Phyto-C ‘s Signature anti-aging cream offers a natural option for botox to achieve a firmer looking skin

Phyto-C’s Signature -$240

With advancements in the technology of skin care products, we’ve been provided with a splendid opportunity to maintain a healthier and more youthful appearance as we age.

Phyto-C’s Signature is a great example of one of those innovative products. Signature presents a “natural alternative to Botox.”

This powerful anti-aging cream’s significant focal point is IMPA™ Complex with the following primary benefits:
Stimulation of cell to cell interactions and an acceleration of cell renewal.
Helps preserve cellular energy, assists in the formulation of collagen, and strengthens in structural proteins.
Decreases the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin imperfections.
Regenerates the skin’s ability to retain moisture, enhances skin elasticity, and tightens and firms the skin.
Brightens and improves the skin tone.
Enhances skin smoothness and radiance.

If you’re looking for an anti-aging treatment with quick results and prefer not to have injections, Phyto-C’s Signature may be just the product you are looking for.

I used Signature for about five weeks. I have a very small line across my forehead that would always appear more noticeable when wearing makeup, and especially when making certain facial expressions. The other day, while out, I looked at my forehead and was surprised to see that it looked very smooth with my makeup on. I later checked when I took my makeup off, and I must say the line was barely noticeable to me. What great results!

The Phyto-C Mission Statement is: Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and the first part of you that touches the rest of the world. And so, it’s both your touchstone and your first defense. Phyto-C understands the importance of your skin, and we know you need to care for your skin as well as you would any other part of your body.

Celebrity Manicurist Skyy Hadley helps you get your feet bright and ready for Sandal Season!

Posted on: March 31st, 2015
Tips for a "Sandal Ready" pedicure from: SKYY HADLEY

Tips for a “Sandal Ready” pedicure from:

Has the thought of spring and summer been on your mind, lately?

Well, it’s not quite time to whip out the summer slides just yet, but there is no harm in prepping our toes, so they are nice and pretty when the time does come! Plus, it is kind of embarrassing trying on new sandals at the shoe store, and everyone noticing your not-so-done pedicure.

Get ready for sandal season with Skyy Hadley’s tips on how to moisturize, hydrate and perfect your feet for the warmer months ahead!

Skyy Hadley’s pointers to achieve “Sandal Ready” feet:

Remove your polish and let your toenails breathe for a good few days. If toenails look discolored, squeeze some lemon into your foot lotion or rub lemon wedge directly onto the nail to brighten them.

• Mix a few cups of warm whole milk in a bowl with vanilla essential oil followed by an exfoliating scrub to remove the dead skin. Avoid using pumice stones since they trap bacteria and use a diamond file instead for those extra rough spots.

• Apply a shea butter lotion or non-greasy cream to lock in moisture; use Vaseline or light vegetable oil on the heels to prevent cracking.

• Begin painting! Apply a cuticle oil to the base of your toenails (or even when they are already polished), focusing on the cuticle area to hydrate and bring moisture into the skin, helping the polish last longer.

Give your feet a little “love” with these wonderful tips from Skyy. Not only will you feel terrific, but your feet will look great in all those new sandals as you enjoy the upcoming warm weather seasons!

Thank you, Skyy for, once again, sharing your expertise with us. Skyy Hadley is a celebrity manicurist and pedicurist at her As U Wish Nail Spa.

