On the Clock: Jennifer Bell
summit daily news
When you talk to Serenity Spa esthetician Jennifer Bell about her approach to skin care, she talks more about lifestyle, diet and stress levels than about what creams or potions you should be applying to get that radiant look to your skin.
“We try to work with (clients) to make changes that will last forever, and not just give them a product to take home and use. It’s not a quick-fix solution,” the 30-years-young Bell says.
“So much of skin care is about your stress levels, your lifestyle, your diet ” they all affect your skin because your skin is an elimination organ,” she explains.
She calls her professional strategy a “holistic” approach to skin care, which is why she’s so drawn to the natural, plant-derived Aveda products that you’ll find in Keystone’s Serenity Spa, where’s she’s worked for the past two and a half years. Serenity is the only Aveda spa in Summit County.
“That’s one thing I do like about working with Aveda ” I know where the products come from, from soil to bottle. When I go home at night, I feel good about everything that I’ve used. I don’t worry about people having problems,” she says.
She’s also quick to point out that Serenity also offers their own, natural version of the chemical peel or microderm abrasion ” a service typical to most spas, but which often can irritate and prematurely age the skin. Serenity calls their version “botanical resurfacing.” The spa also offers specific acne treatments as well. Bell herself is also a makeup artist, catering to the many brides that descend on Keystone to get married throughout the year.
But it’s skin that’s Bell’s specialty, and it was another local esthetician and friend ” Yvonne Zook, who has a skin care business in Frisco ” who helped her realize that being an esthetician was the career for her.
“I always thought she was so cool, and she had such beautiful skin. I was always asking her about it,” Bell recalls. She started studying in Denver about skin care and natural healing, and eventually wound up at Serenity, a spa she’s proud to work for. She reminds that Serenity is a business very involved in local charities and volunteer programs, going beyond the call for the community.
“I kind of like the fact that I work at a place that is good for the environment that I love, and gives back to the community that has given me so much,” Bell says.
