Love Your Facials and Manicures, but Concerned about Sanitation?

Sanitation is not an option, it is a must.

Prior to obtaining my Masters in Esthetics/Oncology Certification, and pursuing my Naturopathic degree, I was OSHA Compliance Manager in dental and medical practices for almost twenty years. That education and training provided me great insight into the importance of maintaining proper sanitation, and also a great deal of concern for the well-being of everyone when these standards are not maintained.

North Carolina, as well as most other states, license and regulate spas (skin & nails), and hair salons. They are given an alphabetical grade and...

So, What Is Wrong With Petroleum Jelly?

So, What Is Wrong With Petroleum Jelly?

 

The average woman eats 6 - 9 pounds of lipstick in a lifetime;

That’s not including lip balms.

Petrolatum’s only listed concern is possible contamination from polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). PAHs are common contaminants in petrolatum. FDA restricts petrolatum in food to no more than 10 parts per million, and requires petrolatum used in food packaging or drugs to meet impurity restrictions for PAHs. PAHs are linked to cancer (by 10 sources, including the EPA), reproductive/developmental toxicity (by the EPA’s Toxics...

Oxygen Treatments & Oxygen Products - Don't Waste Your Money

Oxygen Treatments vs. Oxygen Products

First I should point out there is a big difference between oxygen facials and products that claim to be infused with oxygen – these are two completely different animals and I will address each separately. In a FutureDerm interview with Dr. Leslie Baumann she stated that “many active ingredients that are used as buzz words in skin care cannot penetrate the skin, leaving them useless, for instance: Oxygen, Stem Cells, ...”. Dr. Ellen Marmur of Mount Sinai Medical Center goes on to say that: “Of all the amazing things the skin can do,...

What is Exfoliation? Who Needs It? What are the Options? What Works? Is it SAFE?

Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface referred to as the epidermis.

You may not realize it, but all throughout the day you are shedding dead skin cells. These cells come off in small enough sections that you rarely notice them. When the body does not shed skin quickly enough, it can trap oils on the surface of your skin, and cause other problems. To facilitate this natural process, you may need to exfoliate your skin to encourage the removal of these dead cells.  Simply put, this is accomplished through...

Are You a Vendor's Protocol or an Individual?

Spas generate a LOT of income through selling you, the client all kinds of over-priced, and possibly some unnecessary products. Many of these products used on you in the spa can be purchased over the counter (OTC), too. Even at Sears! Vendors constantly promote their over-sized product lines to estheticians and spas, in hopes you will purchase the WHOLE package/product line. Lots of clients impulse buy as well, and/or feel pressured to do so by the esthetician. Skinplicity is DIFFERENT. I am a holistic practitioner who uses specifically chosen organic and chemically 'clean' product lines, that I myself extensively research...

Hyperpigmentation - You Probably Have Some...

Pigmentation is what gives the skin its color. Hyper-pigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. When a person is healthy, his or her skin will appear uniform in color. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin. Exposure to sunlight is a major cause of hyperpigmentaion, and will darken already hyperpigmented areas. In the case of illness or injury, the person's skin may change color, becoming darker (hyperpigmentation) or lighter (hypopigmentation). Now, you...

WHY I CUSTOM BLEND MOST ALL MY SKINCARE PRODUCTS FOR YOU. Today’s example: Vitamin C Serums

Why be sold a high-priced product designed to maximize the average day spa’s bottom line?
Do you know what that long laundry list of chemicals are on the label of your exorbitantly priced skincare products? Do you know the percentages of the ACTIVE ingredients? Did you know a lot of those chemicals are in there just to make it “prettier” and have more “eye-appeal”? How about those artificial colors, petroleum based lubricants, lab-created carcinogenic fragrances, and hormone-disrupting preservatives? What about the freshness? What about the pH? Did you know “oil-free” is not oil/grease/fat-free? I custom blend my products because...
