Licensed aesthetician Patricia Guerrera employs her 15 years of professional experience and rejuvenating products from Rejuvenation Concept Organic, Dermalogica, and ARC to bring out the natural beauty in hardworking skinparts. During a 45-minute anti-aging facial, dead skin cells slough off to reveal the young epidermis underneath and leave skin as supple, smooth, and hydrated as a stick of room-temperature butter. The 60-minute organic peel fights off fine lines and sun damage by swaddling skin cells in an organic mixture derived from pumpkin, which squash farmers consider to be nature’s most youthful gourd.
Professional makeup artist Patricia Guerrera has accrued 15 years of beauty experience in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, and Boston, where she mastered an aesthetic art that accentuates clients’ natural comeliness for special occasions. The Montecito Messenger sings Tru Beauty’s praises, crowing that the organic facial products work “instantly” and that clients feel “spoiled.” Guerrera tackles finer details with lash and brow-tint services or eyelash applications, all of which help eyes garner more attention than Sophia Loren in a clown costume. Facials cleanse the countenance with organic and high-end products, and facial or Brazilian waxes lift away unwanted fuzz. Guerrera wields upscale makeup products such as M.A.C and Benefit Cosmetics when she prepares faces for weddings, special occasions, or long stints of hiding from the mob. The thorough makeovers begin with primer and foundation, and then intensify personal pulchritude with mascara, cheek color, lipstick, and eye shadow.
