Lash Season

Summer is here! That means trips to the beach, sweat, swimming, and humidity. It’s hard enough trying to look our best in the off season, add in any one or a combo of the aforementioned and an otherwise gorgeous woman can end up looking like a drowned rat! Mascara dripping, tried, depleted…

We know summer also means that it is wedding season, and wether you are a bride, bridesmaid, or guest, you want to look amazing with minimal upkeep.

One way to beat the elements is with a set of Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions! These will keep you looking fresh and awake take you from the beach to the chapel to your honeymoon with little fuss!

One of Kendra’s latest sets of extensions!

Protect Your Body’s Largest Organ

 

It is now pretty commonplace knowledge that the sun is damaging.  Yet many people are not taking the necessary steps to protect thier largest organ, the skin.

Lets explore the facts:

  • On a gray/overcast day up to 80 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays can still pass through clouds.  Do apply sunscreen (SPF 15 or greater) every day of the year.
  • Sun is strongest between 10am-2pm
  • A majority of skin sun damage occurs before the age of 18.
  • Approximately 80% of premature aging is caused by the sun.
  • UVA and UVB wavelengths have different effects on skin but both cause damage.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Sunscreen

Apply sunscreen 15-20 minutes prior to sun exposure. For maximum effectiveness, sunscreen needs to be fully absorbed into your skin.

Use waterproof sunscreen if swimming or sweating. Keep in mind even these formulas will wear off after 30 minutes or more spent in the water or after sweating. They can also easily rub off when you towel-dry after a swim.

Don’t apply sunscreen just to the face. Apply liberally to the entire body, even skin covered by clothing.

Aveda has recently released an amazing breakthrough in sunscreen. Daily Light guard is a mineral based, sheer, non-whitening sunscreen with an SPF 30 that also protects against free radicals*! If you have used a zinc based sunscreen before you know that they can be thick, chalky and unforgiving, forget about wearing them under makeup everyday. If you want the benefits of a natural sunscreen without the mess and embarrassment of your traditional sunscreen this is for you.

*Free radicals are atoms, ions, or molecules that contain an unpaired electron. The unpaired electron makes them unstable and highly reactive. In a process called oxidation, free radicals steal electrons from other molecules—fats, proteins, cell membranes, and even DNA—altering the fundamental structure of the affected molecule. One unbalanced molecule may not sound like a major concern, but oxidation sets off a chain reaction by damaging a cell’s DNA, structure, and ability to function. Over time, oxidative damage accumulates and contributes to aging and a variety of degenerative diseases. (http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/natural-health/what-are-free-radicals/)

Pramasana, Awaken your Scalp

If you’ve spent any time in a yoga studio, you have no doubt heard the word “asana,” which means “position” in Sanskrit. Our new Pramāsana™ collection incorporates the word because we believe that a healthy scalp is the foundation (or “prama” in Sanskrit) that positions your hair for its greatest beauty. To that end, we’ve paired ancient Ayurvedic wisdom and modern science to create products and rituals that help you cleanse and care for your scalp, helping your hair to reach its fullest potential.

The line features three home care products, which can be used together to give yourself an Awakening Scalp Ritual: The Exfoliating Scalp Brush, Purifying Scalp Cleanser and Protective Scalp Concentrate. Scalp dry brushing (the cornerstone of the home treatment)—inspired by ancient Ayurvedic wisdom—begins the cleansing process by exfoliating the scalp to help loosen build up and impurities. It also helps increase micro‐circulation. Used as part of the system, it is the first step in creating an optimal foundation for beautiful hair.

Marc Zollicoffer, Director of Professional Spa Education at Aveda says to consider the brush as a massage tool, using small circular motions and focusing your work on the scalp, rather than the hair. The beauty of the Exfoliating Scalp Brush is that it was designed with looped bristles which are great for massaging your scalp without tangling your hair.

To get the full effects of the scalp dry brushing treatment, follow the steps below.

1. Brush through your hair to detangle.

2. Take a deep conscious breath and focus on your breathing throughout the process.
3. To stimulate the roots of your hair, brush from the hairline to the crown of the head in an upward motion. Repeat covering the entire scalp.
4. Using a downward motion or arc, massage the entire right side of the scalp for 15 seconds. Repeat on the left side.
5. Gently press the brush into the scalp starting from the back bristles of the brush moving the pressure to the front bristles in a rolling motion. Cover the entire scalp.
6. Gently tap the brush on the scalp, covering the entire scalp.

In addition to boosting microcirculation, you’ll find that scalp massage feels great due to the high number of nerve endings in the area. Plus, it provides a moment of relaxation. “Most of us are literally in our heads thinking all day long, and we don’t realize how much tension we hold in our scalps,” says Marc, who notes that by massaging along the occipital ridge (the shelf at the base of the skull), specifically, you can release tension in both your head and shoulders. And who couldn’t stand to release a little tension?

Follow the ritual by cleansing with the Pramāsana™ Purifying Scalp Cleanser, and then keep sebum levels balanced and scalp protected from pollution and free radicals with the Protective Scalp Concentrate.

 

Happy brushing!
