It's peel season!
Cooler temperatures and lower UV levels make the fall, winter, and early spring the best time to do a chemical peel.
What is a chemical peel?
Believe it or not, chemical peels have been around since the mid-1800s, chemical peels use acid to break down the top layer, or layers, treating fine lines and wrinkles, large pores and dark spots, and help tighten the skin.
A peel allows your skin to shed off a layer, making room for new, healthier skin. As it sloughs off tired, dull skin cells it stimulates fresh healthy skin, allowing for accelerated cell turnover and gives collagen-making cells a kick start.
There are many types of chemical peels, Skin Diva offers superficial and medium depth.
What will I feel during a peel?
You will most likely feel a prickly or itching sensation with some heat. It will subside and you may experience some redness for 20 minutes to half an hour afterward.
What happens after a peel?
After the service, you will immediately notice an overall brightening and glow to the skin. Not everyone will "peel" in the days to come but rest assured that the acid is penetrating through the skin to make changes. Your skin may feel tight and dry and could be flaky around day 3 as skin is going through the regenerative process.
In the days following a chemical peel, drink lots of water and use a gentle cleanser and hydrating serum or gel, like one that contains hyaluronic acid to help soothe the skin. Staying out of direct sun and wearing a broad-spectrum SPF is imperative as your skin is healing.
A series of 3-6 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart is recommended to achieve desired results as everyone's skin is different.
Progressive Peel Special:
Receive a complimentary application of a hydrating and soothing hydro-jelly mask after EACH peel with the purchase of a series of 3 progressive peels for $200.
Must be purchased by November 30th to get this special.
Apple cider slushies are the perfect thing to keep in your freezer for an icy cold anytime treat. Scraping it with a fork to create the slushie consistency is oddly satisfying and a technique we borrowed from granitas. You could even take these to the next level make a homemade apple cider and impress everyone!
3 c. apple cider
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 mini cinnamon sugar donuts (garnish)
Pour cider, lemon juice and cinnamon in a loaf pan, whisking to combine.
Freeze for 1 hour.
Remove the cider mixture from the freezer and use a fork to scrape the slush-like mixture, so it doesn't turn into a giant ice cube. Once fully scraped and stirred, return it to the freezer for 1 hour more.
Remove the cider mixture from the freezer once again, using a fork to scrape and stir it into a slush-like consistency. The consistency should be like shaved ice. If it's not frozen enough for your tastes, pop it back in the freezer for another 45 minutes. Otherwise, spoon into glasses and garnish rim with mini donut.

Hemp seed oil is considered the single perfect source of essential fatty acids because it contains a balanced ratio of EFAs for optimal absorption. EFA’s are just as effectively absorbed through topical application on the skin. Slather on vegetable and botanical oils like hemp seed, safflower, soybean, and sunflower. In fact, in studies, just 7 days of daily application of EFA-rich oils (as mentioned above) completely transformed skin ailments like itchy, red, dry, flaky, uncomfortable dermatitis conditions.
What is hemp?
Hemp (Cannabis Sativa) is a hearty, fast-growing plant with fibers that have been used to create rope, fabrics, and more. Its seeds and oil have been used in foods for nutrition. The extracts of the full plant (leaves, stem, flowers, etc) just became legal to grow and use in the US, and the phytonutrients in these extracts are plentiful.
Is it legal?
Yes! In the US, thanks to the passage of the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill, which legalized the production and sale of all parts of the hemp plant, we can now reap the benefits of this marvelous plant through skincare in the spa and at home!
What are phytonutrients?
Many phytocannabinoids are found when hemp plant’s leaves, stems, buds, and flowers are extracted. Do not confuse any of these with THC, which is found in high levels in marijuana. THC is minimal to zero in industrial hemp, and in fact, you must show verified proof of THC content less than 0.3%.
What do phytocannabinoids do?
In terms of skincare, studies reveal that hemp extracts have many beneficial antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help the body fight free radical damage which means it:
