What treatments do you recommend for dark circles under the eyes?

Dark circles appear under the eyes for a number of reasons and can be treated in different ways. First, the fat around the eyeball can start to droop and become “baggy”. This condition can be treated with a relatively simple 30-minute surgical procedure to reduce the fat.

Secondly, laser resurfacing can be performed under the eyes to reduce the appearance of lines and sometimes address discoloration of the eyelid skin as well – although the procedure won’t work for people with dark skin.

This condition can be improved through fat transfers or filler injections to smooth out the creasing. When one or all three procedures are performed the appearance of those dark circles is often drastically improved.

Soothing Magnesium Foot Scrub


A liquid oil like almond or olive oil moisturizes skin, while the roughness of the magnesium exfoliates. This scrub is naturally unscented, though a variety of essential oils can be added for scent and additional skin benefits.
A pinch of cinnamon powder and a few drops of peppermint essential oil make a festive scrub, or rose petals and lavender oil make a floral version. Some other great combinations would be:
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 10 drops citrus essential oil and 5 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 5 drops lemon essential oil and 5 drops rosemary essential oil
If you don’t want a salt/magnesium based scrub or are getting magnesium from other sources, sugar can also be used in place of the salt to make a simple sugar scrub with many custom options for scent and color.

INDERMICA Pro-Infusion Facial Treatments

Regular facial treatments help to maintain a regular pattern of exfoliation and healthy skin.

 When the skin is properly and frequently exfoliated, the cell turnover increases; resulting in softer skin that is more even in tone, less prone to breakouts and shows fewer signs of ageing.


Relax. Refresh. Revive. In Office.
The INDERMICA Pro Facial is a results-oriented, massage infusion technique that layers performance ingredients directly into the skin. Performed in-office, the INDERMICA regimen instantly reveals a brighter, healthier, more resilient skin tone.

In fact, you will see a significant improvement after just one treatment

3 Beauty Products You Can Make Right at Home

What better way to instantly beautify your skin than using natural ingredients that you probably have on hand already? Any time I have a skin dilemma, I usually find myself going through my kitchen pantry to find a solution. Below you can find some of my favorite beauty solutions that you probably already have on hand.
1. Raw Honey. When my skin is acting up or I have a breakout, I find myself reaching for this stuff. I’ll dab a little on my blemishes as a spot treatment or apply it as an all-over face mask. The natural antibacterial and probiotic properties speed up healing and reduce breakouts. Sometimes I add even more ingredients to the mix. See below for one of my favorite home-made masks made with just 3 ingredients: Raw Honey, Whole Milk Yogurt, and my 100% Pure Argan oil as the base!
2 teaspoons Raw Honey
2 teaspoons plain Whole Milk Yogurt
Mix ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Spread the mixture over face and let sit for 10-25 minutes. Remove with warm cloth or gently wash off with water while working the mask into skin for added physical exfoliation. Add more of less of any ingredient to customize the mask to your desired consistency.
Raw Honey is loaded with antioxidants, enzymes, and antibacterial properties that work to hydrate, clarify, and nourish skin
The lactic acid in the yogurt smooths skin, refines pores, and stimulated collagen production. 
Argan Exfoliating Cleansing Powder is full of natural powerhouses like tea tree, ginkgo biloba, and green tea to clarify and sooth inflamed skin as well as papain to exfoliate dead skin cells from the inside out
2. Apple Cider Vinegar. Definitely not the first thing you think of when you think of beauty–but trust me on this one! I drink a full glass of water with a tablespoon of Apple cider vinegar to help cleanse and detoxify my system. Another trick: Whenever I get a bruise, I pour apple cider vinegar on a cotton round and apply daily until gone. It really helps to diminish the color. Vinegar also helps add shine to your hair, just make sure to rinse!
3. Turmeric. Not only is in great in Indian food (my favorite), but turmeric has incredible benefits on the skin. I love to mix in a dash of turmeric with my 100% Pure Argan Oil once a week to give my skin even more of a glow. Your skin will be dewy, beautiful, and bright!

Oil Change! Six Natural Oils for Healthy Skin and Hair

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil, extracted from the coconut plant, is a great moisturiser for all types of skin. It helps fight wrinkles and sagging of the skin. It can also be used in the hair, as a great conditioner and moisturiser. It softens the hair and leaves it shiny, while also conditioning the scalp and fighting dandruff.

Castor Oil

Obtained by pressing the seeds of the Castor plant, castor oil can benefit both hair and skin. Massaging it directly into the scalp promotes healthy hair growth and helps scalp problems like dandruff and itchy or dry scalp. It seals extra moisture into hair, making it a good conditioner additive for those with dry or relaxed hair. Castor oil can also help prevent skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, itchy skin and rashes.
