Goblins, ghosts, ghouls, oh my! Halloween is around the corner but there is so much to be excited for in October. Pumpkin everything and International Coffee Day just happens to go hand in hand with World Vegetarian Day on the first! Coffee is a bean, after all!
We also welcome basketball and hockey back to the calendars, and sit not-so-patiently through nine innings of the World Series. October also marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so please take time to get checked (this includes men!) and remind your friends.
Historically, Germans called October Wein-mond, meaning wine month, and we fully intend to celebrate this history. Cheers!
See you soon at the spa!
It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Leave The Scary Faces To Halloween!
It isn’t just dry skin that craves the love of a pumpkin facial mask and a facial. All skin types benefit from cleansing, soothing and moisturizing. No more scary faces! Instead, try a customized facial.
Purchase a customized facial this month and receive a complimentary eye treatment (a value of $15).
Make your skin a priority and you’ll notice a change within a couple of short weeks. Plus, being intentional feels good. It’s a relaxing and refreshing way to end your evening, scrubbing the day from your face and starting anew at night. Skincare is an act of reinvigorating self-love and we can all use more of that!
Flawless skin takes work. While it’s true there are a few lucky people that don’t need to put effort into their perfect, clear skin, the majority of us do. As we age, this becomes even truer, because we try to fight off wrinkles and a host of other skin concerns that arise with aging (and by aging, we mean anyone over 30). Below, we’ve rounded up some of the most common skin problems we see at the spa, and the easy solutions to combat them!
Acne It doesn’t just affect young people. Acne is a frustrating problem for adults as well. Humidity, stress, diet, sweating and bad hygiene can cause acne. A lot of treatments are out there but we recommend beginning with a healthy diet, good hygiene habits (wash your face daily), and coming in for regular facials to deep clean your pores as you remove the impurities from your skin. If you’re lost when it comes to the best products for your face, we will recommend what will work for your skin type. Just ask! The spa team is well-versed on the products we offer!
Eczema It’s estimated that over 30 million Americans have eczema, and it’s often much more than just a frustrating patch of skin. It can be itchy, and scratching can cause more problems like swelling, redness, cracking, oozing and overall unsightly skin. It is so important to keep skin moisturized with the right products and also to try to address the cause of eczema. Unfortunately, many doctors simply treat the symptoms, opting for prescription treatments instead of looking into the root cause. We can help you combat these irritations and find your way to soothing, silky skin.
Rosacea Rosacea’s trademark is redness. Red cheeks, red nose and red chin. This inflammatory skin disease is frustrating and worsens if left untreated. It’s important to address factors that might trigger flares such as the sun, certain foods, and products with skin-disagreeable ingredients.
Sunburn Ah, we’ve all had that moment where we’ve looked in the mirror to confront bright, angry skin glaring back at us. Sunburn is no joke and it hurts like heck! It’s also damaging to your skin and can lead to future problems. The number one measure you can take, of course, is preventing potential damage with sunscreen. The next best thing for a sunburn is Vitamin E cream, which helps to repair your skin after a burn. If you’ve been scorched multiple times in the past and have sun-damaged skin or sun spots now, we can use several different treatments as remedies. When you’re ready, let’s walk through a complimentary consultation of your options!
Wrinkles This is the evidence of aging that none of us will escape: wrinkles! And what’s the number one cause of wrinkles? Cigarettes! Put an end to smoking today, for your skin and for innumerable other reasons. You can prevent wrinkles by using a moisturizer daily, wearing sunscreen and taking care of your skin to keep it healthy. To find out more about revitalizing skin and reducing wrinkles, let’s discuss the treatments tailored specifically to wipe out your pesky wrinkles.
Give yourself some love and self-care by addressing these skin concerns. Visit the spa and we will help you! Or if you want to chat about anything mentioned above, give us a call.
Nothing says fall quite like soup, and we’re having a love affair with squash soup. This one is so healthy and so delicious!
