Join us to learn about effective skin care for every generation of your life. Say goodbye to acne, age spots and fine lines! Glen Ivy’s Expert Skin Care Team are your guides for this complimentary skin care event that includes an in-depth skin analysis, exfoliation and multiple layers of hydration.
Our appearance, especially our skin, says so much about us. The “healthy glow” is a window to our inner health. The flush of our cheeks, brightness of our eyes, and the clarity of our complexion all show our vitality and youth. When we experience problems with our skin, we can become self-conscious about ourselves and our appearance. One of our very own Glen Ivy Hot Springs Massage Therapists, Erin, was seeking a solution to her lifelong skin care concerns. Erin was prone to break outs and deep pore congestion but found that most products to correct acne made her skin irritated and sensitive. Although Erin experienced some temporary relief, she had a difficult time finding a way to stop the cycle of breakouts from happening permanently. When planning for her wedding, Erin needed a skin care and makeup regimen that would allow her to be “bride beautiful” on her special day.
Erin was color matched to Jane Iredale Skin Care Makeup by one of our Glen Ivy Hot Springs Skin Care Specialist and began routinely wearing a mineral powder every day to work. Erin began seeing immediate improvement in her skin and was able to have the coverage she needed without causing additional breakouts. Jane Iredale mineral powder provided Erin with oil-free, chemical free and fragrance free makeup with a SPF of 20, which contains Zinc oxide, an anti-microbial ingredient that doesn’t harbor bacteria. Erin saw that she could finally wear make-up to work in her outdoor facility and be fully protected with a SPF she didn’t need to reapply throughout the day. Erin also enjoyed how easy Jane Iredale Skin Care Makeup was to apply; the minerals in the powder are micronized and provide sheer coverage. Erin was concealing her skin’s inflammation while treating it at the same time.
On Erin’s wedding day she needed all day, all night coverage with staying power. She used Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream under her mineral powder to give herself flawless coverage and long lasting wear. The bride knew her photos and face would be perfect through the wedding service, tears of happiness and dancing the night away even without reapplication. Jane Iredale products are classified “Very Water Resistant”; lasting up to 40 minutes in warm running water and will not smudge or crease. Anti-inflammatory properties, like pomegranate sea algae allow for relief of redness and sensitivity. Erin loves sharing her Jane Iredale experience and the progress her skin has made, and wants others to enjoy benefits of skin care makeup as well.
The following products were applied by Erin herself on her wedding day, with no need for touch ups before these photos were taken. All products featured in the photos are available in the Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa Salon. Visit the Spa Salon today to be color matched by any of our licensed Estheticians and experience for yourself the union between Skin Care and Makeup, Jane Iredale!

Waxing is a great way to remove the hair and its follicle for up to six weeks, and hard wax and soft wax are both very efficient. Deciding which type of wax is best for you depends on the area being waxed and the density of the hair. In my professional opinion, soft wax is better used to remove fine hair in areas such as face, arms, legs, chest, and back. Hard wax removes course hair more efficiently than fine hair, and is a better alternative to soft wax when you are using facial products that contain any type of acid exfoliant. Hard wax only adheres to only the hair itself— not to your skin—lowering the possibility of redness and inflammation, whereas soft wax must adhere to the hair and skin to be removed with the fabric strip, leaving slightly more sensitivity in the area.
Before receiving a waxing treatment it is recommended to exfoliate the night before, and to wear loose clothing before and after your treatment. It is also recommended not to immerse a waxed area in hot water for at least twenty four hours after a waxing service. Most people will need to use an ingrown hair serum after a waxing service, as ingrown hairs are very common. We offer amazing pre- and post-waxing products such as exfoliants, pre-numbing serum, ingrown hair serum, and inhibiting hair gel (thins the hair by 26% and slows the growth by 35% after one month of use!).
We look forward to providing you with a professional, hygienic and comfortable waxing treatment, and if you have any questions, please be sure to ask your esthetician.

Beautiful skin for Mother and Daughter! Join Glen Ivy’s team of expert skin care specialists for this complimentary skin care event that includes an in-depth skin analysis, exfoliation, and multiple layers of hydration. This event is complimentary with admission.
Our partnership with German-based Primavera Life Skincare company could not be a more perfect fit. Their certified natural skin care and aromatherapy products for the skin, face and senses, with specialized lines for beauty, wellness, and home complement one another, working synergistically for an individual’s needs, moods and lifestyle. Primavera began over twenty years ago and was founded by Ute Leube, Kurt L. Nübling and their group of friends who shared their passion for nature and its holistic benefits, becoming one of today’s best known names in aromatherapy. Primavera brings a sensibility that is aligned with Glen Ivy’s own legacy, with a philosophy that every day is a chance to bring nature closer, to discover balance with the both outside world and the world within—their mission, to simply share the benefits of healing plants to the skin and senses.
