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 Series from the Spa at PGA Tip #2: Fight the Sun’s Damaging Effects

x

Tanning during the summer is incredibly relaxing, but the sun can take a serious toll on your skin. So how can we get that summer glow and still take care of our skin?

According to Paula Taylor, leading massage therapist from the Spa at PGA National, a skin care regime is vital in order to obtain that healthy summer tan. “In order to prolong your tan and keep your skin soft, frequent exfoliation and moisturizer are essential, ” Taylor said.

Sugar scrubs are a sweet way to exfoliate your skin during the summer time. “Sugar scrubs based in coconut oil do both by deeply penetrating the skin with the hydration that dry skin craves,” Taylor said.

The Spa at PGA National offers several exfoliation services in a relaxing environment to keep your skin looking healthy and smooth. So, come check out the Spa’s retail boutique for a wide selection of skin care products for purchase.

The Youth Revelation Facial at the Spa at PGA National Resort

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Spa at PGA National Resort recently added a variety of services to their spa menu featuring the Phytomer line of products. According to the Spa at PGA’s Aesthetician, Gulnur, natural resources from the Mediterranean Sea like algae and seaweed are used to create these top of the line marine based products. Gulnur enthusiastically explained that the various kinds of seaweed and algae offer up some stupendous results like skin rejuvenation, firming, tightening and softening of the skin in addition to detoxification as well.

The Spa at PGA

I had the pleasure of  enjoying a treatment administered by an Aesthetician named Gulnur called The Youth Revelation Facial with Back Treatment. Gulnur spoke very passionately about the Phytomer product line and her passion for skincare really shined through. She was truly a pro at what she does.

Highlights of the Youth Revelation Facial with Back Treatment included:

  • A back treatment to start – a seaweed mixture was applied to a plastic layer that was on the massage bed. Then a layer of gauze between me and the mixture. This mixture behind my back was heated and had a bubbling sensation down my spine like nothing I have experienced before. This sensation lasted  for at least the first 20 minutes of my facial.
  • Double the cleansing steps: Gulnur manually massaged my face and decollete with a milky cleanser first. Then she used the Clarisonic cleansing brush system to apply a gel cleanser giving me a pleasant facial massage with the brush.
  • Double the exfoliating treatment applications – Gulnur used a resurfacing exfoliant that has 3 different sized grains in it to exfoliate the different layers of dry skin from largest to smallest.  Then she used an Enzymatic Exfoliant that is made with Red Algae. Red Algae increases circulation in the face, leaving me with a  radiant appearance.
  • Double the masks – Gulnur gently painted on a rebalancing Self Heating Mask  made from freeze dried Laminaria,  a brown seaweed rich in vitamins. It was applied to gauze on my face and then similiar to a body wrap a layer of foil was applied to retain heat.  This was meant to detoxify the skin while also hydrating at the same time. The second mask was a smoothing mask which offers you an instant “face lift” since it actual plasticizes on the face. Gulnur was able to remove this mask all in one lift! 
  • Double the results– this facial not only cleanses the skin thoroughly but it helps with cell regeneration and detoxification of the skin at the same time.

Things you should know about the Youth Revelation Facial:

  •  While the benefits of this facial offer instant gratification leaving you with a radiant,smooth, lifted and detoxified complexion extractions are not part of this facial.
  • There is a slightly unpleasant odor to this treatment as the products are all directly from the sea they also smell like they are directly from the sea. The odor was slightly fishy but absolutely bearable once you see the results. Plus the top notch Aestheticians do everything to make the experience comfortable and enjoyable for you during your treatment.
  • An exciting benefit for all Spa at PGA National guests is access to the Waters of the World where you can enjoy three different pools and an infinity style outdoor jacuzzi before or after your treatment. Or sunbathe on a comfy lounge chair while sipping on smoothies and dining on healthy spa cuisine.
