HOW TO UNDO SKIN DAMAGE BEFORE YOUR BIG DAY

over the moon

While common skin ailments are troublesome no matter what stage of life you’re in, they can feel especially exacerbated when you have a wedding on the horizon. You’re of course your own worst critic and things are often not as bad as you perceive, but the idea of high-definition photography and hundreds and pairs of eyes examining you can leave even the most low-key bride nervous. Lucky for us, Danuta Mieloch, Esthetician and owner of Rescue Spa (soon opening an NYC location!), filled us in on what you can do to correct almost any problem plaguing your appearance. Keep in mind that according to Danuta, “It takes daily self-discipline to cleanse, exfoliate, treat, moisturize, and protect your skin to achieve the goal of perfection. The sooner you get started, the better!”

Sunspots
While avoiding direct sunlight should always be the goal, this isn’t always a practical (or fun!) solution. However, unsightly skin damage very well may result. “Lighter skin tends to develop freckles and sunspots, whereas darker skin becomes patchy and shadowed. Luckily, there are several options to correct this, but know that not all spots can be treated equally.”

Many treatments like hydroquinone and RetinA can be rather harsh and actually increase the problem. To be on the safe side, start with a balancing and regulating skincare regimen while slowly introducing more acting ingredients. “Retinol is not as harsh as RetinA, and should be used up to two nights a week. This will work especially well when alternated with Vitamin C and IPL treatments. Biologique Recherche’s Lotion P50 Pigm 400 is a product you can safely use daily. Rather than hydroquinone, it uses kojic acid and niacinamide to effectively reduce pigmentation while still respecting and protecting the skin.”

Unfortunately with this ailment, patience is the key. “Whenever pigmentation doesn’t respond quickly to treatment, it means the damage is deep and will take time to surface. Often times during treatment it can appear darker before it begins to lighten.”

Breakouts
Acne doesn’t just plague the face, and spots on the chest and back are certainly not what you want people looking at when you’re in your dress. “To cleanse hard to reach places, rely on the genius Aquis Back Scrubber. Lotion P50 1970 should be applied across any problem area to remove every trace of sweat and oil buildup, the major cause of acne. To further treat, try Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare All Over Blemish Solution.”

If you’re noticing this problem more than normal leading up to your wedding, you very well may have your amped up SoulCycle routine to blame. Make sure to shower as soon as possible after every workout.

Acne Scars
While some at-home exfoliating treatments will help to lessen scarring caused by acne, serious results are best achieved by the pros. “This is especially well treated by clinical laser treatments as well as regular professional microdermabrasion to soften and smooth your skin,” explains Mieloch.

Keratosis Pilaris
Unless your dress is long-sleeved, you want your arms to be in tip-top shape before your walk down the aisle. Those pesky red bumps that plague so many is a condition called keratosis pilaris, caused by a buildup of keratin. “My go-to treatment is P50 Corps as well as dermalac lotion to remove the dead skin cells,” says Mieloch. “Follow with a good body moisturizer since this condition is more likely to appear if you have dry skin.”

YOUR FACE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR ABS… because that is what people see first.

monkia-and-kids

Hello Fitness Peeps!

I’m sure all of you are working out your abs under the eye of your personal trainer, getting in shape for summer. Awesome!  But have you thought about your face??!  YOUR FACE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR ABS… because that is what people see first.

Think about being fit head to toe! The face has 43 muscles and as part of your body those muscles need a workout too.
The answer? A FITNESS FACIAL!  Not only will it lift your muscles but also oxygenate, detox, and nourish your skin.

I’ve been an aesthetician for over 15 years and I really believe in a holistic touch.  But to enhance a great workout I always love to include some skin products as well. I could go on and on with that but let’s make our lives a little more simple and step out of the fancy spa, since many of us are mothers and we need a quick fix! 

Here are a few quick ‘ fixer uppers’ from my most beloved company, Biologique Recherche:

1. Lotion P50: Known as a ‘facial in a bottle’. You will find this cult favorite on many a famous face’s lists of products they can not live without. P50 will tone, balance, hydrate and exfoliate your skin. It is a magic toner, rich in acids and antibacterial phenol. Amazing after a workout.  Use it twice a day, post cleanse. Dispense onto a cotton pad and lightly wipe all over face, neck, and chest.

2. Mask Vivant: It contains pure live yeast, vitamin B and a pinch of baking soda. It provides great balance and purification, preps your skin, closes your pores and exfoliates. For best results, use weekly. Leave it in the kitchen and apply while making dinner or tending to other tasks around the house.  Just don’t offer to help the kids with homework while wearing the “brown smelly goo” as my kids refer to it.  (Maybe that isn’t such a bad thing?)

3. Creme Dermopurifiante: My favorite moisturizer to balance the skin’s pH (which is its natural protection). This cream regulates your skin by moisturizing the dry parts, yet it absorbs excess sebum (oil).

4. Don’t forget your sunscreen.

There you have it. A very basic but powerful regimen for every busy woman.  If you have time for a workout you’ll be able to find time for your ‘business card’ (your face)!  If you are interested in learning more I would be pleased to help you at Rescue Spa 🙂 

Stay fit head to toe.

Love,

Monika Kozłowska

Danuta shares her skincare secrets and everything on her radar with Philadelphia Magazine.

