Skin Fact: Your skin is acidic!

The acidic environment created by our skin is our first line of defense against environmental dangers. The "acid mantle" is a protective layer on our skin that is made up of natural oils from our sebaceous glands and amino acids and lactic acid from our sweat glands. Maintaining the correct pH balance is essential to minimizing problems with eczema, psoriasis, chronic dry skin and other common skin problems.

Epidermal Growth Factors

Epidermal Growth Factors are proteins that play an essential role in wound healing through stimulating epidermal and dermal regeneration.

Using an Epidermal Growth Factor is a great way to accelerates tissue growth, especially when dealing with acne skins. Often times we are treating lesions with ingredients like Salicylic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide, Sulfur, Resorcinol, and Retinols which cause exfoliation on the skin. Incorporating a Growth Factor is going to aid in the renewal process by nourishing and rebuilding the new cells, to support healing the wound.

At Plum Natural Nail and Skin Spa, we exclusively use Rhonda Allison cosmeceuticals. Their Growth Factor Gel is targeted for oily and acne skin types. The consistency is lighter than a cream and absorbs into the skin quickly, instantly soothing inflamed and irritated skin. Additionally, this product is very hydrating and can be a great daily moisturizer and protector. Because of these items, our Growth Factor Gel is ideal in any acne program. A simple, yet result-driven, acne regimen incorporating this could consist of the Beta Green Tea Cleanser, Blemish Serum, and Growth Factor Gel.
