THE BEAUTY OF FACIALS
Let me just start this by saying that I LOVE facials. I would take a facial over a massage any day (and I’m a pretty big fan of massages too) but trust me when I tell you that not all facials are created equal. If you’ve ever let me talk to you about skincare, I will have given you an earful about my good and not-so-good experiences. And since I have your undivided attention right now, I might do just that! I have had a $1500 laser treatment that I felt gave me next to no results, I’ve had a $350 hydrofacial that I have no idea what it did and I’ve had spa facials that felt like a nice cleanse, but not much more than that. On the other hand, I’ve had an IPL laser treatment that had mind-blowing results, microneedling which is quite possibly my new addiction and a series of personalized spa facials that totally changed my skin. I’m focusing on the last of these today but if you have any questions about the others, just let me know. As you may or may not know, I currently spend my Saturdays working at Emerald Day Spa in Victoria. It is owned by a very good friend of mine, Tanya, and so I’ve been a client there for many years before ever working for her. She was developing a new facial program at her spa to focus on targeting specific skin concerns and asked if I would be a guinea pig. Of course I jumped at the opportunity because who am I to turn down a facial? I obviously couldn’t resist. And since I loved it so much, I thought I would tell you all about it!
