Self Care Isn’t Selfish

Here are some of our favorite ways to prioritize self-love. When you glow from the inside, you’ll glow from the outside, too! 

Invest in Your Skincare Routine

Taking care of your skin is one of the most important ways to show yourself some love. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and is a direct reflection of you! This Valentine’s Day, invest in your skincare routine by determining your skin type, problem areas, and the extent of products you prefer to use. 

Club West Med Spa is proud to offer two lines of luxury skincare products: SkinMedica® and Eminence Organic Skin Care. Visit their sites to peruse products suited to your skin concerns and goals. 


Find a De-Stress Hobby

With our ever-busy schedules, it can feel impossible to make time for hobbies–but they are an essential portion of self-care! More specifically, in addition to those that involve exercising or using brain power, you need at least one hobby that allows you to give your body and mind a break. Whether it’s meditating, coloring, reading, knitting, or baking, make a point to discover what brings you peace. So pour yourself a warm mug of herbal tea or lemon water, put on some relaxing music, and let yourself to unwind!


Upgrade Your Bathtime

It can be easy for showering to feel like an everyday monotony, but if you are really intentional about it, you can level up your bathtime into a relaxing, luxurious experience! Set aside some extra time in your day to draw yourself a bath and lean into the relaxation. You can incorporate bath salts or essential oils like lavender and rose to give yourself a spa feel at home. 


Curate a Calm Environment

Our environment plays a greater role in our mood than we often realize. If there is chaos and clutter around us, there will be chaos and clutter in our minds. Take some time to declutter your space. Be intentional about the objects you choose to decorate by finding things that bring you peace. We love incorporating salt lamps, plants, and essential oil diffusers into our space.

New Year, New Skin!–Healthy Habits to Boost Your Skin’s Glow

1. Wear SPF Everyday

The sun can do a number on your skin, making it look dull and dehydrated as well as increasing the likelihood of wrinkles and other signs of aging. That’s right, even in the winter, UV rays can reflect off of snow or enter your home through the windows. Adding an SPF product into your daily routine helps protect against environmental effects that would otherwise cause damage over time. And if you’re prone to breakouts or just want to avoid them altogether, moisturizers with SPF are especially helpful because they provide added protection against damaging UV rays while also helping keep pores clear by keeping oil production in check.

2. Increase Your Hydration

Your body needs water for everything from staying hydrated to digesting food properly — and if you’re dehydrated enough, not only will you feel tired, but it can make your skin look dull as well! The general rule is eight cups per day — but if you exercise regularly, then bump that amount up by one cup per hour spent exercising.

3. Wash Your Face Immediately After Exercising

Many people choose to exercise more for their new year’s goals, which is great! But if you’re on the go between workouts and errands, leaving the sweat to settle into your skin can lead to bacteria buildup and breakouts. Try to wash your face as soon as you can after breaking a sweat. Cool water will help close your pores and prevent bacteria from entering and making you break out. Use a gentle cleanser that’s free of harsh chemicals like alcohol or fragrance, and don’t scrub too hard, as this can cause micro-tears in the skin. If you’re in a pinch, carry some micellar water face wipes for a quick fix before you can do a full wash.

4. Prioritize Sleep

Sleep is important for skin health because it helps promote healthy cells and keep inflammation at bay. Inflammation can contribute to acne, rashes, and other related conditions like eczema or psoriasis—all of which can give your skin a bad appearance. Getting enough sleep will also help with stress management (if you’re stressed out, chances are higher that the stress hormone cortisol will be circulating in your body). When your body is under duress from lack of restful sleep or high cortisol levels, it’s less likely to produce collagen—the building block for strong bones and connective tissue—which contributes to weaker skin over time.

5. Take Care of Your Skin from the Inside Out

Eat foods that are good for your skin. The more you nourish your body from the inside, the better it will look on the outside. Take a look at our last blog post to read up on the delicious foods you should be eating for healthier skin!

