The Truth About Spa Skin Care Products

Aug 17, 2007
The concept of the spa visit has expanded and exploded over the last decade or so. The amount of treatments available at spas for the body, hair, and the skin is staggering. With the rise in spa popularity, there has also been a proliferation of spa skin care products.

Spa skin care products are now available both on and off spa premises, and have become an integral part of the spa experience. There are more choices available then ever before. Spa products can become a wonderful component and memory of your spa visit, but it is important to keep a few essentials in mind when planning any skin care product purchases.

The most traditional way skin care products are offered is usually at the end of the spa visit. If you are receiving a facial, usually the Esthetician will recommend several products during your treatment. The Esthetician may emphasize several key areas of skin improvement, and when you are ready to leave the spa, will have products available for you to purchase. You should not be made to feel pressured to purchase a number of expensive skin care products. Ask about less expensive products, or purchase the 1-2 products that have the highest priority for you.

As with all skin care products, spa skin care product development takes advantage of the current innovations in treating problems such as aging, wrinkles, and acne. Spa products often emphasize clinical study results, and the research and technology behind the product. Demand is high for products that manage or prevent sun-damage to skin. You may want to spend some time reading the material and doing some initial research into the clinical studies before purchasing.

Many spa products are available for purchase before, during, and after your spa visit. Spas may offer exclusive lines on their website, and many spa skin care products are now being offered at a variety of retail outlets. If products are available to purchase during your visit, see about any type of discounts that are available. Many spas will offer you a discount if you purchase at the spa directly, instead of telephoning or going to their website.

Private label products are prevalent at spas. Private label means the spa has purchased the product directly from a manufacturer and have added their own logo and label. It's a similar concept to the food products you see in the supermarket, the grocery store will have a product with their own logo on it, although they did not manufacture the item itself. While, private label products are often just as effective as spa developed products, keep in mind that you are not receiving anything that is particularily unique to the spa, other than the packaging. You should ask whether the spa creates the skin care products themselves, and let that be a deciding factor for purchase.

Buying and using spa skin care products can be a rewarding experience if done properly. By doing some research and asking questions, you will come away from the spa with effective products, and without breaking your budget. That way, you can put more funds toward your next spa relaxation holiday!
