The Art of Indulging

Regardless of who you are or what your profession is, we all need to indulge a bit sometimes. Yes, even the owner of a business that caters to indulging needs to unwind from things happening behind the scenes and in their personal life - to take a step back and just breathe.

Why You Should Never Sleep In Your Makeup

It’s something we’ve all probably fallen victim to at least once or twice in our lives (especially in our younger “I didn’t know any better!” or “that was a crazy night!” years) - sleeping with makeup on. We get it - sometimes after a rough day at work or a night of too much fun your bed seems like it’s literally calling your name and you just can’t help yourself… but please, please…

The Truth About Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid. Yeah, we know - that “acid” bit sounds kind of scary.

Guest Blogger: Rachel Bimonte - Dealing With Acne at 22

Ever since I was a pre-teen, I have dealt with skin imperfections. When you’re 13 and 14-years-old, it’s only normal. After all, I wasn’t the only person with a few pimples here and there—it seemed like all my classmates had their fair share of the occasional breakout.

The Skinterns Are Back

As you can see from our not-so-subtle title, the Skinterns are back! We know it must feel like forever! When we launched the skintern program last year it was a huge success - so huge that the skinterns we were training got up to speed and were promoted from their skintern positions to full-time skincare experts, which…

The Stunning Benefits of Vitamin C

This time of year there’s always lots of talk about Vitamin D. After a long (exceedingly long this year!) winter, people are psyched to get outdoors and replenish their depleted Vitamin D stores, since it’s a vitamin that requires the sun to be produced naturally in your body. However, as important as stocking up on Vitamin D is in the warm months, one of the most important vitamins…

Simplify Your Skincare

If you spend any time online or reading magazines trying to hash out what the best skincare routine for you will be, you may walk away feeling a bit overwhelmed. From cleansers to oils, toners to astringents, masks and peels it can seem like the perfect skincare routine could easily take up a significant chunk of your daily time - and money. Thankfully though,…

Your Time, Your Choice

After almost 17 years in business we realize that a one-treatment-fits-all approach doesn’t always fit the needs of what you may need on the day of your service. We have designed a new collection of treatments based on the notion that sometimes when you schedule your appointment you may think you and your skin or body needs that service, but on the actual day your needs may have…

Dry or Dehydrated Skin: What's The Difference

Winter weather can be harsh on your skin and we often have clients coming in with questions about dry skin looking for a hydrating fix. The thing is, however, sometimes the issue isn’t dry skin - it’s dehydrated skin. And yes, although it may sound like they’re essentially the same thing, there is a difference.
