skincare routines | skincare products denver

While we often think about our skin type when it comes to skin care routines, where we live is just as important. Denver’s high altitude means the sun’s rays have a more intense effect on our skin, which already struggles under the dry conditions that sap the natural moisture from it. Making sure your skin … Read more

2016: Commit to Your Skin!

Since the beginning of the new year, almost every person I know is on some sort of cleanse. They have strictly prohibited the following from their diet: alcohol, caffeine, sugar, wheat, dairy, etc. While I respect their ambitious goals, personally I find them hard to keep! This year, commit to your skin: I like to set myself up for success by taking care of my skin, which not only feels like I am doing something good for myself and is a goal that reaps rewards, but it’s also a treat. Not only is it relaxing and beneficial, but I love the ladies at Vasu. It’s a triple whammy in one. Unless, of course, you are getting hair removal – it may not be exactly relaxing, but the results make you feel sexy and smooth.

A Resolution to Keep: Commit to Your Skin

It is not too late to commit to your skin for 2016. It will pay off for years to come. A peel now and then, a laser here and there, a series of IPL’s, it makes for smooth, beautiful, wrinkle free, spot free, hair free, luscious skin. Now that’s a resolution I can keep! How about you?

The Specials Keep Comin’

And look out for the VASU specials. Every month Vasu offers packages at a discount. Whether you are doing chemical peels, a silk peel (I just had one and LOVED it!), or hair removal, it’s always best to buy in packages. Not only are you getting a discount (and who doesn’t like a bargain) but all of these services work best when you do them in a series. So you are committed to taking care of your skin and to getting a deal.

Simple Tips to Add to your New Years Resolutions

WATER! WATER! WATER! I know you’ve heard this a million times. So just do it! Drink 1/2 your weight in ounces. If you are 120lbs, that means drink 60 ounces of water. Water should be your BFF. It is what is sustaining you. Did you know that by the time you are thirsty you are already dehydrated? This is one of the single, easiest, free things you can do for your skin, body, health and mind so drink up! In fact, make it a habit to drink a large glass of water first thing in the morning before anything else. This not only helps your skin but helps your brain to respond quicker throughout the day.

Take Omega oils and watch your skin glow. Fish oil is amazing. When I take fish oil consistently, I notice two things immediately. My skin glows and my finger nails grow like weeds. I am always amazed that one daily tablespoon works such wonders.

Lastly, get good skin products for your daily home regime!! I can not stress this enough. I have used products for as long as I can remember and it has paid off. I continue to invest in this simple daily routine and love both the Epionce and Revision line! At night, I use the Epionce Intensive Nourishing Cream. Damn that stuff is good. Especially in this dry climate. During the day, I love Revisions Intellishade Broad-Spectrum SPF 45. This stuff rocks! You all know how important sunscreen is. This is the bomb. Try it. You won’t be disappointed.

Skincare Products for Summer Travel

Summer travel can wreak havoc on your skin if you are not fully prepared for the climate at your destination. High quality skin products are certainly not available in every country or many exotic locations. There is nothing worse than riding a camel in Egypt, basking in the sun in Bali or skiing in New Zealand without proper sunscreen!! In addition, dry, recirculated airline air, pollution, harsh and different climates are all venues which may cause hyper-pigmentation, acne, dry, uneven skin tone and premature aging. No one wants to return from their summer vacation with acne and extra wrinkles!

Today, many modern travelers travel with only carry on luggage. This creates unique and interesting dilemmas on the selection of skin products which meet the 3oz travel requirements.

