After Your Facial Your Home Care Regime

Your home care regime will greatly effect the results of your facial. It's important to use the right products at home to get maximum results from your professional facial. Everyone has a different type of skin, dry, oily, or combination and you need to use products for your skin type. Sometimes it takes trying different skin care brands to find out what works. You should cleanse, treat and moisturize your skin twice a day, the morning and at night. 

A good cleanser is the foundation of your skin care regime, they come in different consistency and can be gel or creamy. After your cleanser you can use a daily microfoliant to get off the dead skin so that you can keep your pores clean. You can use a stronger microfoliant once a week and what ever treatments your skin requires, clay for clarifying or something for moisture. Make sure you thoroughly rinse off your products. 

Most people can also benefit from a heavier moisturizer at night, that is when your skin heals and it uses the vitamins and nutrients you feed it to repair. Also a toner used with the moisturizer helps balance the ph level of the skin plus helps your skin prepare for the moisturizer, it's best to use the moisturizer right away after you spritz. Lastly dab on an eye cream to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay and help minimize dark circles. 

Get a professional facial once a month, the products are stronger than what you have at home plus your professional can do thorough extractions you can't do at home. It's good to have your skin evaluated as well to find out about better products and methods of achieving healthy glowing skin.

Easy Fixes for Winter Hair

Chances are Winter has already wreaked havoc on your hair. Harsh conditions like cold and wind strip the cuticle making it rough and susceptible to dryness and static. When properly hydrated the cuticle lies flat sealing in moisture and giving hair shine. But theres no need to hibernate until Spring. 

Keep your hair from breaking by being gentle with wet locks, it is more likely to break if brushed when wet so spray some leave on conditioner on after shampooing and comb gently with a wide tooth comb. Also shampoo as little as possible, use dry shampoo in-between shampooing. Use a mild  moisturizing shampoo and conditioner and a hair treatment once a week. Eat the right foods to nourish your locks, veggies and fruits will help keep your hair healthy. 

Home heaters dehydrate and hats rough up the hair so drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and add a silk pillow case to the mix to baby your tresses while you sleep. Lastly get your beauty sleep, it makes your hair beautiful too! And before you know it you will be Spring ready!

Difference between Laser and IPL for hair reduction treatment

Both treatments are available and involve producing light energy which is then absorbed into the dark pigment of the hair to ultimately cause damage to the hair follicle. Hair growth is then reduced without damaging the surrounding tissue. 

The main advantage of using Laser Hair Removal over IPL is that Laser technology is much more effective and achieves better results. Most patients experience permanent hair reduction after 6-12 sessions. 

IPL is simply cheaper while Lasers are far more precise and can target more selectively coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding areas of skin undamaged. It can target larger areas faster as well in a fraction of a second. Plus it can be adjusted to suit your specific skin tone and hair color. IPL can burn darker skin tones while Laser is safe for all types. 

The main difference between the two is Laser works on a single wave length of light which has a very concentrated beam and specific target. The color of your skin and hair color will determine the settings. 

Lasers create more heat directed at the hair follicle hence better results because the heat is absorbed by the hair follicle and not the skin and there is a decreased risk of burning. 

PIMPLES!!!!! It's time to get rid of those dreaded beakouts once and for all

There's nothing worse than having a breakout. They're a nuisance and unsightly but nonetheless they're something that happens to us all. But that doesn't mean you should just accept defeat and just wait for what seems like weeks for blemishes to go away. Instead there are plenty of ways to get rid of angry spots.

Stress, hormones and environmental factors cause the sebaceous glands that normally provide moisture and lubrication to become clogged. As a result, the bacteria causes the skin to become inflamed and blemishes form. From dirty make-up brushes to not washing your face before bed or not even getting enough sleep can trigger a pimple. Our first reaction may be to pop it but that's not the right thing to do. You might need to switch your skincare routine.

Look for a cleanser that contains glycolic salicylic acid as these will de-grease the skin and help with any scarring. Benzoyl peroxide will kill acne causing bacteria and reduce the size and redness of the spot quickly and effectively. Go light on your make-up and stick to an oil free skincare formula and non irritating product. 

If a spot flares up the night before a big event we recommend the Hydra Facial treatment and HiFrequency.

What To Do About Puffy Eyes

Puffy eyes and dark circles under the eyes occur for many reasons, including inherited facial features, allergies, stress, eye fatigue and texture. While certain home remedies such as soothing cucumber slices or even anti-hemorrhoid creams such as Preparation H may temporarily relieve puffy eyes, a more long lasting solution depends on the cause.

Ordinary swelling round the eyes means you have an excessive accumulation of fluids, called edema, in the surrounding skin tissue. Because the skin around the eyes is the thinnest skin in the body, swelling and discoloration can be quite prominent. 

But why does fluid accumulate to form puffy eyes in the first place? Well from a variety of factors, overconsumption of salt which causes fluid retention, allergies, sinus problems, dehydration, fatigue and lack of sleep, stress, crying, aging inherited features. Its simply true!

So what can you do? you can use eye drops for irritated eyes, drink lots of fluids, apply iced compresses, slice cucumbers and apply to your eyes or tea bags, reduce salt, eat potassium rich foods like bananas, splash cold water on your face and get plenty of rest and sleep. 

One of the most common home remedies is hemorrhoid creams for the temporary reduction of puffiness. Be careful to not get it in your eye!
