IS LIFE'S PACE BURNING YOU OUT? A FACIAL AT RED LOTUS SKIN CARE MAY BE THE BEST IDEA. SOMETIMES LIFE JUST NEEDS A CHANGE.Read Now
I notice many clients come into me at Red Lotus Skin Care in Portland, because they are burnt out and want a nice, relaxing facial. Most of my clients say it the best facial they have had, but sometime spa facials just aren't enough. Maybe a life change may be in order. I enjoyed this article out of Canada about this family and their choice to change the big stuff. When Turning 40 Means Letting Go Of The Life You Thought You Wanted
Two years ago, Julie Nowell could not have envisioned those words coming out of her mouth. She was a mom of three, living with her husband, Matt, in the Vancouver suburb of Port Moody, and feeling increasingly bogged down by the consumerism and stresses surrounding her.They both worked in the city, she at a start-up digital company and her husband at a company he’d been with for 15 years, that paid well and helped with the mortgage, but with values he couldn’t get behind. And the area they were living in wasn’t helping matters.“We were tired of the constant ‘keep your lawn trimmed’ mentality, or our kids would come home and say ‘so and so says their playroom is bigger than ours,” she tells the Huffington Post Canada. “We’ve always been a close family, and we’ve always liked our kids, unlike what we felt a lot of people were doing. On the weekends, it seemed our neighbours spent a lot of time keeping their kids busy and away from them.”Finally one weekend before Julie was leaving for the Everywoman conference in Whistler, Matt came home early to take over watching the kids, and she saw he was just "crashed."
RED LOTUS SKIN CARE HAS FACIALS, PEEL AND SPA TREATMENTS FOR FINE LINES AND WRINKLES THAT PUT THE MOISTURE BACK INTO YOUR SKIN.Read Now
So what happens when your skin begins to age? Apart from fine lines and sagging! There are many things that happen to our skin as we age. Firstly, the collagen in our skin, that is, the supportive structure, starts to break down and it’s more difficult for our skin to build it back up again. The supportive subcutaneous fat, which supports our skin also begins breaks down. This makes our skin much thinner We also start to lack moisture. Ceramides, which are lipids, help to keep your skin pump and the moisture locked in, these lessen with age.
Vitamin C is critical for your body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy, resilient skin. While young skin is full of vitamin C, aging skin naturally loses this nutrient over time. Other factors like exposure to UV light, pollutants and cigarette smoke compound the decline of vitamin C, contributing to signs of aging.So what is the answer?It appears that the solution may be PHYTOCERAMIDES. Phytoceramides are the plant-derived equivalent of ceramides, a lipid that keeps your skin hydrated and plump. You start to lose ceramides as you age, and as a result, your skin beings to appear rough and wrinkled. Taking phytoceramides orally restores the natural outer layer of the skin. These powerful molecules work from the inside out, getting absorbed into the bloodstream and carried to the inner layer of your skin. From there, they seep to the outermost layer where they restore the cracked and damaged barrier, moisturize and fill out wrinkles and sun-damaged areas.Phytoceramides occur naturally in WHEAT-GRASS! They are also found in rice and yams. There is more vitamin C in wheat-grass than most other fruits or vegetables. (article reference http://www.nakedgreenz.com/phytoceramides/)

Tonya Zavasta, one of my favorite beauty and raw food writers just added it great article about beauty habits. She describes some great ideas and mental tendency that make sense to making good habits stick and count. She also mentions me and my Polish grandmother in the article, thanks Tonya. Tips for Establishing a "No-Wrinkles" Beauty Routine Starting a daily beauty routine can seem like a chore, particularly compared to all the "miracle" treatments offering quick fix solutions. However, commitment to a skincare regime should be no more difficult than any other aspect of our hygiene practices, like brushing our teeth for example. The key is finding the cue that will activate us to perform the routine.
Every morning we wake up to discover that our mouths have played host to a bacteria party overnight. Our breath is noxious, our teeth feel slimy and coarse, and we are driven to remove the offensive feeling. This is our cue. We respond accordingly by brushing our teeth at the first opportunity and are rewarded with a pleasant, fresh, tingling sensation. This feeling becomes imprinted in our brain and we start to crave the clean, fresh sensation whenever we feel our breath or teeth slip back in to an unclean state. This habit formation is described by Charles Duhigg in his best-selling book "The Power of Habit", as a process of three stages: Cue, Routine and Reward. The cue is the feeling of uncleanliness. The routine is brushing, and the reward is the fresh, tingling sensation afterwards. The cue makes us crave the reward so strongly that the performance of the routine is automatic.My skin is one of the features people seem to notice about me, and I am complimented quite regularly. This is a result of the daily skincare regime I follow, which I have found has become just as strong a habit for me as brushing my teeth. No matter how we are feeling, we still brush our teeth whether we're upset, angry or tired. In my case, I have created a cue between brushing my teeth and my beauty routine. If I do one, I'll definitely do the other, no matter how I am feeling."Oh mirror, mirror on the wall, why does my reflection make me recoil?" Have you ever had this thought when studying your 'just-out-of-bed' face in the cold, artificial bathroom light? As we age, it seems that every worry, restless night, or over-indulgence, leaves behind a visible reminder etched in our faces in the form of puffy, dark eyes, creases and wrinkles. Turn this feeling in to a cue to kick start your skin care in the morning!