Executive Spa Director Danny Silva on the new partnership: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Primavera—the preeminent organic skin care line from Europe, and the first skincare company to receive NATRUE certification. We have been working closely with their knowledgeable team to create an exclusive menu of facial offerings that we know our guests will love, not only for the benefits of their plant based products on their skin (our body’s largest organ), but also for the harmonizing Primavera aromatherapy ritual that begins and ends each treatment.”
We can’t wait for you to meet our friends at Primavera, so we are celebrating with “5 Days of Primavera Giveaways!” Fans will learn more about Primavera and have a chance to win some wonderful prizes. Every day next week we will be highlighting 5 of our favorite Primavera products.
How do you win? Make sure to check our blog daily next week, wait for the Primavera product review and details on how it can be all yours! If you need a hint, our first product includes the ingredients Organic Grape Seed and Organic Sage Essential Oil which are prized for their skin clearing and softening benefits.
Last week you, our wonderful fans, submitted questions for “What Would You Ask a Skin Care Professional?” during our MASK-erade Week. Our own Glen Ivy Estheticians sat down and answered your skin care questions. Here’s what they had to say:
Are there any products that you would recommend to help lighten dark spots on the face?
With any hyper-pigmentation, you want to be extremely consistent with SPF (at least 30) regardless of the weather. You also want to stay away from tanning and excessive sun exposure. As far as products go, those that are high in Vitamin C as well a brightening or lightening serum will help with the dark spots. As always, seeing a skin therapist or dermatologist is beneficial to ensure results.
How do you keep the skin clear and what are the best products to help minimize breakouts?
Be sure to cleanse and hydrate skin in the morning and at night. Products with a Benzoyl Peroxide or Salicylic Acid base would be the most beneficial for problem skin. Over the counter acne products aren’t recommended because they are high in alcohol and strip your skin of it’s natural moisture. If you continue to have excessive breakouts or acne, contact a dermatologist.
What else can I do to fend off the wrinkles?
Using products high in antioxidants is crucial in preventing signs of aging. You want to make sure you are extremely consistent with a proper skin care regimen and always incorporate sun block and moisturizer. Drinking plenty of water and limiting alcohol, smoking and sun exposure will help.
Are the makeup remover/cleansing wipes made for your face really okay for my skin?
The make up remover pads have a high percentage of alcohol and perfume. We suggest a more gentle oil based or cream cleanser that won’t dry out the sensitive eye area or hurt your eye lashes.
How often should I receive a facial?
Receiving a facial every 4-6 weeks is a wonderful routine to help maintain beautiful, healthy skin.
Which is better for maintaining your eyebrows: waxing or threading?
What it comes to waxing or threading, threading is less damaging to the skin tissue but if your skin is not sensitive and you are not using exfoliating acids such as Retin-A or acne medication, than either way is effective to remove the hair follicle properly.
Have any other skin care questions? Post them here and we’ll have our skin care professionals answer them!
Glen Ivy Hot Springs is proud to offer Primavera organic skin care products in their spa facial treatments and for sale in the Glen Ivy Spa Lifestyle Store. Primavera was started over twenty years ago in Germany by a group of friends to become one of the most well known names in aromatherapy. From there Primavera took this great start and expanded it into an exceptional organic skin care line, based on the brands heritage with essential oils. Their mission is to create products that are not only natural and plant based, but also perform outstandingly and are a pleasure to use.
An environmentally and socially conscious company, they have established a worldwide network of fair trade partnerships with organic and biodynamic farmers to provide them with the pure ingredients used in their products. The company practices great care and respect for the environment every day with efforts to minimize the use of packaging wherever possible, recycling the warm air from their plant room to heat the warehouse, and have installed energy efficient movement detected lighting throughout their facility. And of course they recycle all glass, plastic and cardboard.
Today Jennifer and I took a walk over to our Spa Lifestyle Store at the Hot Springs to check out the new products (one of our favorite things to do!). Our goal today: experience Primavera, a new product line of organic skincare and aromatherapy products.
The first thing that caught our eyes while we browsed the testers was the beautiful packaging and display – and that was only the beginning. We could hardly contain ourselves as we opened all of the testers to smell the different scents. Being a bit obsessed with nail care, it didn’t take long for Jennifer to shout “I found my favorite!” There she stood, grinning ear to ear with a bottle of Primavera’s Hand and Nail Cream. Shortly after, I found Primavera’s Lip Balm – a sure addition to my ever-growing lip balm collection. Needless to say, we spent quite some time perusing the entire line!
Next time you’re at Glen Ivy Hot Springs, be sure to try one of our many different Facials that we offer or stop by the Spa Lifestyle Store to smell and sample these products – they’re amazing!
