Ask Dr. Brown, Fall 2018

373640RéVive Skincare, Renessence Haircare and Bays Beauty Boutique founder Dr. Gregory Bays Brown fields your questions and shares his thoughts regarding the state of skincare, hair care and beauty in our quarterly ‘Ask Dr. Brown’ blog series. His latest installment addresses skincare and hair care for the fall season and its cooler temperatures.

Dr. Brown, what is the first thing I should do for my skin now that fall is officially here?
Evaluate its current condition. Are you dry? Oily? Blotchy? When seasons change, typically your skin does as well. If your skin has appeared normal all throughout the summer, a sudden onslaught of cold weather can turn you dry very quickly. If you’re typically oily the new season may make your skin a bit more normal. That stated, don’t be afraid to change up your regimen to meet your skin’s changing needs. For instance those of you who use our RéVive Sensitive Oil Free Lotion may need to switch to the more hydrating formulas found in our Moisturizing Renewal Cream Day SPF 15 or Sensitif Renewal Cream SPF 30And if you’re not sure what you may need/want to change, please come by and consult our Product Specialist Dena Seng at 709 East Market Street in NuLu, or phone 502.413.0256.

You’re a huge advocate for the use of products that contain sunscreen year-round, what are your recommendations for fall?
I’ve said it many times before, but it bears repeating: just because the sun and temperatures outside aren’t scorching as they were this past summer, skincare products that contain sunscreen protection are an absolute must in autumn (and of course winter, spring, summer), even on cool, cloudy days. My RéVive recommendations:

Your hair care line Renessence has been referenced as ‘like skincare for your hair’. How does it work and what are your recommendations for amazing looking autumn hair?
As you assess your skin condition and determine its needs, you should do the same for your hair. First off eliminate months of heavy summer treatments, volumizers, you name it, from your hair and scalp by gently cleansing with a rejuvenating shampoo free of parabens and harsh sulfates. Our Renessence Follicle Forever Strengthening Shampoo is a daily cleanser that removes harmful debris – dead cells, oil, sebum, product buildup – which strangles the follicle and leads to unhealthy hair. Its unique blend of ingredients anchors the follicle for stronger hair with less thinning and shedding, along with a renewed, healthier scalp. And just as It’s essential for your skin to be properly hydrated for a healthy, glowing complexion, your hair requires moisturizing on a regular basis too. With the change in temperatures outside, coupled with heated air inside, hair is vulnerable to these outdoor/indoor environmental variations, often resulting in drier hair and an itchy scalp. To ensure it stays healthy, soft and supple, our Follicle Forever Thickening Conditioner is a volumizing moisturizer that renews dry, dull strands as it delivers sensational shine and manageability. And last but certainly not least, Renessence Follicle Forever Renewal Serum works at the molecular level to stimulate dormant and/or dying follicles for immediate renewal and rejuvenation. The result: resurrection and maintenance of healthy hair growth.
