IS THERE A CAUSE FOR SKIN PROBLEMS THAT ALL SKIN TYPES HAVE IN COMMON?
Wrong care and too much care are frequent causes of skin problems. Ingredients such as alcohol, emulsifiers, fragrances or preservatives irritate the skin. Frequent changes of products or too frequent application of creams can also cause skin irritations. I advise my customers according to their skin type and can thus create a good, vital and healthy complexion together with them.
WHICH STEPS DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR SOMEONE WITH NORMAL SKIN?
Normal skin is smooth and soft, fine pored, well supplied with blood and easy to care for. Acid mantle, sebaceous glands and blood circulation function ideally, the moisture balance is intact. It feels very soft to the touch, has hardly any greasy areas and has a balanced effect.
So that normal skin does not quickly become dry or sensitive, the fat and moisture balance must be kept permanently in balance. The basis of daily care for normal skin consists of cleansing and care cream. This protects the skin from drying out and gives it moisture. I recommend my customers to clean their skin thoroughly in the morning and in the evening and to always remove the facial cleansing products thoroughly. The last traces of cleansing products are removed in the last step by toner. This also prepares the skin for the subsequent care.
HOW DO YOU HELP YOUR CLIENTS?
I want to accompany them through life in a relaxed and radiant way. As an experienced beautician I can do something to make you feel more comfortable in your skin and gain a loving and approving look for yourself. In cosmetics, the skin gives me more indications of the customer’s condition than the first glance reveals. These messages can be analysed and form the starting point for my sensitive advice and treatment.
But every day I meet people with different skin problems. Internal or external stress, but also psychological problems can be the cause or consequence of skin problems. It is important to recognize the interaction between skin and psyche. In my work as a psychological consultant and coach I would like to accompany my clients in realizing their wishes, goals and visions. My goal is to bring imbalances back into harmonious balance. My secret recipe is a holistic treatment concept that gets under your skin.
The main focus of my treatment is working with a purely biological enzymatic peeling. The effect of the enzymes gently removes the dead skin cells. A careful cleansing of the facial skin and a gentle facial massage support the sensitive skin so that it becomes more resistant. A facial massage not only caresses the skin, but also the soul. Tiny tactile corpuscles under the skin (receptors) absorb the most delicate stimuli from the outside and pass them on to the brain.
WHAT ARE YOUR 3 TIPS FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN IN SUMMER?
A sunscreen with high SPF protects against sunburn and promotes an even tan.
Even with pre-tanned skin you should use a sun cream and re-tan every 2 hours – even when the sky is cloudy!
I would also recommend a relaxing summer cosmetic treatment, like my luxury treatment “Perfect”, as the skin now needs a lot of moisture.
YOU HAVE ALREADY TESTED THE BINU SOAPS. WHICH IS YOUR FAVOURITE AND WHY?
I have now tested two of the BINU soaps and am very enthusiastic. My skin feels wonderfully clean and soft. I have very sensitive skin, but I tolerate the soaps very well.
WHAT IS YOUR SECRET TIP FOR MORE FRESHNESS?
For many years I have been using almost exclusively the 100% natural aromatic essences from Decléor. The special ability of these precious, volatile oils is that they contain the essential and most active part of the plant. A wonderful effect for my skin function and mental mood. Beauty concentrates and balancing night balm products bring my stressed skin back into balance.
Especially in hectic times I try to treat myself to small time-outs and enjoy the silence. I enjoy small things. I do a lot of sports, eat a healthy diet, sin occasionally, drink a lot of water and radiate through my love for my job alone.
