Post-Inflammatory Erythema

How to Choose the Right Skincare for Your Clients Based on Genetics


Have you ever had a client that for some reason, just doesn’t respond to the products and treatments you offer, even though they were supposed to be right for their skin type?

Though this scenario might not happen all the time, it certainly does happen; and it is both confusing and upsetting for both the client and the aesthetician when it does happen. The simple reason why this happens is that for whatever reason, the skincare products chosen for that client were not the right ingredients for that particular client’s unique skin.

If the product does not contain the right ingredients for the person using it, its efficacy will be extremely limited at best, and problematic at worst.

What if you could definitively determine what ingredients a person needs, using both cutting-edge science, and traditional wisdom?

This is where the Skin Sequencing® Method comes in.

The Skin Sequencing® Method is a proprietary method developed and tested by Rachael Pontillo, in a 2-year, informal study called the Skin Sequencing® Project, in conjunction with Toolbox Genomics. The Skin Sequencing® Method utilizes both science and traditional herbal wisdom to systematically narrow down ingredient choices using ancestry and nutrigenomics. This will help skin care professionals make the most targeted ingredient selections possible for individual clients.

Increasing cell turnover can help reduce the chances of inflammation occurring but also help the skin to shed its discoloration by exfoliating.