Additionally, limiting alcohol intake will greatly help your skin. There’s a reason many people participate in Dry January: clear skin, improved sleep, reduced stress, better digestion, and overall more energy, to name a few. If you don’t want to cut it out completely, try limiting it to the weekends or special events. Your skin will thank you!

5. Try One of Our Signature Facials

There’s no better way to pamper yourself than with a facial! At Club West Med Spa, our facials are specially designed to target your skin’s specific needs and problem areas. Dealing with acne and hyperpigmentation? What about wrinkles and fine lines? No matter what your skin needs, our experts will provide a custom skin analysis and mixology to give you the best.

Delicious Foods for Healthy Skin

Are you feeding your skin properly? Skincare, facials, and fillers are excellent for keeping your skin healthy, but they only go so far if you aren’t giving your skin the nutrients it craves. Luckily, Club West Med Spa has laid out a comprehensive guide to choosing the healthiest foods for your skin and incorporating them into your diet. Read on to learn more!

If you are in the Midlothian, VA, area and are looking for a med spa that will meet all of your unique skin care needs, you’ve come to the right place. Contact us at Club West Med Spa today!

The Best Foods to Feed Your Skin

1. Healthy Fats

Many people view “fats” as a villain, but the truth is healthy fats are essential to your overall health. The good fats act as a moisturizer that keeps your skin looking supple and glowing.

Fatty Fish

Fatty fish contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are a building block of healthy skin. They reduce inflammation which can contribute to acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Salmon, sardines, and trout are some of the best sources of omega-3s.


Avocado toast is a phenomenon for a reason, and not just because it’s delicious. Avocados contain a high source of healthy fats and vitamin E, which is excellent for your skin’s health.

2. Vitamin C

A champion of skin health, vitamin C is necessary for collagen production. Collagen is what keeps your skin firm and plump! As we age, collagen production slows down, which means we need to supplement its natural production with our diet.


Tomatoes have high levels of vitamin C. They also contain lycopene, a wonderful element that fights cancer and prevents wrinkling and sun damage.

Bell Peppers

Bell peppers contain an underrated amount of vitamin C, at 211% of your daily value in only one cup!

3. Antioxidants

Antioxidants protect your body from harmful free radicals that lead to disease. They help prevent oxidation that causes skin aging and damage, as well as protect against UV rays and pollution.


Berries like blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries contain high levels of antioxidants. If you can, choose wild blueberries over regular ones, as they have double the levels of antioxidants.

Berries are super easy to incorporate into your diet. You can throw them in yogurt bowls, oatmeal, or smoothies for breakfast, with some chocolate for dessert, or simply on their own.

Green Tea

Green tea and matcha green tea are excellent sources of antioxidants that protect your skin from aging. Additionally, the compounds in green tea can protect against sun damage. When you’re craving a midday pick-me-up, try reaching for some green tea instead of coffee.

Are you a matcha fan? You should be–it contains about three times the amount of antioxidants of regular green tea (but be aware it has more caffeine). Beware of premade options from Starbucks or Dunkin’, which are loaded with sugar. Instead, choose a ceremonial grade from a grocery store.

4. Protein

The amino acids found in proteins are what produce collagen. Collagen is the essential element that keeps your skin elastic, firm, and youthful-looking. Choose proteins like eggs, chicken breast, turkey, fish, and nuts to supplement your skin health.

5. Dark Chocolate

Chocolate is healthy for your skin? Say no more! Seriously–dark chocolate contains antioxidants that help firm your skin and reduce signs of aging. Take it from Audrey Hepburn, who reportedly ate chocolate every night for dessert. For maximum health benefits, choose a variation with at least 70% cocoa and low sugar content.

6. Water, Water, Water!

You’ve heard it before, but we will never stop emphasizing the importance of staying hydrated. Hydrated skin is happy skin, and when you’re dehydrated, your skin is the first giveaway. Dehydration can cause dull, dry, and itchy skin. Try to follow the six to eight glasses-a-day rule.

