Prior to my life as an esthetician, I was like most of you.. a client. I looked forward to my 90 minutes of “me time” every five weeks. I had a great esthetician who could read my mood…sometimes we would chat and other times I was just putty in her hands. The beginning of every treatment would begin with her asking me if there were any skin concerns since my last visit. Every time was the same…I wanted to work on my hyper-pigmentation. I’ve been a freckly sometimes splotchy character since I was a kid and I’ve always longed to have porcelain skin. My appointments were both corrective and relaxing and would always address my Dalmatian spots. (Now here’s where the BUT comes in) When we were done, my esthy never had a serious conversation with me about home care. I’ve been diligent about the SPF for many years, BUT what I really needed was something to address my freckles. Now, as an esthetician myself, I realize the importance of home care…especially when you’re doing corrective work. (any time you’re trying to improve a skin condition it’s considered corrective) It’s a powerful benefit to get in to the spa or salon for regular treatments, BUT it’s what you do everyday that really has the power to impact your skin. When your skin care specialist recommends products for you, she’s drawing you a map for the destination that you’re determined to find. Drugstore products just don’t carry the same % of active ingredients that you’ll find in your skin care salon. If budget is a concern, as it is with most of us, ask her to choose the top two products to address your skin care concern. Skin care products are not like fine wine, don’t save them for a special occasion and don’t skimp on the amount that you use, use them as directed and watch your skin transform.
