Science Meets Skin - Top 10 Health Benefits of Facials!

Posted on February 07, 2017 by Clare Lee | 0 comments


We've heard it many times before. Beauty starts from the inside out. Now more than ever that is true and people are taking notice. However the opposite is also true, taking care of your skin can have many health benefits far beyond what you see on the outside. The new focus on beauty, healthy skin, hair and nails combines a regular skincare regiment along with good diet, exercise and healthy living. The result is clear glowing skin!

A well thought out and customized skincare program for your specific skin type can make all the difference. A one-on-one consultation with a licensed esthetician and skincare specialist is highly recommended. During a consultation your skin type will be analyzed and a regular facial program will be recommended. Couple this with quality skincare products for at home care, proper diet and exercise and you are on your way to your best skin ever. 

Biologique Recherche Skincare is one of the leading skincare products lines available today. Heavily based on the science of skin with a holistic approach their products treat the skin as an organ directly interconnected to all other vital body functions. This philosophy treats your skin from the inside out and the outside in. The spirit of the Biologique Recherche Skincare lines boasts high concentrations of botanical, marine and botanical extracts, no artificial fragrances and cold made formulations to preserve the quality and integrity of each product.

One of the key factors in proper skincare is regular exfoliation to remove impurities and dead skins cells allowing the skin to restore and regenerate the epidermis's natural properties. The cornerstone of the Biologique Recherche skincare program is the Lotion P50 all-in-one toner and exfoliating treatment. This cult favorite of beauty editors around the world will transform your skin in 2 weeks. Like a facial in a bottle.

Your Winter Skincare Toolkit from Biologique Recherche Skincare

Posted on January 04, 2017 by Clare Lee | 0 comments

Biologique Recherche is one of those product lines you want to have in your skincare toolkit, especially when winter hits. Here at Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa in NYC, we are all-too-familiar with the cold winter weather that dries up skin and makes looking and feeling healthy and beautiful a challenge. The winter weather puts skin through a bootcamp of sorts, pushing it to its limits to see just how far it can go without breaking. It makes skin dry, cold, flaky, weak, damaged, and achey. The good news is Biologique Recherche contains products to help you combat these nasty winter symptoms, including the always-trusted Lotion P50. Follow our guide to see which products can help you through these chilly winter months, leaving your skin fresh and revitalized like the first day of summer! 

Winter Skincare Toolkit - PDF

This guide certainly helps make winter seem a little brighter! Now, let’s learn a bit more about the featured products in our Winter Skincare Toolkit.

Skincare Products To Help Fight Winter Side Effects

Lotion P50 PIGM 400

Lotion P50 from Biologique Recherche is often referred to as being “like a facial in a bottle.” It’s impeccable, and the results are especially noticeable during the winter. Sometimes during the winter, skin pigmentation becomes more apparent. The Lotion P50 with PIGM 400 helps reduce the pigmentation coloring, eliminating facial dark spots while also exfoliating and toning. It’s one of the best P50 products for winter. When you order Lotion P50 PIGM 400 from Paul Labrecque, you get free shipping!


Creme Dermo-RL

Are you a fan of more natural moisturizers? Then you’ll enjoy the Creme Dermo-RL as it includes raspberry seed oil and shea butter. This creme permeates the top epidermis level, soaking in to hydrate and restore the intra-epidermal lipid levels. Do you desire strong skin during these cold months? Then, we recommend you take advantage of the free shipping for Creme Dermo-RL from Paul Labrecque.


Serum T.E.W.L.

As skin gets dehydrated, it tightens. Tight skin is unbearably uncomfortable. Serum T.E.W.L. from Biologique Recherche slowly introduces healthy lipid proteins into the dehydrated skin, relieving the tight sensation and repairing any damage. You will feel immediately revitalized when you order and use Biologique Recherche Serum T.E.W.L. from Paul Labrecque; we’ll gift the shipping for free.


Protection U.V.

