The Japanese Facial

I have to say that my all time favorite treatments are facials. I’m always amazed at how my skin feels after a facial, so soft! One of the new treatments at the Ranch is the Japanese Facial that focuses on Japanese massage techniques and improving circulation, which is essential for glowing skin.

The facial took place at the Villas Health Center, a beautiful building where most of the Ranch’s spa treatments are done. The Villas Health Center features sunlit hallways with beautiful Mexican art, herb and lemon infused water to cool down from the warm weather and a sauna, steam room and hot tub along with a gorgeous outside deck  on the second floor. What a serene place to relax in and receive a treatment!

Mona was my aesthetician and started out by applying the Soothing Cleanser and Purifying Face Polish by Amala. All the products by Amala smelled divine! Mona did a wonderful job, taking the time to delicately massage my face, focusing on certain massage techniques that seemed to lift my skin and were stimulating yet relaxing at the same time. Not only did my skin feel soft and smooth afterwards, but my facial muscles seemed more toned as well. The facial emphasized Japanese massage techniques, which I loved – it was my favorite part!

By the end of the facial, I felt totally relaxed and my skin was super soft with a bright glow. Mona also applied Amala’s Purifying Moisturizer, Hydrating Eye Treatment, Coola Suncare SPF 30 and Soothing Lip Balm. I felt like a million bucks afterwards.

I had the 50 minute facial, but there is also an 80 minute option with extended facial massage, eye-area treatment experience and extractions (if needed.)  I highly recommend this facial for anyone who’s looking for a gentle way to plump up, lift and brighten their skin!
