Glamour at the Grand! Note from Carmen


Hello Grand Beauties, aren’t you loving what’s going on in beauty?

It’s like the designers have just gone mad and have given us permission to put everything and anything together and there aren’t many rules.

We can wear white in winter for example, but it has to be the right fabric and cut.

Vintage Looks and Layering

One of my favorites this season are vintage looks which I think we can all probably dig something out of our closets. Lol:)

Layering with different shapes and textures is also huge this season, mismatched plaids, floral prints,and the look we all love, the nice girl look with […]

Vibraderm or Microdermabrasion?

Vibradermabrasion (Vibraderm) is a mechanical exfoliation method similar to microdermabrasion only we don’t use any crystals.

Vibraderm has certain advantages: lower incidence of side effects (such as skin irritation) and useful enhancement (Infusion Paddle) allowing to apply topical skin care formulas during the exfoliation process.

Similar to microdermabrasion, Vibraderm is generally believed to be the most effective for early signs of aging and minor skin lesions. In particular, Vibraderm is often recommended for mild acne scaring, uneven pigmentation, poor skin texture, fine lines and dull skin.

Vibraderm causes less skin irritation […]

Renew Your Body With a “Grand” Exfoliation!

Exfoliating your skin on a routine basis helps to eliminate dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface.

Dead cells accumulate more as we age, due to slower skin regeneration.  A good exfoliation regimen depends on skin type and product. For drier more sensitive skin, one to two times a week is sufficient. For more oily and less sensitive skin, two to three times a week works well.

May is Melanoma Month

Rita-Claudia Schrager
Aesthetician and Spa Director

The Grand’s May Event will be something special.

Since May is the month that highlights the increasingly serious threat of Melanoma, The Grand will feature a special program highlighting the threat of skin cancer. This is particularly relevant to the State of Florida. While we all appreciate the beautiful sunshine we are often less informed about the damage from the sun which causes Melanoma.

The Grand will hold an Event focusing on the threat of Melanoma on Wednesday, May 23rd from 5-8 PM.

We have the pleasure of featuring our Medical Director Dr. […]

Nude is In! Nail Polish Trends for 2012

What’s hot for 2012?

Believe it or not…nude is in!

The holidays are gone and so are the glittery and vamp-like colors. Pretty delicate shades of cream and beige are the new direction.

Here are some tips for choosing the right nail polish shade for you:

1. For a medium skin tone, look for a nude nail polish with a slight gold undertone.

2. If you have an olive complexion or slightly fair, then go for a pinkish nude shade.

3. If your skin is dark, try a nude nail polish with a hint of brown.
