Why You Need A Facial Oil

Facial Oils are making a huge comeback! For years, people have believed oils cause acne but the truth is, oils are good for all skin types!

Oils have come a long way! Dating back to Ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece, they were used back then to keep skin soft and supple. Facial Oils complement the skin’s natural oil production while providing hydration and nutrients.

The benefits of Facial Oils go on and on! They create a protective barrier that locks moisture in! In turn it visibly plumps the skin, targets fine lines and wrinkles and relieves dryness.

Facials Oils are made to target dehydration and dryness. They can also address skin concerns like acne and dull skin. Eminence’s Facial Recovery Oil does just that! We call it gold in a bottle! The combination of ylang ylang, sage leaf and olive oil calm the skin while brightening and moisturizing!

You can incorporate a facial oil in any skin care routine by using a few drops before or after your moisturizer application.

You can purchase Eminence Facial Recovery Oil on our website or in store at Calm Spa and Salon in Pleasant Grove.

5 Reasons Why Spa Facials Are the Ultimate Pampering for Your Skin

Spa facials are a great way to take care of your skin and give it the pampering it deserves! Why are spa facials great for your skin? See this list below to find out!

Customized treatments: At a spa, (Calm Spa in particular) facials are tailored to your specific skin type and concerns. This means that your esthetician will choose the right products and techniques to address your individual needs, whether it’s treating acne, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, or improving overall skin tone and texture.

Deep cleaning: One of the key benefits of a spa facial is the deep cleaning it provides. The esthetician uses specialized tools and techniques to remove impurities and dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, leaving it clean, refreshed, and glowing.

Relaxation: Getting a facial at a spa is a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. The soothing atmosphere, calming music, and skilled hands of an esthetician all contribute to a feeling of relaxation and well-being. This relaxation can help to reduce stress, which can in turn benefit the health of your skin.

Product knowledge: All Estheticians at Calm spa and salon are trained in the latest skin care products and ingredients, and can recommend the right products for your skin type and concerns. They can also teach you how to properly use these products at home to maintain the benefits of your facial.

Overall skin health: Regular facials can improve the overall health of your skin by removing impurities and dead skin cells, promoting cell turnover, and providing deep hydration. This can result in a more radiant, youthful, and healthy-looking complexion.

In conclusion, spa facials are a great way to take care of your skin, give it the attention and pampering it deserves and are a worthwhile investment in your skin’s health and appearance.

How to Prepare for Your Eyelash Extension Appointment

It’s important to prepare for your eyelash extension appointment to ensure that the process goes smoothly and that you end up with the beautiful, full lashes that you want. Here are a few things that you should do before your appointment:

Avoid using any oil-based products around your eyes, including makeup remover and moisturizer. Oil can break down the adhesive used to apply the lashes, causing them to fall out prematurely.

If you have sensitive eyes or allergies, let your lash technician know beforehand. They may recommend using a different adhesive or applying a patch test to ensure that you don’t have a reaction.

Arrive at your appointment with clean, dry lashes. If you wash your face before your appointment, make sure to pat your lashes dry before leaving the house.

Overall, the key to a successful eyelash extension appointment is preparation. By taking the time to follow these steps, you can ensure that your lashes turn out exactly how you want them.

🤫 Want to know a SECRET?


One of our very own Calm Spa and Salon stylists, Alyssa, has been so diligent in her home care the last few months. She has been experiencing redness in her cheek area. After our Master Estheticians consulted with her, they prescribed Jan Marini RosaLieve. She has been very diligent for two months, using it consistently. Look at these results! This is the only product she has been using. 

Do you experience redness? Schedule a skin consultation with one of our Master Estheticians at Calm here in Pleasant Grove to see if RosaLieve would be good for you! 


Let’s talk about exfoliation of the skin. Did you know there are two types of exfoliants? Physical exfoliants and chemical exfoliants. As we age our cell turn over rate slows down drastically making our skin not feel and look smooth. In turn, we should be exfoliating 2 to 3 times a week to help slough off dead skin. Physical exfoliants are very popular for at home use. Chemical exfoliants are usually done by a professional in a spa setting. Here at Calm Spa and Salon, we offer several professional chemical and physical exfoliation treatments. For at home use, we recommend Eminence Organics Pear and Poppy Seed Microderm Polisher. It’s an aggressive physical exfoliant. The ground up walnut and poppy seeds polish the skin giving a smooth texture and the apricot oil leaves a glow you cant resist.  This is a great one for all you with oily skin! It is our Product of the Month giving you 20% off all January 2019. ($10 savings.)

On a daily basis, I have clients come in for a Brazilian wax and some of the first words that come out of their mouths are, “I read online.” or “my friend tried waxing herself and the wax got stuck and wouldn’t come off.” When it comes to brazilian waxing that last thing you want to do is go off someone who had a bad experience. Waxing does NOT have to be scary. It is a very quick service. On average I do 15-20 Brazilians daily taking no longer then 10 minutes each one. It is very rare that something goes wrong. If it does, it’s usually because I was not informed of a medication the client is taking.

A few helpful tips when preparing for a wax:

  1. Always inform the technician what medications you are taking and if you are allergic to anything. (they should ask)
  2. Take ibuprofen 30 minutes prior to help with pain.
  3. Exfoliate the skin 24 hours prior to the wax to prep the skin for waxing.
  4. Make sure your hair is at least 1/4 inch long or 2 weeks of hair growth.

If you do all of these things, your wax will go a lot smoother. It is very important to find a waxing technician that is experienced and knows what they are doing. Ask around, read reviews, and ask how long the technician takes. Time is a big factor. If it takes over 25 minutes, the technician probably is not as experienced as others. To get a brazilian wax under the age of 18, it’s a requirement to have a parent come in and sign a waiver.

After the wax, you can expect a little redness, and tenderness. Don’t worry! This goes away quickly. Waxing is great for so many reasons. You don’t have to worry about the red painful bumps from shaving, your hair thins out over time, you don’t get itchy like you do with shaving, and it’s a quick service that you only have to do every 4 to 6 weeks.

Jessica Powell owns Calm Spa and Salon in Pleasant Grove. Located in Utah County.  She specializes in the Brazilian wax and is known for the 10 minute Brazilian. You can schedule your next appointment with her or our other brazilian wax professionals at calmspaandsalon.com
