Top 10 Ways to Get Healthy, Radiant Skin

I don’t think anyone has ever taken a close look at their complexion in the mirror and said: I’m good. 

Let’s be honest.  There’s always room for improvement, whether it’s diminishing those sneaky fine lines around your eyes, adding luster to life-weary skin, or gently sloughing off dead cells to reveal the fresh, fabulous layer underneath.

But sometimes it can be difficult to choose which products and services will help you achieve the results you’re looking for.  At Ecobeautica Wellness Center, our aestheticians are specifically trained to make those tough choices easier, by making informed recommendations based on your individual skin care needs that fit within your budget.

Here are our top 10 must-have products and treatments:

1. FACIAL

Anyone who has ever pampered their skin is familiar with this relaxing, rejuvenating and restorative treatment.  Using rhythmic motions that help you unwind from the moment you lay down, facials offer thorough cleansing, exfoliation and hydration for both face and neck.  They help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, unclog and detoxify debris-filled pores, boost cellular renewal, and hydrate parched skin. The result?  A healthy, glowing complexion!

2. REPLENIX® ALL-TRANS-RETINOL SMOOTHING SERUM

No matter what time of year, your complexion can always look and feel dry.  Give thirsty skin the moisture it’s craving with our retinol plus soothing serum, a hydrating combination of Green Tea Polyphenols and Caffeine that also happens to pack some additional skin-enhancing benefits.  Its texture-enhancing properties help even off skin tone, while its rich, moisturizing base helps reduce the appearance of fine lines while boosting firmness and elasticity.

3. MICRODERMABRASION

It may sound rough … but it’s actually one of the most non-abrasive, effective and simple cosmetic procedures for helping turn back the hands of time.  A microdermabrasion pad gently buffs the skin, sweeping away dead skin cells with diamond flakes then removing them with a soothing suction.  A safe, non-surgical way to remove cellular debris that can clog follicles and pores, microdermabrasion helps reveal a whole new layer of smoother, younger-looking skin.

4. LIGHT RECOVERY COMPLEX

Whether your skin is dry from being out in the sun too long or stepping out on a bone-chilling winter day, it looks and feels the same: parched, flaky and lusterless.  If you want to put your best face forward, giving it the hydration it craves is an excellent place to start.  And you can’t beat this moisturizing, super emollient, ceramide-rich complex – not only does it do the trick for dry, irritated skin, it’s also formulated to help restore skin after cosmetic procedures.

5. CHEMICAL PEELS

Like microdermabrasion, this gentle, non-invasive procedure is often misunderstood.  Custom blends of vitamin-rich topical treatments are skillfully applied to remove damaged or dead surface cells – and unveil the healthy, radiant and lustrous skin beneath.  Formulated for all skin types, chemical peels minimize fine lines, improve skin tone, lighten age spots, stimulate collagen production and clear up breakouts.  Think of them as a one-stop skin solution.

6. ELITE FORTIFIED MOISTURIZER

One of this rich, hydrating product’s main ingredients is yucca glauca root extract, a pure, natural extract derived from the root of the Mohave Yucca plant that boasts an impressive selection of essential vitamins, proteins, minerals (such as calcium, iron and potassium) and amino acids. When combined with ceramides, nourishing anti-oxidants and vitamins A, C and E, this nourishing powerhouse packs an impressive skin-softening punch.

7. MICROCURRENT FACE LIFT

While this treatment may sound like it requires days of recuperation, it’s actually much faster and easier than you’d think!  Also referred to as a “lunch-time lift” or “non-surgical face lift,” this quick, safe and non-invasive procedure uses a device that mirrors our body’s own electrical system to tighten up the skin, tone muscles to firm sagging skin around the mouth and jowl area, boost elasticity, reduce pore size, break up scar tissue, and increase collagen production.

8. OXYGEN INFUSED FACIAL TREATMENT

We tend to think of O₂ as something our bodies need to sustain life.  Well, our skin benefits from it too – especially when highly concentrated oxygen is gently delivered to the epidermis via an airbrush gun-like wand to help release dead cells and revitalize the skin.  Non-invasive and needle-free, oxygen facials not only result in a radiant, youthful and well-hydrated complexion, they also help you leave life’s daily stressors behind – even if just for a little while.

9. ELITE EYE SERUM

The eyes truly do have it – that is, when they’re looking their best.  But if you have fine lines extending from the corners, undereye bags or just dry, tired skin in that particular area, it’s time for an optical pick-me-up. This hyaluronic acid-enriched formulation is specifically designed to deliver superior hydrating benefits, along with soothing, smoothing and plumping the delicate – and often dry – eye area.  Then all eyes will be on you – in a good way.

10. HYDRAFACIALS

Featuring 4-in-1 Vortex technology, this water-based procedure starts with an Activ-4™ serum of algae, yeast extract, and glycolic and lactic acids to remove dead skin cells and smooth fine lines.  A salicylic and glycolic acid-based Glysal™ serum is then infused to dislodge dirt and sebum, which are then gently vacuumed up. Antioxidant-rich Antiox-6 is the final step to hydrate and protect skin with a cocktail of vitamins and other skin-enhancing ingredients.
