At Home Spa Party

Natalie New, an esthetician and nail technician with the Spa at PGA National, recently just organized an at home spa event and let us in on how the event played out:

“Michele Lackovic recently called and spoke to me, regarding her daughter Anna’s upcoming tenth birthday. She wanted to create an at home spa party and hoped I could facilitate her event. “Absolutely,” I replied. Then the fun began!

First, we organized outside by her pool with the young ladies seated around the table. I explained the proper skin care techniques and used the Spa at PGA National’s skincare line: Phytomer. Specifically, Phytomer’s Gentle Cleansing Milk, Rose Visage Toner, Vegetal Exfoliate, and Hydracontinue moisturizing crème.

Then, Michele and I created an exciting hands-on craft session. Michele ordered Old Navy flip-flops online and selected ribbon from a craft store to tie bows.

As their take home gifts, she gave away Lavender Epsom Salts and mini mason jars for bath salts!

Not to mention, while the girls were in their craft session, each received toe polish changes. And of course, delicious birthday cupcakes and crustless finger sandwiches were served with spa smoothies as we completed our event.

Each young lady took home a beach bag filled with spa sandals, bath salts, wash cloths and the PGA National Resort and Spa home care kit.

“It was my favorite birthday ever,” Anna said.

Overall, helping Michelle create her daughter’s special birthday event was absolutely wonderful.”

Summer Beauty Tip # 3: Use Gel Manicure & Pedicure for Summer Travels

ImageThis summer everyone is going to get their GEL manicure and pedicure right before they leave for vacations! Acrylic nails are a thing of the past, and now it’s all about getting the gel manicure and pedicure.

Gel has been trending for quite some time because it offers so many great benefits. The Gel lasts for about two to three weeks, which is conveniently the amount of time for a summer vacation. You can leave right after and even go swimming without damaging it!

The Spa at PGA National offers Gel manicure and pedicures with the OPI GelColor line. Angie Rawlins Nail Technician from the Spa at PGA National highly recommends using the Gel for your summer manicure and pedicure.

“Normally you have to wait at least a half hour for your nails to dry with a regular manicure, but with the Gel manicure or pedicure you can leave as soon as possible,” Rawlins said.


Once you get back from your summer travels, it’s very important to make the second appointment for soaking off the gel. The “soak off” normally takes anywhere between 10-15 minutes. “Peeling off the gel by yourself will dry off your nail because you’re also peeling off little layers of your nails when the gel is being removed,” Rawlins said.

So, make sure to stop by the Spa at PGA National for all of your Gel manicure & pedicure needs!


P.S. If you’re having trouble with picking out a color, just remember that bright and florescent are totally in this summer. Any kind of neon or bright gel color will make compliment your summer tan.

alyson photoMany women under-estimate the beauty of eye brows. Believe it or not, the brows define and shape the entire facial structure. If your brows are done, with a little eye shadow, mascara and lip gloss your whole face appears to be done and gives the illusion your makeup is complete!

Step one –use  Luka brand tinted brow wax to shape and shade in the brow, a little of this product goes a long way.
Step two –  use concealer to clean around the bottom and top of the brow for a clean natural look.
Step three – use a clear brow gel to comb through brow to set it.
“And voila you have brows!” 
Stop by the Spa at PGA National to experience Luka Cosmetics yourself and meet Alyson, Resident Make Up Artist.

Lady Spa Spa’s 8 Ways to Cure your Holiday Hangover

Doesn’t it seem like the holidays always come with a hangover?  From office parties, to chic cocktails, to family engagements and late nights dressed in a tacky Christmas sweater, the holidays can leave you looking less than lovely the morning after.  Now face the next day wide-eyed and bushy-tailed with these fail-proof beauty essentials to help you cure any holiday hangover.

1.     Cleanse last night away with the Dr. LeWinn by Kinerase HydraBalance Foaming Cleanser. A soap-free and non-drying, balancing formula restores the skin’s natural protective barrier to help it regain and retain lost moisture.

2.     Wake up your skin with a cooling spritz of the Jurlique Chamomile Soothing Mist to leave even the most tired skin feeling refreshed and hydrated.

3.     Now lock in the moisture with the Kinerase Advanced Lotion to condition while supporting your skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid. This gentle lotion visibly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles leaving you looking better than ever.

4.     Finish off your complexion rehab with a light layering of the Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Multi-Benefit Skin Care Makeup  or your favorite brand of BB Cream to even out your skin-tone while avoiding the dreaded “cake face.”

5.     Face feeling fresh but your eyes looking a little bloodshot? Start with the Dr. LeWinn by Kinerase Under Eye Recovery  to soothe and deflate puffiness for a bright-eyed appearance. As an added bonus, this affordable wonder also decreases dark circles as it brightens.

6.     Neutralize the redness and draw attention outward with a pale reflective shadow like Too Faced Exotic Color Eyeshadow.

7.     Complete the illusion of bigger eyes by tight-lining with the Too Faced 3 Way Lash Lining Tool.

8.      For a fresh-faced look that will leave people thinking you spent the morning doing Yoga apply a lip and cheek color like Too Faced Full Bloom Lip and Cheek Creme.
