2020 sure has been quite the year. Your skin might feel sensitive due to the smoke, if you’re needing a little extra skin care TLC be sure to email me.
In my last email/blog post I touched on my holistic approach to skin care. While diet and exercise play a big part, using the wrong products can throw your skin out of whack. In this and the next few emails I’ll be giving you some tools to help you invest in products that will benefit your skin. If you need some extra direction, reply to this email to make an appointment for a complimentary consultation and skin analysis.
Why Your Skin Type is Important
Your skin type determines the kind of cleanser and moisturizer you should use. If you use a product unsuited for your skin type, your skin will be thrown out of balance and you could experience anything from a rash, redness to a breakout.

It is important to note that Acne and Mature skin can be treated a skin type or a skin condition. These two can be tricky and a skin analysis is a great way to get personalized care.
Live beautifully, Alison
