Getting into the spa may seem like a daunting task for the time being. Read on for a new way to access spa-quality skincare without leaving the house.
Skin feeling tired and worn out from being stuck at home? Missing your esthetician but aren’t sure when you’ll be able to get in for those missed appointments? Then you may want to check out the Jurlique Home Facial program.
“The Jurlique Home Facial program is a way for the stuck-at-home consumer to get a professional skincare consultation or virtual spa facial under the guidance of a licensed esthetician who uses Jurlique Organic Skincare,” explains National Education Manager for Jurlique International Paula Provenzano.
The inspiration for this at-home program was inspired by the current coronavirus pandemic.
“In a perfect world, when you want a professional skincare consultation or relaxing spa facial, or even a medical-grade facial, you would go to a spa or medspa,” says Provenzano. “The current restrictions on those types of services make that a challenge but, we also know that spa services were never available everywhere. So, the Jurlique Home Facial program is a way to access those types of services anywhere.”
The Jurlique brand is based in Australia, but Provenzano works at the company’s National Education Manager and has worked to bring its services and offerings to the Queen City.
Provenzano grew up in Northern Kentucky and currently lives in Cincinnati. The prime location of the city allows her easy access to both coasts and everything in between.
However, since travel has been shut down for a while, the company decided to begin offering the next best thing to a spa: virtual facials with skincare kits that can be shipped or picked up curbside.
The virtual facial program offered by Jurlique is a unique one.
“The beauty of this experience is that you can make it whatever you want it to be,” says Provenzano. “For example, many of our home facial clients take a glass of wine into their bathroom, lock the door, and have a dedicated hour of ‘me time.’ Others invite all their girlfriends and make it a party. I know that at least one of our partners is using the virtual facial platform as a fundraiser.”
Ultimately, the experience is a collaboration between the esthetician who plans and guides the experiences and the personal needs of the client.
Provenzano says that the virtual facial program is something that may not have ever been born if the coronavirus pandemic had never come about. “Let’s face it, the real thing is better,” she says. “But, we are finding that it fills a need for the restless consumer.”
Provenzano says that those who already have a spa or skincare professional they like going to can check to see if their service provider is offering virtual services. If virtual services aren’t available, she says that you can go to the Jurlique website and find a provider through the Spa Locator tab.
The company’s ability to innovate looks to be something that will help boost their offerings once the pandemic has ended. Provenzano says that the virtual program fills a need that will always exist. “Think of the busy new mom who cannot take the time for a full spa visit – this could be a nice interim treat until she can have a full day of beauty,” she adds.
