A new year brings renewed energy to accomplish your goals. A good way to start with your New Year’s Healthy Skin Resolution is to first discard your bad habits. This means protecting your skin from any further damage by avoiding sun exposure, tanning beds, and harsh, ineffective skin care products.
Once you have resolved to rid yourself of the bad habits, you can then take on your new, healthy skin habits, which include drinking lots of water, using antioxidants and broad-spectrum sunscreens every day and adopting a new, proven, Advanced Skin Care Program.
The Obagi Nu-Derm Advanced Skin Care System is designed to restore health to sun and smoke damaged skin, as well as even out pigmentary problems involving the face and other areas of the body. The Obagi NuDerm System corrects surface discoloration and blemishes. It also penetrates into the skin to stimulate skin cell renewal, improve circulation and help rebuild collagen. The normal barrier function of the skin is restored, making the skin less sensitive and better able to hydrate properly.
No Blush or Makeup Necessary with Obagi Nu-Derm Skincare Products
Within weeks of using the Obagi NuDerm System, you will have the formation of the new blood vessels showing through the skin will cause the skin to have a rosy appearance. You will also have a thickening of the collagen layer, which will result in a loss of some of the fine wrinkles. As an added bonus, you will not need to use makeup or blush.
Before (left photo): Hyperpigmentation of nose, upper lip and above eyebrows. After (right photo): A rosy radiant glow after 10 week follow-up of Obagi Nu-Derm products. Patient without make-up.
The Importance of Sunscreens Approved by a Dermatologist
As with all advanced skin care systems, use of a broad spectrum sunscreens is an essential final step. It is important to note that not all sunscreens are created equal. In fact, most do not block long UVA radiation. The term “broad spectrum,” a term used liberally to describe sunscreen, actually means very little. The FDA is drafting more relevant labeling laws, but these will not be in effect for several years. The labeled SPF number is a measure of protection against UVB and only some short UVA, but not long UVA. These long UVA rays are now known to cause photo-aging and are likely to be involved in the more aggressive skin cancers, such as melanoma. The sunscreens that we sell on Skincare-MD.com already exceed the American Academy of Dermatology’s recommendations to the FDA in regard to criteria for Broad Spectrum Labeling.

All of you who have been using the C6 Peptide from Kinerase will love the
Kinerase Pro Therapy C8 Peptide with Kinetin and Zeatin. The product’ anti-aging ingredients really make a noticeable improvement in your skin. Like all of the Pro Therapy products, C8 Peptide also has Kinetin and Zeatin, both physician exclusive ingredients and only available in this line of products by Kinerase. These are both great anti-aging ingredients and combined with the other ingredients make C8 Peptide a really great product. This fabulous formulation will help rejuvenate your skin!
Improve the visible appearance of:
- Age-related fine lines & wrinkles
- Sun Damage
The C stands for Vitamin C, in this case an upgraded stabilized Vitamin C which is a proven natural lightener and collagen booster. Vitamin C can help even skin tone while it fills in the look of fine lines. Kinetin is a powerful antioxidant that also helps improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Zeatin helps to slow down the natural aging process and helps improve the more severe signs of aging like hyperpigmentation and skin roughness.
The “8” in Kinerase Pro Therapy C8 Peptide with Kinetin and Zeatin refers to the 8 amino acids in the Kinerase SNAP-8 formula. This is a revolutionary Botillum-Toxin inspired neuropeptide that reduces the depth and appearance of wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions.
SNAP-8 can reduce the depth and appearance of wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions by a dramatic 34.9%.
Another ingredient, BetaGlucan, stimulates the skin’s natural immune response while promoting skin regeneration. It is commonly known for its moisturizingand wound healing properties and now there is evidence that it can also aid in skin rejuvenation, hydration, renewal and healing. It can help to improve firmness and promote collagen production. Beta Glucan feeds the Langerhans cells in our skin which are the cells that help destroy the bad things (damage from the sun, smoke, chemicals in our soaps and makeup, environmental pollution, etc.) that make our skin look aged. BetaGlucan has the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin to invigorate these cells helping them to renew and heal and also release substances that boost the immune system.
Green Tea Eco is another powerful antioxidant that can help diminish fine lines and wrinkles, reduce large pores, minimize irritation and can aid in healing. The Vitamin E and Retinyl Pamitate (a Vitamin A derivative) are also great antioxidants and both have anti-aging benefits. This is just such a great product. I use this product daily and like the new formula, it is also a white cream (C6 Petide cream was yellow). I don’t use a moisturizer with it because my skin tends to be oily. I do use my sunscreen.
Try C8 Peptide for noticeably younger looking skin
in just 8 weeks!
All of the Kinerase Pro Therapy products are well tolerated by people with sensitive skin, they can be used after procedures and even rosacea patients can use the Pro Therapy line.

