Back To School: Eminence Organic Skin Care Tips For Students & Moms

For students, we’ve put together a routine that you can pick and choose from to kick off your school year right.Whether you’re a student or parent, back to school season is a hectic time of fresh starts and new timetables. While you reorganize your fall schedule, why not refresh your Eminence Organics skin care routine as well? For students, we’ve put together a routine that you can pick and choose from to kick off your school year right. For moms, we have a couple of back to school skin care tips for busy parents. Make this season a successful start to the school year with re-inspired skin care for the whole family. 


After a long summer break, you want to return to school looking your best and making sure your complexion absolutely glows. That means protecting the youthful look of your skin, balancing oily areas and stopping school-stress breakouts! Here are our suggestions for Eminence Organics products to introduce to your skin care routine:

September 4th, 2017


Summer is all too short it seems for those of us here in Canada. If you are like me I adore beginning the day with a coffee on the deck, or spending one of those precious few sun filled afternoons on one of our gorgeous Ontario lakes. An active outdoor lifestyle is good for the heart, good for the soul, but not so great for our skin. Even with my best sun health safety measures, I tend to pick up a little more color than intended. Wearing a hat and sunscreen are critical for protecting the integrity of our skins structure and reducing damage.

So what do we do now, at the end of summer, when we notice a few sun spots appearing or a few more red broken capillaries? We have a plan for that!

Photofacials are fabulous for erasing the damage we picked up along the way. Photofacials, also called IPL treatments, are done with a laser. We target the excess red and the excess brown to encourage the skin to repair the sun damage. The goal of the treatment is an even smooth skin tone and appearance, as though you are wearing a makeup foundation, even when you are not! This treatment is most commonly done on Face, neck, chest and hands. Maximum benefit is achieved in a series of treatments spread four weeks apart, and combined with a customized home care routine. The number of treatments required varies depending on the amount or depth of damage. For some, they will be satisfied after a single treatment. For others with extensive damage they could need several. We could establish a more specific treatment plan in a complimentary consultation.

The treatment itself isn't particularly painful, although I doubt it is anyone's favorite medi-spa treatment. Like hair removal it is described as similar to a snapping rubber band. It is, however, quick. It takes longer to cleanse the skin and apply the gel than the actual active portion of the treatment. All in all you will be in and out in less than thirty minutes and well on your way to renewed, rejuvenated, firmer skin. There is little down time, although you will be red and possibly swollen for a day or two. Sun damage spots will turn darker for about a week or two and can be covered by makeup until they shed leaving  either a much faded version, or no spot at all, just beautiful healthy normal skin!

The results are remarkable! It is well worth investigating how these treatments can be a part of your skin care regimen. I know they are an important part of mine!

This treatment is available exclusively at our Pickering Location. Call Jenna today at 905-831-9700 to set up your free consultation. 

We look forward to hearing from you.

In treatment with Catherine roe

It’s the end of summer and as that tan fades my clients come in with a few classic end of summer skin conditions.

Itchy back? Ashy, dull skin on arms and legs? Not to worry, we’ve got you covered with Body Treatments at The Facial Place.  

It's time to improve the appearance of dull, dry skin on your body after a summer of sun exposure or before a beach vacation. If you'd like your skin to be a delight to the touch, the Eminence Sugar Scrubs in Coconut or Pear & Green Apple buff away dead skin cells on the surface layer using raw sugar cane.

You can add on a back scrub to any facial treatment, or have the whole body treated with naturally occurring Alpha Hydroxy Acid to smooth the skin’s surface, aid exfoliation and give you that baby soft feeling again.  

During our Body Treatments our signature sugar cane mixture is massaged over legs, stomach, chest, arms and back. It is then dissolved through the use of warm water and effleurage movements and removed with hot towels, yes, it feels just as amazing as it sounds! You’re then treated to luxurious moisturizer to deeply hydrate using Eminence Coconut Firming Body Lotion or Pear and Green Apple Massage Soufflé.

This treatment is a pleasure to the senses and you're left with glowing, soft-to-the-touch skin. Book your own Body Treatment today at either of our two Facial Place locations today!

Pretty in Peach


  It's Peach Season Girls!  

  So while you’re sipping on your Bellini’s and enjoying that fresh piece of pie, be sure to check out       these on-trend makeup ideas available in the signature Facial Place Cosmetics Collection to add a     peachy glow to your complexion.

