Happy Holidays!

Well it's been quite a crazy few months.  I am working at a cosmetics company called DermaQuest, learning everything about the business of high end skin care.  It's been an adventure, to say the least.  I am still in transition.  Things are going well.  I can't report too much because a lot of stuff is "in the works" and a month or so from now, I hope to have a more important announcement.

In the meantime, I am still happily offering skin care treatments from the Bella Forte Beauty Lounge and now have some amazing education and products to share.

I'll share more when I have more time!!


2012 was a bit of a struggle, personally and professionally.  But things are looking WAY UP.  Pistol and I are ready to move forward to success and happiness - at full-speed.

End-of-Summer DETOX! Your Skin Needs it.

Summer is winding down.  It's a little sad, isn't it?  All of that time enjoying the outdoors and long summer nights might be showing up on your skin: sunburns, wind, sunscreen, less sleep and passing out without washing your face will cause patchy skin, break-outs, dryness, oiliness, dullness and clogged pores.

Get back on track and get a professional DETOX FACIAL or BACK TREATMENT SPECIAL:

- Deep cleaning with steam and ozone
- Mild to deep exfoliation, depending on skin's condition
- High Frequency treatment
- Seaweed Mask with chamomile and aloe vera to nourish, detoxify, rebalance, hydrate and regenerate oily, congested skin OR
- Multi-Vitamin Mask to deeply hydrate and nourish dry, damaged skin
- Oil-free hydrating serum or Vitamin C Anti-Oxidant moisturizer depending on skin type
- Sunscreen

A professional Detox Skin Treatment will go the extra mile by not only deep cleaning the pores, but also by killing lingering bacteria beneath the skin's surface, and stimulating cell regeneration.  A professional esthetician can do this by using the ozone function on the facial steamer, combined with the high frequency machine.  Ozone is stimulated oxygen and has been used for many years to speed up stubborn break-outs and increase healing.  It doesn't hurt, is completely safe and healthy for your skin (but not to be used on pregnant women, people with large metal implants or pacemakers).

You can also do a Detox Facial at home if you don't have the time or money.  Check out my blog from last year with step-by-step instructions DIY DETOX FACIAL - Be a Bitchen Kitchen Beautician.

I'm offering a great END-of-SUMMER deal: Get a Detox Facial and Back Treatment for only $50.   Make it $65 and I will travel to your house (in Oakland/SF area).  The regular price for each treatment is $35.  You save $20!

I just did my first Baby Shower Spa Party a month ago.  I performed hand/arm treatments and neck/shoulder massages.  I also created scrubs, soaps and bath bombs with super cute packaging and utilized the invitation logo, date and name of the Mom-to-Be.

It was so much fun, and a smashing success, so I have now expanded my skin care services to include Spa Parties and House Calls!  Customize your  special event with mini-facials, peels, waxing, body treatments and neck/shoulder massages on your party menu.

Also, I can target age groups, skin issues and themes:
Kids parties with gentle mini-facials and DIY projects like soap-making and mask-making with fresh fruits;
Teen parties with special attention and information about treating teen skin issues;
Anti-Aging parties focusing on the best treatments for aging skin: brown spots, wrinkles, dryness, sensitivities; Theme parties focusing on romance, pre-concert festivities, birthdays, divorce, anti-stress, summer solstice, etc.

If you really want to make it special, I can create personalized scrubs, lotions and soaps and labels with your party's logo, a special quote, whatever you want!

What a great gift for a special person: Brides, Moms-to-Be, Birthday Girls, the Broken Hearted...You bring the booze and I'll bring the pampering.

If you are local, and want to stay home and have the spa experience come to you, get a full facial, peel, waxing or body treatment.  Prices start at $50 for the first custom facial (plus an extra $10 to go over the bridge or for locations over 10 miles away).  Add-on prices remain the same.  Each additional person is only $30.  It's a great treat for you and a couple of friends.
