Our Skin Care Products- What’s the difference?

tour1

You may be thinking, “All your brands carry the same type of products, what is the difference?” If you are thinking this then you have come to the right place for an answer. If you are familiar with Andros Medspa then you know that we have four main skin care brands here. These include Naturopathica, One Love, Skin Ceuticals, and Skin Medica. To make it easier to understand the differences between the four, I will split them into two groups. First, we have the natural brands which include Naturopathica and One Love. The other group is made up of more chemical ingredients within the brand and that includes Skin Ceuticals and Skin Medica. Let me break them down further.

Naturopathica- This line of skin care products is made for people with sensitive skin. The people designing this brand knew that more than half the population had sensitive skin so they made a brand that catered to that group. This brand is made up of natural ingredients, hence the name “Naturopathica.”

One Love- If you are looking for a brand that is all natural and organic then One Love is perfect for you. Every ingredient added into the product is of the highest and most effective quality. Every product lives up to this standard.

Skin Ceuticals- This brand ‘s main goal is to give their customers a line of skin care that is backed by science. They have created a line that will penetrate your skin and give you optimal results.

Skin Medica- This line of skin care focuses on what the skin needs. In each product is a dose of vitamins such as vitamin E and C. These are absorbed by the skin and help to heal and repair. This line focuses on giving its customers healthier and better looking skin.

If you have more questions or want to try out our products, come visit us at Andros Medspa!

Our New RevitaLash and RevitaBrow!

tinting-circle

At Andros Medspa, we are always looking for the next best thing for our clients, and now we have it! With our new RevitaLash and RevitaBrow you have the option to enhance or grow back your brows and lashes. These products work to repair and prevent brittleness and breakage while also promoting thicker and stronger hair. If you are someone who is not satisfied with your brows/lashes here is how you can fix them!

Both RevitaLash and RevitaBrow have two parts. RevitaLash starts with a conditioner. You apply the conditioner once a day for 4-6 weeks. Once you start seeing results- which should be around 5 weeks- you can begin using the conditioner every other day. Keep in mind that one application a day is essential; using more than the daily amount will just waste your product. For best results, apply the conditioner at night after you have removed all make-up and cleansed your face. In the morning, you can apply the RevitaLash Mascara. This mascara is designed for volume and will help your eyelashes darken and curl.

RevitaBrow is quite similar in application. It starts with a conditioner that will help thicken your brow and keep your hair follicles growing. This product should be applied at night as well.For some people, using a brow gel for darkening brows is strange. However, if you have very light brows, the gel can be a lifesaver. You have several colors to choose from and they work similarly to a mascara. They darken your brows for the time being.

So, if you are someone who struggles with light, thin, or fading brows and lashes, come to Andros Medspa and we can tell you all about our new products!

Orange Just Isn’t Your Color

makeup-image

 

Are you someone who struggles to find the right cover up? Does the cover up you try on never match perfectly with your skin? Or, are you someone who is new to wearing cover up and need help figuring out your color?

If you said yes to any of these questions, you would benefit greatly from visiting Andros Medspa! At the spa we offer color matching as well as different types of concealer for different types of skin.Here at the spa, we know that no one has the same type or color of skin and because we know this we offer a huge range of possibilities for everyone!

If you are interested in color matching your make-up, our expert Estheticians can help you out with that. What these professionals do is take three colors that seem to match your skin tone well. They apply one strip of each on your skin and see which color disappears. The color that disappears into the skin is the one that matches your skin tone. By using this method, our Estheticians are sure to match you perfectly to your new make-up!

Also at the spa, we offer different types of concealer. These include powder,press,liquid, and cream. All the different types of concealer provide you with different types of coverage as well as matching your skin’s dryness or oiliness. If you are someone with very dry skin, you will benefit the most from using a powder concealer. If you are someone who wants a lot of coverage then cream concealer is the right choice.

For all of your make-up needs, Andros Medspa has the right products for you! Come down to the spa or call for a make-up consultation today!

How do Anti-Aging products really work?

Injectable-circle

We have all wondered, at one time or another, if the products we are buying actually work. The explanation of how each product works is given on a small bottle written in the most complex terms most of us can’t  even understand it! For skin care, there are many brands that put the term “anti-aging” on their bottle. But what does that actually mean? How does it work? Here is an explanation of how these products are making you look younger with each and every application!
Each product contains a series of different ingredients that make up your moisturizer, cleanser or serum. The effectiveness of the anti-aging product is if it contains specific ingredients. The most popular and effective ingredients are Retinol, Sunscreen, and Antioxidants.
How each work-
Retinol: This product is designed to speed up the process of cell turn over. Basically, it forces the skin to turn over faster which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This product also increases circulation within the body to make the skin look healthier!
Sunscreen: We all know what sunscreen does, but did you know that not protecting your skin from harmful rays can make you look older? Sun damage can cause wrinkling and blotchiness in your skin making your skin look unhealthy and old. By using a broad spectrum sunscreen, you are protecting your skin from any harmful UV rays.
Antioxidants: For people reading this and thinking that their skin is already too far gone from years of not protecting it, have no worries because Antioxidants are the fixers. When your skin collects free-radicals(molecules that form under the skin after sun damage) Antioxidants come to the rescue of your skin. They penetrate the skin and they turn harm-full free radicals into harmless compounds. By doing this, Antioxidants prevent and get rid of wrinkles and sun spots.
So next time you are out looking for an anti-aging product, make sure you buy one with one of these ingredients!