   Peachy Cheeks: contour with your favourite Facial Place Bronzer just along the underside of your     cheekbone, highlight along the top and blend. Next, add your peach tones with The Facial Place blush   pot, (we recommend The Facial Place ‘The Big O’  for the fairer skins, moving into richer apricots for   darker toned skins), concentrating the bulk of your colour  to the apples of your cheeks for that fresh I     just came in from outside look

  Peach Up Your Pucker: for fair skin tones, softer peaches with a pinker undertone are lovely, moving into the orangier tones for olive complexions and bolder richer orange tones for darker skin tones. Our picks? Hot Flash and Watermelon Gloss Ware Lip Gloss and Lola and Lip Love Lip Stick. To apply, make sure your lips are well moisturized with lip balm and  blot off any excess. Dab colour onto your lips and blend with a brush or your finger for a subtle stain. Wear as is or juice it up with shimmery coral tinted gloss.

From left to right: The Facial Pace GlossWear Lip Gloss in ‘Hot Flash’ and ‘Watermelon’ The Facial Place Lipstick in ‘ Lola’ and ‘Lip Love.’ The Facial Place Powder Blush in ‘The Big "O"’ 

Be sure to fill in your brows and finish with a lick of mascara on your lashes. Or, if you like a little colour on your lids highlight under your brow and the inside corner of your eye and sweep your cheek colour over your lids, whatever feels right for you... it’s all peachy keen!

5 Reasons you need a massage

Summer is the perfect time to hit the reset button and get a massage.

Many of us have the chance to take some time off, take some time for ourselves, and focus on our own well-being. And there’s one small thing that you can do for yourself that can have a big impact on your health: Registered Massage Therapy.

Registered Massage Therapy is the practice of applying very specific kinds of targeted pressure to muscles, tendons and ligaments. There are many different kinds of massage techniques. Relaxation massage targets specific areas with a focus on reducing stress, release tension, increase circulation throughout the body, and create a state of deep relaxation. Swedish massage utilizes five different strokes targeting the soft tissue of the back to release tension in key muscle groups to treat muscle related injuries, increase blood flow throughout the body and treat chronic pain involving strained muscles, tendons or ligaments. Prenatal massage uses a system of support cushions and targeted techniques to increase the oxygen supply to the baby, reduce swelling in the hands and feet, prevent varicose veins, and relieve stress on weight bearing muscles and joints. And a Hot Stone massage utilizes a combination of deep penetrating Basalt Stones and manual massage therapy techniques proven to treat pain and discomfort associated with muscle tension in the back.

Whichever kind of massage therapy you prefer, here are 5 reasons that YOU need a massage:

  1. Stress Management. Registered Massage Therapy has numerous benefits proven to increase your well being and promote a state of overall good health. Most people carry stress in the body in the form of tension and knots. Releasing tense muscles also releases toxins trapped in the muscle tissue, and induces a state of deep relaxation that decreases your blood pressure and increases circulation and blood flow throughout the body, which in turn boosts your mood and relieves stress.
  2. Treat Injury and Chronic Pain. Registered Massage Therapists undergo an intensive period of training that involves the study of the human anatomy and strain related injuries related to muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons. It’s a good course of treatment for you if you have any kind of repetitive strain or labour related injury like lower back pain, foot, knee, or leg pain, neck or shoulder pain. Studies also show that Registered Massage Therapy can relieve tension headaches and treat chronic pain associated with Fibromyalgia.
  3. Improves Sleep. Registered Massage Therapy creates a sense of deep relaxation and pleasure that decreases your blood pressure and increases circulation. It’s been shown to improve the quality of sleep and help those suffering from insomnia and other sleep related ailments.
  4. Boosts the Immune System. Registered Massage Therapy releases toxins and increases blood flow throughout the body. It’s also been shown to increase the body’s production of white blood cells, which reinforce the immune system and are directly related to your overall good health.
  5. It’s Covered! That’s right, Registered Massage Therapy is covered by most employee health benefits programs which means you can experience all of the benefits without any cost to you.


Who doesn’t want to reduce stress, relieve pain, improve sleep and boost the immune system?

Skin Clinic with Carolyn Green

Hi there! My name is Carolyn and many of you may already know me as the resident Medical Esthetician and Laser Specialist at The Facial Place in Pickering. Today, I want to talk about something that so many of my clients struggle with on a daily basis...

  "My skin is changing."

