Who is glad winter is finally coming to end? We sure are!! Winter has been way to long this year and we are more than ready for the long, warm days of summer. As you pull out your shorts and tanks, you may be noticing some dry patches or dull skin. This happens during the winter when your skin is victim to the harsh winds and cold temperatures that remove much needed moisture. Just like the earth needs to refresh in the spring, so does our skin. A little extra TLC goes a long way to acquiring beautiful, luscious skin!
Dead cells are the main culprit behind lackluster skin on your face and body. Over time, the buildup of dead cells causes your skin to lose its soft, glowing appearance. This is when you begin to notice more blemishes, rough, dry patches and fine lines around your eyes and mouth. I think we can agree that this is not the look we want for summer! Now for most of us, when we see problems on our face, we tend to try to cover up our imperfections. Our arsenal of concealers, foundations and other beauty products give us layers of coverage. What if I told you that instead of adding layers, we should be doing the exact opposite!
Dermaplaning is a skin care treatment that actually removes dead cells from the outer layer of your skin. The procedure uses a simple technique of shaving off layers of skin by using a surgical scalpel and a very gentle touch. If done by a professional, it is a safe and an excellent way to rejuvenate your skin. Dermaplaning works because it removes not only dead skin cells, but also the fine hairs (you have probably heard it called “peach fuzz”) that grow on the face, especially on the cheeks and chin. These tiny hairs capture oil, dirt and those pesky dead cells which is why many women get more blemishes on their cheeks and chin than anywhere else. When all that accumulation of stuff gets removed from the outer layer of the skin, new skin is allowed to grow in its place and your appearance is rejuvenated.
Laser Hair Removal
I think I can honestly say that there is nothing more aggravating than shaving. It is so time consuming and well, just boring. Thank goodness there is a solution to smooth legs that does not include shaving or waxing. The new technique on the block is laser hair removal. LightSheer is a high-speed laser hair removal system that uses photodynamic light energy to heat hair follicles causing the hair to no longer grow. LightSheer can be used on hair all over the body, not just the legs. In fact, LightSheer can be used on the legs, arms, back, chest, bikini area and the face. The results of LightSheer are permanent, but several sessions must be completed to achieve optimal results. The procedure is almost completely painless and does not damage the skin.
