I had my first facial when I was 16 years old. As I walked into that room and laid down on the table I had no idea that my life was about to change forever. I left that room knowing that I had found something that I could be passionate about. Skin Care to me was fascinating. I would save my allowance for eye creams and moisturizers. I practiced giving facials to all my girlfriends, a few unsuspecting boyfriends and when I was finally old enough I went to Cosmetology school. I know not everyone has that pinnacle moment when they can say “YES! This is what I want to do for the rest of my life” and I know not everyone is as in love with their job as I am, (so I’ll try not to rub it in too much) but I am as passionate about skin care and esthetics now as I was then. I truly am living the American dream; I run my own business and am able to bring a level of care and compassion to my clients that fits my personality perfectly.
I love to educate people about skin care. So many people come to me with skin conditions that could have been prevented, if they just took a few simple steps earlier in their lives. It really is true, an ounce of prevention equals a pound of cure. So I’m hoping to share some of those tips in this blog, share a few of the things that makes being a small business owner fun (or not so fun) and occasionally have a few guest bloggers to talk about how important self care is. Whether it’s related to your skin, your mind or you whole body.
