Ageless Beauty

The foundation of the clinically proven anti-aging Epionce regimen includes a Renewal and Lytic for skin type. Depending on your age, you may experience different skin challenges from dry skin to visible fine lines and wrinkles. To achieve the best anti-aging benefit and enhance results, stick to the core of the line and include these Epionce anti-aging add-ons for your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and beyond.

20s

While you are still basking in a fountain of youth so-to-speak, make no mistake that the damage caused by not protecting your skin and the visible ramifications that go along with it occur at any age. You may not have thought about anti-aging skin care much until now, but when that first glimpse of a fine line starts to appear, you’ll start to wonder ‘how did that happen?’

Epionce Anti-Aging Add-Ons: Epionce Cleanser + Tinted Sunscreen

Why?

Clean skin sets the canvas for your skin to receive the best benefit from other Epionce products. And, don’t forget daily sunscreen application. Perfecting this habit now will do your skin a huge favor in the long-run. Try Epionce Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 to get broad-spectrum protection with sheer coverage.

30s

Your skin still has a very youthful and radiant appearance, but the damage may really start to come to the surface in the form of more visible fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the delicate eye area. Skin texture may begin to change, and over­all dryness and flakiness may be more noticeable.

Epionce Anti-Aging Add-Ons: Epionce Renewal Eye Cream + Intense Defense Serum

Why?

An eye cream will help improve the visible ap­pearance of fine lines and help reflect visible light to make imperfections such as dark circles less noticeable. Applying a multivitamin serum will boost anti-aging results by giving skin key nutrients it needs for a healthy glow. More noticeable changes may begin to show in your skin, including more pronounced fine lines (crow’s feet) and wrinkles, and an increase in age spots from over-exposure to UV light. On top of that, hormonal changes may begin having a greater impact on the skin’s ap­pearance, including dull skin that lacks a radiant glow.

40s

More noticeable changes may begin to show in your skin, including more pronounced fine lines (crow’s feet) and wrinkles, and an increase in age spots from over-exposure to UV light. On top of that, hormonal changes may begin having a greater impact on the skin’s ap­pearance, including dull skin that lacks a radiant glow.

Epionce Anti-Aging Add-Ons: Epionce Enriched Firming Mask + MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System

Why?

A weekly mask at home will boost hydration, calm redness and irritation, and improve visible firmness. Lightening dark spots with a gentle, botanical-based system will help restore a clear, even complexion gently without irritation.

50s

In addition to fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, several new skin challeng­es arise during this time, especially those associ­ated with a decrease in estrogen associated with menopause. Skin may begin to thin, and sagging may be more pronounced on the face, décolletage and body. Also, hormonal changes may increase surface shine and lead to more blemish-prone skin.

Epionce Anti-Aging Add-Ons: Epionce Intensive Nour­ishing Cream + Renewal Enriched Body Lotion

Why?

Applying a super-hy­drating cream to the face and décolletage helps increase visible firmness and hydration. The same applies to the body, apply a hydrating lotion daily will help improve texture and tone.

Moisture Surge

Desperately seeking moisture? Let Epionce help you get it right. Epionce Renewal Facial products are powerful anti-aging moisturizers that improve the overall look of the skin by reducing the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Dry/Sensitive Skin Types

Dry, flaky patches and visible redness are common characteristics of this skin type. Even if your skin looks and feels normal most of the time, shifts in climate, diet and even hormones can leave your skin dry and sensitive.

Our Epionce Pick: Renewal Facial Cream

renewal facial cream

Normal to Combination Skin Types

Your skin doesn’t cause you much trouble most of the time, but on occasion it likes to throw you for a loop. Sometimes you get oily in your t-zone by the late afternoon, or a rough dry area appears out of nowhere.

Our Epionce Pick:  Renewal Facial Lotion

Oily/Problem Skin Types

Visible shine is the norm, your makeup vanishes by 3pm, and blemishes appear more often than you’d like.  Yet, your skin may still get dry and craves proper moisture to help it stay balanced.

Our Epionce Pick:  Renewal Lite Facial Lotion

Severely Dry/Photoaged Skin

Dry skin combined with dark spots and fine lines and wrinkles are typical characteristics of skin overexposed to the damaging effects of UV light and other environmental factors.   Help improve visible firmness and regain a youthful-looking glow on your face and neck with a powerful moisturizer suitable for all skin types.

Product Spotlight: Epionce Renewal Enriched Body Lotion

With the harsh winter months ahead, it’s important to use a nourishing body lotion in your everyday regimen to keep your skin looking hydrated. The Renewal Enriched Body Lotion is made with the same key active ingredients as the Epionce flagship Renewal Facial Cream and is an advanced anti-aging moisturizer for the body. Daily use improves the visible appearance of dry, photo aged skin on the arms, legs and the body while increasing visible firmness and tone.

Key Benefits:

1. Renewal technology encourages healthier skin.

2. Hydrates to calm dry skin and improve visible firmness.

3. Improves the visible appearance of skin aging on the body

Beauty Mistakes Fixed

Your Epionce Cheat Sheet

No one is perfect when it comes to skin care, and sometimes we form bad habits that start to show on our skin. These more common mistakes can be easily remedied with a few modifications to your daily regimen.

Mistake: Using gritty exfoliants.

Solution: Epionce Lytic Tx product for skin type.

Regular over-exfoliation of the skin with harsh, gritty scrubs will do more harm than good because they cause unnecessary irritation and can tear the skin. Apply an Epionce Lytic Tx product for your skin type daily to help clean the pores of impurities without damaging the skin barrier.

Mistake: Not washing your face at night.

Solution: A simple, easy-to-use skin care regimen.

We’ve all been there: you’re tired after a long day and just want to go to sleep without bothering to wash your face. Not washing your skin before bedtime can lead to blemishes and the visible appearance of skin aging. Try Lytic Gel Cleanser to remove all makeup, dirt and oil in one quick cleanse without stripping the skin of natural oils.

Mistake: Not wearing sunscreen daily.

Solution: Epionce Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50.

If there is one miracle anti-aging cream, sunscreen is it! Help stop skin aging in its tracks by applying an anti-oxidant sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily. Epionce Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 is broad-spectrum protection, while the sheer coverage of a foundation helps your skin look natural and flawless.

Mistake: Touching your face.

Solution: Epionce Toner for skin type.

Avoid rubbing your face through the day or resting your chin or cheek on your hands. This all-too-common mistake spreads bacteria that can worsen breakouts. In addition, avoid picking at skin as this can lead to unwanted scarring and dark spots. Add an Epionce Balancing Toner or Purifying Toner, depending on your skin type, to help remove any trace dirt, oil or makeup.

