Groom and Grow Better Brows

photo-filepicker-31715-600x567

We’ve been using Revita-Brow on our eyebrows for years! It’s our saving grace when it comes to keeping eyebrows looking full and bold. Made with a blend of advanced peptides, RevitaBrow is a serum that conditions the eyebrows and keep them from breakage and brittleness. But one of the most important parts of keeping your brows in good shape is a gel to keep the hairs in the right place. Revitalash Cosmetics has a new Hi-Def Tinted Brow Gel designed to tame unruly brows and filling in any areas that appear thin or sparse for an immediate fix. The brow-specific brush helps shape the perfect brow. For your next eyebrow wax and more details on getting better brows call Skin Resolutions in downtown Santa Barbara (805)569-1923.

Our Top 5 Skin Resolutions for 2014

#1 – Clean your cell phone

Ever notice that one side of your cheek has a few more bumps than you’d expect? That could be from all the bacteria on your cell phone. If you have a touch screen phone or iPhone, it’s best to pick up a cleaning spray with alcohol content, or using a small amount of rubbing alcohol on a paper towel and gently wiping down your phone. Still seeing raised white dots? Try Peter Thomas Roth’s Glycolic Acid 3% Facial Wash. This gentle acid helps to dissolve the buildup of dead skin that’s blocking the pore. Read our review on this great product here.

#2 – Don’t purchase daytime moisturizer without SPF

Even in colder weather, the sun still affects your skin. Be sure to protect it now, so you avoid looking an up to an extra 15 years older later. And don’t just slather SPF moisturizer on your face; be sure to include your ears, neck, and décolletage. We love Peter Thomas Roth’s Max Sheer SPF 30 Face Lotion. Learn more about why this fabulous product should be a part of your daily routine here.

#3 –  Be bold & try a new beauty trend once a month

What better way to spice up your look than with a splash of something new in your routine? Unleash your inner beauty diva once every few weeks with bold lips, unexpected eye shadow colors, or a wild nail polish. Change makes everyone feel fresh, and with makeup it’s less of a commitment (and more fun) than dying or cutting your hair differently. Check out some of our favorite inspiring eye trends, or our tips for prepping your lips for that new shade of color.

#4 – Update your skincare regimen

We all know that age plays a big role in how our skin looks and the way that we take care of it. Many of us may have struggled early on with all forms of acne or blemishes, but then as they years pass by other problems come along. The secret to staying fresh-faced and wrinkle free later is to act now. It’s never too late to include age prevention products in your skincare kit!

If you’ve been using the same moisturizer or face wash for the past 10+ years, it is probably time to upgrade to a new formula. Not using an eye cream daily? Well consider adding this to your morning and evening routine to hydrate the thin skin area around your eyes. Set aside some time to figure out what you should be doing at your age, with the help of the Skin Resolutions ladies. They’ll be sure to get your new skincare plan into motion!

#5 – Stop picking

Whether you pick at your cuticles or your blemishes – stop! What a lot of us don’t understand is that messing and squeezing these little guys can actually bring about much more damage. If you’ve got a blemish that continues to pop up in the same place, it’s a sign that the pore it developed in is damaged – usually a result of too much picking. Prodding a pimple can loosen the cell lining of the pore and cause the clogged oil to slip deeper into the skin, creating an inflammatory reaction and prolonging the healing process and possibly causing an infection due to the bacteria your finger has introduced to the area. The result could be a red or purplish mark that lasts indefinitely. Continue picking and poking at a scab on your face, neck, or chest and there could be an indented scar in your future.

Resist temptation when a blemish shows up on your face! Schedule an appointment with one of Skin Resolution’s estheticians, particularly when the blemish is still swollen so the exact problem area can be pinpointed. If you can’t get to your esthetician or dermatologist right away, be sure to apply a drying agent containing salicylic acid or sulfur to the blemish area. Whatever it is that you feel the itch to pick, keep your hands off it!
