What Is Your Skin And Body Telling You?

What Is Your Skin And Body Telling You?
Have you heard of face and body mapping? Its takes the guess work out of what’s going on with your face and body. It is Targeted Results!
Dermalogica’s Face Mapping Skin Analysis and Body Mapping provide a deep look into your skin’s health. The latest advances in skin analysis provide you with a treatment specifically designed to address your personal skin concerns. It’s targeted skin care for exceptional results, and it’s available from our Dermalogica skin certified professional at Lorna Baxter Skin Care and Body Work Center.
Let us explain the Zone areas and let you see how certain areas of your face are connected to other parts of your body.
Zone 1: Left side of Forehead
Look and feel for congestion and dehydration, congestion can occur from not cleansing thoroughly in these areas.
Zone 1 & 3: Bladder & Digestive System – improve your diet and drink more water.

Zone 2: Between the Eyebrows
Areas of excess oil production and ingrown hairs, excess oil production in this area cause breakouts.
Zone 2: Liver – try cutting back on alcohol, also indicate food allergy.

Zone 3: Right side of Forehead
Same as zone 1, congestion and dehydration

Zone 4: Right Ear
Look for comedones and congestion.
Zone 4 & 10: Kidneys – keep yourself hydrated with water and cut back on liquids that dehydrate you, eg. soda, coffee, and alcohol.

Zone 5: Right Cheek
Looking for broken capillaries and subsurface congestion, those who smoke, have allergies, suffer from sinus problems or getting over a chest infection tend to have milia and acne in this area.
Zone 5 & 9: Respiratory System

Zone 6: Right Eye
Look for milia, fine lines and dark circles. Milia in this area can be cause by make-up that contains comedogenic ingredients. Dark circles or congestion under the surface of the eye orbit are often hereditary, but are worsened by poor elimination and lack of sleep.
Zone 6 & 8: Kidneys – dark circles are usually a result of dehydration. Drink up!

Zone 7: Nose and Upper Lip (Between the nose and lip)
Look and feel for congestion and broken capillaries. This zone tends to have the most congestion of all the zones due to the excess of sebum production. Broken capillaries around the nostrils are an indication of squeezing or poor extraction technique. Comedones along the lip line will indicate the use of lip balm, lipstick or lip liners with comedogenic ingredients.
Zone 7: Heart – check your blood pressure, and also make sure you’re not using products that irritates your skin.

Zone 8: Left Eye
Same as zone 6, milia, fine lines and dark circles. Results of dehydration!

Zone 9: Left Cheek
Same as zone 5, broken capillaries and or congestion, will find milia and acne due to smoking or allergies.

Zone 10: Left Ear
Same as zone 4, comedones and congestion, eliminate soda, coffee and alcohol. Keep yourself hydrated with water!

Zone 11: Left Side of Chin
Undersurface congestion and breakouts can be due to insufficient cleansing all the way down to the jaw lines, leaving make-up and cleanser residue.
Zone 11 & 13: stress and hormonal changes, hormonal imbalance.

Zone 12: Chin
Undersurface congestion and breakouts can be due to improper cleansing technique, comedogenic ingredients or leaning head on hands.

Zone 13: Right Side of Chin
Same as zone 11, undersurface congestion and breakouts.

Zone 14: Neck and Chest
Breakout activity, pigmentation and signs of aging. Pigmentation may reveal photosensitivity to fragrances over a long period of time or insufficient application of sun care products to the neck and chest area.
This area is commonly exposed to the sun and should always be protected because it is the first zone to show signs of aging
Zone 14: Illness – can be a sign your body fighting bacteria.

Relax, Rejuvenate…Spend Time On You

Relax, Rejuvenate…Spend Time On You

If you’re feeling run down and suffer from persistent fatigue, a spa rejuvenation could be just what you need. Many problems are usually a combination of stress, bad diet, overwork, lack of exercise, and lack of personal attention.

A rejuvenation can include a schedule of essential oil massage and body treatments to stimulate your system while the action increases blood flow, bringing oxygen and nutrients to starved cells you didn’t know you had. A spa environment also has a beneficial effect, allowing you to forget the pressures of the world outside and concentrate purely on your body and mind.

Take a step into our world of relaxation and personal attention. We at Lorna Baxter Skin Care and Body Work Center, open our arms to you with a philosophy that combines earth and nature. Just like earth’s combination of the four seasons, Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer, we combine the four steps of, Insight, Cleansing, Nourishing, and Transformation. Personal attention creates an indelible memory that makes your journey irreplaceable and a process to help one better understand the benefits of personal care.

Our menu has a large selection to meet all of your needs. It is time to make decisions about the attention you so deserve:
It is time for a Therapeutic Massage….come and enjoy a journey of “mind and soul” away from everyday stresses.
It is time for an Anti-Aging Facial Treatment….rejuvenate your skin, lift, firm and hydrate.

It’s Time To Spend Time On You…Relax, Rejuvenate! Call and book your appointment today! 754 204-7676

Massage Benefits

Massage Benefits

Massage is a great way to reduce stress in your life. Not only are the physical effects very soothing, but there is often reduced anxiety and increased feelings of well-being. Massage has been proven to reduce levels of “stress hormones” that can be hazardous to your health.

Pain Reduction- Muscular aches and pains are often reduced or eliminated through massage therapy. Those with chronic pain may get long-lasting relief. It is also common, through massage, to experience pain relief from conditions such as chronic low back pain, migraines and other headaches, sciatica, carpel tunnel syndrome, and arthritis.

Improved Circulation- The circulation of the blood and lymph are generally improved through massage, helping eliminate toxins, improve immune and healthy body function, and just plain feels good.

Improved Flexibility- Massage can enhance tissue elasticity and flexibility and help increase the range of motion (mobility) of your joints.

Better Sleep- Many people sleep more restfully after receiving massage therapy. The benefits continue even several days after therapy takes place.

Better Athletic Performance- Anyone who wants to be better in their sport should have regular massage therapy. In addition to the benefits above, Sports Massage can reduce recovery time from workouts, help prevent injury, and speed up healing of injuries – letting you make greater gains

Skin Exfoliation

Skin Exfoliation

Skin Exfoliation, should we exfoliate or should we not?
Exfoliation, the “sloughing off” of dead surface skin cells, can turn dull skin to glowing and beautiful skin. The epidermis is what you see, the outermost layer of your skin, and it is the one that is affected by exfoliation treatment products, the one you can visibly change.

As thin as a sheet of paper, the epidermis is made up of many layers of cells, each of which is constantly moving. The lowest layer (basal) is where new, fully hydrated cells form and mature before moving upward; once they reach the skin’s surface, they die and are shed to be replaced by new healthy cells underneath.

The natural sloughing process slows as we get older. In addition, the environmental factors of sun, wind, pollution, dirt, and the use of makeup combine to age the top layer of cells faster than new cells can be produced to replace them, thus you end up with a dull, lifeless complexion. It is essential that exfoliation be a part of your skin care regimen.

We offer many types of exfoliating treatments. For further information and to book a treatment, call us 754 204-7676, today.
