sS + mindbodygreen collaboration

though it’s been really quiet over here on a social media front, i’ve been busy with some really big projects behind the scenes, that will be revealed in the coming months. (it also just dawned on me that most people probably don’t know that skinsalvation is a one-woman show – me! alongside kerry, who handles the treatment side in our san francisco clinic).

one of these projects i was very fortunate to be a part of was a collaboration with mindbodygreen! with this first video of the series, we hone in on the 6 super common mistakes that we see clients make when washing their face. you can really boost results of your regimen with these simple tricks without spending a dime on new products (unless you need to stock up on acne-safe products, use this tool to check your stash!).

click here to the mindbodygreen website to see the full video, and get all the nitty gritty details you know i am crazy about, and let us know what else you want to see covered in our collaboration!

online shop : discontinued product list

hi lovely sS’ers,

i hope you are enjoying summer! as you know (from our last newsletter back in march right before our move!), in addition to getting some downtime to rest and reset, i am also working on some major sS restructuring. you can expect all the details on that shortly in a clinic-wide email blast, but i thought i’d start off with a list of products we are going to discontinue carrying (along with where you can continue to purchase them, and any other notes i conjured up).

at the time of this writing, these products are still acne-safe, i am just on a quest to streamline our offerings to make running sS more sustainable to provide better service for our clients! please take a look at the list and stock up on our online shop, and feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.

if you are a client using any of these exfoliating toners:

  • 7.5% mandelic blend
  • 7.5% mandelic + d2o blend
  • 10% mandelic toner
  • glycolactic toner
  • sterilizing toner

please contact me if you are interested in helping me research what alternatives will work best for you by emailing frontdesk@skinsalvationsf.com.

many thanks for your understanding and continued support of my business through these transitions!

love,
kim
