Summer is here and if you’re gearing up to travel for the first time in a while, you’ll probably want arrive at your destination fresh-faced. If you haven’t indulged yourself in a facial for a while, a week or two before your big trip is the best time to clean out those pores and reveal your most vacation-ready complexion to date.
Here are three facials that ensure everyone says “you look great!” when they see photos from your trip.
1) Geneo (available at The Wellpath in NYC and throughout the United States)
Geneo is called the “facial of the future” as it’s a three-in-one facial offering four different options (Balance, Revive, Illuminate, Hydrate) tailored to your skin type. Designed to give you bright and naturally beautiful skin, this facial combines exfoliation, oxygenation, and nourishment. Even better, this treatment is quick and can be done over a lunch break without leaving your skin red and puffy. Geneo uses a unique Oxypod ingredient complex which creates a rich bubbly environment on your skin leaving you radiant and refreshed. If your skin is looking a little dull because you weren’t able to get a facial for a while, opt for the ‘Hyrdrate’ oxypod to replenish skin and help it retain moisture better after. This is especially effective when if you plan on visiting a dry climate or a beach for your next trip.
2) Biologique Recherche Signature Facial (available at SKINNEY Medspa and various locations worldwide)
Biologique Recherche is a skincare brand with a cult following, and if you’re not familiar, Google Lotion P50 to read hundreds of reviews about their miraculous skincare product. That’s why it should come as no surprise that the French brand’s foray into facials has also been highly popular. Using a combination of Biologique Recherche products, this facial helps rebuild your skin and addresses any signs of aging on your face, neck and décolleté. A unique feature of this facial is that it’s administered cold, perfect for when you can’t imagine sitting under a face steamer on a summer day. Up the ante of your facial when you add the “remodeling face” which incorporates microcurrent technology to strengthen the facial muscles, leaving your complexion instantly firmed and toned. You’ll arrive at your destination with a famously youthful and as people say, “snatched”, face.
3) Signature Facial (available at Erase Spa)
Great for all ages and skin types, the Signature Facial at Erase Spa is a time-tested treatment to give you glowing skin. You’ll leave the spa with tightened pores and a revived complexion that’s also hydrated and primed for a vacation. The facial uses an outstanding selection of products and it cleanses, steams, exfoliates, extracts and nourishes the skin, promoting radiant skin. It makes your complexion look extra clean and smooth, so if you’ve fallen behind on skincare and treatments during the pandemic, this is a tried-and-true treatment to book.
These three facials are great to book before a vacation to arrive with clear and glowing skin. Just don’t forget to use sunscreen on your youthful skin, as revealing a fresh layer can make you even more prone to sun damage. Also, complete your routine with a Vitamin C serum to prevent oxidative and environmental damage.
