product junkie

This handy little Magic Mitt is perfect for on the go. I typically use it to remove my eye make up only, but it came in handy on a road trip. One Sunday before heading home (to The Woodlands from Austin) my brother & I went stand up paddle-boarding for a few hot and sunny hours. I had to hop straight in the car and drive 3 hours home but didn't want to do it with my sunscreen caked face. I had this little guy on me, so I stopped and washed my face with it , reapplied sunscreen and got back on the road. I had to share because it is just the coolest! 

Click above and you can see how it works.You wet it, and start rubbing your make up off. When finished, hand wash it and hang it to dry between face washes. It dries so quickly that it doesn't harbor bacteria, so it won't make you break out & the fact that you don't need cleanser is even more convenient! It's pretty neat!

Clear + Brilliant

Aging skin is a fact of life, however, you can modify it to a certain degree. One of my favorite treatments in the Woodlands Wellness arsenal is Clear +Brilliant. Combining this treatment with the collection of skin care tricks, at any age, will help you recover the glow, luminosity and smoothness you deserve to have.

Regardless of your age, lack luster skin is from a variety of contributing factors such as sun damage, lifestyle or environmental conditions. Clear + Brilliant laser is a safe and unique treatment that uses fractional laser technology to address early signs of aging while also preventing them. A quick procedure with this laser (45 minutes) refreshes your skin from the inside out by replacing damaged areas with younger looking tissue. You will notice a radiant glow, reduced pore size, improvement in pigmentation, illuminated skin tone and a super soft, renewed skin texture. This treatment is also wonderful because it makes your products work better. 

If you're an old school microderm lover, this is for you. It's like having 4 micros at once with one day of redness & a month of that revitalized glow.

It is fast and effective with minimal downtime, so it is perfect for a busy lifestyle. In a perfect world, a series of 6 treatments will give you the best results, and they are done in 2 to 4 week intervals. You do see results from one, however. Complimentary consultations are recommended to discuss personalized options. Clear + Brilliant is appropriate for men and women of all ages and all skin types.

And yet another sexy pic of me, post treatment. On the left is before make up & the white around my eyes is the skin I did not treat. I usually do treat that area, but wanted you to be able to see the difference. On the right I easily covered the redness & went to work.

Fresh beautiful skin prepared here daily

Treatment vs product


Just as nutrition is to exercise in fitness, skin care is to treatments.


In diet and exercise, you know that 90% of results still come from your diet. You can work out all you want and get ok results, but modify your eating habits and your body changes quickly.


Well, it’s the same for your skin.  Most of your results are achieved from topical solutions (products). They dictate the daily behavior of your skin. Without them, your skin will return to its natural state.

Think of sunscreen for example. If you are in the sun, your skin changes color. With a good sunscreen, it does not. Imagine what topical retinoids can do! Btw, if you are in your 30's and aren't on retinol, it's time to start. In your 20's you need antioxidants to prevent sun-damage. In your 40's & beyond you want both. It's that simple!
