A guest post from Los Angeles makeup artist Val Harvey.
After a long, stressful week there is no greater feeling than checking my worries at the door. But like the rest of the world, finding a way to shut it off at the end of the day can be a real challenge. Such was the case last week, so I decided I needed an intervention.
Motykie Med Spa has always been a sanctuary in the endless desert of fast paced life, so I made an appointment to have their renowned Signature Facial. As if I needed another reason to be impressed, an added treat to the anticipated relaxation was walking into the tranquil setting of the Med Spa’s newly renovated space for spa clientele. I was received warmly by the super friendly receptionist who introduced me to my lovely aesthetician.
Having My Facial
After cozying up in the room the pampering commenced. The thoughtfulness that went into every detail of this facial was so impressive. Every element felt especially designed for my delight, from the cleansing sponges specifically designed to be gentle on the skin, right down to the way my aesthetician touched my skin with purpose while performing extractions, applying my peel and massaging my neck, shoulders and feet.
During my facial Stephanie found that my current skincare routine was stripping my skin of necessary moisture, leaving behind the perfect environment for congested pores to thrive. Her knowledge and practical recommendations for maintaining balanced, healthy skin really opened my eyes to a new approach to my own regime. The radiant, dewy look of my complexion after my Signature Facial speaks volumes to how amazing it truly is.
Was It a Dream?
I must admit, I was so relaxed I drifted into a peaceful slumber during my facial. When I was gently awoken, I was a little sad my pampering session was done. I could have stayed all day, but it’s a great excuse to come back for another treatment. For now, I’ll count this as another amazing experience in the hands of my friends at Motykie Med Spa.
