Spring is on its way, and all of us could benefit from some epidermal spring-cleaning. Your pros at Kucumber have some wonderful tips to refresh your skin for spring!
Our Laser Spectra-Peel at Kucumber skin lounge is sure to refresh and rejuvenate your “winter dulls” for spring. This is a high-tech, anti-aging skin enhancement for your full face, neck, hands, or body with the use of dual pulsed ND:YAG laser technology. Collagen production is stimulated leaving your skin refreshed, brighter and younger looking for spring!
Spectra-Peel for acne attacks acne deep in the skin layers by exfoliating the sebum which causes those nasty clogs and break outs. Acne is immediately reduced and your skin tone and texture will improve.
Try some soothing herbal infusions, such as Calendula and Chamomile, for irritated, tired skin and eyes. Both of these herbs will sooth and calm aggravated skin. Look for products that use only flower petals and are organically grown and harvested. Alternatively, you can make your own herbal infusion using early spring herbs found locally. Store the infusion in the refrigerator for no more than two days.
Exfoliate to remove dead, dull skin, avoid clogged pores, and improve your skin’s ability to hydrate from moisturizers and toners. Always follow up exfoliation with moisturizers.
Hydrate from the inside out! Not only make sure you are drinking enough water, but drink water that is best for your skin such as purified spring water. Normal tap water has excess fluoride, chlorine, metals and other ingredients that can cause sensitive skin more prone to breakouts. Nutritionists and dermatologists recommend 50% of your body weight in ounces per day. For example, if you weigh 125 lbs., drink 63 ounces of water. Hydrate from the outside in with moisture creams and a good moisture inducing masque once or twice weekly. A good quality herbal masque will replenish your skin’s depleted nutrients and hydration as well as stimulating circulation.
For more skin rejuvenation and protection from the inside out, we recommend. Astaxanthin: This uber-antioxidant is known to reverse the signs of skin aging, reverse dryness and inflammatory issues with your skin, and protects the skin’s outer layer against oxidative stress. The youthful, vibrant skin benefits derived from Astaxanthin are supported in this NIH study. An added benefit is Astaxanthin’s SPF properties from the inside out!
