Microdermabrasion has become very popular treatment these days. Not only by Hollywood celebrities but by all different women around the world. I think its a great way to keep your skin looking young and help with any sun damage, acne scars, etc. Here is some useful information about microderm:

Microdermabrasion is a simple, straight forward, non-invasive procedure that revitalizes dull skin, reduces large pores, erases fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, reduces mild pigment irregularities (hyperpigmentation), stretch marks and age spots.

It is equally effective to other skin treatments (on superficial imperfections) and, most importantly, it allows you to get back to your daily routine immediately after treatment.

Microderm has become so popular because:

  • The least invasive dermatological procedure
  • More affordable than surgical skin care treatments
  • Effective on all skin types and colors (including sensitive skin and black skin)
  • Does not need anesthesia when performed at a beauty salon or physician's office (unlike micro laser peel and dermabrasion)
  • Gives the skin a healthy-looking glow

My Favorite Microderm Facial: Epicurabrasion!! 

Epircurabrasion is a subercharged combination of Microdermabrasion and the famous Epicuren Enzyme mask...this facial is by far my favorite for that deep exfoliation w/ microderm. The results are amazing and I highly recommend it! 

Alternatives to Microderm: 

Microderm Exfoliating Cream by Epicuren is an advanced microcrystal exfoliating cream that sloughs off unwanted dry and dead skin cells, leaving skin soft and smooth. 

Specifically designed for problem areas such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, pigmentation, congestion.

Use once a week only! Perfect alternative to doing Microderm and less expensive!

Sunscreen: Important everday not just in the Summer!

You've all heard it many times, WEAR YOUR SUNSCREEN...whether its been from me personally or even from your Dermatologist it is crucial to wear sunscreen on your face daily. The great thing about it being 2009 is Sunscreen is SOO much better then back in the day when our parents were putting baby oil on themselves. The most important thing is you need sunscreen on your face daily.

The good thing about the advancement in Sunscreen is there are tinted moisturizers w/ SPF, foundations w/ SPF, etc. No one likes the smell of the sunscreen we put on our bodies. Luckily there are scientists out there that have come up with sunscreens that do not smell like sunscreen.

Here is a list of my favorite sunscreens for your face:

Epicuren's Zinc Oxide SPF 20 & Epicuren's X-Treme Cream SPF 45
Eminence Organics Sun Defense Minerals
Arcona's Sunsations Mineral Makeup
MD Skincare Tinted Moisturizer
Spa Gregories Tinted Moisturizer

Trust me a lot of people don't realize that they can get sun damage just driving in their car. It doesn't matter if you're working in a office all day you still drive to and from work. Skin Cancer has seen more cases in the last few years and its time for our generation to help stop the ugly disease and hopefully one day their will be NO Skin Cancer, or cancer period.

Protect your skin...trust me I'm a beach girl and I love the sun but the more I have educated myself on the damages the sun and tanning beds do to your skin it scares me to think of the times I've been careless and NOT worn sunscreen.

So please ...for YOU and your skin...wear sunscreen daily.

Welcome to my blog!

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to my new blog...I decided it was a good idea to try something new and start a blog about what I do for a living and give all of you some great tips, websites, advice, etc for your #1 organ...YOUR SKIN.

I received my Esthetician License in December of last year, have had amazing training, worked with Burke Williams for about 6 months but came back to my favorite Spa and my Spa Family, Spa Gregories. I absolutely LOVE what I do for a living. It took me a little while to finally follow my gut and now I'm doing what I love.

I will update this blog as often as I can. I will provide some great tips, some great at home remedies you can do for your skin. Provide you with info on two of my favorite skin care lines, Arcona and Epicuren, etc.

Feel free to ask me any questions you may have!

Wishing you all a fabulous day...keep smiling, and always wear sunscreen!
