Easy to make Homemade Facial Masks!

Home and Professional Facials at Pearl Beauty Salon, Dublin 2

Face masks play a vital role in your regular skin care regime and should be used once or twice a week, depending on the condition of your skin and the type of mask used. After thoroughly cleansing and using a scrub on your skin, your mask should be applied to the neck and face area.

Here at Pearl Beauty Salon, we believe that a combination of professional facial treatments, along with diligent home care makes for the best skin care regime for everyone. All of our professional Dermalogica facial treatments, including the highly regarded Prescriptive Facial, are currently available with 50% off. Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion, a favourite treatment of many celebrities and popular figures, is also available at 50% off, so give us a call on 01 679 0625 to make your booking. Follow the links for more information on these treatments.

Not everybody has the same skin type on all areas of their face, so you do not have to use the same mask all over if this is so, i.e.- an oily t-zone will need a deep cleansing type of mask whereas if the rest of your face is dry you will need to use a more moisturising mask there.

Homemade facial masks provide essential nutrients and vitamins to dull, lifeless, and aging skin, and skin with excess oil production, by using ingredients easily available at home. These homemade masks can unclog pores and hydrate facial skin, providing the crucial moisture needed to combat aging and dry skin. Some can exfoliate in addition to supplying moisture, providing nutrients, aiding in conditioning, and cleansing the skin.

Homemade facial masks use ingredients with antioxidant, demulcent and emollient properties. They work by drawing blood to the surface of the skin and stimulating the skin’s circulation to the face and neck, replacing moisture lost due to aging, dryness, and other factors, deep cleansing and absorbing excess oil on the skin and also by encouraging beautiful skin tone, skin firming and cell renewal. Using different ingredients you can customize your own facial masks at home to suit your skin type. 

Making a homemade facial mask is extremely easy with natural skin care recipes. You just need to open your kitchen cabinet to mix up a natural homemade facial skin care delight. A homemade facial mask, using natural ingredients from your refrigerator, pantry, or even from your garden, is a beneficial, enriching and relaxing anti-aging skin rejuvenation treat. Here are a few suggestions for some facial masks for you to rustle up and use at home. And don’t forget there are many more ingredient’s out there, experiment with them and see which homemade facial mask suits your skin the best!

Masks for Dry Skin

1.

  • ½ avocado
  •  ¼ cup honey
  • plain olive oil

Mix these ingredients together (make sure to mash into a creamy pulp) and apply to the face for approx 20 minutes, and rinse off with a warm cloth. The fat from the avocado is very hydrating, as is the natural honey.

2.

  • egg yolk
  • 1 banana
  • 2tsp olive oil/ honey

Mix the ingredients together until a paste is formed. Apply to the face and neck and leave for 15minutes. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry.

Masks for Oily Skin
1.

  •  tsp lemon juice
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 cup strawberries ( test behind your ear first- waiting for 24hrs to make sure no reaction occurs- because many people are allergic to strawberies used this way even thougth they can eat them just fine)Mix these ingredients and leave on for about 10 minutes, and rinse off with a warm cloth. Lemon and Strawberries both work as astringents, helping to absorb excess oil on the skin.   

2.

  • ½ cucumber
  • 1 tbsp natural yogurt
  • few drops of lemon/ lime/ orange

Puree the cucumber in a blender then mix in the yogurt and the few drops of juice and apply to face. Leave for 20 minutes before rinsing off with a clean warm cloth.

3.

  •  1½  tomato
  • potato flour

Puree the flesh of the tomato and mix with some potato flour to a spreadable paste and apply to the skin. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, rinse off with warm water.

Masks for Ageing Skin

1.

  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp warm water
  • ¼ avocado
    Dissolve the sugar in the warm water and avocado, and do not use until done. Sugar can be harsh for thinning skin, so make sure it is completely mixed in with the water and avocado. Apply the mixture and massage in small upward cicles for about 5 minutes, then leaving the mask sit on the skin for a further 5 minutes. When you are done, rinse the face and pat dry. Since sugar is used to gently exfoliate, it works best with maturing skin, as well as the mixture softening and hydrating the lines caused by ageing.

