Calling All Blondes!


 

Sunny summer days making your hair feel brassy and dry? It’s ok, you’re not alone. Salt water, chlorine and sun take its toll on everyone’s hair, but blondes can feel even more taxed when your color starts to turn yellow.

To combat those undesirable hues, I recommend Davines Alchemic Shampooand Conditioner formulated for blonde and silver hair. The strong purple pigments will neutralize brassy tones and restore vibrancy in between color services. Start with using the shampoo and conditioner once a week, increasing frequency as necessary. If your hair is very porous, you may find that the conditioner, paired with your favorite color conserving shampoo, may be enough to do the trick! Try leaving the conditioner on for 3 to 5 minutes for the full benefits.

Follow with a moisturizing leave-in (like Davines Oi All In One Milk) to tame, smooth and lock in shine.

Hair Stylist,

Summer Skincare by Edith Gondek

~

The days are thankfully getting longer and as we get to spend more time outdoors enjoying the fresh air and sunshine, it is critical to increase the use of sunscreen to prevent the development of solar keratosis and, by implication, help to reduce the risk of skin cancer.

If you Google The New England Journal of Medicine you will see multiple peer reviewed studies on the benefits of using sunscreen. I would first encourage you to use a high quality sunscreen daily – even when it is cloudy as those UV rays, especially with ozone depletion, can impact your skin. This is critical not only for your complexion, but also for your long-term health.

I recommend Suntegrity SPF 30 Sunscreen because it offers broad-spectrum protection without the chalkiness, greasiness or harsh chemicals.

Unfortunately there is a negative to sunscreen use – facial irritation and clogged pores that can lead to unwanted and sometimes “ugly” consequences. Is there a solution? Yes.

Masking at home with Valmont Purifying Pack 2-3 times a week will help to keep your skin clear and looking its best during these humid months.

To further minimize congestion of the skin, don’t forget to switch to lighter products. I recommend Environ Antioxidant Gel for daytime, or if your skin is on the drier side, Environ AVST moisturizer.  Using products with powerful antioxidants such as green tea extract, Vitamins A, C and E along with your sunscreen will give you additional protection against free-radicals from the harmful UV rays as well as environmental factors.

At night I recommend double cleansing with Biologique Recherché Lait VIP O2 to remove makeup and impurities, while allowing the skin to take in oxygen. Follow this with Biologique Recherché Lotion P50 1970 to exfoliate and regulate excessive sebum secretion.

For the final step, I recommend using Valmont DNA Repair Serum and Valmont Soothing Cream together to boost the skin’s capacity for repair. Using these products at nighttime, when the skin is most active, will help heal damaged tissue, while calming irritation and redness.

For extra care around the delicate eye area, I always like to finish with a separate eye cream such as Valmont Expression Line Reducer Eye Factor I.

Of course, if your skin needs a deep pore cleaning, nothing beats a Rescue facial from a qualified esthetician. We can assess your skin and customize a treatment to your specific needs. It usually begins with a deep cleanse using steam to open up the pores, followed by exfoliation. As you get relaxed, your pores will be cleansed via various means to insure healthy and vibrant skin.

Action Step?  Don’t wait.  Don’t procrastinate. Book a rejuvenating facial with one of Rescue Spa’s experienced estheticians, such as myself and consider a gift certificate for a friend or significant other.

Let us embrace the fresh air and warmth that summer provides, while enjoying the sun responsibly.

Your skin will love you for it!

Mama, Love Your Skin!

As a busy working mom of 2 in the skin care industry, it’s important for me to feel good and look refreshed, hydrated, and youthful. Repeatedly, I hear moms say they don’t have time to take care of their skin. They don’t even have time to wash their face. Yet they want to age gracefully and have youthful skin. It’s time to take the time.

I have a few simple steps that are quick and easy to do. I’ve kept it simple so you will keep on taking the time to care for your skin.

Because it is important.
Because you are worth it. 

  • Cleansing- Cellcosmet gentle cream cleanser.
    It has jojoba oil and rose flower water. I find it to be a nice way to remove eye make-up and over all cleanse without stripping you of your natural oils.
  • Always double cleanse.
  • Toner- p50 pigm 400.
    Keeps skin balanced, even toned. Helps lighten those skin spots most mamas relate to and preps the skin for your next product.
  • Over the entire face – Cellcosmet ultra vital.
    It’s light and over-all hydrating without feeling greasy.
  • Daily face protectant.
    I have been liking Jan Marini, antioxidants, broad spectrum, SPF 33.
  • A little bonus, new to me and a favorite, Vintner’s Daughter active-botanical serum.  It helps to reduce signs of aging, strengthens collagen, and delivers oxygen to the cells to help protect the skin. I’ll use this a few times a week, especially if I’m outdoors that day.

I hope this helps the mamas in the world. The truth is, at this point in my life, I would rather get compliments on my skin than on a new pair shoes.

Esthetician,
Suzanne Zelley

Connoisseur: Danuta Mieloch’s Favorite Things (via Shoppist)

Connoisseur: Danuta Mieloch’s Favorite Things

Photography by Courtney Apple.

BY    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. 

Favorite Things

Jewelry staple: A gold charm necklace from Town Home in Rittenhouse [above, left]. “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 a comfortable pair of Gucci loafers. [above, right]

On my nightstand: A Tivoli radio [above, left] 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 [above, right], old perfume bottles and antique Lalique glass.

Beauty Arsenal

Favorite fragrance: Odin 11 or Il Profvmo’s Ginger [above, left], 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.

Must-have makeup: Valmont foundation, L’Elixir des Glaciers, in Rosy Beige [above, right]. “It’s like a tinted serum for your skin.”

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

Out and About

Oyster House

Photo by Jason Varney.

Currently working on: Rescue Spa’s second location, at 29 East 19th Street in New York City.

Favorite bar: Center City’s Oyster House [above] during happy hour, for a glass of wine.

Next vacation: Paris and the 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.”

Published as “Connoisseur: Danuta Mieloch” in the June 2017 issue of Philadelphia magazine.  Read more at http://www.phillymag.com/shoppist/2017/06/03/connoisseur-danuta-mieloch/#u1hHE0Ug0A77k2o1.99
