4 Reasons why Massage is the Perfect Gift

boebspa2

Some people think of massage as a luxury, a pampering experience… they are not wrong but there is much more to Massage Therapy. Massage is effective for stress relief, pain alleviation and relaxation. It is beneficial for people living with conditions including fibromyalgia and arthritis. Massage is appropriate for just about anyone- healthy adults, seniors, pregnant women and athletes.*

The gift of massage is appreciated by those who are regular clients and an opportunity for those who are new to massage to experience relief they may have needed for a long time.

1. The Gift of Stress Relief
The holidays are filled with family, friends, fun, food and gifts. For some all those wonderful things can bring stress, anxiety and exhaustion. Massage Therapy calms the nervous system and provides an oasis of respite from the holiday frenzy.

2. The Gift of Pain Removal
From hanging the lights, putting up the tree and digging through boxes in the attic to find Hanukkah candles, decorating can cause strain, sprain and pain. A massage addresses pain and stiffness by increasing circulation, improving flexibility, and releasing knots and tight spots from muscles.boebspa

3. The Gift of Raised Spirits
The holidays aren’t jolly for everyone; family conflict, feelings of grief and other mood-stressors can arise, even in the midst of celebration. Massage is a mood booster. The release of the feel-good hormone, oxytocin, is increased during massage, as is the release of serotonin and dopamine.

4. The Gift of Ease
Give yourself the gift of a super-simple present purchase. You can order a print-at-home/email gift certificate here. You may also choose to order online and pick up your gift at Changes. The pick-up option allows you to take advantage of our Holiday Specials.

There are many types of Massage, learn more…
*Always check with your doctor before your massage appointment if you are pregnant or have a medical condition.

Ageless Beauty

Make 2016 Your Year of Ageless Beautyssarandon

Here we are in August and we are near 2/3 of the way through the year 2016.  Your personal odometer either has or will soon be clicking over another year.   Let me wax poetic as I ask, “What is age but a number when it comes to beauty? “  Accord to award winning beauty blogger Fiona Klonarides, 2016 is the Year of Ageless Beauty.   Mature faces are gracing the ads for many major beauty campaigns.  Susan Sarandon, the face of L’Oreal Paris makes sixty nine years look youthful.  And also, who can refute the ageless beauty of Sophia Lauren for Dolce and Gabbana.   I excitedly agree with Klonarides when she says that the older woman has gone from invisible to iconic.

Some changes of aging are inevitable.   Others are not and necessitate diligently following skincare regime.  Ageless beauty is not necessarily effortless beauty.

Believe in the Super Natural –  When it comes to anti-aging products, botanicals are the super naturals in the skincare arena.

cosmedix-botanicalsWhat’s Old is New Again – Botanicals have been in use since the beginning of time, from therapeutic and medicinal purposes to cosmetic and skincare use Various plants used in medical treatments in ancient civilizations are still used today in cleansers, moisturizers, astringents and other skin care products to support the health, texture, and integrity of the skin.

What’s Old is Young Again – Even if you have been a sun goddess in the past, with all the breakthroughs in facial treatments, skincare products and cosmetics it is almost possible to turn back the clock on aging.

Our Team Recommendations for Ageless Beauty – I polled our Radianceknowledgeable Esthetics Experts for their suggestions for ageless beauty.  Without exception these lovely ladies agreed that staying uber-hydrated, eating a healthy diet and a customized skincare routine that includes a suncreen were the most important factors in attaining ageless beauty.  They also agreed that Cosmedix Radiance is an Ageless Beauty favorite and includes a plethora of super natural ingredients to rejuvenate damaged, maturing and menopausal skin.

Don’t be Invisible, Be Iconic –Get going, get educated. Update your beauty regime and remember that ageless beauty is its own reward.  Here’s to a beautiful last 1/3 of 2016.  May your life be beautiful in every sense of the word!

4 Rules for Great Skin

Skin care can be confusing! Here are four simple steps that everyone should follow to obtain youthful skin:

1. Apply sunscreen every morning.Reflect1

The sun’s ultraviolet rays damage and age our skin more than any other external factor. Even on cloudy days, up to 80 percent of the sun’s UV radiation penetrates the clouds. For this reason, applying sunscreen every morning is a must. We recommend a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, like our Reflect from CosMedix, which blocks 97 percent of the sun’s damaging rays. This is also the recommendation of the American Academy of Dermatology.

2. Apply an antioxidant serum every morning.

Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can damage the collagen and elastin in our skin. Free radicals are created by normal body processes but can also attack our skin via pollution, UV radiation, and even eating processed foods. Applying an antioxidant serum every morning is a key step in fighting off free radicals.

The most popular antioxidant is vitamin C. We highly recommend Pure C from CosMedix, which is so easy to incorporate into your daily routine. Mix the Pure C crystals (a few shakes) with any of your favorite CosMedix products and apply to your face. When CosMedix Pure C crystals are mixed with our professional custom mask or one of our serums, the crystals dissolve and then deliver 100% active, un-oxidized vitamin C to the skin.

3. Exfoliate your skin two to three times per week.11075_10153214058170864_1245589518812802866_n

When we’re young our skin turns over every six to eight weeks. This rapid turnover of skin cells causes our skin to look vibrant, smooth, and wrinkle-free. As we get older, this process slows down. The old, dead skin cells clump and accumulate on the surface, causing our skin to look drier, feel rougher, and have more wrinkles.

Exfoliating our skin removes this upper layer of dead skin cells, causing our skin to look more vibrant, often immediately. In addition, exfoliating sends a chemical signal to the deeper layer of skin cells to turn over more quickly, getting our skin closer to that six- to eight-week turnover process that we desire. You don’t need to exfoliate every day; two to three times per week will do. If you have sensitive skin, just once a week is sufficient.

We love CosMedix Purity Detox Scrub, A gentle physical exfoliator combined with Salicylic Acid that removes built-up dead skin cells and dissolves impurities for visible clarity and brilliance. It also acts as a detoxification system for cellular debris and residue, which will reveals smoother, brighter-looking skin while reducing the appearance of visible pores and imperfections.

  1. Apply an anti-aging cream at night.

This is the key step to reversing the aging of our skin. Like the rest of our body, our skin rejuvenates itself at night. This is the time when anti-aging creams can have an uninterrupted six to eight hours to do their thing.

We recommend booking a complimentary consultation with one of our Esthetician’s to determine which Serum is best for your skin.

Skin care can be confusing, but it doesn’t have to be. If you follow these four simple steps, you can’t go wrong. If you want to kick up your regimen come see one of our talented Esthetician’s to create a customized skincare plan!
