What is Tinted Moisturizer

photo-(11)Tinted moisturizer is a type of facial makeup that combines the benefits of foundation and moisturizer. More sheer and "breathable" than traditional foundation, it offers cosmetic benefits that regular moisturizer cannot. Tinted moisturizers offer a middle ground for those who dislike thick makeup but still want a hint of coverage, and they have become popular because of their light feel and natural look. Like foundation and moisturizer, tinted moisturizer can be used as a base for other cosmetics, but many women choose to wear the product alone.

Jean D’Arcel tinted moisturizer has a delicate mattifying transparency, which emphasizes the natural, fresh complexion. Light-reflecting pigments conceal small imperfections while moisturizing factors strengthen the natural protective functions of the skin and show anti-aging qualities. Application: After cleansing the face and neck and spread evenly.

Product Available at Ma Jolie Salon & Spa

Hormonal Acne

    4413201_11379_$2013_01_14_19_51_56_9798Hormonal Acne can be a distressing and frustrating problem. First things first you need to recognize when and why this occurs. Get a pen and paper and write down the answers to when you first started seeing the changes?
    • age, month, if it’s the same time during the month
    • a change in exercise level
    • a change in eating habits
    • a change in medications/vitamins
    • stress
    • change in residential location
    • Anything new to your lifestyle
          Discuss with your Esthetician or Dermatologist to help conclude what might be causing the change in your skin.

          HOW HORMONES INFLUENCE ACNE:
          · Excess sebum, or oil gland, production (influenced by hormones).
          · Skin cells that shed become abnormally sticky and accumulate, or clog up, in the hair follicle (influenced by hormones).
          · Skin inflammation.
          retinolcreamOne very important step to your at-home skincare regimen is to moisturize. Acne patients often make the mistake of not moisturizing because they equate the oiliness on their skin with moisture. These are not the same thing, and it is important to prevent dryness. Think about it. If your Stratum Corneum (the outermost layer of the epidermis) is dry to the point of no breathing room, how will your pores be able to escape the congestion it has built up? I recommend Ayur-Medic Retinol Cream. This time released Retinol at 4% is a form of Vitamin A that plays an important part in anti-aging, resurfacing, and rejuvenation of the skin. It helps to diminish pore size, fine lines and hyper-pigmentation. Excellent for mature skin that has a tendency towards hormonal breakouts. Recommended as a night cream. You can purchase this product at Ma Jolie Salon & Spa.
          The start of beautiful skin is a consistent skincare treatment and at-home regimen.

          How to use Coconut Oil to moisturize your skin:


          Coconut-and-Coconut-OilFace: rub a 1/2 dime size of Coconut Oil between fingers and pat on to freshly washed skin, adjusting amount used as needed per your skin type.  If you’ve used the coconut oil cleansing method and have plenty of oil left on your skin after washing, you can simply pat dry and skip the additional moisturizing step.
          Body: emulsify oil between palms until warm and melted and apply to skin.
          Best place I’ve found to purchase Organic Pure Coconut Oil for individual use is Trader Joes.
