Consistently Go Below the Surface

we recognize the importance of a great skincare routine. But
sometimes we need to remind our spa clients (and students) that even the most innovative treatments
and therapies are no substitute for proper skincare on a daily basis. As amazing as a HydraFacial or other
treatment may make skin look, optimal results are dependent on doing the little things (cleanse, tone,
moisturize) consistently.
A consistent skincare regimen is designed to prevent issues from developing "below the surface." And
it turns out that what is good for our skin is also good for our schools. Consistent attention to details
can keep our skin glowing and our
school growing!
