Shizuka New York in American Spa Magazine

Shizuka New York Day Spa is mentioned in American Spa Magazine’s May 2015 issue!

The Geisha Facial is still getting media buzz, almost as much as it did when Shizuka New York Day Spa owner, Shizuka Bernstein, introduced the facial to the beauty and spa industry in 2008.

According to owner and celebrity facialist Shizuka Bernstein, geishas relied on frequent facials using nightingale droppings to not only remove makeup but also to brighten and heal their skin. She attributes the ingredient’s natural enzymes and guanine to helping impart a pearly luster to the skin.

In the article, spa consultant Peter Anderson speaks to how the origin of The Geisha Facial stems from ancient Japanese culture and how “that predates a modern understanding of skincare”.

Many of these facials have their roots in culture and chemistry that predates a modern understanding of skincare.

The usage of nightingale droppings in The Geisha Facial isn’t the facial’s only element with ancient Japanese origins. A recent article on Vogue.com highlights an ancient Japanese skincare technique known as double-cleansing. The Geisha Facial (and all other SNY facials) incorporates double-cleansing using the all-natural products from the Shizuka New York Skincare System to thoroughly cleanse and refresh the skin before the nightingale droppings are applied. This technique maximizes the “Geisha Glow” effect following the facial.

A recent article in The Hindustan Times mentions our Geisha Facial in an article about celebrity beauty secrets titled: Bird poop and leeches to mayonnaise: 17 bizarre celeb beauty secrets.

While The Geisha Facial is an all-natural way to cleanse the skin, the enzymes in the nightingale droppings work to also gently exfoliate and nourish the skin producing smooth glowing results. Just look at Victoria Beckham!

Bird poo? No, seriously! The Daily Mail reports that the former pop star’s glossy skin is all about bird poop and smearing it on her face. Also known as the Geisha facial, it is an ancient Japanese beauty practice that uses nightingale droppings to form a cleansing paste. Sounds gross, but it works. What’s more, celebrities (including Posh’s hubby David Beckham) are all about it today as it leaves the skin super shiny and smooth.

 


Further down the list notes that Halle Berry uses coffee grounds to deeply cleanse and smooth her skin. Coffee grounds is also a natural way to beat cellulite. Halle Berry proves our Coffee Break Mud Wrap is a tried and true way to achieve smooth vibrant skin!

Geisha Beauty Secrets that Go Beyond Bird Poop

Geisha Beauty Secrets that Go Beyond Bird Poop

Since Shizuka Bernstein created The Geisha Facial® utilizing the geisha beauty secret of nightingale droppings to cleanse and purify skin. The natural enzymes in the droppings removed the geishas’ heavy makeup while giving the skin nourishment making it smooth and supple.

Ancient geishas who were known for their flawless skin took great care to make sure they treated their skin as a prized possession. As much of a ritual as it was to put on their make up, removing it and prepping the skin before sleeping was another ritual altogether.

Believe it or not, there are geisha beauty secrets that go beyond bird poop. Another ingredient primary to the flawless skin of geisha beauty is rice. Rice has been a staple in Japanese cuisine for centuries so it comes as no surprise that Japanese people would find other ways to incorporate it into their lifestyles. For ancient geishas, it was a primary component to their beauty ritual to keep their skin bright and moisturized. Two ways rice was and still is used for the skin today is in its fermented and raw states.

sake

rice bran

Geisha Beauty Ingredient Highlight: Rice

Geishas were known to use sake and rice bran to brighten and soften their skin. Sake, which is prepared from fermented rice grains, contains kojic acid, a common ingredient in brightening serums and creams. When used over time kojic acid gradually brightens the skin, evening out skin tone. Additionally, Geishas applied sake to their skin for its natural antibacterial and anti-aging properties to purify (protect against acne) and soften skin.

Rice bran and rice bran oil comes from the bran that surrounds the rice grain. Rice bran is rich in nutrients such as fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins such as vitamins A and E. This oil naturally moisturizes and protects skin from free radical damage. Rice bran’s ability to retain moisture on the skin’s surface keeps the skin deeply hydrated creating a youthful glow.

