Boost your confidence by putting your best face forward! Diminish fine lines, tighten, brighten and smooth your skin to reveal the beautiful face within!  Your esthetician can start with a chemical peel to slough off dry, dead skin followed by a hydrating mask to moisturize and calm stressed skin.  Next, lavish yourself with a hydrating facial to enhance your results.  Don’t forget to incorporate the proper home care products into your daily regimen to keep your face glowing and vibrant between spa visits.

 Radiant skin isn’t just for your face.  Your body needs tender loving care, as well! Reserve your body makeover so you can look and feel your very best in 2014.  Just like with your face, you want to remove dry, dead skin.  Revitalize your skin tone and texture, and hydrate and renew your skin’s moisture balance with a body scrub.  Then, reduce cellulite and lose inches while you remove unwanted waste and toxins with a hydrating body contour wrap. Finally, relax with a deep, therapeutic massage to further remove toxins and relieve sore muscles. You’ll feel relaxed and rejuvenated.  And, of course….moisturize!!  Your massage therapist can recommend a perfect at-home moisturizer to keep your skin smooth and supple.

Here’s another important reminder. Water is vital to detoxifying. And detoxifying is crucial for healthy, vibrant skin. Water transports nutrients to the cells and assists in eliminating wastes and toxins. You’ve heard this so many times… drink at least 6 – 8 glasses of water each day. Staying hydrated inside and out is the key to a healthy body and beautiful skin. Your body needs water. Drink up!

Buying New Shoes? Read This…

You don’t have to heading back to high school to buy a pair of new shoes this fall.

As a matter of fact, fall is one of the shoe industry’s biggest seasons!

If you are heading out to buy new shoes this fall, keep the following tips in mind:

Consider how the shoes are going to be used.

Shoes you intend to walk in frequently will have different requirements than those that will merely be used around the office at a desk job.

If your job requires you to be on your feet more often than not, it’s in your best interest to favor “comfortable” over “cute.”

Realize that it’s not possible to gauge a shoe’s comfort just by walking around the store in them.

How many shoes do you currently have in your closet that fall in the “uncomfortable” category?

Go to a store with a staff that is knowledgeable about footwear as well as different types of feet.

ShoesA well-educated staff will be more likely to help you find a good match.

Bring an old, worn pair of shoes so the staff can determine whether you pronate or supinate.

When trying on shoes, pay special attention to the toes and heel.

The toes should feel somewhat snug without feeling jammed together. Heels should not slide.

Make sure that the shoe’s width is appropriate for the width of your feet.

Avoid trying shoes on early in the day, as feet swell as the day goes on.

Instead, schedule shoe shopping at the end of the day.

We’ll make sure that a poorly tight muscles are not contributing to hip, knee, leg, ankle, and foot problems, and can also counsel you on other lifestyle choices you are making that may be affecting your feet.
