If there’s one thing I love (besides my amazing husband and beautiful children), it’s being pampered. Every woman out there, no matter how old, loves a spa day. It is one of the few times, as a mother, you can sit back and let someone else do the work.
Earlier today I went to my favorite little spa house in Connecticut for a Yon-Ka “Hydralessence Visage” treatment.
I am a huge fan of Yon-Ka (both their services and the products they make). Yes, they are expensive but for the price you pay, you get back 100x more in your skin and wellbeing.
I had my first experience with Yon-Ka when I was in Paris, France on my honeymoon, years ago. One of our relatives got me a full day at a luxury spa. Just thinking about that day makes me melt. It was one of the most relaxing, beautiful experiences of my life. From the sound of the water coming from the fresh well outside, to the aromatherapy and essential oils they used – I was hooked. It wasn’t until I could find an english translator to help me figure out the products used that I realized who Yon-Ka is.
Apparently, they are part luxury skin care and part aromatherapy but there is something they use in their ingredients that truly invigorates all of your senses. The only thing I can compare my treatments to would be the feeling of relaxation and freshness that you get on a warm spring day, with no clouds in the sky. The sun lightly grazing your face. The wind blowing the beautiful smell of flowers into your nose… You just feel at peace.
Okay, so back to my treatment today!
Like I said earlier, I received the Hydralessence Visage treatment. This is the one I normally go with because I have very dry skin. My dry skin always acts up when the weather changes rapidly from warm to cold (like in the Fall). This treatment is absolutely perfect for smoothing out fine lines caused by dry skin too.
It is a sixty minute experience that consists of 7 stages. I wish I knew exactly what my esthetician was doing, but to be honest, I usually am somewhere in a dream state within the first five minutes.
If your esthetician or local spa offers Yon-Ka treatments (they are exclusive to certain spas), definitely treat yourself and book an experience! You will not regret it…
