SKINCARE WITH KRISTINA

Digital Skincare Services

 

There really are good things that can come from crisis. One of those things was an idea to offer digital or online services with the hopes of serving our clients at home, and perhaps meet new friends too. With many of us practicing social distancing, I want to offer alternatives for “in-person” appointments using facetime/zoom or skype to meet. Flexibility, adaptability and creativity are skills necessary as we work together through the corona virus pandemic. In our ever changing world this online service offers the opportunity to connect over long distance and with folks who want know more about natural skincare (like how to use oil to cleanse your face), or want to work with a licensed skincare professional who can help you develop a skincare routine that is matched to your personal skincare goals. 

Skincare 101 – 50 min $65

This consult is especially helpful for men, women and teens and starts with a conversation about your skincare goal(s). Explore the basics of what skincare products are designed to do, or review the products you already have and match them to your skincare goals. Learn techniques to improve skin health and develop a cleansing protocol designed for your skin type. Based on what you want to achieve regarding your skin’s health, we will construct a morning/evening skincare routine as I guide and make recommendations aimed to reach your skincare goals. Your personalized skincare steps and consultation notes will be shared electronically following the appointment. To schedule your follow up, check out skincare 102. 


 

Skincare 102 – 30 min $50 

This is a follow up appointment based on your initial skincare 101 consult. Skin changes and adjustments to your routine may be desired. Certain skin conditions, like acne and hormonal breakouts will benefit from ongoing consultation and may require multiple steps to achieve skin goals. In our appointment we’ll review what’s working and adjust where needed. We may develop more advanced techniques for skin health, explore the abundance of natural skincare ingredients and choose what’s best for your skin type.

 

Oil Cleansing – 30 min $75, (30 ml Living libations, Best Skin Ever Oil cleanser included)

Cleansing oils contain natural solvents that are lipophilic (attracted to other oils), including sebum and the oil-like ingredients in sunscreens and make-up. The benefits of using a cleansing oil include removal of sunscreen, debris and make-up, the oils work with other cleansing agents should you choose to double cleanse, and instead stripping pH, skin remains supple and smooth. Cleanser and cleansing techniques will be selected for your skin type and condition, and we will discuss how/when to incorporate the oil cleanse into your routine. Many notice when their skin is hydrated and balanced, acne and blackheads disappear, while tone and hydration remain present. 

Dry Brushing – 30 min $60 (dry brush included)

This is a fun and interactive appointment where we will explore lymphatic drainage for improved skin health. This technique encourages the movement of toxins through the body and can brighten and tighten skin, reduce acne and breakouts, while encouraging the elimination of waste from the body. We will review the technique (a visual guide is provided) then practice it together. This is a quick, easy and fun way to improve your overall health and encourage a youthful glow in your skin.

 

In Person Skincare Services

 

 

Phyto Facial $120 (60 minutes)

The Phyto (meaning of a plant; or relating to plants) Facial takes a deeper step into customizable skincare and is inspired by the elegance of botanical ingredients and features hand blended masks and serums. This treatment begins with a selection of herbs and flowers chosen for relaxation as well as skin conditioning, and will be used with a facial steam. An additional helping of the herbs selected will be packaged for you to take home so you can extend the pleasure of your Self and skincare treatment. Following the aromatic steam, a soothing blend of cleansing oils will be applied to cleanse and penetrate pores removing impurities and increasing circulation. A skin analysis and mini consult will follow. Exfoliation by use of a treatment mask or gentle abrasion will assist in reduction of breakouts, while brightening and hydrating skin. Your treatment mask is another custom blend and an additional amount will be provided for home use. Melt into peaceful relaxation while a face serum is applied using a Kansa wand. Kansa wands are part of the Ayurvedic tradition used to detoxify and tone the skin using a tool featuring a round metal base made from bronze, copper and tin. The oil serum created for this treatment is hand blended with individual oils being selected for your skin type. Further hydration and toning with aromatic waters completes this couturier facial. And don’t forget you walk away with two customized products for your continued self (and skin) care. 

 

One of a Kind $85 (60 minutes)

The One of a Kind Facial is designed to nurture skin (and psyche) while bringing balance through hydration and exfoliation. Begin with a soothing aromatic facial cleanse, followed by a skin analysis and mini consult about skin care routine. Relax and inhale the scent of plants, herbs and flowers as your skin is toned then massaged with almond or jojoba oil. Lymphatic drainage will encourage the elimination of toxins and may be paired with gentle face cupping to increase circulation (great for break outs and softens age lines). Exfoliation techniques are matched with skin type and condition. For example rosehip seed powder may be added to your cleanser or a fruit enzyme may be applied as a mask. The skin on your scalp is included too and while a mask is hydrating your face your scalp gets treated to a calming massage. This facial service ends with moisture, balance and a glow that should leave you smiling.
