Your 6-Step Online Skincare Consultation Includes:
1. Your Top Skin Concerns
We’ll begin with an in-depth questionnaire. I’ll ask you to explain the kind of goals you have for your skin. It’s best to be as transparent as possible here so I can give you the best guidance. Don’t shy away from any of the questions that I will ask you about your skin. These comprehensive questions and responses will provide key insights into various skin conditions, your specific needs, and also help hone in on areas to improve. Remember – this is your skin and last I checked, you only get one face, so sharing as much information as possible will help me guide you in the right direction.
2. Breaking it All Down
Some skin types and skin conditions can be more nuanced than others, especially when you’re trying to differentiate between the two. I’m guessing you don’t know how to tell if your skin is dry or dehydrated or both? I am happy to break it down for you. There are other lifestyle factors that I will look at. For instance, how much sleep you get, how often you travel, what your diet is like, how much time you spend in the sun… etc. These are among the many factors that affect your skin, including hormone levels, and increased stress levels. You will be asked about all of these factors on the questionnaire. Again, it’s best if you don’t hold back. The more information the better.
3. Do You Nourish Your Skin?
Most people don’t know how to properly care for their specific skin type, which is why they run into trouble. That’s why I want to provide you with helpful advice on how foods can help, so your skin can start healing from the inside-out. Bad eating habits can and will affect the overall appearance of the skin’s surface, so it’s best to start by changing your diet. I’ll take you through some things you need to do, such as, eating healthier and drinking more water. You’ll face questions like:
- Which type of foods should you eat and which ones should you avoid?
- Do you skip any meals?
- How much water are you drinking?
Please note, I am not a doctor or registered dietician so this is just for informational purposes only.
4. An In-Depth Look into Your Skincare Drawer
Another aspect of the consultation that will also be covered is your products. What products are you currently using? Unfortunately, not everything that you have in your bathroom drawer or cabinet will be suitable for treating your skin. You’ll find that some treatments you might be using on your face are actually making it worse. Yikes! For better results, please make sure that you list out all that you are currently using on the consultation questionnaire for proper assessment. This will help me give you a non-biased review of your current routine and advanced products you might already be using. Please include the brand and product names.
5. SPF Demystified
We all spend time in the sun, but we’re each affected by it differently. Did you know that sitting near a sunny window counts as sun exposure? There are 2 kinds of radiation that we need to protect ourselves against – UVA and UVB. Did you know that sunscreen products also vary and not all of them will protect you against both types of radiation? The more you know, right? 🙂 At this point in the consult, I’ll provide you with answers to the many questions on your mind pertaining to SPF and how to care for your skin before, during, and after sun exposure.
6. Your Best Routine
As we discussed earlier, all skin types are not the same. That is why I’ll be assessing your skin type plus your skin’s current condition so I can provide you with the best treatment plan for it. This plan will specifically address the different issues that your skin has, the concerns and skincare objectives you want to achieve (like oiliness, fine lines, or hyperpigmentation), and even some product suggestions that will help you have healthier, glowing skin.
Can I wear makeup in the photos I submit for my consultation?
Please don’t – it’s not a great idea; I need to see your bare beautiful face to better assess it. Since this is an online consult and I am not able to touch or feel your skin, no makeup will allow me to better evaluate your skin and give you some proper skincare advice!
What’s your cancellation and refund policy?
When you’ve submitted your payment, you’re confirming that you understand the reservation and the cancellation policy given by Your Natural Color Palette, and you consent to your credit card on file being charged. If you do not abide by the stipulated time of giving notice, that is within the 24-hour period after booking your consultation, you have to pay the stipulated fee.
What can I expect to receive after my online skin consultation?
After I’ve completed your skin consultation, you’ll receive a personalized follow-up within 5 business days that includes: step-by-step routine instructions, diet and lifestyle advice, specific product recommendations for your specific skin and budget, and a referral to a board-certified dermatologist, if requested. You will get tips and a personalized plan for your use only. No plan is the same with each of my clients because as we have seen, everyone’s skin is unique.
Is it really possible for you to assess my skin through pictures?
Yes. If you take pictures of your face for me in good lighting and you fill out each and every question thoroughly on the questionnaire that should be enough to suffice for a proper skin assessment.
