Optimal waxing

Take care of your skin before and after a waxing service to optimize results
Before waxing:
Do not apply a thick coat of moisturizer.
Do not sit in the sun or go to the tanning booth.
Do not use any abrasive body or facial scrubs.
Do    not apply any products containing Retin-A, glycolic acid or alpha hydroxy acid.
Do not consume large amounts of caffeine.
After Waxing:
Do not touch the skin unless hands are sanitized. Do not apply anything to the area that has been waxed
unless advised by the technician.
Do not expose the skin to sun or use a tanning bed for at least 24 hours.
Do not take a hot shower for at least four hours.
Do not leave the salon and work out at the gym.
Do not have a facial if facial hair has been waxed.
Do not use strong perfumes, deodorants and cosmetics for at least 12 hours.

Note. A waxing technician cannot predict how the skin will react. If you are considering having a waxing service be­cause you have a special event coming up such as a cruise or wedding, please consult with the waxing technician and have this area waxed one month before the event. This will give the technician an idea of how your skin will react to waxing. If there is no reaction, you can have the area waxed one week before the event.

Fine  wrinkles Solution

If you are seeking treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, you probably don’t want to take off too much;b time from work or an active lifestyle. That’s why non-ablative treatments for facial rejuvenation offer a solution, accord­ing to the American Society for Dermatological Surgery. This noninvasive approach is ideal for fine lines and skin imperfections, and eliminates the prolonged side effects and extended recovery period characteristic of traditional resurfacing techniques. In a study conducted by Patrick H. Bitter, Jr., MD, of Campbell, CA, and published in the September 2000 issue of Dermatological Surgery, 49 patients who received four or more full-face intense pulsed light treatments, a specific type of non-ablative procedure, saw dramatic improvement. All aspects of photo-damage, including wrinkling, skin texture irregularities, pigmentation, pore size and broken blood vessels, showed visible improvement in more than 9000 of subjects with minimal downtime and no scarring. A high degree of , patient satisfaction was reported with 88% of subjects satisfied, 61%  very satisfied and 27% extremely satisfied. Non-ablative, or non-wounding, lasers and intense-pulsed light sources work by targeting light ergy on the underlying skin while leaving the surface of the skin if harmed and intact.

Rosacea and work disruption

A recent study by the National Rosacea Society has found that the symptoms of rosacea often can disrupt the work lives of the estimated 13 million Americans who suffer from the facial disorder. In a study of 700 patients, pub­lished in Rosacea Review, 66% of those with severe symp­toms said rosacea affected their professional interactions, and 33% had canceled or postponed business meetings because of their appearance. A total of 28% reported missing work because of their condition and 28% also said it influenced their being chosen for a new job or promotion. However, according to Diane Thiboutot, MD, associate professor of dermatology at Pennsylvania State University, there is medical therapy available that can effectively control the symptoms of this chronic and often progressive disorder. 888-662-5874, rosaceas@aol.com



WANTED: MEN

Women account for approximately 8000 of United States spa-goers, and the number of spas is growing at 210o a year. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers, 5,700 U.S. spas are trying to fill 39 million square feet of mud baths, herbal-wrap rooms and meditation chambers. And they want men to fill their appointment books.
Back waxing has grown in popularity at spas and many are luring men with team sports and competitive challenges. After Green Valley Spa in St. George, Utah, added a Vic Braden tennis camp and a Golf Digest golf school recently, male enrollment shot up to 3000 from 1000. The spa industry is tripping over itself to speak man,’ “ says Patricia Ryan, sales and marketing director for PSI Inc., a Newport Beach, CA, spa products supplier.



The ayurvedic state of mind

Searching for the Fountain of ~ Haven’t found it yet’ Well maybe the problem is your state of mind. According to ayurveda and the wisdom traditions of the East, one’s attitude is want makes all the difference in the world. Ayurveda teaches that a life lived in fellowship with prakurti, or in a mind-body union, is a life that will main­tain youthfulness throughout. In other words, a 70-year-old woman could feel 17 again  sounds nice, but how is it done? In the Tibetan tradition this can be accomplished though proper nutrition, appropriate exercise, quality relaxation and sleep, seasonally determined hygiene and positive communication with the world around us. How­ever, it is important to remember that the cultivation of an ayurvedic lifestyle will not stop the aging process dead in its tracks, but will rather slow it down and keep your spirits up. Just think how nice it would be to only be as old as you feel ... so start thinking young.
With summer fast ap­proaching, it is impor­tant to review the ‘Not-so-obvious Golden rules of Sunscreen Use” before both our minds and bodies take a well-deserved leave of absence.
Apply sunscreen at least l4-inch into the hairline, and re­member the ears.
It doesn’t sound like much fun does it? But remember, neither is skin cancer pre-cancer clusters, both of which are known to occur in these areas.
If the nose turns pink in the sun, use a stronger SPF. Note we are talking about pink skin, not the traditional red associated with sunburn. Skin that is being chroni­cally pinkened” is like/v to be seeing genetic mutations known to be linked to skin cancer.
If the scalp is exposed to the sun, apply Sunscreen. Sony, this doesn just apply to the bald. Parts in the hair; along with the previously mentioned hairline, are quite sus­ceptible to sunburn, and therefore skin cancer; because of the lack of pigment cells on these areas.
Love the way your sunscreen feels on your skin. Like the motto says, "If it feels good, do it!” The fact is people are more likely to do something if it feels good; this doesn’t exclude sunscreen. If your sunscreen feels good, you are more likely to put more on—as well as more frequently.
Use a sunscreens containing vitamin C.
No sunscreen is 100% effective at blocking the sun's rays, and it is inevitable that some ultraviolet light will get through. However, by using sunscreens containing vita­min C damage to skin cells can be minimized because they are more effective in preventing aging and cancer.


Daily dose of minerals

Some makeup seems to travel at the speed of light; you put it on and the next thing you notice it’s on your white blouse. Or maybe you’re one who doesn’t care if it’s oil-free, hypoallergenic, or free from any sort of preservatives, but for some reason all brands of makeup seem to irritate your sensitive skin. Your prob­lems may be solved with mineral makeup. While mineral makeup has been gaining popularity recently, the ele­ments that it comes from have been around for years, and are actually found in the earth. These powdery for­mulas only contain a handful of components, unlike most traditional makeup, which is made up of a barrage of factors including perfume, talc, chemical dyes and chemical preservatives. Due to the fact that mineral makeup lacks synthetic irritants, it is less likely to irritate skin, and it will last all day, despite sweat. It protects skin from natural sunlight as well. In fact, mineral makeup is so effective at blocking both UVA and UVB rays it’s even sold at golf shops to men as sun powders.” So whether you’re female or male, minerals may be your best source to satisfy your makeup needs.
