It doesn’t have to be that way this year!
Read on to learn how to get your delicate neck and décolleté areas ready for some outdoor fun!
The neck and décolleté areas are the most neglected areas when it comes to skincare, yet they are extremely vulnerable to wrinkles and require special care. These sensitive areas must be cared for just like your face and body if you want beautiful skin all over.
While acne and other skincare issues are not prominent in these areas, the lack of care is eventually revealed through dark, dry, flaky skin, dark spots, and deep wrinkles.Your esthetician can create a program to help restore soft, vibrant skin. Call today to reserve your consultation.
To reveal glowing, healthy skin in the neck and décolleté areas between spa visits, follow these tips:
Moisturize!! Be sure to include the neck and chest areas when completing your daily face and body moisturizing regimen.
Use a thicker night cream before bedto restore firmness and softness.
Be sure to exfoliate weekly at home between spa visits to keep skin soft and supple.
Most importantly, ALWAYS use sunscreen with a high SPF when outdoors to avoid the sun’s damaging rays.
For best results and to keep your skin looking healthy and young, be as consistent as possible with your skincare routine while following your esthetician’s recommendations.

Question for Holistic Nutritionist, Linda Wolschlager, C.N.C.
Q. I have a terrible time controlling my snacking. What is one simple trick that can help me to get a grip on it?
A. Identify triggers–Keep a food log for a week, record your moods, think about what stresses you out, and how hungry you feel before eating. It may seem time consuming, but if you are really serious about wanting to lose some weight, recording every morsel you have eaten goes a long way to give you those “Aha!” moments.
Once you’ve identified the things that drive you to eat the things you shouldn’t, you can react productively instead of going through a bag of chips. That simple trick to keep cravings at bay which seems “too-easy-to-be- true-but-is”, would be to drink a-10 oz. glass of water, then set the timer and wait 15 minutes before grabbing that mindless treat. You may be surprised to find you were actually just thirsty when that “thirst desire” center of your brain has slowed down. The craving for that food will undoubtedly dissipate by this simple trick.

“Outstanding service, exceptional quality, and always a smiling face when you walk in the door. I had been going to the same person for massages for over twenty years, and they were rather skeptical when I was told that Maciek was really good. A year later and a new massage home, I can say that really good was an understatement – he’s excellent, and the spa is great. As a musician that has been plagued by years of too much tension in my body, Maciek’s work allows me to play freely and get a fresh start every time I walk out. My sound, breathing, resonance, and ability to play the way that I should be able to play came back. It is invaluable to my well being as a musician and a human being. Thai massage opened up a whole new world of intensity and exploration as well. I highly recommend visiting Spa Mariana. You’ll be hooked!” – Shelly R.
“Can’t wait for my next visit to Spa Mariana! You guys are so warm and friendly! I had such a lovely experience all around!
Until next time.” – Erin P.
“I bought a couples massage, and the experience was unbelievable. The massage was amazing and the treat afterwards was a huge plus. Very nice presentation (champagne, strawberries and chocolates). I will be back for more!” – Lucia M.
