5 Benefits of Boosting Our Skin’s Immunity with Colloidal Gold

Feeding the skin with proper nutrients is essential for healthy skin.

In professional skincare, we use a lot of different ingredients to boost the skin`s immunity, but one of the ancient ingredients that we don’t hear much about, and has recently become a rising trend in the skincare industry because of its amazing properties, is colloidal gold.

The use of gold in skin care can be traced back to ancient Egypt where people believed gold had medicinal properties, and that it is the same substance which the skin of the gods was made of.

They aren’t wrong though. On their belief that gold has medicinal properties, that is.

Gold does have multiple benefits (did you know that gold compounds have anti-tumor properties*?), but for this blog post, we’re going to focus on the 5 ways colloidal gold boost our skin’s immunity.

So what exactly is colloidal gold and what are the benefits of boosting our skin’s immunity with it?

Colloidal gold is a suspension of gold particles that have been nanosized so that it stays dispersed evenly in a solution or fluid (usually water) and covers a large surface area of the skin. It is also often added to skincare products due to its barrier-protecting powers.

Keep reading to find out the 5 benefits of boosting the skin’s immunity with colloidal gold:

Antioxidant & Anti-Inflammatory

Colloidal gold acts as a shield against free radicals (which have been known to trigger skin conditions such as acne and eczema), strengthens the skin’s defense against pollution and helps calm skin inflammation. It also helps enhance the penetration of other antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as retinol and vitamin C into the layers of the skin.

Treats Sun-Damaged Skin

Unprotected sun exposure is unhealthy for the skin because aside from getting sunburn, the harsh UV rays can also cause premature skin aging (think dark spots and wrinkles). However, it is understandable that we may sometimes forget to apply an adequate amount of sunscreen before going out and are already dealing with the consequences,
therefore choosing skincare products infused with colloidal gold might be a wise choice considering that colloidal gold not only prevents sun damage, it also treats sun- damaged skin through its ability to restore and repair damaged cells.


Colloidal gold is also known to have brightening effects on the skin (due to its reflective properties) and the ability to boost blood circulation. And because it improves the blood circulation, this causes healthy detoxification which makes the skin healthier and more vibrant.

Stimulates Skin Cells

It also stimulates skin cells through the help of the ions present in gold causing improved blood circulation and increase in skin cell metabolism and waste secretion resulting in healthy skin.

Of course, the ability of colloidal gold to restore skin cells also aids in reducing signs of aging such as sagging skin and loss of elasticity.

Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles

When it comes to the topic of aging, one of the most common concerns of women are the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, especially on their face.

One of the primary causes of wrinkles and fine lines is exposure to UV radiation which can speed up the aging process.

And because of its antioxidant properties and capability to reduce signs of skin aging, colloidal gold is the ideal ingredient to look out for when choosing skincare that will address these problems.

With colloidal gold’s antioxidant properties, the ability to increase skin’s elasticity, boost collagen production, and reduce collagen depletion, it is no wonder that the trend gold in skincare shows no signs of going away anytime soon.

Spalina is always looking to incorporate the most effective and high-performing ingredients into its products which is why the newest products, Complex Vitamin C and Peptide Firming Glow, are infused with colloidal gold to enhance the effects of the other ingredients.

Complex Vitamin C is your ultimate free radical scavenger with a potent antioxidant that brightens the skin as well as prevents and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. It is also supercharged with glutathione and colloidal gold and includes peptides and marine fermentation which provides the skin with a natural glow.

Peptide Firming Glow is an anti-aging peptide serum and is meant to be used for the face and neck. It has high-performing peptides for that ULTIMATE lifting, firming, and glowing effect.

2020 Top trending anti aging treatments

The beauty industry is ever-evolving. Every day, new trends and treatments make their debut in an effort to help men and women find the fountain of youth. These treatments focus on a variety of common aging concerns including fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, large pores, dark circles and dryness. So, here are the top 6 anti-aging treatments that your clients are looking for.

Hydra Infusion

The Hydrinfusion can restore the skin and leave your clients with a refreshed, youthful look in no time. During a treatment, hydrainfusion delivery system will extract dirt and dead skin cells to gently exfoliate the skin. After the exfoliation process, a customized combination of skin  serums will give your  face an immediate glow. Great in combination with customized facial.


