3. Skincare

Hannah Blog

"Going back to school can be an extremely stressful time for kids, especially teenagers.  This time of life is crucial when it comes to developing habits that guarantee the best skin for years to come.  Because skin naturally produces oils that result in breakouts, it is important to use products that do not contain oil, and Tuscan Sun has some of the best on the market!"

- Hannah Stopper, Esthetician, Tuscan Sun Fairmont

Let’s face it: no matter who or how old you are, we are all prone to breakouts.  But that doesn’t mean we have to strut around with little red dots all over our faces.  No!  If you find that your medicine cabinets have as many empty face wash bottles as you have zits, and your sinks are an ocean of empty promises, it’s time to leave the punctuation on the page with a smattering of our favorite clinically proven acne-zapping skincare products, including Medibac by Dermalogica, SpaTeen by Pevonia, and, for all of our more mature acne-prone peeps, SkinCeuticals’ Blemish + Age Defense Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment.  While Tuscan Sun is proud to offer a vast selection of skin products in our boutique, these products are truly the best of the best when it comes to fighting blemishes with a guaranteed 1-2 punch!  And don’t forget about our terrific Tuscan Teen Fresh Faces Program, the highway to skincare success! 

Over a six-month period, the Tuscan Teen Fresh Faces Program includes two 30-minute skin treatments each month, such as extractions, exfoliating, and moisturizing.  All of this, combined with our PCA take-home skincare kit and makeup application consultation, is what makes this revolutionizing experience THE perfect confidence-boosting gift for that special teen in your life!

5. Relaxing Musts

Whether you’re a parent, teacher, or student, this time of the year can be super stressful. But have no fear, Tuscan Sun is here with a variety of relaxation sensations that are sure to send your stress floating away, such as our Farmhouse Fresh Total Swellness CBD Add-On Menu!

But before you embrace the relaxing and restorative powers of CBD with this one-of-a-kind collection of spa-mazing add-ons, let's dispel some of the common myths surrounding hemp and CBD.

Myth #1: Hemp Makes You High - FALSE
CBD is not an intoxicating substance. It has been deemed as extremely safe by medical and health professionals.  In reality, CBD neutralizes the effects of THC, the component of marijuana that is known for resulting in a “high."

Myth #2: All CBD Comes from Marijuana - FALSE
True CBD is found in marijuana; however, when used as a legal health supplement, it is derived from industrial hemp, which is legal under state and federal law for licensed farmers to grow under the auspice of the Department of Agriculture.

Myth #3: All CBD is Created Equal - FALSE
Quality CBD products are grown, extracted, and manufactured using very high standards. While there are many products on the market today, it is of utmost importance to conduct research and purchase products from a trusted company.

Not only can CBD products help brighten the look of skin and improve its moisturization but some scientific studies have concluded that CBD may also help sooth a variety of ailments, such as like chronic pain and anxiety.  So, what are you waiting for?  Book your own CBD-infused massage, today!
