Are You Sure You Have Oily Skin?

posted by Lissa Logan

It’s not uncommon for women to tell us they have oily skin, when in fact, they actually have combination skin.

What’s the difference? Oily skin is oily all over—not just the t-zone. Combination skin types experience two skin conditions on their face, oily and normal or dry. It’s tricky and difficult.

While you may have to use lighter products in your t-zone and heavier products on your cheeks, exfoliation remains simple!

A gentle granular scrub works extremely well for combination skin. Not too drying and not too rough, twice weekly exfoliation will help to:

• Loosen and remove dead skin and debris—Skin looks smoother, radiant

• Unclog pores-They look smaller!

• Allow for a smooth, even make-up application

• Keep blackheads from appearing

Combination skin can be a bear to work with and needs special care. We can help. Just ask!

How To Make Dull Skin Beautiful Again

How To Make Dull Skin Beautiful Again

You can blame it on stress, the weather change, or you wore the wrong lipstick color today, but it just seems like your skin doesn’t look right. Make-up doesn’t look natural and then there are the signs of aging.

Crow’s feet, sun damage, lip wrinkles, and brown spots can rob you of your confidence and your natural beauty.

There’s no need to let that happen. Environ Peels rejuvenate your skin and improve the texture. Lip and eye wrinkles fade, brown spots retreat and blackheads are banished.

But it gets even better. The fast pace of every day life, not drinking enough water or exercising, can make your skin look dull, even sluggish. Environ Peels rejuvenates your skin, restoring a youthful glow.

And that’s in addition to the other anti-aging benefits! If you’re ready for smoother, softer, younger skin, you owe it to yourself to talk to us about Environ Peels.

How To Eliminate Large Pores

posted by Lissa Logan

Large pores are tough to eliminate.

You have to be careful in choosing what products or treatments to get so as not to make matters worse. So let’s start with the basics.

Pick the right cleanser. Large pores are often the result of oily skin, sun damage and genetics. Opt for an exfoliant cleanser to wash away the outer layer of dead skin cells, leaving you with smoother skin.

Use Retinoids. These are not only excellent for reducing the appearance of large pores, but they also smooth fine lines and wrinkles!

Get the right moisturizer. Oily skin needs moisturizing too! Balance your skin with an oil-free moisturizer to increase hydration in the skin.

And finally, talk to us about our highly effective treatments that diminish the appearance of large pores, increase collagen production and give you a reason to smile every time you look in the mirror.

How To Make Your Concealer Work For You

How To Make Your Concealer Work For You

Concealer is quite possibly the biggest face saver in your makeup kit. From dark circles, uneven skin tone to blemishes, it’s hard to find a woman who doesn’t rely on it.

So how can you get your concealer to work its hardest for you? Here are our tips:

• Apply a crème concealer before your foundation, especially if you’re covering hyperpigmentation (brown spots) and redness on your face. This will help to give your foundation a boost, and you won’t have to apply as much of it.

• Redness and blemishes—Add a little concealer around your nose to cover any redness. Dot it on blemishes or use a brush. Either way, you want a layering effect.

• Your eyes—Yes, you use concealer under your eyes for dark circles. But did you know that the inner corners of your eyes also give you away? This area tends to look dark as well. So don’t forget to dot or brush a bit there to lighten your eye area.

• Brow lifting highlight. Want to lift your brows a bit? Use a bit of concealer—one shade lighter than your skin tone—and smooth it just under your brow. Use a flat or angled brush so you get a smooth, crisp line. Be sure to blend well.

• General contouring. If you do have a concealer that’s lighter than your skin tone, brush it on the high side of your cheek, down your nose and on the Cupid’s bow. Blend. Set with powder then finish the rest of your makeup.

• Lips. Run a bit of concealer around the perimeter of your lips to give a nice clean border. Then apply your lip color. Beautiful!

Signs That Show Stressed Skin

Signs That Show Stressed Skin

Signs That Show Stressed Skin

Stress is detrimental to your skin. It has been scientifically proven that the hormone cortisol literally gets under your skin and makes you age faster.

Here are 5 signs that you need to watch out for:

1. Dry Skin
Cortisol damages the skin’s ability to hold on to water. Having chronic stress increases this hormone.

2. Lines and Wrinkles
An elevation in blood sugar can be triggered by cortisol. This damages collagen and elastin, the protein fibers that plump skin and keep it smooth. Constant muscle tension also leads to permanent wrinkling.

