Carpe Diem! Love thy neighbor, Let bygones be bygones, Turn over a new leaf...
These are things I hear frequently and thank goodness I do. I need a constant reminder that nothing in this world is permanent. The only constant in life, is change and no matter how prepared I think I am, I never quite know what's going to happen next.
With life and all the experiences it has to offer, our bodies are morphed and shaped to whatever comes our way. The result, what I see in the mirror each morning and night. For example, sometimes my skin will look dull, or dehydrated with uneven texture and tone while other times it will look bright and shiny. Of course I'd rather have the latter, but it doesn't always happen every day.
Using the appropriate skincare products, eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, and receiving regular skincare treatments is what I need to do to maintain healthy, vibrant skin. And yes, I am guilty of indulging in my fair share of cookies and cake and not drinking enough water or getting enough rest. (It shows up as blemish #1, goiter #2 and dry patch #3) UGH!
Since all our life experiences reflect directly to our face, how is one to know what is best for their skin type? This is where I come in. (Here I come to save the day!) As an esthetician, I work with individuals going through the motions of life, experiencing grief, joy, falling in love and the never ending abundance of emotions. I work with each person for where they are in their life process and for what their skincare goals are.
Sometimes we all need a little TLC and a relaxing facial is great for that. What I'm interested in, is providing a results oriented treatment, while interweaving relaxation to nurture each person as a whole being. I make simple product recommendations that benefit you and are easily added into your daily routine. Each person is a whole being and I treat everyone as such.
It's time to take the love you give freely to your friends and family and turn it inward. Self love radiates to those around us and feeds harmony into the world.
Make time for self love. You are worth every moment. Your are beautiful. Know this.
In loving memory of Aaron Huff. May your spirit live on through the hearts you touched.
