5 Reasons to Keep Up with your Pedicure in the Winter

winetr pedi

It is only two weeks until Christmas! It is safe to say boot season is in full swing, our feet are rarely on display and pedicures become less of a priority. However, having just received a much needed pedicure in a festive bright red shade, I am reminded what a difference groomed, pretty feet can make to your overall happiness (it might not be logical, but I'm sure you know what I mean!).

So in lieu of the little things that keep us feeling great, I present to you five more very good reasons to keep up with your pedicures during non-sandal season:

1. It makes your life easier in the long run. During the colder months we are prone to dry, cracked skin that need extra care. Our feet get unbearably itchy and we lather up with multiple leg and foot creams trying to combat the problem. Although we do recommend at home scrubs and lotions to minimize the dryness, each week that passes without a professional filing and exfoliation leads to dead skin build up and calluses.(and who enjoys grated foot cheese!)

2. You feel like you've got it together when your at yoga, or Pilates, Bar Method or whatever barefoot workout you're into. (don't give anyone the satisfaction of judging your heavily chipped black toenail polish).

3. You feel sexy! Lets face it, no one (except your bf or husband) sees your sexy lingerie but you aren't going to feel too hot in granny panties or the old ones you have stashed for that special time of the month. Believe me, he will appreciate it too!

4. No more cringing when you take off tights or slip between fresh sheets and see patches of dry foot skin catch on the fabric. Nails on a chalkboard have got nothing on this troubling sensation.

5. The spa is a great place to escape and relax when the weather is crappy. Get a massage and a wax for that pretty lingerie while you're here!

How many of you keep up with your pedicure even during the crisp months? What motivates you?

Rustic Nature meets Modern Science : New Cyto-Luxe Facial

cyto-luxe_copy2At Citron Spa rustic nature meets modern science. You can find this theme throughout our spa from the carefully combined treatments to the mix of "nature meets modern" decor including natural woods, crisp greens and modern fresh white. We are firm believers in the Ayurvedic Philosophy and the incredible benefits that nature has on your mind, body and soul combined with the results that can be achieved with carefully chosen cutting edge technology to create a total package of overall well being. We seek out product lines that incorporate the use of plant based ingredients and are pesticide and paraben free. Aveda, our main, all natural product line, containing plant and flower based skin care, body care and aromatherapy provides a gradual, holistic approach to beautiful skin. The Cyto-Luxe Line by glo therapeutics is our newest, plant based, clinical product line of medical-grade skincare known for their therapeutic ingredients, innovative technology and cutting edge science to more aggressively transform the skin.

Introducing: Cyto-luxe Facial by glo therapeutics

Glo therapeutics developed the Cyto-luxe Collection, originally a trio of products that address the main causes of aging skin. Well, that trio has expanded to over eight Cyto-luxe products from Cleansers to Body Lotion.

Utilizing the science of plant stem cell technology, the Cyto-luxe collection contains cells that promote skin firmness, hydration and protection. Plants have meristem, which are unspecialized cells that divide and generate new cells and tissues within the plant. Depending on the signal they receive, these cells can develop into whatever part of the plant needs to be replaced. It is important to note that these are completely safe ingredients. Our plant stem cells do not alter human stem cells.

Phytostem technology has developed the ability to inspire these cells to differentiate into the chosen plant active, which is useful for skin. There are multiple advantages to these types of actives-unlike botanical extracts, even standardized one, Phytostems are grown in a pure, completely sustainable environment and not exposed to contaminants like pesticides.
In addition to the unique actives present in each Phytostem, there are Phytosterois, amino acids and Polysaccharides in each Pytostem compound. These compounds aid in keeping skin smooth and hydrated and they encourage collagen production.

Cyto-luxe Cleanser– Centella Stems GX aids firming, toning and reducing wrinkles
Cyto-luxe Mask– Citrustem protects and renews the skin
Cyto-luxe Serum– Phytostem Gardenia smooths the appearance of wrinkles
Cyto-luxe Face Essence– Resistem helps skin build anti-again defense
Cyto-luxe Face Cream– Phytostem Buddleja stimulates collagen production
Cyto-luxe Eye Cream– Phytostem Leontopodium (Edelweiss) provides antioxidant protection
Cyto-luxe Body Lotion– Centella Stems GX aids firming, toning and reducing wrinkles

Get Healthy, Glowing Skin

Here are 10
Simple Steps 
to your Best
Skin yet:

1. Use a Toner

   After cleansing it is always best to use a toner. Toner acts as a bonding agent for other products like moisturizer. We recommend Aveda's Skin Firming-Toning Agent that is made with Echinacea to seal in moisture.

