Jill for a Moment

No.11 Spa, Cayman Islands

jill-palmer-no-11-spa-reallife-cayman-01After 15 years working in the beauty industry Jill Palmer launched her own holistic medical spa and healthy skincare boutique, No.11 Spa, in 2017. Passionate about helping her clients look and feel their best, she spends her days dealing directly with clients, researching the best ethical, natural beauty products and developing signature spa treatments. In her downtime you'll find Jill taking on London, dining in New York or chilling at Goldeneye in Jamaica with an Aperol Spritz.

RL: What makes No.11 different to other spas?

JP: Our spa menu is centred around healthy skincare but we also offer a variety of cosmetic services that work in harmony with our holistic practices to help your skin to stand the test of time. We are also the only spa certified in Dien Chan Facial Reflexology, a noninvasive Vietnamese method of acupuncture.

RL: What makes your products stand out?

JP: Our luxury organic retail products range from skincare, make-up and hair care to handmade candles and robes. Each brand is carefully researched and tested to ensure it is the right fit for our tropical climate, and No.11's ethical standards.

RL: What ingredients do you like to work with?

JP: We’re firm believers in the power of plants and we incorporate fresh, local produce, flowers, herbs and healing ingredients into some of our signature treatments.

RL: How does No.11 incorporate modern techniques into treatments?

JP: We offer various medical skincare services that help prevent ageing and repair blemishes. Anyone in doubt about going down this road can schedule a complimentary consultation with our medical nurse to discuss the options. These can be complemented with holistic, at-home therapies, like jade rolling, facial cupping and Gua Sha as part of any anti aging routine.

jill-palmer-no-11-spa-reallife-cayman-03 RL: What are your best tips to help keep skin healthy in between appointments?

JP: Double cleanse at night: Proper cleansing is key. Josh Rosebrook's Complete Moisture Cleanse removes even the highest SPF sunblock, while Indie Lee’s Brightening Cleanser keeps pigmentation under control.

Get a good night’s sleep: Night-time is when your body heals and repairs; we even encourage clients to try sleeping in an Orgaid organic sheet mask.

Exfoliate & mask twice a week, or more if your skin allows: Pick up samples or even browse the products with a facemask on, at the spa, (we do this often, really!).

Avoid stress: Stress inflames the body making skin more

reactive and sensitive which can lead to breakouts, dry patches, and premature aging. Maintain your cool!

Clean your cell phone: Use disposable alcohol wipes to clean your screen every day. Your phone might just be the most cherished, and filthy, item you own…

Cleanse your gut: Drink a glass of fresh celery juice every morning on an empty stomach. Our friend and local  nutrition coach Nadine Dumas also has a brilliant and simple DIY Ginger and Turmeric Collagen Shot that is super effective.

RL: What is your goal for your clients?

JP: Getting people to think a bit differently about skincare. We’re creating a beauty community where we’re not just talking at our clients but we’re really engaging with them. We spend a lot of time discussing what clients want to achieve from their skincare routine, so that we can curate a bespoke spa experience, or recommend a range of products, that will boost the long term health of their skin.
