional treatment and use crap (yes, CRAP) on your skin? It is truly defeating the purpose. Yes, it makes a difference.
With that said, you want, at the very least, a cleanser, toner, scrub, corrective, builder and an spf at all times on your countertop. You will then want to consider having a few of each to alternate and even layer to improve the integrity of your skin.
A sample of home care for "normal" skin at home is:
Facial Wash (PCA)
Microderm (Epicuren) - this is amazing - leaves your skin baby smooth!
Gentle Exfoliant (PCA) - a milder scrub, great for post peels and removing flaking skin
Smoothing Toner (PCA)
Nutrient Toner (PCA)
Intensive Brightening Treatment (PCA)
C & E Strength (PCA)
Total Strength Serum (PCA)
Rejuvenating Serum (PCA)
Pro Collagen & Serum Amplifier (Epicuren)

At Skin Care By Jewls, I carry both PCA and Epicuren Professional Skin Care Lines for both back-bar treatments AND retail. They compliment each other very well. PCA is my "Peel" and "Corrective" line and Epicuren is my "Builder" and "Luxury" line.
