Healthy and Youthful Skin through Preventive Skin Care and Habits

Anti-aging is no longer just about reducing fine lines and minimizing wrinkles. The trick of a healthy and youthful looking face for years to come lies in skin that is hydrated, evenly toned, textured and supple.

Preventive skin care maintenance is finally starting to be recognized as a very important component in protecting and preserving the skin early in life, in order for it to look and stay healthy at an older age. It is very important to start using a good cleanser, toner and moisturizer as well as other skin care habits, like a regular professional facial, as early as in your 20s.

No two people are alike in their needs and wants for skin care, but we know that all of us want services and products that address all seven signs of aging: dehydration, fine lines and wrinkles, skin discoloration, large pores, and loss of elasticity and fullness.

What are the benefits of a monthly professional facial?

A monthly facial will give you an opportunity to work with a skin care specialist regularly. Your skin will be analyzed monthly by a licensed Aesthetician. Your skin needs may change rapidly and with regular facials and your concerns will be addressed immediately.

Some of the factors that can change your skin are: stress level, diet, lifestyle, seasonal changes in the weather and hormonal changes like menopause.

Therefore, a regular professional facial with appropriate home skin care will help to keep your skin looking healthy, clear and fresh regardless of age.  More benefits of a monthly facial include: exfoliation and better absorption of skin care products, improved texture and complexion. Increased circulation and stimulation to the skin will help with collagen production and help with premature aging.  Preventive acne treatments will help with breakouts and blemishes. Healthy and radiant skin will boost your confidence and taking an hour a month will give you the time to unwind and relax.

Regular facials are made affordable with our monthly program. They are an excellent tool in preventive skin care with great dividends in years to come. You can compare the benefits of regular skin care to the of regular exercise, healthy lifestyle and diet.

Lips Facelogic Skin Care Spa Redmond Winter lip treatment

We often tend to neglect our lips until they are dry, chapped and sore. Winter’s dry air is hard on them. One of the best things you can do for your lips in the winter is use a lip treatment regularly. First, you gently exfoliate the lips to remove the dead cells, after, apply a mask for about 3 minutes, letting it sink into the skin and then wipe it off. Last, apply a lip balm with Vitamin E and Vitamin C, it penetrates at the cellular level, replenishing, repairing and hydrating molecules, giving you soft, supple lips.

Winter Skin Care Tips for Face

December 15, 2011 by  
Filed under Skin Care

The winter season with its first snowfall has its beauty. However icy temperatures, low air humidity and indoor heat simply pull out moisture from the skin. Add to the environmental factors hot showers and harsh soaps and what you are left with is dry, itchy and flaky skin. The dehydration process also disrupts cell turnover, leading to an avalanche of dead cells and a lifeless, dull skin. Winter Skin Care Tips from Facelogic Skin Care Spa

The solution is to understand that your skin has different needs during the changing seasons and increase your layers of support with proper skin care.

1. Talk with a professional who can analyze your skin type and condition to recommend appropriate care products for your skin.

2. Use a gentle foaming cleanser or cleansing milk. Add a hydrating mask. Avoid alcohol based toners.

3. Say goodbye to your water-based summer moisturizer and use one with emollients such as natural oils, like jojoba, almond or olive. A good winter moisturizer should have humectants such as hyaluronic, lactic and glycolic acids as it will attract water from the dermis into the epidermis.

4. Layer a hydrator under your moisturizer, a serum or hydrating booster to increase your level of protection against the environmental factors. If you are concerned with pre-mature aging make sure you use a product with retinol, it will help with cell turnover.

5. Sunscreen isn’t just for the summertime. Winter sun combined with snow glare can still damage your skin. Defend against ultraviolet rays with moisturizing sunscreen and antioxidants-especially if you engage in winter sports.

6. Drink plenty of water or Green Tea with honey and lemon to boost Vitamin C and antioxidants intake. Consider investing in a humidifier.

Fall is for fantastic skin!

September 22, 2011 by

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.

Book an appointment today at C.Joy Salon, 425.577.6232 for your skincare consultation and fall skin care treatment and we will get you started on the path to gorgeous, healthy, age defying skin.

Sugaring Or Waxing?

At C.Joy Salon we believe that sugaring is usually a better choice to waxing, especially for delicate areas: Brazilian, bikini, underarm and face. The hair is removed in the direction of growth, rather than against it, like waxing. The benefits are less painful and gentler on the skin.

Also, keep in mind that when sugaring the hair follicles are not broken at the surface resulting in less ingrown hair problems. The more you sugar, the more fine & sparse the regrowth is, allowing for more time in between treatments. Exfoliating the area thoroughly before and after treatment is recommended and should also help with ingrown hairs.

Waxing is preferred for legs and eye brows. However, our staff will always accommodate your preferred method of treatment.
