That's right, all it takes is a customized skin care regimen, consistency and 10 minutes a day to improve the condition of your skin.

Come visit your favorite esthetician at Brow to Toe Waxing and Skin Care Studio and I will customize a regimen to fit your skin condition but most importantly your lifestyle.  For example, are you a minimalist when it comes to skin care, do you make midday visits to the gym, or are you constantly on the go?  What ever it is, I can get you off to a great start. Now that I have told you what I can do for you,  let me share my daily skin care routine.   You will see just how easy it is to implement a routine into into your busy schedule.

My Morning Skin Care Routine

First off, let me start off by letting you know that I am NOT a morning person; I literally snooze at least 30 minutes each morning.  I typically give myself 25 minutes to get ready and make it downstairs for breakfast; here is what I get accomplished in that short time:

6:40-7:15 Snooze Queen

7:15- I hit the ground running, like I did back in my Marine Corps days.  The first thing I do is go downstairs and drink my collagen shot and one glass of water.  Then back to the shower, this is where the skin care magic happens.   I spend one minute cleansing my face while the conditioner is in my hair.  Then I rinse and continue with my shower.   On masque and exfoliant days, I follow my cleansing with the Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque which is a dual purpose product.  I remove the masque before exiting the shower. 

7:25-Apply serum and eye cream while skin is still damp. Then off to brush my teeth; this gives my skin enough time to absorb the products.  Lastly, I apply moisturizing SPF.

7:30-Do my hair, which takes less than a minute; I love having short hair.  Then I get dressed, tidy up my room and then head downstairs.  

My Evening Skin Care Routine

Evening seems to be the trickiest time for most people to do their skin care regimen.  Between family and other responsibilities, there never seems to be enough time in the evening.  

Has this ever happened to you?  You take a quick break to rest your feet, and then you wake in the same spot three hours later.  It is 1:00 am and the last thing on your mind is a skin care routine.  

Here is what works for me; I get dinner started and then make my way upstairs to do my evening routine.  It takes less then 5 min to cleanse twice, apply serum, eye cream, and moisturizer; I find that I am more consistent now that do it earlier in the evening.

Simply, LED Light Therapy is a FDA approved treatment that uses different colored lights to cause a specific reaction beneath the top layer of the skin.  Light therapy is a safe, painless, non-invasive approach to skin care that does not require any down time.  This advanced treatment can be received as a stand alone service or combined with a microdermabrasion or chemical peel to enhance results.  On the other hand, it is a great alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion during the summer months or for clients who prefer a more gentler yet effective therapy.

Pre-booking is simply reserving the date and time for your next appointment, before leaving the studio.  During your visit to Brow to Toe, you have likely heard me ask about scheduling your follow-up appointment during the check out process.  Scheduling ahead is one of the ways I try to take take additional stress off your shoulders.  If you are not accustomed to pre-booking below are the three tops reason you should consider doing so:

I hear this all the time, "It was soooo long and I was too embarrassed to come in like that".   I completely understand; however, the more the better.  Letting hair grow out before getting your first wax can be frustrating if you are  used to shaving or trimming a few times a week.  Unfortunately, wax will not pick up hair that is too short.  At Brow to Toe Waxing and Skin Care Studio,  the esthetician has found the session is less painful and that clients get better results when the hair is 1/3 to 1/2 inch long.   With that being said, leave the trimming to us!  

A complimentary trim will be provided with all first time waxing services if needed.  Your esthetician will trim before the waxing service in order to:

  • Increase client comfort
  • Inspect the skin for any contraindications
  • Identify the direction of hair growth
  • Ensure the hair is properly embedded in the wax which prevents breakage just above or below the surface
Thinking of including waxing in your grooming routine?  If so,  give us a call, we can do a short phone consultation to determine an ideal day to schedule your session.  You may also take advantage of our online booking system, but keep in mind you will need to reserve your appointment 3 weeks after your last shave or trim.

I know you are thinking, "Great, another rule!"  I promise the 1:61 rule is one that you will want/need to follow in order to improve your skin condition.  We have all been told to perform our skin care routine twice a day which equals 62 times a month.  So, what is this rule?

1 - the number of times you should visit an esthetician for treatments
