Make a Great First Impression...Every Time!

We have all heard the old adage, "You never get a second chance to make a first impression." In both our personal and professional lives...we simply can't help it.... we make a judgment about people the very first time we meet them. We dissect their hair, skin, and overall appearance as we quietly decide if we want to be associated with this person.  Be are being dissected, as well. Keep reading for a few tips to make a great first impression every time!!

Wash your face!
For radiant skin, it's so important to wash your face morning and night, and follow up with a moisturizing night cream like Image's Hydrating Repair Crème or The Max Crème before you go to bed. Sleeping in your makeup is a recipe for dirty, dull skin. It's simple...just don't do it. Always wash your makeup completely off. Contact your esthetician so she can recommend the facial treatments you need and help you create the perfect skin care regimen for home.

Use a deep-cleansing mask
A deep-cleansing mask like Image's Total Resurfacing Masque (For combination skin) or Hydrating Enzyme Masque (for Dry/Dehydrated skin) is an important step in relieving your skin of impurities because it brings everything to the surface to be cleansed away. Look for ingredients like kaolin clay and charcoal, which absorb excess oil and debris, as well as exfoliators like salicylic and alpha hydroxyl acids.

Alter your diet
Toss out the sugars and starches! Instead, choose healthy foods like fruits and vegetables to snack on. One of the best ways to get your skin, hair, and body back in shape is to include berries, carrots, and green vegetables in your diet. The vitamins and minerals in these foods are crucial for glowing skin and hair, and a healthy body. And don't forget the water. A hydrated body is a beautiful body!

Get a workout in
Not only does exercise get you in tip top shape, but it also boosts circulation and opens pores, much like a good spa steaming. Try hitting a low-impact cardio machine or taking a brisk walk for 30 minutes each evening. You will be surprised how great you look and feel after a few weeks of sticking to a workout plan.

First impressions are so important! If you follow these simple steps, you will make a fabulous first impression every time!

Q. I spent a lot of time outdoors this summer. My skin is dry and hyper pigmented. I have a few brown spots on my face. What is the best way to undo some of the damage from being outside so much?
A. First, we want to create a game plan that includes both a home care regime and monthly treatments. Since resurfacing and repairing will be our focus, a series of microdermabrasions with chemical peels would be a great choice. When dealing with pigmentation, we want to incorporate a bleaching agent into your home care regimen as well as ingredients like glycolic and retinol. Most importantly, a daily SPF is a must. Here are a few recommendations to look for at the Spa:

- Image Total Facial Cleanser
- Total Skin Bleaching Serum or Cream
- Skin Authority Vitamin A
- HydroPeptide SPF 30
