Discover the power of Vitamin C with C-Infusion Skincare

Vitamin C serves its purpose in defending and protecting the skin. It also operates as a tremendously, valuable antioxidant available for skin care formulations. Antioxidants offer protection to the skin and prevent accelerated skin aging while nourishing and supplementing its deeper layers and fighting free radical damage.

Free radicals cause chronic damage to the cells of the skin and antioxidants can neutralize these dangerous molecules. Applying antioxidants topically is one way of solving the problem of getting additional antioxidants into the skin. Vitamin C improves the appearance of skin, prevents wrinkles, and is essential in cell proliferation. It can also be used for the treatment of hyperpigmentation as a tyrosinase inhibitor.

Many forms of Vitamin C are available on the market and that may cause difficulty in determining the best selection. There are several types of unstable forms of Vitamin C, such as L-Ascorbic acid. Although L-Ascorbic acid is commonly used in our industry, it is a form of vitamin c that is considered unstable. Studies show that L-Ascorbic Acid is difficult to deliver into the dermis in the optimum dosage. Therefore, research has turned towards finding more stable forms of Vitamin C. The most stable type of Vitamin C was discovered within the last 10 years. It’s a compound called BV-OSC. BV-OSC is the trade name. However, the scientific name of this ingredient which, will be found on the product’s ingredient label is Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate.

Unlike, the water-soluble L-Ascorbic Acid, BV-OSC is oil soluble. Studies have shown that BV-OSC is a more stable, less irritating, longer lasting, and a deeply penetrating form of Vitamin C. Clinical studies show that this form is three times more penetrating than L-Ascorbic Acid. It lasts longer within the skin and promotes up to 50% more collagen production. The enhanced penetration of this oil soluble Vitamin C also means that you do not need a high percentage of BV-OSC. Comparatively, if BV-OSC is three times more penetrating than L-Ascorbic Acid then a 10% BV-OSC is comparable to a 20-30% solution of L-Ascorbic Acid.

Vitamin C does not absorb UV light but exerts a UV-protective affect by neutralizing free radicals, while this effect is not seen with sunscreens. The solution to this is to incorporate an oil-soluble Vitamin C into your morning skin care regimen. This addition will enhance the efficacy of your sunscreen, protect your skin from environmental damage, and prevent early signs of aging and UV exposure. If your skin needs a “pick me up” then, you need to pick up a product that contains BV-OSC! You’ll C the results immediately.

Keeping your hands looking their best

Shellac Nails are the most popular nail treatment at Essential Beauty Clinic. They have a unique formulation that applies like a polish, yet sets and offers the durability of gel nails. Shellac Nails have a mirror finish which can last around 2 weeks, zero dry time and doesn’t cause any damage to your natural nails.

We offer Shellac nails as part of a range of manicure and pedicure packages. Or if you’re really pushed for time, a simple file and polish with Shellac can easily be slotted into your lunch break.

What happens during a Signature Manicure Treatment with Shellac?

A Signature manicure begins with an application of nourishing oil and cuticle cream, followed by an exfoliator, which is worked into the hands and lower arms to slough away any dead cells and leave your skin feeling smoother, softer and fresher. After soaking the nails for several minutes, your beauty therapist will get to work trimming your cuticles and filing your nails, before a gorgeously thick and deliciously scented moisturising cream is worked into your hands and arms in a soothing massage.

It’s then time for the Shellac Nails application

The base coat is applied using much the same technique as you would apply everyday polish; brushed on each finger from the base of the nail to the tip. Each hand is then placed under a UV lamp for just 10 seconds to set the Shellac Nails.

What colours are available for Shellac Nails?

The choice of colours ranges from pale shell pink to bright corals and dark plums, and a French finish is also available. The colour which is applied in two coats, each of which is set under the UV lamp for two minutes, before a final top coat is applied, again taking just 2 minutes to set. Once your nails emerge from the UV lamp, they will be completely dry so there’s no risk of spoiling the finish by denting, smudging or marking the polish when you slip your jacket on or rummage in your handbag afterwards.

Removing Shellac Nails

When the time comes to remove the Shellac, we will soak your nails in remover pads for just 5-10 minutes, another reason why Shellac Nails are perfect for today’s busy lifestyle.

Do’s and don’ts

Shellac gives your nails a hard wearing coating which really helps to protect your nails from everyday wear. To get the best out of your Shellac Nails, please remember to use them as ‘jewels not tools’ as they are not infallible and always wear gloves when using chemicals such as cleaning products.

Prices: £20
