Meet our Professional Dermalogica Skin Therapist. Emma Giono!
For all of you who I haven’t had the opportunity to meet, let me introduce myself. My name is Emma Giono and I am a Skin Therapist at Tips Nail Bar.
I graduated from the advanced Humber College Esthetic and Spa Management program a little over a year ago where I trained as an esthetician and was lucky enough to land a job at Tips Nail Bar shortly after.
I love being a skin therapist! I meet so many great people, I help them with a skin care routine and it allows me to assist them in obtaining their healthiest and best skin possible. I also have the opportunity to break-down ingredients and benefits as well as give
little helpful tips that can make a world of difference.
Seeing how excited they are when their skin begins to transform is priceless.
What is the biggest mistake women make when choosing their skin care?
I feel the biggest mistake women make when choosing their skin care is self diagnosis. If there was something wrong with your body, you wouldn’t write your own prescription you would go to your doctor. Same thing should be said with your skin. It’s the largest organ in our bodies so its best to seek help from a professional skin therapist.
Here is a great example: You have been experiencing breakouts on one side of your face and you go purchase a product that is meant to help reduce them, they go away and eventually reappear. There could be many factors involved as to why this would be happening. This may be caused by talking on your phone and not disinfecting the phone regularly or maybe by sleeping on your side at night and not washing your pillow case regularly enough. Its extra information like that that can make all the difference. A professional skin therapist can help you narrow down to what may be causing this.
What is the biggest mistake women make with their skin?
A huge but very easy mistake to correct is going to sleep with makeup on. It’s one of the worst things you can do for your skin. It can cause congestion, breakouts, premature aging and not allow your skin to regenerate while your sleep. Night time is the best time to apply your super charged serums and moisturizers. Why shortchange yourself and waste that time by leaving your makeup on?
What is the most valuable piece of information you would give to a client?
The most valuable piece of advice I would give my clients would be that prevention is key! It is so much easier to prevent than to correct. Doing something as simple as using an SPF on a daily basis can dramatically change the future of your skin.
If you had to choose 3 Dermalogica products (only 3), what would they be?
Picking three is so hard but my top three at the moment would be…
AGE Smart Skin Perfect Primer SPF 30: This is a super product! It’s a treatment, primer and an SPF all in one. It helps smooth away fine lines, even skins texture, balance skin tone, improve firmness and protect from harmful sun exposure.
MediBac Clearing Breakout Control: Even though its brand new I’m already in love. This can be used as a spot treatment or all over, morning and night if needed. It’s going to reduce and clear breakouts as well as preventing future ones, all without drying out the skin.
AGE Smart Multivitamin Power Serum: This is a super charged serum! It can be used under your moisturizer day and night. It has microencapsulated vitamins so it can be delivered to the deeper layers of the skin that will decrease fine lines and
hyperpigmentation while stimulating collagen formation.
What do you think the biggest misconception about skin care is?
That you will find a magical product that will do everything you want right away. It takes time for products to work. Your skin regenerates about every 28 days and as you age it’s slows down even more. It’s important to stick with a product for at least a month before you decide if whether or not it’s working for you.
Why do you think Face Mapping is so important?
The face mapping skin analysis is an amazing tool that a professional skin therapist can use to help you obtain your healthiest skin possible. We take the time to divide the face into 14 different zones making sure not to miss anything! It’s informative, fun and there’s a large chance you will learn something new about your skin. You can get tips and tricks for ways to help your skin that may not have anything to do with products. Once finished, you will have your 100% personalized skin care prescription that has your professionally selected products. Best of all its FREE!
