5 Reasons You Need a Facial Now

1. It’s been a long, hot summer

Being outside and in the sun may have taken its toll. Is your skin feeling dry and tight from overwashing? Or maybe you’re suffering from clogged pores due to an overproduction of oil? Come on in for a cooling facial refresh and walk out with a supple, clear complexion.

2. The boss is stressing you out

Are you having a tough time at work? Deadlines got you down? Take solace for over an hour in our dark, cool, relaxing environment. Sip on some cucumber water in your robe and let your aesthetician scrub the stress away.

3. You’re seeing fine lines

No one can stop Father Time, and who would want to? You get better with age! But if the fine lines around your eyes or mouth are starting to bug you, a super moisturizing facial can be just what you need. Try adding on a rehydration treatment to any of your favorite facials.

4. You’re a picker

Are you one of the many women who love to pop zits? It’s incredibly damaging to your skin. If you are seeing white or blackheads crop up, schedule a facial and resist the urge to pick! You risk more pimples, infection and even scarring.

5. You’ve got an event coming up

Want to be photog ready for an event? A facial is a great way to get your skin smooth and healthy for any event. Our expert aestheticians use only the best products with lots of natural goodness designed to rejuvenate your skin – whether it be your face or back!

But who really needs a “reason” to get a facial? If you want to kick back, relax and look as amazing as you feel, then we’re ready to help. Schedule your appointment at any of our Urban Nirvana Day Spa locations today!

It is officially July, which means the hottest part of summer is coming. Why not relieve your skin from the heat with a cooling relief facial? Urban Nirvana’s expert estheticians and glo therapeutics products are a match made in facial heaven!

urban nirvana cooling relief facial - july 2015

The Assessment: This facial emphasizes moisture, so it is amazing for most skin types, but may not be recommended for severe acne-prone or very sensitive skin.

The Facial Rundown: We cleanse, tone, exfoliate with Lactic 20%, apply a neutralizer, spray a calming flower mist, and massage it into the skin. Then we apply a Cucumber Recovery Mask, hydrate and moisturize, add a protective layer with SPF 50 and then, last but not least, we finish off with a refreshing mist. Feeling relaxed yet?

What You Get: Here’s the best part. When you purchase any glo therapeutics serum or moisturizer, you’ll receive the Eye Fix Revitalizing Treatment as a free gift while supplies last (an $18 value).

Book your appointment for a Cooling Relief Facial online at any of our Day Spa locations!
