Faina European Day Spa has an awesome pedicure that will get your feet as smooth as silk. Owner, Faina Shafir, a skincare expert, has been in business for over 30 years. In the New York City spa industry, that is exceptional, so I knew that Faina must be doing something right. After overhearing rave reviews from a happy client on her way out post-facial, I was excited to have my pedicure.
The Crystal Mud Lavender Pedicure actually uses colored crystals that expand in water to create a thick substance that hydrates and moisturizes your feet. The more you move your feet around in the water, the more the liquid thickens, until it becomes the consistency of mud. After soaking in the Crystal Mud, my nail technician meticulously groomed my toenails. Then I enjoyed a relaxing exfoliation with a gentle Champagne Rose scented scrub. After the exfoliation, my nail technician moisturized my feet and legs while giving me a top-notch massage that was thorough and relaxing.
My nails were perfection after such meticulous grooming, and the pedicure lasted for weeks with just regular nail polish. Faina has a variety of pedicures that are perfect for super hydration, including the Grape Peel Pedicure that incorporates a Grape Pedi Peel Mask and Champagne Oil, and the Seaweed Pedicure, with a foot wrap and clay mask. You can’t go wrong with any of Faina’s pedicures.
We all want great skin, but unfortunately, we don’t all have it. Some of us have particular concerns and problem areas like acne, pigmentation, blemishes, wrinkles, etc. Most of these problems can be addressed with good skincare on a regular basis. Facials are a great way to not only take care of your skin problems, but they’re also great for preventative measures. Don’t expect a miracle from one facial. “Maintenance”, as one of our clients likes to call it, is the key. Getting facials regularly may seem pricey, but think of it as an investment on your skin. Get at least one facial a month, along with proper daily skin regimen, and you’ll see results. We offer Series of 5 Facials at a discount price. All you have to do is make sure you come in for it regularly after you purchase it, and you’re on your way to beautiful skin!
Happy First Day of Summer! Looks like we are finally getting some summer weather…YAY! While you’re having fun, don’t forget to take care of your skin!!! The sun can be very damaging and causes skin to age. No one wants that.
Here are some simple tips to keep your skin healthy this Summer:
1. Hydrate your body, as well as your skin.
2. Apply sunscreen before you leave home, and reapply if you’ll be in the sun for an extended period of time.
3. Don’t forget to apply lip balm on your lips, as the sun can easily cause it to be dry and chapped.
4. Exfoliate to keep your skin radiant for these skin baring months.
5. Moisturize after extensive sun exposure. Lotions with aloe or aloe gel is your best friend.

Bikini season will be here before you know it (believe it or not). We all have those problem areas we’re self-conscious about that exercising doesn’t fix. That is why Faina European Spa have created a series of NEW Body Wraps that are Anti-Cellulite, Firming, or Slimming. Body Wraps are effective non-surgical treatments that can be done on the full body or just to target your problem areas. It is highly recommended that you do a series of them to see results because it is not a miracle treatment. As in anything you want to maintain, you have to keep at it!
We have two of our NEW Body Wraps currently on our Spring Specials. Great opportunity to try it out for yourself! You can see all the different Body Wraps we offer under Body Treatments at www.fainaeuropeanspa.com
Exfoliating our lips is not a common practice, but it should be! The cold can be brutal on our lips making them dry and chapped. A major cosmetic brand came out with a line of lip scrubs recently. But if you’re not sure it’s a routine you can stick to, you can totally start by using a DIY lip scrub. You won’t need to spend any money because you probably have some of the ingredients in your pantry!
First you will need a tiny little container. You can either buy an empty travel size container, or you can be creative in reusing something you already have. Such as contact lens case, empty containers from product samples, mint tin, and sauce containers from takeout are great options. You need two basic ingredients: an oil and an exfoliant. Coconut or olive oil are commonly used. Sugar is a good exfoliant for lips.
You can research all kinds of recipes online. Measurements don’t have to be as precise as say, baking a cake. You can always add more of an ingredient to get the consistency you want. One easy one you can try is 1 tb coconut oil and 2 tbs sugar. Just mix together in a small bowl. The consistency should be like wet sand. You can adjust by adding more of either ingredient to get to the right consistency. To make it smell extra scrumptious you can add a few drops of vanilla extract and if you want a hint of color, add a couple drops of food coloring. Once you get to the consistency you like, try it on your lips! Apply on your lips and gently scrub away for a minute or two. Leave it on for a few minutes. Then wipe it off with damp paper towel or lick it off! Apply some lip balm to your newly soft pucker to finish.
