12 mai 2019

New at Skin Care Toronto

LaSpa natural sunscreen SPF 20. SPF 30. SPF 50.

Sun protection is one of the most important things we can do to prevent premature aging, pigmentation or worse, skin cancer.

Using a sunscreen that is labelled Broad Spectrum is critical to protecting your skin from BOTH forms of UV light (UVB and UVA) that can harm your skin, and that can lead to skin cancer.

But unfortunately not all sunscreens created equal. Be aware of the dangers of chemical sunscreen ingredients.

Common ingredients of concern include: Oxybenzone, Homosalate, and Octinoxate. They have been associated with developing mental and reproductive toxicity, allergies and immune-toxicity, all of which is of greater concern because it also enhances skin absorption.

Chemical Sunscreens often contain ingredients that are not only harmful to humans, but not surprisingly to aquatic life and coral reefs. Many countries around the world and some cities have already banned sunscreens containing a list of common chemical sun filters in order to prevent further damage to precious reefs and marine life.

Choose your sunscreen carefully, select mineral sunscreens vs. chemical to protect yourself and your family .

As for us, we chose La Spa mineral product, that delivers everything that you looking for in sun protection and skin care the natural way!

Guinot Lift Summum Facial

20 février 2019

Guinot’s NEW Lift Summum Treatment

Launching February 2019

Guinot is launching a new lifting treatment designed to firm and smooth the delicate skin of the face, neck, and chest (often the first areas to show signs of aging) – offering instant and long-term results.

The Lift Summum is fast-acting and removes dead skin cells, redefines the face contour, and restores radiance in just 50 minutes.

In four steps, the treatment exfoliates and removes dead cells, massages the skin to improve skin elasticity, fills and erases wrinkles, and finishing firming mask, to smooth and lift facial features.                   

STEP ONE – cleansing and double exfoliation

In the first phase of this treatment, papaya extract breaks dead cells away from the skin to facilitate exfoliation. Microparticles of cellulose remove dead skin cells mechanically through friction. Fruit acids accelerate shedding and boost cell renewal.  

 STEP TWOmassage of the face , neck and décolleté

The second phase includes a massage with mahogany bark extract to improve skin elasticity to help counteract slackening, while alaria esculenta seaweed extract helps prevent the appearance of wrinkles.

The massage techniques used for each area (face, neck and décolleté) stimulate the subcutaneous tissue to immediately firm and lift the skin, while the active ingredient-enriched serum helps recreate skin elasticity.

 STEP THREEfiller/eraser

The Anti-Wrinkle Eraser helps even out the skin’s texture, thanks to its two-fold mechanical and biological action. Wrinkles appear diminished; the eye contour, forehead, smile lines and décolleté look smoother.

The third phase embeds hyaluronic acid spherical fillers into wrinkle grooves. The fillers then rehydrate and inflate to fill the wrinkles.

 STEP FOURfirming mask

The fourth and final phase utilizes dynalift and a biotechnological complex to smooth facial features and combat skin slackening by forming a mask that lifts.

The sheet Mask for the Face and cream Mask for the Décolleté firm both the skin and facial features, restoring comfort, radiance and a more youthful appearance.

 After a 50-minutes Treatment: :

- The skin on the face and décolleté is visibly firmer, plumper and lifted.

- Fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away.

- The face is visibly younger-looking.

What is the difference between dry and dehydrated skin

11 mars 2019

What is the difference between dry and dehydrated skin?

The symptoms are similar, but the causes are distinct

Dehydreted Skin:

Is simply lacking water, a specific concern that can affect any skin type(oily, dry, or combination).Dehydrated skin can also be dry, sensitive and even oily.

Symptoms of dehydrated skin:

Occasional pulling, tingling.

Loss of suppleness, sensation of discomfort

Fine lines due to dehydration can also appear more prominent.

As a general rule, skin tends to be more dehydrated in the winter due to climatic conditions and seasonal aggressors like wind, cold, pollution, heating….

Dry Skin:

Unlike dehydrated skin, dry skin can not change its characteristics. Dry skin does not lack water but rather lipids(oil), as a protective film. This is the skin that does not produce enough sebum to maintain its barrier function. Often mistaken for dehydrated skin, people with dry skin using wrong skin care products.

Symptoms of dry skin:

Continuous pulling and skin that is rough to the touch.

There is visible dryness (peeling) and the face tends to show more signs of ageing.

Moisturizing and nourishing are essential: do not forget that what is good for the face is also good for the body!

