Here comes another “you asked for it, you got it!” addition to Revive!  We have added tanning to our list of services and Kelsie has set up the CUTEST tanning room I’ve ever seen! It is beautiful and peaceful and we all just want to hang out in there.

As an esthetician, Kelsie is generally anti-tanning, but is also realistic and realizes that people are going to do it no matter what she recommends!  You can’t really hide it when you lie down to get your lashes done smelling like you just tanned 😛 You know what I’m talking about! She’s onto you!  So we may as well be a one stop shop and try to educate our clients on the “best practices” of tanning.

We have a variety of lotion bottles and samples here, as well as eye protection, which is HUGELY IMPORTANT!!! You know how you’re not supposed to stand outside and stare at the sun because it’ll damage your eyes?  Think about what happens when the “sun” is inches from your face and you’re relying on your super thin eyelids to protect you…sound like a good plan? It’s definitely not, so wear your goggles!!  We have disposable eyewear also if that’s more your style.

Here are our current prices – they’re 15% off through today, December 6th as part of our 12 Days of Christmas special.

A few weeks ago we talked about some vitamins and their contribution to both the inside and the outside of our bodies.  Vitamin C is a biggie and we have two serums here that would be a perfect addition to your skin care routine.

PCA C&E Strength Max

This serum is usable by all skin types and people who are looking to correct visible signs of aging and/or discoloration.  From PCA: “This antioxidant formulation combines maximum strength pure vitamin C and pure vitamin E to strengthen skin, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.”

Le Mieux Vita-C Serum

Ingredient quality is incredibly important when it comes to skin care.  Many vitamin C products contain an unstable form of the vitamin and have a short shelf life and lower efficacy.  Le Mieux says: “This concentrated serum is enriched with 2 of the most stable forms of vitamin C (MAP and AAP), vitamin E, and B vitamins to restore a healthy, youthful glow, balance uneven tone, and soften roughness.”

We carry PCA and Le Mieux here at Revive because we believe quality is so important.  These are brands with proven track records of amazing results.  Feel free to chat with us about which of these serums would be best for you!

So you procrastinated did you?  Me too.

In case you missed all of the memos, tomorrow is Halloween.  I’m not really sure how that happened because I feel like the 4th of July was a couple weeks ago, but clearly I am sadly mistaken!

Don’t fret though! The trusty internet has provided me with some cheap and easy costume ideas – check them out:

Contour Tutorial –

This one definitely made me laugh – just apply your make up like you’re doing some serious highlighting and contouring, but don’t blend it!  You will look ridiculous, but hey beggars can’t be choosers

Party Animal –

Grab an animal face mask of your choosing, a party hat and maybe one of those fun little things you blow into with the streamers and you’re all set!

Dancing Girl Emoji –

What has the world come to when an emoji counts as a costume? I don’t know, but it definitely meets the cheap and easy criteria.  It wasn’t the only emoji suggestion I found either!  Black tee shirt, black shorts, black socks, and top it all off with some black bunny ears

Bubble Bath –

Blow up some white balloons and pin them to a white tee shirt to make the bubbles, slap on a shower cap and you’re good to go!

Salt & Pepper –

Here’s an easy couple idea – one of you puts on a white shirt with a big “S” on it and the other wears a gray shirt with a “P”.  No one can possibly screw that one up.

Side note: I saw soap and a loofah as a suggestion for a “last minute” couple’s costume.  Don’t do it.  Nothing about that is do able at the last minute and in my experience, you will show up to your Halloween party 2+ hours late because loofahing did not go as smoothly as you hoped…

Now get busy!  I’d love to see your costumes! Post a pic here or on our Facebook 🙂

I’ve decided to do a series of posts on acids! Kelsie put a poll on our Instagram story the other day – “Do you know what hyaluronic acid is?” and the majority of responses were no!  And we just can’t have that because it’s amazing stuff and you need to know about it!

Hyaluronic acid (I’m just gonna call it HA) occurs naturally in our bodies, but the concentration decreases as we age.  Why do our bodies insist on getting rid of the good stuff when we’re getting older…? Killin me.  Decreasing levels of HA might leave us looking a little raisin-y.  Dehydrated skin, loss of plumpness and firmness, basically nothing good! So when our body decides that it doesn’t want to cooperate anymore, we can look to an HA skin care product to supplement!

A feature of young, healthy skin is that it’s able to retain a balanced amount of moisture.  HA is like a sponge – it can hold almost 1,000 times its weight in water – so it does an awesome job of keeping your skin in a nice little moisturized blanket 🙂

HA can be taken as a supplement also because who wants creaky joints?! Not I! Again, it occurs naturally in our bodies to help keep our joints lubricated, but the older you get, the more help you probably need!

Lastly, HA is a key ingredient in many cosmetic fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane.  It kind of makes injectables less scary when you realize they’re mostly made of something your body produces naturally, doesn’t it? (P.S. Vanity will be back on December 11th for all your injectable needs!)

We have a variety of PCA and Le Mieux products containing this delightful ingredient!  We also have a special going on this month (I swear I didn’t do this on purpose, it just came to my mind :P) Spend $150 on retail products and receive a free Basic Facial!
