VitaSkin – FIRM Skin

By jlinde  //  Aesthetics, Skin Care  // 

So you want beautiful, glowing skin without using products that are harmful to you, animals or the environment?  Look no further, here at FX Studios we use the all-organic, handmade skin care line Eminence straight from Hungary.

A snapshot of Eminence

Eminence creates their products using the pulp of fresh fruits, plants and exotic spices which makes them feel, look and smell fantastic! (You can actually see the chunks of fruits and vegetables in the products!) The plants are harvested from organic environments making the products the healthiest, most effective line around.  The Eminence ingredient farm is solar and wind powered, and all of the crops are planted and harvested manually as opposed to mechanically to reduce carbon dioxide.  The only preservation means used are honey traps and natural sprays such as eucalyptus and peppermint, which keep the bugs away.  After harvesting, the completed products are packaged in recycled materials, which in turn can be recycled at any local recycling site.

Enter VitaSkin – the newest release

The VitaSkin collection, which is the newest release brought to you by Eminence has taken a few of the main concerns most people have with their skin, and taylor made a line specifically for these conditions. In each set there is a cleanser, a masque, a moisturizer and an all-natural vitamin supplement.

  • Calm Skin – geared towards those with sensitive or rosacea skin types
  • Clear Skin – probiotic products for acne prone skin
  • Firm Skin – designed to address anti-aging concerns

The Firm Skin solution

Today I want to focus on the Firm Skin line, but stayed tune for for future postings about Calm and Clear Skin.  The Firm Skin collection contains juice from the super-antioxidant Acai berry, and hylaluronic acid which helps to maintain the water balance in the skin, as well as aids in plumping up fine lines in wrinkles.

Every personʼs body contains hyaluronidase, an enzyme that is produced once a person gets to be about 22 or 23 years old.  It is ultimately responsible for dehydrating and deteriorating organs and joint, which can lead to arthritis and other ailments. Hyaluronidase degrades hyaluronic acid, which works as a natural lubricants in many parts of the body, even down to the fluid in your eyes.

Hyaluronic acid is found practically everywhere in your body, therefore maintaining a good balance of it can benefit you in many ways, especially in the anti aging department.

The Eminence difference

Regular hyaluronic acid that you see in department stores and many skin care lines does not absorb in the way that it is intended due to a larger molecule size.  The hyaluronic acid used in Eminence products is taken from marshmallow, and has a 10 times smaller molecule size than regular, and therefore absorbs better and more quickly, and actually blocks the inevitably harmful hyaluronidase.  The hyaluronic acid, in addition the the juice from the Acai berry and the blueberry (which are both super foods, with strong antioxidants) make the firm skin products a great set for tightening, firming and skin cell regeneration, all while preventing dryness and dehydration.

If anti aging is your concern, Firm skin is the solution!  Not only does is work and feel great, but it alerts your senses with the tantalizing scents of rich berries, what more could you want?!

The Benefits of Getting a Facial at the Spa

Aesthetics FacialA facial is a special treat your skin.  In addition to helping you achieve a clear complexion and beautiful glow, a facial offers many additional benefits.  The face is always subject to environmental impurities such as the sun or even improper at-home regimes.  Facials offer you the opportunity to work with a professional skin care specialist who will analyze your skin, help you improve your complexion and show you how to take proper care of your skin.

Your skin care specialist will customize a treatment plan based on your skins individual needs. Typically a facial includes the following, but will be tailored to each person. Cleansing and exfoliation is performed which can help to unclog your pores. If needed, extractions may be carried out to help rid the skin of acne and minimize pore size.   The Esthetician will then help soften the skin by utilizing steam, hot moist towels, enzymes or other exfoliants.  She/he may also choose a mask to detoxify your skin and/or hydrate your skin.

After the facial has been completed, the Esthetician will take all of the information about the client’s skin and formulate an effective at-home regimen.  Our Service Providers take great pride in educating our guests so that they can feel confident that they are taking the best possible care of their skin.