Healthy Winter Skin What To Know To Achieve It.

19 janvier 2019

January is here and as the temperature drops, our skin start to fill discomfort and loses that glow and volume, that we all like to see.

Chemical exfoliation vs Physical

7 novembre 2018

Types of Exfoliators – Chemical vs Physical

Exfoliation is important step in skin care to maintain clear healthy skin. The regular removal of the superficial skin cells helps encourage skin rejuvenation, fade dark spots and discoloration, remove flaky patches, and keep pores clear. Exfoliated skin also helps your skincare products work better–your serums and moisturizers are able to penetrate the skin more effectively.

There are two types of exfoliation: physical and chemical. Although both are very effective and can achieve similar results, they work using very different mechanisms. It is important to understand not only the difference between them, but also which method should be used based on individual skin concerns and the results you are looking to achieve.

Physical exfoliation is done with an ingredients that mechanically removes cellular debris. This can be done with natural ingredients such as finely ground nuts or seeds, a wash cloth, or a cleansing brush.

Chemical exfoliation is accomplished with the use of acids, enzymes and retinoids. Different acids can be used for different skin types. Enzymatic exfoliants are the most gentle form of chemical peel, but all of them sweeping away dead sells debris, revealing smoother, brighter skin. Only chemical exfoliants work by breaking down the bond that holds dead cells together.

There are different types of acids out there, the most common being Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA). AHAs, like lactic and glycolic are derived from natural substances and are great for normal and dry skin.

BHAs, like salicylic acid are oil soluble, making them perfect for oily, acne-prone skin.

Fruit enzymes like papain and bromelain, which come from papaya and pineapple, are also great exfoliants. Enzymatic peels are the gentlest form of chemical exfoliants, making them suitable for even sensitive skin.

No matter what your skin type, the right exfoliant is out there for you. By choosing the right exfoliant your skin will improve and will be not irritated.

Guinot and Skeyndor offer a number of exfoliants to suit all skin types. Unlike some harsh scrubs, Guinot silky and creamy exfoliator is enriched with essential fatty acids that instantly comfort and protect the skin, and if you are not sure which exfoliator is best for you, it’s always a good idea to consult your skincare professional to select the right product for your skin type.

Skeyndor Power C+ Facial

7 novembre 2018

It’s an ideal treatment to look extremely fresh even in the grey, gloomy days and positively stand out from the crowd.

This treatment is designed to help restore radiance and brightness to dull, lacklustre skin experiencing dryness, mild discoloration, and rough texture.

Skeyndor has succeeded in re-inventing Vitamin C cosmetic treatment, with its new line Power C+. Formulated with a new generation of the anti-oxidant vitamin par excellence, Power C+ by Skeyndor offers greater efficiency thanks to its penetration and cell absorption properties.

Thanks to its great concentration and high absorption Vitamin C, Power C+ by Skeyndor offers a synergy of actions that help to rejuvenate the skin:

  • It activates cell metabolism, producing greater collagen synthesis.
  • It produces an anti-oxidant action and reduces the cell damage caused by UV rays
  • It inhibits the synthesis of new melanin and whitens the melanin already formed

The relentless anti-oxidant activity of the Vitamin C is complemented and enhanced by the addition of the pomegranate HG Extract to give the skin beautiful radiance.

This exceptional ingredient, rich in vitamins and tannins, produces an anti-oxidant and anti-free radical action, as well as providing photo-protection and calming the skin.

Remember that the vitamin C is a natural antioxidant and therefore protects our skin from free radicals, preventing our skin from aging.

Take care of your skin today, because prevention is always easier and more enjoyable than cure.

Anti-aging devices, and how they work


1. Galvanic Technology

Galvanic technology works by using positive and negative currents. Positive electrons attract dirt and impurities from the deep layers to the skin's surface. The negative electrons ensure the absorption of nutrients deep into the skin's layers. The benefits include smoother and clearer skin, as well as reduced wrinkles and skin tightening due to muscle contraction.

2. Microcurrent Facials

Microcurrent anti-aging devices use low levels of electrical current to speed up cell repair, stimulate collagen and elastin production, and increase blood circulation. Microcurrent also tones facial muscles which helps tighten skin. Microcurrent facial treatments are painless and barely noticeable. Microcurrent treatments should be avoided by pregnant women, those suffering from epilepsy, those wearing a pacemaker, or those with recent scars.