You can bring geisha beauty secrets that go beyond bird poop into your skincare regimen everyday. In the effort to keep these time-honored traditions of geisha beauty secrets alive, Shizuka Bernstein incorporated sake and rice bran into the Shizuka New York Skincare System. These products are used in The Geisha Facial® and can be purchased so you can make geisha beauty secrets your own beauty secret!

How to be a Natural Beauty

 

 

Being a natural beauty means doing basic things like getting enough rest and eating nutritious foods. This can do wonders to enhance your overall mood and lead to a more rejuvenated appearance.

We came up some spa-related beauty tips that will let your natural beauty shine and help you feel better too!

Read on for 5 ways to easily enhance your natural beauty (and share it with the world)!

How to be a Natural Beauty

  1. Facial massage: loosen up tight facial muscles every night before bed.

Most spa facials will incorporate a facial massage into its treatment. Why? Because the massage draws nutrients into the face to prevent signs of aging and gives your face a healthy vibrant tone. A facial massage further increases circulation, oxygenates, and detoxes the skin tissues.

It’s best to massage your face at night when applying moisturizer. Simply incorporate a light massage into your moisturizing routine.  As an added bonus, the massage will help relax you before bedtime so you (and your smile muscles) will be rested and ready for the next day!

Loosen up tired “facial-expression” muscles that are hard at working during the day with this simple facial massage.

  1. Open your eyes: open up the look of your eyes with a Japanese eyelash perm treatment or Eyelash Extensions. Both can open up and revive the look of your face anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks! The effect gradually lessens as your lashes naturally grow and fall out.

A Japanese eyelash perm is a temporary way to give your lashes a luscious curl sans an eyelash curler! The treatment is safe and painless and you leave the spa looking bright eyed!

You can choose the tightness of the curl (the tighter the curl the more “glamorous” it will appear).

Eyelash extensions work in much the same way but without the chemical treatment of an eyelash perm. Fake lashes are individually applied to each of your natural lashes to make your lashes look naturally longer, fuller, and darker. So say goodbye to mascara!

  1. Keep lips hydrated and smooth for a youthful smile: exfoliate lips with a sugar scrub to get rid of dead skin on and around the lips. Then be sure to keep them moisturized to protect the new skin with a lip balm throughout the day.

Lips are an important feature of your face as it frames your smile. Exfoliation simply means removing the top layer of skin which is mostly consists of dead skin cells. When this top layer is removed a new layer that soft and even is revealed. Slough off dry skin with a gentle scrub, if the scrub is too harsh you could strip valuable natural oils from the skin causing more damage than good.

Sleep with a humidifier in your bedroom. This will keep your lips and skin hydrated throughout the night.

Get youthful looking lips by exfoliating them daily for a youthful smile.

Are Fillers Right for You?

  1. Optimize your cleansing routine: Find a facial cleanser that works best for your skin type (normal, oily, dry, sensitive, or combination skin).

Finding the right cleanser may take some trial and error but it’s just as important as washing your face. For example, if you have sensitive skin you’ll want to stick to a gentle cleanser with naturally moisturizing components like aloe vera, otherwise cleansers with certain chemicals will cause inflammation and strip skin of natural oils. It’s better to do a little research by asking your esthetician for advice or trying out samples. Choose the best cleanser that works with your skin’s chemistry and wash away dirt and debris without any unsightly side effects. And always remember to moisturize your face immediately after cleansing to rehydrate skin!

  1. Stay hydrated: drink plenty of water to keep skin hydrated and looking healthy throughout the day. If you’re not drinking enough water, your skin will start to look dry and flaky. Dry skin is less resilient and more prone to premature aging. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day will help flush toxins from your body and, overtime, will give you youthful glowing skin.

We all know that staying hydrated is important for overall good health, but for healthy skin it’s a must. Skin, like any other bodily organ, is made up of cells which are made up of water. Without this primary component, cells just wouldn’t be able to function optimally.

In addition to hydrating from the inside out, replenish lost moisture by applying a moisturizer within 2 minutes of showering or bathing. During this short window of time, the skin remains porous allowing for better absorption.

For optimal absorption, use a hydrating serum that contains hyalauronic acid before applying moisturizer. Hyalauronic acid attracts and holds water making your skin look plump and firm.

