What's the benefit of custom blending Bioelements products?

Every skin is different, down to its very cells. And what works for one person won't necessarily work for another. That's why Bioelements created a system of skin care, body care, hair care and makeup that can be freshly customized. With plant extracts, aromatherapy oils, trace minerals and high performance ingredients. Some to keep skin young; some to keep it clear; others to calm or balance. It's best to consult with a licensed esthetician in a salon, spa or medical office on what products to use. She can assess your skin, determine its oil production level and conditions, then customize products to meet your exact needs. Why settle for off-the-shelf products when you can have formulas created especially for your skin? Makes perfect sense, doesn't it?


I am beginning to see some sagging along my jaw line. What Bioelements products should I use?

As we age, the tissue along the jaw line can lose its elasticity, causing the skin to hang or stretch lower, creating what most call 'jowls.' You can stop this process by having a skin care professional custom blend a Bioelements Cleanser and Moisturizer for your Biotype with ingredients that can combat this problem. Bioelements Actives are laboratory-strength plant extracts and raw ingredients that can target specific skin needs when blended into your take-home products. Your skin care professional can custom blend in Firming Complex, which stimulates the skin into producing collagen and elastin to "tighten" the skin. Combined with the Active Age Fighter, which specifically targets skin cells that produce collagen and elastin and can increase skin firmness up to 21% with regular use, your custom blended product will combat your sagging jaw frustrations.


What can be done for fine lines and wrinkles on my face?

 Fine lines and wrinkles on the face are caused when the support structures of the skin begin to break down. This usually begins to happen in the early thirties and is caused primarily by damage from ultra violet rays. To help reduce the signs of aging use Bioelements Eye Area around the eyes. It contains 4% Alpha Hydroxy acids, which will exfoliate the skin, lessening the appearance of the lines. Recently the use of topical vitamins on the skin has produced dramatic results in reversing the signs of aging. Use Bioelements VitaMineral Power Pen, which contains vitamins A, C, D and E. These vitamins, when applied immediately after cleansing, will help reduce and may reverse the signs of aging.


How often should I have a facial?

 The skin cells take about 28 days to reach the surface [in optimum circumstances], so once a month it is beneficial to deep cleanse and remove impurities from the pores. Depending on your skin, it may be better to have an occasional longer, more intensive treatment according to your esthetician’s professional opinion. Your skin care expert can recommend the proper home care agenda as well as help you maintain your skin’s well-being.


What are the Benefits of having regular facials?

 The skin’s natural tendency is to heal itself in a fastidious manner, however, sometimes we must seek professional help in order to achieve maximum results. Things like hormones, stress and seasonal changes can bring on trouble that’s best addressed by a licensed professional. There are many Benefits to regular facials: Clearer skin is a natural result of professional exfoliating on a regular basis, and smoother, more moist and supple skin is a result of the professional massage that may be included in your facial. Skin learns to adjust more quickly to life’s stressors, and responds in a healthy manner. As you keep regular appointments with your esthetician, she will learn the cyclical changes that occur with your skin and will adjust and offer the correct products for you to use.


Do I really need to use a toner?

 Using a toner everyday is an important step in having healthy skin – don’t skip it! The purpose of toner is to restore the skin to its natural pH level [between 4.5 and 5.5], and to remove any traces of cleanser left behind. The skin will accept moisturizer more readily and easily if it’s prepared with a toner first. All skin types can benefit from the use of a good alcohol-free toner. [Try Bioelements Equalizer – an alcohol-free toner with herbal extracts to hydrate just-cleansed skin. To give your toner an extra boost, add Bioelements Rev-Up –to energize dull, sluggish skin – or add Calm Down – to soothe sensitized skin – to your Equalizer.]


Do I need to use an eye cream? Can my facial moisturizer work under and around my eyes just as well?

 All Bioelements moisturizers can be used around the eyes. However, do remember that the skin around the eye area is a lot different than the rest of the face. There are no oil glands there, so skin tends to get dry and lined. Also, the skin of the eye area is much thinner and can’t absorb heavier products. A separate eye cream can be used to solve specific problems around the eye such as fine lines and dark circles. Use one that has been specially formulated for the delicate area [try Bioelements Eye Area – an advanced eye cream with Alphablend™]


What causes my acne to flare up?

