Seasonal Transition Skin Care

0

So, we’re at that time of year, in between seasons, when the weather is confused and so is our skin.  I want to highlight a few products that are sure to keep your skin fresh and clear, and ready to transition into the season.

Pear & Poppyseed Microderm Polisher

This is a pretty amazing, somewhat aggressive exfoliant.  This is Eminence’s answer to microdermabrasion.  In fact, they compare the results of two swipes of a microderm machine with a manual exfoliation (at home) for 5-10 minutes.  Éminence Pear and Poppy Seed Microderm Polisher exfoliates and smoothes while protecting the complexion from damaging free radicals that cause premature aging. Its skin brightening formula polishes dull, dry skin for a rejuvenated appearance. All that’s left is a soft, supple complexion.

Ideal for most skin types, this microdermabrasion scrub is formulated with natural ingredients to polish the complexion. Poppy seeds and fine walnut gently exfoliate, apricot kernel oil softens and soothes skin, alfalfa extract nourishes and green tea, pear and apple extracts offer antioxidant protection from free radicals.

When your skin seems confused, or just blah, this is the product for you.  Slough away dead skin, and brighten things back up.  Ideal use is once a week.

Hungarian Herbal Mud Treatment

I am loving Hungarian Herbal Mud right now.  I just feel like my skin needs stimulated, but I also need some mud to help detoxify, and draw out impurities, oil, and toxins from my skin.  This spicy hot treatment is exactly what I need when my skin is confused, dull, and I have some stray blemishes here and there.

World-famous Hungarian thermal mud benefits all skin types by naturally detoxifying the skin, opening pores, eliminating toxins and increasing circulation. Cinnamon gives antibacterial properties, ivy is high in vitamin C, sage tones and heals, and paprika gives stimulation and natural antioxidants. Skin will be left soft, supple and glowing from within.

Lime Stimulating Masque

If blemishes aren’t your problem, but aging and hormonal skin are, this is the treatment for you.  Everyone can benefit from this stimulating, hormone-balancing treatment, but it’s especially beneficial if you want firmer, lifted skin and that rosy glow that comes from a great facial with some heat stimulation.

Revitalize and brighten your complexion with our Lime Stimulating Masque. The natural phytohormones and vitamins will leave your skin appearing rosy with increased circulation. Note that this active masque will leave a normal redness for up to two hours after treatment.

Strawberry Rhubarb Masque

My all-time favorite masque, and a favorite to sleep in as an overnight treatment.  This masque very gently exfoliates the skin with lactic acid, but also will plump up fine lines with hyaluronic acid.  I wake up and my skin is as smooth as a baby’s bottom….seriously.  This masque is beautiful for all skin types, as nearly everyone’s skin is dehydrated.

This rich and moisturizing mask revives the skin for a truly replenishing treatment. Strawberry extract exfoliates and penetrates pores to remove dirt and impurities and reveal new skin cells, while rhubarb tones and heals. The antioxidant-rich mask helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and hydrate the skin for a truly fresh face.

Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil

The Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil is an effective facial treatment comprised of a blend of results-oriented actives and ingredients that provide intense hydration and protection. Designed as a complementary product to the Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum, this facial oil fights the signs of aging, smooths wrinkles and hydrates deeply. For use with all skin types.

Increase collagen production and soothe skin with Eminence Rosehip Triple C + E Firming Oil. With its multiple botanical forms of vitamins C and E, including rosehip, jojoba and seabuckthorn oils, this non-greasy facial oil provides intense hydration while protecting skin against environmental stressors. The nourishing formula also helps to fight glycation and improve the appearance of redness and inflammation, making it ideal for sensitive skin. With regular use, you can diminish fine lines and wrinkles and achieve a healthy, youthful complexion.

Enjoy all these seasonal & transitional favorites.  These are all amazing to add to your Eminence collection.  You can request the use of any and all of these products when you come in for a customized Eminence facial at Riversong Spa.

Eminence Organic Skin Care has launched a new collection that is formulated to instantly lift, firm, tighten, and dramatically improve the appearance of puffy, tired eyes, sagging skin, and even the deepest expression lines.

Featuring firming and lifting hibiscus, botanical peptides, and a unique ice wine active, these products deliver results in minutes, and show long-lasting improvements over time.

This premium eye treatment has the most immediate and visible results for under-eye bags, dark circles and tired-looking eyes.  Use the cooling stainless steel rollerball applicator to massage elastin-preserving hibiscus into the areas around the eye, and watch  as an ice wine active instantly lifts and tightens.  Designed to visibly smooth wrinkles and reduce swelling, the natural peptides and caffeine combine forces to de-puff and minimize dark under eye circles.  Layer a hydrating eye cream over top to transform tired-looking eyes in a flash.

Instant firming and lifting for the neck an décolletage.  It’s one of the most tell-tale areas to show signs of aging, yet one of the most difficult to treat.  Rejuvenate and tighten the delicate neck and décolletage area with this blend of hibiscus and botanical hyaluronic acid to keep skin firm and rich in moisture.  The all-natural active ingredients in this potent neck cream give sagging skin a stimulating boost from paprika, and the tightening properties of edelweiss ensure the neck is smooth and instantly lifted.

As a natural alternative to lipofilling, Voluformworks on multiple layers of the skin to instantly fill lines from the inside out while stevia extract minimizes the stress-induced muscle reactions that cause wrinkles to form.  The innovative curved tip applicator helps this potent treatment to work like Mother Nature’s line eraser, plumping the skin with botanical peptides and delaying further formation and deepening of fine lines with camel oleacera extract.  Expect both immediate and long-lasting, more youthful results.

And here’s the adorable, limited edition Gift With Purchase…you get deluxe, age corrective travel sizes of Bamboo Firming Fluid AND Neroli Age Corrective Eye Serum.