Dermaplaning works to eliminate “peach fuzz” and create a fresh, clean complexion. It removes old, dead skin cells, fine facial hair and light acne scars. To perform the treatment, your esthetician will gently feather a special stainless steel scalpel across your skin.  Dermaplaning is also a great option for pregnant or breastfeeding clients that are limited on certain chemical applications. Dermaplaining can be paired with different modalities depending on your skin needs and wants.


Microneedling can do wonders for the skin’s tone and texture while reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars and more. The treatment stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, leaving your clients with fresher, younger-looking skin. A popular combination in 2020 is pairing microneedling with Coolifting. With this combination you can expedite the healing and rejuvenation process.

Enzyme exfoliating peels.

Enzyme exfoliating peels remove the top layer of skin revealing fresher, brighter skin. They can smooth away fine lines and wrinkles and reduce sun damage, hyperpigmentation, melasma and acne scars. For skin that is conditioned there is usually no downtime but depending on the intensity of the enzyme exfoliating peel,  mild and medium peels typically offer little to no downtime. I perform deep peels requiring downtime only on special occasions. Those who opt for those treatments are always aware of the time needed for healing.


This too good to be true innovation involves using low grade electrical current to train your facial muscles to appear more lifted, tightened, and firm. In fact, its name is the “non invasive facelift.”

Not it will only contour and lift your facial muscle, but this treatment will deeply hydrate your skin in addition to heal your skin by supplying the ATP energy to the cells that are responsible for rejuvenation. For the best results you should consider doing a series of 6 treatments, and 3 of those should incorporate the Coolifting. The combo of those two will give you results that you have never imagined you could have.

This are amazing results from one customized facial incorporating different modalities for the best results.


This revolutionary treatment has changed many of my clients skins. It is a super simple, quick 4 minute hi-tech process of infusing hyaluronic acid via CO2 into your skin, filling up those fine lines and wrinkles. CO2 stimulated the collagen fibers from the inside for the ultimate tightening and lifting effect. Treatment is only 4 minutes long and it is always done in combination with the facial or micro needling for its even more intensified results.

Another happy client with a customized facial.

If you are looking for a custom corrective holistic treatments (that will target your specific needs and wants) or products that will make a true change on your skin, then you came to the right place. Spalina Inc and Spela Skin care is the place where true skin transformation happen.

Mascne and skin irritation from the new normal?

While many medical professionals already wear protective masks every day, wearing a face mask out in public has suddenly become a part of everyday life for all of us. I’ve been getting a lot of questions about some of the changes people are seeing in their skin as a result of wearing masks. The most common complaints I’m hearing about are increased breakouts around the areas of mask as well as sensitivity and irritation of the skin.

Face masks may be necessary for now, but blemishes and irritated skin aren’t.

Wearing a mask can lead to a type of acne called acne mechanica. The only difference between acne mechanica and regular acne is the cause; while regular breakouts tend to be hormonally-driven, acne mechanica is caused by friction (a physical disruption to the skin).

When something is constantly rubbing up against your skin, the combination of friction, heat, and pressure can be a trigger for breakouts. In addition to friction, a mask that covers your mouth can cause breakouts because of the moist environment it creates. Your breath traps moisture and heat, which stimulates oil flow. This combo of oil, heat, and moisture is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. 

Another reason protective face masks can cause breakouts is the pressure they exert on your pores.

You may notice that, after removing a mask, you have indents in your skin from where it was pressing up against your face. These indents could actually be changing the shape of your pores, causing a buildup of oil. Wearing a protective face mask creates a perfect environment for breakouts to thrive.

While there are different types of protective masks available, this one (surgical) seems to be the most common.

The friction responsible for acne mechanica is also the culprit behind most irritation caused by protective face masks. In fact, red, bumpy, rashy skin is a common precursor to acne mechanica.

All of these are also signs of inflammation, which can wake up your skin’s pigment cells and cause lingering pigmentation long after the erythema (redness) has subsided. To avoid this, it’s best to address irritation right away. 

So how can you keep your protective face mask from clogging your pores and causing irritation?

The goal should be to create a healthy environment in your skin where bacteria won’t thrive. This comes down to reducing oil production and using products with non-drying, antimicrobial properties. 

Properly cleansing your face before bed is always important. When you’ve spent all day wearing a face covering that traps heat, sweat, oil, and bacteria, it’s especially necessary. It’s tough to properly clean your face throughout the day, so it’s important to use your nighttime routine as an opportunity to really reset your skin.

