What many of you don't know about the sunless industry is there are many solutions for a business to use on clients. From very cheap to high end solutions which offer a 2 for 1 skin treatment while you process. I do weekly research to know whats new on the market so that I'm using the best products I can for your tan. One amazing ingredient is Hyaluronic Acid....read on to find out about this Anti-Aging powerhouse.
A spotlight on ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid and what it does for the skin is really amazing. It something your body produces naturally but decreases as we get older. Here are just a few of the benefits of this magic Anti-Aging ingredient; It attracts and binds water within the cells in the tissue under the skin. Literally acting like a sponge to retain supple firm skintone and youthful appearance. It actually can absorb 1,000 x's its weight in water with in the skins tissue. Very few products use the amazing ingredient due to its significant cost in comparison to inferior ingredients. Not only does it deliver results it supplies the skin with superior hydration and other important elements to fight lines and wrinkles on a regular basis.
In my sunless Prep its actually the 4th ingredient which is why I call it my insurance especially dealing with winter skin in the NW. My Organic based solutions also contain Hyaluronic acid in high quantities as well as other Organic elements like Organic aloe, Organic Chinese Jojoba sees oil, Organic Caffeine seed and Organic essential oils.
So now you have an idea of why prices for a sunless tan range from 20.00 up to 75.00 or more. You do get what you pay for when looking for a sunless tan, so be a client in the know and ask your tech about the ingredients in their solutions.
Now that the Christmas holiday is over next up on the Calendar is NYE 2011! I wanted to give a few tips on looking amazing...whether or not your going to the hottest party in town or staying home with your sweetie.
As always first up is sloughing off that dead skin, I really can't say enough of this beauty ritual that is soooo good for your skin on many levels. Besides doing it for your sunless tan it can help with breakouts, dry skin and even lessen unevenness in the skin tone.
To give your skin more TLC and ease dry skin would be to add some essential oils to your bath, keeping the water warm not HOT which is even more drying to the epidermis. After your bath make sure to pat dry with your towel as you would when you have your sunless glow to help seal in the oils from your bath. Follow up with a high quality lotion to seal in even more moisture...your skin will feel amazing.
One easy and free thing you can do for your skin is to make sure you drink enough water. Keeping hydrated from the inside out is very important for glowing skin, it will also help your sunless tan last longer as well. My clients that use a good lotion and drink adequate amounts of H2O notice a difference in their tan lasting longer, taking more evenly (less dry patchy areas) So drink up gals!
Finally when you have made these tips part of your beauty regimen the difference in how you will feel about the biggest organ on you will be amazing. Confidence in how you feel about yourself is sexy...period!
I realize there are still plenty of people that have the mindset it won't happen to me, the fact is that skin cancer is the fastest growing type of cancer. The young women between the ages of 22- 28 have the highest number of cases due to over use of Tanning Beds and sunbathing.
Most Americans over do it when it comes to the sun, espeically when you live in an area like Seattle. When ever the sun comes out here, seems lots of people head outside; no sunscreen mind you...and get burned. Every burn you gets ups your risk of Skin Cancer by over 50%!
On the other hand the debate especially in the NW is that we are VERY deficient in Vitamin D, we all should be taking a supplement on a daily basis. We also need natural Vit. D that the sun provides and about 10 minutes or so w/o sunscreen is plenty.
My Aunt was recently diagnosed with Brain Cancer...believe it or not it ALL started with a melanoma that they found on her arm! It was removed but the cancer unbeknown to the doctor had spread to her Brain and now part of her lung as well. My Aunt has never been a sun worshiper and is fair skin, but she loves to work in the garden and be outdoors...with sunscreen.
I mention this about my Aunt because for those of you who use tanning beds to get your "glow" you will regret it someday...it will catch up with you. Whether its from saggy skin, wrinkles, sun spots or worse skin cancer the clock is ticking. I hope this makes you think next time you stop by your local tanning salon....GO Sunless its the only way to get a Safe Tan...Period.
Thanks for listening!
