The Worlds Most Meaningful Maintenance…

I want to discuss with you something that’s weighed heavy on my heart for some time. We have entered the era of self care. People all over the world are prioritizing things that matter to them. For many especially women, and mothers we may be prioritizing our self care for the first time in our entire lives. This is HUGE. As we enter the wide world of self care we might find ourselves in a sea of ways to achieve a heightened sense of well being. It can get overwhelming.

First, let me say you absolutely deserve to be doing this. We provide maintenance for our houses, businesses, belongings. Hell even our cities are providing maintenance for our streets, and public places. Self care can be absolutely anything that you value. Of course anybody should encourage you to practice hobbies, and anything else that brings you joy as a form of self care. With that being said I recently saw a meme going around that said something along the lines of Self Care doesn’t just mean getting your nails done and shopping. It was designed to remind the every day consumer that their health is important to. It encouraged people to do things like exercise as a form of self care. Don’t mis read me here… I am 100% behind healthy habits and how they promote self care in all kinds of glorious ways. But I came here to make outwardly taking care our our bodies okay too. It is so easy to consider beauty routines a sort of lavish extra. It really IS NOT. ” Beauty ” routines are BOMB for an assortment of reasons, but really because it is a way of taking care of your body, and your doing it just for you.

Let me just enlighten you on how many body maintenance services the beauty world offers. The list is endless but the main ones include hair care and all that goes with it, waxing, lash extensions, nails, pedicures, massage, and so much more. That is just the tip of the iceberg. Also within those categories come variations of services. On average people find 2 or 3 types of beauty maintenance manageable at most. Some people get their hair and nails done. Some people prefer to spend all their time and money on hair extensions. Some ladies LOVE their faux lashes and make it a priority to get extensions on them every 2 weeks. I have had them and trust… Lash Extensions are game changers. BUT (and thats a big but) as much as I love getting my hair done and live for a perfect set of lashes. I want to talk to you about the most under rated self care service of all time.

FACIALS. Let me tell you why. Your skin is worn front and center right up on your face from the day you are born until the day you die. Your nails grow out, and your hair will eventually all be cut off and replaced by new, but your skin. That stays with you forever. There are things taking place behind the scenes like cellular turnover to keep your skin fresh, but it’s just not the same. The best advice I ever give my clients as a beauty professional is to incorporate regular facials into their outward body maintenance, and self care routines. Skincare seems like even more of a luxury than getting our roots colored or our nails done because it does not grow out with an obvious line of demarcation reminding us to care for it again. That does not make it any less important. It is actually the most important thing you can ever do for yourself. Those monthly facials may not seem like they are making all that much of a difference until suddenly your 70 years old, and you have half as many fine lines and dark spots, and wrinkles as your peers.

It is also just as much about health as it is about beauty. Your skin being the largest organ of your entire body is the most prone to attack from environmental stress. Those pores are soaking up everything you come in contact with. That makes choices about what we put on our skin SO much more important than we make them. Every body wash, glitter, makeup product, lotion, even shampoo we decide to use enters our body, and our blood stream directly through our skin.

Your Esthetician really is your best friend. Please go in and make a relationship with a Skincare Professional who can guide you on…

1. How often and what types of skincare services you need.

2. What you should be using at home.

3. What products to stay away from for long term health, and wellness.

4. Information on when you might need to get further help from a dermatologist or a doctor.

Your Esthi is on the front lines with you doing battle. Be the best you can be to your own body by making skincare a priority. I encourage you to consider if you must which beauty routine or service you might be willing to trade in for regular facials, and skincare.

If you are near us you can always book an appointment with our Skincare Specialist by visiting our website, and selecting the book online tab. If you are looking for a new Esthi you can start with a basic google search in your area. Remember any good Esthetician will always do an in depth consultation, and skin assessment and customize your services. There is no one size fits all in skincare.

The BEAUTY of a Chemical Peel

The Beauty of a Chemical Peel

By: Olivia Bergsrud

Before receiving a chemical peel clients usually have a lot of questions and it is important to consult a professional. I am here to give you some insight on the benefits…

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel uses different ingredients that work together to help speed up your skins exfoliation process and cell turnover rate. This also causes new skin to become visible, helping reach your skincare goals.

What do Chemical Peels treat? 

Chemical peels are great for all skin types. We offer five different peels at our salon with different ingredients to help with your skin care needs.

Our peels may include:

•Glycolic Salicylic Azelaic which is great for very dry or oily skin.

•Mandelic is a great beginner peels for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

•Beta Clarity works to improve acne prone skin, large pores, and to control future breakouts.

•Hydra Radiance helps with fine lines, wrinkles, and hyper-pigmentation.

•Triple Transformation addresses all skin care needs aggressively.

You are able to mix and match all these peels so they are customized to your skin type.

How will my skin look after a Chemical Peel?
Your skin may look flushed for the next few hours. You may have light peeling or flaking for the next 3-5 days. We suggest moisturizing day and night to help with this process.

Why do I need a Chemical Peel?

Your skins natural cell turnover rate is every 28 days. By receiving chemical peels regularly this helps encourage this process to happen faster, giving you healthier skin. Whether you want to work on diminishing your fine lines or you just want to brighten your skins appearance a chemical peel will be your best friend!

I hope this helps you understand how amazing chemical peels are for all of your skin care goals. If you have any questions please give us a call or come in for a complimentary skin care consultation.

I look forward to meeting you all!
