Dearest Clients,
As many of you know by now my husband Christopher and I are expecting our first baby at the end of April. We could not be more excited about this wonderful addition to our family, but with it comes some changes for Skin Remedy.
I will be taking a few months off to spend with our new baby girl and will be back in the summer with limited hours. I have loved being able to nurture all of my clients through our personal relationships as well as with the Skin Remedy product line. I wish I could be wonder women and be at two places as once, but at this crucial time in my life I need to be at home with our new addition.
I have spent the last three years training Katie Woods and she is nothing short of a master Esthetician. Her touch and knowledge base is something to be experienced! Katie has the highest level of training with a cidesco certification. She will be stepping into my shoes as I take maternity leave as the head honcho and has been paying close attention to my direction around each one of you and your needs.
I have also recently hired Tarren Brooks, Tarren came to Skin Remedy with years of experience in the beauty industry and has gone through our rigorous training and is now taking clients. Tarren a gives the same amount of consideration to each client as Katie and myself and has studied with the Nova studio, the same training I did to learn about raw natural ingredient’s and organic skin care. She is well versed in all of our treatments and is a total doll! I feel so lucky to be able to bring you the best this industry has to offer with talented Estheticians such as Katie and Tarren!
I will also continue to bring you the Skin Remedy product line with help from our resident scientist Clayton Toon. I will miss all of you dearly as I depart from our routine visits, and thank you all for your continued support as I move into motherhood. I wish I knew exactly how long I will need to be home caring for our new baby. One thing I do know is, I love being a Esthetician, love all of you and will be back in action in no time!

Skin Remedy of the Week
*Why Sugar’s The New Wax*
Hard wax, Soft Wax, Honey Wax, Cream Wax, SUGAR!? What the heck is Sugar!? Sugar hair removal is my personal favorite for those particularly sensitive areas of the body. In comparison to wax, there are so many reasons why this form of hair removal is quickly gaining popularity. Here are a few.. Sugar paste is simply made from sugar, water and lemon and is a paste verses a wax. This paste is gently worked into the hair, against the growth, then pulled out in the same direction as the follicle with no sticks or strips necessary. Sugar pulls on the hair, not the skin, resulting in less irritation and inflammation making it wonderful for those with super sensitive skin. Not only is there less sensitivity involved, many clients also experience longer lasting results, less ingrown hairs and overtime many enjoy a permanent lack of hair growth. One of my favorite features of sugar is that it’s fully compostable, making it a service with zero waste. So, what are you waiting for!? Give us a call and try sugaring today, Mother Earth thanks you!

Skin Remedy of the Week

Clogged Pores = Wasted Product

Clean pores are key to healthy skin. Extractions are an important step to any thorough facial and at home skincare regimen. Exfoliating the excess oil, dirt and dead skin buildup enables ingredients to properly penetrate the skin instead of it acting as a barrier. This makes products much more beneficial and effective. Plus, regular cleansing and exfoliation are important in removing pollution and prevents acne bacteria buildup. Book a facial today at Skin Remedy and we can customize a skincare regimen just for you!
