What’s your recipe for bringing in a new team member? I am proud to say that I have spent nearly 30 years in business as a single, female owner in New York City. I have graduated thousands of aestheticians and I owe my success to my team of employees who have helped me throughout the years. Our recipe is to make every student feel welcomed in our small private school. Students know that my door is always open.
What is your skin care ritual? I never go to bed wearing eye makeup. No matter how tired I am, I always use an eye makeup remover. The reason is that this specialized product is made to dissolve color pigments in the shadows and loosen mascara. Using a facial cleanser to rub off eye makeup can cause irritation and, even worse, you can run the risk of getting ingredients like glycolic acid in your eyes.
It is not a secret. Tanning does not do a body good. But truth be told, many of us still envy the look of the beach bronzed sun goddess. Oh, that golden glow. Being an expert in aesthetics, I know spending countless hours worshiping the sun is like asking the sun gods to hurry up and turn you into a prune. While dried-out plums may do wonderful things for your digestive system, it is not a look many of us can pull off.
