No-Zit New Year: Get Clean, Clear, Cool-Weather Skin

Posted by Charllene Wang on

2017 is finally here! It’s time for new year’s resolutions and getting into new, better skin care habits. If you want to spark up your new year with an acne-free appearance then beauty devices may be your new best friend.

Winter is notorious for making problematic skin worse. The dry air irritates sensitive skin, causes breakouts, and wicks away moisture making even normal skin dry, scaly, and chapped. So what can you do when the cold fronts move in and your skin protests with a big, bad breakout?

In the days before home beauty devices, you would only have two options. Slow-working at-home remedies, which need to be left on overnight for full effect, or a trip to the dermatologist’s office for a quick, but expensive, fix. Now you can have both the convenience of at-home treatments and the powerful, fast-acting effects of in-office procedures, all rolled into one amazing skin care machine: the UC-3500 Professional Portable High Frequency Machine.

How Does It Work?

The UC-3500 Professional Portable High Frequency Machine uses a “Tesla” or alternating current to send a high-frequency (60,000-200,000 hertz) electric current deep into the skin through electrodes. There are three different types of electrodes, and the intensity of the current is adjustable. The treatment is completely safe, and it isn’t painful, but you may experience a light stinging feeling; generally, it just produces a mild warming sensation.

There are two ways to combat acne with the UC-3500. The first is with direct high frequency, by passing the electrode over the affected area in direct contact with the skin. The other is to use a dry gauze pad to “spark” or create a gap to apply the current indirectly to a specific area, such as a blemish. Both of these methods produce ozone by introducing electricity into the oxygen around the affected area. Ozone is a strong anti-bacterial agent and helps reduce redness, inflammation, and pain by fighting bacteria inside the blemish.

The Argon electrode, which creates a blue-violet color when the current is flowing is ideal for treating lesions and severe blemishes. The Neon electrode, which is red-orange when in use, is better suited for oily skin and mild acne.

Is There Any Special Preparation?

Unlike some other at-home beauty devices that provide professional-quality treatments in the comfort and convenience of your bathroom, the UC-3500 doesn’t require any preparation besides having a clean, dry face (or body), free of lotions, moisturizers, and other conductors. You don’t need a conductive gel to use the UC-3500.

However, you will need to moisturize your skin after using the UC-3500. Our Nutritive Balancer is ideal for oily or acne-prone skin, with Sea Kelp Extract and Hyaluronic Acid to drench your skin in healthy moisture without making it greasy. For dry or mature skin, consider our Hydroptimal Cream, which has strong antioxidant ingredients, including the moisture-rich skin super-food, shea butter, to help fragile skin fight off damage from the inside out.

What Else Can It Do?

When making a long-term beauty investment, it’s important for the product to have more than one benefit. In addition to the incredible acne-fighting capabilities of the UC-3500, it has a number of other skin care applications. The Neon electrode can be used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the puffiness or dark circles around the eye, and even out the texture and tone of the skin. The mushroom electrode can be used to increase blood circulation and firm sagging skin. Finally, the comb electrode can help prevent hair loss.

The UC-3500 is like having a dermatologist’s office in your home, available whenever the weather, or bad luck, brings you breakout or blemishes. So treat yourself and make those skin care resolutions a little easier. Here’s to a No-Zit New Year for all!

