Six Tips on how to Achieve Bright Eyes for the Holidays

We’ve all heard the saying “eyes are the windows to our soul,” but what if our eyes don’t reflect the way we feel inside? No one wants to hear “you look tired” when we aren’t! Tired eyes make us look older, and the skin around the eyes is very delicate and thin. This area contains very little subcutaneous fat tissue, making it vulnerable to fine lines, dark circles, & puffiness. Aging isn’t the only culprit. Many factors contribute to our dark circles and puffiness. Lack of sleep and stress are the most significant influences, especially around the holidays. Late nights at the office, holiday parties, cocktails, shopping & wrapping of gifts is all part of the hustle and bustle over the next few weeks. Here are a few tips to keep your skin and eyes looking bright and refreshed this […]

The Ultimate Guide for Sun Safety

There are lots of misconceptions when it comes to wearing sunscreen and how to apply it properly. We all like to have fun in the sun, but let’s make sure we’re doing it safely.  Understanding UVA (ultraviolet A) and UVB (ultraviolet B) Rays The sun emits UVA and UVB rays every single day. Aestheticians refer to UVB rays as ‘burning’ rays because they’re responsible for causing harsh sunburns on the skin. UVB rays have a shorter wavelength and can only reach the superficial layers of the skin. UVA rays are referred to as ‘aging’ rays because although they don’t burn the skin, they cause damage we can only see later on in life as age thins our skin. UVA rays are known to be the culprit for skin cancer and have a much longer wavelength reaching deeper into the skin, […]

How to Keep Savvy Summer Skin

Warm summer days have arrived, and I believe we all get a little excited to be outdoors this time of the year as we welcome joyful sunshine, freshly-cut grass lingering in the air, and crystal clear swimming pools inviting us to take a dip. The summer season comes with heat, sun, sand, chlorine, and saltwater. All of which can be hard on our skin. Soaking in chlorinated water, such as pools or spas, dries the outer layers of our skin. These chemicals strip our hair and skin of natural oils that keep damage out and moisture in, leaving our skin feeling dry, itchy, and sensitive. Before you get in the pool, try rinsing your hair with fresh water and apply an oil-based leave-in conditioner. Saltwater, on the other hand, has benefits to skin health. The ocean is naturally full of […]

Everything you Need to Know About Chemical Peels

The beauty industry is booming, and many products and procedures promise improvement in areas such as anti-aging, acne, sun damage, and scarring. Chemical Peel is a term that is widely talked about but little understood by the average consumer. I get questions quite often on what the difference is between types of peels? What are the benefits? Does it hurt, and how long the downtime will be? A chemical peel consists of a solution applied to the skin to exfoliate the top layer(s). The desired effect after the healing process is fresh, healthy skin that has a radiant glow. The speed and depth of exfoliation depend on the specific acid used, the concentration of the solution, its acidity or PH level, and the amount of time it is left on the skin. I’m going to talk only about categories 1 […]

Healthy Skin: The Benefits of Roses

It is no wonder why we as women love a big beautiful bouquet of roses. We receive them as a sign of endearment – a token of love, they uplift our spirits when we are sick or turn back a tear when given with an apology. However, physiologically speaking, there are many health benefits we can attain from roses. The scent of rose calms, soothes, and relaxes the mind and spirit. When diffused into the air, it helps with depression and relieves anxiety by lowering the concentrations of cortisol (a stress-related hormone). Within the traditional and holistic beliefs of Hindu medicine, also known as Aryuvedic medicine, roses have long been known to be a potent aphrodisiac. The mere sight and smell of rose invoke romantic feelings, which in turn boosts libido by releasing dopamine in the brain. In skincare rose […]

Top 3 Natural Skincare Ingredients

Facts You Should Know About Skincare How much do you really know about your skincare products? Labels lead you to believe a cream is natural, or a moisturizer will control your oil or a spot treatment will zap that blemish. Results depend on your own chemistry, and only science can tell you what can truly help your skin. Current Skincare Most people purchase their skincare based on marketing, which is only superficial. Big brands are not in the business of clearing your skin. They are in the business of selling you more and more products, each less effective than the one before. Breaking the cycle is up to you, and it starts with educating yourself. Things You Should Know One common misconception is that the skin will absorb whatever you put on. Unfortunately most products, even some very expensive ones, […]

Skincare and Technology: Choosing an At-Home Gadget

There’s a watch that tracks your blood pressure and a kitchen appliance for just about everything. So why don’t we use technology in our skincare routine? Based on the products and gadgets sold today, we’re living in the stone age of skincare, when our entire lives are filled with technology. It’s time to kick this old-fashioned approach to caring for your skin. Science Meets Skincare What the most skincare brands won’t tell you is that their products likely only sit on the surface of your skin, or the outermost layer called the epidermis. Sure, this can help because your skin can retain some of its natural moisture easier. But that doesn’t actually add any hydration or nutrients to your skin. Insert the need for a more advanced solution.   At-Home Devices In addition to using high quality products like CTreasure […]
