Understanding your Unique SKIN by Kate Johnson

When I meet a new client, the first question I always ask is: ” If there was one thing you could change about your skin, texture or color, what would it be?”

As you read this blog, I’m sure that your answer popped up immediately in your head. In fact, I don’t know anyone who honestly looks in the mirror first thing in the mornings and says… “Yes! I’m perfect!” If that is you ….. Honey, tell me where that fountain of youth is!

I think that we all look at celebrities, see how beautiful and perfect they look and wonder what is it they use! If it works for them, it will work for us.

And of course, then, there are the covers of the “rag mags” where they show how “horrifying” celebrities look without makeup. My goodness! To be honest, when I see those, I usually think… ugh… that’s what  my white blonde eyebrows and I look like in the mornings, too. I mean come on, cut a girl some slack!!

But we are used to seeing these perfected beings, and we are told to look up to and idolize. Yes they are  (mostly) talented and, yes,  they are lucky (always) but I think that in reality, they have people on staff to tell them what to do every day….

Dont have that? Well, that’s why we are here to make you your own expert. The secret for us regular, non-celebrity beauties is knowing your skin and its habits. And I mean REALLY knowing your skin. So over the next few blogs I’ve decided to focus on skin types. Not only what we think we are but what we really are. I promise you that often these are quite different.

We will review the following types:

  • Dry skin / Dehydrated Skin
  • Oily Skin/ Acneic Skin Combination
  • Thin skin ( Rice Paper)
After that bit of education, you will know which skin type group you fit in and some of the best products that will have your skin loving you. After all, you should be in charge of your skin not your skin in charge of your life right?

So let’s explore this and take our beauty by the reigns! Because you can’t rock that fabulous red lipstick for your next event if your skin is looking less that fabulous.
