A massage using CBD offers an unconventional way to get relief from muscle soreness, chronic pain, tension and stress.

 

Massage Benefits

 

  • Stress relief. Can lower heart rate and blood pressure in just one session of a massage. Adding CBD to your massage routine can significantly reduce stress levels.
  • Relaxation. Getting a massage will force you relax. Your body’s cortisol levels will decrease allowing you to be relaxed and restful.
  • Muscles. If you suffer from neck or back pain, releasing tension from your muscles might be what you are looking for. Massage therapy will help relax any tense muscles.
  • Headaches. Treat headaches and tension related headaches with a massage. By focusing on the neck, shoulders and head, tension that causes a headache is released.
  • Improves posture. Poor posture can have cruel effects on the body. Muscles are loose as the tension leaves; there is more flexibility in the body.

 

Incorporating CBD into Massage Therapy

 

The benefits of both massage therapy and CBD individually provide great relief to the body. When CBD is incorporated into massage therapy the results can be more intense. CBD will bind and act on the CB2 receptors which can be found near the skin. This will activate the endocannabinoid system to deliver pain relief.

 

Since CBD is non-psychoactive you do not have to worry about getting a high feeling from the CBD massage. It is derived from Hemp extracts and contains 0 % THC

 

 

CBD Can Benefit Your Health in Many Ways

 

CBD works on a cellular level and absorbs into your skin. It seems to work wonders for a wide variety of conditions. There are over 125 terpenes and over 80 cannabinoids in hemp and each strain has its own unique blend with different health benefits. Many studies have shown a variety of positive effects hemp extracts have on your body including pain relief , anti-inflammation , anxiety, stress relief, appetite, sleep, nausea and neuro protectants just to name a few.

 

The CBD Hemp Extract used in the massage is a plant based pain relief solution made with the highest quality organic ingredients. It’s NON-GMO, Cruelty Free, Deep Penetrating, Paraben Free and Made in the USA.

Washing your face may seem simple, but there’s actually an art to it. Let’s talk about the right way to clean your skinand we’ve got all the details right here. The most important thing? Making sure your face is clean, toned, and moisturized before you put on makeup or get into bed, since your skin rejuvenates naturally when you sleep. It may sound like a lot of work, but we’re here to make it easy for you.

Read on for our five simple steps to correctly washing your face:

Step #1: Wash your face with lukewarm water and a cleanser. Warm water helps lift the dirt out of your skin, but hot water can be too drying. Cleansers are hydrating, but if you wear a lot of makeup, you might also want to use a makeup remover.  After washing, dab your face with a toweldon’t rub. It will stretch your skin and lead to wrinkles.

Step #2: Take a cotton ball and dip it in toner and swipe it around your face, focusing on problem areas. For example, if you have an oily t-zone, toner is a huge help. You don’t need a lot! Just one soaked cotton ball is perfect.

Step #3: Serum is like vitamins for your skin. There are some amazing high-end ones, but you don’t need to spend to over due itwe have some amazing ones that you can get at our on line store. Use one or two pumps for your entire face. This is also a great way to address any specific issues you have with your skin, because they make serums for everything: anti-aging, moisturizing, redness, etc.

Step #4: You can also mix your serum in with your moisturizer, which cuts down on a step. For night, pick a heavier moisturizer, but for day, make sure you choose one with SPF if you’re not going to apply sunscreen on your own.

Step #5: The last stepdon’t forget your eye cream! The under eye area is the thinnest part of your skin, so it’s desperate for moisture. Massage or pat a pea-sized amount of eye cream under your eyes about half an inch under your brow bone. If you’re putting on makeup afterwards, wait a few minutes so the cream can sink in.


Hello my fabulous readers!

I wanted to write a post all about makeup tips and maybe a couple tricks! I hope you enjoy!

Tip #1: Knowing your skin type.

We all have different skin. Normal, oily, dry, normal-dry, normal-oily, combo skin etc. Step one will always be knowing your skin type. This determines what moisturizer you use, what primer you use and of course what foundation you apply! No one knows your skin better than yourself, so you tell me! What type of skin do you have? Once you’ve decided then you can go forward and purchase the products best for your skin! At Elements Salon and Wellness Spa we offer skin products for ALL skin types! So don’t forget to check that out!

Tip #2: Eyes=Prize.

The best part of makeup (in my professional opinion) is the EYES! Lets make your eyes pop! Your eyes should be the main focus of your face! How to make your eyes pop you may ask?! Wear the right colors of eye shadow! This is EASY! Depending on your eye color these shadows are really going to make your eyes POP!

Blue: BROWNS, purples, greens, BLACKS

Green: PURPLES, browns

Brown: Bronzy browns, COPPERS

Hazel: Creams, GOLDS, greens

Tip #3: Clear skin.

Having clear skin is so beneficial and important! Not just important for wearing makeup. Luckily makeup covers up most blemishes but we all want that baby bottom soft skin! Right?! How can you accomplish this? MONTHLY facials, (our outstanding Aestheticians can tell you what facial is best for your skin type! Just give us a call or stop by!) using the correct skin products DAILY,(our Aestheticians will also recommend the best skin products from our salon to you that will benefit your skin the most!) drinking lots of water, eating the right foods,(see my previous blog post for foods that benefit your skin to get a great list of foods!) etc.

Tip #4: Comfortable.

You may think what does being comfortable have to do with makeup?! EVERYTHING. Being comfortable with the amount you’re wearing. If you aren’t, you won’t feel like your self and we don’t want that! Be your beautiful self! Wear what you want and don’t wear what you’re not comfortable with. Put loads on or just brighten up your face a bit! Makeup is not required it’s a choice!

