For thirty-two years old, my skin is looking pretty good. So far everything is intact and thankfully my adult acne phase has passed (knocks on wood), but recently I’ve started to notice some crepey-ness and thinning of my skin, especially around my mouth. My laugh-lines seem deeper. The skin on my cheeks and around my eyes, thinner. I blame the sleepless nights of that first year postpartum and not to mention those long days sunbathing with baby oil (why didn’t anyone warn me?!), smoking cigarettes (guess it wasn’t so cool after all) and sleeping in my makeup (ugh). While thin crepey skin…

“It reeducates the muscles,” Valentina purred in her husky Russian accent as she pulled my cheek so high with a metal prong my chin started to tilt back towards her. She circled rhythmically along my lower cheek with the second prong. “This reeducation,” she continued, “teaches the muscles to lengthen (if contracted) or shorten (if sagging), and supports all of the secondary benefits seen from microcurrent.” Secondary benefits being: reduction in visible fine lines, lifting, improved firmness and tautness of skin.

I have been frequenting Adina Diaz’s Natural Feeling Spa for the past year and I can say at this point that things are serious. We’re talking committed, head over heels, locking it down, ball and chain, my ride or die, putting a ring on it, matching couple t-shirts – committed! I’m sure there will be others on this spa journey of mine seeing as I’m a beauty blogger and all, but they’ll be Lil Kim and Natural Feeling Spa will be my Faith Evans. (LOL, sorry for the Biggie Smalls reference. It’s been on my mind since I saw that P. Diddy’s…
