2 Hours of Self Care at Massage Envy

Spring has sprung! This is the perfect time to amp up your skin care regimen so you can have that perfect summer glow!  I know I rave about skin care and must have beauty products all the time but this is seriously the best time of year to re-evaluate what you’re putting on your face. My friends at Massage Envy must have heard my silent cry because they invited me for an afternoon of pampering and relaxation.

As soon as I walked in I was treated like royalty. I was escorted to a private room for my 1 hour massage. Since I’m not experiencing any back pain we opted for the essential therapeutic relief treatment which is ideal for mild stress and relaxation. During my one hour session that went by way too fast my therapist focused on my neck, shoulders, and lower back.  He found that I had some muscle tension and recommended that I come back monthly.

The next hour was dedicated to a healthy skin facial. Based on my skin type, texture, and concerns I went with the Murad Environmental Shield® Vitamin C Facial. This antioxidant rich treatment facial is designed to reverse the signs of aging that result from exposure to everyday environmental factors such as sunlight, smog, pollution and stress. Using patented Murad infusion technology, they deliver pure Vitamin C directly to the skin to brighten, support healthy collagen levels and neutralize skin-aging free radicals.  This treatment claims to:

  • Reduces appearance of unwanted pigmentation
  • Restores elasticity and firmness
  • Helps repair damage to skin’ surface and prevent future damage

Thankfully my skin is fairly normal. During my treatment we focused on hydration and skin pigmentation. As much as I play “skin care expert” at home, there’s nothing like seeing an actual professional. I admit I don’t get facials as often as I should but now that I’m officially in my 30s I think its time for me to get serious.

Benefits of Facials

  • Moisturizes skin
  • Reverses visible signs of aging
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Alleviates redness and sensitivity
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces blemishes and breakouts

 Even if you are blessed with amazing genetics and don’t have “problem skin” you still should get a facial at least once. The actual facial massage feels amazing and its beneficial for all skin types. Massage Envy is making it easy for you to keep up self-care because they offer a membership for only $59 a month! A monthly membership means having easy access to massages, spa facials, Murad® products and more at hundreds of locations nationwide. I don’t know of any spa (especially not in the DC area) where you can get a massage or facial for that price! You can’t beat it.

 I left extremely refreshed and relaxed. Of course I didn’t leave without taking some beauty goodies home with me.  I went with the recommendation of my aesthetician and purchased the Murad Healthy Skin Regimen Kit along with the Murad Clarifying Toner.

I’ve been using these products for over a month now and I am completely sold. The Essential-C Cleanser and the Clarifying Toner are my new favorite must haves!
