Five summer skin care tips from acclaimed New York Day Spa

Summer skin care tips.

With summer time right around the corner, Dyanna Spa, the acclaimed New York day spa, recommends five top summer skin care tips so you can look your best. It’s important to learn about how to best care for your skin now – not after the sun does its damage.

Five top tips for skin care and beauty

We all know that too much sun can cause many skin problems – from drying, sunburns, liver spots and premature aging to skin cancer. If you will follow these simple skin care tips, you won’t have to worry about the negative effects of the sun. In addition, you will learn how to make your summer appearance even more beautiful.

  1. Use sunscreen, but not just any sunscreen. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has important new guidelines about what is safe and unsafe in sunscreen products. Do not use a sunscreen that has retinyl palmitate, PABA, oxybenzone, helioplex, or dioxybenzone. It is safe to use any sunscreen that has zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as its ingredients, with a SPF of 15 or higher. SPF of 15 blocks 93% of damaging UVB rays and SPF 50 blocks 98 percent. Reapply often.
  1. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! The sun’s drying effect on skin is notorious. Use a good alcohol-free moisturizer on your face and body several times a day. Dyanna Spa has a roster of facials to help you maintain or regain the moisture in your facial skin. Our Sheep Placenta Facial is fantastic for diminishing sun damage, wrinkles, and fine lines. If you have sensitive skin, our Hydra 4 for Sensitive Skin Facial byRepechage will help your skin retain moisture and build resistance to environmental factors.
  1. In order for healthy new skin cells to develop maximally, you must get rid of the dead skin cells through exfoliation. Our day spa has exfoliation treatments from head to foot. Starting at the head, try our Peeling Facial. This deep exfoliation method uses vegetable and fruit enzymes that remove all dead skin cells, giving you a more youthful appearance immediately. For the feet, our Jelly Pedicure is a great foot care treatment as it hydrates and exfoliates your feet to the max.
  1. Wearing bathing suits, tank tops, and shorts means hair in unwanted places needs removal more often. If you are shaving, you are prey to nicks, cuts, bumps, redness, and irritation. Instead of using a razor, try wax treatments. Waxing will eliminate all of the skin problems associated with shaving. Check out all of the incredible hair removal treatments we offer including treatments for the face, back, arms, chest, legs, and toes. You may also be interested in our bikini wax services, as well as our renowned Brazilian Bikini Wax process.
  1. Talking about bathing suits and shorts may make you think about the dimply image of skin blighted by cellulite.  Our beauty spa’s Anti-Cellulite treatment will have your body looking slimmer and smoother with just a few treatments. You’ll get a massage that improves circulation and ultimately eliminates fluids between the fat cells. A wrap in which your body will sweat out additional excess fluids between fat tissues follows the massage.

Just follow these skin care tips for healthy and attractive skin, and you’ll love the way you look…and all you men out there…these tips are not just for women! Our male clientele love our Manhattan spa and you will too.

Contact us now to schedule an appointment. When you arrive, you will consult with one of our professional estheticians who will advise you on the very best treatments for your particular skin and body type.

Dyanna Spa in New York City has great tips for reducing neck and under eye wrinkles and unflattering dark circles

Dyanna Spa in New York City has some great tips for reducing wrinkles and unflattering dark circles under your eyes. The Manhattan day spa also suggest some neck and eye treatments that will help you look your very best.

No one wants to look older than they are, and just about everyone wants to look as young as they can. If you have fine lines and wrinkles on your neck and around your eyes, and darks circles and bags under your eyes, you are not going to feel as confident as you should about your looks.

Some of the unwanted signs of aging appear due to genetics; others are due to stress, the environment, the normal aging process, a poor diet, sleep deprivation, or health problems. Although there is no magic wand that removes the dreaded “turkey neck”, fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and bags under your eyes, there are some things you can do to reduce the appearance of aging without having to resort to expensive and complicated cosmetic surgery.

Anti-Aging Tips for the Eyes

If you want to get rid of those uncomplimentary dark circles and bags under your eyes, or those annoying fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, lovingly known as “crows’ feet”, then you are going to have to make some lifestyle changes. Any esthetician worth his or her salt will tell you this. For you to look your youngest and your best there are some common sense tips that will help you accomplish this.