3. Ultrasound

Ultrasound delivers heat energy to a particular location deep in the dermal layer, causing a small injury. The body responds to this injury by creating more collagen, which in turn helps lift and tighten the skin. This technique is FDA-approved and doesn’t have any known contraindications.

4. Infrared Light & Phototherapy

How infrared light affects the skin.

These devices work by directing artificial light to the skin where it reaches the deeper layers, stimulating cell regeneration, reducing inflammation, and boosting collagen and elastin production. Different light colours are used to treat different skin problems.

The most common colours used in light therapy are red and infrared LED light as well as orange, green, yellow and blue. Blue LED light is often recommended to treat acne issues.

Bottom Line

In my opinion as we get older, using only skin-care products are not enough to make a big difference with wrinkles and sagging skin, so we need the help of other anti-aging tools. Anti-wrinkle devices are not quick fixes, but with perseverance your skin's appearance will improve greatly.

Anti aging skin devices are a great addition to your regular facials and with continued use your skin will look amazing even in your golden years.

What are those


Hyaluronic acid = Wrinkle Reduction

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide (carbohydrate) in the human body. It’s present in large amounts in the spaces between skin cells, where it provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness to the skin.

It is powerful humectant ( moisture-binding ingredient) that keeps skin plump and hydrated and, yes, young-looking. As we age, the body’s capacity to produce Hyaluronic Acid decreases. This results in thinner, dryer and wrinkled skin. By infusing Hyaluronic acid, the skin is able to regain lost moisture and volume, thereby reducing wrinkles.

Hyaluronic acid is one ingredient that works across the board. Every skin type, even oily, can benefit.

Peptides = Skin Repair

Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins in the skin. When peptides form a long chain of amino acids, they become proteins. When they are in a short chain of amino acids, they are able to penetrate the top layer of our skin and send signals to our cells to let them know how to function.

One important protein in our skin is collagen. Collagen gives our skin its thickness and suppleness. When collagen breaks down in the skin (from age and environmental factors like the sun and stress), wrinkles form. Peptides applied topically to the skin can send a signal to collagen to prompt the formation of new collagen, and voila, you have the appearance of more youthful, supple skin.

When its combined with Hyaluronic Acid, a synergetic effect of dermal repair is created.

Retinol = Collagen Renewal

Research clearly shows that retinol, the technical name for vitamin A, has truly astounding anti-aging benefits for skin. To make sure you’re getting the best of what this multitasking ingredient—and the 40 years of established research behind it—has to offer, here’s what you need to know.

A derivative of vitamin A, Retinol has been clinically proven to increase collagen and skin cell production. It is known as one of the best anti-wrinkle solutions.

Well known for its anti-ageing properties, retinol is able to tackle several different skin concerns at once including sun damage, fine lines, pores, acne and overall texture.

Your questions are always welcome.

Winter Skin Care from Guinot Paris


What are the top 5 winter skin care tips?

1.Exfoliation of the face and body are extremely important during this time of year. Dehydration due to the environment, use of hot water, and heat in the workplace or at home increase loss of moisture, which increases the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and blotchiness. For even better results, apply a mask after exfoliation to increase radiance, improve the texture of the skin, and increase moisture retention.

Guinot proposals: Perfect Radiance Exfoliating Cream for the face and Easy Body Scrub for exfoliation and Moisture Supplying Radiance Mask.

2.Apply a heavier protective cream to diminish wind burn and increase moisture retention.

Guinot proposal: Rich Anti-Wrinkle 888 Cream.

3.Gently exfoliate the lips and eye area and afterwards immediately apply a moisturizing mask to reduce moisture evaporation, flakiness, and to improve the appearance of the skin. Makeup will go on much smoother.

Guinot proposals : Biological Peeling Radiance Gel and Instant Eye Mask.

4.Protect the fragile skin on your neck with a nourishing, protective cream specifically made for that area. Many of us don’t realize how much our neck area is affected during this time of year (scarves, turtle necks, and cold air). Dehydration increases leading us to be more prone to wrinkles and fine lines.

Guinot proposal: Firming Vital Neck Care.

5.Exfoliate and use a mask on your hands.

Guinot proposals : Easy Body Scrub and Longue Vie Hand Care in a thick layer (leave for 15 minutes and then massage until complete absorption).

How often should you get facials during the winter?

Treatments should be done once or twice a month depending on the skin type or skin condition. Guinot proposal: Hydradermie, the star treatment for deep hydration.

What else should we remember to do to take care of our skin during the winter season?

Many people forget to use sunscreen during the winter, but eighty percent of the sun rays reflect from the snow versus twenty percent during the summer from the sand.