2.

  • 1 tbsp finely ground oatmeal
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp avocado/ almond oil
  • 1 tbsp rose clay

Mix enough water with the ingredients to make a paste. Leave on skin for 15-20mins. Wash off with warm water and pat dry.

Masks for Sensitive Skin

1.

  • 1 cup natural yogurt (just-out-of-the-fridge cold)
  • ½ cup oatmeal (any type of basic oatmeal works here)

Mix the ingredients together. Apply to the skin for 10-15 minutes.
Wash off mask with a washcloth steamed in the microwave (careful that it’s not too hot). This mask is great for soothing chapped, sunburned or otherwise irritated skin. 
It also works well for other skin types. For oily skin, add a couple drops of lemon or lime juice. For dry skin, mix in a couple tablespoons of honey.

2.

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tbsp honey

Mix the banana and honey together. You can add a few drops of juice from an orange or a lemon if your skin is slightly oily. 
Apply to face for 15 minutes before rinsing with a cool washcloth/steaming warm washcloth.

Masks for the Eyes

1. To lighten dark circles under your eyes, wrap a grated raw potato in cheesecloth and apply to eyelids for 15-20 minutes. Wipe off residue and apply an eye cream.

2. Slice cucumber and put on your eyes for half an hour everyday for 15 days to lighten dark circles.

3. To help diminish dark under-eye circles and puffy eye’s, apply damp tea-bags over the eyes and leave for 15-20minutes before removing them.

Dental Hygienist Services at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, Dublin 2

A Dental Hygienist visit keeps teeth in tip-top shape

Probably the most undervalued and abused member of the dental team, both by dentists and patients, Dental Hygienists have a hard life, as many dentists use them as a depository for all the patients and work they don’t want themselves, and many patients don’t quite understand their role when they’re sent to see them.

In our world here at Pearl Dental, Dublin 2, our hygienist, Joann, is considered a vital part of our dental team, and helps maintain optimum oral health for our patients, as well as ensuring that complex restorations are cleaned and maintained as they should be, for maximum lifespan. One of the most important tasks that a dental hygienist undertakes is the treatment of gum disease and the maintenance of the gum health thereafter. If you have bleeding gums, or find that your dentist spends only a couple of minutes cleaning your teeth at your check-up visit, it’s probably time to see the hygienist to find out what a properly clean mouth feeels like.

That smile needs care. Your hygienist is the ideal person to provide it.

If you want a clean, healthy mouth, perfect oral hygiene, and immaculately kissable breath, a hygienist should become one of your best friends, as she will be able to advise you on the most appropriate oral hygiene techniques for your mouth, will clean your teeth more diligently, and more thoroughly than the majority of dentists, and should take a personal interest in you becoming a paragon of oral health. She is generally able to treat the majority of cases of gum disease, and you can see her as often as you wish to maintain that perfect smile, without having to see the dentist every time.

If you get into knots with floss, drink mouthwash as an aperitif, and use interdental brushes to clean your ears, you need a visit to the hygienist ASAP!

Visit the hygienist to learn the best hygiene techniques for your mouth

Our hygienist, Joann, is available Wednesdays and Fridays in our studio on Nassau Street, and will gently, but thoroughly, clean and polish your mouth, and coax you into better oral hygiene habits. She is also appreciated by us dentists too, as she can clean a mouth better than any of us are able!

30% off Incredible Inch Loss Body Wraps at Pearl Dental and Beauty Clinic, Dublin 2

Our Harley Inch Loss Body Wrap System consists of wrapping the body in elastic and cotton wrap bandages, which have been soaking in an Aloe Vera formula before wrapping. They are then warmed gently. The warmth of the wraps opens the pores of the skin allowing the solution to penetrate into the dermal layer.
Before the bandages are applied, a detoxifying anti- cellulite gel is applied to the problematic areas to enhance the treatment even further.
After you are completely wrapped you will put on a sauna suit that will keep the wraps moist with our aloe/mineral/vitamin/herb solution. This suit keeps the warmth in, allowing the pores to absorb the solution while you are resting for 1 hour.

