Introducing the CosMedix Elite step-up program

Introducing the CosMedix Elite step-up program

It’s a new year and full of exciting new products here at Sweet Life Skincare!  We are thrilled to announce the release of our new CosMedix Elite collection called.   These cosmetics focus on using higher-level ingredients to really maximize results.   This collection from CosMedix is only available to select spa partners, and we are so stoked to be chosen.

It’s important to constantly challenge our skin to be the best it can be, and also introduce new ingredients when and how it makes sense.  Just like doing the same workout over and over can create complacency in your muscles, the same can be true for your skin.  We want to keep challenging our skin to be the very best it can be!

Check out the list of latest and greatest additions with CosMedix Elite:

  • Gentle Clean:  a sulfate-free mild cleanser containing sodium hyaluronate to bind water to the skin and shea butter to moisturize.
  • RX Clean:  a ramped-up version of Purity Clean that contains 10% lactic acid to eliminate oil and exfoliate.
  • Reduce:  a soothing serum in a creamy base that contains totarol – an antioxidant 3 times stronger than Vitamin E.
  • Pepoxide:  the ultimate antioxidant serum that contains 16 different antioxidants and Hexapeptide-1 for conditioning skin.
  • Serum 24:  a step up from Serum 16 that contains 24% encapsulated LG-Retinex to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
  • Refine RX:  a highly potent 12% Retinol complex that can dramatically renew the skin’s appearance.
  • X-Cell +:  a brightening and tightening serum in 1!  Serum 16 and Simply Brilliant got together and conceived this 2-in-1 formula.
  • X-Age:  an age defying moisturizer containing liquid crystals, spin trap molecules, and encapsulated retinol.
  • Eye Doctor:  think Opti-Crystal plus retinol!

In the same way that we take a graduated approach to advancement in skincare treatments, the same is true for continuing to tackle different skin conditions.  You may first want to focus on sagging skin, but then brightening your skin tone or correcting scarring may be next in line.  We want to continue to expand the methods and ingredients in your skin renewing routine.  Come in to check out these fabulous new products from CosMedix!

A little extra love with ‘Restore’

A little extra love with ‘Restore’

Love is a perfect feeling, isn’t it?  It’s hard to put into words, but we know love when we see it and feel it.  We all need love in our lives, and sometimes our skin needs a little extra love.

This Valentine’s Day, Sweet Life Skincare is launching a very special treatment called ‘Restore’.  This treatment is especially beneficial for those with health-compromised skin.  This facial is also safe and effective for those undergoing or recovering from cancer treatment, and is free of any known carcinogens.  As a part of Restore, we will be using a carefully selected Swiss skincare product known as Dr. Spiller Biocosmetics, whose US-based center is located right here in GA.  We chose Dr. Spiller because of a particular line within their product called ‘Alpenrausch’, which was given its name from the Swiss Alps from which the products are sourced.  Alpenrausch meets the strictest  COSMOS ORGANIC  and BIDH standards, which is the first European-wide recognized non-commercial association.  COSMOS ORGANICS requires that a minimum of 95% of ingredients are sourced from organically (mostly plant) cultivated agriculture.  Not only that, but their exclusively pure Chiemgauer Alpine Spring Water acts as a base in this organic skincare line.

The Restore organic facial will utilize the Alpenrausch line and these same products will be available for homecare routine as well.   We are excited to offer the following additional products (including body care!):

FACE:

-Mild Cleansing Foam

-Harmonizing Facial Toner

-Reviving Eye Cream

-Concentrated Care Cream

-Lip Balm

BODY:

-Refreshing Shower Gel

-Relaxing Skin Oil

-Hydration Body Cream

 

This line is safe and effective for anyone to use that is looking for extra hydration and moisture, so please come in to experience it!  Wishing you all extra love this Valentine’s Day and throughout the year….

Love,

Priya

Spotlight on CosMedix: Why Chemistry Matters in Skin Care

I was just thinking this morning that I am SO glad I chose CosMedix as my professional skin care partner.  Not only because they are the only professional skin care line based in Atlanta (support local!), but also because of their solid belief in using purified ingredients with delivery systems that actually WORK.

The world of skin care is overwhelming and filled with thousands of options.  Everyone claims their products are the best, with items being available from the drug store to day spas to plastic surgeon’s offices.  There is organic and non-organic, gluten free and natural, harsh chemical driven agents, and the list goes on and on.  I for one have been a product hoarder (there’s another way to say that, but hey, my mother reads this)!  So if there is something that is sold at a Farmers Market stand, the Estee Lauder counter, Sephora, or the dermatologist’s office, I have seen it and tried it!

Why do we keep trying different products hoping that it will be the one that we can stick with?  Because we keep looking for the best, hoping that it will get rid of that one spot that won’t go away or that stubborn wrinkle that has taken up residence on our forehead.  You can try a product and it works for a period of time and then seems like it’s no longer making a difference.  Why does that happen?  The label said 67% of people saw a reduction in wrinkles!  It really all comes down to the chemistry.

Your skin is the LARGEST organ on your body, and it’s actually quite picky.  Just like only 1 particular key will open a lock, only certain ingredients in a certain molecular structure will be accepted and utilized by your skin.  If the product hasn’t been formulated to match the skin cell receptor, it will be like trying to jam the wrong key into a lock and it simply won’t work.  So, if a skin care manufacturer wants to affect change in the skin, they must use ingredients in the form that the skin can accept and actually use to your benefit.  That’s #1.

#2 is the ingredients themselves.  Just like you have learned to look at the ingredients label on the food that you purchase at the grocery store, take a look at your skin care products.  What are the active ingredients?  What are the other ingredients?  Do you know what they are and what purpose they serve?  For example, D-Glucuronic is the basic building block of hyaluronic acid which is especially good at attracting and trapping water into the skin.  Sounds ‘chemical-y’, but hyaluronic acid is actually found naturally in our bodies.  How about that!  It pays to know what you are putting on your skin and what benefit you are actually getting from it.

#3 all comes down to the results.  A complaint I often hear from clients is that they have had previous treatments where they left having irritated, inflamed, or hyper-sensitive skin.  So, naturally, it’s scary to think of taking that risk again – I get it!  Even though your skin is your first line of defense against bacteria and free radicals, it’s a delicate flower.  It can’t handle repeated assaults with thinning, drying, harsh skin care.  It is 100% possible to get targeted results without destroying the surrounding tissue in the process.

So that’s why I love CosMedix.  They use purified, non-irritating ingredients in the molecular form that your skin will actually accept, and the result from those ingredients is healthy, balanced skin.  It’s as simple as that.  So, let’s open up those bathroom cabinets and think about consolidating the product hoarding to skin care with chemistry that actually works.
