Biologique Recherche Fall Essentials with Danuta

Biologique Recherche Fall Essentials with Danuta

~

Fall is the perfect time of year to focus on repairing post Summer sun damage, evening out the skin tone, and boosting hydration.  Just as our wardrobe changes for the season our skin care regimen should as well.  This means layering the appropriate serums, reaching for a richer moisturizer, and finding the time to mask.

  1. Cleanse. I spend my time between two of my favorite cities, Philadelphia and NYC, so Biologique Recherche’s Lait VIP O2 is a must-have as it has a special antipollution complex. This milky cleanser is great for all skin types. Hydrates the skin and brightens the complexion.
  2. Tone.  At the moment I am alternating between Lotion P50 1970 (day) and Lotion P50 Pigm 400 (night).
  3. Mask. I love Masque Creme Biofixine because it is supremely hydrating and smoothing. It’s even incredible to treat the signs of aging around the eye area. Perfect for anyone 40+.  For those under the age of 40, I highly recommend Bio Magic Mask. It has great lifting and pore tightening effects.
  4. Quintessential Serums.  For those 40+ I recommend Amniotque E. and Colustrum.
    For those under 40 I recommend Serum Dermopore and Extraits Tissulaires.
  5. Moisturize. Creme MSR-H is incredibly nourishing and provides phyto hormones from wild yam and soy extract which makes it the go-to cream for women 40+.  For those under 40 I recommend Emulsion Originelle Regenerante.
    **Night Treatments. Swap your usual night cream for Creme Aux Acides des Fruits for one month, every other month. This is a wonderful way to repair post summer sun damage and reset the skin.  You can also try Serum Matriciel Visage + Creme Pigm 400 instead to simultaneously lift and brighten the skin.
  6. Finishing Serum(s) can be applied before or after your moisturizer. Serum Fluide VIP O2 is great for all skin types and ages.  If you want to switch it up or add another layer to really seal in the hydration look to Le Grand (40+) or Silk Plus (under 40).
  7. Don’t forget to wear a broad spectrum SPF during the day, even in the Fall!
  8. If you are in NYC you can schedule a Biologique Recherche treatment such as Le Lift or Le Remodeling Face directly with me or any one of our talented estheticians. Rescue Spa offers the same treatments one would receive at the world famous Ambassade de la Beauté on the Champs-Élysées in Paris! ????????
Skin needs to breathe…to eliminate the dead cells which clog pores and slow down oxygen exchange, this treatment is an efficient cocktail of micro-crystalline algae, silk extracts and natural amino acid. The active products are combined with modulating techniques and massage into a purifying ritual that redefines facial contours and firms the oval of the face. Your skin is luminous, firm and toned. Le Lift treatment gives an instant lifting effect.  (60 min) $200
 
 
Wider-looking eyes, more prominent cheekbones, softer wrinkles, a better defined facial contour…Remodeling Face®. Machine can perform all this magic for you. This machine uses state-of- the-art bio-electrotherapy for tailored beauty treatments. Remodeling Face®. Machine combines four types of electric currents: Galvanic current which improves the absorption of the active ingredients, low and medium frequency current which re-shapes and tones, Athermic pulsed high frequency current which revitalizes the epidermis. Electroporation, a high-frequency impulse current to make the upper layer of the epidermis permeable and help the active ingredients migrate into the cells. These four currents can be used either separately or in combination offering a wide range of personalized treatments for each “Skin Instant®”. Precise adjustment of the parameters enables the remodeling process to be activated in both the skin and the muscles. Remodeling Face® Machine and Biologique Recherche’s exclusive skin- care products are complementary and improve one another’s performance for both body and face care treatment.

We’ve all been there.  You’re a slave to the daily grind and the only escape you can imagine is a far flung exotic vacation.  Perhaps your instagram feed full of pristine beaches and tropical cocktails is to blame.  Before you clear a week from your schedule and travel half way around the world do yourself and your wallet a favor by booking a spa daycation!  Yes, a rejuvenating haven exists in Center City.  Allow us to show you the way…

Start things off with a  Scrub & Rub body treatment.  An invigorating full body exfoliation to detoxify and enhance.  Next, prepare to unwind with a sense enhancing aromatherapy massage.  Aromatic oils and light touch restore balance and harmony to mind and body.  Your esthetician of choice will leave your skin absolutely radiant with a Rescue Full Spectrum Facial.  Microdermabrasion, micro-currents, and LED Light Therapy light therapy to encourage cell regeneration, enhance elastin production, as well as immediately tone and lift the skin.  This head-to-toe experience even leaves your hands and feet pampered as they receive a Ultimate Manicure and Pedicure with rejuvenating mask and relaxing massage.  Choose trend color from our extensive collection of designer lacquers.  After a few mere hours spent at Rescue Spa you will look and feel if you just spent a week on an exotic resort… and emerge fully relaxed, newly improved and with a luminous glow.
DIY daycation – the Ritual

