This week has been.. challenging.
Just a friendly reminder, there will be an interruption in our normal schedule.
I'm off to New York for a quick training with my new job. Then back to LA and off again to Arizona for some family hangs. I'll try to put up a post for next weekend. Hopefully I make it that long.
In the meantime, lets recap all the positive stuff that happened this week!Read More
I had a request on the Channel to show some of my favorite products. So this week I'm giving you a peek at a few of my latest obsessions, from superfoods to body products. Some are fairly new to me, others are trusty staples, but all have been part of my everyday routine lately.Read More
I'm so excited to announce my recent partnership with my favorite Prickly Pear Seed Oil company, Carter and Jane! That means, all my hopes and dreams really do come true AND, you guys get a new DISCOUNT CODE! The ladies of Carter and Jane have been so incredibly generous with their offer.
When you buy a full size 1 oz bottle of The Everything Oil you get a FREE 12 mL travel size bottle (a $58 value)!! So cool! Use code ORGANIC.ESTHETICIAN to get yours!
This week I'm doing a bit of a wellness post. I ended up not posting the SPF video to YouTube last week. You can expect it this monday.
My skincare routine is a big part of my morning routine but a lot happens before I head to the bathroom to shower and wash my face in the morning. It's a routine that's constantly changing. However, a few things seem to be fairly consistent - lemon water first thing out of bed and a matcha about 45 mins after that. These two things work together from the inside out to start off my skincare routine.Read More
I don’t know what July has been like for you but we ‘ve been having a heat wave here in LA. It’s been crazy hot! 109 one day. This has mostly turned me into an inside person. I hide in my apartment with the AC set to 61 degrees. But I unfortunately have to venture out on occasion and, when I do, I slather myself in SPF. I’m sure you’re doing the same. But do you know what exactly it is you’re putting on your skin? Or even how sunscreen works for that matter? Get ready to have your mind blown!Read More
Have you ever seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding? Remember the Dad’s love of Windex? He uses it for EVERYTHING. Meet my Windex, Colloidal Silver. This week we’re talking about all the amazing benefits of Colloidal Silver.Read More
This has been a busy week and it's 5pm on Sunday and I'm only just NOW getting to writing this. I'm still sick (this cold/cough/life ruiner/flu is still hanging on, thankfully just barely), I did a lash lift training, I did an instagram takeover (so much work!), I started a new job and worked the farmer's market for my boyfriend's business, which leaves little time or energy for blogging and filming videos. But overall, life is REALLY good and I want to fill you in... PLUS, this is week twelve of my twelve week challenge! So let's start there.Read More
I hope you guys had a great week. Sadly, I’ve been SO SICK since I’ve been back from vacation. Thankfully, I had already filmed my demo for this week’s video while up in Northern California. Last week’s YouTube video was a tutorial on my Mom, who’s in her late 60’s. This week's video uses the same combination of tools on my sister-in-law, who’s in her mid 40’s.Read More
Someone left me a comment on YouTube asking to see a NuFace tutorial on an older face. You guys are all familiar by now with the micro current results I get on my 32 year old face. I thought it would be fun to show you the results of a single NuFace session on a 69 year old face! But something fun and really interesting ended up happening...Read More
Hopefully, at this point, we're all familiar with how important it is to cleanse your skin. It is the foundation upon which your entire skincare routine rests. Properly cleansed skin allows for effective absorption of skincare products like serums, toners and moisturizers.
If you're still a little fuzzy on all of the benefits, watch this video to find out why cleansing is so important.
So now that we are all on the same page, let me ask you a question. If you had the ability to cleanse your skin more effectively, optimizing your whole cleansing experience, wouldn't you go out of your way to do so? I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say, YES!
Using a cleansing device is the most effective way to cleanse your skin. It is exponentially more efficient than cleansing with hands alone, removing up to 99.5% of dirt, debris and bacteria - all of the icky stuff that accumulates on your skin through the day. But with so many different options on the market, which do you choose?
Lucky for you, your favorite organic esthetician is here to break it all down!Read More
This week is the first, of what will be a monthly addition to the blog, Ingredient Spotlight post. We'll take an in depth look at one ingredient, talk about it's benefits and then I'll show you a selection of products at varying price points that contain the ingredient. My goal is to empower all of you to better understand the ingredient list on your products and truly know what you're putting on your skin.
I recently started using The Everything Oil from Carter & Jane and was shocked by how transformative this product was to my skin. It left me instantly hydrated, glowing and with significantly less inflammation (something I'm continually battling). The Everything Oil is Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil paired with their propriety A3 Concentrate - a blend of organic Avocado oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Aloe Vera. The A3 Concentrate intensifies the amazing benefits of Prickly Pear.
I've been so impressed with this product, that I thought we'd focus on Prickly Pear Seed Oil as the star of my first ever Ingredient Spotlight.Read More
