Celebrity Beauty Myths Busted!

The next time you’re beating yourself up because you don’t look as gorgeous as your favorite actress, you might want to keep this in mind.

These women have a real investment in perpetuating their flawless image. Here are a few of the myths you’ve heard and believed.

“I’m not wearing any make-up.” Even Lady Gaga owned up on this one. “There’s this idea that it’s all natural, but everything has been staged to look natural,” she said. “Don’t you think that what’s on the cover of a magazine is quite artificial?”

“I was born with thick, fast-growing hair.” Hmmm. Remember when Katie Holmes got tired of her chic bob? Within a matter of weeks, she was sporting longer locks. That’s pretty hard to do since hair grows at the rate of half an inch per month. Most certainly she was wearing hair extensions.

“I was in a bikini six weeks after having a baby.” If you hire a trainer and work out hard for one to three hours daily, you can most certainly achieve this. Otherwise, it takes about eight months to a year.

Not many of us can afford to bend time to suit our wishes. Yet, models and movie stars are paid to create the fantasy of quick results minus the hard work that goes along with achieving those results.

So what’s our point with all this? Good health and beauty are never a free ride. Work with your aesthetician to steadily achieve the results you want.

That’s always the best path to take anyway. Be glad you don’t have the pressure of perfection weighing down on you!

The Truth About Why Your Shampoo Isn’t Working!

The Truth About Why Your Shampoo Isn’t Working!

The Truth About Why Your Shampoo Isn’t Working!

We’ve heard the problem many times. “My shampoo wears out on me. That’s why I switch around products.”

The truth is that hair does not get used to any product. But using the wrong product can cause disaster!

Here’s what really happens. If your shampoo has too many foaming agents, it causes your hair to dry out.

Flyaways and frizz are dead giveaways of this resulting problem.

If your hair feels weighted down and won’t do anything you want it to do, then it contains ingredients that simply coat your hair.

Instead of constantly switching around shampoos and wasting your hard earned money, we suggest you STOP THE MADNESS!

A good shampoo will not cause either of these pesky problems—no matter how many times you use it.

So what is a good quality shampoo?

– Sulfate-free to minimize dryness.
– No silicone to coat your hair.

Get more for your money, as well as stronger, healthier hair with quality you can trust—from us!

What Are The Benefits Of A Facial?

What Are The Benefits Of A Facial?

What Are The Benefits Of A Facial?

Aaah, facials! What an excellent way to relax and renew your skin. But facials do far more than provide a temporary lift to your spirits and a glow to your skin. Facials work hard long after the “feel good” is gone.

Relaxing is critical to anti-aging, and of course, facials are known for that. But did you know facials aid in detoxification and reduce the amount of fluid that has built up in your body.

How? Massage.

Facial massage helps with lymphatic drainage. Think of the lymph system as your body’s trash dump. Unfortunately, it doesn’t get emptied very often, but it facials assist with that much needed elimination.

And it shows on your skin. Skin cells are renewed, reducing puffiness and sagging skin. That’s why monthly facials are the foundation of good skincare.

Yes, get chemical peels, Intense Pulsed Light and all the other wonderful anti-aging services we have available, but make facials the anchor to all your treatments!

6 Hair Care Myths Debunked!

6 Hair Care Myths Debunked!

6 Hair Care Myths Debunked!

You’ve heard them a million times. Are they true or just fairytales? Well, here are the facts on 7 hair care myths:

– Brush 100 strokes for shiny, healthy hair. Nope. Brushing more than is necessary can cause excessive breakage, especially if you use a brush with plastic bristles.

– Prenatal vitamins help hair grow longer. We know women swear by them, but there’s no evidence to suggest they stimulate hair growth. Of course, pregnancy does that anyway.

– You can restore damaged hair to good health. We wish. There is no magic to heal or restore hair that’s been damaged. Just use good products that artificially add moisture until you can cut the damaged hair.

– A cold rinse keeps hair shiny and frizz-free. Cold water lays down the cuticle, yes. But blow drying and styling undo it.

– Shaving makes hair grow back thicker. Shaving acts on the hair shaft, which is already dead, not the follicle. It does not make hair more coarse or thick.

– You can train your hair. You probably already know the answer to this one. Whatever pattern you were born with is what you have to live with.

There you have it. Six pesky little myths officially debunked.

Aren’t All Eye Cremes Pretty Much The Same?

