Introducing Energy Balancing and Grounding!

Posted 27 Sep 2016 . Filed under : Health & Wellness

All living beings are electrical creatures on an electrical planet, and the earth’s natural surface is an omnipresent source of healing energy. But the simple realities of modern life—shoes, carpeting, beds—make it difficult for us to get the skin-to-earth contact our bodies need. That’s why all Salon by Debbie Spa locations are now offering energy balancing treatments! Each of these treatments is performed on a massage table enhanced with a grounding mat – a unique treatment surface that collects and transfers the earth’s energy to you.

Preventing Winter Skin Woes

Preventing Winter Skin Woes

Cold weather is almost here and along with falling temperatures comes rough, dry, chapped skin. Environmental factors such as dry indoor heat and over-exposure to warm water wreak havoc on skin this time of year. Escaping to a warmer, more humid climate for the winter sounds appealing, but for most that is not a realistic option.

 

At Salon by Debbie Spas, which include Spa in The Valley in Hunt Valley, Salon on The Avenue in White Marsh, and Salon on The Boulevard in Abingdon, we are asked by clients for tips and tricks on the best ways to treat and prevent dry skin during the harsh winter months. We advise that clients consider some lifestyle choices that go beyond a great moisturizer to help keep skin protected and feeling great.

 

Here are suggestions we pass along to our Salon by Debbie Spa clients to help ease dry skin and prevent winter skin woes:

 

  • Eat a rainbow of foods, especially fruits, vegetables, nuts and fish. These are loaded with anti-oxidants and Omega 3 fats help skin stay nourished.
  • Is your cleanser too harsh? Skin should feel soft after washing. Creamy cleansers don’t strip skin of their natural oils and are a great choice for winter.
  • Turn down the shower water temperature. Hot showers can strip skin of essential skin oils.
  • Exfoliate. The winter months are a great time to aggressively address hyperpigmentation since the sun is not at its strongest. Skin products with lightening and brightening ingredients found in exfoliants not only re-texturize skin, but also help with dark spots.
  • Moisturize right after the shower. The best regimen is to pat skin dry, and then slather on a favorite cream or body oil within 3 minutes of exiting the shower.
  • Lip protection is just as important in winter as summer. Cracked and broken lips are not only unsightly and painful, but they open the door to germs and possible sickness. A favorite lip balm reapplied keeps lips soft and supple.
  • Wear sun protection including a high SPF year-round to protect skin and prevent aging effects.
  • Consider a humidifier. A cool mist humidifier helps add moisture to heated rooms that are often moisture depleted.

 

At all three locations – Spa in The Valley, Spa on The Avenue, and Spa on The Boulevard – Salon by Debbie Spas have experts available for skin assessments and customized treatment plans. The winter is a great time to take care of skin and meet with a skincare professional to learn how to nourish, enrich and protect skin now and throughout the year.

Winterize Skin as Seen on Fox45 December 26th

Posted 26 Dec 2013 . Filed under : Health & Wellness, Spa In The News

Did you miss the television segment on Fox45 Good Morning Baltimore? Here are the tips to help the effort in dry skin care!

**Eat a rainbow of foods, especially fruits, vegetables, nuts and fish. These are loaded with anti-oxidants and Omega 3 fats help skin stay nourished.

**Determine your dry skin cause. If your body is dry, it can be internally related.  Medicine, diuretics, or just not enough oil can be contributors. Doctor reccommended supplements can help.  If your body is not dry and your face is, check that your facial products aren’t stripping you of important emollients.

**Is your cleanser too harsh?  Skin should feel soft after washing. Creamy cleansers don’t strip skin of their natural oils are a great choice for winter.

**Turn down the shower water temperature.  Hot showers can strip skin of essential skin oils.

**Exfoliate. The winter months are a great time to aggressively address hyperpigmentation since the sun is not at its strongest.  Skin products with lightening and brightening ingredients found in exfoliants not only re-texturize skin, but also help with dark spots.

**Moisturize right after the shower. The best regimen is to pat skin dry, and then slather on a favorite cream or body oil within 3 minutes of exiting the shower.

**Lip protection is just as important in winter as summer. Cracked and broken lips are not only unsightly and painful, but they open the door to germs and possible sickness.  A favorite lip balm reapplied keeps lips soft and supple.

**Wearing sun protection including a high SPF year-round to protect skin prevents aging effects.
