You Don’t Want A Double Dip Of This! Here’s Why

Who doesn’t love a double dip of their favorite ice cream? But here’s one double dip you don’t want—waxing!

It’s extremely common for salons and spas to do what is commonly called “double dipping.” That means the disposable wooden spatula is dipped back into the wax pot AFTER it has been applied to your skin for hair removal.

It also means it has been double dipped on many other clients as well.

Even though it is a national standard regulation, double dipping is a BIG problem in the beauty industry, and here’s why. Wax is heated to a temperature just above 40 degrees or 4.44 Celsius. That isn’t hot enough to kill viruses or bacteria.

When a salon double dips, it increases your chance of exposure to all kinds of diseases. This is simply not a standard we tolerate!

At Oasis Health & Beauty Spa, we follow the national standard regulation against double dipping. (And even if it wasn’t regulation, it’s just gross!)

That’s why we also reinforce the regulation by intensively training our staff on this issue. You are in caring, capable hands with us. We value your health and ours.

Could These Habits Contribute To Your Oily Skin?

It’s frustrating and embarrassing, and it can often feel like oily skin has the upper hand. Don’t let it!

If you’re using potent skincare for oily skin, you already know that oily skin doesn’t have to rule your life.

But what happens when you’re following a treatment protocol and you’re not seeing a big change?

Then it’s time to look a bit deeper. Certainly heredity and hormones play a large part in the over-production of oil. But there are some other “hidden” factors that can definitely contribute to increased oiliness.

And unlike heredity you can control these!

1. Consider your diet. If you’re eating a lot of junk food, processed foods, and soda, your body has nothing to work with! Even the slightest deficiency in vitamin B2 can cause oily skin. Eat proteins, leafy green vegetables and fresh fruits instead.

2. Cosmetics. Use cosmetics specifically designed for oily skin. We can help you there. They must be oil-free. Keep your makeup brushes clean. Dirty brushes are a bacterial breeding ground!

3. Is Your Skin Too Clean? Multiple washings of your face can strip it of its natural oils, leaving it tight and dry. Your skin then rushes in creating even more oil, and the cycle starts all over again. Wash your skin twice a day. Blot when necessary.

4. Moisturize before you apply makeup. This step is often skipped but it’s important! Make sure it’s an oil-free moisturizer. Support your skin’s ability to produce more water, which you need.

5. Don’t smoke. If you smoke, stop! You already know that smoking is horrible for your body. Did you know that it also enlarges pores?

6. Exercise! It boosts circulation, encourages blood flow, detoxifies and nourishes your skin.

Take care of your skin from the inside out. Add regular facials and you’ll be amazed at the difference.

Give your skin a fighting chance with healthy habits!

The Benefits Of Red Light For Your Skin

By using LED light, a burst of energy is delivered to the body’s tissues triggering a response for the body to heal from inside.

Red light therapy has been shown to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin after regular use over time, because when it penetrates into the dermis, it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin: the proteins responsible for keeping our skin plump, firm, and intact.

Listed below are some of the benefits you can get from red light therapy.
