  • Vajacial?? What is that???

    We have been doing Vajacials for clients for several years. When we first discussed adding them to the service menu, we talked about what to call it. Should we call it a VU-jacial? A VAGacial? A Vagina-facial?? It is a bit tricky because the area being serviced is actually the Mons Pubis (also known as the Pubic area) and the upper outer labia. We didn't want to call it a Pubacial, mostly because we just didn't like the way that sounded. So we settled on Vajacial. Although technically that could allow clients to think we are providing the service on or near the VAgina, at least using the VA as part of the service they know the body area we are servicing and we can explain exactly what area of the body we will be working on when we have the client in the room. Since some of you might still be wondering, we decided to explain it here also so you don't have to wait until you come in to the Spa to know exactly what a Vajacial is. So what exactly is a Vajacial and why do we do one for a client? Basically a Vajacial is a simple "facial" for the pubic area of a female on her mons pubis and upper outer labia. During the service we cleanse the skin, apply a light exfoliant (often a gentle enzyme), remove any ingrown hairs or blackheads, apply a mask to treat any skin conditions, (dark spots, ingrowns, inflammation, etc), and finish with some witch hazel to restore the skin back to its natural pH levels. We can do this service as an add-on after any Sugaring service in the pubic area of a female or we can do it as a stand alone service. It is less expensive to do as an add-on and because we perform Sugaring hair removal rather than waxing hair removal your skin will not be inflamed out irritated and a Vajacial can be done immediately after your Sugaring service. It is relaxing, and often very helpful for dealing with problems with the delicate skin in the intimate areas of the female body. Dark spots from ingrown hair or inflammation, pink spots or scars from inflammation, ingrown hairs, and many other skin concerns can all be improved with a vajacial. If you have any skin concerns "down there", talk to your Esthetician if you are already a Sugar and Skin Spa client, and if not, book an appointment to come see us and lets work together to give you the skin you want, no matter where on your body it is!

  • Pumpkin for my Face??

    Yes! Pumpkin for you face! Pumpkin is amazing for your skin! This time of year, is all about Pumpkins. Summer is filled with peaches, plums, nectarines, etc. They are summer fruits, but fall is filled with other fruits, namely Pumpkin. (I searched Google, and that is how I know Pumpkin is a fruit). Now, I am not personally a huge fan of pumpkin in my drinks, but I am all about putting it on my skin! And my clients' skin! Why you may ask? Well, let me share with you why this big orange fruit is not just meant to decorate your porch as a Jack-O-Lantern: First, it just smells yummy! I mean, pumpkin pie smell on your face? Yes please! In fact, many of the seasonal and festive ingredients we love to eat and smell are often great for the skin too. Pumpkin is actually chock full of things that are corrective, soothing, and anti-aging. So, aside from smelling amazing and putting us in a cozy autumn mood, what are the benefits of using pumpkin on the skin? Pumpkin is filled with quite a long list of active properties that are well known for producing beautiful, soft, supple skin. For starters, it has Natural Fruit Enzymes and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) which work to exfoliate dead surface cells leaving the skin soft and silky smooth. These enzymes and AHAs reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve skin texture and allows other topical nutrients to be better absorbed. They provide a healthy glow to the skin. Pumpkin is also rich in Vitamins A and C. These powerful antioxidants soften and smooth skin while also boosting collagen production and working to reduce the visible signs of aging. Vitamin A specifically helps to decrease wrinkles, remove brown spots and help reverse sun damage. Vitamin C helps boost your body’s immunity to fight off colds, the flu and infections, as well as helps fight sun damage and free radicals on the skin, preventing aging, wrinkles and brown spots. In fact many aging factors can be dramatically improved with antioxidants (both topically and internally). So putting antioxidant rich foods into your diet is beneficial in many ways for your body! Zinc is another beneficial active found in pumpkin. Zinc regulates oil production in the skin and can help decrease active breakouts as well as healing blemishes in the skin. Many skin care experts often refer to Zinc as “nature’s best healing agent,” for its acne-preventing and skin-healing abilities. Pumpkin seeds, are high in Essential Fatty Acids and Vitamin E. These properties provide moisture to the skin as well as providing a barrier to restore hydration to dry and compromised skin. Are you ready to take advantage of the many beauty benefits of fall’s favorite fruit?

