NAVASHALOM STUDIO VALUES
Skin Care from the Inside-Out
Sure, you've heard the old adage, "You are what you eat..." But did you realize that it couldn't ring more true than it does when it comes to taking care of your body's largest organ - your skin? At some point in time, whether immediately or in the future, the foods and drinks you consume will either wreak havoc on your skin, or cause it to flourish.
One of the core beliefs at NAVASHALOM SKIN STUDIO is that skin care starts in your gut. What you put in, you get out, and when you put in healthy, substinent nutrition, you reap the benefits of healthy and naturally glowing skin.
In keeping with this belief, Studio Members begin their healthy skin journey by participating in the Studio Beauty Detox Program. A program designed to be a smooth transition from your previously glow-hampering nutritional lifestyle, to one that will accelerate your results. One of the keys to a successful skin regimen, is removing from your body what has not served you by means of detoxification.
A Commitment to Home Care
Yes, it's true that professional treatments do amazing things for your skin! However, in-studio treatments are only 20% of the equation that produces healthy skin. The remaining 80% depends upon your at-home supplementation.
Similar to achieving a goal weight (80% of what you eat, and 20% of time spent working out), being consistent with home care is essential to meeting and exceeding your skin goals. At NAVASHALOM SKIN STUDIO, your Skin Therapist prescribes your home care regimen, specifically designed to address and progressively correct your unique skin concerns.
Access to Award-Winning Products
NAVASHALOM SKIN STUDIO prides itself in providing members with award-winning professional products. These preferred brands - Skin Script Rx, PCA SKIN, and IMAGE Skincare - have been tested and proven to yield lasting results for various skin types and conditions, without disrupting the integrity of the skin.
Awards hale from various authorities within the skin care industry, such as ASCP Skin Deep, and Dermascope Magazine.
NAVASHALOM STUDIO EXPERIENCE
Progressive Corrective Care - A Note from Cherie
As someone who is passionate about skin care and has had to develop a plan to overcome her own skin woes, I understand that no two skin types or conditions are alike, and that carefully curated and maintained beauty practices will help you achieve all of your most sought after glowing-skin goals. Just as much, I am a firm believer that the resolution of undesired skin conditions requires progressive and consistent treatment in order to effect lasting changes.
Based on my understanding and beliefs, I have made client education, and commitment to progressive corrective care key factors in skin transformation at the Studio.
So, what can you expect as a member at NAVASHALOM SKIN STUDIO?
Let’s take a look...
After a detailed consultation and analysis at your initial visit, you will be educated about your skin’s current unique condition, and what it will need to bring it to a balanced state. Personal goals will be mapped out in stages so we can keep track of our baseline and achievements. The following corrective care will include a combination of various treatments, modalities, and a curated home care regimen that will work to progressively improve your skin’s state.
During the treatment process, we will periodically review your baseline and goals to ensure that we are addressing each concern and are continually advancing through the process. Once we’ve achieved all of your goals, we will be able to determine appropriate maintenance measures to keep your skin glowing.
Well-nourished, healthy skin is possible with the correct education, implementation of corrective measures, and dedication to the process. An important thing to remember though, is that as long as it took to create adverse conditions for your skin, it will take at least as long to make the necessary corrections that will allow your skin to flourish.
So, if you’re ready to take a step in the right direction, I’m ready to coach you through! Let’s work together, develop a plan, and watch you shine!
I look forward to serving you soon!

Licensed Esthetician and Owner
Certified PCA Skin Professional
Certified Multicultural Skin Care Therapist
Cherie Elder is an up-and-coming skin care expert in the Washington Metropolitan area; she currently holds licenses to practice esthetics in both D.C. and Maryland. Since her graduation from the renowned Aveda Institute, she has continued expanding her education and has earned certifications in a variety of advanced skin care treatments. Specifically realizing the lack of knowledge of how to treat and care for skin of color, she obtained a certification in Multicultural Skin Treatments under celebrity esthetician and Obama White House Esthetician, JoElle Lee. Cherie continues to consistently take continuing education courses to ensure her clients receive the most cutting-edge treatments and most revolutionary skin care education.
As someone with dry skin and a history of mild acne with post-inflammatory discoloration, Cherie understands that no two combinations of skin type and condition(s) are the same, and that each should be addressed individually. Through the case-by-case customization of protocols, she infuses a variety of modalities, therapies, and lifestyle recommendations into her treatment plans, and works progressively with each client to achieve their greatest skin health.
Beyond her skin care expertise, Cherie believes that her ability to connect with and understand the underlying needs of her clients makes her one of their greatest assets and provides a solid foundation for long-lasting provider/client relationships. Additionally, as Cherie is passionate about the ability and success of future estheticians, she has expanded her reach within the esthetic community by becoming an educator within the acclaimed Paul Mitchell System.
