Our Urban Squeeze Professionals
Urban Squeeze prides themselves in not only hiring the finest spa professionals but also employing modern techniques that are proven to make our clients look and feel their best. Meta has 13 years of cosmetology experience and continues to educate herself and grow her skill set. Her passion began watching how the sun affected her fellow beachgoers while growing up near the water. This led her to a strict skin care routine that she gratefully passes along to her clients. She is educated in everything from chemical peels to eye creams, yet her latest passion has been Cyroskin.
Meta says, “Cyroskin is for individuals which working out is just not enough. It is non-invasive and permanent, and I love it because I am seeing results after just one session with my clients.”
Cryoskin uses cooling technology that aids in targeting stubborn fat cells and works to tone skin. Cryo can be performed on the face and the body and has been proven over and over to have positive effects. It is a simple non-invasive procedure you can have performed over your lunch break. To book your Cyroskin appointment with our resident expert visit www.urbansqueezemassage.com or call 720-445-5228. We look forward to seeing your transformation!
1. Seasonal Skin Moisturizers
Seasons are not always created equally. In the winter months your skin is often drier and lacks moisture, so a heavier cream is optimal. In the summer humidity is a factor and the heavier moisturizer can cause breakouts and, in most cases, can contribute to oily skin. Our Urban Squeeze experts recommend switching up your skincare regimen with a lightweight product like Hale & Hush’s Vital Lipid Moisturizer or Skin Scripts Light Aloe Moisturizer.
2. Collagen Supplements
Collagen promotes a youthful look and can ward off fine lines and skin sagging. We recommend Ben Fuch’s Truth Treatment System Collagen Supplements to increase plumpness and lift eyelids and extenuate cheekbones.
3. Ditch the Foundation
Heavy foundations can be toxic to your pores. During the heated months we urge you to consider a tinted moisturizer instead of a foundation. Also, consider doing your pores a favor and challenge yourself to 100 days without make-up. Truly, it can revolutionize your skins glow.
Don’t be afraid to get active and detox – your skin goes through cycles and can really benefit from a healthy water purge.
Have you heard the phrase, “you are what you eat?” It also includes what you drink. Be sure to stay hydrated to avoid fine lines. As the humidity rises the need for water also arises. Your body will ration its water supply and your skin is a key indicator in telling you if you are dehydrated.
What are the benefits?
Fresh, glowing skin and less wrinkles? Yes please! There are so many different types of peels that target different skin issues.
Who can get them?
If you have skin, you can get a peel. As stated above, there are so many different types and levels of peels. If you don’t have any allergies or other contraindications (pregnancy is a common one) there is a peel for you. We see clients wanting a simple brightening peel all the way to those wanting to take down their acne scars.
What about the down time?
Although the word ‘peel’ is in the name that does not mean your skin will actually peel. A lactic peel, often called “lunchtime peels”, is a quick and easy peel aimed to brighten the complexion with no downtime. While a TCA peel (pictured above) penetrates deeper into the epidermis for more anti-aging benefits and will cause physical shedding of skin. But unless you’re going to a physician with the intention of peeling off your entire epidermis (outermost layer of your skin), you won’t need to worry about leaving with a bright red face.
