illustrationlogo98w241hIn three weeks, I’ll be thirty-one. No longer “just turned thirty” but “in my thirties” or “thirty-something”…geesh. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving all this wisdom that I’ve acquired in my three plus decades, and I still get carded at the club and approached by guys who are not even old enough to buy me a drink.

But, it seems like everything during adulthood requires more work – relationships, success, happiness and yes, beauty! Not only am I stacking the cupboards and refrigerator with organic treats to improve and maintain my body, but I recently went on a mission to find organic skincare treatments in the hopes of preserving a youthful glow.

Maybe it’s luck or simply fate that I stumbled upon Joanna Vargas a.k.a miracle worker. Joanna has her own boutique salon in Manhattan, has worked with numerous celebs and is known for using non-invasive, anti-aging techniques along with organic skincare products.

To be honest, I went into that salon not expecting to see any immediate results. I usually shy away from facials because of my sensitive skin and as a thirty year old black woman, I’m not exactly worried about wrinkles or fine lines at this point. All I wanted were clear pores and a routine that would help me preserve what I’m already working with.

I got their signature, anti-aging Triple Crown Facial. It’s a three step facial that begins with microdermabrasion then microcurrent and ends with pure oxygen infused with an antioxidant serum. It sounded like I was getting the works, and it was a gentle, relaxing experience. But, after Joanna applied the microcurrent on the left side of my face and asked me to take a look in the mirror. I was speechless!

There was a significant difference. My cheeks looked more defined, no puffiness around my nose and eyes and a tighter jaw line. Guess I didn’t notice the slight changes over the years, but one half of the woman in the mirror looked five years younger than the other. According to Joanna, toxins from alcohol (those damn French martinis) and lack of sleep can cause sagging muscles and inflammation.

The microdermabrasion exfoliated my dead skin and then the face muscles and skin are stimulated with microcurrent to promote collagen and elastin. It’s absolutely amazing and just one of those things that you have to experience to believe. This treatment will run you $250 to $325 but it’s a long term investment that’s worth every penny. Think of your favorite designer shoes and bags and whether they make you look younger or more beautiful.

The salon also uses and sells all organic toners, masks, exfoliators as well as other stuff for your hair, body and even home. I think this spot will be on my list of places to frequent.

What kind of experience have you had with facials and/or organic products? Do you have a tip or question about anti-aging or organic treatments?
