There's a strange phenomenon that I can't explain. Many clients won't wear their sunscreen or moisturizer when coming to see me for a facial. When I ask why, they say "because I'm coming to see you", knowing that I'll certainly apply sunscreen or moisturizer after a treatment. No big deal you say? Here's the problem...
Burning rays - You're unprotected from burning rays of the sun on your trip over to see me. Why risk wrinkles and sun spots that you're paying me good money to get rid of? Even a few minutes can cause a burn, especially if you're out during 10am to 3pm.
Inconclusive Skin Assessment
One of the first things I do is assess your skin. This is the only way to do a proper facial, because your skin's needs may change from time to time. Cookie cutter facials are not in your best interest. Here are the things that I check;
Hydration - I'm looking for your skin's current health, of which hydration level is a crucial element. Proper hydration protects collagen and elastin, gives skin a plump, healthy look that minimizes wrinkles, and promotes clearer, glowing skin by allowing skin to self-exfoliate using natural enzymes found within the skin. proper hydration keeps the natural enzymes in the skin moist, therefore live and able to do their job.
Dehydration causes - Dehydration is defined as a lack of water in your skin. Since I work holistically, I'll want to know why this is an issue for you, because correcting it is important for skin your skin to look its best. Some things I'll be asking you about are tanning or sun/windburn; if your health has changed or if you're taking a new medication; peri-menopausal symptoms; diet changes, too much partying or travel.
Correct Product & Correct Application - If your dehydration is not a result of a change in lifestyle or health, then it may be from inadequate moisturizing. Either the product is not right, the change of season has changed your needs, or your application technique needs to be altered.
So for your own protection, and the best possible facial and skin care advise, always wear your sunscreen. I'm here to help, so if you have any questions, feel free to contact me at Calm, 917-596-9535 or firstname.lastname@example.org
