Relationship with Aesthetician Key for Skin Health

Women have lots of important relationships in their lives, but one that often gets overlooked is the relationship with an aesthetician.

“The skin is the largest organ on people’s bodies, and most people don’t know how to listen to it,” Enrichment Holistic Skin Health owner Beverly Meadows said. “It will speak to you just like any other organ when it gets sick.”

Meadows, who studied at the Aveda Institute in Las Vegas, recommended visiting a licensed aesthetician every six to eight weeks, depending on a person’s age and the condition of their skin. Clients looking to clear up adult acne issues, however, might see someone like Meadows as often as once a month at her new, 2,300 square foot location at 2780 Horizon Ridge Parkway in Henderson.

“It’s all about setting goals for your skin,” Meadows said. “And then working together to achieve them.”

Those goals could be things like improving skin tone, texture, antiaging or mitigating the appearance of old acne scars. But the homework is just as important as regular facials. To keep her clients at Enrichment Holistic Skin Health on track, Meadows stole an idea from her local dentist.

“You know that box they have at the dentist for kids to pick out toys if they’re good,” Meadows said. “I have a little box filled with samples for my clients.”

It’s also her goal to make sure her clients’ skincare regimes are affordable and work with their lifestyle. A five-step regime might work for some people, but others just aren’t going to bother. Meadows said it’s important to meet people where they’re at.

“I like to keep their homecare really affordable,” Meadows said.

Meadows also teaches her clients about natural skincare treatments like witch hazel and diluted apple cider vinegar. None of her lotions, oils or treatments at Enrichment Holistic Skin Health contains dyes, unnatural fragrances or parabens.

“There’s so much out there that Mother Nature gave us to heal our skin,” Meadows said.

Even the chemical peels are done with natural ingredients like fruit enzymes.

But not everything on the Internet that’s touted as a natural fix is a good idea. Meadows had a client come to her after taking the advice of a “beauty guru” online to put hydrogen peroxide on her face.

“It bleached her skin in patches,” Meadows said. “It took a year of treatments to correct it.”

Meadows advice was to find out what credentials someone on the Internet has before taking his or her advice. All her employees are licensed and board certified. That’s especially important when it comes to treatments like chemical peels and microderm. Men and women, Meadows said, can really damage their skin if they’re not careful.

Sometimes, though, it’s a simple fix.

Meadows had a client who kept experiencing adult acne. The woman was a professional photographer, and it turned out she wasn’t properly sanitizing her equipment. A little bit of “detective work” and Meadows had the acne mystery solved.

“I absolutely love what I do,” Meadows said. “I want everyone to feel confident in their own skin.”
