Skin Rejuvenation: The Fantastic Four

Posted: October 28, 2011, from the November 2011 issue of Skin Inc. magazine.

Editor’s Note: Skin Inc. magazine recommends that skin care professionals obtain the proper training before offering any new treatments or services.

Winter weather can stir up all kinds of trouble for the skin, often bringing with it a slew of seasonal villains that can leave skin feeling beat up.

There is Jack Frost, a cold character who often leaves skin feeling dull and dry, and his evil sidekick, Doctor Wind, who often joins Frost, whipping up icy blasts that cause skin to become brittle and crack. And do not forget Stress Man, a spirit with the unique ability to stir up hectic holiday situations that range from difficult family members to frantic fights for the season’s must-have toy.

Luckily, an elite force of specially trained experts exists to save the day. Known as The Esthetic Professionals, they fight to end their clients’ winter woes with the super arsenal of tools they have at their disposal. An esthetic professional’s utility belt comes equipped with a variety of skin-rejuvenating treatments suited for any skin situation. Dry skin, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and acne breakouts do not stand a chance.

Carrot-E Chop Facial

During the winter, people bundle up to protect themselves from the harsh elements. However, the most sensitive area of skin is often left exposed: the face. This delicate area is the perfect target for cold winds, dry indoor air and icy temperatures that draw moisture from the skin. As a result, skin is often left dull, dry and dehydrated. You can help your clients battle the chilling effects of winter by providing them with a facial that is sure to please.
