You have glowing skin. Share with us your hair care and skincare routine.
I think the secret to glowing and healthy-looking skin is to eat a healthy and well-balanced diet, to use skin care products every day, to protect your skin from UV rays and to keep your body hydrated.
I believe one of the most important products in the skin care regimen is sunscreen. I never leave my house without wearing my sunscreen. The second most important product is Retin A which speeds up the skin cell turnover and improves the skin tone and texture.
I also do in office skin care treatments such as micro needling with PRP and chemical peels on a regular basis. These two amazing treatments stimulate collagen production, promote skin tightening and improve skin tone and texture.
Five skincare myths.
1-The more expensive products work better for your skin.
2-Dark eye circles mean you are sleep deprived.
3-Dermal fillers and Botox make you look unnatural.
4-Start Botox treatment when you have formed lines and wrinkles.
5-You do not need sunscreen on cloudy days.

In the pursuit of giving back to society at this young age you strive to grow and have catapulted your platform to teach and care for others. You did a medical mission trip to Jamaica where you cared for pregnant and single mothers afflicted with disease and poverty. Your studies in nursing and patient care have landed you a position as a Nurse Educator, where your travel around the country leading workshops and classes, teaching doctors the benefits of advanced medical techniques in treating their patients. Tell us more about this humane personality of yours and how as a young celebrity in the world of star blitz you quench your thirst to do so much for the needy and the underprivileged.
One of the main reasons I switched my career from microbiology to nursing was my desire to help people. The Jamaica trip made me realize how blessed we are living in U.S. and having access to sophisticated health care system. It also opened my eyes to the value of education and giving back as an educator. That experience sparked my passion for teaching and taking care of patients.
I feel so grateful for my current job to have the skill sets and the tools to help people look and feel their best. It makes me so happy to hear from my clients that they feel more confident leaving my office. Unfortunately, aging can sometimes negatively impact one’s self-perception and confidence. Slight improvement in someone’s appearance or the flaw that has been bothering them can be a game changer for them.
You are an American Immigrant Icon which so many prospective American immigrants wish to live. You once said in an interview the five keys to achieving the American dream are Persistence, Positive Mindset, Hunger, Mentors, and Gratitude. Elaborate more about these virtues one should possess for those who are contemplating immigrating to the US.
Be persistent and never let anyone or anything get in your way. America provides so many opportunities to achieve a successful life. Don’t get discouraged because a few of your attempts did not work.
Positive mindset: Never forget about the widespread levels of healthy opportunities here that can give you a ladder to climb to success.
Hunger: Be hungry for the life you want. They say you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take. Never back down or be discouraged from a missed shot.
Mentors: Surround yourself with the people and mentors who are living the life you want to live. There is an abundance of people working in incredible fields and industries who are happy to help anyone if you just make the effort to call.
Gratitude: Always be thankful for the journey and not just the destination. Sometimes we get so caught up in the rat race that we forget to enjoy the process.
You are a celebrity cosmetic specialist and as a cosmetic injector you once wrote “My philosophy is that ‘less is more’ with injectables! My goal is not to alter my client’s natural beauty, but to enhance and maintain their beautiful look” Elaborate about this cosmetic procedure for the potential women who are planning to get the same done.
Cosmetic injections, if done right, can make people’s skin appear softer, younger, refreshed and rejuvenated rather than artificial and unnatural.
I try to maintain my client’s natural appearance by re-building the facial volume that they have lost over time due to natural process of aging.
No face ages the same way and that is why I approach each client’s cosmetic needs differently. I always start with a consultation, so I can take note of my client’s current appearance and create a tailored solution that will rejuvenate and refresh their appearance by pinpointing the specific areas that need attention. These treatment plans are tailored according to the individual facial structure, signs of aging, the depth of the patient’s lines and the strength of their facial muscles in order to give the most natural and youthful appearance.