 Acne outbreaks are caused by the four “trigger factors”: excess oil, pore-clogging dead skin cells, acne bacteria and inflammation. Hormones prompt your oil glands to produce excess oil, provoking the skin cells in your pores to rapidly shed. When the pore becomes clogged by trapped oil and dead skin cells it creates a perfect breeding ground for irritating acne bacteria. As your skin tries to deal with the bacteria, it becomes inflamed, eventually causing a full-blown breakout. To stop this cycle from repeating itself over and over you need to control all four trigger factors. [Try Bioelements Acne Clearing System, created to target all four trigger factors!]


I have adult acne. Are there any options aside from using antibiotics or products such as Retin-A?

 Adult acne can be quite a challenge. It is recommended you visit a skin care specialist to have your skin properly assessed before using any products. The professional recommendation is to use a complete system of products rather than relying on one "miracle" acne product. This means using products that are all created to treat the causes of your acne and clear up the skin. The products in Bioelements Acne Clearing System: Spotless Cleanser, Active Astringent, AcnePlex, PorePlex and Amino Mask, work in conjunction with each other, 24 hours a day, to clear up existing acne blemishes, prevent future breakouts and heal the visible signs of past acne flare-ups.


Help! I get dry itchy patches on my skin. What can I do?

 Those dry, itchy red patches that occur on the skin are often from a condition known as eczema. Eczema can occur on almost any part of your body although it is typically on the face, neck, ankles, elbows and knees. The most important thing you can do for eczema is to stop scratching the skin. Scratching only makes it worse. Your best bet is to moisten the skin with lukewarm – not hot – water, gently pat dry, then immediately apply a hydrocortisone cream to reduce inflammation and lock in moisture (one to try is Bioelements Immediate Comfort with 1% hydrocortisone.) In addition, avoid contact with itchy things like wool or furry pets, or irritants like harsh chemicals and strong soap. If all of this fails to help, see a dermatologist who can prescribe medication to help alleviate your problem.


I love to lie in the sun. How can I protect my skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays?

 The sun is the number one reason why the skin ages. UVA rays penetrate deep into the skin and destroy the support structure of the skin, causing the surface to appear wrinkled. UVB rays affect the surface of the skin, and will cause the skin to burn. Multiple burns on the skin before the age of 18 will cause the skin to age dramatically in the 30’s,and will also increase the probability of developing skin cancer. To protect your skin from these conditions, always where a total sun block on your skin. We recommend Bioelements Year-Round Protector with SPF 30+, which will block both types of damaging rays. Try to stay out of the sun between the hours of 10 am and 3 pm when the sun is at its hottest and always wear a hat with a wide brim when in the sun.


Do I really need to use a mask? If so, why?

 Yes. Regular use of corrective facial masks keeps your skin toned, just like regular exercise keeps your body in shape. For best results, have your Bioelements esthetician create a customized facial mask personalized for your exact skin.


Does stress really affect my skin?

 Many experts say yes. That's why it's important to visit your skin care center regularly for destressing face and body treatments. It's an investment in your beauty and health.


What can be done for those annoying occasional breakouts on the face?

 Breakouts on the face can be caused by a number of different factors. The most common cause in women especially is hormonal imbalance, which will cause the skin to react by breaking out along the jaw line. This usually happens around the time of a woman’s menstrual cycle or in times of stress. The best thing to do is to apply a product which contains 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide to the areas that are affected. Bioelements Breakout Control is just the right product for the job. Apply it directly over the breakout, and you will see that the area will heal and dry within two to three days of use.


Why are my cheeks always red and sensitive?

 You may be suffering from a condition known as Rosacea. This condition is characterized by a pattern of redness that is permanently on the cheeks and sometimes the nose. The condition starts to appear in the early thirties and is more common in people who have had teenage acne. Rosacea is triggered to flare up by a number of different external factors such as alcohol, smoking, stress, weather conditions and diet. When the skin is experiencing a flare up, it can become very red, itchy and sometimes little pimples can appear. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you should see a dermatologist for diagnosis. Use gentle products on your skin for example Bioelements Moisture Positive Cleanser custom blended with Soothing Concentrate, and Capillary Antidote. Complete sun block is essential so use Bioelements Sun Diffusing Protector, which has SPF 15, or Bioelements Year-Round Protector with SPF 30+. To help with any dryness use Bioelements Crucial Moisture or Absolute Moisture and always have your skincare professional custom blend your products with Soothing Concentrate and Capillary Antidote. Lastly, use Bioelements Recovery Serum for dryness and dehydration.
