Q: What is holistic skin care?
A: Tammy Fender formulations are carefully crafted to bring skin into balance, and work most effectively when contributing to a healthy lifestyle that encourages harmony between body, mind and spirit. The scope of holistic care concerns not only the physical body, but the person as a whole, and the aim of holistic skin care is to bring vibrancy to the skin, but also to increase overall vitality.
This approach might mean making certain lifestyle changes, for example, eating nourishing foods in their most natural, raw state, exercising regularly, making room for joy and allowing time for plenty of mental and physical rest. Reducing daily lifestyle stresses and thinking positive thoughts also does wonders for promoting beauty that emanates from within. Our choices manifest in the vibrant glow they bring to our skin.

Q: Do all-natural skin care products work?
A: Over many years of practice as a holistic practitioner, Tammy has seen immediate results when clients switch over to using the plant-based formulas in her skin care collection. Yet while the mainstream beauty industry is full of quick fixes, holistic beauty is also about healing on the deepest levels. Our formulas work on the physical plane, enhancing and replenishing the skin over the course of six weeks, but also nurture the being as a whole.
We recognize the importance of what we put onto the skin is just as crucial as what we eat.
Q: I’ve heard amazing things about your products. But before I invest, may I try them first?
A: We would love to introduce you to our collection by sending a small package of samples for you to experience. In order to determine the best formulations for your skin, please answer a few questions via our brief consultation and then call one of our specialists at 561-659-2229.
Q: Which day cream should I choose, and which is best for night?
A: Our holistic formulations are designed to bring the skin into to overall balance, so you can benefit morning or evening by using our creams. That said, Tammy points out that many of her blends correspond so well with the different rhythms of the day. Antioxidant Crème, for example, has an uplifting, invigorating effect that makes it just right for morning time, while Intensive Repair Balm contains soothing Helichrysum, which instills calmness in the evening.
Q: Which formulations should I use to protect my skin in-flight and when I’m traveling?
A: The night before a flight, Tammy recommends treating skin to a thick layer of Restorative Radiance Masque, followed by an application of nourishing Quintessential Serum, ensuring that skin is fully replenished even before you set out. In-flight, she suggests wearing Quintessential Serum under a layer of Spontaneous Recovery Crème, both formulated to protect and nourish, sealing in moisture as you travel. After a flight, awaken skin with a quick in-room facial, gently massaging on Cleansing Milk with a light, circular motion. Follow with Bulgarian Rose Water, and, finally, revive the complexion completely with Quintessential Serum.
Q: I'm experiencing breakouts and acne – what should I do?
A: Mainstream skin care treats acne in such a way that it can actually aggravate the condition with harsh astringent soaps and toners that contain isopropyl alcohol and aggressive chemicals. These products can strip away the skin’s precious natural oils—its protective barrier—and without this defensive layer the complexion could become vulnerable to further outbreaks and acne-causing infection.
Instead, Tammy Fender takes a holistic approach to breakouts. Tammy formulated Clarifying Dermagel specifically with women over the age of 30 in mind, blending in Thyme and Myrrh. We also encourage simple lifestyle shifts to further soothe the skin, working with clients to bring peace into the daily rhythm, while diet, as we know, also has a big effect, especially where processed foods and sugars are concerned.
To address active breakouts, Tammy’s morning and evening protocol is as follows: Cleanse the skin with Purifying Cleansing Gel. Follow with Essential C Tonic. Then apply Clarifying Dermagel. Once active acne has cleared, you can moisturize with Antioxidant Crème. Epi Peel can also be used twice a week as an exfoliant, peel and mask all-in-one.
Q: I'm pregnant. Can I use Tammy Fender products during my pregnancy?
A: Yes! Because of our ingredients, many moms-to-be seek out the Tammy Fender collection during pregnancy. We never use parabens, chemicals, artificial colors or fragrances in our formulas.
However, since Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil contains a high concentration of Lavender, Tammy recommends discontinuing use during the first trimester, though it is a wonderful product to use throughout the rest of pregnancy.
Q: Is there a quick at-home treatment I can use when I need to look my best?
A: Based on her in-spa protocols, Tammy has developed two special at-home mask treatments each offering the exquisite experience of holistic beauty no matter where you are. Opulently rich Restorative Radiance Masque features carefully selected plant remedies and curatives known for their ability to rejuvenate the skin. Purifying Luculent Masque focuses on purifying skin by cleansing away stressors. For a doubly decadent at-home treatment, prime skin before either mask with exfoliating Epi-Peel.
Q: Are your formulas cruelty-free? Are they gluten-free?
A: Happily, all of our formulations are both cruelty-free and free of gluten.
Q: What is the shelf life of a Tammy Fender product?
A: Due to the high content of active ingredients blended into our formulations, we utilize a food-grade preservative system to ensure products remain potent for 9 months after opening. All products are packaged to be used within 8-12 weeks, the period during which they are most efficacious.
Q: When do I apply sunscreen, before or after my moisturizer?
A: Apply sunscreen after your moisturizer as the last step in your daily morning skin care routine.
Q: Can I use Tammy Fender products when healing after a medical procedure?
A: Many clients seek out Tammy Fender products during the healing process, a time when doctors recommend using all-natural formulas on skin. We never use parabens, chemicals, artificial colors or fragrances in our formulas.
Q: How can I best support mature skin?
A: Every formulation we create provides a wealth of ingredients celebrated for their longevity benefits.
Our treatment protocol for mature skin is full of super potent skin-rejuvenating formulations, including Cleansing Milk, to use in the morning and evening, followed by our revitalizing Bulgarian Rose Water and Awakening Eye Gel. Next, massage a few drops of nourishing Quintessential Serum onto the skin and finish with our ultra-restorative Intensive Repair Balm for a smooth, glowing complexion.
Q: I’m coming to Palm Beach and would like to visit the Spa—which treatment should I try?
A: While all our holistic treatments are exceptional, the Spa is known for its Signature Treatment—the Holistic Custom Facial with Reflexology. Rooted in the ancient traditions of holistic medicine, this advanced treatment provides a harmonious balance, awakening inner and outer beauty.
