Ideal for spray-tan prep or removing dead skin cells and winter buildup, hydrafacials combine key components of standard facials—exfoliation and extraction—with hydration and photolight therapy. “Hydrafacials are hugely detoxifying treatments that target sun damage, wrinkles, oily skin, and redness,” says Jeffrey Caron of Studio 411. The 45-minute procedure is relatively painless and feels like a cool toothbrush running across your skin. Plus, your skin will look cleaner and brighter right away without pain and redness.
At Home: To maintain your new, healthy skin, or before a spray tan, Caron says body scrubs are necessary. Try Juvenate Body Scrub by Comfort Zone ($49)—the chia seed–infused scrub massages into skin to remove the winter buildup. Pair the scrub with Juvenate Body Cream ($65), it’s activated with caffeine, which tightens skin and provides an antioxidant boost.
Book an Appointment: Hydrafacial treatments start at $185. 411 Cedar Lake Rd. S., Mpls., 612-374-1477, studio411salonmn.com.
