A Note From Beth

bethThere are so many things to celebrate this month... Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day and Graduations are just a few of the exciting events occurring this month.  Of course, Mother's Day stands out as a very special day of celebration. When I think of Mother's Day I think of how fortunate we all are to have our mothers in our lives.  There is no greater love than a mother's love for her child. Our mothers are always there to love and protect us, regardless of our age. They are a priceless gift that can't be replicated. This month provides us with the opportunity to express our love and appreciation for our mothers. Be sure to make your mother feel special all month long!


I am very thankful to have my mom, and thank God that she is now cancer-free for 6 years!  As a matter of fact, my family has a lot to be thankful son is graduating from kindergarten, and my husband and I are celebrating our 10- year wedding anniversary! And its spring in Colorodo...  Life is GOOD!


On behalf of the entire Skin Essentials team, we wish all the mothers a very happy Mother's Day! Also, congratulations to all the graduates as you begin this exciting new journey in life. You have accomplished so much already!!


This month's E-zine is packed with ideas for celebrating Mom, including an article on gift ideas for the mother  who has everything.  Don't miss the Mother's Day gift packages - they are packed with savings!  We look forward to seeing you this month and thank you for your patronage.


Have a Happy & Health May,
Beth Pestotnik - Founder

5 Perfect Gifts for the Mom Who Has Everything

momMother's Day is a wonderful time to let our own mothers and all those who "mother" know that they are special and loved. But, for those of us on the giving end of the equation, it can be difficult to figure out what to give to the woman who already has everything! If you're feeling a little stuck on gift ideas, check out the list below for some unique, thoughtful ideas!

1. A Clean House: Whether she works or stays at home, keeping the house clean is a task for any mom. With Mother's Day coinciding perfectly with spring, why not hire a professional housekeeper to do a deep cleaning for her? With all the dusting, mopping, and vacuuming done, she will have far more hours in the day to focus on what is important: Herself and her family.

2. A New Family Portrait: Getting the whole family together for a portrait can be a hassle, but what mother doesn't want to have a beautiful, professional picture of her loved ones to show off to everyone? Perhaps you can schedule time with a professional makeup artist before the shoot so she looks her very best!

3. A Jar Full of Memories: One of the best gifts a mother can ever receive is the knowledge that she is loved and appreciated. So, try this on for size: Get a large glass jar and tie a large bow or decorative ribbon around it. Then, have all the family members write their favorite mom related memories on brightly colored paper. Fold the papers in half and fill the jar to the brim. Then, whenever Mom needs a reminder of how special she is, she can reach into the jar and read one of the memories. 


massage4. An Indulgent Day for Her:  Of course, an indulgent day at the Spa is always a great option or addition to any gift! We are always happy to create the perfect day for Mom to de-stress and indulge. Call us to plan the perfect day, or stop in for a gift card so she can plan the perfect day for herself!

5. Something She Would Never Buy Herself: We all have things we want but would never buy for ourselves. Perhaps Mom has been eyeing a new coffee maker, or you know she has always wanted laser hair removal, but she would never get it for herself. Go ahead and give her the gift she would never buy herself this Mother's Day. Just knowing that you noticed something she likes and cared enough to give it to her on her special day will mean the world to her.

Send Your Graduate Off in Style!

graduateIt's May, a time for new beginnings! Graduation season is upon us, and it is such a special time. Do you remember your own graduation? I am sure that you have someone special in your life who is about to graduate! Whether they are graduating from high school, college, or graduate school, no doubt that some amazing new adventures await them! At this important moment in their life, rather than the standard savings bond or book, wouldn't you love to give them a gift they will appreciate and use? Check out the list below for some great ideas that are sure to make the graduate in your life feel special and appreciated, and contribute to their success wherever they may be headed!


1) Makeover: Men and women alike -everyone loves a new look. For your graduate, perhaps a new hairstyle would be a great start to a new chapter in her life. Or, if you want to be sure that their skin is bright, fresh, and blemish free, help them find a skincare regimen that works. Perhaps a series of facials for over the summer would be a perfect gift!


2) Professional Makeup Session: So many young women learn how to apply makeup by watching their mother, or their friends, and they seldom know what products will highlight their own best features. Now is the perfect time to take them to a professional who can help them establish a good, everyday look so that they are always putting their best face forward!


grad gifts3) New Wardrobe: Let's face it- what you wore in college would not have translated well into a career, and what you wore in high school does not often translate well to college. No matter what new adventure your graduate is headed off to, a new wardrobe is a perfect gift. Perhaps you can take them shopping with you, or contact a nearby boutique or department store for a consultation.  Many of these shops have complimentary professional shoppers who can help your graduate achieve the perfect look that projects confidence and grace.


4) Emergency Box: Sometimes life gets away from you and all of a sudden you realize that you are out of shampoo, and there is no time to pick up a new bottle today. Yikes! This is why an "Emergency Box" is a great gift for any graduate. Gather together some of their favorite things - candies, snacks, a movie, a candle with their favorite scent - and some of the essentials - hair and skin care, ibuprofen for those long nights, extra laundry detergent, etc. - and pack it up in a plastic bin. Mark it "Open In Case of Emergency." They will be thrilled to know that you thought ahead and are still taking care of them even though they may be far away.


5) Gift cards: These are one of best gifts a person can get when starting a new chapter in life! If there is a restaurant near their new home that they love, grab them a few gift cards to use when they're too tired to make dinner for themselves. Or, does your graduate love getting a massage? Call to pick up a few gift cards for them. They'll make a wonderful graduation gift, and it will be great for you to know that your present will help them adjust and de-stress in their new home.


No matter what gift you choose for your graduate, no doubt that they will appreciate and love you just because you thought of them!

Ask a Therapist

I am 35 years old and starting to notice some fine lines. What is the best way to prevent wrinkles?

A: It is so smart of you to be proactive about anti-aging! There are a few things I always recommend!

1. Don't smoke
2. Don't use tanning beds
3. Limit alcohol and caffeine consumption
4. Exercise 4-5 days a week.
5. Wear daily SPF 30
6. Have your Skin Essentials Esthetician recommend an antioxidant home regime and experience monthly skin care treatments. Also, keep in mind that stress can be an instant aging factor, so also be proactive about including stress-reducing activities in your life!


Let us help you create a preventative program just for you!
