After being in the health & beauty industry for over 3 decades I've seen my share of skincare fads come and go.
Growing up I was dealing with acne, oily skin with clogged pores. I doused my skin with strong alcohol based products and scrubbed my face with harsh exfoliants. I used clay based masks daily to absorb the oil hoping to clean my clogged pores. You name it I probably tried it. Well that was over 40 years ago! I truly believe the masks really helped save my skin.
I was always interested in skincare and spent many years before finally finding a esthetician program. That was in 1992. I had excellent training and even took many advanced training classes. Over the years I searched for a nutrition program but most were only diet meal based. Eventually I found the education I was looking for and was hungry for more information. I continued my education after getting certified as a Clinical Nutritionist (CCN), a Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP) and then as a Certified Naturopathic Doctor.(ND)
After being introduced to 302Skincare over 10 yrs ago I've seen incredible results with my skin from over exfoliation and stimulation caused by chemical peels, micro-needling or microdermabrasion treatments. As a licensed esthetician we our trained to treat the skin on the outside. As also a healthcare practitioner I help to heal the skin from within. Acne doesn't happen overnight though it seems we get a breakout the very next day. We treat acne topically but not from the source. Harsh topical products leave the skin red, dry, and irritated which only give a temporary quick fix. Toxic oral medications can heal acne but with a price.
Getting to the root cause of your skin health issues whether you have a gut dysfunction or hormone imbalance I work with my clients to put their best skin forward.
