Our eyes are one the most sensitive areas on our bodies. Protecting your eye area is a very important part of your daily skin care routine.
Winter Skin Care Tips – Eyes
During the winter, when the days are shorter we spend more time inside, often under florescent lighting. The cold air has low humidity and the heating systems in our homes dry out our eyes. All these factors contribute to our eyes tending to look tired, red and puffy.
We recommend doing an eye mask with green tea or cucumber. A collagen eye mask will not only sooth your eyes but will also help with preventing signs of premature aging. Use an eye cream daily and treat your eyes with care.
If you do not thoroughly cleanse your skin, it will look ruddy and un-healthy and can result in minor skin irritations and problems. Your skin type is determined by your age, sex, genes and environment. How you take care of your skin will show on your hands, face and body. It is never too late or too early to start caring for your skin – to accomplish that glow that enhances your beauty.
Here Are Tips For Choosing The Correct Cleanser For Your Skin:
- Shiny and oily skin that is susceptible to pimples and other blemishes should be cleansed by using a “foaming wash”: this offers a clean after using and will not strip your skin of its natural, beneficial oils.
- Dry skin, with a tight feeling, no shine and no open pores, should be cleansed with“cleansing milk” which is formulated for dry skin. Dry skin needs a gentle cleansing formula that will add moisture and replace lost oil in the skin that is replenished by most cleansing milks.
- Combination skin refers to skin having an oily “T zone”, meaning the forehead, mouth, chin and nose. This area of the skin normally has large and open pores and the cheeks are generally normal or dry. Use a cleansing gel to clean your face as will cleanse your skin gently and will not leave your skin harsh and dry after cleansing.
- Mature skin or skin that which is losing its “elasticity”. With this type of skin, facial lines will be apparent on the skin’s surface the skin tends to be very dry. A vitamin “E” rich “cleansing milk” will be perfect for this skin type, it provides nourishment for your skin.
Facial Peels, Scrubs And Exfoliants;
Scrubs and exfoliants are generally formulated with a creamy base that contains fine grainy elements. The finer grains, the more efficient it is in exfoliating the face as it lifts out dirt particles that clog the pores.
Dermatologists recommend using peels, exfoliant and scrubs once a week to deeply clean the pores.
Fine granule exfoliants are gentler on the face than those with larger granules that can irritate or scratch your skin. Peels are generally applied and left on the face to dry for approximately 15 minutes or so before peeling them off. Choose mild peels to avoid irritation.
When problems arise during the use of these products, stop their use and immediately consult a dermatologist.
What is a Brazilian? It is the removal of all pubic hair with waxing.

What can I expect? Will I have some irritation and redness? Irritation and redness are common responses, due to the histamine reaction caused by the removal of the hair by the root. You will experience some discomfort. We suggest maintenance of every 3-4 weeks which reduces the thickness of hair re-growth. If you keep up a regular schedule of hair removal every 3-4 weeks your discomfort level will decrease.
Before and After Care instruction for waxing:

Work your Waves:
Play up your natural assets if your wedding is outdoors and your hair tends to be frizzy, a pulled back ‘do’ can be the perfect touch to your perfect dress
Curling your lashes makes them two to three times longer. So, before adding that luxurious mascara try using a metal lash curler to pump up those lashes.
Detox to Depuff:
Consider a detox program to rid your system of the negative effects of your food. These allow you to eat healthy and de-puff – helping you look younger and more energized.
Lose the Shampoo:
Avoid shampooing your hair the day of the wedding in order to keep your hair the perfect texture to maintain and style appropriately. It will also hold its shape far better throughout your big day!
Drink to Radiance:
We have all heard the experts say that drinking eight 8-oz. glasses of water a day will improve skin’s luminosity in no time. Severely dehydrated skin can be the cause of significant stress.
Focus on Your Skin
Your makeup will only look as fabulous as your skin does. Professional facials are essential to keep your skin in tip-top shape. In addition, regular skin care at home is also recommended. Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize daily in order to keep your face hydrated and radiant! Don’t forget your sun screen. Tip: use a daily moisturizer with SPF like PTR oil free moisturizer or Eminence Vanilla, both available at Facelogic Redmond.
Use Bronzer Sparingly
Don’t over-do the fake tan look! It is all about the hint of color. Just fluff some bronzer over your cheekbones and along your jaw line.
Skin-warming cheek color will complete any look! Though, the older you are, be mindful that the rule of thumb for applying blush is to apply the color higher up on your cheekbones for instant definition.
