Sleep Your Way to Healthier-Looking Skin

Waking up to beautiful-looking skin is not a dream. Adequate sleep is vital for skin health. It’s a dynamic time when your body and mind rebalance. Sleep loss can lead to dull-looking skin, dark circles under the eyes, and eventually fine lines. Knowing the body repairs itself and builds up energy for the next day during deep sleep, that’s why I am such a strong advocate of the importance of quality sleep. It’s essential if you want to wake up looking and feeling refreshed.

Dermatology Treatments in Summer

dermatology treatments in summer

When summer arrives, many of us become suddenly aware of our skin’s imperfections. Time in the sun can be unequivocally therapeutic, but it also means more sun damage. Joyful hours in the sunshine can also come with sunspots, dull or uneven skin tone, sagginess, and fine lines and wrinkles. So are there dermatology treatments that allow you to revel in the summer sun and still treat your skin to keep it looking youthful, radiant and healthy all season? Absolutely. Just select a regimen of in-office dermatology treatments that pinpoint and treat the results of UV damage, as well as skincare treatments that treat and protect your skin from further harm.

The Oscars Best Beauty Looks

The days (and weeks) leading up to the Academy Awards are always a whirlwind around here. This year, Dr. Lancer treated and prepped 70 clients who were attending the Oscars, pre-parties and after-parties. Here are a few of our favorite beauty looks from Hollywood’s biggest night:

unnamed-12

Barely-there, natural makeup, teamed with beautiful skin was the definite winner in the beauty category at last night’s Academy Awards. Reese Witherspoon, Rosamund Pike and Marion Cotillard all chose a simple, pink lip paired with bold brows and a fresh, dewy glow for their walk down the red carpet. Our other favorite of the night Chrissy Teigen rocked a dark lip that popped against her flawless complexion. Nothing highlights a woman’s natural beauty more than skipping heavy makeup and letting her skin shine through.

But the ladies weren’t all we were obsessed with last night. The guys looked pretty gorgeous themselves. Our picks for Best Supporting Skin? Channing Tatum’s scruffy-meets-smooth look, Common’s polished perfection and Steve Carrell’s lovable – and handsome – mug.

Glowing Skin Hacks for the Day of a Big Event

Lancer - Skin Hacks full

The Oscars are this Sunday and although you may be watching from the comfort of your own couch rather than attending, there are plenty of skincare hacks you can steal from the stars for your own big days. On the day of a major event, you should take a three-pronged approach of activity, diet and skincare to prep:

Activity: Start the morning with light exercise for an energy boost, to increase blood circulation for a healthy glow, and to keep your metabolism active throughout the day.

Diet: Staying uber-hydrated and avoiding foods that cause bloating are key if you’ll be sliding in to a black tie dress and want your skin in tip-top shape. Things to avoid: salt, sugar, grains and alcohol. Fill up on lean protein, fresh veggies and healthy fats instead.

Skincare: In terms of topical skincare, don’t do anything aggressive that would strip or inflame the skin, such as using acids or drying agents. Instead, stick with pampering and hydrating products and treatments. A hydrating mask the night before a big event can do wonders!

How Stars Prep for the Oscars

Lancer - Oscar Prep edit

You already know many of the ways stars prep for awards season – with the Venus Legacy, stem cell facials, cleanses and months-long exercise regimes – but for the biggest red carpet of the year, it’s time to pull out the (really) big guns. Here are three cutting-edge treatments, two of which are exclusive to Lancer Dermatology, that harness the skin’s ability to self-repair. Nothing looks better on the red carpet than a natural glow, which is why we love these three non-invasive, filler-free treatments that will make anyone ready for the glow of the spotlight – whether it’s the Oscars or a real-life red carpet.

PicoWay
PicoWay is an innovative dual wavelength laser that fires one thousand times faster than the fastest laser currently available to the medical community. The ultra-fast picosecond bursts of energy transmitted to the tissue enable the laser to break up pigment more effectively and trigger the body’s own self-repair mechanisms. Dr. Lancer is the first dermatologist in the United States to have this laser in practice. His decision to use this technology is bolstered by the fact that the laser’s ability to trigger self-healing in the skin aligns perfectly with his anti-aging philosophy of stimulating healing self-repair.

Venus Viva
Venus Viva is a NanoFractional Radio Frequency machine that is designed to reduce pore size, correct textural irregularities, soften and diminish wrinkles, and tighten skin laxity, all with minimal downtime and discomfort. The machine uses consistent selectional dermal heating to achieve optimal, immediate and long term results. Dr. Lancer is the first dermatologist in the US to have this machine in his practice.

The Vampire Facial 
Technically known as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Microneedling, the “Vampire Facial” involves taking a patient’s blood, putting it in a centrifuge so that the plasma separates from the red blood cells, and then using a microneedling pen to aerate the skin, while applying the plasma topically. The needling stimulates the fibroblasts in the skin to speed up production of collagen, elastin and growth factor, giving skin an amazing glow. This treatment also corrects fine lines, pigmentation, and topical scars. It is ideal to have in adjunct to regular use of The Method because it employs the same science, the skin’s ability to self-repair.

The Grammys’ Bare-Faced Beauties

LANCERG2015

Sam Smith may have swept the Grammy Awards last night, but barely-there makeup and glowing skin swept the red carpet. Beyonce, Chrissy Teigen, Ciara, Rihanna, Gwen Stefani and Charlie XCX all rocked natural looks featuring nude lips, subtly rosy cheeks and simple eye makeup framed by bold brows.

The key to making this look work is, of course, flawless skin. In a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, beauty insiders discussed this movement toward the I-woke-up-like-this look. “A lot of women now are taking care of their skin so they don’t have to rely on makeup,” Daniel Martin, a celebrity makeup artist for Dior, told the Wall Street Journal. “For them, it’s a reallocation of time and money. They are spending more on an evening skin-care regimen and facials, and less on a morning makeup routine.

Emily Weiss, of the popular beauty blog Into the Gloss, agrees: “Having great skin allows you to ‘just wake up like this’. The better your skin, the less makeup you have to wear.”

So where do you begin to get red carpet-worthy glowing skin? Start from the inside out with a regimen of morning green juices and diet of lean protein and veggies (skip the carbs, sugar and salt). Add in light, daily exercise to get your blood circulating. Combine with daily use of The Method plus nightly use of our Lift Serum Intense and Intensive Night Treatment to amp up moisture for a fresh, dewy look.
