What if I told you that the average woman wears approximately $8 worth of skincare and/or cosmetics per day, which adds up to roughly $250 a month, which becomes nearly $200,000 in a lifetime… and that statistic is a year old… and on the conservative side! I don’t know about you, but I could do a lot with $200,000!! So my question is…

So let’s start with that time you looked in the mirror and said, “Where did all these brown splotches come from?” Or, “What is all of this redness in my skin tone?” Studies have shown that discoloration and unevenness of the skin can appear more aging than wrinkles. Let’s face it, the longer we are on the planet, the more that time and the environment take it’s toll on our skin. That is just a natural progression. And let’s not forget lifestyle. Years of sun exposure, inflammatory foods, alcohol consumption and not enough hydration are key factors as to why laser treatments have sky rocketed in the last decade. Not to mention that the treatments are far less invasive than they were in years past.
DERMAPLANING… EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
Posted on October 3, 2017
Dermaplaning… it seems that the last few years the popularity of this service has become all the buzz…(because of all that fuzz) Aestheticians are jumping on board to offer the service and women are either die- hards, or extremely hesitant because of all the tales that they are hearing about it. The truth is that dermaplaning has been around for decades, but as of late, has taken on a life of its own. Bloggers are blogging about it, beauty experts are touting it and even “The Doctors” did a segment on their day time show featuring an Aesthetician and a live dermaplaning. This is hands down my most requested service and over the years I have dermaplaned over a thousand faces. So, let’s break it down. I want to explain the benefits, debunk the myths and make sure that you are informed and in safe hands before that blade moves toward your gorgeous face!

How do you define beautiful? How do you define happiness? How do you define fulfillment? In a world of airbrushed, photoshopped magazine covers, it's easy to get a little confused in the authentic meaning of these words. When young girls, and even women, today idolize and want to emulate certain realty stars, and social media queens, who are mostly famous for nothing other than their high maintenance, exterior beauty and supposedly glamorous and perfect lives, the definition of "true beauty" becomes scewed. It is easy to see how youth of today can be drawn to believing that, if only they looked like them or had their lives...everything would be great... when, in "reality", nothing could be farther from the truth. Influencers of today, big or small, have a responsibility to be real... without creating the perception of perfection at all times. My point being, beauty, happiness and the ability to seem fulfilled can easily be misconstrued, if we are only taking in to consideration what we see... if we are only exposed to the exterior.

I never would have dreamed twenty or even thirty years ago that I would be in the place that I am now. If I had to throw an arrow at my future picture back then, I would have miserably missed the mark of where I am today… but little would I have even been able to understand, at that time, I was right where I was suppose to be. As I look back over the uniquely contrasting chapters of my life, I see a beautiful collision that was necessary to bring me to this point. The little, athletic, musician, with a love for all things beautiful, went on to chase her dreams, only to detour several times, having no idea of the maneuvers that she would learn, in order to navigate… and the strength that she owned.