    HEALTHY SKIN HAS A PERFECT OIL AND WATER BALANCE! We frequently talk about balance in our lives. We balance our diets, balance the checkbook and try to balance our time. With all this talk about balance there is one more thing we need to balance and it is CRUCIAL. We need to balance our skin! If our skin is not balanced, it can trick us into thinking it is one thing when it is not. Although we can discuss balancing the pH of our skin, but that is not the type of balance I want to talk about today. Today I want to talk about basic balance, which I believe to be our water-oil balance. WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WATER AND OIL ARE NOT BALANCED? Healthy skin has a perfect oil and water balance, which allows skin cells to do their job naturally and effectively. If someone asks, you which skin type you have, what would your answer be? For most people it would probably be “I’m not really sure, it might be oily or dry”. Water-Oil balance is the basis of skin type, and once your esthetician has determined what your true skin type is, he or she can create a skin care regimen that will work FOR you and not AGAINST you. UNBALANCED SKIN CAN CAUSE SKIN: Become dull looking and increase fine lines Rough texture Redness Dry patches Flaky skin Acne All skin requires moisture from both water and oil in order to function properly and do everything from looking and feeling great to keeping us looking younger longer. Depleted or imbalanced hydration – lacking either oil or water – is the first thing that causes our skin to become dull looking as well as increasing aging and fine lines. So when our skin doesn’t get enough moisture either due to environmental factors, intrinsic factors or simply the wrong skin care regimen our skin becomes weak and sensitive. If we don’t have proper moisture in our skin, the skin creates more oil to combat the dryness and dehydration. When our skin is out of balance it cannot defend itself from these factors and therefore can’t heal and protect itself from damage. This can lead to common skin concerns such as rough texture, redness, dry patches, flaky skin, and even acne. When these things happen, we panic and may resort to stripping cleansers, over-exfoliation, neglect, the wrong products, or a myriad of other things we think are helping, but in fact are causing more problems. With all that said, here is what you need to know about water vs. oil in your skin. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WATER VS. OIL IN YOUR SKIN There is an important relationship between water and skin. When your skin doesn’t have enough water it is dehydrated. Since our bodies are composed 70% of water it only makes sense that we need it for our skin also. After all, skin is the largest organ of our body. Our skin cannot produce moisture on its own and relies on moisture from the water we drink and moisturizers we apply. Environmental factors can also increase the dehydration of our skin. Things like heaters in the winter, smoking, travel, and dry air can also dehydrate our skin. When our skin is dehydrated it does the best it can to compensate……it creates oil. So our skin is now dry AND oily. So we feel oily and do what we think is right which usually strips the oil and makes our skin even more dehydrated. Now some people do just naturally have dry skin. Dry skin makes the least amount of its own oil. Normal skin produces a normal amount of oil and oily skin produces the most amount of oil. Age, smoking and weather conditions can cause our skin to produce less oil, and using harsh cleansers can also remove our skins natural oil. So when our skin lacks oil, that is when it gets sensitive, red, blotchy and have acne. So your skin creates more oil to combat the dryness and the dry/oily/dehydrated cycle just keep repeating! SO HOW CAN YOU STAY BALANCED? With a skin care regimen that is correct for your individual skin! Finding products with the correct ingredients for your skin type, you may need to make changes during different seasons, and use the right amount of products. Too little can keep you dry and too many can be an overload. Here at Sugar and Skin we offer a Consultation and Analysis so our Licensed Estheticians can examine your skin closely and create a regimen that will be right for your skin. If you don’t have time to visit our Chesapeake Spa, we offer an online skin consultation that offers free product samples. Make your appointment today!!
