ROSACEA is a skin disorder that mostly affects the nose and cheeks (sometimes forehead and chin). It’s characterized by redness, telangiectasia (spider veins), and sometimes papules or pustules (mistaken for pimples). It’s important not to treat or misdiagnose rosacea as acne, perioral dermatitis, seborrhea dermatitis, or lupus. ★ Swipe to find out how I successfully treat rosacea using Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). *Image used with patient’s permission. #rosacea#skinhealth#tcm#Lanshin

Do you know the correct way to use sunscreen? Simply applying it isn’t enough! ☀️PRODUCTS IN VIDEO: • @EltaMDskincare UV Pure Broad Spectrum (SPF 47) - I used a very white, pasty formula on purpose for this demo! • @ColoreScience Sunforgettable SPF Powder - #waterresistant and “reef-safe.” It’s portable and perfect for #reapplication over makeup! • @BaboBotanicals Tinted Mineral Sunscreen Stick (SPF 50) - Also portable, a nice alternative to powder. ☀️A NOTE ABOUT INGREDIENTS. A couple of the products that I used contain #silicones. I’m not opposed to silicones in #sunscreen because they‘re generally safe and inert at these levels. More importantly, they’re effective in helping the active sunscreen compounds resist water, spread evenly, and adhere to your skin (i.e. stay on)... All key for proper protection! I also use sunscreens without silicones if I don’t plan to be sweating a lot or in the water. ☀️If your skin is sensitive or reactive to sunscreen, click the #linkinbio for my latest blog post discussing other ways to protect yourself from strong summer sun!

I have SO much to say about sun protection! I’ll start with a breakdown of my favorite SPF’s + thoughts on ingredients. ☀️ DAILY WEAR - less skin congesting: ★ @JoshRosebrook Tinted Day Cream (SPF 30) moisturizing, beautiful finish, ideal under makeup. Great for dry skin + climate. ★ @marieveronique_ Everyday Coverage (SPF 30) tinted block delivers strong coverage, slightly matte finish/color, similar to light foundation. Good for oily or acne-prone skin. ★ @mychellebeauty Liquid (SPF 50) high SPF for summer, light finish! ☀️ HARDCORE PROTECTION - waterproof: ★ @eltamdskincare experts in sun protection; Dermatologist favorite. My must-haves for vacay: UV Elements Broad-Spectrum (SPF 44) - face, UV Pure Broad-Spectrum (SPF 47) - face/body. ★ @babobotanicals Tinted Mineral Stick (SPF 50) easy on-the-go, applies smoothly, smells delish. ★ @BadgerBalm Clear Zinc Oxide Sport (SPF 35) white but absorbs clear, not too sticky. No white residue = nice option for darker skin tones! ☀️ INGREDIENTS - 2 basic types, “mineral” + “chemical.” ★ I prefer mineral #sunblock with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. Often thicker, may leave white residue, but SAFE + less problematic for sensitive skin. ★ White residue from mineral sunscreen can be frustrating on darker skin, tinted screens are often still too light. A great tip I heard is to add @isdinusa skin drops to SPF in an effort to match individual skin color. (If you’ve tried, pls comment your experience!) ★ Chemical #sunscreens are more lightweight, less likely to cause skin congestion or leave white residue. BUT studies show that some of the chemicals create environmental damage. Some research also raises viable concerns about endocrine disruption, but I have yet to read conclusive studies. Personally, still enough for me to avoid them in favor of other protection: mineral block, shade, hats, #UPF clothing, sun protective foods. ☀️ NO SUNBLOCK LASTS ALL DAY - MUST REAPPLY every 2 hrs (more at beach/in water) to avoid longterm skin damage. Higher SPF’s (80-100) do NOT last longer! ★ I’d LOVE to hear your favorite #SPF’s and sun protections! Please the brand below and be sure to include your skin type + tone! ★ #Lanshin

