When it comes to skincare the first thing that comes to mind is prevention. As a skincare expert, I am asked constantly how to reverse damage that is visible on the skins surface. And although at Glow we offer many therapies to treat skin damage, the truth is that it is easier to prevent it than to correct it. We like to educate our clients so that your time at Glow was maximized in the treatment room, with our products and tips along the way to keep you Glowing between your appointments. Here are some preventative measures you can take to reduce damage, protect your skin and slow the aging process.
SPF! Your skins best accessory. Choosing a broad spectrum SPF will protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. It is important to protect the skin from long periods and limit the exposure to being burnt. A lifetime of sun exposure greatly enhances your risks of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and skin Cancer. You can find this preventative skincare tool in many forms in our retail boutique. Glow offers tinted SPF, Oil Free, Broad Spectrum, Physical Sunscreens as well as our award winning Glo Minerals Make Up.
Say no to tanning beds too! Tanning beds are like time machines that launch you into premature aging of the skin. With a heightened risk of Skin Cancer and multiple other health concerns, tanning beds are so 10 years ago! Try a spray tan instead! Here at Glow we use a solution that is a cocktail of vitamin rich antioxidants and botanicals that will enrich your skin. You will leave with a flawless application that is beautifully bronze. Enjoy for 7-10 days before needing a re spray. See why we have been written up in Philadelphia Magazine as a top 10 contender of “Best Spray Tans” in Philadelphia!
When choosing a skincare regimen that is right for you, book a Facial with one of our skincare therapists. Glow is home to highly trained Estheticians that can take you on a skincare journey. Our staff is passionate about creating visible results for your face and body. We have the creative control to hand select the products that line our shelves. We chose to present our clients with 2 distinct skincare lines that offer science, results and integrity. We want our guests to feel confident that when they are sent home with a product it will provide exactly the result they seek.
From powerful anti oxidant rich ingredients and strengthening peptides to acne fighting alpha hydroxy acids and refining ingredients. We offer a well balanced menu of skincare services for you to enjoy, each complemented with home care products to extend your spa experience beyond our treatment rooms. Receive a comprehensive skin evaluation at your next Facial and have your skincare therapist educate you on our botanical rich Privai products. Or perhaps your skin needs an extra boost, inquire about Glo Therapeutics and find out which products will best suit your skincare needs!
Let’s talk about Brazilian waxing! Glow is home to many “Best Waxing” awards and most well known for our Brazilian waxing. We have perfected this technique to maximize your comfort and all while not leaving a hair…down there! We use wax that is specially formulated for your most sensitive parts. We have a strict no double dipping policy, and get you cleaned up front to back! We are aware that this is not the most pleasant service we offer, but we pride ourselves on making it quick, professional and as painless as we can possibly provide. A tip to enhance this service for your comfort- Make sure you let the hair grow to about 1/4 of an inch or 2 weeks from your last shave. When possible don’t shave between appointments. Exfoliate the skin the day before your scheduled appointment. Take an advil 30 minutes before your arrival time. And if you are really sensitive, or even a bit scared grab a numbing cream in our retail boutique. One tube will last for months of appointments and will make waxing a breeze!
