You just wake up, you go brush you teeth, and what’s the first thing you see? Yes, again! Mr Pimple just came for another visit! Sadly, acne is one of the biggest beauty downer.
According to the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology, 54 percent of women older than age 25 have some facial acne.
Most acne treatments leaves your skin dry, red and sensible.
At Sparkle, we approach acne differently. We use ingredients that calm inflammation, rebuilt the epidermis and restore skin health instead of creating more inflammation.
Like all our services, we treat from the inside out.
What Cause Acne?
Hormonal changes, whether they occur in adolescence or adulthood, are a breeding ground for the onset or aggravation of acne. An imbalance between estrogen and progesterone levels, among other things, accentuates the appearance of the sign of acne.
Skincare & Cosmetic Products
Some facial and hair products and makeup can promote acne, especially when they contain oily ingredients, such as silicon or are not suited to your skin type.
Nutrition & Lifestyle
When combined with other factors like food and stress, it may promote the appearance of the signs of acne.
Although heredity is not considered to be the only factor explaining the onset of acne, it plays an important role in it. Indeed, the risk of suffering from acne is five times higher when both parents have also been affected.

Discover our amazing clients results
When nothing else worked!
Last week, I posted one of our acne results and did a post on the difference between medical grade and over the counter skin care.
This amazing young lady reached out late Saturday and I decided to meet her during a break from my paperwork day last Sunday!
Her case is typical, she tried everything and nothing worked! She was sick of spending her hard earned money into products that were at most, not doing anything.. Some even made it worst!
I asked her to trust me on ONE thing… “Let’s calm the inflammation and you’ll see wonders!”. Wich she agreed on!
Today’s, she sent me those selfies! Yay!! 💪
Next steps! Let’s rebuilt this epiderm.
Most acne treatment involve drying your skin and over exfoliation. Please stop… Those products are adding even more inflammation! Your skin is telling you something!! Your skin is a protection organ!
Vulnerable post, hello 🙋🏻♀️
Never ever would I have thought i’d be posting a before and after of my skin. This is from the girl who would never walk out of the house without a bit of makeup on to cover up the acne and scarring.
This, my friends, is what a good skin care routine can do when you’re committed to it.
The before pictures are from June 2019, before I started working at Sparkle Lifestyle & MediSpa where the girls immediately recommended Osmosis, Vivier and Bend Skincare (here is where I tell you to absolutely check these brands for any kind of skin concerns !!!!!). One of the pictures was me on a bad day, and the other was when I felt my skin was “clear”, but was really full of post inflammation hyperpigmentation (scarring).
The bottom pictures are from yesterday morning, when I went to work with no makeup for the first time! I also received a microneedling treatment and holy moly did it ever help diminish my pore size.
So, do your research before starting a new skin care line. A lot of times what you think your skin needs is actually the complete opposite of what it really wants. And sometimes its as simple as drinking lots of water, cutting something out of your diet, changing your pillow case and washing your makeup brushes more frequently!
If you have any questions about skincare, feel free to message me and I can try to help or send you in the right direction 😉
