Focus On The Eyes

Diana_Eye_Blog_2016

At 22, my esthetician’s recommendation to use eye cream shook my world; it made me feel old.  Your eyes are the windows to the soul, and it makes perfect sense to take care of them.  As an esthetician, I get a lot of questions like, “why can’t I just use face moisturizers around the eyes?”.  The answer lies in simple skin anatomy.  The skin around the eye area is the thinnest and most delicate, so it’s very important to use specialized treatments to take care of it.  Most times using a facial moisturizer around the eyes will cause milia- small, white bumps that  occur when keratin becomes trapped under the skin’s surface.

As a skin care professional, I hear clients say how much they wish they could turn back time, change their sun care habits and start taking care of their delicate eye area sooner.  Some general eye concerns I hear from my clients are crows feet, under eye darkness and puffiness and a loss of overall volume and sagginess.  In this post I want to address proper eye skin care. 

As a beginner option (in your early twenties), I recommend creams that are lightweight, moisturizing and preventative.  Form a comprehensive routine habit — use them morning and night around your eye area by patting it gently on your face with your ring finger.  Some of the best choices for this are:

  • AVST Eye Gel, a fragrance-free energizing gel that has been scientifically formulated with an effective combination of vitamins A, C and E, antioxidants and peptides.  It assists in softening the appearance of fine lines and in improving the appearance of uneven skin tone and sun damage without causing irritation.
  • 3 LAB Perfect C Eye Treatment, antioxidant and moisture rich eye treatment enriched with Vitamin C to reduce the appearance of dark circles and hydrate the sensitive eye area, leaving you with a softer and smoother contour area.

In your mid-twenties/early thirties aging begins and your collagen and elastin production slows down.  Collagen is the fiber-like protein that gives skin strength and flexibility and elastin is another protein that keeps skin flexible but tight.  Diminished production of these compounds results in fine lines and wrinkles.  My recommendations to address this issue?

  • BR Creme Contour de Yeux, for the eye contour helps smooth small lines around the eyes and nourish eyelashes.  It actively protects dehydrated skin in the eye area. This cream is rich in marine elastin and polyunsaturated fatty acids.  Its velvety texture improves epidermal elasticity, moisturizes and tones the eye area.
  • Valmont Factor I, soft and silky eye cream targets the first expression lines.  Acting as a true antidote to the very first signs of time, EXPRESSION LINE REDUCER delivers all the power of the Prime AWF complex to the skin and is enriched with a muscle relaxing tripeptide.
  • Cellcosmet Cellular Eye Cream, my current favorite, with 11% active stabilized bio-integral cells is specifically formulated to treat the delicate skin tissue of the eye contour.  The active ingredients of this Cellular Eye Contour cream are formulated in exceptionally high concentrations to revitalize, hydrate and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.

For overall care in your late thirties/early forties consider 3LAB WW Eye Cream which I hear is JLo’s favorite!  It is a moisture intense treatment for wrinkle-smoothing, brightening, and reducing under eye circles.

  • Another good option is Valmont Factor II Firming Lifting Corrector that strengthens the cohesion of the dermal-epidermal junction, decreases the depth of wrinkles, leaves skin smoother with a brighter tone and actively fights against settling of skin around the eyes.
  • For under eye darkness and puffiness concerns, I recommend BR VIP O2 Eye Cream layered over BR Oligo-Protein Marine Serum.  It smooths, tones and reduces bags under the eye area, helps prevent wrinkles around the eyes and treats dark circles and bags under the eyes.

For the more mature client looking to do all of the above and avoid eye lift surgeries, I usually recommend the 3LAB Super Eye Treatment for quick and dramatic results.  This elastin and collagen power house serum instantly reduces under eye fine lines and wrinkles and fights darkness and puffiness. 4 in 1? Yes please!

No matter what your concerns are, schedule a facial and get a professional skin assessment to discover what products are right for you.  Skincare is personable and customizable to your needs and we are here to do that for you!

With Summer Swiftly Approaching, Tame Your Tresses…

With Summer Swiftly Approaching, Tame Your Tresses…

~
By: Liz Szot – Hair Stylist
 

Around this time every year I have clients ask what they can do to keep their hair at its best during the summer months, so here are some of my go-to tips to ensure you’re putting your best hair forward all summer long!

