Hey there, beautiful souls! With so many new friends joining us on this skincare journey, I thought it's the perfect time to reintroduce myself. But instead of the typical bio, how about I answer some skincare-based questions? Here we go:
The Ultimate Self-Care Routine:
After a long, stressful day, my go-to self-care routine is all about the ultimate bath experience. I prepare a warm bath with magnesium salts to ease tired muscles and add a dash of essential oils to soothe my nerves. I take my time, sipping on water and tea while body brushing before stepping in. I even whip up a homemade body sugar scrub to use while in the bath, leaving my skin feeling incredibly smooth. Of course, there's always a facemask involved, followed by a gentle gua sha massage with nourishing oils. And, on days when I'm feeling extra, I might throw in some massage cupping.
The Most Unusual Beauty Treatment:
I once ventured into the world of radio frequency needling, and let me tell you, it was unlike anything I'd ever experienced. Imagine a stamp of needles resting inside your skin, releasing a current for a few seconds before retracting. Even with numbing cream, it was more painful than any tattoo. This treatment was meant to tighten and thicken the skin, but at 25, my collagen was in its prime, so I didn't need it. I only tried it to better understand what my clients might go through. Let's just say I won't be repeating that adventure anytime soon!
Dream Skincare Product:
If I could create the ultimate skincare product, it would be a formula that boosts skin immunity, soothes inflammation, brims with antioxidants, and expertly balances oil and water levels. This dream product would be a reflection of our commitment to ethical sourcing, cruelty-free testing, and sustainability.
My fascination with astrology started during a period of soul-searching. I'm an Aquarius, naturally curious and spiritually inclined. A dear friend used to give me regular tarot readings, encouraging me to delve deeper into self-discovery. That's when I realized the intriguing overlap between tarot, astrology, and personal development. Astrology, in particular, offers insights into our personalities, strengths, weaknesses, and life paths. Plus, it's an excellent icebreaker on a first date!
Must-Have Skincare Ingredient:
If I had to pick just one skincare ingredient for life, it would be zinc. While pure zinc skincare products are a rarity, this element boasts anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, making it a savior for acne-prone skin. It aids in wound healing and offers protection against UV radiation—a must, especially for someone like me, living in a sunny, Pacific island paradise.
I'm overwhelmed by the support and love that has accompanied me on this incredible skincare journey. Thank you from the depths of my heart. Together, we'll continue to explore the world of skincare, self-care, and self-love. Sending you all loads of love and positive vibes! - Chels 💕
