A Blink of an Eye

Posted on July 03, 2017 | Posted under Eye care, Skin Care Program

“Focus” a term we hear a lot of these days. When I hear the term I immediately think of our eyes and the tissue surrounding them. They are eye catching…or not…

Our eye tissue is the gate keeper to our eyes. This tissue is extremely thin in comparison to the rest of our body tissue. In fact our eye tissue is the thinnest tissue of the body, and is responsible for: protecting us from local injuries, maintaining a balance of proper tear fluid & flow, and protecting the eye from UV light absorption. These delicate tissues reach to the eye brow, and extend down to the cheek bone.

If your eyes are the windows to your soul, then your lips are a reflection of your mood.  Like our moods, our lip color choices change from day to day; they can reflect how we feel.  Are you feeling boldly businesslike, perfectly put together, deliciously sweet, glamorously ready for an evening, or naturally earthly? However your mood inspires your lip color choice, first take a good look at your canvas (your lips).


Eye Care - For Your Eyes Only

Posted on September 29, 2014

As your eyes take in the world around them, they are bombarded by the elements. Because of the delicate nature of the skin around the eyes, they are more susceptible to bags, pouches, dark circles, and wrinkled tissue than the rest of your face. If you want to turn back the hands of time, start with your eyes.

Vitamin C For Your Skin

Vitamin C for Your Skin?


By this time of the summer we all have been reminded of the hazards and effects of over exposure to UV rays. For those who may ignore these warnings, my favorite saying to them is “If your skin could speak, it would be screaming!”  Estheticians can be the first line of defense in maintaining the health of your skin. After many years of service, I have learned the signs that trigger my referral to your dermatologist.
My motto: err on the side of caution.

Building the Proper Skin Care Program

Posted on April 09, 2014 | Posted under Skin Care Program

Trying to navigate the sea of skin care in drug stores, department stores, cosmetic counters, websites or books can leave you feeling overwhelmed by the seemingly endless choices. When I started my business and entered the world of esthetics in 1995, it had not occurred to me the time it takes to build and plan the strategies for creating the proper skin care program for individual skin care needs. After all, no two skins are created...

When a woman finds a mascara that she loves, it becomes one of the most important parts of her makeup tools. Mascara is one of the first makeup items that a young lady will experiment with. When a woman finally finds that one mascara, “the love of her lash” she is likely never to part with it.

But, pay attention to this, there’s a new technology in town, and it is totally tubular and gaining...

The Quest for Better Skin: Battling Brown Spots

Posted on January 08, 2014 | Posted under Battling Brown Spots, skin conditions

Battling Brown SpotsBeauty is wasted on the young.” I can still hear my best friend’s mother utter those words as a swarm of us sixteen year olds stormed through her house, getting ready for our high school dances. I never gave it much thought, but now that I’m aging and having the same swarm of girls in our home, I’m hearing those words again, and I get it. If...
