As a society, we are incredibly stressed. We are overstimulated high-achievers. We have access to an infinite amount of information at our fingertips and that can be extremely taxing on the body and mind.
The stressors of this busy world cause a lot of stress on the body and often reflect directly on the skin. We live in a busy go go go world and most of the time people don’t take time to actually relax and let their body do what it knows how to do best, heal. When we’re seeking healing for the skin, I’ve found that the solution is not to buy expensive creams and serums. Rather, it is to look at the skin with an all-encompassing approach supporting the body from the inside out.
Over the past 10 years, I have seen firsthand that Men and Women receive the best results by having a professional that is monitoring and watching their skin and its changes along with the client. Skincare is a collaborative process in which we work together with your skin to bring about the best results possible for your skin. A proper at-home skincare regimen paired with monthly facials and water intake goes a long way to maintain the skin’s overall health.
Oftentimes, people will seek out an esthetician because they have questions about their skin and are not sure as to the proper way to take care of it. There is such a vast amount of information on the internet and so many professionals with varying strong opinions. I have noticed that people who take good care of their skin when they are younger and maintain good health for their skin with a proper and consistent skincare regimen age dramatically better and the health of the skin stays consistent. Having an esthetician that is aware of your skin and takes notes and documents changes ensures that the skin is properly nourished and taken care of.
The skin is the body’s largest organ. It is an extremely important organ as it protects us from the environment and is the barrier that keeps our other organs in and almost everything else out. Our skin is the first line of defense for our body but is given last priority before the other internal organs. Our skin will reflect imbalances occurring in the body by showing imperfections that manifest on the skin. Oftentimes, stress or disease in the body will manifest on the skin.
I intend to support anyone who wants to take great care of their skin. We combine great products with a lot of massage and education to assist in the healing and maintenance of healthy skin. I cannot do it alone. Skincare is a collaboration and we all have to do our part to support the skin in thriving. Like most things in life, collaboration is the best method and I have seen amazing results when everyone is on the same page.
A question I get a lot is “What is a good skincare regimen?” The answer is that doing something is exponentially better than doing nothing. Start exactly where you are at and build good skincare habits from there. Nothing feels better than a freshly cleansed face… until you feel what it is like to have a clean and exfoliated face, now that’s a nice feeling. Add a serum and a moisturizer and you have done a serious good for your skin. If you keep that momentum up you will soon find that you are aging gracefully and that is a great feeling.
