The perfect new lightening + brightening anti-aging skin care protocol from The Natural Art Of Skin Care.
Do you want a more luminescent glow, tighter pores, and a younger looking complexion just in time for Spring?
In this article, we've provided you with a free instructional-how-to for our newest in-house anti-aging protocol. Enjoy!
1.Begin by preparing your skin with your favourite classic Eminence Cleanser, or try the NEW Eminence Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser.
2. At home, use the Arctic Berry Illuminating Peel kit as a way to exfoliate and gently peel the skin. This 3-step peel system is derived from six different natural acids including a papaya enzyme (Papain). It is also full of antioxidants to fight the signs of aging. FYI - currently one of my favourite peels out there!
In-spa, try the NEW Mangosteen Lactic Acid 10% Professional Peel which contains gentle AHA's (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) for a brighter, more smooth complexion. Lactic acid is one of the gentlest ways we can dissolve dead skin cells and improve skin's tone and texture. This peel add-on provides immediate glowing results with no irritation or down time. Made for all skin types, including sensitive. One of its strongest benefits, making it great for especially dry skin clients, is it's "Peel & Seal" feature - known to not only peel your skin, but to hydrate it during the process, unlike other peeling products out there.
Make sure you're choosing a peel that is right for you - a great peel will remove dead skin cells, work on sun damage and/or scarring, and reduce pore size. This is exactly what everyone needs for a fresher complexion in preparation for the warmer weather approaching. If you don't know which peel is right for you, come in to the Spa and ask one of our knowledgeable staff members. Because, well.... that's why we're here!
As you can see, your skin is looking brighter already with a good cleanse and peel. An at-home peel can be done at least 1-2 times per week (in-spa peel every 4-6 weeks), depending on your individual skin type and condition. Please consult one of our professionals if you have any questions or concerns.
3. Serums are an added step to boost any routine and are usually applied at night. Serums have one of the smallest molecular structures in skin care and therefore are able to penetrate deep into our skin. I like to "cocktail" a few serums together in order to power punch a facial or my own nightly routine to incorporate as much nutrients as I can.
The serum choice for today's treatment begins with 3 drops of the AMAZING Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum - a multi-vitamin for the skin. Packed full of Vitamin C for its free radical scavenger ability, well known for its ability to brighten pigmentation, and most importantly for me, food for collagen production. This serum also has Vitamin E from avocados for its antioxidant-rich, anti-inflammatory healing powers. This is only a few of the benefits this "magic in a bottle" has to offer. I can't say enough about this serum, I love it!
Mix with the Eminence Marine Flower Peptide Serum that derives its peptides from sustainable sea algae's, how Cool! With the Smart Collagen Complex™ made up of minerals, amino acids and botanicals, this serum is great for stimulating our bodies own Collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Another great anti-aging serum to add to the cocktail is the Bamboo Firming Fluid from Eminence. The perfect addition to stimulate, grow and boost Collagen. For my more hardcore skin firming clients, I substitute in the Vital A (Retinol) serum from our cosmeceutical line, DERMed. The Vital A acid is a more potent form of Vitamin A. If you're looking to add this serum to your routine, you must be careful and start a low dose, once per week. This is a true acid that can cause irritation when used incorrectly. Please consult a professional for proper use.
4. To finish this pore minimizing, youthful, thirst quenching treatment, I recommend the Eminence Coconut Age Corrective Night Cream or the Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream. When carrying out your day time regime, we highly recommend a moisturizer with Sun protection. Some of our favourites around the spa are the Tinted Moisturizer, Tropical Vanilla SPF Cream (Face or body), or the Eminence Sun Defense (powdered) Mineral Sticks.
We also highly recommend incorporating an eye cream into your daily regime as this is a great way to prevent volume loss and thinning of the skin around the eyes, puffiness, pigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. In light of this article, we recommend the Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream, as this is a great all-around eye cream to improve some of the concerns mentioned above.
For any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at the spa.
