Your Beauty Guide to Holiday Parties

Hey everyone! This is Annette over at Paradise On Columbia Med Spa. I handle all of the marketing for the spa. You may sometimes see me at the front desk after your service or I may appear on an occasional Facebook Live. We decided to utilize our platform online and plan to release a few blog posts every month. I am not an aesthetician, so I will leave those posts to Cher and Marisa. Nor am I a doctor, so any in-depth medical posts will be left up to Dr. Mike. I just hold a BA in Communication from Southeastern Louisiana University and a Starbucks Gold Card, so it’s safe to say that I will just stick to the lifestyle posts.

We cannot believe 2018 is coming to a close already. It has been a wonderful year for us at Paradise On Columbia and we are ready for 2019 to start. As we approach the end of the year, we are reminded of all that is important to us: family, friends, coworkers, employees, our pets, the food on our tables, clothes on our backs and the roof over our heads. Make sure to give more than receive this Christmas season; a simple “hello” or a smile is all that it takes.

Now that I hopefully have your attention, I want to bring you to the main point (and fun in my opinion) of this blog post. It’s officially Christmas time which means Christmas parties have officially begun! I want to share with you some tips and services that are perfect for this special occasion!


This should be a no-brainer, but the #1 thing you should take away from this whole post is this: Wash your face before you go to bed. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT sleep with your makeup on. I am guilty of doing it too and immediately regret it the next day when Mount Everest appears on my face. That is the last thing you want to have before a big party.


If you do have a breakout overnight, this “magic in a tube” is your go-to product.
It has to be one of my favorite ZO products in this line!
It’s small enough to carry in your purse and provides a quick conceal for any unwanted blemishes.
We have them in stock at the spa or online!








Speaking of blemishes, if you can schedule a quick HydraFacial treatment before your party, your face will thank you. It only takes 30 minutes and will leave your skin looking healthy for days. All it takes is 3 steps! It consists of cleansing your face followed by a light peel. Next, the device extracts any debris from your pores and immediately nourishes the skin with intense moisture. Lastly, it will saturate your skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow.


This quick service is perfect to get days or hours before your party. This simple exfoliation technique shaves off the peach fuzz on your face and leaves your skin feeling baby soft. The added bonus…your makeup goes on smoother. It’s a win-win!


If you are short on time, the ZO Stimulator Peel is perfect! This peel will leave you bright, light and tight afterward. We refer to it as a lunchtime peel, or the BLT, because there is no downtime associated with this one. It’s perfect to get a few hours before your party starts! Just make sure you stop using Retinol seven days beforehand.


Everyone’s favorite service! If you’re thinking about getting Botox before your next party, make sure to book your appointment now! We offer Botox every day and have random specials every month. Our next Botox Special is January 17, 2019 for $9/unit (reg. $12).


Lips, Cheeks, Lines…oh my! If you want volume in your lips and cheeks, fillers are the way to go! We have a multitude of fillers for all areas. If you’re thinking about getting fillers before your next party, book soon!


PERK for Lips gently exfoliates, lightly plumps and boosts hydration in your lips. PERK is a HydraFacial treatment and is perfect to receive before a party since its effects last approximately 30 days. We do the initial treatment and you take home the rest of the serum to apply as needed. This can be done as its own service or a part of your HydraFacial.


Massage…the standard relaxation service known all over the world. Amy is our massage therapist who will make sure you’re relaxed before your party – and after! We offer many types and durations. We also offer cupping!


One of my favorite services at the spa is our Paradise Facial! I recommend booking one before all of the craziness starts! It’s a simple facial that will leave you feeling relaxed and ready for the festivities.
