Raspberry White Chocolate Facial

Featured

Raspberries and white chocolate come together to delight your senses this Valentine’s Day and the month of February. Raspberries are known to be anti-inflammatory, and while you neither see nor smell the peach, pumpkin, and hibiscus they are in the background softening and exfoliating the skin in a gentle and mild manner. Cocoa is moisturizing to the skin; squalane is a major component of skin lipids and helps to restore compromised or dehydrated skin and prevents trans-epidermal water loss. This facial is great for normal and combination skin and safe for pregnancy. The Valentine’s Day Facial is $45 and is available for a limited time.

Benefits of Wearing Eyelash Extensions

What are the benefits of wearing eyelash extensions?

Appear more youthful, alert, and approachable.
Feel the incredible experience of increased eye contact, connection, and inner confidence.
Free yourself from the wasted time, frustration, and damage associated with eyelash curlers and mascara. No more clumpy lashes, smudges, and eye-irritating flakes.
Eyeliner is optional as the base of the extension creates a line along the lid. Many clients do not feel the need to wear makeup at all.
Accentuate the color and brightness of your eyes. Eyelashes can actually bring out the green or blue in your eyes or brighten the shade of your brown eyes. They can even make your whites brighter and lessen redness.

Can I wear mascara and other eye makeup?

Absolutely. Of course, one of the greatest benefits of eyelash extensions is eliminating the need for mascara on a daily basis. Eye shadows and eyeliners are perfectly fine to use. Oil-based products, particularly waterproof mascara, should be avoided as they may compromise the life of your extensions.

Can I swim, shower, exercise, tan, and/or get in a steam room or sauna?

You may resume normal activities 24 hours after your initial application. Prolonged and excessive exposure to heat and water may lessen the life of your lashes, but will not make them fall off. Some of my regular clients are fitness enthusiasts and do not tend to lose their lashes more quickly than others.

Benefits of Wearing Eyelash Extensions

 

How do I maintain and take care of my eyelash extensions?

1.) Avoid pulling, touching, picking, or rubbing your lashes at all time.
2.) Do not wash or get eyes wet for twenty-four hours after your lash application. After twenty-four hours have passed you will then be able to get your lashes wet.
3.) Sleeping on your side or back is recommended. If you sleep face first you will smash the lash extensions and they will become tangled and worn.
4.) Do not use oil based eye makeup removers or facial cleansers. Use only gel-based cleansers to remove makeup and cleanse your lashes. Only use a water-based mascara to ensure that the product will easily wash off without scrubbing.
5.) Do not use an eyelash curler. Since your eyelash extensions are already curled and long you will not need to curl your extensions. Eyelash curlers are extremely harsh and will break both your natural lashes and your eyelash extensions.
6.) Use warm water and suggested gel based cleansers to clean your lashes and remove eye makeup. Wipe gently around the eyes without scrubbing and pat dry. Do not use Q-tips or cotton, as remnants will be caught in your lashes.
7.) Occasional short visits to the sauna or steam room is fine however, daily or excessive exposure to steam cause the adhesive to loosen the extension from your natural lash. If this happens it may require more frequent visits to have, your lash re-touched.

Spa Facial Massage Benefits

Facial massage is a treatment that helps achieve healthy, younger looking skin by slowing down the aging process. Massage is considered to be one of the oldest forms of healing. Along with numerous skin benefits, facial massage also provides relief for stress, sinus congestion, and migraine headaches.

Having a facial massage on a regular basis can lead to firmer, more radiant skin by minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, moisturizing, and releasing tension. Facial massage can be performed by a massage therapist, a cosmetologist, an esthetician, or done at home. The most comfortable position for most clients is on a massage table or chair, but any flat surface will work.

Always use massage oil made especially for the face. This product is available through many skin care companies. This oil moisturizes the skin and helps facilitate movement over the delicate facial areas.

Start with cleansing the face first. An exfoliant or masque may also be used prior to the massage. The exfoliant is good for increasing the blood flow and sloughing off any dead skin cells. This leaves the face clean and ready for a moisturizing massage.

Spa Facial Massage Benefits

Begin the massage by setting the mood. Make sure the surroundings are quiet, lights are dim, and add relaxing music if desired. Apply massage oil on the fingertips and face. This oil will provide lubrication, or slip, for massage movements. A very gentle, gliding movement, or effleurage, with soft strokes is best for facial massage. The face is sensitive and highly vascular. If the pressure is too deep, facial skin may bruise or swell. Use the index, middle and ring fingers for the lightest pressure. Massage strokes should be an upward motion, which gives the facial muscles lift and counteracts gravity.

A facial massage involves the entire face – including the forehead, nose, eyes, mouth, chin, cheeks, temples, neck, décolletage, ears, and sometimes scalp. Use caution around the eyes because the skin in this region is extremely delicate and thinner than other areas of the face. The oil is removed after completion of the massage, leaving the face cleansed and relaxed.

As a precaution, facial massage should not be performed with the following conditions: open cuts, sores, or boils, skin inflammation, severe acne, psoriasis, or eczema. Skin conditions such as severe acne, psoriasis, or eczema may be further irritated by a facial massage. Contact lens wearers should remove lens prior to starting the massage.

The benefits of facial massage include improvement of facial tone, relaxation of muscles, relief from headaches, stress, and anxiety, and overall relaxation. Always use massage oil made especially for the face. Regular massages of the face can lead to healthy, younger looking skin along with mental and physical relaxation.

As great as giving yourself a facial massage sounds, it doesn’t even compare to getting one in my facial treatments.