微针的使用方法和注意事项

这几年,微针在美容界的影响力极大,是很多高端美容院的首推课程。但是,大家往往只看到微针的神奇效果,确没注意使用不当对皮肤的伤害。经长有亲为了省钱,买冒牌的微针仪器,使用的针头不符合规格,没有经过消毒等,导致皮肤受到感染,情况严重,不得不去找医生解决问题.现在就让我来跟大家讲讲微针的作用与使用方法,以及它的注意事项。功能特点:微针疗法美容创新的抗衰老护肤科技,刺激皮肤骨胶原增生微针疗法利用天然方法刺激骨胶原增生,而不会破坏皮肤表皮层,从而唤醒及提升肌肤的再生功能。有助淡化皱纹及色斑,改善皮肤质感,使肌肤明亮有光泽,调匀肤色及增加皮肤弹性,使你明艳照人,回复青春。微针疗法能有效提升养分的渗透能力,穿越皮肤表皮层及真皮层细胞,效果尤其显著,是养分输送方法的科技护肤新特效。再者,微针疗法刺激真皮层的伤口自愈能力,其效果可媲美激光及填充式的整型手术。而微针技术的副作用极低,安全可靠,是最佳的抗衰老护理疗法。微针美容可解决以下皮肤问题:1)减淡皱纹、诱发骨胶原增生、治疗蜂窝组织、皮肤厚度问题、治疗疤痕及妊娠纹。2)肌肤美白、减淡色斑、改善眼部皱纹、黑眼圈,刺激骨胶原增生、收紧及提升面部皮肤组织。3)治理秃发、家用护理、有效输送养分。如何操作:1) 清洗脸部 2) 带上一次性医用手套3) 把针头装入仪器上,并调好针的长度和仪器运作的速度。一般来说,自己在家操作只需用0.25mm-0.5mm之间的针长,速度选择Level1或Level2, 如果是除皱,祛疤,和淡斑,可以使用0.5mm以上,速度在Level2-Level5之间。请各位记住,要从浅到深慢慢加长,不要操之过急。4) 在脸部喷上生理盐水(Saline Solution,在Walgreen就有得卖)。不建议使用任何精华液与微针同时使用,但可以在微针美容之后使用。 而精华液的选择则看个人皮肤的需求来定。比如说,淡斑可用维他命C精华液。如果是淡疤则建议用EGF或维他命E,以此类推。5) 微针必须与脸垂直90度进行操作(电动微针),以打圆圈的方式让微针在皮肤上走。每个部位走三次就好,不要过多。6) 脸部需要加强部位,可以增加次数和加长针长,操作时,一只手可以将皮肤轻轻往上提,皮肤绷紧时会比较好操作。7) 做完后可附上一片修复面膜,如:EGF面膜,维他命E面膜,或芦荟面膜等。8) 微针后24小时内不易涂抹防晒霜,任何防晒产品皆因在24小时后再使用。问题与回答:问: 微针美容有哪些功效?答: 微针疗法能刺激骨胶原增生,有助淡化皱纹及色斑,改善皮肤质感,使肌肤明亮有光泽,调匀肤色及增加皮肤弹性,刺激真皮层的伤口自愈能力,搭配表皮细胞再生因子(EGF)精华液一起适用,效果更佳!问:多久做一次微针美容?答:如果是日常美容护理,如:加强胶原蛋白增生的能力,每个礼拜都可以做。建议使用的针长为0.25mm-0.50mm, 仪器运作的速度选择Level1-Level2。要记住每四个礼拜休息一个礼拜。如果是针对皱纹,疤痕,和色斑,每4-6个礼拜做一次,中间休息两个礼拜。使用的针长为0.5mm以上,仪器运作的速度可选择Level2-Level5。记住,从短到长,从低到高。请注意,每个人的肤质不同,使用微针后的反应也不同,因此效果会有差异,但通常使用一次后便有细微的变化。问:微针是否仅用在脸部?答:微针可以用在脸部,颈部,以及全身使用。问: 微针美容一定要到美容院做吗?我自己在家可以操作吗?答: 一般在较高档的美容院或者医学美容院能找到微针美容的课程,它要求操作者有熟练的手法及足够的实践经验,但这并不代表只能在美容院做微针的护理,自己在家也是可以操作的。