My Office is Closing End of June

Posted by on May 2, 2022 in eNews | Comments Off on My Office is Closing End of June

It’s with mixed feelings that I announce I’ll be closing my studio by the end of June and will no longer provide skincare services. To you my wonderful clients and friends, thank you so much for entrusting me with your faces and well-being, as well as your children’s, and for all we’ve accomplished and shared over the years. The joy and reward my profession has brought me is immense, all because of you who are reading this and many others I’ve seen and known the last 31 years!

I’ll still have my MN Advanced Practice license and will keep my accounts with skincare companies. I’ll be able to help you by consulting and continuing your home care, and taking care of your orders, if you choose. We can consult on the phone, email, or Zoom. I’ll keep up with education and classes, send out newsletters and I can happily state my passion for skincare isn’t diminishing! It’s just time to do other things now too. I’m excited for the next chapter.

In May I’ll be gathering referrals, personally checking out service providers and will share a list in another newsletter as soon as it’s complete, by early June if not before. I’d appreciate input or recommendations from you too. I wouldn’t be where I am without your loyalty and support. With a full heart, I thank you for the opportunities you’ve given me.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

My thanks and endless appreciation,
Marguerite

March 2022 Sales and Specials

Posted by on Mar 19, 2022 in eNews | Comments Off on March 2022 Sales and Specials

Early Spring Greetings to Everyone,

Since my last newsletter I’ve gotten 2 new hips and am cruising along!
I’m trying something new, I won’t have an April Sale this year, instead I’m offering sales when my companies do.

I’m exploring ways to get the word out, if you have preferences and want to offer feedback, I’d appreciate it.

GlyMed has flash site-wide sales, which are great and monthly protocols at 20% off, often their new products.

This month Image has 15% off everything through March, and 20% off a new item
Restoring Power C Serum 1 oz bottle, 20% off for $92 (reg $115)

  • 20% THD (tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate) a stable Vit C, not new but this is a high %
  • .5% Ferulic Acid
  • Vit E

It has a ginger extract antioxidant for wrinkles and fading hyperpigmentation. It
also contains a 7-weight hyaluronic acid complex and glycerin for a dewy finish.  I’ve been testing it and can’t see fading yet but it’s definitely firming, very hydrating, good on sensitive skin. For info sheet, click here

Can it really compete with Skin Ceuticals CE Ferulic? Yes! For a comparison of L-Ascorbic Acid (in CE Ferulic) to THD click here

Other favorites are the Bio-Peptide Crème $67 on sale, Brightening Exfoliating Cleanser $32 on sale, check with me for your favorite.

Please get all Image sale orders to me by March 25. I’m out of town 3/28-4/4

And new from Skin Ceuticals: they’ve replaced Phyto+ with Phyto A+ Brightening Treatment:
1 oz $105 through March, $110 April 1, get $10 off your 1st bottle

It’s a light-weight moisture gel-crème with brightening, clarifying and texture-smoothing ingredients, made for sensitive skin.

This arrives today. I can’t wait to test this, their before and after photos show
significant fading and improved texture including pore size.

Skin Ceuticals is raising prices on April 1, most increases are less than $5,
Physical Fusion SPF 50 increases by only 50 cents

Please send questions or concerns

Spring Equinox is this Sunday, Happy Spring, Everyone!

My thanks and endless appreciation,
Marguerite

Valentine Greetings and Specials

Posted by on Feb 14, 2021 in eNews | Comments Off on Valentine Greetings and Specials

Lake Harriet Rose Garden

We’re deep into freezing temps here in MN, and that dries out your skin.

Promotions this month can help you keep your face supple and hydrated, while being uplifted by the wonderful aromas!

Jakare’s February Special is 15% off these 3:

  • Liquid Gold Oil Booster, this facial oil features Neroli from the Orange Blossom. Add a small amount to any moisturizer for a richer feel and dewy finish
  • Hyaluronic Acid Booster, I add 2 pumps to my moisturizer year-round. Every skincare line has a hyaluronic serum, but Jakare’s is the best I’ve found!
  • Triple Eye and Neck Serum is aloe-based with glycerin and features Bulgarian Rose oil, I’m getting 1 to test, and giving samples
  • Get prices and all the info at https://jakare.com/shop/

Image’s A C E Serum, with 3 forms of Vit C, plus Vit E and Vit A now has Hyaluronic Acid added to it, I could tell the difference right away!

Image is coming out with new products this month and sale prices on their whole line, including free drop ships $100 or more. If you’ve been debating about ordering Image, now is the time! Please get back to me with your needs.

My new favorite antioxidant serum combo is GlyMed’s CBD Booster serum, then the A C E from Image. Research shows that CBD is stronger than both Vit C and E, considered the gold standard for decades. I use the CBD after every peel in the treatment room, for its healing and calming effects.

