Tips for Shaping Your Eyebrows at Home

  1. You need tweezers, scissors, a brush that looks like a mascara wand and a mirror.
  2. Comb your brows in an up and out direction.
  3. Make a decision of how you want your eyebrows to look. Try not to modify too much because the natural shape is already created to go with your features. (Optional: take a white eye kohl and color under and above the eyebrow to mark the part you want to tweeze. Do it on both eyebrows before you start tweezing. This way you will be able to achieve better symmetry)
  1. After you are done tweezing, take the brush and comb your brows up again. Now carefully trim the hair that is longer and goes above the line of the brow.
  2. Now, brush your brows down. Don’t trim as much as above the eyebrow.

The truth about trimming:

Trimming your eyebrows will make them look groomed and thinner. Keeping this in mind, be sure not to tweeze your eyebrows as thin as you normally would.

Shape:

  • The best eyebrow shape is a bit of a fuller brow.
  • Starting thicker and slowly thinning out toward the edges.
  • When it comes to an arch, don’t over do it. Some people have straight eyebrows and trying to get an arch would make their brows too thin and it wouldn’t fit their features. Lift the arch just enough so you don’t have too much skin between your eye and brow. The higher you go, your eyelids might start looking droopy.

Keep it as natural as possible!

10 Things To Do “Now” To Look Your Best In 10 Years

 

  1. Drink plenty of water – at least two liters, 12oz a day! Thoroughly hydrated skin contains fewer toxins and maintains its elasticity better.
  2. Use your sun sense – during the day, always wear UVA-UVB sunscreen and clothing with high necklines. Save cleavage for evenings.
  3. Stretch with strength (think Pilates or Yoga) three or four times a week; this will improve the body silhouette.
  4. Cut caffeine (coffee, black tea and soda). It can lead to uneven skin tone, cystic acne and broken capillaries.
  5. Avoid yo-yo dieting, which worsens cellulite and stretch marks. To lose weight, devise a plan under a doctor’s supervision.
  6. Sleep on your back (ideally with a pillow under knees to reduce back strain). Stomach and side sleeping, presses lines into the face, neck and chest.
  7. Once a week before bed, coat hands and feet with an ultra-heavy moisturizer and then cover with cotton gloves and socks.
  8. “- Many women go from bar of soap to facelifts – but there is much in between!” Make a habit of gently exfoliating and hydrating your entire body every day.
  9. “- Beautiful skin is a matter of choice not chance!” Choose the appropriate home care regimen for your skin type. Stay on schedule with your monthly customized facial at RESCUE.
  10. Spend at least a few minutes in front of the mirror every day complimenting yourself! As with everything, the more comfortable you feel, the better you will look.

How to Exfoliate

Esthetician Tirzah Fowler of Rescue Rittenhouse Spa in Philadelphia, demonstrates how to properly exfoliate.

The key to exfoliation is the product and how you use it. We highly recommend that you use P50 by Biologique Reserche. P50 acts as a toner and exfoliant to the skin. It removes dead cells and impurities that build up on a daily basis, improves strength and hydrates the epidermis, as well as balancing the surface pH of the skin.

Step 1: After cleansing, place several drops of P50 on a cotton pad.

Step 2: starting at the decollete and moving upward to the neck and face, apply using a gentle patting motion without rubbing and avoiding the eye area. Allow the product to dry.

Step 3: if you have oily or thick skin, you can repeat this step once again.

How to Cleanse the Skin

Esthetician Tirzah Fowler of Rescue Rittenhouse Spa in Philadelphia, demonstrates how to properly cleanse the skin.

First, you must embrace a cleansing ritual.

Step 1: You need to select an appropriate cleanser according to your skin type or condition. Rescue recommends a cleansing milk such as Lait U by Biologique Recherche. A cleansing milk will cleanse without dehydrating the skin and will easily remove everyday makeup and dirt gently but effectively.

Step 2: Apply cleanser with fingers to face, neck, and decollete using light circular movements to emulsify oil and makeup.

Step 3: Gently remove cleanser with a warm wet washcloth with an upward sweeping motion.

Step 4: repeat above steps to complete a second cleansing.
