4 Harmful Natural Ingredients that Aren’t So Skincare Friendly

Happy Halloween to all our Spooktacular Renewers out there!!

As this holiday season approaches us, whether you celebrate it or not – we want to remind you of the harmful natural ingredients that you should stay away from when it comes to skincare. Natural skincare remedies can be truly effective – in moderation and with the help of trusted research. Still, there are those natural household ingredients that may be great on their own but when mixed into your skincare and skin regime can be more harmful than anything. Continue reading to find out the 4 most harmful natural ingredients used in skincare that can do more harm than good.

Olive oil

  • Although olive oil is a rather heavy oil and thus it does not seep or absorb into the skin’s barrier it can do more harm than good in the long run. Olive oil can be known to cause breakouts in both sensitive and acne-prone skin. The heavy and greasiness can be very abrasive on the skin and cause rashes and or skin irritations. In addition, those prone to blackheads specifically may see an increase when using olive oil on the skin in large amounts. With that said, the use of olive oil is very dependent on the individual’s skin – that is why we recommend you consult with your dermatologist before using this as an at-home remedy or in at-home skin facials. If you don’t have a dermatologist, don’t fret you can consult with us here at Renew and our staff is here to help you every step of the way.

 

Lemon Juice

  • As lemon juice in the skin and wellness community is known to help with discolouration and inflammation – once again it is an ingredient that can cause more harm over the years. The high acidity of lemon juice can sadly cause permanent damage to the skin, no matter how sensitive your skin is. Lemon juice can alter the natural PH of our acid mantle which in turn can impact and cause skin irritation and hyperpigmentation. So next time you use Kemon juice to help with inflammation just remember the dangers the juice can cause over time.

Essential Oils

  • Although they can do wonders to soothe and calm us down, these holy grails of the wellness community are not something that you should put onto your skin. The reason why is very similar to why the skincare community and skin care professionals urge clientele to not use scents in their products, simple the better something smells is a clear indicator that it may contain artificial and unnatural ingredients- the more of these that the more likely the products can harm, damage and irate your skin. The skin damage over time can result in skin conditions like dryness, redness and itchiness.

Coconut Oil

  • Coconut oil when mixed with other ingredients, used in small doses and diluted to some degrees can be very beneficial to the skin. However, some studies say that overuse of this natural ingredient can be very harmful to the skin. This is because, coconut oil is simply comedogenic, meaning that will clog the pores on your face. Coconut oil is so thick that when applied to the skin barrier it will not absorb at all, it will just lay on the skin’s outermost layer and start to blog and fill our pores. It can also disrupt your skin’s pH balance. So, when using this natural ingredient, we urge you to please do your research and possibly consult a dermatologist. Again, if you don’t have a dermatologist, don’t fret you can consult with us here at Renew and our staff is here to help you every step of the way.

Now we know all this information can be very overwhelming to consumers all at once. Luckily here at Renew all pour the products and aliments used on your skin are all natural. We aim to use organic, clean and simple beauty that is not only good for the environment but great for your all clientele.

Self-Care -In The Off-Season? Yes – It’s Crucial!

Self-Care -In The Off-Season? Yes – It’s Crucial!

As the cooler weather eases its way into our daily routines we want to remind you of the importance of skin hydration in the transitional months of the year. Typically as it gets cooler, our skin tends to get dry as there is less moisture in the air – as a result, our skin barrier weakens. All the time we once spent investing in our skin routines in the summer can be swept away if we aren’t proactive with our skin regimes and wellness routines in the later months of the year. The holiday season approaches and our schedules become more and more hectic – but here at Renew are here to remind you of the importance of skin hydration and keeping your skin routine consistent in the cooler season. Here are 3 easy tips to help infuse your skins hydration in the cooler season.

  1. Meet with an expert – Just as you start to notice the seasons change, we recommend that you consult your dermatologist. If you don’t have one at the moment you can always book your fr skin consultation here at Renew. Our licenced specialists will use our skin analyzer machine as well as our other practices to analyse your skin. From there we can accurately treat and recommend you the optimal skin routine complete with customized Renew treatments and facials.

  2. Try to incorporate natural, organic, fragrance-free products –You must try to incorporate clean products into our skins regime. It can be difficult, we know – the wellness industry is oversaturated with products and ingredients that can overcomplicate your skin routine and be harmful to your skin barrier. At Renew we make it easy for you to incorporate simple and clean products into your routine as all the products we use for our facial treatments are either Aulimer or Green Envee. Both companies are committed to using clean and simple ingredients to enrich your skin needs.
  3. Prioritize and make time for your wellness –Just as it is important to watch what you put onto your skin – we must also be mindful of the foods that we ingest. As life gets hectic it can become very simple to forget meals and forget to prioritise your wellness. We can all gain from prioritizing and boosting our overall wellness in life. Sometimes it’s just difficult to know where to start. Some of the drips we offer are already curated to help boost certain parts of one’s wellness journey. For instance, the immune IV Drip is about strengthening your immune system and health through vitamins. The drips include C, B and Zinc, B1, B2 B3 pro-B5, B6, B7, B9, B12, Vitamin A, E, Amino Acid blend, Selenium and Magnesium. IV at Renew is a great way to invest in your wellness and get your body the enrichment it needs.

Here at Renew we want you to continue to invest in yourself- all year around. As seasons change and the weather can seem uncertain – our skin care regime can be the constant that you need to help keep you balanced. We are here to help – every step of the way.

