GliSODin Advanced Daily

Glisodin's Advanced Daily Formula rejuvenates and hydrates the skin to promote a natural glow. It's a nutrient-dense product that helps protect your skin from environment factors and works to diminish premature aging by providing antioxidant and restorative properties.

It also helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce inflammation that causes flaky dry skin and redness and maintains the structural integrity of the skin and collagen.

If you suffer from psoriasis, eczema or extremely dry skin GliSODin Advanced Daily will really help the overall quality of your skin.

Itchy, Flaky and Tight Skin?

Stepping up your night time moisturizer to something richer and more nourishing can make all the difference to have hydrated, glowing skin. The harsh coldness of the outdoors and the increased dryness indoors from heating systems work together to dry your skin out. Take care of your skin by applying a thicker moisturizer after cleansing and see the difference such a small change can make!

Lock that Moisture In!

GM Collin's Ceramides are a fast, convenient way to lock in moisture and to protect against environmental stress. Each golden bead is filled with a dry oil complex that you apply after moisturizer. The oil absorbs within 30 seconds but your skin stays hydrated and protected. If your skin has been irritated or feeling the effects of winter Ceramides can help calm the irritation. They work for any skin type or condition! If you have oily skin, Ceramides can replace your moisturizer. Plus, the individual use capsules are perfect for traveling!

Exfoliate. Exfoliate. Exfoliate!

The heaters are cranked, the fire is blazing and the air is getting drier inside our homes. If you've noticed your skin feeling tight and itchy or your skin absorbs moisturizer in an instant it's time to exfoliate. Exfoliating is the best way to slough off dead skin cells and to create an even surface for applying skincare products and make up. At home we recommend using an enzyme based exfoliant -- they are the most effective and the least reactive, especially compared to granular scrubs. We recommend using an enzyme based exfoliant 2-3 times a week. If you come into the spa we highly recommend getting a series of AHA treatments. AHA stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acid. These treatments will remove all of the dead skin cells and leave your skin bright, rejuvenated and healthy.

Don't forget that the skin on your body needs love to! GM Collin's Body Exfoliation is a perfect choice. Prior to showering mix the body exfoliant with a small amount of water and rub into your skin in circular motions. Rinse off the emulsion in the shower to reveal silky smooth skin. Apply a moisturizing body lotion to keep your skin hydrated and soft.

Just a Friendly Reminder...

You can see it in the grocery stores, the malls and in the streets -- the holiday season is here! With the holidays coming sugar sweets, salty meals and perhaps just a little bit too much liquor (we're not judging!). This is just a friendly remind to DRINK WATER! Not only will it keep you hydrated, slow down your alcohol consumption and help you pace your meals, it'll also keep your skin healthy and hydrated. Who wants dry, flaky skin at the dinner table?!

Don't forget: sodas, liquor (duh!) and caffeinated beverages don't count! Unsweetened fruit juices (in small amounts), herbal teas and of course, plain water, are all great ways to get your 8 glasses of H20.

Holiday Gift Certificates

Instead of getting them a meaningless trinket get them the gift of relaxation -- a spa gift certificate! Check out the post below for our special holiday offers. Or, make your own Holiday Package by checking out our extensive list of spa services. If you're unsure what to get, you can always get a dollar amount instead! Don't forget, if you DO get a gift certificate for a service, they're more than welcome to use the dollar amount for any service of their choosing (excluding spa packages).

With Skindulgences convenient location in Newport Village you won't have to worry about battling the crowds at the mall -- our boutique shop is located in the heart of Port Moody, away from the hub bub of big shopping centers.
