I love to help people look and feel their best and to help them select products that are best for keeping their skin healthy. I think of it as a privilege when a client comes to me for a service or advice. Although my favorite service to perform are facials, I also really enjoy all types of waxing, microdermabrasion services and lash and brow tints.