Body Wrapping eliminates toxins and poisons, reduces cellulite, increases skin elasticity, it firms and tones, can sooth aching muscles and it aids inch loss. A truly gentle detoxifying treatment with additional health benefits.

The pure Aloe Vera works as a carrier to take the vitamins, minerals and herbs to the third layer of skin, called the adipose “fat” layer, and therefore helps break-up fat cells. Once these tissues have broken down they are then flushed out through the body’s natural waste system, and to encourage this cleansing process it is important to drink at least 8 glasses of water each day to help flush out further toxins and impurities after the wrap.

Follow this link for more information on body wrap techniques.

The entire wrap process takes approximately two hours,. Thirty minutes is spent on measuring and wrapping, one hour is spent in the wraps, with thirty minutes post measuring. With our Inch Loss Body Wraps you can expect to lose between six and fifteen inches in one visit!
The number of wraps you will need depends on the amount of inches that you want to lose. Inch loss will vary from wrap to wrap for several reasons: Percentage of body fat, elasticity of skin, and the inches will stay off if you follow our recommendations and homecare advice.

The Inch Loss Body Wrap at Pearl Beauty Salon is also great for reducing cellulite.

 
So if you are feeling the extra few pounds before Summer Season arrives and are looking for an easy way to shed them, give us a call at Pearl Dental and Beauty Clinic on 01 679 0625, or e-mail us at reception@pearltreatments.ie for your incredible Inch Loss Body Wrap!

 We also have special offers on many other beauty and massage treatments.

Root Canal Treatment at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, Dublin 2

Root canal treatment has long inspired fear and dread in all who hear the words, but here at Pearl Dental, Dubin 2, we don’t believe it should be that way. Prices for RCT start from €450 for simple, routine, single rooted teeth, and reach around €850 for the most complex multi-rooted back teeth. These fees are tax deductable at 20%, and can also be reduced if you are qualified under your PRSI contributions.

All of our dentists are trained in the latest techniques:

  • for anaesthesia before root canal treatment
  • for effective isolation of the tooth during root canal treatment, to ensure optimum sterilisation of the root canals
  • for efficient and rapid cleaning of the root canals 
  • in effective methods of sealing the canals afterwards.

The procedure is quite time consuming, as effective sterilising of root canals takes patience, care and advanced techniques, but the procedure should be ENTIRELY painless, should only need to be undertaken once, assuming that optimum techniques are used, and enables an otherwise doomed tooth to be saved for the longterm.

Root canal treatment is not cheap, due to the time and materials used to undertake the procedure effectively, and if you do require a root canal treatment, use this checklist to see if your dentist is anywhere near up to speed. Remember, a failed root treatment can often lead to loss of the tooth, so you want to ensure that the chances of success are maximised, as follows:

  1. Rubber dam This is essential in ensuring a sterile environment, and eliminating any leakage of chemicals into the mouth during the procedure.
  2. Magnification. Almost every specialist in root canal therapy will insist that root canal treatment can never be undertaken effectively without magnification to enable maximum visualisation of the root canal system. This is imperative in ensuring that every canal is located and cleaned effectively. We regularly find ourselves undertaking retreatment of a tooth that has previously been root treated elsewhere due to the fact that a canal had been missed. Re treatment is expensive, and you don’t want the job done twice!
  3. Nickel Titanium Files. All of the most recent developments in RCT revolve around the use of these types of specialist files, which make for faster and more accurate cleaning of the canals.
  4. Thermal Filling Materials. It is generally accepted that thermally packed fillers are the most effective method of sealing root canals.
  5. Tooth Seal after RCT. For almost all back teeth, it is recommended that a crown be placed after RCT to strengthen and protect the tooth, which can become brittle after RCT. Your dentist should advise you of this before the procedure begins, as the crown may be more expensive than the RCT, and you should be aware of all the costs before you begin.

The basic procedure for RCT can be found below, and for more information, see our main site www.pearltreatments.ie, call us on 01 679 0625, or e-mail us at reception@pearltreatments.ie.
