Does Exfoliation Cause Dry Skin? By Beauty Salon Taringa – Call Us On 07 3871 0477

In short, no way! However, over exfoliation does cause rough, irritated skin. That’s why we stress for you to be gentle with your home care. The harder you rub the product, the less positive results you will see. Instead, you will only damage your skin, and you definitely don’t want that!

Gentle exfoliation should be an integral part of your skincare routine. It helps to speed up the process of skin renewal by removing old dead skin, revealing younger, smoother skin.

Once or twice a week should be plenty, unless your aesthetician directs otherwise. Use circular motions, rinse thoroughly and then apply moisturizer. Remember, easy does it!

Where To Start With Sensitive Skin By Beauty Salon Taringa – Call Us On 07 3871 0477

It’s the hardest of all skin types to maintain. For those of you with sensitive skin, you also know that it’s maddening.

While the cause of sensitive skin is unknown, there are medical conditions like rosacea, lupus, eczema, or contact dermatitis that can create it. It’s easily irritated, tends to form lumps and is prone to redness.

To add insult to injury, sensitive skin can also be oily, which makes it difficult to reduce oil, and acne, (if you have it) without causing irritation. However, it can be done!

If your sensitive skin is driving you crazy, we encourage you to come in for a professional skin analysis. One of our highly trained aestheticians will gently and thoroughly examine your skin.

She will also talk to you about your everyday challenges with it, and take a look at what’s going on beneath the surface. In combination with her professional expertise. she will complete the picture of your skin’s true condition.

From there, your aesthetician can make product and treatment recommendations to help decrease sensitivity. You can save yourself a lot of heartache and expense by starting with a professional skin analysis.

*If you’ve got sensitive skin, we’d love to help!

*Please note that there are some rare individuals that cannot tolerate any products. We advise medical supervision for this very complicated condition.

What If You Don’t Like Scrubs For Exfoliating? By Beauty Salon Taringa – Call Us On 07 3871 0477

That’s a fair question! Some people just really don’t like scrubs, even though they are very easy to use. So what else can you do? Plenty!

Choose an exfoliating mask. Some do have granular ingredients, but we would suggest an exfoliating mask that contains enzymes such as AHA’s and/or BHA’s, or malic acid. These enzymes are derived from food and milk.

Many exfoliating masks also combine plant and essential oils that enhance the benefits of exfoliation such unclogging and tightening pores, limiting signs of lines and wrinkles and increasing the smoothness of your skin.

Exfoliating masks are applied like any other mask and left on for 10 minutes. During that time, it not only exfoliates but it works double duty purging the skin of impurities, smoothing and brightening.

So don’t think you have to use a scrub, you don’t. You can mix it up or just choose to use your favorite. Don’t know what would be best for you? That’s where we come in.

We can show you our line and suggest a perfect match or two!

What To Do About Rosacea

What To Do About Rosacea By Beauty Salon Taringa – Call Us On 07 3871 0477

A baffling disease, one that is not fully understood, rosacea sufferers appear to process cathelicidin, a skin protein within the skin, differently than the rest of us.

Common features include redness, flushing, and prominent blood vessels. Commonly reported environmental triggers are the sun, followed by heat, spicy foods, alcohol and stress, as well as caffeine and citric acid.

Rosacea is hard on a woman’s self-esteem! Thankfully, there are drug therapies to ease and control inflammation. But the most exciting part is the inclusion of lasers and light therapies to effectively treat the redness and flushing associated with rosacea.

Pulsed-light lasers go down one wavelength and destroy the red cells. Intense pulsed light uses lots of light to destroy some of the pigmentation as well as redness. Multiple treatments of either therapy are needed, but they produce long-lasting results.

Believe it or not, the legendary W.C. Fields, American Vaudeville entertainer, was thought to have rosacea because of his large, bulb-shaped ruddy, oily nose, another characteristic of rosacea.

The public mistakenly concluded that he was an alcoholic! Today, if you have rosacea, you do not have to live with the telltale signs of the disease. While there may not be an answer to the rosacea mystery, there are effective, long-lasting treatments, and we have them.

To find out which one is right for you, set up a consultation today!

Got questions about getting a Brazilian? Great! We’ve got answers. Here’s our list of what to do before and after your Brazilian wax.

 

Do’S & Don’Ts Of Getting A Brazilian By Beauty Salon Taringa – Call Us On 07 3871 0477

Do’S & Don’Ts Of Getting A Brazilian

Before Your Brazilian:

  • DO let the hair grow ¼ to ½ an inch—no longer! This is the ideal length for less pain and a quicker wax session.

 

  • DO help prevent ingrown hairs by gently exfoliating the area several days before your appointment.

