Should You Go For Lash Tinting?

If you’re one of those women who are always on the go from sun up till sundown, sensitive to makeup, or are always on the rush in the morning, lash tinting might be just what you need.

The reasons above are just a few, here are some more:

  • Allergic to mascara
  • Avid swimmers, athletes, or outdoorsy
  • Mascara runs and it’s embarrassing
  • Want to look polished but not really into applying mascara
  • Have light lashes and want to enhance eyes without mascara
  • Have short lashes and want to define them

If one or more of these apply to you, tinting would be an excellent choice.

Lash tinting only takes about 30 minutes and you’re back to your day-to-day activities. You won’t have to think about your eye “makeup” for 3-4 weeks.

Dealing With Chicken Skin

Dealing With Chicken Skin

Dealing With Chicken Skin

Getting goose bumps is a normal body reaction. And after a few moments, they disappear. But what if they don’t?

These bumps are harmless, but irritating because they often resemble acne and appear as dry, rough patches of skin.

This is called keratosis pilaris, but commonly known as chicken skin. They appear on the back of your arms, thighs and your bum; it can even appear as a red rash on your cheeks. But what causes this annoying condition?

That answer is excess build up of keratin in the hair follicles. What’s not known is why. If you have a family history of atopic dermatitis, you are more likely to develop it.

So can you prevent it? Intensive moisturizing is key, even as much as several times a day initially. Look for moisturizers that contain urea. These tend to be more effective.

Consider topical retinoids to encourage the skin to turn over more quickly. We can help you there. Don’t forget humidifiers to increase moisture in your house, too.

Chicken skin is considered harmless by the medical profession, but we know it can take a toll on your self-esteem. So take these simple steps to minimize its appearance and get your confidence soaring!

If you think only the rich and famous can have gorgeous skin, you’re wrong. Intense Pulsed Light can give you the skin you’ve always dreamed of.

IPL therapy rejuvenates, restores and smoothes out uneven skin tone, reducing or eliminating a great number of age-related problems.

With IPL, the light marches right past your epidermis which is the outer layer of your skin. Then, it gently heats the cells of your dermis, the deeper layer of your skin. The different wavelengths of light go after its target like age-spots or broken capillaries.

While the heat is repairing the damage, it’s also commanding your skin to produce new collagen and connective tissue. So the down time is practically non-existent!

Extremely cost-effective, IPL is not invasive, can make a dramatic difference in your skin and how you think of yourself.

Is Your Skin Sensitive Or Sensitized?

Is Your Skin Sensitive Or Sensitized?

Is Your Skin Sensitive
Or Sensitized?

Sometimes sensitized skin can be mistaken for sensitive skin. But beware; there’s a big difference between the two. That’s why you must be very careful when choosing the right makeup and skincare products.

Like dry, oily, or combination skin, sensitive skin is something you’re born with. Usually, people with sensitive skin have fair complexions that flush easily or swell a bit to the touch. They may even get red or blotchy for no apparent reason. The cause for sensitive skin is unknown. Each day is a trial and error when it comes to keeping skin happy and non-reactive.

For those with sensitized skin, conditions such as low humidity, drying chlorine, harsh ingredients like benzoyl peroxide for acne, over-exfoliation, medications, and even aging, can cause a sudden reaction in your skin. Avoiding irritants, keeping your skin adequately hydrated, and using proper skincare for the season is important to restore balance.
