SPA JUNKIES will appreciate the Still Point’s thorough menu of holistic services from yoga, to acupuncture, to non-toxic manicures and pedicures. But farmers market junkies may be intrigued by the organic facial that uses natural and seasonal beautifiers from the neighboring Takoma Park Farmer Market to hydrate, exfoliate and moisturize.
The wholesome ingredients use in each facia are tailored to your individual skin, but because natural products benefit many skin types, “anyone can get the hometown works,” says owner Tori Paide. “Honey has great antioxidant properties, and it’s good for collagen production and combating age spots. The lactic acid in yogurt tightens skin and refines pores, and it’s high in natural antibacterial and anti fungal properties which are great for acne,” she notes. In addition to local honey and yogurt, The Still Point also incorporates herbs from its organic garden and seasonal fruits into its treatments.
Post-facial, your skin technician can give you a list of natural products to try at home. But if you prefer your lemon squeezed in tea for flavor instead of rubbed on your face as an exfoliant, peruse The Still Point’s collection of carefully selected beauty products available for sale. “All are handcrafted, organic, or 100 percent natural, and nothing is over $40,” Paide says. “They all work and are more convenient for some than using the honey out of your kitchen cabinet.”
