How to Prepare for a Spa Day

The skincare industry is ever changing and evolving just like the condition of our skin throughout seasons. Spa-ing has ceased being a luxury and is now a necessity. We have shifted from “pampering” ourselves to “wellness” or “aging well”. Why not get your eyebrows shaped, waxed and receive a facial during the time of your lunch break?

We see a new trend in “express” or “lunch time” treatments and Epicuren has a number of effective options to accommodate you. They are quick, results-driven treatments that will maintain the healthy glow you are looking for!

If you're a first time spa go-er, the initial visit should include a very thorough consultation of around 15 minutes (ideally in a private room) to go over your skin type, condition, and any concerns you may have.

From there, you should be asked what products you currently use at home, your life style, any health conditions, what brought you to that particular facility, and what your short and long term skincare goals are. Always keep in mind that this is your time and should be used as a "getting to know you" session.

This is not only about you giving information but also a time for you to ask any and all questions you may have so keep the questions flowing. This time should be fun, interactive, and very informative. A thorough session may also include a brief look at your skin under a skin scanner and the aesthetician should explain any findings. You may also do a before photo so that your results may be tracked over time.

All these mentioned should give you a comfortable easy feeling knowing you are in the hands of a professional and that you will be well taken care of. In addition, if not offered, make sure to request a suggested homecare routine for your skin to achieve optimal results!

Remember, you have gone to the expert and you trust them for the answers. This is all part of the five star service you are paying for and that you deserve!
