Helping skin deal with hot summer sun

By | Uncategorized

This summer has been and continues to be hot with high UV index.  We have noticed this year more than any other year, that our clients have very dehydrated and stressed looking skin.

The sun effects have been very damaging this year even on those who re-apply sunscreen.  Considering that your skin is one of the largest organs in the body in surface area and weight we should be asking the question,

What can we do to encourage and maintain skin health when it is bombarded with high UV index?

The obvious answer is broad spectrum sunscreen.  I don’t think this is a news flash to anyone, yet, so many of us forget to use this skin saving product.  There are many different types of broad spectrum sunscreen and as long as you re-apply during your sun exposure time it doesn’t really matter what brand you use, you are helping reduce the effects of harmful sun rays. The trick is to find one that you like the feel of and WILL use.

What else can you do to help decrease damage and improve some of the negative effects of exposure?

A good daily skin care routine is essential for maintaining a healthy looking, fresh skin, but getting a Professional Facial Treatment can have a big impact on how healthy your skin looks and acts.  Here are some reasons why:

Your skin acts as a barrier against mechanical impacts and pressure, variations in temperature, micro-organisms, radiation and chemicals. When your skin is overwhelmed with UV rays it deteriorates, gets thin and is more vulnerable to all the bad stuff.  Professional treatment will help restore hydration and nutrients to your precious stressed skin.

Deep cleansing rids skin of toxins, dirt and oil.  Oil production and consequently clogged pores increase when skin is dehydrated and stressed.

Application of potent pharmaceutical grade antioxidant serums and creams during the facial (and in home care), slows down the premature aging associated with sun exposure.

Having a trained spa therapist do your treatment not only helps your skin but helps you relax and who doesn’t need that!?!

Don’t wait til summer is over, take care of your skin.  It has an important job to do and it can use all the help we can give it.

Why bother getting a facial?

By | Uncategorized

Ever wondered what the benefits are to getting a professional facial?  Sure it’s relaxing but what is it doing for your skin?

Professional medical grade facials, like our Honey Enzyme Facial, provide exfoliation and hydration, both necessary for healthy skin.

Why is exfoliation so important?   Our skin takes a beating everyday, facing sun, pollution, sweating, dryness and makeup chemicals.  Fortunately for us, our skin is working all the time to make new skin cell layers that continually rise to the surface.  These new cells replace older dead skin cells that are hanging out on the surface dulling our skin’s appearance.  Gentle exfoliation, using medical grade enzymes gently loosen and remove dead skin cells.  Result is improved skin texture, purification of clogged pores and stimulation of cellular turnover ( which slows down as we age). Enzyme Facials are safe for all skin types and do not cause profound redness and irritation.

When you add honey, a natural antibacterial action is added helping to clear congested or acne prone skin.

February is a great month to show you and your skin a little LOVE.                                                                                           Honey Enzyme Facial AND a manicure $99