Rachael Bletchly’s Bird Brained Geisha Facial Review In The Daily Mirror

Rachael Bletchly's Bird Brained Geisha Facial Review In The Daily Mirror

A writer for the The Daily Mirror, a UK publication, recently wrote a review about a facial performed by a spa in London, England that’s strikingly similar to Shizuka new york’s Geisha Facial® .

While other spas around the world may imitate The Geisha Facial®, the original was born right here in New York City by Shizuka Bernstein and her husband, the dermatologist, Dr. Robert M. Bernstein. We still think it’s worth responding to her review. Everyone’s entitled to an opinion, right?!

While some may believe the facial is effective but not worth the price point, we beg to differ. The years of research Shizuka and her husband put into the treatment process ensures it’s “scientifically correct” and effective for balancing out skin tone, deepening hydration, and to ensure it’s facial-worthy, it’s a highly relaxing and calming experience.

As a master aesthetician herself, Shizuka ensures that every Geisha Facial® is performed with techniques that fit her standard of care and precision for each and every client. “I want to bring Japanese beauty secrets to all my clients so that their skin may benefit from all-natural Japanese ingredients without having to  leave the city. I’m not happy until my clients are satisfied with the results”, says Shizuka.

Every Geisha Facial® incorporates all-natural ingredients sourced directly from Japan like green tea, sake, and Mount Fuji water. With the help of Shizuka new york’s highly trained facialists, you’ll be transported to Japan and back in little under an hour!

Shizuka’s BeautyZen Corner: Wabi Sabi Aesthetic

Shizuka's BeautyZen Corner

What’s wabi sabi?

Many people have tried to explain the meaning of the Japanese term wabi sabi but with great difficulty. In the same way that we can’t “catch” or hold onto time, neither can words hold onto wabi sabi’s meaning. Wabi sabi relates to an understanding of natural beauty that dates all the way back to ancient Japanese tea ceremony practices.

The initial idea of wabi sabi stems from the ancient rituals of Japanese tea ceremony where the purity and simplicity of an objects’ natural beauty were honored. Revering the beauty of a handmade tea cup for its uneven glazing and cracks is a basic example of wabi sabi.

In modern times, wabi sabi relates to all aspects of life from relationships to design to beauty. Since all life is constantly changing, honoring life’s impermanence while revering the  imperfections in any given situation or item is also considered wabi sabi. A common misconception of wabi sabi is that it connotes carelessness or frivolity, while in fact wabi sabi is revealed and understood only when putting the utmost care and attention into embracing imperfections and change.

 

Wabi Sabi Aesthetic

Just like tea ceremony masters take impeccable care of their cracked and imperfect tea cups, wabi sabi aesthetic is about embracing the aging process while maintaining impeccable self care and pampering.

When extending the concept of wabi sabi into beauty, wabi sabi honors imperfections such as freckles and laugh lines over perfectly spotless and smooth skin. Wabi sabi natural beauty acknowledges that while skin care is a constant affirmation of self care, obsessing over changing the way we look isn’t.

Wabi sabi aesthetic encompasses self care and pampering alongside the three realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.

Try adding a little more wabi sabi aesthetic into your self care ritual with a pampering skin care treatment like The Geisha Facial®.

Shizuka’s BeautyZen Corner: Geisha Beauty Secrets

Shizuka's BeautyZen Corner

 

For centuries, geishas’ beauty has been likened to their mysteriously flawless skin.  Geisha beauty secrets reveal that simple ingredients native to Japan like rice bran, camellia oil, and green tea work together to protect, nourish, and brighten skin. These and other ingredients create the cornerstone of time-honored geisha beauty.

Geisha Beauty Secrets

Many describe geisha’s skin as mochi-hada or baby skin because it resembles skin so soft and flawless like a baby’s. The secret to their flawless skin attributes back to their skincare routine that’s been passed down for centuries.

At one time, the heavy makeup worn by geishas contained harsh chemicals like lead and zinc which led to severe skin problems. Eventually, they discovered nightingale droppings as a natural way to not only remove the makeup but to retexturize and strengthen the bonds of the skin at a cellular level. 

 

Traditional Skincare: Simple Ingredients

After Shizuka learned that geishas used simple ingredients easily sourced throughout Japan to care for their skin, she carefully studied the effects of these ingredients along with her husband, the dermatologist, Dr. Robert Bernstein. From their findings, Shizuka created The Geisha Facial® , which incorporates simple Japanese ingredients like rice bran, camellia oil, green tea, and  uguisi no fun or nightingale droppings.

