Address Winter Skin with Eminence

As the days grow shorter and the air colder, many of us will find our skin feeling dry and itchy. This past week, we were met with a blast of cold air and winter weather, plunging temperatures well down below freezing. An added wind chill makes any journey outdoors a brutal one! 

Exposure to the cold is inevitable, as are the effects of winter air on your skin. Less moisture means drier skin for many, which leads to itchiness and irritation. When skin loses moisture, it overcompensates by producing more oil, which can sometimes result in break outs and a tired, dull appearance. Combat winter dryness this year and restore your skin back to a healthy, glowing complexion by enhancing your skin care routine with the following products specially formulated by Eminence Organic Skin Care.

It seems like no matter how much you moisturize, the coldness has a way of stripping away any remaining hydration in your skin. It's for this reason that Eminence's Facial Recovery Oil is our go-to product this month. This stuff is liquid gold- suitable for all skin types, two small drops work wonders in reviving tired and aged skin.

This top-selling lightweight organic oil deeply nourishes and hydrates skin, restoring moisture and balancing the skin's overall complexion. Olive, Clary Sage, Ylang Ylang, Tea Tree, and Sesame oil contain calming and anti-inflammatory properties, leaving skin smooth and soft. Rue and Sage Leaf Extract hold antibacterial properties that soothe the skin and allow for deep hydration. The Facial Recovery Oil "reduces fine lines and wrinkles up to 43% and increases hydration by up to 53% in just 28 days." Treat and heal your skin to a bright and healthy complexion, and say farewell to dry skin this winter season!

Skincare meets the sea with Eminence

"IMMERSE YOUR SKIN IN THE MARINE FLOWER PEPTIDE COLLECTION TO REVEAL A MORE RADIANT, YOUTHFUL-LOOKING COMPLEXION WITH FEWER FINE LINES AND WRINKLES."

We are excited to introduce two brand new Eminence Organic Skin Care products here at Citrine! Composed of globally sourced plant and algae ingredients, the Marine Flower Peptide Collection consists of an eye cream and a serum that are ideal for all skin types. These products utilize the "superfoods of the sea" to create the new Smart Collagen Complex.

Eminence's new Smart Collagen Complex truly sets this collection apart. By activating the skin's own production of high quality, "smart" collagen, collagen density doubles and skin is left lifted and wrinkles filled. 

The plant peptides featured in this line are naturally derived from rice protein, making it easily absorbed by the skin. These peptides speed up the skin renewal process, improving texture and tone while boosting elasticity. 

The real star of this product, though, is globally sourced and sustainable algae. The Marine Flower Peptide Collection does not contain any shellfish or animal-derived ingredients. The algae is sourced from the Java Islands, Oregon, West Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Atlantic Coast. Delivering nutrient-rich minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants, algae supplies the skin with long-lasting hydration and firmness. These organisms naturally defend themselves against sun damage and premature aging, and have been shown to deliver similar results when used on the skin. 


Introducing Our Newest Team Member

This week we are excited to announce the newest addition to our talented team here at Citrine Salon- Imane!

IMG_1108.JPG

Imane (pronounced ee-mon) is joining us as an esthetician with more than 4 years of experience in the industry.

Imane is originally from Rabat, Morocco, having moved to the United States 11 years ago. She is fluent in English, Arabic, and French. Imane obtained her Bachelor's degree in Psychology and worked as a nurse's assistant upon moving to the states. Nevertheless, her long-time passion for skincare and beauty is what drew her to aesthetics.

Imane's favorite aspect of skincare is seeing a positive change in her client's skin. She believes that everyone can achieve beautiful, healthy skin, and finds the process of getting them there an extremely rewarding one. She treats her client's skin as her own, and wants nothing but the best results for them. 

In addition, Imane specializes in waxing! She knows her way around the wax pot and loves to use hard wax. We are ecstatic to have her on board to assist all of our clients that schedule routine waxing services. Her gentle touch and expertise ensure a fast and painless waxing experience.

Being a certified Eminence skincare expert, Imane's favorite Eminence product is the Bamboo Firming Fluid. She loves its anti-aging properties and how wrinkles quickly diminish after continued use. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant is another one of Imane's favorites, for its ability to lightly exfoliate the skin and reduce pore size. 

Imane is with us Tuesday's, Wednesday's, Friday's and Saturday's. We are looking forward to having her clientele join us at Citrine- if you'd like to schedule any skin or waxing services with her please call or email us. We can't wait for you to meet her!

 

 

Eminence Top Sellers at Citrine Salon

Since we introduced Eminence Organic Skin Care at Citrine Salon in May, the products have been hard to keep in stock. We knew we were going to love the line immediately, but were not expecting such positive feedback so soon! The all-natural, plant-based Hungarian skin care line was founded under the same beliefs and principles as Citrine, and we knew it would be a perfect match. 

Eminence is one of the most extensive professional and retail product lines in the industry for both face and body. It is natural, organic, and Biodynamic- sporting a broad array of products that treat all skin conditions and concerns. We love that all the products are developed using concentrated formulas, making them cost effective, and are guaranteed to deliver results in the healthiest way possible. 

Nevertheless, we've noticed clients gravitate more towards a couple products in particular. Not only have our clients achieved dramatic results with these products at Citrine, but they are best-sellers across the entire Eminence brand. These past few months, we've barely been able to keep the following products on our shelves: 

1. Bamboo Firming Fluid

If you're looking to achieve a tighter, smoother, lifted appearance, this is answer. The widely popular Bamboo Firming Fluid dramatically firms and tightens skin, reduces visible signs of aging, and increases the skin's ability to stay youthful. Bamboo contains soluble and insoluble fiber, anti-oxidants, proteins, vitamins, and minerals for stronger skin. A natural Retinol alternative complex immediately lifts and tightens with the help of chicory root and tara tree gum. Also within Bamboo Firming Fluid is a Swiss Green Apple stem cell concentrate, coconut oil, coconut water, Monoi, Yam, Carrot, Neroli oil, and Eminence's Biocomplex antioxidant booster.

2. Stone Crop Gel Wash

For those with dry, sensitive, or irritated skin, Stone Crop Gel Wash provides gentle cleansing without drying the skin. Formulated without harsh parabens or sulfates, impurities are washed away to reveal hydrated, smooth skin. Stone Crop, or Sedum, is a genus of succulent, used for its hydrating and healing benefits. A light soap base cleanses and softens the skin, while shea butter works as an antiseptic to restore skin to a calm state. Within the first few uses, you'll notice cleaner skin that doesn't feel "stripped" of it's natural hydration, as well as the removal of surface build-up and impurities. The skin's complexion is left cleared and glowing, with pores that are purified and tightened.

3. Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant

One of the team's personal favorites, Eminence's Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant is a daily use rice-based exfoliant and cleanser. A gentle exfoliator, impurities and clogged pores are lightly smoothed away, cleansing and infusing the skin with antioxidants and vitamins. Strawberry works as an astringent, naturally containing salicylic acid that gently removes impurities to brighten skin and shrink pores. Rhubarb acts as a disinfectant, and is a good source of ascorbic acid and Vitamin C. Lactic acid, rice, chickpea flour, and oats exfoliate, deep cleanse, and absorb excess oil. Eminence's Biocomplex booster ensures maximum mineral and vitamin absorption. Skin is perfectly cleansed and refined, leaving a smooth and polished texture.
