Goat’s Milk: The benefits

There are many amazing articles on the benefits of Goat’s Milk. eHow.com is an excellent resource for learning the benefits of Goat’s Milk Soap.

Ph Level:

Keeping a balanced Ph level is extremely important for our bodies to maintain a healthy weight with minimal, if any, issues. The Ph of Goat’s Milk soap  is like that of human skin, therefore, it helps combat invasions of unfriendly bacteria and chemicals harmful to our bodies.

Moisturizing:

There are many fats and natural creams found in Goat’s Milk. It’s smooth and creamy texture helps to create a barrier against the harsh environments we live in. It’s fantastic for moisture, and if you’re not an extremely dry person, you could possibly even substitute Goat’s Milk soap for your daily moisturizer.

Sensitive Skin:

Alcohol, Petroleum, and Preservatives are only a few of the additives that can be found in commercialized, mass-produced skin care products. These additives can help to irritate skin by furthering an already noticeable rash, or becoming the main cause of a new skin problem.

Eczema:

Eczema is a skin condition where red, itchy patches of skin are found on the body. It’s extremely dry, and many people use Goat’s Milk soap because of the nutrients found in natural goat’s milk. It reduces the itchiness caused by the Eczema.

Acne:

Goat’s Milk Soap helps acne and acne-prone skin because of all proteins power-packed into goat’s milk soap.

Exfoliation:

Alpha-Hydroxy acids found in goat’s milk are an amazing way to buff off dry skin, leaving a smooth and silky surface.

Take two quick tests to see if your eye wrinkles are dry or due to aging

June 05, 2011 By: Kimberly Category: Caring for your Skin, facial treatments, Guinot Skin Care products, Indulge Body Butter Moisturzing Bars

Are fine lines just a sign of dryness? see if dryness is magnifying your creases take a simple test: Apply a moisture Masque such as Guinot Hydra Mask and leave it on for the recommended time. When you rinse it off, does  your skin look fresher?  fuller? smoother? If it does look better than your skin was dehydrated. If it doesn’t look any different,your lines then are age related. I know that stinks but you can add some wrinkle fighting retinol, peptides or antioxidants into your routine. A wrinkle serum such as Guinot Age Logic Cellular Renewal is benefitial to helping to reduce the size of wrinkles and minimize them. Age Logic Cellular Eye Renewal Serum

Do you really have sensitive skin? More than 40% of Americans “believe” they do but not all of the self Doctoring

proves true. Dermatologists check for the condition in part by asking a series of question such as:

Does your skin typically turn red and blotchy when irritated?

Is it prone to allergic reactions?

Does your skin burn easily in the sun and windburn when outside?

does it flush from changes in temperatures both hot and cold?

is it dry, delicate and thin almost translucent? 

When you are at home, study your face in a magnifying mirror preferrably with a light so you can see close up. The pores of sensitive skin tend to look pink due to inflammation. This little clue was mentioned by Dr. Dennis Gross, MD,  a cosmetic dermatologist in New York City. If you do have sensitive skin, avoid gritty scrubs and harsh ingredients like alcohol, acids, and benzoly peroide; only use calming cleansers and ltoins containing natural anti-inflammatories adn antioxidants. I recommend the Indulge Body Butter lotions that are super light and almost good enough to eat. The ingredients are almost 100% natural safe to use on the face. These lotions and creams can only be purchased at Indulge Salon. For a location nearest year check out the locations tab at http://www.theindulgesalon.com.

The first rule of thumb is to stick with well known and established products. Get whatever samples you can. Some creams are very heavy and not suitable for use in hot and humid weather and you might not like the feel of them on your skin. Ask if you can use the product for 30 days with a money back guarantee if you don’t see results. Don’t believe the claim that you have to use a company’s entire product line to see any results. Most companies have made a fortune with “add-on” products like cleansers, toners, and serums. The moisturizer and the serum are usually the highest priced products. Buy only the moisturizer. You will get the best bang for your buck from the moisturizer as it is used over the entire face as opposed to the serum, which is generally only used on trouble spots such the area around the eyes and lips. If you find you like the moisturizer then try the cleanser, and so on. Read up on the product. There is a wealth of information on line and many sites such as consumerhealthdigest.com have already done a lot of the work for you by evaluating many wrinkle creams to see if they live up to their claims.

Ultimately, the best thing that you can do is take care of your skin from the inside out. We’re all stuck with whatever genetics we have but you can help yourself by not smoking, drinking lots of water and eating a healthy diet. Avoid the sun at all costs and use a moisturizer or foundation with SPF protection every day. Have a monthly hydrating facial. After your first several facials you’ll definitely notice an improvement in the appearance of your skin, no matter what wrinkle cream you use.

