Office jobs affect more than just our posture, for instance if you spend most of your days on a keyboard, your forearms especially could probably benefit from a massage.

Sick Of Your Dull And Dry Skin? A Facial Might Be Your Saving Grace

You may love the pampering and relaxation that comes from getting a facial, but it also comes with some serious health benefits for your skin. Women of all ages claim this beauty tactic makes their skin look younger and less dull. So what causes facials to give your face this enviable glow? Mainly the cleansing, increased circulation, and lowering your stress levels. There are specific facials that may weigh heavily on one of these benefits over the others. For example, the Anti-Free Radical facial that we offer at Renaissance Day Spa is an ultra-hydrating facial meant to combat dry skin. This facial will help to improve and restore circulation to facial skin layers and increase the flow of oxygen enriched blood to the skin cells. This rush of blood to the skin gives you that healthy glow and plumps skin cells with nutrients such as vitamins A, E and D, which helps to fight free radicals that cause premature aging and dry skin. With summer almost in full swing, this may also mean the inevitable sunburn that ensues from the long beach days and summer barbeques. If this is the case, then the Plantomen Lift Off facial might be exactly […]

Facial Peels : Why they might be just what you need for heading into summer!

Healthy, glowing and youthful skin. Isn’t this what we all strive for, especially as we grow older? Thankfully, with facial peels there is a way to keep your complexion in top shape. Facial peels are now making their return in the beauty world as a great way to turn back time on an aging face. When peels were popular years ago, they really hurt which made many hesitant to try them. Thankfully, acid formulas have since been refined and so have the dermatologists’ approach. This has made the process much less painful with less recovery time required. There are many reasons to consider getting a facial peel. By casting off dull surface cells, they improve fine lines, acne and discoloration. “It turns out old chemical peels can actually deliver certain skin benefits — like reversing melasma and breakouts — better than high tech devices,” says Doris Day, a clinical associate professor of dermatology at NYU. Renaissance European Day Spa offers a variety of different types of peels depending on the result you’re looking for. Trying to reduce redness and acne? Try the Renaissance Signature Oxygenating Facial. Lack of sleep over the years left you with dark under eye circles? Our […]

5 Tips for a Successful Massage Session

There are two things that people do not like to waste and that is time and money, do not waste both during a massage session. Here are five tips to make sure your session is a successful one. Communicate: Talking to our therapists and tell them your concerns is the first step to a successful session. Inform them on certain areas of your body that you think need more attention. Whether it is a bad back or tense shoulders, the more they know the more they can help. Free your Mind and Relax: This may be hard, but during your session try to release all thoughts and worries. In the beginning of your massage perform a deep breathing exercise releasing all the negativity out of your mind. While doing this also relax. Try not to tense up while your therapist is performing. This makes it much harder for them to get the job done. Breathe Through the Pain: While your therapist is working on a tense area of your body be sure to breathe through the pain and to not hold in your breath. Holding your breath in allows the tense area to become more tighten than it was before. […]

Give Yourself a Glow: 7 Ways to Healthier Skin

Having flawless skin is not as hard as you think, here are seven ways you can have that beautiful radiant skin in no time. Don’t Sleep with Make-Up On You would think that this common sense but you would not believe how many women forget that sleeping with make-up on is a big no-no. Leaving make-up on while you sleep does not allow your pores to breathe. From foundation to simple eyeliner, leaving it on overnight can cause bad acne or a morning of blackhead madness. Using make-up remover each night before hitting the sheets is a key to waking up to beautiful radiant skin each morning, but make sure your remover does not clog your skin as well. Apply Sunscreen Daily Summertime or not, applying sunscreen every day is very important. Every time we leave our homes we are exposed to the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, causing long term damage to our skin such as wrinkles and age spots. Eat Healthy It’s true, you are what you eat and what you have on your plate at night will show up on your face in the morning so be wise. Try to avoid all sweets and fried foods and […]
