Spring is here, and that signals an annual ritual for many people — spring cleaning. Take time to refresh not only your home, but your self-care routine too.
Vivian’s Boutique Spa at Ross and Greenville offers a fresh, nontoxic approach to manis, pedis, facials, and massages. Here are a few tips from spa owner and pampering expert Kristin Barton for a spring refresh:
Keep it clean
When was the last time you spruced up your skincare? New, natural innovations in skincare deliver effective results with all-natural ingredients, many of which are also organic or vegan.
Jurlique, a botanically based “seed to skin” product line is featured in each of Vivian’s facial treatments. The company maintains its own farm and utilizes certified organic and biodynamic farming methods to grow and harvest ingredients used in its line of cleansers, serums, and moisturizers. Jurlique provides high-performing, naturally based skincare that’s good for your skin and the planet.
Vivian's maintains its commitment to a nontoxic spa environment with nail services as well. Zoya, a “10-free” polish line, is free of toxic ingredients like formaldehyde and phthalates, and Vivian’s offers more than 50 Zoya shades for your mani or pedi. The vitamin-infused Orly brand and LED lights (instead of UV) are featured if you’re interested in gel nail services.
Find seasonal opportunity
Vivian’s likes to keep things fresh with new, seasonal treatments. This spring, everything’s coming up roses, as Vivian’s offers a Rose Quartz Massage, Rosy Glow Facial, and Sweet Cream and Rose Mani/Pedi.
Rose quartz, known to promote balance and healing, is used in the Rose Quartz Massage. Feel your muscles ease as vegan massage cream, infused with rosehip seed oil, nourishes skin and calms your senses. Rose quartz stones are used on troubled areas to release tension and stress.
The Rosy Glow Facial includes a rosehip and macadamia oil cream mask to protect cells from environmental damage with essential fatty acids that balance and nourish your skin. An antioxidant-rich, replenishing serum made from rosa gallica flower extract addresses signs of dehydration and offers extended moisture to keep skin cushioned and radiant. A rose quartz stone-facial massage helps to increase circulation, improve elasticity, and reduce the appearance of puffiness and fine lines.
Vivian’s has created its very own epsom salt and rose petal medley as part of the Sweet Cream and Rose Mani/Pedi. Soak away the stress of the day with this custom blend, then enjoy a vegan vitamin E-enriched sweet cream scrub to soften skin. Unwind as Jurlique’s Rose body lotion is massaged into your legs, feet, arms, and hands for a hydrating and beautifully-scented experience.
Discover local gems
Vivian’s is pleased to feature two local product lines as part of its spa services. FarmHouse Fresh, based out of McKinney, is a cruelty-free natural skincare line (many products are vegan and organic as well). Several of the deliciously scented bath bombs, scrubs, oils, and body creams are used in Vivian’s manis, pedis, and massages. Carrollton-based Jack Black is a men’s skincare line, and Vivian’s incorporates its serums, moisturizers, scrubs, and lotions into its selection of gentlemen’s facials, manicures, and pedicures.
Celebrate with friends
Spring can be a busy time of year for special occasions — graduations, baby showers, and weddings. Refresh your social calendar and create a relaxing experience for everyone with a spa day. Vivian’s is happy to host your special event with a fun afternoon of spa treatments for you and your family and friends. You can relax in fluffy robes, sip champagne, and enjoy time together in Vivian’s comfy, chic lounge. It’s the perfect way to celebrate new beginnings and cherished friends.
