When I booked the Glow Facial at Earthsavers, I knew that this facial was going to be something serious!  If you haven’t figured it out by now, I will try almost anything. Well, as long as it doesn’t put my life in danger!

I’ll be 40 in 2 months, I know, it’s hard to believe, but I will. Y’all know “black don’t crack.” Seriously. I talk about self care all of the time and for me, taking care of my skin is super important. The Glow Up was real.

Before receiving any type of service or treatment, it’s important to ask questions. I needed to know what to expect. The Glow Facial uses LED light therapy. That’s right, LED light. LED is non-invasive and painless. 

LED stands for light emitting diode. Infrared lights in different spectrums warm the skin and penetrate deep to achieve different benefits. LED stimulates collagen production and reduces inflammation. It’s great for anyone interested in anti-aging and is also healing for sensitive and rosacea type skin.

The facial started with cleansing, then exfoliation via dermaplaning. There’s a certain level of trust that comes with allowing someone to scrape away layers of skin on your face with a razor blade! Dermaplaning removes dead skin and hair. Next is the LED light. I have to admit that I kind of started to freak out when Sarah put the goggles on me. If you can remember, I have a serious issue with keeping my eyes closed! Y’all, when she turned on that LED light, it was so bright! My eyes were closed but it was as if I was staring at the Sun! So weird! In my mind I’m wondering if my skin was frying and if I was going to go blind!

LED light is different from UV light. Amber light targets fine lines, wrinkles, and helps to stimulate collagen. Light and dark red are anti-inflammatory and increase blood flow. These types are great for rosacea, eczema, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. 

Sarah and I started talking and my anxiety quickly subsided. The brightness was still there but it didn’t bother me. I did feel warmth, but nothing like burning. After about 20 minutes, the light went off and I was done! The hand and arm massage was an added bonus. The Glow Up was Real!

Bous you have to experience this for yourself! This service is ideal for special events when you want to look your absolute best.