Forget Me Not

You know the importance of caring for the skin on your face, but this is not the only area that needs anti-aging attention. Extend the care you give your face to these ‘forget me not’ areas with some simple adjustments to your Epionce regimen.

Throat and Neck

As you diligently care for the skin on your face, take some extra time every day to address your neck and throat area. This area can be easily forgotten, but equally subject to the visible signs of aging like the face. A few simple steps each day will help ensure this area remains youthful looking.

*Bonus anti-aging tip: sunscreen should be applied to all areas exposed to the sun, throat and neck included!

Epionce recommends: Intense Defense Serum + Renewal Facial Lotion

Décolletage and Upper Chest

Like the neck, the décolletage is often missed in a skin care regimen. It is susceptible to developing unwanted dark spots and other signs of photoaging, including sagging. Neglected skin in this area often looks dull with uneven texture and tone. Using a potent, rich hydrating cream at night will help smooth skin texture and help visibly firm the skin.

Epionce recommends: Lytic Gel Cleanser + Intensive Nourishing Cream

Arms, Elbows and Ears

The ears and back of neck receive more sun exposure than much of the body and can be magnets for skin cancers. In addition to wearing sun protective clothing and hats, applying an antioxidant rich broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to these neglected areas can help reduce damage caused by the sun. Just like any other area, don’t forget to reapply as needed.

Epionce recommends: Active Shield Lotion SPF 30+ and Ultra Shield Lotion SPF 50

Are you Applying your Renewal the Right Way?

Application of a Renewal Facial product is the most important step in your Epionce regimen. They are the foundation of the Epionce line. While Renewals are simple to use in your daily regimen, follow these steps to ensure you are getting the best benefit.

Choose a Renewal Facial product for your skin type

Every Epionce Renewal Facial product is formulated with the same effective ingredients, but some are more emollient than others. Epionce Renewal Facial products will not clog pores, but using the right product for your skin’s hydration needs will give you the best results. In addition to consulting with your Epionce skin care professional, the following is a simple guide:

renewal facial cream

Renewal Facial Cream: Extra hydration for dry to sensitive skin.

renewal facial lotion

Renewal Facial Lotion: The same benefits of the cream, but with a lighter formula for normal or combination skin.

 renewal lite facial lotionRenewal Lite Facial Lotion: The most light-weight formula for oily or problem skin.

Adjust your Renewal Facial product when necessary 

Depending on the season of the year, you may need to change up your Renewal Facial product. Renewal Facial Lotion or Renewal Lite Facial Lotion might work best for you in the summer, or Renewal Facial Cream for colder months.

Using different Renewal Facial products in the morning and evening may also prove to be beneficial. Renewal Facial Lotion is light and comfortable for the day, while a Renewal Facial Cream gives your skin needed hydration at night.

Combine with a Lytic product for best results

Ingredients in Epionce Lytic and Renewal Facial products work synergistically to help improve the visible appearance of skin imperfections. This duo makes up the core of the Epionce line to help diminish the visible appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and aging spots. Apply a Lytic product for your skin type to help clear pores and prepare skin for your Renewal Facial product.

Apply to your neck and décolletage

These areas can reveal our true age, but are often forgotten. The same anti-aging benefits found in botanical ingredients like Date Fruit Extract and Meadowfoam Extract help visibly improve the appearance of aging skin on the neck and décolletage as well. Apply one or two pearl size drops to the neck and décolletage daily.

How to get Ageless Eyes

renewal eye cream

Use an Effective Epionce Regimen

Solution: Epionce Renewal Eye Cream + Lite Lytic Tx.

The delicate eye area requires extra attention to help keep the visible signs of aging at bay. Renewal Eye Cream is formulated with Epionce Renewal technology to nourish the skin and reduce the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For clinically proven anti-aging results, use the power duo: apply Lite Lytic Tx before application of Renewal Eye Cream.

Wear Sunglasses Everyday

Solution: Wear sunglasses to help prevent crow’s feet.

Look for sunglasses with 100% UV protection on the label to help reduce damage from UV rays. Similar to sunscreen usage recommendations, even if it not a sunny day, UV rays still penetrate the cloud layer and sunglasses should be worn.

Eat a Colorful, Nutrient-Rich Diet

Solution: Vitamin-rich foods help keep eyes healthy.

Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, like carrots, spinach and oranges, helps promote healthy-looking eyes from the inside out.

Get Professional Fillers

Solution: Talk to a skin care professional about in-office options.

Enhance your topical anti-aging eye regimen with professionally administered fillers to help rejuvenate the appearance of eyes by plumping hollow under eye circles.

Optical Illusion

Did you know that Epionce Renewal Eye Cream is formulated with soft-focus technology that helps diffuse visible light to make dark circles under the eye area appear less noticeable?

Healthy Aging with an Epionce Regimen 

Beautiful, healthy skin at any age. 

September is Healthy Aging Month, bringing attention to healthy habits that can help you age gracefully. Here are some tips for how Epionce can help slow the visible appearance of skin aging and boost your healthy aging skin care regimen.

Intensive Nourishing CreamAddress the skin on your neck and décolletage

Your neck shows age as much as your skin on your face, but we often forget about this part during our daily skin care regimen. As you age, skin loses elasticity and its youthful appearance. To address aging skin on this area of the body and promote the appearance of elasticity, add Intensive Nourishing Cream to your evening routine. Hydrolyzed yeast peptides and potato peptides work to boost the visible appearance of firmer skin. This rich cream gives skin added hydration to improve the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while addressing the challenges of photoaged skin.

Epionce SPF 50 Tinted Sunscreen

Prevent future damage

Part of a healthy routine includes protecting skin from damage caused by ultraviolet rays. Exposure to sunlight on a regular basis not only leads to aging skin, but potentially skin cancers as well. A daily application of antioxidant-fortified sunscreen on the face is one of the most effective measures you can take to protect your skin. Epionce Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 is an elegant, broad-spectrum sunscreen that doubles as a tinted foundation.

Use gentle ingredients

Botanicals found in Epionce products help improve visible skin aging without harsh ingredients. Key ingredients like apple, date, flax and Meadowfoam extracts gently address a variety of skin concerns as well as leading retinoids. Using skin care products with active, yet gentle ingredients will help prevent irritation and still achieve great results.

If beautiful, healthy-looking skin as you age is your goal, contact an Epionce Professional at North Florida Aesthetics for more information. We deliver the beauty of healthy skin.

Add These Products to Your Fall Regimen

Fall is quickly approaching, making this a great time to evaluate the state of your skin. As you make to-do lists for the busy season, here are some ways to switch up your regimen.

