New Year, New you!
2021 is here, and that can mean only one thing – it’s time to start those New Year’s resolutions. But instead of swearing off chocolate, why not try a different kind of goal this year? Yes, that’s right, we’re talking about starting some New Year skin care resolutions.
Having clear, blemish-free skin is something that we would all love. It’s undeniable. Yet often it can feel like “the chosen ones” have all the luck of great genetics, while others of us struggle to find products that suit our skin. But never fear, help is on the way. Just by taking up a few good skin care habits, those of us with problem-prone skin can gradually wave goodbye to our skincare woes.
Resolution#1: Skincare Basics
Let’s start with the basic! In order to get your skin back on track you’ll need to start from the beginning and there’s no easier way then to start with these 5 mini skincare resolutions
2021 Skincare resolutions:
Mini Resolution #1: Wear Sunscreen Every Day
The number 1 most important rule of skincare! Wear! Your! Sunscreen! There’s no point in investing in special products or treatments if you aren’t directly preventing damage from the source. This new year make it a must that you wear sunscreen everyday rain or shine and re apply at least every two hours. Also don’t forget your hands and neck!
Mini Resolution #2: Always Take your Makeup Off Before Going to Bed
I know its tempting, maybe you had a long day at work our you just got back from a late Friday night! Whatever the reason, please take off your makeup before bed. Leaving all that dirt, dead skin cells and makeup on overnight is setting yourself up for breakouts! Breakouts that might linger or even scar.
Mini Resolution #3: Invest in proper skincare
Saving money is often a lot of people’s new years resolutions so let’s contribute to that by investing In proper skin care! I love a cheap product just as much as the next person. However, if your constantly putting 15$ into product after product that doesn’t seem to work, it quickly adds up and soon you’ve wasted hundreds of dollars on cheaply formulated products. Listen to your technician, do you research and invest in something that’s been tested and formulated to work.
Mini Resolution #4: Treat Yourself to a Monthly Facial
This ones on the luxury end. We know not everyone can afford to do this, however if you find yourself in a position to be able to treat yourself, we recommend coming in for a Facial at least once a month to really get that wonderful deep cleaning that your skin needs. If a monthly facial is a little out of your budget this year we also recommend seasonal Facials. With every season change give yourself an excuse to treat yourself and book in for a facial, that’ll give you 4 treat yourself moments a year and lovely skin to start off each new season.
Mini Resolution #5: Clean Your Makeup Brushes
Last but not least, clean your brushes. This step is often overlooked, I once had a horrible breakout that wouldn’t go away no matter what I did. Until someone recommended that I clean my brushes! My breakout was refusing to go away because I had kept swiping built up bacteria over it with my daily makeup routine. Soon after I thoroughly cleansed my brushes the breakout began to subside. So this new year promise us your regularly clean those brushes!
Resolution#2: Banish That Sun Damage
Sun damage isn’t permanent or at least it doesn’t have to be. Products and facials can only do so much for sun damage, if you never wore sunscreen growing up and only just started now your bound to have some hidden or visible sun damage. So, this new year lets banish that sun damage and book in for some lovely IPL.
What is IPL?
IPL Photo-facial (also known as Intense Pulsed Light or Photo rejuvenation) is hailed as the “Gold Standard” treatment for the reduction of pigmentation.
Age spots, sun damage, rosacea, broken capillaries and freckles can create a dull and aged complexion. With IPL you can target this pigmentation to expose fresher, younger looking skin – something we all strive for!
- No downtime treatment
- Addresses brown and red pigmentation
- Even out skin tone to produce radiant skin
- Calm the red skin of rosacea
- Can effectively get rid of sunspots and age spots
- Is effective for pigmentation reduction on the face, neck, chest and the whole body
HOW IT WORKS
The light energy of the IPL targets the brown pigment and red cells in the skin. This light is converted into heat energy, which helps to fade those specific problem areas resulting in a more even, brighter complexion with less discolouration. IPL Photo-facial has been performed in Vancouver for over 20 years, and there are many studies in the medical literature demonstrating true, anti-aging benefit
Resolution #3: Love Yourself Properly
No new year’s resolution is complete without the promise of going to the gym! This new year Let’s commit to something a little more realistic, as with each new year we all seem to just get busier and busier. If your looking to tone, tighten and reduce cellulite but without the pain of going to the gym look no further. Each year we’re fed new diet fads, workouts, slim teas or get fit quick plans and I think we’ve all had enough. This new year love yourself properly! No matter your age, your body goes through a lot, if you want to work towards a better you but without the stress of a strict workout or diet say hello to Venus freeze!
What is Venus Freeze?
Venus Freeze is a revolutionary treatment which is highly effective in circumference reduction, improving cellulite, skin tightening and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Venus Freeze uses pulsed magnetic fields, which provide you with the added benefits of increased oxygen, nutrients and blood to the skin – giving it an immediate and long lasting glow. Our Promise is to provide you with a safe, pleasant, and pain-free experience in treatments for the face and body including arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck and face.
How it Works
Using patented (MP)² technology, Venus Freeze utilizes multi-polar radio frequency and Pulsed Magnetic fields which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes new collagen to form and the production of new elastin fibres. The active collage in the skin contracts, achieving tighter skin, softening of wrinkles and reduced cellulite.
We wish everyone a lovely new year and hope to see you in for a treatment soon! Looking for more information on our skin services? We offer complimentary consultations and test patches for all our treatments! call or email to book in your spot today!
