Just the Musings of a Spa Girl.....
Well, I was looking at my calendar realizing I roughly have about six weeks before my grand summer vacation: Scandinavian cruise with a side trip to London for two weeks. (Yes, my office will be closed May 30 to June 15). And upon realizing how quickly this trip is coming up, I decided I needed to start a six weeks challenge to get myself in some kind of shape. So I quickly texted my core group of girlfriends to start a 6 week challenge to get healthier.
This got me thinking about other things I needed to do to not only be healthy but also be happy and beautiful. So I am challenging anyone who is taking the time to read this to the Get Glowing Challenge. Beauty, health, and happiness radiates from within and the things I’m going to challenge myself and you to do is a list of habits for body, mind and soul. Some of them are just common sense healthy tips, some of them are positive self talk, some of them are beauty tips. I think of you incorporate as many of these items into your life on a regular basis as you can, you’ll notice not only beautiful radiant skin, but also that inner glow that draws attention and encourages others.
There’s quite a few things on this list so bear with me.
Why do Skin Care and Spa enthusiasts love a good mask? There is a wonderful stigma that once we get a mask on our face we have hit the pinnacle of great skin and ultimate “Me Time” relaxation. I personally LOVE a good mask, whether it be a stiff clay mask, pulling out every toxin and pollutant from my body, to a Serum filled sheet mask achieving the ultimate in Korean Skin Care perfection to a creamy overnight mask that sends us off dreaming of awakening to a bright and hydrated beautiful face in the morning.
Did you know, that according to recent research, the sheet mask market alone is expected to reach over $336 million by 2024. *(source: Transparency Market Research)
But is it just a frivolous and fun girls-night-in thing to do? I mean, the Koreans seem to have gotten it right! 😉 Facial masks offer serious skin benefits With targeted delivery systems and concentrated ingredients. All skin types can thrive with the right mask regimen. A detoxifying mask will clarify and purify the skin, while hydrating options replenish hydration and nourishment to leave skin soft, smooth and glow-y.
This month in the Spa Studio, I want to focus on a specific kind of mask: oxygen mask.
Let’s talk about the power of oxygen. Well first of all, uhm...we need it...it’s vital for life! So, of course, our skin loves it. It encourages clear, youthful-looking skin. Oxygen helps to brighten dull skin and promote the look of clarity. There’s nothing like this effervescent mask, that invigorates and purifies the skin. Upon application, the mask bubbles on the skin, thanks to oxygenating foam burst technology. In the new O2Plus Facial I have added the new Firming Transformation Mask from Image Skincare. This shimmery blue mask is packed with a rare pepper berry extract, it improves the appearance stressed-out skin, leaving it happy, healthy and glowing. Other oxygen facial benefits include the boosting of collagen production, detoxification, increased cell turnover rate, heals acne, moisturizes skin... all with speedy recovery with no painful side effects!
The new O2Plus Facial is truly the perfect spring facial to breathe new life into dull skin! What are you waiting for? It’s time to GET GLOWING!
PS: Image has come out with several new masks...which I will be writing about soon!
