What Should Your Skincare Routine Look Like?

With so many skincare products on the market, the right products to include in your daily routine can get a little confusing. You’re in the right place to get some simple answers. With so much damage done to skin on a daily basis, you want to get a head start on keeping your skin healthy and youthful. What products are really necessary in a basic regimen, and in what order should they be applied?   Cleanser: The first step — morning or night — is to remove any makeup or impurities on your face or in your pores. Look for a gentle cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils but instead hydrates and smooths skin. (Suggested products: Hydrate Cleanser by MaiSkin for all skin types, or Clarify Illumine Cleanser by MaiSkin for oily/combination skin or hyperpigmentation) Toner: Using a good toner will clean your skin on an even deeper level while restoring healthy pH levels and opening up your pores so later creams can be more thoroughly absorbed by the layers of the skin. (Suggested products: Restore Toner by MaiSkin for all skin types or Refine Illumine Toner for oily/combination skin or hyperpigmentation) Exfoliate/mask: Most exfoliators and masks are only meant to be used two to three times a week but do your skin a great service by removing dead and dehydrated skin cells. (Suggested product: Smooth Exfoliator by MaiSkin) Eye serums: Using a hydrating serum around the eye area can minimize the appearance of dark circles, wrinkles and bags. (Suggested products: Affirm Eye Wrinkle Serum, Awaken Dark Circle Eye Serum or Vanish Eye Bag Serum,...

Carboxy Facial: A No-Needle Route

Carboxy Facial: A No-Needle Route

The benefits of carboxytherapy are widely known, but what you may not have been aware of is that you can now get these astounding effects without the use of needles! MD Refresh is pleased to offer the carboxy facial — a no-needle route to hitting the restart button and giving your face the glowing, radiant skin it deserves. Whether you are healing from a more invasive treatment like microneedling, tired of seeing those pesky wrinkles or are trying to eliminate acne, read on to find out how a carboxy facial can hydrate your skin to its healthiest version yet. How Does the Carboxy Facial Work? Just like carboxy therapy, the active ingredient in this treatment is CO2 (carbon dioxide). But, whereas carboxy therapy entails the injection of the gaseous form of CO2 into the skin, in the carboxy facial, your skin is infused with CO2 in liquid form. Essentially, the CO2 releases a large quantity of oxygen to the epidermis by flooding the area with the healing properties of oxygenated blood. That increased blood circulation helps soothe any inflamed skin and smooth out wrinkles. Plus it balances moisture levels in the skin, tightens pores, enhances elasticity, evens skin tone and minimizes discoloration (i.e. age spots, freckles, pigmentation). The treatment takes 60 minutes and while the mask sets, you will be treated to a head and neck massage for maximum comfort during this zero downtime alternative treatment. Results will build as you repeat these facials. Most clients receive a series of five to ten treatments to see the end results they are looking for, which can last up to six...
