When people think of you, the first thing that comes to mind is most likely your face, closely followed by your puggle, then a really weird commercial they saw on Monday-night football. Make your mug memorably shiny-fresh and give your designer lapdog a run for its kibble with today's skin-restoring deal. For $37, you'll get a 60-minute signature facial (a $90 value) at Mon Sanctuaire in Old Town Alexandria. Mon Sanctuaire is an intimate sanctuaire that tailors treatments to each customer's individual wants, needs, and park bench reveries.
Mon Sanctuaire uses Esthederm skin-care products, which work with your skin's biology to teach the skin to repair itself. Mon Sanctuaire's skilled aestheticians will douse your countenance in a calming milk-infused cleanser with Esthederm's cellular water to hydrate and calm your skin. They'll draw out the lingering sebum, gunk, and dead skin cells from deep inside your pores and gently wash them away. Next, the face experts will gently exfoliate your skin and massage a hydrating mask onto your mug to help you relax as the mask restores balance to your skin's moisture levels.
Your facial at Mon Sanctuaire will make your skin feel cleaner than it did after its first cleaning, when the nurse wiped life's juices from your baby-soft face. Even if you follow a rigorous skin-care routine, you likely lack the tools necessary to really probe into your pores and de-clog them from all the makeup, dirt, and gunk trapped inside. Facial rejuvenation does great things and can help reduce wrinkles, make skin firm, and get rid of bothersome blackheads. Experts advise getting one every four to six weeks due to skin regeneration, or at least seasonally.
- Mon Sanctuaire is a[n] incredibly healing environment for your skin, body and soul. I do not see it as pampering myself (although you will feel pamperd [sic]) as much as the one place where I can go and be recharged to meet life's every day challenges. – Deb, Yahoo! Local
- [Owner Melinda Naff's] skin care products are heaven. I have had facials & body scubs. Not easy with my skin being overly sensitive. My skin is so much improved all my family-friends have noticed. – CM, Yahoo! Local
Motivated by the belief that most people in this results-driven society often just need a safe space in which they can just breathe, Mon Sanctuaire provides a cozy atmosphere where clients can do just that. In the treatment rooms, white walls and white curtains surround patrons lying on soft white sheets, waiting for a massage session to release tension resulting from typing at a desk all day and hauling a mattress into the treehouse every night. Guests might also relax here while an aesthetician performs a facial using Institute Esthederm products to restore balance, tighten skin, or fade wrinkles. Body-care sessions such as reflexology or mud wraps with scalp massages further calm the senses.
