Winter Skin Solutions

Winter Skin Solutions:


The cold and windy wintertime is ahead of us and that can mean dry, flaky, and irritated skin. The majority of clients who wish to hydrate their skin are not sure how and when to use a serum as opposed to a cream; the overwhelming amount of moisturizers on the market can cause much confusion. With the correct professional treatments and targeted homecare, winter skin can be glowing, moisturized, and healthy!


First of all, there are some wonderful treatments that go hand in hand with winter, when the sun is not as bright and days not as long. While collagen facials can hydrate and replenish moisture, there are some specific treatments that can be added to a spa’s menu for the winter season. Many clients suffer from hyperpigmentation, varicose veins, and unsightly hair, all of which require a series of treatments. The best time to start clients on a series of six is while we are still in the cold, winter months.

ILLUMIN Skin Brightening Kit


Proven ingredients in a non-irritating formula allow the skin to return to an even base complexion with no downtime!

KEY INGREDIENTS:

By targeting different steps in the melanin production process, Illumin creates a rapid brightening effect without the risks associated with hydroquinone.
Alpha-Arbutin 4%
Arbutin has long been a trusted, non-hydroquinone ingredient for pigmentation concerns because of its ability to inhihibit tyrosinase. Illumin utilizes a premium-grade Alpha-Arbutin formulated at the strongest recommended percentage for the highest quality, efficacy and safety.
Acetyl Glycly Beta-Alanine
This newly discovered brightening peptide is gaining recognition as a safe and effective option for skin care. It works by targeting key enzymes to interfere with the production of melanosomes and down regulates melanin synthesis.
HGC Complex
This unique complex utilizes Hydroxyapatite to deliver brightening agents (a tripeptide, Glutathione and an amino acid, Cysteine) into the skin. This allows the brightening agents to begin working after they have been absorbed into the skin for better results. Together, these ingredients cause inactivation of tyrosinase and quench free-radicals that can feed into the tyrosinase activation and melanin formation.
Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate (AAP)
A highly stable form of vitamin C, AAP provides all of the benefi ts of L-Ascorbic Acid with an extended release for optimum absorption. The antioxidant benefi ts of vitamin C are known to protect against UV damage and can help even out the complexion. The stimulation of collagen will help improve the overall youthful appearance of the skin for patient satisfaction.
