I was 19 years old when I received my first facial, and it literally changed my life. It was an awakening, an epiphany, and the first step on a path I’ve been following ever since.


The glowing complexion. The well-groomed brows. The deep, healing relaxation opened my eyes and my mind to the concept that has become my business and personal philosophy: Skincare = Self Care.


You see, we are Holistic Beings ~ Mind, Body, Spirit ~ and each of these aspects of ourselves require maintenance and attention. A really great facial (the kind I offer!) has the power to address your Whole Being in about an hours’ time.


How so? Let me count the ways: 


 MIND: There's nothing quite like receiving bodywork that brings the feeling of drifting away into an Alpha State (Light Sleep, Dreams, Creative Visualization, Connection to the Subconscious)


BODY:  The skin is our largest organ and an outward reflection of what's happening inside.  Nourishing the skin from the inside & outside is an important part of caring for overall health.


SPIRIT: A facial is a nurturing treatment that offers an opportunity to let go, while trusting that the Esthetician is taking care of everything. Your spirituality is completely honored in this space.

I look forward to seeing you soon!

Love & Beauty,

  • Happy 5th Anniversary to Complexions On Carter Skincare Boutique!

    Happy New Year!  I realize we are in February now. January flew by, as have the last FIVE years!

  • Summer Skincare Tips!

    SUMMERTIME IS HERE! A few simple tips for caring for your skin in the hottest months of the year: Wear Sunscreen ~ after the first sunny weekend I'm already seeing lots of scorched skin ~ we're not used to it so protect your skin by using a physical block - look for Zinc Oxide and Titanium dioxide as active ingredients - SPF 30 (my faves: Bio-shield Oil-free spf 30 w/ plant stem cells (PSC); Lira BB Tint; Image Oil-free Tinted Spf 30) Drink Water with Lemon~ keep hydrated from the inside out by ...

  • Plant Stem Cells - The Future of Skincare

    17 years ago I stepped onto my skincare path at the Aveda Institute of Minneapolis. At the time, the school was still owned by Aveda's Founder, Horst Rechelbacher. Attending the program at that time was a truly amazing experience for the 20-year old me, opening my eyes, ears and awareness to the philosophy of Ayurveda (Sanskrit for The Science of Life); Plant-based products; Organic eating; the many styles of Yoga; Essential Oils vs.

  • Dry? Dehydrated? Flaking Skin?

     This week (January 21st-25th, 2013) has been particularly tough on complexions all around Minnesota, with the extreme cold and record-breaking windchill temps! The lack of moisture in the air makes it hard to keep skin hydrated. 3 simple steps can help: 1.

  • Seasons Change!

    What an absolutely lovely fall we've been having! Blue skies, sunshine, yellow leaves falling around us ~ truly spectacular! However, this change marks another effect: cooler, crisper, DRY air (the drought is catching up to the Land of 10,000 Lakes!) and our precious complexions are feeling it, too.

  • Grand Opening Party Tomorrow!

    I can hardly contain my excitement for the event I've been anticipating for nearly 6 MONTHS!  The Grand Opening Garden Party Celebration along with my amazing Esthetician MJ Harden, my fabulous new neighbors Sharri Keller & Vanessa Carrera of Satori Photography (these two lovely ladies took all the photos here on the COC website!), friends, family, clients and anyone who wants to check out our new business spaces in Milton Square!  Product & Service Specials:  1 Product ::...

  • Summer Skin Love

    Since it's an early summer and the sun is shining ~ If there is one thing you can do to support your skin's natural ability to protect itself from UV radiation, it's having a love affair with Green Tea. It's a magic potion packed with antioxidants, has a bit of caffeine to stimulate your metabolism, fights & burns fat and helps your skin protect itself from the sun. So drink lots of hot OR iced green tea this summer!

  • Your Inner Goddess wants to take front and center!

    The sun is shining, birds are chirping, new life abounds in the gardens, and we put away our warm, heavy winter clothes and fill our closet with colorful, light summer clothes!  Lighten up even more with an exfoliating & hydrating Signature Facial, a bright & cheerful lip gloss, and the inner glow that comes naturally when you take time to pamper yourself.  You deserve it.  When you let the Goddess within rule your world, the results in your life are amazing!

  • You have ONE Face.
