It rained, it snowed and the sun finally shined. It was a crazy busy but fun time.
The International Beauty Show and the Esthetics Cosmetics and SPA Conference were great!
The class I taught went well.
The attendees of beauty pros and beauty business owners came from all over the world! I love meeting people from all over the 🌎 globe. So grateful to the smiling faces eager to learn in my classroom for Advanced Workshops.
The show floor bustled with happy 😊 shoppers! They were stocking up and exploring products and beauty supplies and equipment for their beauty practice or spa or salon business.
COVID put a kink in our lives and travel plans for work and play but it looks like New York is coming back! Slowly but surely.
I discovered a skin care place on Instagram in the town I live in and wanted to get a facial.
I usually get my facials all over when I travel in and out of the states. Some people tour museums I tour and enjoy spas and different cultures for beauty,customs and food. I so LONGED for one. I have not had a facial since days before the pandemic arrived. I chose this facial place not from reviews but because of the name Happy Face Skin Care. How cute! And since happiness is my happy place as I choose the sunny 🌞 side of life I decided this is where I wanted to go.
I do have a daily beauty and skincare regime and also give myself at home facials but they are NOT the same as seeing a PRO. If you’ve gone for facials you know what i mean.
Once I arrived and got cozy in the esthetician and owners facial bed I was told that by her that facials were TREATMENT based facials not perse relaxing spa type facials.
I never went to a spa that did that. She examined my skin a bit and got to cleansing and double cleansing and made sure my skin was very very clean.
She prepped my skin meticulously. She asked me questions of a personal nature and saw I was open to chatting and not falling asleep during the facial. Good thing to know a true beauty PRO does not kiss and tell. Your privacy and what you say in that room and your skin is very important to them. They respect your privacy.
By the way, I have never fell sleep myself but like a massage some people DO fall asleep in the middle of the treatment. This facial and place was not that type of facial. She had a nice gentle touch but the facial was not the usual facial experience you think of.
No shoulder massage. No hand and foot massage and placed in heated mittens and booties. Just an aromatic candle and her skilled hands. Because the owner had troubled skin growing up she developed a passion for skin care and decided this was the career she wanted. Angie Pablo really loves what she does and it shows!
While I know about Dermaplaning I do not do this service. Again you always want to see a PRO.
Here’s what I discovered.
Dermaplaning is safe and painless. It is a cosmetic/facial procedure that removes the top layers of your skin to hopefully reveal a brighter,smooth youthful look. The results they say last only a few weeks.
Dermaplaning does NOT remove wrinkles and years of sun damage.
You will not leave with a red inflammed face from it or any of her extractions. Sometimes the esthetician may knick your skin but that heals fast from it sort of is like when a man shaves.
Have you ever had a facial or a Dermaplaning Facial? Do tell and share your thoughts!
I liked my Dermaplaning Facial treatment and am happy I tried it. I look forward to going back to this happy calming place again.
If you have sensitive or very sensitive skin,active acne, rosacea and psoriasis it can worsen these conditions.
