The reviews are in on Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum and it’s a good one. This nighttime anti-aging serum can be used with any moisturizer you already have in your skin care routine. Yes, it’s that flexible.
And that’s why Skin Care Heaven in Carlsbad decided to carry it.
Its peptides and oil promote collagen and does wonders for the skin. A youthful luminosity is the head-turning result for both mature and premature aging skin. Dermaologica calls its peptide serum as supercharged. While collagen is produced, the overall skin structure becomes firmer and better toned.
Although it has oils in its formula which encourages hydration, it is not the least bit greasy. The product is also color and artificial fragrance free which is great for sensitive skin types.
Users love the natural aroma of the argan and rose oils. These powerhouse ingredients lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This serum truly repairs the skin leaving it soft and supple.
Only 4 to 6 drops of serum at night is needed for these fantastic results. A little goes a long way. It can be applied directly on your face or you can add it to your evening moisturizer. Either way is fine.
Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum users are waking up to younger, silky smooth skin.

When thinking of a New Year’s Resolution one item on top of the list is better skin care. After all, who doesn’t want to look younger? Like many have discovered over time, New Year’s Resolutions may be easier said than done.
But if better skin care is the goal, then here is an easy-to-follow recipe to make it become a reality.
By the way, Skin Care Heaven in Carlsbad is great place to visit on the web because they offer all the products one needs to reveal more gorgeous skin.
Below are five great steps to achieve this resolution in the New Year.
Step 1: Sunscreen
Literally, sunscreen is one of the most important things to wear when outdoors. And yes, this even includes overcast days because ultra violet rays can still be harmful.
The number one reason for premature aging is the sun. Ultra violet rays is the culprit for fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, large pores, uneven skin tone, and zaps away youthful beauty. Sunscreen will slow down this aging process.
Sunscreen comes in array of choices for different skin types including those with acne prone skin. These days, sunscreen can be oil-free, silky and featherweight.
Tinted moisturizers, such as Revision, are fantastic because it provides wonderful hydration, offers a hint of color, and shields against harmful rays. It also fights signs of aging with its peptides which shrink pores.
Purchasing a broad spectrum sunscreen is always a wise skin care choice.
Step 2: Implement A Skin Care Regimen
Having a skin care routine in place is the key to beautiful skin. This regimen is done both morning and night. Above all, always remember to remove makeup at night before going to bed.
A good skin care regimen may include:
Implementing a sonic skin cleansing system is also a wonderful idea since it renews skin and gets it prepared for better product penetration.
Once a skin care routine is in place it becomes like second nature.
Step 3: Moisturize The Whole Body
Beautiful skin means head to toe luminosity. Especially in the summer and winter months, don’t forget to apply body lotion or body butter after bathing. Rub it on when skin is slightly damp for more hydration benefits.
An exfoliator, such as a sugar scrub, is a great addition to slough off dry skin. Doing this a couple times a week will keep skin soft, supple, and smooth.
Step 4: TLC For The Skin
Here are some other quick tips for the TLC skin care list:
Step 5: Eating Healthy
More than likely eating healthier is on the New Year’s Resolution list, too. A balanced and nutritious diet won’t only help shed off unwanted pounds but it will do wonders for the skin. The recommended dietary amount of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and water will leave skin more luminous.
Happy New Year!

How quick time flies. And once again, it’s time to focus on a “Year in Review,” and in this case, one that targets skincare health.
In 2011, DNA repair treatments really began to earn its worth. Critics did their research and found that there are scientific remedies out there which have some merit. It was a prestigious recognition for this company and for those who stand behind the science of DNA repair.
Skin Care Heaven’s serum restores damaged tissue and delays signs of aging. It delivers powerful enzymes and protective antioxidants to moisturize the skin while working hard with its DNA repair and recovery. What all this means it that the serum has the power to repair sun damaged skin while protecting it from future damage. Along with smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines it also fades sun spots.
While different manufacturers use their own DNA repair recipe, the Skin Care Heaven DNA Repair Serum formula use enzymes from plankton that rebuild damaged cells. Once it locates and removes injured tissue, it paves the way for new, healthy tissue to grow in its place.
This enzyme is an extract from Micrococcus luteus which is called Micrococcus lysate. Skin Care Heaven discovered that Micrococcus luteus was a phenomenal UV resistant enzyme which aimed at sun damaged DNA and its recovery.
This advanced technology is also coupled with antioxidants and caffeine.
The antioxidants inside this self-correcting serum are a combination of vitamins A, C, and E which mend damaged skin and protect it against future free radicals. And the caffeine component reduces redness and inflammation.
Being part of the revolutionary science behind DNA repair has been a thrill for Skin Care Heaven, and even more so, because they were recognized by a top tier media publication for their formula.

