In 2020, I wrote a blog post about my favorite sunscreens. Today I want to provide a roundup of new sunscreens I’ve tried in the last two years and give you an updated list of my favorites in the hopes it helps you find a sunscreen you’ll enjoy wearing. I’m only listing products I liked and not everything I trialed to keep this short and sweet.
Welcome to our final part of the Finding Your Esthetician blog series. The first two parts dealt with how to find a facialist and then having a productive consultation with them. At this point, you have (hopefully) found a professional you like and are ready to trust with your face. We will move into how to cultivate a strong and productive connection with your esthetician.
Finding an esthetician who is local to you, exceptionally trained, and an excellent fit for you and your skin is no easy task. Word of mouth is one of the best recommendations you can get but it isn’t always that easy. In my next few posts, I’m going to tell you how to help create that match made in heaven between your skin and your skin specialist.
Every client I see at my studio fills out a consultation form. Among other things, it asks about any concerns they have with their skin. I’ve noticed a common trend of clients (almost exclusively women) writing the word “acne” under this question. But once I take a closer look at their skin under my mag lamp, acne is very rarely what I see.
This proves there is a disconnect in how we view our skin vs how we’ve been educated about our skin. Today I’m going to explain what acne is, the difference between acne and breakouts, and how this requires a shift in our approach to our skin.
