Beauty Going Beyond Skin Deep - Part 1
 
For 2017, my resolution is to own my wellness! By this I mean to stop habitually following trend diets and yo-yo-ing with consistently making the right choices about taking good care of myself! In my quest for a healthier lifestyle, I will share with you what I discover and more importantly the impact such knowledge will have on your skin! This being the first post on beauty going beyond being skin deep is my Genesis!
 
I know that the skin being the largest organ of the body works inter-cellularly with all the other functions of our body therefore, living with a healthy mind, body and soul is the best way to get on track to a healthier you from the inside out. I attribute my skins success in maintaining a healthy appearance by what I know and, for 2017 I am going to let those who have achieved and maintained physical wellness teach me how to take better care of my BODY!
 
My journey for 2017 starts with the dynamic trio of Rachel, Nicole and Yolande. Rise Up and Live for 2017! Take ownership of your wellness and pursue the best version of you.
 
Until next time,
Marie.
 
 

 

 

 

 

Welcoming Board Certified Surgeon - Dr. Ajani Nugent to The Face Place Salon

November 18, 2016

 

The pursuit of Ageless Beauty treatments through modern minimally invasive Aesthetic enhancements couples well with the established standards of The Face Place Therapeutic Aesthetic services. As such, we are excited to introduce a new member to our aesthetic/wellness team! Dr.Ajani Nugent.
 
Dr. Nugent is a board certified surgeon, with particular expertise in head and neck and plastic surgery. His Otolaryngology (ENT/face) training was pursued at Emory University in Atlanta, after which he moved to Miami to pursue full body plastic and reconstructive surgery with the University of Miami. With extensive knowledge and experience of facial anatomy, aesthetics and interventions, he will bring this expertise to our clients. He also has experience in the management of patients who have had surgical/injectable mishaps; with this background he aims to achieve a "freshened" appearance without compromising natural aesthetics and more importantly patient safety. With neurotoxin (Botox) and dermal fillers (juvederm/restylane) in his armamentarium we look forward to bringing this experience to The Face Place.

 

Dr. Nugent will be in house on November 30th. Please send any inquiries or request for appointments to faceplacesalon@hotmail.com                        

 

The Secret to Caring for Oily Skin

November 3, 2016

 
The best kept secret about oily skin is that sebum (the oil your skin produces) is a natural preserver and provider of youth and a youthful glow!
Now that the cats out the bag, for those who have oily skin start doing good by yourself and take good care of it. One of the first things NOT to do is over wash or over scrub oily skin as this will cause it to produce more oil  which can lead to breakouts. What you should do is ensure your skin care regimen DOES NOT try to degrease your skin but effectively cleanse it without disrupting its Ph. Allowing the barrier function to work without being disrupted by harsh cleansing agents is essential in balancing the best care for oily skin.

 

A good regimen for oily skin includes at least three steps.
 
1 - Cleanse (Oil Defense Cleaser) 
2 - Tone (Oil Defense Toner)
3 - Protect (Oil Free Moisterizer with SPF 15)
 
Protection should include oil free moisturizers for day and evening. My number one suggestion in this category is the The Face Place Oil Free Moisturiser with SPF 15 or 20.
 
Until next time,
Marie.

 

Fall Into Fall

October 14, 2016

This entry was inspired by the needs my clients especially those who live overseas. It's Fall, and just as those autumn leaves are changing, so is your skin. So fall into Fall equipped with your ageless beauty and your targeted skin care regimen!
 
Seasonally beautiful skin means taking good care of your skin year round.  Adapting your home care regimen to meet the environment, winter, spring, summer or fall is essential in targeting the needs of your skin seasonally. The "treat" and "protect" steps in your regimen which are steps 3 and 5 in The Face Place's customized home care protocol (1-3 being Cleanse, Hydrate, Moisturize) is what is customized seasonally. 
 
• Treating your skin nourishes it and may need specific products like our Enzyme or Brightening Creams for use at night.
• Protecting your skin guards against environmental pollutants and the sun as found in our Green Tea Antioxidant Serum or Brightening SPF 50. 
 
 
 
BARE AS YOU DARE

October 5, 2016

For my first entry I decided to go "Bare As I Dare" to expose the naked truth about how taking good care of your skin equates to youth preservation! I have never had major skin issues and always practiced the basic regimen which like most only entailed cleansing my face and, because of the environment I am exposed to, protecting occasionally with sunblock.

Since turning 40+ my face was looking dull. No obvious signs of maturity just the furrows in my forehead and the appearance of 40+ years of life! I took matters into my hands and started practicing what I preach. I adopted a personalized regimen inclusive of Cleanse • Tone • Moisturize and Protect! In seven days I stopped wearing my foundation! Boastful of my skins appearance and the reverse action I have started to see in the youthful appearance of my skin I am now going to challenge everyone to take matters into their hands! Get a personalised skin care regimen and go as Bare As You Dare!
