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.

Help! I Need To Brighten My Bikini Area

Esthetics by P Brown can help clean up all of your bikini area concerns.

This question was a DM in my social media, I’m sharing it so all my (lady) clients know, yes, we can help brighten your bikini area.

QUESTION:

Porsche, I need to get rid of this hyperpigmentation around my bikini area, I’m headed to Jamaica to renew my wedding vows in June, what can I do?

ANSWER: 

Believe me, I understand your dilemma, we definitely can help you and we can do it soon so you can check that off your list.  Vaginal hyperpigmentation is common and it can develop from a lot of reasons including hormonal changes.  

You can get a body peel where we’ll lay low-grade acids, like a pumpkin enzyme acid, or I’ve done a hibiscus acid or an apple wine acid, something that is gentle enough to peel your intimate area but strong enough to lift up the hyperpigmentation. 

No Intimate Relations For 3 Days 

If we do a vaginal peel, you will want to wait until three days after the peel to have relations as my grandmother would say.  The reasoning is because you’ll be shedding and there’ll be nothing sexy about it.  Now, once you’ve passed the 72-hour mark, your bikini area will look so good you’ll be wanting to show it off (not suggesting it, just saying).  

Pumpkin Is Perfect for the Bikini Area

Pumpkin is the perfect enzyme to use on the bikini area, because it contains Glyolic Acid.  Glycolic Acid is a water-soluble alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), it has the smallest molecules and is why it’s able to easily penetrate the skin.  Glycolic Acid comes from a natural derivative such as Aloe or Pumpkin.  The pumpkin is also loaded with vitamins and antioxidants, it naturally exfoliates dead skin cells.  Pumpkin will give you a flawless glow, even skin, and reduce ingrown hairs.

So if you’re in need of a vaginal peel or have noticed hyperpigmentation below, let us help you.  Also, if you have any questions about hyperpigmentation, chemical peels, or any skincare questions in general, please feel free to call us at (615) 884 – 6744 or email us at admin@estheticsbypbrown.com. 

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.  Please remember to follow us on social media:FacebookTwitterYouTubeInstagram, and IGTV to see our upcoming classes, seminars, and videos.

Honeycomb Soap: Your Full-Body Moisturizing System

Esthetics by P Brown Honeycomb Soap

Spring has arrived and we’re introducing our newest addition to the “hydrating” soap line – our Honeycomb Soap.  This soap is so refreshing, it will change your bathing routine.  After using with this soap all you’ll feel is hydrated, moisturized skin.  

Don’t Miss Out! Get Your Honey Comb Soap Today!

We cannot narrow down the benefits to just one purpose for this Honeycomb soap.  As I was creating this soap, I thought I needed a product that could benefit the masses without my skincare clients having to come in and see me.  With that being said, I questioned the most common issues our clients deal with, how we could meet those needs in a soap and a recipe that was not just for the yoni area.  I created a solution; this soap is perfectly formulated and pH balanced for the entire body.

Since we have a larger ethnic skincare clientele, I started by reviewing the acids that would aid in exfoliation.  There are 2 types of exfoliation: mechanical and chemical.  Mechanical exfoliation requires a tool to remove dead skin cells.  On the other hand, a chemical exfoliation example is your St Ives scrub, and your apricot seeds, which you can find in some of our other soaps.  

Chemical means an enzyme or acid that uses a chemical reaction to break down the skin cells.  This is important whether you’re dealing with darkness under your arms or hyperpigmentation and darkness in the vaginal area, knees, or back of the neck.   There are so many areas, especially with clients who have eczema and rosacea, because the main problem if you have eczema and rosacea is that your cellular turnover has slowed down to a crawl.   My job as your Ethnic Skincare Specialist, is to retrain and reboost your skin and get it working at its optimal level.  

Side Bar: No one is born with a slow/sluggish cellular turnover.  Usually somewhere between childhood (because parents don’t always know) and young adulthood, your behaviors damage the skin cells, to the point where that turnover cycle has slowed down as the body’s way to protect itself.  And now, you have layers upon layers, upon layers of dead skin.  

