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.

Luxe Oxygen Facial

The Luxe Oxygenating Facial is an antioxidant therapy that supports the skin’s metabolism and cell turnover. A beautiful alternative to a peel (safe for pregnant and nursing mothers), this facial has a blend of powerhouse ingredients. Key ingredients include B vitamins that hydrate and promote a clear completion, hydrogen peroxide as a topical oxygenating source effective in purifying the skin, and plant based fungi for detoxification, along with the tried and true lactic, glycolic and salicylic acids.

Above all, what we love the most about this facial:  this is the facial to do a day or two before a special event, night out, or holiday party that will really take your skin care game to the next level! It stimulates oxygenation and circulation within the skin while rejuvenating sluggish, stressed (depleted by toxins, pollutants, allergens, improper diet and solar damage) or acne skin. The facial will draw a rose flush to the skin, without the deep exfoliation often associated with flaking or peeling.

Love your skin – purified, glowing and beaming with radiance!!

 

Breathe Salt, Breathe Better

Practice Respiratory Hygiene

Halotherapy is an exposure to kinetically activated dry salt. Micron sized particles are being inhaled while the large salt particles are spread on the top of the skin. 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.

Medical studies in Europe have proven that the benefits of Halotherapy are accumulative. Many adults and children with asthma, allergies, cystic fibrosis, COPD and other respiratory conditions have found that Halotherapy sessions 2-3 times a week can help mange respiratory problems and reduce the intake of medications.

Sharing All Our Secrets

The are no secrets when it comes to achieving beautiful skin.

Seek out good advice and quality products

Your aesthetician, will assess your skin using a bright magnifying light. By identifying common skin issues, she’ll better be able to advise on what products to use for your skin type. You may not know you have dehydrated or rosacea-prone skin, or that the products you are currently using may be causing irritation. We love Glo Therapeutics! Regular visits to the spa guarantee that you’ll have an understanding and growing knowledge of what’s happening with your skin and how to select the right products for it. Skin is constantly evolving and developing different needs as the seasons change.

Professional strength exfoliation

It’s impossible to avoid environmental damage caused by free-radicals. We’re bombarded daily with unavoidable toxins, like UV rays, car exhausts, and daily dirt that cause our skin to look overtired and congested. Professional strength exfoliation like Microdermabrasion or fruit acid and enzyme peels safely and efficiently remove dead skin cells and promote healthy cell turnover when used regularly. Over time, professional exfoliating methods can also help to diminish acne and fine lines, discoloration, hyper-pigmentation, and other facial scarring.

Leave it to a professional

Aestheticians are trained to look for and deal with complex skin issues that you shouldn’t tackle yourself. For instance, milia are a common skin issue that, if approached incorrectly, can result in scarring or damaged vessels. Tiny white bumps, often found around the eyes, are a build-up of keratin and can be difficult to remove at home. Your well-trained aesthetician will be able to safely pierce and extract it without damaging the skin.  Recurring skin concerns such as these can be kept at bay with regular facials.

Therapeutic Massages to Gift

  • Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy: Also known as Barefoot Massage, the Ashiatsu practitioner uses het body weight and foot compression, while supported by overhead wooden bars.
