Caring For Your Skin

So many ingredients! So little time – to understand them all, that is!

Let’s focus on a favorite…

Navigating the retail shelves can be tricky. It can be trial and error trying to learn what’s best for you skin, morning/evening routines, and how skincare needs evolve as the seasons change.  Our esthetician have got together and agreed on one powerhouse ingredient that is beneficial for most everyone…. Glycolic acid. 

Here’s why…

Glycolic acid is an exfoliant, effective for removing the outermost layer of dead cells from the complexion- revealing brighter and fresher skin. Skin care products or professional peels that contain glycolic acid are used often to treat blemishes, scarring, skin discoloration, large pores, and signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. Basically, this ingredient is key to beautiful skin.

If you have any questions about skin care, please reach out to us at Waterside Day Spa. Our estheticians are always happy to do consultations and skin analysis to determine the products that will best serve your needs.

Help Your Child Breathe Better

Halotherapy is an warmed and finely crushed dry salt particles in an airtight chamber. Since dry salt is antibacterial and super absorbent it actively kills bacteria and reduces the inflammation in the respiratory system and widens the airways for better breathing.

Studies in Europe and
Russia have confirmed that Halotherapy is safe and helps children effectively manage existing respiratory conditions, support better breathing and build a stronger immune system. Regular Halotherapy, 2-3 times a week, can help prevent the common coughs and colds, runny nose and earaches. In addition, regular Halotherapy also calms the nervous system and helps children to focus better in school as well as sleep better at night.

HALOTHERAPY HELPS CHILDREN TO BREATHE BETTER + FEEL BETTER

While there are many clinical and scientific studies conducted on Halotherapy throughout the world, the FDA has not evaluated the statements made throughout the industry. Halotherapy is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

St. Patrick’s Day in Steamboat

A good massage therapist is like a four leaf clover – lucky to have and hard to find!

Usually, St. Patricks day is celebrated by excessive drinking, that old green piece of clothing you defer to every year and odd Irish food that isn’t bad, but not entirely good, either. This year, the rowdy holiday falls on a weekend, so INDULGE!! Let’s honor the Irish with some ‘green’ pampering!

Try an avocado mask! We sell products from Farmhouse Fresh that are up to 99% natural, paraben and sulfate free, and cruelty free. How much greener does it get than that!? Try one of the facial samplers (20% off until St. Patricks Day) like the Quick Recovery Set which includes an avocado mask called the Guac Star. This mask is packed full of vitamins to comfort and nurture skin. Antioxidants like goji berry, pomegranate, and coffee seed soothe dry skin, and anti-irritants like green tea keep hydration locked in. This revitalizing mask is gentle enough to use every day, and is accompanied by two more organic masks; the Splendid dirt mask which is a pumpkin mask, and the Pudding Apeel Tapioca Glycolic cleanser which has hydrating honey and coconut milk to moisturize while you renew.

 

Rocky Mountain Skin Care

Facials are so much more than an hour of indulgent spa pampering; they also have incredible benefits to the health and wellness of your skin and are essential for short and long term vitality. When taking a look at all of the regular visits you make (dentist, doctor, hair salon, gym), you’ll quickly realize that some time should be focused on your skin–even if it’s just when seasons change. Our skin is most vulnerable at the turn of the seasons as it goes through extreme changes from humid to dry, and cool to warm. Help your skin by tweaking your regime just a bit, and start feeling and seeing the full potential of your skin!

Here are a few reasons we take special care for our skin in the Rocky Mountains… 

Extractions to polish/purify pores

Ok, let’s talk guilty pleasures…  Who doesn’t love extracting blackheads and pimples?!  Most people enjoy it.  Unfortunately, poorly extracted skin (or ‘picking pimples’) is the reason so many people have facial scarring, broken capillaries and ongoing acne flare-ups. The art of facial extractions is a delicate procedure that must be done hygienically on clean skin and with care by a professional. Your skin will breathe better, look healthier and suffer fewer breakouts if you schedule regular time to care for your skin. A trained spa aesthetician is the best person for the job.

Masks and peels support a healthy complexion

With good intentions to maintain a good skin care regimen, many of us do regularly cleanse, moisturize, and (hopefully) apply an SPF- daily!  But, so often, life gets busy and doing deep cleansing and masking treatments slide to the back burner or off the cooker entirely!  During a facial, your skin will be steamed to open pores, extracted and then prepared for a mask or two. Depending on your personalized needs, a custom mask or peel may be used to brighten, calm, hydrate, plump, or decongest the skin.

Anti-aging starts now

Whether you are nine years old or 99, it’s never too soon to care for your skin- the largest organ in the body.  Establishing a steady regimen earlier in life will set you up for success! Because we only have one face, we really need to take care of it. Getting regular facials will promote cell turnover, boost collagen production, nourish and support all season wellness, and maintain a healthy balance for your skin… all of which are great anti-aging remedies. Our skin also thrives with water – so drink as much as you can, it’s important!
