Summer Skin

Atlanta organic facial

From heat to humidity and all that extra time in the sun, summer presents unique skin care challenges. Here are three simple reminders to help you put your best face forward.

1)    SUNSCREEN

Seriously, we can’t say this enough: Always wear sunscreen. The number one, go-to beauty and wellness weapon is sunscreen. Be sure to wear at least SPF 30 on your face and body. When in doubt, reapply and while you’re at it, grab yourself an adorable sunhat. Luckily, sunscreen has come a long way. Gone are the days of battling with sticky, white paste.  Our favorite brand, COOLA smells yummy, goes on easy and best of all is 70% + certified organic.

2)    HYDRATE

Hydration is key to good health, and bonus: great skin. Higher temps and more time outside make it easier to dehydrate. During the summer, you should be upping your normal eight 8-ounce glasses of water to about ten to twelve glasses a day.

3)    MINIMIZE

Consider a pared-down makeup routine for the warmer months. Not only does it give you that fresh-faced summer vibe, but it lets your skin breathe and helps keep your pores from clogging.

And, drumroll, please… we have recently added a must-have summer treatment to our facial menu:

Intraceuticals Rejuvenate + Antioxidant Booster:

This oxygen treatment addresses visible puffiness and dark circles around the eye area, making it perfect for tired or travel-weary skin. Revitalizes and balances dull, stressed skin with exceptionally powerful natural antioxidants sourced from the Australian Rainforest. Clarifies and refines the appearance of skin prone to blemishes, visible pores, sun damage, uneven texture or deep wrinkles. Book this one for after your next beach trip!

4)    Stock their beauty bar: Grab a pretty basket and create a unique gift for mom.

5)    Gift Card: Can't decide? You can’t go wrong with the gift of choice! 

celebrate the season (right down to your skin)

We’ve (un)officially entered the holiday season. With weeks old smiling pumpkins beginning to wilt on stoops, new pumpkins waiting for Thanksgiving (already?) the sound of pumpkin flavored… anything, pumpkins are hard not to love. But all won’t wither away like our stoop sitting friends. For example, Sircuit’s Youth Accelerator Mask (Made Better) with pumpkin enzyme is here to stay.

Youth Accelerator is an all-natural, pumpkin enzyme peel that’s rich in anti-aging and skin perfecting nutrients.  Brimming with Beta Carotene and over 100 other nutrients, pumpkin ferment and lactic acid (skin softening exfoliant) removes dead skin cells and deeply cleans pores. It helps to minimize free radicals (that icky stuff in the air) that result in accelerated aging and clogged pores. It’s suitable for all skin types yet best for aging, oily, and/or those with hyperpigmentation.

It all lends to a healthier, more vibrant complexion and that’s what we’re all about. And with endless holiday parties (and photos opps) coming up, a revamped complexion couldn’t sound better. And, hey, Youth Accelerator is 100 times simpler than the holidays and all they bring. Use once a week for 10-15 minutes will do the trick! Ready to beam? We know it smells good but save that for the desserts. THIS intensive therapy targets the skin’s receptors yet boasts fewer calories better than that pumpkin spice latte you’re craving.

The pumpkin mask is also available in the Smart Peel Facial and appointments with Amy can be scheduled here.