Indulge Body Butter Bars can be used on infants

May 23, 2011 By: Kimberly Category: diaper rash, Indulge Body Butter Moisturzing Bars

Hey a shout out to my readers. The Indulge Body Butter bars can be used on

infants that have diaper rash because it contains cocoa butter, shea butter and

the sweet almond oil. The reason it will help diaper rash is the cocoa butter will

have slip to it and the heated skin will melt the body butter bar. The unfragranced

would be even better to protect the skin and the product will cause the skin to have

a protectant instead of the harshness of a diaper or the urine that is so strong on

babies skin. Think about it. Plus its natural and you don't have the chemicals on

babies bottom. You can make it as thick or as coated as you want and not have

to worry about babies bottom. If your baby has a nut allergy then certainly do

not use this product or any of them for that matter so that you don't have additional

problems to contend with. I say go as natural as possible

Prevent, treat and defy the signs of aging hair and skin

April 16, 2011 By: Kimberly Category: facial treatments, Guinot Skin Care products, Indulge Body Butter Moisturzing Bars

At Indulge Salon we can’t stop the aging process but we certainly can slow it down. While we have to

realize that the type of lifestyle we lead can lend itself to speeding up the aging process. Late nights,

to many cheese fries, grease pit food, not enough quality rest, stress, anger, boyfriend issues, husband

issues, children, you name it, etc can have major impact on our biological age.

Age is more than a number. Understand that in biological terms getting older has consequences that

we really don’t like but must manage. Hair can thin out, grey hair gets wiry, dry, brittle and skin of

course will lose it firmness and pigmentation. Those little spots on the side of your face or they first

appear on your hands out of nowhere. There is hope for us, with some simple prevention steps we can

fight the signs of again and maintain a youthful appearance. I am stunned with the general attitude

of women expecting a quick fix to an aging process that has taken years to appear on the skin. If we

do preventative measures by using the proper skin care regime on a daily basis, the effects of aging

are minimized. A myth that if you use the same product that it works forever. That is an untruth.

Our body gets used to whatever we use on the skin and it will be minimized and not take in all the

nutrients it once did therefore our benefits are minimized. However; by using updated products

and customizing them for the season with serums that sink deep into the layers of the skin will

give more benefits and longer lasting. The cremes will will penetrate on the top layer to protect those

serums that had deeply penetrated. There are reasons for these amazing Guinot skin care products

we use that are time tested. If your skin care professional has not updated you and recommendations

it might be time to reinterview some skin care professionals for new and improved products. We are

always checking and comparing whether our products hold up against the newest “thing” on the market.

The “newest” thing is not always the best answer. Most importantly, make sure you always have a SPF

of 15 in your base skin care. This will help prevent hyperpigmentation (dark spots) fine lines, and

broken capillaries and skin cancer.

We recommend that women over 30 use a full regime such as antioxidant masks, anti-aging night

creams with a treatment serum underneath. These serums are like missles that seek out the dry spots

and they are programmed to zero in on increasing the collagen production as long as it has retenol in

the ingredients.

Egyptian Musk with Citrus is a hit!

April 07, 2011 By: Kimberly Category: Uncategorized

Clients are clamouring into the salon and repurchasing the new Egyptian Musk.

It comes in a creme’ pronounced Creme Brulee’. The lotion is really light as

our customers have described. You know I love feedback with any of our

products and services. Our clients have expressed that they don’t like the

“greasy” feel and you know that we don’t want the grease feel on our clothes

linens or anything else our skin comes in contact with. When you use the

Body Butter Bars, remember they are for the ultimate moisturization and then

if you feel that a little scent would enhance your perfume than that would

be a great addition plus the light moisture added. I’m so proud that we don’t

have the junk in our products like so many other moisturizing lines. I know

because I have been seeking out the best products to compare ours to ensure

that our clients are receiving the best result for their skin. If you would like

to share with me your favorite product and why. I would truly love to hear

what you have to say. Thanks for participating. Oh, by the way, we are having

a Sensory Experience April 20th. We will be doing blindfold tests that you

can participate in and feel a variety of textures of creams and lotions. Call

me personally if you are interested. The time is 7p-9p in Dover PA. Call me

participating will be awaiting you!

First of all, I just want to say THANK YOU to all of our loyal patrons. Without you, we never would be successful.

We are so excited to introduce the NEW Indulge Body butters that are purely original in our formulations that will eliminate the dry skin that is has been tightening our skin this winter. Prevent the dry cracks around the eyes and thickening of the soles by using our new cocoa butter body bar. Can you imagine less time in the bathroom by using a mositurzing bar like no other?

Apply right after you have cleansed your body, remain in the shower or bath with your body being warm and wet. Slide the body butter bar that fits snug into your palm over your neck, shoulders and the rest of your body and down over your heels. Then massage into your skin to get the full effects of the moisturizers in the bar that prevent anymore dryness lurking around the ankles. This body butter bar prevents that uncontrollable itching during the day if your skin has been dehydrated. Pat dry when you hop out of the shower onto a dry spot to prevent slipping. Dry itchy skin will go away.

Feel beautiful when you use our Indulge Body Butters. The glow that comes from using our cremes and lotions are spectacular. All of our products have the essence of Egyptian Musk with a hint of Citrus, Coconut like the beach, Citrus that blooms like sunshine,  Cocoa butter that enhances your natural body chemistry and lastly Unfragranced Ultra refined Cocoa Butter with Soy that gives off the most moisturization without the grease.
