It’s been one week since Lauren Streeter looked at me.
Cocked her head to the side and said, “You’re skin’s dry.”
Five (plus two) days since she educated me.
I got a four layer facial made from seaweed.
Yes, the song is lame but, it’s all completely true. Last week I visited Three-13 Salon, Spa & Boutique in Marietta, Georgia to get a facial from Repêchage National Corporate Educator, Lauren Streeter. When she’s not giving me a Four-Layer Facial, Lauren teaches professionals all over the world in the methods and natural skin care treatments around the world and in over 200 schools.
The Four-Layer Facial is meant to rejuvenate and moisturize skin which is perfect for leaving the dryness of winter behind for once and for all.
- Layer one consists of a seaweed filtrate, a concentration of freshly-harvested seaweed. According to Repêchage it, “softens lines, adds moisture and helps rebalance and tone skin tissues.”
- The second layer is, “three-movement facial massage is given with a creamy hydrating formula,” designed to improve circulation and your skin’s elasticity.
- Layer three is a fresh seaweed mask that feels cool on the skin, reducing your skin’s swelling and refreshing all while hydrating and working to improve your skin’s tone and clarity. (This was my favorite layer!)
- The fourth layer is a mineral mask that is the grand finale and where you need to lay still while it creates a, “gentle warmth to activate the properties of the seaweed mask beneath it.” While the fourth layer was setting, Lauren gave me a hand and arm massage, further relaxing me while Repêchage’s Eye Rescue Pads sat on my eyes.
The third and fourth layer add weight to the mask which is surprisingly heavy though not overwhelmingly so and when the melded together mask came off at the end of my facial, I felt dewey but not overly moist though the experience will vary person-to-person depending on your skin’s condition going into the experience.
The entire experience took about 90 minutes- some of the most relaxing 90 minutes of 2014. Lauren was amazing explaining what was happening every step of the way, highlighting how each part of the facial was benefitting my skin and telling me about the ingredients that were in each layer part of the facial. An added benefit of the experience is that Lauren refreshed the skin on my neck and décolletage as well as my face.
It’s been one week and my skin still feels properly hydrated and much refreshed. Now my skin ready for summer. Is yours?