Switch to a more emollient Renewal Facial Product

A change in seasons and shift in temperatures can lead to noticeably dry skin. To help make up for drier air and colder temperatures, try a more emollient Renewal Facial Product. If a heavier cream is too much for the day, apply Renewal Facial Lotion in the morning and Renewal Facial Cream at night. For even better hydration and to help reduce visible photodamage from the summer sun, apply Intensive Nourishing Cream as a night moisturizer.

Smooth visible imperfections

Sun and heat can leave impurities in the skin. Using a Lytic product once or twice a day can help improve the visible appearance of skin texture by removing excess buildup for more even, radiant skin.

Enriched Firming Mask is a must-have in your fall regimen to smooth imperfections. The creamy mask gives your skin much-needed hydration for the cooler weather, while calming visible redness.

Tackle unwanted dark spots

MelanoLyte Tx and MelanoLyte Pigment Perfecting Serum Night Tx work together to tackle stubborn dark spots that may have shown up after spending time in the sun. Botanical ingredients like Licorice and Tumeric Extract have been shown to help gently diminish the visible appearance of dark spots as well as leading hydroquinone regimens without causing irritation.

Continue to apply sunscreen daily

Even with less sun, it’s important to apply sunscreen every day. This step protects your skin from UV rays that can lead to skin cancer and boosts your anti-aging routine. Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 is a two-in-one sunscreen with a hint of color for flawless coverage like a light foundation or primer, making it easy to never forget to apply.

Attend to your entire body

Some of the driest skin is on the arms, legs and body. Hot water in our showers can dry our skin. Solve this with Epionce Renewal Enriched Body Lotion for daily use, or Extreme Barrier Cream for very dry patches. These Renewals are designed to address dry skin on parts of the body that don’t produce as much oil and to maintain healthy moisture.

coolsculpting certified

Benefits of CoolSculpting 

CoolSculpting is the only non-surgical FDA-cleared fat-freezing procedure that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat.

1. Non-invasive

CoolSculpting works by delivering controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The treated fat cells are crystallized, then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. It’s perfect for those wanting to reduce fat without having to undergo surgery or other invasive procedures.

2. Eliminates stubborn fat

 Sometimes no matter how much you diet and exercise there is stubborn fat that can’t seem to be shed. CoolSculpting is great for targeting exercise-resistant fat. Some of these areas include: abdomen, thigh, flank (sides), under your chin, around your bra, back and underneath the buttocks.

3. Long-lasting results

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized, they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. With diet and exercise, results can be long-lasting.

4. No downtime

There is no downtime required for CoolSculpting. Because it is a non-invasive procedure, patients can resume normal activities after treatment, without any disruption of their daily schedules.

What to Expect When Starting an Epionce Regimen

A new skincare routine can come with a variety of questions, like how to use products or when to expect results. Below are some of the results you may experience when starting an Epionce regimen.

Your skin will feel fresh–not tight

Epionce cleansers wash away makeup, dirt and oil without stripping skin of healthy oils to leave skin feeling clean and refreshed without over-drying. For a cleanser you can really feel working, try the award winning Lytic Gel Cleanser. Menthol cools and refreshes skin, while Willow Bark Extract works to deep clean pores which helps reduce blemishes and congested skin.

Your skin will appear more youthful

Renewal Facial Products combined with a Lytic for your skin type are a must-have for great anti-aging results. Optimally hydrated for each skin type, they help improve the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on face, neck and décolleté to reveal radiant skin as well as leading retinoids.

Intense Defense Serum is the Epionce anti-aging serum that leaves skin looking dewy and radiant. This multivitamin for the skin is clinically proven to be superior in visible anti-aging results against other leading anti-aging products without the irritation.

You’ll love using your skincare products

Not only will you enjoy the results you’ll achieve with your Epionce regimen, but you’ll love using the products every day! The Epionce elegant signature aroma provided by the botanical ingredients gives a luxurious experience every day.

Epionce MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System

Epionce MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System

August 29, 2017

Five Reasons MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System is Right for You

The MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System was uniquely formulated to help reduce the visible appearance of dark spots on the face, décolleté and hands. This system is the perfect way to rejuvenate the skin after harsh summer weather. Here are five reasons why the system might be a good solution for you.

1. You want a gentle alternative to traditional brightening ingredients

Botanical ingredients in MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System work synergistically to help reduce the visible appearance of dark spots. These results are clinically proven in multiple studies to provide the same or better outcome as the leading traditional hydroquinone and retinoid-based regimens. Both products in the system, MelanoLyte Tx and MelanoLyte Pigment Perfecting Serum, are kojic acid-free and hydroquinone-free so you won’t experience irritation common with these ingredients

2. You’re cycling off your regular brightening products

If it’s time to cycle off your current medically-directed dark spot regimen, the MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System is a safe and gentle way to help pick up where your other skincare product left off. The system can be substituted short-term or permanently in place of other medically-directed product options to help you maintain results and prevent rebound.

3. You need a simple regimen

Because the MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System is made up of only two products, it’s simple to incorporate into your regular Epionce regimen. For best results, apply MelanoLyte Tx after cleansing in the morning and evening. Use MelanoLyte Pigment Perfecting Serum as a night serum prior to your MelanoLyte Tx product. Always finish with a Renewal Facial product and sunscreen.

4. You need a product you can use year-round

Sensitivity to ultraviolet light or irritation from long-term use is not a risk with MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System. Because MelanoLyte Skin Brightnening System products are created with specific, clinically-proven botanical ingredients, there is no need to stop using the regimen during the summer or after a certain length of time.

5. You’re worried about dark spots after a procedure

Professional procedures like a chemical peel or laser treatments can aggravate dark spots. If you have an appointment scheduled, use both products several weeks before the procedure to prepare the skin. The MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System can be applied after the skin barrier has healed following a professional procedure.

Now that the kids are back in school, refresh your skin with a five-minute morning regimen!

woman morning

1. Quick Cleanse

There’s always time for a quick cleanse in the morning to refresh your skin and help you feel more awake. Lytic Gel Cleanser quickly gets rid of impurities to leave your skin feeling clean, cool, and ready for the day.

2. Refresh with a toner

Next, use an Epionce toner for your skin’s unique needs. If you feel dry by the end of the day, spray Balancing Toner to give skin added hydration. Try Purifying Toner to help control surface shine that can start showing later in the day. Both toners are set at the optimal pH for the skin.

3. Morning multitasker

Intense Defense Serum is the ultimate morning multitasker! The formulation of multiple vitamins needed by the skin helps dramatically reduce signs of aging while boosting hydration. This is a perfect morning product because it quickly absorbs into the skin so you can move on to the next step: a Renewal Facial product. Use both the Intense Defense Serum and a Renewal Facial Product for optimal hydration and radiant-looking skin.

