What are the benefits of exfoliation or Acne, Dehydration, Aging, and Pigmentation skin types?
The concept of stimulating the skin by exfoliation is not a new concept. It is one of the oldest skin treatments developed and over the years different implements and ingredients have been used to exfoliate.
Hydroxy Acids is one of the popular method for exfoliation. The era of Hydroxy Acids began in the 1990’s when there was a surge of popularity for their beneficial effects on skin, they were actually discovered in the early 1970’s. When doctors found that certain naturally-occurring nontoxic substances called Alpha Hydroxy Acids, found in edible fruits and vegetables, had profound beneficial effects on the skin.
For Acne Skin: We know that there is an overproduction of sebum and dead cells that binds together in the follicle causing a blockage. This is retained further because in acne skin, there is less of the enzyme cholesterol sulfatase due to fewer lamellar granules. It is the lamellar granules that stimulate the enzyme to dissolve the NMF, allowing the cells to detach. Creating a condition known as Retention Hyperkeratosis. Hydroxy Acids mimic the enzymes in lamellar granules, dissolve the NMF and allow the cells to detach therefore clearing the congestion in the follicle. They will also dissolve the desmosome protein linkages causing a burst in skin exfoliation.
For Dehydration Skin: Lack of moisture in the Stratum Corneum leads to gaps in the cellular barrier. Moisture evaporates from below, which then leads to a dehydrated skin. Clients attempt to overcome this by over-moisturizing which is literally sticking the old cells down and this leads to a dull, uneven skin texture. Hydroxy Acids will take off the old cells and stimulate new cells full of moisture to be brought to the surface.
For Aging Skin: Cell production slows down as we age. So as the journey from the Stratum Germinativum to the Stratum Corneum takes longer, it means the cells are retained on the surface for a longer period of time getting drier and duller. Epidermal renewal varies from 12-19 days (teens) to 28-35 days (mid-life) and up to 90 days in maturity.
For Pigmentation Skin: Hydroxy Acids will shed the pigmented cells more quickly, so they are great combined with ingredients that suppress the melanin production such as Bearberry, Mulberry Extract, Kiwi, Phytic Acid and Licorice. Lactic Acid at a 5% is also a tyrosinase inhibitor.
I have been going to Lien for years on and off, she is the best and so sweet and knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to deciding what lash to go with that will look nice specifically for you. They always look so beautiful and I always receive compliments from strangers for my lashes. I always recommend Love Skin Care with Lienread more
it’s been 5 years since my last review for love skin care so i thought it time to update it. i have been going to Lien since like 2013 to get lashes done and every time since then the lashes turn out so good. Lien is super accommodating and it is SO easy to make an appointment through text. regarding covid-19, Lien is very clean and the bed thing you
lay down on has fresh paper on top, the same kind they use at the doctors office when you sit on the chair. Masks are required and she washes her hands thoroughly before starting. i will say that sometimes there is a little wait from the beginning of your appointment time but it’s not an issue for me, but plan accordingly.

LOVELOVELOVEEE. This was my first time getting eyelash extensions and I was taken care of by Amanda. I called to see if they were able to do a walk in and fortunately, they were. The location was a bit confusing to me at first considering I didn’t see any sign. BUT, as soon as I found it and went inside, the lobby was very clean and professional. Amanda greeted me and was very nice and sweet. She was also very accommodating with how I wanted my lashes and when she finished, it was RIGHT ON. During the process, she was so light handed that I didn’t feel a thing and was able to even fall asleep TWICE. Not only that, Amanda was also very informative with how to take care of my lash extensions. I’m definitely coming back and would recommend this place to anyone who’s interested in getting eyelash extensions. I love my eyelashes!read more
Love this place of course!!! Been coming to Lien for 10 years now. I never last past a month without my lashes. Simply the best and natural looking. Lien is the sweetest lady ever and would recommend her business to anyone!
Text or call ahead of time to schedule your first appointment. You won’t be disappointed 🙂read more
I’ve been going to Lien for years. I’ve tried other lash places but was never fully satisfied with the end result or the customer service. Lien provides outstanding customer service and is honest about which lash extensions she recommends for you. She will even recommend not continuing with lashes if she feels they are harming the ones you have. She provides high quality lashes, glue, and technique. Her hands are so light that I have fallen asleep many times. Many people have complimented on how nice my lashes are, and I always tell them they are not real and are extensions. I have recommended many friends and family and all have had good experiences. And to add to that her prices are reasonable. Try them out… You won’t be disappointed!read more