Skinn’s Wake up Big Bright Eyes-$28.00:
This one of the best palettes I’ve ever used personally, and as a makeup artist. I’m amazed at how quickly I’m able to achieve a finished and balanced eye look. When I’m on location doing makeup, the palette saves me a lot of time! It also imparts a flawless appearance on all different types of eyes. It’s blendable, with four very compatible shades, and very easy to apply, Skinn’s Wake up Big Bright Eyes Palette adapts beautifully to just about everyone!
FullSizeRender copy
Products Left to Right:
Brow Gel: My eyebrows are sparse. Using the brow gel, I’m able to shape and fill in my brows with ease. They look great all day and never look penciled in or unnatural. The gel is a very versatile color that you can apply, as needed to suit your particular eyebrow needs! Use the angle brush that is included in the palette to enhance your brows.
Eye Highlight Color: Next brush the light soft pink shadow on your complete eye area from lid to brow. Use the shadow brush that’s on the other side of the angle brush.
Shape & Contour Color: Now you’ll contour your eye with the mauve shadow. I usually follow the crease of my eye and shadow slightly above that crease for a real eye lifted look . ( Remember to wipe off the shadow brush whenever you use a different color shadow.)
Line & Define Color:: Your final step is lining and defining your eye. You can use the angle brush or a liner brush with the Cocoa shade. Follow the shape of your eyelid right by your lashes for a precise, clean line. Smudge the line a bit for an attractive softly defined shaping. I’ll sometimes enhance the outer corner of my eye lifting deeper color up into the crease of my eye for a little more drama. With these colors, I’ll still maintain a natural appearance. That’s what I think is so remarkable about the Wake Up Big Bright Eyes Palette, The colors work so well together!

Purchase your Wake Up Big Bright Eyes at:
Skinn Bright Eyes-$12.00:
Skinn Bright Eyes is a perfect complement to your Wake Up Big Bright Eyes Palette! Skinn Bright Eyes has been a staple in my professional case for years! It’s
Lightweight and hydrating, making it a smart choice for the sensitive under eye area. It still, however, gives a nice pick me up so you won’t have to worry about the undereye darkness, which often occurs when you wake up with tired eyes on those mornings when you haven’t had enough sleep. It’s a must have for an afternoon touch-up, and just what you need for a little lift before an evening out on the town! You’ll find many uses for this versatile highlighting brightener!

Skin Bright is available at:

Skinn Contour Pro-$48.75

Dimitri’s Skinn Contour Pro gives your face a natural sculpted look. Remember dark recedes, and light accentuates. I’ll usually apply the darker color to the contour of my cheek bone and just under my jaw bone. I’ll then place the lighter color from the outer corner of my eye area to my temple for a lifting and highlighting effect! Once again, the word subtle applies to the Skinn Contour Pro. I like to use my fingertips to apply and blend, but there are brush options as well. The Skinn Contour Pro palette is another must have to achieve that picture perfect finished look.

Razz Skin Tightening Serum ColoradoAromaticscultivatedskincare<br

Razz Skin Tightening Serum

I had the opportunity to try the Razz Skin Tightening Serum pictured above. I loved the name of the product and couldn’t wait for this firming serum to arrive.

Since my first application of Razz Skin Tightening Serum, I’ve used it on a daily basis. It’s a very light, oil-free moisturizer and has some terrific ingredients. I apply it as my first step on a clean face, and work it upward from under my jaw and in circular motions around my face and forehead. Under my eye area, it’s great for my morning “puffiness”. What’s nice about this product is that it goes right to work on your skin and penetrates. Your skin gets the treatment benefits! The price is $15.95, and I will continue to use this product.

Some of the Key ingredients in Razz Skin Tightening Serum include:
Hyaluronic acid - A super moisturizer that hydrates, aids in tissue repair, and encourages elasticity, firmness and hydration.
Raspberry Leaf- This is grown and raised right on Dr. Jones’ Farm. It’s mineral and vitamin rich to feed the skin and as it tightens and tones.

1. Colorado Aromatics Coolness Aftershave Lotion $14.45
Here is my husband Bob’s review:
My skin is very sensitive, especially after shaving. Colorado Aromatics Coolness After Shave Lotion went on very comfortably there was no tingling or stinging. I look forward to my next shave followed by this soothing after shave lotion. It feels terrific on my neck!

2. Colorado Aromatics Angel Falls Shampoo $6-$16
We both enjoyed this gentle shampoo that really didn’t need a conditioner. We also agreed on the ease of styling and look of our hair after drying. The scalp conditioning benefit of Angel Falls Shampoo is a real bonus!

3.Colorado Aromatics Lavender Soap $6.00:
I still have the sample of this Lavender soap. As a makeup artist, I often wash my hands, and they always feel dry. The Colorado Aromatics Soap has a totally different feel. It cleans, yet also hydrates, and when I dry my hands they feel moisturized.