  • Don’t give it up to the sun! Never, never go outside without sunscreen on your face, neck, hands, and any other body part that is not covered up, and if it doesn’t destroy your outfit, wear a hat.
  • Those unwelcome crows feet around the eyes evolves from years of laughing, smiling, and squinting. To prevent further environmental damage to your eyes, and to prevent squinting, be sure to wear 100 percent UV protective sunglasses when you go outdoors. Besides, everyone knows sunglasses make you look more glamorous.
  • Stay away from overly salty foods and alcohol. Because the skin around the eyes and the eyelids is very thin, fluid retention there is noticeable, making your eyes look puffy and making you look tired.
  • As we age, our eyelids thin, and blood vessels are visible through the skin. This imparts a bluish cast to the eye area. Avoid using dark eye shadow, as it will cast an even darker look to your eyelids. Using lighter shades will brighten up your eyes and make you look younger.
  • Unfortunately, a lot of the aging that occurs to the eyes is genetic; however, if you use a creamy concealer that is a shade lighter than your skin tone, you can disguise the dark circles and bags under your eyes.

Anti-Aging Tips for the Neck

Diminished levels of collagen and elasticity are a natural part of the aging skin process. Because neck skin is thinner, less elastic, and has fewer pores than facial skin, it is difficult to prevent sagging neck, fine lines, and wrinkles from making their appearance. This is all the more reason to have a special skin care plan for your neck.

  • As with the eyes, always apply sunscreen before you go outdoors to avoid sun damage to the neck.
  • If you sleep on your side, try changing your habit to sleeping on your back. This will help creases in your neck from developing and then sagging.
  • The body produces protein for cell repair while you sleep, including cell damage created by sun exposure and pollution. Getting enough sleep can also produce more human growth hormone (HGH), which is essential for skin elasticity. If you don’t want sagging neck skin and wrinkles, get at least 8 hours of sleep.
  • Make sure you include your neck in your moisturizing regimen. Many people don’t realize that your neck needs as much beauty attention as your face.
  • Eat sensibly. A low saturated fat diet, with fresh fruit and veggies, adds a great deal to your skin care regimen. It will keep you looking younger, longer.

Anti-Aging Eye Treatments

Dyanna Spa in N.Y.C. has two excellent restorative eye treatments that can help reduce those pesky aging signs.

Collagen Eye Treatment: For only $15.00, our Collagen Eye Treatment will help reduce those fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes. Our esthetician will apply a collagen mask under and around your eyes. The mask nourishes and hydrates the skin, while treating the area with collagen for more skin elasticity. After this eye treatment, the skin around your eyes will be tighter and your eyes will look less puffy. You will leave looking younger than when you walked into our beauty salon.

Opti Firm Eye Contour Treatment by Repechage: The clinically proven Repechage eye treatment will reduce the signs of sleep deprivation, aging, and sun damage. In only fifteen-minutes, you will see for yourself how wonderfully this treatment works. Repechage’s formula includes the natural extracts of Ginkgo Biloba, Gutu Kola, firming Aosa Seaweed, special enzymes, and more, which work to reduce wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles. The low cost of $20.00 is hard to beat.

Anti-Aging Neck Treatments

Remember not to forget skin care for your neck if you want to reduce the signs of aging. We guarantee you’ll be pleased with your appearance after our neck treatment.

Neck Firming Treatment: Our Neck Firming treatment targets the area of your neck from below the chin line to the shoulders and is great for loose or sagging skin. Costing only $15.00, our special “Neck Lift Collagen Crystal Mask” adds elasticity and firmness to your neck, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and helping to restore the youthful contour of your face.

Why spend thousands of dollars for cosmetic surgery when you can get a lift with Dyanna Spa’s special neck and eye treatments for only a few dollars? The treatments are effective and the results, unlike plastic surgery, are absolutely painless.

Our eye and neck treatments are a great addition to our rejuvenating facials, so be sure to include them when you schedule an appointment.

The next time you look into the mirror and want to change what you see, give us a call, or visit our website. A more youthful you is just minutes away.

Our Regular Manicure includes nail filing and cutting, after which we soak your hands in warm water to loosen the skin around the nails. The cuticles are then cut and pushed back. Prior to applying nail polish, we massage and moisturize your hands. We apply a base coat before polishing, and then a top coat to seal in the color.

Dyanna Spa’s Regular Pedicure involves a series of steps that refresh, purify, and hydrate the feet. Prior to cutting and filing the nails, our pedicurist soaks your feet in warm water with moisturizing soap, cleaning the cuticles and removing the dead skin from the soles of your feet.

Why Men in Manhattan, NY Choose Body Waxing for Hair Removal

Male body waxing in Manhattan NYC.Men Hair Removal New York

Why do more and more men in Manhattan, New York choose body waxing for hair removal? In the past, men who got body waxed were either gay, models, or athletes (swimmers, muscle builders, etc.) Now, straight and mainstream men are flocking to salons to remove hair from their back, legs, arms, chest, bikini area, buttocks, eyebrows, stomach, and other areas. Many come to our spa for our specialty, Brazilian waxing.

What are the reasons men choose body waxing?