If you’re worried about acne as a result of wearing a face mask, the most important thing you can do is be diligent about your skincare routine. Trust me, it’s a lot easier to stay on top of the problem than it is to try to fix it once things have gotten out of hand. 

Implement a good night routine!

Start by cleansing your skin with a Biotic Mangosteen cleanser which contains ingredients like salicylic acid that is antimicrobial. After cleansing, I recommend using an enzyme mask (Cranglow Milkzyme) twice a week and daily use of Glylac exfoliating pads (you can choose to use it all over, or just in the area of the mask).

Salicylic acid is unique in that it has the ability to cut through oil and really get into your pore lining. Remember that face masks trap oil in your pores by exerting pressure on them and creating indentations in the skin (which can change the shape of pores). Lactic acid will be able to really get into your pores to clear out this build-up of oil so it doesn’t turn into a full-on breakout without causing any irritation.

I also suggest using the Epidermal repair serum every night. As you all probably know, that is my number one selling products because of its efficacy.

Epidermal repair serum has the ability to completely restore your skin complexion, while its calming and anti-inflammatory properties will heal your skin and prevent you from getting new breakouts. This serum is so amazing that you will see the difference on your skin within just days of using it.

Protection from the sun is super important, SPF rain or shine, but if you go to the beach don’t forget your wide beam hat.

Don’t forget about SPF.

Even if you work indoors, you should be wearing sunscreen 365 days a year to protect your skin from UV damage. Unfortunately, sunscreens are notorious for causing problems when it comes to acne and clogged pores. If you’re already struggling to keep your skin clear while wearing a protective face mask, you may want to opt for a mineral sunscreen powder instead of a traditional lotion- or cream-based sunscreen.

Mineral powders are easy to touch up during the day, especially if you’re wiping the skin down with an antibacterial toner. They also sit on top of the skin instead of settling into pores, which is why they’re far less likely to cause blemishes. An added bonus? Powders will absorb excess oil sitting on the skin.

Wear a clean mask every day.

If you’re wearing a bandana, scarf, or reusable cloth mask when you go out, be sure to wash it regularly. Not only is this the best practice for good hygiene, but it will also prevent oil and dirt from being reintroduced onto the skin.

When the skin is irritated and sensitive, the last thing you want to do is aggravate it even more. Be cautious when it comes to using exfoliating acids. The purpose of these is to slough dead cells off the surface of your skin, which a face mask is already doing by manually rubbing back and forth. Adding in even more exfoliation could be too much. Listen to your skin and pull back if it seems like too much.

Don’t over exfoliate.

I also recommend staying away from face scrubs and sonic cleansing brushes when your skin is irritated. Physical exfoliation is already harder on the skin than chemical exfoliation, and in this case, adding even more friction into the equation by scrubbing your face certainly won’t do you any favors.

To focus on rebuilding and protecting your skin’s protective moisture barrier, use a healing moisturizer with reparative ingredients. Manuka Infused Lipid creme and  Stem Cell Infusion serum can help you rebuild and heal the skin.

Avoid any moisturizers with high percentages of essential oils or any kind of synthetic fragrance. Both of these are notorious for irritating the skin and can break your moisture barrier down over time. 

Whether you wear a mask on the job or just started wearing one in public to help do your part, I hope you find these tips helpful! Stay safe and always love your skin.

To introduce our new Spalina Antioxidant Line Diffusing Serum, we wanted to talk about the uses and background of Vitamin A to better understand why this Retinaldehyde-based serum is uniquely effective for all skin types. This serum contains the highest Retinoid bio-activity value to the skin without a prescription, thanks to patent protected Retinaldehyde. Unlike other Vitamin A based skin care, Retinaldehyde gives no irritation nor downtime. It is a brightening antioxidant that reduces the appearance of wrinkles for all skin types. Vitamin A Retinol is one of the most effective and sought-after skin care ingredients, but due to its many forms, sometimes finding a product can be confusing. So, let’s discuss the basics of Retinoids and dig into why the Diffusing Serum is for you. What is Vitamin A? Essentially, vitamin A is a group of fat-soluble organic compounds that is necessary for skin renewal. When used topically, vitamin A is anti-inflammatory and improves general skin function. This has stellar results such as brightening your skin tone, boosting the collagen production, clearing acne and lessens the appearance of wrinkles.

