As a skin care professional we are educated on the workings of the skin, the anatomy of the skin, and each individual layer and how it works, pore structure,skin types and the inner workings of the skin. We are also highly educated in skin care chemistry. We understand, molecular structure, absorption, ingredients, composition and combining of ingredients and we know how and why our products are going to give you the results you are looking to achieve. We are trained to recognize skin conditions, diseases and disorders and early warning skins of skin cancer.
We are also trained in nutrition. YES what you eat, can tell us a lot about your skin. Feeding your skin is internal (proper diet) and External (product assisted).
Trusted professionals will partner with like minded professionals such as Nutritionists, Naturopathic Dr.'s, Medical professionals, Dermatologists and Specialists. If we cant help you we armed with information and direction of people who can.
Our first concern is the health and wellness of your skin and your well being. Not meeting sales quotas, not winning contests for selling the most of the "new products" and not for building our chains in direct marketing.
We are trained first in the workings of the skin and the how and why you are experiencing the issues that you maybe experiencing.
Of course I offer product in my spa to retail but I can promise you I have spent hours in education seminars, attending workshops and meeting education requirements insisted upon in my industry and those of spa partners I choose to work with. We are educated on this line, how it is created, what is in it, what it is going to do for you and WHY!
As a Facial Therapy Specialist I have traveled North America and Europe seeking the best education from industry leaders, Nutritionists, and Physicians and I pride myself in choosing only the best in education and in product to offer clients.
I have spent the last 15 years of my career gaining knowledge to better educate myself, educate my clients, train and inspire other professionals in an industry I love.
This is why I suggest you visit a professional in a professional and private environment. If you are not in my area and you are looking for a trusted professional email me and I will see what I can do with my Network of professionals to recommend someone in your area.
I could go on and on in this blog as to why but all I ask you is that you take your own health into your own hands and seek what is best for yourself. Ask questions, read ingredients, and treat your skin and yourself as should be treated. After all our skin is our largest organ of the body.
