Is your skin "sensitive" to anything? This is one of the first questions you can expect when going to a new place for a facial/ skin treatment. The answer to this is surprisingly similar with almost any client. They will hem & haw over their thoughts and answer. When they come to a conclusion as to how they will respond, it usually sounds something like this... "Well I have had some sensitivity to products before. Not sure exactly what it was but it made my skin red and irritated.
As an Esthetician that offers a wide variety of services, I am often asked why someone would "do that" (any service that sounds interesting or possibly scary). And my answer is almost always the same. "Well... it depends on the person and who doesn't love feeling beautiful!" My personal passion is to help peoplefeelas beautiful as they truly are from the inside out. Some of those services happen to enhance the exterior portion of our body. Is this vain? Or is it good self care?
There are many ways that a facial can improve your skin.
Even if you have a daily skin regimen that you follow faithfully, a facial can
provide many benefits. Experts recommend that people with problematic skin book
facials at least once a month.Facial treatments in Kirkland
performed by qualified professionals, can help your skin look and feel amazing.
A facial can help clear your pores. Most dermatologists

Skin type. Let’s talk about that! I have been touching faces
for a pretty long time now and get to talk to people about their skin, what
their concerns are and how to appropriately address them. But you know what
happens eight out of ten times? They tell me what they think their skin type is
and it usually sounds like this… “Well I typically have very sensitive skin and
can’t use anything aggressive. I get red and itchy or it feels really dry.” So
then my next question usually sounds like this… “What are you sensitive to or
which products have caused those reactions?
Over the last several weeks I have been working on our Spa
Event. The theme of this event is onself-careandself-love. Now as women I think
we all can come up with several things that we know to be good for us. Some
right off the top of my head are to eat well, get enough sleep, exercise and
have quiet time. Maybe even throw in a mani/ pedi too. Right?!Easier said than done.
When I think of the things that hold me back from completing
these acts of self-care it often and quickly ends up being “their” fault.
Is your skin feeling a little hung over from the insanity of
Between the kids being home from school, all the parties
that we show up to trying to look our best, the sugary diets and those lovely
in laws that came to visit… We can feel tired, dehydrated and overwhelmed. All
of that shines through (or not) on our skin.

diligent with skin care regimen at home, I can see the effects of the season on
my forehead and around my eyes. That is where our NEW and EXCITING treatment

season many of folks are trying to get good sleep, not eat too many sweets and
still turn up looking beautiful for the next Holiday function. Just today a
dear friend reported that during her lunch break she was rushing off to buy a
new blouse for a great party tomorrow evening… Now that said, I’m pretty sure
we can all assume that there was no resting, or major investment on what
nutrients to feed her tired body from an already exhausting morning- getting
the kids up, ready, fed and off to school, sitting in traffic to get to work
and none the less, working.
The seasons have officially changed in the PNW and the rain and clouds are settling in for the long haul. The Holiday season has now rapidly approached and we are all gearing up for this busy time of year which means less sleep, more activities and less "me" time. We all still want to look our best, party hopping, eating, drinking and enjoying (or not ;) the company of our
family and friends. All the while, our bodies and skin are taking the toll.
Do you ever notice that your skin care never
quite works the same during the winter as it did during the summer?
