Home Skin Care

faceEveryone has unique skin care needs that change according to season, time of life, and personal goals.  The key is to finding at home skin care products that suit both your climate and age. For that you need a trained skin care professional (esthetician)

Try different systems; mix and match,but don’t settle. If you don’t see a benefit in a month, change. You should be happy with your home skin care and with the way your face looks. There is not be one magic bullet for everyone, but there are some rules of thumb. 

Cleansers come in different shapes, sizes, formulations, and strengths. Some products can strip the skin of natural oils while others don’t scratch the surface of makeup, oil, and pollution build-up. As a rule, the longer you leave a cleanser on, the more it will do. If you have sensitive skin, splash your face with water, lather, and rinse. For a concentrated clean, let the lather linger.

When you exfoliate, find a median between frequency and ferocity. Don’t over-do it. Exfoliation occurs with washcloths, toners, and scrubs. A common mistake made at home is over-scrubbing, which leads to dry, irritated and even inflamed skin. Rule of thumb – take it easy.

Masks are described as great home remedies, but they’re not for everyone,they can be drying or harsh.

Generally, I suggest exfoliating three times a week and masking twice a week in-between facials. Those with acne and sensitive skin should not be using anything abrasive and always always use mild, gentle products like surface peel masks that slough off after they have dried on the skin.

Oxygen Facial – What Is It?

I have several way of getting that much needed oxygen to your skin. Mnewsletter-woman-with-big-bright-smile-75x75y 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”

Firm and Tone with Microcurrent

IMG_0695MicroCurrent Technology is the only esthetic treatment available that can physically firm and tone the skin through muscle re-education. This process of a gentle ‘re-education’ of the fine facial muscles stimulates them with very small amounts of electricity. MicroCurrent is a specific amount of electricity that mirrors the body’s own natural current and works in harmony with the body’s electrical system.
Microcurrent instruments deliver minute doses of beneficial current to the cells in order to return the tissue to a normal level of electrical activity. This allows the body to effectively use proteins and other nutrients for cell growth and repair. Every cell in the body generates electrical current and these currents are measurable in the brain, skin, heart and muscles.
Modern science recognizes that the body is electrically wired; that our cells generate electricity. Our health depends upon the ability of current to flow freely through our body. The process of healing begins on a cellular level and microcurrent allows the cells to regain their natural energy flow restoring health.
Microcurrent stimulates the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) which is a “reservoir of energy” for the body. ATP is involved in virtually every activity of the cell including nerve transmission, muscle contraction and protein synthesis. ATP stores and delivers fuel to the cells accelerating healing on a cellular level.
While providing the body with beneficial electrical current, a microcurrent treatment assists the body in producing and more effectively utilizing proteins and nutrients for cell metabolism and repair. Microcurrent restores normal electrical activity enhancing and accelerating the healing process.

What to Expect From Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion resurfacing is a treatment that improves wrinkles, skin texture and color by removing the top-most layer of skin leaving it more supple and vibrant. Microdermabrasion resurfacing also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. A wonderful alternative or compliment to enzyme peels. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive, pain-free and requires no down time after treatment.

A Short Explanation of LED

IMG_0843Photo rejuvenation or LED light therapy is the use of various colors of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) that create an anti-aging effect on the skin. It is referred to by several different names including photo-rejuvenation, anti-aging LED light therapy, or red light therapy and has become recognized as one of the safest, quickest, and most affordable ways to achieve younger and healthier looking skin. This is a great treatment for acne, anti-aging, hyper pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.

How Oxygen Can Get You the Hollywood Glow for Holiday Parties

Posted on December 4, 2014 by Image Skin Care

IMG_7638 - CopyWhen a celebrity steps out onto the red carpet we expect a flawless appearance, high fashion, a well-toned physique and a glowing, seemingly never aging, complexion. After all, behind every A-List celebrity is a team of stylists working together to achieve what looks effortlessly beautiful. But most people can’t afford their own glam squad (wouldn’t that be nice though!). However, it is possible to achieve that Hollywood glow on your own, and have your skin looking radiant for your next holiday party.

What is this Hollywood secret? It’s simple: a single element that surrounds you daily—oxygen. When oxygen is applied topically, it immediately plumps, hydrates and firms your skin, giving you that healthy, youthful, glow. Oxygen-infused skin treatment will reduce the signs of aging by supplying the skin with nourishing vitamins, amino acids and enzymes that strengthen the collagen. It also kills bacteria and softens fine lines, giving a smoother skin tone, which allows for easier makeup application.

You may be wondering why you still have unwelcome fine lines, wrinkles and a dull complexion when you are surrounded by oxygen. But the truth is, you aren’t. The air we breathe, depending on where you live, is made up of Nitrogen, carbon dioxide, methane, argon, neon and other gases, while only about 18% is actual oxygen. This is why many of Hollywood’s biggest stars rely on oxygen facials to get all the benefits of oxygen propelled directly into their skin, without the pore-clogging environmental elements along with it.

Now, what exactly is an oxygen facial? Our O2 Lift is a professional treatment given by an esthetician. 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, your skin will look healthier, firmer and more radiant—giving you that “Hollywood glow” for any upcoming holiday parties.

How Important is it to Exfoliate?

ImageExfoliating regularly is extremely important. When the natural shedding process creeps up on the pores, the dead skin cells accumulate and may cause breakouts, blackheads, dull skin, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Exfoliating a couple of times a week is recommended to prevent all of these skin conditions.

Did you know that exfoliating instantly brightens, firms and, retexturizes the skin to a baby soft feel?

Consult your skin care professional for the proper home care exfoliation for your skin.
