Kalologie: The Study of Beauty

With summertime quickly approaching, looking and feeling your best is a priority, and you shouldn’t feel guilty about it.

“Self-care is not a luxury; it’s a necessity,” says Wedad Jaber, owner of the newly-opened Kalologie 360 Spa in Lamar Union.

Kalologie 360 Spa offers full-service massage therapy combined with restorative and rejuvenating skin care treatments. Jaber explains that skin treatments should be an essential part of your spring routine to prepare for being outdoors all summer.

After 15 years working in analytics, Wedad found a career path that could put her in a position to better help others. A licensed esthetician, Wedad opened Kalologie (which means "the study of beauty") to share the company's philosophy on health and wellness.

Jaber’s Top Tips to prepare your skin for summer

1. Peel in the spring

Put a fresh face forward in summer by ridding your skin of dead cells in the spring. New skin cells will be the best defense against sun exposure.

Recommended: Kalologie Signature Peel ($98+)

2. Apply SPF

Apply a broad spectrum SPF (SPF 30 or 45) 30 minutes before sun exposure and re-apply after two hours in the sun.

Recommended: PCA WEIGHTLESS 45

3. Wear a broad Brimmed hat

Physical barriers are the best option for protecting your skin.

4. Hydrate

Apply moisturizer and drink a lot of water throughout the day to keep your skin healthy and supple.

Recommend: Kalologie Balance Moisturizer ($75)

Wedad's Favorite Treatment
