The LumiFacial LED Light Therapy consists of four pre programmed treatments for acne, pigmentation and sun damage, anti-aging and rosacea or redness. Each program uses frequencies and wavelengths from four different visible light spectrum to reach the layer where the damaged skin cells lie. The cells are re-energized and repaired. This activity stimulates rapid cellular turnover, smoothing and renewing the skin surface.
Giving my client a light peel by Murad called IP-5. It a multi acid peel with healing properties as well focusing on improving the health of your skin and its barrier function. There is a patented peptide blend as well as firming eye pads infused with collagen boosting, eye firming serum. This mask is also a great prepping peel for more aggressive procedures.
BENEFITS OF ICING - BY AMANDA ISEPPON (ME!)
Interested in a way to escape the summer heat while improving your skin? Look no more, we have a solution; icing. Massaging ice onto your face is the quickest way to restore your facial skin for a fresh look.
Summer heat can cause dehydration in your skin. Many skin conditions can be improved with Icing. By taking two minutes out of your day you can rehydrate your skin in an easy, natural process. This process is simple: take an ice cube and rub it around your face for two minutes and TA-DA the icing treatment is complete!
Icing can help with inflammation of the skin caused by acne. This concept is similar to when one injures themselves and uses ice to reduce the swelling caused from the injury. The same goes for a pimple. Icing reduces the redness, size of the pimple, and the overall visibility of the inflamed area. When you make this a constant part of your regimen, you can even prevent new pimples for even forming!
Reduction of your pore size is also a benefit that comes from icing. Reducing the size of your pores minimizes the production of excess oil which can cause clogged pores and lead to break outs. It also constricts the pores to make your face look smoother. The coldness of the ice when applied to your face improves blood circulation. An increase of blood circulation creates a healthy glow and also prevents wrinkles and premature aging.
Icing your face allows your make up to last longer throughout the day. This decreases oil build up during the day allowing your makeup to last longer. You can even save time in the mornings by skipping your makeup application process and embrace the natural glow caused by icing.
After a long day of work fix those tired eyes by soothing them with ice. You can even freeze cucumber with water to make a custom form of icing to really relax and soothe the delicate skin around your eyes.
Want to make this icing process exciting and interesting? You can freeze fruit and vegetable juice to add some flavor and provide your skin with immediate natural antioxidants to your ice. Various benefits come from topical application of fruits and vegetables. To name a few benefits; oranges help to brighten your face, apples help with oily skin, and pomegranate provides a natural rosy complexion.
Take a break from the summer heat and enjoy this skin healthy cool down to feel and look great!

COLLAGEN & FOOD - BY AMANDA ISEPPON (ME!)
The wrinkles! The fine lines! The sagging skin! Oh no! Time and gravity is an unbeatable combination when it comes to aging. Unfortunately with age comes the loss of elasticity and firmness in your skin. Don’t worry though, there is a certain protein called collagen, which makes up one fourth of the protein in your body. Collagen is easily attainable to help reduce what is thought to be the inevitable. This specific protein works with keratin to provide the skin with smoothness, elasticity and resilience.
Do you wake up in the mornings, look in the mirror and ask yourself, “Why was my hair so shiny and my skin so smooth when I was younger, and how do I get that back?” Well the answer is…when you’re young there is an abundance of collagen!
So, how do you replace this collagen lost over the years? Well you can run to Bloomingdales and purchase an overpriced anti-aging cream with inadequate ingredients… or you can choose the more promising, delicious option and go food-shopping to purchase natural foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals. Some vitamins include vitamin C, vitamin B3, copper, and dark chocolate!
Vitamin C is a water- soluble vitamin that the body does not store. Vitamin C helps assists in the growth and repair of broken tissues and is important for assisting in the production of free radicals. Some foods that contain vitamin C are watermelon, cooked leafy greens, winter squash, spinach, mango, green peppers, oranges and blueberries.
Vitamin B3 also enhances collagen production. Foods that are rich in this specific vitamin are tuna, peanuts, swordfish, beets, and sunflower seeds.
Copper is an antioxidant that assists our body in fighting off those pesky free radicals. Antioxidants create a healthy skin environment so it can create cellular turnover which will aid in producing collagen. Mushrooms, peanuts and clams are foods that are rich in copper.
And for everyone with that sweet tooth we have exciting news… dark chocolate boosts collagen because this delicious snack increases blood flow to the skin.
Of course, a healthy balanced diet is imperative as well, but with food intake rich in the vitamins and minerals listed above say goodbye to those wrinkles… out with the old and in with the new!

I loved this peel off brightening mask. It is super thick going on, almost like a tar. I only applied a very thin layer and expected it to be difficult to peel off. However, it was easy to peel it off. Post peeling, my face was slightly red (lower left-hand corner), but five minutes later, it was gone (large center pic).
Overall, I really liked this mask!
I've been inspired by teals and sea greens lately! Today I will make a look to match my bracelet and ring! Bracelet is turquoise from www.horsefeathersgifts.com called the "power of one" bracelet to remind us of the power and impact one person can make ???? pretty inspirational right! Stay tuned later today for a photo of my make up look though ;) in the mean time Josie Karan's argan oil is a great purse moisturizer that's natural and great for skin. It's youth in a bottle for your hands, and split ends.
A #natural look inspired by #Colbie Callait and my love for animals that she has as well. ???? I used a simple BB cream, applied with my fingers, to multi task and do everything in one for me, and a lip balm from Etsy that has a mild gloss effect but no stickiness. I also have on one layer of mascara and me and my furry friend are ready for a natural boho kind of day!