Sun protection is an essential element to any daily skincare routine, no matter the time of year. If the sun comes up, you should put on a skin protectant. Biologique Recherche Protection UV SPF 25 is a light moisturizer that protects the skin against UVA, UVB, and infrared rays. Proper skin protection helps prevent skin pigmentation, burn, and cancer. With Paul Labrecque, you can order Protection U.V. with SPF 25 and get free shipping on an item that will surely make your skin shine.


Le Grand Serum

Plump. Toned. Rich. These are three words that can be used to describe your face after you introduce it to Le Grand Serum. It is a finishing toning serum that seems to turn back the dial on the clock, making faces look radiant, youthful, and bright. It contains 27 active ingredients that help plump, brighten, and tone skin for a bright look. From amino acids to silk extract and St. John’s Wort, you can count on these many ingredients to do your face a much-needed favor during these cold winter months. Get free shipping on Le Grand Serum from Paul Labrecque to enjoy a renewed youthfulness today.


Lipogen AC

Have you looked in the mirror recently and compared your skin consistency to that of an orange peel? Cellulite can be such a bummer. The Lipogen AC is an oil that increases blood flow in the face, leaving the skin toned, firm, and smooth because the circulation activates drainage. There’s no better time to start saying goodbye to cellulite than now! Shop for Biologique Recherche Lipogen AC from Paul Labrecque.


Body Massage Glove

Who doesn’t love a massage? I can’t think of anyone. Even if a professional massage isn’t your go-to for relaxation, we think you’ll like this body massage glove from Biologique Recherche. It thoroughly exfoliates skin, leaving it smooth and healthy. Get rid of that crackly dead winter skin when you use the Exfoliating Body Massage Glove to stimulate lymphatic drainage and smooth skin.


Emulsion Renovatrice Mains

Do you ever wonder why you have such dry hands but the rest of your body feels all right? The hand has thinner skin and less oil glands, leaving it more susceptible to weather damage. Take care to go above and beyond for your hands, which you use so frequently, this winter by protecting them with Emulsion Renovatrice Mains. This moisturizer is created for hands alone. It has added nutrients for nail and cuticle health. See for yourself how smooth and hydrated your hands can feel with Biologique Recherche Emulsion Renovatrice Mains from Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa.


Shampooing Traitant Dermo-Apaisant

The scalp isn’t prevented from experiencing the harsh weather elements, even if there’s a full head of hair atop it! When the scalp suffers from winter weather, it creates dandruff or other scalp shedding. Say goodbye to those nasty white flakes (there are enough snow flakes falling - we don’t need yours, too!), and use Shampooing Traitant Dermo-Apaisant from Paul Labrecque to soothe and rebalance the scalp skin. Not only will it improve scalp health, it’ll add nutrients to the hair root that will make it grow strong and shiny. Enjoy the winter with these skincare toolkit items! Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa is always here for you.

Paul Labrecque In The News: Curly Hair Tips

Posted on January 03, 2017 by Clare Lee | 0 comments

Curly haired beauties know the struggles of managing a mane that luscious. What they may forget, though, as they spend dozens of minutes every day styling their curly locks is that many straight-haired sisters are extremely jealous of the volume, bounce, and natural look that comes with curly hair. So next time you swear to yourself that you are going to do something drastic to put an end to the curly madness, consider some of these Curly Hair Tips from Livingly.com. Here at Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa, we like to focus on one of our favorite tips: condition often. Before we dive extensively into that care tip, we’ll check out some other great mentions for our curly haired women.

Top Care Tips For Curly Hair

Use a silk pillowcase

The soft material of a silk pillowcase is much more forgiving for your hair than a traditional cotton one. Plus, it feels great on your skin.

Brush your hair carefully

When a curl is overstretched, it can break and frizz. Think about brushing or combing softly and while there is wet conditioner in your hair.


Use scrunchies

Sayonara, elastic hair bands. Long hair can be pulled by the elastic, so switch to a cloth-covered scrunchie to ease the tension and keep your hair out of your face and off your neck.


Celebrate your curls

Lucky for you, textured hair is the hot trend right now. Keep your eyes on your natural prize and love your curly locks for what they are. Think about all the money you can save because you don’t have to pay for a perm!


