The Importance of Facials

By April 29, 2020 Anti-Aging Gracefully, Facials For Beginners, For the Men, Home, My Beauty Tips, Pre-Bridal

Why Should I get a Facial?

For as far back as I can remember, I have been curious about the skin.  I would always wonder WHY I would break out on my back, of all places, and not my face, as much.  A good thing, right?  But that wasn’t enough for me.  I had to investigate further and find out why my back was so prone to breakouts. 

It wasn’t long until after a few years and I was in my thirties when the breakouts started to appear on my FACE!  Now, I was really concerned… So, I decided to seek help from a professional.  I went to get a facial.

I didn’t just get a facial, but the whole works.  I went all out… I got a sugar scrub on my body, a deep tissue massage, and finally a nice relaxing facial. 

The Esthetician was so thorough, she examined my skin (skin assessment), told me my Skin Type (Dry), and began to explain why I was breaking out in my Thirties.  She said I was suffering from Adult Acne, but I had a mild case.  This was due to my hormone changes, and from me using the wrong products for my skin type.  Who knew back then!

Now, as an Esthetician and Makeup Artist, I cannot stress enough, about getting a facial.  They can be a little intimidating at first, but once you understand the process, and experience the treatment, you won’t be able to get them enough.

Here are a few reasons I feel it’s important:

  1. When you get a facial you are getting a massage on the face.  This aids in lymphatic drainage and helps with circulation.  It will also help tighten some facial muscles. This is also very relaxing, which can help with stress.
  2. It removes impurities that get embedded in the pores, that can clog and cause inflamed and irritated pimples, or pore congestion.  You know, the blackheads, white heads, and huge pimples, that you DO NOT want on your face.
  3. You get a customized treatment for you, with a Mask that will restore and nourish your skin, giving you that Hollywood glow.
  4. Who doesn’t like to be pampered!  This will be YOUR time to relax.  Some of my clients go to sleep… this is allowed. 😉

So what are you waiting for get that facial ASAP..

Calling All Men!

By May 6, 2018 For the Men

MEN… You too can care for your skin, and should, without shame or judgement!

This message goes out to the Men in our lives..  Weather that’s your Hubby, Brother, Father, Uncle, close Cousin, Friend or that special Man.

Let them know that they aren’t off the hook for taking care of their skin.

So, Fellas, you should also take care of your skin just like us, as if your life depended on it, and it does.  By now everyone knows how important wearing sun screen is, RIGHT?  It’s NOT just for the ladies or the kids..

I feel our Men should be following these simple steps for healthy skin care also:

  • You must wash your face every night, with a cleanser, that’s right for your skin type (You may get the ones for Men) preferably not soap, that’s used on your body. Cleansing is important because if you knew how much guck is in the air, you wouldn’t want to sleep with these nasty particles sticking to your face and staying on your sheets!
  • You must put a moisturizer on your skin after this wash. Ok, ok, I will call this, “ lotion” if that makes you feel better.  I would prefer a “lotion” that’s best for your skin type, but we will get into that, at a later date. (again you can choose one that is for Men)
  • In the morning, wash your face again, and repeat the “lotion”… This time after the lotion, apply a small amount of sun screen, with a SPF of at least 15, if you are just walking from car, train, or bus.  If you work outside or spend most of your days outside, a SPF of 30 is recommended.  The lighter your skin, the higher the SPF, about SPF 30 is key.

A lot of men will work out, and take care of their bodies, why not do the same for the skin that protects the outside of this body?

Once you follow these simple steps, (which is only the beginning) you will start to look as young as you feel.

Until then, stay Beautiful!