IV THERAPY FOR BEGINNERS – How To Implement IV Shots Into Your Routine

Iv therapy (a moderately newly developed medical technique used to deliver medication and or vitamin fluids to the body through your veins), can be a crucial part of one’s wellness journey and overall routine. At Renew, our IV Therapy is an immune-boosting medical treatment typically customized to address individual client needs. At Renew Spa and Wellness in Markham, our IV Treatments are made to order, managing our clients’ specific needs. We are here to help cater the IV treatments to every one of our clientele’s lifestyles and find the best and most beneficial drips for your lifestyle.

Active Lifestyles:
When having an active lifestyle, it can be advantageous and difficult to incorporate wellness into your daily routine. Specifically, some of the many benefits of IV therapy are the improvement of body circulation and athletic performance recovery. IV therapy allows you to get the necessary nutrients at a faster rate thus recovering faster from workouts and athletic performance allowing you to get back into your routine.

Some of the drips we offer include:

  • Immune IV Drip (Protect/ Repair/ Supercharge) -A vitamin drip that improves immune health. Vitamin includes C, B and Zinc, B1, B2 B3 pro-B5, B6, B7, B9, B12, Vitamin A, E, Amino Acid blend, Selenium and Magnesium
  • Energy IV Drip (Energize/ Regenerate/ Strengthen)-A vitamin drip that is targeted to enhance overall energy, mood, and focuses ability. Packed with Magnesium, B12, B2, B1, B3, B6, B5, B9, Vitamin C, D and A.
  • Vitamin D Shots -Shots of concentrated vitamin D will help maintain good bone density, and teeth and can help with regulating insulin levels for those that are diabetic
  • B12 Shots -Shots of concentrated vitamin B will help maintain overall good health and wellbeing.

Busy and or Hectic Lifestyles:
As we navigate our busy schedules with work, school, and other commitments, it can be difficult to prioritize self-care and putting ourselves first. When this happens, sadly the neglect can manifest in ways that are harmful to our bodies, minds, and overall wellness. IV can be the easy and fast solution to your problem. Instead of finding the right combination of vitamins and minerals to ingest, you can get more of the vitamin’s nutrients through IV therapy. We here at Renew will work with you to come up with your ideal schedule and ideal drips to take. You can come in once a week, get hooked up for your b-12 drip and work on the go at the clinic as you are hooked up. The treatments are painless, and efficient and the results are immediate.

Overall Wellness:
We can all gain from prioritizing and boosting our overall wellness in life. Sometimes it’s just difficult to know where to start. Some of the drips we offer are already curated to help boost certain parts of one’s wellness journey. For instance, the immune IV Drip is all about strengthening your immune system and immune health through vitamins. The drips include C, B and Zinc, B1, B2 B3 pro-B5, B6, B7, B9, B12, Vitamin A, E, Amino Acid blend, Selenium and Magnesium.

As IV therapy is new, it can be scary to embark on this treatment. That is why we are here, we at Renew are here to educate and relieve any anxiety that may arise when considering this treatment. We want to Markham community to feel its best and start by offering the best in the wellness industry. Our certified staff will be with you every step of the way and will work alongside you to create the perfect IV treatment schedule for your lifestyle and overall wellness goals.

5 Amazing Tips to Enhance your Skincare Routine

5 Amazing Tips to Enhance your Skincare Routine

At Renew, our clinical experts and dermatologists recommend a few effortless tips to revitalize your skincare routine. Some of these are tricks that you can use on a daily basis, and you can enjoy smoother, radiant, and younger-looking skin.

Follow these skincare routine steps and let us know what worked best for you.

  1. Wash/Clean your Face at Least Twice A Day:

Yes, we get it. Sometimes laziness triumphs and procrastination gets the best of us, but we must remember the importance of washing our faces. Think of it this way, you had a long hectic day, let a simple face cleanse be your way of getting rid of the day. You’ll wipe away all the work, stress and tension that has built up and leave you with a refreshed and rejuvenated base that will thank you later. Our clinical experts at Renew encourage this crucial step as it is the best skin care habit to have that helps enhance your glowing skin. Just as you are devoted to brushing your teeth daily, give your face that needed cleanse as well.

  1. Consume A More Plant-Based Diet:

We tend to consume too much protein, especially animal protein, which is inflammatory and sadly helps accelerate the ageing process. Replacing a few meals with plant-based alternatives will do good for your mind, body and overall wellness. Complementing your best skin care products with a plant-based diet will make your skin less irritated, hydrate and help to protect itself from pollutants and other harmful particles.

  1. Have a Therapeutic Facial Massage:

At Renew, our massages are built with the objective of not only relaxing the body but also helping your skin to flush out metabolic waste. Our facial massages are one of the most popular skincare routine steps for our customers. Over time our skin can look puffy and we also notice dark circles that make our face look unhappy.

 We are a firm believer in following the utmost skincare routine steps for glowing skin, and we aim to make our customers realize that it is not so difficult. All it takes is for you to book a facial massage with Renew and see the results for yourself.

 Click here to check out details on our facial massage therapies.

  1. Keep Yourself Hydrated:

Staying hydrated is one of the best things about making your skin glow naturally at home. Drinking water can help your skin remain graceful and keep your body functional. Start by replacing or simply accompanying that cup of coffee with a glass of water and start to see the difference. Remember! Hydration is the synonym for moisturizing for the skincare routine.

 

  1. Seek Professional Treatments:

Sometimes, skin issues cannot be dealt with at home. This is the time we turn to experts for professional treatments. Facial treatments, such as micro-needling and chemical peel, can yield surprising results for your skin. It is essential to go to a reliable expert who will first analyze your skin condition and then suggest the best treatment for your skin.

At Renew, our skin experts are focused on improving the skin health of customers through proven treatments. Check out our skincare treatments here.

These are a few simple skincare practices that help us live more thoughtfully and give us long-lasting radiant and glowing skin! Try incorporating these tips into your skincare routine for glowing skin and relive the beautiful skin that awaits!
