Using the principles of biochemistry, Tamara’s signature range of treatments & products encourage youthful healthy skin. From a Basic Facial to Signature Enzyme Therapy to Instant Lift, Tamara has the answers to all your skins concerns.
Remove makeup before cleansing. My preferred method is to 1. rinse with tepid water, tissue off. 2. Apply a facial cleanser dry and work it around thoroughly, rinse off. 3. Second application of facial cleanser, work around thoroughly, rinse, pat dry. Makeup on your towel – you’re not clean!
Don’t use bar soap. It’s too alkaline to use on acid based skin. Bar soap will dry and inflame the skin.
Don’t use cleansing sheets that contain alcohol.
Winter is here. Time to pack away your shorts, flip-flops and bathing suits and make room for oversized jackets, boots and lip balm—lots and lots of lip balm. That dry crisp winter air can leave your skin feeling chapped, dehydrated and flaky—an annoying side effect of an otherwise nostalgically joyful season. But never fear, here is a list of dos and don’ts that will leave your skin looking radiant this winter season.
Drink a lot of water. Your skin is your largest organ, and just like any other organ in your body, the cells are made up of water. When you are not getting enough water, your skin will become dehydrated, because the water you do drink travels to all other organs first before it even reaches your skin. So drink up!
Choose the right cleanser. Washing your face twice daily with a good moisturizing cleanser will prevent your skin from drying out. At Tamara’s Skin Care we carry Image Vital C Hydrating Facial Cleanser because incorporates nourishing anti-oxidants and Vitamin C to gently clean, repair and sooth.
Moisturize daily. Apply an SPF moisturizer in the morning and a hydrating crème before you go to bed. At Tamara’s, we carry Vital C Hydrating Repair Creme, Prevention + Daily Hydrating Moisturizer with SPF 30+ as well as Image Body Spa Rejuvenating Body Lotion. These are a well-balanced trio to keep not just your face, but entire body looking radiant.
Use a humidifier. The drastic change from dry heat used to warm your home, and the cold outside air, will cause your skin to dry out faster. Using a humidifier will allow you to stay warm and retain your skin’s moisture.
Take hot showers. Even though a long relaxing shower seems like the best idea on a cold day, your skin will not thank you for it. Your body produces a thin layer of oil to protect the skin and help retain moisture. The hot water causes that oil barrier to soften, allowing moisture to escape, and leaving your skin vulnerable to harsh environmental elements.
Use bar soap. As mentioned above, the skin is covered in a thin layer of oil, and bar soap will only strip the barrier leaving your skin irritated and dry. Instead of bar soap, use a body cleanser designed to gently exfoliate and moisturize such as the Image Body Spa Exfoliating Body Scrub.
Rub your skin dry. When you get out of the shower, gently pat your skin with a towel. Rubbing will only cause irritation or exasperate other skin conditions such as eczema.
I have several way of getting that much needed oxygen to your skin. My favorite professional treatment, however, is the O2 Lift. The treatment starts with a milk cleanser that gently and effectively cleanses, removing all surface impurities and restoring the skin’s pH balance. Next, an enzymatic peel formulated to digest dead skin cells, soothing botanicals, powerful antioxidants and lighteners is massaged onto the skin. Afterwards, the oxygenating masque is applied. This masque is designed to work in just minutes, and improves circulation, eliminates toxins and is packed with powerful antioxidants to hinder aging and a potent lightening blend that reduces pigmentation and illuminates the skin. The plant-derived skin cell facial enhancer is then applied. This powerful serum will hydrate and extend cell life while correcting uneven skin tones. The facial is topped off with an SPF 30 moisturizer to preserve that healthy glow while protecting against further damage.
Once finished, the skin will look healthier, firmer and more radiant—giving you that “Hollywood glow”
