If you are a teen suffering from acne I can help...

If you or your teen suffer from acne, I can help. Thankfully, there is a wide range of options for different varieties of Acne and skin types. At Platinum Image Services I can examine and recommend a treatment, or combination of treatments, for your unique needs. In addition to medical treatment there are things you can do daily that will help to minimize the effects of acne. Acne Treatment Tips 1. Wash twice a day and after sweating with the medical grade facewash I recommend. Perspiration, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, can make acne worse, so wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating. 2.Use your fingertips to apply a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser. Using a washcloth, mesh sponge or anything else can irritate the skin.(do not over exfoliate or use a clairisonic this just moves bacteria around and can push it further into the skin.) Be gentle with your skin. Use gentle products, such as those that are alcohol-free. Do not use products that irritate your skin, which may include astringents, toners and exfoliants. Dry, red skin makes acne appear worse. Scrubbing your skin can make acne worse. Avoid the temptation to scrub your skin. 3.Rinse with lukewarm water. Shampoo regularly. If you have oily hair, shampoo daily. Let your skin heal naturally. If you pick, pop or squeeze your acne, your skin will take longer to clear and you increase the risk of getting acne scars. Keep your hands off your face. Touching your skin throughout the day can cause flare-ups. Stay out of the sun and tanning beds. Tanning damages you skin. In addition, some acne medications make the skin very sensitive to ultraviolet (UV) light, which you get from both the sun and indoor tanning devices. Using tanning beds increases your risk for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, by 75 percent. Use the Platinum Premium Airbrush Tan in a can if you need a glow or look red from acne. Its natural and better than clogging the pores with makeup. 4. Tone the skin twice a day every time you cleanse this will help to ph balance the skin and prepare it for the medical grade treatment.(needeling at this point may be necessary if severe acne scars are present.) 5. Apply treatment with a brush make sure to cover problem areas well and to clean the brush each time you use it. 6. Apply moisturizer and wait 5 minutes and apply medical grade sunblock.

Natural Airbrush Tanning You can do yourself

Platinum Image Services a business based in Los Angeles, California is now offering a wide range of natural sunless tanning products. As can be seen on, these products are made up of nourishing, skin firming ingredients, which means that they will not harm the skin in any way. "Many fake tan products contain huge amounts of chemicals, including parabens, alcohol, artificial fragrances and DMDM," says Christine Reed . "All of these chemicals are harmful to the body and the environment. People often feel they can use it safely because they put it on the skin, rather than ingesting it. However, the skin actually absorbs all these nasty chemicals and sends them to various parts of the body. Our products are completely natural and therefore do not cause damage to either the body or the planet as a whole." Platinum Image Services products are vegan approved. The method of creating the self tan product is such that it has little to no smell. This is in stark contrast to other self tan products, which often smell for a number of days. Additionally, moisturizing agents have been added to the product for further benefit to the skin. The product also contains jojoba oil and hibiscus flower extract. These ingredients have been shown to help protect the skin from UV damage, encourage further collagen growth, and even provide the body with antioxidants. Antioxidants fight free radical damage, which has the potential to cause cancer. These products have also been positively reviewed. "These are by far the best tanning solution products I have used!" says Christine Reed. "I had the privilege of coming up with a way people can tan themselves at home with a can that sprays just like a airbrush tan. No sticky feeling, very quick drying, lovely natural glow and lasts over a week with no patchy appearance as it has faded! I am enjoying using the products on my clients."

The On-Demand Services That Los Angeles Women Love

Los Angeles women don’t waste pre-event time sitting in traffic—they have the beauty team come to them. Here’s whom they call to get red carpet–ready. Tone Up Didn’t have time to get to the gym before the big night? We can re-create yoga-inspired workout in your home. Book 24 hours in advance, but if you really want to plan ahead, I suggests starting two months before an event, doing yoga three to times per week to be in top form for the evening. Whether you’re a yogi or a first-timer, this sweat session will have you believing in the power of a your body. Shop Savvy Solve the age-old problem of having “bad skin” and order medical grade skincare products at under the store section. I started using Environ about 10 years ago, when I was 27. I wanted products which would improve my overall skin condition and reduce the chances of further damage. I am fair-skinned with a bit of sun damage. The RAD sunscreen is wonderful and I use it every day whether I am going outside or not. UV rays can get you everywhere! I am now using the Classic products in the range and have noticed over the last 12 months that my skin is firmer and clearer, I have less blackheads and I've only had about 5 large pimples in the last year. Amazing! Stay Relaxed If the lead-up to the event had you running around all day, book some much-needed relaxation. Platinum Image Services, which has been offering in-home massage services in Los Angeles since the app launched 2003, has extended its menu to include a the most effective type of massage therapy for lower back pain neuromuscular therapy. Neuromuscular therapy is also called trigger point myotherapy. The American Academy of Pain Management recognizes this form of massage therapy as an effective treatment for back pain caused by soft tissue injury (such as a muscle strain). Neuromuscular therapy consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressure on the areas of muscle spasm. The massage therapy pressure is usually applied with the fingers, knuckles, or elbow. Once applied to a muscle spasm, the pressure should not vary for ten to thirty seconds. Get Glam Nothing quite sets the mood for a glamorous evening more than having your own hair and makeup team to help you prep, feather, and fluff. Enter, an on-demand beauty services app that has taken Los Angeles by storm with its team of expert hairstylists and makeup artists who bring to life any look. We look forward to meeting you!!

What is the difference between 3d Eyelash Extensions and Regular Eyelash Extensions

For those of us that want more ump than they have already there is 3d Lashes! 3d Lashes are tiny clusters of lashes (4 to 5 lashes usually) attached to one lash creating a very glamorous look. Lashes should never be glued together just like with eyelash extensions so the process can take a little less time if the lashtician knows what they are doing. These clumps of lashes are not like the spider clumps you buy at the drugstore they are more together and facing up and the knot is close to undetectable. When getting these lashes applied be sure not to go more than a third longer than your current lashes as the weight on a daily basis could be to much and cause damage to your real lashes.
