RI Beauty Expert: Inside/Out Beauty Care - Jahmeir Skincare Studio
Saturday, October 03, 2015
As a small child, Pamela’s single mom didn’t have much time or money for special skin care treats. Fast forwarding twenty years, finds Pamela, a single mom herself, creating simple natural skincare straight from her own kitchen. “I decided it was worth an hour a month to give myself a simple facial that kept my fair skin healthy and happy regardless of how busy I was”, says Pamela. A new business was soon born as Pamela began giving facials to her mother as well as handful of girlfriends who appreciated her soothing touch and comforting products.
Fast forward again, and this talented esthetician has hung her own shingle with the name, Jahmeir Skincare Studio on it. But make no mistake - in the intervening years, Pamela made sure to receive all the pertinent training and certifications that allow her to be called Master Esthetician, Cosmetologist, and Makeup Artist. “This is who I am”, she says and she truly believes every woman should take the time to see that the largest bodily organ, the skin, is well cared for.
The spa industry has certainly grown by leaps and bounds recently, but what sets Jahmeir Skincare apart is the very personal touch Pamela offers each client. Except for the soft lilting background music, her space is church-quiet and peaceful. Everything is immaculately clean without the clinical look. Pamela learns all the peccadilloes of her client’s skin in just a few sessions and then trims their care down to the essentials for them. If a client is prone to acne or has aging skin, Pamela will formulate the perfect treatment plan and recommendations. She relishes getting to know her clients intimately, listening with understanding to their special needs and concerns. Many clients come to the studio with scars, both physical and metaphoric, and Pamela’s gentle care restores both skin and psyche with kindness, skill, and good old-fashioned pampering.
Pamela uses a combination of “Western Science and Eastern Wisdom”, which means that products are as natural as possible but backed with emerging scientific knowledge. There are different facials to treat different conditions too - the Swiss Collagen Facial revitalizes and strengthens delicate aging skin and the Deep Pore Cleansing Facial is perfect for clients with excess oil. But no matter what the skin malady, Pamela will craft the perfect treatment to soothe, heal, and comfort.
What’s really special about Jahmeir Skincare Studio is that Pamela really cares. Having worked in the medical field too, her goal was to create a lovely, non-medicinal place where women (and men) can take a break from hectic lives and at the same time, have a relaxing facial in a tranquil, safe environment. And there’s nothing more beautifying, inside and out, than that. 2928 Post Rd., Warwick, 401/595-2851.