 

  • DO be very clean. Make sure you shower the day of your wax to help prevent infection. You’ll feel more comfortable and so will your wax technician.

 

  • DO take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen a half-hour beforehand, if you’re very sensitive.

 

  • DON’T schedule your appointment for about a week before or during your period, you’ll be much more sensitive, causing more pain.

 

  • DON’T apply any creams or lotions before your wax. You’ll get better results if your skin is dry.

 

After your Brazilian  

  • DO soothe the area with cool compresses once you get home.

 

  • DO wash the area twice daily if you are prone to developing red bumps or ingrown hairs. Apply an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream for a few days after your wax.

 

  • If you develop bumps, DON’T ever pick or squeeze them! This could lead to scarring. DO apply hydrocortisone and benzoyl peroxide gel, pads or wash (all available in your pharmacy without a prescription).

 

DON’T wear tight underwear or clothing in synthetic materials to prevent irritation. It’s best to stick to natural fabrics that breathe.

Temptation And Aging By Beauty Salon Taringa – Call Us On 07 3871 0477

It’s called “age management medicine,” and the goal isn’t to get you to live longer, but to live healthier.

Foods that are high in simple sugars, carbohydrates and bad fats wreak havoc not just on your health, but your skin!

Skin professionals have long known of the many benefits of applying topical nutrients such as vitamin C to the skin.

In fact, topical application of vitamin C has shown some impressive results in reversing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reducing inflammation, and improving the health of skin.

But not all vitamin C is created equal. It must be stabilized to get the most from it. We have excellent products that include stabilized vitamin C to give your skin a glowing, youthful look.

But we also know that it takes more than skin care to make great skin. Too much highly processed food, sodas and cigarette smoking wreak havoc on your health and your skin.

We encourage all of our clients to skip the bad fat, high carb diet. Choose real foods that add more skin glowing effects and health benefits.

The point is to take care of your skin from the inside out. Get facials and other clinical treatments to slow down time.

But choose to keep that love going when you pick up a fork! The treatments and products that you use from us will work so much better.

Good skin care and potent anti-aging strategies really are teamwork.

Are Carbs Bad For Your Skin? By Beauty Salon Taringa - Call Us On 07 3871 0477

Are Carbs Bad For Your Skin? By Beauty Salon Taringa – Call Us On 07 3871 0477

The short answer is, yes and no. Here’s why. You need carbohydrates for energy. Unfortunately, we tend to eat way too many of them!

It’s a two-fold problem. Breads, pasta, rice, potatoes, and muffins all tend to aggravate acne breakouts. Dr, Jessica Wu, the Hollywood dermatologist, said this. “In one study, volunteers who ate a high carb diet experienced a 20% increase in their levels of androgens (“male” hormones that stimulate oil glands and cause acne) after just one week; volunteers who ate a diet high in protein had balanced blood sugar and lower levels of androgens in a week.”

Secondly, once consumed, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose, or blood sugar, and interact with proteins in your skin. This stimulates enzymes that break down collagen and elastin!

And you know what that means, thinner skin that’s more likely to wrinkle.

Balance carbohydrates with protein and fresh vegetables. Avoid the refined stuff and stick with whole grains for glowing, beautiful skin!

Did You Know This Contributes To Adult Acne? By Beauty Salon Taringa – Call Us On 07 3871 0477

Adult acne is not only frustrating it can be highly embarrassing. It’s bad enough as a teenager, but now? We see a lot of women with this condition and we hear the same lament, “I never had acne in high school. Why do I have it now?”

Adult acne has increased in recent years, but we’ve found one common thread with our adult acne clients. Are you ready for this?

These clients are using the wrong products with the wrong formulation to treat their condition!

It’s no wonder they’re frustrated because their skin is not responding. What most people do not realize is that you have to take a step back. You must establish a cause and effect for any skin type, and that includes acne.

• Is it due to a medical condition such as lupus? And if so, what’s the treatment protocol?

• Is it due to stress?

• Heredity?

A professional skin analysis with one of our highly qualified aestheticians can get to the root cause. She will discuss with you:

• Your lifestyle

• Any medical condition you may have

• Your current skin care regimen

• Your diet

Then she will analyze your skin to get an objective look at what’s going on beneath the surface. This technology combined with her training will tell you precisely what your skin wants.

No guessing. No wrong products. No wasted money.

Skin simply can’t respond if it doesn’t have the right ingredients and they are loaded with cheap fillers! When you add a clinical treatment to further boost the effectiveness of your skincare products, we expect you to say, “I can’t believe how great I look!”

If you’ve got acne and you’re not happy with your current regimen, please consider a professional skin analysis with us. It will make a smooth difference in your world!
