They then apply Ilike Organic Skin Care's Rosehip Serum and Gel Mask for a cooling, fi rming eff ect. "This treatment allows extra time for targeted facial massage and/or extractions," explains spa manager Elizabeth Renard. The service ends with Ilike's Rosehip Whipped Moisturizer, a top seller in Allyu's retail area. Standout Soothers: Renard notes that rosehip is a nutritional powerhouse that's rich in vitamin C, beta- carotene and lycopene. "The Rosehip Gel Mask packs a concentrated dose of antioxidants and a touch of peppermint essential oil to deliver antiaging benefi ts and instant relief for sensitized skin," she adds. "For rosacea clients, the rosehip oil's high levels of vitamin C combined with its vascular benefi ts lead to a more balanced, fortifi ed complexion within a single treatment." Spa-cifi c Strategy: All of the spa's 75-minute specialty facials are equally priced, and in-room assessments help therapists determine what's best for clients at the time of service. This infl ammation-calming treatment is immensely popular. "Our estheticians upsell the facial by explaining the aforementioned benefi ts when clients mention sensitive or irritated skin, but it also books like crazy of its own accord," says the spa manager. 5 Psoriasis Redness Treatment (60 min./$ ) Hydralessence (60 min./$ 5) Fragile Skin Treatment Facial (60 min./$50) Vital Touch Spa Salon in La Habra, California Steps: For tough-to-treat psoriasis, owner and esthetician Pilar Kantounias often combines protocols from three treatments depending on the skin's condition. First, a gentle cleansing is followed by light exfoliation with skin-calming Yon-Ka Paris Gommage 305, after which compresses are applied. The service also employs the reparative, hydrating Masque No. 1, and LED light therapy with ultrasound to assist with deep penetration. Massage is performed with a blend of the brand's Serum Vital, Creme 83 and Creme 11, followed by a fi nal application of a serum, Creme 83 or Hydra No. 1 Creme for a moisture boost. Standout Soothers: Kantounias raves that Masque No. 1, utilized for both retail and backbar, relieves dryness overnight. Creme 11 calms skin thanks to arnica, chamomile and horse chestnut, while Serum Vital boasts lactic acids, calendula and vitamins A, C and E. Each product contains Quintessence, proprietary to Yon-Ka Paris, which combines lavender, thyme, geranium, rosemary and cypress oils to fi ght bacteria and reduce redness. Spa-cifi c Strategy: Kantounias encourages clients with psoriasis—or simply sensitive or reactive skin—to try this "amazing treatment," she says. "Psoriasis can't be cured, only controlled; but I have a 95 percent success rate and many happy clients who keep coming back—and refer us to their friends." She also recommends that they see a physician to help them quell their symptoms. Ilike Organic Skin Care Rosehip Gel Mask Yon-Ka Paris Hydra No. 1 Creme
