Great Skin Care Regime - Step #4

The 4th step towards a GREAT skin care regime is to "Protect & Preserve"

  • Exposure to the sun prematurely ages skin and contributes to fine lines and wrinkles. Protect your skin with a broad spectrum (protects against UVA/UVB rays) sunscreen of SPF 30 or above every day!
  • Preserve your skin using quality foundations and powders
  • Rich in anti-oxidants A, E & C, mineral foundations provide a unique formula that hydrates, protects and nourishes your skin, and will never clog your pores. The light texture also allows skin to breathe.  
  • Mineral powders are made from natural minerals, and are oil free, talc free, and paraben free.

Great Skin Care Regime - Step #3

The 3rd step towards a GREAT skin care regime is to "Nourish & Correct"

Based upon the degree of skin imperfection, this step demands personal evaluation with your Esthetician.  Some skin types may only need to be nourished, while other problematic types (i.e., acne, oily skin) will need to be nourished and corrected.  Following are key elements to consider:

  • Skin is nourished when using free radical-fighting antioxidants.  Antioxidant Serums are highly concentrated moisturizers.
  • Peptides help reduce surface areas of deep wrinkles and contribute to thickening of the epidermis by promoting collagen renewal.
  • Relief Serum delivers an instant calming effect to irritated skin that may be a result of special treatments or environmental stresses.
  • Camphor treatment found in blemish control, refreshes and cools the skin and helps purge skin of toxins and blemishes.

Acne / Rosacea

Acne is primarily caused by the fluctuation of hormones.  Hormones stimulate the oil glands to produce more sebum, which can block pores. Bacteria can then grow within the pores, causing them to become inflamed and break out.

Rosacea is a common, lasting skin condition, a rash that appears on the face.  Rosacea is triggered when something causes the blood vessels in the face to expand, which causes redness.
