#NoMakeup. It all Started with a Photograph!

Most women grew up being taught how to apply lipstick, eye shadow, and other cosmetics in just the right way to get the look they wanted. Judging by the recent development of the No Makeup trend, we could draw the conclusion that what many women really want is to free themselves of the whole makeup burden altogether.

The Photograph that Changed Everything
The No Makeup trend started with singer Alicia Keys, and a photo that was captured of her during a shoot for the single “In Common.” Keys may not have realized it at the moment, but she was soon catapulted into the spotlight as a catalyst, a trend-setter for millions of other women ready to embrace their natural skin. Now, the Voice Coach is vocal about her longstanding feelings about makeup, and the freedom she now feels having made the decision to bare it all. A bare face can be truly powerful, and truly beautiful, too!

You may be thinking that you would love to go makeup free, but also feel conflicted about the overall appearance of your skin. Celebrities, after all, are thought to spend days at the spa under lasers and other modalities to keep themselves looking young and vibrant.

How to Shine
Going makeup free, or becoming a makeup minimalist, is easier when you have a natural glow. The signs of sun damage and aging have historically been somewhat unacceptable on the female face. Rather than cover up with makeup, which really isn’t effective anyway, more women are turning to routine facials and gentle skin rejuvenating treatments like those offered at Aria Medi Spa.

  • Futura Face™ LED light therapy has 8 settings through which the skin can be pampered and polished. Some lights promote collagen production while other wavelengths, like blue light, fight acne. LED facials are convenient and comfortable. For optimal, ongoing stimulation of cellular regeneration, facials may be scheduled monthly.
  • Chemical peels are formulated for specific results, such as reducing inflammation or stimulating collagen. Performed on a routine basis, chemical peels bring out the best in your skin so you don’t want to hide it beneath makeup.
  • SilkPeel Diamond Dermalinfusion technology is a completely unique, non-invasive skin perfecting procedure that has instant – and cumulative – results. This treatment exfoliates the damaged top layer while simultaneously infusing condition specific and anti-aging serums deep into the skin. Dermalinfused skin is multi-enhanced – hydrated, smoothed and volumized.

Aria Medi Spa has established a comprehensive menu of services to address a wide variety of concerns, ranging from laxity to under eye bags to scars and stretch marks. Learn more about the benefits of professional skin care treatments at 703-444-2800 .
