Dr Sebagh deep exfoliating mask

Posted in skincare with tags , , on July 26, 2008 by LPB

Exfoliating is a critical step in skin lightening and brightening, as we age the natural process of cell turnover slows down leaving skin duller, drier and less smooth. Deep Exfoliation Mask exfoliates the dead layers of the skin for faster cell turnover, reduces pigmentation, particularly useful for darker skinned patients with pigmented acne scars and melasma .

  • Exfoliates the dead layers of the skin for faster cell turnover.
  • Cleanses and exfoliates the pores.
  • Brightens and lightens pigmentation and acne scarring
  • Treats melasma 
  • The combination of azelaic & lactic acid in this potent mask is excellent in providing an instantly brighter, smoother  and more radiant skin. 
    Lactic acid & lysine are the 2nd & 3rd on the ingredients list!

    I  use the deep exfoliating mask for sensitive skin around my eyes & on my lips.
    The results are amazing; these 2 potent masks are my holy grail exfoliators at the moment.

    Chanel fly high palette

    I am obsessed with my fly high palette at the moment, the blusher really gives a flush & lift to my cheeks, the eye shadows are so flattering and illuminate the lids with subtle radiance.

    Coral lips

    Posted in makeup with tags , , on July 12, 2008 by LPB

    I like to wear coral lips with “bare” & “polished” face, coupled with a defining eye-lining, cutting edge short dark nails ; so chic, so upper east side. I liked Chanel candy glow gloss, rouge noir & Bobbi Brown long wearing eye lining gel.
