As you pack away your summer dresses and take out your sweaters think about your skin care in the same way. It needs different care in the fall and winter than in the summer months. For example: we recommend replacing fruity cleansing gels with more creamy and protective cleansers (depending on your skin type).
Falling leaves, cooler weather…. it’s a perfect time for a peel or microdermabrasion treatment to help with visible signs of summer skin damage like sun spots, skin discoloration, premature aging, wrinkles and dryness. These treatments will help remove the dead and damaged skin cells and increase the cell turnover while increasing the natural production of collagen. Your skin will feel alive again!
A professional peel or microdermabrasion/peel combo is a great option to jump start your skin care into the fall and winter season. Peels appropriate to your skin type will help your skin to look healthy, fresh, supple and will help to diminish signs of premature aging and repair the skin damage from summer.
You can prolong the results of a professional treatment by continuing regular skin care at home as well as using products that are appropriate to your skin type and time of the year.

With the royal wedding just days away, we wonder about Kate’s preparation for her big day! A possible queen in the making, we are sure Kate has only the best style and beauty service providers at the very tips of her perfectly manicured fingers to help her look her absolute best. Let’s run through the scenario;
HIRE A MAKEUP ARTIST: Although rumor has it that Kate did her own makeup for her engagement photos, we highly doubt she will do it on her wedding day. She’ll be nervous enough to get dressed, let alone put on the face that will be seen by millions…in HD.
PUT YOUR BEST FACE FORWARD: We have no doubt that Kate will keep it soft and simple; a classic wedding look (and in our opinion the ONLY way to go, on your big day). Your husband (royal or not) is marrying YOU, and unless you rise and fall with bright blue eye shadow, skip it on wedding day. While you may not have the throngs of photographers that Kate will certainly have, you will be photographed on your wedding day. So our advice to all brides, airbrush your foundation. This will ensure a streak and blemish free face without looking too heavy. You’ll also want to make sure you use a primer before, and then finish with a dusting of loose powder. Doing so will ensure your foundation stays put. While you might have the luxury of going to the loo for touch-ups, Kate’s face has to stay put for over four hours during the procession and ceremony.
Our royal referral: C.Joy Salon recommends scheduling our Dermalogica facial once a month starting 3-6 months prior to the big day.
EYE DO’s: Word on the street is that the lights in The Abbey are very bright and high overhead which can cast shadows under the eyes. An easy fix is to use a brightening under eye concealer. Another thing to consider is fake lashes…they look great in pictures but if you’re a crier, I’d advise against it. Nothing is weirder than a rogue lash stuck to your cheek – or even worse, your grooms. Waterproof mascara is a must…because your vows SHOULD make you emotional.
NAIL IT THE DAY BEFORE: No matter how much planning you (or your royal wedding planners) put into the big day, you’re going to have a lot on your plate the morning of. When the bouquets get mixed up, or the seating charts get lost, the LAST thing you’re going to want to deal with is wet nails. DO IT THE NIGHT BEFORE. Period. And splurge on the bottle of polish that you can use, just in case.
AVOID A HAIR-Y SITUATION: According to some British tabloids, Kate is going to have six hair stylists on hand. I can’t even image how they’ll all fit around her head. Lucky for her, she has amazing locks and we hope she lets them flow freely. But a lot of what decides the haircomes from the accessories you plan on wearing. For Kate, it’s been said that she’s trading a tiara for flowers (SERIOSULY KATE?!?!), Whatever the accouterment, you MUST try your style ahead of time. You want to feel confident about your hair, not concerned. So be sure to book a trial consultation and style it exactly how you plan on doing it for the wedding. THEN…dance around the salon/down the street/ in your house (we’re not kidding) to make sure it won’t go anywhere when you decide to show off those killer moves on the dance floor.
Most importantly, have fun! There’s nothing more beautiful, happy, glowing bride – royal or not!