 

Deep Cleansing Facial

Since ancient times the enzymes from nightingale droppings proved to deeply cleanse and lift away harsh chemicals from the skin leaving it renewed and dewy each time. (Think of it like an enzyme peel). By mixing the droppings proportionally with powdery rice bran, Shizuka created a fine enzyme exfoliate that’s been lauded the world over.

Winter Skin Care Tips: How To Care For Your Skin When You Have a Cold

Winter Skin Care Tips: How To Care For Your Skin When You Have a Cold

Winter Skin Care Tips For When You Have a Cold

 

Winter inevitably brings with it the much dreaded cold season.

 

One physical symptom of the cold that gives away you’re sick (besides a red nose!) is dry dehydrated skin. While we all know it takes time for a cold to subside, there are few things you can do to keep your skin hydrated and healthy while your immune system recovers.

 Winter Skin Care Tips for When you Have a Cold

  • Cool down: Even though a long hot shower can feel heavenly while the steamy water opens up sinuses and soothes body aches, the hot water can actually strip skin of moisture and dry it out.
  • Gently cleanse: Instead of using harsh soaps, instead stick with mild cleansers for sensitive skin. These are usually fragrance-free and gentle on the skin, helping it hold onto its natural oils.
  • Act fast: Moisturize skin often, especially after showering. Be sure to moisturize within 5 minutes after showering. Pores are most open at this time making them ready to receive and lock in moisture.
  • Protect yourself: Always wear protective clothing to shield exposed skin from the windy dry elements. If skin is left unprotected, flaky itchy skin can develop.
  • Regulate the air: Use a humidifier indoors to keep air moist. This will help regulate your skin and sinuses when you come in from the dry air outside.

How to Prep Your Skin for a Facial

Whether you’re a facial veteran or are about to get your first facial ever—knowing how to prepare your skin for your treatment will help extend the life of the facial keeping your face aglow longer.

Here are a few tips to help you prepare for a facial:

–          Know your skin. While our skilled estheticians will let you know the best treatment upon examining your skin, it’s best to already know which areas you’d like to target. For example:  Tone down oily skin, target acne prone areas, focus on lifting, deep cleansing with pore extraction, etc.. Communicate this to your esthetician and your treatment will be specially catered to your needs.

–          No scrubbing. Skip harsh cleansers or facial exfoliants before your treatment. Your facial will consist of exfoliation and most likely pore extraction as well, so leave the dirty work to a trained professional!

–          Save new products for later. Just clean your face following your usual cleansing routine. It’s best not to experiment with new products right before a facial so that your skin can be examined in its “usual” state. Using new products may have adverse reactions on your skin (i.e. over drying, inflammation, etc.), so it’s best to hold off until after your treatment.

–          To steam or not to steam. This is a personal preference that doesn’t positively or negatively affect your treatment. Some like to use a sauna before a facial to relax and open up pores. While this is an option, it’s not necessary since your face will be steamed and cleaned for an hour or more anyway.

–        Remove makeup. While estheticians will remove makeup for you before beginning your facial, you can arrive to the spa 5-10 minutes earlier and remove it yourself to save time. Or just arrive without makeup altogether.

It’s never too early to start getting regular facials for optimum skin health! Shizuka began getting facial treatments in her 20’s and says “facials have helped keep my skin clear and firm throughout the years”. See Shizuka’s related post for tips on how to continually refine your skincare routine: Look Great in Every Decade

Facial Massage for Stress-Busting Rejuvenation

The holidays can bring with it unwonted stress, causing you to look tired even if you’re not!

This happens because facial muscles store tension much like muscles in the body do, so a tired expression can actually start to feel “normal” for your face.

The next time you’re feeling zapped of energy or just need to revive a tired face, try this spa technique (offered in all Shizuka New York Spa Facials) to wake up tired facial muscles and go from Grinch to jolly St. Nick in no time!

At Shizuka New York, a facial massage is incorporated into each facial treatment to help stimulate collagen production and new cell regeneration. It also “wakes up” tired facial muscles making you look more awake by increasing blood flow and bringing oxygen to the skin.

A facial massage works wonders to relax overactive muscles and softens the expression so you APPEAR AND FEEL refreshed.

