An Easy Tip For Relieving Severely Dry Skin

Esthetics by P Brown Ethnic Skincare Experts

QUESTION: I have eczema on my hands, how do I keep them from looking and feeling so dry?

ANSWER: I treat this often at the day spa, you’ll want to use a chemical exfoliant something like a gommage with an occlusive moisturizer, then moisturize daily.

What You Should Know About Severely Dry Skin

What’s a Gommage? 

Gommage is a product that exfoliates and leaves the skin really soft. Usually a gommage uses a combination of ingredients to provide a gentle, chemical exfoliation on your skin.  

What are Occlusives?

Occlusives are moisturizing agents that work by forming a protective layer on the surface of your skin and create a physical barrier to help prevent water loss from the skin’s surface, while protecting the skin from external irritants. The effect is that you retain moisture on your skin, reduce irritation and restore the skin’s barrier. 

Common occlusive agents include waxes (carnauba and beeswax), silicone, oils (olive and soybean), dimethicone, lanolin, mineral oil and white petrolatum. 

Occlusives often have a thick, heavy consistency when used topically, this thickness helps them be seen as an ideal choice for very dry skin.

Question: Who Do You Trust With Your Skincare?

Trust Esthetics by P Brown with your skincare

You may not know this, but I have Eczema and Grade 2 acne; my skin doesn’t know what will work for it—any day of the week.  I have to finesse my skin so I don’t look like a snake with pimples.   All of that takes work and if your skin is as finicky as mine, you’ll want to do all that it takes with a professional. 

I don’t let everyone touch my skin because if you mess it up it’s going to take a 28-day cycle to fix it…and that won’t make me happy.   With my skincare, I need someone who isn’t just calling themselves an expert; I need someone who has a track record and can provide proof and references if I ask.   Can I call the person you helped?

Become A Part Of The Tribe

What I love about my clients is that if I say to them, “I have someone who had the same issue you have, and (working together) this is how much we accomplished with their skin…”  You can call them.  My clients will talk to anyone about their skincare journey and progress.  I don’t have a single client that would say no… why?  Because we’re in this together.  They would say, “Porsche, please tell her/him to call me so I can share how this went…so I can share where I was emotionally and where I am now—so I don’t have to beat my face (apply makeup) every morning. 

We are a family here and that’s the atmosphere I choose to set every day so people can relax in our care. We’re a tribe.

That being said, you will want to select a professional who understands the concept of leading a “tribe.”   You want someone who knows what your pH levels should look like – stable.  Someone who will design a clear game plan and will not charge you (extra) for being on an emotional journey. 

You Can Trust Us With Your Emotional Skincare Journey

Unfortunately in this industry, some professionals know that when your face is not the way you want it – it is emotional.  Emotional consumers will pay for convenience while they are in their emotions.  Some professionals take advantage of emotional clients and overcharge them because they know people will pay anything to fix their skin.  Therefore, you need someone with integrity

At Esthetics by P Brown, our philosophy is to help improve the confidence and self-esteem of our clients.  Our goal is to provide affordable skincare so we can extend our reach across the country.  Although I have clients in 49 states and 5 countries, my team takes the journey with each client whether you walk into the day spa or reach us through virtual consultations. 

So… please remember that when you pick your professional, you’ll want to find someone who will work—with you—through your journey. We’ve always got room in the tribe, come see us.

Imagine Being the Esthetician in High Demand

Esthetics By P Brown University is Accepting Applications!

Hey tribe, I wanted to let you know about this awesome opportunity for up and coming Estheticians.  We are officially expanding Esthetics by P Brown University to include an Esthetics Program.

A Few Program Details 

OUR MISSION

To equip and empower future estheticians to finish school, work in a field where their passion lies, and become immediately employable whether they own their own business or work for another business.  

THE CURRICULUM

We are using Milady Mind Tap (proven to improve student outcomes).  Milady has been the premier resource in the beauty industry since 1927 and continues lead the industry – today.  The curriculum will be used as our base with Mind Tap.  Then with more advanced treatments we will build and customize through the “P-Brown Method” for executing.

Those who choose to attend Esthetics by P Brown University, will learn the history and the basics of Esthetics.  Additionally, you’ll learn advanced techniques like Body Contouring and Lash Extensions, along with non-invasive alternatives to Botox which includes:  Butt Lifts, Thigh Toning, Ab Toning, familiarity with Micro Needling, Dermaplaining, and other techniques that will allow students to immediately finish school and remain a (relevant) Esthetician.

Our program will infuse the students with enough education coupled with experience for students to recognize when their procedures may cause harm to the client.  

When I finish the program, will I be able to intern with Esthetics by P Brown? 

YES.  You will actually be interning during the program.  When you complete the program, our objective is for you to: 

  1.  Be equipped to pass Tennessee Boards at 80% or higher.  
  2. Have created a marketing campaign so wherever they go online (Instagram, Facebook, personal single page website) their portfolio will show their name in the industry.
  3. Be consistently interning with Esthetics by P Brown and/or other beauty spas while in school with an option to continue the mentorship and interning after graduation. 
  4. Already have clientele. 
  5. Receive Job Placement Assistance.

What procedures will be in place so I will be able to pass the board exams at 80%?

Traditionally, most aesthetic schools have the students read through the entire textbook and then when they get to the end of the textbook, they go through their mock trials (what’s been learned cumulatively and then students are slammed with a series of tests for which they expect students to have retained all of the knowledge within the learning time).  

  • The students will complete the mock trials (mocks) at the end of each chapter and if the material will be covered on the Tennessee State Board examination (Boards), before moving to the next chapter, the students will be asked to complete the mocks.  During the Mocks, students will be asked to display the set-ups and the breakdowns, and the students will be critiqued, videoed (students will receive a digital copy so they’ll have it as a reference to watch and self-study so when they move on to the next chapter, students will have the experience and repetition to help them remember what’s expected of them). 
  • Students will do run-through mocks of the previous chapters and a run-through mock of the current chapter, so that by the time they get to the end of the learning, they don’t have to work as hard to remember everything they learned over the past 12 months.  After the many trial mocks, when they’re asked to give all 8 sections at one time, going through it step by step, and with each mock the State Board Kit will be built.  
  • By the end of the program, students will know what to do.  Educating the students in this manner, helps build their confidence and their knowledge (level) so that when they go take the Tennessee Board Exam, after having reviewed the study material over and over again, 80% may be the minimum score received.

I just wanted to give you a sneak peak of what we’ve been working towards so, look forward to receiving more information about the program in upcoming blogs and on social media.  If you or someone you know is interested, you can reach us by phone at (615) 884-6744 or by email at admin@estheticsbypbtrown.com.
