Fight Aging with Eminence

Fight Aging with Eminence

MARCH 22, 2016

Written By: Karen Young Chester

This is an essential time to embrace the changes in your skin and refocus your skin care routine for a complexion that continues to radiate health and beauty

Raise your hand if you’ve hit (or passed) your 50s and keep your hand up if you’re enjoying your decades with pride! This is an essential time to embrace the changes in your skin. However, like all life stages, the 50s bring new culprits that hold you back from experiencing your best skin. Here’s a quick guide to fight aging with Eminence:

DRY SKIN

Firm Skin Acai Moisturizer is one of the best products for skin care over 50, especially in combating dry skin.  Dry skin issues tend to happen as we age because the skin barrier becomes weaker and can’t repair as easily. This leads to further damage and, eventually, wrinkles. The answer, of course, is to moisturize and there is no better source of hydrating mature skin than the Firm Skin Acai Moisturizer. Rich in shea butter and skin-plumping hyaluronic acid, our Firm Skin Acai Moisturizer virtually erases signs of aging with its delivery of intense hydration.

SLACK SKIN
With age comes a decline of estrogen which affects collagen and elastin production. Without these proteins to give strength and elasticity, skin starts to slacken and hang more loosely. One solution is adding Bamboo Firming Fluid to your skin care routine. Formulated with strengthening agents like bamboo and coconut, this effective serum also includes Natural Retinol Alternative to smooth the appearance of wrinkles, and Swiss Green Apple Stem Cells which reduce the signs of aging. These key ingredients work together to visibly tighten the look of skin and ensure you look younger and fresher.

UNEVEN SKIN TONE
As sun exposure accumulates over the years, age spots tend to appear on mature skin on the cheeks, neck, hands, shoulders and arms. One easy remedy is the Bright Skin Targeted Treatment which uses licorice root extract, punarnava and turmeric to reduce the look of dark spots. By dotting this powerful treatment on individual spots, you can diminish the visible signs of age spots and reduce the look of specific problem areas. Overall, you’ll find your complexion looking brighter and more even in skin tone.

Eminence Organic Skin care has over 100 products to address your skin concerns. If you need more information about Eminence and what it can do for you call or stop in. We will answer whatever questions you may have. Or call to book a facial and experience a variety of the products available and spend time an hour with our skin care specialist. Facials done with Eminence is definitely a buffet for your skin. Aging with Eminence can be a beautiful experience.

VitaSkin™ Targeted Treatments Vs. VitaSkin™ Booster-Serums

Written By: Karen Young Chester

Do you suffer from problem skin, uneven skin tone or aging skin? If so, you’re probably using the VitaSkin™ booster-serums to remedy your skin problems. And if you’re applying these in your regular skin care routine, you may be wondering, “Why do I need VitaSkin™ Targeted Treatments too?” We have three examples that compare Targeted Treatments with booster-serums, and clarify how Targeted Treatments fit into your skin care routine.

Treatment vs Serum

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And just as you apply stain remover only on the soiled areas of your clothes, you dab on your Targeted Treatment to fix contained and specific skin concerns.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TARGETED VS. ALL-OVER

Targeted Treatments focus their laser-like powers on one specific area. Think of it as the difference between a stain remover and a laundry detergent. Sure, you need laundry detergent to get the whole load clean but will it fix the red wine stain on your blouse or the grass stain on your jeans? Just as you pour laundry detergent into the washing machine, a booster-serum applies an all-over solution to your skin care problems. And just as you apply stain remover only on the soiled areas of your clothes, you dab on your Targeted Treatment to fix contained and specific skin concerns.

PORTABLE VS. AT-HOME
Each Targeted Treatment comes in a convenient, slim pump that fits easily into your purse or your back pocket – perfect for your commute or travel. Booster-serums, on the other hand, are dispensed from our elegant glass bottles and designed for your morning and evening application at home. Imagine this difference in the same way that you compare your tablet and your desktop computer. Your tablet is smaller in size and convenient to use on the go whereas your desktop computer is designed for work at home or at the office. Similarly, our easy-to-carry and easy-to-dispense Targeted Treatment is convenient for use anywhere but our booster-serums are best applied in a home or spa setting.

CORRECTIVE VS. PREVENTATIVE & MAINTENANCE
Another difference between Targeted Treatments and booster-serums? Targeted Treatments are corrective in nature – they fix the problems that have already popped up on your skin. Booster-serums, on the other hand, focus on preventing problems and maintaining skin conditions. If your skin has a tendency towards a certain concern, booster-serums help stop the issue from developing and they also keep your complexion healthy and beautiful. Think about choosing a teeth-whitener vs. a toothpaste. The first product actually whitens yellowing teeth while the other product concentrates on preventing teeth from yellowing and keeping your smile sparkling and fresh. In the same way, Targeted Treatments zap the issues that surface while booster-serums help prevent the issues from occurring in the first place.

Add VitaSkin™ Targeted Treatments to your skin care routine today or ask your Éminence Skin Care Specialist to include them in your regular facial treatments.

