Christina’s Cabinet: SHINE With Illuminators

Experts say, and I agree, “The secret to younger looking skin is all in the illuminators and bronzers.” These are great product tools for those who prefer not to wear makeup. Illuminate your best features, add dimension to your face, and feed your healthy, radiant glow. It’s our sweet secret to appearing fresh and dewy, even in the driest of seasons. My picks for the perfect holiday glow:

Ilia Illuminators’ organic ingredients combine healing Rose Hip Oil to its blend. Christina’s favorite is “Polka Dots and Moonbeams.”

Maya Chia Illuminating Serum offers the world’s most nutrient-rich botanical treat in a super lightweight formula that comes in 3 different hues.

Kindred Bâton de Soleil blends contain Nano zinc to create a chemical-free sun barrier. These illuminators are offered in a cool-toned pink, pearl, warm, golden, champagne, silvery Moonbeam and a bronze-golden glow. They are spectacular for adding dimension to cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of nose, or anywhere else.

Our newest add-on to the menu of options for Sweet 185’s Signature Organic Facial is the Radiant C. From an exfoliating bomb of Vitamin C to remove dry, dead, surface skin cells to an illuminating gel mask, which combines high-performance kakadu plum and sodium hyaluronate to calm, brighten and hydrate the skin, this is an add-on to any facial service that will leave you feeling – and looking – oh-so-radiant.

A Pumpkin Seed and Oil-Based Body Wrap with
Holistic Massage and Rejuvenating 30-minute Facial

Pumpkins aren’t just great for carving or baking; they are a intensely rich source of potassium, zinc, alpha hydroxy acids, enzymes and free radical-busting antioxidants like beta carotene and Vitamins C and E. Also, organic pumpkin seed oil and fatty acids provide a nourishing, good-enough-to-eat treat for your skin. If you twice-baked yourself in the sun, dabbled in a few too many adult beverages or swam in a lot of chlorine this summer, or feeling on the dry side this fall, this is the treatment for you!

Your skin is warmed and stimulated with a specialized naked dry brush, followed by a moist, whole-body compress, combined with an application of soothing pumpkin oil. Your therapist then re-wraps you to make sure the nutrients are completely infused into your skin.

But you are only halfway there.

While you are cocooned in your wrap, your therapist will begin your facial. Utilizing the pumpkin extracts, your therapist exfoliates, detoxifies and nourishes your face. This treatment is a delectable, whole body experience, leaving you protected for the winter months ahead, from your nose to your toes!
