With “ maskne”,winter blast 🥶 weather and stress from the pandemic were in… it is all taking a toll on our skin. So, I decided to interview one of my favorite’s in the skin care industry. If you read this blog you know I am an educator in the beauty & spa industry. But ALL our shows and show season have halted because of the time we’re in.
I so MISS educating, going to shows and conferences and seeing my friends in beauty. Victoria Tabak is one of them. She is not only a skin care expert but following her on Instagram is so much fun. So, if you haven’t discovered her yet you might want to look her up @victoriatabak for her expertise and skin care words of wisdom.
CEO of Nature Pure Labs and so much more!
Mom, Educator, Speaker, Writer, Licensed Esthetician
I see you are a mom. How many children? How do you juggle your family and business?
3 boys, they’re 7, 4 and 2, so I am always running around.
I’ll be completely straightforward, it is extremely difficult and I’m still learning & trying to get it right, but one thing that’s for sure is that at any given moment something’s gotta give.
Having clearly defined boundaries definitely helps moderate stress, but it is challenging to maintain those boundaries because being a Mom is a full-time job, meanwhile so is being a business owner, it requires you to intentionally shift attention and focus all day long. I am certainly a work in progress, like my business, but every day moving forward, taking one step at a time.
What is your most popular product? Or products that clients covet?
This is a tough question because there are many popular products based on skin concerns & type of product from over 100 different products, but if I had to shave it down to top 3 all around hero products, definitely Instant Energizer Oxygen Masque, Dead Sea Salt Crystal Peel & Black Currant C Serum.
How would YOU describe your brand vegan, organic, natural?
Nature Pure Clinical Skin Care, is a holistic wellness brand first. Every product is backed by science while marrying traditional herbal and botanical remedies to deliver professional results for skin, body & hair. Products are natural, paraben-free, animal cruelty free, leaping bunny certified, formulated with certified organic botanicals and majority of the products are vegan and gluten free.
How do you recommend a client determines her skin type? Or types? An easy way that my blog readers can do quickly.
An easy way to determine your basic skin type is by answering these 3 questions
- Do your pores look large or small? Larger pores are typically associated with oily skin, smaller pores are associated with more dry skin.
- Does your t-zone get shiny or greasy in the t-zone area of your face especially midday? This is typical with the most common combination skin type.
- When you press with your thumb on your forehead does it leave a white spot surrounded by redness? This typically means you have sensitive skin.
What’s your best beauty secret? Besides sunscreen that you’d like to share with my blog readers and followers.
*Update your skin care regimen routinely and seasonally. I never let my skin get used to any one thing, and the beauty is, in 25 years of Nature Pure’s history, there are over 100 different product solutions to choose from and rotate between.
Do you have a product for crepey skin? It’s a popular question women ask me lately.
Stem Cells Youthful Tissue Rejuvenator, though it may feel tingly & can even turn the skin a bit flush in the first 15 minutes of application, it is the immaculate skin solution for regenerating, smoothing & increasing volume to crepey skin with daily consistent use.
Just for fun… 😍If you were a makeup or skin care product what would you be?
If I were a product I would be the Nature Pure Instant Energizer Oxygen Masque, it feels like butterfly kisses on the face while instantly transforming the appearance of the skin.
