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..

The 10 Super Foods for Your Skin

By July 30, 2018 Home, My Beauty Tips

10 Super foods for the skin:

I have always wondered about the foods we consume and how they effect the skin.  I have found these 10 to be true:

1-Blueberry-  Blueberries fall into the tightener/re-newer category when it comes to skincare. This healthy and delicious antioxidant-rich fruit is high in fiber, vitamin A and vitamin C and low in saturated fat, cholesterol and  sodium. In addition, these tasty berries will help clear acne and blotchy spots on your skin, leaving you with a healthier, happier glow.

2-Spinach–  Leafy green vegetables, particularly spinach, are rich in nutrients and antioxidants. This particular vegetable is packed with lutein which helps to keep your eyes sparkling white. This healthy vegetable is also a great source of vitamin B, C and E as well as potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids. Swapping your normal lettuce for spinach will work wonders for your skin.

3-Kiwi-  Kiwis fall into the category of firming when it comes to skincare. This sour fruit will help prevent wrinkles while keeping your bones and teeth healthy as well. The antioxidants found in this delicious fruit will also help protect you from cancer – a definite bonus when it comes to a healthy diet.

4-Dark Chocolate–   Indulge in a few pieces of chocolate from every now and again. It may come as a surprise but dark chocolate – specifically chocolate that has high flavonol content and is at least 60 percent cocoa – helps skin stay hydrated. In addition, it also protects your skin from sun damage – one of the biggest culprits of unhealthy looking skin.

5-Salmon–  Salmon has been proven to help moisturize skin and keep it looking healthy and radiant. This fish is so rich in omega-3 fatty acids that it nourishes the skin by reducing the body’s production of inflammatory substances. In short, it helps clear clogged pores and erase fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking clear and refreshed.

6-Watermelon–  Watermelon falls into the sun protector/cancer fighter categories when it comes to skincare. While protecting you from cancer doesn’t necessarily help with maintaining a healthy glow, it’s definitely something you should be looking for when choosing foods for your diet. This mouth-watering fruit will help clear your blemishes, smooth your skin and improve your skin’s elasticity – all important elements of a healthy, fresh looking face.

7-Oranges–  Oranges are considered very effective wrinkle defenders by nutritionists all over the world. This delicious fruit is known for its toning properties. It’s also a great source of vitamin C (as most of you already know) which helps improve the texture and color of your skin. To finish things off, this citrus fruit helps restore collagen, leaving your skin firm and equipped to fight the signs of early aging.  This is why Vitamin C is used as an ingredient in a lot of products today.

8-Berries–  We mentioned blueberries in earlier on in the list, but it’s worth noting that all berries (particularly raspberries, blackberries and strawberries) are great in achieving a healthy glow. Like oranges and grapefruits, these fruits are high in vitamin C – a strong antioxidant which keeps the collagen in your skin healthy. They’re also high in anthocyanin and quercetin, which will help reduce inflammation and keep your skin looking evenly toned and radiant.

9-Avocados–  Avocados are great for preventing blemishes and enhancing the quality of your skin. This popular fruit is high in vitamins A, D and E. These vitamins help prevent the signs of aging. Avocados are also high in minerals like copper and iron. These minerals help the skin fight the signs of aging by defending against free radicals. Furthermore, this delicious fruit will help promote skin elasticity and pigment – leaving your skin (and hair) looking healthy refreshed all day long.

10-Eggs–  Eggs help your skin with tissue repair. The compounds found in eggs also help keep your skin clear of infections and acne. These breakfast items (which are also used in countless recipes everyday) are high in selenium, vitamin A and copper. Selenium wards off skin infections, vitamin A prevents your skin from developing abnormal clumps (which can turn into moles and skin tags) and copper promotes skin elasticity. A triple threat, if you ask us.

These are my favorites and if you are eating your portions correctly, they may work for you as well.  I know some people may have allergies to some of these foods, however; you can substitute the items with other foods that contain similar properties.

Thanks again for reading.

Hello there, Beauty Cutie!

Thank you, and Welcome to my Beauty Blog…

I’m Stacey from S.McKoi, Beauty, a beauty company that I started in 2010, that helps professional women embrace their inner beauty as well as their outer beauty.

I have always loved BEAUTY, everything from Fashion, to Art, to Nature.  You can say BEAUTY is in my blood.. I also love to share information.  If I can share something I know and love, I want to do that. This blog will give me that platform to share with you, somethings you may know and somethings you may not.

I like to sample a lot of different beauty products, like makeup and skincare, before use with my clients, so I will know if it could be right for them.  This will allow me to know if there are any negative reactions or if there are great results. I know everyone is different… But if it works for me, (with my sensitive skin) chances are they will work for other women.

I’ll be sharing with you what I use, and how and what you can use too.

I’ll be talking about my:

~ Pre- Bridal,

~ For the Men,

~ Facials for Beginners

~ Slowing Down The Aging process, and more..

So, until my next post, Stay Beautiful!

Peace & Love,
