Autumn is my favorite season. I love the cooling temperatures; just cool enough
for a sweatshirt. I love the fall colors & falling leaves. I love long walks & hearing the
crunch of the leaves beneath my feet. The world bursting with splashes of orange, red,
yellow, & brown. I can’t wait for my first autumn bonfire, sipping hot apple cider or to go
to the apple orchard & pick apples fresh from the tree, which will soon be turned into a
delicious apple pie. I can smell the sweet scent of the apples as they mix with the spicy
aroma of cinnamon.
Two wonderful ingredients for delectable autumn treats are also great for our skin.
Apples contain malic acid. Malic acid is an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid). It is great
for light exfoliation of the skin, helping to add smoothness to your complexion. With
autumn also comes less time spent in the sun, so it is a great time of the year to start
receiving some chemical peels & repairing some of the damage we did to our skin this
Cinnamon has many great qualities. It is a great antioxidant & antibacterial;
great for the treatment of acne. It can help speed the healing of acne lesions, while
fighting the bacteria that causes the acne in the first place. Cinnamon is also stimulating
& great for the treatment of cellulite. It helps with the circulation & breaking down of
built up toxins. We offer a great contouring body wrap that contains cinnamon. The
M’lis Wrap allows you to lose 4-14 inches in one wrap. It helps your body detoxify & rid
itself of toxins. Body contouring wraps are best done in conjunction with healthy eating
& exercise. But will help with losing those pesky pounds that don’t respond to diet &
exercise. They also help with tightening & smoothing the skin.
So this autumn as you sip your cider or eat your pie, remember to call & book
an appointment with one of our wonderful student estheticians at Mandalyn Academy.
They look forward to helping you design a treatment plan for your skin.
