I'm having a really hard time getting my business off the ground. I'm temporarily working from home doing waxing and swedish massage. I want to know if there are any Estheticians that work from home and have a nice clientele built up and how they achieved it. I have a very small clientele and looking to build. My clients have told their friends and quite some time ago. I had one new client last week that was told about me probably almost a year ago. How long does it take to build a large… Continue

As a skin care therapist, I’m constantly reading labels. I read product descriptions and ingredient lists like they were novels. My eyes scan over the often difficult to pronounce ingredients and my brain processes through each one of them in a “This does this, that does that… Oh what’s this?!” sort of fashion, and when I find something I’m unfamiliar with – I research it. Today I’m going to discuss an ingredient that I wasn’t very familiar with until I began working with… Continue

It is now known through direct clinical examination that the key to longevity, youth and health is found at the cellular level. Cellular research has demonstrated that aging is more than skin deep, it involves internal, external, and emotional factors.
So, eat well, live well, and be well.

Great looking skin is smooth, radiant, glowing, firm, unlined and "poreless". The key to achieving this is prevention and early intervention. Skin aging can begin as early as age 25.

Double cleansing every evening has been a staple in Asian skincare for years and… Continue
