Spread Some Love This February
Many people consider February to be the month of love. That might have something to do with Valentine’s Day. But let’s consider this idea.

How about a nice spa treatment to lift her spirits? A gift certificate for a manicure would really boost her self-esteem and give her confidence to ace that job interview. A small gesture on your part, but a gift she will never forget and maybe pay it forward someday. So, how about it? Let’s spread some love this February and start a positive movement. (more…)

The Perfect Gift for Your Man
Valentine’s Day is not just for the ladies you know. So while you are dropping hints about what you would like for Valentine’s Day, think about a special memorable gift for your man to show him how much he means to you. Give him the gift of spa this Valentine’s Day. Forget about those practical guy gifts. Pamper him a little. Many guys today are getting massage and manicures, and facials too.

What’s Your Spa Etiquette?
If you are going to a day spa to get a manicure, pedicure or massage, then there are a few things that you will have to keep in mind. Knowing the proper etiquette will help you get the most out of your treatment.
Arrive at least 15 Minutes in Advance
You should arrive at the day spa early. You might have a form to fill out before you get your spa treatment. Arriving early will make sure that you have enough time to fill out forms and get your manicure, pedicure or massage on time.
Turn off Your Phone
You will need to turn off your cell phone before you get your spa treatment. It is rude to carry on conversations with other people while you are getting your treatment. (more…)
Show Off Your Unique Personality
The Benefits of Using Nail Art to Flaunt Your Personality
Nail art can be used to express your personality to the world around you. You can make your own designs with some practice, but you can also get it done at the spa. Getting a manicure is fun and relaxing, and it makes you feel good about yourself. That’s because looking nice makes you feel happy too.
Hand care is important because your hands are one of the most visibly noticeable parts of you. You should keep your nails clipped and filed in your favorite shape to show off who you are. When you hand a cashier money in a store or shake someone’s hand at work, they will notice how well you have taken care of your hands. If you have nail art, your hands will be especially noticeable and you should expect to receive a lot of compliments. Even a simple multi-color striped pattern looks fantastic.
Have a Perfectly Pampered Holiday
Use Your Christmas Gift Cards Right Away At a Day Spa
The holidays are a great time to pamper yourself at a day spa in order to relieve your stress from all of the activities such as Christmas shopping, attending parties or visiting relatives. The holiday season is also a time when the weather changes, leading to colder temperatures that cause you to have aching joints and sore muscles that require massage therapy. When you receive a gift card for Christmas, make sure to use it right away on your favorite spa treatments, including:
• A facial – choose from exfoliating, deep cleansing or moisturizing varieties
• A manicure – soaking, trimming and polishing your fingernails
• A massage – invigorating or relaxing types of massage therapy
• A pedicure – soaking your feet and trimming your toenails
You can spend several hours at a day spa having your own relaxing vacation to alleviate the tension in your neck, shoulders and back with a massage while improving the appearance of your facial skin, hands and feet.
Spend an Entire Day Getting Pampered by Estheticians and Massage Therapists
In some cases, the therapists and estheticians can work together at the same time to provide several spa treatments at once in only a few hours. Alternatively, you can use a gift card for a full day of pampering that is designed for beautifying your entire body and face while reducing your stress.
Request Additional Amenities During Your Spa Treatments
While receiving a massage, facial, manicure or pedicure, you can also request additional amenities such as listening to soothing music, smelling aromatic candles or having applications of fragrant essential oils. After undergoing massage therapy and other treatments, you will have less stress and more energy along with having gorgeous fingernails, skin, and toenails to begin the next year.
Christmas Gift Giving
If you want to give a present to someone this Christmas, then buy a gift certificate for a local day spa. After the busy holiday season ends, the person who receives your present can visit the day spa to enjoy a spa treatment that includes one of these services:
• A manicure – cuticle removal and fingernail polishing
• A massage – relaxing or invigorating treatments on the body
• A facial – exfoliation, moisturizing or cleansing
• A pedicure – soaking the feet followed by toenail polishing
• Hair waxing – removal of body or facial hair
• Haircut – getting a new haircut
• Hairstyling – having your hair styled for a special event
• Makeup application – having your makeup applied by an expert
• Hair coloring – having your hair dyed
• Body wraps – wrapping the body in mud or emollients (more…)
What Your Nails Say About You
Even if you have the most pristine makeup, gorgeous hair, and stunning clothes, if your fingernails and toenails aren’t on point, your whole look will suffer. The truth is that nail care should be an essential part of your beauty routine. Nails that are unshaped, dull-looking and marked by cuticles which haven’t been groomed in months are hard to go unnoticed.
Luckily, this can be helped with a simple manicure and pedicure at a day spa. Just like a striking dress or a unique hairstyle, getting a manicure and pedicure done regularly allows you to express yourself creatively by using your nails as your canvas. (more…)
A Winter Wedding? Bridal Nail Designs
When it comes to your beautiful, winter wedding, don’t forget your manicure should reflect your special day. Your wedding dress will be gorgeous, along with perfect hair and makeup, so why not spend a day at the spa and also consider the stunning nail designs that complement the entire ensemble?
Winter weather is unique in itself; depending on what location your nuptials will be held, you could feel crisp air and see a lovely blanket of snow. Your manicure should feature sparkle, bling, shine and anything else that signifies this picturesque season of the year. (more…)
Hands and Feet Paraffin Treatment
Spa treatments are important for taking care of your body, and you can transform a regular manicure into an amazing experience through the benefits offered by paraffin wax. While many people see this service offered at their day spa, they are often hesitant to try the new treatment because they do not know what it will involve. Yet, asking for a paraffin wax treatment at your next beauty spa appointment will provide you with the following benefits that will make it become one of your favorite parts of your beauty routine.
What Happens During the Procedure?
Paraffin wax is usually used during a manicure or pedicure as an additional treatment. Before the procedure, paraffin wax is heated to a comfortable temperature. Then, your hands and feet will be dipped into the wax, and it will be allowed to cool until it is solid. The wax is then removed once it has cooled. While the entire procedure only takes minutes, it leaves behind multiple benefits.
What Are the Benefits of Paraffin Wax Treatment?
This is one of the most popular spa treatments available because it promotes a sense of relaxation. Having your hands dipped into the warm wax is a sensory experience that generates feelings of positive well-being. The warm wax also offers therapeutic benefits during a pedicure such as removing dead skin as it is peeled away. The wax also helps to increase the skin’s ability to retain moisture, which leaves your hands and feet completely soft and smooth.
Touchable, soft skin is an immediate benefit of having a paraffin wax treatment done at your day spa. Yet, the benefits just continue as you enjoy the pampering feeling of spending a few minutes enveloping your skin in warmth. The softness also extends the benefits of your manicure so that you feel your best from head to toe.
