Our skin is a direct reflection of our overall health and is exposed to a number of elements on a daily basis. Let’s face it, life often gets in the way of the skin care routines we know we should be doing which is why it’s even more important to take some time to pamper and heal your skin.
Cranwell’s own Amy Mannix, BABOR Master & Mentor Esthetician, is here to share some of the things she has learned about BABOR and caring for skin over the years.
When did you know you wanted to be an Esthetician and how long have you been doing this?
I have had my own personal skin issues since I was in high school. I did a lot of research and started using whole foods, vitamins & herbs to help with some of these skin concerns. In college I started working in health care and as a gift I was sent to see an Esthetician by a coworker. After my first facial I knew that was my calling. I wanted to incorporate all I knew about nutrition and combine that with skin care to help heal and care for others. It has now been 15 years and it feels like I am still in the honeymoon period of my career.
You are BABOR Master & Mentor, what drew you to the BABOR product line?
The innovation of the line, the results, and how customizable it is. I can be a bit of a science nerd – and the ingredients makes sense, the delivery systems make sense. This is a luxury line that offers exactly what I want to use on MY skin. As an Esthetician, BABOR offers such a diverse range of products and treatments that I can customize a program for any skin care concern or focus. And I feel good recommending and using BABOR because their ingredients work without any unnecessary parabens or chemicals. I need to believe in a product to recommend it to a guest and with BABOR, I wholeheartedly have that.
Are the BABOR treatments good for any specific types of skin conditions? If so, what kind of results can be expected?
There are treatments and products for every skin type and skin condition. I always prepare guests to be wowed after a BABOR treatment. BABOR’s treatments are intended to not only pamper the skin with needed balancing, but really stimulate & heal the skin. The treatments repair damage we put our skin through every day from internal to external stressors. Expect radiant beauty and a youthful glow.
For someone who has never had a BABOR skin treatment what is the first treatment you would recommend and why?
BABOR’s 80 minute skin solution treatment. It is a perfect way to start your introduction to BABOR. It is a customizable treatment for the prevention of aging for every skin type. Some of the techniques included are a deep cleansing and exfoliation ritual including warm and cool compresses, a signature vitality mask to increase circulation and oxygen in the skin, & fluid concentrates to immediately transform and boost the skin. This luxury treatment also comprises BABOR’s Effective Touch massage to bring balance by relaxing and detoxifying the muscles while also de-stressing the mind.
