Regular facials do wonders for your skin, but what you do at home is equally as important!

Here is a basic routine for dry or sensitive skin:
  • Use an emulsifying cleanser for dry or sensitive skin – my Goddess Bliss Moisture Plus Cleansing Milk is a good choice
  • Follow your skin cleansing with a hydrating toner like my Moisture Plus Toner
  • To give your skin an intensive boost, apply a serum to address your specific skin concerns
  • Follow your toner and/or serum with a nourishing moisturizer like my Evening Primrose Crème
  • To support the more sensitive skin around the eyes, apply a soothing moisture-rich formula like my Daily Moisture Eye Crème
  • During the day, applying sunscreen is an important step to protect us from harmful rays

On a weekly basis, your skin will enjoy a moisturizing mask for the best results.

Tips for dry or sensitive skin:
  • Wash face with warm or tepid water, never hot.
  • If flushing or redness is a problem, avoid spicy foods as they may exacerbate this condition.
  • Always use toner after cleansing, as mineral deposits from hard water can irritate and dehydrate skin.
  • When using a mechanical exfoliant, only briefly massage the inner cheeks, near the nose, which can easily be overstimulated.
  • Jojoba oil is highly stable and good for the face, even on individuals who are oil sensitive or prone to acne. It is very similar in composition to human sebum. This enables it to penetrate and emulsify thick, waxy buildup in pores, helping relieve congestion.
  • Invest in a filter for your shower head to further reduce chemical irritants in water.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine, which have a diuretic effect that causes skin cells to lose fluids and essential minerals.
Take Your Facial Care to the Next Level

Our skin reacts to many things, including the weather. Now that the days are getting cooler, why not give yourself a rejuvenating facial at home? Come in and talk to me for product recommendations!

Finally, remember that each day we have a wonderful opportunity for self-care when we’re standing in front of the bathroom mirror! It’s a natural time for positive affirmations: I am beautiful, I am doing the best that I can, I am thankful that I can take care of myself. Nourish your body and soul!

avocado-cream-lisaThis month at my spa, I am using my own fresh avocado and mango cream as a part of my Avocado Mango Facials. I have handpicked my recipe specifically to give your skin the most benefit and I am so excited to share my creation with you. Get in touch to book a treatment (see details in my latest newsletter).

I have created a whipped moisturizer with an avocado base. It absorbs quickly, yet its richness adds suppleness and vibrancy to your skin. I also added mango to this cream. Mango is naturally rich in vitamin C, which has amazing cell regenerating properties and helps smooth out your skin and even out your skin tone. Together, avocado and mango will restore elasticity to the skin and leave it feeling soft and refreshed with a beautiful glow.

This month my focus is self-care for your face. Taking time to properly cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin is vital to your self-care. Be the face of a woman who values herself and who makes time to take care of her skin. The face of a woman who loves herself is one that glows with radiance and vitality because she cares for her skin every day and nurtures her soul!

I created Goddess Bliss Skincare to nourish your skin to its full radiance. Get that glow with natural and holistically formulated products.

Package of the season

The gift of self-care

I highly recommend trying the Indian Head Massage after a stressful day or week. I arrived after a stressful day my mind was full of busyness and I felt exhausted, after my Indian Head massage treatment I felt relaxed and revitalized, my mind also felt calm, clear and peaceful, it was like my stress just melted away, I will definitely be back for this treatment.

After many treatments and time with Lisa over the past 25 years, I have come to appreciate her spirit, her warmth, and to trust her and her spa as a safe and inspiring center. Recently Lisa helped me see that a facial was nourishment for the skin and also a relaxing massage treatment for healthy radiant glowing skin.

Margaret Litch

I have been a client of Lisa’s since I was 12 years old. I feel very comfortable at her spa and trust her with my skincare spa services. Being a University student and on a budget I tend to use drug store products on my skin. I decided to invest in Goddess Bliss skincare; it’s been 3 months now. I have noticed many changes and benefits such as my skin feels more balanced, healthy, my dryness has diminished, my skin’s tone is more even I wear less make-up because my skin feels radiant. I now see the value of investing in quality skin care; I am committed to my new regime and love it.  Thank you Lisa for your expertise and creating such an awesome skincare line!

Katie Davidson

Coming to Lisa for the past 8 years is an important part of my self-care, I look forward to seeing Lisa monthly as her waxing is the most gentle I have experienced. This is more than getting a service it’s become a friendship, someone I trust to share on a personal level.  Her passion for personal growth has also inspired me to be part of her Sacred Circles for women.  I’ve enjoyed this aspect of self-discovery and taking it to a deeper level in a safe setting with other likeminded women. I love taking time to awaken and acknowledge my inner Goddess strengths.

Hannah Ruller

Being in my 50’s I noticed my skin starting to sag so it was now or never to get on this. I contacted Lisa ready to take better care of my skin and also make time for just me to receive some nurturing. Within a week after having my facial treatment and using Goddess Bliss skincare, I noticed big changes. It has been almost a year now, my skin lines have softened my tonicity has improved, my skin feels radiant and alive. Regular monthly massage and facial treatments are a big part of my self-care now, I feel fantastic, I am worth it!  Thank you Lisa!

Shari Molchan

I love Lisa's monthly circle so much that it has become an essential part of my life - it is a ritual of sensual experience that encompasses aroma, words, song, meditation, movement, and self-expression. Lisa creates an atmosphere of magical beauty and peace that permeates her home; walking into her space is like stepping into a different dimension that we long for in our everyday lives. The sharing and connectedness amongst the group grows deeper with each circle and I leave feeling renewed and refreshed with a sense of joy and peace that filters into all aspects of my being. It grounds me back to my self and the core of goddess magic that resides within all of us but is forgotten in the daily stresses of living. I'm so grateful that I have this unique and beautiful experience to look forward to every month!
