With the holiday season looming, so are high school and college reunions. Whether it’s your 5th or 25th, you want to look and feel your best! Read on for simple ways to prep for your reunion night.
DRESS FOR YOUR BODY TYPE
Don’t let shopping for your high school or college reunion be stressful. Know your body type and what clothing and accessories accentuate your body. Confused on if you should wear solids or prints, boxy or fitted, high neck or V-neck? Many clothing stores have personal stylists that can help guide you on what outfit will make you look fabulously pulled together.
ENHANCE YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY
The art of applying makeup is so that it looks like you’re not wearing any. Touch up any signs of aging or last-minute blemishes with liquid concealer and foundation. Apply with a damp sponge for even, smooth coverage. Let your natural beauty shine through!
Warm tones add light and warmth to your face. Incorporate rich browns, cinnamon, and copper eyeshadows to your makeup. Cooler shades and gray undertones will wash you out and make you look tired.
MATTE IS A MUST
As tempting as it is to add shimmer and sparkles to your makeup for this special occasion, don’t do it! Shimmery makeup tends to highlight the flaws of our skin. Stick with a matte eyeshadow to conceal fine lines and smooth out your eyelid.
AMP UP YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE
Don’t be fickle with your skin care routine! Find what products work for you and transform your skin for your reunion and beyond. Whether your skin is oily or dry, fair or dark, sensitive or resistant, there’s a skin treatment plan that will bring out the very best in your skin. Drs. Cohen and Swartz’ Swan Skin Care is excellent for men and women, working deep down below the skin’s surface to stimulate skin repair and renewal. This customized line rejuvenates, repairs, and protects your skin. Get ready to glow!
This cleanser is gentle on the skin without drying. It effectively removes makeup, excess oils, dead cells, and other impurities, leaving the skin feeling clean & fresh. Our patients tell us it is the best cleanser they have ever used.
SWAN VITAMIN C 10% SERUM
This is the best Vitamin C Serum we have ever seen. Because it’s a powerful antioxidant, this serum protects your skin from damage from the sun and aging. It also has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, so it’s a wonderful way to calm irritated, dry or flaky skin.
This alcohol-free toner smoothes the skin with Aloe Vera and botanical extracts. It restores the natural pH of the skin, removes impurities and smoothes rough skin.
SWAN LIGHTENING PADS
These convenient, medicated pads are very effective in removing freckles, age spots, melasma, and other abnormal skin hyperpigmentation. The strength of the medication is customized for you, by Dr. Cohen or Dr. Swartz, at the time of your visit. If you have pigmented areas that just won’t go away, this is the treatment for you.
This strong, yet gentle cream uses alpha-hydroxy acids to exfoliate dead cells and reduce the production of sebum, leaving skin smooth and pores tightened.
This antioxidant cream combines skin lighteners, Vitamins C & E, Alpha-Hydroxy Acids and saponins to protect and renew the skin. It fights damage and prevents skin from aging.
This powerful cream stimulates your skin to build new cells, collagen (preventing wrinkles) and elastin (tightening skin) to make your skin look and act younger. You can use it with Balancer, and it can be customized to be just the right strength for your skin.
BRIGHTEN THAT SMILE!
Show off that bright, confident smile on reunion night. If your pearly whites need a little refresh, use a brightening toothpaste and whitening strips. Be sure to avoid drinks that stain teeth including coffee, tea, soda, and red wine.
REFRESH YOUR FACE – LUNCHTIME TREATMENTS
If you are looking to see noticeable results quickly, other options to consider are “lunchtime treatments.” These skin rejuvenation treatments are quick and easy, requiring very little recovery which makes them the perfect “pick me up” before seeing your school classmates.
Dermal fillers are used to smooth lines and naturally re-contour your face to give you a younger, rejuvenated appearance without surgery. Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane and Volbella are all crystal-clear gels which are the same as a natural skin substance called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a sophisticated substance that retains 1,000 times its weight in water, retaining moisture in your skin. Dermal fillers are ideal for softening smile lines, filling lower eyelid hollows and dark circles, raising cheeks and filling hollows, and lifting drooping brows.
Botox is one of the most common treatments to help soften lines, eliminate crow’s feet, and make forehead lines disappear. For first time Botox users, we recommend getting this treatment at least four weeks before a major event. While some people see immediate results from Botox, it can take up to two weeks to see the full effect.
These non-surgical lunchtime treatments take about 15 minutes to administer and have minimal to no recovery time. Drs. Cohen and Swartz will customize a treatment plan based on your personal needs.
