Skin Brightening Serums with Double Rewards

LITTLE TREATMENTS = BIG CHANGES

GET AHEAD OF WINTER SKIN AND SAVE 20%!
SCIENCE MEETS NATURE IN THESE HIGHLY ACTIVE SERUMS AND GELS
DESIGNED TO IMPROVE YOUR SKIN TONE, TEXTURE, AND TOTAL HEALTH

Absorb Mattifying Serum Real deal oil control for a shine-free face all day. Look glowy, not shiny. This lightweight treatment is powered by oil-controlling botanicals like burnet and cinnamon that absorb excess shine and balance sebum production. A concentrated dose of sodium hyaluronate keeps skin moisturized, no oil necessary. Wear under makeup or alone to keep your skin fresh and matte all day.

 

What it does:
• Controls excess oil production
• Gives skin a fresh, matte look
• Hydrates with the oil-free moisturizing properties of hyaluronic acid

Power Peel Refining Glycolic Acid Gel  Brighter skin is just below the surface. Reveal your radiance with this gradual serum peel. This carefully balanced cocktail of glycolic acid and soothing aloe vera dissolves dead cell build-up, uncovering the fresh and glowing skin below. Used regularly, it helps refine uneven skin texture and kick-start cell turnover, bringing dull skin back to life.

What it does:
• Dissolves dead skin and build-up
• Reveals brighter, fresher, more radiant skin
• Smooths, softens, and refines skin texture

U Turn Firming Peptide Serum Turn the age train around. Youthful skin doesn’t have to be a thing of the past with this peptide packed, age-fighting serum. Infused with a combo of firming peptides, age delaying vitamin C, and nourishing flax extract, U Turn Peptide Serum helps soften the appearance of lines while activating cell turnover for a firmer, smoother look.

What it does:
• Softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Helps protect skin against aging factors
• Gives skin a firmer, smoother look

C Power Antioxidant Vitamin C Serum This super-powered serum does it all—brightens, fights aging, gently exfoliates, and protects. The key to its multi-tasking power lies in a potent complex of antioxidant vitamin C and lactic acid, which work at the molecular level to give skin a firmer, brighter look. L-tyrosine, an essential amino acid, joins forces with vitamin B5 to soften the look of fine lines.

What it does:
• Brightens the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone
• Delivers age-fighting antioxidants to the skin
• Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Hydrate Super Moisture Serum A cool sip of water for thirsty skin. This lightweight gel serum is enriched with two types of sodium hyaluronate—powerful moisturizers that can hold 5,000 times their weight in water—to quench dryness and give skin a plump and juicy look. Sodium PCA and green tea prevent dehydration and nourish skin with antioxidant protection.

What it does:
• Deeply infuses the skin with quenching moisture
• Supports healthy collagen and elastin
• Softens, smooths, and gives skin a plumper appearance

Cleansing Oils and Herbal Toners – August Product Feature

think deep

The best time to try or buy at Star Brows is when a product is the Product Feature because you’ll get Rewards and save 20%!

Cleansing Oils go deeper than milks or gels. They bond with your skin’s natural oils, drawing out more dirt, make-up and pollutants than your foaming gel or milk cleanser ever could. Combined with their specially designed herbal toners, they become water soluble to ultra cleanse and exfoliate. It’s also ideal for eye makeup removal and conditioning your lashes. This process prepares your skin for maximum absorption of serums, creams and masks. Cleansing Oils and Herbal Toners enable your post-cleanse products to penetrate deeper and deliver active ingredients where they’re most effective.

How to use:

STEP 1: On dry skin with dry hands, massage 3 pumps of the Cleansing Oil for your skin-type onto face, neck and chest. Use small circles to massage the skin thoroughly for added benefit.

STEP 2: Massage 3 pumps of Herbal Toner over Cleansing Oil. Add cool water gradually to emulsify and turn milky white. Rinse until you no longer feel the cleansing solution.

Here is Lori Nestore from Eva’s Esthetics talking about Cleansing Oils and Herbal Toners and demonstrating their use.

Essential Oils – June Product Feature

RewardsThis month’s Product Feature lineup is Tu’el Botanical Boosters. As anyone who has had a service at Star Brows knows, we use essential oils in every single service we do! They are truly essential to the spa experience, and I believe irreplaceable in a personal-care routine. xo Linda

An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aromatic compounds from plants. My favorite application is for the facial skin, and there is one for every skin type and condition.

The oils have many benefits, and each oil has different attributes. Our collection is targeted to skin types, but they are also relaxing, detoxifying, sleep-inducing, and generally tonic for the entire body. Once applied to the facial skin, they actually enter the bloodstream and go to work throughout the body.

The Tu’el lineup of essential oil synergy blends for each skin type are explained in detail heres:

Anti Aging Botanical Booster

Designed for mature skin that has lost its vitality, this exclusive essential oil blend will leave you with a more youthful appearance. Avocado and vetiver oils are deeply hydrating and rejuvenating. Carrot seed combats the appearance of wrinkles and lines, while brightening dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Cypress and rosewood target your pores and skin cells in order to clarify, tone and regenerate tissue for younger looking skin. Essential moisture will be restored, elasticity improved and collagen production boosted.

Reactive Skin Botanical Booster

Designed for reactive and sensitive skin, this formula’s essential oil blend will reduce inflammation, calm, regenerate and improve the overall appearance of your complexion. The efficacious but gentle combination of roman chamomile, lavender and frankincense soothes, balances, conditions and heals. Deliver rejuvenating, toning and conditioning natural botanicals with this deeply replenishing and easy to absorb booster.

