Charcoal in Skin Products

Charcoal in Skin Products

You may be used to finding charcoal in your backyard grill or your water filter.  The carbon derivative has even been used in medicine to help prevent toxic substances from being absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract.  It is showing up as a way to "detox" the skin.

The charcoal in facial products is a cosmetic-grade version that is further refined to remove impurities.  These particles pull dirt, oil and other impurities from the surface of your skin.

Clear The Air - reducing congestion

The Flu Season is upon us, but allergies are also present so do not allow nonstop sneezing, itchy eyes or a drippy nose to ruin your holiday fun.

A great tip to clear the air is by adding a few drops of eucalyptus oil to a bowl of steaming water or pouring a little on the floor of your shower before turning on the hot water can provide some congestion relief.  The substances's strong piney scent helps open nasal and sinus passageways, allowing you to breathe easier.

Antioxidants are a MUST!

Antioxidants are a must for any skin care regimen to help fight off reactive oxygen species .

Reactive oxygen species can occur from several internal and external factors, the most prevalent being sun exposure.  It is not just UV rays that skin needs to be protected from, it is also infrared rays, which means skin needs more than just sunscreen to protect it from external stressors.

Even the most  complete sunscreens only help protect against up to 55% of UVA-induced free radicals.  It is vital to have another shield of defense.  So  while taking vitamins orally is important, some say that only minimal amounts actually reach the skin after being absorbed by other areas of the body.

Try to incorporate topical antioxidants to your skin care routine for maintenance and protection.

Chocolate facial treatments-the height of luxury

Hi Bellas,

The Chocolate Experience

Chocolate does a body good.  The scent of  chocolate has been shown to release serotonin and dopamine helping relax the nervous system.

The antioxidants in cocoa powder make it an excellent anti aging and anti-inflammatory agent.

My recipe for DIY Cocoa Face Mask:

This stimulating mask opens pores and rejuvenates skin.  It's safe to eat it if it gets in your mouth by accident-or on purpose-and it tastes fantastic!

2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
1 teaspoon honey

Make a paste of all the ingredients and spread it on as a mask after cleansing.  Avoid the eyes.

After 10 minutes, remove with a warm, damp towel.

Neck & Decollete Treatment

When thinking about skin care, the face is generally the first area of concern that comes to mind.  However, there are other parts of the body that can provide telling signs of age after going years without proper protection and skin care.  Two areas that are often neglected in this way are the neck and décolleté.

It is important to remember to apply sunscreen to the neck and the chest.  These areas are exposed to ultraviolet rays almost as consistent as the face.  You can increase firmness and elasticity to the neck and the chest.

Retinol is one of the most highly studied ingredients in the industry and provides a host of benefits for the skin, such as collagen and elastin stimulation.

Chemical Peels for Skin Rejuvenation

Hi Bellas!

Another option for skin rejuvenation does not involve the use of a high-tech device but rather a treatment that has been performed for thousand of years.  I am not kidding!

Chemical Peels have been used since the days of ancient Egypt to treat a variety of skin concerns.

Chemical Peels are widely popular today-they are able to refresh skin for a younger-looking appearance, reduce the appearance of scars and acne marks and even out skin tone.

Four of the most popular types of chemical peels are:  alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), Beta hydroxy acid(BHA),
Jessner's Peels and Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels.

At Bella Forza ALL Skin rejuvenation treatments are evaluated on a personalized basis.

A thorough consultation and evaluation is essential to developing the best treatment plan.

Find your skin type

Find Your Skin Type

It is important to identify your personal skin type before choosing your products.  To ensure a perfect match, and to properly care for your skin, choose your skin type based on the following options and then consult with your esthetician at Bella Forza.

DRY SKIN

Your skin feels dry and tight, and sometimes you can see flakes on your cheeks, chin and forehead.  Fine lines may be present around your eye and lip contour areas.  It is important to use moisture-rich products such as a daytime moisturizing treatment at night to repair your skin while you sleep.  Weekly moisturizing masques will keep your skin soft and supple and will reduce fine lines and signs of aging.

NORMAL/COMBINATION SKIN

Your skin has an even tone, and is not overly dry or oily.  From time to time you many experience oiliness on your chin, nose and forehead or dryness on your cheeks, lips and around your eye contour area.  To keep the condition of your skin even and toned, a good skin care routine including cleansing and moisturizing is a must.

OILY SKIN

Your skin is shiny, has visible pores and is prone to spots and blemishes.  Make-up seems to slide off your skin as soon as it is applied.  Oily skin has the benefit of not showing lines easily, but need to be maintained to prevent breakouts and to control shine.

