Photos I reveal of clients are usually taken before their treatments. I could easily use post facial/extractions as the โ€˜beforeโ€™ photos to make the results appear more drastic. The real change is when you see the skin in calm, normal state. 
In pretty minimal time, we got her ingrown hairs and hyperpigmentation to subside significantly, which was mostly due to shaving/laser hair removal. Her overall texture and congestion is a lot better too๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ (this was only after her 2nd visit) #progressnotperfection15 days agoDownload
This poor 14 year-old kid didnโ€™t know what he was in for (wait for the end) ๐Ÿ˜‚โฃโฃ

I got 3 juicy extractions out of him which was so satisfying for me and his sister who was watching lol - he really was a trooper though.โฃโฃ
Iโ€™m glad she brought him in so they avoided taking matters into their own hands and possibly making it worse ๐Ÿ˜Ÿโฃโฃ

I believed the fact that he wears glasses daily was contributing to the problem. Make sure you always clean your frames because they can hold so much unseen bacteria ! โฃ

HYDROJELLY MASKS, my current obsession.
โ€”-
Formulated primarily with Algae and Electrolytes, these masks help the skin achieve a natural moisture balance, keeping the lipid barrier strong and healthy. Organic components of ๐ŸŒฑrice flower ๐ŸŒฑ whole grain oat flower and ๐ŸŒฑ willow bark reduces redness and inflammation, gently exfoliates, and protects against environmental stresses.

They are customized depending on what conditions are being targeted. I also canโ€™t even begin to explain how amazing they smell and feel on the skin. The one in this photo is a brightening complex with pieces of orange peel meant to inhibit melanin production to lighten and prevent dark spots/pigmentation. Its illuminating powers gives your skin the ultimate glow! โœจ *Featured in the Organic Probiotic Clear and Correct Facial, but can also be added on to any treatment for $20*a month agoDownload
In light of celebrating my 2nd year of #nationalestheticianday I felt inclined to share these transformation photos of MY skin (circa 2013 v. today). Part of the reason I was inspired to pursue a career in esthetics was because of my personal battle with acne. Once upon a time I would've never had the courage to post what it really looked like. Now I do because the beauty in sharing creates a community that allows others to step forward and be their true, unfiltered selves with no shame or guilt. I give strength and hope to those struggling with their own skin insecurities. โฃโฃ

I was covered in pustules, cysts, whiteheads, blackheads...you name it. My skin was so inflamed because I was stripping it with creams from the dermatologist and other products that were heavily pushed on to me. I remember feeling so hopeless at one point but I didnโ€™t give up. I trial and errorโ€™d ๐š ๐ฅ๐จ๐ญ and when I eventually became an Esthetician I knew I had to educate and help others. โฃโฃ

Skincare is my PASSION, I didn't do this to chase money or as an easy way out. I got into this career a year after graduating college with my Bachelor's. Honestly, I thought I'd be broke doing this in the beginning. Anything you believe in can grow into a lucrative business or career. It's a gift to wakeup and love what you do everyday and my gratitude is given to everyone who makes that happen for me๐Ÿ’—a month agoDownload
Are you still convinced this is true? The answer is NO! no. no. no. 
This was something I believed for a long time and thought I was washing my acne away. 
This is very common for those with dry skin as well. The reality is โ€” the more you scrub and wash, the more youโ€™re stripping your skin of itโ€™s natural oils. You donโ€™t need to wash your face 3x a day (twice max). Deep exfoliation would be 1-3x/week.

Really excited about this clientโ€™s results after just one facial! So much of her inflammation has gone down and she loaded up on products after loving her samples. Weโ€™re working on incorporating acids/acne fighting ingredients as well as those that will repair her acid mantle to reduce redness. 
Nothing makes me happier than a returning client and seeing their progression in person. Canโ€™t wait see her future improvements ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผa month agoDownload

Although itโ€™s never ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ ๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ฆ *inserts favorite line* preventative care is always the best care!โฃ
โฃ
In my experience, many clients who had flawless skin in their teens and early 20s donโ€™t start noticing changes until theyโ€™ve reached their 30s. โฃ
โฃ
All the sun damage that accumulated overtime has turned from a sweet tan and cute freckles to discoloration and age/liver spots. Their once soft and clear skin is now filled with fine lines and blemishes. Most times they confess wishing they started to care more for their skin at a younger age. It takes a lot more time and effort to erase the damage once itโ€™s already been done. โฃ
2 major factors for these changes being:โฃ
1๏ธโƒฃ By the age of 25, our bodies stop producing collagen and it begins to lose its ability to respond to physical changes from aging and the sun. You begin losing about 1-2%/yearโฃ
2๏ธโƒฃ A decrease in our cellular turnover cycle. Once you hit puberty itโ€™s typically around 28 days. That process slows down more and and more as we age (this can depend on genetics, environment, lifestyle, etc.)
โฃ
Many men and women didnโ€™t have the luxury that we now do with all this information about skincare. They (or if this is you) simply didnโ€™t know better. Not your fault. โฃ

TIPS for ๐—ฃ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—ฉ๐—˜๐—ก๐—ง๐—œ๐—ข๐—ก (at any age):โคต๏ธ
1. SPF to protect yourself from the biggest culprit of aging which is UVA rays โฃ
2. Antioxidant serums/Vitamin C to protect your skin from free radicals and sun damageโฃ
3. Exfoliation to speed up cell renewal processโฃ
4. Retinol which is a vitamin A derivative that has very effective anti-aging benefits โฃ

To my young clients who tell me their friends or parents think theyโ€™re silly and too young to spend money on products and facials... good for you investing in the protection of your largest organ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝโฃ

Obsessed with this dramatic, yet still natural look ๐Ÿ˜
Sometimes I get as excited as my clients do when they see their extensions for the first time ๐Ÿ˜‚

A little Monday poem โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ2 months agoDownload
Microneedling in action ๐ŸŽฅ (the buzzing of the pen is very ASMR to me ๐Ÿ˜‚)
You can see by her facial expression that she is very comfortable even on the forehead where the skin is very thin. We are creating micro channels in the skin to allow for collagen production to help her with texture, uneven skin-tone, and pore size. 
If the fact that seeing blood scares you, it shouldnโ€™t! It has growth factors are only going to enhance the treatmentโœจ
