When was the last time you treated yourself to a skintreatment ? 

Regular facial treatments can have amazing benefits for the skin.

They can prevent and correct many skin issues and maintain your skin looking healthy and younger looking. My philosophy in skin care is based on 4 very important blocks that transform and maintain the skin.. fighting the signs of aging and helping improve other concerns, supporting the skin to function at its fullest potential.

▫CLEANSING & EXFOLIATION ..Exfoliating dead skin cells allows better absorption and efficacy of your skin care and forces the skin to replace those dead cells with new cells which perform better and look healthier

▫STIMULATION ..If there is a word that describes keeping your skin looking young is this one. As we age the skin becomes sluggish and it’s normal renewal processes slow down considerably, so stimulating in different ways for example : massage, utilizing technology etc.. makes the skin work more effectively.

▫NOURISHMENT .. Good skincare with selected ingredients can transform the skin and supply essential nutrients topically which are utilized directly providing great results.

▫PROTECTION.. None of the above will make sense if you don’t protect your skin with a good SPF. The sun damages skin cells and speeds the signs of aging like uneven pigmentation , distended capillaries and lines and wrinkles needless to say the high risk of skin cancer.

?ALWAYS CONSIDER that everyone’s skin is unique and the skin changes so its needs change as well.

beauty tips

Hi my friends, I want to share six NOT TO DO tips to help you preserve your beauty!!

1- CLEANSING YOUR FACE WITH HOT WATER Water that is too hot will in time damage the capillaries
2 -SLEEPING ON YOUR FACE Sleeping for hours on your face regularly, eventually can create lines & creases.
3- PICKING AT YOUR PIMPLES Pimples contain bacteria that can easily spread to cause further infection, increasing inflammation & leading to scarring.
4- IGNORING TO APPLY SPF ON THE BACK OF YOUR HANDS You can show a young face but your hands are harsh age tellers. Protect them daily with sunscreen to prevent sun spots & creipy skin.
5 -FORGETTING YOUR NECK &DECOLLETTE Your neck & decollette are an extension of your face. Include them in your skin care routine to prevent lines & saggy skin
6- OVER EXFOLIATING YOUR SKIN Over exfoliating your skin removes essential skin components, leaving it more sensitive, dry & more

I have been asked many times what product goes first when applying the skincare.
Each product is designed to comply with a different function and although some people prefer a very simple regimen this is the usual order for product application when a complete regimen is used.
Usually the norm is that products are applied based on their consistency, that is because molecular size does matter when the product is absorbed.
Smaller-molecule formulations absorb faster and penetrate deeper than thicker formulas with a larger size molecules. Hence the difference from most serums and creams.
My professional recommendation is to always read the ingredients and select the best ones according to your UNIQUE skin. A regimen that is good for somebody else might not be good for your skin.
Selecting the correct regimen for your individual needs is the key the a successful skin regimen and results…
Ready For your Skin Care Routine..

1-CLEANSER

2-TONER this is an optional step, today the cleansers are more PH balanced and toners are not as necessary to restore the PH of the skin. However they offer great nourishment and astringent qualities based on the skin type.

3- SERUM serums offer the highest amount of active ingredients to target diverse skin concerns they have a more fluid consistency and to penetrate deeply into the skin.

4- MOISTURIZER Creams and/or gels are made to moisturize and occlude hydration within the skin to prevent and treat dryness and dehydration

5- EYE CREAM The skin around the eyes is more delicate and much thinner that the rest of the face. Eye creams are made to target eye concerns such as dark circles, puffiness and lines & wrinkles.

6- SUNSCREEN This is the most important step of your skin routine every morning. Protecting the skin from the sun will prevent further aging of the skin.
