Summer Skin Saviors
Have the BBQ’s, pool time, golf, tennis, hikes, and all the other wonderful outdoor activities left your skin looking dull and weathered? It’s no secret that our skin needs a little rejuvenation after all of the fun in the sun! As summer comes to an end, it’s not too early to map out your game plan. Be sure to schedule an appointment for a customized plan. 
Must Have Products:

Antioxidants: If you are looking to turn back the clock, antioxidants like vitamins C and A neutralize free radical damage and actually stimulate cellular regeneration.

If you are new to using a retinol, start with The Essentials Reset & Rewind Retinol Cream

More advanced with retinols? Try one of our RX strength creams. Consult with your Aesthetician during your next visit to see which is best for you.
Must Have Treatments:

IPL – A Photofacial treatment is a series of gentle intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments developed to improve the appearance of sun damaged and aged skin, as well as reduce redness and flushing, resulting in more youthful-looking skin.

Advanced Chemical Peel – A medium depth peel is recommended twice each year and requires a 5-7-day recovery time.

IPL a.k.a PhotoFacial and chemical peels are two of the best procedures to reverse sun damage. Because sun exposure is not allowed after treatments, we recommend these in the Fall and winter months. Often times we need to pre-treat the skin, so be sure to schedule a 30 minute evaluation and get your customized game plan on your calendar!

Wellness Article

Your brain is a garden, the greatest garden you could ever grow. It needs fertilizer, irrigation, pest control, and the weeds (toxic thoughts) need to be replaced with positive ones. The brain is most affected by what you eat.
Recipe of the Month - Healthy Fruit Recipe 
Delicious fresh fruit makes the perfect dessert for backyard barbecues, pool parties or on any occasion. There will be no leftovers when you bring this delectably sweet and juicy fruit salad to your next summer event!
Sweet & Fruity Summer Salad
Prep Time: 30 min. | Yield: 10 servings | Calories: 155 

2/3 cup fresh orange juice
2 cups cubed fresh papaya
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 cups blackberries
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
3 kiwi fruit, peeled & sliced
1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest 

1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest 
1 cup seedless grapes    
2 cups cantaloupe melon balls
1 cup cranberries 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 empty watermelon shell
3 bananas, sliced
Bring orange juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, orange zest and lemon zest to a gentle boil in a saucepan on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 5 minutes until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Set aside to cool.

Cut ¾ inch slice off bottom of watermelon shell so it remains steady on any flat surface. Gently arrange mixed fruit inside of empty half of watermelon shell. Drizzle cooled sauce evenly over fruit. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Garnish with fresh mint leaves just before serving if desired.
