Beauty Practices of An Aesthetic Business Consultant
You know all of those memes that have been really popular lately?……The ones that poke fun at how all of us are going to turn into the not-really-ombre hair root troll, with over-grown cuticles, and (not-so-sweet) cherub looking rolls? 🤨
Well, let’s just say that while I might not actually look like that right now, I most certainly have been feeling like that. Because I’ve been home and not getting my normal aesthetic treatments, I decided to invest in a few new beauty practices. They’ve helped me feel a little more normal, and my boys haven’t been cringing as much when they wake up in the morning to see my smiling face.
I thought I would share a few of my new practices with you, just in case you need a little pick me up too.
Silk pillow cases– I feel very “extra” using these little luxuries, but if it’s going to prevent wrinkles while I am sleeping, count me in!
Jade roller– So, you do need to be a bit gentle with these and not use them every day, but they are great to help reduce submental fullness (aka double chin) and do some self-lymphatic drainage massage.
At-home treatments– I usually save masks for in-office, but since living in quarantine for sooooooo long, I’ve gotten in the habit of self-applying my hydrating and CO2 masks at home.
Hydration– Admittedly my water consumption has not been ideal lately. I found that too often I was reaching for another cup of caffeinated tea (or glass of wine in the evenings). So, I decided to change my ways, and I began filling up a big pitcher of water every day and committing to drinking it by the time I go to bed. Hydration is SO important for skin health and I want clear, plump skin!
While I am enjoying my newfound beauty routines, I can’t wait for quarantine to end here in Michigan. I do appreciate the ability to practice self-care, but I am eager to visit my fave medical spa soon!
What are your at-home aesthetic practices right now?
