C’est L’halloween!

It is coming down to crunch time – do you have your costume ready for Halloween?

Whether you buy your costume from a store, spend months painstakingly gluing/ glittering/crafting or piece something together from your closet a few minutes before you head out the door do not forget about the details. Accessories as well as hair and makeup can make or break a costume! How would Frankenstein look without the face paint or neck bolts? We’re not sure we would believe you as Medusa if your hair wasn’t wild with snakes coiled through, or as Cleopatra if you weren’t rocking some heavy black eyeliner!!

If it’s hair, makeup or both our talented makeup artists and hair stylists can help you create the perfect looks to tie your costume together!

This classic makeup can easily be transformed into a pinup look with longer winged liner and false lashes. Bold lips are a must!

Halloween inspired hair. You don't need to be wearing a costume to get into the spirit of Halloween!

Autumn Skin Care Blues

Time to pack up the sundresses and revisit your faithful fall classics – boots and sweaters! Just as we need to change our wardrobe to suit the cooler months we also have to take a look at what products we are using on our skin.

A common issue we hear this time of year is skin looking dull and dehydrated. If you are anything like us you probably tried to squeeze in every bit of summer you could – long days in the sun and late nights on boardwalk patios.

Autumn is a great time of year to treat yourself to a facial. It will help balance your skin and prep it for the colder months. We know not everyone has the time to visit us, so we’ll guide you to some things you can do to pamper your skin at home to help it glow again!

The first thing you need to do is exfoliate. This will get rid of the dry, flaky skin sitting on the surface. You need to get rid of the dull skin before you move on to the next step which is to moisturize. Hydrated skin is radiant and looks great on everyone!

Aveda’s Tourmaline Skin Care is amazing – it uses tourmaline (which is a crushed gemstone) to gently exfoliate the skin and the Tourmaline Hydrating Creme feels so luxurious. Once a week (or as you feel it’s needed) you can treat your skin with a bit of extra TLC, the Intensive Hydrating Masque is a favourite around Element5; it’s like 8 glasses of water for your skin!

Speaking of water – make sure you are drinking plenty of it. Keeping yourself hydrated will keep your skin feeling and looking fabulous, no matter what time of year!

Walk For Water is Tomorrow!

Please join us for Element 5 Spa’s FIRST charity walk! Our group is walking 6km through uptown Saint John, tomorrow (April 29th), meeting at 1pm in the Atrium of Market Square. 100% of the funds raised will be donated for Local Clean Water Protection.
In the last two years, thanks to Aveda Earth Month Fundraising, The Nature Trust of New Brunswick has been able to initiate the following projects:
- Conservation planning on Lower Saint John River
- Funds put into protecting 33 nature preserves
- Education presentations about the importance of land protection
- Also, a NEW iPhone tool – the Deep Map Eco iPhone application. Deep Map Eco allows people to access information, resources, and organizations about how to reduce our impact on the environment!
Throughout this month of April, Aveda’s Earth Month campaign has been seeking to raise $4.5 million for awareness, and protection, of clean water. Please drop into Element 5 Spa to register for tomorrow’s walk!
Pledge packs are still available at Element 5 Spa for $10. Hours today are 9-6.

Earth Month

Earth Month at Element 5!
Earth Month came from Earth Week, which grew out of Earth Day. This now known day of global environmental awareness was first established during the ‘70’s, in the United States. In its beginnings, Earth Day rallied organizations together raising money, and awareness to protect natural resources. The first Earth day was so successful, as explained by Earth Day Canada, that as a result “the United States established the [first] Environmental Protection Agency, to research and monitor environmental issues and enforce environmental laws”. April is Earth Month, and Earth Day is April 22nd.
Once again, Element 5 is inviting everyone to join us in fundraising to protect clean water locally, and internationally! Last year, with the help of our community, Element 5 raised over $11,000. This money was donated to local organizations, and Global Green Grants that funded clean water projects. The spa’s successful efforts allowed Element 5 owner, Jenny Scott, to have had the incredible opportunity of travelling with Aveda to Tilwari, India. Tilwari is a village where Global Green Grants have funded the construction of new, clean water wells.
JOIN US for Earth Month 2012 in the following ways:
- Donate $20 and receive and light the way candle. 100% of the funds raised through purchases of Aveda’s light the way candles help protect clean water. This fundraising effort has been on-going for the last five years. During which time, $4.6 million has been raised in Global Greengrants for water protection.