SENSITIVE SKIN

Your skin is  delicate with fine pores and can be easily irritated and prone to redness.  Sensitive skin is often genetic and can also react to poor diet, changes in weather, hormonal imbalance and certain cosmetic products.

Come in to Bella Forza and experience what beauties and international celebrities of all ages have known for over half a century - you can have beautiful skin and keep skin beautiful by having regular facials, healthy diet and using organic skin care.

Building Blocks of Beauty for Stem Cell Treatments

As we enter 2014, I'm excited by the possibilities the new year presents.  Like most people, I look forward to making some positive changes in the coming year.

One resolution is to eat cleaner.  I am a firm believer in the you are what you eat concept, so I am hoping my overall wellness will benefit from healthier eating habits.

Another resolution is to continue to run for exercise and to clear my mind as often as I can.  My goal is to make it a priority to take time for myself, focus on healthy outlets, and surround myself with others who are positive influences.

At Bella Forza I have been introducing Stem Cell treatments.  In order to experience a youthful "glow" try Stem Cell treatments and products.  These products leave the skin looking and feeling younger.

 Stem Cells have become all the rage because of their super age-defying powers.  "The growth factors found in stem cells provide the messaging molecules necessary to trigger collagen and elastin production.  This provides the basis for healthier and younger looking skin" says American Spa Association.

Because these Stem Cells have antioxidant properties that protect the human skin from damage and deterioration.  Plant Stem Cells are most commonly used in skincare.

When used in skincare, plant stem cells promote healing, fighting against free-radical damage, delaying biological aging.  Plant stem cells are 100 percent free from herbicides and pesticides.  Also, farming is not required, so no significant contribution to greenhouse gases is produced from this process.  No preservatives are used.

In addition, other ingredients, such as peptides, vitamins, and hyaluronic acid can also increase a product's effectiveness.  While plant stem cell treatments can be beneficial to most skin types and conditions, they are primarily targeted to aging skin.  All skin begins to age, and collagen is lost with pores getting larger.  Stem Cells keep skin young and healthy.

Preparation:

Cut the avocado and scoop out the creamy flesh onto a clean bowl.  Crack an egg, add the egg white and lemon juice to the pulp, and whisk it.

Cleanse your face with a mild face wash or cleansing milk and gently apply the paste onto your face and neck, and message well.

Wear the mask for at least 20 minutes or until it dries.  Rinse off with warm water and pat your skin dry.

Bella Forza skin provides effective skin care solutions that target every skin concern.

Sensitive Skin Remedy-Anti-Aging treatment

Most people will suffer from some sort of skin sensitivity-either long-term or short-term at some point  throughout their life.  Several factors or combinations of factors may cause skin sensitivities and reactions, including aging, hormones, ingredient allergies, illnesses, medications and environmental conditions.

Sensitive skin is less of a skin type and more of a condition, resulting in signs of inflammation, reactivity to touch, dryness, and the appearance of rashes, papules or pustules.  

Aging:  The changes t hat often accompany the aging process include dryness, wrinkle development, loss of elasticity, appearance of veins and thinning of the skin.  Most aging skin is vulnerable to sensitivities because of the aggressive treatments and products that were used when the skin was younger.  

To prevent aggravating sensitive aging skin, treatments should be gentler, in order to avoid causing inflammation and rashes.  Because the skin is thinner and tends to absorb liquids quickly, enzymes should be used instead of liquid peel products in order to avoid possible adverse reactions because they penetrate at a slower pace.

Products that contain a less aggressive level of potency of anti-aging ingredients should be chosen for sensitive skin.  Hydration is also key:  ingredients including hyaluronic acids and ceramics are beneficial.

Bella Forza has a fantastic Hyaluronic Acid Face Mask Facial that will instantly restore your skin to its youthful glow.  Come in for a FREE complementary consultation and see how Bella Forza can help you achieve all your skin needs.

Warm regards, ciao

What to do with your left over Apples from making Apple pie?  Make yourself a beautiful easy Apple facial mask.

Apples are good for the skin because of their natural fruit acids, which help remove old skin cells, plus they contain Vitamin A, Iron and calcium.

Ingredients:

1/2 Apple
1 tablespoon warm Milk
1 Egg Yolk
1 tablespoon pure Oatmeal (optional, but recommended)

Preparation:

Puree the Apple.  Add the warm milk and mix until blended.  Mix the egg yolk in and blend all three ingredients together.  If you see that your mixture is too runny, add a bit of oatmeal to make it more spreadable.  Apply the mixture on your face and leave it on for 10-15 minutes.

What is Australian washed Blue Bentonite Clay?

The holidays are almost here and I am so happy to announce that my new products have just arrived!

