Full Circle of Skin Conditioning: Weekly Care

Alexandria Professional Full Circle of Skin Conditioning at Slow Beauty Eco Salon in Canberra

Each step of the Full Circle of Skin Conditioning integrates into the next. The sugaring treatment will remove dead skin cells and hair which leaves the skin perfectly prepared to absorb and utilise all the wonderful, nourishing and hydrating ingredients in the Phenomen-all, super-powered with the addition of Restore. When the skin cells are softened and other skin conditions kept at bay, the skin is prepared for easier exfoliation. Exfoliating any excess dry skin build-up primes the skin for the mud application, and allows it to penetrate easier and deeper in order to purge impurities and detoxify the follicles. Now when you return to sugaring, the treatment will be easier, faster and even more effective!

“NO MATTER WHAT PART OF THE CIRCLE YOU START WITH, YOU WILL ALWAYS GAIN IMMENSE BENEFITS SIMPLY BY GETTING STARTED.” -ALEXANDRIA PROFESSIONAL® CEO AND PRESIDENT LINA KENNEDY

The foundational steps of skin care are cleansing, toning and moisturising, and this must be done consistently on a daily basis to maintain skin health. (If you’d like to know more about these steps, you can find more information in the post Full Circle of Skin Conditioning: Daily Care). But did you know that the secret to getting the most from  your daily care is actually your weekly care? Regular exfoliation improves the efficacy of the products you apply every day, which means you moisturiser is able to penetrate deep into the skin where it’s needed most and not get stuck in an excess of built-up skin-cells.  For optimal skin health and integrity, the following two steps should be incorporated into your home skincare regime on any area you are having sugared, to ensure you get the best results from your treatment.

Exfoliation

Why exfoliate?

Exfoliation is the key to vibrant skin. Regular exfoliation removes the hard keratin layer build-up, bringing luminosity and clarity to the skin. For younger skin, exfoliation unplugs pores and keeps the skin clear and smooth.

The Alexandria Professional® Salt Smoothie® is formulated with the highest concentration of round, granular Dead Sea salts. Gently exfoliating with Salt Smoothie® regularly not only helps eliminate unnecessary dead skin cells, but it will also mineralise and hydrate your skin.

Begin by squeezing out the proper amount for the area to be treated. Blend into both palms and begin massaging into dry skin by using small circular motions. Do not wipe off. Soak hands in warm water, shake off excess, and start to massage the Salt Smoothie® into the skin. Repeat until Salt Smoothie® is completely absorbed. Pat dry if you’re not following up with Mud Puddle®. Salt Smoothie is safe and gentle enough to use every day!

Detoxification

Mud Puddle® is comprised of a medicinal blend of natural thermal properties, one of which is Silicon Dioxide. Mud Puddle® contains 60% Silicon Dioxide, which is a building block of collagen from the skin to bone. It is a natural anti-inflammatory that deeply penetrates the skin and clears stored toxins. It will naturally keep your skin brighter and softer. Immediate results are experienced when using Mud Puddle®, which makes it a wonderful addition to your facial skin care home regimen as well.

Three easy ways to benefit from Mud Puddle®:

  1. Blend with distilled or purified water and apply a thin layer on the desired area. Leave for 10-20 minutes. If the mud dries too quickly, spritz with water to re-hydrate so it continues to “work” – MudPuddle® is only active when wet and is able to be re-wet as many times as desired without losing efficacy.
  2. Blend with Restore™ Hydrating Lotion to provide a deep hydrating treatment.
  3.  Soak in a bath with ½ cup of Mud Puddle® added to the water.

Maintaining professional and at-home regimes of these treatments is a sure way to improve your skin’s integrity. We recommend starting off using the Full Circle Travel Kit to begin your introduction to the program.

What is Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring?

 

Alexandria Professional Logo

Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring is a much gentler, safer, and truly progressive method of hair removal for all parts of the body. It is effective on all skin types and hair textures for both men and women.

What is the Sugaring Product?