4.Sole Pleasure Foot Butter $9.75 -$15.95:
What a fantastic foot saver!! Dry, cracked heels always seem to be a problem. The first time I tried Sole Pleasure, I couldn’t believe that the next day my heels looked better, and though I’m not “summer sandal ready” yet… I know I’m going in the right direction. This product has eucalyptus oil for pain relief and tea tree oil as an antiseptic. There are other ingredients you’ll want to read about, that are in Sole Pleasure, if your feet aren’t happy!

Expand your awareness regarding skin cancer and melanoma in a very informative interview with Joel Schwartz, DO

Posted on: March 2nd, 2015


Recently held, World Cancer Day 2015 took ” a positive and proactive approach to the fight against cancer.” I was thrilled when the opportunity came about for me to ask some questions, and get the viewpoint regarding skin cancer and melanoma from:
Joel M. Schwartz, DO
Board Certified in Radiation Oncology
Illinois Cancer Specialists, a practice in The US Oncology Network

Here is my interview with Dr.Joel M.Schwartz:

#1: VICKI: Dr. Schwartz, a lot of people want to know: what is melanoma and who is prone to getting this type of cancer?

DR. SCHWARTZ: Each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than breast, prostate, lung and colon cancers combined. Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer. There are about 120,000 new cases of melanoma each year and melanoma kills an estimated 9,710 people in the U.S. annually. These tumors originate in the pigment-producing melanocytes. Melanomas often resemble moles and some develop from moles.

There are several factors that can put someone at a higher risk of developing a melanoma.
Early sun exposure - a research study involving nurses reported in 2014 found that white women who get five or more blistering sunburns between the ages of 15 and 20 have an 80 percent increased risk for melanoma.

Tanning bed usage – A 2014 study estimated that more than 400,000 cases of skin cancer may be related to indoor tanning in the United States each year—causing 245,000 basal cell carcinomas, 168,000 squamous cell carcinomas, and 6,000 melanomas.
Moles - atypical moles, (also known as dysplastic nevi) can be precursors to melanoma, the more moles you have, the greater your risk for melanoma.
Skin type – Fair-skinned people are at much greater risk than those with darker skin. This is because darker skinned people produce more melanin, the pigment that gives color to skin and hair, and protects the skin from damage from ultraviolet radiation.
Eye and hair color – people with blue or green eyes and red hair or blond hair are at increased risk for developing melanoma.
Genetics - About one in every 10 patients diagnosed with the disease has a family member with a history of melanoma. Each person with a first-degree relative diagnosed with melanoma has a 50 percent greater chance of developing the disease than people who do not have a family history of the disease.
A person with both an atypical mole and a family history of melanoma is at “high risk” for melanoma.

#2: VICKI: Other than melanoma, are there other types of skin cancers people should be aware of? How common are they?

DR. SCHWARTZ: The most common types of skin cancers are Basal Cell Carcinomas (BCC) and Squamous Cell Carcinomas (SCC). They are much more common than melanoma. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer with an estimated 2.8 million diagnosed annually in the U.S. Squamous Cell Carcinoma is the 2nd most common form of skin cancer. An estimated 700,000 cases of SCC are diagnosed each year in the U.S. About 2% percent of SCC patients – between 3,900 and 8,800 people – died from the disease in the U.S. in 2012

#3: VICKI What are the common warning signs and symptoms that people should bring to their doctor’s attention?

DR. SCHWARTZ: For melanoma, there are the classic “ABCDE signs.”
This includes moles with:
Uneven Borders
Multiple Colors
A Diameter greater than an eraser
An Evolving or changing appearance.
Also, any mole that appears to be different or is changing differently than other moles, may be a warning sign for melanoma (this is referred to as the “Ugly Duckling” sign).

With regard to BCC and SCC, these cancers often appear as:
An open sore that does not heal
A shiny-pearly bump
A pink bump with edges that are rolled in appearance.

#4 VICKI: Why do malignant skin lesions and other skin spots seem to suddenly appear as people get older?

