Ritual Self Care Facials
Calling these sessions facials is my closest approximation to naming them in a way that people will know what I’m referring to. They go far beyond what I learned to do in school 20+ years ago and far beyond the norm of what a facial is. With a focus on the skin of the face I take a whole system approach to working with you.
My facials address all ages, skin types, and conditions ranging from acne to aging, from rosacea to hyper pigmentation. The product lines I use are plant based, sustainable and organically grown; free from petroleum, synthetic fragrance and the myriad of toxic ingredients found in most skin care products. All RSC facials are customized to address your unique needs with products and techniques that best suit your skin + self and work with your goals.
All facials include these elements :

More About My Facials:
These skin care sessions go far beyond the surface of the skin, allowing your radiant beauty to shine through. Using rhythmic, compassionate touch, your mind is calmed, circulation is supported and the immune system is strengthened by stimulating lymph flow, revealing vibrant, healthy skin and leaving dull, lackluster skin behind.
I have experience working with people during and after cancer treatment. Most chemotherapy and radiation treatments have side effects that change the skin and many times bring about sensitivity, dryness and inflammation. The facials, massages and products I offer are safe, nurturing, protective and calming help for these times. To learn more about my approach to oncology services visit this page. All facials and massages can be customized for people living with cancer.

How is sugaring different from waxing?
Sugaring is an ancient method of hair removal that uses a paste of sugar, water and lemon juice. This strip-free method is safe and effective for all skin types, and is applied against the natural direction of growth, so that when the hair is removed it is less likely to break. This ensures more successful hair extraction, fewer broken hairs, and longer-lasting results. It also enables the extraction of shorter, finer hair than is possible with other methods.
- As effective as waxing, but also conditions skin.
- Does not damage healthy tissues.
- Requires much lower temperatures so you will never be burned.
- Fewer ingredients.
- Hair is removed in the natural direction of growth, minimizing irritation and inflammation.
- Promotes healthy cell regeneration, which evens skin tone, softens tissues and reduces impurities and blemishes.