Do’s and Don’ts after your facial to make that glow last

therapeutic-facial

How often you get a facial depends on many different factors such as skin type, skin condition, age, budget, skin care goals, and even where you live. In general, our estheticians recommend getting at least one every month. Facials deeply cleanse your skin, free you of toxins, and will stimulate the exfoliation process. Your body will rapidly produce new and healthy cells on the surface, and collagen production will begin in the deeper layers. This encourages a slight thickening and tightening of the skin which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The process will also open up your pores, allowing our products to penetrate deep into your skin for maximum results. When you leave the spa you will feel rejuvenated and your skin will have a healthy glow, but how can you make this look last?

Here are our Do’s and Don’ts for post facial care:

Do’s

  • DO be gentle – Your skin may be sensitive after your facial, so it is important to be gentle.
  • DO let our estheticians guide you about your at-home skincare routine – There are so many skincare products out there that it seems impossible at times to find the right one for you, but you don’t have to worry! We will create a customized beauty regiment just for you, which is extremely important because what you put on your face 60 times a month has a profound effect on your skin’s health.
  • DO eat healthy – Immediately after your facial, new skin cells will grow rapidly, and it is important to fuel that growth with proper nourishment. Lemon water, green juices, smoothies and plenty of fresh vegetables will help the body fight inflammation, which is the root cause of many skin conditions like acne.
  • DO stay out of the sun – Your skin may be sensitive to the sun’s harsh rays. If you have to be outside then wear a hat or use an umbrella along with sunscreen.
  • DO get some rest – Make sure that you get plenty of sleep. Your body repairs itself at night so getting plenty of sleep will help promote healthy skin cell growth.
  • DO wash your pillow case – Your pillow case collects dead skin cells, sweat, and oil that will clog up your pores and ruin your post-facial flawlessness (You might as well wash your sheets while you’re at it).
  • DO drink plenty of water – You should really always be drinking water throughout the day, but it is especially important after a facial. Drinking 8-12 glasses each day will promote proper cell function and growth.
  • DO contact your esthetician if you have any questions or unexpected reactions – Our estheticians are trained professionals and will be able to guide you on the best course of action.

Don’ts

  • Don’t wash or scrub your face – Let your skin absorb all of our products. Washing it will strip away all of the goodness. Depending on your treatment you may need to wait up to 72 hours before resuming your normal routine. Your esthetician will give you any special post care instructions.
  • Don’t cause excessive sweating – Avoid any activity that could cause excessive sweating which could clog your pores for 24 hours post treatment.
  • Don’t use gym/studio workout towels on your face – These towels are usually laundered with harsh detergents and sometimes bleach that will irritate your pores, especially when you have just had a facial and have newly-exfoliated skin.
  • Don’t pick at your skin – Picking is never good, but especially post treatment, picking can damage the new healthy skin cells and possibly cause scarring.
  • Don’t wear makeup for 24 hours – Our makeup products are safe and free of toxic ingredients, but they can still keep you from getting the full benefits of a facial. It is best to wait at least a day before wearing any makeup after certain treatments.

Facials help to enhance, rejuvenate and create your beauty and are essential for skin health and wellness. Give us a call at 651-222-3127 or schedule an appointment online for your facial with one of our expert estheticians.

Eat Your Sunscreen

sun

We are often asked “what is the best sunscreen?” The answer to this question isn’t as simple as slathering on a sunscreen. More and more research shows that sunscreen alone cannot guarantee your skin is safe from UV damage, which is why—besides using your favorite broad-spectrum sunscreen—it is best to both eat antioxidantsand apply them topically.

First, what are antioxidants? They are vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that protect and repair cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals generated by the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays are the main cause of sun damage–like burns, premature aging, age spots–and certain skin cancers. Antioxidants are highly effective and a wonderful addition to your daily protective regime–both inside and out. Antioxidants are not substitutes for sunscreen; however, when used in combination with a broad-spectrum sunscreen, eating fresh, delicious antioxidant filled foods and topically applying antioxidant rich products can boost sunscreen’s effects. Win-win.

The three major antioxidant vitamins are beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E. You’ll find them in colorful fruits and vegetables, especially those with green, purple, blue, red, orange, and yellow hues. Plants use color like we wear sunglasses or sunscreen– the sun’s rays can damage plant’s delicate skin too and color is nature’s sunscreen. The more colorful the plant, the higher its protection from sun’s rays. When we eat plenty of these colorful foods, the dietary antioxidants can help to reduce the risk of external sun damage. We have included below some of our favorite antioxidant rich foods.

Beta-carotene and other carotenoids: Apricots, asparagus, broccoli, cantaloupe, carrots, green peppers, kale, mangoes, turnip and collard greens, nectarines, peaches, pink grapefruit, spinach, sweet potato, tangerines, tomatoes. Let’s not forget watermelon–aka the perfect summertime fruit.

Vitamin C: Berries, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cantaloupe, cauliflower, grapefruit, honeydew, kale, kiwi, mangoes, nectarines, orange, papaya, red, green or yellow peppers, snow peas, sweet potato, strawberries, and tomatoes

Vitamin E: Broccoli, carrots, chard, mustard and turnip greens, mangoes, nuts, papaya, red peppers, spinach, and sunflower seeds

Other antioxidants that may help boost skin’s immunity against harmful rays include lycopene and zeaxanthin. If you feel you need another boost of antioxidants, dark chocolate is a great source of another worker-bee in the antioxidants family– catechins, which absorb UV light, protecting the skin while making it look younger. Ah-ha, an excuse to eat chocolate. I mean, did you even need another one?

Combine SPF and a diet that is rich in antioxidants with a daily dose of any of the following formulas for multiple layers of protection. We carry Vitamin C Brightening Facial Serum from One Love Organics, C E Ferulic from Skinceuticals, Vitamin C + E Complex from Skin Medica, and featured in our summer essentials we have Vitamin C15 Wrinkle Repair Serum from Naturopathica.