2. Apply Highlighter
   A gentle sweep of highlighter along the top of the cheek bones gives a beautifully skin kissed look.

3. Don't Touch!
   Touching your face is the worst thing you can do for your complexion. Our hands are the number one culprit when it comes to the circulation and spread of germs.

4. Exfoliation
  Exfoliating is an extremely important part of your skin care regimen. Products like Aveda's Botanical Kinetics liquid Exfoliant easily removes any deadening skin cells and gives your skin a healthy glow.

5. Primer
  Using a primer before applying foundation with aid in giving a smooth application and appearance for the rest of you makeup.

6. Try a Masque
   While it is true that too much product can be harmful to creating healthy skin, there is one that, when applied once a week, can do wonders for that healthy glow. Aveda's Mud Masque is a gentle and effective masque that thoroughly cleanses and resurfaces the skin.

7. Choose the Right Lotion
   With the changing seasons, the weather can have a great affect on the overall condition of your skin. A proper consultation with an esthetician can lead you to a better understanding of your skin type and what it will require. There are so many types of lotions, and it is important to have the right fit for you.

8. Try a Brightening Cleanser
   You will see fantastic results with a cleanser that is geared towards the ultimate goal you would like to accomplish with your skin.

9. Stay Hydrated!
   Water naturally allows for toxins to flow out of your body which will leave you with a clearer complexion.

10. Eye Cream
   A healthy complexion starts with your eyes. Aveda's newest eye cream is made with all natural ingredients like caffeine and licorice root to alleviate puffiness and get rid of dark under-eye circles.

The Added Benefits of Luxury Spa Mani-Pedi's

Spa services are specifically created with one goal in mind, and that is to completely cater to the guest. Every visit should be a luxurious escape that allows you to find yourself breathing deeper breaths, sitting back, and thinking clearer, uncluttered thoughts.

Here are just some of the luxuries of Spa Mani-Pedi's

-  In order to maintain a relaxing and peaceful environment, each highly trained technician is sure that none of the services are ever rushed. This guarantees that, during your visit, you will have the full attention of the technician. 

-  Your nail technician at a spa is specifically trained in massage as well, and each service is designed to target stressed muscles in order to relieve pain and tension. 

- A Spa Mani-Pedi is focused on your overall relaxation experience as well as providing exceptional services to the guest - That means, flawlessly polished hands and toes.

 ...And last but not least... Self-care truly is a necessity.

Hot Stone Massage

Did you know?

Today's tradition of implementing Hot Stones into a massage originally began by Native Americans who used specific techniques with the stones in order to treat aching muscles and pains. This Hot Stone Massage that we offer today has been artfully mastered to duplicate the original experience.

Unsure about what to expect? Here are some relaxing details:

- Hot Stone Massage Therapy promotes deep muscle relaxation, while alleviating stress, pain and releasing toxins from the body.

- Man-Made Basalt Stones are used; they are made specifically to be smooth on the skin and able to retain heat.

- A Hot Stone Massage is ideal for any person who has found themselves to be suffering from muscular, joint and back pain.

- Using Hot Stones during a massage greatly helps in reducing stress and anxiety.

- The massage therapist will often use the Hot Stones as extensions of their own hands. They will also be placed on direct areas that you may be experiencing the most tension or pain. The warmed stones will lie comfortably and strategically on the skin for some time and removed once they are cooled.

And Remember... I'm always available to answer any questions you may have.

Simple Tips to make your Mani-Pedi last this summer

In Summer especially, we all love to have our hands and toes perfectly prepped and ready to be seen.


Here is our own list of 5 easy tips you can do at home to ensure that your mani-pedi will last between your visits to the Spa...

1) Put a dab of Vaseline on each nail every night before going to bed in order to keep your cuticles hydrated. This will make a noticeable difference on your manicure, while also helping your nails to grow strong!


2) Always use rubber gloves when cleaning around your house. Even when doing to the dishes! They will help a great deal in the overall protection of your nails as well as the polish.


3) Be sure to pat your hands and feel down thoroughly after taking a shower or going in the pool. It's especially important to get between those toes in order to prevent fungal infection.


4) If filing your own nails, a clean metal file is best for personal use. Also, be sure to only file in one direction.


5) And last but not least, always moisturize! One of the best things about a Spa Mani-Pedi is the quality of the lotion used on both the hands and feet. Be sure to purchase your own to bring home with you and use throughout the day!

8 ways to have more energy


Though we all may love and adore the morning and afternoon pick-me-up of a delicious cup of coffee, there are many things you can do and add to your daily routine in order to boost your bodies' natural energy levels.


