Kimbra’s Top 3 Beauty Methods for Healthy Skin

1.     Double cleanse when you wash your face at night. First, wash your face to remove the makeup and dirt of the day. Second, wash your face to actually clean your pores.

2.     Invest in a professional line of skin care. Your daily routine will greatly extend the results of your treatments. And don’t be afraid to occasionally switch up your products. 

3.     Keep up with regular maintenance treatments. A professional treatment every 4-6 weeks will boost your skin and make your at-home routine more effective.


Kimbra’s Daily Inspiration

My mom’s mantra is the best: “Stop and smell and roses. Take a minute out of your day and be thankful for what you have.” I find this especially important for women in today’s hectic world – allowing ourselves to take a moment alone to reflect, savor, and be thankful for our lives.

Kimbra’s Modern Lifestyle Self-Care Methods

"I have children, so my life is a very, very busy one. One of my biggest investments is in my skincare products–it’s my routine at home that maintains my skin when life gets super busy. I also love working out at OrangeTheory and taking weekend getaways with my family–it grounds me and keeps me connected to all the important pieces of my life."


Dr. Anne Shaw

My journey to naturopathic medicine was a long and personal one!  When my 2nd daughter was sick as an infant, I searched and searched for a doctor that was able to help her.  I felt that I wasn't being directed toward helping her heal; rather I was being given medications to manage her symptoms.  And when these medications starting having side effects, I just knew there had to be a better way!  After months of struggle and searching, I finally found answers in "alternative" medicine.  Several years later, I embarked on a massive career change and completed ND medical school.   It is my mission to educate my community about their healthcare options, and about this wonderful naturopathic medicine that it took me so long to discover. I am a former high school teacher, mom of 4, pastor's wife, Phoenix native, amateur gardener, and I am thrilled to share this amazing medicine with you!

Alicia Szolowicz - AESTHETICIAN

Alicia started her journey in aesthetics in her 30’s when she started to see age set in.  She has always maintained a good skin care regimen but she wanted to become more educated and take her skin care routine to the next level. She began schooling at The Skin and Makeup Institute and her passion for skin care grew! After getting her license, she began working for a skin care company in Scottsdale to help other businesses select products for their specific cliental. This gave her an immense knowledge of skin care products and the benefits it provides our skin. She became passionate on educating others and wanted to expand this knowledge to a more hands on field.  Starting at “The Skin Suite” gave her the opportunity to be hands on and still educate clients on the importance of skin health and product knowledge.  With almost 10 years’ experience, she is continuing to grow her knowledge and share with others how they can maintain the integrity of their skin with good products, healthy diet, sunscreen daily and positive energy! She enjoys traveling, working out and hiking in nature, and as a mom of four, she knows how important it is to invest in yourself.  She knows firsthand how important it is to take a break and recharge.  She believes that it is not only taking care of your skin on the outside but taking care of yourself on the inside.
