We all want great skin and throughout history human complexions have been important signs of health and beauty. Smoking, sun exposure and poor nutrition are the more obvious culprits we know to avoid. And what about free radicals? Avoiding total exposure to free radicals is clearly not possible, and avoiding pollution, pesticides and UV radiation can be tough. The truth is it takes some effort to keep our skin healthy and these 10 tips will go a long way in getting you there…

1) Drink Water all day long to maintain your skin’s elasticity and decrease signs of aging. This is even more important as we grow older to flush our bodies of toxins.

2) Use a moisturizer and sunscreen combo every day. Even when we are exposed to the sun for short intervals throughout the day, the effects are notable. Fine lines, wrinkles will appear at a higher rate.

3) Limit long showers and baths that strip your body’s natural oils from your skin and avoid harsh soaps when you do shower. Be sure to pat yourself dry and moisturize immediately.

4) Exercise regularly and sweat out the cortisol. Your face will thank you with this natural cleanse and you will have a healthy glow after you are done.

5) Avoid junk food. Did you know that certain foods speed up glycation in your skin? Glycation is when sugar molecules latch onto cells, including those in skin, and cause them to become malformed and accelerate the breakdown of collagen. The end result: loss of radiance, more noticeable lines, and skin that doesn't look as supple. Overdoing it with carbs and dairy has been linked to acne as well. Antioxidants are compounds that can be found in food and can help delay damage to our cells by free radicals.

6) Get a full body exam by a Dermatologist. Let a specialist check you out from head to toe as early detection for skin cancers is key. If you are 30 or over it’s time to schedule that visit.

7) Use targeted exfoliators. Simply put, those dead skin cells clog pores and create a dull appearance.

8) Gently remove your makeup way before bedtime. Your face needs to rid itself of pore clogging build up from the day. Try and remove your makeup when you get home from work, those fresh-faced extra hours will benefit you greatly. Use extra care when removing eye makeup as the surrounding skin is very delicate.

9) Sleep on a clean pillowcase. Makeup, saliva and dead skin cells oh my!

10) Last but definitely not least: Schedule your facial appointments. When it comes to renewing skin cells, blood flow circulation,

exfoliation and toning your skin, Forbici Facials and Skin Treatments rule the day. We offer a multitude of skin services from relaxing facials to back treatments. Be sure and speak to one of our skin care professionals to learn recommendations for our wonderful line of skin products at Forbici.

What is Androgenetic alopecia/female pattern alopecia/female pattern hair loss?

This is the most common type of hair loss and typically occurs over the top of the head and on the sides.

More than 50% of women will experience noticeable hair loss in their lifetime. Any woman can be affected by hair loss. However, it is usually more common in Menopausal women. Menopause is a natural biological process that all women experience at some point in their lives. During this time, the body goes through numerous physical changes as it adjusts to fluctuating hormone levels. Most women experience overall hair thinning rather than noticeable bald spots.

For women going through menopause, the cause of hair loss is almost always related to hormonal changes. However, there are many other factors that can contribute to hair loss during menopause. These include extremely high levels of stress, illness, or a lack of certain nutrients. Diagnostic blood tests that can help rule out other causes of hair loss include thyroid tests, and/or a complete blood count. There are multiple reasons that women may suffer hair thinning and can include:

  • Women older than 40

  • Women who have just had babies

  • Women who have had undergone chemotherapy and those who have been affected by certain medications

  • Women who often have hairstyles that pull on the hair (like tight ponytails or tight braids) or frequently use harsh chemicals on their hair

Did you know there are an abundance of myths surrounding hair loss?

  • Excessive shampooing or coloring

  • Stress causes permanent hair loss in women

  • If you cut your hair it will grow back thicker

  • If you brush your hair every day it will make your hair healthier

  • Hats and wigs cause hair loss in women

At Forbici, ongoing education is critical for furthering the skills that continue to make our stylists “next level.” It’s no secret that the beauty industry is constantly evolving and new products are created to meet those changes. With the new trends, clients demand more services, so likewise, stylists need to be on the ready to meet those demands!

We are firmly committed to the ongoing training and education events that supports the advancement of our Forbici family. Top Forbici stylist Kathryn Wereminski, reflects that she “benefitted so much from all of the education she continues to receive while working at Forbici Salon and Spa!” One of her favorite aspects of her training experience has been receiving product updates from the well known brands they use. She never feels like she’s out of touch with what’s new and emerging!

Did you know that Forbici Salon and Spa is a teaching salon that utilizes an associate program from Summit Salon Business Center. The program lasts anywhere from 5-8 months depending on how fast you’re moving through the curriculum. This program was put together to help newly graduated cosmetology students enter into the world of hair with mentoring from senior stylists that are part of our mentorship/education team.

During the mentorship program, stylists are required to attend all “in-salon” education, complete assignments and bring in guest models on specific days. Associates start with one opportunity day a week, bringing in guests of their own. Guests are typically family and friends. Associates also work side by side with mentors assisting guests and learning new techniques. Associates assist with color application and highlights, along with blow-drying and curling techniques. Mentorship training provides confidence building and even greater insights to the guest experience.

We provide education 1-2 times per quarter depending on what the team feels is needed by the stylists of the salon. Education covers cutting skills, color techniques and product knowledge classes. In addition, stylists keep up on current trends through Instagram and Facebook Live platforms.

At Forbici, We are proud to focus on both the satisfaction and advancement of our team. This commitment to making our team feel important, valued, and trusted is the key to ensuring longevity and dependability, and contributing to the long-term satisfaction of the guests that we serve.