4. Save time with a tinted sunscreen

Finish your five-minute routine with Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50. This two-in-one tinted sunscreen protects your skin all day long from UVA and UVB rays and provides sheer coverage to minimize the appearance of skin imperfections.

All products can be purchased here at North Florida Aesthetics!

Epionce Tip of the Week!

Travel Bag Essentials

Summer is a prime travel season. While away from home, don’t leave your skin care regimen behind! To help you pack for your next trip, we’ve included our Epionce travel essentials below.

Travel Essential #1: A cleanser for you skin type

Pack your favorite cleanser for your skin type to wash away dirt, oil, and makeup after a long day of travel. Epionce cleansers thoroughly wash the skin of impurities to leave it feeling refreshed, and looking healthy.  Lytic Gel Cleanser is a favorite of the clean-feeling and cool sensation you’ll experience when cleansing.

Travel Essential #2: Balancing Toner

Many travelers experience dry skin after a long fight or a day in the sun, which can lead to discomfort and visibly irritated skin. Take Balancing Toner to spray on your face and body for a surge of hydration. Soothing botancials and humectants in Balancing Toner help calm skin, reduce the visible appearance of irritation ease dryness.

Travel Essential #3: A Renewal Facial product for your skin type

Replace much-needed moisture with a Renewal Facial product for you skin type. A Renewal is key to radiant, hydrated and healthier-looking skin. Try using your favorite lotion or cream at night, while swapping it in the morning with the light-weight, anti-aging formula found in Intense Defense Serum.

Travel Essential #4: Enriched Firming Mask

Epionce Tip of the Week!

Four Reasons You Need to Invest in a Good Cleanser

Your cleanser plays a major role in helping you achieve the best physical results from your skin care regimen. Using a quality cleanser is important to seeing an improvement in your skin’s appearance. Below are some reasons you want to invest in your cleanser.

1. It’s the first step in any regimen.

Cleansers are the first, and perhaps the most important step in your skin care routine. It helps prepare your skin to get the most benefit from the rest of your routine by washing away makeup, dirt, and excess oil. Epionce cleansers work to help clean the skin and pores without stripping natural oils that keep the skin healthy. This helps improve the results you will experience from your Lytic and Renewal Facial products.

2. You’ll get the most out of your cleanse.

Get the best cleanse with less product by using only one to two pumps of an Epionce cleanser. This is enough to effectively remove dirt, oil, and makeup from your skin. For heavier makeup, double cleanse at night with an Epionce cleanser to refresh your skin or try using a creamy milky lotion cleanser on a cotton ball or pad to remove makeup first and follow with a cleanser for your skin type.

3. Your current cleanser is irritating your skin.

If your skin feels dry and tight after washing, this is a sign that your cleanser may be stripping skin of necessary oils that it needs. Exfoliating beads in cleansers can also tear skin and lead to long term damage. Look for a cleanser that is pH-balanced and won’t disrupt the natural protective barrier. The entire line of Epionce cleansers effectively clean the skin without causing irritation.

4. Quality ingredients really do matter.

The ingredients formulated in your cleanser are important. A good cleanser won’t clog pores and is formulated with gentle ingredients to help prevent and calm visible redness. Botanicals in Epionce cleansers, like Willow Bark Extract in the Lytic Gel Cleanser, helps to clean skin of dirt, oil, and makeup that can clog pores and lead to visible blemishes. Apple and date extracts in the Milky Lotion Cleanser and Marsh Mallow extract in Gentle Foaming Cleanser help to soothe visible redness for beautiful, healthy looking skin.

Epionce Tip of the Week!

4 Tips for Better Skin

1. Cleanse properly at night

After a long day, it’s tempting to go to bed without washing your face. Falling asleep with makeup or dirt accumulated during the day can lead to redness or blemishes, plus visible appearance of skin aging. Washing with a cleanser containing gentle ingredients that remove impurities will help save time and your skin’s appearance. Epionce cleansers effectively remove makeup, dirt, and oil with the first wash. Cleansing at night will help keep pores free of congestion that can lead to irritation and blemishes.

2. Switch to Renewal Facial product

A quality moisturizer will give your skin the right amount of hydration, while visibly improving the appearance of skin imperfections. Invest in good products for a lifetime of benefits for your skin, including better clarity and skin that feels tighter. Renewal Facial products are formulated for every skin type and hydration need, with active complexes shown to reduce the visible appearance of skin aging.

3. Add an anti-aging product to your regimen

If you want to boost your Renewal Facial product, get even better results with the serum technology found in Intense Defense Serum. The twice-daily use product visibly improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The botanical formula won’t irritate skin.

4. Apply sunscreen diligently

Preventing the visible appearance of aging can be enhanced by using a sunscreen every day under your makeup. Visible sun damage develops over time, even in seasons when sun is less prominent. Use the Epionce Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50. It’s ideal for daily use for its sheer application and antioxidant-fortified formula, as well as the coverage you’ll get from a tinted sunscreen.

Intensive Nourishing Cream

Intensive Nourishing Cream is an elegant, but powerful anti-aging product in the Epionce line to help you achieve the best results. Incorporating Intensive Nourishing Cream as your night cream will boost the outcome of your anti-aging routine in the following ways to give you beautiful, youthful-looking skin.

1. Intensive Nourishing Cream works with sleep

Sleep helps the whole body restore itself, so use it to your advantage with your nightly skin routine. The body rejuvenates as we sleep. Proteins called sirtuins that are thought to affect aging and may be linked to sleep. Apply Intensive Nourishing Cream at night for anti-aging benefits to help visibly rejuvenate skin while your body is in overnight “repair” mode due to upregulated sirtuins.

2. Maximum rejuvenation

Over time as skin is exposed to sun, you may experience unwanted dark spots, wrinkles, and dull-looking skin. Using Intensive Nourishing Cream at night allows it to work when sun exposure is limited. The moisturizer is packed with active complexes for superior visible anti-aging and rejuvenation.

Apple Extract, a key Epionce botanical, is rich in quercetin– an antioxidant that had been shown to help improve the appearance of rejuvenation in the skin. Rosa canina also helps reduce the visible appearance of dark spots, and is a source of flavonoids to boost the appearance of youthful-looking skin. A unique combination of potato and hydrolyzed yeast peptides help skin appear visibly tighter.

3. Exceptional hydration without heaviness

The extra-emollient Intensive Nourishing Cream is the most hydrating Renewal Facial product in the Epionce line and is ideal for very aged or photoaged skin but beneficial for all skin types. A little goes a long way so just a drop or two will cover the face, neck, and décolletage. Like all Epionce products, Intensive Nourishing Cream is non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores.

