About: I have been a Licensed Esthetician since January 2016 and have been dedicated to the field since graduating from Metro Beauty Academy. I have a passion for growing, continuing education as an Associated Skin Care Professional member and frequent student at the International Dermal Institute. I do all that I can to learn about the skin and to tackle different skin issues as well as new facial techniques so I can better accommodate each and every person who comes to me for any treatment. My passion is connecting with others and making everyone not only look good, but feel good in the process.
Fun Fact: I originally come from an art background, which explains my love for doing makeup (and also expressing myself creatively through my sense of style). Growing up, I was more into arts and literature and although I’m still very keen on both subjects, I’ve found a love for running, yoga, and weightlifting that started in my early twenties.
Another fun fact about me: I’m currently engaged to my boyfriend of 10 years and we have two “furbabies” (cats) named Desi and Daniel.
Favorite Products: Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Hydration Booster because it’s SO versatile and great for almost all skin types. It’s key ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid, helps to bind moisture to the skin and aids in plumping up the skin along with a blend of Evening Primrose Oil, Coconut Juice, and Watermelon extract. The booster is perfect for any moisturizer, foundation, or concealer. I use it in my makeup routine by adding a few droplets to my concealer to avoid creasing and to avoid looking cakey.
DIY Self-care Tip: Always, always, always cleanse your skin at night. Makeup wipes are not enough. If you’re concerned about damaging your skin and/or aging your skin, it’s so important that you take the time to properly wash away any makeup, excess oil, or environmental pollutants on your face and neck. Find a good pH-balanced cleanser designed for your skin type to really avoid disrupting your skin’s barrier function. If you are unsure of what to use, schedule a facial appointment and ask your Esthetician for recommendations.

AME is super excited to offer our Micro-Surge treatment. Dillon, an AME esthetician and educator describes micro-surge:
This is your ultimate “quickie” that will leave you with refreshed, smooth and deeply hydrated skin. In a cool 20 minutes we will cleanse, exfoliate with microderm, apply a gentle peel appropriate for all skin types and neutralize and hydrate with an anti-aging peptide milk. Your skin will be bright, supple and glowing and surging moisture for days! Perfect for a night out, to cure your winter blues or maybe just take your first step towards a higher performance skincare routine. Consultation required for clients who have not previously had microdermabrasion. Our micro-surge peel is also available in both our Physician’s RX and Mega Peel Facials.

One of our fabulous estheticians, Debbie has some great holiday skin care advice for you:
“It’s all About that Face, no Trouble!
In light of the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping, shipping and schlepping, the holidays truly are the most wonderful time of year. Generosity abounds, goodwill towards mankind seems effortless. However as important as finding the perfect gift, so is allowing yourself the much needed time to refresh your skin and to give your face the attention it deserves!
Dehydration, dark circles, and tired stress lines are in part due to the hectic pace we keep. Constant indoor/outdoor temperature fluctuation wreaks havoc on your complexion. For your skin to look its best be sure to schedule the time for a professional facial. As your esthetician, we will assess your immediate needs and provide your FACIAL fix as well as help you with your long-term aging remedies. Be sure to drink more water during the winter months because the body works harder to stay warm and uses up its moisture reservoir. Also, consider a humidifier* in your bedroom as this will make a huge improvement on your skin’s moisture retention. Above all, be sure to use a high quality night cream… it’s the most important time for your skin to replenish and restore lost nutrients preparing for yet another day of holiday havoc! 🙂 “
*I use this humidifier and I love it. I definitely notice a difference since using it. Just make sure to clean your humidifier on a regular basis.
Debbie’s top choices for night time care:
Click HERE to view our many facials and then call us to schedule your facial with Debbie or any of our other talented estheticians. I can tell you from experience, you will not be disappointed! My personal favorite is the Mega Peel Facial but your esthetician will help you decide which facial best fits your needs.
I would also recommend the Clarisonic (we carry a variety of colors). I LOVE it! My mom gave me the Clarisonic for Christmas one year and it is by far one of my most favorite gifts. I use it everyday and I love how much it has improved my skin. Feel free to ask Debbie or any of our other estheticians if you would like to learn more about the clarisonic or any of our other skin care products.
I made these really yummy cookies for Thanksgiving and more since then just to enjoy at home. I can’t say they were a huge hit with my T-Day crowd (I think the pies and other sweets upstaged them) but I love them. They’re not terribly sweet which I like. You can make them plain or dipped in chocolate. The chocolate adds the perfect amount of sweetness. The ingredients are so great, I’ll enjoy a plain one (or chocolate dipped depending on my mood) with breakfast.
Who’s making cookies? What kinds? Please let me know if you have a recipe I should try.
Speaking of sweets, if you missed the post on our FB page about sneaky sugar, check it out here. Yet another reason showing you how important it is to read your food labels carefully. Helping you navigate these sneaky encounters is one of the many benefits of having a Health Coach. As always, feel free to contact me with any sugar, label reading, or other health and wellness questions you might have. I enjoy hearing from you! Alyssa@www.amesalonandspa.comby
