I don’t want to face the music either, but summer is quickly slipping away. It might just be the best season (though my very unscientific poll shows fall as the locals’ favorite), but it can be brutal on your skin–hot summer sun, SPF, bronzers, salt or chlorinated water, etc. Just like a need for a good mani/pedi, it’s time to give your skin some love too with a good facial. The G.M. Collins Sea C Spa Facial at ArchBeauty ($125), noted for its antioxidant and rejuvenating properties is a powerful treatment that acts as a “damage eraser,” protects the skin from free radicals to inhibit premature skin aging and increase collagen synthesis to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Looking for a mild cleansing facial? The G.M. Collin Enzyme Facial ($80) also at ArchBeauty eliminates dead skin cells that clog pores, inhibit optimal product absorption and skin respiration, stimulate cell renewal and assist in controlling acne breakouts. (Yes, both of these feature G.M. Collin products–learn more about the line from a post I did HERE. In a nutshell, the line was founded in France, is derived from natural plant and marine extracts and are technologically developed to achieve visible results. They do not test on animals.)
The Age Erase Glycolactic facial at The Apothecary ($85) illuminates and re-energizes the skin, can even out skin tone, and help fade pigmentation. The use of the potent yet gentle bio active mask uses four fruit acids that will renew the complexion, reduce fine lines, improve skin tone, firmness and radiance.