4. Anti-aging without irritation

Unlike retinols, Intensive Nourishing Cream does not create irritation in order to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and photoaging. Ingredients like Safflower Extract calms and soothes skin as azalaic and ursolic acid helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and enhance visible skin tightening. Meadowfoam is a natural source of hydration that also helps skin look more youthful.

Summer is fast approaching! Take care of your skin this summer with our…

Summer Epionce Routine!

Here are five tips to take extra care of your skin this summer!

1. Stick to a regimen.

It’s easy to get a little off track with a daily skincare routine in the easygoing summer months. Going to bed with makeup on or forgetting to apply a Renewal Facial product is easy to do, but if you stay consistent with a skincare routine this will help skin look visibly healthier over time. Be sure to wash the day off with an Epionce cleanser, like the award winning Lytic Gel Cleanser, and apply a Renewal daily.

2. Refresh with a toner.

Epionce Balancing Toner and Purifying Toner help clarify skin of any trace dirt or makeup that may remain after cleansing. Cucumber and Marshmallow Extract in Balancing Toner help hydrate and soothe skin. If blemishes or oil are a concern, try Purifying Toner to help reduce shine and control factors that lead to visible appearance of problem skin. Keep your toner in the fridge to cool skin on hot summer days.

3. Switch to your Renewal.

Summer is a good time to reevaluate your Renewal Facial product. Epionce products will not clog pores, but Renewals are formulated to be more or less emollient based on skin type. This means your skin may do better with a Renewal Facial Lotion or Renewal Lite Facial Lotion for summer, instead of a heavier Renewal Facial Cream. Ask one of our Aestheticians for their personal recommendation for you.

4. Hydrate with a body product.

Hydrate every day with Renewal Enriched Body Lotion for visibly healthier-looking skin. Extra Dry skin on the feet, hands and elbows will feel soft and smooth from the maximum hydration found in Extreme Barrier Cream.

5. Protect your skin from UV Damage.

More sunny days in summer means it’s crucial to apply sunscreen every morning. Epionce Daily Shield Tinted SPF 50 makes this step easy and elegant. A sheer tint helps to even out skin tone for beautiful, flawless coverage. Ultra Shield Lotion SPF 50 is a great non-tinted sunscreen option.

Epionce Lytic products help improve a variety of skin concerns, including visible signs of aging. Using a lytic product in your regimen can help reduce the visible appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and rough texture for more youthful-looking skin. Below are some ways Lytics work to improve your anti-aging regimen.

Enhance Renewal Facial Products

Renewal Facial products are the foundation of the Epionce line, but work best when used with a Lytic for your skin type. Lytics are a specialty product that work synergistically with Renewal Facial products for optimal results when paired together. By clearing pores of dirt and oil, Lytic prepares skin for maximum anti-aging benefit from the Renewal phase. In a first of its kind clinical study, Renewal Facial Cream and Lytic Tx were shown to have superior results over the leading retinoid in the visible improvement of fine lines, wrinkles and skin clarity, without irritation making it an ideal solution for sensitive skin types.

Promote youthful-looking skin

Cell turnover naturally occurs in the skin about every 28 days to produce new, healthy cells. As we age the process slows down, but Lytics help encourage this continual cycle with the help of ingredients like Willow Bark Extract and Salicylic acid. The result is visibly improved skin clarity, smoother skin texture and visibly reduced pore size- without irritation that can be experienced with retinols.

Banish crow’s feet

If Renewal Eye Cream is one of your favorites for its elegant feel and visible anti-aging benefits, give it a boost with the help of Lite Lytic Tx and Lytic Tx. These Lytic formulas are clinically proven to help improve the visible appearance of wrinkling, commonly referred to as crow’s feet, when a small amount is applied around the orbital bone. Follow with Renewal Eye Cream to help brighten the appearance of skin around the eyes.

Epionce SPF 50 Tinted Sunscreen

The NEW Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 takes your skin care regimen to the next level! If you haven’t tried the latest product from Epionce, spring is the perfect time to experience why everyone is talking about this new tinted sunscreen.

An easier way to apply sunscreen How many times have you left the house without applying sunscreen under your makeup? It’s an easy step to forget, especially during winter. But this step is crucial to helping prevent the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – as well as serious skin cancers. Use Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 in place of a foundation, or under makeup as a primer, to ensure you receive much-needed broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection all year long.

Save time in the morning The appeal of a tinted sunscreen is its two-in-one use. The expertly-formulated Epionce Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 is first a sunscreen to protect against assaults like UVA and UVB rays. A hint of color gives flawless coverage like a foundation to help even out skin tone and to give skin a natural, healthy-looking glow. Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 is the perfect final step to your morning skincare routine!

Lightweight for warm weather Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 feels lightweight on the skin, making it ideal for everyday application during warmer spring and summer days. The mousse-like consistency goes on smooth and doesn’t melt on your skin as the temperature heats up or activity level increases. Because it’s non-comedogenic, it won’t clog pores.

Promotes healthy-looking skin As with the entire Epionce line, Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 contains a botanical blend that encourages healthy-looking skin. The antioxidant-fortified sunscreen helps protect against damage caused by UV exposure, and helps reduce the visible appearance of redness in the skin. Silicones formulated in the tinted sunscreen help block UV light more effectively. Plus, it’s paraben, PABA, sulfate and cruelty-free – just like the Epionce line.

Healthful Tip of the Week

This week’s healthful tip of the week is all about the benefits of drinking cucumber infused water. We love to drink fruit and vegetable infused water for added nutritional benefits. Not to mention, it’s delicious! Here are five benefits from drinking cucumber water.

Cucumber Water

1. It’s good for you muscles. Cucumber contains silica, this helps to keep connective tissue healthy!

2. It’s good for you skin. The antioxidants help your skin stay clear.

3. You may drink more water. All of us enjoy things that taste good. Better tasting water may just encourage you to drink more water.

4. Friends and Family will love it. Add some extra wow to your dinner table by adding a pitcher of cucumber water. Most people don’t make it at home so it will be a special treat!

5. Making it easy. It takes just a few minutes to fill a pitcher (or glass) of water and slice a few cucumbers into it, let it soak overnight prior to drinking.

Product Spotlight!

We absolutely love Epionce Renewal Products!

Here are four reasons why Epionce Renewal Facial Products are a step above all other moisturizers on the market!

1. Hydration

Epionce has three different levels of moisturizers. Each one is specifically formulated for each specific skin type to provide it with balanced hydration, without damaging skin.

