That blissful sigh of gratitude.....so happy to be stepping back into my happy place and welcoming you once again to settle into a restful slice of stillness with me at Palms ✨ Here are a few things you can expect when you visit under level two ✌️ ~ Hand sanitiser will be provided to use on arrival. ~ I will be wearing appropriate PPE, you are welcome to bring your own and do the same. ~ I have allowed generous gaps between clients to thoroughly sanitise the studio to the highest standards. ~ eftpos is available, however I will be recommending online transfer prior to treatment where possible. ~ if you are needing to fill a product prescription I ask that you email me 24hours prior to your appointment with a list of the products that you require so I can prepare and wrap these for easy collection at the time of your appointment. ~ I kindly ask that you wait for your appointment in your car, I will message you when I am ready for your arrival. ~ Please leave your handbag at home or in the car along with any jewellery that you know you will need to removed for your treatment. ~ Babies are welcome, but must be secured in a capsule. Sadly I can’t allow prams or older children at this time. • I must note that It is imperative that you cancel if you are feeling unwell or are presenting with any symptoms, if you arrive with symptoms you will be asked to reschedule. • Online booking is not yet available as I continue to work my way through the rebooking of clients from the previous few weeks. I will notify you all when this will be reopening 💫 If you would like an appointment or for any other enquires please direct this to my email only at jacs @palmsskinstudio .co.nz appointment requests will be added to my wait list, and for all other enquires please allow me some time to respond. While things will look a little different, you can still expect the same delicious experience, and transformational skin treatments, and level of care you have come to love here at Palms. I would like to thank you all in advance for your patience during this time, and once again say just how excited I am to see you, and care for you and your skin once again 🌙 xx

May the Petals teach us the art of letting go’ ~ To all my lovelies, Palms closed its doors on Monday, I wholeheartedly commend and support the decision to go to level 4 to keep us safe with our loved ones until such time that we can all come back together. ~ During this time know that I am here for you, and your skin ✨ ~ I am fully stocked at home and have a safe contact free collection point. All parcels will be packed wearing gloves and a mask. You will be left gloves to use to collect if you wish, as well as an alcohol wipe for products. ~ I am thinking of you all..... ~ I miss you all already..... ~ I don't know what the coming weeks or months will look like for for us as a nation, for us all as humanity but I do know this - we will come out of this together, stronger, more connected and more compassionate. And when that time comes, Palms and my magic little hands will be ready to embrace you and care for you and your skin once again - you can guarantee it! ~ Thank you for the abundance of messages, of love and support, it means the world 🌙 ~ Please let me know if there is anything I can do during this time to support you. ~ Stay in touch, call me, message me……I am here for you, we all need each other now more than ever. ~ Be Kind, have compassion, stay safe, breathe deep..... ~ With so much love Jacs xx

At Palms my focus has always been to provide my clients with an exceptional experience and a moment of stillness for you to stop and be truly cared for. Caring for you and your skin is what I love doing most, and at the pinnacle of that is ensuring your health and safety at all times, and the safety of our greater community. While we are all navigating our way through this time in our own way, I wanted to reach out and share with you the precautions I am taking to ensure the safety of my clients. While I have always adhered to strict hygiene and cleanliness practices at Palms I have implemented additional precautionary measures as outlined by the World Health Organisation so you continue to feel safe and restored during your time of relaxation here at Palms. - All surfaces will be wiped down with hospital grade disinfectant after every client, this includes door handles, bench tops, product dispensers, eftpos machines, and common surfaces. - All equipment, and bowls will be cleaned with hospital grade disinfectant after all treatments. - As always fresh linen will be used for each client - I will be thoroughly washing my hands before and after every client as I would normally - I will be pausing the use of brushes during facials and applying product manually - I am doubling down on professional cleaning throughout the clinic - There is hand washing facilities for you to use as much and often as you wish - There will also be Hand sanitiser available as of this week for additional reassurance - I will only be operating when feeling in optimal health. - I will have masks and gloves and you are welcome to request I wear one or both during your treatment if you wish. I do ask that if you are feeling unwell please don’t hesitate to call or message to reschedule and I will find you the perfect time when you are feeling at your best. If you require any product this can be ordered and sent out direct to you at home for your convenience and to keep your skin glowing. *I would like to note that no late cancellation fees will be charged during this time, and I will be opening for extended hours and days to accomodate clients to avoid wait times.

So honoured to have Palms selected as @dermaviduals clinic of the month for November ✨ I had the opportunity to share my heartfelt musings on caring for skin, the studio and what it all means to me 💛 Thank you to @dermaviduals for this opportunity and to my beautiful clients - you inspire me everyday...link in my bio xx 📷 by my beautiful + talented @gracegem #corneotherapy #dermaviduals #facialist #skintherapist #petone

The wound is the place that the light enters you - Rumi 🕊 In the last 15 years amongst the countless blessings and love, I have also experienced some of the deepest corners of grief, fear and heartache, through a collection of events that have unraveled me and re shaped me into the person I am today. It is these events that have embedded a determination to offer women in a position of vulnerability, uncertainty, and sadness a pocket of respite, and it is today that I announce the launch of The Kind Collective✨Through this initiative, I will gift a slice of restoration, and stillness to women that truly need it through three organisations that are deeply close to my heart - Woman’s Refuge, Ronald McDonald House & Victims Support. I have goosebumps announcing this initiative that has been a mission from within my soul for quite some time and something I have been reaching for since opening the doors to Palms. The Kind Collective will also give the community an opportunity to donate facials, or contribute to a facial, for a woman being supported by any of the incredible organisations listed so that we can collectively remind them that we are here to hold a space for them to have a little nurturing in their time of need. Lets emit kindness, and radiate love and light for these women 💌

