Describe your medicine cabinet (a verbal shelfie)
Oil cleanser, foaming cleanser, toner, Vitamin C, Retinol, moisturizer, eye cream, lip balm…it’s pretty packed!
I had wonderful skin until my mid-20’s, and then it went nuts! My passion for fixing my own skin took me on my skincare journey.
Most concerns center around acne, pigmentation, and overall anti-aging.
More is not more…follow the instructions!
Vitamin C is such a powerful ingredient. It stimulates cellular activity, brightens the skin, and improves overall tone and texture. Vitamin C would definitely be my top pick.
The movement toward clean beauty and the growing public awareness of what ingredients they’re putting on their skin is very important to me—with education being key.
Active ingredients are so important and most clinical skincare brands publish research results, which really appeals to me.
This is what I always recommend to new clients: “Dip your toe in the pool first.” Skincare treatments can be overwhelming, and there is a lot of over-selling out there. Slow and steady is my motto.
Anyone who’s interested in learning about their skin and forming a relationship of trust with me.
I’m encouraged to see women like Isabella Rosselini and Helen Mirren age so beautifully and so publicly, and I love seeing that reflected in the media.
People. My clients' trust and partnership, in both their life and skincare journeys, brings me so much joy.
I love to mask. Whether it’s to treat a breakout or to hydrate, I keep several masks on-hand for whatever my skin needs.
I’ve been reading a day-by-day chronological bible, and I’m always more grounded when I start my day with scripture.
I have a black belt!