Danuta shares her skincare secrets and everything on her radar,
on page 46 of the June 2017 Philadelphia Magazine Summer Guide.

danaphillymag

The founder of Rescue Spa is a longtime fixture on Philly’s beauty scene, but now after fielding desperate pleas from our neighbors up north, she’s expanding beyond her Rittenhouse outpost with an NYC location, slated to open later this summer. Here, she shares her skin-care secrets and everything on her radar.


FAVORITE THINGS


JEWELRY STAPLE:
A gold charm necklace from TownHome in Rittenhouse. “All of my friends and family know I have it and usually get me additions.”

LITTLE LUXURIES:
A men’s rose gold panerai watch, a great handbag, and comfortable pair of Gucci loafers.

ON MY NIGHTSTAND:
A Tivoli radio and a stack of magazines.

MORNING FUEL:
“I make myself a green juice in my Omega juicer­­­­­­­­– lemon, apple, ginger, parsley, celery and kale.”

RECENT SPLURGE:
A lightweight sweater by The Row.

COLLECTION:
Buddha and Ganesh figurines, old perfume bottles and antique Lalique glass.


BEAUTY ARSENAL


FAVORITE FRAGARNCE
Odin 11 or Il Profvmo’s Ginger, depending on the season.

SKIN-CARE ESSENTIALS:
Biologique Recherche. “I always have Lait U, Lotion P50 1970, Masque Vivant, Fluide VIP O2 and sunscreen.”

GO-TO GADGET:
LightStim LED Light Therapy, a UV-free at-home light system that helps regenerate skin cells.

MAKEUP MUST-HAVE

Valmont foundation, L’Elixir des Glaciers, in Rosy Beige. “It’s like a tinted serum for your skin.”

NEW PRODUCT
“I turned 50 this year, so currently I am testing Liquid Surgery Serum by MBR. It comes with a hefty price tag but it’s worth the splurge!”


OUT AND ABOUT


CURRENTLY WORKING ON
Rescue Spa’s second location, at 29 East 19th Street in New York City.

FAVORITE BAR
Center City’s Oyster House during happy hour, for a glass of wine.

NEXT VACATION:
Paris and South of France. “Poland is also a regular stop, to visit my mom.”

FAVORITE MARKET:
Reading Terminal Market. “It’s busy and overwhelming, but I have my favorite stops.”

EXERCISE:
Ashtanga yoga, jogging and anything outdoors.

FAVORITE BOUTIQUE
Montaigne Market or Colette, both in Paris. “They’re like mini galleries.”

Beauty Spring Clean

beauty-spring-cleaningWhen was the last time you checked the expiration date of your sunscreen? How about your favorite mascara? Like most things in life, beauty products don’t last forever, and as you are going through and sprucing up your home for new season, why not take the time and spring clean your cosmetics?


Here Are My Basic Guidelines:


1. PAY ATTENTION TO PAO DATE

PAO stands for Period After Opening. It looks like a picture of a jar with a number next to it. The letter M stands for months and the number for how many months the product is good after opening.

expiration-symbol

2. TRUST YOUR SENSES
 
Trust your own eyes and nose when it comes to any strange smelling or odd looking foundation, lipstick or really any cosmetic product for that matter. Throw away anything that has changed in color, smell or texture.
 
3. KNOW THE BASIC SHELF LIFE RULE
 
In addition to losing their effectiveness, some expired beauty products can cause irritation or other problems. Here are some of the more common products and their typical lifespans:
 
Moisturizer and eye cream: 6 months to a year
Cleanser: up to 1 year
Toner: 6 months to 1 year
Sunscreen: 6 months to a year
Creams and serums with antioxidants and retinoids: 2 to 9 months
Organic products: 4 to 6 months
 
Tip: Products in pump bottles tend to last longer
 
Mascara (regular or waterproof), liquid or gel eyeliners: 4 to 6 months
Cream, Liquid or Stick Foundations: 6 months to 1 year
Powder-based products (including mineral makeup): 2-3 years
Lipsticks, Lip Gloss, & Lip Pencils: 2-3 years
 
TIP: Don’t pump your mascara and do not add water to your cosmetics to make them last longer! Do sharpen your lip or eye pencils before each use to get rid of the bacteria.

4. STORE YOUR COSMETICS PROPERLY 

To make your favorite items last as long as possible, keep them away from humidity, heat, air and sunlight. The most common mistake is to keep your products “safe” in the bathroom medicine cabinet. That is so wrong! Products stored that close to the shower and in humidity tend to spoil sooner. I find that designating an area for a vanity is very exciting and storing your products in a vanity drawer is a MUST.
 
5. MAKE SPACE FOR THE NEW
 
We all share a tendency to collect too much make up or skin care. I definitely am guilty of this and belong in the second category. I find it gratifying to go through my possessions and find items my friends and family can benefit from, thus making space for much more needed or craved new item.
 
6. UPGRADE TO A SUMMER FORMULA
 
With hotter months upon us, it is beneficial to switch to a lighter product formula. I tend to swap my favorite Dermopurifiante for lighter Emulsion Biosensible S.R., and upgrade my SPF from Environ SPF25 to a Jan Marini SPF45.
 
7. DON’T SHARE YOUR PRODUCTS WITH OTHERS
 
We all know that sharing is caring but in order to avoid infections, it’s best to keep your beauty products to yourself.
 
The awakening of spring brings an awareness of a new season and I hope this article has inspired you to freshen up your beauty stash and move forward more confident and informed.
 
Your Esthetician,
 
Diana Yerkes
