have a deep rooted passion for health and wellness. My specialty is skincare and stress reduction. My philosophy on skincare is that if you are taking care of your skin you are taking care of your entire body. When providing skincare treatments and consultations I assess products used, frequency of professional treatments, types of treatments, general nutrition, exercise regimens, sleep hygiene, and stress reduction techniques used by the individual. I am an expert at providing guidance on DIY home facials that will promote a vibrant complexion and extend the results of professional skincare treatments.
