I'm not proud of this, but I will own it. I went 28 years without ever actually cleaning my face. Sure, I thought I was "washing" it with whatever $6.99 cleanser CVS had on sale that month, but I didn't understand the skin or what cleansing truly meant. While I experienced my first life-changing facial at 28, it was not until I was 31 that I began to understand skin or skin care in general. I had no idea that your skin is your largest organ. Or that the top layer of skin is just dead skin cells shedding everywhere. (Hello DNA) I didn't know why I got randomly or how to stop pimples. I didn't know why my makeup never went on as nicely as those YouTube girls.
Six years ago, after spotting some expression lines on my forehead and using Biore Strips that were not winning my blackheads battle (well, what I thought were blackheads), I decided to venture into the unknown and see an expert. I booked myself a signature facial with the local esthetician. I had NO IDEA what to expect.
It was a 9 am appointment, and I walked into a dimmed room, candles flicking with the scent of lavender and some other unrecognizable but soothing oils. I changed into a white wrap, keeping my pants on, and was tucked into a warm bed with the softest linens as the sound of the ocean played lightly in the background.
What had I been missing all these years? As a layman at the time, I couldn't tell you much of what happened next. As a licensed esthetician, I know what happened during that hour of pure magic. As I lay in comfort, my skin was seduced with the highest quality cleansers, enzymes, and serums, and my face, neck & shoulders were massaged with creams & oils while I slipped into the "coma." The best part about this coma? Instead of needing physical therapy upon waking, you open your eyes looking refreshed, more vibrant, hydrated, and youthful than ever!
