After months of working hard to purchase and renovate our new building, I really needed to spend some time taking care of me. So I treated myself to a spa day including a Facial, some long overdue waxing and a pedicure. I’ve been in the Spa and Beauty industry for aver 35 years and have been waxing my legs and underarms since I was 18. It takes a lot to surprise me but I learned something new from one of our Estheticians at this visit.
Those of us in our 50’s are constantly finding out new and uncomfortable things about ourselves aren’t we? Hair grows in places it shouldn’t, and stops growing in places it should. Our skin is constantly changing, one minute oily and breaking out, the next it’s dry, dehydrated and has unusual bumps that weren’t there yesterday. My facial reminded me that when you neglect your skin care and don’t have regular facials to exfoliate and nourish your skin, blackheads and milia can build up and it can take more than one facial to undo the damage. So I’ll be doing a series of Anti-aging Facials to fix that issue!
But the real surprise came during my underarm wax. I’m a blonde and don’t have much hair so I was surprised when Britany told me I had an ingrown hair. She dug that out as I squirmed and then told me there were lots of pustules (whiteheads) and that I needed to exfoliate my underarms!! That was a new one for me, let me tell you. Apparently, those of you who shave are constantly exfoliating and that usually takes care of the problem. However, if you’re not shaving, if you wax or if you’re just getting older like me, and are having bumps and ingrown hairs, exfoliating regularly can help take care of the problem for you! Britany recommended I use our Sugar Scrub ($18) on my body (underarms included) and the Dermesse Exfoliator, along with my series of Facials, should take care of the blackheads and dehydration on my skin.
This was a great reminder for me that what we do at our Spa can help busy folks like me to look and feel their best with just a small time investment. Britany helped me to fix an issue I didn’t even know I had by giving me the information and recommending the right products and treatments to correct the issues. I booked my next appointment right then so I won’t neglect myself again! If you have been neglecting your skin, your body, or your mental health this summer, please do your self a favor and book an appointment now to relax, recharge and restore your skin!
Hope to see you soon!
