YouTube Tutorial: How To Apply Eye Cream 

VALMONT L’ELIXIR DES GLACIERS VOS YEUX EYE CREAM:
“This is the best eye cream I have tried (and I’ve tried many). It addresses every concern around the eye area, puffiness, dark circles, wrinkles, etc. Everyone should use at least one jar as a ‘cure’.” – Danuta Mieloch

As soon as Valmont L’Elixir Des Glaciers Vos Yeux is applied, the skin is wonderfully soft, hydrated, supple and radiant. Day after day, fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, unsightly shadows and puffiness are smoothed away and the eyes sparkle with new-found brightness.

Morning and night let Valmont L’Elixir Des Glaciers Vos Yeux absorb by tapping lightly with the fingertips on the eye contour, from the outer to the inner corner of the eye, paying particular attention to the shadows and puffiness. To preserve its freshness, use within 2-3 months of purchase.

What Is Multi-Masking?

diana_mask_blog_2016

Multi-Masking = Customized Home Facial.

With increasing stress and pollution levels, most people no longer fit into just one basic skin type, making combination skin types more common and the sophistication of treatments more complex. Skin changes with the seasons and, with it, you need to adapt your regimen; simply using one mask to fix it all is not enough. 

Here are some solutions:

Biologique Recherché products have been my go-to for years now and having some of the BR masks in your at-home arsenal will prepare you to tackle whatever your skin has in store for you this season! 

Masque Vivant is beautiful all around. I wrote a separate article on it that you can read here. I like using it in the t-zone for the multi-masking purpose, and it works on all skin types! It contains high concentrations of yeast, cucumber, and witch hazel extracts that give it purifying and balancing properties. 

Masque VIP O2 is magical! Having an oxygenating effect, it is hydrating, radiance revealing and amazing for reducing dullness and fatigue in drier, stressed out skin. I like using it under and around the eyes. The formula is rich in moisturizing botanical ingredients and contains an Oxygenating Complex which stimulates epidermal regeneration and revitalizes the skin. Quick tip: use a pea size of Masque Vernix; apply it on the lips for immediate dryness reduction.

Masque Biomagic is also great for an instant lift! It can be used all over before a night out for its purifying and tightening properties and can also be applied on the chin and forehead during a multi-masking session. It is an energizing face treatment formulated with a subtle combination of mineral and terrestrial ingredients. It leaves the skin glowing, soft and purified.

For the Valmont admirer, Renewing Pack is nothing less than excellent! I save it for the night before special events or as a Sunday quick, pick-me-up treat. It’s rebalancing formula gives the skin an instant beauty boost! A Renewing Pack could be used in combination with the Purifying Pack and Clarifying Pack for the multi-masking purposes. Application varies based on your specific skin needs. 

 Having at least three of these masks in your medicine cabinet can give you a customized facial treatment at home any time you crave it!

Remember, everyone’s skin is unique! Use masks in the areas needed with a benefit in mind or use all over and your skin will thank you! I hope the multi-masking will become as integrated part of skincare maintenance for you as it did for me.

Your esthetician and masking connoisseur at heart,

AS A TRIBUTE TO HYDRATION… VALMONT PARTNERS WITH ONE DROP, FOR SUSTAINABLE ACCESS TO SAFE WATER

hydration ritualFaithful to its worldwide commitment to well-being and openness to the world, Valmont mobilizes its resources in North America to sponsor ONE DROP’s crucial activities.

The concept:
From March 1st to June 30th in North America, for the sale of any of the seven products of the hydration line in North America, Valmont will donate $5.00* to ONE DROP. And will promote the through unedited exposure across all its North-American retailers and SPA networks. As Didier Guillon (President of the Valmont Group) states, “this partnership embodies a celebration of water and its virtues, and serves our commitment to share our success with the community”.

Why ONE DROP:
For Valmont, granting “sustainable access to safe water” resonates as evidence. A mission one should resolutely adopt, and support by all means, for the sake of everyone around the world, at all times. A key vital element for human beings, water also plays a central role in anti-aging fight. 100% aligned with the association’s culture and values, Valmont has been supporting ONE DROP since 2013, with targeted charity events. In Montréal and Québec, the brand has organized three art auctions, sold various items edited by ONE DROP and made direct donations, for an overall amount of CAD $20’000.

 

What’s the deal with Biolift?

Biolift is essentially one giant upgrade to your traditional classic facial here at Rescue, and here’s why: electricity!! In the City of Brotherly Love, where our own Ben Franklin first harnessed the electric power of lightening, we here at Rescue are doing essentially the same for your face.

Sound a little intense for you? I thought so too. So I booked myself a Biolift with our very own esthetician Joanna Kula (Ben Franklin was booked for the day) to test it out – her credentials are pretty stacked, so I knew I was in good hands.

