Look Beautiful This Holiday Season!


Do you have holiday parties, family gatherings or work events to attend this month? To help you look your very best this season, you can select a variety of treatment options that will show off your flawless complexion at every occasion!

Check out these results-driven facial treatments so you can have beautiful, glowing skin for the holidays:

Chemical Peels. This treatment works below the epidermis to reduce skin damage and is a great way to exfoliate your skin and enhance its texture and tone. Depending on your specific skin concern, there are various types of chemical peels for you to choose from. Your esthetician can help you select the chemical peel that is best for you.

Microdermabrasion. This non-invasive exfoliation treatment removes dead skin cells and damaged skin to expose the healthy, radiant skin underneath. The procedure also firms and tones the skin and can be targeted to specific skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and sun damage.

Botox. This is a purified protein molecule that is used for cosmetic purposes. These series of injections work by interrupting the messages sent from the brain to the muscles via nerves to stop the muscles from contracting. This enables the skin to stay smooth, wrinkle-free and more youthful-looking. It’s most commonly used around the eyes and between the eyebrows to reduce frown lines.

Fillers. This is an injectable dermal filler for moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles. It’s also used to treat the lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). It adds a smoother appearance and temporary volume to the skin. Results are usually seen in just one treatment and can last from 9 to 12 months.

Let us here at Lasala Spa Services of Tucson, AZ help you put your best face forward this holiday season! Reserve your complimentary consultation today so we can recommend the best treatment combination for your skin.

7 Easy New Year’s Resolutions


Eating right and maintaining a healthy weight is something that should last throughout your lifetime instead of something initiated just once a year! Don’t wait until January 1st to begin planning your healthy eating resolutions – start doing (and sticking to) these seven New Year’s resolutions today:

  1. Write Down Your Goals

You can attain your long-term goals to lose a certain number of pounds by setting short-term goals for yourself. It’s very important to establish realistic short-term goals so you can achieve different ones every few weeks. Don’t completely deprive yourself of the foods you like to eat or it will backfire on you. Instead, focus on the healthy foods you will eat and allow yourself to indulge in your favorite foods in small amounts once in a while.

  1. Take The Time To Do Your Research

Don’t begin your New Year’s resolutions without an idea of what kinds of healthy foods, recipes and diet plans you’re going to embark on. Ignore any supposed quick weight-loss schemes that always seem to come out after January 1st, so you’re not tempted to try them. Most of them don’t work anyway and some of them can be dangerous to your health.

  1. Assign Yourself An Accountability Partner

It’ll be much easier to stick to your New Year’s resolutions if you tell someone about them and they do it along with you. Whether it’s a friend, a spouse or a family member, they can help motivate you to stay focused on your short-term goals for long term success. The best part: you can motivate each other and pick each other up if either one of you falls off the wagon!

  1. Motivate Yourself With A Mantra

At some point during your journey, you’re going to have a bad day; and that’s okay.  Most people do. Whenever you’re feeling down about your weight or about the way you’ve been eating, it’s very important to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and continue onward. Remember, tomorrow is a brand new day! Create a motivational mantra that you repeat to yourself anytime you’re feeling discouraged; it’ll help inspire you and get you back on track again.

  1. Measure Your Success

There are many apps available – such as MyFitnessPal, Fooducate, Fitbit and Lose It! – that will help you keep track of your progress if you’re trying to lose weight and meet your short-term goals.

  1. Purchase Things You’ll Need

Buy a reusable water bottle to tote around with you if your goal is to drink 8 cups of water per day. If one of your goals is jogging in the morning or taking a power walk after dinner, buying a new pair of good quality sneakers will help you to achieve that particular goal. Now is the time for you to purchase the things that you’ll need so you can follow through with your short-term goals.

  1. Hire Outside Assistance

You may find that you’re more likely to stick to your short-term goals with a little help from a dietician or weight loss professional, as they can assist you with staying on track with your healthy diet and exercise plan. Reserve a consultation with Lasala Spa Services, 520-795-3341 of Tucson, AZ so we can give you suggestions to help you succeed in achieving your Skincare New Year’s resolutions!

