Acne At Any Age & How to Control it!

Long before a blemish appears on your skin, it has been forming deep below the surface.
When we look to treat acne-prone skin, from puberty through menopause, there are five areas of concern that must be addressed in order to experience actual improvement in the skin.

1.   Sebaceous (oil) Glands sit deep within your skin.  These glands are always affected when acne is present and are usually over-producing oil, even if your skin does not feel oily.

2.   Inflammation. The more profound the acne the more inflammation is present within the skin.  Inflammation is a major driving force behind acne and must be addressed both topically and internally.

3.  Slowed skin cell turnover rate. As new cells grow beneath the skin the dead cells on the surface do not shed adequately enough to allow the oil from below to escape out of the skin’s pores, causing it to become trapped.

4. Bacteria found on and in the skin multiplies at a rapid rate due to a perfect environment of dead skin cell build-up and excess oil.

5. Enzymes located in the skin are triggered by an acneic skin condition.  5-alpha reductase is an enzyme that binds with testosterone, causing sebum to become sticky.  Lipase is secreted by bacteria and contributes to inflammation (oftentimes causing scarring).

The best way to treat an acne type skin condition is by the use of proper skin care products and clinical facial treatments.  Spa 10 Estheticians will set you up on a protocol that contains all the necessary ingredients to exfoliate, calm inflammation, reduce oil production, address bacteria, and target the 5-alpha reductase and lipase enzymes.

It's OK To BE A Metrosexual Male

Metrosexual- A new name for something quite old. Men with taste & style who know about fashion, art, and culture have always existed. In past centuries, these kinds of men were in the uppercrust of society (more leisure time). Technology has enabled men with more leisure time, so all males can now fuss over their looks and aesthetics almost as much as women.  Male spa services are on the rise, and I find most men to be a bit shy about the where, what and when of how they should go about being groomed.

Not only does a lady likes a man who takes care of himself and looks well groomed, but spa treatments are meant to be relaxing, make you feel amazing and provide wellness benefits!  It’s ok to make a spa appointment- we welcome your business, we wont judge, and a good Esthetican (a fancy name for your facial and waxing technician) can and will answer all your questions.

Men have approximately 15% oilier skin and significantly larger pores than women do. Basically, this means you get dirtier. It is very important; no matter what skin type you have, to get regular facials, and have a home skin care regime that is beneficial for the health of your skin.

Think about it. What is the first thing people notice about you? It’s your face. Healthy skin is the most important element of a great looking face. At Spa 10 we customize your skin care to be sure you leave looking your best.
