NOTE: This is the second part of a two-part series by Jenn of The Body Type Stylist. She is sharing her experiences with our Esthetics Department: Facials, products and more on her quest to take control of her skin care regime! Here is an excerpt of her post and a link to the full text.
My skin has changed over the past few years! Can you relate? I’m in my 30’s now and have two girls. I feel like I woke up at the beginning of this year and saw a totally different face in the mirror. Why is that???? I decided I needed to get help with my skin and figure out how to improve it. Today I am sharing how to improve your skin in your 30’s & 40’s in case you are in the same boat as me.
I enlisted the help of Luxe Salon at the beginning of the year and they have helped me get a good sense of what goals I should have for my skin, you can read more about that here. I went back to Krista for my second monthly facial and she was so proud of me. I was happy to report that I had been taking care of my skin!!! Last month she shared that taking care of my skin was like going to the gym. Nothing would change if I didn’t do anything about it. Dreaming about it sure didn’t solve anything. I committed to washing my face at night and getting rid of all the makeup and dirt. I was surprised myself by actually do it.
I can’t stress enough how vital it was for me to partner with an expert. I am great at figuring out my clothing and I can usually do my own makeup too. But skin care was a whole different ball game for me. I needed Krista to help me figure out how to improve your skin in your 30’s & 40’s. She was happy to help and educated me on so many things that factor into our skin, like hard water, sun exposure & dry heat. I combat all these things here in Arizona.
Krista was happy to see that my hormones were starting to regulate and I wasn’t having as many break outs. The products she had me using were starting to work!! Krista decided it was time to start a more aggressive treatment plan. I was happy about that. Being patient isn’t something I excel at and I love to see results immediately. Krista gave me a reality check and told me it’s a marathon, not a sprint.
