Feature: Miss Joy Skincare + a portland giveaway

If you all follow me on twitter you've heard me rave about my skin care gal. She has helped me SO much start to get a handle on my least favorite thing (my skin...) 

I grabbed bloggers Anna & Hannah  to come down to her salon with me for some fun

{lookin beautiful after their organic airbrush tans}

Would like for you guys to meet Jesslin Richman 
of Miss Joy Skincare 

Q & A:

What made you interested in skin care?
I grew up with a horrible complexion And I was always was really self conscious of my skin. Since then I always wanted to learn how to fix my own skin and help others that were also uncomfortable In their own skin. 

Tell us a little bit about your business/services?

I started this business on wanting the foundation to be "affordable personal skincare." (this is what makes me different too) Meaning: I am the only one treating my clients. Everytime you come in you don't see a new therapist. I learn your skin and what works for you. There is not a miracle solution to any skin problem. Everyones skin is unique and I treat everyone differently.

What makes you different?

I am also different from other skin therapists because you don't have to try and fit in my Schedule.. You fit Miss Joy into your Schedule.

I work by appointment only, meaning you can schedule your appointment the day you need it done or months in advance. I take appointments anytime from 9am-9pm. 7 days a week.  I want to make sure I am always available for you! 

What is your specialty/ What special services to you have ? 

My specialty would have to be my healthy paraben free airbrush tanning. It's a customized solution for everyone's skin tone. Non orange guaranteed! It's important for the solution to be paraben free because when you use a product with parabens in it, it can mimic estrogen an can lead to breast cancer. The solution is one of a kind and it's cheaper than any place in Oregon! Only $20 per tan or $60 a month!
You don't need to put on any lotions on your hands or feet! Just come in and give me 15 mintues of your time and you will leave with a great glow or tan, whatever you want!

What is your favorite skin care product?

Personally my favorite skincare product is Retinol. It's a derivative of vitamin A. When put on your skin it becomes an exfoliate and increases collagen production. Which in return reduces blemishes and wrinkles!  What else could you want right?

What is your best skin advice?

1st: If you don't like to wash your face or it's hard for you to wash your face twice a day, wash your skin at night. Your skin replenishes most at night and it can't do that if you don't clean off your makeup and clear your pores. Every day you sleep with makeup on your pores it ages you on an average of 20 days per night. That ads up! Yikes.  

2nd: Wear sunscreen and don't go in tanning beds! 
Not only does your chances increase with skin cancer, you are aging yourself at a rapid pace.
