Spring has sprung!

Published on October 18, 2019 by

Ahhh, the sun is shining and the air is FINALLY warm and dry (at least for the moment). Days like this make me feel energized. I want to get outside for a walk, eat a crisp salad, and take good care of myself. Over the course of the winter, and New England’s poor excuse for […]

Does sleeping with makeup on really matter?

Published on July 20, 2018 by

We’ve all heard it before……you shouldn’t sleep with your makeup on. But does it really matter? Look, I know you’re tired. To be totally honest, I’m tired too. Sometimes SOOOOO tired. We work hard and we all have busy lives. Jobs, spouses, volunteer commitments, kids, pets, working out, we’re constantly on the go. It makes […]

LED Therapy – my new obsession!!

Published on June 29, 2018 by

After recently adding LED to our treatment menu, I’ve had lots of questions about what it is and what it does. The end note is that it’s so good I’m fairly obsessed! Ok, now for the actual info. What is LED therapy? LED stands for light emitting diode (because you were dying to know, right?). […]

Summer Essentials

Published on June 6, 2018 by

It’s almost here……summer. I love summer. In New England it’s all too short a season, but I treasure every last moment. Food fresh off the grill, late sunsets, flowers in bloom, that smoky smell in my hair after sitting around our fire pit in the evening, and so much more. I love it all. With […]

Unlocking the Makeup Mystery

Published on December 13, 2017 by

I run into women day after day who tell me that they don’t wear any makeup. My question for them, which often is followed by a large moment of silence, is always, “Can I ask why you don’t wear any makeup?” Am I rude? Nosey? NO! I ask for a very specific reason. There’s no […]

Routines, gadgets, gizmos, and treatments…….who really needs them anyway?

Published on December 7, 2017 by

I hear over and over from people (especially women over 35) the same things. “I don’t have time to use a bunch of products”, or “nothing makes a difference with my skin”, or even better, “I just splash water at my face and it looks great!” So, we’re all friends here, right?!? Good! Any friend […]

Skin Care Wardrobing

Published on December 2, 2017 by

Each time I have an initial meeting with someone, I ask certain questions. Among those questions are things like, “how many glasses of water do you drink each day?”, and “do you apply sunscreen daily?” It’s funny, because each time I rattle off my questions there is at LEAST one that makes the person sitting […]

Published on October 27, 2017 by

Ok friends, we need to talk. I’m concerned about you. Over and over I hear you say that you have no time for you. I also hear you saying that you feel and look tired and that your “age is catching up with you”. We need to stop the hamster wheel! The road to feeling […]