For Acne I have a Dry Face Mask Concentrate that you make at home.  This mask uses Australian washed Blue Clay.  Australian washed Blue clay is made up of Bentonite clay (also referred to as montmorillonite) and is excellent for drawing toxins and impurities from the skin.  Our Bentonite is derived from Australian volcanic ash, is gray in color, and has a very fine, smooth texture, making it perfect for facial skin care.  We use it in our Chamomile & White Willow Bark Dry Face Mask Concentrate for it's purifying properties and also because Bentonite is also one of the most absorbent and best clays for clearing acne.

What are the benefits of Australian washed Blue Bentonite Clay?

Bentonite clay is made up of negatively charged ions, which when hydrated, work to draw out positively charged toxins from your skin.  This purification also makes Bentonite a gentle cleanser for skin and hair by naturally removing impurities and washing away dirt.  In addition, Bentonite swells when hydrated.  Like a sponge absorbing water, Bentonite works to absorb excess oils from your skin.

Cosmetic clays have a long history of skin  care use, and because of the many benefits of Bentonite (detoxifying, cleansing, purifying), Australian washed Blue Clay has a place in our line of natural skin products.

The Fountain of Youth - Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)

The summer is officially over and now is the time to focus on what is new for the Fall to help your skin look its best.  Although  the search continues for the "fountain of youth", advancements in Skin Care have resulted in progress toward its discovery.  

Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) was founded in 1986 by 2 scientists who received a Nobel Prize in medicine for their work.  As EGF is applied to the skin, tissue regeneration begins.  The production of natural EGF significantly slows when ultraviolet (UV) light is present, slowing the process of the body to heal itself.  Because the skin is exposed to UV light during daylight hours, topical growth factors become useful tools in reversing the harmful effects of these rays.  EGF stimulates cell growth and can accelerate skin healing.  When applied to aging skin, it will increase the rate of skin renewal, which decreases with age.

Come into Bella Forza for a free consultation and learn how EGF can help you realize your own skin anti-aging process.

Remember,  beautiful skin is for everyone.

Cordiali saluti

Acne treatment tips-Seaweed Acne Mask with Algae Extract

Acne is a tremendously embarrassing and burdensome problem.  There are a few natural and easy way that you can do to help heal your acne.  You should notice a difference in about 4 weeks.  

Honey Mask- this can be applied to your face one or twice weekly, Honey has antibacterial properties so it is great for disinfecting and healing minor blemishes.  It is also gentle on sensitive skin.

Wash twice a day with acne soap-this is a sulfur based soap specially designed for acne.  It is important to remember to be extremely gentle to your skin when washing so do not scrub or use a rough cloth.  Overwashing your skin will actually stimulate your sebaceous glands to produce more sebum, which would increase your acne.

Keep your hair off your face-If you have long hair or bangs, pull your hair off your face.  Your hair also contains oils which could contribute to your breakout.

Eat Carrots for beta-carotene (Vitamin A)-Vitamin A strengthens the protective tissue of the skin and actually prevents acne.  It helps reduce sebum production.

Avoid wearing makeup-Leaving makeup products on your skin contributes to clogging your pores, causing more pimples and blackheads.

Do Not Pick or Squeeze your blackheads and pimples-This action will increase your sebum production and might lead to infection.

Wash your pillow case every other day-Remember your pillow absorbs the oils from your skin.

Always visit a licensed skin specialist or aestitician for a personalized regime that will fit into your lifestyle.

Exfoliate for Bright, Smooth & Radiant Skin-using AHA

Here is some mid-summer advice to brighten your skin.  Without question, most  everyone can benefit from daily use of a well formulated AHA  (alpha hydroxy acid such as glycol and lactic acids) or BHA (beta hydroxy acid, also known as salicylic acid) product.  Each provides multiple benefits, including fighting signs of aging and breakouts!

How Exfoliation Works:  Skin naturally shreds billions of skin cells each day.  When this natural shredding slows or stops due to sun damage, dry skin, genetics or different skin disorders, the results are unmistakable:  Dull, Dry or Flaky skin; Clogged Pores; Blemishes; White Bumps; and uneven skin tone.  Using an exfoliant steps in to help put everything in balance again.  When you get rid of built-up skin cells you can undo clogged pores, stop breakouts, smooth out wrinkles, even make dry skin become a thing of yesterday so you can age later.

Bella Forza Skin offers an AHA Exfolliant which will give you a brilliant option for exfoliating the surface of the skin.  This will stimulate Collagen and firm the skin.  AHA's are preferred for sun-damaged and dry skin because they exfoliate on the surface of skin and have the added benefit of also improving moisture content.

