#NationalAestheticianDay Spotlight on Aesthetics by Aleah in #Raleigh #SkinCare #HealthySkin

Did you know October 15 is National Aesthetician Day? Time to shine the spotlight on the skincare professionals who keep us looking our best! I recently found an Aesthetician here in Raleigh, NC and wanted to share all about my wonderful experience with Aesthetics By Aleah

Aleah Pinder offers many treatments from facials, microdermabrasion to microblading eyebrows and hair removal services via waxing.  During my visit, I chose to get the ‘Back Purifier’ services. If you are wondering what that is, it’s like a facial for your back. This treatment is decribed as follows per her website: 

I must say I fell asleep on her warm massage table as I found this treatment to be very relaxing. Aleah loves what she does and it shows in not only the care she provides for skin but the extra relaxation techniques she provides as an add on to your service. For example, I chose lemongrass aromatherapy scents to enhance my treatment. I loved her choice of relaxing spa music and her gentle massage strokes during my back purifier service put my body and mind at ease. We all consider putting our best face forward and often neglect other areas, like our back. She thouroughly cleansed, exfoliated and massaged my back during this unique service. I would tell anyone to treat themselves to this experience!   

 

With specialized training and personalized attention, aestheticians bring out the most radiant skin in each of us. Their knowledge and skills often go unrecognized and yet they deliver superior services every day in spas and medical clinics across the country.  Addressing the complex needs of their clientele, aestheticians rejuvenate and polish even the most sensitive skin. So I am happy to celebrate with Aesthetics by Aleah on National Aesthetician Day and recognize all the care and attention she gives to her clients.

    4 WAYS TO TREAT YOUR FACE WITH CARE w/ @KneippUSA #Veganfriendly #Skincare #Facecare #Kneipp

    I have always been low maintenance as far as what I use on my face but the products are always high quality. Kneipp meets my quality standards because their products are plant-based, vegan and free from paraffin, preservatives and silicone oils. The brand has a mission to not only provide effective, innovative and natural products but to teach concepts for health and well-being.

    Since fall temperatures are starting to set in, face care is more important than ever to prevent dryness. With products from Kneipp, you can prepare, activate and cleanse your skin with their wide, moisturizing selection. Here are four ways to treat your face with care using Kneipp:

    1. Kneipp Almond Blossom Cleansing Milk – “Soft Skin” 

    Gently cleanse and remove any make-up without drying out your skin. This cleansing milk contains high-quality, nourishing almond oil and vitamin E, giving the skin a soft, silky appearance. 

    2. Kneipp Lady’s Mantle Face Mask – “Reactivation”

     

    With its combination of natural ingredients and lady’s mantle extract, this face mask provides intensive care. It protects the skin from photoaging and free radicals, while smoothing and pampering the skin with long-lasting moisture and a gentle fragrance. This facial treatment leaves your skin feeling supple, vitalized and revived!

     
    3. Kneipp Almond Blossom Face Tonic – “Soft Skin” 

    This facial toner gently refreshes and cares for cleansed skin while removing any mask or cleansing milk. It is best for all skin types and won’t dry the skin because it does not contain alcohol.

    4. Kneipp Almond Blossom Face Cream – “Soft Skin”

    Well tolerated by sensitive skin, this face cream contains high-quality almond oil, vitamins A and E, rich shea butter and skin-soothing panthenol. This powerful combo of plant-based ingredients makes the skin noticeably smoother and the moisture level of your skin will increase over 24 hours.

    SobeSavvy TipKneipp has products suitable for the whole family and for your whole body! We especially love their variety of body lotions and blends as they  go beyond moisturizing the skin. For example, want a soothing, relaxing moisturizer, get the ‘Lavender’ Body Lotion. Looking to firm and tone your skin while giving it extra nourishment… try “Beautiful Shape’.

    My #SelfCareSaturday |Beauty & Body Care Product Review @NailahsShea #NailahsShea

    Weekends are for ….

    • Longer than normal showers
    • Hot Bubble Baths
    • DIY manis/pedis
    • Washing & Deep Conditioning hair 
    • Detoxifying Face Masks 

    Pretty much I am all into pampering me and enjoying some type of Self Care routine on Saturdays and Sundays. Well today is no different, as I plan to use some sample beauty products I received courtesy  of Nailah’s Shea. *Disclaimer: Although, I received product for review, the opinons are my own

    I first heard of this brand last week at the Triad Womens Blogger Network meetup (see recap video here) in Greensboro, where all attendees received the Nailah’s Shea samples in our swag bags ! Here is what we received: 

    I am a fan of shea butter because of its many benefits and my family personally uses it to help with 

    • Dry Skin 
    • Eczema
    • Preventing stretch marks &wrinkles
    • Minimizing Scars
    • Sunblock
    • Natural Shaving Balm
    • Insect Bites
    • Cuticle Repair

    I was excited to try something new from this all natural Shea butter-based beauty and body care product line.My first impression was how wonderful it smelled! This Zanzibar Spice fragrance is a nice mix of citrus and spicy. It was truly love at first sniff !

    I immediately reached out to Founder & Ceo, Camilia Majette to express my gratitude in receiving this swag and how much of a natural high I was on just from the smell of her product. I felt as if I were transported to somewhere exotic!  To my surprise, she offered to send the 2 Oz jar and matching soap too. Who doesn’t like surprises? How Sweet! 

    Notice the Unscented Oatmeal Shea Butter Soap bar? I immediately thought my husband and/or daughter would love this too ! I was touched when the owner mentioned she thought of my family 🙂 We care to use natural products on our body, so it pleased me to learn that Naiilah’s Shea is a fair trade product and also…….

    I showered this morning using the Citrus Manjano Shea Butter Soap. Talk about your morning pick me up! This soap infused with orange and lemongrass therapeutic-grade organic essential oils had me feeling like that OutKast song “so Fresh and so Clean, Clean”. Check out the packaging and how the soap is handcrafted:

    This soap also smelled oh so good ! I appreciated the balance of fragrances and how it’s not a strong and overpowering scent.I loved how moisturized it made my skin feel. Now time to lock in and seal that moisture by using some of this Jasmine Asmini Whipped Shea Butter

    But first, will it past my sniff test….YES!

    I’ve had some shea butter products that were just too thick and seemed to take forever to absorb into my skin.  Not this one. Its texture was nice and I was able to glide it right onto my skin. You can tell she uses quality ingredients to make her hand-whipped shea butters. It did not leave me feeling too oily and I learned from the website that some of the ingredients used were high in anti-aging properties. Since I will be turning 44 this year, that was good info to know!
    Although this business is based out of Greensboro, products are available to purchase online www.nailahsshea.com.

    SobeSavvy Tip: You don’t have to wait to buy your products online. Tomorrow only, you can visit Nailah’s Shea this Sunday at West Elm in Durham from 12-5p at the Streets at Southpoint Mall! 

    So far I am enjoying this journey to naturally glowing healthy skin. I look forward to continue using the products as part of my self care routine and plan on getting me some exfoliating sugar scrub from Nailah’s Shea. Be sure to follow FacebookTwitterInstagram and Pinterest.
