If you have acne or rosacea, you already know you have skin that requires sensitive care.

Harsh cleansers, alkaline bar soaps and alcohol-based products can worsen both conditions.

When it comes to cleansing, it’s extremely important to keep it gentle. Scrubbing the skin actually worsens acne, increasing irritation. Use a cleanser that’s pH balanced.

For rosacea clients, moisturizers containing ceramides and lipids are usually well tolerated. For acne clients, it simply isn’t true that you don’t need a moisturizer. Your skin needs an oil-free product that adds moisture.

Thankfully, more and more products have ingredients that work with symptomatic skin. Salicylic acid reduces inflammation and helps exfoliate in and around pores.

Active skincare ingredients are more slowly released through microsponges improving skin tolerance. To camouflage redness and pimples, mineral-based cosmetics containing silica, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are wonderful for creating a smooth, matte finish.

Avoid heavy, waterproof make-up. These require make-up remover at the end of the day, which can be irritating.

Fortunately, there are a variety of treatments that also help reduce acne and the symptoms of rosacea. The best results for treating both conditions is a combination of clinical treatment, dedication to good skin care and topical medications.

We’d love to be a partner in your skincare treatment. Together, you can achieve smoother, clearer skin!

Yes, you can have great looking skin at any age! The biggest challenge is reconciling poor skin care habits from the past and overexposure to the sun.

But knowledge is power. Skin in your forties turns over more slowly and is more prone to dryness and fine wrinkles.

The good news is we live in a time where Mother Nature can be given a nudge, with the effects of aging even reversed!

Here’s how: Get chemical peels and microdermabrasion to keep the outer layers of your skin smooth. Chemical peels literally peel away the rougher outer layers of your skin.

With microdermabrasion, crystals wear away dead skin. Also consider IPL and laser for longer-lasting effects. And remember, retinol is your friend! It can be used at home to build collagen, fade sun spots and improve the over all texture of your skin.

Splurge on a good eye cream. The eye area is the thinnest skin on your body and often the first place to show wrinkles. No skimping here!

Don’t be rough on your skin. Baby it instead! Avoid over exfoliation. Once or twice weekly is plenty. Avoid using two potentially irritating ingredients at the same time like retinol and Vitamin C. Alternate; use one in the A.M. and one in the P.M.

Got questions? We’re happy to customize your skincare routine!

FAQ’s About Eyelash Tinting By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

1. Will lash tinting make my eyelashes fall out?
It’s highly unlikely. We use an all vegetable dye, which minimizes irritation. However, it’s our policy to have you do a patch test 24-48 hours before your first application, just to make sure you have no allergies to the dye.

2. How long will lash tinting last?
About 3-5 weeks.

3. Should I take any precautions after I get my lashes tinted?
Yes, once your lashes have been tinted, do not get them wet for at least 24 hours. You want to make sure the dye is fully dry.

4. Can I swim with my lashes tinted?
Absolutely! You can exercise, watch a tearjerker movie, and peel onions without the hassle of mascara streaking.

5. Why do you want me to get a patch test before the application? I’ve never been allergic to anything.
Although it is unlikely for you to have a reaction to the dye, we like to be absolutely sure. It’s just a precaution.

6. Can I choose a color the same way I do with mascara?
Yes, you can. And we have many to choose from.

7. What if I want to change to a different color the next time I get my lashes tinted? Can I do that?
Sure! You can change the color as often as you like.

8. Can I wear mascara with my lash tinting?
Yes, but the mascara remover will fade the dye, shortening the life of your lash tinting.

9. Is lash tinting safe?
Our lash tinting is an all vegetable dye. It doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals. It is very safe, but we do recommend a patch test 24-48 hours before the application to make sure you have no reaction.

10. Can anyone apply lash tinting?
Unfortunately, yes. That’s why we recommend you have a professional apply the tint. You don’t want someone with minimal experience-or none at all—to work with your eyes. Always get a trained professional for such a delicate task.

Aren’t All Eye Cremes Pretty Much The Same? By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

The short answer, no way! That’s like saying all skincare is the same. Can you imagine creating one product for oily, dry, or combination skin? Pretty silly, huh? That’s why there are different formulations of eye cremes to meet your specific needs.

Some are specially formulated for dry or sensitive skin. Others smooth fine lines, minimize dark circles and reduce puffiness. Some eye cremes will even attack all of those problems at once.

Talk to us about what you want to achieve and we can show you the best formulation for your needs. The important thing to remember is this: eye cremes must be lightweight and glide on easily.

Since most of us wear foundation and eye make-up, applying a heavier facial moisturizer near your eye area can cause your make-up to run. Eye cremes are lighter and melt right into the skin preventing raccoon eyes.

But what if your eye area is dry? Can you use oil around your eyes? The answer here is a cautious yes. Ophthalmologist tested and approved oils specially formulated for this area are best.

These are far less likely to clog the delicate tissue causing milia, or white bumps.

Did you know that snacking can actually be good for your skin? The trick is to eat the right foods every few hours to keep your blood sugar stable for fewer breakouts, rashes, and wrinkles.

What’s the secret? Well, for starters, do NOT skip meals! This just makes you tired and causes your body to store fat. When you finally do eat, your blood sugar goes sky high and your insulin level rises. And that means more oil production and the release of more male sex hormones. (In case you’re wondering, that’s a bad thing!)

Now before you run out and buy a bunch of rice cakes and pretzels, which break down quickly in your body, know this. The best snacks for your skin contain fiber, protein, and healthy fats, allowing you to maintain a steady blood sugar level.

Does that mean snacking has to be boring? Only if you consider strawberries dipped in dark chocolate boring! Include small packs of dried cherries and almonds, too.

Love your skin and it will love you back!
