                     Finding the Diamond in the Rough With our country's political climate, it is important to find happiness and solace in the small things: our community, friendships, families, and ourselves. The world is ever-changing, whether with political leaders, economy, nature, or all of the trends of fashion and beauty. Our next four year will be filled with positive and negative events that will affect all of us. To stay steadfast and calm are some of the most important qualities a person can have. Not to scorn the past or worry endlessly about the future is a continuous lesson to learn. Let’s press on and dust ourselves off from the past few months. It is time to take care of one’s self and the community we belong too.

                     Finding the Diamond in the Rough

With our country's political climate, it is important to find happiness and solace in the small things: our community, friendships, families, and ourselves. The world is ever-changing, whether with political leaders, economy, nature, or all of the trends of fashion and beauty. Our next four year will be filled with positive and negative events that will affect all of us. To stay steadfast and calm are some of the most important qualities a person can have. Not to scorn the past or worry endlessly about the future is a continuous lesson to learn. Let’s press on and dust ourselves off from the past few months. It is time to take care of one’s self and the community we belong too.

        T h e    G o l d e n    R u l e s    o f    S k i n c a r e We probably all think we know them already, but they’re just so important it bears repeating! Rule 1 Use products for your skin type.  This may require a consultation with an expert.  One product does NOT fit all!  Most skincare lines have different products for different skin types.  Our very own esthetician at Glow West, Sherry, would be happy to consult with you to determine the best products for your individual skin type. Rule 2 Cleansing If you start with the right cleanser, all of you other products will do their jobs better.  Cleansing daily will remove dirt, dead skin cells, and leftover make-up so your pores don’t get clogged. Rule 3 Eyes Pay special attention to the eyes.  The skin around your eyes is ten times finer than the skin around the rest of the face.  So spend a little extra time and money to get an eye-specific cream will definitely pay off in the end.  Trust us, your future self will thank you for treating this delicate area. Rule 4 Exfoliate Two to three times a week with a gentle but effective exfoliant should keep you glowing.  Exfoliating removes dry, dead skin to get rid of dullness.  Pollutants in the air around us can cause build-up on our skin and proper exfoliation removes the icky, invisible grime.  Exfoliating makes your skin act like a clean slate so it’s better prepared to absorb creams and serums more effectively. Rule 5 Sun Protection This is always the most mentioned because it’s by far the most important.  Daily sun protection is crucial.  If this doesn’t appeal to your vanity let it appeal to your health.  Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States.  It’s also been proven that sun exposure leads to fine lines and wrinkles, as well as spots and discoloration.  It’s never too late to start wearing sunscreen! Rule 6 Nourish and hydrate from the inside out. A common recommendation is to drink up to eight 8-ounce glasses per day.  Following a diet of lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables can also make skin (and hair) appear healthier and more radiant. Nobody’s perfect, we all slip up occasionally. But strive to follow the rules above and your skin will thank you for it!

            Glow West is lucky to have Sherry Tanner as our esthetician.  One facial with Sherry and you will be asking yourself, “Why don’t I do this more often?’
           Sherry uses many Yon-Ka products in her facials and swears by the latest technology of plant-based stem cells.  From these facials, while utilizing the advancements in vitamin-C and hyaluronic acid products, Sherry sees amazing results in skin plumping and hydration.  
         Another type of facial Sherry gives is the NuFace Trinity Firming Facial.  The NuFace device uses micro-current technology which improves facial contour and skin tone while reducing wrinkles.  This facial is like a non-surgical face life.  The NuFace device can then be purchased at Glow West to maintain results at home.
         Call Glow West and book a consultation with Sherry.  She will advise what type of facial will work best for your skin, and you will be so pleased with your results!

                  Say “Sayonara” to Dry Skin I love winter.  I love chunky scarves, hot cocoa on a cold night, and decorating for the holidays.  But what I don’t love about winter is dry, cracked skin (yuck).  Weather can be a huge stress on our skin, but we don’t have to keep covering up just to avoid dryness and irritation. Yu-Be skincare products are hydrating and moisturizing, and have been trusted throughout Asia for generations.  In Japan in 1957, a young pharmacist named Yoshikiyo Nowatari was approached by a woman who had suffered for years from dry, cracked skin. She was tired of using petroleum-based products that were greasy and ineffective.  Yoshikiyo created his Yu-Be lotion: a highly concentrated glycerin-based, vitamin-enriched moisturizing cream that could replenish lost moisture without any oily mess.   World famous mountain climbers and skiers carry Yu-Be products with them to fight against extremely harsh weather and skin conditions.  While we probably won’t be trekking Everest anytime soon, it’s comforting to know how effective and safe Yu-Be skincare is.

