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.

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.

Easy Ways To Protect Your Skin in the Sun

FYBC 7:4.jpgIf you love being outside but hate the thought of exposing your skin to harmful UV rays, there are ways to combat potential sun damage. Since this summer is proving to be bright and hot one, take the proper precautions to ensure the health and longevity of your skin.

Cover Up– If you know you are going to be outside for an extended amount of time, a hat is a great way to ensure you are protected. It just so happens that the floppy, big hat look is in this summer! For maximum protection, invest in a hat that covers your head, face, and shoulders.

Sunglasses– In this case, the bigger the better. The ideal pair of sunglasses is large frames big enough to cover the whole area around your eyes with polarized lenses with some sort of UV filter. Keep in mind that you should avoid any pair of sunglasses with a reflective lense! Although they are super trendy this summer, they will bounce UV light onto your cheeks

Sunscreen– One of the easiest ways to ensure you are always protected from the sun is to use skin products (primer, moisture etc) that have SPF incorporated into them. This is a great way to minimize your exposure to damaging UV rays. Look for products with an SPF level of at least 30 and to apply it just a frequently as you would sunscreen.

Avoid Laying Out– There is nothing healthy about sunbathing. Aside from the occasional burn, over exposing your skin to direct sunlight has dangerous consequences. If you are unwilling to give up sunbathing, consider taking it slowly and allow your skin to build up its melanin. If being tan is that important to you, a spray tan can give you that sunkissed look without the damage.

The way you treat your skin right now will certainly dictate how youthful, healthy and fresh you look later on in life. Taking good care of your skin now is vital to remaining healthy and naturally beautiful. Do what is necessary to protect your skin from the sun and look beautiful doing it.
