A Peek into Pleasant Care
So, a little more time has passed since beginning this new skin experiment, meaning I have a few more updates!
Firstly, I want to give a progress report on the personal skincare journeys of us interns here at Pleasant Care. I want to introduce a lovely little lady named Joanne who joined us last week at the pharmacy as well! Last week Joanne compounded a skin cream for herself so she has only been using it for about four days now. As skin conditions vary widely, Joanne’s main concerns about her skin include her eczema. Although she does not have any big changes to proclaim to the world yet (unfortunately this isn’t pure magic), she has had no adverse reactions or flare-ups of her existing eczema, which is an excellent sign! Going back to Jade and Elena—Jade has noticed her skin feeling more “supple” and colored, with her texture becoming a little more even. Jade’s main concerns were regarding oiliness, and personally I think her skin is looking fantastic. Elena however, has reported her skin being a little dry so she has cut back on the amount of the product she uses at one time. Using these personalized products is not a fairytale wave of a magic wand; it does take time as well as trial-and-error, but consistency does pay off. As for me, I think my acne scars are definitely starting to fade around the sides of my face a little more. I’ll admit, I have been very stressed lately and touching my face a lot so I have been breaking out around my nose. The real miracle is how my skin isn’t worse considering how poorly I have been treating it lately—that being said, I am really enjoying the way that my cream feels on my face as well as well as how it is beginning to even out my tone. I do not have huge improvements, as it takes at the very least a few weeks of consistent use to notice, but I really like what I am seeing in the mirror. Next goal for Neda: wear more sunscreen and tone down the stress level!
Secondly, I want to shed a little light on some of the activities that our pharmacy is participating in. We are attending a health fair at the University of San Francisco (USF) next week on March 4th. We will have a lot of information about our compounding pharmacy, what ingredients we could choose for your skin type to help create your very own formula based on your skin conditions/concerns, educational brochures, and more! This information is not limited to health fair participants either, so if you would like to get on our email list, or request a consultation or information, please feel free to contact us! Our full contact info is located at the tab at the top of the website, and you email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
