"Having a facial with Jenny is always something to look forward to. From start to finish it is the ultimate experience in relaxation. Heated table, aromatherapy oils, beautiful Gua Sha stones and killer massage techniques all work to refresh and relax you. I’m not sure how she gives my facial muscles the workout they so desperately need and still makes my whole body feel relaxed at the same time. But I do know that my next appointment can’t come soon enough!" - Samantha Purslow
"You are beautiful skincare by Jenny has provided me with the best acne treatment I have received. I am 23 and have struggled on and off with acne since I was 12. I’ve been going to You Are Beautiful since December 2018 and the results have far exceeded my expectations. Not only has my acne and inflammation cleared up, but my skin has gotten firmer, brighter, and glowy. My dark spots are close to disappearing, my skin feels softer after every session, and my skin has gone from oily and inflamed to a more balanced and calm complexion. Jennifer’s holistic approach reflects who she is as a person. She is gentle and calming and goes above and beyond than just facial treatments. She recommends dietary and lifestyle changes so we can implement an important skincare regimen at home. Her passion for helping others & reminding us of how beautiful we are is incomparable to the usual facial salons, and I've been to many. Her treatments are affordable and her work goes beyond compensation. I have recommended Jenny to friends who have also fallen in love with her work and her approach to skin and beauty care. I love coming here and will continue to do so forever, if possible! " - Marina Delgado
Frequently Asked Questions.....
What is a Holistic Facial?
A Holistic Facial contains the same principles as a regular Facial, yet it takes a holistic approach concentrating on the person as a whole and not just what skin type that person has. A Holistic Facial at You Are Beautiful Skincare will incorporate the use of organic, high-vibration skin care ingredients and will include lymphatic drainage and advanced face massage modalities. Face massage is essential as it stimulates your skin's own natural capabilities, which encourages healthy-functioning skin and overall wellness.
What is Sculptural Face Lifting Technique?
Sculptural Face Lifting Technique - also known as Buccal Massage is hailed by countless celebrities worldwide like Meghan Markle, Kate Moss & Keira Knightly as their go-to Red carpet & Royal wedding skin prep.
This innovative and renowned European technique is offered by only a handful of estheticians worldwide.
Jenny is currently one of a small group of therapists in the United States certified in this advanced level massage technique.
This tension melting, anti-gravity massage is done by massaging deep inside the cheek and jaw area to allow it to sit higher, creating a more lifted structure and defined facial contours. It is the ultimate facial workout and at the same time quite relaxing!
Results are cumulative so 6-10 weekly sessions are recommended and then continue with monthly maintenance treatments.
What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a rhythmic, pumping massage that stimulates the lymphatic system, the network of vessels between body tissues and organs that acts as the body's waste-disposal unit. MLD speeds up the elimination of metabolic waste and excess fluid from the body, and boosts the immune system. This is possibly the ultimate detox treatment!
Jenny incorporates MLD into her facial treatments with the use of Gua Sha Crystal Therapy and Thai Herbal Poultice Massage.