                                  Tips for the Perfect Tweeze Trust us when we say there is a big difference between a good pair of tweezers and the drugstore brands.  We’ve tested - and are now obsessed with - the award-winning Tweezerman brand.  With a 25-degree slanted tip, Tweezerman tweezers have the perfect angle for achieving high definition brows like a pro.  Stainless steel tips are durable and easy to clean.  Do not – we repeat: do not touch your tweezers to your brows.  Instead, always work underneath the brow to create the perfect natural arch and to avoid over-plucking. Remember to never yank or tug on hairs, and always pull in the direction of the hair.   Did I say to never touch tweezers to your brows?  Well . . . maybe just that little stray hair. And please don't tell your esthetician I said that.

Let’s face it, facials are marvelous. You get to relax in a comfy bed, listen to zen music, and have a professional apply luxurious creams and serums to your face.  But if you’re like us, you might have a busy job, a hectic commute, playdates at the local playground, and dinners out on the town – which means you probably don’t have the time (or energy) to see your esthetician as regularly as you’d like.  One of our plant and mineral-based skincare lines, REN, has the perfect solution: an at-home, super quick facial that you can use up to 3 times a week.  In this 1-Minute Flash Rinse Facial, Vitamin C penetrates the skin to aid with smoothness and uneven skin tones.  Boswellic acid, also known as mother nature's botox (not kidding), relaxes facial muscles to smooth skin.  Your face will look brighter and healthier after just a single use!  If you only have an extra 60 seconds to spare today, use your time to hydrate and soothe tired, dull skin with REN’s flash rinse facial.

You have fifteen minutes to make your feet look like you care about the event you’re about to go to. What do you do? You missed your pedicure yesterday and your strappy Jimmy’s are calling you. Hopefully you have the emergency kit... 1.  The scrub – Ojai Sugar in Citrus 2.  The paddle 3.  The cuticle pusher 4.  The nail brush 5.  The cuticle oil 6.  The block buffer and emery board 7.  Finally, the Beekman honeyed grapefruit hand and foot lotion to quickly massage in. Remember, no nail trimming! It always makes them look crooked and your manicurist will be so mad to have to paint those nails if they are cut too short. Just quickly file and you’ll be safe. Sometimes you have to fake it till you make it... well, that is until the next pedicure appointment.

1.  The scrub – Ojai Sugar in Citrus

2.  The paddle

3.  The cuticle pusher

4.  The nail brush

5.  The cuticle oil

6.  The block buffer and emery board

7.  Finally, the Beekman honeyed grapefruit hand and foot lotion to quickly massage in.

Remember, no nail trimming! It always makes them look crooked and your manicurist will be so mad to have to paint those nails if they are cut too short. Just quickly file and you’ll be safe. Sometimes you have to fake it till you make it... well, that is until the next pedicure appointment.

It’s almost the end of the season for deconstructed hair and beach waves (even though these styles are still hot for fall with a dark lip). Sure on your wedding day or for a big event you’ll want a more put-together look with each curl in place and no frizz, but is that really prefect beach waves. Here is the secret healthy hair product and a curling iron. First, it’s time to deep condition… The Restore line from Living Proof, or the tried and true Phyto brand has truly hydrating shampoos and conditioners. Next, a good styling product… Get a creamy leave-in…not some oil that won’t create shine for you the next day. Wash the night before.  Leave in Davines creamy milk spray...smells so amazing. Wrap your hair up even if it is a bob. It helps to keep the cuticle down. Final steps… Next morning. A great curling iron. Debatable on what this is but nothing under 50 is worth it unless you only plan to use it once a year. Take only the top crazy section and flatten them out with the iron by wrapping the hair around the whole barrel. This is not suppose to be perfect just enough to show that you mean it. Now for the icing on the top... an oil, now is the time to splurge with a little Davines oil to piece it up and make it 100% healthy. Oh, the scent and the beautiful hair. Yay!  BTW if you are stick straight you may need to wrap your hair in a twist to get some movement...or a perm.

Living in Southern California my entire life I have seen many trends weave in and out, but one thing is for sure: California has its own twist. Our easy breezy interpretations of trends make California have its own style. Never stuffy and never overdone. The latest trend of natural beauty was basically created in this state. Yes, we have studied all different skin care and hair care, honoring countries that take beauty to another level. But we have learned how to make it truly our own.  A perfect example of old world traditions meeting new school beauty is the Prive hair care line.  Founded by Laurent D., a reputable French hairstylist, and now a staple in California salons.  Tradition is relatively new in this young state, but it is quickly becoming a leading force in wine, food, and the beauty industry. Cheers to all that work hard in this state and stay true to our Californian ways!

Women in their twenties have the freedom to not use too much product.  Their youthful skin has not yet been compromised with sunspots and fine lines.  So staying protected from the sun is of the utmost importance at this age.  I’m never outdoors without bringing along my COOLA SPF 30 lip balm and a tube of SPF 20 Rose Essence Tint to protect from the sun while helping with oil-control and unwanted shine. If you’re heading to the beach this summer, you’ll probably still want to apply a little makeup before hitting the sand with your friends.  Be sure to set your makeup with our SPF 30 Makeup Setting Spray to give your young skin extra protection against sun and sweat!  And don’t forget your travel size Evian facial spray to help you stay cool and fresh-faced all summer long.
