Try This: Cooling Relief Facial

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!

Hairstyles We Love for Summer 2015

Memorial Day Weekend is right around the corner, ushering in South Carolina’s favorite season–summer! Therefore, here are some of our favorite summer styles of which we can’t get enough:

1. The voluminous bob











Seen here on Julianne Hough performing on Lip Sync Battle (this show is awesome if you don’t watch, by the way), this bob has tons of volume and bend to give it a fresh, youthful look. We love it for summer: because it’s easy to maintain and will look great with strapless dresses!

2. The grown-out pixie











This has been popular for a few years now and is still a summertime favorite of ours. Why we love it for summer: you can dry it quickly (or let it air dry), and run your fingers through it with some wax to make it piecey. If you’re going for a more elegant look, try curling a few pieces near your face or adding a pretty headband. 

3. Braids











Braids are ultra cool-girl summer staple. Why we love it for summer: it’s casual, pulls your hair off of your gorgeous, sun-kissed face and you can dress them up or down for night and day shenanigans. 

4. Go Pink











Stars have been dying their hair all shades of green, purple and blue, but we actually think pink looks great on a variety of skin tones and hair textures. Why we love it for summer: Because when is there a better time to go pink?

Lowcountry Live Spotlights Maya Chia

Untitled design (38)

Maya Chia is a wonderful oil that, unlike other moisturizers, soaks into your skin quickly. Made from Chia, the most nutrient-rich plant on Earth, it penetrates deeply and nourishes your skin. That’s why all of our Charleston locations are currently carrying Maya Chia–and why we think you should look into them, too!

Lowcountry Live spotlights the product line beautifully, so we’ll leave it to them:
