Chicago Spa Emphasizes Benefits Of Facials

Facials Help Maintain, Regenerate Skin Health

Facials provide an opportunity to work with a professional skin care specialist who will analyze your skin, hear your concerns and show you how to properly care for your skin based on your personal needs and skin condition. A facial can help promote the overall health of your skin, which includes:

  • Stimulating blood flow
  • Softening skin
  • Removing dead skin
  • Encouraging new skin growth
  • Restoring skin complexion
  • Treating acne
  • Relieving stress
  • Hydrating chronic dry skin
  • Cleansing and detoxification

Choosing the type of facial that you need is the first step. Some facial treatments offer a deep cleanse of the skin, while others provide moisture to skin cells. Some facials can specifically treat acne.

The Key Benefits Of Facials

Cleansing: Facials will deep cleanse your skin. Removing toxins from pollution and our diet is essential for healthy skin. Facials can reduce an overabundance of sebum, which is a natural substance that moisturizes and lubricates our skin. Overproduction of sebum can cause skin problems, including blackheads and acne. Cleansing facials open the pores of the skin, remove dead skin and toxins from the face, and clean the surface of the skin through exfoliation that tightens and firms the skin. Steam treatments raise the temperature of the skin and soften the hardened oil in the pore, making it easier for extraction and deep pore cleansing.

Exfoliation: Exfoliation stimulates regeneration of skin cells, while removing dead, dry skin. Exfoliation also can break down stubborn marks on the skin. Exfoliation also allows the active ingredients in skin care products to absorb deeper within the skin for maximum benefit.

Increased Circulation: A facial massage helps increase microcirculation to bring new nutrients to skin cells. This gives your skin a healthy glow and pumps skin cells full of with vital nutrients and water, which reduces the appearance of wrinkled and dry skin. Nutrition, circulation and hydration are essential for youthful, healthy skin. A facial can help smooth fine lines, while promoting collagen production, which is essential to anti-aging and healthy skin.

Along with all of the skin benefits stated above, facials are incredibly relaxing and stress reducing and should be performed every 4-6 weeks. Facial treatments can help slow the aging process of our skin, while contributing to our overall health. Facials are not the silver-bullet solution, however. While highly beneficial, facials can’t overcome a the negative impacts of poor diet and a lack of exercise. Healthy skin is just part of your overall health.

Heart Rhythm Reflects Health, Harmony

Positive Thoughts Critical To Health, Beauty

According to new research from the HeartMath Institute, our thoughts and emotions affect us and others more than we realized. Our hearts are an amazing source of intelligence, the seat of our emotions and the source and messenger of vital information essential for physical health and balance. Research shows that our heart rhythm patterns are more smooth and balanced with positive emotions and more jagged and erratic with negative emotions. This is more positive feedback that our emotions and thoughts affect our body inside and out–including our skin.

Energy healing facial treatments and sound energy therapy are both great ways to help you with positive emotions to keep your body healthy and younger looking.

Take a look at this short video clip to learn more.
What is heart intelligence? Heart intelligence is the flow of intuitive awareness, understanding and inner guidance we experience when the mind and emotions are brought into coherent alignment with the heart. It can be activated through self-initiated practice. The more coherent we are and the more we pay attention to this deeper intuitive inner guidance, the greater our ability to access this intelligence more frequently. Heart intelligence underlies cellular organization and guides and evolves organisms toward increased order, awareness and coherence of their bodies’ systems.

Natural Anti-Aging Secrets

Chicago Spa Offers Seven Tips For Healthier Skin

Sesame Seed Oil: Massage organic sesame oil all over your body. Working it into the skin gets your blood circulating. Plus, the oil hydrates your skin, giving it a healthy glow. Then take a shower and rinse away dead skin cells.

Fish Oil: Anti-inflammatories are the best anti-agers out there. From improving heart and immune functions to helping hair grow and skin look supple, they truly do wonders. I take three 500 milligram capsules of omega-3 fish oil in the morning and at night. Look for labels that say, ‘molecularly distilled for purity,’ which means pesticide-free.

Geneva skin care and facials

Avoid White Sugar: The number-one ingredient that I avoid in my diet is processed sugar. The reason: It speeds up the aging process by binding to and eventually weakening the collagen in your skin, which can lead to premature wrinkles and sagging. Eat lots of vegetables and fruits every day.

Use White Sugar As An Exfoliant: Before you toss out that bag of white sugar, add it to your skin care arsenal. In the shower, lather your hands with a mild cleanser, add a handful of white sugar, and rub it all over your face and body. It makes your skin very smooth.

Treat Eyes With Extra Care: I treat the skin around my eyes separately. Face creams can be too irritating, but products made for this delicate area work wonders for smoothing fine lines.

Pamper Your Hands: Take care of your hands with the same routine used on your face. Exfoliate your hands and use a mask on them, too. Try an enzyme concentrate on your face and hands.

Give Your Skin Vitamins: Try an over-the-counter topical vitamin C cream with a 30 percent concentration. It’s a wonderful antioxidant that helps skin repair itself from sun damage. Another way to inject your skin with moisture and vitamin C is with bananas. Mash up a banana and apply it to your skin as a mask. Let it set just like a regular mask and wash it off after it drys.

Also, be sure to minimize your consumption of alcohol and tobacco. We also urge you to minimize your use of makeup. Although makeup might make you look happy and healthy, it can clog pores and inject toxins directly into your body.

Charcoal Facials The Latest Skin Care Treatment

Editor’s Note: The experts at Skin Care Plus haven’t added charcoal facials to the services, yet, but it’s catching on like wildfire. What have you heard?

Extracts Toxins From The Skin

Activated charcoal is the latest ingredient to take the beauty industry by storm — giving other hipster favorites like clay and coconut oil a run for their money. And now the black residue is being used in everything from teeth-whitening solutions to a lemonade cleanse, and even as the key ingredient in an expensive new facial.

Geneva skin care and facial

“Charcoal is known to absorb 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities, making it an excellent natural ingredient to help purify and deep-clean skin,” says Wendy Brooks, director of global product development at Origins, a beauty company. She says the company’s Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask is one of its best sellers. At Ling Skincare and Spa near Union Square in New York, the Charcoal Facial ($260), incorporates crushed black charcoal as a soft powder mask after extractions with claims that it helps draw out toxins. The 90-minute treatment features a 15-minute charcoal mask, a thick, pudding-like mixture that is applied to the face with a brush. And while dermatologists aren’t buying the hype, our face did feel pretty good post treatment.

Activated charcoal, created when oxygen is added to regular charcoal, is mostly used in the medical community to treat poison, GI tract infections and nausea. Regular charcoal, like the bricks you barbecue with, is used in everything from water filters to vacuum cleaners.

“How well does (charcoal) work on the skin? Truthfully, there isn’t solid clinical data one way or the other,” says dermatologist Dr. Craig Kraffert, who chalks up the popularity of the stuff to its weird factor. “Using a pitch-black product to purify the skin sounds both intriguing and cool … the uniqueness of the ingredient itself, especially its color, is likely the main driver behind the recent surge in popularity of activated charcoal facial cleansers and masks.”

Science aside, beauty bloggers are bonkers for the black goo, citing it as the new way to relieve and cleanse the body.

“I’ve been on this natural-living path,” says Shiva Rose, who blogs at the “holistic, healthy and authentic lifestyle” site The Local Rose, and keeps activated charcoal capsules with her whenever she travels. “I read that it can absorb different things for gastrointestinal issues, so I just started taking it with me.”

Rose says she thinks that, aside from healing her daughter’s spider and mosquito bites when mixed with a little baking soda, activated charcoal was excellent for skin treatments and even whitening her teeth.

“It makes your face dark,” says Rose, “but it draws out impurities from your pores.”

Carrot juice really does add pigment to the skin, which means that it adds to your complexion.

Seaweed is an effective facial treatment. It helps detox and open the pores, while nourishing the skin.

Turmeric is a popular spice and a healthy addition to any diet. It boosts circulation and helps people of all ages fight acne.

Skin Care Secrets From Glamour Girls

Models Share Top Tricks For Glowing Skin

Contrary to popular belief, not all models are born with glowing skin. They deal with complexion quirks like anyone else—and they’re often made ten times worse thanks to the amount of makeup they have to wear on the job. Although models are genetically gifted, they’re not immune to acne, puffy eyes, dry skin, and a host of other beauty problems.