The word ATOPY is derived from the Greek word which means unusual, uncommon. The word atopic denotes a form of allergy in which a hypersensitivity reaction such as dermatitis or asthma may occur in a part of the body not in contact with the allergen.
Atopic dermatitis, also known as atopic eczema, is an atopic, hereditary and non-contagious skin disease characterized by chronic inflammation of the skin. Atopic dermatitis skin reacts abnormally and easily to irritants, food, and environmental allergens and becomes red, flaky and very itchy. It also becomes vulnerable to surface infections caused by bacteria. The skin on the curved surfaces of the joints (for example inner sides of elbows and knees) are the most commonly affected areas. This universal skin disorder usually manifests in infants 1-6 months old, and 60% of patients experience first flare-up by age of 1. Children with asthma and hay fever have a 30-50% incidence of developing atopic dermatitis.

Chapped lips come with the change in the weather. The big snowstorm on Halloween this year melted pretty quickly and left us with unseasonably warm temperatures up until now. Today, temperatures are more like winter. My lips are already feeling dehydrated and dry. The air in the winter is dryer, there always seems to be a breeze, add the sun and you have the perfect conditions for chapped lips. The air inside your home tends to be less humid too.
Your lips may be dry, they may crack even split and peel in the winter. Your first response is to lick your lips. This only causes more drying because the acids in your saliva help to dry your lips even more. Resist biting on your lips to peel the peel because that will cause further damage and possibly bleeding. Your best bet is to keep your lips moisturized and protected from the elements.
Products to Protect Your Lips
Skincare-MD carries a number of products that can help treat and protect your lips.
Avene Cold Cream Lip Cream was voted best lip conditioner by SELF Healthy Beauty in 2011. I love this product and carry it in my purse. Avene Cold Cream Lip Cream has nourishing properties and sucralfate (stimulates tissue repair). This product provides an invisible barrier against external aggressors. This is a good product to use if you are using acne products that might dry out your lips. This is a sheer product and comes in a tube. Use for severely chapped lips.
Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm is rich and creamy and leaves a protective coating on your lips. It is also formulated with sucralfate to maintain a healthy healing environment for dry chapped lips. It provides antioxicant protection and remains on your lips for up to 8 hours. This product comes in a stick. Use for moderate to dry, chapped lips.
Kinerase Ultimate Volume Lip Conditioner with SPF20 is another great product. Ultimate Volume Lip Conditioner visibly plumps and repairs signs of aging for noticeably smooth, full, glossy and youthful lips. It is deeply hydrating.
LipDrink Lip Balm by Jane Iredale has SPF15 and moisturizes and conditions with macadamia nut oil. It also contains green tea extract and vitamins E and C for antioxidant protection. You’ll notice that this feels more moist on your lips than the typical lip balm.
Donell Lip Saver is another favorite. Patients and customers purchase this product in multiples. It has an SPF15 and helps combat cracked, fissured lips and extreme dryness caused by the elements or by chemical treatments, as well as for patients that might use Accutane and experience extreme lip dryness. It can be used for cold sores and sun and fever blisters. It is a great conditioner for chapped and healthy lips! Have a cold, apply this to your raw, red nose.
Sunscreen in Your Lip Product is Recommended
Sunscreen is a great added benefit in a lip product. When you are outside, your lips are exposed to the elements, not only cold, wind, and dry air but also the sun. We recommend using a lip product with added SPF when possible. We had two people call this week with actinic keratosis on their upper lips, the most common form of pre-cancerous lesion. Protect yourselves with SPF.