问题不在于你有多少医学美容方面的知识,而是操作的熟练与谨慎。第一次操作会紧张,但是多次练习后便能熟能生巧了。问:微针美容会疼吗?答:如果使用0.25mm-0.5mm的针长,在使用时会有被蚊子咬的感觉,刺刺痛痛的,但是0.5mm以上的针长则建议事先使用麻醉霜。注意,不要因为涂抹了麻醉霜,不感觉疼痛而操作时间太长,导致过量现象。问:微针美容后皮肤会有什么反应?答:微针美容后通常会出现红肿现象,就如在阳光下暴晒后的感觉,但这种现象在12-48小时内便会消失。如果使用1.0mm以上的针长,有可能会出现流血,青紫,或脱皮现象,均属正常。还有可能留下针孔,但不明显,不会出现血点,这些都是暂时性的,两三天后所有现象都会消失。我们建议使用有修复性和保湿性的护肤品来加速皮肤的修复功能,如:(宫)表皮细胞再生因子精华液或凝胶,让微针美容后的各种症状消失得更快。此产品里另含有补水保湿效果很好的玻尿酸,能让肌肤一直保持水分。切勿使用带果酸类和维他命A类的产品。在做完微针美容一两个礼拜后,您会看到皮肤变得平滑有光泽,紧致且有弹性,而更明显的改变会在6-8个礼拜之后体现。问:如果因使用0.5mm以上针长,出现脱皮,该如何处理?答:如使用0.5mm以上针长而现象脱皮现象是正常的,不用惊慌,什么都不需做,只需跟平常一样做好补水保湿工作即可。脱皮停止后,会长出新嫩表皮,这时,皮肤会变得细柔光滑,明亮照人哦。问:做微针美容的最好时段是什么时候?答:做微针美容的做好时段是在周末,因为可以利用周六和周日两天休息日在家修复,可以不用出门。这是对使用0.5mm针长以上的建议,因为使用0.5mm针长有可能出现红肿,淤青,和脱皮现象。使用0.5mm以下针长则没有这个顾虑。问:在操作微针时应该以直线走还是打圈圈的方式走?答:我们建议以打圈圈的方式走,因为这样会更密集,且不容易拉伤皮肤。问:同一根针可以重复使用吗?答:不能。为确保不受感染,微针的针头不能重复使用,一个针筒只能用一次。问:微针美容有副作用吗?答:到目前为止没有因使用微针出现任何副作用的记录。问: 到哪里购买微针仪器?答: 现在网络发达,在网上购物很方便,但在选择商家时一定要小心,不要因价钱便宜而买到假冒伪略产品。这台韩国原产的My-M Microneedling Device在eBay和Amazon有不少假冒的,价格在$39-$100美元之间。正牌My-M Microneedling Device在美国只有一个签约代理商,而他们的统一标价是$580美金一台微针仪器,另加一盒针(共十支针)问:MY-M微针的针筒里有几根针头?答:MY-M微针的针筒内有12根针头。问: 如何区分假冒MY-M微针仪器和正牌MY-M微针仪器?答: 正牌的MY-M微针都有生产编号和截止日期,不同批量生产出的微针编号不一样,而截止日期是相应的,但是假冒的MY-M微针的编号每个卖家都相同,但是截止日期却都不一样。问: 为何不建议使用价廉的假冒MY-M微针仪器?答: 其实微针仪器的针比仪器本身更值得注意,因为针头会直接进入您皮肤,所以针的安全性非常的重要。原装进口的MY-M微针仪器的针是百分之百不锈钢材质,并属医疗级别, 所有的针都进过消毒,并且富有检验报告和编码。假冒的MY-M微针仪器的针或许也有编码,但是您若请公司出示检验报告,他们未必能提供。我常常收到客人的邮件有关为何他/她使用的针进入仪器后是歪的。有些客人正相反,在别处买了冒牌的MY-M微针仪器,却想使用正牌的针(因为他们也知道针的重要性), 结果针无法插入仪器中。其实购买正版产品最主要的目的就是为了确保安全与质量,假冒的产品无法做到这两点。既然是一次性的消费,建议大家还是支持原装,用得也放心!