  I hear it all the time in my treatment room. "I never used to have this problem, but   now my skin is..." Breaking out? Marked or scarred? Developing lines?     Suddenly sensitive or red? We can all identify with the frustration of a new skin     issue that starts to present itself over time. 


(Photo courtesy of Miracle 10 Skincare)

Our skin and our bodies are always changing and for many of us that can feel like a very complex problem. For instance, we’re rarely dealing with one skin related issue at a time. Often there are multiple and overlapping things we want to address like sun damage + breakouts or laxity + redness. One product works on problem A, but what about problem B? Can treatment for one make the other worse? It really can get confusing but don’t worry, I’m here to help.

When facing skin related issues that are changing over time you might be saying to yourself, Should I do Peels? Laser Photofacials? Collagen Facials? Microdermabrasion? Retinol? Gluten and Dairy cleanse? Drink more water? It really depends.

Your skin is telling you a story about your overall health status. Aging is a natural process but it can be complicated by hormonal imbalance, conditions like Rosacea or Melasma that can lead to discolouration. Medications can affect the health of our skin as well. Lifestyle and diet play a massive role in our overall healthy glow (or lack thereof). But when I meet with you, we look at all of these factors and come up with a treatment plan based on your complexion’s needs and your skincare goals.

Thankfully we have many options available at The Facial Place. I combine several different types of in-clinic treatments and assess your home care. If you are doing several steps at home every day and not seeing a healthy, dewy glow or steady improvements in your skin it may be time to reevaluate the routine. It too needs to change from time to time.

I look forward to working with you on how we can bring about positive change and steady improvement, not only to your skin but to your overall "glow". Then maybe some of those changes you mention at your next visit will be good ones!

 See you next time!

The LOOK! Lash Extensions at The Facial Place

Say goodbye to mascara and save some serious time in the morning with Lash Extensions by Shara Henley at The Facial Place in Whitby.

That’s right. No more mascara required! This game-changing procedure accentuates your natural lashes with 100% damage free synthetic strands that do not compromise your existing lashes, giving you low-maintenance, high-impact lashes that last 4-6 weeks.

How Lash Extensions Work:

Our lash technician Shara Henley selects the right shape, length and colour extension for you avoiding anything too long or heavy that your natural lash can’t support. From there, she isolates each individual lash and attaches the synthetic strand with glue. Lash extensions are extremely lightweight and they grow out and fall off on their own with your lash's natural growth cycle. It’s important that each extension is attached to an individual lash and not in bulk because this can damage your natural lash and lead to clumpy looking lashes that won’t grow out properly.

You can choose from the Classic Set or the Ellipse Set which is softer, darker and more dramatic. We recommend scheduling a fill around 4-6 weeks after the initial application depending on your hair type and aftercare.

Avoid any kind of moisture to the lashes for 24hrs after application. Refrain for mascara, oils, or creams of any kind. Shampoo them every couple of days with a mild, no-tears shampoo to keep them clean and brush them every day with a lash wand (provided by us!).

The LOOK! Microblading at The Facial Place

No doubt you’ve heard the buzz about Microblading. Literally everyone is talking about it, and for good reason! This technique is one of the biggest trends this summer and you can get it at The Facial Place in Whitby.

How Microblading Works:

Microblading, also known as brow embroidery, is a semi-permanent brow tinting and shaping technique that can last up to 3 years depending on your skin type.

Image courtesy of Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/473511348306390660/

Our brow specialist Shara Henley applies a topical anesthetic to the brow then deposits an organic cream colour pigment into the surface layer of the skin using a fine blade that is selected to match your skin and brow type. The blade is used to create fine hair-line strokes that match the growth patterns of your existing brows, creating a fuller and more defined eyebrow that builds on to the hair you have, weather you have lots of hair or no hair at all. The results are beautiful, natural looking, flawless and fuller looking eyebrows.      

Microblading is excellent for anyone who suffers from hair loss or alopecia, whose hair may be thinning, or anyone looking to fill out their natural brow. Clients come in for their initial visit and return 4-6 weeks later for a touch up. We recommend that clients avoid sun exposure, salt water and soaking in a bath, pool, or tub for 2-4 weeks afterwards. Applying grape seed oil while you shower will help to repel water away from the brow. 

