Revealing Confident Skin
Elle Esthetics’ EXCLUSIVE brand HeadStrong Cosmeceuticals is FINALLY here! Featuring ALL NON Pore-Clogging ingredients!
Bottom line: I don’t want to break out. I want to age gracefully – I want to be able to use good anti-aging products with great active ingredients. But I don’t want them to break me out. Most product that are for the purposes of ‘anti-aging’ are filled with pore cloggers! I think most times it is assumed that by the time a person is at the point of their life that they are interested in fending off the skin aging process that they must be ‘past that time of their life.’ You know; the ‘teen years when you break out.’ Then why did I still break out in my 20s and 30s. Why, as an esthetician, do I see my clients needing intense extractions well into their 60s, 70s and even 80s! It largely has to do with what we are putting on our faces!!
Now I’m not ignoring the genetic and environmental components of break outs that exist. That most certainly can and does play a part. But haven’t you ever tried a new skin care product and you broke out more afterwards? Why? Did it just ‘not agree’ with your skin? Why was that? Because there were likely pore-clogging ingredients in that product!
Do you have a bunch of products laying around? Products that you wanted to try, but found that you broke out more after using them, so now they just sit. What if you KNEW you could use a line of products….products that were potent, health-conscious and effective….and not break out?
Well that’s what I set out to do. And that’s what HeadStrong Cosmeceuticals offers. A line of products that you can TRUST will not break you out (by the standards of oily, acne-prone skin). The ingredients in HeadStrong Cosmeceuticals are clinically proven to not be likely to clog pores. Now of course there are likely outliers, people for example, who KNOW that they have broken out from using pumpkin seed oil before (an oil with great antioxidant properties and natural vitamin A and E), will STILL BE likely to break out from pumpkin seed oil despite the fact that it is packaged up nice in a new formula. We cannot guarantee that people will not break out (because as you likely know, acne seems to ‘have a mind of it’s own’ in a sense), but we can promise that we have done our best; pored over ingredients; and compiled products that we believe and have found to be non-pore-clogging, active and effective.
Why trust us? Because we are obsessed with avoiding the ‘bad list.’ We don’t want anything on our own faces that may break us out! We won’t put our name on anything that we don’t believe in. Maybe you’ve just met us and you are skeptical to trust us that our products are made with every intention in the world to not cause you breakouts. That’s ok! Check us out! Check out all our ingredients! Do your own research and it is likely that will find the same answers and solutions that we have – to avoid putting things on our skin that will likely cause breakouts!
That being said, it WOULD be nice to have products that are totally natural and organic, right? Did you know that some of the natural oils can be some of the worst offenders in clogging your pores? ‘How can this be?’ you may say…. If you are acne-prone or prone to having clogged pores, it may not make a ton of sense as to why. Have you ever noticed that people with ‘problem skin’ oftentimes can take WAY BETTER care of their skin through having a skin care regimen than their neighbors with perfect skin? It’s not fair! Some people are more prone than others. Rather than demand to know WHY you have this type of skin, complain about HOW COME you don’t have effortlessly perfect skin; why don’t we live in the solution and do what we can. How can WE get that ‘no makeup look’ that some people seem to achieve? By doing what we can to avoid putting the ‘bad list’ on our face and putting GOOD things in our body. We take care of what is in our control and let nature ‘do its thing’ (because let’s face it, it’s going to anyways).
That was a long route of explaining that natural products are not always good for acne-prone skin. Because they can be pore-clogging. Also, science has come up with some pretty rad and effective anti-aging mechanisms and I want my anti-aging products to ‘pack a punch’ by steering that science to my face.
I have had many facials over the years by very knowledgeable and reputable Aestheticians in NYC, Palm Beach, Boca, etc. Never have I had a facial like Elle's. She has saved my skin!! I suffered from hormonal acne around the jawline and rosacea. Through her extremely thorough facials, expert extractions, and gentle touch, she has changed my skin! She's extremely patient and knowledgeable and answers all my questions in order to help educate me on what my skin needs. She is always available to answer a question I have about a product (even if it's not her product). She's a great person and a true healer.
So glad I found her and also, her own line of Headstrong products is phenomenal. She's also affordable so I can keep up my new habit of keeping my skin clear and happy. Thank you Elle!
