Skin Health 101
Unsure of your skin type? Wondering what is an exfoliant and why do you need one? Curious about an ingredient? Does skincare confuse you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this page is the one for you!
Welcome to Nia Imani,
As many of you know I am a licensed and practicing esthetician. My goal as an esthetician is not only to provide clients with exceptional skin treatments but, to give them the tools they need to maintain the treatment. For me, the tools my clients need to sustain the results are more than just skin care products. To me the most important tool I can give them is knowledge; skin care knowledge that is. I want my clients to understand what certain ingredients can do to/for the skin, why they should be cautious when out in the sun, why diet and exercise is important for great skin, etc., etc. I feel that this information will empower them to make good skin care choices even when I am not around/available to guide them. To be frank, I believe all people, not just my clients should have access to information pertaining to skin health.
When I started Nia Imani I wanted to use my expertise to provide the world with information on more than just makeup and beauty. I wanted to share my passion for skin health. I believe that the skin should be taken care of and maintained like all other organs. I also believe that as a licensed professional and skin care enthusiast I have a great opportunity to share my knowledge, tips, and tricks that I have acquired with everyone (not just my clients). So, with that welcome to skin health 101.
Skin Health 101 is going to be a series of skin care related posts. This series is about all the different kinds of skin care tidbits that only licensed professionals and skin care enthusiast know. This series is for people who just are in a skin care runt, or need a little help navigating skin care, or even just someone looking to know a little more about skin care. I will be breaking down everything from ingredients to hot tips and more!
I am so excited for all the wonderful topics and hot tips that will be produced during the series. The series will begin with Hyaluronic Acid 101; this is a prefect topic to start the series with because it’s one of my favorite ingredients and the ingredient can benefit all skin types/concerns.
I hope you all enjoy today’s Skin Health 101 and let’s get started!
Now that you all know exactly what Hyaluronic acid is and why it is great for the skin, I want to share with you all a few of my favorite hyaluronic acid products. (Click the names of the products to find more information from the companies about each product.)
I hope you all enjoyed today’s post. If you have any questions, requests, comments, or concerns please refer to the ‘contact’ tab above or leave a comment below. Please remember to like and share this blog post with you family and friends. Thank you for all your continued support.