For models, having anything but a glowing complexion is simply not an option. “Taking care of their skin is not about being vain or wanting to feel good—it’s an investment in their career,” says Samantha Wright, an esthetician at Dangene, a skin clinic in New York that counts A-list models and actresses among their clients.

Geneva skin care and facial

Understandably, models approach skin care a little differently than many of us—their jobs depend on it. Here’s what these professional beauties do to keep their skin in peak condition.

They make a plan—and stick with it.
Fashion Week happens in the spring and fall, but models prep all year ‘round. “I recommend people prepare months in advance before any large event,” says Dr. Jennifer MacGregor, a dermatologist at Union Square Laser Dermatology in New York City. “I usually start people six months out, but three months is okay.” Along with a topical skin-care regimen, she may recommend lasers (such as Fraxel or Permea) to address more challenging issues, such as hyperpigmentation.

They think of ALL of their skin.
Models never know when they’ll need to wear a plunging neckline or backless dress on the runway. That’s why their skin care doesn’t end with their face. “We can focus on the body, smoothing out the chest and the back—even the stomach,” Wright says. An appointment at Dangene starts with a head-to-toe evaluation, followed by customized treatments that could include mole removal, microdermabrasion, or a collagen-boosting LED session. “We might do an acid wash to get rid of all the dead skin cells,” Wright explains, “so when a model walks down the runway, she glistens, shines, and is flawless.”

They build a relationship with their dermatologist.
Dermatologist Dr. Jeannette Graf often answers questions via email or text, teaching her model clients how to treat mini-emergencies at home. Make sure your powder room is stalked with the lotions and potions you need to treat a blemish, calm your skin, or get an immediate glow.

They know what to do when zit happens.
If models break out before a big shoot, they have a couple of treatment options. “If it’s a deep cyst, they can come in for an emergency cortisone injection,” says Dr. MacGregor. By reducing inflammation, these shots reduce the size and redness of even the biggest blemish. For smaller breakouts, Dr. MacGregor recommendsNeutrogena On-the-Spot acne treatment. “It’s a more mild benzoyl peroxide that won’t cause as much irritation,” she explains. (For more on battling blemishes, read this.)

They make their facials count.
“Even models get stressed out,” says celebrity esthetician Joanna Vargas. “They’re running around and not eating well.” When this happens, Vargas gives models a Power Peel treatment. First, a mild fruit acid and paprika peel gently resurfaces the skin. Then, models sit under a healing LED light before oxygen is sprayed to brighten the complexion and destroy bacteria. “They look perfect without us having to do a lot of intervention,” Vargas says. And for a model, that’s just a perk of the job.

Geneva skin care and facial

Facial Mask

Two tablespoons quark, ½ teaspoon honey, a squeeze of lemon juice.

Summer Skin Care With Natural Masks

Natural Skin Care Tips

Genetic factors, oily skin and hormone changes are all major causes of acne. Intensive skin care during summer is different than what it is in other seasons. You should protect your skin against sun-rays and moisturize it regularly. Skin is usually exhausted during summer; the rising temperature helps secretion of oil for those who have oily skin. With sweat and dust, blisters are more likely to appear on the skin. Constantly taking good care of your skin by cleaning and applying moisturizers and masks could be the best skin care solution.

Geneva skin care and facial

Here are four natural masks that can be easily prepared in your kitchen and will help you take care of your skin this summer:

Sweet potato mask for dry skin 

Ingredients:
1 steamed sweet potato
1 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. milk
1 tbsp. ginger (You can use green tea if not available)

Steam sweet potato and mash it well with honey very well. Then add milk and ginger. Mix all ingredients until you get a dough. Apply the mask on your face and neck for 20 to 25 minutes. Then rinse it with warm water. This mask will moisturize and protect your skin from wrinkles. You can store the rest of the mask in the fridge to use it later.

Yeast and honey mask for all skin types

Ingredients: 
1 tsp. honey
2 tsp. yeast
1 tsp. sweet almond oil (for dry skin)
3 drops of lemon juice (for oily skin)

Mix honey with yeast in warm water. Apply the mixture to your face except for your eyes for 30 minutes then rinse your face with warm water. Repeat the mask twice a week until your skin gets better. Then make it once a week. Make sure to rinse your face before applying the mask and moisturize your skin with a cream after every mask. 

