When you think of snacking, you probably think of junk food like pretzels and ice cream. But did you know that some snacking is actually good for your skin?

Eating every few hours is a good way to keep your blood glucose, or blood sugar, stable.

That means fewer breakouts, rashes and wrinkles. But what snacks help your skin? Those that contain fiber, protein and healthy fats.

Instead of opting for rice cakes or pretzels, which break down quickly in your body, choose nuts or hummus with a gluten-free cracker.

Strawberries with dark chocolate are also a sweet treat. But if the berries aren’t in season, just go for a small amount of the dark chocolate. Research shows that it helps us have smoother, moist skin. Plus, cocoa is high in antioxidants.

Nuts, which are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, have the ability to diminish wrinkles! Choose walnuts, almonds, pistachios and hazelnuts. They are rich in omega 3’s and offer skin-plumping benefits, too.

Sweet potatoes are also rich in vitamins C and A. Both are essential for healthy glowing skin. Choose sweet potato chips to help you get and keep great skin. The important thing here is to gradually move away from very processed snacks.

Initially, you might not feel as satisfied, but as your tastes change—and they will—you’ll find you eat less and look healthier!

Ask anybody with combination skin, it can be a nightmare! With both oily and dry conditions, you really have to treat both for your skin to be happy. That’s not as hard as it sounds, thankfully.

Our skincare products are designed for all skin types. And that means we can effectively treat combination skin without a lot of hassle. Set up a skin consult and share with us your challenges. We’ll tailor a home care program just for you.

Also consider these tips for taming combination skin. You might find them surprising. Be sure to bring your questions with you to your consult:

• Exfoliate regularly. This will reduce oil production, clear pores and remove drier, flaky skin. And your make-up will perform better, too! But how much exfoliating do you need? Once we see your skin and its condition, we can guide you there.

• Use a toner. And no, we aren’t talking Sea Breeze or benzoyl peroxide. These products strip your skin. Go with a toner that has real science behind it like our line. Our toners have anti-inflammatory agents, vitamin C and soothing ingredients that nourish and balance combination skin.

• Embrace oils. Surprised? Your skin is composed of oil and its constantly seeking to balance oil production properly. Using “oil free” products just encourage your skin to rush in and make more, as well as blemishes and breakouts. Use a high end oil which has vitamin E and essential fatty acids on the drier areas of your skin. Again, we can counsel you further on this.

• Use an all natural mineral make-up line. This will keep the dry and oily parts of your skin in harmony.

Be patient. It may take three months for changes to occur. However, we have other treatments that can cut that waiting period down dramatically. Be sure to ask us about them!

If you have rosacea, you already know how careful you have to be with any skincare products. So it’s no wonder rosacea sufferers shy away from facials.

Sadly, some professional treatments like chemical peels and microdermabrasion are simply too harsh for this delicate skin condition. Not so with facials!

Performed by a trained aesthetician, a facial will not aggravate or worsen the condition. Quite the opposite. Once your dermatologist has diagnosed rosacea and prescribed medication to help control symptoms, many recommend professional facials to further soothe irritation and calm redness.

And that’s exactly what a rosacea facial does. Every step is designed to cool, calm, protect and soothe. A direct benefit is a facial’s ability to rid your body of toxins, which helps your skin to function more efficiently, a real plus for calming such an unpredictable skin condition!

A rosacea facial will also enhance the effects of the skincare products you are already using. And did we mention how relaxing facials are? You have nothing to lose except irritation, redness, and inflammation.

Have you ever wondered why, when you get a facial, your aesthetician cleanses your skin twice?

No, it’s not necessarily a special method for skin care. However, it is an excellent practice for getting and keeping good skin.

This is especially true at night. Think about it.

Not only is your skin working during the day by continuing to turn over new skin, you’ve also got:

  •  Make-up
  •  Exposure to chemical toxins like pollution
  •  All the stuff floating around in the air at your work place and your home!

And, if you don’t wear make-up at all, that means you have nothing protecting the skin, so more dirt and debris collect like dust on your face!

That’s why cleansing twice is nice. The first wash is called a pre-cleanse, removing the daily build up of dirt, oil, make-up, etc.

But this step is not always enough to thoroughly clean pores. That’s why we always recommend a second wash to deep cleanse the skin.

A two-step cleanse morning and evening is an excellent habit to develop. It helps remove excess oils, dirt and debris that your skin is exposed to overnight. (also from your pillow!)

The more you love your skin, the more your skin will love you. And that will be reflected in your beautiful face!
