Change Your Skin For Good And Be Confident

July 2nd, 2014

A big beauty myth is that flawless skin comes from only one source. Well, in my experience there is no such thing but I have found that what works is usually a combination of proven treatments or products.

In addition to the above you have to include exercise and nutrition. The overall health of your skin depends on all of the above.

When I designed my treatments I took bits and pieces of tested products and treatments that I knew worked and combined them. The results are of course a flawless complexion, that is smoother and brighter.
Here are a few rules for healthy skin and their explanation of why they work.

Also, my Fourth of July sale will end in the next four days, as we will be closed the 4th.

Combine Power Packed Beauty Routines For The Best Results

Antioxidants and Sunscreen

These age preventing duo should be in your beauty arsenal as when combined create a powerful shield against aging. Antioxidants come from fruits and vegetables and eating them regularly will ward off the signs of aging.

Antioxidants are specifically known for nullifying the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that have a multitude of damaging effects including aging.

I love this green juice recipe below! The greens instantly hydrate the skin while encouraging lymphatic drainage, so you are de-puffed and glowing.

Juicing is a fantastic way of loading up on antioxidants and other nutrients without the bulk. They will also help to strengthen the skin from the inside out so the underlying structure is supported and intact.

Sunscreen is also a well known method of keeping your skin from getting sunburned but its also a way to keep it healthy and youthful.


Using sunscreen all year round is the best defense for your skin as it will ultimately prevent sun damaged skin. Leathery skin, deep wrinkles, brown spots, uneven color complexion, are some of the more common forms of sun damage. The worst of course is skin cancer.

What most people don’t know is that the effects of the sun are cumulative and its effects are not evident in our youth.

However, antioxidants again will help nullify the effects of the sun but when you use sunscreen daily it will add another additional layer of sun protection.

Increase Collage Production: The Framework of Your Skin

Collagen is one of the most talked about buzz words in the skincare industry. And in order for your skin to be youthful it needs plenty of it.

Collagen is composed of fibers of protein in the skin. These tiny fibers strengthen, connect and support the skin, helping it to look supple and smooth. When collagen is lacking, the skin can appear thin and be more prone to signs of aging, such as wrinkles.

There are many ways to increase collagen and one of the simplest I know is by getting sufficient sleep.

Beauty sleep is not just an old wives tell as sleep helps the body produce more human growth hormones, which helps to build collagen and gives the skin a more elastic appearance.

To continue to connect the dots I will also tell you that the sun destroys collagen. Imagine leaving a rubber band out in the sun day after day. The rubber band will soon become brittle and loose its ability to snap back. Similarly your skin will do the same with over sun exposure.

Facial and Treatments

Microcurrent and LED light therapy boost cellular activity and increase collagen production therefore keeping your skin healthy and youthful.

These two forms of skincare therapy regenerate, repair and return a youthful vitality to your skin. When you combine them with other proven methods of rejuvenating the skin you get unequaled and dramatic results.

These specific treatments can target skincare concerns like fine lines etc. and accelerate the benefits of beautiful and youthful skin.

Lastly, exercise is a great way for me to reduce stress and keep me healthy. Of course the benefits for your skin are many since you’ll be improving circulation and oxygen but by also reducing stress you can keep yourself looking young!

The facial and LED light package special is great for keeping sun damage and other natural aging factors at bay. Call the salon to buy them NOW and schedule your next appointment too.

Lastly, I look forward to seeing you at the salon where you will be dazzled by how great your skin looks.
