Refresh and Renew: Skin Regimen and Glen Ivy #fastlivingslowagaing

You all know that I love Glen Ivy Hot Springs. It is the perfect place to refresh and recharge and "treat yo' self". I've started to realize how important self-care is to our overall health and since my return to Glen Ivy back in November, I've begun making self-care a priority in my daily life. It's not easy! I love taking care of and serving others and it brings me a lot of joy. However, I am realizing that if I don't care for myself, I'm less effective in all other areas of my life.

On my most recent visit to Glen Ivy Hot Springs I had the opportunity to listen to Dr. Claudia Aguirre, in connection with Comfort Zone Skin Care, share with us about stress, aging, skin care, health and longevity. She is neuroscientist and skin care expert and she shared with us how our skin is a mirror or window of our mental well being and physical state. So we need to take care of all aspects of our self, manage stress, and get more sleep!!

The Skin Regimen line of skin care, created by Comfort Zone, is clinically proven to reduce the effects of stress and lifestyle aging on both skin and mind. Since our lifestyle affects the speed of our skin and mind aging, Skin Regimen formulas target the most common stress-related signs to restore the optimal conditions for healthier, glowing skin.

Glen Ivy Hot Springs uses the Skin Regimen line in their Longevity Solution Facial and it is AMAZING! This revolutionary treatment rejuvenates the revitalizes the skin with a gentle lactic acid peel along with specialized deep and focused massage techniques. The facial softens wrinkles, plumps your complexion, and your skin feels vibrant and energized.

This was my first facial EVER and I didn't know what to expect. My esthetician explained to me what she would be doing during the facial and highlighted all the benefits the facial would offer to my skin. It was AMAZING! and I enjoyed every minute of it. She used the Skin Regimen line of products and I loved the natural ingredients and the aromas each product offers. She also asked if I had any skin care concerns and offered advice and products that could help with my issues.

The Microalgae Essence was one of the products used during the facial and it smells so good!! I use it on a daily basis now and it helps to keep my skin balanced with optimal hydration.

She also suggested that I add the Retinal Booster to my weekly skin care routine. She said it would help with the monthly breakouts on my chin. She recommended that I used 2-3 times per week for a an intensive renewing action.

My mom has always told me that the feet are a gateway to the rest of the body and the Sole Focus Massage at Glen Ivy focuses on the idea that full body relaxation can be achieved by focusing on the feet. For a full 50 minutes the massage therapist uses Zone Therapy and Skin Regimen lotions and oils to improve circulation, calm the mind, and relieve tension throughout the entire body.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Sole Focus Massage. I've had reflexology massages before, but this was so much more! I have chronic pain in my feet because of plantar fasciitis and the Sole Focus Massage not only helped my feet to feel awesome, but the rest of me felt pampered and relaxed too. I highly recommend it - especially if a full body massage isn't your thing. With the Sole Focus Massage you get all the benefits of massage and you get to keep your clothes on!

Come for the Longevity Facial or Sole Focus Massage and stay for a full day of relaxation. You'll want to make sure you have enough time in your day to receive your special body and/or facial treatments and be able to enjoy Glen Ivy's 19 different pools, Club Mud, steam rooms and outdoor saunas. You won't regret treating yourself to a full day at Glen Ivy Hot Springs!
