For those that have battled the flu, you fight to get back on your feet by increasing your fluids, getting rest and trying any remedy that you may have come across. But did you know that there is such a thing as a Flu Recovery Facial that helps the recovery process! We chatted with Celebrity Esthetician Thai Morrison about this beauty must.
ATHLEISURE MAG: What is the flu facial?
THAI MORRISON: The Flu Recovery Facial consists of double cleansing with Kanvas Flower Power Oil Wash to restore hydration and moisture to the skin. This process is followed up with the Kanvas md Polished Emollient Cleanser to exfoliate dead skin cells while executing an amazing sinus trigger point face massage. The next step involves applying the Kanvas Glow Mask and allowing it to sit for 10-15 minutes. The mask contains essential vitamins, oils and collagen to hydrate and plump the skin. While the mask is penetrating the skin, Kanvas Plump Gold Eye Pads are applied under the eyes to relieve puffiness and dark circles. Steam is applied. After thoroughly rinsing the mask, the skin is infused with Avené Thermal Spring Water to calm and soothe the skin. This is followed up with Kanvas Glow Cream moisturizer and Kanvas md Antioxidant Sunscreen Cream. We are all aware that the flu wreaks havoc on the skin and this facial aids in restoring vitality to the skin from essential elements lost during the process of recovering from the flu.
AM: Who (besides someone getting or currently has the flu) would be a good candidate for this?
TM: The Flu Recovery Facial is an excellent hydrating facial for anyone needing a hydration boost to their skin care routine. While the Flu Recovery Facial is targeted toward clients who need immediate impactful hydration results, the Kanvas skin care line accommodates all skin types and can be customized for essential skin care needs based on skin type. This facial is a great way to recover and look amazing going back to work or returning to your normal activities.
AM: How did you come up with this?
TM: This concept was derived as a direct result of having the flu and saw that my skin was dehydrated due to not being able to really eat or drink much. I noticed that a lot of my clients were also having the same issues with their skin and I found this treatment to be most effective.
AM: What makes is so special?
TM: The Kanvas Flu Recovery Facial is special because it gives instant results and minimizes the damage to skin from the flu. Clients leave the spa with visible results of highly moisturized and
hydrated skin. The facial massage relieves congestion and results in sinuses opening up. The icing on the cake is that these products can be purchased for home use immediately to maintain the look.
AM: What else can you tell us about the facial?
TM: The facial takes roughly 45-55 minutes depending on the client’s skin condition upon arrival. The implementation is in the details and we always go above and beyond to ensure results. Some processes may take longer than others to achieve consistent results. Our clients love the facial and love our Kanvas high quality ingredient products that deliver results.
