To Mask or Not To Mask? That is the Question

What a year this turned out to be! Most important I  hope my email finds you and your family safe and surviving as best as possible. When this turn of events quits turning, we all need to go out for one big happy hour to celebrate getting through. To my aesthetician friends, make sure to check out My 2 Cents Worth at the bottom of my emails for upcoming news, events, and training's.

The question of the year seems to be, "To mask or not to mask". Whether you love them or hate them, face masks are here to stay for a while. Wearing a face mask continually may become irritating to your skin. Is this happening to you? Here are a few things that you may be experiencing, and even better, here a few things that might help to give you some relief. 

Is your face mask affecting your skin?

Are you having skin irritation?: The constant friction and/or rubbing of your face mask may be casing raw or sore areas on your skin. This irritation may also look like small rash-like bumps, flaky skin, or excess dryness.

April 2020 Newsletter

If you are reading this, thank you for taking the time. I don’t know how you specifically are being impacted at this time, and I want to acknowledge wherever you are at. Emotionally, mentally, physically.. We are all experiencing something new for the first time, and it is taking its toll.

For 2020 I committed to a monthly newsletter to stay better connected to my people, and covid or not I am sending out a relatable newsletter. I have found myself struggling with words while writing this, so hopefully, my message conveys.

For me, the toughest part about most of this has been the lack of people connection and not knowing what’s in store for tomorrow. I am someone who thrives around people, routine and structures. I joke that if I am left without those things, I basically turn into a 6th grader. You get the picture.

My plan during this time is to keep my life as “normal” as possible. That is not easy, considering, I don’t even know what “normal” is right now. I do believe that if we can practice as much routine and good habit as possible, we can navigate through this situation calmer and with a little focus. (Fingers crossed)

On a very serious note, I do want to acknowledge that what is happening around us is life-altering in a number of ways for every person. Job losses, no school for our kids, self-isolation, businesses going out of business, sickness...the list can go on and on. There is zero sense of normalcy in our world right now, and it plain flat just sucks. However you are impacted, on a personal level, I want to say, I am sorry that you are going through this.

In regards to my business Serendipity Skin, I have chosen to temporarily close. The timeframe for this is undetermined, and I am rooting for sooner rather than later.

March Newsletter

Happy March everyone! In this newsletter, I am talking about cosmetic laser treatments. To my aestheticians and aesthetic practitioners who are reading, don’t forget to check out My 2 cents worth at the bottom of this email for some new info.

Cosmetic laser treatments have been around since the 90s, and as someone who has practiced cosmetic laser treatments for almost 20 years, I think I have seen it all!

The good, the bad, and the very very ugly. Check out Stephanie’s Share to see a list of laser treatments you can book with me now!

FAQs about laser hair removal:

Does it work? 100% yes. Laser hair removal works if it does at the right frequency, for the right client, if the equipment is effective and safe and you as the client have the right expectations set.

Will you be 100% hair free after? No. The ideal expectations are for the client to be 70%-90% hair free of all of the dark colored hairs in the treated area.

How many treatments will you need? Expect anywhere from 5-7 treatments at the right frequency to achieve 70-90% hair reduction in the area.

How often should you get treated? This depends on the area that is being treated. As a general rule:

Good morning,

As a small business owner, I feel a bit of responsibility to interact with you, my clients during this very unknown time.

Until further notice, I am choosing to stay open for business. I want you all to know that while we are taking extra precautions during this time, we are also taking the covid19 epidemic very seriously.

Here are the measure we are taking at Serendipity Skin during this time:

- Extensive and up to date real time and factual information to keep ourselves and clients safe. At this time, we do not see a need to close business, I am personally staying up to date with CDC and WHO websites to manage and help navigate these choices pertaining to my business and public health.

- In addition to regular and usual health and safety practices, all equipment, beds, surfaces, seating, and anything else clients come in contact with will be disinfected and sanitized between every appointment with our usual hospital grade disinfectant.

- Less is more during this time. Office supplies, products and anything unnecessary will be stored and out of sight until further notice. This will help to limit surface area for germs to be on.

- Clients will be screened for any respiratory and/or flu like symptoms prior to all appointments during this time.

- To protect our clients further, if we are having any symptoms at all of sickness during this time, we will stay home, and you may be asked to postpone your treatment. 

- As always, if you are not feeling well, we ask that you please let us know as soon as possible and reschedule your appointment. Our cancellation policy is very flexible during this time.

- Any change in these temporary policies will be communicated as they happen. If we decide to close for business, you will be contacted immediately regarding your services.

I want you all to know that, we are going through this very scary time right now alongside you. Who knows what the “right” thing to do is about any of this. Considering so many known factors and even more unknown factors, we have reached this choice in an attempt to have life run as uncompromised as possible, and not add to any “panic”.

Please take care of yourself daily, and relax as much as possible. Take the necessary precautions that are best for you, control what you can, stay informed and remember to treat others the way you might want to be treated. We will get through this.
