One way to help take care of your skin as the seasons change is with a facial. This is a deep cleaning, exfoliating, nourishing and hydrating facial treatment. There are also specific facials for healing acne scars, stress relief, hyper pigmentation and other conditions. A skin analysis will be preformed and your basic skin type and skin conditions will be determined. The correct products and best treatments for your skin will then be suggested. Give your face the love it deserves with a facial at any of these great Connecticut spas.
