Skin care: blog 7

Mattie is now ready to explore skincare, make-up, and sheitels (wigs).

Meet Rachel Ioukhvets 



Rachel is a New York State licensed Esthetician and make-up artist. She is a beauty specialist who offers facials (including acne, anti-aging and back facials), aromatherapy and paraffin body treatments.


 She also offers make-up application for all occasions, full and partial body waxing. She is elegant, gentle and extremely skilled.


Rachel attended Capri beauty school, where she studied advanced eyebrow design. She has also taken additional coursework in advanced waxing, advanced skin analysis and massage techniques.

Rachel visits Mattie:

Rachel has been working with private clients in their homes for five years in Rockland County, New York. Mattie is happy to become her client.


Rachel used soft lavender wax, tweezers and a small brush to shape Mattie’s brows into a natural, clean look and open the area around her eyes.

Rachel specializes in gentle waxing, eyebrow shaping and even has special wax for young clients.



Facials are a relaxing way to address your skin care needs:

Rachel uses her own private line of products which contain natural ingredients.  


Rachel applied a cleanser on Mattie’s skin which contained blueberries and coffee bean extracts. ( sounds like a delicious breakfast…) She then removed the cleanser with hot towels and placed soothing pads around Mattie’s eyes.

Rachel then used a magnifying glass to classify Mattie’s skin as “Normal”. (skin can also be dry, oily or a combination) It is important to know your skin type so that you can choose the correct products. 


After using the cleanser, Rachel performed a facial massage and applied an aloe mask to soothe Mattie’s skin after waxing. Rachel offers a variety of delicious masks for a variety of skin needs. (I think I might book an anti-aging pumpkin mask). During the mask treatment, Rachel also treated Mattie to a hand massage using coconut and aromatherapy oils. 


Rachel finished Mattie’s treatments by applying a Marine moisturizer. 

Rachel’s recommendations for daily skin care for Mattie:

“It is important to cleanse and moisturize your skin every day. At night, remove your make-up and use a night cream.” 

Thank you Rachel

Mattie shares about this experience…

My experience with Rachel was not just “another facial”. I felt the warmth and caring about my inner self come through at every step.”