DR.SCHWARTZ: As people age, two things happen. First, the body becomes less able to police itself and correct genetic mistakes (i.e. mutations) which occur all the time as the body is making new cells. Since the body of an older person is less savvy at correcting these genetic mistakes, they are more likely to survive, become incorporated into our bodies and develop into cancers.
In addition, sun cumulative exposure is a risk factor for skin cancer. The longer a person lives, the more sun exposure he/she has and the possibility of developing skin cancer increases as well.

#5 VICKI: Other than regular use of sun protection, are there any other preventatives that we can do to lessen the chance of getting skin cancer?

DR. SCHWARTZ: This is a very interesting topic since risky and voluntary over-exposure to the sun (or a tanning bed) is very preventable. This is particularly concerning regarding teenagers and young adults. With regards to the prevention of skin cancer, I believe society has a real responsibility to help individuals enhance their self-esteem and thereby help people appreciate their unique, tremendous inner value.
There is a growing body of evidence that for many people, tanning has become an addiction.
Like other addictions, it is often associated with:
A desire to escape
A dissatisfaction with one’s self-image

Research suggests that this self-destructive behavior (i.e. excessive sun or tanning bed exposure) is correlated with low self-esteem scores and an unhealthy self-image.

By helping people improve their self-esteem, an individual’s obsession with a “beautiful dark tan” will hopefully be replaced by solid feelings of inner self-worth and a life of purpose and meaning.
As I see it, improving someone’s self-esteem is an important avenue of skin cancer prevention.

#6 VICKI: That certainly is a very interesting point, Dr.Schwartz!Are there any new medical breakthroughs in dealing with melanomas or skin cancers?

DR. SCHWARTZ: For a long time, we have known that early-stage melanoma can usually be cured with surgery. With regard to more advanced and metastatic melanomas, the prognosis had been much more bleak.

In the last few years however, we have seen enormous breakthroughs in the area of new pharmaceuticals for advanced melanoma. This includes drugs which are targeted to specific genetic mutations (i.e. BRAF inhibitors and MEK inhibitors) which attempt to “turn off” the growth process within melanoma tumors.

Another group of new drugs are “immunotherapy” drugs. These medicines (T-cell simulators and anti-PD1 agents) try to activate and recruit the body’s own immune system to recognize and to destroy melanoma tumors.

In the area of BCC and SCC, surgery has also been the traditional mainstay of therapy (with a 90-98% cure rate). An exciting new area of treatment for BCC and SCC is non-surgical Skin HDR radiotherapy. Skin HDR treats BCC and SCC with a tiny radioactive seed that briefly rests on top of the skin cancer.
These treatments are:
Fast (5-10 min) they are
Precisely targeted and very effective (they have a 90-95% cure rate)
Since these treatments are non-invasive, there are no surgical scars, they require no anesthesia, and there is no need for subsequent plastic surgery to repair a hole left by prior cancer surgery.

Recent research indicates that surgeons commonly underestimate the importance which patients attribute to their appearance. This same researcher has found that scars (especially on the face) tended to have a negative impact on patients’ psychosocial functioning.

I believe that surgery will always be used for the treatment of BCC and SCC. In the current era of “minimally invasive procedures”, Skin HDR offers people an effective and less disfiguring skin cancer treatment option.

#7 VICKI: Do you recommend that your family physician, internist or PCP provide regular skin check-ups? Should you ask for a referral if they do not provide them, and how often should you have your skin checked?

Patients with:
Multiple moles
Atypical moles
A history of melanoma
A 1st degree relative with melanoma
A known genetic predisposition for melanoma should perform self-examinations and should be checked regularly by a Dermatologist. Dermatologists have special tools and training to track and follow patients at high risk for skin cancers. These tools include Dermatoscopy and Total Body Photography.

At this point, the CDC and the US Preventative Task Force have concluded that there is not enough evidence to recommend for or against routine screening (total body examination by a doctor) to find skin cancers early..

In my experience, patient’s always know their bodies better than anyone else. If a person feels that he/she has a skin lesion that has changed or is acting strangely, I believe that one should trust their instincts and have it evaluated.

#8 VICKI: Is there anything else that you’d like to share? This a very important and interesting topic.