Here are some tips to get through the frosty season.
Although a hot bath or shower may seem like the perfect thing to do to warm up, it actually is a bad choice. Hot water can remove skin moisture especially during the wintertime. And every drop of moisture counts. So, the best temperature to keep it at is warm.
After a bath or shower, pat skin gently but leave it a bit damp for a body moisturizer application. Now remember, a body moisturizer is to never be used on the face or neck because it will be too harsh.
Body moisturizers can be found in:
A great product on the market with wonderful hydrating and nourishing properties is Pure Fiji. Their sublime fragrances range from coconut, pineapple, and more. Their formulas come in butters and lotions. For the wintertime, though, it’s a good idea to go with body butters.
When applying a moisturizer over the whole body, don’t forget to include the feet and toes. Those spots are in need of hydration, too.
Great ingredients in body moisturizers may include:
- Aloe Vera
Now, if extra dryness is noticed, it may be a good idea to exfoliate about once a week in between those moisturizing treatments. Again, Pure Fiji has a wonderful Coconut Sugar Rub.
Make certain the scrub chosen exfoliates gently. Look for essential oils and gentle extracts to nourish the skin. Exfoliating will get the skin prepared for better moisturizer penetration.
For the face, look for a product that not only hydrates but also offers antioxidant benefits to fight free radicals. Revaleskin Intense Recovery Treatment falls under this category because it does moisturize severely dry skin while offering it a boost of nourishment from its Coffee Berry ingredient.
Find peptide products that promote the stop of trans-epidermal water loss otherwise known as TEWL.
Other great facial formulas are:
Although this last tip is not a moisturizer it is well worth the mention. Find a hydrating facial mist to quench skin thirst any time of the day. Generally, these bottles are small and can fit easily into a handbag. Top formulas are myrrh, chamomile, olive leaf extract and grape seed extract.
With these wintertime tips, skin will have a host of possibilities for supple and soft skin even through chilliest of times.

Summers seem to fly by but what lingers are those new summer freckles you’ve collected while basking in the sun. Yes, sun exposure caused those little dots around your nose and cheeks that you probably want to see go away.
These freckles may be peppered around your face or formed in clusters. And if you are the bearer of fair skin you probably have more than someone with a darker tone.
Also known as sun spots, freckles are the direct result of skin damage. If you sported sleeveless tops and shorts over the warm months, more than likely, you’ll see blemishes on your shoulders and legs. And if you look close enough, brown little marks could be visible on the topside of your hands, too.
Another sought after treatment is a chemical peel. But before you schedule this appointment please make sure it’s done at a doctor’s office or medical spa. It’ll give you peace of mind knowing that your technician has the experience and talent it takes to work there.
When it comes to a topical, the best product out there that skin care professionals have turned to for years for their clients has been hydroquinone. It can be purchased over the counter, but as you might guess, it’s the prescription strength that does wonders. Hydroquinone improves skin texture and tone at the cellular level.
In the Obagi line, the Obagi Nu-Derm Clear 3 system has 4 percent hydroquinone. That is an impressive amount that can really do the trick.
Another topical to make freckles disappear is tretinoin. Yes, this cream helps with acne, too.
Some skin care professionals may also suggest combining both tretinoin and hydroquinone for those after summer freckles.
Having a skin care professional on board is always a great idea especially if using hydroquinone. It’s a powerful product and they need to be sure it doesn’t cause too much irritation to your skin.
There are some people out there that can’t tolerate hydroquinone because of sensitive skin issues. There’s great news, though. There are a couple “top shelf” products on the market which work well to get rid of freckles.
The first one is Vivite Vibrance Therapy. This one restores your skin with a blend of antioxidants like fennel seeds, grapes, green tea, licorice root extract, and mulbery fruit also to diminish freckles.
Vivite users comment on younger looking skin. The product gives the skin a healthy dose of hydration which also lessens fine lines and wrinkles.
RevaleSkin’s advanced technology is based on their coffeeberry extract formula. This unique extract is plant-based and successfully minimizes freckles and age spots. Skin care professionals are now calling coffeeberry extract the “powerhouse” antioxidant. So, it may be worth it to do some research because it appears to be doing a multitude of things to keep skin looking beautiful.
It’s important to note that if you discontinue your treatments, your freckles will come back. Remember, that these topical systems suppress freckles. So you really need to stay proactive through the whole process.
Now that you’re armed with information to tackle those freckles always remember to wear sunscreen any time of the year when you’re outdoors. Sunscreen will stop new freckles from popping up.
