How Apple Cider Vinegar Helps Acne



Recent scientific studies done by dermatologists have determined that when our facial skin pH is not slightly acidic at about 5.5, then we may get more acne breakouts.  Using a pH correcting skin product like this Apple Cider vinegar-based line “True Cider” should inprove your complexion.  

Do not think that by adding straight up apple cider vinegar to your face you will get the same results.  The pH needs to be just right, so you can over-acidify with too much vinegar.

Holiday Makeup and Fashion

HOLIDAY MAKEUP, 


CANDY CANE eyes:





featuring Riley and Maya 





This is Xmas eye makeup that I applied on Riley





This is Hannukah eye makeup that I applied on Riley's big sister Maya.


More velvet!
This is a taupe velvet headband from Old Navy
It is super cute on my co-worker Megan.




Immediately after applying "Sassy Z" color in LipSense with clear gloss

Immediately after again


Six hours after applying, color still there.

Trying this long-lasting lip color.  Active ingredient is "acrylates" which is the building block for glue.  Acrylates may cause allergy in some people as they do in lip cosmetics.  In addition, there is a little stinging when you apply the product initially especially if you have any cracks or dryness in your lips.  My co-workers say the stinging fades after a couple weeks, once your lips have exfoliated.

More velvet for the season. Adorable Chevron Velvet purse
from Old Navy in Oxblood color, link as follows:





Gunmetal blue/gray polish winter nails with mystic topaz ring



This is a great holiday gift.  This all-in-one make-up palette is unique in being compact/small and having everything:  eyes, lips, cheeks.





This is Olivia, Master Aesthetician and model wearing this adorable deep blue velvet mini backpack from Mudd brand available at Kohls.  Her long wavy hair goes well with the mini pack. We are loving the velvet craze and want velvet everything.

Model:  Karen Stolman, M.D.   Photographer:  Olivia Anderson, M.A.

Threading

I recently had the privilege to receive a threading demonstration treatment as shown in the video below, from a top South Korean doctor, Hanjin Kwon M.D.  It hurts no more than filler treatment, and topical numbing cream can be used before starting.  Recovery is very similar to filler with temporary bruising, swelling, soreness for about a week.  I had bruises that looked like stripes on my face for at least a week.  I covered them with makeup, no big deal.  Bruising is less if you avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil supplements, St. John's Wort, wine and any other blood thinning medications for at least ten days before the treatment.

I know you are probably asking, is it better than filler?  My answer is, No, just another option to achieve similar results.   One possible advantage of threading is the risk of intravascular occlusion seen with filler injection is not present.  The results may be more delayed than filler.  Pricing is similar to filler and depends on number of areas treated.