This information was brought to you by Skin Care Toronto and Guinot, Paris.


Guinot Hydra Beaute Mist


Guinot New Hydra Beaute Mist

The concept of facial mist isn't new, but the technology has advanced to the level, where it’s more, then just water in the product.

Some of the products contain serum, multi-vitamins, antioxidants and essential oils.The moisturizing qualities of mists help improve dry, oily, irritated, flaky skin. Some products even have anti-aging ingredients, to reduce appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Mists are also an easy way to add radiance to your skin.

When choosing a facial mist that is right for you, look for ingredients that will serve a purpose. For example, a mist with Hyaluronic acid, can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, so once its apply on the skin, you get an instant long lasting hydration.

Some mists offer more of a spa like effect, with only purified water and lovely smell, and may not be as effective, as one that has active ingredients.

Not all mists will have the same ingredients and will feel the same on the skin. Some can even make your skin feel dry, because they contain only water, and are designed only to refresh and freshen up the make-up.

The ones that have essential oils, vitamins, serum, minerals and plants extracts, may help with anti-aging and overall improvement of skin quality. They also, can be used to set the makeup, but they will hydrate the skin.

If you haven't tried Guinot facial mist yet, try it. I guarantee, you will like it. The product is very easy to apply and there are so many options when to and how to use the mist. Guinot Hydra Beaute mist is a great and welcome addition to Guinot Skin Care, to help with: calming, hydrating, cooling, replenishing and adding radiance to the skin.

Keep a facial mist at home, in your handbag, at the office, gym bag, at the cottage, on the beach and remember to take it with you on the plane. Facial mist is like drinking water, if you feel thirsty, then you are dehydrated, and same goes for tight, dry skin.

Keep up the hydration for supple, hydrated skin, one of the best ways to fight the sighs of aging.

Derma Peel Pro by Skeyndor

There are many chemical peel treatments on the market today, which can make it difficult when it comes to deciding which brand to use and which ones have effective ingredients. The combination and quality of ingredients are very important to maximize the results of a chemical peel. One leading chemical peel that offers a safe, virtually painless peel experience and high-quality, effective ingredients is Derma Peel by Skeyndor.

Derma Peel Pro is one of the most popular chemical peels available and has earned doctor recognition world wide. The formula combines Kojic Acid, TCA, Retinoic Acid, Phenol, Salicylic Acid, and Vitamin C.

Alone the ingredients are powerful, but the combination produces amazing results. The anti-oxidants neutralize the harmful effects of free radicals for healthier skin.

TCA, Phenol and Retinoic Acid reduce wrinkles and correct pigment problems, while Salicylic Acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation.

A chemical peel can:

2.Lighten and brighten your skin

3.Remove or reduce hyper pigmentation, melasma, sun damage and age spots.

4.Reduce the appearance of pore size

5.Soften fine lines and wrinkles

6.Reduce or eliminate acne and acne scars

7.Stimulate the production of collagen resulting in firmer skin.

I Hope this will help you to make the right decision on your treatment.




Microdermabrasion also known as Microderm is one of the easiest  and most effective facial rejuvenation treatments you can get.

Some of the benefits are:

*Rejuvenates sun damaged skin - face, neck, shoulders, back, arms and legs
*Minimize blotchy skin coloring

*Reduce age spots
*Reduce acne and superficial scars
*Remove blackheads and whiteheads
*Help with stretch marks
*Improve overall skin health and much more

Growing in popularity is the newer Diamond-tip microdermabrasion with less discomfort and without the crystal residue at the end of the treatment

Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is the latest form of this treatment and has following advantages over crystal microdermabrasion.

1. No crystals left on the skin and floating around in the air.

2. No environmentally hazardous material to dispose of after each procedure.

3. No crystals left in the hair and clothes of both the patient and esthetician

4. No need to wear a mask or eye protection or remove contacts.

5. No crystals to cause irritation in eyes and airways after the procedures.

Diamond-tip microdermabrasion uses the same vacuum technology and hand-held wand, but there aren't any crystals moving through the tip. The diamond tip itself exfoliates the skin and the vacuum whisks the dead skin away.

Why Guinot sunscreens are better


Science in skincare is so unpredictable that I am always trying to understand myself first before I deliver any information to you.

The French line Guinot is known for being innovative in the skincare industry and always pioneering very interesting products.

