Anti-Aging Skincare Program – Week 2

 

Anti-Aging Skincare Program

 

Week 2

 

Last week Mary began her Anti-Aging Skincare Program and let us come along for the ride with her. She received the first facial in the program, The Age Summum, which helps fight signs of aging on the surface level. This week Mary received The Lift Treatment, which aggressively fights signs of aging under the surface by using a micro-current to stimulate facial muscles.
 

 

Mary’s Week After Her First Treatment

 

Mary spent some precious “alone-time” with her kids, and even said that her husband complimented her on how her skin looked. Mary expressed seeing “immediate results” after receiving her first facial. “My skin felt lifted and tighter.” This is due to the Pure Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Pro-Collagen, which stimulate the synthesis of collagen, fight skin slackening and smooth wrinkles. After a few days had passed, Mary reported the her skin appears to be more “plump, full and hydrated.”

At Home Skincare Routine

 

Mary truly understands that any good skin treatment goes hand-in-hand with good at home care. That being said, her at-home skincare regime is not complicated. In the morning, she cleanses her skin with the Guinot Brightening Cleaner and follows with Guinot Age Logic Cellulaire as her daytime moisturizer. In the evening though she does step up her game a bit, she uses the same products in the evening as she does in the morning, but also includes Guinot Time Logic Serum before putting on her moisturizer and then uses Guinot Age Logic Yuex around her eyes. “I always remove my makeup before going to bed.”

Our refreshing milk cleanser and toner, Lait Hydra Fraicheur  and Lotion Hydra Fraicheur  are great for all skin types. With Aloe Vera as the main ingredient, this combo helps calm and hydrate your skin after air travel or sun exposure. The milky gel-like texture also makes it great for gently removing makeup. Following up with the refreshing toner to remove any makeup and cleanser residue will leave the skin feeling fresh and clean.

Summer is a great time to indulge your skin, I like doing this with a mask. Guinot has three travel size masks, and they are all amazing. The Anti Fatigue Mask is great for perking up and brightening dull skin, especially during and after flying. It contains cold essential oils such as eucalyptus and mint to refresh and bring your skin back to life. Mask Hydra Beaute is also a wonderful mask. If you have dry or dehydrated skin, this mask will bathe your skin in relaxing moisture, giving you back your summer glow. The last travel mask that Guinot has is Mask Vital Antirides, this is ideal for mature skin. It erases signs of fatigue and reinforces skin elasticity.

The Longue Vie Mains is a great hand cream to keep in your purse or car. It makes your hands feel smooth and moisturized, but never greasy. It also helps with fading mild hyper pigmentation on the backs of hands, cause no one wants sun spots.

 

 

Travel size creme hydra beaute

 

 

Our Creme Hydra Beaute is a very moisturizing yet light cream. It’s perfect for summer weather since it doesn’t feel like you have a heavy layer of moisturizer on your face.

 

 

travel size hydra tendre

 

 

Hydra Tendre cleansing cream is one of our most popular cleansers, and my personal favorite at the moment. It makes so much sense for this to come in a travel size. This cleanser is gentle yet works wonders for skin that gets oily in the summertime. With the main active ingredient being Aloe Vera Extract it leaves skin feeling revived and refreshed.

 

 

Travel size Gommage Grain

 

One important thing to remember is the summer is to exfoliate your skin on a weekly basis. Between makeup and moisturizers, sunscreen and pollution, your skin has a lot built up on the surface. For those of you who have sensitive skin or don’t like the traditional grainy exfoliators, try the Gommage Biologique. This is an exfoliating peeling gel that helps remove dead skin cells with AHAs. If you’re more into traditional grainy exfoliators, then check out Gommage Grain, it has microspheres that gently eliminates dead skin cells while smoothing and refining skin’s texture.

Danielle’s Skincare Routine

 

Ideal Skin Type: Dry Skin

Guest Blogger: Danielle Hoffman

 

My name is Danielle, and I wanted to share my daily skincare routine with you. First I’ll give you a little background information about me. I am originally from Maryland, but before moving back, I lived in Florida for 4 years.  During my time there, I did what any Floridian does, I soaked up the Sun, which resulted in many sunburns. I cringe now just thinking about it.  Eventually I wised up about how bad Sun damage was for my skin and quit the long days at the beach and started applying SPF.