Acne Skin Botanical Booster

Designed for acne prone skin, this exclusive essential oil blend heals breakouts, reduces scarring, evens skin tone, clears pore congestion and prevents future blemishes. Tighten pores, refine skin’s texture and mitigate oil production with naturally potent astringents clary sage and lemon oil. Tea tree oil eliminates acne causing bacteria and toxins while soothing inflammation and riding your complexion of pink. Spike lavender and palma rosa keep misbehaving skin in check by balancing, purifying and supporting cell rejuvenation.

Dry Skin Botanical Booster

Designed for dry skin that has lost its youthful suppleness, this formula’s essential oil blend will restore hydration and leave your skin smoother, softer and revitalized. Rosemary, geranium and bergamot mint work together to calm, condition and stimulate your skin’s micro-circulation in order to protect and treat dry skin in the short and long term. The antioxidant complex of lavender, grape seed and rose oils have antibacterial and antiseptic properties to keep skin cleansed, while delivering high doses of anti-aging power.

Combo/Oily Botanical Booster

Designed for combination or oily skin, this formula’s essential oil blend will rein in excess oil production, minimize the appearance of pores and balance out-of-whack complexions. Bergamot, ylang ylang and palma rosa oils are the core of this booster’s balancing power and deliver hydration and control where needed. The synergistic combination of conditioning German chamomile and pore refining cypress meets all of your skin’s needs. Lemon grass rounds out our proprietary formula with potent anti-inflammatory properties that leave your skin refreshed, soothed and toned.

January/February 2014 Product Feature

sodium-hyaluronateHi, it’s Kelli! I’m not usually a New Year’s resolutionist, but as my schedule and life in general get busier and busier I have developed a new appreciation for simplicity and have vowed to make 2014 as easy as possible.

How does this apply to skincare? If you’re like me, you want gorgeous skin but don’t want a million steps, or a big routine. So the Product Feature(s) this month contain  a special ingredient the Brow Boss has relied on for years and recommends to every one of her clients. It’s called sodium hyaluronate or hyaluronic acid (HA). It’s an ingredient that  I have listened to her explain the benefits of many times and have grown very fond of myself, having seen amazing outcomes first-hand.

So keeping it simple – add a product with HA to your AM/PM routine. We can recommend the one that will fit into your current routine seamlessly. And this month you’ll get double Rewards!

The Science Part

Linda explains: “This powerful ingredient (HA) has the ability to hold on to moisture in the skin (over 1,000 times its weight). We know moisturized, hydrated skin looks and feels more youthful. HA is actually found in the skin’s cell wall naturally and functions to repair, protect, and boost elasticity and firmness in the skin. It is actually a part of the skin’s connective tissue.

“Think of Sodium Hyaluronte like those Sham Wow towels you see on late night infomercials – it’s able to soak up tons of excess water and magically trap it inside. By topically adding sodium hyaluronate you are able to transform the dermis layer of your skin into a super-sponge for your face.

“You see, as we age UV radiation and other skin stressors like dis-ease (in body or mind) causes the skin to lose elastin and collagen (the breakdown of HA), which in turn increases interstitial (cell-wall) water loss. Hence the skin ceases to be a good barrier (keeper inner/keeper outer).”

As an added bonus, when HA is paired with OSEA’s Undaria Algae, the enzymes that break down collagen and elastin are blocked and HA becomes even more beneficial.

I’ve already enjoyed how easy and beneficial adding  products with HA to my skincare routine has been, and how successful my new year’s resolution has started off!

Here is a full list of the products we carry in the spa that contain HA:

Tu’el: Hydrate, Absorb, Eye Impact, Triple Splash BodyTonic, C Power, Daily Protect Oil Free SPF

OSEA: White, Red, & Black Algae Masks, Brightening Serum, Gigartina Beauty Bath

High Frequency Facials

New at Star Brows! Star Brows Fashion Shoot resized-199

Recently we purchased a new skincare-treatment machine that has the capability to perform multiple functions. While we focus primarily on European-style facials (relaxing, hands-on, rather than machine-oriented), we value results too! Below is an explanation of some of the features and benefits you’ll experience during your next facial.

High frequency treatments are a safe, gentle, non-invasive means to achieve acne clarification and skin rejuvenation.  The gentle oscillating, oxygenating power of low level electrical current has been shown to enhance circulation, increase collagen and elastin production, eliminate toxins and acne-causing bacteria, encourage lymphatic drainage, exfoliate dead skin cells, and assist with improved skincare product performance and absorption.

High frequency current stimulation forces an infusion of enriched oxygen molecules into the skin, thus cleansing, massaging, stimulating blood flow, dilating superficial blood vessels, re-texturizing, and increasing lymphatic drainage. This results in an improvement in blood circulation and cell renewal.  Increased production levels of collagen and elastin soften and smooth away wrinkles, reduce pore size, improve overall skin texture,  and promote a pleasant sense of well-being.

The use of low level electrical current also promotes a cleansing, antibacterial action that helps eliminate and prevent the onset of acne.  The skin is left feeling energized, rosy, firm, refreshed, and noticeably softer – even after just one treatment.  The enriched oxygen molecules produced by the high frequency machine are safe and are also effective in treating almost any skin lesion from acne to scars.

Benefits:

  • Gentle, non-invasive resurfacing procedure
  • Effective treatment for acne, enlarged pores, and scarring
  • Consistent treatments can provide a lasting long-term, healthy-aging alternative to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin

The following precautions should be taken:

1. Avoid using AHA or BHA products and unprotected sun exposure at least three days before and after your treatment.

2. Do not schedule a high frequency facial if any of the following are present: pregnancy, cuts and abrasions, diabetes, heart disease or pacemaker, metal pins or plates, dental braces, sunburn, phlebitis or thrombosis, vascular conditions, or any other condition for which you are under a physician’s care.