One of this products is Guinot sunscreen that contains DNA . After doing some research, I discovered, that when DNA added to the sunscreen, is actually very beneficial.
In a nutshell (because it gets rather technical and complex), the ultraviolet light from the sun causes damage to the skin cells by actually changing the structure of the DNA in them.

Introducing small bits of DNA (thymidine dinucleotide) can boost the cell's repair pathways so they remove more of the damaged bits of DNA after UV exposure.
The DNA is essentially major protection from the sun and Guinot', patented Nucleic Defense complex (DNA, heliotropine, filtres and UVA-UVB screens) is basically does not exist in the others regular sunscreen protection. The complex combines UVA and UVB filters with actual DNA molecules so it reflects as much as it repairs and protects. When applied, its absorbed pretty fast and has very fresh pleasant smell.
Guinot Sunscreen also contains Horse chestnut which help soothe the skin as well as Vitamin E to neutralize free radicals.

So next time when you ready to spend a day out doors or spend weekend at the cottage, give it try to Guinot sunscreen and tan safely.

Plan Ahead for Summer Skin Care


Summertime and the living is easy—or at least, it’s supposed to be. Humidity and sun can make things a little more complicated, especially for your skin. You sweat every time you step outside, your makeup is melting into your face, and harsh UV rays leave your skin feeling cracked and dry. Don’t let the heat take you by surprise! Planning ahead and having your summer skincare regimen all figured out will keep you living easy after all. There are a few tips you should definitely incorporate into your strategy.

Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. Don’t let yourself become another victim when you could take just a few minutes to prevent it. Sunscreen also helps you in the short term, of course—red, peeling skin isn’t fun for anyone. To avoid clogging your pores and causing breakouts, opt for lightweight, oil free brands with refreshing ingredients like green tea and raspberry seed extract.

Nourish your body. Eat foods that will have you glowing from the inside out. Many fruits and vegetables are great for your skin, and as an added bonus, most of them will be fresh from the harvest during summer, making them nutritional powerhouses. Antioxidant-rich foods have the best benefits for skin. Here are some that the Mayo Clinic recommends:

  • Yellow and orange vegetables like carrots and peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Green leafy vegetables like lettuce and spinach
  • Blueberries
  • Lentils
  • Nuts
  • Fatty fish

Avoid sugar, alcohol in excess, and refined carbohydrates, which are bad for skin and might sabotage your hard work.

Hydrate your skin. Keeping skin hydrated is a fundamental aspect of summer skincare. One of the best ways to do this is by using hyaluronic acid serum, which locks in moisture and keeps skin looking youthful while healing the damaging effects of the sun. Also make sure your body is getting enough water: eight 8-ounce glasses a day is typically recommended. Your skin will be the least of your worries if you pass out from dehydration! Also treat yourself to some water-rich foods (watermelon anyone?).

Exfoliate. Slough off unsightly dead skin cells with exfoliating scrubs or brushes to keep your skin looking and feeling soft and smooth. This will also help to gently draw out the oil and makeup that may get trapped in your pores over the course of the day.

Now you’re ready to enjoy those picnics and beach outings worry-free. Take care of your skin and your skin will take care of your confidence.


Spring Skin Care Tips


                 Important Spring Skin Care Tips

With Spring here, it’s a great time to focus on your skin and prepare it for the change of season.

Skin Tip #1:

Assess  all your skin care products

Many of us have things that we don’t even know how or when to use, let alone when or why we bought it! Pull everything out of the cabinet and assess every product.

-if the product is no longer working for you. No sense in hanging on to something that isn’t a fit for your skin.

-if the product is older than two years. The preservative system in most skin care products has a shelf life of two years.

-Same applies for make up.

Skin Tip #2:

Make daily use of sunscreen SPF 15- 30 a top priority, and apply it generously!

When it comes to sunscreen, in order for the SPF to truly protect the skin and prevent the harmful UV rays from damaging the skin, the formula has to be applied generously or it will not provide adequate protection.

Skin Tip #3:

Spring clean your pores with a professional facial.

Without a doubt, the most effective way to clear out blackheads and clogged pores from the skin is to have them manually removed with a professional facial.

Skin Tip #4:

Exfoliate to prevent blemishes and make your skin breathe again. The change of season from winter to spring can bring on increased breakouts for some. Why? Since the air is dry in the winter, the skin may have some residual dead skin cell build-up. Then when the temperatures start to warm up, it can bring increased oil flow, which can get trapped underneath cellular build-up resulting in clogged pores and possible breakouts. The solution? Increase your exfoliation.

Happy Spring everyone!