The sugaring paste used is a blend of natural ingredients with no chemical additives so there is no fear of any harmful side effects. The application of this unique product will also remove dead skin cells leaving the skin soft, silky and healthy.

Why Alexandria Professional?

Certified Alexandria Practitioners are professionally trained and educated. They are committed to a high standard of service, helping you make Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring™ a part of your regular beauty routine.

Your Appointment

As a Certified Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring Practitioner, I will be able to schedule your appointments best because I will become very familiar with your hair growth pattern. Hair growth need not exceed 3mm to be removed.

Preparing your skin for your treatment

Please do not use a razor or depilatory creams between appointments, as this will interfere with your goal to refine and diminish your hair growth and to have smooth healthy skin. Regularly hydrating and exfoliating your skin between sugaring treatments is just as important as receiving treatment. You will receive the best results if your skin is healthy. Ask me how you can maximise your results. The better your skin, the better your treatment. The better your treatment, the better your skin… It’s that simple!

Faces

If required, to quickly reduce redness in this area, I can apply a Hungarian Wellness Mud™ immediately following treatment or apply it at your convenience at home with our Mud Puddle® Hungarian Wellness Mud™.

Rejuvenate your skin!

Alexandria has developed a simple yet very effective home care regimen to benefit all skin types and conditions – a system of the following products:

Saltspring®

SaltSpring Dead Sea Salt - Exfoliate and Detox
SaltSpring Dead Sea Salt – Exfoliate and Detox

Dead Sea Salt exfoliates and smoothes the skin and is traditionally calming, detoxifying and very soothing. When combined with sweet almond oil, it makes an excellent dead skin exfoliant.

Mud Puddle®

Mud Puddle - Hungarian Wellness Mud

Hungarian Wellness Mud™ detoxifies and revitalises the skin and is excellent for all skin types and conditions ranging from acne to cellulite. This high quality, versatile mud comes in a dry form and blends easily to a rich, smooth creamy paste by adding water.

Phemomen-All® 

Phenomena-All Skin Repair
Phenomena-All Skin Repair

A multi-treatment cream for ingrown hair, problem skin, cuticles, calluses, rough elbows and knees. This unique combination of superb, quality essential oils work to soften the upper and middle layers of the skin allowing the quick removal of dead skin cells. This is important in treating ingrown hair. Ingrown hair occurs when a new hair is not strong enough to push through the layers of dead skin cells formed over the follicle. Phenomena-All® will keep your skin soft and help prevent ingrown hair. your skin will begin to look fresh and rejuvenated!

Maximise Results

As your Alexandria Practitioner, I will work with you to establish a routine suitable to your hair growth pattern, so that each treatment works more effectively towards the diminishment of your hair. Since the best age to start is at puberty, I encourage you to influence your daughters to start the Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring™ treatments instead of shaving.

Sun Tanning

Regular sugaring treatments will actually enhance and brighten your tan. Your skin may sunburn more easily immediately following a sugaring treatment due to dead skin cell exfoliation. I recommend you wait 24 hours before exposing your skin to the sun or infrared lamps. You should not receive a sugaring treatment on an area where your skin is sunburned.

Irritants

Do not use perfumed soap or products with chemical irritants on sugared areas within 24 hours of your treatment. Do not apply deodorant to underarms for 12 hours after a sugaring treatment. I recommend that you avoid makeup for 12 hours following a facial sugaring treatment.

Menstruation

I suggest that you do not schedule your appointments to coincide with your menstrual cycle, as you may be more sensitive.

Skin Spotting

Tiny red spots may appear on the skin for a few hours. If this should happen, do not be alarmed. This is a natural reaction caused when a hair is removed by the root. It will disappear quickly. The bigger the root, the bigger the spot. As your hair becomes refined, the spots will become smaller.

For Sensitive Skin

If you experience any discomfort or redness, simply apply the Essential Tonic and Restore Lotion from your Love My Skin Kit, purchased with your first sugaring treatment. You can also instantly calm your skin with the excellent Mud Puddle® Hungarian Wellness Mud™.
