Make a Great First Impression.....Every Time!

We have all heard the old adage, "You never get a second chance to make a first impression." In both our personal and professional lives...we simply can't help it.... we make a judgment about people the very first time we meet them. We dissect their hair, skin, and overall appearance as we quietly decide if we want to be associated with this person.  Be advised....you are being dissected, as well. Keep reading for a few tips to make a great first impression every time!!

Don't sleep in your makeup!
For radiant skin, it's so important to wash your face morning and night, and follow up with a moisturizing or treatment cream. We have several from which to choose. Consult with a Jacqueline Morgan esthetician for a recommendation. Sleeping in your makeup is a recipe for dirty, dull skin. It's simple...just don't do it!

Use a deep-cleansing mask
A deep-cleansing mask like Pevonia's enzyme peel (one of our top sellers), or from SkinPHd; AHA 7 Fruit Amidroxy Exfoliator (my personal favorite, is an important step in relieving your skin of impurities because it dissolves any dead skin cells and congestion from the surface of your skin leaving you feeling soft, smooth and re-hydrated!

You are what you eat!
Toss out the sugars and starches! Instead, choose healthy foods like fruits and vegetables to snack on. One of the best ways to get your skin, hair, and body back in shape is to include berries, carrots, and green vegetables in your diet. The vitamins and minerals in these foods are crucial for glowing skin and hair, and a healthy body. And don't forget the water. A hydrated body is a beautiful body!

Get a workout in
Not only does exercise get you in tip top shape, but it also boosts circulation and opens pores, much like a good spa steaming. Try hitting a low-impact cardio machine or taking a brisk walk for 30 minutes each evening. You will be surprised how great you look and feel after a few weeks of sticking to a workout plan.

First impressions are so important! If you follow these simple steps, you will make a fabulous first impression every time!

Ask a Therapist

Q: I spent a lot of time outdoors this summer. My skin is dry and hyper pigmented. I have a few brown spots on my face. What is the best way to undo some of the damage from being outside so much?

A: Hyperpigmentation can be treated, but does require professional facial treatments (Ultimate or Vitamin C) along with the following recommended home care routine:

Morning:
Step 1 - Cleanse with a dime-sized amount of AVST Cleansing Lotion, Cleansing Gel or Sebuwash for your particular skin type. Rinse with tepid water.
Step 2 - Tone with AVST Moisturizing Toner, Alpha Toner Forte or C-Quence Toner for your particular skin type.
Step 3 - Treat with Clarifying Lotion with finger tips to pigmented areas of the skin. To diffuse pigmentation or freckles, apply Clarifying Lotion to entire face in place of toner.
Step 4 - Vitaminize  - Apply 1 - 2 pumps of AVST 1 or C-Quence 1 (when acclimated, move up through the range) to face and neck.
Step 5 - Spot Treatment with C-Boost to pigmented areas/spots.
Step 6 - Protect with Sunscreen all exposed areas of the face and body

Evening:
Follow steps 1 - 5 above.
Options: C-Quence Energising Masque may be used on pigmented areas only 2 - 3 times per week for 3 - 6 months.  For stubborn pigmented areas, apply Retinol 1 - 3 before applying C-Boost.
