There’s so much we do for others this time of year in the way of giving--
gifts, love, our time, it’s easy to forget about ourselves.
We’re so busy rushing around shopping, wrapping, cooking, decorating,
party-going and playing Santa we don’t slow down and decompress.
Add freezing winter temperatures and lots of gray cloudy days and
you’ve got a recipe for an exhausted you. A you with dull-looking,
lackluster skin that could use a boost.
There’s hope, ladies! You can shed the winter blues and put your
best face forward this season—without breaking the bank.
Here’s a run-down of facial services East Main offers so you can
decide which treatment is best for you (or that special someone
you’d like to give the gift of radiant skin!):
This procedure is popular among the Hollywood set and
there’s a good reason why. Dermaplaning eliminates velous hair
(peach fuzz) that can stand out when makeup is applied and harsh
lightening is used, not to mention high-def cameras. The treatment
itself requires the use of a scalpel, but don’t let that scare you out
of trying it. In the hands of a trained professional like Kathy Moeller
at East Main, you’ll get super smooth skin. How? The scalpel gently
“shaves” or removes cellular debris so dead skin cells go bye-bye.
What’s left behind is a new, brighter complexion.
Dermaplaning is painless, requires zero downtime and is safe for
nursing and breastfeeding women. The results are immediate.
Another bonus: once the dead skin is gone, moisturizers penetrate
the skin better and makeup glides on easier.
And no worries: facial hair grows back no differently than before the treatment.
Like dermaplaning, this procedure is used to improve the appearance
and texture of the outermost skin layer by gently removing it.
Instead of a scalpel, however, a special glycolic acid solution
is applied. But don’t let that scare you either: chemical peels
are considered one of the least invasive ways of improving the
appearance of your skin. Like dermaplaning, there’s no
downtime required. You’ll need to wear sunblock for a
few days after the treatment, but makeup can be applied right away.
You’re a good candidate for a chemical peel if you’d like to reduce
the appearance of sun damage, acne, fine lines and brown spots.
And keep in mind chemical peels aren’t just limited to the face.
They can be used on the hands, neck and décolletage as well.
HYDRATING TREATMENT MASK
Facial masks are great for just about everyone because they’re
like a drink of water for your skin. In the dead of bleak winter,
who doesn’t need that? A mask improves the look of your pores
and restores precious oils lost to your skin. You’ll love the
feeling of being pampered during the procedure, as well as
the tightened, toned feel of your skin afterward.
If you really want to go whole hog (this IS about taking care of
yourself, remember?) book a massage following your facial,
followed by a luxurious Grace Green Beauty Mask.
“The Grace Green Beauty Mask is so nourishing and healing,” says Kathy.
“It delivers super foods to the skin, such as living plant energy,
raw organic honey, a rare, organic oil called tamanu and vitamin E.
The mask stimulates cellular renewal as well as promoting elastin
and collagen for younger, smoother, softer skin that will leave
you with a beautiful glow.”
