It is no secret that SoCal has a dry climate. Going from the dry, sunny climate of San Diego to the cold, dry winter in Connecticut has caused my skin to go haywire. Of course all of the sweat my body produces on the daily has not helped my skin at all either. Upon my return to CT, I have been battling eczema, skin so dry it has been peeling and of course clogged pores and blackheads. Welcome home right??
Last week I visited my friends at Two Spa Girls Beauty Lounge in North Haven, CT to get my usual Organic Spray Tan when Owner and Beauty Guru, Andrea told me about her latest service: HydraFacial MD. I am usually very simplistic when it comes to my skin routine. In fact, recently it has been non-existent. Did you know that your skin is the largest organ of the human body?? With that being said, I decided it was time to start taking more care of it. Although I have come a long way since spending days in tanning beds during my teen years, I knew I was still not doing enough for my skin and thankfully Andrea came to the rescue.
So I’m sure you’re wondering what exactly IS a HydraFacial? The HydraFacial is a moisturizing treatment that removes dead skin cells, extracts impurities while then cleansing and hydrating the new skin. Free radicals like stress, pollution, toxins and obviously sunlight damage our skin every single time we are exposed to them…which unless you never step outside of your house is daily. This treatment replenishes your skin with anti-oxidants through the latest technology called Vortex-Fusion. Since I am so involved in living a healthy lifestyle as well as science-based research, I realized how much the HydraFacial aligned with what I preach.
I arrived at my appointment beyond excited to see the effects of this treatment. Andrea had me lay down in a quiet room and got to work. This treatment is recommended monthly and can help pretty much every skin type including sun damage, acne, hyperpigmentation as well as banishing those fine lines and wrinkles! In fact, I went into my appointment with a pimple trapped underneath my skin (you know those huge, painful ones that always come at the worst times?!) yet when I stepped out the door at the end of the treatment it not only decreased in size and redness but a day later is completely gone. The whole process is about 30 minutes, pain-free and very relaxing. I could actually FEEL the gunk and dirt being sucked out of my skin.
The procedure was over before I knew it and my skin felt so full, refreshed and no longer as dry as the Mojave Desert! Here is a Before/After comparison I took 30 minutes before, and 30 minutes after the Hydrafacial. Notice how dull and dry my skin looks before (and the redness from that pesky pimple!) compared to the lively, bright skin I was happy to see after!
Today, the day after, I woke up to the clearest, vibrant skin I have ever seen on my face. It is as soft as silk, and now that Andrea has taught me a proper skin care routine I don’t have to deal with dry, acne prone skin again.

This is definitely going to be my first of many Hydrafacials as I have vowed to start taking better care of my skin. If you have any questions regarding this treatment don’t hesitate to email me or contact Andrea Blair for more information.
Remember, you only get ONE body- treat it well!