This procedure lasts 1-3 years depending on your skin type. If you have oily skin the results may fade faster than if you have normal to dry skin. An annual touch up is recommended to increase the longevity of your results. Combine this procedure with Lash Extensions and get the ultimate flawless look for summer and fall!                                                                                     (Image courtesy of Pinterest.com)

The Miracle 10 Peel Treatment 


The Facial Place has just added a new facial treatment to our roster! We are excited to announce that The Miracle 10 Peel Treatment from Miracle 10 Skincare is now available at both locations in Whitby and Pickering.

The Miracle Peel is designed to reduce the appearance of dehydration, redness, fine lines and wrinkles. It’s a clinically proven treatment for acne prone skin, aging skin, hyper pigmentation and age spots. You will notice dramatic results after your initial visit and the best part is NO DOWN TIME!

Everyone’s Skin has a hidden beauty waiting to be revealed



(photo courtesy of Miracle 10 Skincare)

The Miracle 10 Peel Treatment involves the application of a signature solution that works to improve and smooth the texture, tone and vitality of the skin’s surface through deep exfoliation of it’s outer layer. Facial peels remove the damaged and dead cells on the skin’s surface layer to reveal the healthy, radiant cells beneath, releasing trapped oil and debris.

What’s involved?

Everything we do at the Facial Place is created especially for you, and the Miracle 10 Peel Treatment is no exception. All of our facials begin with a consultation with your skin therapist when you can discuss your skin type, issues or trouble areas, sensitivities, and desired results. Once we fully understand you and your skincare needs we can design a Miracle Peel that’s perfect for you.

The Miracle 10 Peel Treatment Includes:

The Miracle Peel is a non-invasive treatment and that means that there is that there is no down time! You’ll walk out looking absolutely radiant and ready to go. However, after your initial visit it’s important to avoid sun exposure and any skin care products that contain acids for 48 hours.

If you are looking to treat an acute skincare issue, we recommend having this treatment every 2 weeks for the first month. After that, you can maximize your results by following up with the Miracle10 Skincare take-home care and come back for regular maintenance peels to keep your complexion glowing.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email us. We love to hear from you and we’re always happy to help.

Microdermabrasion Skin Resurfacing

At The Facial Place, we use a system which removes the topmost layer of the skin by gently exfoliating it with natural diamond chips bonded to the tip of the wand, while vacuuming the exfoliated skin cells away in a controlled manner.

NEW: Age Corrective Ultra - Visible Results In 2 Minutes

Every day you struggle against the forces of nature. Two of the most powerful: time and gravity. As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and its texture slackens. Gravity worsens the overall look- dragging down your skin and creating deep lines, eye bags and a sagging appearance. 

Can you beat the inevitable march of time and pull of gravity? Now you can, instantly - with our brand new Age Corrective Ultra Collection. These premium additions to our popular Age Corrective Collection are formulated to tighten skin so it appears lifted and firm, with immediate results. Featuring hibiscus, botanical peptides, and a unique ice wine active, these products deliver results in minutes. Dramatically improve the appearance of puffy, tired eyes, sagging skin and even the deepest expression lines. 

Our Advanced Instant Lift fX eye treatment ensures you look red carpet-ready two minutes. De-puff tired eyes, smooth wrinkles and minimize the appearance of dark undereye circles. The cooling stainless steel rollerball applicator massages in hibiscus and ice wine actives, appearing to instantly lift and tighten the skin. 

With an innovative curved tip applicator, this line filler treatment uses botanical peptides to smooth, tighten and firm the skin and diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Expect both immediate and long-lasting youthful-looking results.

Rejuvenate and tighten the delicate neck and décolletage area with the Advanced Instant Lift fX formula. The blend of hibiscus and botanical hyaluronic acid keeps skin looking firm and rich in moisture. All-natural active ingredients give sagging skin a boost from paprika and edelweiss to ensure the neck looks smooth and instantly lifted.

Sun Care

NEW: The Repair & Protect Collection

With summer on the way, it’s the perfect time to switch off Netflix, roll off your couch and explore the Great Outdoors. However, along with the benefits of fresh air and activity come the sobering negatives of UV exposure, pollution and harsh elements. Daily aggressors in your environment - including sun, wind, water and snow - exacerbate skin conditions, taking their toll on your complexion and drying out your skin.

To defend yourself against the harshness of the elements, we introduce the Repair and Protect Collection. Our latest line-up of products is specifically formulated to combat environmental stressors including UV rays and the drying effects of pollution, wind, and rain. This collection is your secret weapon against the elements and anything else the seasons throw your way.