 

I initially was interested in becoming a makeup artist. I was always doing makeup for my friends and family for events or dates. I wanted to become certified and began looking up makeup artist programs. During my search to become certified I started to discover Esthetics and began to develop a strong interest in it.  One thing led to another and I became a licensed Esthetician, and have fallen in love with skincare.

As a person with dry skin, this harsh winter has done a number on it. My skin was not only dry but flakey all over, and was in much need for some nourishment. The cleanser I’m using at the moment is the Lait Hyrda Confort cleansing milk. I absolutely love this cleanser, it takes off all of my makeup, makes my skin actually feel smooth, and did I mention it smells so good. This cleansing milk contains Shea Oil which leaves my skin feel so soft and healthy. It also contains Cornflower extracts, this helps to soothe my skin.

 

The way I use it is by pumping 2-4 pumps in my hands and work the cleanser around my dry face. I apply the milk to dry skin because it is an emollient, which helps to breakdown any dirt, oil or makeup that I have on my skin. Then I simply rinse the cleansing milk off with warm water and a shammy (a type of washcloth).

After cleansing my face, I apply a moisturizer. The moisturizers I use differs from day to night.  In the morning I use BiOxygene cream. I find that it provides my skin with hydration without being too heavy. I apply BiOxygene just before I put on my makeup.  It’s hydrating enough to give my makeup long staying power, and light enough to keep my makeup from slipping off my face.  Lastly, the smell of this cream is divine, very fresh and clean.
Because my skin has been recovering from the cold, to give it an added boost of nourishment, I have been apply Creme Nutrition Confort after I cleanse my skin at night.  This cream is filled with essential oils, such as, Lavender, Rosemary and Thyme.  These oils help repair and nourish very dry skin. This is a cream that I’m using to treat my dry skin, as the weather warms up and my skin balances out I may replace this moisturizer with BiOxygene, but for the time being this is a necessary product for me.

 

If anyone has any questions about any of the products I use, or if you are interested in having a skin consultation and facial, just stop by the spa, I’m always happy to meet new people.

 

 

 

Guinot Microbiotic Cleanser

 

 

 

Guinot Microbiotic Mousse Visage

Ideal Skin Type: Combination to Oily Skin

Guest Blogger: Audrey Griffin

 

 


          The perfect cleanser and the one I recommend the most for combination to oily skin is the Guinot Microbiotic Mousse (Purifying Cleansing Foam).  Now that we are moving into the warmer months of the year, our skin tends to release more oil and sweat. This excess secretion can lead to clogged pores and other unwanted blemishes. This cleansing foam is geared to clean, purify and balance oil secretion, without leaving the skin feeling tight.

 

Microbiotic Cleanser

 

          If your skin feels “tight” after washing your face, that is not a good thing.  This feeling actually means that you have striped too much oil from the skin, which may seem beneficial for people with oily skin but it’s actually the opposite.  Every skin type needs oil (even acneic skin), the key is regulating how much oil your skin has.  If someone were to cleanse their skin with a cleanser that strips away all the oil from the face, the glands in your skin will get an urgent message that your skin is dehydrated and will begin to over-secrete more oil. Also when the skin is dehydrated it tends to hold on to any oils it can, to compensate for the lack of hydration. This results in an increase in blackheads and breakouts. Therefore it is always important to wear moisturizer no matter how oily your skin is.  Some moisturizers that work well with oily skin are, Creme Pur Equilibre, Matizone, and Hydrazone All.

 


          Again, this is why I prefer to recommend the Microbiotic Cleanser for oily skin types, as it helps to regulate, rather than eliminate oil.  Some of the key active ingredients include olive leaf extract, zinc, coconut extract, and palm tree seed extract.  All these ingredients provide the perfect remedy for clear beautiful skin!
