Facials Make Me Fabulous Ballston Spa, NY

#TeamFab are skin care professionals at Make Me Fabulous and we love teaching our clients how to take care of their skin. Every year, we warn you to wear sunblock and provide info about how damaging the sun’s rays can be.

But let’s face it. We’re also women. And we’re human. We understand when you tell us your face never looks better than when it’s kissed by the sun— glowing, tan, natural.

Summer has passed and with it, that gorgeous color has probably faded from your skin, leaving it dry and dull. we have a few tips to help doctor-up the dull and keep you glowing and hydrated this Winter.

Start with a clean slate. A facial at Make Me Fabulous is a great start for deep cleaning, moisturizing, and restoring. Our amazing signature facial is customized to fit exactly what your face needs, when it needs it. We’ll cleanse, dig deep into those pores and gently exfoliate buffing away the old skin and making way for a fresh look.

Then, we’ll massage, restoring blood flow and getting you a gorgeous, healthy glow. We’ll moisturize, apply a delicious mask, and send you home with a complete analysis.

#TeamFab will make you feel very confident in your ability to continue the job we started and help you choose the right products to use on your face every day. One of Alayne’s personal favorites  to combat sun damage is to infuse it with Vitamin C, a powerful anti-oxidant. Vitamin C can do SO much:

  • It reduces the appearance of brown spots and other types of sun damage
  • It helps boost healthy collagen production (hello firmer skin!)
  • It reduces inflammation and irritation, both of which cause a cascade of damage
  • It will fade post-breakout red marks by improving skin’s natural healing response
  • And, it will increase the effectiveness of your sunscreens and boost your skins’ defense against UV exposure

With decades of research around the benefits, vitamin C is a long-established skincare superstar that can help you achieve younger, healthier and more radiant skin.

However, like any ingredient in a recipe, skincare is a bit more than any single ingredient to keep your skin in great shape.

Image Skin Care Vital C sold at Make Me Fabulous in Ballston SpaAt Make Me Fabulous, we offer the Image Skin Care line-up, best known for its high level of active ingredients. The Vital-C line from Image is loaded with Vitamin C and other anti oxidants that help provide brighter, healthier skin. Plus, it’s paraben-free! That means it won’t interact with your hormones like products containing parabens and it is less likely to clog pores.

Wash your face every night before bed or even right after dinner if you get too tired before bedtime. To erase the effects of sun damage, we like Image Skin Care’s Vital C Hydrating Facial Cleanser. It has a light tingle when you are rubbing it into your face that feels refreshing and a little zing-y.

Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate. As your summer tan wears off, so do your skin cells. Once a week, exfoliate your body to slough off some of those dead skin cells you won’t  need anymore. Try Image Skin Care’s Body Spa Exfoliating Body Scrub–it will improve cell turnover while nourishing and hydrating the skin.

Decrease stress. We know stress isn’t good for any part of your body and it may increase your chance for disease, affect your mood, and contributes to weight gain. It will also make your skin sallow and dry. Do something for yourself at least once a day, even if you take just twenty minutes like read a good book, meditate, do yoga, exercise, get together with friends or work on a hobby. Find something that will help you breathe and take your mind of your daily routine and challenges.

Moisturize. We really like Image Skin Care’s Vital C Hydrating Intensive Moisturizer. It immediately replenishes moisture for all-day hydration and restores youthful resilience for perfectly polished and glowing skin.