If you’re having trouble hydrating during the day, keep a large water bottle on hand at all times to remind you to drink. Adding cut-up fruit or veggies like lemons, cucumbers, or watermelon can contribute some nutrients and make your water tastier!

Club West Med Spa is Your Skin Center!

At Club West Med Spa, we are committed to making you feel and look your best, and one of the best ways to do that is to start from within. You can’t have healthy, glowing skin if you aren’t feeding your body properly! Follow our guide to incorporate these healthy foods into your daily meals and discover just how much your skin can glow.

Chemical Peels for Every Skin Concern

Out with the old and in with the new! Our chemical peels at Club West Med Spa treat fine lines,
wrinkles, sun damage, pore size, acne, pigmentation, and more. These results-driven treatments are some of the most sought-after, and millions of people are already enjoying the life-changing benefits.

Interested in trying a chemical peel? Lucky you–we’re currently running a special on all peels. If you live in the Midlothian, VA area and want to try out our amazing chemical peel treatments, contact us at Club West Med Spa today!

So What Is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a powerful skin exfoliating solution applied to the face, neck, or hands to reveal the smooth and clear skin underneath. What makes this technique so popular is that it’s useful for a variety of skin concerns.

Each chemical peel formulation varies based on your skin concerns, and the exact
process varies depending on the chosen peel. Each peel includes a thorough cleansing and prep solution prior to the treatment. Next, a chemical solution is applied to the skin and left in place for a designated time. While you wait, the peel solution exfoliates your skin. Once the peel has completed its work, it is peeled away to reveal new, regenerated skin.

Which Treatments Does Club West Med Spa Offer?

We offer Vitality Institute and Skin Medica Peels here at Club West. Both brands produce great results, but each formulation of peel differs based on the skin concerns it addresses. Each peel is uniquely formulated and designed to lift pigment, remove sun damage, alleviate acne and scarring, and fight fine lines and wrinkles. All our painless medium-depth VI Peels are safe for all skin types and tones, with results in as little as seven days!

Vitality Institute (VI) Peels

Spooky Myths About Botox & Fillers

Spooky Myths About Botox & Fillers

It’s Spooky Season! And while the myths surrounding Botox and fillers can be scary, the treatments themselves aren’t. Deciding if treatments are right for you can be difficult because of all the conflicting information and widespread misinformation. Club West Med Spa is here to dispel the most common misconceptions about injectable treatments.

If you are in the Midlothian, VA area and are interested in our Botox® and filler treatments, contact us at Club West Med Spa today!

The Lowdown on Botox® & Fillers

If you don’t know what Botox® and fillers are, there’s a greater chance that your idea of them is shaped by frightening myths you may have heard.

So what are they? Botox® and fillers are injectable treatments designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and signs of aging. They work by filling out the areas with creases or sagging for a plumper appearance.

7 Common Myths About Injectables

1. Botox® is Toxic

It is widely believed that Botox® is derived from the toxin botulism, and therefore that it is toxic to the body. This is simply not the case. It is derived from a purified protein of the toxin but does not consist of the toxin itself. It is FDA-approved for a variety of uses, meaning it has been thoroughly researched and tested. This should give you peace of mind!

2. Fillers Make You Lose All Facial Expressions

When they think of Botox®, the “frozen” facial expression comes to mind for many. This is an idea perpetuated by the media and used as a caricature. Though the “frozen” look is possible, it is only caused by over-injecting. When you choose a trained professional to administer the filler, you don’t need to worry about this scary side effect.

3. Once You Get Filler, You’ll Have To Get it Forever

This couldn’t be further from the truth. Botox® and other injectable fillers are temporary treatments that dissolve over time. In fact, filler only lasts about three to four months; meaning, if you don’t want to continue with treatments, you don’t have to.

