Holiday Skincare Tips – Let It Glow!

Skincare Tips for the Holidays

The holiday season can take a toll on your skin. From the non stop eating to the late night partying on new years, our skin does a little freaking out. We are overwhelmed with stress, party planning, shopping for that perfect outfit, etc. Here are some tips on how to keep your skin looking it’s best during the holiday season.

Keep the skin clean and moisturized. Before applying your foundation, moisturize your skin with an oil free moisturize, then you can apply your make up primer if you happen to be using our wonderful skincare makeup jane iredale!. A primer along will not work to moisturize the skin. Properly moisturizing the skin allows a perfect base for your foundation. Before going to bed, always cleanse your skin and remove all traces of makeup. Never ever fall asleep without cleansing your skin. Its worth the effort to put 5 minute in to clean and treat with some type of anti-aging products such as Retin A, or GeneXC by iS Clinical! Your skin will be anti-aging as you sleep!

Exfoliate once a week with a peel or facial. We tend to apply more make up than usual during the holidays to look fabulous. A lot of ladies opt for a 12 hour foundation to keep their make up in place through out the whole night. By exfoliating the skin, you are not only prepping the skin for a smooth foundation application, but you are removing all the dead skin cells and impurities that can lead to breakouts. We suggest Cleansing Complex by iS Clinical which is full of botanical acids which deep cleans your face. We also offer our 10% Glycolic Moisturizing Wash by our private label GlowMD.

Drink lots of water. People are known to drink more alcohol during the holidays than any time of the year. Waking up the next day dehydrated can not only affect your body, but your skin as well. Try to minimize your alcohol intake and drink more than the recommended 8 glasses of water a day.

Last but not least, keep your make up brushes extra clean. We apply more make up during the holidays to get that perfect look and need to take care of our makeup brushes that are also getting a little bit of a workout. Whether it’s a foundation brush, beauty blender, contouring brush, or eye shadow brush, it has to be kept clean. Keep your makeup brushes in excellent shape with jane iredale Botanical Brush Cleanser. This quick-drying brush cleanser uses witch hazel and alcohol to eliminate bacteria and instantly dissolve buildup, oil and grime. Each time you wash your makeup brushes with this cleanser, it will leave your tools clean, soft and fluffy. This formula is also enriched with grapefruit oil and seaweed extracts to condition the bristles as it deep cleans. jane iredale Botanical Brush Cleanser is ideal for cleaning both natural and synthetic brushes on a regular basis.

Dont forget your sunscreen for your daytime parties and everyday!!

5 Reasons Why You Should Peel In The Summer

Don’t stop now just because its summer!!

We’re just going to be direct: the summer time is a great time to get a VI Peel! Disregard the stigma you may have heard from your friend or family member that it’s just not a good idea because that isn’t true. No more excuses! Check out these five good reasons on why you should say yes to a VI Peel this summer:

1) You Want The Glow (but not the Grease)

Ingredient 101:  Salicylic Acid helps absorb and control excess oil in the skin, so summertime chemical peels are a great option for those of us who are tired of reaching for an oil blotting sheet every hour.   Oily, acne prone gals love the VI Peel Purify, however all VI Peels contain salicylic so you can look forward to all the glow… without the grease.  More on the dry side?  Salicylic bonuses as a key ingredient for smoothing out the skin, giving you a poreless appearance.  Either way, we’re into it.

2) You Want a Quick Fix

Time has flown by and the wedding of the year is just around the corner. Everyone is going to be there, including that Brad Pitt look alike you’ve had your eye on since high school [sigh].  Unlike many other cosmetic procedures, the VI Peel has you prepped and peeled to perfection in just 6 days!  No need to splurge on a professional makeup artist, your makeup will apply smoother than ever on your baby skin.  You’ll thank us later.

3) You Prefer to Go “Au Natural”

Summer is the time to ditch the full coverage foundations and let your skin breathe. Addicted to your long wearing, full coverage foundation?  If you find yourself constantly trying to cover and conceal, you’ll love the VI Peel Precision Plus.  Fade away the proof of years the years of damage from the tanning bed with the pigment erasing solution ex-sun worshipers know and love.

4) You’re a Master Planner

Your time is precious and you know your way around a Google Calendar. Peel like a VI Pro and schedule your peel on a Thursday, leaving your main peeling days to Saturday and Sunday.   With proper care and planning, you’ll be a glowing goddess in time for happy hour cocktails with your coworkers the next week!

5) You’d Rather Take Two Steps Forward than Three Steps Back

Allow your skin to correct and resurface itself instead of creating more UV induced damage by practicing safe sun and avoiding prolonged direct sun exposure. Summer is the perfect time to treat and remove last year’s sun damage that you never got around to addressing.   Alternatively, you can get a chemical peel nearing the end of summer to be glowing for your last hurrah while also treating your sun damage from the prior weeks or months of outdoor summer activities.  Now that’s a win-win!

Treat yourself this summer. Call us at 540-371-9098 to schedule your summer peel!

 

Teen Skin Consultations

TEEN SKIN CONSULTATIONS

Back-to-school season can be a stressful time for teenagers. Doing well in class, completing homework while juggling extracurricular activities, making friends, and selecting the perfect outfit is all stressful enough. Classmates can be insensitive to students with skin issues. The normal school daily stressors, and to deal with acne skin may be a recipe for disaster, not to mention rising hormone levels.

On top of acne breakouts, teens may begin to experience acne scarring. Acne scars can form very easily and often without you noticing until it’s too late.