Glow, glow, glow!

day2Without regular attention, dry skin can lead to cracking and bleeding. Taking hot baths/showers and using harsh cleansers exacerbate dry skin.

Keep skin looking youthful and smooth by reducing (and eliminating) chapped and itchy skin with these suggestions:

Washing your skin with lukewarm water with the proper cleanser helps to avoid stripping essential oils from your skin that it needs to stay soft and supple.  *Visit us for PCA Skincare

Moisturizing immediately after your shower or bath (while your skin is still damp) helps to seal that dampness into your skin.

Choosing the correct moisturizer will soothe your dry, itchy skin while helping it to retain more moisture. *Speak to our Estheticians for a thorough skin analysis.

Protecting your skin from the elements will help keep your skin soft and smooth while preventing chapping and flaking.

Drinking more water and eating foods with high water content provides your skin with much-needed hydration from the inside out.

Exfoliating your face and body regularly helps to slough off dead skin cells so moisture can penetrate the epidermis more effectively. *Enjoy our facials and medical grade chemical peels to exfoliate

Using an effective sunscreen with a high SPF this time of year is important due to the sun’s rays being just as harsh as it is during the summer months. *protect yourself all year long with our PCA and Coola Suncare

8 Tips To Avoid Holiday Weight Gain


The holiday season is challenging for everyone! Staying on track with healthy eating choices can seem like an impossible task, especially during this time of year. But, excess pounds don’t just disappear once January rolls around … and you don’t want to start the new year with having to lose weight, do you?

Well, you don’t have to! Follow these eight tips to keep your weight down while enjoying tasty holiday treats this season:

  1. Weigh Yourself Twice Per Week – That’s often enough for you to make sure you’re staying on track, but not too often that you take all the joy out of sampling your favorite holiday treats. Step on the scale first thing in the morning, when your stomach is empty.


  1. Get Your Groove On In The A.M. – Morning exercise can help ensure that you stick to better eating habits throughout the day. Studies show that when a person works out in the a.m., they not only move more for the rest of the day, but they’re also less tempted to eat high-calorie foods.


  1. Be Very Selective – Whatever type of meal venue it is, make note of everything that is being offered first before you load your plate with foods you normally wouldn’t choose. Picking only the food items you truly want and having them in moderation will help you feel more satisfied and you’ll be less likely to give in to late night cravings.


  1. Fit Your Workouts In – If you can’t get to your favorite yoga class or find time for the treadmill, fit in a few minutes of exercise any way you can. Just 10-15 minutes of jumping rope or dancing each day can help you maintain your fitness level as well as enable you to stay limber.


  1. Keep That Sweet Tooth In Check – Practice the “3 Bite Rule” to satiate your palate and keep calories at bay; you’ll experience that first delicious taste which is amazing, the satisfying middle bite and then a lingering third taste.


  1. Take Your Time – We know, it’s hard to do this when you’re hungry and the food tastes delicious. But chewing your food slowly gives your brain time to receive the message from your digestive system that you’ve had enough to eat.


  1. Limit Alcoholic Consumption – It’s easy to get carried away with drinking when you’re in a fun and festive environment, but limiting yourself to three alcoholic beverages for the entire evening will save you hundreds of calories.


  1. Check With A Wellness Professional – You’ll be provided with great tips to stay fit this season!


Self-Improve For On The Move


There are hundreds of ways to improve yourself!

Moving around and staying active are key to improving your productivity and your quality of life. This is especially important this time of year as children have moved from relaxed summer mode to busy school routines.

Here are some things you can do for self-improvement:

Eat healthier. Make it a point to eat smart. Let breakfast kick-start your day and don’t eat too late at night.

Get better-looking skin. You must treat your skin. If you have problem areas, you need to address them. We can help at Lasala Spa Services, call 520-795-3341. Serving Tucson

Regain your shape. A weekly exercise routine along with spa treatments will help you maintain a healthy weight and figure.

Improve your image. Yes, image is everything. How you look and act is how others will perceive you.

