As an almost native of South Florida I am familiar with the damaging effects the sun can have on
your skin. I've been fortunate enough to travel a great deal over the years and have learned about natural products and skin care regimens from other cultures. Now I am excited to share this information and techniques with my clients. Let me show you the difference...you'll be happy with the results.
Creating my own skin care products from natural ingredients is one of my passions.
I love to customize my products to benefit each of my client's skin types using a wide range of fruits, spices and vegetables. The market for skin care products covers a wide range of skin types from babies, preteens, adolescents, adults and aging seniors. They are geared towards specific problems and promise the consumer 'amazing results'. However, no two people have the same skin type. Most have common goals to improve texture, appearance, maintain a healthy glow and reduce the signs of aging. To attain these specific goals, we all need products that are tailored for our own skin types. I mix a lot of my own natural ingredients according to my customer's problem areas, concerns and keep them on an easy maintenance program at home.
Each client is interviewed and examined. We go over their areas of concern and talk about the goals they want to achieve through a natural skin care regimen. I choose from several different fruits, vegetables and spices and blend them for each person's specific skin type. Then they leave the salon on their first visit they have an individualized 'recipe' for their maintenance program at home. I alter the recipes with each visit, as their skin improves and changes, and add or delete certain things.
I was in the food and restaurant business for the better part of my life and always enjoyed cooking, creating new recipes and sauces and I love to eat. Restaurants, clubs and the food business, in general, are a tough business here in South Florida. But that experience and background has given me a basis for formulating and customizing products and I love what I do. Becoming an esthetician has been an exciting and rewarding field for me. When a client feels and looks good because of what I have done for them and their personalized skin care program has improved their appearance it makes me want to continue this effort and create new products. I would love to have my own skin care product line one day.
