What better way to beat the rush than by slowing down and taking a breather? Recently, The Tolucan Times sent me on assignment to Skin Space for a unique experience. Not only was it my first facial, it was just what I needed at the beginning of the hustle and bustle of the holidays.
Christine Tataje, the owner/operator of Skin Space, says her clients receive treatment that is “not only excellent for their skin, but is rejuvenating as well.” Skin Space, a new skincare studio in the NoHo Arts District, has been in town for one year and serves the community with several features such as: facials, professional makeup, brow waxing, tanning, and treatments using technology such as microdermabrasion and LED light therapy. In addition, Skin Space uses and retails Dermalogica, the number-one professional skincare brand and choice of Professional Skin Therapists worldwide.
Dermalogica and Tataje’s belief is that skincare is a health issue, a necessity much like going to the dentist or doctor. Each treatment is customized to the person’s specific skin condition. The treatments range from 20-60 minutes with great results and at very affordable prices.
Tataje’s mission is to re-educate the public about skin health, skincare, and professional skincare. It’s not about beauty or vanity or spending the day and a lot of money at a spa. It’s all about the health of the skin. In fact, more than half of Tataje’s clients are men.
At Skin Space, I received the Dermalogica Skin Treatment, a therapeutic facial that provides an end result of glowing, hydrated, soothed, and healthy skin.
Tataje describes her business location as an “intimate and relaxing treatment room.” No doubt about it — Skin Space gives a cool-down vibe to clients, with soothing music and dim lighting. After the facial, Tataje gave me samples of Dermalogica’s products that she thought would be beneficial to use in between visits and so far, the great results show on my now-clearer skin. “It’s not just my business, it’s my passion!” Tataje says.
As a Dermalogica Expert Skin Therapist and a member of Associated Skin Care Professionals, Tataje is equipped with insight and tools to better treat her clients. After her 30-year career in nursing, she decided to pursue skin therapy, which blossomed from her passion for skincare.
Rated on Yelp! with five stars, who wouldn’t want to get a treatment at Skin Space? “Christine has such a special gift of making you feel pampered and cared for!” rated Yelper, Mary A. “Not to mention her expansive knowledge and passion for skincare products that are personalized just for you!”
Tataje says, “Because healthy skin is beautiful skin … regardless of gender or age.”
Skin Space is located at 5101 Lankershim Blvd. Ste. 206 in North Hollywood. For more information, visit skinspace.net or call (818) 642-0505.
