Has the cool, crispy fall weather got your skin feeling dry and tight? With the change of seasons from summer to winter now is the ideal time to freshen up your skin. With summer behind us and winter lurking around the corner, your skin is asking for an extra dose of hydration.
So what exactly is a Hydration facial?
When you enter the treatment room, one of our highly trained estheticians will have a thorough consultation to better understand your skincare needs and to assess the best ‘plan of action’ for your facial service. This will consist of a pre-cleanse to remove makeup, built up debris and oils on the skin, followed by a cleanser best suited for you. After cleansing we will look at your skin more closely under a magnifying light to determine how dry (lack of oil) and/or dehydrated (lack of water) your skin is. From there, you’ll have either a physical exfoliation (something that feels grainy) or a chemical exfoliation (most likely an enzyme or AHA based product). After sloughing off all that old dead skin you’ll be treated to a facial massage to increase circulation and overall relaxation before receiving a customized hydrating mask. Your service will end with a combination of serums, eye creams, lip balm, and moisturizer specially chosen for you.
This is the perfect way to jump start your winter skincare routine. Just as we put away our flip flops and dust off our snow boots, this is the time to put away those oil-free moisturizers and stock up on creamy cleansers and hydrating serums (hyaluronic will be your new best friend, trust us).
Can’t wait to see you in the treatment room!
