Love the skin you're in!

You often hear me say, "Your skin is your largest organ, and only 2% of the water you consume actually gets to the epidermis, because our other organs are so greedy"! 


So how do we take care of our skin? The answer is "self-care"!

We are busy…our lives are busy, we are trying to balance work, school, family, fitness, diet, social lives, etc...all important parts of our daily living, but taking care of ourselves is often more of a challenge, and taking care of our skin....well I guess that's why I'm here to help :~)

A few more thoughts to consider before we look at what to do. Most of you will wash your face daily (twice in a perfect world), I hope. Most of you shower or bathe daily too, but do you consider what products you are using on your face and body, and are they the same for each body part? Are you using specific products before, during and after shaving?  Are you applying any cream and sun protection on those body parts after?  Are you exfoliating regularly?


Taking some time for yourself in the morning and in the evening does not have to take a long time for a basic skin care routine.  You can add more time as needed for extra treatments or even alter the time of day you do your routine so you are not rushed or too tired.  You don’t have to wake up earlier to wash and or shave…bring the products in the shower with you (I recommend a fog-free mirror that you can secure inside the shower for shaving).  At night, no need to wait until you are hitting the pillow, you can wash up after dinner or after nighttime activities when you are winding down before bed.  Having your products out on the counter so you can see them helps to build a daily routine too.  Of course, knowing what to use and when to use it is important too!

Studio Update

I hope you had fun over the long weekend! We still have lots of warm summer days left and I hope you enjoyed every minute of it!

Here at the Studio, not much is changing....we are still asking you to wear your mask, use hand sanitizer and complete your self assessment on the day of your appointment. 

Plan your parking ahead as on street parking is sporadic depending on the time of day.  Macdonnell parking lot is now free for 2 hours, but space is limited.  Marketplace Parkade on Wilson St (across from City Hall) always has lots of space for only $3.

Hope House is in need of a few items for donation. So when you are going through your closet to make room for you fall and winter clothes, please keep in mind the following list.  

  • Mens t-shirts (short or long sleeved)
  • Men's hoodies
  • Men's pants (jeans or athletics)

If you can't drop the items off directly to them, you can bring them to me and I will drop them off on Sept 7.
