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

Posted by on May 9, 2020 in eNews | Comments Off on 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.

With appreciation,

Gratitude and New Ideas

Posted by on Apr 17, 2020 in eNews | Comments Off on Gratitude and New Ideas

Dear Clients and Friends,

I so miss seeing all your wonderful faces!!

Thank you so much for your support these last weeks, it’s truly meant the world to me.

I’m now offering consultations via Zoom, email, phone or Face time to help tide you over till we’re back.

With your file on hand, I can coach you, inspire you if you’ve fallen off your home care, answer questions, or just talk.

Plus I’ve got ideas for custom Home Facial Kits, that can include anything we decide on and a small bottle of professional enzyme peel, a special treat just for now.

Jakare’s April special is 20% off their Vit C Collection plus new Fruit Enzyme Mist option.  The wild plum Kakadu has the highest concentration of vitamin C found in any plant/fruit – 100 times that of an orange. I can’t wait to try this, you know how I love mists!

www.jakare.com/on-sale-now/

I love their new Enzyme Masque, too, and think it would be great to add to your Home Kit, perhaps in a smaller amount to try.

Image Skincare has reformulated their popular Daily Hydrating SPF30. They’ve added blue light protection (computer, and device screens) from a pea extract and the new aroma is lighter. The organic Zinc Oxide is now 21%, and certified by Ecocert to be reef-safe and non-nano. Though the consistency isn’t as emollient, I really like it and the added benefits are more important.

New Daily Defense Lip Enhancer combines 11% Zinc Oxide protection plus plumping moisture.

Image has been awesome with support, with free drop shipping to my MN clients, on minimum orders of $50. That continues through April, along with 15% off Prevention+ and Vital C products.

The MN board that governs our licenses and facilities is working with the Walz administration to establish how we’ll safely reopen.

The current date is Monday May 4. I’m guessing we’ll be working wearing masks and gloves. Since our health care providers don’t yet have the supplies they need, that must come first. We still have much to do!

Finally, a week ago on Good Friday, I heard an interview with an Army War Vet/Chaplain at Mt Sinai hospital in New York. I share the link here because it bolstered and reassured me to know people like him are there. I hope it might offer you that, too.

https://www.npr.org/2020/04/10/831480517/chaplain-tries-to-comfort-families-as-covid-19-patients-die-alone

You’re all in our thoughts. Milla and I look forward to seeing you again,

My Best Always,

Marguerite

Services Still Suspended, but…

Posted by on Mar 27, 2020 in eNews | Comments Off on Services Still Suspended, but…

Dear Friends and Clients,

Yes, we’re still with you! However the Governor’s order yesterday further suspends our services until May 1. We’ll be contacting each of you who have scheduled April facials, and you can contact us with your preferred May date and time.

April Retail Sale for 15% off is on! Orders can be shipped USPS Priority, and curbside pickup can be arranged (please respect the Governor’s order to stay home the next 2 weeks except for necessities).

Please also email or text your orders today as I’ll be placing my orders tomorrow.

To all who’ve already ordered or will order, thank you so much! It’s product sales that will tide all of us estheticians over till May. But much more than that, it’s your good thoughts, appreciation, and trust in us that we treasure. That means so much to us! And goes right back to all of you.

Service suspensions, stay home orders, lay-offs and closures are happening all over the country, and the world. And yet so many of us are more connected than ever because of the virus.

Last night the PBS News Hour “joined master cellist Yo-Yo Ma in asking the public to join the #SongsofComfort effort and contribute music both old and new.”  The great cellist is connecting and creating community world-wide with this effort. It really inspired me.

So whatever inspires and keeps you connected, whatever feeds your soul, do it, and do it again every day. We will continue to take care of ourselves and each other.

And we will get through this!

Sending our very best,

Marguerite and Milla

Services Suspended for Now

Posted by on Mar 18, 2020 in eNews | Comments Off on Services Suspended for Now

Good morning,

Under the Governor’s order, our services are suspended through March 27. We hope to reopen March 28.

Across the country, this is a great opportunity for all of us to do our parts, to make a difference and flatten the curve of the CornonaVirus infection.
Nationally, if we can hunker down, and continue with our increased hygiene practices, we can turn this around and contain the spread.

We’re living through a history-making year, let’s reinforce this with our children and grandchildren, whose events are and will be canceled.
Find the ways you can make a difference, help others, and look to history for perspective.

I remember my mom telling me about rationing in WW2, and that her mom “could make a party out of nothing!”

And after a long power outage here in the 90’s, a client’s youngest asked if they could still light candles and play games.

Yesterday, with schools out and organizing for on-line-learning, my 9 year-old great nephew created a wonderful Leprechaun trap/house out of cardboard boxes at home.

I’m advancing my April 15% off Retail Sale starting today, and taking orders now.
Gift certificates are always available.

Thank you so much, take great care and hang in there, we’ll get through it together.
Sending our best thoughts,
Marguerite and Milla
