March 2016 – Skin Care for Winter to Spring

Exfoliate Winter’s Buildup of Dry, Flaky Skin
A microdermabrasion or hydrafacial treatment is perfect for removing the thick layer of dead skin cells that accumulate in winter. For even better results, add Dr. Josie Recommends® Buff Me Up or Glytone’s KP Kit.

Moisturize Your Skin Every Day
First, clean the skin with purified water or a mild toner like Dr. Josie Recommends “C” Me Glow pads. Then, to maximize the skin’s capacity for holding moisture, apply Dr. Josie Recommends Hydra Restore, a potent source of pure hyaluronic acid. Finally, spring weather calls for a lighter moisturizer like Dr. Josie Recommends Soft Silk, which is silky smooth and appropriate for all skin types.

Don’t Forget Your Hands
Younger looking hands can be the perfect complement to a spring-fresh face. To eliminate sunspots and stimulate collagen and elastin formation, combine a BBL hand treatment with one of our specially formulated hand peels. Then treat those dry, brittle nails and overgrown cuticles to a manicure!

The Most Important Tip for Spring
UV light exists regardless of whether or not the sun is shining, so wear UV protection every day and on every part of the body that can be seen outdoors. It may be easy to forget, but it’s a must in the spring to apply UV protection every 2 hours, and more often for your hands. Dr. Josie Recommends Clean Screen is the cleanest UV protection you can buy. It’s made with titanium dioxide, a naturally occurring chemical that creates a physical barrier rated at SPF 35. Apply it along with Dr. Josie Recommends C+ serum for even better UV protection and brighter skin.

Hot Showers are a No-No
Hot showers strip the skin and nails of natural oils, making them even drier and more fragile. By contrast, shorter showers with lukewarm water are less damaging. As you become more active, if you shower more than once per day, don’t use soap! Instead, use soap-free moisturizing cleansers, such as Dr. Josie Recommends Wash Me Gently or Avene’s Ultra Gentle Cleanser. Unless you’re visibly dirty, just rinse off and use cleansers only on the underarm and groin areas.

Start Your Hair Removal and Weight Loss Treatments Now
Spring is the BEST time to remove unwanted hair, and there’s just enough time before summer begins. With our superior technology, both women and men can be free of the hassle of regular shaving. Since hair reduction often requires at least 6 treatments, spaced every 6 weeks, now is the time to get started.

Are you still trying to lose that winter holiday weight? While we can help you get unwanted fat off quickly, we still need at least 6 weeks to maximize on your results. Starting now will ensure you’re swimsuit ready in time for poolside fun!

Hydration, Hydration, Hydration
Drink at least 8 glasses of water or two 20-ounce servings of MeStrength every day to restore and maintain an optimal level of moisture in your skin.

If you have any questions, please come and see us. A VISIA skin complexion analysis can be highly informative, especially if it’s not your first. In the meantime, Happy Spring!
