Here’s The Gold Standard For Combating The Baby Oil Tanning Syndrome

Here’s The Gold Standard For Combating The Baby Oil Tanning Syndrome By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Did you use just baby oil when you were young and baking in the sun? A lot of us did! Now we’re paying the price. But what if you could have a treatment that addressed not just one, but many problems associated with over exposure to the sun.

 

Problems like:

 

  • age spots, melasma, pregnancy mask
  •  sun-induced freckles
  • broken capillaries
  • flushing

and

  •  unsightly veins
  •  acne scarring
  •  symptoms of rosacea

 

Ta Da! That’s why Intense Pulsed Light therapy is the gold standard for photorejuvenation, or sun-damaged skin. But as you can see from the list, it also goes beyond sun damage.

 

And there is one more HUGE plus with IPL. While it’s erasing much of the damage from your youth, it’s also hard at work building NEW collagen for firmer, younger skin. This is a multi-tasking treatment, for sure!

 

So win the battle against the baby oil tanning syndrome of your youth! Call for a consultation today!

You Will Love The New Cosmeceuticals By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

A lot of products today have so many benefits. But one of the best payback of these skincare products are anti aging boosters.

Thanks to constant research, cosmeceuticals such as alpha hydroxy acids, antioxidants, vitamins, retinoids, and peptides are now a vital part of basic skincare.

These anti aging ingredients help counteract the effects of free radicals, which can lead to premature aging and worse, skin cancer.

Vitamins such as C can prevent wrinkles and age spots. However, you have to be careful when choosing products with Vitamin C. Some do not work as well as professional preparations.

But the best part is this: without adding any more steps for you, cosmeceuticals are blended right into your moisturizer.

But which one is right for you? That will depend on your skin type and condition. To get the full benefit of these powerful anti-aging ingredients, come in for a skincare evaluation.

Transitioning Skincare Into Spring

Ah, spring, time to put away those heavy winter clothes and change into lighter ones for spring.  Go ahead, but don’t forget to also change your skincare regimen as the warmer weather comes in.

As the seasons change, your skin may seem confused. The facial products you used during winter may be too weighty.

If you’re getting facials regularly, then you would’ve already been advised by our highly trained aestheticians on the effects of seasonal changes on your skin and what you should do to address it.

But if not, it’s time to come in and get a skin consult. Let’s get your skin as happy as you are with spring.

Does Exfoliation Cause Dry Skin? By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

In short, no way! However, over exfoliation does cause rough, irritated skin. That’s why we stress for you to be gentle with your home care. The harder you rub the product, the less positive results you will see. Instead, you will only damage your skin, and you definitely don’t want that!

 

Gentle exfoliation should be an integral part of your skincare routine. It helps to speed up the process of skin renewal by removing old dead skin, revealing younger, smoother skin.

 

Once or twice a week should be plenty, unless your aesthetician directs otherwise. Use circular motions, rinse thoroughly and then apply moisturizer. Remember, easy does it!

The #1 Oily Skin Problem And How To Solve It By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

If you’ve got oily skin, is it safe to say that you distrust moisturizers? You swear that they slick up your skin!

 

So let’s try a different approach here. Your skin gets greasy after a few hours because it doesn’t have enough water in it. The unfortunate result is an oil slick on your face.

 

There is one product you may find trustworthy to dramatically reduce oil and give you the relief you want—without drying out your skin. It’s called hyaluronic acid (HA) and it’s a perfect match for oily skin types. Here’s why.

 

HA is a naturally occurring compound in your body. It’s whole reason for existing is to ensure proper bodily moisture.

 

Applying an HA product regularly will:

 

  • Help normalize your skin’s moisture balance–that means better control over the oil your skin produces.

 

  • Keep your face from looking shiny

 

  • Help reduce acne-prone skin

 

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

 

If you’ve got oily skin, please talk to us about using hyaluronic acid as an integral part of your skin care.

The Secret Hiding Places Of Acne By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Acne-prone skin has four to five times more skin cells than other skin types. That means you have to be diligent with your skincare, but you also have to be watchful with hair and make-up products, too.

 

Any hair styling product that has oil, silicones and plasticizers will clog your pores if they get on your skin. So try to steer clear of these products.

 

Lifestyle habits can be a definite hiding place for acne. Think about it. When was the last time you cleaned those make-up brushes, huh? These tools are crawling with bacteria and dead skin cells, and they are just waiting to create a zit factory on your face!

 

And smoking? Get this. Researchers at the Gallicano Dermatological Institute in Rome identified non-inflammatory acne to be common among frequent smokers. They also found that teenaged acne smokers were four to five times more likely than non-smokers to have adult acne.

 

To beat acne you must be informed about the disease and how to conquer it. We encourage you to get any of our facials we have to offer.

Peels are an excellent way to pare down those extra skin cells, reduce oil and give you smoother, younger skin. What a great combination!

Do Showers Help Dry Skin Stay Moist?

Who doesn’t love a long, hot shower? Yes, they are incredibly soothing, but for dry skin, very hot water parches your body’s moisture, causing dryness and itchiness.

 

It’s best to use warm water then pat dry when you get out of the shower or tub. Follow this with body lotion or oil to seal in moisture. And, of course, don’t forget your facial moisturizer.

 

For additional all over moisturizing, come in for one of our fabulous body treatments. Think of them as a facial for your whole bod! You won’t believe the long lasting difference in your skin and you’ll never miss the hot water.

Four Steps For Overnight Skincare

posted by Lissa Logan

After a long day, you’re totally exhausted, you want nothing more than to crawl under the covers of your soft, comfy bed and just sleep.

But before you nod off, please do these four quick and simple steps to take care of your skin.

First, wash your face using the correct cleanser for your skin type. This will get rid of the day’s make-up, pollution, and dirt, preventing breakouts, aging and stretched pores.

Next, add a Vitamin A product. Collagen production in your skin decreases as you age. Apply the product to help stimulate collagen.

Then, dot on an anti-aging eye crème. The eye area has the thinnest skin so you must protect it. Eye cremes have vitamins that repair skin and lighten dark circles.

And lastly, apply moisturizer and hit the hay! All done in under 5 minutes.

Do Depilatories Really Work?

Do Depilatories Really Work?

Do Depilatories Really Work?

A cheap and quick fix, depilatories can get rid of unwanted hair. However, unlike waxing, depilatory crèmes only work well on finer hair, but not on coarse hair.

And you have to be wary when using this because removing hair may not be the only thing you get from them.

Depilatory crèmes are loaded with chemicals and melt keratin, which causes hair to dissolve.

But those chemicals don’t really remove hair as cleanly, so they grow back just as fast as you remove them. Normally, it takes three to four days, but sometimes it can come back in a day.

Plus, the chemicals you inhale can cause redness, rash, allergy or even burn your skin.

I know it sounds as if we don’t like depilatories. And yes, we admit, we really don’t. Not only can depilatories severely dry your skin, regular use can cause skin discoloration. And if you have sensitive skin, please think twice before using them as it could trigger an allergic reaction and give you more problems than just having unwanted hair.