Repair and Protect

This revolutionary super balm uses the power of Natural Repair Complex to fight dry skin caused by elemental exposure. A few dabs of this ultra-rich cream will repair, soothe and reduce redness for dry skin.

A lightweight moisturizer for both face and body, this hydrator can be used under the Repair Balm to lock in moisture, repair dry skin and reduce redness caused by dryness. Camphor and menthol also generate a cooling sensation, perfect for refreshing the face and body after exposure to the elements. 

Repair and protect when you’re on the go or at the beach.REPAIR & PROTECT STARTER SET
Repair and protect when you’re on the go or at the beach. Including the Stone Crop Gel Wash, Rosehip & Lemongrass Soothing Hydrator, Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm and Tropical Vanilla Day Cream SPF 32, this collection of products is a perfect introduction and ideal for travel. 

Look out for the Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15 which will be joining the collection soon. The rosehip oil in this organic treatment soothes weather-ravaged dry lips, rejuvenating lavender helps restore softness, while zinc oxide provides natural SPF 15 protection against the sun’s harmful rays. This balm helps tone, repair and refresh dry lips.

5 Signs That Sugar Is Aging Your Face

JANUARY 14, 2016|
Written By: Karen Young Chester|

Here’s some news that will make you put down that donut and walk away: sugar ages you. Do you have a sugary donut in your hand? Here’s some news that will make you put down that donut and walk away: sugar ages you. Although there are lots of factors that ruin your skin, sugar is probably one of the worst offenders for outright aging your face and body. Not only should you be avoiding sugar for dietary reasons (the new US health guidelines recommend you cut way back), you now have the added incentive of protecting your looks from the aging ravages of sugar. You heard it here first: Sugar is the new Big Bad. 

Sugar bonds with proteins in your body in a process called glycation. These sugar-bonded proteins produce free radicals which destroy your collagen and elastin, the building blocks that keep your skin strong and supple. They also harden collagen and elastin, and prevent the body from making more. All these effects mean your skin loses its elasticity, lines and wrinkles start to set in, and signs of aging become more visible. 

The effects of sugar on your skin are so unique, there are tell-tale signs on your face that sugar is the culprit aging you:

1. The surface of your skin looks hard and shiny.
2. Deep, crosshatch lines appear along your upper lip.
3. Discoloration and hyperpigmentation mark the skin.
4. Deep crevices appear, especially around the laugh line area.
5. Skin around the jowl area is sagging.

The good news is that you're never too late to prevent the signs of aging. Now you know about the damage that sugar can do to your skin, here’s how you can combat the destruction and look your best:
1. Cut back on your sugar intake, especially food containing high fructose corn syrup. 
2. Supplement your diet with vitamins B1 and B6 (Prevention) which inhibit the damage caused by sugar-bonded proteins.
3. Eat food and use products with antioxidants like vitamin C which reduce free radical damage to the skin and body.

Our brand new Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil is infused with oil-based vitamin C that fights the visible signs of aging and smooths wrinkles. Its ingredients also work hard in a preventative way and help reduce further symptoms of aging skin.  With regular use, your complexion will look hydrated, firmer and plumped. Target the sugar-fueled signs of aging with this unique facial oil and reveal your most beautiful, youthful-looking skin.

The Ultimate Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide

Are you stumped for stocking stuffer ideas? We’ve compiled the ultimate gift guide for organic skin care - 4 sweet choices that are favorites with the press and will dazzle anyone who finds them in their stocking:

This press darling was recently featured in Conde Nast Traveler by clothing and swimwear designer Mara Hoffmanwho declared that she was “in love with” our Neroli Age Corrective Eye Serum. For everyone who is crushing on this popular eye serum, finding it in your stocking is the ultimate holiday joy. 

These sleek little containers slip easily into any stocking and include theCitrus Enzyme Lip Exfoliator, Lip Comfort and Plumping Masque andCitrus Lip Balm (available separately for professional use only). Gift our Lip Kit Trio to anyone who needs their lips prepped for holiday romance because Vurb magazine recommends it for the “perkiest and softest lips ever.” 

Delight friends and family with this versatile toner that refreshes skin, especially during dry winter weather. Popular with celebrities, our Stone Crop Hydrating Mist attracts stars like Alanis Morissette, as well as Jena Malone who describes it as her “lifesaver” to Vogue magazine. 