面膜小常識

接觸面膜很久,一直認爲面膜是改善膚質的最快的方法噢~而且各種各樣的面膜可以經常換著使用,並不像護膚品,需要連續使用很久才能用完。 所以面膜對于女人有著天生的吸引力。但是MM們真的會做面膜嗎?真的會選擇自己適合的面膜嗎? 下面就把一些問題總結起來供大家參考參考,也許會對MM們有所幫助哇~Question: 面膜應該用在哪個步驟呢? Answer: 正常的使用步驟是: 潔面-化妝水-精華-面膜-晚霜或者乳液 (如果是水洗面膜,比如是清潔的泥巴,在面膜的前後都可以使用爽膚水的,加強皮膚的補水效果以及之後的二次清潔) 好多MM在化妝水上糾結,是否要先拍水水再敷面膜呢? 好多MM都知道,化妝水有補水保濕的功效,覺得在敷面膜之前,尤其是保濕面膜,本身就是補水保濕的,就不必再用化妝水了。 其實化妝水還有一個另外的功效,那就是二次清潔。 並且擦了水水以後會更好的促進面膜的營養成分的吸收。無論是不是清潔功效的化妝水,都多少可以達到二次清潔效果的 (這裏需要用到化妝棉噢) 很多MM覺得化妝棉會浪費化妝水,其實不然。化妝棉在擦化妝水的時候,可以去除臉上的老廢角質,更可以擦到一些邊邊角角的位置,是必不可少的工具呢! 再說精華。有的MM又說了,這面膜本身就有精華,不需要再擦精華液了吧. 如果您敷的是保濕效果的面膜,同樣又再使用保濕效果的精華液,那麽可以省略精華液的步驟。 因爲即使同種效果的精華液和面膜裏的精華液,也不保證一定不會存在相互排斥的效果。所以可以省略精華液的步驟。 但是,如果使用的是保濕的面膜,但是使用其他效果(比如美白)的精華液,那麽可以先擦精華液,再敷面膜噢,我這樣試過,效果是非常好的呵呵。 最後,切記一定要擦上晚霜鎖住面膜的營養成分!Question: 我的皮膚很油,應該選擇什麽樣的面膜呢?是控油效果的嗎? Answer: 問這個問題的MM不占少數噢,現在好多MM都是混合皮膚,T區經常出油。但是油並不一定需要控油的,而是需要保濕。 皮膚油的原因是因爲皮膚內的水和油沒有達到平衡,水少,油多,自然看起來皮膚油光光。 這樣一分析,去油的第一要務不是控油和吸油,而是要補水和保濕。當皮膚的水,油達到平衡,自然皮膚不再分泌油脂啦~ 另外,油MM過度的潔面,或者過度的使用吸油面紙,也會讓皮膚出油的情況更爲嚴重,切記切記哈~Question : 面膜是要在早上用效果好,還是在晚上用效果好呢? Answer: 每天晚上11點到淩晨2點,是皮膚自行修補受損細胞的時候,因此在這段時間以前,或睡前敷最佳,有助于將養分隨新陳代謝送入肌膚底層。 但是對于一些塗抹式的面膜,注重補水效果的,也可以隨身攜帶,在皮膚感到幹燥或不適的時候隨時塗抹。另外,在洗澡以後敷面膜效果也很好,因爲在洗澡的時候,皮膚的毛孔被打開了,這時候敷面膜,可以更有效的吸收營養成分,而且稍微涼一點的面膜,也可以促進毛孔收縮噢~Question: 面膜裏面會有一個薄薄的塑料紙,那是做什麽用的? Answer: 有的面膜裏面會有白顔色的珍珠膜。好多MM都問,那個東西是做什麽的,要不要扔掉? 還有的MM鬧了笑話,說這個珍珠膜一點都不服帖,貼在臉上也不透氣。