Beauty from Within

The beauty supplement and food market has transformed over the years from hair, skin and nail vitamins to cookies, drinks, mix-ins, even sunscreens that are formulated with nutrients to nourish the building blocks of skin at the cellular level.

Clients today are looking for those holistic approaches to skin wellness and interestingly, you can find some ingredients that play in both topical and ingestible products. Examples would be collagen or collagen peptides, lipids and different antioxidants and vitamins. I have seen an incredible success on my clients skin (improved firmness, hydration and diminishing of the small lines around the eyes) who have been taking daily Collagen shots, a hydrolyzed collagen supplements from Image skin care.

Why is important to supply important nutrients from within?

Well….Skin’s antioxidant reservoir is the first line of defense against environmental challenges and oxidative stress.
The reservoir is depleted naturally as we age and with exposure to UV radiation.
Replenishing antioxidants into our skin is a good strategy to enhance skin wellness. Interestingly, several natural antioxidants have been implicated in protection from UV damage—the number one preventable cause of skin aging.

Natural antioxidants from fruits and vegetables, such as pigments from the carotenoid family are leading ingredients serving as ‘edible sunscreens’ and complementing topical protection.

I did some research and found out that two-thirds of consumers see the concept of taking a supplement for skin care as normal. It is not surprising to me, as I have been taking beauty supplements for years. Two main supplements that play an important role in skin care in addition to collagen shots are vitamin C and magnesium. Of course, first I recommend drinking plenty of water with ingestibles, as not hydrating enough is a common mistake and consulting with your doctor. Additionally, we must understand that results are not immediate. As with topical skin care products, it’s important to consistently follow the protocol.

In order for an ingestible skin care product to really start working, the active ingredients, such as antioxidants, need to accumulate in the skin—a process which could take a few weeks.

It is wise to start thinking about dual approach of combining topical products that provide results you can feel in short term with ingestible products that slowly but safely enhance skin wellness and overall wellness.

Collagen Induction Therapy AKA Microneedeling

I am super excited to share something NEW with you! It`s been one of the hardest treatments to bring into my practice.  I have been working on laboring this treatment for months so it is very special to me and I can`t wait for you guys to try it and see the amazing results.

I am introducing Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) also known as Microneedeling.

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is one of the hottest topics in skin care today-and for a good reason. It`s a clinically proven treatment that, produces collagen and elastin in aging skin. This is also known as Microneedeling, a process in which microneedles puncture the skin to stimulate and manipulate the body`s natural healing properties. This technology is a revolutionary improvement to traditional collagen-synthesizing therapies like dermabrasion, chemical peeling or laser resurfacing.
CIT/Microneedeling is a safe and effective method for all skin types to improve fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, reducing the pore size, skin tightening, as well as veriety of other skin ailments.

To better understand how microneedling works, let’s first take a closer look into the arena in which it performs. The skin is the body’s largest and most essential organ; it is in a constant state of fluctuation. Dead cells of the outer layers are continuously shed and replaced by inner cells that move up toward the surface. Skin is composed of two primary layers: the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is the outermost protective layer; it is meant to protect the body from outside elements and to act as a water-resistant barrier that prevents essential nutrients from leaving the body. The dermis—commonly known as the “true skin”—is the most important layer since it is home to the essential functioning components of the skin. This layer is made up of fibroblasts, which are primarily responsible for producing collagen and elastin.

Collagen makes up 70% of the dermis and it plays a vital role in the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin. At the average age of 35, almost half of the collagen that we were born with is lost. As a result, degenerative skin changes can become visible. As the skin ages, it begins to lose its firmness and elasticity, but it can be rejuvenated.

During the process of micronee­dling, small micro-channels are created in the skin to activate the body’s natural healing response. While vertical needle insertion and a fast perforation process renders less discomfort (in contrast to other collagen-synthesizing therapies), there is enough stimulation for the ‘injured’ skin to shift into “regeneration mode.”

During the regeneration cycle, the body intensifies the release of growth factors within the deeper layers of the skin. As a result, collagen and elastin production is accelerated to heal the wound, which builds new layers of healthy skin cells. The micro-channels that are created offer optimal opportunities for better absorption of therapeutic serums.

Get your skin Red Carpet Ready

Celebrities are sprucing themselves up for their debut at next week’s 89th Academy Awards. The Oscars are a chance for these superstars to let the world see what and who they are wearing on the Red Carpet. The pressure is on to up the ante as they grace the world with their presence. There are many items to obsess over when getting “Red Carpet Ready”.

