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.
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.
How to get rid of black heads is a question often asked in the facial room at Red Lotus Skin Care in Beaverton, Oregon.Read Now
The best way to be black head free is exfoliation and just the right acid to loosen the sticky build up that makes a black head. Chemical peels are great for many reasons and black heads are one of them . They are kind of like a "reboot" for your skin because they let the new, beautiful skin show! What exactly is a blackhead? A blackhead is a clogged pore, they are called black heads because the exposed comedo is usually dark in color. The blackhead is open and exposed to the air and this causes it to turn dark in color. The reason these show up is because the sebum, our skin's natural oil, gets overly produced and clogs the hair follicles as it mixes with dead skin cells. Chemical peel removes layers of dead skin taking those black heads with it. With chemical peels and proper home-care, we can keep the blackheads away! The glycolic and salycilic acids in the peels and skincare products help keep them away.
Dry Skin is something that everyone usually deals with at least once in their lives but when it is a constant issue, what can the solution be? Jessica, an esthetician at Red Lotus Skin Care Salon in Portland, OR, deals with dry skin every day that flakes, and peels.... Her remedy? Chemical peels. ( Say what???) Now, you're probably thinking: why would i get a chemical peel if my skin is already peeling? Well, the chemical peel gets all that dead skin off of your face revealing your beautiful, smooth complexion underneath. Chemical peels also remove built up layers so your skin can actually absorb the products you're putting on it easier.Another factor for dry skin issues can sometimes be things we do without even realizing. We can be using a cleanser or soap that is too harsh or maybe we are taking too hot of showers. Hot water strips our skin of it's natural oil barrier. That does not mean you cannot enjoy a warm shower, just make sure you are only staying in for 5-10 minutes.
Another key solution to improve anybody's skin is to drink water! Water is not only good for our insides, but our outsides as well! Being dehydrated keeps your tissues and organs from getting the nutrients they need, leaving your skin parched. An adequate amount of water for a male is about 13 cups and for a woman about 9 cups.
"I am asked this type of question often and I love to show just how well facial exercises work," says Master Esthetician Patricia Barnett at Red Lotus at 13765 NW Cornell Rd, Portland Oregon. "Facial muscles are like any other muscle on the body and if you work your muscles out they will stay tight and firm. Sagging jowls and double chins are the most common and first to get negative attention. I like to practice face exercises in the car or making the bed, any down time will do with result in just two week and there free. I have shared a video example of a gal that teaches a couple of exercise sets I like especially for double or sagging chins."

The process of clearing mild types of extra pigmentation from causes such as birth control pills, too much sun, or acne spots is really quite easy if you catch it early. At Red Lotus Skin Salon we try to catch it in a person's twenties, pigmentation can be lightened with a few light chemical peels and the right products for home care can change everything. When it becomes more difficult to treat is after years and years of neglect and the lack of sun protection just makes matters worse. Many clients complain that their pigment marks really make them look older and even like they have dirt on their face. "I had upper lip browning and high cheek bone pigment patches or brown spots from years of lip waxing and the birth control pill. I love to garden and was living in the sun belt at the time. I was quite shocked by this ugly development around 28 years old, but had a great teacher from Rhonda Allison who showed me how to remove them in just 4 months. I did peels every three weeks and used the right home care and kissed sun bathing without a hat good bye. I loved my result and do not where any makeup at all. My clients are always amazed. " Says Patricia Master Esthetician at Red Lotus Skin Peels and Lash Extensions.