嘿嘿,其實這個珍珠膜是要扔掉的,主要用途大概是防止面膜在袋子裏發皺,而影響貼在臉上時候的效果。Question; 我皮膚敏感,應該選用什麽樣的面膜呢? Answer: 敏感皮膚的MM,分爲兩種情況,一種是本身由于身體內部的原因,就是對某種物質敏感。另一種就是,多發在換季的時候,由于氣候幹燥等等原因,引起的敏感反應。 第一種情況就比較複雜,可能需要借助醫學來解決。針對第二種情況,在換季的時候敏感的MM,我是不倡導什麽都不擦的。無論怎樣,基礎的護膚還是需要的。而最重要的,就是要補水和保濕啦~ 說到這裏,就不得不提出一個概念,保濕等于補水嗎? 答案是否定的。顧名思義,補水是補充肌膚的水分,保濕是保持肌膚的水分,很容易區分吧。打比方,在我們用噴霧噴臉或者拍化妝水的時候,就是在補水;那麽當我們在之後使用面霜或者乳液的時候,就是在保濕。又或者,在用保濕面霜和乳液以前塗上一層薄薄的補水産品也是很好的保養方法。在敏感時期,常常可以借助藥妝化妝水以及藥妝面膜來達到補水保濕的效果。經常的使用保濕面膜和晚霜/乳液的搭配,可以大大的降低肌膚敏感狀況的發生。Question: 我想要美白,應該如何選擇面膜呢? Answer: 一般的MM想要美白的,第一個就會想到,找美白功效的面膜。 但是,殊不知,黑色素的形成和加深,都和一個進程有關系---細胞被氧化。如果可以從根源抑制細胞的被氧化過程,那麽對美白護理會有著很大的影響。如果說美白修複,是存在于皮膚已經曬黑或者形成黑色素沈澱以後,來做的補救措施,那麽,抗氧化就是預防黑色素産生的前提條件了。 抗氧化的東西,是要滲透到皮膚裏面的,所以在化妝水,精華,或者面膜中含有這些成分是比較好的,畢竟他們是排列在前幾位和皮膚直接接觸的,效果也會是最好的。 額外說一下,如何進行肌膚的抗氧化呢?首先,無論何時何地,一定要注意防曬,另外,化妝也會使細胞被氧化,所以卸妝工作更是要做足。Question: 面膜是否可以每天做呢? Answer: 對于保濕面膜,是可以每天做的。尤其幹MM。但是對于一些特殊功效的,比如美白面膜是不建議使用的太爲頻繁的噢。因爲美白面膜的大多數原理都是讓皮膚變薄,這樣新的皮膚露出來,自然看起來白皙啦。但是長期這樣,會讓皮膚敏感發紅噢。所以基本上建議,如果整體在幹燥的環境中,可以每天敷補水面膜。至于其他的面膜。一周2次左右就足夠了。Question: 做面膜的時候是否應該躺下?還是可以隨意走動呢? Answer: 這個問題的答案要分面膜的種類來回答了。對于水洗式/塗抹式面膜,無論你采用哪種姿勢,都是沒什麽問題的。但是對于貼片式面膜,還是建議要躺下來做的哈。原因就是,大家都知道地心引力的問題吧,貼片面膜相比塗抹式的面膜會有一定的重量的。如果站起來或者隨意走動,一是容易滑下來,二是地心引力會拉著面膜像下走。由于面膜是緊緊貼著臉部皮膚的,會導致臉部的皮膚也像下的趨勢,時間長了,會引起臉部下垂噢,所以還是盡量躺著做面膜比較好。Question: 面膜是擦越厚越好嗎? Answer: 說明書上經常會提到,請敷厚厚的一層。真的需要嗎?答案是肯定的。當敷厚厚的一層的時候,面膜將臉部皮膚和外部的空氣隔離開來,臉部肌膚的溫度就會上升, [...]
