It can be hard to take care of your skin in today’s busy world. But Skin Savvy Spa wants to help make it easier. Their facials range from half hour to hour and a half long treatment sessions that help to revitalize the skin while providing relaxation for the body and mind. In particular the hydrating facial is one that goes beyond regular skin care.
This facial is designed uniquely for individual skin types. It provides light extractions, exfoliation, treatment mask, deep cleansing, steaming, and skin analysis. During the facial a light massage is given to the chest, shoulders, arms, hands, and upper back. The environment is soothing and perfect for an end of the work day stress reliever. After the treatment, the skin is revealed to be clearer from blemishes, glowing, and silky smooth to the touch.
Skin Savvy Spa is a newcomer to the Dupont Circle area moving into their location only last year. However, co-owner Vicky Valera says the spa has been in business for over ten years. Valera joined forces with co-owner Tonia Briscoe to go into business with Skin Savvy. Valera and Briscoe, along with fellow staff members Alexis Carter, nail specialist, and Aisha Messac, esthetician, all came together and from there Skin Savvy’s staff was able to grow.
Messac, who has seven years of esthetician experience, was the esthetician who gave the hydrating facial to this writer. She said that the most common skin mistake people make is over exfoliation. “A lot of people are doing their own research and they’re using all these products when they don’t need them. A lot of people misinterpret what their skin type is to begin with,” she said. “When you over exfoliate you’re damaging your skin. Your skin is actually trying to fix itself and then starts to break out and hyper pigment.”
Tips like these are part of what make Skin Savvy Spa not your average spa.
‘We are a very caring bunch. We’re all in it for the love of the industry versus money. We take more time than what is on the schedule because we’re so dedicated to what we do,” said Messac.
The passion for a client’s satisfaction is Skin Savvy Spa’s top priority.
“From our years of experience we are very knowledgeable. We love what we do and that’s a thing a lot of technicians don’t have is love for this industry. We really care about our clients and each other,” said Valera.
A calming atmosphere, caring staff, and fantastic skin treatments make Skin Savvy Spa the perfect choice for indulging your skin in the ultimate treat!
