It's Pumpkin Spice Season and Your Skin Loves It!


August 28th, 2018

 
Nestled between the hot end of Summer and the cool days of Fall is September, harvest season. Pumpkins, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg… yes, it’s Pumpkin Spice season and we know it! These seasonal favorites are all very beneficial to your skin, which may start to feel a little drier than normal as the days get shorter and the Colorado air gets cooler.
 
Pumpkin
When pumpkin is in an enzyme form, it can be stimulated with heat and moisture to create a deep exfoliation. This exfoliation process dissolves the dead skin cells, sloughing off unwanted buildup on the skin's surface. That buildup on the skin is responsible for a dull complexion, so getting rid of it helps brighten everything up.
 
The turnover of these skin cells stimulates collagen production. The infusion of vitamins A and C - which pumpkins have in spades - also helps stimulate collagen production, and more collagen means softer fine lines and plumped-up skin. By exfoliating the skin, pumpkin unclogs pores. Plus, vitamins A and C are proven acne-fighters. The bottom line is- anyone’s skin can benefit from pumpkin, whether it is ingested or applied topically.
 
Even if you spent the summer religiously applying sunscreen and wearing hats, you still have some sun damage because of how hard it is to fully protect your skin from the sun. Pumpkin infuses the skin with antioxidants, like vitamin A and beta carotene, to fight free-radical damage. It also deeply exfoliates, resurfaces, and helps repair photo-damaged skin. That means brighter-looking complexions with lightened pigmentation.
 
Cinnamon
Well researched and widely used for its antibacterial and antifungal properties, cinnamon can help your body fight off blemish-causing bacteria. Also great for you circulatory system, cinnamon helps your body deliver enough oxygen and nutrients to your skin so it can stay youthful and strong.
 
Ginger
Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory and also contains skin loving minerals like zinc. Acne-prone skin or skin that holds redness can both benefit from gingers support against ongoing inflammatory response.
 
Nutmeg
Nutmeg can aid in relaxation and help you sleep, so sprinkle a little on your favorite treat to take advantage of some real beauty rest. Your body focuses on cell healing and regeneration while you’re asleep, giving your skin a chance to produce its own natural emollients and to cleanse itself of metabolic waste from the day. This is why when you get a good night's sleep you feel refreshed and your skin looks better!
 
Sounds like a recipe for beautiful glowing skin!

THE FOUNDATION OF GREAT SKIN CARE STARTS FROM THE INSIDE OUT


July 25, 2018

It’s easy to get lost trying to figure out what the best skincare regimen is. So many decisions to make with a plethora of choices from cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer to sun protection and cosmetics. But, can we put the breaks on and back it up for a minute to think about what we are feeding our skin? Everyone knows that eating nutritious food is necessary for optimal health and is essential to all of our organs, including our largest and (in our opinion) most fascinating one, skin. Good nutrition can positively affect how well skin heals, rejuvenates, replenishes and reproduces healthy cells - playing a major role in how we look as we age. With this said, it is important to note that there are some nutrients that you simply cannot get enough of through your diet alone.

If you have not been introduced to Jane Iredale’s supplement line, then ask your aesthetician why she has been holding out on you! LOL! At Orchard Med Spa we have been in love with Jane Iredale Skin Accumax supplements for a long time. It is a must for those who struggle with acne, uneven texture, or problematic skin. Skin Accumax is an all natural food-sourced vitamin supplement that delivers similar results to the often prescribed Accutane, without any of the negative side effects commonly associated with that drug.  

Yes, you read that right... Skin Accumax is an Accutane alternative that delivers proven acne-clearing results safely and naturally, in an easy to use, daily vitamin.

Recently, Jane Iredale has added two more promising supplements to her line up of internal skin care.  At Orchard Med Spa we are on-board and encourage you to commit to creating a healthy internal foundation for your own skin.

Read on to learn more about the Skin Complete Kit, Skin Omegas and Skin Accumax

Good to Know: All of our supplements are manufactured in the UK where pharmaceutical standards are much stricter than in the US. These formulations are rigorously tested to prove the they exceed industry standards. They are easily absorbed, vegan, and free from dairy, yeast, harsh chemicals and pollutants.
 

Skin Complete Kit  (60 capsules of each, $79)
Skin Vitamin A
All of the following are related to Vitamin A and considered “must-haves” for great skin care: Beta-Carotene, Retinyl Palmitate, Retinoids, Retinol, Retinaldehyde, and Tretinoin (aka Retin-A or Renova). All of these are important for the healthy production of new collagen and elastin within the skin, as well as being vital to the health of your vision and immune system. Vitamin A does not discriminate - whether you struggle with acne, brown spots and sun damage, or are just looking to smooth lines and wrinkles, Vitamin A should be a part of your routine and supplementing with Skin Vitamin A by Jane Iredale will get you off to a great start!
Skin Antioxidant
This is a powerhouse combination of 7 specially selected phytonutrients (from plants). As beautiful and blessed as we are to live and breathe...our earthly environment exposes our skin daily to ultraviolet radiation and pollution. We all know about damage from the sun and environmental pollutants, but did you know that light from your computer screen and the heat from your cell phone cause damage to your skin?  At Orchard Med Spa we like to think of antioxidants as the mighty soldiers in the war against aging and free-radical skin damage. Introducing antioxidants to your skin topically (serums) and internally (food/supplements) are critical to optimal health, so please don’t skip this important step.

Skin Omegas (60 capsules, $49)
Essential Fatty Acids (omega-3 and omega-6) are not produced by your body, so you need to get them from food - or supplements! Omegas greatly benefit skin by regulating oil production to prevent acne, and by delaying the skin's aging process to stave off wrinkles. Omega-3 is an anti-inflammatory that enhances the skin's ability to protect you and provides hydration and smoothness to all skin types. Omega-6 reduces itching, redness, and unhealthy retention of fluid. Healthy fats are so important!

Skin Accumax (60 capsules, $69)
Our long-time favorite! Usually not a quick fix (plan on a 14 week commitment), but when you are ready to get serious and get to the bottom your acne issues, this is how you do it. Skin Accumax is the perfect patented blend of vitamins A, C, E and an amazing phytonutrient called DIM. DIM is found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, and it fine tunes the way your body metabolizes certain hormones. Your body absorbs these antioxidants and nutrients to fill voids in the nutrition you get from your diet - healing your organs (including skin) and balancing your metabolic processes. The result is clear, healthy-looking skin.

Benefits of Pineapple


June 21, 2018

In esthetics, we use bromelian enzyme, found in pineapple, to minimize bruising, decrease inflammation and improve the luminosity of skin. Before injectables, we often recommend eating fresh pineapple to decrease chances of bruising. Our secret formula consists of eating a quarter of a whole fresh pineapple 2 days before your injectable appointment. The day before your injectable appointment eat half of a fresh pineapple. Before coming into your appointment, eat the remaining quarter of pineapple for breakfast!

Utilizing the topical benefits of pineapple, Orchard Med Spa is debuting our new seasonal facial that will be sure to make a splash this summer! Our decadent Pineapple Cherry Enzyme Facial will have you dreaming of the islands! This treatment offers the aid of pineapple and cherry fruit enzymes to help soften and exfoliate skin. Providing just the right balance to help clear the the appearance of skin issues while supporting the skin with valuable antioxidants.
