Talking fall skincare and luxury spa treatments with Paula Kaiser of Elizabeth Grady Spa

Posted

Paula Kaiser started her career in television news more than 20 years ago, winning several New England Emmys along the way. Tired of the grind, she shifted careers to focus on her other passion, skincare. She’s been with Elizabeth Grady for eight years, and has owned the Seekonk spa for three.

Let’s talk about how the transition from summer to fall affects your skin.
When there is a change of season with temperature, humidity, allergens, toxins, etc, it is super beneficial to take care of skin and sometimes even change up our skincare routine. It is the perfect time to exfoliate and get it ready to accept deep hydration by way of peels or a hydrating facial. Summer can be drying because of sun damage and chlorine. To restore a youthful glow I would recommend treatments such as our Pro Peel with our Hydrating Stem-Cell Mask, or a Microdermabrasion along with our Intensive Rehydration Facial.

What service do we have to try for fall?
This time of year a lot of clients choose our Aromatic Harvest Facial for not only the benefits this facial offers, but for the aromas of pumpkin and cranberry included in the experience.

Which Elizabeth Grady skincare products do you really love?
Our Anti-Aging Eye Creme and our Triple Peel Pads are among my favorites. Anyone over the age of 20 really should be using an eye cream. And here’s a little tip: I use our eye cream around my mouth for pesky lines that want to try to develop there. The Triple Peel Pads are a great choice for exfoliation and they are wonderful for brightening the skin. These pads are a treatment, so I only use them a couple of times a week to help promote cellular turnover.

If you were going to treat yourself to a spa afternoon, what services would you have?
There is no doubt I would include a full body massage as well as a facial. Elizabeth Grady is celebrating it’s 40th year and we have become so well known for our skincare that our clients sometimes forget that we offer massage as well. Our therapists are highly skilled and take each client’s individual needs into consideration before beginning their massage.

We hear you’ve got an event coming up for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The Elizabeth Grady salons of Seekonk and Dartmouth will be participating in Survivors Day on Sunday, October 4 at the Casino at Roger Williams Park in Providence. The event is for all cancer survivors, family and friends to gather and celebrate life. Aimee, one of our massage therapists, will be volunteering to do chair massages and Kelsie, an esthetician, is also volunteering to talk about how skin care can change a dull complexion after treatment and also benefit the soul!