Here are some of reasons why men are turning to body waxing for hair removal:

  • Shaving never quite gets close enough to the skin because it cuts the hair at the hair shaft. This results in stubbles that become visible the same day or the next. In addition, shaving strengthens the hair follicle, making it even harder to get a close shave.
  • Many men simply like a hairless look as part of their self-image, and waxing is the simplest and most effective form of hair removal.
  • Once a waxing regimen is begun, hair grows back finer and more slowly – the exact opposite effect from shaving.
  • There is a much lower incidence of ingrown hairs from waxing.
  • Waxing is a long lasting method of hair removal, as it removes hair from the root. A waxing treatment lasts from two to eight weeks.
  • Waxing makes the skin feel soft and smooth.
  • Many spouses and significant others find their mates’ hairless look extremely sexy and appealing.

What does the waxing treatment entail?

At our Manhattan, NY day spa, we use one of two methods: one method requires paper strips, and the other does not.

For most waxing treatments, we use Azulene wax applied with a wood spatula to the area where the hair is to be removed. Our esthetician then places the paper strips over the waxed areas and quickly and expertly pulls the strip off.

To ensure your health, we strictly adhere to a “no double dipping” policy.  We never dip the wax application spatula into the wax more than once. Our NYC beauty salon and day spa always operates with your health and safety in mind.

There are some skin types and some areas of the body that are more sensitive than others are. In these instances, Dyanna Spa uses Cirepil Blue Hard Wax. When hardened, our esthetician simply peels off the wax.

Although neither hair removal process is pain-free, the more often you wax, the more painless it becomes as the hair becomes finer and sparser with each application.

Thousands of men in New York love their hairless look. If you’ve never experienced hair-free, smooth skin on your own body, schedule an appointment now and give it a try. We think you’ll like it.

To make an appointment, or to ask any questions, give us a call at (212) 995-2355.

4 Ways To Ensure The Flakes of 2010 Are Made of Snow, NOT Skin!

Winter is almost over and spring is on its way but are you ready to shed your layers or will your skin be dried, cracked, and flaky? The winter chill does a lot of damage to our skin and since it’s our largest organ, it really is important that we take care of it to guarantee that when the spring comes our skin is moisturized, soft, and glowing. There are several easy steps to help your skin retain its health during the cold winter months.  The Doctor’s Senior Exercise suggests that after showers do not completely dry your skin. Leave yourself a little damp and apply a small amount of baby oil to each part of your body and pat (not rub) yourself dry. While this is a great at home tip to fight dry skin, chances are it’s not enough.

As hard as you try, dry skin will accumulate and you will often get an ashy or dull look to your skin. I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say no one wants to look ashy or dull so I will give you a few great tips to ease the effects of winter on your body and on your mind.

  1. Get regular manicures and pedicures! Regular manicures and pedicures help maintain skins health all year long. Manicures keep your skin soft, your nails trim, and your hands professional. But I know pedicures may seem a little silly in the middle of the winter since no one will see your beautifully painted toes but during the winter months your feet and legs really take a beating. Besides, isn’t it embarrassing enough when you dry, cracked and callused feet rub against your man or woman under the sheets? Talk about killing the mood! We suggest the Jelly Pedi, which is designed to exfoliate as well as hydrate dry skin. It really is the ultimate relief from stress and your feet’s aching muscles.
  2. Facials. I don’t know how to stress the importance of facials to keep your skin young, fresh and rejuvenated. Regardless of how much moisturizer you put on your face during the winter it isn’t going to match the effect that one facial can give you. Facials give your skin the glow and luster the chill strips away. The exfoliation can help rid the buildup of cracked skin around your nose and mouth (usually leftover from a cold or a mean case of the sniffles) and give another layer of skin the chance to shine! Our recommendation for the winter months is the Peeling Facialwhich exfoliates using enzymes from fruits and veggies to free your face of tired and dull surface skin cells!
  3. Body Treatments. I know it’s easy to treat your exposed parts to a higher pedigree than the rest but the other 90% is taking a stand! Try the Four Layer Treatment to re-hydrate, re-mineralize and re-balance your skin or try the Hydra Dew Express Lift with Dill Vitamin Vegetable Mask. The Hydra Dew Express Lift provides immediate in-depth moisturizing and reduces irritation that the winter skin often brings.
  4. Massages. Like we’ve mentioned before the rapid drops in temperature from day to day, leave your muscles feeling fatigued, sore and stiff. This can easily be fixed with a Hot Stone Massage. During your massage you can let go of your worries, forget about your next deadline and how you maybe strayed from your New Year’s Resolution. Let the warmth of the stones drown out the frigid weather and enjoy this hour of peace and tranquility as our professionals drain your body of stress and muscle tension.
