Have you ever felt like no matter what you do your skin never quite looks the way you want it to?
Do you feel like you'd rather not leave the house, FaceTime, or post on social media unless you're wearing at least a little bit of makeup to cover up those spots on your skin, dark circles, or (gasp) the breakouts you feel you are WAY too old to be getting?
Have you ever felt so uncomfy with your appearance that you've cancelled plans or felt your heart sink after being tagged in a photo online?
Has there ever been a time when your significant other or your child went to kiss your face and you've turned away because you didn't want them seeing your skin that close or potentially adding any bacteria that could create more breakouts?
Have you ever woke up in the middle of the night because the pain of rolling over on the acne on your cheeks was just too much?
Have you ever lead a webinar, presented on stage, or had to be on film or in a photo shoot but felt more focused on the imperfections of your complexion than confidently presenting your best self?
Have you been hearing a lot of the following:
"You look so tired!"
"Late night, huh?!"
"You look so stressed."
"I think it's about time for a vacation."
Ok, that last one's not so bad, since every time is a good time for a vacation. But you get my drift.
If you can relate I want you to know you're not alone, and all of this can be a thing of the past!
I help busy women stop hiding behind their makeup and provide easy ways for them to look and feel their best so they can stop worrying about breakouts or aging skin and start confidently sharing their gifts with the world.
My message is that Healthy Skin Starts Within & it is absolutely, positively, 100% possible to love your complexion once again (or maybe for the 1st time ever.)
My mission is to empower women one fabulous face at a time. I want you to gain confidence, feel fantastic, radiate, hold your head high as you shine bright in this world, and absolutely LOVE your skin... because Healthy Skin is Beautiful!
My goal is to make sure that all women are not only comfortable in their skin, but that they absolutely love it. I want to help women remember that, in today's world of selfie posting & the attainment of "likes", true beauty starts on the inside and that feeling healthy & happy is the most important beauty tip of all.
My wish for all women (myself included) is that we take care of ourselves in a way that feels good to us; that we no longer lose ourselves in the pleasing of others or unnecessary overworking; that we stop being/looking/feeling/saying/doing what others think we should; and that we recognize that we are valuable, we are loved, and no matter what kind of crazy is going on in our life (or taking place with our skin) it will all be a-ok!
If you’re visiting my site for the first time, you may not be feeling too much love for your skin right now. Perhaps you’re not feeling like it has much love for you based on it’s red, angry, inflamed, or rapidly aging appearance?
You're in the right place!
I can help!
I’m here to tell you, it doesn’t have to be like this.
I know - I’ve been exactly where you are. Over the years, I’ve struggled with acne, rashes, boils, hormonal pigmentation changes, tanning addiction as a teen, and the premature signs of aging that come along with getting too much sun, not enough sleep, and waaaaay too much stress.
Ahhh, the joys of being a highly sensitive individual who's skin reacts to food, stress, and crashes in adrenal function. Trust me when I say, I know how tough it is to go thru ALL of these things. I'm not only a pro at skin because of how long I've been an aesthetician helping others with highly challenging skin concerns, but because of all that I've dealt with when it comes to my own skin too.
I care deeply about you and your skin, and I know that good skin health is not just an ‘outside’ job. I've seen firsthand the effects that diet and stress can have on the skin. I know how important it is to get enough sleep, exercise, and to drink enough water. I also know how important it is to love your life! When you love your life, you feel good, when you feel good you......On the flip side, when you look good, you feel good, and you love your life! So do you see how important Healthy Skin can ultimately be?
I do not recommend a product or treatment unless I’ve tried it on myself and I’m always experimenting with treatments (on my own skin) in order to learn how to achieve the most effective results possible. I do this to me, so I can do this for you. I want you to feel comfortable and safe trusting me with such a vital part of your happiness and health. It brings me great joy that over the years I’ve been able to correct the damage done by botched laser treatments and chemical peels received at other facilities, and that I’ve been able to provide fantastic results for individuals who say they’ve tried everything and thought nothing would ever work for them. When a mother says she’s finally comfortable with her young children touching her face, or when a wife says she no longer turns away when her husband goes to kiss her cheek because she’s not self conscious about her complexion anymore, I feel like I have done my job. I’m so grateful that I get to help people every day in a way that I love. That’s what life is ultimately about, isn’t it? It’s easy to get out of bed every morning when you know that you’re making a difference in exactly the way that you’re supposed to.
