Skin deep: Dive into what skin needs to thrive

Skin deep: Dive into what skin needs to thrive

Use technology to understand your skin, consult the experts to build a custom care routine

A trip to the spa is an escape. A chance to let go of stress and restore your spirit.

When it’s over your skin feels fresh and your mind is clear, which is great — until a week later when you try to replicate the routine at home. Was it cleanser first and then exfoliant, or the other way around? How often am I supposed to use toner?

“The spa is for relaxation. So I wanted to create a new space for education,” says Megan Lindow, Skincare Specialist for La Creme Boutique and Melt Mineral Spa.

Visit La Creme to understand your skin, develop a custom skin care routine, and get the training to do it right.

“Youtube and Instagram are great tools for giving you information and inspiration, but you can’t ask any questions. Plus the routine isn’t personalized to your needs — just because a skincare routine works for an influencer doesn’t mean it will work for you!” says Lindow.

Lindow developed her passion for skincare when trying to help her younger sister through adolescent acne, and still feels excited every time she’s able to clear someone’s skin and give them fresh confidence.

“I just worked with a client who was avoiding going out with friends because she was embarrassed by her skin. Learning what your skin needs and what products work can be really life changing!”

3 ways to serve your skin at La Creme

  • Visia: Incorporate technology to better understand your skin! The Visia machine takes eight photos of your skin under different light conditions. See where pigmentation, oil and bacteria are concentrated, and get a deeper sense of what your skin needs to thrive.
  • Visia + Consultation: Use Visia to get a full picture of your skin, then consult with a La Creme expert to build a personalized skin care routine. “Just because you’re coming in for a consult doesn’t mean you have to start from scratch. We believe in the products at our store, but you don’t have to change products if they’re working for you,” Lindow says. Tweak your existing routine, and make changes that suit your Visia results.
  • Visia + Consultation + Treatment: “When I get my hands on your skin I can get a better sense of what could work,” Lindow says. Analyze your skin with Visia, consult with a professional to make a skin care plan, then relax for a facial and allow the La Creme experts to give you a hands-on demonstration that leaves you refreshed.

La Creme is more than just skincare — the store stocks other quality products to help you look and feel good. Stop by the store for quality makeup, pyjamas, candles, baby care, feminine care, and even tea from Paris.

Find a full list of treatment options and products at, or stop by the store Monday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 101-207 Main St. in Penticton.