📹 @01see_tv 🍉 Not all foods are written about in Chinese Medicine books, but watermelon IS! That’s because of it's #adaptogenic capability to rapidly hydrate the body while at the same time relieve fluid-swelling caused by heat and humidity. ☀️ Seasonal issues caused by heat include breakouts, dehydration, heat rash, heat stroke, irritability, swollen hands/feet, and headaches. Watermelon helps provide relief by regenerating vital internal fluids; It’s basically a natural coolant! 🍉To really benefit from ALL of watermelon’s healing properties, you need to tap into the edible white rind where many of the nutrients and benefits are found... It’s low in calories and high in Vitamins A, C, B6, Potassium, and Zinc, as well as antioxidants and fiber! (I don’t personally enjoy the rind on its own so I use it in a smoothie or blend it with the pink flesh and a squeeze of lime.) 🍉 For dehydration, it’s not enough to focus on drinking water, it’s important to eat high-water content fruits. Fruit delivers fluid to your system in a perfect, naturally-engineered package, complete with nutrients and minerals infused with the sun’s energy. 🍉 Watermelon can be especially helpful if you've done too much exercise (or too much day-drinking). Either way, as we approach the height of summer temps, I recommend treating yourself to nature's sweet medicine! 🍉🍉🍉 #watermelon#asmr#tcm#Lanshin

Facial Gua Sha is one of the ways Traditional Chinese Medicine treats acne and pimples, topically. Practiced on a regular basis (~3 times/wk), it promotes healing and can reduce the lifecycle, size, and redness of breakouts. I get a LOT of questions about ACNE, so I’m sharing what I recommend for patients to make Gua Sha even more of a breakout-buster: ★ AVOID Gua Sha on open pimples, or cover them with a patch like @cosrx Master Patch! ★ WARM your Gua Sha tool in hot water. Heat activates CIRCULATION, which helps disperse congestion and speed up healing. NEVER use a hot Gua Sha tool on your face without checking the temp on your inner wrist first! ★ Spend more time on areas that are broken-out (approx 5-10 more strokes). But again, avoid or cover open skin. ★ In our Brooklyn studio, we use acupuncture and hot Gua Sha in facials to treat acne, together with our TCM-based method for extracting and draining pimples. ★ Chronic or severe acne may require TCM dermatology treatment by a *professional herbalist* creating a custom formula based on your unique medical history and symptoms. Healing acne with TCM can take 4-6 months on average, longer if very severe. ★ Check out our #MUGGING IG story highlight for another fave trick! 🔑 Only 3 spots left for my @OmegaInstitute workshop, JUNE 21st!

Picking your pimples might be making your skin look worse than it actually is.
🌸
Picking your pimples might be making your skin look worse than it actually is. 🌸 In the spirit of Spring Beauty, I challenge you to stop picking your face for 1 month! Skin needs time to heal... Give your skin peace and it will give you peace. HOW? ★ Take your skincare routine into the kitchen and away from the bathroom mirror (the “danger zone”). ★ Do gentle Gua Sha with a heated tool over the breakout as long as skin is not broken. ★ Then, put a dot on it. Try @Cosrx or a similar acne spot sticker. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you tried to quit picking? Let me know your experiences and thoughts below! 💙 Collage Artist @luspider#acne#skincare#skincareroutine#Lanshin

How many days of herbal medicine are in the bag?

One.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How many days of herbal medicine are in the bag? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It cooks down to 1 cup of tea per day. It’s a power brew made from nature’s strongest plants with properties that (when used by a trained herbalist) can restore good, healthy function in a body - in this case, skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The herbs you see here represent those commonly found in a #TCM herbal formula for healing #acne. Now you’re wondering, where can I get them? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Answer: only from a trained Chinese herbalist. For your well-being and safety, please never take herbal medicine or advice from anyone untrained. Herbal medicine is powerful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I bet you’re wondering, which herbs are best for acne? My answer: I don’t know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All acne is not created equal. What helps one person may not help another. TCM is a highly customized medicine that is effective because we match the herbs to YOU. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So the question should be rephrased: which herbs are right for MY acne? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My answer: I need to see and feel your skin. I need information from you - everything from your history of acne meds, to how regular your cycle is, to how well do you poop? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ TCM acne healing is a process that only a trained TCM practitioner can guide you through. To find a practitioner in your area, please check the (worldwide) registry of approved practitioners trained under #MazinAlKhafaji, TCM skin healing guru (@dermatology_m) via tcmdermatology.org ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ xo, @sandra_lanshin
