Healing Arts + Mind Body Soul Connection
Most recent press by Haute Living SF
"Spend 80 minutes in the expert hands of Holistic Esthetician, Megan Nino, and you’ll quickly realize that life changing is an adjective that can be used to illustrate this facial. Nino’s calming voice and healing hands are hypnotic and you’ll quickly find yourself in a dreamlike state. You’ll walk out of the treatment room feeling incredibly relaxed with skin that positively glows." -Katie Sweeney
(This article was written for a facial that was offered at Laurel Skin in Sausalito. I have since moved to my own treatment room, but will still offer this and other amazing facial experiences.)
Hello! I'm Megan Nino. My primary focus and life path is to be a healer. I'm passionate about bringing beauty to my clients in the healthiest forms. My love for organic makeup and skincare started in 09 when I was transitioning into being a green makeup artist while living in Los Angeles. I re-located to San Francisco, CA in 2015 to focus on skincare, health and wellness.
I am currently the in-house Holistic Esthetician at LashoutSF in San Francisco. I offer Sacred Sunday facials that are 80 minutes, and 100 minutes of pure organic bliss. You will experience the sacred connection to your mind, body and soul, where I hold a loving space that allows you to heal and nurture yourself.
Meditation, eating healthy, living consciously and intuitively, loving, and having gratitude are my biggest allies.
I've been in the beauty industry for 8 years. Travel, experience, and people continue to enrich my education of beauty today.
With gratitude, my work has been featured in publications and magazines around the world. I have also written beauty articles for mindbodygreen.com, Blake Lively's website preserve.us, and Coco Eco Magazine.
My take on skincare
Skincare and makeup go hand and hand in my practice. To have a greater understanding of the power of ingredients and the human skin, I became a licensed Esthetician 3 and half years ago.
Makeup can empower, revitalize and emphasize a face. I do it with healthier, effective, and cleaner alternatives. As a creative artist, makeup allows me to expand my imagination through the colors, structures, and a never ending variation of beautiful faces. I am a green makeup artist who focuses on my philosophy to be a beauty who loves nature.
Every Summer as a young girl I would go camping and hiking with my family. We would venture to places in the Alaskan wilderness, New Mexico, along the Colorado River, and Panguitch Lake, UT. I learned to enjoy, appreciate, and respect nature and its creatures at a very young age.
I am also a vegetarian and eco advocate (I love vegan food too). My hope is to see a healthier and happier planet. What a gift this world is for each and everyone of us.
Being green and using products that are organic, cruelty-free, and sustainably sourced, brings me great satisfaction.
