Should I exfoliate if I am showing signs of rosacea? 

Rosacea sufferers do experience skin cell turn over more quickly than average, sometimes resulting in dry, flaky skin. The lack of skin oils to moisten and soften your skin can further contribute to this. It is so important not to over exfoliate when experiencing, so recommended use is only 1 time per week and mix with Pure Start "Gentle Detoxifying Facial Cleanser" to create a gentle experience. 

Recently I have noticed darkness and puffiness under my eyes. I have tried concealer, but nothing seems to help. Do you have any suggestions?

We all experience darkness and puffiness under the eye area at times, so we can certainly relate to your frustration! Darkness and puffiness can be caused by many things; poor circulation, hereditary factors or just plain exhaustion. GOLDFADEN MD has formulated a triple action powerhouse, Bright Eyes, to fight the three main concerns under the eyes: darkness, puffiness and fine lines. Soy peptides, Arnica, Vitamin K, and Pulverized Mica work to visibly brighten the under eye area for the ultimate improvement in the appearance of darkness, puffiness and fine lines. 

My skin tone seems so dull lately. What can I do to obtain that youthful glow again?  

EXFOLIATION! Try using Doctor's Scrub, a crystal microderm exfoliator, to take away all of the dead skin cells, dirt and excess makeup piling on the top of your skin. By exfoliating away all those dead skin cells, your skin is able to absorb a serum more effectively which ultimately leads to a brighter, more youtful glow. Post exfoliation, follow with a serum, we suggest Radical Difference, an advanced anti-oxidant serum, made with Cherry Extract, Red Tea Extract and Hyaluronic Acid that provides a glowing result.
