The signature facial, a four layer treatment combining vitamin c, hydroxy acids and enzymes to speed up cell renewal, gently exfoliates and hydrates the skin. It’s base of organic aloe vera along with stem cell technology and hyaluronic acid gives a noticeable result in just one session. 

“I love this facial, says Hardiman. "Many of my clients can’t stop touching their skin after the treatment. They just can’t believe how it makes their skin feel. I spent a lot of time looking for a new skin care line to carry in the spa and I believe this is one of the best ones out there. This facial is suitable for almost everyone, leaves the face incredibly soft and smooth and can be done on the day of a big event”

Kreeger Museum Presents Portuguese Contemporary Art

May 31, 2018

Opening June 5th and running through July 31, 2018, The Kreeger Museum will be exhibiting the first group exhibition of Portuguese art of the 21st century to be presented in the United States. 


Second Nature is both a portrait of recent artistic production in Portugal and an exploration of the relationship between human culture and the environment. Working in media ranging from watercolor to photography to video, artists in the exhibition consider the tension between the concept of an untouched natural world—a popular subject in art history—and the ways humans have dominated and reshaped the environment using modern technology.


The exhibition includes 38 works and is the first to go on tour from the Museum of Art, Architecture, and Technology (MAAT) in Lisbon, which opened to the public in October 2016. It is curated by art historian Luisa Especial and MAAT Director Pedro Gadanho, formerly Curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.


The exhibition brings together works created over the past two decades by sixteen artists from different generations, each of whom employs modern technology and materials to capture, filter, and reinvent the natural world, thereby generating a “second nature.”


Highlights include an installation centered on an orange tree root by sculptor Alberto Carneiro (1937–2017); two multimedia sculptures by artist Vasco Araújo (b. 1975) that explore the relationship between nature and colonialism; a 24-foot multi-perspectival drawing by Gabriela Albergaria (b. 1965); and arresting photographs of illegal fishing and hunting traps by João Grama (b. 1975).


The Kreeger Museum is located at 2401 Foxhall Road NW.
