This #WisdomWednesday we introduce Julien Farel team member, Margo Falevich, an aesthetician who is best known for her eyelash extensions specialty. She shares her skin advice, top products and favorite trends!
1. What’s the best thing people can do for their skin?
I think the best thing you could do for your skin is to understand it. It is extremely important to use the correct product for your skin type. The wrong product will either have no effect or it could potentially be damaging for your skin. Additionally, it is very important to stay out of the sun! So never forget to apply daily SPF. Most importantly, ALWAYS follow your aesthetician’s instructions. We are the professionals who have studied the inner workings of the skin and its reactivity of different ingredients or products.
2. What question do clients ask you the most about skin and what do you answer?
My clients usually ask me what I think about their skin. Depending on their skin type and condition, I tend to recommend products that I consider appropriate for them. The only thing I always tell them is to look for products that are based on natural ingredients and not on strong chemicals.
3. What is your favorite summer trend?
My favorite summer trend is eyelash extensions. I have been performing them on a lot of clients and our salon and spa team. The greatest part of the eyelash extensions is how low maintenance they are. You save a lot of time when getting ready because there is no need for mascara or eye makeup! They make the eyes pop and soften the face for a feminine look. They look natural and give women more confidence while wearing less makeup! Plus, they last up to six weeks.
4. What’s your favorite part of working at Julien Farel?
I really appreciate the opportunity this Salon & Spa gives me to extend my skills and grow as a professional by being surround by a team of such talented people. I love my team!
5.What career advice do you have for aestheticians starting out?
Learn how to listen. Always listen to any advice because there is always room to learn more. It is also key to learn from your mistakes and absorbe everything you can in order to grow personally and professionally.
6. What is something people don’t know about you?
I recently started taking piano lessons for the past year. I always wanted to play the piano, so one day I decided to learn and I am absolutely loving it!
7. What’s your favorite skincare product?
I really like using Dermarest’s products on the skin. I think this is one of the best skincare company’s because of the wide variety range of products they have developed. They carry a product for almost every skin concern. What I love most about them is that they base their products on plant cells avoiding the use of heavy chemicals.
8. What skincare technology impresses you most?
I think there are so many new helpful technologies being applied to every part of the skincare industry. However, I feel that the power of touch is the best for the skin. Deep massages and working with hands are irreplaceable by any technology.
9. What’s your favorite Julien Farel service to get done?
I love massages! They are my go-to service. Here at Julien Farel, my favorite one is the Swedish massage. It’s great for blood flow and muscles toning. It also is a great relaxation tool and a enjoyable stress-relieving experience!