Orange and oat mask for oily skin

Ingredients: 
2 tsp. fresh orange juice
3 tsp. oats
1 tsp. white honey
1 tsp. egg whites

Mix all ingredients together. Then apply the mixture on your face and leave it to dry completely. Start massaging your skin in round motion. Then rinse your face and continue peeling. You can repeat the mask once a week.

Corn flour and rose water mask for all skin types

This mask is used to whiten and renew your skin. It is also a treatment for burnt skin
Ingredients:
3 tbsp. rose water
½ cup cold water
1 tbsp. corn flour


Stir corn flour with cold water and rose water on the stove for one minute to dissolve until it gets thick. Then put the mixture in the fridge to cool. Apply the mask on your face for 30 minutes. Rinse it with warm water and then with cold water to change temperature. This mask will provide you with a whiter and fresh skin.

Skin Care Important To Men

Male Market Growing Faster Than Women’s

The new face of Asia may be Shum Pak-hin’s. Every morning, Mr. Shum puts on a gel mask and then applies a day cream, a sunblock and sometimes a bit of eyeliner. At night, the 21-year-old Hong Kong native uses eye make-up remover, cleanses his skin and then applies an anti-age serum. The routine isn’t cheap: He spends about 3,000 Hong Kong dollars (US$387) a month on skin care and cosmetics. His biggest splurge: a HK$2,000 whitening cream by La Prairie.

“My skin ages very easily, much more than others,” says Mr. Shum. “This isn’t just for girls. Boys want to feel good, too.”

Geneva skin care and facial

Mr. Shum and a growing number of men like him are making Asia one of the fastest growing markets for men’s skin care. The region accounts for US$2.1 billion, or 64%, of the $3.3 billion spent globally in 2013 on such items as male skin creams, lotions and whiteners, according to data compiled in April by Euromonitor, a market-research firm.

That amount dwarfs the $286.4 million spent by North American men and the $682.9 million used by Western European males on the same products. China, including Hong Kong, is the largest market for men’s skin care, at $974.8 million, an amount that’s forecast to grow to $1.2 billion this year. In second place is South Korea, which spent $635 million.

“This is where the market’s development is happening. It’s very concentrated in Asia,” says Nicole Tyrimou, a beauty analyst for Euromonitor in London.

Men are still far from rivaling women—the women’s skin-care market is valued at more than 30 times the men’s at $107.6 billion. But men’s skin-care products are growing at a much faster pace, 9.4% compared with 4.8% for women’s skin care.

And as men have only recently considered buying items like serums and deep-cleansing moisturizing soap, beauty companies see much more potential for expansion among males, compared with the mature women’s skin-care market.

The most enthusiastic adoption, by far, is in South Korea, where male celebrities, like singer and actor Rain, have long endorsed skin care in billboards and television ads, paving the way for broader acceptance. South Korean men spent US$25.30 per capita on skin care in 2013—more than three times second-place Denmark. Asian countries account for five of the top 10 countries in per capita spending.

“There is a wider idea of skin care being effeminate in many countries, but in Korea this doesn’t seem to be the case,” says Simon Duffy, co-founder of the U.K. brand Bulldog, which started selling its line in Korean stores last year.

Some retail experts attribute Asian men’s relative affinity for skin care to simply following the lead of the women around them. “If your mother has a nine-step skin routine, which happens a lot in Korea, you’re going to do five,” says Ms. Tyrimou.

Like Asian women, Asian men are interested in whitening creams to lighten their skin’s color.

Alexis Perakis -Velat, vice president for Asia Pacific at L’Oréal SA, believes climate is a large factor in the growing male beauty trend because much of China and Korea has cold, dry winters and hot, humid summers. “When you live in central China in winter, you’re happy to put a good hydrating cream on your skin,” says Mr. Perakis-Valat. The executive added the men’s beauty market in China is growing two to three times faster than the overall global beauty market for men.

Some brands say more work still needs to be done to make men’s skin care seem less feminine—especially at the department stores and drugstores where it’s generally sold.

“The main obstacle is that department stores are not really a masculine environment,” says Laurent Lautier, president of Asia Pacific at Clarins.