2. Anti-aging benefits

 Clinical studies against the leading anti-aging retinoid showed that when Renewal Facial Cream was paired with Lytic Tx, the Epionce regimen was superior in the improvement of skin clarity, fine lines, and wrinkles.

3. Skin Clarity

Renewal Facial products can help improve skin clarity, including a reduction in the visible appearance of redness, uneven skin tone, blemishes, and even some unwanted dark spots. Skin will start to look visibly smoother and skin tone will improve as you continue to use a Renewal facial product for your skin type.

4. Improvement in Skin Texture

 One of the initial improvements you’ll notice when using a Renewal Facial product is the way it feels! You will experience an improvement in tactile roughness – or how smooth it feels to the touch. In addition to soft, supple skin you’ll notice that it even feels more tight.

P.S. Don’t forget that ALL of the Epionce System is Paraben FREE! This is one of our favorite things about Epionce!

North Florida Aesthetics is now offering 24 karat gold Eye, Lip, and Face Mask!

In this luxurious treatment the 24K Mask accelerates the regeneration of cells and reduces wrinkles and blemishes, stimulates blood circulation, as well as lifts and brightens the skin! Gold slows down collagen depletion and the breakdown of elastin to prevent sagging skin. It also helps lymphatic drainage and facilitates the removal of toxins and wastes.

  It is said that Cleopatra would sleep with a mask of pure gold, the belief being that, while the body could not easily digest the metal, once eaten, it stimulated the body?s immune system to stay alert. While this could be hearsay, there is no denying that something magical happens to you after this golden experience. The Japanese add gold flakes to their sashimi, so could there be some truth to its being a health booster? Gold rubbed on the skin regenerates skin cells. The results are a natural lift and a brighter, dewy complexion.

Hello we all need this!

Epionce tip of the month!

What to look for when purchasing Sunscreen:

~Broad Spectrum to help block both UVA (cancer causing) and UVB (burning) rays

~Note the Sun protection factor: Choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher for proper protection.

~Waterproof claims: No sunscreen is waterproof and must be reapplied throughout the day.  Sunscreens can only claim  to have “water resistant” properties up to 80 minutes maximum.

~Key ingredients: Review the active ingredients.  Look for Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide for broad spectrum, UV reflective protection.

Epionce tip of the month!

What to look for when purchasing Sunscreen:

~Broad Spectrum to help block both UVA (cancer causing) and UVB (burning) rays

~Note the Sun protection factor: Choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher for proper protection.

~Waterproof claims: No sunscreen is waterproof and must be reapplied throughout the day.  Sunscreens can only claim  to have “water resistant” properties up to 80 minutes maximum.

~Key ingredients: Review the active ingredients.  Look for Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide for broad spectrum, UV reflective protection.

Now that the kids are back in school, refresh your skin with a five-minute morning regimen!

woman morning

1. Quick Cleanse

There’s always time for a quick cleanse in the morning to refresh your skin and help you feel more awake. Lytic Gel Cleanser quickly gets rid of impurities to leave your skin feeling clean, cool, and ready for the day.

2. Refresh with a toner

Next, use an Epionce toner for your skin’s unique needs. If you feel dry by the end of the day, spray Balancing Toner to give skin added hydration. Try Purifying Toner to help control surface shine that can start showing later in the day. Both toners are set at the optimal pH for the skin.

3. Morning multitasker

Intense Defense Serum is the ultimate morning multitasker! The formulation of multiple vitamins needed by the skin helps dramatically reduce signs of aging while boosting hydration. This is a perfect morning product because it quickly absorbs into the skin so you can move on to the next step: a Renewal Facial product. Use both the Intense Defense Serum and a Renewal Facial Product for optimal hydration and radiant-looking skin.

4. Save time with a tinted sunscreen

Finish your five-minute routine with Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50. This two-in-one tinted sunscreen protects your skin all day long from UVA and UVB rays and provides sheer coverage to minimize the appearance of skin imperfections.

All products can be purchased here at North Florida Aesthetics!

Epionce Tip of the Week!

Travel Bag Essentials

Summer is a prime travel season. While away from home, don’t leave your skin care regimen behind! To help you pack for your next trip, we’ve included our Epionce travel essentials below.

Travel Essential #1: A cleanser for you skin type

Pack your favorite cleanser for your skin type to wash away dirt, oil, and makeup after a long day of travel. Epionce cleansers thoroughly wash the skin of impurities to leave it feeling refreshed, and looking healthy.  Lytic Gel Cleanser is a favorite of the clean-feeling and cool sensation you’ll experience when cleansing.

Travel Essential #2: Balancing Toner

Many travelers experience dry skin after a long fight or a day in the sun, which can lead to discomfort and visibly irritated skin. Take Balancing Toner to spray on your face and body for a surge of hydration. Soothing botancials and humectants in Balancing Toner help calm skin, reduce the visible appearance of irritation ease dryness.

Travel Essential #3: A Renewal Facial product for your skin type

Replace much-needed moisture with a Renewal Facial product for you skin type. A Renewal is key to radiant, hydrated and healthier-looking skin. Try using your favorite lotion or cream at night, while swapping it in the morning with the light-weight, anti-aging formula found in Intense Defense Serum.

Travel Essential #4: Enriched Firming Mask

Take time to pamper yourself with Enriched Firming Mask. In just 10-15 minutes, the highly-emollient mask helps calm visible redness and cools skin after a day in the sun. The extra hydration helps skin appear firmer and rejuvenated.

Travel Essential #5: Sunscreen

An Epionce sunscreen is a must-have for any destination. Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 sunscreen is maximum sun protection that doubles as a lightweight foundation. The cosmetically elegant tinted sunscreen covers skin flawlessly and gives it a healthy glow.

Epionce Tip of the Week!

Four Reasons You Need to Invest in a Good Cleanser

Your cleanser plays a major role in helping you achieve the best physical results from your skin care regimen. Using a quality cleanser is important to seeing an improvement in your skin’s appearance. Below are some reasons you want to invest in your cleanser.

1. It’s the first step in any regimen.

Cleansers are the first, and perhaps the most important step in your skin care routine. It helps prepare your skin to get the most benefit from the rest of your routine by washing away makeup, dirt, and excess oil. Epionce cleansers work to help clean the skin and pores without stripping natural oils that keep the skin healthy. This helps improve the results you will experience from your Lytic and Renewal Facial products.

2. You’ll get the most out of your cleanse.

Get the best cleanse with less product by using only one to two pumps of an Epionce cleanser. This is enough to effectively remove dirt, oil, and makeup from your skin. For heavier makeup, double cleanse at night with an Epionce cleanser to refresh your skin or try using a creamy milky lotion cleanser on a cotton ball or pad to remove makeup first and follow with a cleanser for your skin type.

