JMSR Business Conference 2012

Hello again! Ahhhhh it's been too long since I've blogged! Good news is it's due to an increased volume of beautiful men and women coming in and getting professional esthetic treatments! In other words I've been super duper busy at Spa Sidney :) I wanted to share my recent experience at the Jan Marini Skin Research Business Conference (that's a mouth full) with you because they have added some amazing technologies to their products that will allow me to start doing more amazing results oriented treatments on skin with Pigmentation, Acne and Adult Acne and in general men and women who want to work on Anti Aging and all around skin clarity :) 

Jan was amazing enough to give us all FREE!! JMSR Skin Care Management systems, Which won best "Skin Care System" hands down. That means out of thousands of skin care systems Jan Marini is NUMERO UNO!! the system is comprised of 5 steps: Cleanse, Rejuvenate, Resurface, Hydrate, Protect. The starter kit is a 2 month supply I started using it the first night of the conference and my skin already feels healthy, smooth, and super hydrated! I'll review again and let you know how I do in 60 days!!

Try This! The Clarisonic Skin Cleansing Brush

The Clarisonic is a great tool to unclog oily and congested skin! It's also great for stimulating the skin cells and helping with blood flow and resurfacing for mature skin. I personally use this on my clients all day long. Leaves skin feeling squeaky clean and smooth!

MySkin.com - Pure Genius!!

According to the folks at eHealth Radio "MySkin.com is revolutionizing the online skincare market." I must say I have to agree with this claim! MySkin.com is a website dedicated to well, just that, your skin! They delivery unbiased opinions (They don't accept advertisements or favor one product line over the other) from a variety of trained and licensed professionals.  Users are required to create a personal profile (you can log in with your Facebook account and share your skin nerdiness with all of your friends) Which includes a personal picture, myShelf, and myJournal. This site gets personal with skincare making sure all the information provided is customized for each individual user. MySkin.com is a genius work of art and is much needed in this industry! 
This site is especially unique because of it's two newest features: myDiscussions and myRoutines.  
myDiscussion is a forum that brings together individuals from around the world who have skin concerns or issues. Members can have discussions and ask specific questions about any skin related or product related topic, answers can come from your fellow peers or "the Experts". 
myRoutines is a virtual "Medicine Cabinet" where users can input all of the products that they are using at home. MySkin will then take those skincare products and categorize: cleansers, toners, and moisturizers followed by specialty products like serums and eye creams. myRoutines is fun because you can name your routine and chose pictures to represent it. Users have names like "Nighttime", and "Winter Routine". My routine is titled "Simply Necessary" ;)

Overall MySkin.com is a necessity because it not only provides access to over 150,000 skincare products, it opens the doors of communication between the everyday consumer and individuals who share similar skin experiences.

Junkie 2 Junkie: Acti-Rides Flash Wrinkle Eraser System!

Acti-Rides Flash was developed by Guinot’s world-renowned research team of dermatologists, biologists and chemists. The product contains an exclusive active ingredient complex, proprietary to Guinot, called Derm Liss which is comprised of: Hyaluronic Acid to improve cutaneous suppleness and elasticity and restore moisture and also Dynalift which forms a firming and enveloping film over the skin’s surface for micro-lifting effect.

Over time, skin tends to lose its youthful appearance, often appearing tired and drawn. Fine lines and wrinkles form on foreheads, near the eyes, around the mouth, etc ue to the slackeing of the epidermis and loss of support from the basal layer. Acti-Rides Flash restores the skin’s suppleness by supporting the dermis underneath the wrinkle. Using the pen applicator, pressure is applied to each side of the wrinkle, causing the connective tissue under the wrinkle to furrow and move. As a result of this movement, the loose basal layer is lifted, filling in the wrinkle from within and lifting the skin on the surface, lending for a more youthful appearance. Acti Rides Flash’s active ingredients also stimulate the production of elastic fibers, restoring density to the dermal layer and reinforcing the network of elastic fibers.

Acti-Rides Flash’s pen applicator, with 3 dermo-balls, is especially important in the smoothing process. The first dermo-ball stimulates the dermis, targeting the wrinkle in the lower skin layers and physically erasing the wrinkle in the skin’s surface. The two other dermo-balls help the active ingredients from the serum optimally penetrate the skin, thus restoring density to the dermis and boosting the skin’s level of elasticity.

It is recommended to use Acti-Rides Flash daily and apply to main facial wrinkles, working in an upward direction over the frown lines, over the crow’s feet and along the smile lines. That said, in only 2 minutes, you should notice that wrinkles are visibly erased and your face should look smoother and more youthful.

Junkie 2 Junkie: Two of my Favorie things :)

Guinot Paris Creme Hydra Beaute. This is my favorite moisturizer of all time! It contains rose extracts which are extremely hydrating. This cream also works as a "HUMECTANT" which means it draws moisture from the air to rehydrate the skin throughout the day and repair dehydrated skin. I like to call it my miracle cream, perfect for all skin types!

Physicians Choice Arizona (PCA Skin) Peptide Lip Therapy. I LOVE this stuff! Not too sticky and not too shiny it helps to keep lips hydrated without all the synthetic chemicals and petroleum that you find in cheaper brands. Includes Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Aloe and Sunflower Oil. This therapy also works as a lip plumper to help you keep your pucker during the holiday season. Great for dry, chapped or, sun damaged lips!