Protect your hair and scalp from the sun. We all know we should wear sunhats, but when that isn’t possible try spraying a misting sunscreen 18 inches from your hair to protect your hair color and scalp from harmful UV rays. Be especially careful of damage the sun can do to your scalp if you have thinning hair, wear your hair in a defined part or have a short ‘do that leaves your ears exposed.

Wet your hair before you take a dip. By saturating your hair with fresh water before getting into the pool or ocean you will absorb less of the chlorinated or salt water into you hair, which will be less drying on your locks.

Keep ends hydrated. Make sure to pack a leave-in conditioner or oil in your beach bag to keep your ends from getting dry or frizzy. Oils are especially good to keep frizz at bay from dry, coarse or chemically treated hair; just make sure you aren’t applying them close to the face or scalp to keep from appearing greasy.

Get a glaze or conditioning treatment. Add a little extra something to your summer salon routine to keep hair sealed and shiny! A tinted gloss can even be used to help combat any brassiness caused by sun exposure. Treatments only take a few extra minutes and will pay dividends toward keeping your summer hair fresh, healthy and silky. 

Reassess your routine. What works for your hair in other seasons may not work in the summer. Whether it’s how often you shampoo, how you style, the products you use or the cut and color you choose, don’t be afraid to make adjustments to get the results you want! Not sure where to start, what to change or what new products to try? Come in for a consultation!

Use summer to your advantage. Changes in lifestyle in the summer (not to mention humidity!) can give you great opportunities to wear your hair in different ways! Learn an easy updo, skip the blow dryer to get beachy texture or try a fun headwrap.

Keeps ends trimmed. Fresh ends and a tailored shape are key to looking good at any time of the year! Overdue for a trim? Make an appointment now and enjoy your summer ‘do all season!

Yours in hair, 
Liz

Treat Yourself to a Weekly
At-Home Facial

~

By: Joanna Kula Esthetician

The daily stress, combined with our busy schedules, lack of sleep and environmental factors can leave our complexion looking tired, dull and in need of some TLC.  Even with a daily regimen, our skin can suddenly rebel against us. Not to mention, it can get used to the same tired routine and it could be weeks before your next facial appointment…  The solution? Give yourself an at-home facial the next time you feel your skin needs a little boost in between professional treatments.
 
As part of my weekly maintenance schedule, I do this every Sunday morning.  It’s a quick and easy way to refresh my skin and get it ready for the week. Depending on how my skin looks and feels, I try to focus on what it needs.  Most of the time, it’s deep exfoliation and hydration.
 

If you would like to try an at-home treatment yourself, here’s an example of my typical Sunday morning routine:

 
Since my skin is clean and makeup free, from the night before, I start with a scrub such as Valmont Face Scrub.  I apply it on dry skin and work in small sections, using circular movements to cover all areas of the face.  Adding a little bit of water, I repeat the same process again and remove with a warm washcloth.
 
Next, my skin gets an instant a pick-me-up with Cellcosmet Activator Gel. I use this to get my skin ready for active ingredients, leaving it on for 3-5 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
 
Once my skin is prepped, I exfoliate with a light peel such as Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha-Beta Peel Pad or P50 1970 followed by Environ Intensive Revival Mask, a 10 minute exfoliating treatment and radiance booster.
 
An important part of my weekly facial is a stimulating and lifting massage with Valmont Renewing Pack.  I apply a dime size of the product and massage upwards lifting the cheeks, eyes and smoothing the forehead.  If you’re not a pro, don’t worry! Just remember to massage upward, working in sections. Repeat as necessary until the product is absorbed and your skin is left with a dewy sheen.
 
For extra “wow factor” and some serious lift, use the solar-powered ReFa CARAT, a micro-current roller made for personal home use.  The results are worth it!
 
After massaging with Renewing Pack, I enjoy the luminous sheen it gives my skin and usually prefer to leave it on for maximum hydration.  You can also remove it with a warm washcloth and follow with a treatment mask and/or moisturizer that are suited to your skin type.
 
I finish by applying a tinted sunscreen such as, Jan Marini Physical Protectant, and enjoy the rest of my weekend.
 
Come Monday morning, I feel good knowing that my skin is hydrated, healthy and radiant!