Condition often

“Keep in mind that curly hair requires more conditioning and shampooing,” says Paul Labrecque in the Livingly.com article, “when you’re in the shower, wet your hair daily to help with restyling and conditioning.”

Paul Labrecque is passionate about curly hair, which is why he has created an entire top-quality product line for curly hair. To stick with the conditioning tip, we recommend adding Paul Labrecque Curly Condition Milky Cream Conditioner to your hair care routine. Start with a small, 8 oz. bottle, or go big with the 32 oz product.

The Milky Cream Conditioner is a curl defining conditioner. It helps to hydrate and nourish the dry, thirsty curls. This formula includes macadamia nut oil and silk proteins and botanical extracts that protect the integrity of each strand of hair.

Top benefits of Milky Cream Conditioner:



  • Moisturizing
  • Improved elasticity
  • Increased shine
  • Healthy
  • Frizz-free
  • Bounce

Since Paul Labrecque’s Curly Condition Milky Cream Conditioner is sulfate free and paraben free, women can confidently use conditioner every day without harmful side effects. Plus, this product is proudly made in the USA and is not tested on animals. Let’s be honest; there are few animals with the right type of curly hair we need to make sure this product works - oh, and it’s totally inhumane to test products on animals. We would never do that!

Give your curls the love they deserve with these helpful tips from Paul Labrecque and Livingly.com.

Buy Milky Cream Conditioner at Paul Labrecque, starting at $34.

What Is Your Skin Type? Customize Your Skin Care Regiment.

Posted on December 14, 2016 by Clare Lee | 0 comments

With the incredible advancements in modern science and technology, people are able to finely create facial creams, toners, lotions, and other products to specifically target and help problem areas or unique aspects of different skin types. Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 is one such product that isn’t made for a one-type-fits-all, which is a gratifying benefit of using this product line - and one that makes it a favorite of the Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa. Common skin types are dry, oily, sensitive, normal, or a combination. Many people have somewhat of a combination, but you can use these common characteristics to narrow down what type of skin you get to call your own.

Common Types of Skin

Not only is it a good thing to keep in the back of your mind, but knowing your skin type can help you have a better skin care experience. Since people are able to tailor products for different types, you can use this information to your health and wellness advantage.

Dry

A person’s skin may be dry because the pores are nearly invisible. Pores are what help our skin breathe and stay healthy. Other signs of dry skin include a rough and tough exterior, redness, stiff and less elastic, and visible lines. Moreover, dry skin easily cracks and peels. It is most likely itchy a lot of the time, and it can easily become irritated or inflamed. Dry skin is common on hands, arms, and legs, but it is also frequent on the face.

Oily

In contrast to dry skin, oily skin is commonly caused because of enlarged pores. The skin exerts so much oil that it feels extremely moist and can look shiny. Levels of oil in the skin can change depending on the time of year and where you live. Oily skin, while commonly shiny, can also have a dull or thick complexion. Frequent blackheads, blemishes, and pimples are also signs of oily skin. Oily skin isn’t usually a lasting skin type; oily skin can arise because of stress, puberty, heat, or other hormonal imbalances.

Sensitive

Sometimes sensitive skin looks like dry skin because of the redness or dryness, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it is dry. Sensitive skin is typically only sensitive to certain products or treatments, and many companies these days make products that aren’t as harsh. If your skin itches, burns, turns red, or gets dry after using a product or doing a certain treatment, you likely have sensitive skin. Pay attention to what may trigger these reactions to try and avoid the discomfort in the future.

Normal

How boring it is to have normal skin! Only joking. In general, normal skin is our foundation for determining the other types. Normal pores are barely visible and there are few blemishes. Normal skin seems to glow all day every day and doesn’t need too much additional product or moisturizer.

Combination

Do you feel like you don’t fit into one of these groups exactly but rather take bits and pieces from more than one? You’re not alone. This is known as a combination skin type, and it is most likely a combination between dry or normal and oily in some areas. The T-zone is a common oily area. The T-zone is the forehead, nose, and chin. If you frequently have blemishes pop up on your chin, nose, or forehead, but nowhere else on your face, you most likely have a combination skin type.

