The Journey To Flawless Skin

Why Skin Care is important:

More often than not, people look past the fact that a skin routine is a very important part of their daily routine. You may ask why? Well our skin is the largest organ on our body so why shouldn’t you be giving it more attention than anything else. The exposure our skin receives daily should be more than enough to convince you to want to always baby your skin. When it comes to our skin we want to keep it looking radiant, young, and healthy for as long as possible and that is why a daily skin routine and monthly facials are very important for our skin’s health. In order to start a skin routine towards flawless skin we must first determine a regular routine for our skin that will be suitable for it. You’ll want to determine what type of skin you have and in order to do that you will have to give yourself a little skin examination.

Here’s a little self examination quiz you can take to help determine your skin type:

1) How would you describe your skin? (you may choose more than one)

  • Shiny
  • Matte
  • Redness
  • Tight feeling,
  • flaky

2) How do the pores on your skin look?

  • Large, noticeable
  • Small, can’t see them
  • Not too big or small, average

3) Do you experience any sort of skin conditions? (you may choose more than one)

  • Minor breakouts
  • Severe acne (painful, inflamed)
  • Redness of skin (especially when eating spicy foods, drinking alcohol, or being exposed to heat)
  • Red-Pinkish flushing of the skin (not caused by anything)
  • Sensitivity (occurs with certain product- more harsh)
  • Discoloration of the skin (lighter than normal/darker than normal in places)
  • Aging (wrinkles, laugh lines, etc)

Once you complete the quiz, keep your results to help you determine what type of products would be best suited for your skin type. Of course since this isn’t an in person consultation your results can vary compared to the basic determination below.

Skin Type Results:

  • If your skin tends to have larger pores, its shinier, and you get minor to severe acne chances are you have oily skin.
  • Skin that is matte, pores aren’t too large or small, and a skin concern makes your skin normal and depending on which choices you picked in question #3 can determine if you’re skin is normal to aging, normal to sensitive, etc.
  • Skin has redness (not everyone), has sensitivities moves you more into the sensitive skin category depending on the severity. Skin sensitivities causes the skin to get red when it a product is too harsh on it.
  • Tight feeling, flaky skin, with small, hard to see pores brings your skin type to dry. Generally, skin that is more dry with aging would be placed into the mature skin category but premature wrinkles are a concern in some people.
  • Skin that is a mixture of pore size; shine and matte will put your skin type into the combination skin type. This means your skin is a mix of oily to dry (oily in some places, dry in other), normal to oily (shiny in T-zone: forehead, nose,chin, matte elsewhere), etc.

When it comes to skin concerns:

Redness of the skin due to a cause (spicy food, alcohol, excess heat) and appears like little red bumps or like a rash means there is a high chance you have Rosacea.)

  • Reddish/Pinkish flushing of the skin that is always there and isn’t worsened by anything is an unknown condition that several people deal with. It is harmless but can be very annoying. It can make it harder to find a foundation that doesn’t look unnatural. There can be
  • Discoloration of the skin (can appear in small spots or large areas):
  • f lighter: hypopigmentation (loss of skin pigment), caused by melanin depletion or a decrease in amino acid tyrosine, responsible for allowing melanocytes to produce melanin
  • if darker: hyperpigmentation (overproduction of skin pigment), caused when melanin produced too much and forms darker spots on the skin.
  • As far as the others go they are fairly self explanatory. But if you are experiencing severe acne or premature aging you will want to get that checked out because the conditions may worsen if gone untreated.
    In order to determine skin concerns you can come in for a facial to receive more information on your skin and also to get a more in depth analysis of your skin. Like mentioned before this little skin type determination test is just to get a basic idea of where your skin type lies.

Your skin care routine and monthly facials:

Included in your skincare routine you will want to have a cleanser, toner, treatment, mask (once a week), and moisturizer (sunscreen in the morning). If you are looking to have a more simple skin routine all you would need is a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer (sunscreen in the morning). The importance of a mask is to give your skin an extra deep clean at home and a treatment product would be to help treat any skin concerns such as breakouts, excessive dryness, redness/sensitivity, anti-aging, scarring, etc. A toner’s importance is to help balance out the skin’s pH. There are also different types of toners depending on your skin type and concerns.

Although having a daily skin routine is necessary to maintain upkeep on the skin, monthly facial are still crucial to getting flawless skin. Facials help to do a more thorough and deep clean and also if you have any skin concerns that you are unsure about you can ask your Esthetician at this time. We are usually able to answer the questions and concerns you may have to help you gain or keep flawless skin. Remember throughout your daily and monthly skin maintenance you want to make sure you aren’t overdoing any of your routines. You want to wash your face morning and night but I would personally recommend having a more complex night time routine since your skin has undergone all the environmental stressors throughout the day and will need more of a deep clean at night more so than in the morning.

Outlook:

When it comes to your skin, you want to take care of it in the best ways possible. Don’t forget your sunscreen and always be aware of any changes that may occur with your skin. Treat your skin like the incredible part of our body that it is. After all it has so many amazing qualities (protection,sensation,heat regulation,excretion,secretion,and absorption) that we often overlook. Take care of your skin and it will reward you 🙂

Hopefully, after determining your skin type and knowing a bit more about how to take care of your skin, you decide to make a change and start to give your skin the attention it so kindly deserves. Start your daily routine and begin to come in for monthly facials to help keep your skin looking great! You will start to notice the amazing difference! It is time to start a new journey: the journey to flawless skin!

Why you should get a Chocolate Facial!

Facials are great for your skin as they help to clear the skin of impurities and give your skin a fresh new look! Many people look past the fact that their skin needs quite a bit of attention. It’s time to let your skin receive the feeling of being renewed.

The Chocolate facial is great for the month of Valentine’s. I mean who doesn’t like getting chocolate for Valentine’s day? The difference with this chocolate compared to the lovely and tasty Dove chocolates your lover might be getting you is that this is ALL FOR YOUR SKIN! Finally! Your skin gets to absorb the smooth and tastiness of the chocolate that you love!

This facial starts off with a cleanse that then leads into the exfoliation process. This is where the smells of the delicious chocolate start to come into play. The Chocolate facial scrub gently exfoliates the skin to create a healthy glow to the skin by removing dead skin cells and debris from pores. As you take in the great smells you get to relax as you receive a scalp massage. Once the exfoliant is removed, you receive a facial massage with a delicious smells of lemon meringue pie (Mmmm) just to add to your “sweet” experience.

Next is the best part! Hopefully you don’t get too hungry as the chocolate mask sits on for 10 minutes and you take in the yummy smells of chocolate, not to mention the added pleasureful smells of the lemon oil. The chocolate mask brings all the uncontrolled stomach growls as it provides a rosy glow and softens the skin. It contains Tamarind which is a natural exfoliant that contains tartaric acid. This helps to give a little extra oomph to the exfoliation to help you shine bright with your healthy skin and then chocolate (the tasty part) increases microcirculation so that the skin can absorb the fruit acids. After the facial is complete you will leave with the smell of sweetness still lingering.

I, Victoria, am giving these facials at an unbeatable price of only $40! Book your appointment and you’ll understand what all the fuss is about. You’ll get to be the tasty treat instead of the yummy chocolates taking all the credit! Hurry and book today before this unpassable deal is over!