The Power of the Facial Mist ~ misting adds hydration and feeds your skin with active ingredients, refreshes you with aroma

  • use on clean skin, follow with your routine
  • after routine to set makeup or sunscreen, adding dewy glow
  • throughout the day for hydration and antioxidant protection

Specials and Good Wishes

Posted by on Dec 10, 2020 in eNews | Comments Off on Specials and Good Wishes

December Greetings to all,

I hope you and your loved ones are keeping well in body, mind and spirit! I see Light at the end of the tunnel, and Hope for a better year to come.

For those of you choosing not to get facials because of Covid, I support that choice. And we all need good homecare more than ever. I’d love to consult and help you no matter what your skincare priorities are or budget may be.

Special offers this month include:

  • Free December Shipping from Jakare! Plus their fabulous new Skin Polisher and both Enzyme Masque and Rose Masque on sale, each is 15% off https://jakare.com/shop/
  • Free Shipping from Image on orders of $100 or more! and great new size of Vital C Hydrating Serum, twice the size for 20% off at $115 and free shipping
  • Free Shipping on My Skin Buddy plus $25 off for $270.00 Money-back guarantee, great for all skin types, including acne, makes a gold star gift. Research shows that results with LED Light Therapy are cumulative. So using this little device with 3 LED colors, 6 settings, and 4 treatment modes can add up to real benefits! A client whom I see infrequently impressed me recently with her tighter, smoother skin. I thought, “She must have done a medspa procedure.”  But she shared that it’s her Skin Buddy with her cleanser, then Image Retinol cream, used 2 or 3 weeks for 5 minutes per session, that’s made the difference. Even her kids have noticed!
  • My remaining Inventory is discounted till year’s end.  I hope I have what you want!

At the end of this tumultuous year, I send you my very best, with a strong vision for our future. The photo was taken on a walk. I was sharing with friends about a close, long-time client who recently died and how special she was. We looked out and saw this across the bay, like a Light from Heaven. It looks like the hope I feel and wish for you too.

With gratitude to all of you and deep appreciation for your support,

Always,

Marguerite

Fall to Winter Tips and News

Posted by on Oct 27, 2020 in eNews | Comments Off on Fall to Winter Tips and News

Hello Clients and Friends!

All Vital C products from Image Skincare are 15% off through this Saturday! The Vital C hydrating antioxidant line is their best seller, and clients love them. Take advantage of this surprise sale and order with me by Friday night please.

Image will continue with free drop shipping for all orders over $100, through December 2020! This has been wonderfully supportive but of course I can send orders of any amount to you, too.

Want to do a home facial? Jakare’s October Special introduces a new product called MicroDerma Polisher, it promises the “smoothest, silkiest skin you’ll ever have!” and has 5 Star customer reviews. 3 oz jar is $62
https://jakare.com/product/microderma-polisher-new/

Additionally, they’ve created a remedy serum for break outs on all skin types from mask-wearing. It features Zinc, Cinnamon Bark and Carrot Seed Oil, in a base of Lavender Hydrosol and Aloe. Here’s the info:
https://jakare.com/product/active-remedy-protecting-serum/

If you’ve had trouble with stiff or squirting Jakare pumps, they’ve changed them. If you need replacements, just let me know.

With the beautiful Fall colors we’ve enjoyed this year, we’re ushered into Peel Season. I can treat the effects your outdoor exposure with stronger peels than we do during Summer. This is followed by infusing the skin with nourishment, firming and healing using microcurrent/myotonology, My Skin Buddy, and an LED Light Therapy canopy. It’s the custom treatment cocktail I mix for you that makes the machine and devices work!

I’ll continue to maintain the stringent cleaning and disinfection stated in my Covid Preparedness Plan. Ventilation is key with Covid safety, and I’m keeping the air moving, fresh and clean in the studio. The window will be cracked open but you’ll be warm and snug.
If you want to consult from home, I’m available. The skincare you give yourself is more important than facials. I love being in touch with all of you and talking skincare or catching up. I want to stay connected.

Year round and especially in Winter, I recommend calming and healing Calendula Oil from Pranarom for your cuticles and finger tips (heals cracks too), dry skin under nostrils from nose-blowing, or adding a drop or 2 to your face moisturizer. It’s available at Lakewinds and Lunds/Byerlys, on sale now for 20% off. I found a whipped Shea Butter lip balm from Evan Healy at the co-op, too.

May you stay healthy in body, mind and spirit, and find the inspiration you need.

My very best to all of you, thank you so much,

Marguerite

September 2020 News and Specials

Posted by on Aug 24, 2020 in eNews | Comments Off on September 2020 News and Specials

Greetings to all,
 
September 1st will mark 3 months since we reopened and it’s going well!

