I had the pleasure of being interviewed by my mentor Lori Crete, the Esthetician Mentor a few weeks back.
Here is the link to my Pod Cast with Lori. Just in time for my birthday.
Are you an Esthetician struggling in this Industry? You should visit my friend Lori Crete, the Esthetician Mentor and check out her many Education resources and tools. I myself have taken a few of her workshops over the years.
Clinically proven to help improve Anti-aging skin benefits.
As we age: Over time, the level of chronic inflammation and free radicals in the skin increases, which causes the collagen matrix to degrade faster than it is renewed. This results in the loss of firmness, elasticity, and the onset of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin sagging.
Acne and its scars leave a telltale sign of heartbreak. Anyone who has ever dealt with this insidious disease knows it wreaks havoc on self-esteem.
And the PIH scars (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation)? They are just an unpleasant reminder of painful days. Whether you’re dealing with an active case of acne or you want to be rid of the acne scars, consider LED therapy.
With the busy lives of most women, it’s easy to overlook a very simple and easy step for younger-looking skin, exfoliation. In fact, it’s the most overlooked step in skincare!
It’s also one of the most beneficial.
Weekly or twice weekly home exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin and unclogs pores, making them look smaller. Nice, huh? To keep their appearance small, keep them unclogged with regular exfoliation.
Just like allergies, acne is the result of a weakened immune system. Yet, western medicine is not convinced that there is a link between acne and diet. You’ll find studies that discredit it, and others that make a strong case for it.
What’s interesting is that acne is considered a Western disease. It is virtually non-existent in non-westernized societies where refined carbohydrates and sugar are rarely eaten!
Leaving moisturizer out of your routine today could lead to deeper wrinkles later on. When the skin barrier is compromised, which is what we see when it becomes dry, there's actually a low-grade chronic inflammation that occurs in the skin.
Low levels of ongoing inflammation ultimately lead to a breakdown of collagen and accelerated aging. Even if your skin type tends to be normal to oily, using a high-quality moisturizer on a regular basis can be the key to improving the way your skin looks and feels.
Coconut oil is antimicrobial and antifungal, it sounds like a dream come true for acne prone skin. But the issue lies in the composition of the oil. All natural oils are comprised of 2 acids: oleic acid and linoleic acid. Oleic acid is SUPER pore clogging and linoleic is not. Guess how high in oleic acid coconut oil is? It is one of the top dogs! No wonder it is such an issue!
Clients often ask me how they got red spots on their face, or tiny little broken veins. The answer is simple, over exposure to the sun.
Good Old Mr. Sun is very strong. And, if you aren’t careful, he has no qualms about leaving behind evidence of just how great and powerful he is! (Move over Wizard of Oz!)
Those tiny little veins around your nose, on your forehead, cheeks, eyelids, neck and upper chest are vulnerable to the sun’s rays. Too much of it and it weakens the elastic fibers in the walls, and they collapse.
Peptides are “messages” made from chains of amino acids and signal your skin to make more collagen.
One of the most popular signal peptide for cosmetic use is palmitoyl pentapeptide (Matrixyl) a neuropeptide that reduces fine lines very well. It can be found in many peptide skin care products and is quite effective in improving the appearance of fine lines and give your skin a more youthful appearance.
This is a good question. In most provinces and states, Estheticians, also Medical Estheticians, also sometimes called Facial Specialist, Skin Care Specialist, or Skin Therapist, are regulated by the State Board of Cosmetology. In Canada, only Nova Scotia has Licensed Estheticians, the rest of the country is unregulated and education is not required. Many States have websites so consumers can check to make sure their specialist is licensed. Sadly, Canada has nothing like this.
