Facialates: A Workout for Your Face
It was a pleasure experiencing Haven Spa Senior Asthetician, Stalina Glot’s “Facialates”. As the name eludes, the 60-minute treatment serves as pilates for your face. Working not only to create more toned and firm facial muscles, the master facialist revealed the benefits the treatment has on lymphatic drainage, reviving skin and reducing puffiness. Giving you more reasons to rejoice, the facial therapy also rejuvenates the skin by triggering cells to produce more collagen. Glot have been working with Haven Spa for 20 years, and is passionate about helping people achieve beautiful skin. She notes that as our skincare needs vary based on the season, learning what works for you is crucial. LC: What inspired you to develop facialates?
