YouTube Tutorial: Complete Skincare Regimen

A complete daily skincare regimen is the best way to achieve healthy, balanced, and glowing skin. Watch this Youtube video to as Rescue esthetician Joanna Kula shows us how it’s done!

Cleanse: “Any good skincare regime begins with proper cleansing. I advise everyone to develop a cleansing ritual, which will serve as the necessary foundation of good skincare. Without it, you simply cannot achieve healthy, beautiful skin. Everyone can benefit from using a mild cleanser like Biologique Recherche Lait U. ” –Danuta Mieloch, Rescue Spa Founder

Tone and Exfoliate: “A cult favorite, Biologique Recherche’s P50 1970 is a magic potion that does it all. It exfoliates, hydrates and balances the pH of the skin and it’s a prep step before any skincare. For those of you who prefer granule exfoliators over acidic formulas, opt for Valmont Face Scrub and massage gently into skin to slough off that layer of dead skin cells.” – DM

Plump, lift and hydrate: “Serums are the most potent elixirs, lighter in texture with deeper penetration than creams, and they are great for replenishing. They can also extend the life of injectables by replenishing moisture on the outer layer.” – DM

Moisturize: “All skin types need hydration and a moisturizer. A good moisturizer shields and protects your skin from harmful daily aggressors to keep it young and supple. It’s like wearing stockings in the winter; very sheer yet protective. Don’t forget to use eye cream and moisturize your entire body, too.” – DM

Protection: “Don’t forget to use SPF daily!”– DM

NEW at RESCUE! the Biologique Recherche Triple Shield Sun Care Range.

After years of intense research and testing, Biologique Recherche’s technologically advanced creams, made from non-nano mineral filters and innovative plant-based active ingredients, were formulated in a complete approach to sun care.

The three-step process (Preparation U.V.) readies your skin for the sun, (Protection U.V.) keeps it safe from harmful UVA, UVB & Infrared rays and (Reparation U.V.) regenerates the epidermis after sun exposure.

 

 

 

 

Its All About Prevention


Summer time is my favorite time of year. For someone who grew up at the jersey shore its all about the beaches boardwalk and fun in the sun. When I was growing up we didn’t think or know much about sunblock or sunscreen. Those times have changed with all the information out there now on sun damage as well as skin cancer its not something we can ignore any longer. I have learned a lot in my twenty three years as a Esthetician and its all about prevention. This season at Rescue we have several products to choose from as far as sunscreen. But my all time favorite product is Natura Bisse the Cure from Barcelona Spain. This product is a game changer its light creamy texture doesn’t even feel like a sun screen its actually three products in one sunscreen, moisturizer and makeup. The tint is self adjusting to work with all skin types. So if you’re headed to work or going to that pool party you are ready to go. I’ve never been much of a fan of BB creams they always seemed too heavy for my oily skin. This product is like velvet and the coverage is just enough for warm summer days. The best part is this product is good for your skin as well. It increases collagen, replenishes and hydrates the skin all day with ingredients such as amino acids and hylarounic acid. It has an spf of 20 but doesn’t irritate. It actually soothes sensitive skin. This may become my all year round product because my skin has never looked better. So if you’re looking to hydrate, even out your skin tone and protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays Natura Bisse the Cure is the product for you. Hope everyone enjoys Summer as much as I do!

RESCUE’s New Year Trends

Healthy looking skin is at the top of every woman’s wishlist.  The best way to achieve this is to develop a good skincare routine, it has to be consistent (the biggest problem for most people). If you haven’t already tried our cult all-in-one beauty fix P50 1970 this is the time to do so!  At RESCUE we believe in products that work to keep your skin moist, hydrated, and youthful. We offer a full range of active formulas such as: AVSTRETINOLIntensive Antioxidant GelVitamin C, as well as Hyaluronic AcidPeptidesOxygenationAmino Acids, etc.  All of these potent formulas are great collagen boosters that also provide cellular repair.  A winter standout product is still Regenera II. I always say it is the richest cream on earth! Provides instant hydration and prevents moisture loss.

Maintain beautiful skin by scheduling our Signature Facial or a non-invasive laser treatment: BioliftLEDEnergy LiftRefirme, and IPL (ask for a spot treatment for those problem areas).

Nails As a Fashion Accessory. For a quick fashion update try one of our nail designs as well as Vinylux 1-week nail polish, a healthy alternative to gel nails.

Hair care is big this year.  Did you know that your hair ages as well?  We added Rene Furterer and Phyto Hair Care since our clientele knows to take care of their scalp & hair as well as their skin.

Makeup as skincare. Chantecaille and By Terry are of the very few makeup companies that approach cosmetics as skincare.  At RESCUE we like to hear “your skin looks great” rather than “your makeup looks great”.  We offer BB & CC creams and tinted moisturizers & foundations that won’t reak havoc on your skin. Schedule a makeup master class with one of our makeup artists to learn how to perfect your look.