The short answer, no way! That’s like saying all skincare is the same. Can you imagine creating one product for oily, dry, or combination skin? Pretty silly, huh? That’s why there are different formulations of eye creams to meet your specific needs.

Some are specially formulated for dry or sensitive skin. Others smooth fine lines, minimize dark circles and reduce puffiness. Some eye cremes will even attack all of those problems at once.

Talk to us about what you want to achieve and we can show you the best formulation for your needs. The important thing to remember is this: eye cremes must be lightweight and glide on easily.

Since most of us wear foundation and eye make-up, applying a heavier facial moisturizer near your eye area can cause your make-up to run. Eye creams are lighter and melt right into the skin preventing raccoon eyes.

But what if your eye area is dry? Can you use oil around your eyes? The answer here is a cautious yes. Ophthalmologist tested and approved oils specially formulated for this area are best.

These are far less likely to clog the delicate tissue causing milia, or white bumps. But how do you know which eye creme is right for you? We can help you there.

The Benefits of Sugaring

The Benefits of Sugaring

The Benefits of Sugaring

Another way to remove unwanted hair is sugaring. While waxing is the most common hair removal method, sugaring is now getting more preferences due to its benefits.

1. Natural ingredients. The ingredients for the sugar paste are all edible.

2. Sugaring is less painful. Since wax is so easy to heat up, it may cause burns, welts and scarring. Wax can also cool and dry on the skin. And when this happens, it can be quite painful to remove it. Also, sugaring only removed dead skin cells, unlike wax that can stick to live skin.

3. Sugaring is more sanitary. With the sugar content so high in the sugar paste, bacteria cannot grow. It is also easier to clean up because it is water soluble. Wax can leave residue on your skin making you feel sticky. Since the sugar paste quickly dissolves with water, you only get smooth results.

4. Sugaring works even with very short hairs. Hair needs to be about ¼ inch long for waxing to work. Sugaring can remove hairs as short as 1/16 inch. Waxing also breaks about 30% of the hairs it removes. This means you’ll have to wait for a few days for the hair to get long enough to be removed properly. And when the hair has not been removed from the root, regrowth is immediate.

5. Sugaring leads to permanent hair removal. When hair is removed, the bulb is also removed. Eventually, follicle atrophy occurs where the collapsed follicle can no longer rebuild itself and reproduce hair.

How To Make Curly Hair Behave

How To Make Curly Hair Behave

How To Make Curly Hair Behave

Do you wake up in the morning wondering if you and your hair will duke it out?

Many curly girls feel the same way, and it’s completely understandable. You have the most envied hair type…and the most difficult.

To make matters worse most curly hair girls don’t understand how different their hair type really is! They just know it’s tough to work with.

So let’s set the record straight.

Curly hair is drier than any other hair type. It also has the most diverse hair texture because it can appear in so many different forms, like wavy, medium or tight coils.

That’s why there are two non-negotiable, absolutely, positively essential “gotta haves” with curly hair.

The first is an experienced stylist with advanced training! Curly hair, with all its twists, turns and curves, is a very tricky hair type to work with. Without considerable expertise your haircut can mean tears and frustration.

We love curly hair so much we took advanced classes on how to properly cut and care for it!

Hand in hand with an experienced stylist, every curly girl needs the right products for her specific hair texture. We do not recommend over-the-counter products because they are made with large molecules.

That means they sit on your hair cuticle; they don’t penetrate it. Needless to say, their effectiveness is mediocre. With Theorie, the molecules are considerably smaller, penetrating the cuticle, and actually working with your hair to improve and enhance it. You really do get what you pay for!

Use your stylist as a resource and an ally because she is! She can show you how to give your curls the delicate attention they need for beautiful, bouncy, lovable hair.

No more misbehavin’!

Is “Lather, Rinse, Repeat” Enough?

Is “Lather, Rinse, Repeat” Enough?

It’s true, that’s our standard advice when washing your hair. And, of course, we have products that really help to give you shine, body and bounce. But if you want really healthy hair, shampoo, conditioner, and hair products just aren’t enough.

Hair that has natural shine, with body and bounce, actually begins in the kitchen! And get this: you won’t need to work as hard—or spend as much money—on hair products when you give your hair what it craves.

Include salmon, dark green vegetables, beans, nuts, poultry, eggs, whole grains, and carrots. All of these foods are colorful in their own right. And that’s what gives you such marvelous results!
