Esthetics by P Brown Institute

As you know, our Esthetics Program has been fully flowing and our students are learning how to care for you the Esthetics by P Brown way.  They’ve mastered these techniques so well, you’ll want  to book with them to have the experience yourself.  Right now you can book with them for the neck, shoulder, and facial massage.  If you can’t think of why you need a neck, shoulder and facial massage, keep reading.

Benefits Of A Neck And Shoulder Massage

A neck massage helps loosen tight muscles around the neck and shoulder area.  A lot of people carry their stress in their neck and shoulders.  Neck pain can also come from poor posture, or muscle strain.  Shoulder pain can come from over use, collar bone or upper arm fractures, tendinitis, and pinched nerves. It’s common for parents to experience neck and shoulder pain from carrying a baby/child.  

A neck and shoulder massage aims is to relieve tension, improve circulation, reduce headaches, increase relaxation and lower joint stiffness.    

Neck And Shoulder Massage Benefits 

  • Helps reduce headaches, migraines and eye strains. 
  • It helps with relieving muscle spasms 
  • It helps blood circulate and reduces pressure in the head. 
  • It encourages positive moods (sometimes we carry anxiety in our necks and shoulders and when our body relaxes, so does our nervous system).
  • It helps realign our bodies.
  • It increases white blood cells and lymphocytes (helps fight illness and infections).

Why Get A Face Massage

Our faces are full of muscles that we use every day, therefore a facial massage offers many benefits.  It helps relax facial muscles, promotes healthy skin, and rejuvenates your skin.

Benefits To A Face Massage:

  • Helps improves the appearance of your skin
  • Helps relieve sinus pressure and congestion
  • Helps promote blood circulation and reduce the appearance of acne
  • It increases the blood flow to your skin and helps the skin heal more properly.  
  • It moves toxins out of cells and reduces puffiness and swelling
  • Helps reduce built up tension in your face that sometimes causes daily stress.
  • Speeds up circulation and allows for skin to heal and repair itself a lot quicker from the damage put on it
  • Increases the oxygen flow and awakens the skin to receive the products used more effectively. 

Our bodies experience a lot of pressure and stress from the toxins in the air, over working ourselves, and simply daily wear and tear – whatever that is to you.  A gentle neck, shoulder, and or face massage will add to your body’s endurance.  

So if you’re experiencing any of these ailments or you simply feel you’d like a neck, shoulder, and face massage, simply schedule with our students.

Best At-home Face Mask Removal Tips

I was talking to someone today who asked me this question.  I’m sharing the answer in case others have the same question.

QUESTION: When I use masks at home, what’s the best way to clean them off my face?  


  • If you are using a Clay mask or a Gel mask, they have a slow time-released delivery system.  For those you will clear off your face with a warm wash cloth.
  • If you are using a serum mask or even some cream masks, and you’re using them to deposit nutrients – those you won’t clean off.  For those type of masks, you’ll want to let them sit on your face for up to 20 minutes.  Afterwards, usually, you’ll simply want to layer the next step in your routine (over the mask).  
  •  If you are using a mask for hydration, that mask, is often times not removed. 
  •  If you are using an Enzyme mask or a Vitamin A mask for hyperpigmentation, that is often times not removed.  If it is removed, it’s removed about 24 hours later.  For those types of masks, at the end of the 24 hours, you will want to cleanse your face as you normally would.  

The Vitamin A mask is one I often use on my clients to finish hyperpigmentation treatments; Vitamin A helps promote healthy skin.  Another common mask used here is the Aztec clay mask which we use in the Champagne Facial, just to slow down the delivery system and introduce minerals into the skin. While the Aztec clay helps draw out impurities from your skin, if you put active products or ingredients on the skin too quickly, it can cause as much damage as not having enough ingredients or having the wrong ones. 

At Esthetics by P Brown, we customize all of our masks, so there’s no patent.  Each client gets a custom mask that will give them a combination of hydration, treatment, and nourishment.  

2nd QUESTION: Do you send clients home with any type of mask?  

ANSWER: Not usually.

That’s only because the benefit of the mask is more related to the combination in which you use it.  I will only send a mask home if I know the client is really good with masking (applying it) once a week or twice a week and I know they can follow the routine (instructions) the way they are meant to be applied.  However, if the mask instructions are not carried out correctly, it becomes a waste of time, energy, and product.  

I hope this was helpful and if it was, please leave me a comment below.  Also, please forward this post to anyone you know who would benefit from this information.

DIY Edible Mask

Strawberry Fountain of Youth Mask

This is an easy, edible, effective mask and you can find everything you need (for it) at your local grocery store. This mask is so easy to make, you can make it with your teens. It’s a great option for taking care of their skin and it gives you more time with them especially since at that age, their time is scarce. This mask makes you feel oh-so pampered.

2 plump Strawberries

1 Tablespoon Honey

1 Tablespoon of Collagen Powder

1 Tablespoon Greek Yogurt

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice (optional)


Strawberries contain Vitamin C and help fight free radicals. Honey is an anti-bacterial agent and also contains antioxidants. Collagen powder is the anti-aging product – it helps reduce skin’s aging. Greek yogurt adds the protein and helps fade blemishes and reduce wrinkles. Lemon juice (optional) adds Vitamin C.


Start with crushed strawberries. How spoil me is that? Then, add the honey, then the collagen powder (which will help thicken the mask so it’s not as runny). Next, you’ll add the yogurt (choose Plain Greek yogurt) it will also help thicken the mask.


Since we’re working with natural ingredients, after you apply the mask, you’ll want to leave the mask on for about 15 – 20 minutes. You’ll want to give your skin time to absorb all properties and benefits of the ingredients. Then you will want to remove the mask with warm water and a clean cloth.
