Such satisfaction when you hear words like this:
“Tamara is not only sweet, fun & enjoyable to be around, but she just happens to be the BEST esthetician around! I am Miss California 2016 and starting working with Tamara my first week on the job. As Miss California, I am kept busy with a jam packed schedule. Days can be very exhausting and I find myself lacking sleep, therefore say hello to dark circles and puffy eyes! Tamara and the help of the DMK products she uses, makes sure that I am always looking fresh and ready to conquer the day. In my preparation for Miss America, Tamara is making my skin looking the best it has EVER been!! I cannot wait to show America how my skin glows because of Tamara’s work. I LOVE Tamara! She can conquer any skin concern you have, or she can help you radiate confidence and have the perfect glow 🙂
I highly recommend Tamara’s skin care services!” – Jessa Carmack.

There’s more to cleansing your face than you perhaps thought. Here’s some do’s and don’ts:
Remove makeup before cleansing. My preferred method is to 1. rinse with tepid water, tissue off. 2. Apply a facial cleanser dry and work it around thoroughly, rinse off. 3. Second application of facial cleanser, work around thoroughly, rinse, pat dry. Makeup on your towel – you’re not clean!
Don’t use bar soap. It’s too alkaline to use on acid based skin. Bar soap will dry and inflame the skin.
Don’t use cleansing sheets that contain alcohol.
Everyone has unique skin care needs that change according to season, time of life, and personal goals. The key is to finding at home skin care products that suit both your climate and age. For that you need a trained skin care professional (esthetician)
Try different systems; mix and match,but don’t settle. If you don’t see a benefit in a month, change. You should be happy with your home skin care and with the way your face looks. There is not be one magic bullet for everyone, but there are some rules of thumb.
Cleansers come in different shapes, sizes, formulations, and strengths. Some products can strip the skin of natural oils while others don’t scratch the surface of makeup, oil, and pollution build-up. As a rule, the longer you leave a cleanser on, the more it will do. If you have sensitive skin, splash your face with water, lather, and rinse. For a concentrated clean, let the lather linger.
When you exfoliate, find a median between frequency and ferocity. Don’t over-do it. Exfoliation occurs with washcloths, toners, and scrubs. A common mistake made at home is over-scrubbing, which leads to dry, irritated and even inflamed skin. Rule of thumb – take it easy.
Masks are described as great home remedies, but they’re not for everyone,they can be drying or harsh.
Generally, I suggest exfoliating three times a week and masking twice a week in-between facials. Those with acne and sensitive skin should not be using anything abrasive and always always use mild, gentle products like surface peel masks that slough off after they have dried on the skin.
