    Happy Customers

    The spa is small and the treatment is highly personalized, which I prefer to the big, busy "spa" type setting.

    TREAT YOURSELF TO HEALTHY SKIN: TEA TIME

                                High Tea at the Palm Court in the Drake Hotel

     

    * It's Tea Time *

    As soon as the weather turns chilly and the leaves turn orange I crank up the tea pot. I'm not a coffee drinker and I strive to limit my soda intake so tea is my go to for a caffeine fix and with all the healthy skin benefits, what's not to love!

    Sip your way to Healthy Skin with these lovely treats:

    Green, Black, White, & Oolong Tea: A cup of these caffeinated brews are brimming with polyphenols and flavonoids which are powerful antioxidants fending off skin damaging free radicals.

    Rooibos Tea: A caffeine free variety containing phenylpyretic acid, which can help to improve acne, psoriasis, and eczema. More on Rooibos HERE

    Chamomile Tea: A lullaby in a cup, Chamomile Tea has been used to treat insomnia for centuries, and we know how important beauty sleep is!

    Blooming Tea: Quite possibly the most beautiful way to drink tea! The bundled tea leaves bloom like a flower while steeping. Antioxidants are especially high in the Jasmine variety which also helps to boost the immune system and reduce blood sugar levels.

    Add a dash of: Blueberry, Raspberry, Pomegranate, Cucumber, Rose, or Lavender for even MORE antioxidant protection and soothing anti-inflammatory goodness.

    Turn Tea Time into Me Time by making it a mindfulness practice and see the benefits soar further...

    MINDFULNESS WHILE MAKING TEA

    Do each movement slowly, in mindfulness. Do not let one detail of your movements go by without being mindful of it. Know that your hand lifts the pot by its handle. Know that you are pouring the fragrant warm tea into the cup. Follow each step in mindfulness. Breath gently and more deeply than usual. Take hold of your breath if your mind strays. - Thich Nhat Hanh

     

    Fancy it up:

     

    * Go pinkies up style and indulge in High Tea at Palm Court in the Drake Hotel (A Chicago MUST even if you don't like tea!)

    * Pick up a fun tea strainer like Fred Mr. Tea Infuser and give loose leaf tea a try

    * Make like a Hip Tranquil Chick and host a Charitea Soiree for a good cause

    * Try a new type or flavor of tea when you travel, it's an inexpensive way to get a taste for your surroundings

    * Share the love and give the gift of tea and Healthy Skin this Holiday Season
