Wishing you a warm and wonderful holiday season 🙂
Ruth Swissa likes to call this the elixir of youth. Hibiscus is nature’s anti-aging gift to you. It contains a natural source of alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) which is the leading compound found in anti-aging products. You can utilize this flower by mixing it with other skincare products, such as milk, honey, turmeric, or rose water. Simply blend the ingredients and watch hibiscus work its magic. Bot only does it improve your complexion by tightening your skin, but it has other benefits such as reducing dark circles / eye-bags and reducing suntan.

Ruth Swissa uncovered some common misconceptions about acne
Popping pimples makes everything better — wrong. Picking at your skin is one of the worst things you could do. Popping pimples releases inflammatory secretion which can cause scarring and infect your clean pores (resulting in more pimples).
Acne doesn’t have to do with what we eat — Although it’s not 100% clear whether acne is caused by diet or genetics, there is some proof. Greasy foods as well as dairy are the leading cause of breakouts. Stay away from the deep fried foods!
Acne is a teen-thing — false, acne is also becoming pretty common amongst adults which is something dermatologists refer to as the “adult acne epidemic”. (Good news is that it’s treated the same way teenage acne is treated)
Acne goes away on its own — Don’t let those zits inhibit your skin silently. Acne is caused by clogged pores, most likely by natural oils. There are plenty of treatments to unclog a swollen pimple.

This year don’t regret those Valentine’s Day chocolates, your skin needs ’em. Ruth Swissa is gonna let you in on a little beauty secret: beauty doesn’t mean a life sentence of leafy greens. Indulge in some sultry dark chocolate chunks and reap the benefits.
Chocolate Reduces Blood Pressure
Dark Chocolate relaxes blood vessels. This in turn will reduce blood pressure. Chocolate is perhaps the natural-born chiller; a ‘feel-good inc’ opiate.
Chocolate is an organic stress reliever – it reduces the formation of stress hormones. Consequently, this will promote less collagen breakdown in your skin and ultimately leave you with fewer wrinkles in the long run.
Chocolate contains Flavonols, antioxidants that help your skin combat UV damage, fight free radicals, and increase blood flow. So in other words, fewer wrinkles, fewer sunspots, and an irresistible dewy glow.
~*Keep Label in Mind*~
Even though the chocolate seal may read “70% Dark Chocolate”, if the first ingredient reads “Milk” or “Sugar”, you know your bar does not contain 70% or more cocoa content. Also, to achieve these beauty benefits, make sure you’re indulging in a chocolate bar that contains 70% or more cocoa content. No glacé milk/white chocolate allowed. Portions do come into play as well; make sure you’re not eating more than one ounce of this gushy-good stuff.
One valuable quality at Ruth Swissa’s medical spa is the guarantee of confidentiality. In the beauty and medical industry, the primary form of advertisement is on a word-to-mouth basis; however, at Ruth Swissa’s med spa, we put our client’s wishes first. If one desires not to share their procedures with others, Ruth will make sure that no information, on the spa’s behalf, is released. Ruth Swissa follows the rules of HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, devoutly. This federal law restricts the access of an individuals’ private medical information, meaning if anyone were to inquire about another person’s procedures, by law Ruth Swissa is not permitted to give out any information. “This is what celebrities value the most,” Ruth says. She has welcomed many stars and starlets into her quaint med spa and she explains that keeping procedures sub rosa is their greatest desire. With highest confidence, Ruth Swissa is here to accentuate beauty and keep her clients comfortable.
A: When getting permanent eyebrows done, there is an ongoing misconception that one would have to get rid of all current eyebrow hair. Ruth Swissa is here to clear up this myth and provide you with information that’s actually quite the contrary. At Ruth Swissa Professional Permanent Makeup and Skin, we put the utmost importance to eyebrow hair, looking to preserve each strand. Many customers have asked Ruth if they would need to shave their eyebrows clean in order to get permanent eyebrows but this is a false idea. Ruth Swissa uses the eyebrow hair as a simple add-on to the already 3-d looking pigment she applies just to provide you with realistic and natural result.
On the other hand, there are many customers who come to Ruth Swissa who suffer from hair-loss diseases such as alopecia or trichotillomania and don’t have any eyebrow hair for Ruth to work with. Not to worry, Ruth has an artistic eye and skillful technique, she is able to apply permanent makeup pigment in a way where the strokes look like real hair. Ruth never uses generic stencils that were in style twenty years ago. Each of our clients leave with natural-looking eyebrows that suit and enhance their individual facial expression.
