Spa Fort Collins and Stress

We know that stress is a killer. When you are stressed out cortisol surges through your body sending it into a fight or flight mode. It can have devastating effects on your internal organs, cause weight gain and even high blood pressure, strokes and heart attacks.

Have you ever thought about the effects of stress on your skin? The skin is the largest organ in the body and one of its primary functions is to eliminate toxins. When you are stressed out that is going to show up on your skin.

It might manifest in deep wrinkles or frown lines. Perhaps it will come out in rosacea, acne or dry flaky skin. It could cause discoloration if your hormones are out of balance. Deep pockets, puffiness and darkness under the eyes that make you look chronically tired.  

When you’re stressed out your skin is going to reflect that. One of the reasons that I went into aesthetics is because I know how detrimental stress can be to your life and your skin.

I also know that a spa treatment can have a very healing and medicinal effect on your stress levels and your skin.

When you relax on my table my intention is to bring you to a deep state of relaxation that is almost like meditation. You might experience rest and relaxation for the first time in a long time. We treat your skin with nourishing plant-based products, but even better than that is we treat you to a stress reducing, pampering experience that will make you feel happier for days.
