Natural Ways To Fight Seasonal Allergies

FYBC 7:27.jpg

If you are experiencing seasonal allergies, this post is for you! As summer begins, you may be experiencing swelling, itchy eyes and skin. Here are a few tips that can provide temporary relief and can remedy any allergy symptom you may be experiencing. 

Chilled Goats Milk

You can fight just about any eye infections and irritation with chilled goats milk. Goat’s milk has a natural immune boosting effect that can provide relief as the season’s change. Apply cotton rounds soaked in chilled goats milk to your eyes before getting ready in the morning and before bed to curb allergy symptoms for the whole day.

Rosewater Rinse

With pure rosewater, rinse or place a couple of drops underneath your eyes throughout the day. Like the goat’s milk, you can also chill the rosewater for the same calming effect.

Organic Aloe Vera Chill

Just like the goat’s milk trick, apply chilled aloe-soaked, cotton round to your eyes. You can either individually extract aloe from the plant itself or purchase a bottle of pure organic aloe.  The effect is virtually the same. Organic aloe is a must! Not only is this process soothing but it is perfect for bringing down inflammation.  

Theses home remedies really do work! However, if you are looking for hands-on treatment, book your appointment with us today. Our facials and skin treatments are sure to calm any seasonal irritation you may be experiencing. Calm, fresh skin is waiting for you. Call us today.

Foods That Brighten Your Complexion

FYBC 7:25.jpg

Consuming a well-balanced diet full of key nutrients is not only vital to your health but also to your skin. It is no secret that eating our fruits and vegetable are healthy and packed for of important ingredients, but a few stand out when it comes to brightening and clearing up the surface of your skin. By consuming these foods you may see a vast change in your complexion.

Carotenoids- Veggies that contain the chemical compound carotenoid, such as red peppers, carrots, and sweet potatoes, are proven to cause your skin to glow and appear more golden in color. Recent studies show that people who eat more foods rich in carotenoid have an overall healthier looking, less pale complexion.

Healthy Fats- Healthy fats such as olive oil and avocados are crucial to keeping your skin properly hydrated. The consumption of both carotenoid- rich foods and healthy fats increase the absorption of the compounds within these foods that help with complexion brightening. By eating more avocados you will consume more linoleic acid, which helps the skin hang on to water. The outcome? Plump and radiant skin!

Vitamin C & E- Kiwis, Lemons, Oranges, Mangoes are full of both Vitamin C and E, as well as antioxidants. These three properties naturally block the skin from damage and also rejuvenate it. Vitamin C which can be found in most citrus fruits is a key component to collagen synthesis. Loading up on vitamin C will fight the natural breakdown of collagen and protects you from wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Maintaining a well-balanced diet will certainly pay off down the road. If you are looking for more help with your complexion, contact us at FYBC! Take care of your skin and it will thank you later. Book an appointment with one of our skin care professionals today.

A palette perfect for the sublet and natural approach is is the Urban Decay Naked2 available at Sephora for just $29.00!

Go Mascara Free Mascara can be such a hassle! If you are looking for a more natural and convenient alternative to mascara, eyelash extensions maybe perfect for you. Our eyelash extensions are natural looking and give you the ability to wake up and look ready for the day.

The Secret To Keeping Up With Your Brows

FYBC 7:18

Bold and shapely brows remain forever trendy, yet a few of us are late to the party. If you are in need of some brow shaping tips and methods, we have a few amazing tips you are sure to use and love.

Go with your brow’s natural shape – The worst mistake you can make when penciling your brows is to draw in something that isn’t there. The key to achieving natural looking, full brows is to enhancing your brow shape in subtle ways.

When filling in your brows, stand away from the mirror– Getting some distance between and your reflection will give you a better view of what you are doing as well as how your brows look from far away. This is a great way to see if there are any gaps or discoloration.

Focus on your arch– When filling in your brows, make sure your arch gets a little extra love. That is the part of the eyebrow that will change your look for the best.

Don’t over-tweeze– Waxing really is the best option for shaping your brows, however when re-growth happens to be sure to keep your lines clean by tweezing out excess hairs.

Regular Waxing– Waxing is a great way to shape your brows so that they are at their best. We can help you focus on getting the proper shape for your face.

We offer the best waxing service in all of Denver! Our team is highly trained, experienced and ready to wax your brows into shape. Today is the day to book your appointment and give us a try. Strong brows are more important than you think.

Summertime Necessities!

FYBC 7:6Part of feeling and looking your best lies within the little details. We all have our go-to summer fragrance, nail color, and hairstyle, but what about the seasonal essentials you may have overlooked? Here are 4 beauty essentials to incorporate into your summertime routine.

Facial Care- Since sun exposure is tough to avoid during the summer months, a great facial mask will come in handy. For some, the sun can dry out the surface of the skin whereas, for others, skin can become oil. Regardless of the effect, the sun has on your skin, a facial can help skin equalize and return to its normal state. If you are looking for a more personal, custom skin care, enlist the help of a professional.

Hair Removal- Short shorts, bikinis and pool days mean you need a reliable way to maintain unwanted body hair! Although shaving and waxing at home are easy, it is certainly not the best approach. Finding the help of a professional means that you don’t have to deal with painful razor burn and embarrassing razor bumps. If you are new to waxing in a salon, you will be pleasantly surprised with how pain-free and quick the process is. Find a salon you can trust and spend fewer summer days hiding shaving/waxing mishaps.

SPF Moisturizer- One of the easiest ways to ensure you are always protected from the sun is to use a skin moisture that has SPF incorporated into it. This is a great way to minimize your exposure to damaging UV rays and hydrate your skin. Look for a moisturizer with an SPF level of at least 30.

Tinted SPF Lip Balm- The perfect lip balm is a dime a dozen! Although there are so many great ones out there, finding a scent, shade and consistency that you love can be hard. Our personal favorites include the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment by Sephora, Jouer Lip Sheer in Santorini and Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm in Healthy Blush.

Be prepared for whatever comes your way this summer! If you are looking for beauty assistance, contact us at Forever Young Body Clinic today or book an appointment with us today. We have experience and trained professionals ready to help you.

The Dangers of DIY Hair Removal

FYBC 7:11.jpg

Maintaining your bikini line is just part of life. Not only is it annoying but it can be painful and tough to do. Although shaving or waxing in the comfort of your own home is cost effective, do you want to be taking the cheap route when it comes to your body?There are always ways to cut corners financially when it comes to beauty services, like giving yourself a manicure or highlighting a few strands yourself…but at home waxing can go horribly wrong if done incorrectly. If you are considering waxing your bikini area yourself this summer,  here are some reasons why you should leave it strictly to us.

Scarring – If you wax goes terribly wrong, for example, you tear the skin, you could scar. This is worst case scenario, but it happens more than you may think. Hot wax and tender skin are nothing to mess with.

Burns – Although you may have read up on the procedure and are being extra careful, waxing yourself is never a good idea. First of all, you are unable to see the entire area you are waxing…even with the help of a mirror. That means your placement of the wax is not going to be spot on. Because you don’t have the same vantage point as a professional would, there is room for error and burns.

Irritation & Infections – No matter how clean your home is, it will not be as sterile as our waxing studio. If you are waxing yourself in your bathroom or anywhere in your home for that matter, you are unintentionally exposing yourself to bacteria which can cause skin irritation and serious infection.

Leaving the waxing to our professionals is the best and safest bet. Our staff is professional and trained to help you feel confident and beautiful! If you are ready to get rid of unwanted hair in a quick and painless manner, book your next waxing session with Forever Young Body Clinic.
