I get asked constantly how should you go about reapply sunscreen through out the average day, especially with those who wear makeup. When you think of sunscreen, your mind probably jumps to a thick, goopy lotion that smells way too strong and feels overly sticky. Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays doesn’t have to be a negative experience. Sunscreen comes in various applications from primers, foundations, light weight sprays and my current favorite, powder sunscreen.
Powder Sunscreen helps protect your skin, absorb excess oil, and even out your complexion without feeling heavy. Powder sunscreens are perfect for reapplying over makeup thought the day. They work great for oily skin or just taking away shine as well. I prefer a translucent SPF powder but they come in various shades.
The current favorite Eminence, Organic Sun Defense Minerals SPF 30. It comes with a built in brush making it super easy on the go.

Ultrasonic Facial is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that is safe for all skin types and conditions, from acne or rosacea to mature skin. Even the most sensitive skin will benefit from this treatment. The application of ultrasonic frequency is used to increase cellular turnover, plump up and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, improve acne, tighten enlarged pores, relieve puffy eyes, or fade dark eye circles. The sound waves penetrate into the skin but they do not cause any discomfort or adverse side effects, making the process highly effective, with no downtime, redness or pain.
The sound wave technology is used to penetrate below the surface of the skin, ultrasound energy is absorbed which results in a slight rise in temperature in the surrounding tissue. This promotes cellular renewal and repair, increases blood circulation, encourages lymphatic drainage, combats puffiness and swelling. Sound vibrations also have the power to push nutrient-rich serums deeper into the skin, increasing active ingredient in products.
Today was the first day I truly felt like Fall has arrived in Athens. I woke up to a cool crisp morning and in immediately wanted something pumpkin spiced. With the season changing, it might be time to add an oil to your skin care routine. When you turn on the heat or start up that fireplace, the humidity in your home/work/car decreases. Low humidity equals dry skin. We have the just the solution for you. Drift Wellness Studio's very own skin care line Ester, created by Casey Gunter, has an amazing Age Defying Night Treatment Oil. This oil is packed with the perfect combination of therapeutic organic essential oils and carrier oils, designed to prevent fine lines and age spots. This versatile product can also be used as a makeup remover and oil cleanser. This is hands down our #1 selling product and we have a new batch coming in just in time for Fall!
*tip~ Use on the back of the hands to prevent premature aging as well.
Facials can help with obvious issues such as acne, dehydration and dullness but the long term benefits go much deeper. The initial effect of a facial helps the skin look and feel brighter, smoother and refreshed. The long term benefits to regular facials prevent aging, reversal of hyperpigmention and scarring and stress reduction. Take time to take care of your skin as well as your mind. Wether you want to relax and de-stress or have an active conversation about your skin and life, we are here for you!
We offer Microdermabrasion in Athens GA.
Microdermabrasion sloughs off the dead and dull surface layers of the skin, stimulating an increase in collagen production and rejuvenation. Many patients see dramatic improvements in the tone, texture, and color of treated areas after just one treatment. This treatment also helps with multiple issuses incuding ;
- Fine Lines
-Oily or dull skin
-Age spots and hyperpigmentation
Microdermabrasion is appropriate for cosmetic problems associated with aging skin, such as sun damage, age spots and other types of discoloration and fine lines that occur early in the aging process. Microdermabrasion also benefits those with oily skin, reducing minor acne scarring. A single treatment is appropriate when you have a special occasion on the calendar and want your skin to look healthy and refreshed.
Treatments should be every 6-8 weeks but can done as soon as every 2 weeks. This non invasive process tackles flaws at the surface level, treating only the outermost layer of skin. The skin is not wounded or abraded past the epidermis.Your skin may be pink after microdermabrasion, but these side effects typically last only a day. Limiting both sun and wind exposure for 24-48 hours after treaments is also suggested.
