Diminish Acne Scar Discoloration, Inflammation and Pigmentation

When I ask my clients about their skin concerns at the top of the list are pigmentation, scarring and inflammation. There are viable solutions.

In the treatment room I recommend:

  • The Illuminating Facial which combines the latest innovations in skin lightening to calm the skin and correct hyperpigmentation. or
  • the Signature Advanced Repair Facial which is rich in vitamin C, Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids and enzymes which increase cell turn over while lightening, and brightening the skin.

For at home maintenance, I recommend and sell Image Skin Care products. In fact, Image has developed an entire line devoted to calming, lightening and brightening. ILUMA™

Washing The Face

faceThere’s more to cleansing your face than you perhaps thought. Here’s some do’s and don’ts:

DO:

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’TS:

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.

What’s Your Type?

To figure out your skin type, focus on how your skin feels right after it’s washed. If it’s tight, you need a moisturizer and a creamy cleanser as opposed to a foamy one. But if your face is oily and you have large pores, there is no need for moisturizer.
If you are using the right skin care there should be no sensation or activity.

If you are oily at the end of the day, if your skin looks shiny and slick with oil accumulation on the T-zone and nose, your skin is classified as oily. Some moisturizers on the market contain hyaluronic acid, which acts as a humectant – an ingredient that helps the skin retain moisture without the use of oil. 

In addition to confusion over skin type, professionals cite misuse of products as an issue that produces skin problems. Clients are so used to wanting to feel a product on their faces, rather than know it’s penetrating and doing its job, they use too much or not the proper ones.

For daily skin care, use simple products formulated to skin type. Of course, sunscreen should be worn – without fail – year-round. It’s one product you simply cannot overuse. Leave repair work – products that focus on feeding the skin – to the evening since the sun breaks down vitamin C and glycolic treatments. And, sleeping skin chemistry is more receptive to repair.

Across the board, dermatologists emphasize that it’s never too late to focus on skin care. And while they prefer clients to start early, since prevention is best, most say the right products can slow the clock’s ticking. Listen to the experts; not the hype. Ask your skin care therapist to evaluate your skin and devise an at-home plan together. It will do you, and your skin, some good.

How Important is it to Exfoliate?

ImageExfoliating regularly is extremely important. When the natural shedding process creeps up on the pores, the dead skin cells accumulate and may cause breakouts, blackheads, dull skin, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Exfoliating a couple of times a week is recommended to prevent all of these skin conditions.

Did you know that exfoliating instantly brightens, firms and, retexturizes the skin to a baby soft feel?

Consult your skin care professional for the proper home care exfoliation for your skin.

How I Got Into This Business

I am often asked how I got into this business of helping people look and feel better. I would like to say that my career choice was the result of a well-thought-out trajectory or a mid-night dream-induced epiphany – alas, that would not be the truth.

In reality, I wandered into it. At the time (2000), I just knew that I needed to do something that was involved in helping other lives.

Friends and family felt that whatever I did it had to be hands-on, serene and tie into my desire to be self employed. One day, a friend and I went for facials. At lunch, after our facials, we looked at each other and quickly said that’s it!! All the elements were there, beauty, serenity, helping others, self-employed. Soon i was enrolled at a local community college esthetiques program

After passing the State Board examinations I was fortunate to be offered a room to rent. AfterI purchasing equipment and products, Tamara’s was born.

In this business, constant advanced education is essential so I am always learning the latest, greatest and most advanced techniques and processes. Fast-forward to 2002, I received a brochure from The Sisters of Saint Joseph offering a hands-on relaxation technique called Reiki. What a great add to skin care treatments I thought and enrolled. After seeing the initial relaxing and centering results on me and my clients, I wound up taking all courses offered all the way to becoming a Reiki master. My clients have been benefitting ever since.

My facial services have always included some sort of massage; usually feet. Whatever the massage, my clients always commented how good the massage felt. Bolstered by compliments, i enrolled in several massage classes to develop proper technique. Again, a brochure arrived in the mail. This time the brochure was from the American Academy of Reflexology. Now an opportunity to learn a quality, healing, balancing foot, hand and ear massage. More than 400 hours of training later and National Certification I give the best foot, hand and ear Reflexology treatment in town.

Many cities include Reflexology in their definition of massage. I love doing Reflexology along with my skin care services. So, i took the required courses and am now a state licensed massage practitioner as well as a state licensed esthetician.

Looking back on how this career started, what I see in common is that I pursued what I thought would fulfill and improve me therefore my service to my client’s. Learning how to offer beneficial skin care services, while centering and relieving stress in my clients. These skills bring so much relief and pleasure to others harmonized with a core desire of mine to help people feel better. It can’t get much better than that.
