Y’all! I have been missing out on life!! Dermaplaning is life changing! I seriously haven’t had a facial since Christmas 2007 – eek! I have always had sinus issues and really hate breaking in steam, it’s suffocating. So since then, I have passed on all facials. So silly…
Blondies The Beauty Shop reached out about a complimentary facial and blowout and I was stoked… for the blowout. A facial? Meh… However, it was actually perfect timing. I have been loving my Pangea Organics and been breakout free for months until lots of traveling and overindulging over the holidays had brought to life this huge bump on the side of my nose. Not a pimple a bump! The ones that really hurt. So I decided it was finally time so I booked an appointment and I am so happy I did it.
Reviewing My Skin
Stephanie was my asteticious and she practices what she preaches her skin is flawless. I let her know up front it had been years since my last facial so I was open to any treatment and I wanted to learn everything! Lucky for me, all of Stephanie facials are custom to her client. She first washes your face then examins your skin and ask questions about your current skin care regimen any medical history and then decides on a plan of action.
Dermaplane & Exfoliation
Stephanie suggests we start with Dermaplane, and well Dermaplane is my new bestie. Dermaplane is a manual exfoliation technique where the aesthetician scrapes the skin with a medical grade knife removing all of the dead skin and little hairs all over your face. The pic below is my dead skin – so gross – but oh so satisfying. Why? Your skin needs a good shed! After Dermaplane your skin is more receptive to all the products you put on your face plus its smooths you out for all the make up your going to put on.
