Acne in your 30ies is not from chocolate but the products your not using. Mostly pores are clogged and stuck with debris, there is a rough build up on the skin and the texture can look dull and dry while you still feel greasy. At Red Lotus we teach about using cleansers with Glycolic acid, serums that contain ingredients that dissolve the clogged pores and build up like salicylic acid and ingredients that help repair the damage that the acne has caused. At Red Lotus in Portland, Oregon we specialize in adult acne and teaching you how to clear it for your specific skin type, preform light skin peels for acne, acne scars and large pores. Enjoy this video from Jan Marini on adult acne and come in and let us work with you about this specific issue.
Light skin peels of Glycolic an Salicylic acid are perfect to dissolve the stick oil and dirt that clogs your pores, we do these treatments at Red Lotus Skin Care Salon in Portland, Oregon. However, to prevent them using this in a daily serum with these ingredients, Bioclear by Jan Marini, breaks down the plugs daily and allows the skin to breath. By doing this the P. acnes bacteria is assisted to be kept in control preventing white heads. Sun block will keep you from getting dark marks from this process because the sun on an inflamed breakout will actually trigger skin to protect itself with melanin granules leaving a dark spot after acne is gone. Here is a great video of Jan Marini talking about acne prevention.
"First I must say that chemical peels for skin can clear acne in as little as 8 weeks, but the use of Benzoyl Peroxide is very effective at the prevention of new acne." Master Esthetician Patricia at Red Lotus Skin Care in Beaverton, talks about pimples and acne. "P acnes bacteria is found in our skin normally but if the skin can not get enough oxygen because of clogged pores with sebum (oil) and dead skin cells, the P acnes grows out of control and a pimple develops. A simple application nightly of Benzoyl will oxygenate skin and prevent the growth of this bacteria. A very important note to remember is skin become resistant to over the counter Benzoyl sold at 2.5% and only 5 to 10% will do the job consistently. My favorite is Jan Marini's Duality, a Retinol and Benzoyl combo that is really the best one product for acne combined.
We at Red Lotus Lash Extensions in Portland, Oregon highly recommend Jan Marini: Marini Lash. The reason we recommend this is because of the results you can see from the product. By using this, your natural eyelashes will grow and thicken providing a better base for your extensions and more healthy lashes to attach extensions to. The product contains peptides and lash conditioning ingredients to help promote healthier lashes. Marini Lash has been tested by ophthalmologists and dermatologists for safety. The differences between Marini Lash and Latisse are that Marini lash uses peptides instead prostaglandin analog which can be irritating and cause side effects. Marini Lash is also very inexpensive compared to other brands promising better eyelashes.
Ok....Let's talk about professional high quality skin care products vs organic skin care products. "I am often asked by clients which they should use," says Patricia Barnett master ethetician at Red Lotus skin care spa in Portland Oregon.
"I suggest both. Here's the scoop:
1) It is personal preference.
2) it is what you want to achieve.
3) It is how dedicated you are.
4) It is the health and temperament of your body.
For example one person may be fearful off all chemicals and believe every worry of possible fear out there, this person should honor that and stay natural and organic. However, the results of this decision will be limited. The ingredient changes that have advanced our industry like Jan Marini, who has medically proven skin care products with hours of research behind the product claims are sound. PCA or Rhonda Allison products who combine the latest science and plants to create dramatic changes in skin cannot be matched by any organic line alone. But, what is not discussed often is how to use both. If your a middle of the road person and want the best results, work with an esthetician who understands both. When is it appropriate to use exfoliators and corrective serums and when to feed the skin with raw food masks that the skin can actually cellularly understand and utilize. Skin loves fresh foods, cucumbers shredded as a mask, lemon juice massaged into clean skin or rich raw honey and avocado that you just blended into a paint able puree. You cant beat how amazing your skin will look but the results come after doing it every day for 20 minutes. Most of us do not have that time, that's why advanced formula like the companies I have suggested do so much with little time and effort in today busy world. Lemon juice can't take the place of Rentinol at 45 years old, but start that lemon juice every day when you're 12 and we may see that experiments results.