Come bearing gifts of gold with shimmering bottles of our Facial Recovery Oil. Recently recommended by DaySpa andDermascope magazines, this toning and hydrating oil is a luxury stocking stuffer for the person who deserves the best. Spoil your friends and family with this little surprise in their stockings and you’ll be the hero of the holiday season.




It’s important to identify your personal skin type before choosing your products. Use the following descriptions to ensure a perfect match and to properly care for your skin.

Find the right products for your skin.


Your skin feels dry and tight, and sometimes you can see flakes on your cheeks, chin and forehead. Fine lines may be present around your eye and lip contour areas. It is important to use moisture-rich products such as a daytime moisturizer, and a moisturizing treatment at night to repair your skin while you sleep. Weekly moisturizing masques will keep your skin soft and supple and will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Your skin has an even tone, and is not overly dry or oily. From time to time you may experience oiliness on your chin, nose and forehead or dryness on your cheeks, lips and around your eye contour area. To keep the condition of your skin even and toned, a good skin care routine including cleansing and moisturizing is a must.


Your skin is shiny, has visible pores and is prone to spots and blemishes. Makeup seems to slide off your skin as soon as it is applied. Oily skin has the benefit of not showing lines easily, but needs to be maintained to help prevent breakouts and to control shine.


Your skin has fine pores, can be easily irritated and is prone to redness. Sensitive skin is often genetic and can also react to poor diet, changes in weather, hormonal imbalance and certain cosmetic products. Sensitive skin must be treated with the correct skin care products that are gentle and soothing to heal your skin and relieve your symptoms.





 Our product feature of the week is the Gehwol Med Salve for cracked skin.

Our Best Seller for the harsh winter months, for persistent foot and nail problems. 

Active Ingredients: Lanolin, Vaseline, medicated soap, panthenol, Bisabolol, zinc oxide, eucalyptus oil, lavender oil, oil of rosemary, menthol, camphor

The salve is based on a well-tried mixture of special soaps and selected skin friendly oils. It is used best for severe hard skin, dry or rough skin, or very cracked skin.

AFA Gel Peel  (20 Min)                   $85.00

AFA Clay Peel (30 min)                  $110.00
AFA with Microdermabrasion      $140.00

  1. What is an AFA Peel?
    AFA Peeling utilize amino acids ( Acid Filaggrin) to promote healthier + brighter skin. Using these proteins, which are also antioxidants, AFAs generate unique benefits offering the following benefits:

Greater moisture retention: Acidic amino acids are the primary moisture retention factor of the skin. In damaged skins, these amino acids are decreased.
Anti-aging: AFA gels are able to penetrate to the stratum granulosum. These antioxidants penetrate deeply providing the skin with three times more anti-aging results than AHAs.
No sun sensitivity: AFA Peels are excellent for sundamage and pigmentation because it does not make the skin photosensitive. This is very important as other peels can actually worsen skin damage as it makes the skin vulnerable to UV rays. Acidic amino acids produce a bi-product of Urocanic Acid which is a recognized UV filter.
Lessening Hyper-Pigmentation: AFAs have been observed to be more effective than hydroquinone for pigmentation, + are especially good for African, Asian or Indian skin types.
Deep exfoliation: The skin can take a much higher concentration of AFAs than glycolic acid + AHAs. This greatly aids clog ged pores + acne as it decongests the skin more effectively.
Less irritation: There has been proven to be less irritation with AFA peeling. This benefits sensitive skin types as it is gentler than AHA Peeling. Also, the fact it does not make skin photosensitive is also crucial to sensitive skin.

What is the AFA Clay Peel?
The AFA Clay Peel is a two step process of AFA Clay Peeling with the regular AFA Peel. The AFA Clay Peel adds an even deeper peeling component as a pre AFA Peel treatment. The AFA Clay Peel helps close + tighten pores + enhance the AFA Peel’s potency.

  1. AFAs and Microdermabrasion
    AFA Peels can be used in conjunction with Microdermabrasion for an powerful treatment under the direction + guidance of a skincare professional. This pairing is an intensive anti-aging treatment for the skin which helps increase collagen production, promote elasticity + smooth fine lines.

  2. How many treatments will I need?
    You will see immediate results after your first treatment. For those treating an acute skin ailment (ie. scarring, acne), the number of treatments will be dependant on the severity of the ailment. AFA Peeling should have a minimum of two weeks between treatments + any skincare peeling should not be used the night before a treatment. An initial series of peels is highly recommended varying with skin type + goals. To maintain results, follow up treatments should be done every 4-6 weeks. Pairing this with a facial for a monthly pore-cleansing is ideal.

