Take 15% off my book Getting Clear: Everything you need to know to cure acne quickly, easily, and naturally Typically, chronic acne sufferers have tried it all with little to no long-term success. There are literally thousands of acne skincare products and procedures that promise to clear your skin. Acne advice is everywhere from department stores, Internet, television, magazines, and your best friend, all claiming their way is the solution. You would think acne would be decreasing with all of this expert advice. Instead, acne is on the rise globally. As more countries have become Westernized, the incidence of acne has increased exponentially. The American Academy of Dermatology estimates 50 million Americans suffer from acne. Fifty percent of adult women and 25 percent of adult men have some form of acne. Inflammation, The Real Culprit I am an aesthetician with decades of experience in my field.

Either way, this information will help you get to the bottom of your [...]
Detox Your Body For Healthy, Glowing Skin! Do you want to have beautiful, healthy, glowing skin? Skin that is smooth, clear of blemishes and even in color? Here's the truth... First, you have to accept there is a no magic pill. Second, it takes making the appointment ahead of time so it actually happens. If you want beautiful healthy skin, it takes a little dedication like getting in for regular treatments as best as possible, using the right products, and most importantly a healthy diet and lifestyle. Beautiful skin comes mostly from the inside. (Genetics is only a small part of the puzzle...bummer!) So, HOW do we do this? For starters, eating nutritious foods, staying hydrated, getting good rest, reducing stress and ELIMINATING TOXINS! It doesn't matter if you have acne, hyperpigmentation, or wrinkles, eliminating toxins improves all skin issues and helps us age slower (think less wrinkles & sagging)! Who doesn't want that? It is never too late to get started! Eliminating toxins is the first step in detoxifying your body and creating healthy beautiful skin. Exposure to toxins is everywhere - in the air, water, soil, food and consumer products. Environmental toxins are both man-made and naturally occurring chemicals that [...]
THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE AND SO IS The Celebrity Skin annual TOY DRIVE! It is already that time of the year again, The Holidays. To me, this time of year represents gratitude and the spirit of giving. Not that we need a time of year to be generous or thankful, however it is certainly worthy of its own holiday! This year, more than 9,000 children are in foster care in the state of Arizona, and are spending their holiday season away from their family or have no family at all. Many of these children will have no tree, no gifts and no holiday traditions to celebrate. Poverty is one thing, but not having family is a tragedy. How Can I Help? There is a way YOU can help by donating an unwrapped toy, gift or gift card (for children between infancy and 17) to the Arizona's Children Association's Gifts of Hope program. Take advantage of our amazing Holiday Specials by bringing an unwrapped toy, gift, or gift card to your appointment from November 15, 2021 - December 15th, 2021! Many of you may not know this, but Jennifer was a [...]

Did You Know 90% of Skin Care Ingredients Have Unknown Safety? According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), 90% of cosmetics and skin care ingredients have not been evaluated for safely by the FDA or any other institution. The average person lathers, rubs and/or sprays 10 different skin care products on his or her body every day (treehugger.com). Our skin absorbs what we put on it, upwards of 130 different chemicals each day. And this does not include the chemicals we eat, drink, breathe or cleanse with! Cosmetics companies and the FDA maintain that these chemicals are safe, and many of them are when used in small doses. However, it does not account for the small, multiple daily exposure to these chemicals that all add up each month and year to create all kinds of health problems. Since 2009, The European Union (EU) has banned 1,328 chemicals from use in cosmetics. As of 2018, the United States had only banned 30. This is a huge contrast and needs to be considered when buying cosmetics, personal care items and sunscreen. ESPECIALLY SUNSCREEN! An article written by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) stated: “The Food and Drug Administration has not reviewed [...]
Beautiful healthy skin doesn’t happen by luck! Let's cover this month's top 3 tips to beautiful, healthy skin: Anti-inflammatory diet. It all starts with a healthy anti-inflammatory, plant-based (think 80/20) non-processed, organic diet. It really is important to avoid or limit sugar, refined carbohydrates, processed meat, and alcohol as much as possible - particularly if you suffer from acne. A consistent skincare regimen. It is my opinion that 99% of the population is doing nothing or too much of the wrong thing with their skin. Reading reviews on Google or Amazon and buying products that may or may not work with your individual skins’ needs is like representing yourself in court because you have watched a bunch of John Grisham or Michael Connelly (Lincoln Lawyer is my personal favorite) movies! In addition, mixing products blindly often leaves you unsure of which product is actually working or which one may be causing problems. The combination and strength of products and their active ingredients has everything to do with your skin’s success. Regular clinical skincare treatments. What is considered a “regular" routine? Every 4-6 weeks in a perfect world. If you have active acne, maybe every 3 weeks until you get [...]
