WHO, should be someone dedicated to their craft, knowledgeable on all aspects of the industry, and a talented artist.

That person is ME. I have an arsenal of experience, from Paris runway to kajal shopping in Morocco,  I have tried it all. Trained as a fine artist, I am present in an enormous playground of beauty products.  Clients’ skin are my canvas, and I need those surfaces to be well maintained in order to create beautiful faces.

WHO  you with shop makes a difference.

  • Try before you buy.  Always come in for a complementary service, facial or make-up. These are luxury items and should be experienced accordingly.
  • Always get samples to try new products at home.
  • Know that your dermatologist is selling products for a cut of the profit. They have Obagi or Dermalogica due to the convincing sales rep that came to their office and sold them the line. The doctor is NOT endorsing the product.
  • If the product does not do what it claims exchange it for one that does.
  • Befriend a professional who does not represent a particular line, one that will take the time to listen to your needs.

As a beauty stylist I can offer you the above services.  For the next month I will be offering facials and makeup lessons at NORDSTROM South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa. I do not endorse one particular line, yet I have exceptional resources to every new product that hits the market.

When you sign up to shop online for any product I feature you will always receive free samples of new products to try.

WOMAN DIES FROM SEPTIC IMPLANT

This past week on the new hit TV show “The Good Doctor” a women dies when her cheek implant becomes septic, consequently infecting her butt and breast implants. Sepsis is a life-threatening condition in which the body is fighting a severe infection that has spread via the bloodstream.  Although the show is fiction it caused me to consider a hotly discussed topic in the world of skincare – can cosmetics be absorbed into your bloodstream? 

Optimists boast that the skin is such an effective barrier that hardly anything can pass through into the deeper layers of the skin, let alone the bloodstream. Those are the girls that sleep in their eye makeup and wonder why they can’t see.  The vegans and LIVESTRONG enthusiasts claim that about 60% of chemicals in cosmetics ending up in the bloodstream or 5 pounds of cosmetics being absorbed by our bodies every year or it taking 26 seconds for cosmetics to be absorbed into the bloodstream.

The most effective products trap the anti-aging compounds, which you want to get deep into the skin, in a blend of oil and water. If a product is ‘amphiphilic’ (both oil- and water-loving) it can make it deeper into the layers of the skin (Förster et al., 2009). Suddenly those blood vessels are looking closer to potentially absorbing what we put on our skin.

This week I will examine the best and safest products to use, and let you in on special offers that will save your skin, your purse and possibly your life.

Stay tuned!
