Refreshing tips for the face, body, and hair

Refreshing tips for the face, body, and hair. How do we deal with an uneven tone, fine lines, dull complexion, and dehydration of the skin and hair after the holidays? So, Let’s see Refreshing tips for the face, body, and hair with


Step # 1 Deep cleaning

The renewal of the facial skin begins with the obvious process: the exfoliation. Two to three times a week we use a scrub to remove dead cells and sebum that especially in the summer months accumulate in-depth. Then, apply a detoxification mask and deep cleansing with activated carbon, to reduce the appearance of pores and at the same time prepare the skin for the continuation of its treatment.

Step # 2 Peeling

To get a glowing look we do peeling with acids, such as glycolic acid. It is one of the top choices recommended by dermatologists to enhance the glow and the catalyst for youthful skin. In the past, such treatment could only be done by a dermatologist. But now we can get cosmetics with up to 10% glycolic acid, as well as moisturizing and soothing agents so that we can apply them at home with spectacular results: dead cells are removed, while cell renewal is accelerated in every layer of the skin.

The procedure: After the evening cleansing of the face, apply a peeling product with glycolic acid, avoiding the eye and lip area. Wait 5 minutes for it to be absorbed in depth and continue with the serum and/or night cream. We let it work while we sleep. Day by day the results will impress us.

Step # 3 Regeneration

Moisturized skin looks much better, as the lines and folds are less visible. Hydration begins with a regenerating serum. Ideally we choose an advanced composition with biomimetic ingredients, which copy the functions of youthful skin and stimulate collagen production, as well as antioxidants.

After applying the serum and wait a few minutes until it is absorbed, apply the moisturizer. Multivitamin compositions with lipids such as shea butter and anti-aging oils neutralize the oxidative stress that the skin has suffered due to the sun and give comfort and elasticity.

Tip: “For even more impressive results, put on a moisturizing night mask before going to bed. Its advanced composition allows the skin cells to retain moisture and at the same time helps in the regeneration of the tissues “advises the beautician Mary Filippaiou.

Step # 4 Sun protection

The fact that the holidays are over does not mean that we stop using sunscreen. Just as acid therapies require its use. After all, photoaging is 80% due to sunlight. Special formulas with high SPF and antioxidants will adequately protect the skin from oxidative stress.

Step # 1 Exfoliation

With the systematic use of sunscreen in summer, sweat, and sebum, the pores of the skin close, resulting in rough and dull. A good exfoliation will remove dead cells from the surface layers and clog the pores. In addition, the process activates the micro-circulation and expels toxins from the body.

The process: With a body brush we make large circular movements on dry skin, starting from the bottom up. We suggest a brush with a long handle to reach inaccessible areas of the back. Alternatively, on wet skin, after the shower, take a handful of body scrub, enriched with antioxidants, anti-aging ingredients, and essential oils and exfoliate by doing the same movements.

Step # 2 Detox shower gel

If you have a bathtub, add 1 teaspoon of Epsom salts and 1 teaspoon of baking soda to lukewarm water. Optionally add 10 drops of ginger essential oil that stimulates the skin’s metabolism. We enjoy our bubble bath for at least 20 minutes. Then rinse the skin and wipe gently. Optionally, lie down and cover with a blanket to sweat and eliminate more toxins.

Step # 3 Hydration

One of the most noticeable side effects of the sun and alcohol on the skin is dehydration. So after exfoliation and detox bath, apply an intensive nourishing cream or body butter with vitamins, antioxidants, and lipids. For extra hydration, mix the cream with body oil. This will give an extra radiance to the skin while emphasizing and prolonging the tan.

Step # 4 Hydration from the inside

In addition to cosmetics, skin cells also need internal hydration. After all, about 70% -75% of our body is made up of water. That is why we make sure to replenish the fluids needed by drinking at least 1.5 liters of water daily and consuming 3-4 servings of fruits and vegetables.

Step # 5 Feet

The feet and especially the heels have suffered from the sand and the sandals. So when we return from vacation, we make an appointment for a professional pedicure in order to completely remove the rough spots and deeply moisturize the soles. In addition, every night before going to bed, we apply a specialized rich foot cream to keep them soft.
Finally, once a week we do a foot bath with salts and essential oils with soothing properties such as chamomile and lavender.


Step # 1 Follow a complete repair program

No matter how many precautions we take and no matter how well we take care of our hair, it will be difficult to avoid damage, especially if it is dyed or we often do hot styling. The color may have faded, the edges have scissors, frizz is more intense. To restore them to their previous or even better condition, we follow the triptych shampoo, conditioner, and mask and choose specialized compositions that strengthen the hair. Ingredients such as biotin, vitamin B5, and arginine restore the health, elasticity, and shine of hair, significantly reducing knots and breakage.

• The shampoo we want to clean and lay the foundations for a healthy scalp.

• Next, apply the mask and leave it on while taking a shower. What we want: A composition thin enough and light enough to be used even on the most durable hair, but at the same time to be able to apply it to the roots, without fear of oiliness.

• Finally, we complete the shampoo with the necessary conditioner that contains super ingredients, such as amino acids and vitamins, which will “lock” in the scales the nutrients of the mask and will make it smooth. Untangling will be easier, knots will be reduced and hair will become soft again.
On the days between baths, we apply a super-oil with vitamins, beeswax, castor oil, and almond oil to the hair, for reconstruction, strength, and protection from scissors. This way our hair will gain volume, length, shine, and a wonderful look.

Step # 2 We do treatments in the hair salon

The technical and professional compositions are more concentrated and rich in ingredients in order to restore the hair to a healthy condition faster. So once or twice a month we visit our hairdresser to do the restructuring treatment he will recommend.

Also, if we intend to do painting, then the previous night we use an intensive nourishing mask or a non-rinsing conditioner and leave it to act while we sleep.
