What are the Most Effective Spa Treatments?

This depends on your skin type and issues but in general:

  • Microdermabrasion or light peels are best for acne prone and oily skin
  • Massage and electrostimulation treatments are best for sallow skin with poor circulation and mild sagging
  • Facials for relaxation, extra temporary hydration, “glow” for an event and helpful for acne if there’s an acne-specific facial

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