Outfit, hair, jewelry, shoes, makeup, skin care and skin care treatments are among the few considerations in becoming “Red Carpet Ready”. According to, Oscar nominated LaLa Land co-star, Emma Stone makes sure to use a tinted moisturizer or BB cream to achieve a “velvet-like” base for her flawless skin.

Every great painting begins with a beautiful and clean canvas. Tinted Moisturizers, BB Creams, Primers and exfoliators are all products that are often used to achieve a smooth, clean canvas but your skin treatments are of equal importance. As with diet and exercise you will have longer lasting and impactful weight loss when you consider lifestyle changes in both areas. Your skin care success is similar. Impeccable skin comes with seeking professional assistance with both your homecare and professional skin treatments.
“Every great painting begins with a beautiful and clean canvas”

A “lunch time peel” followed with the Coolifting is a great way to achieve impeccably smooth skin right before an event. A lunch time peel is a quick treatment using alpha hydroxyl acids, usually referred to as AHA’s. Coolifting is the latest technology available where hyaluronic acid gets infused with CO2. Skin is immediately smoother, lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, and collagen gets a stimulating boost in your dermis. These types of treatments can be done in no time without harsh effects or peeling. In fact, these types of professional treatments immediately lift, tone, firm, and smooth your skin, creating the perfect canvas for your makeup.
Like our celebrity “icons”, we have red carpet events that we need to make sure that we are ready for. Start prepping your skin for a more youthful, smooth and flawless canvas by incorporating retinols or AHA’s into your skin care regimen. Make sure that you stop using these ingredients at least 7 days before your professional treatment with your skin therapist. And, you too can be “Red Carpet Ready”.

Don’t skip the morning cleanse!! Why??


Clinets like to follow celebrity trends; however, the celebrity trend of skipping the A.M. cleanse is one they should not follow. Celebrities like Kirsten Dunst, Alexa Chung and Kristen Bell have said they don’t wash their face in the morning, according to a report by a Observer. I have to tell you that this is a terrible idea.

Why It’s Bad
We sweat when we sleep. Also, skin picks up detritus from pillows. Retinoids and pm products should be washed off before the application of am products. In addition, it is important for skin to be clean for better product absorption.

How To A.M. Cleanse
Although we must cleanse in the morning, we do not need the double cleanse as we may have to do an night. However, most skin care professionals recommend having two cleansers on hand depending on skin condition.
The client needs an emollient cleanser if the client is dehydrated, a non-drying gel cleansers if the client’s skin is feeling normal to oily and something mild if the skin is feeling irritated.

Why is cleanser important?

Cleanser creates a clean canvas for the applications that are following. If skin isn’t properly cleansed, the products will not be able to penetrate properly into the skin. They will seat on top of the surface and you will not get the benefits that you should get from the.
Invest in a good cleanser, its usually the cheapest item in the routine, but many people think they can get away with a over the counter drying, toxic cleanser.

“How Do I Get Rid Of A Blemish Fast?”

“How do I get rid of a blemish fast?” is a very common question I get from my clients.

Here are my five expert tips for getting a zit to go away quickly, while minimizing a stubborn red scar and post inflammatory pigmentation.

1. Your body will do everything it can to heal a blemish fast. The human body is truly amazing. The expression “time heals all wounds” is true when it comes to our minds, bodies and skin. For example, when a smoker finally decides to quit smoking, the lungs can actually start to heal themselves from the damage associated with nicotine. When you accidentally cut yourself, the skin quickly stimulates repair processes to help close and heal the wound. When it comes to blemishes, when one appears, your skin will do everything it can to get it to heal and make it go away fast—even if you do not treat it with a topical acne spot treatment. (Note: The tooth is the only part of the human body that can’t repair itself.) …

2. When you get a red, painful blemish, ONE of two things will happen:
The infection inside the blemish will work its way up to the surface of the skin resulting in a whitehead. If your skin could talk, it would say, “There is an infection and I want it out. The way I’ll take care of this is to excrete the infection through the skin’s surface.” This type of blemish is called a pustule.


The infection will NOT come up to the surface. It will stay deep within the skin until the body eventually re-absorbs it. If your skin could talk, it would say, “I’m just going to hang out down here for a bit. Don’t worry, I’ll go away on my own but I’m going to be kind of an annoying bump for a while.” This type of blemish is called a cyst.

