The feeling of a good facial and the benefits that follow are awesome. The hidden secret is that you don't have to guilty when you spoil yourself when it done at the Aveda School. I was starting to feel the stress of the holidays and at 57 my face was breaking out. A call to Aveda and the next day I was ready to be pampered.
It was a wonderful surprise when Amber at the front desk told me she re-arranged the students and I was able to get my favorite student Jamie. I will admit I go every few weeks so the fact that Amber knew who my favorite was a sign of noticing the little details. Which she does each time I walk in the door. Heck, I have a special mug for their awesome tea to start my experience the minute I check-in.
Once on the table, I closed my eyes, took three deep breaths and focused on the music.
The first thing I said was "I will miss your fingers" as Jamie started stripping away my makeup and with each hot towel I felt my stress level lesson.
I knew my days with Jamie were limited as she will be graduating soon. Next week to be exact and I want to wish Jamie much success with her next chapter.