Beauty Must-haves for 2014

  • Complexe 5 the foundation for all hair types. Did you know that the scalp has build up (eww!)? Detoxing your scalp is essential for a healthy scalp and beautiful hair.
  • Make frizz nonexistent with Phytodefrisant. Sans silicone & parabens. Enriched with a botanical plant base.
  • Regenera II, as I always say it is the richest cream on earth!
  • Foot Logix a healing foam for cracked heels and calluses.
  • Gin Fizz eau de parfum by Lubin Paris was favored by Grace Kelly. A touch of history with a lasting scent.
  • Le Grand Serum. As close to the fountain of youth as a serum can get!  Follow with Creme MSRH. Voila! Skincare couture.

RESCUE’s simple and easy approach to beauty:

  1. Hydrate. Drink water often it’s amazing what it does for your skin and your entire body, keeping it moist and supple.
  2. Breathe. Oxygen is crucial for your well-being.  Conscious deep breathing just for a few minutes relieves stress, rejuvenates your skin, re-energizes your body.
  3. Exercise. Find activity that suits you and your lifestyle. Try yoga, pilates, strength training, go for a walk, run, or bike. The benefits are amazing. Releases “feel good” hormones, increases blood flow, and reduces stress.
  4. 4. Eat sensibly. Focus on fresh complex foods containing proteins, vitamins, vital nutrients, healthy fats (avocado, olive oil) these are the building blocks of skin tissue.
  5. Get enough sleep. When well rested everything is better: mood, skin, energy.
  6. Have a hobby & passion. Doing things we love slows down the aging process.
  7. Beware of sun damage. Staying out of the sun is the most valuable beauty lesson.  Always protect yourself with sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, find shade, use skincare containing active ingredients and antioxidants for extra protection.
  8. RESCUE’s anti-aging mantra. “Everything in moderation”. From how much you eat. How often you exercise. How many laser treatments, facials, injectables, plastic surgery, etc. that you receive. Simplify.
  9. Smile often! Self confidence and self esteem are at the top of the beauty list.
  10. Give & share.

 

Do AA, BB, CC and DD creams have you feeling diZZy?

AA creams, BB creams, CC creams and their newest alphabet member – DD creams – all claim to be all-in-one creams to replace products you currently use. While DD creams are the most recent to hit the market, we’re sure they won’t be the last letter in the alphabet soup to make its way into a cream. Jan Marini Skin Research has had an AA+BB+CC+DD product for years – Antioxdiant Daily Face Protectant in Sunskissed tints!


Ultimate Summer Product Pick

Summer is in full swing and I’d like to talk about my most favorite product for the next couple of months.  You probably guessed it already, it’s sunscreen.  Here at Rescue we have an array of sunscreens to choose from.  From Institut Esthederm we have products that promote sun protection and repair (a European favorite) to Environ’s zinc based sunscreen full of antioxidants (South African approach).  Yet my absolute favorite right now is Jan Marini’s Physical Protectant SPF 45. It has self adjusting tint, suitable for any skin type. Great for oily skin since it’s zinc based.  UVA/UVB broad spectrum coverage that is FDA approved. Water resistant. Full of antioxidants but NO Parabens (a favorite in the USA).

Don’t forget a hat and umbrella and stay in the shade. Remember that staying out of the sun is the best anti-aging prevention!

Here are Five Expert Tips for Glowing, Spring-Ready Skin: RACKED Philly

As seen on RACKED Philly:

Since we’ve managed to sidestep yet another winter storm, it’s probably safe to say spring’s officially headed our way. But if your skin’s yet to get the memo, then read on: Here, the experts at Rescue Rittenhouse—a swanky Rittenhouse spa that’s renowned for its facials and new, virtual beauty consults—share skincare tips and product recommendations for shedding the winter blahs—so you can put your best face forward.

1) Cleanse
First and foremost, following a skincare regimen is so important for all skin types. Once you get in the routine ,it’s really easy to keep up with! To cleanse, choose a product that does not strip skin or clog pores. Institut Esthederm’s Pure Cleansing Gel is great for anyone.

2) Exfoliate
Use a product with lactic acid in the ingredients list; it’ll allow for gentle exfoliation and gives the skin an unmistakable glow. You’ll find all of your other products will absorb better since that dead layer of skin that usually hangs around will be lifted. For manual exfoliation, use a Clarisonic brush or a clean, warm, wet washcloth to shed dead skin cells each time you cleanse.

3) Mask
The transition from winter to spring can be a bit unpredictable, but if there’s anything we can learn from French women, it’s to take the time to mask! Just 10-20 minutes, up to three times a week is all it takes.

4) Moisturize
It seems counter-intuitive, but even oily skin needs moisturizer. Creme Dermopurifiante is a favorite because it balances and purifies, which is especially great for keeping breakouts few and far between. For severely dehydrated skin or anyone in need of a great anti-aging hydrating cream, Hydra3 Regenetic Cream is fantastic. And never forget to moisturize around your eyes.

5) Protect
If you’re going to be exposed to the sun then always be sure to wear a broad spectrum SPF! If you’re going to the beach or you’re going to have a lot of sun exposure, then up the SPF.
