Beauty Products for an A+ Look

School is about to get back in session! Get ready with the best skincare and makeup tools to achieve that pulled-together look.

Mornings are busy and there is just so little time for makeup, which is why we’ve chosen some multi-tasking Merle Norman products that you need before Meet the Teacher Night.

Get an A+ look with these 5 products:

  1. Skin Refining CleanserFor all skin types. Cleanse and tone in one easy step! This formula polishes skin as it cleans. Rounded polybeads gently exfoliate leaving skin smoother and more refined while a special cleansing agent removes impurities. The water-soluble formula rinses off easily leaving skin clean and healthy-looking. 

  1. CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30. CC stands for complexion corrector, which is a multi-benefit complexion corrector that gives you the benefits of a skin care product, sunscreen and light foundation – all in one. After being in the sun all summer, you may need to update your foundation color. Our beauty experts can help you find the right foundation for your skintone.

  1. Lip Pencil Plus. Another 2-in-1 that we love is our versatile Lip Pencil Plush with ⅔ lip color and ⅓ lipliner. It provides full coverage and long-wearing color in a semi-matte finish.

  1. Lasting Cheekcolor. You need blush that lasts until the last bell rings right? This silky powder formula provides stay-true, fade-resistant color that glides on smoothly and blends easily.

  1. Wicked Lash Mascara. Oh the miracle of mascara! This is our award-winning mascara with an oversized brush for maximum impact leaving a beautiful curl with amazing volume.

With these five products, you can ditch the bulky makeup, look great and feel confident in the classroom. Visit anyone of our three locations (McAllen, Harlingen, or Brownsville) to purchase our top picks for you.

And just to show our teachers how much we appreciate their hard work, we are offering a special gift with any purchase when you present your teacher ID at checkout. This promotion is only available until August 7, 2016.

The fine salt pineapple scrub is formulated with fast dissolving Dead Sea rock salts and natural mineral oils, while the mask contains natural kaolin clay, which is used to draw out impurities while leaving the skin soft and renewed.

How to relieve neck and shoulder pain

When you’re experiencing neck and shoulder pain it can be so uncomfortable that you can’t focus on anything else. It gets difficult to focus on work, family or even activities that you enjoy like reading a book or completing a CrossFit WOD.

Neck and shoulder pain can be related to a number of things such as sleeping positions, not stretching before a workout, excessive computer use, bad posture or stress. Some of our clients with chronic neck and shoulder pain have found relief from stress and migraines with the help of consistent massage therapy.

Neck and shoulder massage therapy is a safe and effective treatment for common neck and shoulder pain. At Spa La Posada, our Neck & Shoulder Tension Relief Massage incorporates a variety of massage techniques to provide immediate release of muscle tension. Our therapists can also show you stretches that can be done on a daily basis to provide even further relief.

Our professional massage therapists recommend 25-minute treatments twice a week for the first 4 weeks to see results.

Benefits of neck and shoulder massage:

  • -Reduces pain and relieves pressure on nerves
  • -Increases neck and shoulder range of motion
  • -Promotes relaxation and reduces stress
  • -Helps prevent future strain
  • -Increases the level of oxygen in your blood leading to a decrease in muscle toxins
  • -Natural management of chronic pain

A 50-minute massage with a nourishing aromatherapy lotion that helps repair dry and damaged skin completes the relaxing treatment.

Hydrating Body Cocoon – $140
