I chose to name this space Basal Layer & Co. for many reasons. The basal cell layer is the fifth layer of the epidermis (the basement membrane) It is an active layer where cells undergo continuous cell division to replenish the regular loss of skin cells shed from the surface. When you marry healthy, active products, with performance-driven treatments that can stimulate cell division you’ll get beautiful, lasting results!

Using a holistic approach, in our community, we aim to be recognized as the leading “go-to” source for both relaxation and performance-driven solutions. The goal is to teach our clients healthy practices that align with their hearts desires physically, mentally, and spiritually. Balance in all is the foundation but, when the occasional over-indulgence does happen, we can help with that!

I can and I will.

What is my skin type?
It’s important to identify your personal skin type before choosing your products. Use the following descriptions to ensure a perfect match and to properly care for your skin.


Your skin feels dry and tight, and sometimes you can see flakes on your cheeks, chin and forehead. Fine lines may be present around your eye and lip contour areas. It is important to use moisture-rich products such as a daytime moisturizer, and a moisturizing treatment at night to repair your skin while you sleep. Weekly moisturizing masks will keep your skin soft and supple and will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Your skin is best described as well-balanced. It has even moisture and hydration, uniform texture and minimal sensitivity. While your skin may show slight variations in oiliness and dryness, it does not endure persistent skin concerns or conditions. To keep your skin even and toned, a good skin care routine including cleansing and moisturizing is a must.


Your skin is both dry and oily. With more active oil glands in your T-zone, you tend to exhibit the characteristics of oily skin on your chin, nose and forehead and normal-to-dry skin on your cheeks, jawline and hairline. The best approach for combination skin is to address the needs of each area individually. Use different skin care products and techniques to control excess oil in your T-zone and replenish moisture elsewhere.


Your skin is shiny, has visible pores and is prone to spots and blemishes. Makeup seems to slide off your skin as soon as it is applied. Oily skin has the benefit of not showing lines easily, but needs to be maintained to help prevent breakouts and to control shine.


Your skin has fine pores, can be easily irritated and is prone to redness. Sensitive skin is often genetic and can also react to poor diet, changes in weather, hormonal imbalance and certain cosmetic products. Sensitive skin must be treated with the correct skin care products that are gentle and soothing to heal your skin andShow Less

Are professional skincare treatments necessary?
There is simply no denying the importance of professional skincare treatments. With our education and expertise we have the right tools and products to ensure your face is in good hands. Professional exfoliation is key for the efficacy of your products. Better absorption means faster results and maintaining long term results. We also have deep cleaning techniques that will assist in a healthy balance as well as improved cellular health. It takes about 3 to 4 weeks for the shedding of the dead skin to happen and that rate slows down as you age so, schedule your treatments about every 5 to 6 weeks for maximum benefits.Show Less
How often should you exfoliate?
Although every skin type is different exfoliating if important for everyone. In most circumstances one to two times a week is recommended depending on the type of exfoliation. The objective is to dissolve and digest the layer of dead skin cells to encourage cellular renewal. That is the secret to glowing, smoother skin. There are several safe and effective ways to achieve beautiful results. Let our estheticians guide you through the many ways to put your best face forward!Show Less
What products should I have in my skincare regime?
For the best personalized approach visit Basal Layer & co. for an in-depth analysis. We will provide you with suggestions customized for the uniqueness of your skin. For starters our estheticians will recommend an appropriate cleanser, tonique, serum, eye cream, and moisturizer.Show Less
Do I need to wear sunscreen daily?
Yes! Wearing sunscreen is a preventative measure that reduces the effects of damaging, harmful, UV rays. 80% of the suns rays can pass through the clouds. Sunscreen is a healthy habit that should be maintained all year long. It prevents premature aging of the skin, lowers the risk of skin cancer and maintains an even skin tone. We recommend nothing lower than a 30 SPF. Eminence Organic Skincare offers some beautiful fortifying moisturizers with SPF to align with your skin type.Show Less