3. Your current cleanser is irritating your skin.

If your skin feels dry and tight after washing, this is a sign that your cleanser may be stripping skin of necessary oils that it needs. Exfoliating beads in cleansers can also tear skin and lead to long term damage. Look for a cleanser that is pH-balanced and won’t disrupt the natural protective barrier. The entire line of Epionce cleansers effectively clean the skin without causing irritation.

4. Quality ingredients really do matter.

The ingredients formulated in your cleanser are important. A good cleanser won’t clog pores and is formulated with gentle ingredients to help prevent and calm visible redness. Botanicals in Epionce cleansers, like Willow Bark Extract in the Lytic Gel Cleanser, helps to clean skin of dirt, oil, and makeup that can clog pores and lead to visible blemishes. Apple and date extracts in the Milky Lotion Cleanser and Marsh Mallow extract in Gentle Foaming Cleanser help to soothe visible redness for beautiful, healthy looking skin.

Epionce Tip of the Week!

4 Tips for Better Skin

1. Cleanse properly at night

After a long day, it’s tempting to go to bed without washing your face. Falling asleep with makeup or dirt accumulated during the day can lead to redness or blemishes, plus visible appearance of skin aging. Washing with a cleanser containing gentle ingredients that remove impurities will help save time and your skin’s appearance. Epionce cleansers effectively remove makeup, dirt, and oil with the first wash. Cleansing at night will help keep pores free of congestion that can lead to irritation and blemishes.

2. Switch to Renewal Facial product

A quality moisturizer will give your skin the right amount of hydration, while visibly improving the appearance of skin imperfections. Invest in good products for a lifetime of benefits for your skin, including better clarity and skin that feels tighter. Renewal Facial products are formulated for every skin type and hydration need, with active complexes shown to reduce the visible appearance of skin aging.

3. Add an anti-aging product to your regimen

If you want to boost your Renewal Facial product, get even better results with the serum technology found in Intense Defense Serum. The twice-daily use product visibly improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The botanical formula won’t irritate skin.

4. Apply sunscreen diligently

Preventing the visible appearance of aging can be enhanced by using a sunscreen every day under your makeup. Visible sun damage develops over time, even in seasons when sun is less prominent. Use the Epionce Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50. It’s ideal for daily use for its sheer application and antioxidant-fortified formula, as well as the coverage you’ll get from a tinted sunscreen.

Intensive Nourishing Cream

Intensive Nourishing Cream is an elegant, but powerful anti-aging product in the Epionce line to help you achieve the best results. Incorporating Intensive Nourishing Cream as your night cream will boost the outcome of your anti-aging routine in the following ways to give you beautiful, youthful-looking skin.

1. Intensive Nourishing Cream works with sleep

Sleep helps the whole body restore itself, so use it to your advantage with your nightly skin routine. The body rejuvenates as we sleep. Proteins called sirtuins that are thought to affect aging and may be linked to sleep. Apply Intensive Nourishing Cream at night for anti-aging benefits to help visibly rejuvenate skin while your body is in overnight “repair” mode due to upregulated sirtuins.

2. Maximum rejuvenation

Over time as skin is exposed to sun, you may experience unwanted dark spots, wrinkles, and dull-looking skin. Using Intensive Nourishing Cream at night allows it to work when sun exposure is limited. The moisturizer is packed with active complexes for superior visible anti-aging and rejuvenation.

Apple Extract, a key Epionce botanical, is rich in quercetin– an antioxidant that had been shown to help improve the appearance of rejuvenation in the skin. Rosa canina also helps reduce the visible appearance of dark spots, and is a source of flavonoids to boost the appearance of youthful-looking skin. A unique combination of potato and hydrolyzed yeast peptides help skin appear visibly tighter.

3. Exceptional hydration without heaviness

The extra-emollient Intensive Nourishing Cream is the most hydrating Renewal Facial product in the Epionce line and is ideal for very aged or photoaged skin but beneficial for all skin types. A little goes a long way so just a drop or two will cover the face, neck, and décolletage. Like all Epionce products, Intensive Nourishing Cream is non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores.

4. Anti-aging without irritation

Unlike retinols, Intensive Nourishing Cream does not create irritation in order to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and photoaging. Ingredients like Safflower Extract calms and soothes skin as azalaic and ursolic acid helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and enhance visible skin tightening. Meadowfoam is a natural source of hydration that also helps skin look more youthful.

Summer is fast approaching! Take care of your skin this summer with our…

Summer Epionce Routine!

Here are five tips to take extra care of your skin this summer!

1. Stick to a regimen.

It’s easy to get a little off track with a daily skincare routine in the easygoing summer months. Going to bed with makeup on or forgetting to apply a Renewal Facial product is easy to do, but if you stay consistent with a skincare routine this will help skin look visibly healthier over time. Be sure to wash the day off with an Epionce cleanser, like the award winning Lytic Gel Cleanser, and apply a Renewal daily.

2. Refresh with a toner.

Epionce Balancing Toner and Purifying Toner help clarify skin of any trace dirt or makeup that may remain after cleansing. Cucumber and Marshmallow Extract in Balancing Toner help hydrate and soothe skin. If blemishes or oil are a concern, try Purifying Toner to help reduce shine and control factors that lead to visible appearance of problem skin. Keep your toner in the fridge to cool skin on hot summer days.

3. Switch to your Renewal.

Summer is a good time to reevaluate your Renewal Facial product. Epionce products will not clog pores, but Renewals are formulated to be more or less emollient based on skin type. This means your skin may do better with a Renewal Facial Lotion or Renewal Lite Facial Lotion for summer, instead of a heavier Renewal Facial Cream. Ask one of our Aestheticians for their personal recommendation for you.

4. Hydrate with a body product.

Hydrate every day with Renewal Enriched Body Lotion for visibly healthier-looking skin. Extra Dry skin on the feet, hands and elbows will feel soft and smooth from the maximum hydration found in Extreme Barrier Cream.

5. Protect your skin from UV Damage.

More sunny days in summer means it’s crucial to apply sunscreen every morning. Epionce Daily Shield Tinted SPF 50 makes this step easy and elegant. A sheer tint helps to even out skin tone for beautiful, flawless coverage. Ultra Shield Lotion SPF 50 is a great non-tinted sunscreen option.

Epionce Lytic products help improve a variety of skin concerns, including visible signs of aging. Using a lytic product in your regimen can help reduce the visible appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and rough texture for more youthful-looking skin. Below are some ways Lytics work to improve your anti-aging regimen.

