SkinSpirit Beverly Hills

May 1, 2021

We popped over to the new SkinSpirit location in Beverly Hills to see what all the buzz about and saw with our own eyes (and faces!) what this pioneer in advanced aesthetic treatments, medical-grade facials, and world class body services, is all about. Turns out – a lot! We will be heading back this May, to report on their signature facial and also a few more micro-tweaks with the incredible NP, Lynn Bartels. More about Lynn later, but she did the most amazing subtle refreshers with Botox and filler. Tiny micro-updates to balance, harmonize and refresh and the work was nothing short of amazing.

SkinSpirit is known for its expertise and exceptional service, with 17 luxurious locations throughout California, Texas, Washington and Utah – it’s the number one provider for Botox and dermal fillers in the U.S.

Their team of practitioners is considered best-in-class practitioners, they use up-to-date scientifically-proven methods, and offer a comprehensive suite of personalized, tailored services

The only way to ever report on anything involving aesthetics and injections is to experience it ourselves. Groomed LA has never and will never, write about anything that goes on or in your face and body, without firsthand trying for ourselves.

Lynn Bartels graduated from the Harbor-UCLA nurse practitioner program, with a dual degree in adult medicine and women’s health, and began her career as a nurse practitioner (NP) in cardio-thoracic surgery. She made the switch to aesthetics 17 years ago and was the first NP brought on board at SkinSpirit.

Today, Lynn treats patients from SkinSpirit’s Beverly Hills, Palo Alto and San Francisco clinics and stays on the cutting edge of new technology and techniques by working hands-on with thousands of patients a year. Recognized as an expert in the field of facial rejuvenation, Lynn specializes in creating custom non-surgical programs that use combination therapy to produce stunning results.

As a clinical expert, she is known for “training the trainers” and serves a national trainer for Allergan’s Medical Institute teaching her skills to residents, physicians and nurses around the country. Additionally, Lynn sits on several prominent medical advisory boards including SkinSpirit’s Medical Advisory Board and Allergan’s Aesthetics Advisory Board. She is a regular featured expert at the top national medical aesthetics conferences annually.

Is Your Body Wash Microbiome-Friendly Certified?

April 9, 2021

CRUDE, a leader in the personal care industry, is designed to cleanse, protect, heal, and balance the skin’s natural microbiome.

They just rebranded with a focus on their roots while simultaneously challenging the industry’s approach to everything from inflammatory skin disease and the hunger for beautifully crafted products, to climate change and diversity and inclusion in the beauty industry.

As part of the rebranding effort, CRUDE is relaunching the product assortment and website to include a content hub called SOUL, or School of UnLearning.

There, CRUDE collaborates with experts and advocates across industries to dive deep into three content pillars – Skin, Wellness, and Activism – exploring the topics through a holistic, science-based, and intersectional lens. Paving the way as leaders in the emerging microbiome-friendly market, CRUDE is using this opportunity to educate consumers on letting their skin and nature thrive.

“The rebrand is a realignment. We wanted to celebrate the biodiversity that enriches our microbiomes and planet – our very lives – and also have that reflected in the brand itself, from our packaging and website to the models we use, partners we collaborate with, and the makeup of our internal team,” said Denise Cartwright, founder of CRUDE.

In conjunction with the rebrand, CRUDE’s soap-free cleansers, Wash and Cleanse, were tested by MyMicrobiome, an independent, third-party lab with the world’s first seal for microbiome quality.

After measuring the cleansers’ microbial quality and impact on the skin’s natural bacterial diversity, tests confirmed both are microbiome-friendly. Further, the lab confirmed that Wash is the first certified microbiome-friendly body wash and baby wash in the world. Using 100% certified organic, botanical ingredients to heal, nourish, and protect the skin, CRUDE is setting a new standard in skincare.

Currently, CRUDE consists of six products, and three bundles with price points ranging from $12-$40 for single products and $60-$135 for bundles. All products are also multi-use driving on their sustainable mission (cleansers act as moisturizers all-in-one) leading to less waste in our landfills and oceans.

As the saying goes, “necessity is the mother of invention.” Such is the case with CRUDE, a leading microbiome-friendly skincare company founded by Master Esthetician, Denise Cartwright. Uniquely situated at the intersection of beauty, wellness, and activism, CRUDE products are designed to restore the body to its natural state without the use of harsh detergents or synthetic chemicals which can irritate the skin and disrupt its microbiome. Comprising six products, CRUDE launched with rave reviews from coast to coast in 2014. Now, CRUDE has undergone a rebrand designed to embrace its holistic, intersectional, science-based roots while simultaneously challenging the industry’s approach to everything from inflammatory skin disease and the hunger for beautifully crafted products, to climate change and diversity and inclusion in the beauty industry. Created with the modern consumer wholly in mind, their irreverent new tagline says it all, CRUDE invites consumers to unf*ck their flora and let their nature thrive.

Embody Retinol And ACV Gummies

March 5, 2021

The gummy biz is really just taking off. And now, EMBODY is the world’s first retinol gummy with a mission to radically evolve how women treat their skin. They are replacing hundreds of skincare products with one simple tasty gummy. Even better, Embody is a women-owned, minority-owned, women-led brand.

Just two a day (it’s hard to eat only two – they are THAT yummy), and your skin will appear more evenly pigmented, texture is eliminated, and collagen production is increased resulting in more youthful looking skin to produce a luminous glow.

Also right here on Amazon!

A formula designed to provide a dewy glow, reduce blemishes, promote cell turnover, strengthen hair, skin, nails and prevent premature aging (inclusive of ingredients like Vitamin A, C, D3, E, Biotin, Folic Acid, B12 and more). 

A juicy apple-flavored, inside-out wellness solution is designed to support healthy gut flora, improve digestion and replenish antioxidants. Supporting your gut health helps relieve inflammation in your skin and throughout your body; poor gut health can actually be the cause of acne and aging in the skin (it breaks down collagen!!).  Embody‘s ACV gummy provides the full recommended dose of ACV in just 2 gummies!

While Embody’s Retinol Gummy helps to promote skin cell turnover, the ACV gummy promotes gut health – while both add to the whole body approach to skin care. Most consumers don’t think about starting in their guts (healthy diet, probiotics, gut-supporting vitamins) when some of their skin concerns can be treated with a simple change in diet.

And the ACV Gummy!

 

More about Jenn Chung, founder of Embody:

Jenn Chung the founder of Embody Jenn immigrated to the US from Vietnam with her mother when she was 1 years old. She worked her way up through her family cosmetics company (Forever Beaumore) from packing boxes at age 15 to stepping in as President at age 24. Seeing first-hand how successful her family’s beauty supplements were in the Vietnamese market, Jenn was inspired to create a brand for women just like her and bring eastern beauty remedies to a modern western audience in a fun, palatable way.