3. Redness
When you’re under duress, increased blood flow occurs causing your capillaries to expand. Stress can also trigger rosacea, or flushing. And did you know that stress weakens your immune system too?

4. Acne
Of course, we all know that when you’re stressed, breakouts happen.

5. Tired Eyes
Anxiety can absolutely bring about many sleepless nights. And this in turn creates puffiness around the eyes.

Now that you know what to watch out for, you can apply home therapies or get professional services to counter these not-so-pretty effects from stress.

Is Vanity Doing More Harm Than Good?

posted by Lissa Logan

When you’re young, you don’t consider the consequences of your actions.

Being out in the sun too long, smoking, tanning beds and drinking, all cause wrinkles and premature aging. We all know this. But the youth believe they are invincible.

According to Dr. Michele Green, a dermatologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, you show them.

“Young people are not concerned, for the most part, with their own mortality. The idea of ‘cancer’ seems miles away and not a consequence of their actions today,” she said.

The only way they will heed the warning is by showing them the effects. Young people are much quicker to respond if they see the actual damage they themselves are creating.

If you have a son or daughter that needs to see the error of their ways, we would be happy to show them.

This Is Nutrition For Your Feet

This Is Nutrition For Your Feet

This Is Nutrition For Your Feet

We’re betting you never thought of it this way, but pedicures are good nutrition for your feet.

Let’s face it.

Your feet take a beat everyday. Not only do they carry your physical weight, they also carry the weight of your world!

If they could be recycled, it might not matter how you treat them, but they can’t. They are yours forever.

Tired, aching feet are begging for relief from the load they’ve carried throughout the day. And no doubt, you are, too!

That’s why including professional pedicures as part of your wellness plan just makes sense.

Pedicures:

  • Prevent infections and diseases of the nail
  • Reduce foot odor
  • Loosen tight muscles and relieves strain caused y day to day activities
  • Diminish chronic pain
  • Reduce mental stress
  • Prevent corns and calluses from causing painful walking
  • Stop ingrown nails

Trimming, clipping, and cleaning your nails prevent them from growing inward and causing an infection. Exfoliation of calluses and corns give your feet renewed life, and you get more bounce in your step.

That’s why we call pedicures “nutrition.” They feed your feet, giving them more life and you many more comfortable, pain-free walking years! And as a second bonus, pedicures release all the stress and strain you feel.

Love your feet and your health with monthly therapeutic pedicures. We promise they will love you back!

Winter Skincare Tips

Winter Skincare Tips

As the cold weather sets in, the air becomes dry, making your skin crack and starved for moisture. So what can you do to protect it? Here are some tips to keep your skin humidified during winter.

1. Extra dry skin can cause keratosis pilaris, a condition that resembles chicken skin. Make sure to use lotions with salicylic acid to exfoliate dead cells around your hair follicles and reduce the appearance of bumps.

2. When washing your hands, choose a moisturizing soap-free cleanser or a hydrating antibacterial gel, then slather on lotion right away.

3. Anything that traps moisture on your skin helps lotions and creams soak in. So slip on some cotton gloves over lotion to help moisturize parched hands.

4. To soften stubborn dry patches on rough elbows and knees, a simple mixture of honey and sugar applied topically can serve as a rich, hydrating scrub and increase circulation in your skin.

5. If your arms or legs look scaly, try a 12 percent lactic acid lotion. It will moisturize your skin and exfoliate those scales away.

6. For your arms, legs, and torso, use a rich bath oil or moisturizing body cleanser that leaves a creamy film on your skin.

7. Exfoliate lightly.

8. For roughed-up feet, before bed, gently buff away calluses with a hydrating scrub or pumice stone, and apply a thick, buttery moisturizer while feet are still damp.

9. A long, hot bath or shower might seem tempting when you’ve been out in the cold, but it will strip your skin of moisture. Keep showers to no more than 10 minutes, and not more than once a day.

10. The softer your sheets and sleepwear, the better, but you needn’t invest in silk. Avoid blends of cotton and synthetic fibers, which might be irritating.

Did you know that on average women use 12 personal care products containing 168 different ingredients every day? (2004 survey by the Environmental Working Group)

That’s a lot by anyone’s standards, but what’s worse is this—the Food and Drug Administration does not test every single ingredient that goes into beauty products.

And you can’t trust the word “natural” on a label, either. It has not been regulated. That means the manufacturer can say it’s natural no matter what’s in it.