The Obagi Nu-Derm Advanced Skin Care System is designed to restore health to sun and smoke damaged skin, as well as even out pigmentary problems involving the face and other areas of the body. The Obagi Nu-Derm system corrects surface discoloration and blemishes. It also penetrates into the skin to stimulate skin cell renewal, improve circulation and help rebuild collagen. The normal barrier function of the skin is restored, making the skin less sensitive and better able to hydrate properly.
Sun damaged skin often shows early wrinkling, areas of uneven pigmentation, and areas of scaling (actinic keratoses which are precursors of skin cancer). Hormonal changes from aging, contraceptives, and pregnancy can also cause brown spots. Many of these problems can be improved by using the Obagi Nu-Derm system.
The Obagi Nu-Derm System consists of a group of complementary products containing active ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids, hydroquinones and tretinoin. Alpha hydroxy acids (exfoliants) are incorporated into the Obagi Nu-Derm System (Exfoderm contains the gentler Phytic Acid for sensitive skin; Exfoderm Forte contains Glycolic Acid) to promote exfoliation (removal of the outer layer of dead cells) and better penetration of the products. This results in improved hydration of the skin, and more rapid turnover of cells resulting in rejuvenation of the skin. The hydroquinones (lightening creams) correct sun damage, brown spots, uneven pigmentation and will even out color tone. The tretinoin (anti-oxidant Vitamin A cream—brand name Retin-A cream) of the Obagi Nu-Derm System improves the deeper collagen layer, by restoring health and thickness to this layer. This results in smoother, firmer skin.
The Obagi Nu-Derm System is easy to use because the products are numbered 1-6 and an Obagi Nu-Derm “Personal Guide to Skin Health” (included with every Starter Kit) instructs which products are used in the AM and PM. The Obagi Nu-Derm Daily Regimen will also give you a step by step description and usage information.

Sixty million Americans suffer with acne according to the statistics. 85% of all American teenagers have acne, 20% of all adults have acne but only 11% are seeking treatment of their acne. I find that to be truly amazing. That means that there are still over 53 million people that don’t seek treatment. There are so many good products available for acne with pricing to fit most budgets. We can treat mild to moderate acne.

My Experience with Acne
I am in my 50’s and have acne. I am not alone. Diacneal by Avene is that product I swear by. I use the Avene Diacneal Soap-Free Gel Cleanser twice a day because it cleans really well and doesn’t dry out my skin. Every night I use Avene Diacneal Skincare Lotion with retinaldehyde which helps treat acne and helps minimize my outbreaks. The retinaldehyde (vitamin A) also provided anti-aging benefits and the glycolic provides exfoliation for a smooth complexion. I didn’t just try Diacneal and it worked. I tried many other products before this because I didn’t have the knowledge or understanding of acne products and their individual ingredients to choose properly. My son uses the Glytone Back Acne Spray with 2% salicylic acid to unclog pores and keep his back clear of blemishes. He says “it works” and that’s what is important. I now enjoy mostly acne free skin with just a minor breakout now and then. So much better than before and my skin is healthier.

We get a lot of calls from people who want a product that can help lighten the area under their eyes. “Do you have anything for dark circles?” Jan Marini Age Intervention Dark Circle Eye Defense uses a number of different ingredients to help minimize the look of dark circles under the eye area. It is a new generation dark circle product that is an improvement from older vitamin K products. It works to reduce the appearance of under eye circles and wrinkles through technologies directly targeted to treat each of the 5 primary causes of dark circles.
Primary Causes of Dark Under Eye Circles
- Blood leakage
- Iron discoloration
- Thin and fragile skin
Ingredients Help Jan Marini Age Intervention Dark Circle Eye Defense Provide Results
The ingredients in Jan Marini Age Intervention Dark Circle Eye Defense address all of the factors responsible for dark under eye circles. Chrysin has anti-inflammatory properties and stimulates enzymes that assist in the breakdown of blood (fragile blood vessels leak blood more easily causing discoloration). N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS) binds to the insoluble iron released from blood, making soluble and removable (iron contributes to discoloration as does sun damage). Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and cause the skin to become thicker (thin skin allows discoloration to be more visible). Microsponge Technology improves the penetration of the ingredients and the time released properties extends the time it will treat this condition. Studies showed that there was a 100% measurable improvement in wrinkles, texture, elasticity and pigmentation for patients who used this product once daily every evening.
60 Individual Capsules Provide 2 Month Treatment
Each jar provides a 2 month supply (60 encapsulated dosages). Just apply once a day in the evening. This product is time released which helps improve delivery and penetration of the product and duration of treatment for dramatically smoother, more hydrated and brighter eye area.