But back in Hong Kong, Mr. Shum, who also writes a beauty blog, says he doesn’t view skin care as a women’s preserve. He says he became interested in men’s skin care at the age of 17 after watching a male friend demonstrate his own routine.

“Before our generation, men hated skin care and didn’t want to do it,” he says. “But the culture is different now.”

Skin Care Secrets Of The Celebrities

Top Skin Care Trends In Hollywood

It often seems like celebrities know about the latest skin care products and treatments long before the general public. But mainly that’s because stars have access to the world’s best dermatologists and esthetician. It is these top skin care gurus who are creating breakthrough procedures or testing out newly discovered ingredients. So if you want to be ahead of the skin care game, you’ve got to pick the brains of Sonya Dakar, Dr. David Colbert and Kate Somerville, to name a few. We sat down with the top six celebrity skin care pros and found out what’s trending right now.

Geneva skin care and facial

DR. DAVID COLBERT, Celeb Clients Include: Michelle Williams

Next Big Ingredient: “Passion fruit oil and Qusome technology,” says Dr. Colbert. “It’s like a Trojan horse. It tricks the skin into delivering active ingredient deeper into the epidermis.”

Top Tip for Spring: Dr. Colbert recommends scoring an facial oil that includes retinol and vitamin C along with argan, borage seed and marula oil, which will leave the skin soft and glowy.

SONYA DAKAR, Celeb Clients Include: Gwyneth Paltrow

Next Big Ingredient: “There are some exciting plant stem cells bring used in beauty products. Some are derived from plants and fruits that can stay fresh for a long time such as Swiss apples, edelweiss, roses, and date palms,” Dakar shares. “Stem cells help with the growth of new cells and the production of collagen, elastin and protein, which prevent and smooth wrinkles.”

Top Tip for Spring: “While I am a fan of skin oils, spring is a good time to transition to a lighter moisturizer. While oil nourishes skin and absorbs into it, you may also want to layer a lighter lotion on top.”

KATE SOMERVILLE, Celeb Clients Include: Kerry Washington

Next Big Ingredient: “Ingredients that are designed to protect telomeres,” Somerville shares. “A telomere is a region of repetitive DNA at the end of a chromosome, which protects the end of the chromosome from deterioration. When the telomere becomes too short, the chromosome reaches ‘critical length’ and can no longer replicate. This means the cell becomes old and dies. When this happens to skin cells, it causes dryness, wrinkles and sagging—the visible signs of aging.”

Top Tip for Spring: “Exfoliate! Look for formulas with fruit enzymes and smooth microbeads for a dual-action exfoliation.”

OANNA VARGAS, Celeb Clients Include: Naomi Watts

Next Big Ingredient: “Phyto stem edelweiss. Plant stem cells are going to really blow up in beauty,” Vargas says. “This one is one of the best because it will stimulate collagen and elastin productionand it’s natural.

Top Tip for Spring: “For spring I always say to focus on detoxing, both inside and out.” She recommends a facial that uses grapefruit, honey and oxygen to detox the skin. And for internal cleansing, she suggests trying “Dr. Frank Lipman’s cleanse. It helps the skin so much to clean out your digestive system—you’ll have fewer breakouts.”

RENÉE ROULEAU, Celeb Clients Include: Demi Lovato

Next Big Ingredient: “Peptide Haloxyl, which contains a combination of amino acids that are stimulating your own detox enzymes to work more efficiently in eliminating accumulation of dark pigment released from the red blood cells, strengthens eye tissue to prevent further leakage,” Rouleau says. “Simply put: it activates the elimination of blood originated pigments responsible for dark circle color and local inflammation.”

Top Tip for Spring: “The change of season from winter to spring can bring on increased breakouts since winter’s dry air can leave the skin with some residual dead skin cell buildup. Then when the temperatures start to warm up, it can bring increased oil flow, which can get trapped underneath cellular layers.

DR. FREDRIC BRANDT, Celeb Clients Include: Kelly Ripa

Next Big Ingredient: Biomimetic Tri-Amino Acids Peptide,” says Dr. Brandt. “This peptide inhibits the production of progerins—which are cell aging markers/mutated proteins that accelerate entry in senescence of the cells—and reinforces skin architecture.”

Top Tip for Spring: “Sunscreen!”
