Instead of going to daycare when she was a little girl, Tatyana went to cosmetology school. Technically, her mother was enrolled in the classes, but Tatyana would tag along, thus beginning her first courses in her informal beauty education. Since then, her knowledge has only grown, what with working at a college of beauty, helping helm operations at a Beverly Hills skincare line, and continuing to learn through regular classes, world travel, and brain osmosis.
During her career in the industry, Tatyana has kept a philosophy that fuses Western technology with Eastern philosophy. It's a credo that views the spa not as a luxury but as a way of life, a preventive therapy meant to inspire an embrace of health. At her spa, Tatyana nurtures this idea with skincare services such as microdermabrasion and peels, body treatments such as sugar and salt polishing, and facial treatments that cleanse and exfoliate the skin that no longer serves you. Éminence Organics skincare products, Jane Iredale makeup, and other premium products line the spa's shelves, waiting patiently for a loving home.
One day, Araceli decided to get a facial. She figured that it would probably cleanse and hydrate her skin, but she didn?t anticipate that it would lead her to a new career. For a full 60 minutes, her aesthetician doted on her with ingredients customized to suit her skin. Araceli remembers that first facial better than any since?largely because it?s the very experience she tries to replicate every day at her own spa, Beautiful Skin by Araceli.
Araceli runs her spa according to a simple philosophy?facials and chemical peels should feel good. To this end, she always conducts a thorough skin analysis and talks with her clients to understand their concerns. She then uses this information to customize a safe, effective facial with PCA Skin?s gentle blend of lactic acid, vitamin C, and phytohormones designed to plump up skin like an accidentally swallowed balloon.
Aside from being ingested by a toddler at some point, mud, clay, ink, and 24-karat gold don?t have much else in common?except for helping skin look better. Spa Botanica uses these unlikely ingredients, along with MD Care skincare products, during its roster of facials, body treatments, and henna-tattoo services. A 24-karat gold facial uses a mask made of the rare metal to instantly lift the skin and help prevent wrinkles from settling in. An infrared detoxifying body wrap detoxifies from head to toe, helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, and improves circulation to the skin. Ornate designs temporarily decorate the skin with henna art that can last up to three weeks.
One of Bakersfield's largest day spas, Essentiels Spa et Beauté offers clients an array of services targeting the hair, skin, nails, and muscles. Turn your torso over to one of the spa's lead kneaders for a fully customized hour of integrative massage, which can incorporate hot stones, focus on particular regions of your body, or otherwise tailor itself to your wants, needs, and muscular event horizons. Those who mostly hold tension in their face can opt instead for a 60-minute European-style Essentiels signature facial, a multifaceted pamper party that leaves necks and shoulders rubbed, hands and feet coddled, and cranial facades soft, smooth, and glowing with the sort of radiance impossible to achieve through glow-stick earrings. Essentiels complements its satisfying services with the ambient assets of an urban-chic environment, giving guests an elegant escape from the frenetic pace and gauche mimes of everyday life.