To begin unwind with an epsom salt soak.  Adding a few cups of epsom salt to warm bath water aids in exfoliating skin and soothes sore muscles.  Another great relaxation tool is self massage.  Warm your preferred oil and spend at least 15-20 minutes mindfully massaging the body, paying particular attention to the hands and feet.  This will help stimulate various reflexology and pressure points linked to various body parts.  There is good reason that massage has globally been an essential component of well being and vitality for centuries.We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again.  A daily skin care routine is essential.  Daily maintenance and diligence allow for luminous results, now and for years to come.  Boost your regimen once a week by performing your own facial following these steps:

1.  Double cleanse.  Massage Lait VIP O2 onto dry skin (over makeup) for a good sixty seconds. Splash. Emulsify.  Remove with a warm wet wash cloth or Konjac.  Repeat.

2.  Tone/Exfoliate/Hydrate/Balance:  Biologique Recherche P50 1970 exfoliating toner to a cotton into skin in an upward motion, repeating until the pad comes away clean.  This step alone is a game changer.  Try this technique on half of your face in order to truly observe the lifting results.

  • ***Do a double pass.  This allows for your skin to really absorb the benefits of P50 1970, which in turn prepares the skin for the next step…

3.  Mask.  Mixing Masque Vivant with Masque VIP O2  is a favorite of many beauty editors, is suitable for does double duty allowing skin to reap the brightening benefits of VIP 02 as well as the purifying benefits of Vivant.

4.  Massage.  Spend 5 minutes massaging the face with Valmont Renewing Pack in order to increase circulation.

5.  Replenish.  Follow with the serum of your choice.  For added results, mix and match multiple serums to address multiple concerns.

  • Oily Skin:  Complexe Iribiol.
  • Redness & Rosacea:  Serum Erythros.
  • Hyperpigmentation:  Super “H” Serum by 3Lab.
  • Hydration & Glow:  Use Serum Fluide VIP O2 as a finishing
    serum to seal in hydration and oxygenation. Excellent for all skin
    types and extremely important for city dwellers!

6.  Moisturize.  Apply your preferred moisturizer.

1. Prepare the skin with a thorough cleansing.  We suggest massaging lait vip o2 onto dry skin (over makeup) for about a minute. Splash. Remove with a warm wet wash cloth or a konjac sponge  (replace monthly). Repeat for a double cleanse.

2. Gently exfoliate with a scrub such as Cellcomset’s Dual Exfoliant.  Massage onto dampened skin with light circular movements for 2-3 minutes to activate enzymes.

3. Tone/Hydrate/Balance/Lightly Peel the skin with P50 1970. Spend extra time with a P50 1970 soaked cotton round, being sure to tap inward and upward with light mechanical motions.  This movement ensures proper delivery of the product deep into the epidermis.  *You may notice a bit of tingling and pinkness which is perfectly normal.

4. Mask. 10-20 min.

  • Oily/Acne Prone Skin Types: Choose Mask Vivant  for deep pore cleansing, dissolving blackheads, and keeping breakouts at bay… it’s also very anti-aging. It’s not your typical clay mask, rather it’s a probiotic mask and also gives the skin a great glow.
    • Here’s a helpful tip: Try adding a pinch of baking soda and drop of water to the mask vivant to alkalize it if you have very stubborn blackheads or breakouts. Apply only to the areas, such as your nose, that need it.  Also excellent to use daily! 
  • Combination Skin Types: Spot treat oily areas with Mask Vivant and dry or normal areas with Mask VIP O2 (even over the eye area). It’s hydrating and oxygenating. Anti-aging and antipollution!
  • Dry Skin: Opt for Creme Masque Vernix. It gives the skin a “second birth”.

5.  Replenish. Apply serum Renovateur 14 first and Serum Complexe Royal second.  Finish with Serum Fluide VIP O2.  Your skin will be positively radiant by this point but you’re not quite  done…

6. Swap your heavy moisturizer for something lightweight such as Gel ADN Silkgen.

*Very dry skin types: try layering Serum silk plus on top of the Gel ADN Silkgen

7. Protect.  SPF daily! By now we all know how important this step is. Sun exposure is the number one cause of aging and damage to the skin.

Switch your makeup for something lighter such as the By Terry Cellularose CC Cream.  For a lit from within rosy glow opt for a gel blush such as By Terry’s Cellularose Blush Glace. Add a swipe of By Terry Hyaluronic Rouge Lipstick across the lips for a spring forward look that is perfectly fresh and pretty!
