CellTeint: the unicorn of tinted moisturizers

I’ll be honest with you, I’ve never met a tinted moisturizer I like. They’re either all moisture and no tint, or they provide some strange form of streaky coverage that never quite sits right on my skin. I always have the distinct feeling while I’m applying tinted moisturizers (or any foundation for that matter) that I’m just reversing the skincare efforts I work so hard to maintain. But a girl needs coverage, plain and simple.

Is there no hope for the makeup-wearing, skin-conscious women of the world??

Fear not, because I’ve found the solution: CellTeint by Cellcosmet. Thank the powers that be for Swiss research, because they’ve produced the happiest medium I didn’t think was possible.

I used shade 01 Opal #palegirlproblems

CellTeint is awesome because it’s more than your wannabe tinted moisturizers. It’s ultra hydrating while it actively revitalizes the skin with bio-integral cells that fire all day long. That’s Swiss skincare jargon for anti-aging to the max – it actually plumps and firms the skin. How amazing is that?

Much to my surprise, this tinted moisturizer applies beautifully and evenly, and it self-adjusts to your specific skin tone. CellTeint is strong enough to provide buildable coverage for those areas that need a little extra help (we’ve all got em). And it leaves the skin with a healthy, hydrated glow — so much so that Danuta complimented my skin. That’s like Anna Wintour telling you “Cute shoes”. When she says it, you know it’s real.

What’s even better is that it feels fantastic when you apply. CellTeint left my skin tingling for about an hour after I applied it, almost like P50 does. Not in an uncomfortable way, just a nice little reminder that my skin was alive, awake and working – and for me to feel any of those things before 8am is nothing short of a small miracle. That’s the bio-cells working for ya.

It stayed on evenly all day long and never settled into my pores or fine lines, unlike most foundations I’ve ever tried. And I didn’t feel like I was clogging up my skin with makeup because CellTeint has active minerals that nourish and hydrate the skin, while making it look flawless.

Can you tell I’m a fan?

One caveat I will say is that Cellcosmet is a line generally geared towards more mature skin than mine. As a 23 year old saying this, that’s a huge margin, so don’t let that make you feel bad. CellTeint is keratinizing, which is great for skin that could use more plumping and firming. Unfortunately for me, the formula was a little too rich for me to use this product every day, but it is perfect for skin a bit more mature than mine so don’t let that dissuade you! I would bathe in this stuff every day if I could.

So come on in and see what all the hype is about, or just visit our online store at shoprescuespa.com, conveniently open 24hrs a day at your fingertips 🙂

Younger looking skin

Over my years of experience when I ask a client what improvements they would they like to see in their skin, one of the most common answers is ” younger looking skin”.

Wouldn’t it be easy if we can easily wave a magic wand and instantly tighten your skin and smooth out your lines?

Unfortunately we do not have that power but thankfully we have access to great technology including non invasive procedures that provide great results in little to no downtime. Yes, you can even receive these treatments on your lunch break!

The Refirme is an FDA approved skin tightening laser that requires 3-4 sessions spaced at about 3-4 weeks apart.  Each treatment is about one hour long for the full face/neck area.

Refirme uses elos technology which combines bi-polar energy and light energy into one procedure which makes it an effective method in wrinkle reduction and tightening.

Does it hurt? Although “beauty is pain” this procedure is a pretty comfortable treatment.  There may be some areas of slight discomfort but overall there is no downtime.   Your skin may be left slightly pink. You can apply make up and continue on with your day.

For optimal results try the Energy Lift facial which combines the best of two tightening and firming technologies: Refirme and Rescue’s signature Biolift treatment which involves  a customized blend of serums and noninvasive electrical currents used to plump and lift the skin also leaving you with a post facial glow and of course younger looking skin.

For more information, call and book a complimentary consultation.

Destressing Bridal Skin

Don’t you just love it when someone is excellent at what they do? I personally am not a big fan of sports but when the Olympics are on I can’t miss a minute. It doesn’t matter if it’s a star athlete, a house painter or a hair stylist; if they are a master they have my attention. Our very talented nail technician Anna Maria is such a master, at color selection for darker skin tones. During the summer when most folks tend to have a bit more color her “eye” comes in handy for all ethnicities. She has been delighting me lately with her selection of whimsical colors from yellow to blue to orange for my toes. But then she’ll select the perfect coordinated shade for the hands that has the palest hint of the same color but yet is office appropriate.  Mad skillz!

One of my brides just had her wedding last weekend and her skin was absolutely gorgeous. But the situation was a cliffhanger until the last few days before her wedding. For the past six months this young lady stressed over her skin so much that she would continuously breakout and then become even more upset about the breakouts. After a heartfelt talk one month ago where we discussed various methods of eliminating stress she finally buckled down and did what she had to do which was to (1) stop listening to her well meaning (but stressful) Greek chorus, (2) use her products religiously, (3) drink tons of water, (4)do anything to get those endorphins going and (5) focus on staying very calm. I explained to her that even though perfect skin is the goal she only needed to eliminate the zits. A little hyperpigmentation could be covered by her makeup artist.
When she walked in for her final facial last week she looked like a new person. Not a zit in sight and only a little residual discoloration remained. She is currently honeymooning for 10 days on some outrageously romantic island and will return with the perfect skin she desired, I’m sure.
A note to my brides-your wedding day is supposed to be fun. Enlist that bridesmaid who is difficult to be difficult on your behalf and help to keep (other) stressful people and situations away from you. She’ll love the extra responsibility and you will make her feel special.
Can Rescue’s products get any better? I am obsessed with Cellcosmet and use it on my brides-to-be who come in for their pre wedding facial. I’ve been using it on my regular clients as well for a nice alternative to Biologigue Recherche. Cellcosmet from Switzerland was the only product line placed in the swag bags for the Oscars two years ago and I understand why. Triple patented, its toner gently removes cells to unveil a subtle luminosity. The Gel Activator is cooling, perfect for summer and leaves the skin glowing like it was peeled but with absolutely no irritation. And it smells lovely. The “Beautiful Mask” is chocked full of botanicals from the Amazon jungle and results in Hollywood ready skin. It’s wonderful for home use to ensure that you’ll be ready for your close up every day.

Love Ya Much,
Linda Harding
