3 Affordable Spa Facials for Mom

Mothers, housewives, and most modern women are overworked and constantly on the go. It is no surprise that stress overload often throws a wrench in our quest for peace. We are always putting others first, and often neglecting ourselves. With Mother’s Day fast approaching, don’t you think mom (or you) deserves some spa time? For some, the thought might be enticing, but the price tag is a determent

These are my three favorite facial treatments, each with its own benefits, all under $200! (All listed prices are approximate and vary from spa to spa.)

  1.   HydraFacial MD (approx. $175 and up)

A relaxing HydraFacial is a non-invasive multistep process that combines the goodness of multiple spa treatments in one 30-minute session. Gift mom with the benefits of a chemical peel, hydradermabrasion and facial extractions without pain. HydraFacials also include the delivery of anti-aging peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid without irritation or downtime.

Benefits of a HydraFacial:

  • HydraFacials remove surface damage that attributes to signs of aging. Every day we are exposed to stress, UV rays, toxins, and pollution. All these elements have a negative impact on facial skin. The HydraFacial process removes impurities and dead skin cells, replacing them with powerful antioxidants. The serums sink deep into the layers of skin instantly cleansing and exfoliating.
  • This type of facial works well on every skin type. If you have defined wrinkles, redness, clogged pores or fine lines, HydraFacial can improve the look of your complexion. Also, there are different boosters that can be added to the treatment to address specific concerns.
  • Results are instant! Following treatment, your skin feels clean, smooth and rejuvenated. You will also look and feel well rested.
  1. European Facial (approx. $75–$100)

The classic European facial is more than a basic skin treatment, it is a spa experience. It starts with a thorough cleansing to remove dirt, impurities, and makeup.  The next step is exfoliation to eliminate dead cells and encourage cell turnover. The pores are them deep cleaned with steam before the extraction begins. Since some people have sensitive skin this step is optional. It is usually followed with a soothing antiseptic to help calm down any redness.

This is when the calming massage comes into play. A relaxing face, neck and shoulder massage is an essential part of a European facial. Once the client is feeling refreshed and, tension and stress-free, a mask is applied to the face, followed by a moisturizer.  The result is a clean, healthy, glowing complexion.

Benefits of a European Facial:

  • Removes whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples, unclogs pores
  • Detoxifies facial skin for improved circulation
  • Releases tension in the facial muscles
  • Stimulates cell turnover
  • Reduces the appearance of blemishes, fine lines, and age spots
  • Provides youthful hydration
  1. Micropeel (approx. $125)

A micro peel involves microdermabrasion and a mild chemical exfoliant to remove the outer layer of skin. This spa treatment is used to promote shedding of dead cells to reveal the fresh, healthy underlying skin. A series of micro peels followed by maintenance treatments are most effective for correcting blemishes or hyperpigmented areas or to soften fine lines.

Benefits of a Micropeel:

  • Smoother skin surface
  • More even skin tone
  • Smaller pores
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines (a stronger peel is needed to correct wrinkles)

If you are debating what type of pampering to give mom, or yourself, medical grade treatments in a reputable spa offer the most benefits. Traditional facials will clean and moisturize your skin but will not provide the added perks you will get with any of these specialized treatments. Lastly, be sure to choose your skin care provider wisely. If not applied by a trained clinician, some facials can be damaging.
