It’s no secret that stress, sleepless nights and sun exposure wreck havoc on even the prettiest of complexions. November is National Healthy Skin Month, a campaign sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology, and can’t come at a better time because as we head into colder months, it’s a good idea to keep skin in tip-top shape by visiting a skincare professional to revamp your winter routine. For dryness, acne and everything in between, here are five tried-and-tested places for facials in the East Valley.
Bliss Scottsdale. Located at the W Hotel, Bliss Scottsdale is a breath of fresh air with an endless array of seriously effective facials with a not so serious vibe. From anti-aging to oxygen to the morning after pick-me-up Hangover Herbie, there’s something for every spot, wrinkle and hint of lackluster.
Glam Lounge, Scottsdale. Not just the hub for all hard to find makeup essentials, this boutique beauty apothecary houses treatment rooms for high performance Sonya Dakar facials along with custom, oxygen and on-the-go treatments. If you’re looking for something a little deeper, the experienced and super friendly Glam girls also perform Photo Actif Photo Facials and peels. *Mention Arizona Spa Girls for $35 off a 60-minute European Facial ($50, reg $85).
Just a Tease Salon, Chandler. Resident skincare expert (and new owner!) Heather Madden performs facials, peels and dermaplaning to ease complexion issues that span across the board.
