Yesterday, I told you about the facial that saved my life…skin, I mean, my skin (and my life).
Today, the green skincare expert and owner of Green Revolution Skin Studio in Bethesda, Maryland, answers our most burning questions about the best green/organic products, DIYs you can try at home, how to kick the crap out of your acne (worked for me!), and more. Not only is Laura a licensed aesthetician, chakra healer and certified in lymphatic massage therapy; she also freakin’ rules and has some serious zingers in this interview. I think you’ll enjoy it!
Bonus = scroll to the bottom for a special offer so you can meet Laura yourself and experience her truly transformative facials/services. Without further ado…!
Can you discuss your philosophy about the spiritual aspects of skincare? I love that your treatments incorporate meditation, aromatherapy, and other holistic relaxation methods.
Our skin is the biggest organ of the body.
It is important to understand that internal imbalance and turbulence is always reflected on the outside skin.
Stress and tension from every day busy life causes our bodies to act crazy. Stress shakes up the endocrine system which then is responsible for hormones to act up. Funky hormones affect our sebaceous glands which then overproduce oil or go into a drought. We can eat all the right organic food, use the most expensive clean products, but guess what? That is not enough to give you healthy, young, clear skin.
Healthy skin actually starts with peace and balance on the inside. I incorporate these holistic and spiritual rituals to essentially enhance the results of the treatments. Inviting my clients to enjoy the beauty of being present and giving the opportunity to fill up with peace and love, I hope to inspire them to incorporate these inner peace rituals into their everyday lives in addition to their regular skincare routines.
My philosophy is: the combination of internal and external self-care WILL result in beautiful, young, vibrant skin.
