The beauty mavens at Merle Norman Cosmetics and Day Spa enhance complexions and countenances using beauty products developed and produced in the U.S.A. During the 60-minute microdermabrasion treatment, a skilled aesthetician will slough off dead and damaged cells from the face and neck, helping to stimulate collagen growth and unearth a more youthful, even skin tone. A deep-cleaning pore procedure accompanies all treatments to ensure that skin is left glowing as vividly as a blushing firefly. Suitable for all skin types, multiple microdermabrasion treatments can help decrease the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars. Skin-smoothers perform the facial in a private spa area devoid of chatty taxi drivers and unsettling portraits with moving eyes.
Merle Norman Cosmetics and Day Spa
In the late 1920s, the Great Depression was rendering most Americans professionally and financially paralyzed. But in a small California kitchen, Merle Norman was putting a plan in motion to formulate her own skincare products and share them with family and friends. She truly believed in her formulas, knowing that by getting them on as many faces as possible, she would develop a following of customers. She was right—within a few years she and her nephew were opening their first studio in Santa Monica, and they eventually unveiled a series of independently operated stores that enabled women to take ownership during a time of gender-based limitations such as men-only restrooms.
Today, in approximately 2,000 stores across three countries, the three basic principles of Merle's original vision still apply. Each studio is independently owned and fosters an in-depth knowledge of the company's own line of makeup and skincare products. Just as Merle shared her creations with close friends and sallow mannequins more than 80 years ago, today's aestheticians embody the business's "try before you buy" philosophy. A menu of complimentary studio services—from foundation checks to express facials—allows patrons to sample the lauded brand before committing to the purchase of products or full spa treatments.