 

Shop Locally First

SHOP LOCALLY FIRST !!!

It’s Christmas time! It’s Shopping Time! Where should we go? The city…… Saskatoon, Battleford, Lloydminster, Edmonton, Calgary or maybe even Winnipeg? What about Unity? Are the prices in the city better? Not always! The cost of travel and meals, winter driving….. Don’t forget about the inevitable return of gifts either inappropriate, wrong size, broken or missing pieces……  I’ll let you to do the math!   

Have you taken the time to browse through each store in Unity? I have been through most stores in town shopping as well as collecting knowledge to pass onto my spa guests about the unique shopping available in Unity. There are treasures here that will amaze you.

Recently I had women shopping in the spa say, “We don’t have to go shopping in the city….. Among the stores in Unity you have everything the city has.” This lady had gone to the city for socks and was shocked to see the great variety we carry.           Another commented, “I just spent the last 2 1/2 hours shopping in your town…. Now I’m broke!”

Friends, neighbors and people from Unity and surrounding area – the clock is ticking.

Shop local…. Found Treasures, Our Drug Store, Wildeman Sport Store (Tan Jay +) The Resource Center, Bargain Shop, Fields, Guys Furniture, Cinema Satellite, Crystal Clarity, The Co-op, AG Foods, Junction 21 (Western Wear +), Ilene’s Quilting, Country Pantry, Flowers by Joan, Unity Travel Shop, 2nd Avenue Cinema, Home Based Businesses, Hair Dressers, Liquor Stores, Spa City and Sunrise Wellness Spa or buy someone a membership to the Gym, CrossFit, Pilates or Yoga. Don’t forget the dealerships that you rely on throughout the year. No business is an island to itself……            Gift Certificates are available from many local stores and restaurants. We have all worked hard to bring you the best for a local shopping experience. Shopping in Unity is not as hurried as the city and the distance from store to store is minimal. Many businesses partake in Winter Wonderland on December 3 from 6-9 pm to provide you shopping that fits into your busy life.

Be sure to enter your name at participating stores for the “GRAND IN YOUR HAND”.

Shopping locally can put the cash back in your hand.

 

SHOP LOCALLY FIRST AND LAST and we will make it a wonderful experience!

 

Sunrise Wellness Spa’s Transformation!

Our New Look!!!………….. Where are we going from here??

With 35 Years behind us, I have reflected over the many steps of change that have brought us to the edge of retirement. This is a journey and there have been many bends in the road along the way.

When I first started I visited a consulting firm in Edmonton. After many hours of brainstorming I reluctantly removed “Mon-Gee” from my business name, a name that meant a lot to me. “Mon” was used because it represented my father’s surname and “Gee” for Geraldine. However it did not have ‘sales’ appeal. We developed a new marketing plan and expanded the business into a spa. Then came the big change. A computer program would make business more efficient so I embarked on the technology world.

When I first started Pat Welter of Masterhand Designs was launching his career and made me my first sign to set up at #26 Brentwood Trailer Court.

In 2000 when I purchased the police barracks, Pat developed the beautiful blue sign that adorned the front lawn for 15 years. We ventured into new colors at the spa so a great way to start off the new look was a beautiful new sign created by Pat! Pat worked hard and brought color and meaning to the amazing sign that was ready for our 35th Anniversary on August 20th. Paul Marshal; a welder and great friend of Pat’s, said to me that the Spa’s new sign is some of Pat’s best work. We are so proud of it!

We added butterflies and flowers to the spa trademark and chose lavender and pink to bring a calming effect to the ambiance. Kait shared her talent of colors and decor, giving birth to a total new look. We transferred this new vibe of colors and images through-out the treatment rooms in the spa and onto our business cards and brochures.

The Butterfly is the symbol of transformation. A caterpillar spins itself a cocoon and emerges as a beautiful butterfly. This is the feeling we want our clients to have when they leave the spa. We want them to feel new and fresh, with renewed balance and beauty. We want them to feel transformed and invigorated.

I will share the history of the colours that Pat so meticulously shared as he designed the sign. It compliments the healing that colors bring us. The study of color therapy is fascinating.

White represents all colors to create balance and harmony. The Blue is a cooling color and helps relieve inflammation, headaches, and high blood pressure. Brown represents the earth so helps with body stability and grounding. Magenta regulates the adrenaline and heart activity. Violet/Purple stimulates the spleen & white blood cells to increase your immunity & relieve emotional stress. Indigo purifies the blood stream. Yellow strengthens the nerves, stomach, liver, and intestines. It also speeds up the digestion. Orange increases the thyroid, stimulates the lungs, the digestive system and relieves muscle cramps & spasms.

To complete the image Pat has brought new life to our display boards for trade shows and Christmas craft fairs. Our new vertical banner will give a great visual to all who walk by. It will give a lasting impression.

Thank you Pat for your talent here in Unity. Thank you to Kait for sharing your visionary talent.

We will continue to serve you royally with our bountiful spa menu. Be sure to check it out and try something new.
