The 28 Day Challenge!

Will you take the challenge? What if I told you, you have the power to change your skin drastically in 28 days. Ever wonder how your Rescue esthetician keeps her skin glowing and plump, all year round? If you’re simply just cleansing and moisturizing, and especially if you’re using a moisturizer with an SPF built in, chances are your skin is not showing it’s best self.

Imagine an artist using only two colors of paint on a canvas, how limited they would be, or a chef with only two ingredients, how bland their meals might taste. That same logic applies to the skin. Not unlike the painter who needs to layer colors, we too encourage layering in our Rescue skin care regimens. Lines will become less defined, pores will appear smaller, and you will have a glow that gives the illusion of more youthful skin.

The 28 day challenge= cleanse + exfoliate + serum + moisturize + sunblock = Amazing skin!

The layering process begins with the cleansing process, milk, foam or gel. A Rescue favorite is the Osmoclean Pure Cleansing Gel by Institut Esthederm. You and your esthetician can decide what’s best, I encourage switching seasonally.

Next, you will want to exfoliate, we recommend the amazing P50 1970 by Biologique Recherche, but there are other great ways to exfoliate. For example, the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Pads are an excellent alternative. This step will also count as your toner step.

Then, we have serum! Serum is a wonderful way to specifically resolve your skins weak points. Serums supplement your skin much like vitamins supplement your body. We don’t rely on food alone to get everything we need, so we take vitamins, herbs and/or juice. Serum does exactly that! Everyone can benefit from serum, regardless of skin type. There are some serums that are considered “finishing serums”, which means you add them to the end of your routine to seal and protect the skin from the elements. Refer to your Rescue esthetician for guidance on what serums are best for you, and when to use them.

Next we have moisturizer. We highly encourage separating your SPF from your moisturizer. It may seem a bit unorthodox, but the reason is simple… Molecules! Everything has a molecular structure, and SPF’s have a much larger molecular structure, which is part of why they protect us from the sun. They sit topically and shield us from harmful rays, BUT, long term use of this kind of product can cause skin to become clogged, lethargic and even wrinkled from dehydration. You want to feed your skin with a moisturizer that will penetrate deeply, nourish as well as, balance the skin. Using an SPF moisturizer alone will not achieve these results. Mixing your serums and moisturizers together is an amazing way to strengthen your skin, as well as, emulsify your cream for better absorption. Next time you go to moisturize, try a few drops of serum mixed into your cream. Remember to always use an upward stroke when moisturizing or masking. Like yoga or physical therapy, you want to counter stretch those muscles which increases blood flow, firmness and drainage.

The final layer is SPF, of course. Be sure that your block says “broad spectrum” on it. CC, BB or tinted SPF creams are also great, but keep in mind they can have a very low SPF. Depending on the season, you may want to layer with another SPF powder/bronzer, or simply use a sunblock following your non-SPF moisturizer. I encourage all clients to try our Dr. Dennis Gross CC Cream, they just reformulated their product and it’s a great way to even out skin tone, as well as protect.

Feeling overwhelmed yet? Well fear not, Rescue has an amazing staff just waiting to help, and we have lots of options with a variety of price ranges. As an incentive to get started on your 28 day challenge, Rescue is giving 10% off on all serums if you mention this blog!

Spring Renewal

Spring is the best time to receive a peel.  Long gone are the days that receiving a peel equals red, blotchy, burned skin like it was in the early 90’s.  These days peels are favored for anti-aging by most dermatologists and estheticians. They provide instant results very effective in evening out skin tone, diminishing fine lines, and pore tightening.  So either try a peel at home with Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel (combo of lactic, glycolic, salicylic, and citric in one) or P50 “1970” followed by Lotion Kerato-Regulartrice (combo of extremely effective natural based acids from apple, grape, ginger, and sugar cane). Treat this as a one month beauty booster since over doing it with peels is not recommended.  Still the best way to start your peel routine is to receive a treatment with a Facial at Rescue. We offer a medical grade Alpha Beta Peel (combo of lactic, glycolic, salicylic, and citric in one), a TCA Peel (Trichloroacetic Acid), or a Fruit Acid Mask by Biologique Recherche (lactic and fruit acids)

That’s why we created a Spring Renewal Package designed to give you these great benefits from all the peel choices available. Your esthetician will help determine the best treatment for your skin type to ensure beautiful radiant skin!



Spring Renewal

Spring is my favorite time of the year.  It’s the best time to renew your skincare routine. Out with the heavy creams, old makeup, and dead skin. There are many ways to get rid of that dead skin, but my favorite is our High Performance Facial where we perform a heavy duty microdermabrasion followed by a strong peel.  To achieve similar results at home use an exfoliant every other day for 2 weeks followed by an alpha beta peel pad or P50 “1970” with Mc110 as a booster, it really does the trick. I don’t generally recommend over-scrubbing and peeling, yet this time of the year it’s necessary for fresh dewy spring skin.  Switching your moisturizer and serum is appropriate as well. I prefer lighter textures such as Hydra3 Serum and Cream packed with triple hyaluronic acid which naturally occurs in our skin. It’s plumping, hydrating, and rebuilds the skin structure. For those who use hyaluronic injections like Restalyne and Juvederm, hyaluronic acid has been proven to extend the results.  Since I don’t use injectables I love this serum and cream combo for a topical pick-me-up. For my evening routine I’ve been using Corseting Serum and Polymatrix Cream.  This duo is an instant lifter. I’ve noticed smoother lines and tighter pores, it works like Botox in a bottle for me.

With all the wonderful makeup colors this season it’s hard to choose.  As far as I’m concerned anything goes like dark lipstick even reds, it just depends on the mood and the occasion.  Yet skin should be pretty and natural.  I’ve traded my usual foundation for the Unifying Cream by Valmont. It’s the ultimate tinted moisturizer for an instantaneous beauty boost!

Last but not least this time of the year the sun is really dangerous although it doesn’t feel that way. Let’s all remember to use a broad spectrum sunscreen every day!

Spring is here!

It’s time to change out of our winter wardrobes and bring on a fresh new look that calls for showing off more skin!  Your skin needs some extra TLC this time of year to shed the buildup and dullness of winter, to reveal a smooth and vibrant complexion.  A great way to achieve this healthy complexion is by giving yourself a head-to-toe scrub, for this I highly recommend scrubbing with Thermes Marins de Saint-Malo Sea Body Scrub followed by Thermes Marins de Saint-Malo Skin Drink Body Cream.

I would love to announce that at Rescue Spa we’re offering our Renewing Facial: a specially targeted treatment with microdermabrasion, a light peel, hydrating mask, and lotions & potions that leave your skin smooth, plumped and ready for a close-up.  For a D.I.Y. approach at home I suggest MDskincare Alpha Beta Extra Strength Peel towelettes that visibly reduces wrinkles, fades dark spots, and minimizes pores.  Follow with Institut Esthederm Aqua Diffusion Care Cream that constantly irrigates your skin.  And if you’re yearning to get a glow without the sun damage try the brand new Alpha Beta Glow towelettes by MDskincare.  It’s an anti-aging exfoliating self-tanner pad with Active Vitamin D.  It works instantly and you’ll feel like you’ve spent a day at the beach!  Remember the sun is out everyday, so don’t forget your daily sunscreen.
