I’ve Been Thinking About Your Dad…


Greetings Moonstone Friends and Fans,

Here’s the deal, Rochell and I are such perfectionist that we can’t help to think about your Dad’s pores and his skin. Did you know, male pores are 20% larger than the female? Now, we’ve you thinking about the potential grime and dirt that may be living within those pores, aka. blackheads.

Yes, it’s true men love facials too. At Moonstone, we’ve conducted enough facials to tell you that every guy who ends up getting a facial tells us how much they enjoy the steam towels and massaging of the face. Facials do more than just relax Dad, a gentleman’s facial is formulated to help with dry skin, razor burn, skin sensitivity, and dullness. So do something different this Father’s Day and book your favorite guy a facial with us or purchase a gift certificate. If you want to extend the love beyond a gentleman’s facial, Jeannie, our massage therapist is also available for massages. Let us not forget our recent graduates, they’ve worked hard so let’s polish them up with the Moonstone Signature Facial.


Avoid the Burn – Protect Yourself

Sunscreen is your friend, say it with me. The problem with sunscreen are the choices and options. Do I go with 15 SPF or 100 SPF? Do I use a different one for my face and my body? What’s safe for me and my family? Do I have to reapply throughout the day?

Ideally, you should choose a sunscreen for your face and your body. The facial’ skin tends to be more sensitive and requires a bit more protection than the skin on your body. You want to choose a sunscreen that offers both UVA/UVB protection. The label should read “Broad Spectrum” which means it offers both UVA/UVB coverage.Regarding the SPF range, EWG recommends SPF value in the range of 30 to 50 for an adequate sunburn protection, even for the most sensitive skin. Reapplying sunscreen plays a factor in coverage, make sure you always read the labels and follow directions as suggested even for water resistant sunscreen.

Moonstone is proud  to share that PCA offers both body and facial sunscreen with the Skin Cancer Foundation seal of approval. What’s even more exciting to share PCA has just launched and we now carry PCA Sheer Tint Broad Spectrum Spf 45. It’s their first tinted sunscreen that acts like a primer or used as stand alone and it’s water resistant. Perfect for the summertime. For now until June 10th, when you purchase two of your favorite facial or body sunscreen, you will receive a free beach bag. Quantites are limited.
