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

Next time you feel your skin needs a little boost in between professional treatments try a…

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!

Spring is all about beauty from the inside out…

spring_things_2016

 

Spring is all about
beauty from the inside out…

~

Spring is all about beauty from the inside out.  This is the time of the year that I revisit my workout routine and increase cardio by spending more time biking and jogging.  My early yoga practice also seems to improve since there is now daylight at 6AM.  I make changes to my diet as well.  I don’t follow any trends specifically but I do try to eat a plant based diet, including juice, raw whole foods, and salads.  My latest obsession is raw Thai coconut water.  I’ve even learned how to crack them open at home!  The taste is just as incredible as the health benefits.
This is also a great time to dip your toes into green beauty.  Here at Rescue we have long eliminated products containing harmful parabens and I constantly search for smart choices in cosmetics.  We offer formaldehyde free nail polishes for our mani-pedi services and our massage creams are mostly natural containing zero parabens.  Unfortunately there is actually no such thing as purely organic cosmetics unless they are in the oil form.  Most of the products we use and carry that do contain preservatives have been reformulated to today’s European standards to meet strict regulations on the quality and presence of such preservatives. 

 

Since we are on the topic, here are my green beauty recommendations:

 

Biologique Recherche products are paraben free and use a high concentration of active ingredients that truly work.  Even the way they are manufactured is magical.  On my visit to their lab in France I was educated on the importance of naturally sourced ingredients, plants, fermentation, etc.  Each ingredient in Biologique Recherche products are carefully chosen to create a dialogue with the skin.

 

Danuta_BRchantecaille_logo

Chantecaille represents conscious beauty.  Their goal is to set a standard in the world of cosmetics while spreading awareness on global issues from saving the bees to climate change.  Known for their uniquely high concentration of natural botanicals, nature is preserved as an integral part of all their products.  Applying their core philosophy as the foundation for the brand, Chantecaille uses beauty to change the world.

 

rms_logo

 

RMS Beauty products are formulated with raw, food grade and organic ingredients in their natural state, allowing their living, healing attributes to penetrate and rejuvenate the skin.  In their purest form, enzymes, vitamins, antioxidants and their healing properties remain fully intact.  Free of harmful chemicals, synthetics, and GMO’s these products are full of healing nutrients – nutrients that work synergistically with the skin, and are in harmony with nature and our environment.

 

gounjae_logo

 

Gounjae:  We are proud to include this line in Rescue’s assortment.  On my trip to South Korea I had the pleasure of meeting Gounjae, the founder of this phenomenal company.  She impressed me with her extensive knowledge of herbs and oils.  Her philosophy is to use only organic and chemical-free ingredients to deliver the benefits the nature has promised.  All of the oils used are highly effective pure natural vegetable oils free of synthetic fragrances, as she only uses essential oils.  Every detail in her manufacturing process is taken into consideration right down to the handcrafted soaps that are eco consciously wrapped in chemical-free Hanji (Korean-Paper).

 

Danuta_Gounjae
Since skincare is a balancing act I like to recommend home remedies while following a good skincare routine.  My favorite “clean day” is to take a bath with dead sea salts followed by my own concoction of oils.  It is like giving your body a well needed detox on a daily basis.  For health conscious choices I use natural deodorant, Biologique Recherche body oils and creams.  Yet I still use drug store toothpaste, highlight my hair, and indulge in other practices that aren’t perfectly organic.  I am not militant in eliminating chemicals from my daily life because I would go crazy.  I believe in balance and have adopted the mantra “everything in moderation”.

Enjoy your Spring and don’t forget to wear a wide brimmed hat, sunglasses, and sun protection when you’re outside!

The Best Red Carpet–Ready Facials From Coast To Coast

While the theme of this year’s Costume Institute exhibition and Monday’s Met Gala, “Manus x Machina,” may have been conceived with fashion in mind, the motif of technology can also be found in the beauty treatments that will prime and prep attendees for their red carpet moments. And whether you’re walking up the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art or walking down the aisle this summer, the most cutting-edge pre-event facials can now be found in cities from coast to coast. These skincare gurus, cult facialists, and dermatologists advocate high-tech machines including infrared LED light, radio frequency, and microcurrent devices—often in combination with classic massage techniques—for an event-worthy glow. Here, a guide to the top experts nationwide for radiant big-night-out skin.
