Pam­per your skin at any age

Woman brings spa treat­ments to homes, offices

The Covington News - - Business -

For Kristi Ogle­tree main­tain­ing a skin health reg­i­men isn’t just good ad­vice, it’s a phi­los­o­phy she lives by.

“ If you’ve got it, pam­per it,” said Ogle­tree, a Beau­tiCon­trol con­sul­tant, of how peo­ple should treat their skin.

A user of Beau­tiCon­trol skin­care for two years now, Ogle­tree said she was so im­pressed with the qual­ity of their prod­ucts that she be­gan sell­ing them her­self last Fe­bru­ary.

Beau­tiCon­trol of­fers skin­care prod­ucts spe­cially de­signed for women in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s and over. In­gre­di­ents in­clude av­o­cado oil, eu­ca­lyp­tus, macadamia nuts and Dead Sea salts.

“ The one thing that sets us apart from other skin­care com­pa­nies is our skin­care is tar­geted to­wards the age your skin is act­ing, not nec­es­sar­ily your chrono­log­i­cal age,” Ogle­tree said.

There are also skin care prod­ucts for acne- prone skin and sen­si­tive skin. Makeup and skin­care and cologne prod­ucts de­signed for men are sold as well.

Ogle­tree said she likes the fact that Beau­tiCon­trol is price com­pet­i­tive with other skin­care lines in­clud- ing Lancôme and Clin­ique.

“ It’s a lot less ex­pen­sive than what you would go in and buy at Belk,” Ogle­tree said.

Us­ing Beau­tiCon­trol prod­ucts is also a lot cheaper than go­ing to the spa, she said. While a one- time mi­cro­der­mabra­sion treat­ment at a high- end spa will cost about $ 100, the midro­der­mabra­sion cream that Beau­tiCon­trol sells is $ 60.50 and will last for 10- 15 treat­ments Ogle­tree said.

“ They’re high- end spa treat­ments that are done in your home,” Ogle­tree said. “ We’re more cost ef­fec­tive.”

As a con­sul­tant for Beau­tiCon­trol, Ogle­tree is avail­able for home spa par­ties and school, church and of­fice em­ployee ap­pre­ci­a­tion days. Hostesses of par­ties re­ceive 50 per­cent off any prod­ucts that they buy at the party. They can also earn other re­wards based on the amount of prod­ucts that are sold.

Home spa par­ties in­clude a com­plete fa­cial, a hand treat­ment, a lip treat­ment, a foot treat­ment and re­lax­ation treat­ments. Spa par­ties at the of­fice do not in­clude the fa­cial treat­ment.

“ Th­ese make for fun ladies’ night out,” Ogle­tree said, adding that spe­cial lines of mar­garita and chocolate skin­care prod­ucts are also of­fered.

All spa treat­ments at par­ties are com­pli­men­tary Ogle­tree said. She is also avail­able for fundrais­ers. For a school fundraiser,

Spa at home: Ogle­tree will do­nate 10 per­cent of the day’s sales to the school’s Par­ent Teacher As­so­ci­a­tion.

Ogle­tree asks for a one­week no­tice for of­fice par­ties and two- week no­tice for home par­ties.
