Haven Spa’s Winter Survival Guide

Haven_Winter18_WinterSurvivalGuide
Now that we’re in the thick of winter, freezing temperatures and dry air wreak havoc on our skin and bodies causing dry skin, chapped lips and cracked hands and feet.  Add seasonal stress to the bone-chilling weather, and you’ve got the perfect reason for a spa day! Whether it’s achy muscles, dry skin or winter blues, Haven Spa can offer a solution to all your winter woes.

BODY CARE

When you’re not able to hop on a plane and escape to a warm destination, why not come to Haven for a quick getaway? Let one of our Body Rituals whisk you away to a place of warmth and relaxation. All of our rituals include: a rich, exfoliating scrub to slough away dry skin; an aromatherapy-infused steam shower to hydrate, cleanse and relieve those clogged sinuses; and a relaxing massage which incorporates an enriching and moisturizing body cream, leaving your skin soft, smooth and hydrated. You’ll leave feeling as if you just spent a week away at an island oasis.


HAND, FEET & NAIL CARE

It is no secret the harsh effects that the cold weather can have on your skin, but the winter months can also wreak havoc on your hands and nails as well. It’s important to adjust both your skin and nail care for the changing seasons. A spa manicure and pedicure at Haven Spa is the perfect solution to keeping your fingers and toes looking healthy throughout the winter months. By adding a warm paraffin dip to your service, you can keep them looking as radiant as they do during the summer months. Paraffin moisturizes dry and brittle nails, soothes tired hands and feet, and protects your skin from the harsh elements of the winter months.

SKIN CARE

This winter restore your skin’s youthful vitality. Now is the ideal time to make a deep difference in your skin’s appearance. Your body naturally enters into its restorative stage during winter, so why not make the most of it with a Revitalizing Anti-Aging Facial? In three simple steps you can brighten dull lifeless skin, tighten pores and refresh your skin to obtain that youthful glow. Commit to the difference you are looking for today — by spring you will be a New You!

AT-HOME CARE

Lastly, a few at-home tips to remember to help keep your skin and body in tip-top shape during the winter months:

  • Drink plenty of water. Even though you may not feel thirsty, it’s especially important to stay hydrated during the dry winter months. Your skin will thank you for it.
  • Take a nice warm shower in the morning. Make sure not to make the water too hot or else the water will dry out your skin instead of hydrating it.
  • Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Immediately after drying off from your shower, apply a moisturizer to your face and body while the pores of your skin are still open. This allows the moisturizer to penetrate much more deeply into your skin.
  • Exfoliate. Do this for your face and body at least two times a week to get rid of all the dead skin cells. This will allow the skin to absorb your moisturizer more efficiently. Dry brushing before your shower is also a nice way to exfoliate and it gets your lymphatic system moving.
  • Soothe those chapped lips by moisturizing with a lip balm – one that contains shea helps soothe chapped lips and prevents further chapping. Use your lip balm throughout the day and be sure to apply it before you go out into the cold.
  • Protect your hangs. Avoid rough red hands and protect them from the cold by frequently using a good hand moisturizer throughout the day and wearing mittens or gloves outdoors.
  • Get plenty of restful sleep. With a rested mind and body, you’ll be ready to face those long, cold winter days.

 

4 Ways to Get Ready for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to do something a little different, to go the extra mile, to put in a bit of effort — for your partner and for yourself. Remember when you first started dating: the excitement, the surprises? You would both spend time primping and prepping before a date to be sure you were looking good, smelling sweet, and feeling great! Recapture some of that magic by treating this February 14th like you did when you first got together…



Try a New Scent
Our sense of smell is incredibly powerful, evoking positive emotions and fond memories. New fragrances are also an easy way to introduce novelty into long-term relationships. You could try Argan Dry Oil Body Mist in Sweet Orange by Pre de Provence, a Cedar Leaf & Lavender candle by Nest, or a Gardneia Diffuser by Illume, all of which we carry.


Soften Up Your Skin
The winter cold and the march of time can wreak havoc on your skin. Reveal a more youthful glow with a moisturizing body treatment or a rejuvenating facial. Our Tone & Glow package, with the power of guava fruit and vitamin C, is an all-over solution that will leave your face and body feeling and looking years younger.


Update Your Makeup Bag
If you’ve been wearing the same lip color for the past decade, it’s time to try something new and fresh, like “Candied Rose” or “Pink Lady” — both are Puregloss lip glosses by Jane Iredale, available in our boutique. Or brighten up your cheeks and give them some definition with her new Contour Kits.


Add a Little Sparkle
New dangly earrings can bring out the twinkle in your eyes. A new bangle can dress up an outfit. A few decorative pieces can make the ordinary a little more extraordinary. And anything like this can make a lovely gift. “Jewelry,” says Julie Vos, the designer we carry in our boutique, “is the most romantic thing you could set out to create.”

Wishing you and yours the happiest of Valentine’s Days!

Love,
Haven Spa

4 Great Reasons to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Haven_Valentines18_FBcover
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching!

You may be busy. It may feel like a corporate holiday. And you two may have been together for ages. But celebrating February 14th is still important. Here are four big reasons why:

1. A chance to honor your partner.
Putting in a little effort to express your love and appreciation for your partner will never be wasted. Everyone wants to feel seen and admired. Whether it’s a gift certificate for a treatment you know they enjoy or a love note with a little high-end chocolate, give something thoughtful to let them know they’re always on your mind.

2. A chance to celebrate your relationship.
You are a team, a unified force — it’s you two against the world! Valentine’s Day gives you as a couple a reason to reflect on your romantic past and dream about your future together.

3. An opportunity to do something new & novel.
Valentine’s Day encourages you to step out of old habits and try on something new. Studies show doing so together can reignite old sparks. Whether it’s a ballroom dancing lesson, a canvases-&-cocktails class, getting massages together, or just a new restaurant in town, shake up the routine.

4. Everyone else is doing it!
Of course that doesn’t always make something right. But in this case, why be the party pooper? Put another way: Your partner will never fault you for doing something nice for them on Valentine’s Day, but they might fault you for never doing anything.

Haven Spa has everything to make this Valentine’s Day special!

From luxury spa packages to on-trend jewelry to little luxury treats. Give us a call or stop by our boutique — we’ll help you find the perfect something for the one you love.
