Sarah Blair, Owner/Licensed Aesthetician, Prescott Skin Care
HOW DO YOU DEFINE A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE?
A healthy lifestyle is a balanced lifestyle. One where I have plenty of time to spend with my family, the ability to be active and have the time and energy to put into making healthy meals.
HOW DID YOU COME TO PRACTICE IN YOUR CAREER FIELD?
My career in aesthetics started as a teen when I was on my own skin journey with acne. I remember trying everything to get clear skin and was finally able to accomplish that after aesthetics school. I love working one on one with others and helping people.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRACTICES TO KEEP YOURSELF, YOUR FAMILY HEALTHY?
I try to keep myself and my family healthy by working out and staying active, especially outdoors (wearing sunscreen of course!) I’m a vegetarian and my husband mostly stays away from meat, so our diets are full of fiber and many fresh fruits and vegetables. I also think it’s critical for us to maintain relationships with friends as a de-stresser.
I love working out with free weights, cardio on the elliptical, but most of all hiking. We’re so fortunate to live in an area with many beautiful trails!
I go to the gym about five days a week, alternating between anaerobic exercises like weight training and aerobic with cardio on the elliptical. After dinner each day I go for a long walk in my neighborhood.
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST HEALTH/WELLNESS TIP?
WATER! We live in a desert and I truly believe that most people are walking around dehydrated. Drinking plenty of water seems to help almost any ailment and is essentially free. It is one of the biggest game changers in skin care.
WHAT IS YOUR NEXT GOAL IN YOUR HEALTH, WELLNESS JOURNEY?
To create more of a work-life balance. When you’re a provider in the service industry it gets easy to work tons of hours, skip out on breaks, and even sometimes lunch, so my near future goal is to make the time for myself.
