Anne’s has altered some of the existing facials to include the new Skin Nourishment products. Working with one of Canada’s most accomplished herbalists and a small Canadian manufacturer in Waterloo, Ontario, the team at Ste. Anne’s Spa was able to produce a holistically-based skin-care line that focuses on natural, indigenous ingredients and botanicals, free from any synthetics. Manufactured in small quantities to ensure all products are fresh, Ste. Anne’s Skin Nourishment is a great way to continue your spa experience in the comfort of your own home. Ste. Anne's Signature Facial begins with a relaxing foot bath and sea salt scrub. Your therapist will discuss the steps of the facial, along with any benefits and concerns that you may have. You will also experience a sensory journey to choose body blends or essential oils that will be incorporated into your treatment. Your facial starts with a cleansing and toning of the skin to remove any make-up, oils or debris. After your skin is cleansed and the toner is absorbing, your therapist will perform a relaxing scalp massage. Gommage, a type of gentle, exfoliating peel, made from all-natural fruit acids, bilberry and sugarcane will be applied. While the gommage sets on the skin, you will receive a hand and arm massage using Ste. Anne’s Hand & Body Deep Hydration. This massage will relieve any tension or strain and moisturize dry skin. The gommage is then removed with a gentle rubbing motion and it is this action that picks up all the dead skin cells removing them from the surface of the skin. By removing the dead skin, the new skin cells can rise to the surface, bringing radiance to your complexion. After any excess peel is eliminated with a soothing warm towel, a facial massage will be performed using your chosen body blend to enhance the overall sensory experience of your treatment. A mask is then applied that is appropriate for your skin type. The Skin Nourishment Mineral Masks use powdered ingredients such as Powdered Rose Petals, Calendula Flower Powder, Powdered Cucumber and Powdered Lavender. The minerals and botanicals make up three masks designed for dry, irritated, and acne-prone skin. Accompanying these masks is a hydrating base mask which is mixed together to your desired consistency. Once the mask is applied, a foot and leg massage begins using Ste. Anne’s Skin Nourishment Foot Cream. This massage will relax tired feet and legs and leave dry skin extremely moisturized. After your massage is complete, your therapist will remove the mask with another warm towel, leaving your skin ready for the final three products. Toner is applied to ensure all mask residue is removed and that the pH balance of the skin is restored. A Skin Nourishment Serum is next and there are three to choose from. The serums correspond to the three Mineral Masks for different skin concerns but can be used in conjunction with any Skin Nourishment Mineral Mask. Finally, a moisturizer is applied to keep the skin supple and hydrated, either the Day Cream or Firming Face Cream can be used. Your facial is now complete and at this point your therapist will step out of the room to let you redress. Ste. Anne’s Signature Facial is so much more than a facial. It relaxes body, mind and spirit in the truest sense. Your skin is rejuvenated, your body is recharged and you emerge from the treatment feeling invigorated. Come to Ste. Anne’s and try this new Signature Facial. You’ll be glad you did! By Vanessa Shorey, BA, Esthetician Vanessa Shorey began practicing as an Esthetician at Ste. Anne’s Spa in 2007.