We started with a little Lait U cleanse, which for the record feels 1000 times better when a professional applies it. Joanna followed with the Valmont Face Scrub, full of tiny exfoliating granules that left my face feeling buffed clean and new, not to mention it smells like a dream. Of course, the ever-renowned P50 1970 followed. Joanna basically gave my face a bath in this toner, pressing the drenched cotton round into my skin to really deliver the product (a technique I’ve been trying to replicate). I can’t actually afford to spread that much P50 on myself every day, nor does Joanna recommend it, but for the occasional facials, the P50 party on my face felt phenomenal.

Then for the big shebang: the Biolift!!!

The electric current is delivered through two sponges that Joanna keeps in constant motion on the face. In areas that could use a little extra love, like the eyes, frown lines, jawline or the brow, she plumps the skin by using a pumping motion to really activate the muscles. That’s the sweet thing about Biolift – the electric current activates muscles in the face, penetrating the layers of the skin. Joanna explained it like this: Biolift is like going to the gym. If you work your muscles at the gym one time, you aren’t going to see lasting results. But if you go all the time, your muscles will build. And when its muscles on your face you’re beefing up, that means bye bye sagging skin, hello cheekbones!

And if you’re closer to my age and don’t quite have wrinkles that need filling or a jawline that needs tightening, fear not!! Biolift is still an amazing service for you. Not only will those few stress lines be filled for your big event – like seriously by permanent brow furrow was erased – but you will walk out of there with glowing, radiant skin. My face felt baby soft (it still does, a week later), fuller in all the right places, and finally hydrated possibly for the first time in my life. And it’s all thanks to the fact that Biolift’s electric currents send the products already on the skin even deeper into the epidermis – more so than a normal facial could. And who couldn’t benefit from that?

I cannot stress how beneficial Biolift is for younger women, as well as women with more mature skin. If you don’t believe me, take it from Joanna, who says “It is a great preventative treatment, especially for those who want to avoid plastic surgery later on. It helps to combat not only the effects of gravity on the face, but also helps stimulate collagen production, which is the reason why skin becomes saggy in the first place. Women start to lose collagen very rapidly in their 30s and it just goes downhill from there, which is why prevention is the so important early on.”

Boom.

After the Biolift treatment, she spread Oligo-Proteines Marines Serum over my skin (amazing for dark circles), followed by Vip O2 Creme (light and oxygenating), finished with Serum Fluide VIP O2 for that million dollar glow.

 

If you’ve got a big night out on the horizon, I cannot recommend this service more. It’s the perfect quick lift for any special occasion that will have people begging you for your skincare regimen. In the wise words of that guy from Men’ Warehouse, “You’re gonna like the way you look. I guarantee it.”

Weird Skin Ingredients to Try Before Everyone Else

Salmon sperm might not sound as pleasant as, say, silver, but according to this study, it might be the savior your skin is missing. In the study, researchers asked male subjects to rub “DNA-Na from salmon milt” (a.k.a. salmon sperm) onto their skin for 12 weeks. By week four, skin elasticity was “improved significantly,” water content had increased, and more the 90 percent of the subjects “felt improving roughness of the skin.” Plus, it promoted the production of hyaluronic acid.


The DNA that is used by Valmont comes from the Canadian
salmon milt. Thanks to a patented extraction process, its molecular structure remains intact. The DNA is said to be « HP » which means highly polymerized. When ingenuously combined with three essential macro-elements (Magnesium, Calcium and Sodium) HP DNA becomes Triple DNA. Selected for their oxygenation and cellular regeneration properties, these three macro-elements provide the DNA molecule with the benefits of the mineral world.

Fermented foods—think kimchi, kombucha, sauerkraut, and plain yogurt—may not smell pleasant, but they’re full of enzymes that promote a variety of health benefits (healthy digestion, improved immunity, and more). Fermented skin products follow the same line of thinking, and are already a huge trend in Korea (a.k.a. they’re bound to make their way to the U.S. in the next year or so). Here’s the gist: Skincare products with fermented ingredients actually pack a more potent punch because the fermentation process makes the nutrients more concentrated, and thus more easily absorbed. The most common fermented ingredients? Fruits, plants, herbs, and yeast. For example, Biologique Recherche’s Creme Dermopurifiante and Masque Vivant are made with brewers yeast.

“If you haven’t gotten one of Rescue’s cult-adored facials yet, go. Run. (Yes, we all swear by them.) If you have gotten one, then you’re already probably familiar with Valmont, one of the luxe product lines the spa carries and swears by. And for good reason: Valmont’s Renewing Pack gives you an insta-glow. But with all the skin care products out there—BB creams, CC creams, masks, exfoliants, serums—it can be tricky to decide what you should be slathering on your skin, when you should be using it, and which products are better left alone. Rescue Spa to the, er, rescue.

Tomorrow (Thursday, March 27th) from 10am to 7pm and Friday, from 10am to 6pm, head to the spa’s newish location—curated/designed by brilliant art curator Eileen Tognini, which gives it total cool cred—and get a free, in-depth skin analysis by a Valmont ambassador. The beauty expert will measure your skin’s hydration levels, the depth of your fine lines, and any UV damage you might have, and then she’ll work with you to nail down your perfect skincare regime and figure out which products you actually need. RSVP by calling 215-772-2766.”   –Philly Mag.com:  Shoppist
