Skin Care Services for the Oviedo and Winter Springs Area
Why Skin Care? Since the skin is our largest organ, doesn’t it make sense to pay attention and care for it properly? Our bodies are always sending us signals of distress. We just need to listen. For example, if your skin is inflamed, it may reflect internal inflammation or toxicity. At Sacred Moments Massage & Healing Center, we believe in the importance of forming a trusting relationship with a Licensed Skin Care Professional: A professional who knows & understands YOUR skin.
Since your skin absorbs whatever you put on it, we also strongly feel it is important to carefully consider the skin and body care products you use.
From Your Skin to Your Blood
Did you know, much of what we place on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream? Just think about nicotine, birth control & pain medication patches. In 2005, the Environmental Working Group published a combination of two studies that found toxic chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of newborn babies born in the U.S. in the fall of 2004. YIKES! Did you also know, government regulations allow virtually any ingredient to be used in the manufacture of products that we use daily on our skin, hair, and nails, and in the water we drink? Alarming, right?
The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) establishes the regulations and standards in the United States regarding the manufacture of drugs & food. The problem is that they do not pay as much attention to skin care and make-up as they should, thereby allowing some very harmful chemicals to be used in creating almost every product that is mass marketed.
Some of the harmful ingredients that are used frequently in manufacturing the most common non-organic skin care and make-up items include:
- Ammonium Laureth Sulfate
- Alcohol, Isopropyl (SD-40)
- Polyethylene Glycol
- Polyethylene eth-
Keep in mind, most of these compounds are absorbed easily by the skin, yet the body has no way of ridding itself of them. The toxins remain in your intestine and eventually get spread through the body, possibly causing damage to your organs.
Organic & All Natural Skin Care
At Sacred Moments Massage & Healing Center, we help you avoid harmful chemicals by offering Organic & All Natural Skin Care. We believe that you should understand what is in your skin care products. Mother Nature supplies us with everything we need. She has so many amazing ingredients to offer, and we strive to bring you the very best.
We are here to help you learn about the latest ingredients and their benefits, whether you are looking for natural botanicals, pure organics, or the newest anti-aging peptides.
But wait! We know and understand in order to have healthy, beautiful skin and to maintain younger looking skin it takes more than just natural products. Our Licensed Skin Care Specialist does more for you than just apply product. She becomes your ally in helping you maintain your skin care goals. What you see on the outside begins with what is happening on the inside! Together you will look at the importance of consuming water, certain foods, vitamins and possibly herbal supplements. It goes without saying that eating natural, organic whole foods will lead not only to better health in general, but will also allow your skin to achieve that healthy glow! Eat your GREENS!
Following these guidelines could lead to improvements in skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin. Not only will your skin be healthier, but you will also be healthier overall. And, remember, skin can be a good representation of your state of health.
BUILDING A RELATIONSHIP
We believe the relationship between a client and Esthetician is similar to that of a patient and doctor. It must be honest and real! Have you ever gone to get your lip or brows waxed and had the skin unexpectantly lift off? You always wax and never have any problems. Why now? Did you forget to tell your Esthetician about the changes in medications or maybe the recent use of RetinA, retinols or AHAs? It happens more often than most people realize. Your relationship with your Esthetician is based on clear, concise communication between both parties.
What about that Botox injection or filler? (Hey, we’re not here to judge!) Did you know it’s best to wait one week before receiving any skin care treatments? The reason for this is any massage/rubbing after an injection could cause the toxins to migrate to another area of the face. And, we do not want that! Let’s be honest, our Licensed Skin Care Specialist wants you to be happy with your treatments and we want your skin looking its best, just as much as you do!
Also, because only about two-fifths of skin conditions are evaluated by dermatologists, our esthetician can be an essential facet of your skin care team. She will always be on the look-out for unusual moles or growths, unusual changes or anything suspicious she feels may need to be brought to your dermatologist’s attention.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We believe skin care is not a luxury. It is a treatment of the largest organ on the body. Everything from rosacea, acne and anti-aging can be addressed and our Esthetician can recommend proper home care using quality organic/all natural products. Your relationship begins on your initial visit, when you will be asked to share detailed information regarding your skin, health, and product usage. Arriving on time for your visit with your Skin Care Specialist is crucial to complete the service you have requested, or that is recommended for your skin. Listed below are some of the major questions for success in treatments.
SKIN EVALUATION QUESTIONS
- What type of skin do you have?
- Do you tan? Easily or burn?
- What medications are you currently taking?
- Are you taking antibiotics oral/topical? Tetracycline?