How to give yourself a Stress-Busting Facial Massage:

Start by applying a moisturizer, cream, or essential oil such as lavender to your face…

1.     Begin at the cheeks. Use your fingers or knuckles to draw big circles around your cheeks, be sure to always push the skin upward.

2.     Using upward strokes, firmly rub the skin from the mid jaw to the cheekbone. Apply pressure to the cheekbones for a few seconds.

3.     Massage smile lines by starting from the corners of the mouth and ending at the corners of the nose.

4.     Using your fingertips, apply pressure to the brow bones to lift and open the eyes. Apply light pressure around the eye sockets and out to the temples and up to the forehead.

5.     To plump lips, use forefinger and thumb to pinch upper and lower lips to stimulate blood flow.

6.     To end, drain lymphatic fluid from the face to the collarbone. Place fingertips under the eyes on either side of the bridge of your nose. Gently apply pressure in a long flowing motion across the under eye area to the temples, down the side of face (along sideburns), and down the neck to the collarbone.

Hey Sleeping Beauty–An Extra Hour of Beauty Sleep Awaits!

Don’t forget, Daylight’s Savings is right around the corner which means an extra hour of beauty sleep awaits!

It’s the perfect time to rethink your bedtime routine for a more restful and naturally beautifying sleep. While you sleep, your skin is actually undergoing a deep restorative process, expediting the skin’s natural healing and rejuvenating process. When you’re sleep deprived you’re more likely to wake up with under eye bags or a tired complexion. So the more restful your repose, the better the morning will be for you AND your skin!

Here are some tips to help promote a more restful (& beautifying) slumber:

  • Light an aromatherapy candle at least 30 minutes prior to bedtime. This will ensure the essential oils have enough time to warm and permeate the air. Let the soothing scents guide you to dreamland.
  •  Lavender is a popular aromatherapy scent due to its calming and soothing properties. Mist your face, pillow, and/or eye mask with a lavender mist before going to bed.
  • For a dull or tired complexion try using nighttime serums to promote cellular renewal:

Apply Shizuka New York’s Nighttime Anti-Aging Repair 1 & 2 to clean skin on alternating days. These products work together to even out skin tone and texture while targeting fine lines and wrinkles.

What’s your restful bedtime routine?

How to Save your Skin from Workout Mayhem

Breaking a sweat during a workout or a sauna session can do wonders for your skin and overall health.  Sweating draws impurities out from your body through your skin, clearing and cleansing your pores in the process. However, beware! If sweat sits on the skin’s surface for too long, it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria leading to acne, inflammation, and clogged pores.

Save your skin from workout mayhem by washing your face before & after working out.

Why before?

When you sweat, pores enlarge inviting anything left on your face IN.  Products like makeup and sunscreen can actually further clog your pores prohibiting your skin from breathing. If you MUST wear makeup while working out, fore go foundation and stick to eye and lip makeup only.

Use a gentle cleanser like a Foaming Facial Cleanser, wash with cool water, and pat dry. Finish with an alcohol-free toner like Shizuka New York Skin Freshener with sage and mushroom extract to soothe inflammation and lock in hydration. If you’re nowhere near running water, then at the very least wipe your face clean with cleansing facial wipes.

Kiss those Lip Lines Goodbye!

Kissing lines, or perioral lines, are wrinkles that form around the mouth by way of repetitive facial expressions.

As skin matures, it loses its elasticity and fine lines begin to form and deepen around the corners of the mouth and above the upper lip.

An effective anti-aging measure to prevent these lines from deepening is a routine peel or exfoliating treatment. Chemical, enzyme, and crystal peels (microdermabrasion) work to slough away dead skin cells revealing a brighter, firmer layer of skin.

For best results, opt for a spa treatment over an at-home kit. Spas use professional grade products which are more potent than those sold in stores. Plus you can relax knowing the procedure is being administered by a trained skin care expert!

 Other tips to prevent lip lines:

–          Refrain from smoking

–          Apply sunscreen regularly
(product recommendation: Chemfree Superblock)

–          Keep lips hydrated by using a lip balm
(product recommendation: Honey Vanilla Lip Balm )

–         Apply an anti-aging cream or serum daily
(product recommendation: Primrose Eye & Upper Lip Treatment Cream)
