“Spring Cleaning” Self Care—How to Get Your Glow On This Season
You spring clean your house, so why not your body? It’s a season of rebirth and renewal, of shedding the dullness of winter and embracing the bright warmth of springtime. In other words, we’re moving from long sleeves and layers to sundresses and sandals, and your skin needs to be glowing to look its best. A day at the spa is the ideal way to spring clean yourself (and it’s certainly more fun than deep-cleaning your carpets). We offer a wide range of luxurious services that restore vitality to the skin, just in time for you to soak up the sun this season:
Often, winter skin care routines focus on keeping skin hydrated during cold and dry weather. To get a glow for spring, you want to slough away any dull or flaky skin and reveal your complexion’s true vibrancy. For that, we recommend our Microdermabrasion Facial, which gently yet effectively buffs away the top layer of dead skin cells for a brighter, more youthful complexion. Another great option is our Skin Rejuvenating Peel—this facial treatment is customized for each client with a variety of peel formulas consisting of modified and enhanced Jessner’s solutions, TCA blends, retinol or other boosters, and targeted serums. Our peel treatments exfoliate and smooth the skin on the surface as well as penetrate to the deeper layers of skin to promote a more even complexion. All of our facials are customized to each client and their specific skin needs.
Like the swallows returning to San Juan Capistrano each year, spring is the season when bikinis, sleeveless tops, and shorter skirts make their annual reappearance. That calls for sleek, satin-soft skin, which is best achieved with waxing. Our professional estheticians are experts in treating all areas of the body, for both men and women, and we use azulene wax for the gentlest possible experience. Banish stray hairs from your face, underarms, back, or stomach; opt for a full- or half-leg wax; or go for a bikini or Brazilian wax. The possibilities are endless. Just remember to stop shaving for a few weeks before your appointment so the hair is long enough for the wax to grab onto it. If you’ve never had a body waxing treatment before, we offer some great tips about what to expect and how to prepare for your visit.
A pedicure is a necessity, of course, but sometimes your feet need a little extra TLC. If you spend a lot of time on your feet, your ankles could develop unsightly swelling that a coat of nail polish on your toes can’t hide; you may also experience pain or even plantar fasciitis that can be exacerbated if you try to wear flip flops or sandals without any foot support. A massage that employs trigger point therapy or reflexology techniques can bring sweet relief to your feet and help alleviate any pain or swelling. Like our facial treatments, our massages can be customized to address your particular health and wellness concerns.
