What got you started in the spa, salon or wellness industry? When was this?
I had an interest in skin care from a young age. I have dry, sensitive skin and growing up in the arid climate of Colorado I suffered from chapped skin and eczema. I moved to Maui in 95 and started soaking up a lot of sun, a few years later I had terrible hyper pigmentation that I couldn’t get rid of. I started seeing an esthetician, at every appointment I would ask her a million questions about skin care, one day she told me ‘ you should become an esthetician, you would love this job’. I did and she was right, I love my job!
Please give me one fitness tip:
What is your personal favorite spa or salon therapy and where and when you indulge in it.
Paragon Salon’s MicroSweep Transdermal DNA treatment is my new favorite. I like to get this treatment done once a month. It’s an amazing anti-aging treatment for all skin types.
Best skin advice, spa or salon treatment and fave product for a 20 something:
Make the daily application of moisturizing SPF a habit we, we love Cell Renewal Systems SPF 30 Moisturizing Day Cream. The sun will age you quicker than age itself, trust me! You will thank me later.
Best skin advice, spa or salon treatment and fave product for a 30 (the new 20):
Start using powerful anti aging products now. Vitamin C is a great start for the 30-something’s.
Best skin advice, spa or salon treatment and fave product for a 40 something (I know we stopped counting a decade ago):
Schedule regular facials and facial treatments to deeply infuse the skin with moisture and anti aging serums.
Best skin advice, spa or salon treatment and fave product for a 50 and up:
High strength Glycolic Resurfacing Peels can really help turn the clock back. Beta Cream | Night Renewal by CRS is a substantial cream that protects and nourishes dry, mature, and freshly resurfaced skin. The high concentration of Vitamin A helps stimulate the growth and renewal of skin cells, increases elasticity, firmness and improves the condition of skin while protecting against free-radical damage.
Please name your most popular retail item and what it does.
Retinol Treatment Serum and Multi Peptide Serum. We suggest using these together, they work synergistically to increase elastin fibers and collagen in the skin, because one cannot exist without the other. They work!
