What does our skin do for us? The skin protects us from microbes and the elements, helps regulate body temperature, and permits the sensations of touch, heat, cold, and pain. It is the largest organ of the body. The scalp tissue can also feel the soothing touch of a good shampoo, heat when a flat iron, pressing comb or curling iron touches it, coldness of the winter season, and pain of any trauma to the scalp. Put simply, your scalp tissue has a tolerance level, just like your skin. Remember that. Tips for healthier skin: cleanse at least twice daily…morning and a night. Moisturize daily to protect your skin from environmental dryness. Wear sunscreen during the summer season…sun damage can be painful, as well as darken/damage your skin cells. Pamper your skin with a facial every week to two weeks timeline. Excessive sugar in your diet affects your facial skin. Eat fruits, vegetables, and hydrate by drinking water…half your body weight. I am thankful for MUAs! Crystal has assisted me with five magazine cover girl-glam looks! The pandemic has impacted her makeup service business. She shares about her survival.
Crystal Scott: I have been an MUA for seven years. Crystal Scott Artistry is the name of my business. At the beginning, COVID-19 caused a decrease in business during prom season. But, with the influx of high school seniors wanting senior pictures and the opening of business amid the wedding season, the business has now increased. I haven’t had to incorporate many changes. As an MUA, sanitation, and cleanliness are very important. I have always used disposable wands and refrain from double-dipping in tubes products. I sanitize my tools after every client. I now use gloves with clients and wear a mask as the major change. I have not received much feedback at this time, regarding questions/ feedback from customers or new customers about my services? I am also an Elementary School Teacher. We adapted to teaching our students online after spring break. Two tips I would like to share with consumers include: Always wash and sanitize your tools after you purchase them and make sure that your MUA is using clean tools when offering services. Your facial skin reflects how well you take care of it. When I want to have a glam look, my hairstyle of choice is a sew-in.
