With the number of sunny days increasing, our skin is at risk for the aging effects that come along with the harsh rays of the sun. Nicole has a few easy tips that go a long way in maintaining the health (& beauty) of your skin.
Facial Rejuvenation or "Cosmetic" Acupuncture is a safe and natural way to effectively improve skin tone, elasticity, reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve complexion without any harsh chemicals. It has also shown to be effective in treating other skin concerns such as: dry skin, acne & scars, rosacea, changes in complexion and eczema.
Tiny, hair-fine acupuncture needles are placed to stimulate the flow of energy and nutrient-rich blood to the face and body. This process allows your body to rid of old skin cells and boost collagen production. We’ve been told by clients that this all-natural goodness regime also reduces tension in the whole body and is a very relaxing experience.
Typically only 6-12 sessions are needed for facial acupuncture, however we’ll tailor specifically to your needs.
We also carry a line of Bend Skin Care products at the clinic, which some clients have used in conjunction with facial acupuncture for some serious skin rejuvenation.
As with any skin care regime, Nicole suggests preventative care as well. This includes staying hydrated and following a high antioxidant (more vegetables than fruit) diet. Take advantage of our wonderful local markets and low prices of organic produce! Take caution when the suns rays are high, use shade, a hat and a good, non-toxic sun screen. Nicole trusts products from Green Beaver, Badger and Live Clean. Try looking for ingredients like zinc and titanium dioxide. Carrot seed and raspberry seed are great, but only provide a limited amount of SPF and may not combat both UVA and UVB rays.