Unofficially, I started my career as a makeup artist at age 5 with Hasbro Faces Fashion Plates. Does anyone remember this toy??? I would spend countless hours applying endless makeup ‘looks’ to the faces I would trace. I worked pro bono at the time as this was not on my paid chore list, but I still loved what I did! As a teen I promoted myself to aesthetician and concocted all sorts of facial steam baths and masks from whatever I could find in the kitchen. Evidently, I had a passion for organic treatment products very early on and knew that the world would eventually catch up.
Some of the highlights of my childhood was when grandma would give me the gift-with-purchase makeup samples she received at the mall. I could sit at her kitchen table and play with them for hours.
It’s so important that we discover what we love as a child, because 9 times out of 10, it’s ultimately what we love as an adult. I became a Licensed Aesthetician & Professional Makeup Artist after being trained at the National Aesthetics Institute of Scottsdale in 2002, and I’ve never stopped learning. I continually seek out advanced educational opportunities regarding all aspects of the health, beauty and aesthetics industries, and I read ingredient dictionaries as well as cosmetic dermatology books and journals in my free time. Yes, sometimes I have a little free time and I read dictionaries… Nerdy is in these days, right?
I began my official career in the salon and day spa environments offering basic aesthetics services such as facials, mild peels, waxing, and makeup applications. I loved it all from the start! Yet, while my clients adored me for providing them with the ultimate in relaxation facial treatments, I soon realized that I needed to be able to provide more. Not only did I want to get my skin looking better so that my clients could clearly see the results of my work, but I wanted my clients to be able to feel comfortable not having to wear makeup to cover blemishes or the pigmented discolorations the intense Arizona sun inevitably brings about. So, I started learning all I that could about the effects of lasers and advanced chemical peels on the skin. Since 2004, I’ve worked in numerous medical spas and doctors’ offices providing advanced corrective treatments for almost every cosmetic skin concern imaginable. I have also worked for a well-known professional mineral makeup company teaching advanced makeup application techniques, trends in the makeup industry, and the ways to successfully camouflage acne, pigmentation, and post surgical bruising to other aestheticians in salons, resort spas, medical spas, and plastic surgeons’ offices.
In 2009 I opened Healthy Skin AZ and have been sought after as one of the leading aestheticians in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. My clients come from all over the state of Arizona, and many from across the country. I feel honored that I get to work with people from all walks of life. Some of my most faithful followers include doctors, nurses, and other well-respected aestheticians.
But back to you. You CAN achieve your skin care goals. You CAN look AND Feel better than ever before.
Like I said in the beginning, I know that good skin health is not just an outside job. It’s also an inside job, and I can guide you along those lines with my personal experiences with health, wellness, fitness, and nutrition. I am a firm believer that we must care for our bodies on the inside and out, and when we do, our beauty is multiplied and can’t help but shine.
On a personal note, I have a strong family history of cancer and a few years back, I lost my father to the disease. I learned that many of the instances of cancer in my family have come about from estrogen dominance, which can be linked to all sorts of toxic chemicals in the things we eat & use on our skin. I’m now more determined than ever to provide myself & my clients with products that contain the highest quality natural, preferably vegan/plant based, and organic ingredients.
To this end, I have spent years researching and creating my own soon-to-be-released skin care and mineral makeup line that live up to these healthy standards, while making amazing, noticeable changes in your skin. Again, I’ve tried all of these products on my own skin, and I endorse every single one of them. Many skin care and makeup companies use harsh, irritating ingredients that are very unhealthy for your skin.
Each week women bring in to my office hundreds (sometimes thousands) of dollars worth of skin care & makeup products for me to review the appropriateness for their skin. Rarely do they feel like they’ve worked for them. Oftentimes I’m frustrated to find so many potentially harmful and/or just plain ineffective ingredients in what they’ve been using.
If I’m going to help you learn to love your skin, I want you to love the products that you use on your skin as well. And it’s easy to love products that are so good for you that it feels like they love you, too!
The skin is the largest organ of your body–what you put on it ultimately finds its way inside. I will love sharing my knowledge with you and helping you take the guesswork out of what’s good or bad for your skin. Be on the lookout for my cosmetics line - Breanna Thomas HEALTHY SKIN & BEAUTY. I began creating this remarkably effective natural & corrective skin care & makeup line in the 2012 and the testing phase is almost complete. So far, they’re a HUGE hit with my skin care clientele & I can't wait to share them with the world (but mostly YOU! I know they can help you!)
I thank you so much for taking this opportunity to get to know me better and to learn more about my passion. I look forward to providing you complete skin rejuvenation with results-oriented treatments and skin care products for acne, anti-aging, or just improving the health and look of your skin. Remember, when you love your life, you feel good and you look good. On the flip side, when you look good, you feel good and you love your life! Spend less time worrying about your skin, and more time loving life. So, now do you see how important Healthy Skin can ultimately be?
