Super Foods

I think we all strive to live a healthier life. When I find information useful about the power of foods, I like to share. Each season I will review one super food, give you features of the food and how much you should be eating. My hopes are that by reviewing only one food at a time, including it into your diet will be easy. If at any time you would like more information or where I get my information please contact me at info@salonandspapromotions.com

Small as they may be the blueberry packs more antioxidants than any other fruit or vegetable!! Some people are calling these wonders brain food or youth food. One serving of blueberries has more antioxidants than 5 servings of apples, broccoli, carrots or squash. In fact 2/3 of a cup of these nutritional giants pack more protection than 1700 IU od vitamin E which is more protection than 1200 Milligrams of Vitamin C. WOW!

The health and anti-aging benefits are so great it would be silly to not include these berries in our everyday life. Lets review some:

  • Lower risk for Cardiovascular disease
  • Likely to protect from Cancer
  • Helps keep skin looking young and reduces sagging that age so generously give us

Studies have shown that those who ate 1 cup of blueberries a day had increased levels of antioxidants in their blood which is important to prevent cardiovascular disease, diabetes, senility, caner and degenerative eye diseases. We have only begun to see the power of eating right, but so far we know eating 1 cup of blueberries a day is a step in the right direction. Who doesn't love blueberries!!!!

Q&A With Salon and Spa

It's Q&A time with Salon and Spa. We received the following question from a longtime reader,

Dear Salon and Spa:
Why does my makeup ware off by noon? I have tried everything and nothing is working. Help!
Cindy-Denver, Co

Dear Cindy:
Thank you for your question. This particular issue is one the many women struggle with. The #1 rule for makeup application is cream on cream, powder on powder. Now, what does this mean? Well, most people do not realize that makeup must have a base to grab on to. If you are using a powder shadow or blush and do not have a powder base, it will be off by noon. This is because the oils in your skin or the moisture in your foundation will soak up the powder products. So before you use your powder colors, set your face with a powder of choice.

On the Opposite end of the spectrum, if you are using cream colors, you must have a cream base to work on or they will become streaky and uneven. Always remember you Base must be the Same as your products, then you will have makeup that will last all day!

Thanks so much for your question Cindy! Good luck in all your makeup endeavors!

Features and Benefits of Facials

Traditionally regarded as a “beauty” only service, facials are quickly becoming a regular part of maintaining healthy skin.

As the largest organ of the body, the skin’s job is to protect the body from foreign objects, to release toxins and to absorb valuable oxygen and moisture. Regular professional facials along with a healthy diet will have your skin looking terrific and functioning at peak performance.

Professional facials are deep skin treatments that achieve more than any at home regimen can.

Professional facials will do the following:

deeply cleanse



minimize blemishes

reduce acne

regulate the immune system / reduce fluid buildup. – Facials aid in blood circulation which assists lymphatic drainage.

detoxify and exfoliate the skin. – The outer layer of skin is made up of dead skin cells and pollutants. Removing this layer allows the skin to absorb moisture for a healthy glow.

relieve stress/ lessen the appearance of wrinkles - The facial massage relaxes facial muscles

keeping wrinkles at bay.

There are many types of facials to suit skin needs. Consult with your skin care specialist for the best facial for you.
