19 Sep Repair sun-damaged skin and gear up for Fall with the Brow Boutique

Repair sun-damaged skin!  The Brow Boutique is gearing up for Fall. We have a voluminous Autumn lineup that will have your skin screaming for more!

 

Recuperating from sun-damaged skin can be challenging. Most of us forget to apply sunscreen half the time, and even if you aren’t directly under the sun, the sun gets reflected off everything! The sun can cause dryness, patches, pigmentation, and sunspots, which can stay with you all winter long. Resuscitate and repair your summer skin by doing some of the following:

At home you can utilize seasonal fruits that will help you cleanse your insides leaving our outside hydrated and radiant.

1 cup Fresh Pineapple

1 whole lemon

½ half a pomegranate

Blend it all together and add it 2liters of water.

Drink this vitamin and antioxidant filled cocktail all day and start feeling beautiful inside!


 

Sun-damaged remedies:

 

A simple daily cleanser would be to use our Black Soap. It is filled with coconut oil, palm oil, palm kernel oil, shea butter and cocoa butter. They also contain ashes from different plants, like shea tree bark, banana trees, cocoa pods, and plantain leaves. For centuries, Ghanaians and Nigerians have used black soap to help relieve acne, oily skin, clear blemishes and various other skin issues. Many swear by it for skin irritations and conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

GET THE 411 ON MICRO NEEDLING…WHAT IS IT? WHY IS IT SO MIRACULOUS AND WHY DOES IT GIVE SUCH DRAMATIC RESULTS?

HERE IS A CLIP FROM GOOD MORNING AMERICA, LISTEN TO WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY…”IT’S THE NEW FACE LIFT”

 


 

“I just had this service done by Tasneem on Monday, and I have to say the treatment was essentially pain free, and I felt my skin immediately respond to the needling procedure. Today my skin feels amazingly tight, and I can feel the turnover process happening as well. I am scheduled for 5 more treatments, scheduled about a month and a half apart. I have some acne scaring from when I was a teen that we will be focusing on. I love that the brow boutique is up-to-date with the technology times. Thanks Tasneem! ~ Theresa Hutchison

19 Nov 8 Ways to Winterize Your Skin

It’s that time of the year again, where we need to start thinking about preparing for winter.  Besides only worrying about our cars and our homes, we also need to worry about our skin.  Our skin goes through the harshest of conditions all day long, from getting in a hot shower every morning, to being nice and toasty indoors, then out in the bitter cold, and back inside again.  All day, everyday our skin wages in a winter weather battle and we need to arm ourselves with the knowledge to win.

One of the most important things to do is to put back into the skin what our environment is taking out: antioxidants, skin-repairing ingredients, and cell-communicating ingredients.

We also must stop doing things that damage our skin and further destroy its ability to be vibrant and radiant. These bad habits will only make seasonal dryness worse, resulting in itchy, dry, flaky, and uncomfortable skin.

Here’s what to do:

  • Avoid soap, use only gentle cleansers: Your skin loses about 25 percent of its ability to hold moisture in the winter months, and the stuff that kept you shine-free all summer will cause cracked dry skin during the winter. Use gentle cleansers that will not strip away your skin’s natural defense against dryness.  Ask us about Simply Clean and other gentle cleansers that will protect you from the coldest of conditions.
  • Wear sunscreen 365 days a year no matter how warm or cold, or whether the sun is shining or not: Sun-damaged skin has minimal ability to function normally so it can keep looking luminous and silken. The damage leads to a host of problems that keep your skin from looking its best. So wear sunscreen all the time, even if it’s not so hot outside, the UV rays will still get you.  We suggest using one of Oprah’s favorite things:  SkinCeutical’s Physical Fusion UV Defense Sunscreen, it’s great stuff!
  • Apply a well-formulated moisturizer: If you’re struggling with dryness, use a moisturizer that is stuffed with antioxidants to fight environmental damage. It should also contain ingredients that help keep water in skin, anti-inflammatory ingredients to reduce irritation, and cell-communicating ingredients to help skin produce normal skin cells.  We carry a great skin hydrator by SkinCeuticals called B5 Hydrating Gel that is perfect for this weather and all skin types.
  • Avoid soaking in the bathtub, Jacuzzi, or taking long showers: As wonderful as a hot shower feels when it’s cold outside, it may be too harsh for your skin. Over exposing your skin to hot water breaks down the substances that keep skin cells intact. Keep showers or baths short and turn down the water temperature during the cold months.
  • Apply an all over body moisturizer immediately after your shower/bath: The sooner you get a moisturizer on the better. It will help keep any moisture on the surface of skin from escaping into the environment.  We strongly recommend coconut oil.  The advantages of coconut oil could be attributable to its presence of caprylic acid, capric acid and lauric acid as well as its antioxidant, antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal and soothing properties.  It is a deep penetrating, deep moisturizing  plant oil.  It keeps the skin hydrated and lustrous all year long.  We carry Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Whipped Coconut Oil too!
  • Get a humidifier: With the heaters running 24/7, or warmth from a woodstove, low humidity is the cause of most weather-related dry skin, humidifiers are relatively inexpensive and can always be found at your local thrift shops. Get 2 or 3 of them if you have a large home to gain all the benefits.
  • Exfoliate: A well-formulated AHA or BHA exfoliant can help facilitate normal skin cell turnover and that makes the surface of skin and the lower layers behave beautifully as they should. Helping skin do what it should do year-round (turn over the top layer and replace it with newer, smoother cells that can better protect skin) is a great way to prevent dryness and dull skin. We carry Blemish + Age Defense.  It works wonders with the skin. The beta-hydroxy acid or BHA refines the pores and helps reduce acne while the Glycolic acid or AHA eliminates dead skin cell buildup and improves skin hydration.
  • Get a Chemical Peel: Gentle PCA facial treatments with the use of Sensi Peel Exfoliating Treatment, increases exfoliation as well as hydration. It also helps with rosacea and eczema flare ups that can be fierce this time of the year.  Winter months means less sun that actually speeds up healing time.  Tasneem is a certified PCA consultant that offer exclusive PCA Peels in our area.

 

Stay warm and cozy, but most of all, Radiant and Beautiful all winter long!  Call the Brow Boutique if you’d like to know more about our hydrating products, and facial treatments that will help you win the war against dry, flaky, wintertime skin.

12 Jun The Coconut Oil Cleansing Method

So, have you ever heard of the dissolution Theory? The Oil Cleansing Method is based on the chemistry based principle that “like dissolves like”. To say it another way, “oil dissolves oil” so it’s pretty obvious that “water cannot dissolve oil”. This principle explains why many water based cleansers aren’t that effective when it comes to removing makeup or cleaning out pores.

This treatment is great to do at night, right before bedtime, and this deep cleanse should be done at least once a week. In the morning after performing this method, just do a quick wipe over with a warm washcloth, moisturize with Coconut oil, and you’re good to go. You never want to over cleanse your skin as this will serve only to irritate and cause more oil production. The objective of using this method is to deep clean while balancing your skin’s oil production at the same time.

Items you’ll need:

A soft washcloth, your Castor oil blend, and hot water. Or if you choose to steam your face, you’ll need either a facial steamer machine, or you may achieve the same affects by pouring hot water into a heat resistant bowl, and a towel to place over your head to trap the steam.

1. Pour 1 T of castor oil in a small bowl. Then add about 4 drops of your choice of moisturizing oils into the castor oil. Grapeseed oil is a sure bet, some people use Apricot and Rose Seed Oil to smooth out the fine lines, Avocado is great for restoring elasticity to the skin, and my all time favorite is Coconut Oil (It’s absolutely great for everything!), Or a combination of all or any. BB’s Whipped Coconut Body Butter is a perfect blend of coconut and avocado oil, making it ideal for the oil cleansing method.

2. Begin massaging the oil into your face. This will remove makeup, dirt, and other impurities, so there is no need to use a makeup remover or wash your face prior to the cleaning. Coconut oil also removes stubborn waterproof mascara and eyeliner, and Coconut oil can also be used as a make-up remover too, this stuff is amazing.

3. Using slow, firm motions across the skin, massage the oil deeply into your pores. Take your time and focus on your problem areas. Work the Castor/Coconut oil into your pores so that blackheads and the like can be dissolved and steamed away.

4. Relax, and give the oil enough time to work on dissolving and pulling out all of the impurities from your pores. Leave on your face a minimum of 15 minutes.

