How To Solve The Biggest Problem With Oily Skin By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

The biggest problem with oily skin is the grease and you don’t like using moisturizers because you think they will only add more oil.

The reason your skin gets greasy is because it doesn’t have enough water in it. And this results to the oil slick on your face.

However, there is one product that might make you do a complete 180. It can dramatically reduce oil and give you the relief you need without drying out your skin. The product is called Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a perfect match for oily skin types.

The reason is that HA is a naturally occurring compound in your body. It ensures proper bodily moisture.

The benefits of regularly using an HA product are:

  • Helps normalize your skin’s moisture balance–that means better control over the oil your skin produces.
  • Keeps your face from looking shiny
  • Helps reduce acne-prone skin

Hyaluronic acid paired with aloe vera is even better. It soothes your skin while HA hydrates your thirsty skin.

How Does IPL Hair Removal Work? By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

What’s it really like to remove that pesky hair with IPL? Well, here’s the lowdown.

Before treatment, you should not wax, epilate, pluck, or bleach the area for at least 6 weeks prior to treatment. These treatments remove the hair root, and you don’t want that.

Do shave at least 1-2 days prior to your session. Shaving allows the IPL wavelengths to target the hair follicle and not waste any energy on the hair above the skin’s surface.

IPL light is absorbed by the hair pigment, effectively destroying the hair shaft. The best results with IPL are seen with dark, coarse hair and light skin tones. With this color contrast, the IPL wavelengths “see” the dark pigment and destroy it.

How can you tell if the treatment is successful? Sometimes, but not always, the hair color can become charcoal black and expand in size. Or, you may see a ring around each follicle a few minutes after the treatment.

These are all good signs that the heat was sufficient for killing the hair root. However, this is not always seen!

A cooling gel is used to make the treatment more comfortable. Sessions are generally quick. An upper lip takes just a minute, while underarms take about 5 minutes, and bikini areas take 10 minutes or so. For back, chest, and legs, it usually takes about an hour.

The really interesting part happens somewhere between 1-3 weeks after treatment. It will look like the hair is growing back! It isn’t, of course; the heat from the IPL wavelengths kill hair roots.

But those unwanted hairs remain in the skin. It’s not unusual for them to become attached to your epidermis. Then, as your epidermis renews itself, turning over new skin, the hair emerges and falls out. (We suggest a celebration.)

You can also exfoliate the area to speed up the process. Once the hair has shed, you will experience a hair free period for several weeks. When new hair grows in, it’s time for another session. For most people, that’s between 8-12 weeks.

Most clients see up to 90% permanent hair reduction in 3-5 sessions! Cost-effective and quick with only minor discomfort, IPL eliminates a lifetime of unwanted hair.

They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing, now do they? Sleep is essential not only for a good quality life, but also for your skin.

While you’re sleeping, your body is taking advantage of your down time. Cell production and metabolic rate both increase, allowing the repair of damaged skin. Your body temperature also rises slightly, which means that your skincare products are absorbed easier.

That’s why it’s so important to thoroughly cleanse your skin at night and apply products designed to accelerate skin renewal for younger-looking skin. We recommend a topical retinoid product clinically proven to smooth fine lines and stimulate collagen. It’s a perfect compliment to your nighttime regimen.

Remember to keep yourself hydrated. Avoid salty foods, especially before bedtime. They cause you to retain water and dehydrate the skin. Go for a high protein dinner and drink 6-8 glasses of water daily.

Beauty is a partnership, and we’re glad to be your partner in all things beauty!

Sensitive skin is the hardest to maintain.

Medical conditions like lupus, rosacea, eczema and more can cause skin to be extremely sensitive. The skin becomes easily irritated, gets redness and lumps.

Furthermore, sensitive skin can also be oily. This makes it difficult to reduce oil, and acne without causing irritation.

But the good news is, it can be done!

If your sensitive skin is causing you problems, come in for a professional skin diagnosis. One of our highly trained aestheticians will gently and thoroughly examine your skin.

She will talk to you about your everyday routine, the challenges you have had to deal with, and take a look at what’s going on beneath the surface. Along with her professional expertise. she will give you a clearer picture of your skin’s true condition.

From there, your aesthetician can make product and treatment recommendations to help decrease sensitivity.

Having sensitive skin can bring a lot of heartache and expense. The best way to start dealing with it is by getting a professional skin analysis.

Why Is My Skin So Red? By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Who doesn’t like a rosy glow? But when that glow turns red and angry, it’s time to take a second look.
There are several causes—and solutions—to calm your skin, so let’s take a look at them:

• – Irritation- Skin that is extremely dry can become red and look like a rash! We’ve worked with women who had dry, irritated skin so long they didn’t realize it was severe. Once they started using our products, which properly hydrated and lubricated their skin, they could not believe how different and comfortable it felt. Not to mention that they lost about 5 years!

• – Rosacea- Scientists still aren’t sure what causes this mysterious condition, though theories abound. Usually, cheeks, chin and nose become bright red. When active, rosacea also has pimples. Certain foods can trigger a flare up. But again, it’s very individual. Topical medications help to tame the redness, as well as laser. Good quality skin care is a must.

• – Couperose- Those small, spidery veins that creep across your cheeks, chin and nose are called couperose. They are broken capillaries and blood vessels that have become weak and broken.

Couperose is often the result of heredity, but extremes in temperature and over-exfoliating are also causes. Laser can rid you of it, but there are also products designed to strengthen capillary walls and tame the redness.

A combination of clinical treatment and skincare is recommended. If you’re looking for suggestions to make your skin more comfortable and beautiful, just let us know.

That’s what we do best!
