Needle free filler?!? OMG yes yes yes!! Meet Sculplla!

Hello beauties!

Have you ever dreamed of the amazing plumped up results of a filler like Sculptra or Juvederm but just can't take the needles or costly maintenance? Well, do I have something for you!!

Gregory Dylan Skincare - Sculplla - Needle free filler

I came across this article by Katie Becker from Harper's Bazaar a bit ago... It's about Georgia Louise, celebrity Esthetician and her famous facials that include a non-invasive filler treatment called Sculplla. As you can imagine I was immediately obsessed and had to find out how to get this for myself and to use on my clients at my skincare studio!

Well my lovelies, I have found it!! YES!! I will be offering the amazing anti-aging Sculplla treatment at Gregory Dylan Skincare and Beauty in West Hollywood! I'm so excited for all of my clients to experience this fantastic technology. And the best part is, the key active ingredient in Sculplla is Poly L Lactic Acid, the same ingredient found in the superstar injectable filler, Sculptra. The results are so impressive and visible after just one treatment and last for weeks. Do a series of 3 over 3 weeks and results last up to 5 months!!

I will be posting some before and after photos on my Instagram and Facebook pages, so be sure and follow me!! And definitely check out the Harper's Bazaar article and see why this is such a celebrity skincare must-have!

Big hugs and keep it beautiful!

xoxo,

Gregory

November Ready!!

Hello gang!! This year is going by soo fast, I can’t believe it’s already November?! The holidays are so close and its time to switch that beauty routine! When seasons change we all want to make some small tweaks to our makeup and skincare to transition from fall to winter. Here are a few things you can try to switch up this cold season:

1.  Switch Foundations. Around this time of the year it is nice to switch your dewy foundation to matte foundations, powder formulas, mattifying primers. In the cooler months try to go for a cooler foundation rather than a warmer tone that may be too tan.

2.  Different Lip Care. We usually neglect our lips during the warmer months but we have to pay extra attention to them during the colder seasons. Cool air can cause more chapping and that is no good when you are trying to wear matte lipsticks!! One of my personal favorite lip balms is Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve.

3. Add Oil. Light-weight and oil free moisturizers is what many avoid during the heat but with the cold weather it is nice to switch to a heavier moisturizer or even an oil! It depends on every skin type if oil can be used, if it works for you it will make your skin feel so hydrated!! Make sure to use some oil on your hair and body as well to keep it moisturized!!

4.  Play with red. Who doesn’t love nude and blush shades, but during the cold season is fun to play with different shades of red. Maybe a maroon sweater, a vampy lip color, or a burgundy manicure like Essie Wicked. Red comes in so many shades and this is the time switch it up!!

Those are a few things to change as winter approaches!! What are some things you do differently during the cold seasons? Let me know in the comments!

Remember… Keep it beautiful!!

XOXO

GYM TIME SKINCARE TIPS!

It is the last weekend of summer but that does not mean we should stop working out!! We can all stay active even during the cold seasons. Working out can really help improve your skin but going to the gym can affect your skin. Think about it…. How many people use the gym every day?! When you go to the gym you are constantly touching the machines or the weights! Your hands will be full of bacteria then you may touch your face, making it easier for you to breakout. Today I will give a few gym skin care tips to help prevent and improve your skin when you work out at the gym!!

1. REHYDRATE. When you work out it is very important to stay hydrated since your skin loses water with sweat. Your skin can become dehydrated causing dead skin cells to accumulate and clogged pores. Bring a water bottle to your workout and remember to drink water throughout your workout. 

2. KEEP YOUR HAIR UP. If you have long hair you should pull it back away from your face. Make sure to always have in your car or gym bag a headband or hair tie. Keeping your hair out of your forehead will prevent breakouts.

3.  DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE. It may be hard to realize but when you workout you may be touching your face frequently and this can transfer bacteria from your hands onto your face. Another thing you need when going to the gym is a small towel to absorb the sweat from your face. Also, to wash this towel every time you use it!

4. WASH YOUR HANDS. It is clear bacteria can be found all over the gym that is why you need to wash your hands with soap! Use hand sanitizer to wipe down your machine before and after you use it. Don’t forget to wash your hands after you use the bathroom and after your workout. 

5. WASH YOUR FACE. When you are done with your workout you need to wash your face with a gentle cleanser! When you are done do not rub your skin with your towel, instead, gently pat dry. Exercising causes your blood circulation to increase, making your skin more sensitive. And don't forget to follow up wth your skincare!

6. CHANGE CLOTHES ASAP. After your workout you need to change out of your sweaty clothes. You will sweat and all of your toxins come out and get into your clothes. Wearing dirty sweaty clothes your body can get clogged, leading to body acne. Make sure to shower and change into clean clothes to prevent this.

7. NO HOT SHOWERS. I know when you are done with a workout a hot shower feels amazing but you should reconsider. A hot shower can strip your skin of all the natural oils, leaving your skin dry and itchy. My suggestion is to take a short shower with lukewarm water.

8. MOISTURIZER. We all know your skin needs to be hydrated that is why using a moisturizer after washing your face and body is a must! If you have oily skin use a moisturizer that is oil-free. If your skin is sensitive or more acne prone, it is important to take the extra steps to protect your skin, especially after using you workout at the gym. Proper skincare will manage your acne and prevent it!

Enjoy the last weekend of summer and make sure to continue to stay active! Your skin will thank you.

Don't forget to like, comment and subscribe! Lots of HUGS to you all and keep it beautiful!

XOXO,

Gregory

Let your skin breathe!!

Summer is closer than ever which means beach days, pool parties, lounging with friends is right around the corner!! It is time to get ready and be your best beautiful self this summer. It is important to remember your skin needs to breathe especially during the summer heat. That is why I always recommend to not use anything too heavy or creamy for summer. Instead take advantage of this time to help any congestion you may have with a deep-cleansing mud mask. Incorporating this to your skincare regimen twice a week will allow to help draw out impurities and detoxify the skin. One of my personal favorites and budget friendly is Freeman Feeling Beautiful Clay Mask, Avocado & Oatmeal.

This clay mask is a must-have since it is gentle but effective. It will act as a vacuum and soak up all the traces of dirt and grease! Make sure to follow up with a gentle moisturizer at night or sunblock during the day!!

Remember… Keep it beautiful!!

XOXO

Great read on Cleansing Oils!

Found this on the HuffP (one of my fave news sources, obvi) and thought I would share it! I LOVE cleansing oils and oil-based cleansing balms. My oily-skinned clients are always baffled when I suggest them, lol. You see, oil cuts oil. Good, nourishing oils in a cleanser actually break down bad oil and dirt on the skin, leaving a super smooth and soft complexion. 

This is a great addition for anyone oily-skinned that is using primarily oil-free skincare to create a better balance in the skin. All oil free will dry your surface and tell your oil glands to kick it into high gear, so balance is key!

Dryer skins will love the softness and suppleness of this comfy type of cleanser!

Have you tried any cleansing oils?! I picked up a snazzy oil cleanser in Korea once that I loved. And the Rodial Glamtox Cleanser is an oil based balm that I ADORE!