1. Say NO to the Snooze Button. Sleeping the extra five minutes in the morning can actually cause you to feel more exhausted and groggy. It's better to force yourself into waking up and getting right out of bed, no matter how difficult it may seem some days.


2. HYDRATE! Especially first thing in the morning, drinking some water is the best thing you can do to wake your system and get you ready and energized for the day. The benefits of drinking the required amount of water (8 cups a day) are endless! From losing weight to getting rid of headaches, water truly is the best medicine.


3. Caffeinate Wisely. Although a cup of coffee will help in boosting your alertness, be careful to not make a habit of it. The long term effects of too much caffeine takes quite a toll on the body.




4. Set a Schedule. Just as you would set your morning alarm, create one for getting to bed, or at least for beginning your nightly routine. Getting to sleep at the same time each night actually helps you feel much more alert and awake in the morning.


5. Reach for a POWER SNACK. Foods like berries, apples, and mixed nuts are low in sugar and high in protein and actually make you feel much more energized.


6. Have a cup of tea. A recent study shows that a cup of black tea actually aids in reducing daily stress. This will allow you to focus more on the task at hand rather on the worries that so often drag us down throughout the day.


7. Take a walk. Especially if your job consists of sitting at a computer desk inside all day, with little sunlight. There is nothing better than taking your lunch break outside and enjoying some sunlight and fresh air. The change of scenery mixed with getting your blood flowing will do wonders to your mood.


8. Skip the night cap. Having a nice glass of wine in order to "unwind" after a long day may seem like a good idea, but it can actually greatly disrupt your sleep cycle and leave you feeling more exhausted in the morning.

5 Ways to Get Rid of Dark Undereye Circles



1) Make Your Own Mixture

Mixing an equal amount of Olive Oil and Almond Oil makes an incredible result-based massage oil. Use this around your eyes twice a day for 2 weeks as a part of your daily routines (once in the morning and once at night) and watch the difference it will make! This is truly one of the most effective natural remedies for dark circles


2) All things cold...

Puffiness is caused by a ton of things. The biggest culprits tend to be a lack of sleep, and delicious salty foods. This can easily be cured with a few ice cubes wrapped in a facecloth. (If this is too cold for you, try a refrigerated dampened facecloth instead). Lay this over your eyes and let sit for up to 5 minutes at a time. Repeat as much as you'd like.

Note - this also works with cold cucumber slices...and even refrigerated potato slices!


3) Tea Bags!

After brewing tea (preferably a Green Tea or Chamomile) let them cool and lay them each on your eyes (just as you would a cucumber slice). Apply over your eyes for up to 10 minutes. This actually increases circulation while constricting the blood vessels and reducing discoloration!


4) Shop Around

When shopping for the best eye cream, seek out products that contain Vitamin K and Retinol. These ingredients are the best for repairing broken capillaries and give the best results!


5) Watch your Diet

Drink more water! Dehydration is often the cause for those pesky dark circles. Foods that are rick in Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Folic Acid and Iron can greatly help reduce them too. Sometimes it can be as simple as making a few changes to what you're eating that will fix the problem more than any product.


And Finally... Love your flaws, then conceal them. The best concealers to cover those dark blue-ish/purple circles will be yellow based in color. Stay away from any shades with a  hind of pink in them,a s this will only make them look worse!

Beauty Tip Wednesday

Is there anyone else who just adores this baby-doll soft look? This astonishingly beautiful technique can be recreated with just a few simple tricks and tips.



This picture helps a great deal, especially when all you can think is “Of course I want to look like that – but where do I start?”


But just in case you learn best with instructions...


After you've applied a light application of Concealer and or foundation, it’s time to play with those blushes, bronzers and highlighters.


I usually like to start with a light (not more than a shade darker than your skin tone) bronzer {C}, applied with a small brush, just gently sweeping from the center of the cheek, under the cheekbone and toward the earlobe. This gives a great effect on the shape of your face and really helps to show off those cheekbones!


For this look, a light peachy-pink shade is then applied (be sure to always choose the shade that’s best for your skin tone). 

Blush {B} looks best when applied directly on the plump “apple” of your cheek.


Follow this with a shimmery, shear highlighter {H}–just a swift application above the cheekbones, above and under the lips as well as down the bridge of your nose (some on your forehead is often a nice touch as well). Think of creating a t-shape along your entire face. And remember, if that time of the month has brought along some unwanted blemishes, it may be best to avoid the use of a highlighter, as they are used to accentuate an area.


A thin black line (Ireccommend a good gel eyeliner) applied just along your top lashes along with a nice coat of a lengthening mascara is ideal to complete this look.



We hope this helps and be sure to jot down any feedback you may have - We'd love to hear from you!