DR. SCHWARTZ: Medicine is entering a new era that demands a more holistic approach to patient care. The field of skin cancer treatment is certainly no different. Physicians need to use the best, state-of-the-art-treatments to target and cure skin cancers. This is just the tip of the iceberg however. We also need to be looking for the root causes and behaviors that promote skin cancers. We need to spend more time focused on “preventative medicine” (including sunscreen education, tanning bed education, taking preventative medicines such as aspirin, as well as providing psychological support and addiction support to our patients when necessary). We need to do dietary assessments of our patients and provide advice for supplementation (i.e. Vitamin D supplementation) when necessary.

In addition, patients are looking for treatments that are less invasive and less destructive. Just as the lumpectomy has allowed women with breast cancer to avoid the disfigurement of a mastectomy, some patients with skin cancer will benefit from the completely non-surgical treatment delivered with Skin HDR. I believe that a holistic approach in medicine should attempt to leave every person as whole as possible.

We know that skin cancer patients aren’t always given all of their treatment options. Accordingly, I feel a responsibility to provide my patients with ALL of their treatment options including options which allow them to keep their entire ear, nose, finger, etc.
“Survivorship” is a new word in the lexicon of cancer medicine and it is a very important word in the eyes of patients. It’s a term that describes how each person is going to live and survive with the lifelong effects of their cancer and with the effects of their cancer treatment. Survivorship has to be important to physicians too.

Thank you, Dr. Schwartz, for taking time to provide the readers with such valuable information and websites to further educate, empower, and expand their cancer awareness regarding Skin Cancer, Melanoma and “Survivorship”!

Move over toners! Heaven Skincare’s self healing hydrogels deliver an innovative alternative!

Posted on: February 20th, 2015

We’ve all used toners in conjunction with our skincare regimes. They’re usually applied after you cleanse your face to ready your skin for additional treatment products.

I’m happy to share a state-of-the-art product with you that goes beyond traditional skin toners!

Deborah Mitchell, “known as skin therapist to the stars” , has developed Heaven by Deborah Mitchell Hydrogels. “This self-healing hydrogel is technically made up of a cross-link network of organic polymer type molecules with a netlike composition!”
What this means for your skin is that hydrogels will:
hydrate your skin!
"Heaven by Deborah Mitchell Hydrogels do everything a toner does and much more." “Heaven by Deborah Mitchell Hydrogels do everything a toner does and much more.”

Heaven Skincare’s self healing hydrogels provide so many benefits, and are available in three formulations to choose from for your particular skincare needs.

Chamomile Desensitising Hydrogel

Chamomile Desensitising Hydrogel

Hydration is the key in this anti-allergenic, desensitizing and anti-inflammatory hydrogel. Your sensitive skin, with Chamomile and Rose essential oil, will feel smooth and calm , while organic Witch Hazel freshens your skin as it improves the appearance of enlarged pores. As a “red-reducing” hydrogel, the Chamomile Desensitising Hydrogel is a great choice for extremely sensitive skin!

Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogel

Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogel

This hydrogel is appropriate for all skin types including oily and dry. It’s offers a boost while cooling distressed skin and helps refine the pores. The effect of peppermint and spearmint essential oils is very calming to the skin, and while lavender will soothe the skin, coconut will moisturise. Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogel is a good blend to normalize oil and encourage a Ph balance.

Orange Flower Cell Renewal Hydrogel

Orange Flower Cell Renewal Hydrogel

This was the product that I had the opportunity to actually use. I’m always looking to keep my skin as youthful as possible, and I certainly was not disappointed with the Orange Flower Cell Renewal! It has a cooling and firming feel after I apply it each morning and evening after cleansing. It’s an anti-aging and pigment scar hydrogel! It also speeds cell renewal addressing exactly what I like to target in skin care products. One of the benefits listed is an “increase in firming action”. After applying the Orange Flower Hydrogel, the product penetrates my skin quickly, and I’m able to apply any other products or cosmetics that complete my finished look.

The hydrogels come in three sizes to fit any budget, and the smaller size is a perfect “travel size” or “Try Me” option to experience how well this product works! $78 (120ml)• $37.50 (30ml) • $19.50 (10ml)!
