Korea’s Best-Selling Soap Is Legit Magical

Korea’s Best-Selling Soap Is Legit Magical

Gounjae is a revered Korean traditional soap brand originating from Korea’s botanical-rich Jeju Island. It approaches soapmaking with the same obsession as vintners do winemaking. Using time-honored techniques, Gounjae obsesses over optimal temperature and timing to unlock ingredients at their most optimal state. Soaps are steamed three times and then aged 500 days to ripen before being wrapped in traditional Korean hanji paper that allows the soaps to “breathe.”

The soaps are egg-shaped and I can almost see the wizened old hands that crafted each single bar. The brand’s Green Farm soap contains persimmon leaves to lighten freckles and pigmentation, pine leaves to purge pores, and nutrient-rich mulberry leaves for amino acids.

Because it’s a natural soap, it doesn’t have abundant lather, but the soap works more effectively when applied directly to the face. The texture is gently exfoliating and the shape makes it effective as a facial massager as you cleanse.

Gounjae Green Farm Handcrafted Soap, $12, available at Shop Rescue Spa.

I Ditched My Fancy Cleanser for Makeup Wipes, and This Is What Happened via Byrdie

 used makeup wipe

 I’ve often heard the phrase, “Live life with no regrets.” For the past quarter-century, I can happily say that I’ve followed this notion, save for maybe a brief run-in with a box of ultra-blond hair color that I let my freshman-year roommate use on me. For the most part, no major regrets here. That is, until I offered myself up as a guinea pig for a story and said I’d wash my face using only makeup wipes for two weeks. I realize I’m being hyperbolic, but truly, if I could go back in time and unpitch the story, I might consider it.

I’ve often heard the phrase, “Live life with no regrets.” For the past quarter-century, I can happily say that I’ve followed this notion, save for maybe a brief run-in with a box of ultra-blond hair color that I let my freshman-year roommate use on me. For the most part, no major regrets here. That is, until I offered myself up as a guinea pig for a story and said I’d wash my face using only makeup wipes for two weeks. I realize I’m being hyperbolic, but truly, if I could go back in time and unpitch the story, I might consider it. Keep scrolling to find out why.

Lots of people use makeup wipes to cleanse their skin at the end of the day—this I know. My friends use them, friends of friends use them, my family uses them, and Olivia Holt swears by them. However, I’ve never had a particularly great experience with them. In fact, I’ve found my skin to look worse the few times I’ve decided to wipe instead of wash. One time I asked my friend who had just offered me a makeup wipe, Is it supposed to feel like my skin in burning off of my face?

I definitely have sensitive skin, but no matter what variation I’ve used—organic, chemical-free, etc.—I’ve always felt that my skin looked tired and/or broken out afterward. Not to mention that I’m in a committed and loving relationship with Eve Lom Cleanser and can’t imagine being unfaithful to it. Despite these feelings, I still wanted to give them a chance and see if perhaps maybe I’d just had a few negative experiences—and so the two-week test began.

Winter Skin Savers

joanna_winter_skin
Now that the cold temperatures have reared their ugly head, it’s no surprise that many clients are experiencing dry, red, flaky skin, along with increased sensitivity and eczema flare-ups. In order to keep our skin healthy and hydrated during the rough winter months, I’d like to share a few of my favorite winter skin savers.

Make sure to keep your cleansing regimen as gentle as possible. You never want your skin to feel stripped or tight after washing. Switching to a more emollient cleanser such as the Cellcosmet Gentle Cream Cleanser, will help to keep your skin balanced and properly hydrated.

For daytime, the goal is to create a barrier against the wind and cold and prevent moisture loss. I particularly like Valmont Priority Cream because of the protective properties and calming effect. It truly soothes and effectively protects even the most delicate skin, with the added benefit of SPF 30. For a boost of hydration, or if you plan on being outdoors for extended periods of time, you can layer a serum such as Valmont Hydra 3 Serum underneath.

For nighttime, Valmont DNA Repair Serum is absolutely essential, especially for eczema-prone skin, as it helps to strengthen and repair the skin’s natural barrier. Applying a rich moisturizer like Cellcosmet Cellular Night Cream will also help to heal and regenerate the skin while you sleep.

For a little pampering, I like to apply a mask such as Nature by Valmont, Moisturizing with a Mask, once or twice a week. It feels like a soft cushion on the skin and will instantly re-plump, rebalance and replenish skin that has been ravaged by cold temperatures and dry air.

Lastly, I recommend running a humidifier at night to prevent dehydration caused by indoor heat. This is one of the best and least expensive things you can do to keep the skin functioning properly during the driest of winter months.

I hope these tips will help your skin beat the winter blues…

Stay warm,

Joanna Kula, Esthetician

Snow Day = DIY Spa Day

Snow day

Rescue will be open all day today, Friday Jan 21st.  We also plan on being open tomorrow Saturday Jan 22nd (weather permitting).
~

If you can’t make it in be sure to take advantage of the cozy snow day ahead and turn it into a DIY spa day!
Repair, Protect, Restore, Rescue…


Trade your Ski Mask for a Sheet Mask
After a day on the slopes be sure to trade your ski mask for Refa’s High Tensionsheet mask!  Hydrating, lifting, and firming. *Bonus points if you use a ReFa Carat over it to deliver the products deeper into the epidermis via microcurrents.

Dry Skin
Opt for Masque Vernix: It can be left on for 20 minutes or longer.  The perfect mask to wear while binge watching Netflix.

Oily/Combination Skin
Try mixing Mask Vivant with Mask VIP o2 for a multitasking effect. Vivant purifies and feeds the skin while VIP o2 adds extra moisture that even oiliest skin can benefit from this time of year.

Hair
Let’s be honest the combination of winter hats, gust of wind, cold air outside, and hot dry air inside can leave your hair a frizzy tangled mess.  First give your scalp the TLC it deserves by continuously massaging Complexe 5 into the scalp for 10 minutes. It smells like citrus, has a warming sensation, and really stimulates the scalp. Next shampoo (repeat if necessary), and follow with an intensely hydrating hair mask such as Loreal Repair Lipidium Mask. Silky, shiny, soft hair is once again yours!

Lips
Protect from the harsh elements and repair chapped lips. We recommend Qtica Lip Balm or BR Biokiss. Both are phenomenal options. Apply liberally and often.

Hands & Feet
Restore dry hands and feet by applying a thick cream. Cover with cotton gloves and socks to seal the moisture in.  Try Valmont Hand Nutritive Treatmentand Intensive Foot Repair Cream.

Random Dry Patches
For any and all rough dry patches apply Molliderm. It soothes and softens everything from eczema to rough elbows.
