Seeing all the facial options out there can be over-whelming. Do they all do the same thing? Will having one make a difference, or do I need a series of facials to see benefits? Will having a deep cleansing facial make me break-out? We get these questions all the time and completely understand where you’re coming from. The best way to know what is best for you and your skin is to have an open conversation with your aesthetician wherein they can analyze your skin in-person and speak with you about your goals, lifestyle, and budget. However, it’s always nice to do some research yourself and generate some knowledge and questions before heading in. Check out this list of our favorite facials to find the one that is right for you! We have organized them by skin concern to take the guess work out of the equation. Each concern is accompanied by two options for different budgets and specific needs. (We also give you some insider information about each option!) 

What is your main skincare concern? 

Acne/Blemishes, Large Pores, or Oily Skin 

Acne Treatment Facial $95 

Oxygeneo 3 in 1 Super Facial (with extraction and mask) $150

Anti-Aging Treatment Facial $120+

Microdermabrasion $80 

Oxygeneo 3 in 1 Super Facial $130 

Jane Iredale: LipDrink $24 

Not only does this lip balm hydrate your lips, but it protects against premature aging caused by the sun. The sun’s UVA rays can make lips thinner and less plump, but the SPF in this formula helps to combat those effects. This balm comes in a variety of colors from clear to dark plum and always has a fresh lemon scent.  

I love my muff: Soft $18 

Whether you’re waxing, shaving or neither, this lotion helps to PH balance your intimate areas and leaves behind a botanical scent, so you feel fresh all day. If you are shaving or waxing, this product helps to sooth irritated skin, reduce inflammation and combat ingrown hairs.  

Advanced Nutrition Programme: Skin Accumax $160 

This award-winning supplement is great for all skin types, but especially those with an uneven complexion. Used primarily to treat acne and blemishes, this supplement evens out the texture and tone of your skin across your whole body. For this reason, it is also a great option for treating back blemishes.  

Intense Moisture Serum $90

This moisturizing serum can be used day or night, in any season, and on any skin type. We love the lightweight texture which looks great even under makeup.  

 

One of the number one questions we get asked is how to get rid of stretch marks. Unfortunately, the truth is that for most stretch marks there is not yet technology on the market that erases them completely. Occasionally with very new marks we can make them completely disappear, but this is often not the case. Despite this, there are several ways to fade stretch marks or make them less visible. Whether you have stretch marks on your back, legs, stomach, breasts or arms, here are our favorite methods for treating them: 

1.Prevention 

Stretch marks are largely genetic, so they are not completely preventable. Although you can defiantly keep them to a minimum with a few hacks. Using topical creams or oils helps to maintain the skin’s hydration level, making it more pliant to change. You may also want to consider collagen vitamins and/or omegas if you know you’ll be gaining weight or pregnant soon. Teenagers can benefit a lot from these vitamins and daily moisturizer, as growth spurts cause the majority of stretch marks.  

2. Skin MicroNeedling 

With this method, your aesthetician essentially creates microchannels in the area you have stretch marks, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response and sends collagen to the area. We then apply a specially designed serum, which can be absorbed optimally by the microchannels, further benefiting the skin. This method offers bonuses such as reducing skin discoloration, scarring, and signs of aging, making it a favorite for stretch marks on the upper arms or areas with additional scarring.  

3. Venus Legacy (Radio Frequency + Magnetic Pulse) 

This specialized machine is a favorite for moms, or anyone who want to reduce stretch marks while also tightening the skin. If you struggle with stretch marks on your thighs or bum, you may prefer this method because of its wonderful ability to reduce cellulite!  

4. Sunless Tanning 

If you were hoping for a quick fix for a vacation or special day, sunless tanning is a great option that makes stretch marks look temporarily less visible. Not only is sunless tanning a safer option than traditional tanning, but when you tan in the sun the stretch marks don’t change color, making them even more noticeable! However, sunless tanners are designed to stain the stretch marks, making them blend much more favorably.
