As a mom, one of the biggest challenges we face is taking the time to take care of ourselves. We are not super hero’s as my husband likes to remind me. Our lives are busy, hectic and messy with children. We love them to the moon and back. So let’s take a moment for ourselves. It’s time to refresh in the new year.
Each week I plan to highlight a local business that will help you find time to relax and take care of you.
This week I would like to highlight Kendyl of PDX Beauty Bar. She offers advanced, holistic, plant-based skincare, waxing, organic sugaring & lash services. She has recently started blogging about "Raising The Bar" at www.pdxbeautybar.com. Each treatment not only feels good but is nourishing to the body and soul. Something happens when you STOP and are STILL. This precious time allows for grounding and renewal which is exactly what every new, experienced or expectant parent needs.
I have personally received a very relaxing customized facial, lash lift and tint, brow tint and brow shaping. Her touch is divine and soothing, just what any busy mother needs. Quiet time and me time.
I asked Kendyl what sets her apart and she told me, "I set my intention everyday to see the beauty in life and to see beauty in each and every one of my clients. My goal is to connect them to the deeper, truer beauty in life and in themselves. I want everyone to leave feeling beautiful inside and out."
She also told me more about her industry, "licensed Estheticians are quietly waiting for the majority of people to realize and value their knowledge. Finding a Licensed Esthetician to help you properly care for your skin (sooner than later) will save you so much time and money. When you make the right choices for your skin at an early age, you're able to prevent many conditions and concerns that would otherwise develop over time. Some Estheticians, like myself, focus on holistic skin care; Considering the entire body as a whole and diagnosing within our scope and referring out to other practitioners. Seeing us may seem like a luxury, and we love pampering you, but we also know how to do much more than that."
Kendyl wants you to know that many clients enjoy a facial over a full-body massage and are pleasantly surprised when benefits go further than the initial relaxation and pampering. Also SPF is the #1 product you can use for anti-aging. Wear it everyday, rain or shine, please! Skin cancer is no joke.
Kendyl is a mother herself of two boys. She works hard to help support her passion and her family. She is also a part of the amazing mommy owned businesses I'm constantly talking about. She grew up on a small farm with horses and spent most of her childhood outside exploring, making forts with her brother and playing with the animals. She always cherishes being able to grow up with so much space and freedom.
I highly recommend taking care of you and your skin at PDX Beauty Bar with Kendyl. She is located in Milwaukie inside of Birch Salon.
Here are my before and afters. :)
