Lifting The Oily Skin Curse By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005
Do you have a shine by 11 a.m.? Already dreading what your face will look like by 5 p.m.?
We hear you! You want relief and you want it yesterday. By now you know the oily skin basics.
• Use skin care products designed for your oily skin
• Don’t over dry your skin. You’ll just create more oil
• Make sure everything you use is oil-free
But when these steps aren’t enough, it’s time to add more punch to your skin care.
Add a water-based serum that also contains hyaluronic acid, or HA, a naturally occurring substance in your body. HA attracts 1000% more water than its weight. That’s good news for your oily skin because water is what it’s missing. Continued use of HA reduces oil.
Exfoliate. When pores are clogged, nothing is moving. Your skin feels dry and rough, which makes your oil glands work even harder to try and lubricate your skin.
That’s why exfoliation is so important. At home, choose a clay mask to stimulate circulation and draw out impurities. Another good exfoliant is an enzyme mask with papaya, bromelain, or pumpkin. All are excellent exfoliants.
Professional Fruit Acid Peel. An alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acid treatment will clear clogged pores, minimize size and allow much better penetration of your skin care products.
Are you sensing a theme here? Exfoliation is the key to unclogging your pores, refining your skin, and allowing products to work more efficiently.
The results are reflected beautifully on your face!

Is Your Skin Feeling Grumpy? By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005
It’s that wonderful time of year. The weather is changing and your skin is probably grumbling.
What can you do now to prepare for the colder months ahead? Let’s take a look.
How To Transition Your Skincare Needs
Take a look at what you’re using. Does your skin feel tight and dry after you’ve cleansed and moisturized? Then it’s time to swap out your warm weather cleanser for a more hydrating one.
Cool air robs your skin of its natural oils. Without these oils your complexion will become dry and dull. Step up your moisturizer to one that’s more emollient. This will help reduce water loss on the surface of your skin.
Add a hydrating serum to keep skin from feeling tight and dry, and to plump it up. And don’t forget to exfoliate! So many people think this step can be skipped in colder months.
Not so! Exfoliation clears away old dead skin cells that create a dull complexion. It also enhances the effects of ALL your other products.
Add facials! Facials work deeply to hydrate, regulate the immune system, prevent wrinkles, clarify and tone the skin.
And lastly, this is no time to skimp on sunscreen! Protecting your skin from environmental assault is a yearlong commitment.
If you need some assistance transitioning your skincare, just let us know. We’re here to help!

How To Avoid The Movie Mascara Streak Up By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005
The movie was a real tearjerker and her best friend had the raccoon eyes to prove it. But Jennifer’s eyes were streak free. How did she do it?
With a busy, active lifestyle, Jennifer liked the idea of mascara. She knew it really enhanced her whole eye area but…she just couldn’t make the daily commitment.
That’s when she discovered lash tinting. It was a perfect streak free fit for her. And Jennifer isn’t the only one. We have lots of clients that love the convenience of lash tinting for many reasons.
Some simply don’t want to take the time with mascara even though they know their appearance is more polished with it. Others have an allergy to mascara and can’t use it.
Whatever the reason, lash tinting has saved precious minutes in the morning for many busy women and given their appearance more polish.
A vegetable dye applied just once every 3-4 weeks in less than 30 minutes, lash tinting is a safe, practical alternative to mascara.
You’ll never have to worry about chick flick tearjerkers again. Ask us about it today!
