Meet Your SkinStore Blog Team!

Sarah

Background: I’ve been a make-up artist, permanent make-up artist, and Esthetician for over 11 years.  My journey began with my own skin condition.  In search for answers for my condition, I fell in love with Esthetics.  I’ve been working for the last 11+ years in helping men and women look and feel their very best.

My best beauty advice or secret is that your eyes are the window to the soul and your age.  Always use eye cream!  No matter your age, eye cream will prevent, treat, and repair.

Daily Regimen: I cleanse, apply serum, moisturize and apply SPF everyday!

Skin Care Addictions: I’m obsessed with lip treatments and Hyaluronic Acid.

Persona: I am a Product Junkie, but also a Minimalist. I love to try new products, but I also don’t want to use a ton of products to achieve my skin care goals. I believe in simple beauty.

 

Holly

Background: I have been a Licensed Esthetician for the past 5 years after graduating from Paul Mitchell. I love how this career is always evolving and changing. I come to work and learn new

things everyday! Before joining the SkinStore team, I worked in spas and even had the opportunity with a Dermatologist.

My best beauty advice is… Less is more!

Daily Regimen: In the morning I use pH Advantage Glycolic Gel Cleanser, Sjal Saphir Concentrate Anti-Aging Face Oil, Dr. Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream and PCA SKIN Protecting Hydrator Broad Spectrum SPF 30. At night I use Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Cleanser, Topix Gly Sal 10-2 Pads, Sjal Saphir Concentrate Anti-Aging Face Oil, Dr. Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream and DDF Ultra Light Oil Free Moisturizing Dew.

Bonus! Here are my favorite masks: Alchimie Forever Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask, GLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD Tinglexfoliate Treatment and  Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud.

Skin Care Addictions: Eye Creams and SPF.

Persona: I would have to say that I am a recovering Product Junkie, but as I get older I am evolving into a Minimalist. When I find a product I like, I stick with it!

 

Elizabeth

Background: I have been a Licensed Esthetician since 2009.  I have treated clients in several spas with a gentle approach to skin care. I work with skin care lines that blend natural ingredients with science for superior product formulations. My philosophy is you don’t have to abuse your skin to get it to behave.

My best beauty advice: Don’t neglect your neck and décolleté. Women age the most in the décolleté area because it’s where we get the most sun.  Think of your neck and décolleté as a pedestal for your beautiful face.  The display should look just as nice as the showcase, right?

Daily Regimen: I keep it simple. Sjal Balans Deep Pore Cleanser keeps my sensitive skin soothed and minimizes pores. iS Clinical Pro-Heal Serum Advance Plus is an amazing cosmeceutical for antioxidant protection, reducing inflammation and brightening the skin. NeoStrata Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy is my fave for firming and smoothing the eye area. Topix Replenix Sheer Physical Sunscreen Cream SPF 50 protects and moisturizes. This is my daily beauty cocktail. I  also have “beauty nights” where I do a Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel and an Alchimie Forever Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask to keep my complexion glowing.

Skin Care Addictions: Dry oils!  I’m not a fan of feeling any products on my skin so dry oils have become my best friend.  They have a weightless texture and during the day I use it in place of my moisturizer. Sjal Saphir Concentrate Anti-Aging Face Oil is my absolute favorite for a healthy, radiant look.

Persona: When it comes to products, I am a Minimalist. That’s why everything I use has to have multiple benefits.  My cleanser brightens, soothes, and hydrates. My serum addresses every aging concern one can have. My SPF has antioxidant protection and enhances skin texture.  I don’t want to waste time or money on a one-trick pony. Picking these types of products makes me work smarter, not harder.

 

Jen

Background: I’ve been a Licensed Esthetician and make-up artist for over 6 years. I have taken advanced skincare techniques classes at the International Dermal Institute and received professional

make-up training from two large cosmetic companies.

My best beauty advice is to double cleanse your skin at night. The first cleanse removes all makeup, oils, and debris, the second cleanse will thoroughly cleanse the skin.

Daily Regimen: An antioxidant serum and BB cream with SPF 35 in the AM. A daily peel, night cream, and eye cream at night. Easy Peasy!

Skin Care Addictions: Serums and masks! I am constantly switching out the serums I use and I LOVE a good mask. I mask at least 3 times a week.

Persona: I am definitely a Product Junkie! I love trying new things and my regimen consists of 20 different items that I rotate.

 

Daisy

Background:  I started in the beauty industry as a make-up artist about 4 years ago, and have been a Licensed Esthetician for 2 years. My love for skincare and makeup products alike is what drove me to become a professional. I have had experience working in relaxing spas as well as medical spas. I love being able to help people feel great about their skin, as well as learn how to take care of it!

My best beauty advice is always cleanse your face nightly. Throughout the night your skin rejuvenates and repairs itself, and with daily makeup and toxins still on your skin, more damage can be caused. Of course I would always recommend completing your full night regimen, however just a cleanse is better than nothing!

Daily Regimen: I cleanse my skin, apply my favorite treatment serum and in the morning I apply a moisturizing SPF. At night, I substitute the SPF with a night cream. I also like to exfoliate 3-4 times weekly and use a mask at least once a week.

Skin Care Addictions: I love masks! I believe masking is a great way to apply a treatment to your skin and keep it looking fresh and rejuvenated. I try to mask twice weekly. I will use a stronger exfoliating or peeling mask early in the week, and about 2-3 days later I follow that up with a hydrating or revitalizing mask. If I can only get one mask in weekly, I will alternate between the two. Masks can also be great for hair and scalp as well! My hair and skin always love an at-home spa hour, or two!

Persona: I find myself to be more of a Product Junkie. With this industry always  evolving there are always new, innovative products to try. I like to alternate between different cleansers and treatments and see how various ingredients work with my skin. However, once I do find a “must-have” product, it does find a permanent home in my regimen.
