The HydraFacial

I had a gift certificate to be used at a local spa. I’ve been hanging on to this certificate that I got for Christmas last year.

I have been to this spa for haircuts. The stylist that cut my hair has moved on to another salon, and I watched a YouTube video about how to trim your own hair. So you know what I have been doing out in the yard.

I decided to get a facial. It’s what the ladies of the British Isles do for their lovely skin. At least that is what I’ve read. So I looked at the spa’s website.

There were several types of facials listed. A Signature. A Deluxe. An Ultimate. And my favorite: A HydraFacial.

Why would this thing be named after a creature of mythology?

A HydraFacial it was to be, then.

I am happy to report that I did not sprout extra heads.

    What a treat! I only give myself a facial a home every now and then. Doesn’t do much good as I spent too much time in the sun when I was young. I think I would have chosen the HydraFacial too!

      It was like a tiny carpet cleaner squirting out solution and sucking up the debris. She suggested I would benefit from dermaplaning, which was like a Barbie and Ken-sized straight razor scraping off the dead skin and peach fuzz. All this was so new to me.