4. Botox is Addictive

There are no addictive elements in Botox®, filler, or any other injectables. The people you think may be addicted to fillers are likely just “addicted” to the dopamine release they feel after getting a procedure. It’s not possible to become addicted to filler–you’ll just love the way it makes you feel about yourself!

5. The Procedure is Painful

Receiving injectables is a relatively painless procedure. The majority of fillers contain lidocaine, a numbing agent, and your esthetician will apply a topical anesthetic before inserting the needle. Most people just feel a slight pinch, if anything at all. The pain level is often compared to that of a mosquito bite–that isn’t too scary, is it?

6. Fillers Make Wrinkles Worse

Many people believe that once you get filler, your wrinkles will come back looking worse than before. As the filler dissolves, your wrinkles will slowly return to the state they appeared before your treatment, but not worse. Fillers are temporary, so if you don’t want your wrinkles to reappear, you can obtain regular treatments.

7. Botox® is a Purely Aesthetic Treatment

In addition to being an aesthetic procedure, Botox® can actually help with certain medical conditions. In fact, it was first used in the 1970s as a treatment for strabismus, an eye condition. Patients who suffer from migraines, TMJ, neck spasms, hyperhidrosis, overactive bladder, and more have all found relief from injectable treatments.

Try Fillers at Club West Med Spa!

When you decide to begin injectable treatments at Club West Med Spa, leave your superstitions at the door. At our Midlothian, VA, office, we offer Botox®, Dysport®, Juvederm®, and Voluma® injectables. If you are interested in fillers but aren’t sure which types are right for you, speak with one of our professionals at Club West Med Spa today. Our team is happy to help you feel your best!

Reversing the Appearance of Skin Aging

Reversing the Appearance of Skin Aging

We all want younger-looking skin, and we’ve all been bombarded with different methods of achieving it. With so many different treatments and products at your disposal, it can be overwhelming to figure out what works best for you. That’s why Club West Med Spa has outlined a comprehensive guide to reducing the appearance of skin aging. From skincare products and injectable treatments to lifestyle changes, we’re here to explain it all!

If you are in the Midlothian, VA area and are interested in our Botox® or other injectable treatments or are just looking to learn more about taking care of your skin, contact us at Club West Med Spa today!


Skincare is a crucial part of reducing the appearance of aging. Having a solid skincare routine with products tailored to your skin type will keep your skin hydrated, moisturized, and glowing.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is like magic for your skin. It is a naturally occurring substance that, when applied to your skin, greatly increases hydration. It can help make your skin look fuller and give you that youthful glow. Incorporate it into your skincare routine to keep your skin looking healthy. To learn more, read our last blog post!


The importance of SPF has probably been preached to you, but it’s for a good reason. SPF is essential for protecting your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays. Some of those effects are premature aging, wrinkles, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation. It’s one of the easiest things you can do every day to protect yourself–trust us, your skin will thank you!


Stay Hydrated

Hydrated skin is happy skin! If you are dehydrated, your skin is one of the first giveaways. Your skin may appear dry or oily (if you have oily-prone skin), and your complexion will look dull and muted. To stay properly hydrated, you should be drinking around half an ounce to an ounce of water per pound you weigh. This will keep your skin looking plump and moisturized.

Sleep With a Silk Pillowcase

If you haven’t discovered the benefits of sleeping on silk yet, now is the time. You may not even realize it, but your regular cotton pillowcases are actually pretty rough on your skin. Silk is softer and therefore creates less friction and abrasion on your face. Replacing your cotton pillowcases with silk will give you a luxurious, high-end feeling while protecting your skin!

Eat a Balanced Diet

Did you know that the food you eat can be a cause of aging skin? Foods with high glycemic index, like sugars and simple carbs, are inflammatory to the body, speeding along the aging process. You definitely don’t need to give up on dessert forever–but finding joy in moderation is powerful.

