It’s officially starting to feel like fall here in SoCal and I know there are so many of you, like me, who are feeling it in their skin.

If you are an esthetician or own and spa this blog is for YOU!
Retail is such a huge part of being an esthetician. Once I perfected my selling technique, which isn't really “selling” it’s more sharing what I love and also helping my clients achieve theirskincaregoals. I realized my retail shelves needed perfecting too! They should look, clean, organized and HELLO!!.... Beautiful.
Here are my favorites for styling your retail shelves andcold rollers
I have struggled with my under eye area my whole life, thanks genetics. I can sleep ten hours, drink a gallon of water and unfortunately I still have darkness around my eyes. Until, I metOpti Crystal. I thought I had tried every tick of the trade! ButOptiwas a GAME CHANGER and let me tell you why.
Let talk biz! My other favorite subject besidesskincare. No I never went to school for business but I was lucky enough to grow up in a household where my parents are self made, successful business owners and from a very young age, I knew i wanted to be just like that!
Alright, alright, alright! (in my best Matthew McConaughey Voice) I am breaking down my 5 Best Sellers and fav products fromCosmedix.
A little about me. I’m a licensed esthetician of 14 years, owner and creator of Glow Skincare and co-host of Beauty Biz Bffs Podcast, check out episode 7 where Ryan Christopher talks all aboutCosmedix! Anyhow,Cosmedixwas introduced to me about 10 year ago when I was firs opening my business and I have been in love ever since! No seriously though, I loveCosmedix.

Hi you guys! I am SO excited to be here with you for this blog take-over! My name is Kristen and I own Holistic with Kristen, a holistic and integrative health coaching practice based out of Orange County, CA. I am most excited to collab with Kasey and Glow Skincare because like you, I’ve been a devotee of not only Kasey’s facials (which I miss so much during Q), but also her chic IG aesthetic and warm personality. Today, I’m going to teach you all the things I’ve learned through my training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as well as my own wellness journey and lots of trial and error, in order to achieve glowing skin through the foods you eat. It’s so important that we care for our skin externally, but also internally as well!
Confidence in and out of the treatment room is so important. Yes we need to be a skilled practitioner of our craft. You need to know skin types, products, ingredients, just to name a few but after you get all your technical skills mastered you need to remember that, #1 you're in control in the treatment room, you are the LICENSED professional, and went to school for this! The confidence should exude from within, and that's one of the key factors that keeps you clients coming back for more.
If you know me then you KNOW I'm not a crazy OCD person, I typically talk about taking action over perfection but at the same time I am particular when it comes to certain things, like making my(treatment) bed.
You guys are always asking for more ways to make money, how to incentivize your clients and keep them coming back for more! Here are a few easy and fun ways I have done that through out my 10 years owning Glow Skincare and 15 in the industry.

If you know me then you know I love crystals. I keep them in my home, spa and even in my treatment room. I love them for their beauty and their energy. I thought I would have my friend and fellow Esthetician, Alex Sands, owner ofSkin Craftbreak down why crystals are so amazing as well as how to get started. She offers custom curated crystal boxes that are amazing for home + spa. If you are interested in getting on her waitlist headHERE. xoxo Kasey
When setting up a photoshoot with small-business clients, this question comes up often.I totally get it. The idea of setting up a shoot can seem daunting if you have never done it before, especially if you are a new business.