Use the pillow creases or puffy face as a cue to put on a facial masque. A clay masque is the best option. (If you're using my Green Clay Masque, keep it on for only a few minutes). Then remove your masque with a brush, rinse your face with lukewarm water and gently pat dry. Apply a good quality moisturizer and begin a knuckle massage or scrape the skin with my Facial Strigil. Do something to provide stimulation for your skin. You will feel a pleasant tingling sensation, and puffiness and wrinkles are all but gone, or at least greatly diminished. Now you will be ready to face the world with confidence. This is your reward and you will begin to look forward to it, as I always do. Once your brain turns this beauty procedure into a habit, it will not require any effort on your part at all and will become as automatic as brushing your teeth. Similarly, my evening routine is so ingrained that I can't fall asleep if I haven't done it! I developed the habit of applying castor oil on my lashes and around the eye area as a teenager and, in forty years, there hasn't been a single evening when I haven't done it. My cue is going to bed and my reward is the moist, smooth and soft feeling around my eyes each morning.Over the years, I have added two more skin pampering treatments to my nightly routine. I discovered facial dry brushing in my forties and, in my mid-fifties, I added a night cream. When I'm ready to go to bed, I dry brush my skin, then I apply castor oil on my lashes and night cream on my face. I immediately feel a skin warming effect of the dry brushing and soothing effect of the night cream, but the real reward is the knowledge that I am treating my skin well and see the results each day.
As I was writing this article, I received this post on social media: "My grandmother was from Poland , she taught me most everything you teach Tonya. At 98 Doctor's requested from her if they could take her picture because her skin was so unbelievable at her age."
If you do not currently follow any daily skin care routine, do not try to add all of these beauty steps at once. Try starting with just one that you can link to an already established habit. For example, you could try putting your masque on before making the bed or dry brushing immediately after changing in to your night gown. Once the habit has developed, then you will be more assured of adding additional steps to the routine.From my own personal experience, I am confident you will be very happy to have established these skin care habits as the years roll by. The day definitely holds more promise when you can begin it with a smile toward your own reflection."Mirror, mirror on the wall, I can have no wrinkles after all!"
This Week Red Lotus Skin Care Salon poses the question:
To be Vegan or Not to be Vegan?
Vegan is a way of life, truly an art in learning to properly food combine for nutritional balance for the human body. Can a vegan lifestyle actually improve your health and skin condition?
Our Master Esthetician Patricia Barnett says: "I have seen many skin rashes and chronic problems such as bumps around the mouth or rashes disappear with a simple a diet shift."
For example dairy intolerance, removing dairy from a diet left a very frustrating skin condition in the dust. This client was so happy to have discovered this after years of unexplained skin breakouts.
However, we found this video very interesting for the subject of balance and the vegan way of life. A raw food author explains why she's no longer is vegan in this thought provoking video.
Chemical Peeling for Dark Skin tones.
She's a Professional, Bright, Ambitious, and very Beautiful young woman. I treated her for cystic acne, brown spots, uneven skin, and dry skin. Mallika had come to me almost ready to give up. She always had good skin but her skin started to darken over the past few years and these new skin breakouts were not at all normal at her age. This was so frustrating for her and she had tried so many things but the condition just kept getting worse. Mallika's skin type is genetically from India. Such beautiful, caramel skin under all the uneven layers covering up her feminine beauty. This type of condition is delicate to work with because there is a subtle balance of hydration and combined with exfoliation that needs to be considered all the time. Mallika went through about 8 months of chemical peels, acid peels, enzyme facials, and disciplined product routine's that I constantly re-evaluated to support her skin clearing from black heads, milia, and pimples. While the funicular heath was improving, which takes about 2 to 3 months, she also was getting darker in her brown spots on her face as the melanin rose to the surface and inevitably flaking away over a 6 to 8 month period. These type of skin peels and product routines are very complex and darker skin tones need a more advanced skin care specialist to be aware of the delicate balance this type of skin needs.
"I have worked with woman and men with darker skin tone and sensitivities my whole career as well as having this condition myself due to my half Italian heritage. I bring an education of diet, water and hormone understanding to skin care. I teach my clients about holistic skin care and raw food application inside and outside for masking. Please come and consult with me at Red Lotus Skin Care Salon in Portland." ~Patricia Barnett Master Esthetician.
