The Do’s & Dont’s of Spray Tanning & Waxing

FYBC 11:6

Planning on scheduling a spray tan and a wax close together in the near future? Before you make your appointment with us, don’t forget a few of the important do’s and donts for tanning after waxing.

Tanning/Waxing Do’s

Tanning after waxing your legs or another part of your body– a wax before a spray tan is a great way to exfoliate your skin. Exfoliating before a spray tan allows the tanning solution to stick to your skin better! By booking a wax before your tan you can kill two birds with one stone, exfoliate your skin and get rid of unwanted hair all at once.

Tanning/Waxing Don’ts

Getting a spray tan on the same day as a waxing appointment is a big no-no. After a wax, your skin needs time to recover. 24 hours post-wax, your skin has had the time to recover from any irritation and bumps and is still exfoliated! This way you will get the even, perfectly bronzed tan you hoped for, minus the unwanted hair.

Even if you aren’t looking to wax and tan at the same time, exfoliating your skin before both a wax and a spray tan is a wonderful idea. Remove dead skin cells by scrubbing your body with a sponge or washcloth in the bath. Remember the tanning solution always sticks to the freshest, newest skin cells it can find.

For results, you will love, schedule your waxing appointment within a day of your tanning appointment to get the most out of your for the littlest amount of effort and stress. Book your appointment now.

The Skinny On Longer Lashes

FYBC 9:12.jpg

If you are a lash-obsessed lady who doesn’t leave the house without applying mascara or false lashes, lash extensions may be a fabulous investment for you! Not only do Lash extensions allow you to have gorgeous length and volume without the hassle of reapplying mascara throughout the day, they are a natural and always gorgeous. Here at FYBC, we see lash extensions to be very similar to hair extensions, in the sense that they need a great deal of care in order to look their best. Without a little maintenance, they will never look the way you hope! If you are new to lashes or are looking maintenance advice, here are some simple tips that can help keep your lashes looking better, longer.

Avoid Sleeping On Your Stomach

The face to pillow sleeping position is a big no no and will surely crimp and bend your lashes! By sleeping face down, you will notice that certain lashes will become prone to dropping and become loose. 

Avoid Applying Heavy Liner

Fantastic looking lashes means they must be clean and free from the build up of daily debris. Not only will applying heavy, thick liner to the bases of your extensions irritate your eyeliner but it will contribute to an unhealthy build up.

Cleanse with Anything But Cotton

Although lashes can handle contact with almost any product, cotton an exception. Cotton can easily stick to your lashes and cause detrimental tangles! Make sure to comb through your lashes after washing your face.

Make your appointment with FYBC online today! We look forward to seeing you and answering any questions you may have about lash extensions.

These last few summer days are the perfect time to squeeze in a final vacation! Before you set off for Vegas with the girls or hit the sunnier shores of Mexico, there are a few things you must do before skipping town.

  1. Bronze Yourself– Although you may be heading to a destination full of sunshine, it is always a good idea to get a spray tan before laying out. Not only will you look bronzed and bikini ready but you are less likely to bake yourself in the sun if you are already feeling and look tan.
  2. Forget About Bringing A Razor– Nothing can ruin having fun in the sun like razor bumps. If you want to spend this vacation worry free, take care of your bikini line with a wax! Not only will you be razor bump free but you won’t have to worry about unwanted hair growing back while you are enjoying the beach.
  3. Leave the Mascara At HomeLash extensions are perfect for a vacation because you can look stunning with minimal effort. With Lash Extension you still get the look of longer, fuller lashes but don’t have to worry about your mascara running as you jump into the ocean or pool!

How to Change Your Skin Care Routine for Spring

fybc

Spring time means lighter nail colors, hair and makeup! While you are making changes to your beauty routine, don’t forget your skin care routine needs revision. The winter season is brutal to the surface of your skin, so in order to bring it back to life, there are a few changes you should be making.

Moisturize

The winter weather has without a doubt dried out your skin. As the spring weather heads our way, it is time to begin rebuilding and replenishing the surface of your skin. Find a moisturizer that is both a moisturizer and a facial skin protectant. Products containing vitamin E or sunflower oil keep moisture inside skin cells and do an amazing job at hydrating your skin. A quality moisturizer should contain beta and alpha hydroxy acids as well as glycolic acid

Exfoliate 

Get rid of dry and rough skin by exfoliating! When choosing the perfect spring exfoliant, avoid scrubs with apricot pits and walnut shells. These type of scrubs are too harsh and have the potential to irritate your skin. Find a scrub with soothing ingredients like beta hydroxy acids and brown sugar. Once you find your new scrub, only exfoliate 2 times a week.

Bring Out The SPF

Although SPF should be worn year round, it is a skin care necessity for warmer weather. Remember that SPF for your body is much different than the kind you should be putting on your face. Look for a non-chemical facial sunscreen! The best SPF contains ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.

Make the most of the springtime by feeling confident in your skin. Here at Forever Young Body Clinic, skin care is our specialty. For advice or professional skin care help, book and appointment with us today.

Try These DIY Organic Face Masks

fybc

 

 

Honey, Green Tea, and  Oatmeal Mask

This mask is wonderful for combination, oil or skin with acne. Just as if you were preparing your nighttime tea, soak a green tea bag in boiling water. Next, squeeze out the water from the tea bag into a mixing bowl. With the same tea bag, boil more water and use it to steam your face. Once the facial steaming is complete, begin concocting your face mask.

Mix the ground oatmeal, vitamin c powder and honey in a medium bowl. Don’t be afraid to experiment with the amount of each of the ingredients. Keep in mind that too much vitamin c will not only be hard to dissolve in the water but also it can irritate your skin. Next, apply the mask to your face and neck, but do so in an environment you aren’t afraid to get messy in. This mask takes some time to harden, so we suggest doing this mask when you have a minimum of an hour. There is no set amount of time to keep this mask on. We say the longer the better.

Ingredients:

2 Teaspoons honey

2 Teaspoons Ground Oatmeal

2 Teaspoons Water

Green Teabag

1/2 Teaspoon Vitamin C Powder

Oats, Eggs and Green Tea

Cut open 3 green tea teabags and empty the inside contents into a bowl. Squeeze a small amount of your normal moisturizer into the bowl. If you are looking to exfoliate, add  sea salt or granulated sugar into the mixture. Next, add in the 2 egg yolks, the rolled oats and a small amount of water and mix these ingredients together. If you are having trouble reaching the desired consistency, add more oats and water. In order to open the pores of your skin, rise gently with hot water before applying. Keep the mask on for 15 minutes then rise!

Ingredients:

3 Green Teabags

Facial moisturizer

Sea Salt or Granulated Sugar

2 Egg Yolks

Water

Rolled Oats