You need experience to get a job as an esthetician, but how do you get a job without experience, right? Here are 3 ways to land a job, no matter what level you are at. This applies to aspiring estheticians all the way to someone with 10+ years of experience.
It’s day how many of social distancing and self quarantine? Fine, I can work from home, shop from home and workout from home, but how am I supposed to get my facial from home? Well, if you are anything like me, you rely heavily on your regularly scheduled facial for your skin as well as your well being. This week we, along with most other spas and beauty studios nationwide, had to close Glow Skincare. This meant cancelling all the scheduled appointments, including my own. Now, some may wait it out and book an appointment ASAP but some, myself included, have no intention on waiting anything out. Skincare = Life. So I am going to give you some tips to do your very own Glow Skincare Signature Facial from the comfort of your quarantined bathroom.
What if I told you that there is a skincare tool that everyone can use? Something that is helpful to all skin types. Easy enough to learn to use at any age. Affordable for every income. Lightweight and travel friendly. As if that’s not good enough, it’s practically indestructible. Now if that doesn’t make a great investment, I don’t know what does. So what is this magical tool? It’s a Glow Skincare Cold Roller!
Have you noticed that you can’t open a magazine or scroll through your feed without hearing the hottest new buzzwords, “LED light therapy”? You’ll see these bright red and blue lights everywhere from your gym to your doctors office. So, there must be something to it, not just a trend, right? RIGHT!

It’s easy to get confused or even overwhelmed with all the different facial services out there today. When it comes to determining what your skin needs here are some things that you need to consider; what issues you have with your skin, what you are trying to target specifically, and what results are you looking to obtain. Keep in mind, you have to be realistic as well. As nice as it sounds, one facial isn’t going to solve all of your skin problems. So when it all comes down to choosing the right facial for you here are several things to keep in mind...
Let me set the tone for you, by saying I started my esthetics journey before iPhones and Instagram were put on this planet. Which sadly means I don't have pictures from the beginning of my journey, trust me I even tried to find my old Myspace account but sadly no luck.
Yup you heard me right. I'm a skincare JUNKIE. Yes, I’m an esthetician and by default I love all things skincare and beauty. So, of course when I moved into my new home I knew I was going to create the bathroom of my dreamssssss.
There are TONS of questions I get asked on a regular basis, one of them is “Kasey, what’s your favorite steamer?”. Let me tell you! I have been through 500,000,000 steamers in my career as an esthetician and have finally found my favorite one. It’s the KATANA facial steamer with aromatherapy from SkinAct and it will change your life!
Okay, you guys know by now that CHILL is not a word I would use to describe myself, like at all. Running multiple businesses, being a good wife, and making sure Ripley the cat is fed, really takes it out of me. By the end of the day I am “tired-wired” and need to find a way to decompress and relax. Well, I’ve figured it out! I’ve been testing out Winged Women’s Wellness for the past 6 months and I can say that it’s Glow approved!
I don’t know about you, but I love to be outside; walks, patios, the beach, you get my point. What I don’t love is damaging my skin while enjoying the outdoors. Growing up in Southern California, being tan was just a way of life. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a little color aon their skin? I have always spent a lot of my time outside and my olive toned skin was proof of that. It was easy for me to bronze up without burning. What I didn’t know was that even though I was tanning and NOT burning, I was still damaging and prematurely aging my skin. No good.
One cleanse, two cleanse, three cleanse, four? How many times is too many times to cleanse your skin? Well, if you haven't jumped on the double cleanse bandwagon yet, now is the time! As so many of us are looking for ways to fill our time these days, why not incorporate something new into your skincare routine? Cleaning your face properly is such an important part of you caring for your skin. Think of it this way, if you’re “washing your face” but not really cleansing it properly then it makes it difficult for your serums and other products to work as well as they should.
The Perfect Facial Towel is here! Glow Towel™-patent pending, were created out of necessity. As an esthetician I was always on the hunt for a soft, yet durable towel to use in my treatment rooms that covered the face, neck and décolleté. For years I used multiple and towels, that were ruff and filled my laundry basket to the brim. So...I decided to make my own. Our Glow Towels™ are made for estheticians by an esthetician, so we can vouch for them. These super soft microfiber towels are my go-to in the treatment room. They cover the face, neck and décolleté and have the perfect slit to wrap comfortably around the face. Great for removing all masks, scrubs, cleansers and the best part is these save you time on laundry and money.
