Earth Day 2016 happens this Friday April 22. It is a world wide movement to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Just as the earth needs protection from the environment so does your skin!
Exhale offers environmentally-friendly facials to help reduce the effects pollution and the sun may have on your skin. Did you know our skin is the perfect target for pollution because it easily absorbs environmental pollutants? We are exposed day after day to all manner of environmental pollutants from smoke to chemicals, so it’s very important to protect it and cleaning and moisturizing your face is one of the best ways to do that.
I tried the True Facial as per the website: ” Tried and true! A thorough cleansing and application of a custom enzyme exfoliation perfectly preps the skin for complexion detox. Careful extractions follow — made as painless as possible by our skilled estheticians — and then a soothing mask, selected specifically for your skin type is applied. Your face will feel refreshed and restored, and you’ll feel ready to face the day. It’s “truly” amazing!” Take advantage of their special offer to try a facial plus massage for just $199.00 !
My facial experience was beyond amazing thanks to esthetician, Audrey Thorne who works at the Miami/South Beach location. I visited an Exhale in Atlanta,GA earlier this year (read here) as I do enjoy the variety of classes and quality services offered but never had a facial. I thought Audrey provided an in-depth cleaning as well as gave valuable customized information about how to care for my skin. Products recommended for me and available for sale at Exhale were the Warm Honey Cleanser , Pro Heal Serum and SPF 30 .
Prior to my facial, I enjoyed a 9am meditation class on the rooftop, also known as the exhale zen terrace, of the oceanfront St. Moritz building of Loews Miami Beach Hotel. Alessandra Cornet, Founder of Hardcore Meditation, guided us thru an analytical meditation 30 minute class to benefit the mind and body! She also provided us with handouts full of information about meditation techniques. Meditation simply involves a process of transforming yourself and your thoughts. The focus of the class is to release tensions and set your intentions, deepen the breath, increase concentration, relax and rejuvenate the soul. Anyone can benefit from meditation because it is an energy-saving practice in which you can take a moment to center yourself while connecting with the universe.
I felt totally relaxed after my meditation class and facial at Exhale and recommend anyone visiting or local to visit this spa. If you are in Miami this Friday April 22, set your intentions at this Exhale Earth Day event
