Our goal
Provide quality products that help unveil beautiful, glowing skin. We promise gradual change with time and improvement in your skin with continuous use of use products.

CLEANSE
Cleansing is the key to great skin. It is extremely important that you wash away dirt and oil built up throughout the day. The type of cleanser you use can dramatically improve your skin condition. Use an oil-based cleanser to melt away makeup and excess oil. A cream-type cleanser with ph balancing benefits helps control oil and lock in moisture. The most common are cleansing foams, which provide a gentle yet deep cleanse to remove impurities. Try double cleansing to get refreshingly clean and smooth skin.

TONE
Be sure to keep your skin hydrated. Refreshing toners are used after cleansing to soothe and hydrate the skin. They also prepare your skin so that the product in the next step of your skincare routine absorbs well into the skin. Need more hydration? Keep a facial mist in your bag and use liberally to maintain hydrated skin all day long.

MOISTURIZE
Moisturize daily to get healthy, soft skin. While there are light moisturizers and gel-type creams for the summer, intensive hydrating moisturizers are the way to go for the colder seasons. Try anti-aging moisturizers that lock in moisture to help skin stay firm and maintain its youthful glow. Or how about applying a scoop of cream before you go to bed? You’ll notice radiant skin with visibly reduced lines the next morning.

TURNING BACK THE HANDS OF TIME

December 15th, 2017 • Posted by Lupe Guthrie • Permalink

There are two primary culprits of skin aging: intrinsic and extrinsic agers. Extrinsic agers are the external, more controllable factors, such as sun exposure, smoking, sleep, diet, stress, and lifestyle factors, each of which contribute to the presence of free radicals in the body. Intrinsic (internal) refers to the biological aging that occurs with the passing of time. It is the less controllable of the two factors as it is primarily due to genetic programming and physiological decline.

While much insight has been made into what causes cells to stop or slow the regeneration process, an effective way to reverse this process has not yet been discovered. Adding to the challenge, genetic programming significantly impacts the degradation of skin cells.

Skin cells are amazing structures, but they are very sensitive. Cells have the ability to repair themselves, but as the body ages, the process slows and cells have trouble combating the numerous elements that threaten their integrity. The damage occurs when oxidative stressors – like the sun, pollution, chronic stress, smoking, and free radicals – penetrate skin cells, break down collagen, and impact the DNA structure of the cell. Over time, as damage occurs, the cell is more likely to replicate and the damaged cells multiply.

DNA aging also impacts the production of collagen, which is the main component of connective tissue and is responsible for inhibiting the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and saggy, slack, and crepe-like skin. Unfortunately, production of this youth-preserving protein decreases with age. Signs of aging occur when the fibroblast cells that step in to repair damaged collagen fibers cannot complete their work – a product of aging cells.

Although people cannot stop or reverse their internal clock, they can slow intrinsic aging by focusing on reducing the exposure to extrinsic agers. Luckily, a great deal is known about extrinsic agers and how to stop the progression of their damaging effects.

The most common extrinsic factors include sun exposure, smoking, pollution, chronic stress, and poor sleeping, diet, and exercise habits, all of which are known producers of free radicals, increased inflammation, and glycation. While free radicals play an important role in several biological processes and are created as an essential part of life, they are highly reactive. When they reach this state, they can cause unwanted side effects and become quite harmful to the skin and the body as a whole

Treating the body with quality ingredients,

December 1st, 2017 • Posted by Lupe Guthrie • Permalink

When it comes to good skin care practices, most clients tend to stop at the neck, subjecting the body to subpar ingredients found in mass-marketed lotions. Skin is the largest organ and is a reactive mechanism, so it makes sense that what we put into and on the body will most certainly impact its appearance. By treating the body with the same care, quality ingredients, and treatments as the face, is it possible to transform the skin to a more youthful, healthy state?

It is possible! However, while many of the same ingredients may be used on the body as the face, the skin on the body experiences a different host of issues and in different ways than the skin on the face. Thus, the way in which people use those ingredients becomes important.

How can skin care professionals solve and effectively treat the biggest challenges that impact the body? There are numerous solutions – many of which professionals may already be using to treat the face, neck, and décolleté – but it first starts by understanding the most common issues that challenge the body and the root cause behind those issues.