5. Pick up your washcloth and soak it in a bowl with the warm/hot water. You will want the water to be warm enough to open your pores and remove the dirt and oil. Cool water will not open your pores, nor will it remove the oil efficiently. Be very careful not to scald your skin, you are steaming your face to coax your pores to release the oils that are carrying the impurities. This is essentially the same process that your esthetician would use, but without the luxury of a steam machine. Lean your head back and place the warm wash cloth on top of your face. Allow it to stay until it cools. You will feel your pores releasing the impurities. Repeat this step 4 to 5 times rinsing the washcloth in between and getting it warm again, avoiding the urge to wipe the oil away. On your last steam, gently wipe the oils from your face. Avoid any temptation to scrub, as you’ll find it’s completely unnecessary and your skin will be soft, smooth, and free of dirt without the additional manual exfoliation and irritation that can result. Impurities, dead skin cells, and bacteria will be gently swept away.

The OCM method also works by steaming your face with hot water over a bowl.  Place your face over the bowl and put a towel you’re your head to trap in the steam. This method is extremely effective, and you can adjust the amount of heat on your face by moving close to, or away from, the bowl. Steam under the towel for about 15 minutes, and wipe your face clean with a warm wash cloth.

After the OCM, do an ice water rinse to close the pores, then spritz the face with your own organic blend of Chamomile and Green Tea toner (recipe below). Once the toner is absorbed, moisturize with Coconut Oil.

BB’s Summertime Facial Recipes:

OCM Coconut Facial Cleanser

1 T BB’s Castor Oil
5 drops BB’s Coconut Oil or ½ teaspoon BB’s Whipped Coconut Body Butter

Follow the directions mentioned above in the OCM blog.

Coconut Oil Facial Mask

1 tsp BB’s Coconut Oil or 1 tsp BB’s Whipped Coconut Body Butter
1 tsp Raw Honey

Mix well, and apply to your face. Let sit for 15 minutes, rinse with luke warm water, and moisturize with coconut oil.

Raw Honey Benefits:

         Acne and enlarged pores

Rosacea

Eczema

Hyperpigmentation, sensitive, mature, and dull lifeless skin

Green Tea and Chamomile Spritzer

1 Organic Green Tea bag

1 Organic Chamomile Tea bag

3 drops of Pure Glycerin

1 cup of boiling water

Steep both bags in the cup of water. Let cool, add 3 drops of glycerin, and pour it into a spritzer. The natural antioxidants in tea, when applied topically to the skin, will help prevent and reverse troublesome skin conditions. The glycerin brings rapid hydration to your skin, while the chamomile soothes it. For added benefit, spritz a fine mist and allow to dry before applying your favorite sunscreen.

23 May Benefits of Castor Oil and Coconut Oil

Brow Boutique features two different types of oils created specifically for the health and wellbeing of your skin and hair.

Castor Oil

Castor oil is an all-skin problem remedy!  The Brow Boutique exclusively offers one of the purest forms of castor oil to be found in Portland.  Our 8oz bottle of Pure, Cold Pressed Castor Oil is 100% Organic and Hexane Free (no chemicals added).  These four qualities set our Castor Oil apart from bottles sold at other stores.  Through a process of using the cold-pressed method to extract oil from the organically grown castor beans, in addition to leaving them in their pure state without the addition of chemicals, the Cold Pressed Castor Oil from the Brow Boutique is a unique, healthy and wholesome solution for all of your skin needs.

Castor oil has so many benefits for skin and hair growth.  The main benefit that our clients receive from using our Castor Oil is that it promotes hair growth.  Massage a small drop of Castor oil into your brows before going to bed, and watch as your brows become healthier, fuller and stronger!

Coconut Oil

The Brow Boutique encourages the incorporation of coconut oil into the daily routine of any individual.  Our Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is hexane free, cold-pressed and extracted from the meat of the coconut.  The 8oz bottle of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is used in various applications in the cosmetic and soaping industry.  Among other benefits, it is believed to promote skin elasticity and anti-aging, and it is known to be an effective moisturizer and softener for the skin.

Besides contributing to a faster metabolism, Dr. Oz states that, “Oxidation is considered a major contributor to cardiovascular problems and skin aging.  Coconut Oil can actually help our bodies reduce the need for antioxidant intake.”  Therefore, our Organic Virgin Coconut Oil applied directly to the skin has many benefits, including prolonged cell and tissue health in the body.  In addition, this oil acts as a moisturizer for both the skin and hair.  Full of vitamin E, the Organic Virgin Coconut Oil not only protects the skin by “reducing the absorption of toxins and pesticides through the skin” but moisturizes it as well.
