We spend time and effort perfecting our skin care regime, adding eye creams, new moisturizers, and serums for treating certain skin conditions. But are you only perfecting the skin care regime for your face? Your neck and décolleté are fragile skin areas that are exposed to the same environmental factors as the face, including damaging UV rays. Not to mention, because this area is especially prone to sagging and wrinkling, left untreated it can be a sure fire give away of age, even if your facial skin looks younger from regular maintenance!
You might spend time, effort and money on the top treatments and skin care products, but is it all in vain? If you living an unhealthy lifestyle the evidence is more than likely going to show up in one of the most obvious places, your skin. Here’s a list of a few things that can take your skin from glowing to dull and unhealthy in no time.
Summer is here bringing with it long evenings, BBQ’s, sunny vacations & fun.

Get into these good skin habits now and your skin will be thanking you all summer long.
Since its start in the 1970’s mineral makeup has had a booming growth in the cosmetics industry. Once just a boutique item, now we’re bombarded with commercials, ads and products displayed in most drugstores and women’s shops encouraging the switch to this natural product. But with such popularity it makes you wonder if it’s all just hype...
With such an array of selection in makeup products ranging from inexpensive drugstore foundation to high dollar name brand powders, it’s hard to tell what the difference between them really is (besides the price). When it comes to mineral makeup, it stands in a league of its own, not just because of the ingredients used in it, but because of the ingredients that are left out.
Facial treatments that shed dead skin cells, improving the look and feel of skin – are very popular for those who want to treat the signs of premature aging (especially aging caused by sun damage). Resurfacing treatments such as peels and microdermabrasion have long been used to treat aging skin conditions like wrinkles, fine lines, hyper-pigmentation and loose saggy skin, but now they are being studied for a secondary benefit: pre-cancer lesion prevention.
You thought once middle school ended and your braces came off that those unsightly blemishes would disappear and you’d have clear skin through adulthood. Unfortunately, reality has set it and you’re still battling the breakouts despite the fact your teen years are long gone.
Breakouts occur as a result of excessive sebum (oil) production mixing with keratinized dead cells in the hair follicle. Although acne’s actual cause is unknown, and a number of causes can play a role, we do know that it involves bacterial breakdown of sebum into fatty acids that irritates surrounding tissue.
Most clients spend numerous hours and plenty of money on treating their face, their nails and their hair each month. But somehow in the time, effort, and dollars most of us spend on maintaining our look, we neglect our body skin (even though it takes up vastly more surface area than our face!). Our bodies don’t feel the love and therefore become victim to a vast number of evils including genetics, hormones, sun damage, aging, and that awful “C” word. Cellulite. Here are a few tips to address those body issues and start feeling good in your skin.
