A skin rejuvenation program does not begin and end in the treatment room. Rhonda Allison Skin Peel Solutions are designed to work in conjunction with a pre-conditioning regimen, post-care and healthy maintenance daily skin regimen. The benefits and changes derived for the skin at a superficial, non-invasive level become a long-lasting and visual reversal of skin conditions and occur only with a total skin regimen.
Rhonda Allison offers many customized skin programs with cosmeceutical ingredients of the purest quality using the science of chirally to develop a regimen for you with total confidence that you are receiving exactly what your skin wants and needs. It is a disservice to peel the skin at any depth and not build it back up with pure, potent nutrients that include antioxidants and epidermal growth factor, or not be on the appropriate home care rejuvenators, proper cleansers and safe, effective sun protection.
Since pre-treating the skin may mean the difference to a successful chemical peel, enhance the results of your peel with a customized Rhonda Allison pre-peel regimen. While not every skin type will need the same preparation and each pre-treat regimen must be determined on an individual basis by your skin care professional, the prepping method may vary from person to person and even peel to peel. However, there are two basic steps you can follow to insure a successful prep.
The use of topical correctives may be one of the most important pre-treat steps for real skin changes, kick-starting the skin’s transformation by the use of such ingredients as lighteners and brighteners as found in Naturale Mega Brightening Serum, retinols in Retinol Supreme, and AHAs in Skin Smoothing Gel.
This is a must-do step. Many pre-treat correctives require the skin to be protected from UV rays and external aggressors. Under no circumstances should anyone get a chemical peel procedure with sun-burnt skin! Be sure to use a sun-block with an SPF 30 such as Daytime Defense SPF30 or a pure zinc base such as eZinc Protection Cream.
What Makes Rhonda Allison Sunscreen Exceptional?
We often think that SPF is only for the hot summer days and tend to forget how much the sun affects us in the winter and its ability to penetrate through the clouds.
Out of a serious need to have a healthy topical for her clientele to use following skin peel procedures, Rhonda Allison developed her own line of sun protection. The problem was common to anyone doing peels, Retin A, or any other resurfacing procedures – the skin reacted to many of the chemical sunscreen ingredients and even encountered severe contraindications from sunscreens, sun exposure, and peeled skin – the three were a serious detriment to skin.
When it comes to topicals that have healing potential, and yet protect skin safely from UV damage, Rhonda’s Daytime Defense SPF30 and eZinc Protection Cream are some of the healthiest, most effective sun protection creams on the market today. The continual research, discussions, and findings repeatedly support how safe and effective these topicals are.
Rhonda Allison’s Daytime Defense SPF 30, an ultra-refined complex, is a continuation of good skin care that gives your skin support from environmental pollution and free-radical damage; providing soothing, broad-spectrum moisture protection you will feel all day.
Rhonda’s eZinc Protection Cream is a formula that has been around for years, providing antioxidant support and an SPF of 18, without leaving the skin white or pasty. An excellent choice for anyone with more oily, environmentally stressed skin, eZinc Protection Cream is especially good for men, teens, or anyone needing a light, fast absorbing sun protection cream.
The Benefits of Zinc Oxide
Zinc oxide, found in both Daytime Defense SPF 30 and Zinc Protection Cream, is an inorganic compound which usually appears as a white powder and has been used safely (non-irritating to the skin) for hundreds of years as a topical agent, nearly insoluble in water. A natural mineral used to shield against the harmful effects of the sun by forming a protective physical barrier over the skin that stops harmful UV rays; provides excellent UVA-(type I and II) and UVB-blocking capability, giving a superb broad-spectrum protection as well as offering antimicrobial and non-sensitizing properties. An essential mineral that our bodies need for everyday living, zinc oxide is important in new cell production, healthy skin, nails and hair, and boosts the immune system.
A current concern for the cosmetics industry, particularly with the daily use of sunscreens in everyday products, is the sensitization of the skin by the various chemicals in formulations. Numerous studies have shown that Zinc Oxide does not cause sensitization. If zinc oxide reacts with the skin, it will be dissolved by the acidic pH of the skin and converted to Zn2+ ions. The body uses zinc in this form to carry out the body’s essential functions.
Traditionally, zinc oxide has been used to form thick, opaque paste-like sunscreens that provide good broad-spectrum protection, but are not aesthetically pleasing and leave messy marks if in contact with clothing. A new paradigm in mineral UVA and UVB protection used in Rhonda Allison’s sun protection formulas allows for a transparent zinc oxide dispersion. With new technology, a unique nanostructure has been created to reduce the refractive index of the micron sized particles.
- Zinc oxide has many health benefits as a natural, non-chemical or mineral UVA and UVB absorber.
- Ideal for markets where sensitization to UV absorbers is more likely, such as daily use and children’s cosmetics.
- The UV protection of zinc oxide reduces the UVA-induced free -radical production in the deeper layers of the skin.
SPF 30 not only adds to the health of skin, but it is an important final step to skin care – AND is the most appropriate SPF rating.
Studies over the years have shown that sunscreen with an SPF, or sun protection factor, of 30, blocks about 97 percent of ultraviolet rays. A rating of 15 means 93 percent of UV rays are blocked, and anything higher than 30 remains in the 97 or 98 percent range.
In 1999 the Food and Drug Administration recommended that sunscreens with an SPF higher than 30 be labeled “30+,” mostly to prevent people from developing a false sense of security that might lead them to spend more time in the sun.
Why do we not add other sunscreen ingredients – especially some of the new, approved FDA ingredients?
Rhonda Allison requires solid research. Much has been discussed about the rise of skin cancer and deficits of vitamin D – which many are suggesting come from the very product consumers use to protect their skin – SUNSCREEN!
The natural support of Rhonda Allison’s Daytime Defense SPF30 and eZinc Protection Cream make these topical finishers the number-one health support for skin, containing ingredients that consistently have been found to be a good choice for all skin, protecting against sunburn and other damage to the skin caused by ultraviolet light and other environmental stresses. What you use as your sunscreen is critical!
Sun Safe Tips For Better Health
- Before applying Daytime Defense SPF30, use a Rhonda Allison Antioxidant – Antioxidant Complex Serum, MVC Serum, Grape Seed Hydrating Serum, Growth Factor Serum Plus, or Sea Gems. It has been found that additional topical antioxidants reduce sun damage and free radicals while providing healthy support for the skin.
- Recommend that your client takes additional supplements of antioxidants prior to outdoor activities and vitamin D during the winter months when there is less sunlight. Recent findings show that women over the age of 50 have a deficit of vitamin D; recommend 400 IUs daily.
- Using Daytime Defense SPF30 and eZinc Protection Cream is a safe, effective way to support skin and prevent sun damage and reduce further exposure; it is an extension of good skin care. It may be used as an additional moisture cream, mixed with powdered foundations, or added to other moisturizers.
- For All Skin Types – Daytime Defense SPF30 is suited for all skin types especially when going through resurfacing procedures. Variations for use maybe another moisturizer applied prior to Daytime Defense, mixing eZinc Protection Cream or Aloe Matte Moisture Cream with Daytime Defense, or placing a few drops of Hyaluronic Serum in SPF30 for someone who wants more moisture.
