Hi There Karena!  Here's your August issue of the GO BE GREAT MONTHLY NEWSLETTER.  




Last month it was all about rewards for me.  How can I set meaningful rewards that are genuinely specific for me?  So...what did I do?  I tried something new!  At least new to me.

Last month I had what's called a BACK FACIAL 😱 so rather than having all of the facial steps performed on my face...it was done on my back.  (WHO KNEW THIS WAS A THING!)

One of the things I have been doing recently is taking care of my personal care. I've realized over the years that I can't put it off.

I've also realized that it doesn't happen for me, but instead, it happens BECAUSE of me.  

So, weekly I try to have some sort of personal care experience 🎊.  It doesn't have to be anything major. Sometimes it's just a simple manicure or pedicure. Other times I'll go for a massage or facial or maybe even a chiropractic adjustment.

I had never had a back facial before, but after my esthetician talked me through the process, I was game!☺️

The first step is always a consultation. This is where you and the esthetician discuss your skin type, concerns, and what you hope to achieve from the facial.

After that, it's time to get started!

The first step of any facial is cleansing. My esthetician used a cleanser on my back.

Next, she did a skin analysis. She looked at my back and determined what, if any, additional products needed to be used. 🧖🏾‍♀️

After that, she applied a steam towel to my back. The steam helps to open up your pores and makes the extractions easier.

Once my pores were nice and open, she did a manual exfoliation. This helps to remove any dead skin cells that are sitting on the surface of your skin.

After the exfoliation, it was time for extractions. My esthetician used a small tool to help remove any blackheads or congestion in my pores.

The last step of the facial was a massage. She used a hydrating lotion and massaged it into my skin.

I left feeling so relaxed, and my skin felt amazing! 😀

If you're thinking about getting a back facial, 🎯 I would highly recommend it!

One thing she did say was that I have 'next to perfect' skin back there. Not sure how that happened when all I've ever done was washed and dried it. 🥺

BTW - this particular self-care was a reward for hitting one of the business goals that I set for myself in July. My goal was to restructure a portion of my back office to create a better workflow for myself and my Assistant.  

The goal was ACCOMPLISHED, and I got my BACK FACIAL!  So here's a picture of me feeling all refreshed and ready to move on to the next goal! Remember 🤓 each SMALL goal leads to MASSIVE accomplishments.

Think of some ways you're rewarding yourself for accomplished goals, hit that reply button, and let me know how things are going! 👇🏾
