Exfoliating with Acids- What are you waiting for?

If you are looking for a dramatic lift to your appearance, a chemical peel could be just what you need!
Both Glycolic and Lactic Acid loosen " the glue like substance " on the outer most layers of our skin by pulling apart the negatively and positively charged molecules. As the acids break up the dead skin in the outer most layers of our skin, younger, plumper and fresher skin is revealed. In low concentrations, these acids plump up fine lines and wrinkles and because they are water loving, they help keep the skin hydrated. Some of the benefits are listed below. I will suggest the right exfoliation and home care for you based on your skin type and goals!
Acne Management
Removal of the appearance of sun damage
Reduction and/or removal of blotchy patches
Low downtime
Lightening of the skin

Working from the inside out by improving your complexion with balancing foods

Eating foods that comes from "clean" sources helps reduce our intake of toxins-
Every day the skin is bombarded with oxidative stress from processed foods, environmental toxins and UV rays along with other environmental aggressors. The end result is premature aging and hyperpigmentation.
Antioxidant rich foods that help restore the skin include: Red and black currants, raspberries, blueberries, pomegranate and sesame seeds. Grapes and red wine contain resveratrol - a super antioxidant with strong anti aging properties. Veggies like spinach and kale contain lutein, ( an antioxidant) that helps to hydrate the skin. Yellow and Orange root veggies including carrots, sweet potatoes pumpkins and squash are rich in beta-carotene. Honey is very rich in antioxidants!
To improve any complexion we need to consume food that helps balance our bodies from the inside out.

Raw Chocolate in a facial? Yes with fantastic results!

Studies have shown that chocolate in its purest form does indeed have health benefits. Its antioxidants help protect the skin from free radicals. Chocolate also contains stimulants such as caffeine and theobromide that enhance the circulatory system; therefore promoting skin firming and restoring its glow. It also increases the levels of serotonin and phenylethylamine, which act as natural mood elevators. My clients have been requesting and coming back for the Chocolate Extravaganza facial and have been getting very impressive results. This facial is stimulating for a dull and lifeless skin and firming. There is an exfoliation to remove dead skin as it reduces wrinkles and pore size,tones capillary action reducing surface veins- A firming massage with anti oxidant rich chocolate serum and a finishing mask from raw cacao!