Also, start the day by waking up early. With an already-active mindset, you’ll be ready to tackle whatever is thrown at you.

Next, have a weekly exercise routine. It’s easier to remain motivated when you know what to do and you’ll be in better physical shape. Don’t despair though – you can mix up your exercises! Utilize a pick-me-up if you need one. There are plenty of mentors and coaches available out there to help you achieve your goals, or ask a friend.

You can also challenge yourself for 30 days. This time frame is long enough – but not too long – to act, review and analyze.

Meditation is also important. You can’t disregard your mind and its need to stay calm. A relaxed persona will allow for better sleep, too.

Finally, and most importantly, incorporate the spa into your weekly plans. Whether you’re in need of a facial, pedicure or manicure, putting it on the calendar ensures that it will get done.

Facial Treatments


                                                                                                       * Keep on the lookout for our new Facial Menu!

“I feel good now, I knew that I would.”

 As if you didn’t know, facial treatments offer soothing relaxation. You’ll feel healthy and radiate confidence! There are numerous other benefits of facial treatments.

Start with increased circulation and blood flow. Poor circulation can lead to numerous health problems, including cardiovascular disease.

Next, the skin obviously isn’t ignored. Creams, aromatherapy and oils moisturize the skin; and they smell good!

Then, there’s always-important peace of mind and contentment. Who doesn’t want less mental stress or anxiety?

Those benefits are right off the top of the list.

Digging a little deeper (literally, in some cases), facial treatments mean less acne scarring, visible wrinkle reduction, even skin tone and unclogged pores.

Dark spots and sun-damaged areas are targeted and dull skin is transformed, leaving a glowing result. Any advanced signs of aging are set back to a more youthful state.

Facial benefits also calm and soothe sensitive skin, provide therapy for pre-cancerous conditions, rejuvenate, are a more-effective daily care and provide a fresh and healthy glow.

Cleansing For Self-Improvement


Your recipe for Self-Improvement Month is Detoxification. While your body is equipped to handle most toxins, it can be inhibited when you skimp on nutrients and proper hydration. That’s where cleansing comes in.

A detox is a lifestyle change to clear your body of toxins. It can be a permanent or temporary change.

Here’s one recipe to detox your body:

  1. Choose the right foods. The key is organic vegetables and fruits over fast food and other processed foods.
  2. Investigate different diets. Options include a raw alkaline diet, juice diet and vegan diet.
  3. Exercise and mediate. Sweating releases toxins; meditation reduces stress. Simple as that.
  4. Drink lots of water. The most valuable tool removes waste. Add lemon or cucumber if you get bored.
  5. Clear the air: Invest in a high-quality air purification device or some house plants.
  6. Consider a complete body detox: Organ-focused. Especially rewarding if you have patience.

Get Ready For School

Tips for Going Back to School


Preparing for the school year is a perfect time to make sure your kids are looking their best.

  1. For starters, getting a haircut or a new hairstyle is a must. Then, new clothes, new shoes and a new backpack. If your child doesn’t have to wear uniforms, it’s important to know what’s “in” and what is not. Make sure you check out the latest style before you go shopping.
  2. Teenagers want to have clear skin. You, as a parent, should want to help your teenagers to have self-confidence. If they are experiencing problems with acne, it’s best to get a jump-start on controlling it. Don’t wait until the acne is out of control. Make an appointment right away with the spa, 520-795-3341, to discuss specific facial options and treatments.

Make facials part of your child’s “getting-ready-for-school” experience. Not only will they have more confidence, but they will also feel and look better.

  1. School supplies. Many schools give you a list of what the kids will need for school supplies. Do not over spend! Buy only what they ask for.
  2. Remember a nutritious and delicious diet takes planning and commitment. Think ahead and plan healthy meals for your kids. Include vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Toss in some lean protein, nonfat dairy, healthy fats, and an occasional dessert so they are good to go.

For beverages, it’s water and more water. It will keep them hydrated throughout the day and doesn’t put on unwanted pounds.

We invite you to reserve a consultation and let the spa help you come up with a healthy plan for the entire family!