So, the Honeycomb Soap comes in and uses the Mandelic Acid and use the Ferulic Acid which is great with managing hormones, promoting collagen production, contains anti-aging properties and will slowly dissolve the buildup of dead skin cells.  However, while its doing that if you saw our Instagram Stories you saw the hydration dripping.  Hydration was dripping with an MCT Rose Oil blend that has a little bit of 24k gold inside, so it’s demineralizing the skin as well. The Mct Oil at its base is a metabolizer, as well as an oil, so you’re getting double the exfoliation.  Mct Oil is so strong that if you pour mct oil into a styro-foam cup, it metabolizes to the point that eventually it will eat through the bottom of the cup.  On your skin, Mct Oil has two purposes: it hydrates your skin and it dissolves bacteria breakup on the skin.   

This soap can be used on your entire body.  If you want to receive these benefits, go to our website and order your Honeycomb Soap today!

For more information about our Honeycomb Soap or if you would like to schedule an appointment, please feel free to schedule with us on our website: www.estheticsbypbrown.com.  If you have any questions about skincare, please feel free to call us at (615) 884 – 6744 or email us at admin@estheticsbypbrown.com

Kids With Eczema: 2 Quick And Easy Treatments

Does anyone else have this question?

QUESTION:

My four-year-old son has eczema all over his body.   The doctor suggested we use hydrocortisone cream to stop his itching.   My son is so miserable and I can’t keep him from scratching.  He scratches during his sleep and often until his skin bleeds.  Please help me help my son.

RESPONSE:

It sounds like your son’s skin needs exfoliation and hydration.  

Eczema is a condition that causes the skin to become itchy.  There are seven different types and it’s not contagious.  It often starts in childhood and there is no cure, but there are treatments to help.  There’s a two ingredient scrub you can make in your kitchen that should help soothe his itching.  The two ingredients needed for the scrub are brown sugar and olive oil.

Benefits of Brown Sugar Olive Oil Scrub

Brown Sugar is great for sensitive skin because it’s a natural exfoliator that doesn’t leave microscopic cuts on the skin and it can easily be used on the face, too.  Brown sugar is an anti-bacterial that contains Glycolic acid.   Glycolic acid happens to be an Alpha-hydroxyl acid which has tiny molecules that easily penetrate the skin, it’s often used in anti-aging products.

Olive Oil is loaded with vitamins and antioxidants, it moisturizes and fights bacteria.  Olive Oil hydrates the skin naturally.  

You may want to make batches of the Brown Sugar and Olive Oil scrub and apply it to his skin/body three times at night.  

Baby Oil Gel Adds Relief

Another option for relief is if you purchase some baby oil gel and apply it while his skin is wet.  As you gently help dry off your son, the towel can be used to buff the oil into his skin.  The baby oil gel is really good for sealing in moisture.

These are simple lower cost methods to help children with itchiness from eczema.  If you have any further questions about eczema or any skin care questions, please feel free to contact us.  We can be reached by phone at (615) 884 – 6744 or email us at estheticsbypbrown@yahoo.com.

Help! I Think My Skin’s PH Is Out Of Balance!

I found this question on my social media and chose to answer it here.

Question: My skin has been really dry this winter; will I have to deal with dryness in the spring too?

Answer: Oftentimes, our skincare needs change when the seasons change.  To keep up with the changing conditions, you may need to adjust your pH levels.  

What’s My PH Level?

When I say pH levels, I’m talking about the acid verses alkaline balance in your skin.  A pH level above 7 is alkaline and a pH level below 7 is acidic.  A pH level right at about 7 is considered neutral.  Of course, too much of anything is not good for you, therefore too acidic or too alkaline is not good for you.  

There are a lot of factors that can affect your skin’s pH level, here are a few:

  • Humidity (change of seasons)
  • Air pollution
  • Overexposure of sun
  • Soap and detergents 
  • Cosmetics
  • Sweat
  • Tap water

Try A Low Alkaline Cleanser

One of the ways you can balance your pH level with your skincare routine is by using a low alkaline cleanser.  You’ll want to select a cleanser with a pH level between 2.5 and 4.3.   

Below are some cleanser suggestions based on your skin type:

  • Normal skin – find a mild cleanser.
  • Oily skin – find a cleanser that contains Salicylic Acid.
  • Dry skin – find a cleanser that contains a moisturizer or find a cream based cleanser that includes Lactic Acid
  • Combination skin – look for a mild cleanser that contains Glycolic Acid.
  • Myelinated skin – find a cleanser containing Hybrid Glycolic Acid.
  • Sensitive skin – look for a cream-based cleanser so it moisturizes your skin but does not contain Alpha Hydroxy Acids

I hope this was helpful, please feel free to contact us with any of your skin care questions or to schedule a virtual consultation.  You may reach us by phone at (615) 884-6744 or by email at estheticsbypbrown@yahoo.com.

The Ultimate Facial for Your Skin

People visit day spas for various reasons.  When you visit Esthetics by P Brown, our aim is for you to experience pampering at its’ best.  Our foundation for skincare is based off the Lancer model and we have customized our methods to meet the needs of those with ethnic skin because that’s our specialty.  As you entrust us with your skincare needs, we join you (each step of the way) on your skincare journey.

It’s important for you to know that all of our facials start with the Organic Refresh Facial and then clients can add-on as needed.  The Organic Refresh Facial is designed simply to be a maintenance facial – for the clients without hyperpigmentation, or severe acne, or for clients who may have hormonal acne (one or two breakouts during her cycle), and for clients who are just happy with their skin as it is.  The Organic Refresh Facial will hydrate, treat, nourish, and restore your pH levels, it also allows us to assess your skin and ensure you’re using the best products for your skin.   This service usually runs 30 – 45 minutes.   

WHY GET A FACIAL?    

A facial by an esthetician is one of the best ways to care for your skin.  Here at Esthetics by P Brown, we use a 3 step method that has proven the greatest success for our client’s skin. 

Step 1:  Exfoliate

Exfoliation polishes the skin and removes any debris.  This is an important step because it helps remove dead skin cells thus leaving your skin looking vibrant and hydrated.

Step 2: Cleanse 

Cleansing is the act of gently removing the impurities, so your skin looks and feels healthier.  

Step 3: Hydrate 

One of the biggest threats to the aging process is a lack of hydration to the skin.  Cells can lack the amount of oil they need (dry skin) or the amount of water they need (dehydrated skin), so it causes the cells to struggle to complete the cellular turnover process.  

Now, at Esthetics by P Brown since we focus on ethnic skin care, we take it 3 steps further.  While following those steps we have to ensure that your ingredients nourish and rebuild the skin so that they’re not over-treating or over-stripping, and not rebuilding it back up.  

WHAT ARE SOME BENEFITS OF A FACIAL? 

There are many benefits to a facial, I won’t name them all, but here are a few.  Facials increase circulation, help improve the skins ability to remain hydrated, help fight against free radicals and the aging process and allows for the renewal of skin cells. 

WHAT IS A RESET FACIAL?

A Reset Facial is an Organic Refresh Facial that is designed for our clients who have traveled somewhere with another eco system.  For example, if you’re from Tennessee and you travel to Arizona or Las Vegas, or California, we’ll do a reset facial and it will reset your pH levels after your trip.  We’ve been seeing that facial needed more and more for people who are skincare junkies, and they’re just out there trying stuff from YouTube and it’s throwing off their pH levels and inflaming their skin, then we’ll reset their levels.  This facial is usually 15-20 minutes.  

WHAT IS A MINI FACIAL?

The Mini Facial is for people who are on a time-crunch.  You’ll come in, we’ll exfoliate your skin and then do a quick cleanse and hydrate with a moisturizer.  You won’t receive a mask or extractions.  We’re literally looking at removing any buildup, cleansing the skin thoroughly, and hydrating the skin.  This is a 10 minute facial.  

HOW DO I SCHEDULE A FACIAL?

Let’s say you need corrective skincare, you’ll visit the website and hit the button that says, “Book Today” when the services appear, select Facials, then select the Organic Refresh Facial.  From that screen, you should be able to go into add-ons.  That’s where you let us know what your issues are.  Maybe it’s Hyperpigmentation, Acne Breakouts, Milia, or whatever your skin condition is, you’ll want to select the add-on, so we can customize your facial needs.  From there depending on what you select as an issue is how the professional will determine what needs to be applied during the service.

We understand that sometimes, clients aren’t sure of what they need.  Not to worry, we’ll do a consultation before the service and ask the proper questions to make the process flow more smoothly.  In which case you’ll want to go ahead and schedule the Organic Refresh Facial.   

Our Organic Refresh Facials do more than give you a superficial cleanse, they give your skin a deep cleanse and have you leaving the spa radiantly glowing.  Men, this extravagance is not only for women, men benefit heavily from spending time in the facial room.

3 Secrets to Flawless Skin This Fall

As you’ve probably noticed, Fall has officially arrived.  If you look outside, you’ll see the leaves are starting to change colors and in some places, leaves are already falling off the trees.  I love fall, it’s during this season that I get to exchange my summer clothes for boots and cardigans.

Another transition I make during the change of seasons is with my skincare products.  If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know I’ve got some new bars of soap that we can’t seem to keep on the shelves.  I’ll add the link below for you to learn more about our new soaps.  

Since the season has changed, there’s no reason for your skin to lose its luster and glow.  Below are 3 secrets to keep your skin looking moisturized and healthy this Fall.

These 3 Tips Will Keep Your Skin Looking Flawless During Seasonal Change

  1. INVEST IN THE PROPER CLEANSER

Cleansers don’t come in One Size Fits All (Seasons).  People like to tell you they do, especially if you are purchasing over the counter (OTC) products because that’s how those companies make their money.  However, when you purchase professional skincare products, they have smaller molecules so they’re better able to penetrate the skin and give you the best results.

The reason you come to a skincare specialist like me, is so I can examine your skin during a facial, determine your skin type, and suggest the proper products for you based on your skin type.   If you are not one of my clients, then, you will want to start seeing an aesthetician and you’ll want to see one at least every season.  You’ll need a facial for all four seasons: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Your skin more than likely will change with the weather.  However, if you invest in the wrong products for your skin type, it will throw off your pH levels and it will take a professional longer to get them back in balance.

2. EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE

We’re in Fall, but headed into Winter, so your skin will get dryer and the skin cells will build-up.  This is when you’ll want to exfoliate.  It’s okay to exfoliate daily as long as you vary your exfoliants.  You may do so by using a light enzyme, a light acid, and a light manual scrub.  If you don’t know what I am talking about or you’re not familiar with these terms, please either leave comments or contact us directly.

*Side note: For those who are pregnant – since the skin is sensitive and even more-so with a little one inside you – you will want to exfoliate with brown sugar.

3. MOISTURIZE

You’ll want to apply the proper moisturizer.  If you have oily skin – please avoid using an oil-based moisturizer and make sure you get a water-based moisturizer.  If you have dry skin, use a more emollient moisturizer.  However, if you don’t know your skin type, please contact us and we will help you schedule a consultation to get the answers to your questions and take care of your needs.

I hope this was helpful.  For more information about our new soaps, check out our previous blogs: Anti-aging Pumpkin Spice Latte Soap,  Sleepy Thyme Soap Soothes Slumber, and Our “Yoni Love” Soap is Drawing His Attention

Milk And Roses Moisturizing Cleanser

Hey tribe, I have finally done it.  Done what? You may be asking…

I created a face cleanser with roses, milk and froth.  I’m so excited about this cleanser.  I’ve personally been using this cleanser for about a year now.  It took me about a year to get the consistency just right.  So, I’m going to be honest, this isn’t what you buy at the dollar store or drug store and if you’re a client or part of the tribe, you know, every product with my name on it starts in my kitchen, before it goes to our lab in Canada and… I did it!

How to use the Milk & Roses Moisturizing Cleanser

This is the easiest, it only requires 2 things to get that all over glow and to be clear, we are doing this because Fall is here.  I don’t care what your calendar says.  If you notice, it’s getting dark at 6:30PM, mosquitos have come out, and the pollen count is high.  As far as I’m concerned, Fall has arrived.  As far as your skin is concerned, Fall is here.  

The 2 things you need:

  • your pore cricket which is your silicone exfoliator
  • your cleanser

How to apply the Milk & Roses Moisturizing Cleanser

You are going to literally run water over your pore cricket and swirl it around in your cleanser.  The container is so big that this soap is going to last you a long time.  I want you to remember that this is a milk soap so you’ll not want to look for it to be too sudsy, it literally is a rose and milk cleanser and it’s going to feel like you are putting lotion on your skin. 

Once you swirl the pore cricket along the cleanser, you may have to apply a tiny bit of pressure, to get the pore cricket to pick up the cleanser.  Once you have cleanser on the pore cricket, you’ll want to gently scrub the entirety of your face with the pore cricket.  I use hot water whenever I do this.

You’ll want to apply the pore cricket to your face in a circular motion around your face, starting on one cheek and moving in a circular motion all the way around your face.  It’s not going to be foaming, and while cleaning your face with this cleanser, you may question if you are actually cleansing your skin.  The answer is: YES 

Many clients are used to that squeaky clean, feel, but with this cleanser, that’s not what you’re looking for.  After applying the cleanser all over your face, take a clean, wet towel, and wipe your face.  I think the scent of the goat milk and the rose petals is divine.

If you know me, you know I love a good cleanse.  This is really good for removing makeup.  Now, if you have a pore cricket, you’ll want to keep it sanitized.  I personally send mine through the dishwasher, but you can scrub it down, soak it in barbicide, whatever you choose.   Just keep it sanitized and keep it clean.  If you got it from us, it comes with its own clear case.  Slide it right back into that case when it’s not in use.

The contents of this Milk & Roses Moisturizing Cleanser

Goat milk – it allows a creamier consistency, it’s gentle on the skin, adds nourishment (vitamin A – anti aging and Selenium – helps prevent dry skin), includes AHA (Alpha-hydroxy acids) and therefore is a gentle exfoliant.  

Rose Petals – loaded with antioxidants, moisturizing and great for dry skin, has anti-inflammatory benefits and soothes redness.  It contains antidepressant effects therefore enhances your mood and has anti-aging effects.  

Here’s the thing, during Fall you pick up a lot of things; a lot of dirt and debris.  As the season changes, your skin changes and when you cleanse your skin, you want to know that you are  picking up that fuzz, and debris and removing it from your skin.  You also want to know that you are hydrating your skin (goat milk benefit).  

If you catch the video (on Instagram), you’ll see the large container for the cleanser; it will probably last you the entire Fall season, which at $45 (includes a pore cricket) it’s quite a deal.  Certainly make sure you order yours today.   

This is an amazing, beautiful product, and my clients will tell you, I’m all about selling product that will last that makes your skin feel hydrated.  I hope you love this cleanser as much as I do!

Please feel free to contact us with any of your skincare questions, to schedule a virtual consultation, or to inquire about other services we offer.   You may reach us by phone at (615) 884-6744 or by email at estheticsbypbrown@yahoo.com.

Get Glowing Skin with our Pumpkin Latte Facial

Get Glowing Skin with our Pumpkin Latte Facial 

We’re bringing it back again this year, our Pumpkin Spice Latte Facial.  Just like last year, this facial includes one of the most popular items of the fall and holiday season: Pumpkin and – everyone seems to love a good Pumpkin Latte.  