3. To get it to go away quickly, choose and use your spot treatments wisely.
FOR PUSTULAR BLEMISHES: The best course of action is to NOT act the minute you feel it coming on by using a overly drying spot treatment, instead, apply an anti-inflammatory acne treatment like Dermaclear Serum or simply leave it alone and wait a day or two for the infection to appear on the surface. Waiting will allow you to effectively control the blemish without damaging and drying out the skin. Once the whitehead is truly visible, gently squeeze out the infection with your fingers wrapped in tissue and then once it’s removed, apply a spot-drying treatment, which will work its way into the opening of the skin and dry things up from within. If you apply a drying treatment before the whitehead is on the surface, it will simply dry out the surface of the skin keeping the infection trapped underneath for longer which ultimately will make the blemish last longer and cause more damage to the skin. However, at any stage of the breakout, it’s a good idea to try to keep the blemish calm and bacteria minimized.

FOR CYSTIC BLEMISHES: Mostly occurring in the chin and jaw areas, it is important to remember that cysts are like submarines; they are meant to stay under the skin. No matter what method you employ, cysts will never rise to the surface of the skin. This means no picking!

4. Picking at a blemish only makes things worse.
When a blemish appears, it is embarrassing. The whole point of picking it is that you don’t want anyone to see it, so you are trying to get rid of it. However, you must ask yourself this: What is more noticeable, a closed bump or an oozing, bleeding scab? A bump is smooth, can be camouflaged with makeup and is only glaring in certain lights. A scab, on the other hand, is a rough surface that doesn’t take well to makeup and becomes impossible to hide during the healing process and for a long time after. What I thought was helping me was actually detrimental for my looks. Not only that, but picking is rough on the skin. Need more reasons to sit on your hands?

-It is Unsanitary: An open wound is open to infection
-It is Unattractive: Scabbing is a drawn-out process filled with dried flakes.
-It is Damaging: Take it as a sign that pitting sounds suspiciously close to picking.
If you must squeeze, only do so when the whitehead is truly visible.

5. After a blemish is healed, wearing sunscreen will help the scar fade more rapidly.
A post-breakout scar is dark in color because the inflammation from the blemish triggers the skin to produce pigment cells. The solution to get it to fade as quickly as possible is to use a skin lightening, exfoliating and anti-inflammatory product. Did you know wearing sunscreen helps expedite the healing and fading process? If the affected skin is exposed to daylight, the UV rays stimulate the melanin cells – even if it’s cloudy outside – making the scar darker and redder in color and visible longer. For acne-prone skin, it’s very important to find a sunscreen formula that doesn’t clog the pores or encourage acne and breakouts. Check out our best-selling Image Oil-Free Prevention SPF 32.

Bottom line: Be smart when it comes to caring for your blemishes. Think before you treat and your blemish will be gone in no time. The choice is yours.

How important is your facial appointment before the holidays?


Holiday season is just around the corner. This is the time where we get busy with parties, family events, shopping and other things that go along with the holidays.
This is a busy time, time of stress and as you know stress is not good for the body, especially not beneficial for the skin….

As the season is approaching I have been noticing that some of my customers are canceling appointments because they fill like they can’t afford a facial because holidays are approaching.
Well… the truth is- this is the time you should be caring for the skin even more!!
You have parties to attend to, family events where you want your skin to glow, since you will see people you haven’t seen in a while.
I am pretty sure you don’t want them to think…”Oh gosh she has aged since the last time i saw her”… With the holidays, there comes the fact that our diet doesn’t stay consistent and the healthiest. We tend to consume more adult beverages than usual, eating more sweets and drinking water goes out of the window….
All this factors are creating problems in the body, and since the skin is the largest organ, it gets effected the most.

Please think about those things before you make a decision and cancel your monthly appointment. Skin is not like hair where you can see the roots and you have to have them color, nor it is like nails!! Skin damage creeps on us slowly, you can’t tell its unhealthy and that it needs attention until its really badly damages, dehydrated, not glowing looking and you feel like you need help. When you get to that point, you went way too far.

Always remember that prevention is easier and therefore cheaper than it is correction. For a monthly facial you spend less than your monthly cost of coffee at the Sturbacks every morning.

Be smart, be wise, make good choices for your body and your skin!