Initially, services were abbreviated but quickly expanded to full facials in June.

Stringent Covid protocols continue as part of my Preparedness Plan.

I wear a face shield and a mask while the client’s mask is off, as required by MN DEED.

My suite offers ample ventilation, the HEPA filter runs constantly, and the HVAC, tower fan and window help keep clean air flowing.
 
The September Sale is coming up, with 15% off retail products, including Jakare, Image, GlyMed,and Skin Ceuticals.  You’re welcome to place your orders starting now!

Image Skincare is giving us free drop shipping on all orders $50 or more, through December!

A $30 price increase on My Skin Buddy is effective September 12, new price will be $295.  I still love using this device, in facials and at home, and recommend it to everyone!

Now available in black, too and their Money Back Guarantee makes it a risk-free purchase and a lovely gift.
 
GlyMed Plus has free drop shipping through Aug 31.  I’ll advance the Sept sale price on orders placed Aug 24-31.
 
Clients who prefer to pick up orders certainly can still do so. And I ship USPS Priority Mail.

I’m always available to consult and help you with your home care, and welcome your questions and feedback.
 
Milla is moving full time to Yantar, where she’s been doing the most amazing microcurrent facelifts!

And, when the borders open again in her home country, she and Peter will return to live there.

I wish her the very best, always and appreciate all she’s taught me.
 
As we all navigate through this historic time, know how much I appreciate each of you.

For those who have come back to see me, it’s so great to be together again!

For those who choose to pass on coming, know that I understand and support you.

For all of you, I hold your best interests as first and foremost, and I continue to affirm that we’ll get through this.

And in many good ways, we’ll never be the same.
 
My Best,
Marguerite Hedren

We’re Opening Soon!

Posted by on May 26, 2020 in eNews | Comments Off on We’re Opening Soon!

Dear Clients and Friends,

After deep consideration and research, we’ll be reopening next Monday June 1!

Our facial salon will likely be doing this differently than many hair salons.  Because of the close proximity face to face with our clients, we’ll be doing shorter services, 45-60 minutes. You’ll wear a face mask through some part of your service (exceptions will be clients with medical reasons). Each client’s priorities will determine how we use your appointment time. I know we can make this work and achieve great results!

We’ll meet you at the door, please wear your mask. We have a touchless infrared thermometer to check your temperature. We’ll clean and disinfect your shoes or offer you our new sandals. If you feel any symptoms, don’t hesitate to reschedule, even if it’s last minute. We’ll understand. The MDH Visitor Health Screening Checklist is available for your review through this link. Water cups will not be available in the studio.

If you’d like to buy skincare, please let me know in advance. My inventory is low right now. Though you can trust that we’re stocked with fabulous products for your services!

All of this will evolve, as our studio and our community moves through reopening business and activities. Next week’s new protocols will change in response to our continued research and what happens around us. As always, I welcome your questions or comments.

We’re excited and so looking forward to seeing you again in person! Until then, please accept our best wishes for your health and well-being.

Marguerite and Milla

New Re-Open Date is May 18

New Re-Open Date is May 18

Dear Clients and Friends,

We miss you! Our studio has been closed for services for 7 weeks now. Monday May 18, is our current date to reopen and we’re booking clients now.  We understand that we must all continue to be flexible and careful. I will reopen when I determine it’s safe to do so, and will proceed with caution.

Honestly, I’ve been thinking long and hard on how we’re going to do this.  I’m following our global health crisis very closely, referring to official scientific resources including the CDC, US epidemiologists, and the office of MN Gov Tim Walz.

I have always been diligent about safety and sanitation, respectful of the laws that govern my license and my studio. But be assured we will be employing significantly heightened disinfection practices and safety procedures upon reopening. I’m working on our Covid-19 Preparedness Plan that follows guidelines from the CDC, MDH, and our licensing board, which also works closely with the governor’s administration.  

Our plan so far partially includes:

* scheduled time between each and every client for deep cleaning

*we’ll wear masks, gloves, and possibly face shields through each service

*HEPA filtering unit will be in use, and turned up between clients

This plan is in progress and more will follow in a future email.

Your voice is paramount to us! Please respond to this email with your input. Clients must feel safe and comfortable to return, and some of you may have special needs to ensure that. We are open to hearing from you!

And we so look forward to seeing you again, and catching up!! We know how anxious some of you are to receive your facials, our professional treatments, and a chance to relax.

 Thank you so very much, Milla and I send our very best. Know we’re thinking of all of you, and honoring mothers everywhere for this Mother’s Day.

Contact Milla at petermillaboros@gmail.com or 828-450-9567

With appreciation,