Enhance Renewal Facial Products

Renewal Facial products are the foundation of the Epionce line, but work best when used with a Lytic for your skin type. Lytics are a specialty product that work synergistically with Renewal Facial products for optimal results when paired together. By clearing pores of dirt and oil, Lytic prepares skin for maximum anti-aging benefit from the Renewal phase. In a first of its kind clinical study, Renewal Facial Cream and Lytic Tx were shown to have superior results over the leading retinoid in the visible improvement of fine lines, wrinkles and skin clarity, without irritation making it an ideal solution for sensitive skin types.

Promote youthful-looking skin

Cell turnover naturally occurs in the skin about every 28 days to produce new, healthy cells. As we age the process slows down, but Lytics help encourage this continual cycle with the help of ingredients like Willow Bark Extract and Salicylic acid. The result is visibly improved skin clarity, smoother skin texture and visibly reduced pore size- without irritation that can be experienced with retinols.

Banish crow’s feet

If Renewal Eye Cream is one of your favorites for its elegant feel and visible anti-aging benefits, give it a boost with the help of Lite Lytic Tx and Lytic Tx. These Lytic formulas are clinically proven to help improve the visible appearance of wrinkling, commonly referred to as crow’s feet, when a small amount is applied around the orbital bone. Follow with Renewal Eye Cream to help brighten the appearance of skin around the eyes.

Epionce SPF 50 Tinted Sunscreen

The NEW Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 takes your skin care regimen to the next level! If you haven’t tried the latest product from Epionce, spring is the perfect time to experience why everyone is talking about this new tinted sunscreen.

An easier way to apply sunscreen How many times have you left the house without applying sunscreen under your makeup? It’s an easy step to forget, especially during winter. But this step is crucial to helping prevent the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – as well as serious skin cancers. Use Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 in place of a foundation, or under makeup as a primer, to ensure you receive much-needed broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection all year long.

Save time in the morning The appeal of a tinted sunscreen is its two-in-one use. The expertly-formulated Epionce Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 is first a sunscreen to protect against assaults like UVA and UVB rays. A hint of color gives flawless coverage like a foundation to help even out skin tone and to give skin a natural, healthy-looking glow. Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 is the perfect final step to your morning skincare routine!

Lightweight for warm weather Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 feels lightweight on the skin, making it ideal for everyday application during warmer spring and summer days. The mousse-like consistency goes on smooth and doesn’t melt on your skin as the temperature heats up or activity level increases. Because it’s non-comedogenic, it won’t clog pores.

Promotes healthy-looking skin As with the entire Epionce line, Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 contains a botanical blend that encourages healthy-looking skin. The antioxidant-fortified sunscreen helps protect against damage caused by UV exposure, and helps reduce the visible appearance of redness in the skin. Silicones formulated in the tinted sunscreen help block UV light more effectively. Plus, it’s paraben, PABA, sulfate and cruelty-free – just like the Epionce line.

Healthful Tip of the Week

This week’s healthful tip of the week is all about the benefits of drinking cucumber infused water. We love to drink fruit and vegetable infused water for added nutritional benefits. Not to mention, it’s delicious! Here are five benefits from drinking cucumber water.

Cucumber Water

1. It’s good for you muscles. Cucumber contains silica, this helps to keep connective tissue healthy!

2. It’s good for you skin. The antioxidants help your skin stay clear.

3. You may drink more water. All of us enjoy things that taste good. Better tasting water may just encourage you to drink more water.

4. Friends and Family will love it. Add some extra wow to your dinner table by adding a pitcher of cucumber water. Most people don’t make it at home so it will be a special treat!

5. Making it easy. It takes just a few minutes to fill a pitcher (or glass) of water and slice a few cucumbers into it, let it soak overnight prior to drinking.

Product Spotlight!

We absolutely love Epionce Renewal Products!

Here are four reasons why Epionce Renewal Facial Products are a step above all other moisturizers on the market!

1. Hydration

Epionce has three different levels of moisturizers. Each one is specifically formulated for each specific skin type to provide it with balanced hydration, without damaging skin.

2. Anti-aging benefits

 Clinical studies against the leading anti-aging retinoid showed that when Renewal Facial Cream was paired with Lytic Tx, the Epionce regimen was superior in the improvement of skin clarity, fine lines, and wrinkles.

3. Skin Clarity

Renewal Facial products can help improve skin clarity, including a reduction in the visible appearance of redness, uneven skin tone, blemishes, and even some unwanted dark spots. Skin will start to look visibly smoother and skin tone will improve as you continue to use a Renewal facial product for your skin type.

4. Improvement in Skin Texture

 One of the initial improvements you’ll notice when using a Renewal Facial product is the way it feels! You will experience an improvement in tactile roughness – or how smooth it feels to the touch. In addition to soft, supple skin you’ll notice that it even feels more tight.

P.S. Don’t forget that ALL of the Epionce System is Paraben FREE! This is one of our favorite things about Epionce!

 24k

North Florida Aesthetics is now offering 24 karat gold Eye, Lip, and Face Mask!

In this luxurious treatment the 24K Mask accelerates the regeneration of cells and reduces wrinkles and blemishes, stimulates blood circulation, as well as lifts and brightens the skin! Gold slows down collagen depletion and the breakdown of elastin to prevent sagging skin. It also helps lymphatic drainage and facilitates the removal of toxins and wastes.

  It is said that Cleopatra would sleep with a mask of pure gold, the belief being that, while the body could not easily digest the metal, once eaten, it stimulated the body?s immune system to stay alert. While this could be hearsay, there is no denying that something magical happens to you after this golden experience. The Japanese add gold flakes to their sashimi, so could there be some truth to its being a health booster? Gold rubbed on the skin regenerates skin cells. The results are a natural lift and a brighter, dewy complexion.

Hello we all need this!

Microdermabrasion is great as a standalone procedure, and it may also be done as a comprehensive rejuvenation program. By unclogging the pores and removing surface layers of skin, it gives your skin the opportunity to restore its vitality. We use Microdermabrasion’s to:

  • Reduce the appearance of age spots and blackheads
  • Improve skin discoloration
  • Exfoliate the skin, resulting in a refreshed glow
  • Reduce surface scars, including acne scars
  • Give the skin a smoother surface
  • Reduce enlarged pores
  • Reduce fine lines

Epionce tip of the month!

What to look for when purchasing Sunscreen:

~Broad Spectrum to help block both UVA (cancer causing) and UVB (burning) rays

~Note the Sun protection factor: Choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher for proper protection.

~Waterproof claims: No sunscreen is waterproof and must be reapplied throughout the day.  Sunscreens can only claim  to have “water resistant” properties up to 80 minutes maximum.

~Key ingredients: Review the active ingredients.  Look for Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide for broad spectrum, UV reflective protection.
