Home or Spa

Treat yourself to a little piece of heaven on earth!

Wipe your stress away with a facial ... a relaxing treat that has substantial benefits to making you feel good as well as look good.

This indulgence is not only healthy for your skin but when combining this with a visit to a spa the environment is one of stress reduction. The serene music and relaxing smells of aromatherapy are meant to relax you.

You may get a treatment at a spa anywhere from an average of $50.00 to $100.00 or if you prefer you can purchase skin treatments that you can perform at home at your own convenience.

The benefits are both physical and emotional. The esthetician will assess your skin and prescribe a treatment that is specific to your needs. This knowledge you just can’t get at a drug store as you second guess what the best products may be and what your skin may be lacking. An esthetician will apply a treatment that will help to keep your skin hydrated and aid in that preventative treatment that keeps those aging wrinkles in check and out of site.

When you feel good you look good.
It's just that simple!!

When preparing for an at home treatment the more knowledge you can accumulate about your particular skin type and the more you learn about what each phase of a facial targets the more successful you will become at acquiring positive results.

Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells along the skin's outermost surface. Exfoliation is involved in the process of this service and during body treatments at spas. It is a process recommended to maintain healthy skin at least twice a week, with a daily regimen recommended during the winter months.

Moisturizers are complex mixtures for skin treatments containing chemical agents specially designed to make the external layers of the skin(epidermis) softer and more pliable, by increasing its hydration (water content).

The inexpensive brands of moisturizers may be less pure in their active ingredients leading to irritation of the skin along with a less potent formula leading to fewer positive effects. You will note with the lower end brands that they do contain highly regarded ingredients but in lower concentrations which yield low benefits to the skin.

When preparing for a facial, look for smaller packaging, subtle floral scents, essential oil mixtures from flowers and plants plus high concentrations of vitamins and acids. The usual price ranges are between $30.00 to $70.00

I love to be spoiled by having facials and they make you feel so good. A facial mask is a creamy mask applied to the face for hygiene effects to clean or smooth the face. It often contains minerals, vitamins and fruit extracts, such as cactus and cucumber, to give the nutrition to the skin of the face.

There are different kinds of masks for different purposes, some are deep cleansing for cleaning the pores. The effect can be revitalizing, rejuvenating and refreshing.

Facial masks are most commonly used by women but also used by men.

Some masks are washed off with tepid water, others are peeled off by hand. Duration for wearing a mask depends on type of mask, but can be 3 minutes to 30 minutes, and sometimes including the whole night.

A cleanser is a facial care product that is used to remove make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt and other types of pollutants from the skin of the face. This helps to unclog pores and prevent skin conditions such as acne.

Many people use a cleanser one or more times a day as part of their skin care regimen together with a toner and moisturizer.

Using a cleanser to remove dirt is considered to be a better alternative to bar soap or another form of skin cleanser not specifically formulated for the face for the following reasons:

  • Bar soap has a high pH (in the area of 9 to 10), and skin's natural pH is 5.5. This means that soap can change the balance present in the skin to favor the overgrowth of some types of bacteria, exacerbating acne.
  • Bar cleansers in general, soap or not, have thickeners that allow them to assume a bar shape and these can clog pores, leading (once again) to acne.
  • Using bar soap on the face can remove natural oils from the skin that form a barrier against water loss.

    It is important to remember to always wash your face in luke warm water, use a milky cleanser and a hydrating toner. Try not to leave the skin un-moisturized for too long after cleansing. It is imperative not to de-hydrate the skin. Cleanse, tone and moisturize twice a day, once at night and once in the morning. The number 1 treatment would be a moisturizer made with 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils.

    Nothing says "tired and weary" faster than dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines around your eyes. It's generally where you see the first signs of aging because the skin in this area is extremely thin and doesn't contain sebaceous glands.

    Needless to say, with a facial the eye area needs special care. So go forth get a facial and enjoy!!
