Skin Care Products

After I do a fantastic treatment on my client's skin, she loves how she looks. 
And she will ask, "How long can I keep my face looking like this?" 
I tell her "It depends on what you do at home.  Do you cleanse twice a day?  Do you moisturize properly?  Do you  wear sunscreen daily?  Do you use the right products?"
The she will ask me what I recommend for her to use at home.  And, immediately she follows that with "What can I buy at the grocery/drug store?" 
I tell her that most products out there made for the skin are not harmful to the skin.  But, does she really know what she's getting when she purchases a product at a drug store or a grocery store?  There are so many brands of products.  Which one is best for her skin?  Most of the "over the counter" products are 70 to 80% water.  So, she is not getting the most out of that product and she ends up using more of that product with each application than a professional product.  Also, if she doesn't like it, it will sit on her bathroom counter or shelf. 
A professional product line is the best way to go for many reasons.  One of the reasons is you will have a professional recommend it for you and that professional will stand behind that product.  If the product isn't working the way you want it to, the professional will find out why and recommend another for you. 
The other reason is because it's a professional product, it is more concentrated and will last longer.  Usually, you only need to use a nickle to a dime size of the product.
I had a client tell me that she didn't like MAC's eye shadows.   Now, personally, I think MAC is an amazing makeup line.  I asked her why she didn't like MAC.  She told me that it was too dark and heavy for her.  So I asked her what eye shadows had she used before.  She told me a product from a drug store.  There was the problem. 
She was used to using a lot of product to get the results that she wanted.  And so when she applied MAC, which is very concentrated in pigment, it was too much for her.  And, I explained that to her.  A little goes a long way!!!  And that is the way a product should be.
And, a professional makeup artist or esthetician should always stand behind his or her products.  If a client isn't happy with the product, always ask questions.  Make sure the client is using it properly.  And, ask what results the client is looking for.  And remember that it is always about the client...
The idea is to make her look and feel her best!!!

When it comes to African American skin care and others with darker complexions however, there are a few skin care problems that are much more prevalent.

The importance of skin care cannot be underestimated. Did you know, for example, that the skin is the largest organ of the human body? Mostly we take our skin very much for granted and don't spend much time thinking about the skin's functions and their importance, until some problem occurs or we injure ourselves.
