’Tis the season to be pampered!

Be pampered at Novo Spa in Toronto

The time has come when we start to plan for the infamous Christmas parties and festivities that December brings.
Unfortunately miracles don’t happen overnight and with the skin’s renewal process being a 28 day cycle, now is when we need to start working our magic to make sure we look and feel amazing for the big night out.

Novo Spa offers a range of treatments to leave you feeling party ready and, between treatments, we offer a selection of products that can help you look after yourself at home too.
Charlotte Barbosa, our skincare expert at Novo Spa, is here to guide us through the process from our head down to our toes…

Face

Treatment Recommendations:
We offer a number of facials dependant on your skin type, all treatments are results driven and give varying results on what concern needs to be targeted. Every facial includes a thorough skin consultation/analysis and a treatment plan.
**All facials will leave you ready to make an appearance ANY AND EVERYWHERE so slide into the holidays confidently and beautifully!

Charlotte’s ultimate facial combo is Microdermabrasion with Guinot’s Hydradermie Deluxe Treatment. Skin resurfacing and micro currents combined in one treatment for a complete facial rejuvenation package that not only brightens, hydrates and purifies but also gives an instant firming effect!

Home Recommendations:
When you feel good, you look good. Which is why having glowing and radiant skin is a must for any big occasion. With the festive season comes late nights and overindulgence. This makes it a little tricky to keep your skin in tip-top condition for all the parties you’ll have to attend. However, good habits and a few amazing products don’t make it impossible.

We promise your home care routine will extend the life of your professional facial, allowing you to reach your skin care goals.
We know when it comes to mastering the ideal skincare routine; it can take time, a lot of effort and also the know-how. Book your free skin consultation with one of our skin care experts who can recommend a home maintenance programme developed specifically for your needs to ensure long-term results!

** Pro Tip: Charlotte’s ultimate skincare tip for prepping for the festive season is nightly brightening face masks. “They add such a beautiful glow to your skin”. Try Guinot’s Instant Brightening Masks they come in a handy pack of 7 for an intensive treatment. Formulated with stabilized Vitamin C, it restores luminosity and guarantees an instant brightening effect!

Body

Treatment Recommendations:
Our Organic Exfoliation Sugar Glow Treatments are just the thing to renew dry, dehydrated and irritated skin. Choose from one of two scrubs, and relax while every last inch of your body is exfoliated. Aged skin cells are sloughed away as the skin is cleansed, exfoliated and stimulated. The application of either cranberry, pomegranate or blueberry soufflé moisturizing lotion seals in moisture and hydrates the skin! The end result is refreshed skin that will be soft, smooth and feeling like silk from tip-to-toe!

Home Recommendations:
Body scrubs and exfoliators slough away dull, dry skin to reveal softer, smoother skin. Guinot’s Gommage Facile Foaming Body Scrub eliminates dry dead skin cells whilst cleansing the skin creating a healthy glow. Do this once to twice a week to tackle dry skin. Follow with Guinot’s Hydrazone Moisturizing Body Lotion to leave your skin feeling irresistibly smooth.

**Pro Tip: Get a glow the safe and easy way! Golden skin is in no matter the time of year, but as a professional skin care therapist Charlotte advises against the use of tanning beds, instead our Scrub and Tan Treatment uses St Tropez products to ensure a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow perfect to pair with a Christmas party dress! With a wide range of after-care products we can ensure your tan lasts you from Christmas right through to New Years!

Feet & Hands

Treatment recommendations:

Your hands and feet deserve some TLC too after all the hard work you have put them through this year. Our infamous pedicures are the ultimate pampering treat for your feet not only does it include all the essentials but also a specialty foot and lower leg massage and exfoliation, chocolate mud mask with warm towels all whilst relaxing in the comfort of a massage chair!

**Pro Tip: A Shellac Manicure is perfect for long lasting results so they will last over Christmas and New Year too

Home Recommendations:

Eminence’s Vanilla Mint Hand Cream is used by our therapists and is great for hard-working hands to leave them feeling nurtured and hydrated throughout the day. When it comes to your feet, apply Footlogix’s Very Dry Skin Formula Mousse before bed. Putting socks on not only keeps your feet warm, but you will awake to silky soft feet too! 

The countdown to the Holiday party season is on. We advise booking in advance so your Christmas sparkle is flawless

Be confident, happy, and glowing from head to toe this holiday season

Best wishes,