Consider having a shaded tattoo line added into your brow. Master esthetican Patricia at Red Lotus in Beaverton, Oregon talks about all the amazing advances in cosmetic tattoo artistry. "I sat in this last week with Judith Culp, an amazing tattoo artist at Red Lotus and listened to her consult with 7 people. Her description of proper pigment application, with the accuracy of an advanced hair color artist, fine tattoo stroke lines mimicking hair growth and how brows can be soft in color looking just like the shadow you paint in with makeup but with a tattoo. I was very impressed at the advances in cosmetic tattooing, finding it a much simpler solution than make up. Judith talked about how to correct a brow line to fit your face and she even talked a 20 year old"out of a brow tattoo" because of her age and style changes ahead for her. She did suggest a brow shaping lesson for her to come in next time and have. Judith talked about how when you get older you may loose your brow ends, do to hormone changes. I loved the pictures of her work and the brow tattoo can be so subtle and accentuating. Just think when the handsome delivery man comes to the door first thing, you look stunning not shocking.

Daily care is super important to not only have beautiful lashes but to keep the eyelid healthy as well. Jessica, the lash extension technician at Red Lotus in Beaverton, Oregon has some information on how to keep everything in good shape!
"Most people are afraid of cleansing their lashes or avoid them at all costs during the facial cleansing process. Well I am here to tell you that it is okay to get some cleanser on your extensions! We want to gently cleanse them at the root especially because there is a little space between the extension and the eyelid. So if we don't keep the area clean, makeup and dirt can work its way into that little space and when you go to get your fill, the extension will stick to the debris that is on the lash rather than the clean eyelash.Another thing that can happen is Blepharitis, which is flaky skin around the root of the lash and is caused by not cleaning the lashes thoroughly. Another thing is lash mites, which can happen, but normally happen to those with really poor hygiene so let's just not go there!
So now, how do i avoid all these bad things?! Cleaning!
Step 1. Splash eyes with water.
Step 2. Rub oil free cleanser or baby shampoo into your fingers, creating a light lather.
Step 3. Using your fingers, massage the product into the roots of your lashes. Using your ring finger and moving back and forth is a good technique.
Step 4. After cleansing well, splash eyes until all product is gone.
Step 5. Pat them dry by pressing once down with town on lashes and once up under lashes with towel, than gently brush into place with lash brush, allowing them to air dry the rest of the way.
Don't be concerned if there are a couple lashes in your sink! We lose anywhere from 1-5 lashes per day and it's better that the lashes are clean!
You can incorporate cleansing your lashes in your daily cleansing routine so it takes no extra time. It is also very important to remove all makeup every day to avoid any eye irritation. If you use mascara, ( don't recommend this) apply to the tips only! If you apply as you would with no extensions, the mascara can clump up at the root and become very difficult to remove. Do not use a waterproof formula, use a gentle one.
The non-surgical option of tattooing without reconstruction needs to be done by the most highly skilled color tattoo specialists in cosmetic tattooing. Judith Culp in the cosmetic tattoo artist at Red Lotus Skin Care, 13765 NW Cornell Rd Portland, Oregon 97229 is known for her quality permanent cosmetic work and devotion to clients who are wanting post-mastectomy areola recoloration.This allows color pigmentation to simulate the nipple areola without the contour of an actual nipple. It is quite amazing the shading that creates the subtle nipple contours and bumps. The reconstruction of the nipple areola helps to put the finishing touches on the new breast after a long journey in reconstruction. areola tattooing can be performed to recreate and match the natural color of the areola. This is an important procedure for women who have lost one or both nipples after cancer or mastectomy. Like breast reconstruction, the procedure can help women regain a sense of femininity.
