Skin Remedy of the Week
Bee Pollen has so many benefits, it’s hard to focus on just one! Pollen is the food that bees collect from flowers and bring back to the hive. When collected ethically, this magical pollen can be consumed by us! Bee pollen is full of all sorts of essential proteins, lipids, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and fatty acids. Just a spoonful of bee pollen a day can prevent allergies, maintain healthy skin, prevent illness and increase energy.
So how would bee pollen help to remedy the skin?
-Free Radicals break down the skin’s natural function to keep itself healthy. These free radicals come from environmental elements-stress, pollution, etc, which cause premature aging. Bee pollen is full of antioxidants, which fight the effects of these free radicals and protect from further damage.
-More specifically, pollen contains Rutin, a bioflavonoid anti-oxidant, which supports the cardiovascular system and helps build strong capillary walls, preventing broken capillaries and creating a more even skin tone
-Nucleic acids are what make up our RNA and DNA, and bee pollen is full of it! This means maintaining healthy cells which will continue healthy cell turnover and leaving you with fresh, beautiful skin.
-The antibiotic effects of bee pollen come from the acids it possesses and reduce inflammation, which is wonderful for all sorts of skin conditions, including acne and rosacea.
-Pollen contains many enzymes, which help aid in digestion. When your digestive system is working, your body can more easily absorb all the nutrients you take in-resulting in healthy body and of course…healthy skin!
*To start, and avoid allergic reaction, take a little bit-one or two granules and build up to a tablespoon over the course of a week. It can be blended into a smoothie, your cereal, or by itself-whichever way you choose you are sure to notice a difference in your overall energy, and soon enough your skin!

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! Please see below for all the upcoming changes.