As an experienced international traveler, I always travel with the following items: an exfoliating cleanser such as Epionce, Lytic Cleanser. A good cleanser is important to cleanse the skin of pollutants, remove sunscreen and reduce your chance of travel acne. Another beneficial skin care product for traveling is a stable form of Vitamin C to protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun, fight free radicles from pollution and for overall anti-aging. I recommend Revision Skin Care 30% Vitamin C but please be careful of excess heat. My final daily skincare step is always sunscreen which contains a moisturizer and peptides such as, Intellishade by Revision Skincare. If I was on a deserted island with only one product choice it would definitely be my Intellishade as one application provides SPF, moisturizer, anti-aging peptides and a light, sheer tint which blends in with most skin types. I also enjoy traveling with my iS Clinical Active Serum for my night-time anti-aging treatment and finish off with a high quality moisturizer, such as Revision’s Firming Night Treatment. If size permits I travel with a waterproof sunscreen for my active days, such as EltaMD UV Sport SPF 50.

In addition to these products, I love using essential oils and my favorite is On Guard by dōTERRA. On Guard is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and fights off germs! I recently used On Guard multiple times a day on a recent trip to India with my two children ages 9 and 11 and we never got sick! I placed one drop of On Guard in their hands while traveling on the Indian trains and instructed the children to rub their palms together and breath it in every so often. I also added On Guard to my running shoes to avoid fungal infections from the humid climate while enjoying the fresh smell!

These seven skin products should fit within your zip lock travel pouch and fulfill most of your skin care needs while traveling. Please note that you may need to put the night-time moisturizer in a smaller container. Feel free to mix and match as according to your particular skin care needs. I highly recommend that you meet with your licensed skin care specialist and discuss your travel plans and specific destination(s).

I would love to hear about your favorite travel skin products! Email Jennifer Fisher, Founder of Vasu Skin Solutions at jennifer@vasuskinsolutions.com.

Good luck and happy travels!

Skin Care: 1-2-3

The skincare industry is booming with products filling shelves in grocery stores, pharmacies, physician offices and even your local farmer’s market! It is easy to become confused, irritated and either purchase nothing at all or too many products doing the same thing. In the end, consumers often feel as if they do not know how to use any of their skincare products!

It is always recommended starting with a skin care analysis from a licensed aesthetician to determine your specific skin care needs. The aesthetician will discuss your primary skin care goals such as anti-aging, reducing pigment, wrinkle reduction, skin tightening, etc. The consultation sets the stage for obtaining information on each client’s lifestyle, eating habits and stress level. A formal skin analysis provides recommendations, products and treatments based on each client and their specific skin care needs.

For those of you who do not have the time for a skin consultation by a licensed aesthetician, please do not worry as I would love to share some of Vasu Skin Solutions’ skin care tips!

To begin with, let’s keep it easy and think in steps of 3! Three steps in the morning and three in the evening.

AM ROUTINE

  1. I typically wash my face every morning with a mild cleanser.
  2. In Colorado, I like to do as much as possible to protect my face from the sun’s harmful rays so, I always use some type of antioxidant such as a Vitamin C serum or lotion (depending on your skin type). Vitamin C contains potent antioxidant properties to protect cells from free radical damage.
  3. The final step in the morning is to protect your skin by using SUNSCREEN. Broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen should be an essential part of your skin care protocol. You can find moisturizing, tinted, non-oily, sunscreen almost anywhere. Find a sunscreen that you like and use it, every day!

PM ROUTINE

  1. We beg you, always wash your face every evening! In the evening, I like to use an active cleanser which contains exfoliating properties such as Salicylic or Glycolic Acids (these are only a couple of examples). Exfoliating improves the texture and tone of your skin and speeds up your skins natural shedding process. Exfoliation also allows for the penetration of anti-aging products rather than sitting on the surface of your skin.
  2. Now is the time to apply an anti-aging product for night time penetration! My favorite anti-aging treatments are products which contain some type of Retinols (basically Vitamin A, please note that products containing high concentrations of Vitamin A should not be used while pregnant or breast feeding – please talk with your physician).
  3. Your last step is to moisturize!

These steps may seem daunting but try to keep it simple, 3 steps in the morning and 3 at night! In the morning cleanse, use an antioxidant and protect; in the evening cleanse, use anti-aging treatment and finish with a moisturizer!