Corneotherapy is part of me - I literally live it and breath it daily 🧘🏼‍♀️ it is so much more than a transient trend, it is a methodology that is scientifically proven to sustain, support and protect healthy glowing and nourished skin. Our skin is such a sophisticated organ - one, that (like every other organ in our body ) can function beautifully when feed the correct nutrients...and that is precisely what @dermaviduals delivers. I have personally used Dermaviduals for a number of years, and now to have the privilege to offer it to my clients, and see the seemingly limitless results and transformations in their skin and most importantly in their confidence means EVERYTHING to me. I am so grateful to work with such an incredible formulation and beautiful clients that are dedicated to the health of their skin. Who else is a @dermaviduals worshiper? 💛 #corneotherapist #corneotherapy #dermaviduals #skinspecialist #facialist #petone #skincare #advancedskintherapist #results Imagery by @gracegem Makeup by @palms_skinstudio Hair @emilynatoli_hair

A golden edit from a shoot & collaboration recently with some of the finest ✨I used @dermaviduals amazing bespoke Deco foundations, powders and blushers - these bases have superior buildable and lasting coverage & are packed full of potent antioxidants and essential fatty acids so simultaneously protect and improve the health, texture and hydration of your skin ✨ so many ingredients found in common cosmetics disrupt & break down your skins delicate microbiome & lipid barrier opening your skin up to a whole host of symptoms from sensitivity and inflammation, to acne and dermatitis, so whether you suffer any skin condition or not, if you care about what your skin and system is absorbing avoiding perfumes, preservatives, mineral oils, emulsifiers and silicones in your makeup and skincare is integral. Deco is a pure formulation containing no nasties, is vegan, cruelty free and mindfully created for you and your skin at the time of purchase at @palms_skinstudio ✨ Hair @emilynatoli_hair Model @helenarickard Photos @gracegem Styling @iamena .co.nz Makeup @palms_skinstudio

| MUSING 🌙| I like to call Palms my third baby, it was created by something inside me - born from my tactile nature, my obsession with skin and passion for science but most of all my love of caring for people. Palms has allowed me to fulfil a dream of caring for clients in a space and energy I have created, with a focus on treating not only topically but also spiritually by providing a nurturing space of stillness. Like most 'newborns' it hasn't come without sleepless nights, tears of exhaustion, tears of joy, many lessons learnt not only about business but also about myself. Today, after what feels like a whirl wind I took some time to step back reflect and really appreciate everything about Palms, the highs, the challenges and the evolution and growth of my little creation, appreciating all its gifts. I want to thank my two beautiful girls Rudy and Juno - you are my inspiration & motivation every day, to my Partner, and my amazing family and friends thank you for your endless support and advice. And most of all to my clients - I am so grateful I was brave enough to open Palms because it has given me the gift of meeting all of you - so many incredible, warm, lovely inspiring humans 🌿 today I am feeling proud of myself, so humbled by the overwhelming support for Palms and really excited for the journey ahead - full of discoveries and lessons, I can't wait to celebrate them with you all ✨ #musings #reflection #skintherapist #petone #corneotherapist #dermaviduals #sansceuticals #palmsskinstudio 📷 by the beautiful @gracegem , Hair @emilynatoli_hair

I have landed home after 3 days of advanced training in Auckland with @dermaviduals ✨ a huge thank you to @simonevescio and @daniellebeyleveld for such an inspiring few days, my mind is blown, brain stretched and knowledge expanded....but not only that, I am reminded that not only is Dermaviduals a phenomenal company with unwavering support and ethics, we are a family ✨so grateful for all the beautiful new friends made! Education fuels my soul, I am forever studying to bring my clients the very best advice and results, if you would like to create not only a little slice of stillness for yourself but also talk about your skin and how we could get it to the best version of itself, call me or book online - your skin is my crush 🌿 #skintherapist #facialist #petone #dermaviduals #bespokeskincare

Oh how I love this silky sweet dust....the dermaviduals enzyme peeling mask mixed with a little Aqua creates a gentle enzymatic paste that gently helps to desquamate any build up on the skin while the Papaya enzymes also calm redness reducing inflammation and increasing cellular turnover leaving your skin smoother, calmer and more plump ✨ the perfect spring pick me up after the winter months, available as part of my bespoke facial treatments 🌿 @dermaviduals #palmsskinstudio #skintherapist #corneotherapy #petonefacialist #holisticfacialist

Skin is my absolute obsession, anyone who has been in to see me already will know that I crush on getting everyones skin to the best version of itself. I dream about clients skin, I wake up in the middle of the night to write notes about something I have thought of that may take a clients skin to the next level. There was no question when I opened I would treat with a product I truly believed in, one I knew would deliver amazing results, and one that was not only ethical, but that contained no harmful ingredients allowing your skin to function in a beautiful state. Dermaviduals is just that, it is what the skin geek in me dreams of - it delivers the best active ingredients with a delivery system that ensures your skin can absorb and utilise those ingredients effectively on a cellular level. I have never believed in any other product so passionately and am so proud to be the exclusive stockist in Petone and Lower Hutt 🌿 Nourished, Happy, Radiant skin is your first and most powerful accessory…..Love and nurture the one you have, it is worth the investment!💫 @dermaviduals . . . #palmsskinstudio #corneotherapy #dermaviduals #facialist #skintherapist #stillness #dermaviduals #skinexpert

Everything within PALMS has a purpose, has a meaning and has been carefully selected 🌱 My beautiful grandmother Grammy June gave me these precious amythest crystals recently so they take pride of place at Palms and serve as a huge inspiration. They were originally a gift from her mother - my great Grandma Day many moons ago 🌙 #palms #bespokefacials #palmsskinstudio #laycation #preciousheirloom
