3 Foods to Avoid on a Clear Skin Diet

fybc .jpg

Keeping your skin clear can be a challenge. Between weather changes, stress management, and hormones, maintaining clear skin can sometimes feel impossible. What if we told you there was something you could do to better control the clarity of your skin? Well, you are in luck because your diet is a major influence on your skin. Here are 5 acne causing foods to steer clear from this fall.

Dairy

Dairy products are the biggest culprits when it comes to causing acne. If you are breaking out on your neck, chin or jawline, chances are your intake of dairy is to blame. Why dairy? Dairy products increase your body’s release of insulin and other growth hormones.

Bananas

Sugar, in general, is not good for clear skin and bananas are especially high in sugar. Too much sugar leads to inflammation of the skin which often leads to acne and redness. People who remove sugar from their diet oftentimes see a difference in their skin in just one week.

French Fries

The notion that greasy foods cause acne used to be just a myth. However, studies have proven that greasy foods are a direct connection to acne. French fries have a glycemic index of 75 which means it has the ability to drastically change your body’s blood sugar. Elevated blood sugar increases insulin which increases excess oil and skin cell production and leads to clogged pores and breakouts. In addition, the high presence of salt dehydrates your skin.

The cleaner the diet, the clearer your skin will be. To feel great on the inside and outside, avoid these three foods. For more information on ways to keep your skin clean and clear, contact us at Forever Young Body Clinic. Book an appointment with one of our skin care specialists today.

Waxing Is A Necessity All Year Round

fybc 12If you are new to the waxing scene, we feel it is necessary to share with you all about this amazing beauty regime. Forget the razors, shaving cream, and the hassle because, with one wax, all your unwanted hair is gone. We cannot begin to tell you how many benefits there are to waxing! Not only will one wax leave your skin feeling smooth and soft for countless weeks, a wax will also reduce hair growth over time, which can be a game changer when it comes to the bikini area. For the bikini and Brazilian waxes, we use a special blue, hard wax, which attaches itself to the hair, making the process less uncomfortable but quicker and easier. Although there is a painful stigma attached to any waxing, so many of our clients have never experienced pain. When waxing is done properly, the pain is very minimal! Here at Forever Young, we are professionally trained to ensure that our waxing services go as smoothly as possible. You don’t have to go on vacation in order to get a bikini or Brazilian wax.

3 Ways To Add Pumpkin To Your Skin Care Routine

fybc 8:3

The transition from the summer heat to brisk fall weather can certainly take a toll on your skin. Although stocking up on a quality moisturizer is beneficial, the key to keeping your skin fresh and healthy may be sitting in your backyard. Autumn is the best time to take advantage of pumpkin and its skincare benefits.

Pumpkins offer the benefits like:

  • Help promote cell turnover
  • Brightens & smooths skin
  • Is a natural source of zinc which fights acne
  • High in fatty acids and vitamin E

Regardless of the skin type you have, pumpkin-based products can help! Here are a few ways to incorporating pumpkin into your fall skincare routine:

1. Pumpkin Spice Body Scrub

Everyone needs a good exfoliant! They are great for getting rid of dry, dead skin and can help bring back a natural glow. However, it is important to moisturize after any scrub.  If you don’t have a moisturizer, simply add a few teaspoons of rich plant oil to your Pumpkin Spice scrub recipe.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup organic canned pumpkin (or homemade pumpkin puree)
  • Mix sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon together. Mix with pumpkin. Apply to skin and scrub in a circular motion, and rinse.

2. Pumpkin Puree Moisturizer

This moisturizer should be made in small batches because it will get moldy if left unused. It should be stored in the fridge

In a large bowl mix:

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Store in the fridge and use just like a regular moisturizer!

3. Pumpkin Flesh Facial

It sounds a bit odd, but you can toss pumpkin puree right onto your skin and leave it be for several minutes and be doing some good for your skin.

If you have a little more time, try this facial:

  • 2 tablespoons of canned pumpkin (puréed)
  • 1 tablespoon of soy yogurt or ¼ teaspoon of soy milk
  • ½ teaspoon of brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cranberry juice or
  • ½ teaspoon oatmeal

Since autumn is the season of pumpkin, put it to good use! Try these DIY seasonal skin care treatments and let us know how you like them.

Make A Statement With Your Brows & Lashes This Fall

FYBC 9:26

It’s September, and the fall season is just about here! Although each season brings its new trends in fashion and beauty, there is just something about those that emerge during the Fall. This Fall, it’s all about long lashes and full eyebrows. If you are trying to get on board with the latest seasonal trend, we can help. Not only are our beauty services the best in Denver, but our talented staff is great at creating the exact look you are going for. 

 Changing your look dramatically is not necessary in order to bring a fresh energy for fall. All it really takes is some restraint with your tweezers and the addition of some lash extensions.

The Key To Fuller Brows: To achieve the fuller brow look, it is not a bad idea to toss your tweezers to the back of your beauty drawer for a few weeks. Many of us fall into the trap of over plucking our brows. Instead of going crazy and getting rid of any stray hair, let your brows grow out a bit. Once your brows have reached optimal fullness, come and visit us! We can help you shape your brows perfectly with a quick wax all while maintaining the full brow look.

Achieve Longer Looking Lashes: Sometimes mascara just doesn’t cut it. If you are looking for a quick and effective way to fill out and lengthen your natural lashes, lash extensions are an amazing option. All it takes is one application appointment to achieve the look you are hoping for.

Trust our professionals to help you stay looking lovely all season long. Now is a great time to book your appointment with us!

3 Things That Better The Outcome of Any Spray Tan

FYBC 9:28

There is nothing worse than ruining a perfectly good spray tan. Since spray tans be costly to fix, we decided to let you in on a little secret. There are a few things you can do before your spray tan appointment that will drastically improve the outcome of your tan. Here at Forever Young Body Clinic, it is our job to get your spray tan right the very first time! However, by following these few pre-spray tan steps we can guarantee a spray tan that you will love. 

 

  • Exfoliate

With a gritty or non-oil based scrub, exfoliate your skin well before coming in. Exfoliating before your spray tan remove any dead skin cells that may be on the surface of your skin. If your goal is an even tan, you don’t want to forget this step!

  • Put the Razor Down

We highly recommend NOT shaving or waxing (yes, that’s right ladies you heard us) until after your spray tan has settled overnight. Shaving can be a form of exfoliating and although it is helpful before a spray tan, exfoliating is a big no-no during the first 24 hours after a spray tan. Chances are shaving or waxing will remove your beautiful tan. So, feel free to book your wax prior to your spray tan!

  • No Makeup

Save yourself the last minute hassle and remove any makeup, lotions, or oils on your skin before coming into the salon! However, deodorant, lip gloss, and mascaras do not need to be removed.

We hope to make your spray tan experience with us the best yet. By considering these spray tan tips, chances are your spray tan will come out flawless. Book your appointment today online or simply call to set up your next spray tan! We look forward to seeing you.
