Everything I Used To Get Perfect Skin On My Wedding Day – The Cut


“Celebrities are always raving about their facialists, but what about those of us who can’t afford to go to the spa every other day? Ashley introduced me to Rescue Spa, which has been a godsend. It’s reasonably priced, and owner Danuta Mieloch knows her shit. (Oh, and Naomi Campbell was casually checking out the first time I walked in.)

Mieloch has a realistic approach that’s easy to manage on your own. Her team recommended that I invest in steamer to cleanse and hydrate my skin, so I bought one from Dr. Dennis Gross. I set the 15-minute timer and leave it running when I cleanse my skin on weekends. Since I started using it, I’ve seen a real improvement in my pore size and skin texture.

The steamer opens my pores up for the Biologique Recherche Masque Vivant, which I leave on for 20 minutes. Read any reviews on this mask and you’ll know it’s got a cult following — for good reason. Within a month of steaming, my face stopped breaking out as much. I’d even lost all the pimples hidden underneath my skin’s surface, which I’d been trying to shed for months. When I wash this stuff off and immediately follow it with Vintner’s Daughter Oil, I look like I got a facial for half the price.”

NEW at RESCUE! Hydra Pure Firming Eye Cream

“A cream that dramatically firms the eye area, reduces puffiness, and replenishes hydration.”
The skin surrounding the eye area is thin, so there is a paradoxical need for a specially formulated cream that is strong yet gentle. By combining the benefits of the exclusive Hydra-Pure Chelating Complex® with 14 powerful ingredients that stimulate collagen and prevent its breakdown, you will see an immediate lifting effect around the eye area that is sustained with continued use.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare’s Chelating Complex™ detoxifies skin from heavy metals and free radicals found in the water used to cleanse the face. Gentle enough for all skin types, this product is dermatologist-approved, vegan, and cruelty-free.

NO Parabens

NEW at RESCUE! Dr. Dennis Gross FERULIC + RETINOL FIBROBLAST ANTI-AGING MOISTURIZER

What It Is: A triple correction anti-aging moisturizer that contains the breakthrough combination of Ferulic Acid + Retinol and a trademark-pending ECG Cellular Complex™ to target the fibroblast cell, visibly improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles at the surface level and beyond.
Why You Need It: The formula provides time-released hydration as the ECG Cellular Complex™, which stands for “Elastin Collagen Growth,” works to strengthen the skin’s own regenerative ability, helping to counteract the visible signs of aging, increase its natural moisture barrier, and restore elasticity to sagging skin.

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!

 

 

Happy Holidays from Danuta!

With the holidays right around the corner I’d like to share some of my quick tips on how to look fresh, stay healthy, and glowy!

  1. Good grooming goes a long way.  Make sure this time of the year to squeeze in your eyebrow shaping, manicure, and bikini wax for a quick pick me up! Everything else seems so much easier when you have the basics down. A beautiful nail color can be your best accessory, eyebrows frame your face, and a bikini wax leaves you ready for anything (beach, bed, whatever)!
  2. We all want radiant glowing skin which is easily attainable with a consistent skincare regime.  Make sure you don’t cut corners this time of the year and continue to cleanse well, especially at night after you’ve had a few cocktails and would rather go straight to bed.  A mild acid peel is an instant brightener!  An at home alpha beta peel from Dr. Dennis Gross or P50 “1970” will do the trick. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize… this is the time of the year to go for it. Serums, Masks, Creams.  My go to products right now are Fluide VIP O2 and Elixir Glacier Face Cream, I love using them together for an incredible radiance.
  3. It’s the best season to have fun with makeup!  When else in the year can you use sparkle all over and get away with it?  Going from day to night I’ll play up either lips or eyes.  Deeper plums and emerald green for the eyes can be festive without going overboard.  You can’t go wrong with a classic red lip and a little black dress.
  4. Finding a balance with your lifestyle during the holidays can be a pain.  So if I OD on champagne I’ll have a nice green juice for breakfast and drink plenty of water the following morning, it makes me 50% good.  I usually aim for 75% good with my diet, December is quite unique and I’m happy with 50/50.
  5. It’s better to give than to receive! Gift Giving is the easiest thing for me. I offer all my friends Rescue Gift Certificates, relaxation is something I know they’ll appreciate.
  6. Holiday ambiance is important to me.  I keep a holiday candle on my coffee table with the beautiful seasonal floral arrangements my sister-in-law makes.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
