You know how brutal winter (yes even here in Southern California!) can be on the skin. The change in temperature, both inside your office and home as well as outside can wreak havoc on your skin. Right when I felt like I was hitting a breaking point (or breakout as the case was), I heard about a new skincare salon called Mayet Skincare that opened in Santa Monica, and near blocks from my house, I had to try it out.

Seti Mayet is a soft-spoken woman with gorgeous flawless skin (I suppose a necessary feature as a facialist!) who is passionate about skin. She recalls stories of her "calling" back when she was a teenager and would make homemade masks and treatments for herself and friends. Her stories sounded like my grocery list, eggs, butter, oatmeal, honey and avocado - all with very specific outcomes and ways they can help the skin.

It wasn't until Seti was an adult, with a sudden case of adult acne, that she remembered this passion of hers. Looking around the market for products, she found that many dermatologists would prescribe medicine to get rid of the acne, but not dig deeper to the cause. Products on the market were harsh and full of chemicals.
