Vita Beauty Blog, Owner Edition: Bernadette Victoria’s Beauty Basics

I’m a low maintenance girlie, especially in the summer, who loves waking up ready to take on a busy day with minimal effort. I LOVE the sunshine and making the most of the beautiful days we have. I created the menu at Vita Beauty Bar with my favorite selection of services and products I personally use to maintain my low maintenance lifestyle.

I’m almost always planning my services around events and outdoor activities. My top MUST HAVE treatments consistently include spray tans, peels, brow lamination, pedicures, laser hair removal and jewelry. Basically, the whole menu (lol)

I typically start my summer prep in spring. Here is my beauty routine and summer cheat sheet:

I had permanent jewelry applied last year and its holding on STRONG. 

My Never Changing Weekly Ritual:

I always do weekly peels at home using DerMed, they are a safe low impact option that deliver AMAZING results. I love doing them 2-3 days before an event paired with the micro-crystal polish for the most FLAWLESS complexion. They are also not overly concerning for sun exposure, especially for our seasoned peel gals, you can generally get outside as early as 48 hours in the sunshine with sun protection such as our mineral based sunscreen, Unsun, which is a zinc base and reflects sun away resulting in reduced inflammation risk.

My Monthly Rituals:

A monthly pedicure + brow tint & wax are nice, easy and no planning style treatment I do every month. I usually do a brow lamination bi-monthly for a full simply styled brow look.

My Pre-Summer Intensive Facial Treatment:

I like to do an intensive treatment such as a deeper peel and dermaplaning or microneedling in about June. Your best skin is typically the 3rd week after an intensive treatment, plan for that time before a big event! Intensive sun should likely be avoided for about a week prior and following this treatment.

Through the summer, I use a zinc based sunscreen (Unsun is our FAV) and keep my skin safe from harmful uv rays and inflammation, meaning I can also safely treat myself all summer long! I keep my skin looking sun kissed with a bi-weekly spray tan. This is GOLD, they fade so evenly and offer a beautiful glow without harmful uv rays. We have a spray tan package that gives you savings on bundles called the Bronzed Beauty!  Since I’m on maintenance for my laser, I generally will do a full body laser treatment in June so I can be hair free and not worry about shaving and be ready to enjoy any and all summer activities. I will keep up with my weekly peels at home and do a facial that includes dermaplaning or light peel once a month in July and August so my skin is always clean, clear and ready for any events!

All treatments are summer safe and enhance your summer lifestyle by helping you stay carefree. You just need to protect your gorgeous skin with a quality mineral based sunscreen and plan treatments accordingly. Enjoy the sun safely, beauties <3
