You can get a blowout, a new pair of contacts, and a great pair of jeans that makes your caboose go ka-bam!

But really, does anything make you feel better than having a great skin day?

MyCastro has been a fan of Skin On Market since before this writer was on staff and we’ve seen nothing but rave reviews for the facial spa just off of Noe Street.

In this two-part profile, we will give you a bit of background on the Dermalogica-stocked spa, and will later go give our own skin a bit of TLC.

But first, the basics…

It Starts With A Chat: You know when you go on Pinterest and there are two million posts about skin mapping and getting a gorgeous glow and you suddenly become super frustrated because there’s just no way all that skin-mapping could possibly work microderm-ing?

Skin On Market’s goal is to prove that wrong.

Their skin therapists’ method includes a skin consult to get to the bottom of what is up with your pores—in both a past, present and future sense.

And when we say “chat” we mean “chat”—Skin On Market’s website estimates your consult time to around 10 minutes. Oh, and it’s free. Who doesn’t love knowledge without spending a penny?

Those Products: You’ve heard of Dermalogica. You know that it’s a amazing.

And you’re in luck, because Skin On Market trusts in the loved line with keeping its clientele happy.

Your consult at the skin bar with a skin therapist also gives you a chance to learn how to properly use those products.

The Reviews: Of course, will have a full-blown, in-person account of our experience at Skin On Market.

But we did our homework, like everyone does before they trust any establishment with the layers of cells on their faces. And what struck us is how many amazing reviews they have garnered. Particularly since Skin On Market is, technically, still a social media newbie—they only launched their Facebook profile this past April.

But one look has us convinced.

As far as spas go, it’s easy for one to leave a rude review behind the guise of Yelp and such. This is not the case with Skin On Market, which has nothing but five-star ratings peppering its social media persona.

But you don’t need a cut-and-dry article to tell you to check out this Castro neighborhood facial spa. Stay updated with for when we meet up with the masterminds behind Skin On Market, or schedule a consult on your own!