  3. What should I expect?
    The AFA Peel is extremely effective, + the overall appearance of the skin will be improved. The first few days after the treatment skin needs a rich moisturizer to protect + nourish the skin. The skin has been deeply exfoliated, so skincare will absorb deeper. If a rich moisturizer is not used, the skin may flake + feel sensitive. For those who are concerned about sensitivity or are inquiring about a series, an AFA Preparatory Facial is beneficial as the esthetician can give you individualized insight to your skin + prescribe a specific regime/ process.

How To Care For your Skin.

Your individual skin type needs individual care. Proper daily and weekly care, combined with a healthy lifestyle will make your skin glow with youth and vitality.
Follow these simple steps to beautiful skin.

DAILY REGIME Twice per day: morning and night

Step 1 – Cleanse:
Select a cleanser suited to your skin type. Place a small amount of cleanser into your hands and emulsify with lukewarm water. Apply to the face in a circular motion, covering the entire face for 30 seconds. Remove from the skin while gently scrubbing with a damp face cloth or sponge and rinse thoroughly, alternating with warm and cold water. This action will remove dirt, pollution and impurities from the skin’s surface and prepare it for the next step.

Step 2 – Tone:
Apply one to two sprays of toner, suited to your skin type, over the entire face and leave on. Toners are important to balance the natural pH of your skin and to infuse your skin with natural vitamins and minerals. Your skin will feel rejuvenated with each spray and you can enjoy the aromatherapy benefits of the real fruits and herbs.

Step 3 – Treat:
Treat specific skin care concerns, such as lack of firmness, acne or rosacea, with an active serum, booster-serum, concentrate or oil. Although optional, once you experience the clarifying, hydrating and age-defying benefits of this step you will want to continue to include this essential step in your regime. Apply a serum, boosterserum,concentrate or oil after toner in a thin layer and leave on.

Step 4 – Moisturize:
Hydrate and soften the skin with a moisturizer suited to your skintype. Even oily skins need a light moisturizer to keep skin soft and supple. Apply a layer of moisturizer over the entire face and neck area and leave on. For a lighter application, emulsify a small amount of moisturizer in your hand with a few drops of water. For extra hydration, apply a thicker layer in dry areas.

Eye Care – Using a gentle tapping motion, apply a small amount of eye cream to the contour area around the eyes, taking care not to tug the delicate skin around the eye area.

Step 5 – Protect Sun Care – Apply Sun Defense Minerals as per instructions to finish and protect the skin.

How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

The New Year is an amazing time.  Most people look at it as a new beginning, a clean slate a perfect start date to change the things in their life that they are unhappy with. I’m sure that on New Year’s Day in that moment you have every intention in following through with your decisions for change but let’s face it sometimes life just gets in the way

So whether you’ve decided to lose weight or save money or to be more productive at work, how do you ensure that you are able to achieve the goals that you have set for yourself?

Pick only one resolution this way you can focus all your energy on one specific thing rather than spreading yourself to thin and giving up entirely.Write your resolution down making a list of things you can do to achieve this goal and any obstacles that may stand in your way. Rome was not built in a day! Making small changes to your daily routine instead of a complete overhaul only will increase the likelihood of long term success. Tell your family and friends about your goal and strengthen your support system or join an online community with similar goals as yourself. Vent to them when you’re struggling and celebrate with them when you’re succeeding. Change takes time don’t get discouraged if things are not going exactly according to plan it is not a race or a competition  Just believe in yourself and do the best you can to achieve the goal you are striving for.

The Things you need to look fabulous on New Year’s Eve

The Smokey eye: The smoldering Smokey eye looks best when done in brown neutral and copper tones. However for a party or a night on the town silver grey and black tones will look fierce. 

Red Lipstick: A red lip is a classic look that never goes out of style. For staying power be sure to first line lips then fill in with pencil. Then apply lipstick after that apply a tissue over lips and dap on powder with a powder brush. Apply second coat of lipstick and your set.

Sequins: There are so many options this time of year. A sequined little black dress or a beautiful patterned sequin skirt perhaps the possibilities are endless!

Statement jewelry: Think chunky collar necklaces or detailed chandelier earrings but one or the other you really want the piece you choose to stand out.   

Add a pair of FABULOUS Shoes and Voila!
