The Eyes Have it!

The skin around the eyes is a huge problem area, and one of the first things I notice on a person. Probably because I notice mine changing!

The skin around the eyes:
  • is the thinnest on your body
  • has few oil glands
  • has 14 muscles just to open and close each eye
  • covers a complex capillary network that provides nutrients and oxygen
  • houses delicate nerves that control quick changes like rapid swelling during an allergy attack
  • has a protective barrier that is damaged by tears
  • is susceptible to dark circles from sun exposure, intake of certain medications, stress, illness, lack of sleep or excess pigmentation
  • becomes puffy from excess fluid caused by allergies, your period, sleeping, pregnancy or even increased salt intake
  • begins to sag and lose firmness due to gravity
What can you add to protect this skin? There are so many, but let me know you a few of my favorites!


Light and non-greasy daytime eye creme designed to brighten, target puffiness and ease fine lines. 

ESTHETICIAN TIP: "After months of squinting under sunny skies, a lot of clients complain about aging eyes. Apply Multi-Task Eye Creme every AM to brighten, firm and moisture." 

Product Benefits:
  • Targets the signature signs of eye aging
  • Brightens dark undereye circles
  • Moisturizes to ease fine lines
  • Helps skin feel firmer

A great retail product!


The modalities of this painless and safe Eye Master beauty device features a uniquely deep stimulating effect with Red LED light which can promote the regeneration of collagen, tighten skin and improve skin tone. 

The five functions include:
  1. EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation): The EMS current stimulates the muscle tissue very gently causing warmth and secondary muscular movement that helps regenerate new collagen, improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and leave the skin looking smoother, more elastic, and taut. 
  2. Mesoporation/Mesotherapy: “Mesoporation” is a combination of mesotherapy and electroporation which is widely used as mesotherapy without a needle in Europe. It helps achieve a high level of product penetration into the skin
  3. Electroporation: electroporation is an Enhanced Product Diffusion method which augments product penetration deep into the skin. The macromolecular components of anti-aging ingredients such as collagen and hyaluronic acid are generally too large to penetrate into the deep layers of the skin.
  4. RF (Radio Frequency): the premise behind RF is the electrical energy tends to follow the shortest distance between two electrodes (positive and negative). When electricity runs through living tissue, the high energy flow generates heat bringing blood circulation, lymphatic drainage and firming. 
  5. Red LED (Light Emitting Diode) Therapy: the Red LED Light Therapy function penetrates the skin surface 8-10mm and helps stimulate fiber blast activity, increase collagen production, rejuvenate skin tissue, smooth skin texture, improve skin tone, and accelerate blood circulation.
Treat your clients' puffy, tired eyes with this fun masquerade inspired, eco-friendly pink gel eye mask made from biodegradable TPU material. 

Usage: Cool in the refrigerator and use during or after facial treatments. Warm in a pan of water for a relaxing and calming experience. 

Tip: Gift these after treatment to your clients!

Night Time Skin Care

Sleep is essential for proper body and mind function and plays a vital role in cell repair and regeneration. Many tend to focus on what goes on your skin during the day to help protect from UV exposure, free radicals and maintaining moisture. How focused and educated are your clients on their night time skin care routine? The most common routine seems to be makeup removal, quick wash and maybe a spot treatment for acne or under eye cream before hopping into bed. 

Why not take it to the next level for clients with a product that can help retain moisture, smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leave your skin looking youthful and rested....all while they sleep!

Bioelements Sleepwear is a powerful overnight cream that can be used on dry to combination skin and is packed with the youth restoring goodness of calcium, retinol, peptides and cranberry seed oil. Clients have seen noticeable results in a short period time and all they have to do is remember to put it on before bed. Easily added into any night time routine, there is even a formula just for the hands

The Secret Power Of Balms!

What do you associate a balm with? Lying on a beach or yacht somewhere exotic, not a cloud in the sky with a balmy breeze? Sounds good to me! I'm also a fan of skin balms, they can be an incredible multi-tool.

Many balms are made from natural product like the Green & Good balms by Eco Fin. A favorite of technicians and clients alike, Alchimie Forever has two balms to love. Formulated by a Swiss dermatologist the line is also cruelty free and vegan friendly - dermatologist formulated, tested and kind to our animal friends - what a combo from a company!

Moor Spa has you covered with a balm from your eyes and lips, to a soothing tension balm, and a lot in between!

From muscle pain relief and skin soothing to beard care and under eye lightening, balms are easy to use and effective!