BHA Exfolliant is preferred for oily, acne-prone skin and for treating blackheads and white bumps because BHA can get through the oil that's clogging your pores.  This will also work for sensitive or reddened skin.  Not everyone with Rosacea can tolerate an exfoliant, but it is quite likely you'll see less redness and a smoother, more even skin tone with fewer breakouts.

Come visit Bella Forza for a free compliementary consultation to discuss your Exfoliant options and set up a private and personalized regime for you to achieve your  best skin  outcome and achieve the Bella Forza "GLOW", that many clients have already experienced.  

Now that you know the many ways an AHA or BHA exfoliant can improve your skin, all that's left to do is find the one that works best for you!  Let Bella Forza show you how your skin can be brighter, smoother, more radiant skin that will look younger, as well as free from acne, blackheads and bumps.

Remember beautiful skin is for everyone!

Don't get the Summertime Skin Blues-Hydrate your skin!

The summertime heat is here and you need to keep your skin cool and hydrated.  Remember to drink plenty of water while enjoying the beach and walking through the city streets.  One way to combat the harsh effect of heat is to come to Bella Forza for a relaxing custom hydrating hyaluronic acid serum treatment using gel peptide  crystals.  This treatment can be used alone or combined with a hydrating vitamin C serum.

Dark spots on the skin can occur due to excess sun exposure and cause hyperpigmentation.  Bella Forza offers a serum that contains Vitamin C and kojic acid to help lighten up and fade these spots in a few weeks.

Both serums can be used alone or under make-up to give the skin added moisture and improve the skins elasticity.  

Visit Bella Forza before you go away on that special vacation or summer wedding.  Contact me for a free consultation and we can plan for you to have that individual "Bella Glow".  I look forward to seeing all of your beautiful faces soon and creating for you a personal skin regimen and treatment plan.

Calorosi saluti e abbracci e baci

June 2013-HAPPY SUMMER!!!

June is the month which starts the official summer vacation.  The kids are out of school on summer vacation and life turns to being outside either by the pool, beach or just lounging.  Please remember not to forget or neglect your skin.

Think about some skin tips:
l.  Try to choose a lighter daily moisturizer and add a daily serum before applying your moisturizer for some 
     added protection.

2.  Remember to continue to exfoliate 1-2 times a week in order to keep your pores clear of dirt and skin 
      debris.

3.  Always wear SPF 30 daily.  Hats and sunglasses always!

Have fun, remember beautiful skin in the summertime is a challenge but it can be achieved without too much
work, if you put a little effort into taking extra special care and protection against the sun.

Ciao

Warm Regards,

Bella

Spring Forward: Spring color is a Blissful Balance

Like a twist of lemon in your iced tea, Spring is the season for you to renew and refresh your look.  Try to express yourself in a new way.  This Spring, clothes lighten up in tone and texture including makeup in lips, eyes and cheeks.  The most important focus this Spring is bare, luminous clean skin.

Serums are extremely popular and cost effective to add to your daily regime.  Hyaluronic serums prep the skin for makeup by pulling moisture from the air for an immediate smoothing effect.

Our philosophy at Bella Forza is to develop timely effective treatments that give you an exceptional  experience. " Riparare"  is an Italian word meaning to "repair".   Our products are the latest in skin brightening science using innovative marine biotechnology and peptide research to rapidly reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone while battling hyper-pigmentation due to the sun, acne scars and  hormonal changes.
Today anti-aging is more than just reducing the appearance of wrinkles.  The entire complexion is addressed including skin's tone, clarity and color.  

Remember, Beautiful Skin is for Everyone!!!!

Warm Regards,

Sherry

Helping you look and feel your best this Spring!

Welcome to my first monthly blog!  

It's hard to believe that we are already 3 months into 2013.  February created Fall Fashion Week and the amazing Oscars.  Seeing all those beautiful stars on the red carpet and the runway is a fantastic motivator for taking care of ourselves with health and beauty care and treatments.  Anti-Aging and dry sagging skin has to be on the high priority list for restoration and repair.   We do want to feel energetic, sexy and have that special skin glow.

Stress affects how your skin feels and looks.   It is really important to try to develop a simple natural beauty routine to help tighten, tone and rejuvenate the skin.  This time of the month is a great opportunity to get your skin in shape with a good cleansing program followed by daily serum and moisturizer with SPF.

At Bella Forza only organic and antioxidants are used  because they are essential in keeping your skin in the best possible  condition by moisturizing the skin preventing it from being dry and flaky.  The other benefit of antioxidants is to counter the effects of free radicals, as they prevent damage to skin cells and to repair the damaged skin.

I look forward to seeing all of you and your beautiful faces soon.  Remember beautiful skin is for everyone!

Warm Regards,

Sherry
