SST Mineral Makeup

SST Cosmetics is based in Saskatoon and quickly taking over the Canadian beauty market with their high quality mineral based products that enhances ones natural beauty without harmful ingredients. Sharon Sharpe-Titus, Founder of SST Cosmetics puts the health of the makeup artist, stylist and consumer first, all while performing at the highest standards. Each product comes in a sexy, yet sophisticated, high fashion black packaging with a richly pigmented formula.

SST formulations use the highest quality minerals from around the world. These minerals are finely milled before ingredients are added to the minerals. These ingredients are what take the minerals from a loose powder form to a pressed, liquid, gel or cream form.

PARABEN FREE – Parabens are used as preservatives in many cosmetics and personal care products. Parabens have been found to weakly mimic estrogen in animal studies due to the fact that parabens easily penetrate the skin. This raises health concerns because of the link between estrogen and breast cancer. SST has made a choice to use paraben free formulations. High levels of antioxidants help to preserve our product in the same manner that parabens would.

FREE RADICALS – Free Radicals are naturally occurring particles in the body associated with accelerated aging and an increased risk of major diseases. Exposure to pollution, smoking and excess sunlight increases the number of free radicals in the blood. Potent antioxidants found in many of the ingredients in the SST formulations add to the belief that antioxidants not only promote good health but also make you look younger.

SST Tinted Primer & Moisture Kick is a 3 in 1 BB cream formulated with a unique blend of vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, nourishing red seaweed extract and tourmaline. It helps to even out skin’s texture and tone, minimizing the appearance of enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, while keeping skin moisturized and reducing redness. It can be worn alone or underneath your favourite foundation or powder. It is lightweight and has almost a silky consistency that glides over the skin with ease and offers medium coverage. It blends beautifully whether using a foundation brush or fingers.

SST CC Cream offers a breakthrough with colour correcting foundation and concealer in one. It offers medium to full coverage in a mousse like texture that glides over the skin like silk. Continued use helps to diminish the appearance of uneven skin tone and pigmentation due to the powerful extracts of tomato and cabbage. They are suitable for all skin types and now available in 4 self-adjusting shades.

SST Skin Perfecting Balm is a weightless colorless primer which helps smooth away fine lines and minimize pores all while healing skin imperfections. Blends of Vitamin C & A, Tea Tree and Chamomile for antiseptic heal and soothe the skin. The perfecting balm cuts shine and controls oil.

How to Stay Healthy Start With Your Skin Here at the Sunrise Wellness Spa!

How to Stay Healthy? You Start with Your Skin!

 Our skin is the largest organ of our body and the fastest growing. It needs to be clean and free of dead skin cells to function at its best. Our skin weighs 16% of our body weight; approximately 8lbs. It covers 22 Sq Ft. Your skin cells go through a 28 day cycle and as you age the cell regeneration process slows down to approximately 37 days.

There is no other organ that is more actively engaged in discharging impurities from the body than the skin; it is a close relative with the lungs and kidneys.

I introduced dry brushing into the spa and added it on our spa menu to give a natural choice to skin health.

In the beginning I had skin brushing as a stand-alone treatment that was offered in Europe. We have now added the Dry Brushing treatment to all of our Detoxing Body Treatments because of the amazing health benefits that it has.

Dry Brushing Health Benefits Are:

  • sloughs off dead skin cells that may cause skin irritation and health issues over time if not dealt with
  • encourages skin cell renewal and helps skin pore functions- sweat and oil glands
  • enhance blood circulation
  • lymphatic drainage
  • alleviate the fibrous nodules around fat cells, which is what we call cellulite. it forms do vein and lymph congestion.
  • strengthens the Bioenergy System- vital chi flow is essential to prevention and the cure of diseases.

Bruce Berkowsky, N.MD developed the Vital Chi Skin Brushing system that stimulates the lymphatic system and calms down the nervous system.  This is the system that we use and the direction in which you brush is very important.

I was first introduced to Dry Brushing when I took my training for Body Treatments by my German teacher… I have experienced this treatment many times since then. I found that it helped to relax and take the stress load off the nervous system and my psoriasis was much calmer as well. It is a treatment that I will continually do for myself as well as for my clients.

We do European Mud Wraps to detox your body to bring renewed balance. Fall is a great time of the year to get a Body Wrap. The Dry Brushing sloughs off all the dead or damaged skin cells from the summer sun and the rich nutrients of the Moor Mud will hydrate, heal and replenish so you have happy, healthy, glowing skin! Our skin is our largest organ and it needs a little TLC so we can age gracefully.