Adding more healthy foods to your diet is more important than removing unhealthy foods. Here is a list of some anti-inflammatory foods to start adding to your meals. Maintaining a balanced diet and incorporating more anti-inflammatory foods into your diet will make you glow from the inside out!

Cut Down on Drinking and Smoking

Everyone has their vices, but the truth is, they are greatly damaging to your skin and your overall health. Alcohol is very dehydrating, and drinking regularly can cause long-term damage to your skin. Smoking is also incredibly detrimental to your skin’s health. It rapidly speeds up the aging process and can cause wrinkles and dullness. By cutting alcohol and cigarettes out of your life or enjoying them in moderation, you can save years of your life.

Botox® & Fillers

Injectable Fillers

Dermal Fillers are injectables intended to reduce wrinkles. They are injected underneath the skin and create volume that plumps up any dull or creased areas. Because they are so widespread today, fillers are more accessible than ever! They are a quick and efficient anti-aging treatment that is easy to keep up with.

At Club West Med Spa, we offer Botox®, Dysport®, Juvederm®, and Voluma® injectables. Each one is a highly-rated treatment designed to create volume and reduce the appearance of aging. Not sure which one is right for you? Contact our team to learn more!

What Is Hyaluronic Acid & Should I Use It?

You’ve probably seen it on drugstore shelves, in magazine articles, or being promoted by your favorite celebrity or influencer. Hyaluronic acid has been a buzzword in the skincare industry recently, and for good reason. But what IS it? And is it good for your skin type? Club West Med Spa is here to answer all your questions about this miracle product and if it’s worth the hype.

So What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

Many consider hyaluronic acid (HA) a “holy grail” skincare product due to its long list of benefits.
HA is a naturally-occurring humectant, which means it draws in moisture and retains it on the skin’s surface. It can bind up to a thousand times its weight in water, making it an incredible hydrating agent. But its advantages don’t stop there!

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

  • Moisturizing & Hydrating: HA encourages your skin to hold onto more moisture. This is especially beneficial to those with dry or dehydrated skin.
  • Anti-Aging: It targets dehydrated areas of the skin and rehydrates them, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Skin Elasticity: HA makes the skin appear fuller and plumper, giving a more youthful appearance.
  • Treats Wounds & Burns: Aside from being a wonderful addition to your skincare routine, HA can actually be used to treat wounds!
  • Treats Eczema & Facial Redness: HA has anti-inflammatory properties which help fight symptoms of eczema and redness.

Is Hyaluronic Acid Right for My Skin Type?

Though it might seem too good to be true, it isn’t–hyaluronic acid is beneficial to every skin type! This can be attributed to the fact that it is naturally occurring in the body, so applying the product simply helps enhance what your skin is already doing. This also means that it is rare to experience adverse side effects or allergic reactions.

Dry Skin

Those with dry skin types benefit the most from HA. It is deeply hydrating and increases the moisture in your skin while holding onto it for longer. This reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

Oily Skin

If you have an oily skin type, your skin is overcompensating for a lack of moisture by producing too much oil. Using HA over time can teach your skin to produce the correct amount of oil.

Combination Skin

If you deal with both dry patches and an oily T-zone on your face, you can use HA to target your problem areas and promote proper hydration.

Normal Skin

Even if you rarely have issues with your skin, keeping your skin hydrated is never a bad idea. You can incorporate HA into your skincare routine to promote a healthy glow.

How To Use It

Now that you know the benefits of trying hyaluronic acid, it’s time to incorporate it into your skincare routine!

  1. Cleanse: Cleanse your skin with your favorite face wash. If you also like to use toner, this is a good time to apply it.
  2. Apply Hyaluronic Acid: While your skin is still damp from cleansing, apply your hyaluronic acid serum. This retains all of that water and works to hydrate your skin.
  3. Moisturize: Apply your moisturizer on top of your serum. This locks in the hyaluronic acid and makes it last longer.
  4. Voila! Say hello to hydrated and glowing skin!
