No matter what your skin type, keeping the skin hydrated is the single most important aspect to maintaining beautiful, radiant and youthful looking skin. Typical skin care moisturizers work by covering or sealing the skin to help prevent moisture loss. While these types of products may give the skin a temporary, nicer appearance, they do nothing to directly hydrate the skin. However, some oily products can clog pores, block the release of toxins and prevent the skin from breathing, actually helping to age the skin.
I hope this glossary of skin care product ingredients and terms will help you familiarize yourself with some of the terms used in our blog as well as terms used by our staff in our skin care treatments.
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs)– Fruit acids found in plants that remove dead and damaged surface cells through exfoliation, making skin appear smoother and feel softer. They may help the appearance of fine lines. Other types of alpha hydroxy acids include glycolic acid, lactic acid, madelic and malic acid.
Hold the anesthesia! So says the aging client of today. Indeed consumers are turning away from traditional (invasive) face-lifts as they become increasingly aware of the potential for longer term side effects associated with such procedures. Others don’t want to deal with post-operative downtime, to mention the high cost involved.
All About Skin Spa, we create an escape from the hectic pace with the aid of soothing background music. We started this music concept when we opened our spa in March 2015. Our clients can chose from a variety of nature-inspired sounds, including crackling fire, thunderstorms and ocean waves to smooth jazz, to create a stress-reducing environment. “Our customers can also supply their own music on their iPods and we put it into our speakers”.

What’s a lasting gift you can give this season? From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day we all spend a lot of time thinking about others, leaving very little time for yourself. As a skin care coach, let me make this holiday season less stressful. If you or someone you love are busy going from social functions, working, or shopping you may need a “QUICK” hydrating facial in the middle of his or her day. At All About Skin, we offer a shorter time frame treatment, (usually 25-30 minutes), and we address one concern very well. You or that someone in your life will leave seeing and feeling a difference immediately.
The smell and taste of cinnamon takes us back to our youth: gingerbread cookies, cinnamon rolls and French toast. Fast-forward to adulthood when cinnamon not only makes great treats but can encourage healthy skin. Cinnamon has been used for centuries in Asian medicine for health maintenance. The use of cinnamon dates back to 2000 BC, with the importation of the spice from China to Egypt. Historically it has been used to treat gastrointestinal upset and circulatory issues. Now its uses move beyond the pantry as an active ingredient for effective skin treatments.
