Dermalogica Training

       
Thursday, August 28th, 2014

Dermalogica TrainingThis week we were so excited to have our Dermalogica training here at Beauty Bridge! The Dermalogica line is super popular with our customers and has many different products to address pretty much any concern one could have. Our trainer, Ariel, was extremely knowledgeable and is both an esthetician and a Dermalogica teacher who teaches at the Institute in New York. She made everything really easy to understand and even gave us some pointers on her favorite product concoctions as the products can be combined in many ways.

The line has eight systems, all made to address concerns of the client that falls in that category and all can be boosted by products from a different range. The line was founded by an esthetician so it focuses on skin health. This means there are no fragrances, mineral oil, chemicals, lanolin or any other ingredients that could compromise the skin or cause allergic reactions. In fact some of the products smell so good you would want to bathe in them!

The most basic system, and the one Ariel suggested we start with, is the Daily Skin Health. The products in the line are the essentials for your everyday skin routine. They keep your skin clean, healthy and moisturized so you can then tackle more intense concerns like aging or breakouts.

The next line is the Age Smart. This line aims to slow down the process of aging before it starts. It has scientifically advanced ingredients that have been proven to stop aging triggers before they start. This line contains retinols, which we all know are the holy grail of ingredients for skin aging, that have been buffered so they do not cause any stinging, peeling or irritation.

The Ultracalming line contains wonderful ingredients like Lavender and Chamomile to soothe the skin and can be used pretty much by anybody but is most beneficial to ultrasensitive skin. We especially loved this line for the wonderful smell and universal usage.

The Medibac and Clear Start lines are both for acne and Ariel said they can both be mixed and matched since sometimes the Medibac line is a little bit stronger than the Clear Start. The Medibac is generally more for adult acne while the Clear Start is for teenage acne. I especially loved the Clearing Booster from the Medibac line because you can add it to any moisturizer and it automatically makes it an acne fighting product.

The Chroma-White line is truly wonderful. It brightens any pigmentation without being harsh or damaging the skin which can lead to premature aging. It does not bleach or lighten the skin, rather brightens it so it is suitable for all skin colors and types. With this system however we were told you have to be very patient since pigmentation is one of the harder things to get rid of in the skin.

Dermalogica also has bodycare products, suncare and moisture tints, all made to compliment the effects you are getting from your skincare products.

We truly enjoyed our training with Ariel and learned a lot about this wonderful line. We can now diagnose and make skin recommendations to all of our wonderful customers and maybe do a little shopping for ourselves!

Best Gym Classes for A Bikini Body

Best Gym Classes for A Bikini BodyWhen summer rolls around, everyone wants to look great. The ability to put on a bikini and look absolutely hot is one of the underrated simple pleasures of life. Achieving it, however, can be a bit more difficult. Despite what television advertisements might tell you, there is no such thing as spot reduction – to lose weight and get toned, you must work your entire body at once. Here are some of the best classes for doing so.

1. Zumba

Zumba is a fun, upbeat way of losing weight. After all, who doesn’t enjoy dancing? However, in this case, the dance will work your entire body from head to toe. Zumba’s frequent, high energy movements will whip the average person into a sweat in no time at all, particularly targeting the glutes, legs, and core.

2. Cycling

Spinning classes are one of the more intensive workouts available. Not only do they test physical stamina, but they tone the legs and thighs in a way that few other classes can hope to do. However, cycling classes also provide one of the most intense cardio workouts anyone could hope to get. Attending these two to three times per week will yield results very quickly.

3. HIIT

HIIT stands for high intensity interval training. This is the sort of exercise a person could do on their own; periods of all-out exertion interspersed with normal exercise. For instance, you jog for two minutes on a treadmill, then go flat out for one minute, then jog for two more minutes before going all out again. This intensity works the body out and burns fat very quickly, but also cuts down the amount of time you need to spend in a gym. HIIT will leave you completely exhausted, but also satisfied.

Any of these three classes will yield results, but it will take time. Begin working out around two months prior to summer; you can expect to reasonably lose around 2 pounds of fat per week without the loss of any muscle. Remember, exercise is just one part of it – you need to maintain a proper diet, as well.

It has been really hectic here at Beauty Bridge lately and there is lots of work to be done but I have to say I have been having a hard time concentrating on anything but the new Spring/Summer 2013 makeup and nail collections! Our buyer is so awesome! From GloMinerals to Too Faced to Deborah Lippmann I have a feeling this season will be the best so far! To make matters worse I have 750 BBVIP reward points that will get me a pretty hefty discount. And even though that may seem awesome it also means that this weeks’ paycheck may be devoted to my new spring and summer makeup wardrobe! Who needs lunch when you could have lipstick?

And lately it seems that a lot of our customers agree with me. Our international orders are skyrocketing and our domestic ones have been following suite. Our new 24 hour customer service agents can’t keep up with all the product questions and requests. Everybody is primping and prepping for spring and summer and come fall they will be thankful because all those points will add up just in time for the holidays. As far as our store is concerned, we have been doing some spring cleaning and it looks so amazing with all the new collections on display. If you haven’t already, please stop by and check out what we have. Our knowledgeable staff will be able to help you
