‘Tis the Season: Gift Cards That Don’t Suck via Shoppist

We’ve all been there: panicked and scrambling to find a last-minute gift for that special someone in your life whom you totally forgot about until the absolute drop-dead last minute. Oops. The go-to lifesaver? A gift card, which you’ll avoid until the last possible second. But save yourself the struggle: Gift cards, considered by many to be impersonal, boring, safe, are really unfairly maligned. In fact, there are a few out there we’d actually really enjoy receiving. Here’s how to turn a gift card reaction from eye-roll to ecstatic. Trust us.

BACK TO BASICS – My Winter SkinCare Routine by Diana Yerkes

Back To BasicsMy Winter SkinCare Routine

 Holiday parties, shopping and festive decorating are some of the many thoughts on everyone’s mind at the moment. With the busy and quite stressful season upon us, it is very easy to forget to properly take care of our face and bodies.  Simplifying and sticking to the basics is the key for me in winter.  Here is what I do to keep a consistent skincare routine and not lose my way in the holiday madness:

  • Cleanse with Lait U using a washcloth twice daily.
  • Gently exfoliate, purify and balance my skin with P50 1970 twice daily.
  • Apply creme Dermopurifiante alongside my SPF in the morning.
  • Use Environ AVST 3 moisturizer at night time.
  • Use Mask Vivant mixed with Mask Vip O2 for balance and radiance twice a week.

This easy routine works for almost any skin type! You can get a little more creative with your serums and customize according to your skin needs; I prefer to use Iribiol and Vip O2 this time of the year.

Most importantly, try to make time for yourself and have a pamper session once or twice a week, go on a hike, take on yoga classes or read that good book you never have time to finish!  You cannot be fully present in the moment and engaging with your family and friends if your mind is wondering about the next time you’ll be able to rest.  Still working on that New Years resolution list?  I have one for you!  Schedule a facial at Rescue Spa, relax, recharge, find the products that are right for you and make your skin as beautiful as it meant to be!

See you soon,

Diana Yerkes

CELLCOSMET skincare


When I traveled to the Dolomites in September by myself I was sure to pack excellent skincare!!! I wasn’t sure what to expect from the weather, and 9 hour hikes so I chose to bring along 
CELLCOSMET skincare. 

This skincare line was the most luxurious I had on and could stand the climate in the Itlian Alps. If you’ve read my blog by now you know my skin can be very troublesome with adult acne, hyper pigmentation, and so on. 

This cellular product line from Switzerland did not disappoint. Each night I came back to my room I applied the precious mask which revived my skin leaving it bright and hydrated. The cellular eye contour cream revived my eyes without caking up my makeup, smoothing away my fine lines. Last but, absolutely not least the Sensitive day cream rocked my world leaving my skin supple and hydrated. For one, non of these products broke me out which is highly unheard of, and left my skin better looking then before I started using them. 

The cellular components in these products help them to work fast, and if you will, Rescue the skin. ?

In the winter months it may serve you to look into CELLCOSMET if you are searching for an effective skincare line that may just change your view on what real skin care is all about!!!!

Local Bridal Guide: Pamper You & Your ‘Maids for Your Wedding

opi

There’s no better way to unwind and beautify before your walk down the aisle than with a stress-relieving massage, a glow-boosting facial or some pretty polish—with your brides- maids soaking it all in right alongside you, of course. Whether you’ve decided on a low-key bachelorette party or you simply want to gather your best girls for a bit of pre-wedding pampering, you can’t go wrong with a few hours spent at one of the Philadelphia area’s most luxurious spas.

Rescue Spa 1601 Walnut Street, 3rd floor, Rittenhouse, 215-772-2766

rescue-nails

The Vibe: Once you step off the elevator into this modern European oasis, it won’t take long to forget you’re in the center of a bustling city. The brightly lit space is the epitome of elegance, with dark wood, white-washed brick, soothing gray walls, and a long manicure table lined with high-backed Victorian chairs.

The Services: To ensure glowing, gorgeous skin for your Big Day, treat yourself to Rescue’s Luxe Facial—a new addition to the menu that combines microdermabrasion, a topical peel and non-invasive electric currents, to achieve firmer, more radiant skin. As for your girls, they’ll want to book blowouts in Rescue’s salon, indulge in manicures and pedicures with the talented Kelly Jean Collana, and have a go at the lash extension services now being offered by the spa’s primary makeup artist, Victoria Roggio.

The Experience: Rescue’s relaxing, intimate atmosphere is best suited to smaller parties (say, the bride and two or three girlfriends), since you’ll be sharing the lounge—which has a huge, comfortable couch that’s perfect for everyone to gather on between treatments—and locker room (complete with showers and a steam sauna) with the spa’s other guests.

Ask For: When you give the spa a call, ask to speak to the general manager, Aggie Otrebska, who will help coordinate the appointments for your entire party. Catering: Rescue is strictly BYO; you’re welcome to bring along a bottle of bubbly and a light snack or cupcakes to nibble on during your stay.

“Difficult” Skin

As the seasons change, and the weather becomes colder, keeping one’s skin can become quite a challenge. Personally my skin is in itself a challenge year round as I battle adult acne, redness, hyper pigmentation, and signs of aging. I have to admit, I am not one who loves creams or moisturizers for my skin personally because I already produce enough oils as it is. However, in the winter I do become a bit surface dry, my skin is visibly dry and sometime flaky.

Last year the senior aestheticians convinced me to give Dermopurifiante by Biologique Recherche a try. This cream is very purifying for oily/ combination skin which leaves my complexion unified and hydrated without feeling greasy.

dermopurifiante

Creme Dermopurifiante:

  • Purifies the skin with antibacterial active ingredients
  • Helps to regulate sebaceous secretions
  • Helps tighten pores
  • Softens skin blemishes

I actually love this cream to date and use it religiously as my night cream year round. However, I feel sometimes that it can be a bit much for daily use, this is when I discovered EMULSION GEL BIOSENSIBLE by Biologique Recherche. I have been using this gel daily for the past two weeks and I am loving it! After cleansing my skin, I apply P50, Serum VG Tensil (for firming), and finish with Emulsion Gel Biosensible. This preps my skin perfectly for my daily makeup application.

emulsiongel_biosensible (1)

Emulsion Gel Biosensible:

  • Reduces redness and relieves tight skin
  • Regulates oil production
  • Illuminates and evens out the complexion

This system seems to be working great for my skin type which has been called very difficult by some of the best estheticians, but it is the truth. I also practice what I preach and get a facial every four weeks. This is a must to keep my skin on track, and away from the Dr. with all his/her medications, creams, and pills. Last but not least I must mention, I also continue to mask my skin once a week with Mask VIVANT and use Retinol 1 by ENVIRON once a week at night!
