During the “most wonderful time of the year,” we tend to take care of everyone and everything else while overlooking our own needs.  And when we slow down long enough to enjoy that office party or gift exchange, we tend to overindulge.  One of the first places that the stress of the holidays shows is on your skin.  That’s why Kristin Fox, owner of Let’s Face It Skin Care (Let’s Face It), invites you to join her for Glow on the Go:  a 30-minute, $39 facial that will make you look good and feel good for the holidays.

Conveniently located at 30669 U. S. Highway N. in Palm Harbor, Let’s Face It provides state of the art treatments throughout the year to include specialty facials, microdermabrasion, skin tightening, chemical peels, scrubs, hair removal, and much more. Licensed Esthetician and Owner Kristin Fox views healthy skin maintenance as an important part of optimal health, “I believe that healthy skin is beautiful skin, which is why the services I offer are designed to bring your skin back to its optimal health in order to give you the beautiful glow you’ve always wanted. My skin care treatments are customized to be as unique as you are, and I only use products and treatments that are safe for your skin.”

Kristin added that she considers herself to be a “skin educator,” who views each client as an individual.  A first appointment at Let’s Face It includes a thorough assessment of a client’s individual concerns, and together; Kristin and her clients collaboratively design a treatment plan to address those needs.  “There is no one size fits all; each client’s skin as individual as they are,” said Kristin.

A recent client, Elixandra Bowles, left the following 5-Star review on Google Business, “I scheduled an appointment with Kristin and was a little nervous as I’ve always had problem skin. I had the idea of either derma-planing or doing a chemical peel, and Kristin advised me that she didn’t think either would be beneficial for me right now. Instead, she gave me a fantastic facial and did some LED therapy and extractions to “reset” my skin. She also had a product available for purchase to help with the redness I was experiencing. I’ve been using it for three (3) days and absolutely love it. I will be returning to Kristin in the future for either micro-needling or a chemical peel and definitely another facial. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. Thank you Kristin!”

Kristin Fox recommends that regular facials be included in your overall health maintenance program, and they are more affordable than you think.  Investing in healthy skin now can prevent more costly treatments down the road.  Outcomes of regular treatment include cleansing of pores, ease of make-up application, anti-aging effects (smoothes wrinkles, brightens complexion), skin tightening, skin tone (decreases redness), skin cell renewal from proper exfoliation, and lymphatic drainage.  

  A client visiting the area from Boston, Alix Bigley, wrote, “I was visiting my parents in the area and decided I would go to Kristin because my mom’s skin has improved drastically since she has been visiting her for regular facials. This was obviously my first appointment with Kristin, and during our consultation before the service I felt like she really was listening as I was telling her about my skin and skin challenges. She made very helpful and insightful suggestions as far as what products I might want to try and to avoid in my regular skincare routine, and also what I might want to ask my dermatologist…The facial itself was amazing. My pores desperately needed to be unclogged and my skin needed some TLC. She went to town on the extractions—thank you!!—and applied an amazing mask that left me feeling supple and hydrated. The very best thing about the experience was that it cost me less than half of what I pay for a subpar facial in Boston—and her service is WAY better than anything I’ve been able to find in my area of Boston. I’ll definitely be back the next time I visit family in the area. Thank you, Kristin!”

Never is the need for relaxation more important than during the holidays.  Indeed, beauty is skin deep, and a Glow on the Go, 30-minute facial can help you slow down, rest, and rejuvenate.  Lack of sleep, dehydration, and inflammation from over indulging results in dark circles under the eyes, redness, and sagging skin. Facials can be more relaxing than a massage, and they don’t require your face to be squashed into a head rest. When you need to de-stress and relax, a facial will make you look good and feel good.

While regular facials are an important part of overall health and beauty maintenance, after care and daily skin care is integral.  With the barrage of cosmetics and make-up on the market, clients can become more stressed trying to decide what products are best for their skin.  At Let’s Face It, there is no pushing products; Kristin makes recommendations based on her clients’ individual concerns, and she recommends only those products that will help them reach their goals.
