Treat Yourself at Arch Apothecary

If there has even been a time to “treat oneself,” 2020 is certainly it. Not sure where and how to begin? Pop in to Arch Apothecary, with locations in Madison and Milwaukee.

Numerous studies have shown in that skin conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea can be exacerbated by stress. Thus investing in posh beauty treatments may have holistic benefits if one’s anxiety level is at an all-time high.

“Overall skin health is just as important as nourishing the body with healthy food and exercise,” says Arch Apothecary store manager Cara Piper. With storefronts in Madison and Milwaukee, plus two in Illinois, the luxury boutique is staffed by licensed aestheticians and certified cosmetologists. The upscale services, innovative skincare and chic cosmetic lines are worth splurging on considering their expert advice, at times, helps clientele avoid needing more invasive procedures down the road to repair superficial damage caused by free radicals and excessive sun exposure.

Piper recommends beginning with a HydraFacial to cleanse pores and provide a nutrient-boost—often both needed toward summer’s end. “First and foremost the Hydrafacial is going to provide multiple benefits for the skin including cleansing, exfoliating and resurfacing,” she says. “It will also remove any debris from the pores and intensely moisturize the skin, in addition to saturating the skin in antioxidants and peptides to provide lasting health and results.”

Because the treatment is customizable with different add-on serums (selected based on skin type and concern), each HydraFacial is created for specific skin care goals. Piper insists the treatment is “great for any and all skin types. We can target any of the following concerns: fine lines, elasticity and firmness, skin texture, even tone, pigmentation spots, oily or congested skin and enlarged pores. Whether you choose to have one monthly or every season, you will see major changes in your skin’s overall well-being,” she says.

And although the effects are extensive, the time commitment is minimal since it typically lasts about 45 minutes—thanks to the “patented vortex fusion technology used to exfoliate, extract and hydrate the skin painlessly and seamlessly.” Which leaves ample room to have a blow out, lash curl or eyebrow tint while onsite as well.