Tip #5: The right shades.

My final tip for you guys is simple. Wearing the right shades for you face! Cool, warm and neutral toned shades. This depends on your skin type! You DON’T have to follow this tip! Wear what YOU want! My skin tone and eye color pop the best with warm toned shades but sometimes I feel like wearing cool toned shades! But if you really want to make features pop this is a good one!

Warm skinned:

People with warm skin tones look best in you guessed it!! Warm colors. Duh! Lol! You can reach for oranges, orange-reds, peachy pinks, bronze, browns, and golds. Try out a peach or orange blush! Lips, it’s best to go with orange reds instead of berry-toned reds to really pop!

Cool skinned:

If your skin is light or dark, you will benefit with cool tones! Like wearing cool pinks, purples, reds, blues, greens, and grays. Instead of reaching for a peachy pink blush, grab a more vibrant pink. Cherry reds and fuchsia would look fabulous on your lips! Gray and deep purple eye shadows make cool eyes pop!

Neutral Skinned:

If you’re neutral skinned you’re the LUCKY ONES! You’re a chameleon! You can wear whatever colors and shades you want! Everything looks flattering on you!

REMEMBER: Wear what feels best to YOU makeup is fun! These are tips not rules!

Ultrasonic facial treatments cleanse, repair and stimulate the skin by using a machine that emits gentle sonic waves.  It uses ultrasound to loosen and remove dead skin cells and restore the natural charge to cells. The process is safe and is perfect for sensitive, sun-damaged, and acne prone skin.

 

What is an Ultrasonic Facial?

This high-tech facial uses a specialized ultrasonic/ultrasound machine that emits high-frequency waves. Ultrasonic treatments benefit a variety of skin types and can improve many common skin conditions. Your aesthetician will customize your ultrasonic facial according to your skin type and skincare needs.

 

In a treatment, the ultrasonic machine’s high-frequency waves work to:

 

  • Exfoliate dead skin cells for clear and radiant skin without the redness or irritation.
  • Loosen and remove oil, dirt and sebum from the pores and hair follicles, resulting in less blackheads and breakouts. Ultrasonic frequency zaps bacteria and decongests the pores. The result? Clear, healthy skin with noticeably tighter pores.
  • Gently stimulate skin to encourage collagen and elastin production. With a series of treatments, fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable and skin color, tone and texture becomes more even and uniform.
  • Stimulate blood flow and lymphatic drainage through the combination of ultrasound and electrical therapy. This nourishes the skin and gives it a youthful rosy glow.
  • Facilitate hydration and plump the skin, thereby filling out fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Help skincare products do their job by penetrating deeper into the skin. This is especially true for anti-aging and antioxidant serums, creams and masks. n.
  • Safe for most people: The sonic waves emitted by the ultrasound machine aren’t harmful to your health. However, if you have an autoimmune disorder, a diagnosed heart disorder or cancer, it’s best to skip the ultrasonic treatment. Anyone living with a chronic health condition or are pregnant should check with his or her physician before proceeding with any aesthetic treatment.

 

The ultrasonic facial is gentle, non-invasive suitable for most skin types, from acne to rosacea to sun-damaged skin. Once your skin is rejuvenated and healthy looking, maintain your results with monthly ultrasonic facials.

 

Hello again to my frequent readers and hello to my new ones, too. We’re going to talk about obtaining and maintaining beautiful and healthy nails. With short winters (even though it’s Vegas it gets pretty cold!) and long summers, it’s not just our skin that will be going through some changes, our nails will as well! They can tend to get a bit dry and even brittle in some cases. Also, as some of us love to get manicures (acrylics, gel, or regular polish), our nails go through the wringer a bit in between manicures. So to help combat and minimize any (further) damage, we at Elements have a wonderful treatment called IBX! Just a short summary as to what it is: a treatment that helps to condition and strengthen the nail, whether you’re in between manicures or you just want to give your nails a little TLC.  This treatment doesn’t just SIT on the nails but actually PENETRATES the nail bed.

Now, while most of us have minor nail issues, I am providing a short list to show you a few examples of what your nails might be trying to tell you.  Now don’t freak out beauties, these are just symptoms/signs to look out for so you can keep your nails healthy and strong. Of course, as you know, I am NOT doctor, and neither are some of you so I don’t want you self-diagnosing. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed, please visit your REAL doctor:

*THICK NAILS – This may indicate that the vascular system is weakening and the blood is not circulating properly. It can also be a sign of thyroid disease.

*WHITE LINES – This can show possible signs of heart disease, high fever, or arsenic poisoning.

*WIDE NAILS – If your nails are unusually square and wide, this could indicate a hormonal disorder.

*SEPARATING – Nails separating form the nail bed can be due to injury or infection, a reaction to a drug, thyroid disease, or psoriasis. While infections can occur underneath the nail bed during separation, most times the nails will re-attach themselves to the bed within a few months. If this doesn’t happen and you feel it could be much more serious, please see your doctor immediately.

*DARK BLUE BAND – An isolated dark blue band in the nail, especially in fairer-skinned people, can be a sign of skin cancer.

*CHIPPED, CRACKED, OR PEELING – Nails that chip, crack, or peel can show a general nutritional deficiency, insufficient hydrochloric acid and protein. Minerals are also needed. So take those vitamins ladies! (and gentlemen!).

So there you have it folks! While manicures are fabulous, it is very important to take care of ourselves inside as well as out.  Our nails can also serve as barometers to inform us if we’re doing just fine or if we need to take a little extra care. Also, for more information on our new IBX treatment, please visit us and one of our talented and knowledgeable nail techs will be more than happy to fill you in! Thanks for reading!
