Chemical peels are the modern day gold standard to great skin care.
But what are they exactly? Chemicals on your face? No, they are not harsh synthetic ingredients applied to your delicate skin to ‘burn it off’. They don’t even need to hurt if done properly.
Chemical peels are treatments using natural ingredients, like extracts from sugar, willow bark, almond, milk, mushrooms, etc. When these extracts are placed on your skin a reaction occurs called a proteolitic enzyme decomposition. This is when the dead skin is removed from the living skin. The “acids” digest and dissolve the dead proteins and oils that bind the dead skin to the living skin. Once the dead skin is removed…this process stimulates your body to make new skin cells!
There are two types of peels that you may have heard of. An Alpha and a Beta … Read More »
What an amazing summer filled with so many sunshiny filled days. If you are anything like me, you spent many long endless days at the beach or just soaking up the sunshine and fresh mountain air here in the Mount Washington Valley. All that said…your skin may be in need of a little attention. If you notice that sun damage, in the form of brown spots, creeping out on the face, chest, or anywhere; an IPL treatment is such an effective treatment.
Brown Spots (Sun Damage)
Sun damage can be treated safely and easily with the use of new IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology. Where before you were forced to use expensive bleaching creams which were time consuming and often yielded disappointing results, now IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments can often remove hyper-pigmented spots in just one treatment!
Prices vary, depending on area … Read More »

Alright….you know how nuts we are about Hylunia products, but this Beyond Complex C serum, is the BOMB! We recently had an in house training from the professionals at Hylunia and I learned that this is Hylunia’s number 1 seller and most sought after product. Hmmm, I thought, I love all of their other products, and I’m not using their number 1 seller? I saw incredible before/after pictures and heard the claims that this one of a kind breakthrough formula stimulates cell renewal, … Read More »

Health benefits of UVB and Vitamin D
Most people have heard of Vitamin D and realize it’s naturally produced in the body when exposed to sunlight. However few people understand how critical vitamin D is to good health.
For decades now, you have been warned that the sun is dangerous. At best, you have been told it will wrinkle your skin and age you prematurely. At worst – and it is a very grim worst case scenario indeed – you have been told you will greatly accelerate your risk of cancer. You have been told that on a sunny day, you need to slather yourself with sunscreen, or a grim fate awaits you.
Sunbathing is now portrayed as a social evil. It is considered evidence of poor health judgement, an activity that is comparable to smoking cigarettes and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol. … Read More »
