I am so excited to be able to start my New Year off with a glowing complexion! We all know what the holidays means; lots of parties, lots of events, and lots of photos! Glowing, beautiful skin is always in style and there’s no better time than the New Year to show it off. That’s why I took the time to visit my go-to esthetician Brenna from Blush by Brenna in Poulsbo, WA.
Pregnancy did a number on my skin. I had pregnancy induced melasma all on one side of my face, and none on the other. Needless to say, it used to make me incredibly self conscious. That would mean extra makeup to conceal and even out my skin. And while I like to wear makeup, I don’t like wearing a lot of makeup. So then I’d end up feeling self conscious about how much makeup I was wearing! My skin would get congested, and I’d end up wearing even more makeup! Enter Brenna.
Her “Perfect Facial” felt more glorious than a massage. We started off with a kiwi cream cleanse, then sloughed off dull, dead skin with a cranberry gomage. Her 30% glycolic peel and pumpkin peel works overtime to get you that beautiful, glowing skin. She even provides the most relaxing and hydrating hand and feet massages! Seriously, when is the last time you had a foot massage? It’s incredible. Alright, next came the not so pleasant part; extractions. Like I mentioned above, my skin was super congested! Brenna worked all of that congestion out, and then massaged wine oil into my skin for an anti-aging benefit. If I could bath in that stuff, I would. We topped off the facial with this incredible treatment called Thermo-Lo that gets rid of hyperpigmentation from my pregnancy induced melasma.
I love feeling comfortable and confident while bare faced. But lets be honest, that isn’t so simple as we get older! Sometimes we need just a little help from our local, friendly esthetician. I am feeling super vulnerable right now for posting a makeup free/filter free/unedited selfie on the internet (where nothing ever dies) but I couldn’t resist showing you all the amazing benefits of these treatments. Sure I still have little problem areas, I am human! But my skin has been radiant and oh so soft ever since my visit to Blush by Brenna. Check her out and get your New Years glow on!
