WARNING: MAJOR DECLARATION AHEAD I had the best facial I’ve ever had in my life. It’s kind of a milestone event. And I’m sorry that it’s taken me so long to tell you about it.
I was invited by Woodhouse Day Spa, a national franchise founded in 2001 in, of all places, Victoria, TX, to learn more about the spa and their services. Last November, I sat down with Daphne, the owner of the Westlake location, the only Woodhouse in the Austin area.

Serums should be rich in skin goodies, and due to their thin, liquidy consistencies, they’re able to deliver those goodies deeper into the skin. So you see, it’s important to find the right one for you. Here’s what I’ve landed on:
Rosacea is a pretty common skin condition but surprisingly few of us are aware that we have it. We just think we have mottled skin with uneven tone that flushes easily, coupled with occasional and seemingly random irritated red bumps on our cheeks that never become full-fledged zits. Awesome.
