Esthetician or Aesthetician? Pt. 5

Happppppyyyy Friiiiiiiiidaaaaaaay!
Technically it's my Thursday. But it feels like Friday... Which I can't decide if that's a good or a bad thing. All I know, is that I need a weekend... Badly.

On to the beauty tips!


Many of you have expressed concerns with acne and what kind of treatment would be good for you.


Well, how about an acne facial? haha!


To those of you with oily and/ or acne- severe or not, I suggest getting a High Frequency Treatment. I LOVE THIS FACIAL! It is by far my favorite facial! It's so much fun, I practice this every chance I get. Ok, so it can hurt. But it's totally worth it, and it doesn't hurt that badly. Plus, the benefits are amazing!


What happens (BASICALLY) is this:

There are three MAIN steps to this facial. First they'll use a galvanic current on a negative setting to turn your oil into soap! Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?! YES! OIL INTO SOAP! How awesome is that?! This process opens your pores and softens the tissue.
Second, they'll use a High Frequency Electrode. This has so many benefits I can't list them all. Some are that it drys out acne and speeds up the healing process, minimizes pores, helps the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helps with the tone of your skin, and SO much more.
Third, they'll use the Galvanic current again, only this time on a positive setting. This closes the pores back up, soothes the nerves, hardens and firms the tissue, and pushes the products used (masks, toners, etc) into the skin so you receive the full benefits of them.

Doesn't that sound wonderful?! Well, it is! So yes, if you have oily, acne, or normal skin- look into getting this treatment! It's my favorite.


Someone asked me how I suggest you clean your makeup brushes-

Answer: with shampoo. :) Your brushes should be real hair (of some kind), so shampoo is how you should wash them.

That's all I have for this week. I graduated out of Freshman this week (exciting!), so I am OFFICIALLY taking clients! If you live near me, come and get something done! It'll help me graduate! haha!


Oh, and in case you missed it, here is what I did in my fantasy makeup class last week. This is my friend Kandace who I turned into Effie Trinket from the Hunger Games! Compare to THIS picture.


It was so much fun and I'm hoping to help out with the makeup at a fashion show this weekend! Happy Friday everyone! Any fun plans?

My momma is an esthetician and i love any facials, but I haven't had the high frequency yet.... It looks pleasant enough :)

that facial sounds kinda scary but I would take the risk if it meant no more zits. Congrats on graduating. Hope you get some clients soon!

Ya know, I actually am not acne-prone at all (and consider myself very lucky!) but I do have dry skin which makes it almost impossible to wear any face foundation or powder. I look forward to reading what you have to say for us dry-skinned folks ; ]

And I am so impressed with your makeup! She looks runway-ready!!

Shalyn said...
