Why clean beauty is here to stay?

We believe that clean beauty is more than skin deep. It’s about the health and beauty choices we make, where the ingredients come from and how impactful it may be towards our health and the environment we live in today.

In total there are about 82,000 cosmetic ingredients.

– 12,500 out of those 82,000 cosmetic ingredients are labeled toxic.

– In Europe, 1,400 out of 12,500 toxic ingredients are banned by the European Union.

– In Canada, 600 toxic ingredients are banned by the Canadian Union.

– In the USA, ONLY 30 toxic ingredients are banned by the FDA.

-According to the Environmental Working Group

The foundation for healthy skin.

A show of hands: How many of us wash our face only in the morning? How many of us cleanse only at night? Or, how many of us cleanse morning and night?

The real question is how many of us “double cleanse” our face daily?
I can bet there aren’t many hands raised on this last question.

What is double cleansing?

Simply the term double cleanse means cleansing our skin once to rinse debris from the skin’s surface, followed by a second cleanse shortly after to help rinse away debris that may clog underneath the pores.

It’s really important to know the foundation for healthy skin is to follow a proper cleansing routine on a daily basis. I advise my facial clients all-the-time to include a double cleanse in their daily routine, especially at night.

No cleansing brushes and other skincare tools needed here!
All you need is your beautiful hands and a pea-sized to a quarter-sized amount of cleanser to do the dirty work.

The reason you want to double cleanse at night is throughout the day our skin is exposed to many pollutants, dirt, and debris which may cause aging and sensitivity. We also produce excess oil and sweat that may cause acne and congestion (a.k.a clogged pores). Makeup and daily SPF have chemicals that should be removed before going to bed. As we sleep our body regenerates, rebuilds collagen, and repairs itself from environmental and topical exposures. Leaving such chemicals on the skin while sleeping can cause long-term damage to your skin.

Continue to read below for my personal double cleanse routine that’s great for all skin types.


Every night
Dermalogica, Precleanse
LIFTLAB Skincare, Detox Cleanser +3

Step 1:
Make sure your face and hands are completely dry.
Apply 1 full pump of Dermalogica’s Precleanse onto the palms of hands and massage over the face.
For makeup-users: Apply 1 pump onto two cotton rounds. Gently remove stubborn makeup (eyeliner, mascara, and lip colors) before applying the cleanser to the entire face.
Add water to transform the cleansing oil into a milky emulsion that easily melts away debris from the skin’s surface and rinse off cleanser completely.

Step 2:
After rinsing Dermalogica’s Precleanse, dispense a pea-sized amount of LIFTLAB Skincare’s Detox Cleanser +3 and massage over damp skin. Make sure to also focus on the t-zone especially the crevices around the nasal area. Rinse away and follow with your normal skincare routine.

Make time to double cleanse your skin daily. I guarantee you’ll notice a significant difference!

Celebrating our first year anniversary.

Working in the beauty industry for over a decade I’ve been surrounded by companies who give back to the community and to those who are in need around the world. I’ve been fortunate to work with cosmetic companies such as MAC Cosmetics, Bare Minerals and Dermalogica who are fully committed to give back and make a difference in people lives.  As a women entrepreneur, one of my missions for Rasing Beauty is to give back to our community and support diversity and equality.

In celebration of Rasing Beauty’s first year anniversary, it was a huge honor to host an amazing fundraiser in honor of the Exam Partnership School Initiative (ESPI).
ESPI is a not-for-profit multi-year program helping students from low-income, racially isolated elementary and middle schools to help gain admittance at elite NYC exam schools such as Stuyvesant, Bronx Science, and Hunter College High Schools.
We are excited to announce all contributions made has helped us raised $2000.00! As promised, 100% of the proceeds have been donated directly to the amazing organization.
Looking forward to our second year!
– Joanne Hedstrom, Founder

High Frequency Facials

High-frequency facials may sound a bit intimidating but it’s a pain-free, beneficial facial tool that is a must-have for many licensed estheticians and a must-do for anyone receiving a facial treatment.
In short, the electrical modality promotes oxygen to the skin to help kill bacteria that cause acne and inflammation. This powerful tool also helps promotes circulation while increasing collagen and elasticity for aging skin.
In the end, high frequency leaves your skin glowing with a brighter appearance post-treatment.

Benefits include:

  • Treats and prevents acne.
  • Helps minimize the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Reduces blackheads
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Reduces eye puffiness and dark circles.
  • & much more!

What to expect when receiving a high-frequency facial at Rasing Beauty:

  • High Frequency is included in the following facial and body treatments:
    +Strictly Signature 30 & 60 minutes
    +Back Advance
  • Typically high-frequency treatment starts right after extractions.
  • A thin gauze is applied to the entire skin to help encourage more oxygen to work into the skin.
  • Treatment is usually performed for about 5 minutes but no longer than 10 minutes.

Please note there are contraindications to this treatment.
Please avoid if you are the following:

  • Pregnant.
  • Trying to become pregnant.
  • Epilepsy.
  • Heart conditions.
  • Diabetes.
  • Metal implants and pacemakers

The key to healthy skin.

We all are genetically born with a skin type. As we age, our skin changes due to the environment we live in and other common factors such as stress, hormones, diet, and more. This is commonly known as a skin condition. No matter what our skin goes through within our lifetime, our skin type will always remain the same but our skin condition may change from time to time.
Embrace and love your genetic skin type! It’s what your skin is meant to be. The power we each hold is keeping our skin conditions in check!

Now that we cleared out the differences between skin types and conditions, let us make sure we take the right steps to balance the skin.

I think we all can agree the one main goal for everyone is getting as close to maintaining a normal healthy skin type.