3 Steps that Highlight Our Pumpkin Latte Facial 

As with all our facials, this one adds nutrients and vitamins that will make your skin glisten as we nourish, treat, and hydrate your skin.   

NOURISH

We introduce the nourishment: the Vitamin C of the Pumpkin, the Lactic Acid of the Almond Milk, the Caffeine/ Cellular Renewal Rate Booster of the coffee, into the facial.

TREAT

When we treat, we’ll do so one or two ways: 

  • Through microdermabrasion where we push those ingredients into the skin while resurfacing it. 
  • Through dermaplaning where we remove the dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and anything that would impede penetration of those nutrients and products.

The treatment modality is simply a booster to the nutrients and ingredients that we’re putting on your skin.  The body will absorb those nutrients and go into it’s natural healing process. 

HYDRATE

Often, the biggest threat to the aging process is – lack of hydration to the skin.  Therefore, your cells are dry so they’re sluggish; they’re not producing as much of a lubricant as they need.  Cells can lack the amount of oil they need (dry skin) or the amount of water they need (dehydrated skin), so it causes the cells to struggle to complete the cellular turnover process.  

So… when we do the Pumpkin Latte Facial, we of course – by its name – aim to invoke the warm fuzzies that come with a cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte.  Yet, most importantly, we aim to reinforce those components of nourishment into your skin, that will give you a beautiful Fall – Winter glow without slowing down the cellular renewal cycle of the skin.  

Be sure to schedule an appointment and pamper yourself with this seasonal addition.  The Pumpkin Latte Facial packs an added flow of moisture leaving your skin evenly balanced and radiant for your holiday celebrations.

Again, please feel free to contact us with any of your skincare questions, to schedule a virtual consultation, or to inquire about other services we offer. You may reach us by phone at (615) 884-6744 or by email at estheticsbypbrown@yahoo.com.

Chemical Peel for Vaginal Hyperpigmentation

Hey Tribe, this question was sent through my social media, I’m sharing in case anyone else has this question. 

QUESTION:

What can I do that is not as painful as laser treatments to remove hyperpigmentation from under my arms and my bikini area?  Is there a treatment that’s not high in cost and will it also treat ingrown hairs? 

ANSWER: YES

Most estheticians will do a variation of what we call our body peel.  This actually is something that I do (about) quarterly – because I have eczema on my body and I don’t want to look like a reptile.  

IT’S A BODY PEEL

So, yes, we do a body peel where we lay low-grade acids, like a Pumpkin Enzyme Acid, or I’ve done a Hibiscus Acid or an Apple Wine acid, something that is gentle enough to peel your intimate area but strong enough to lift up the hyperpigmentation.  We love anything that contains thorazine prohibitors, which will help prevent you from having hyperpigmentation during the healing process.  

72-HOUR WAIT

I will say, this as a disclaimer.  If you want to have relations as my grandmother would say, it is not the time within 3 days after this peel.  You don’t want to, because you are shedding, there’s nothing sexy about it.  Now, once you pass the 72-hour mark, your bikini area will look like it was poured from Jesus (so to say – smile).  Also, if you suffer from ingrown hairs, we’ve thinned out that excess ingrown hair that is kind of holding that ingrown hair in or that Folliculitis in and it’s going to slide out like pure butter.  And it’s going to even out your skin tone, those same problems happen up under your arm that will happen in the bikini area, so it’s not just let’s hold here.

PUMPKIN BENEFITS

To be clear, Glycolic Acid in my opinion is a sand blaster.  My exception to that rule, is if your Glycolic Acid comes from a natural derivative such as aloe or pumpkin.  While we love pumpkin lattes, pumpkin is the perfect enzyme to use on the bikini area, it will give you a flawless glow, even skin, reduce ingrown hairs and all jokes aside, tribe, it’s amazing!

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.
