LASPA Sun Care~ Protecting your skin naturally from the sun with mineral sunscreen

I have something to tell you.  I never wear sunscreen. What kind of esthetician am I? I mean, I’ve never found a sunscreen that I liked for my face and body until I discovered LASPA Suncare.  I had a crazy pigmentation spot on my face last summer that drove me crazy.  It’s now gone mind you, but that was my wake up call…

My guide to silky smooth feet this winter

I love pedicures.  I love a good foot rub the most but as an esthetician, I am picky and tend to do my own pedicures.  Especially when estheticians don’t listen to the client’s request.  I almost kicked one esthetician in the face when she pulled out the credo blade and proceeded to remove the little calluses I had.  You see, once…
