So you decided to book a facial but not sure which one to choose? Well let me reassure you, choosing a facial is not a test! Not knowing which facial will serve you best is exactly why estheticians like me share an entire industry to serve your individual needs.

Keep in mind that all facials will provide a deep clean, exfoliation and appropriate mask. Choosing a facial is simply asking yourself “What do I need the most right now?”. It’s the post-winter season in Detroit therefore many answers may look something like: “to make the dryness go away” or “to make my face look less red” or “make my face one even complexion” or "I need a quick pick-me-up"

Now with the end result in mind, browse the facial menu and listen to which service speaks to your present needs. On the day of your appointment we can go over your desired end result and I can customize any facial to your primary concern. 

Skip the guesswork and come ready to relax with my top five tips to improve your facial experience.

  1. Dress for success. Wear comfortable layers that can be removed leaving your arms, shoulders and decollaté completely bare.

  2. Snap a picture of your skin care products. Let your esthetician know what your routine looks like so s/he gets a fuller picture of your skin profile than just looking.

  3. Arrive 15 minutes early. Room for margin is always a good idea. The last thing you want is to be rushing to your spa appointment with nowhere to park and no idea where the restrooms are located. 

  4. Snooze your smartphone. Do not disturb is a wonderful feature that will only allow important calls to come through. Furthermore, let your people know you'll be unavailable for one hour. So go ahead and take your smartwatch off. Silence is golden.

  5. Detach. Now that you have nowhere to be and your tribe knows you are getting pampered, allow your mind to clear of your worries for the moment. It's a great time to practice mediation or just focusing on your breath.
