  One of the most common skin care concerns I have seen, no matter what the skin type, is dehydration. I have had clients with acne and oily skin have terrible dehydration. Typically skin that is dried out through the use of harsh ingredients is left even more vulnerable to further oil production and acne […]

  When I think of a “dewy” skin I think of a skin that is fresh, glowing and well hydrated. Who wouldn’t want that? It begins with a well moisturized skin and ends with a minimal make-up application.

  I can not say enough about the Dolphin Bay Resort and the spa La Bonne Vie. We went for a weekend getaway, perfect for anyone in Southern California. The central coast is far enough that I felt I was away but I did not have to get on a plane. The first thing we […]
