Microdermabrasion is a mechanical form of exfoliation that removes the uppermost layer of dead skin cells. For best results, it is recommended that you get a series of treatments and to use anti-aging topical products in conjunction. Microdermabrasion diminishes the appearance of lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and it helps to even out skin tone and texture. This type of treatment is not recommended for those with sensitive skin.
Microdermabrasion used to just be available in spas and dermatologists offices, now they are available for at-home use. PMD Personal Microderm Tool Kit is one of our favorites. This little device polishes and smoothes skin and allows you do a complete series of treatments in the comfort of your own home. PMD comes with two different grit attachments so you can choose the level of your exfoliation. Get ready to have radiant, flawless skin in a matter of weeks!
Photo therapy, is an application of light in specific wavelengths, red and blue. This type of therapy has been proven effective in treating Acne, Psoriasis, Eczema, wound healing, and aging. There is also no down time when using light therapy devices.
When treating acne, blue light therapy waves are absorbed into the skin and the P.acne bacteria absorbs the rays causing them to self-destruct. Once the acne causing bacteria is removed, inflammation and pustules clear up.
Red photo light therapy penetrates deeper into the skin and stimulates collagen to create new, healthier cells. In addition, red light therapy also slows down inflammation, what some dermatologists think causes wrinkling of the skin.

A new year means a new beginning, a time to make changes to become a better version of yourself. It’s a time when many people start a new diet or begin a new workout routine. We all make vows to ditch bad habits, take better care of ourselves, and be nicer to the people that we love. This is a great time to get tough with yourself and say, “It’s time to get serious! No more slacking off, falling into bad habits or not taking proper care of myself, inside and out!”
As a hairdresser in a salon, the frustration I hear the most often from clients is, “I can’t get my hair to look the way you do at home.” Have you ever struggled with this?
As we are beginning a new year and turning over a new leaf, as your “virtual stylist”, I’m going to give you a little bit of tough love. I ask you, “What are you doing to make yourself healthier, look better, feel better about yourself, and ensure a good hair day every day?”
Every stylist, artist, musician, technician, carpenter (you get the picture) knows the importance of high-performance tools that get the job done. No hairdresser worth their salt would trust your blowout to a $25 hair dryer they bought at the local drugstore, and you shouldn’t either. With almost 30 years of blowdrying under my belt, I cannot imagine doing my job without my tried-and-true T3 Featherweight Dryer. If you’ve never used a T3 Featherweight Dryer, you have to experience it to believe it. This wonder-tool has enhanced technology to style hair up to 75% faster than other leading dryers, is totally effortless to use (with a lightweight, ergonomic design), and is clinically proven to improve the health, body and shine of your hair every time you use it. Unlike regular dryers that use high heat and a hurricane-like airflow to blast water off the hair (which can dry fast but damages the cuticle and causes frizz and flyaways), T3 Featherweight Dryers use negative ions and far infrared energy to break apart water drops into smaller molecules which can be absorbed into the hair, then seal the cuticle for a smooth, shiny, frizz-free finish. My stylists (and all our clients) are so in love with the amazing results this tool delivers. I’m not just a spokesperson, but a user as well. I don’t know if my head shot will be attached to this blog, but if it is, check out my coif! You think that fantasy happens on its own?!
So, make yourself a little promise in 2013. “No more bad hair days”. Sounds like a great plan, doesn’t it?

T3 is a well-known and trusted brand in the industry for producing high quality styling tools which improve the condition of your hair, and help you to look your best. T3 uses tourmaline which is a gemstone that naturally produces negative ions to smooth and condition the hair follicle. This same technology is used in T3’s new line of beauty showerheads. The new beauty showerheads are the first shower filters that are clinically proven to improve the health of your hair while adding body and shine. They have a patented filtration technology that removes up to 95% of chlorine and other impurities in the water to condition and protect your hair and skin. This filtration is ideal for color-treated hair and extensions.
The T3 filters come in three different convenient options: The hand-held which attaches to the shower for mobility and ease, the source showerhead, and the inline which can attach to any existing shower head; as one-size-fits-all design for easy use. Anyone who washes their hair will benefit from using the source showerhead or hand-held source showerhead because chlorine and frequent washing will strip and damage your hair. The beauty shower actually transforms the chlorine by combining copper, zinc, and calcium into a larger element that the hair can’t absorb. The results have been amazing at reducing frizz by 64%, an increase in body by 47%, and a 28% increase in shine.
Aside from being a cutting edge hair tool, the rainfall of the shower is soothing and relaxing to the body and great for your skin. The T3 source shower filter showerhead has 8 different spray settings for a customized shower. It is recommended to change the filter about every 3-6 months for optimal results depending on which shower you decide to go with. The indicator light will indicate when you need to change the filter and are easily replaced. All three beauty showers come with a 2 year warranty and repair options for customers.

It never surprises me when I find a new product on SkinStore that I hadn’t seen before. Recently I found a couple of very useful travel preparedness and wellness items we offer by CHI. Many of us are very familiar with the CHI hair care products, but the CHI product line is versatile in its offerings and all of the products are very useful during the heavy travel season.
If you are traveling this holiday season the CHI Air Home Digital Luggage Scale may be your savior from airport luggage lines and fee’s. It seems that when I am taking a long trip, I pack for months of traveling not the days that I will actually be gone and this leads to a ridiculous degree of over packing. To avoid those irritating overweight luggage fee’s this handy CHI tool is perfect for an at home packing sanity check!
Ok, I’m going to the dark place…hotel stays and germs. Staying in a hotel can be an experience of its own even at the finest of places, or better yet, how about those stays at the in-laws in your husbands room which hasn’t changed since he left? Ok, to be fair perhaps I’m a germaphobe because I can’t stand to touch anything that I didn’t personally Lysol or bleach, but the solution could very well be the CHI Air Life Protable UV-C Light Sanitizing Wand, can I just say AMAZING! I want one now.
Perhaps like me, you are into the whole sanitation thing and when you look at your toothbrush that’s been sitting in or near the bathroom you start to ponder what germs could be on it? CHI has done it again! Yet another fabulous sanitizing tool called the CHI Air Life Portable UV-C Light Counter Toothbrush and Razor Sanitzer. This tool is designed to risk of bacterial infection and with its UV-C germicidal technology is kills 99% of germs in 5 minutes. I can think of many reasons why people would use this tool and am considering that it could be highly effective in environment where bacterial infection risk is critical to promoting a healthful environment and reduced risk of illness. If you just want to sanitize your toothbrush, there is a very travel friendly CHI Air Light UV-C Light Travel Toothbrush Sanitizer that could even make for a nice gift!
