Stories From South Beach: Martha's Story

The past couple of months have been quite busy here at South Beach Skin Lab, so our team hasn’t had as much time as we would have liked to spend catching up with customers and seeing how they’re doing with their skincare routines.

One customer, though, forced us to make time for a quick chat, and we’re so glad she did…

Martha has been a South Beach Skin Lab customer since 2021, and although she’s only been part of the family for 2 years, she’s tried every single one of our products.

“I started with the Repair and Release Cream, and slowly but surely I made my way through your products. I can honestly say there’s not a single one I don’t love!”

Martha confessed that she has a slight obsession with skincare. She’s tried almost every type of product and has had a lot of crazy experiences with new and wacky kinds of treatments.

“I once got a deal on a Vampire facial! It was a little scary, but I always wanted to try it and see what difference it made in my skin.”

When we asked her if she’d ever do it again, this is what she had to say:

“I’m glad I did it, but honestly I wouldn’t pay for it again. It’s so expensive and I have seen some comparable results from my South Beach Skin Lab products, which are much cheaper!”

Although Martha loves trying new treatments and facials, she said she hasn’t found a treatment that can replace her skincare routine.

“You can have all the money in the world to spend on fancy facials and spa days, but if you’re not putting in the work every day at home, you won’t get the results you want.”

It’s true! The secret to great results comes from consistency. Even the most simple products can make a huge difference in your skin if you’re using them every day, twice a day.

Another topic of conversation we discussed with Martha was the topic of stress.

We told her how busy things had been at South Beach Skin Lab and that the team was under a lot of pressure to make sure our customers were happy and being taken care of.

“I’ve had to deal with my fair share of stress. Before I retired I was a lawyer, and I had to learn to manage my stress because I saw how much it showed in my skin if I wasn’t careful!”

With experience in such a demanding job, we just had to know what her secret was!

“Apart from all the usual stuff like relaxation and exercise, I actually turned to my skincare routine to help me decompress after a long day. Products like your Lavender Oil Cleanser helped not only my skin but also my frame of mind!”

About Martha

And we understand why! Lavender Oil has been known to be a calming scent, so we can understand how it would help her relax at the end of the day.

“When I’m too stressed, my skin starts to get sensitive and I notice that my wrinkles get slightly worse. Having the Lavender Oil Cleanser has totally changed that, because not only does it help me calm down, but it has also helped with some of my wrinkles!”

Scientifically, Lavender oil is an antioxidant, which can help smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.

“I love products that have multiple benefits, so the fact that this works on keeping my wrinkles under control and it also helps me relax mentally is incredible!”

Besides her tips on managing stress, Martha had one final piece of advice to leave us with…

“You can spend as much time and money as you want on your skincare products and treatments, but if you don’t take care of your mental and emotional well-being, you could see it manifest in your skin and your body. Take care of your mind and your body will thank you.”

Through this busy time at South Beach Skin Lab, we really needed to hear this amazing advice. We’re certainly going to keep it in mind so we can continue to be there for customers just like Martha!
