Best skin advice, spa or salon treatment and fave product for a 20 something:
Hydrate and stay out of the sun or use an excellent SPF. Our “Vitamin Oxygen” facial would be awesome as well as “Colorscience Sunforgetable SPF 50”
Best skin advice, spa or salon treatment and fave product for a 30 (the new 20):
Start now – be happy later, skin protection is the name of the game. Our “Red Light” therapy combats sun damage, stimulates collagen growth – resulting in firming and tightening, and balances pigmentation. Product suggestion would be – HydroPeptide Serum and eye cream and the SPF w/self adapting microbeads…..sorry, that’s 3 faves!! All three products help to maintain the skins tone and texture 🙂
Best skin advice, spa or salon treatment and fave product for a 40 something (I know we stopped counting a decade ago):
Limit sun exposure, ensure a healthy diet of fresh fruits and veggies for added antioxidants. The best treatment for this age category is our “Results” Hydra Facial. This is a non-surgical skin resurfacing while vortex infusing antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid to plump the skin and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. Our fave recommendation would be products from “Kate Somerville” line: Hydra Kate Serum, Deep Tissue repair and Line Release, under eye repair.
Best skin advice, spa or salon treatment and fave product for a 50 and up:
While continuing to exercise – don’t sweat the small stuff. At this age diet and exercise are key!! Yoga is fantastic for maintaining flexibility, balance, spinal mobility, hormone balance…..Buddah brain 🙂 It is all good. Our recommended treatment would be the “Age Stops Here” Hydra Facial. This amazing, all consuming facial offers the best in technology with Hydra Facial, Oxygen Therapy, Red light Therapy, and Microcurrent. Best product is from ISUN, wildcrafted and organic “phyto infusion” serum for deep hydration and anti-aging facials oils: Ultra Restore, Ultra Saphire – beautiful!
Please name your most popular retail item and what it does.
“Nu-Face” facial device is a fantastic skincare unit designed for in-home use and is based on microcurrent technology. With consistent use, this device lifts and strengthens facial musculature to maintain a toned, tightened, youthful appearance.
