It is so important to protect your skin in this harsh, cold weather. My favorite moisturizer for this season is the Prime Regenera II. This ultra rich nutritious cream was formulated to struggle against skin dryness with its repairing and healing properties. It is recommended for severe weather conditions. Perfect when on the slopes skiing or whenever you’re spending time outside.

It’s that time of year again: Holiday Anxiety. You are tired from walking around in search of the perfect gifts. You are tired from carrying those perfect gifts home and tired from painstakingly wrapping them for your loved ones. You are also tired from tensing up on the phone with your mother-in-law trying to decide who’s going to host the cousins. Remember to keep in the holiday spirit with a gift to yourself. Massage is great as a tension-reliever both physically and mentally. Come in to Rescue and let go of it all for awhile. You’ll be surprised how much easier the whole Holiday-thing feels. All the best to you and yours and a very happy new year!
“Look amazing in just a few minutes! Primping for a holiday party should be easy, to achieve that effortless look. Go from daytime to glowtime. With the right products you can create glowing skin easily.”
1. Sothy’s: Focus on proper cleansing with a product like the Deep Pore cleanser from Sothy’s.
2. P50: Follow with a great exfoliation, P50 (contains lactic acid) is like a facial in a bottle!
3. Renewing Pack: A quick self massage with Renewing Pack which is loaded with moisture to combat dryness, increases circulation and plumps the skin.
4. Lipstick Queen: For a relaxed look wear a loose chignon and bring the glamour back to the lips with red lipstick by Lipstick Queen.
5. Peau de Peche: To feel more attractive in an instant wear a fabulous frangrance. I love Peau de Peche by Keiko Mecheri ‘A caress of peach skin wrapped in a veil of powdery notes of Orris and Sandalwood’

I love to travel. I don’t get away as often as I’d like, but when I do, keeping up with a solid skin care program is one of my “comforts of home” I take with me. This is actually a great time to try new things. Change a serum, add a new moisturizer, test out that eye gel. When deciding where to start, think about where you are going. Costa Rica? Vail? Paris? Your skin will benefit from different things. Don’t make the mistake and change everything at the same time. That is an accident asking to happen. Consult with a Rescue Rittenhouse esthetician for recommendations and samples.
Change the SPF in your sunblock depending on the amount of exposure you are anticipating. A dryer, possibly harsher climate will leave your skin begging for more hydration and maybe less acids.
Cleanser. You always need it. Am and PM. This weekend, I took a break from my regular Lait U and tried the Foaming Cleansing Cream from Sothy’s. The cold air made my skin a bit dehydrated so I laid off the P-50 (ugh!), only used my Retinol 3 for 1 night and added 24 Hour, a more hydrating moisturizer than my usual Creme Biofixine. I continued using VIP O2 Fluide as a protective serum and DNA repair for hydration and actual DNA repair. What I didn’t do was change my Factor 3 eye gel. I wish I had tried the new Contour Prime from Valmont. Guess there is always next time!
“Get a quick pre-Thanksgiving skin fix with your own facial at home!
Focus on exfoliation using whatever scrub or alpha hydroxy you have
(like P50 toner), a hydrating mask, and a lukewarm English breakfast tea compress on your eyes.
If you want to feel like you’ve shed a few pounds an all-over body
scrub will be sure to invigorate. Happy Thanksgiving!”
