Happy Summer!

Summer DaisiesJakare Special this month is Ageless Serum and Hydra Gel Ageless is one of my favorites, with the firming antioxidant DMAE and plumping hyaluronic acid, it’s a very hydrating, rich serum.
This month it’s boosted with Strawberry Extract, to lighten age spots and boost elasticity. It’s great around eyes too!

Hydra Gel is super-quenching, deeply-drenching and helps puffiness and capillary repair. I use lots of it in client treatments, it adds a velvety feel to skin.
June Special is offered in 3 sets/choices at 20% and 30% off
Get all the details at

New from Image Skincare is Max Stem Cell Neck Lift and clients are impressed with samples, so I’ve ordered it! Plant stem cells and firming peptides are the hallmark of the Max line, and this looks like a wonderful addition to the line.
2 oz tube will be 15% off at $68

I’ve ordered an LED light therapy mask.
It may be the ticket for those of you who love the effect of LightStim hand-held lights at home, but don’t spend the time doing it.

Stay tuned on this one, can’t wait to see how we like it.
It has red, blue and green lights, green is fading to hyper-pigmention!

Stay cool and have a great weekend! Thanks so much, Everybody!

Leap Year Greetings to Everyone,

leapyearWe continue to see great results with LED light therapy treatments, both in facials and at home, with the Pain Light, Wrinkle Light, and both sizes of Acne Lights.  The Wrinkle Light kit now includes 1 PhotoSerum and 1 PhotoMasque as your gift, worth $90!

I use these with every treatment because they accelerate results.They contain photosomes and peptides, found in sea plankton, and have a unique ability to utilize LED light energy.

Jakare’s Special is their fabulous Rose Protocol including Rose Crystals, Rose Masque, HydraGel, and Rose Mist ~ set is discounted 20% for $106

I’ve used Rose Masque in facials for years, and this specially-boosted batch is noticeably rich and more hydrating, great for this time of year. I love it!

The HydraGel was reformulated last year and I think it compares to GlyMed’s Ultra Hydro Gel, but for a lot less $ ~ the same velvety-smooth, plumped up feeling, very hydrating indeed.
And every $100 Jakare order comes with free 2 oz Body Silk, this smells so good, even my husband wanted to know what I was using!

1 more week for the special, ends Feb 29

Clarisonic has improved their Opal Sea Serum with a great pump and thicker consistency that still glides just like I want when infusing eye creams.
The 1 oz serum kit comes with 2 extra tips and we discount it 15% off retail for $55, you save $10.
If you’re not using your Opal these days, I can show you great techniques that feel wonderful and will get you inspired.

I am so happy to have Milla back and working with me. She brings all her knowledge and expertise from her years of experience in Europe, and her recent 2 years in Asheville.
Together we offer services 7 days a week, and are going strong.

New Sunscreen – New Art

Posted by on Jul 17, 2015 in eNews | Comments Off on New Sunscreen – New Art

July Greetings,

Prairie Smoke by Karen Srombaugh

Prairie Smoke by Karen Stombaugh

We’re heading into a sizzler weekend in MN, so stay cool, have fun and wear your sunscreen.
I love Skin Ceuticals’ new Tinted Matte SPF 50 ~ on sale this month for 15% off for $31 with tax.
It goes on like silk, the tint seems to work on everyone, and though created for oily skins, I’m using it on most clients.

(I use untinted on necks, chests, hands and arms ~ don’t want tint on clothes).

Karen Stombaugh is a local pastel artist and I’m thrilled to have several pieces of her work on display and for sale. They include a painting that was juried in 2015 into the International Assoc of Pastel Societies. She finds her inspiration in nature and its mystery.

I have room for more art in my studio so please be welcome to ask me about displaying your work or someone you know.

Jakare’s July Special features 3 antioxidants ~ Brighten, Essential Nutrients, and 15 Fruit Cocktail Elixir.
Buy a set of these 3 for 25% off or buy a set of 2 of the same for 20% off.
Get all the details at

Buying my new LED light therapy unit is a big investment for me, and I can’t say enough about the fabulous results!

LED light smooths lines and retextures, firms and tightens, fades pigmentation and redness, heals acne, soothes irritations and inflammation and more.  Though the light is bright, it’s also relaxing, clients fall asleep and one claims it cured a hangover.

To see the unit I’m using, go to and click on Professional.

Thanks so much and have a great weekend!

$55 on sale

Clarisonic’s Opal Sea Serum kit $55 on sale, 1 oz serum + 2 Opal tips
I discovered this serum is very firming all over the face and neck!
For those who already have an Opal, this serum gives you firmer result with the device and a fun summer extra that will not make you more photo-sensitive.

New LED full face panel with red, blue and amber light, is on its way!
This safe treatment is healthy for all (except those who get light-induced headaches). It tightens, stimulates cell turn over and collagen production, helps heal acne and skin irritations, helps calm/regulate oil production, reduces redness, swelling and inflammation (great for rosacea), increases circulation, oxygen and nutrients to cells which rejuvenates and increases glow.

Have a safe and great holiday weekend!
And bless the reason for Memorial Day, and remembering.

My Very Best,
