Poper skincare is important; applying a drop versus a dollop can make all the difference in the effectiveness of your daily routine. Apply too little product and you can limit its effect. Apply too much and you can irritate and overload the skin, preventing it from absorbing a product’s full benefits. Éminence products are highly concentrated, which means you don’t need to apply as much to experience their full effects – here is our guide to the application amounts that are just right.
Cleansers: 1/2 a pump or squeeze
Over time, using too much cleanser can compromise the skin’s ability to produce its own hydrating and balancing oils, leaving it feeling dry and irritated. On the other hand, using too little product can prevent a thorough cleanse, leaving behind dirt and debris that can clog and congest pores. We recommend using half a pump or squeeze of your favorite gel or cream cleanser to wash away buildup and keep the skin’s moisture barrier intact.
Exfoliants: 1-2 full shakes
Exfoliating is a key step towards achieving a bright and radiant complexion – but using more product won’t necessarily generate better results. To gently slough off dead skin cells and smooth your skin’s appearance, we recommend dispensing 1-2 shakes of the best-selling Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant into the palm of your hand, adding a few drops of water, and gently massaging the paste into your skin before rinsing thoroughly.
Masques: Quarter-sized amount (add 2-3 drops of water to masques with a jelly-like consistency)
We love to mask with Eminence – and not just because the treatments look (and smell) good enough to eat! Masking is one of the most important steps you can take to see a change in your skin – these treatments contain concentrated amounts of vitamins and nutrient-rich ingredients that target a variety of skin types and concerns. So, before you slather an inch-thick layer of your favorite mask onto your skin, remember that an quarter-sized amount is just enough to deliver the results you’re after.
Toners: 3 spritzes
Toners, toniques and hydrating mists balance the skin’s pH after cleansing and prep it for better absorption of ingredients in the next steps of your routine. To leave skin glowing and refreshed, we suggest applying 3 spritzes of toner directly onto the skin, or moistening a cotton pad and gently sweeping it across your face and neck.
Oils, Serums and Concentrates: 3 drops (oils & serums) or 1-2 pumps (concentrates)
When it comes to oils, serums and concentrates, a little goes a long way. These treatments penetrate the skin, infusing it with vitamins, antioxidants and plant extracts, and are designed to target specific concerns like uneven skin tone, problem skin and the signs of aging. Because oils, serums and concentrates are so highly concentrated, you only need a small amount to experience their full benefits. We recommend pressing 3 drops of oil or serum into clean skin. For concentrates like the Bamboo Firming Fluid, even less is more – apply just 1-2 pumps for optimal results.
Moisturizers: Quarter-sized amount
We’re all guilty of being a bit heavy handed when it comes to applying moisturizers – but more isn’t necessarily better. Applying too much can actually limit the skin’s ability to properly absorb ingredients, causing an accumulation of product on its surface. The result: congested pores and lackluster skin. To get the most out of your moisturizer, apply an almond-sized amount to your face, neck and décolletage in gentle, upward sweeping motions.
Eye Creams: 1 full pump is enough for both eye areas
When applying eye creams, a pea-sized amount is plenty. Packed with vitamins and nutrient-rich ingredients, these formulas treat, protect and soothe the skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of fine lines, dark circles and puffiness. The eye area should be treated with care – we recommend dispensing one pump of eye cream and gently patting it into the skin around both eyes to avoid pulling and stretching this

Luzern organic oxygen facial
Back in 2013, I was undergoing fertility treatments and running a business. I was exhausted and stressed and my hormones were out of control. And it showed. After my two beautiful boys were born, I thought my skin would bounce back. But, it just didn’t. Everything that had worked before stopped. My skin was reactive and angry and still breaking out. It wasn’t until I realized I was actually making my skin worse by using products with allergenic ingredients and toxins that I found Luzern. Luzern worked. And that’s why we’re so happy to offer Luzern at Ananya. Because, we know it’s safe for sensitive, hyper- allergenic skin and we know it works.
Why we love Luzern!
Luzern products are powerful and pure. Using pharmaceutical-grade actives, Luzern is always non-toxic and non-irritating, with no artificial fragrances or chemical preservatives. Blending the best of science and nature, Luzern gave me my glow back.
Chemical irritants in so much of today’s skincare can cause inflammation and that increases skin sensitivity and accelerates the visible signs of aging.
12 Toxic Ingredients Never Found In Luzern Products:
Parabens / Ethanol / Synthetic Color and Dyes / Propylene Glycol and Pegs / Phthalates / Benzoyl Peroxide / DEA / Sulfates / Chemical Sunscreens / Mineral Oil and Petrolatum / Sodium Hydroxide / Synthetic Fragrance

Our aromatherapy bar is unlike any other in Seattle. Let the power of the intentional aromatherapy transform your mind, body and spirit in combined with your massage.
Over the past few years I had searched for the perfect aromatherapy for my clients in our spa. I wanted to have something unique that drew my clients deep into their massage with a unique blend of essential oil that was specific to only them.
I found Body Bliss aromatherapy at Live Love Spa, a experiential spa show. I was immediately excited about their aromatherapy app and their highest quality organic essential oils. I finally found the perfect solution to needing a unique experience for my clients.
How it works: When getting prepared for your aromatherapy massage at Ananya Spa Seattle, you first use a familiar I pad to access the app. You then chose a pathway that will bring you to your desired outcome. You can choose from 1. your numerology oils, 2. a specific oil that you love and it will help you choose thing that go well with it, or 3. how you are feeling and what sort of outcome you would like. It really is amazing. Then your massage therapist will blend it while you relax and melt onto the massage table. Your therapist will use the oil during the massage and you will feel a deeper, more relaxing, more “feeling” sort of massage. As an added bonus you get to take the oil home with you.
I hope you all enjoy this service as much as I do!

What a journey Ananya Spa has had over the last seven years. I originally opened Ananya Spa in August 2003 to better serve my massage clientele, doing my very best to transform an 1100 square foot office into a quiet, simple massage practice. As word began to spread about Ananya, I found myself expanding my practice to accommodate our increasing clientele and further build our reputation as a spa. Although we did our very best to upgrade the space and cultivate the most relaxing environment possible, we simply outgrew it and began searching for the new location for Ananya Spa.
April 17th, 2010 marked the next chapter of Ananya Spa, as we opened the doors to our new location. This space, complete with the necessary luxuries for a comfortable spa experience, is equipped with five treatment rooms, two private changing rooms, climate control, private restrooms, and increased soundproofing for quiet and peaceful treatments. We intend to build private shower rooms to help complete your spa experience in the near future.
We are so thankful for all of the support we’ve received over the last seven years that have allowed us to expand and flourish. We are so very excited for the future of Ananya Spa, as we intend to continue to grow and become the best spa we can possibly be.
