Hot Shop: Plain Jane Skinbar (Win!)

May 5, 2021

We may not be able to fitness as usual a few more months, but we can still give our faces a workout thanks to Plain Jane Skinbar.

A longtime pro within the medical aesthetics field, owner Amberly Donnelly created her bar with a gym-membership-style model in mind, with an aim to make scientifically proven facials combined with medical-grade skin care accessible not only from a price perspective, but also in terms of treatment time and downtime. Although Plain Jane is open to one-offs, purchasing an annual membership ($179) will yield you a personalized, simple-to-follow routine that includes one membership treatment a month plus an average of 25 per cent off other additional facials at any time—after all, the key to truly effective skin care is maintenance. The SoMa space is cool and calming, and the menu includes basic, hydrating, laser and fractional facials, all performed by a specialized technician in 30 minutes.

Pick up your favourite SkinCeuticals or ZO skin-care prods on the way out (just these two highly recommended brands are sold, for simplicity’s sake), and leave feeling, dare we say, fresh faced and ready to face the day. —Noa Nichol

    I love microdermabrasion, an exfoliant/polish, anti-aging serum, followed by a great facial oil to get my “glow” on.
