The month of August is a time when we could all use a skin refresh after the hot and sunny summer months filled with outdoor adventures and beach or poolside fun. For this month’s column, we spoke to Erica McDowell, owner of SKYN Lounge, to hear what they have to offer to get our skin glowing and gorgeous for the end of summer. 

Can you provide some background on SKYN Lounge and the history of the business?

SKYN Lounge opened more than 10 years ago with the vision of creating a boutique spa specializing in unique skin care services and products that were not available in this area. The idea was to create a diverse spa menu that catered to professionals on the go, busy moms and visitors from out of town needing some self-care.

Tell us about what SKYN Lounge offers and what sets it apart from other spas?

All of our treatments are customizable and catered to your specific skin care needs. If you are treating sun damage, acne, fine lines and wrinkles, or even redness, we can help! Our expert aestheticians treat all skin types with our diverse line of cosmeceuticals including Neocutis, iS CLINICAL, Luzern Labs, PCA Skin and OBAGI just to name a few. Most treatments, including our custom dermaplaning, facials and chemical peels, are performed in just an hour, allowing you to return right back to work. We offer complimentary makeup touch-ups as well, so you may go on about your busy day.   

What can a guest expect from an experience at SKYN Lounge if they’ve never been there before?

From the moment you walk in the door, you will be greeted by our friendly staff, refreshments and an opportunity to browse our retail boutique. Our beautiful spa treatment rooms include comfortable heated beds, aromatherapy, relaxing music and plush robes to wear during your service. Our seasoned aestheticians are equipped to handle any skin care need.  

Are there any new offerings at SKYN Lounge you’d like our readers to know about?

We have expanded our services to include multiple gentleman’s facials, full body waxing, teen and acne specific peels. Additionally, we added over 100+ new skincare products to our current product list totaling over 300 products! We ship to all 50 states offering fast free shipping and samples with all orders. Our new lifestyle retail space is complete with sunwear and suncare specific products, including Moncler sunglasses and contemporary jewelry pieces and gift items.
