About Tricia Beel
My fascination with skin care products and makeup began when I was very young. I acquired all sorts of sticky peel-off masks, goopy creams, lotions and potions from my grandmother, who was an Avon lady. Curious by what the label promised, I would readily apply them to both myself and my friends, and wait anxiously for the twenty minutes of processing time to pass so I might see what sort of amazing skin transformation had happened underneath.
More recently, I’ve been studying nutrition and the role that food plays on how we age and the health of our skin. I know I’ve been told “you are what you eat” since the first grade, but I just never believed it. Now I know it’s true. What we put in our bodies not only affects how healthy we are on the inside, but it also absolutely affects how we look.
Likewise, what we put on our skin can affect out health too, both inside and out. The skin is like a sponge – chemicals and preservatives are absorbed and can enter the blood stream and our tissue, the same way that food does. As an esthetician, this knowledge is a little troubling – have you ever read the ingredients of your average skin care product? E-gads!
So now I’ve made it my mission to find chemical free, non-toxic ways to combat aging, acne, sensitized skin and other imbalances. I use nutritious, organic and natural products in my treatments in conjunction with safe, non-invasive modalities like ultrasound and high frequency current. The results speak for themselves – beautiful, glowing, hydrated and nourished skin.
