Want to look red carpet ready this summer and indulge in a facial celebrities use to look their best? Then make a reservation for this spa's "Liquid Botox" treatment in conjunction with The Oxygen Facial. The Oxygen Facial is an A-list essential, credited with enhancing skin's appearance on demand, spa manager Makiko Braxton says. The facial infuses moisture-binding hyaluronic acid, vitamins and antioxidants into the skin via cool, calming topical oxygen.
It's time to talk caviar. It's not only a luxurious food. It also does fabulous things for skin. "It's good for you internally and externally," says Ellen Sackoff, of the Cornelia Spa, in The Surrey Hotel on Manhattan's posh Upper East Side. Caviar is filled with vitamins, making it very nourishing. It also firms the skin. And provides hydration. All of which was a part of the rational for the spa's latest facial -- the Caviar and Oxygen Reparative Quench. "My brand ambassador is an organic chemist, a registered nurse and a skin care junkie. He is wonderfully creative, and we came up with this treatment because we believe nourishment and oxygen are two things needed for survival of all living organisms and particularly for maintenance of beautiful skin," Sackoff says. The highlights of this facial include seaweed and sea mud exfoliation, the caviar masque, application of purified marine collagen, a double dose of patented liquid oxygen and an oxygen enrichment masque. The finale is application of cutting-edge stem cell serum to encourage new skin growth. To make this experience even more over the top, the facial is followed by a botanical tasting of caviar on toast points with creme fraiche and flute of Prosecco.
