Beautyfix Spotlight: SkinMedica TNS Lip Plump System

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Need to give your lips a little boost, but not interested in painful needles or injections? Using a good lip plumping treatment might be the answer and can be an inexpensive alternative to plastic surgery. There are many plumpers out there to try so it may take some researching to see which one is best for you. Luckily, opportunity is knocking as this season’s Beautyfix selection includes SkinMedica’s TNS Lip Plumping System!

As we age, our lips lose their plumpness and youthful appearance, much like the face, due to the loss of fat and collagen. It is important to implement an anti-aging skin care regimen for the lips as part of an everyday beauty routine. Without proper care, lips can age faster than other areas of our skin but greater care of your lips can reverse the signs of aging and trauma.

SkinMedica’s TNS Lip Plumping System decreases the look of fine lines and wrinkles, improves contour and increases lip volume within minutes of application. This two step, age defense lip treatment system is easy to use and applied topically just like an ordinary lip gloss. It combines the rejuvenating strength of the patented growth factor blend TNS and collagen-filling spheres to enhance fullness and smooth surface imperfections. Ingredients such as Niacin, increase circulation in the skin, conditions with soybean oil and further prevents water loss with Hydrogenated Polyisobutene.

 I love this lip plumper because there is only a slight tingling sensation, it works as a lip moisturizer and it enhances lip color. There is a slight tingle, but nothing overpowering or uncomfortable.  The results are soft, smooth lips and a perfect pout! If you are going out for the night with the girls or just going to the office, you can plump up those lips quickly with SkinMedica’s TNS Lip Plumping System. Go ahead, give it a try and tell us how you like your new lips!

A Girl’s Best Friend: Diamond Tipped Microdermabrasions

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Summer has come to an end, but I am just now beginning to realize the toll it took on my sun damaged skin. Sun spots, wrinkles, damaged aging skin, what’s a girl to do?  Yes, I did wear sunscreen all summer long and it did help, but I wanted to do something more, not only to prevent skin damage, but to erase it. I decided to take action and rejuvenate my face for Fall. They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, so when I came across a deal for a 75-minute Microdermabrasion Diamond Peel at Privileged Spa I could not resist the opportunity to see what it’s all about.  

The new Diamond Peel system is a gentler and more modern approach to Microdermabrasion. It erases epidermal layers at varying depths in a safe, controlled manner leaving little to no redness (in my case…none). Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells. Microdermabrasion also stimulates the collagen beneath the surface of the skin resulting in healthier and firmer appearance. It’s non-invasive, pain-free, and requires little to no down time after treatment. The only thing that was requested after this treatment was to avoid long hours of sun exposure and to avoid exercise for a day or two (good excuse for not hitting the treadmill) as the sweat and heat can irritate the skin and make it ultra sensitive. If you have a skin problem such as aging and sun damaged skin, acne, discoloration/hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, fine lines or enlarged/clogged pores, then the Diamond Peel would be a good treatment to try.  

After the procedure, Cosmedix Rescue Balm & Mask was applied to nourish the skin and to relieve any irritation to promote a speedy skin recovery. It felt amazing and after all is said and done, I am very impressed with the results and with the way my skin looks and feels. Using Diamonds to exfoliate the skin further proves why they are considered to be a girl’s best friend.  Not only do they look good, but they feel amazing and can make your skin glow.
