Benefits of a Facial Routine by Casey Warner

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!

Protect and treat your skin in the summer by Casey Warner

Facials are especially important in the summer months.  Long days at the lake, fun beach weekends take a toll on our skin.  Be sure to wear sunscreen and reapply as needed throughout the day. Regular exfoliation such as peels or microdermabrasion sessions will keep your skin bright and youthful after all the damage of the summer days.  It is important to plan at least two days of downtime after a professional exfoliation.  Avoid long term sun exposer during these days.

 

Here is a great article about the benefits of chemical peels.  Try our Saving face Facial!

Benefits of Microdermabrasion by Casey Warner

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

-Clogged pores

-Oily or dull skin

-Enlarged pores

-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.

Giving Thanks by Casey Warner

As the Holiday Season nears I want to say how thankful I am that Casey, Jennifer and Lindsey have come into my life this year. It's a wonderful feeling to truly enjoy your work and those that you work with. I would also like to say how thankful I am for all of the wonderful people I get to meet at Drift. From the homebound elderly client, whom I have to make special trips to see, to the local-yocal that makes the Athens area a thriving community, to the unexpected professional athlete in town for a short visit,  they are all special blessings.

Hello everyone!  I wanted to let you know, I will be taking maternity leave November 5th- January 7th.  I'm so thankful to be able to bring another life into this world and to have such an amazing career with the BEST clients.  I will miss you all but Jennifer, Claire and Lindsey will be here to take care of all of you.  I will be spending my time deepening my connection to all the beauty in my life and will be back next year with a new, revived energy that I can't wait to share.  I am pursuing my Usui Reiki Master training and look forward to offering more energy work services soon. I am also looking into more advanced facial peels for my clients looking for deeper exfoliations.  I won't be able to work evenings like I had in the past but I will be working every other Sunday in order to accommodate clients that can't come during the week days.  Thank you all for your support.

Casey

Making Self Care a Priority by Casey Warner

Self Care is figuring out what you need in the moment and giving that to yourself for the overall betterment of your physical, emotional, mental or spiritual health and well-being.  At first making it a priority might be difficult, but taking small steps to incorporate self care into your routine can reduce stress levels but also validate and honor your own worth as well as enhance your confidence and self esteem.  Carving out time to rest, engaging in a favorite hobby, meditating, or getting a massage or facial are just a few ways to get started with making self care a priority.

In case you need reminding............YES! You deserve to take care of yourself!

Spring is springing and so is the heat! by Casey Warner

Northern Georgia spring weather is like a roller-coaster!

It's A/C by day and heat by night and if you are like me you forget to make the switch and wake up to shivering children and immediately crank up the thermostat.  By 5 pm you realize you are sweating and return to the thermostat to crank it down to a liveable temperature! If you are from Georgia then you know what true Georgia summers are like and it is best to be prepared for high heat!

The following infographic will help you identify the symptoms of more serious heat conditions. 

At Drift we truly believe in a Holistic approach to health.   Lifestyle, diet and spiritual health are all part of the bigger picture! Massage can help encourage proper elimination, which includes sweating.  Our bodies must sweat in order to detox and keep our body temperature at an ideal degree.

 So stay active, practice healthy self-care, stay hydrated and stay happy!
