COMMON SKIN
PROBLEMS
– COMMON SKIN CONDITIONS AND SIMPLE SOLUTIONS –
We will all experience a number of skin conditions throughout our lifetime. Skin conditions can change based on age, hormonal changes such as pregnancy and menopause, exposure to environmental factors such as pollution or smoking and even stress. Undergoing aesthetic procedures can also have an effect on your skin.
VIVIER PRODUCTS ARE DESIGNED TO HELP
YOU HAVE BEAUTIFUL SKIN AT ANY AGE
AGING SKIN
CAUSE
There are numerous factors that lead to aging skin. Environmental factors such as sun, pollution, smoking and internal factors such as hormonal shifts and metabolic slow down exacerbate the aging process. Naturally, our cell cycle, or the rate at which our skin cells rise to the surface of our skin, slows down. This leads to dull skin as our dead skin cells pile up on the surface of our skin. Our grenz zone flattens, so we are not able to feed a healthy epidermis. This leads to further dullness and thinning of the epidermis. Our ability to produce and protect our collagen decreases, breaking down our dermal layer which provides the structure and strength of our skin.

SOLUTION
Vitamin C and Retinol are the first line of defense to improve the appearance of aging skin. Sunscreen filters, on the other hand, are necessary to prevent further damage.
THIN SKIN
CAUSE 
As we age, the rate at which our skin cells cycle to the surface of our skin and slough off greatly declines. Also, we lose the communication and connectivity between the different layers of our skin that help feed a healthy epidermis. This, along with over exfoliation over long periods of time and decreased collagen production can thin out our skin.

SOLUTION
It is important to protect your skin with a Vivier Vitamin C serum and sunscreen. Polyamines are essential to improve the appearance of thin skin as they help increase the efficiency at which our skin cells and cell dynamics work, allowing the skin to come back to its original and youthful state. 
HYPERPIGMENTATION
CAUSE
Sun exposure and hormonal fluctuations produce an abnormal amount of melanin, which is responsible for skin pigment, causing unwanted sun spots, age spots and uneven skin tone.

SOLUTION
Hyperpigmentation needs to be addressed by limiting the amount of excess melanin produced and by sloughing off the existing dark spots that have accumulated on the surface of the skin. Melanin production can be limited with Hydroquinone, Arbutin and Vitamin C. Retinol and AHAs will help slough off the existing pigmentation and help resurface the skin.

IMPORTANT
To prevent, maintain, and correct hyperpigmentation, use a Vivier Vitamin C serum and sunscreen to protect your skin from what caused the hyperpigmentation in the first place.
NO MATTER YOUR SKIN CONDITION, WE HAVE THE
RIGHT SOLUTION FOR YOU.
REACTIVE SKIN
CAUSE
Reactive skin occurs when skin has a compromised skin barrier and environmental aggressors (sun, wind, cold) or pathogens (pollution, harsh topical products) get into the skin and create inflammation that make the skin very sensitive.

SOLUTION
Especially with reactive skin, it is important to use products that are pharmaceutical grade, made from pure ingredients. Hydrating the skin with hyaluronic acid and using an emollient to create a protective moisture barrier are most beneficial. Hexamidine is also an excellent ingredient to help calm reactive skin. HEXAM™, HydraGel Advanced B5+ Complex and LEXXEL™ are excellent solutions for reactive skin. 
ACNE
CAUSE
Excess oil, or sebum, gets trapped in the pores or sebaceous glands and produces inflammatory fatty acids that visibly clog pores and lead to acne.

SOLUTION
Regular exfoliation and cleansing with Hexamidine and Salicylic Acid are essential to ensure nothing blocks the pores. Using Benzoyl Peroxide to clean out the pores and prevent acne from forming is also beneficial.
HYPERTROPHIC SCARRING
CAUSE
A hypertrophic, or raised scar, occurs when the healing process of the skin is overactive. This leads to water escaping the skin, causing dehydration. This sparks a response to overcompensate and create collagen. When too much collagen is produced a hypertrophic scar can form. In addition, an enzyme (called tTGase) is responsible for controlling the healing cascade and monitoring when and how to create collagen. When this enzyme is overactive (which is completely random), excess amounts of collagen are produced and a hypertrophic scar is formed.

SOLUTION
For years the go-to ingredient has been to use silicone which creates a barrier to prevent dehydration. Polyamines present an advancement in scar prevention as they effectively target the source by inhibiting the enzyme that causes a hypertrophic scar.