Shop for a variety of P50 skin care products that match your skin type at Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa. It is our specialty to make sure you receive the best products for your goals. Consult with one of our experts if you need more information.

Biologique Recherche Lotion P 50 PIGM 400 - New Formula !

Posted on November 18, 2016 by Clare Lee | 0 comments


It is finally here. Biologique Recherche is launching a new generation of Lotion P50. The new Lotion P50 PIGM 400 formula has highly active exfoliating properties and reinforced reconditioning that gently works with the natural exfoliation process to create an ideal environment on the surface of the epidermis. These properties help skin develop in a healthy and balanced way. Because of its exfoliating properties and low pH, Lotion P 50 is ideal for reconditioning the epidermis. Lotion P50 PIGM 400 thereby couples the benefits of Lotion P 50 while acting on pigmentation marks and lightening the skin. The result is skin is brightened with a more even skin tone.

Each day, the skin is subject to many external attacks like the sun, pollution, stress, etc. The complexion becomes dull and irregular presenting pigmentation marks and cutaneous imperfections. The face can look more tired and older than it really is.

Controlling the pigmentation process, stimulating exfoliation and cellular renewal helps fight against these manifestations. Exfoliation is a natural phenomenon during which the epidermis rids itself of its dead cells; however, with age, the natural skin renewal process slows down. The natural balance of the skin is altered; dead cells tend to build up in the outer layers of the epidermis and skin renewal takes longer. The result is the skin thickens, the complexion is duller and uneven.

It should be noted that, during youth, the skin renewal cycle lasts 20 to 28 days; with age, it tends to slow down and takes more than 30 days. Boosting exfoliation is a technique commonly practiced in dermatology and cosmetics and involves removing the outer layers of the epidermis. This method is often used in cases of pigmentary disorders: ephelides, lentigines, melasma, postinflammatory pigmentation, liver spots or in the case of surface unevenness: light roughness, actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis. Exfoliation has an action uniquely on the epidermis. The aim is to promote skin re-surfacing by removing dead cells and stimulating cellular renewal. The appearance of pigmentation marks under the influence of many factors can be due to hyper-secretion and poor melanin distribution, in addition to an accumulation of lipofuscin in the upper layers of the epidermis Pigmentation disorders, referred to as hyper-pigmentation, or more commonly known as pigmentation marks, are caused by excess melanin in the skin. Hyper-pigmentation can be caused by a number of factors

Sun exposure:
The natural phenomenon of hyperpigmentation is mainly caused by sun exposure (63% of brown spots are due to the sun).

The aging process:
Intrinsic cutaneous aging is combined with atony, skin dryness and pigmentary disorders. Melanin density increases and becomes irregular; this is why pigmentation marks appear. The main pigmentary disorder is liver spots, also called “aging spots”, which appear towards age fifty.

Genetic predispositions:
Some people are genetically predisposed to pigmentation marks, such as certain ethnic groups whose skin is more yellow, more olive or darker

Hormonal imbalances:
Some hormonal variations can cause a disruption in melanin synthesis. Therefore, hyperpigmented areas can appear during pregnancy, menopause or with endocrine diseases.

Reactions after taking medication:
In some people, certain medicines or antibiotics (such as tetracycline) can cause the appearance of pigmentation marks. This can also occur after chemotherapy or radiation therapy treatments. Generally, spots resulting from these treatments disappear within six months.

Cell hypertoxicity:
For example, topical application of a synthetic perfume followed by sun exposure makes cells hypertoxic and can cause spots to appear. The same effect occurs after using certain essential oil.

The new Biologique Recehrche Lotion P50 PIGM 400 can help address many of these issues. Paul Labrecque is an authorized Biologique Recherche Skincare Spa with more than 20 plus years of experience. Call 212-988-7816, email appointments@paullabrecque.com or schedule an appointment for your complimentary one-on -one skincare consultation.
