Sense spa at Rosewood Hotel Georgia.
Wherever you dash off to this summer to soak up some much-needed beach time, be sure to give your skin the same amount of recovery (if not more!). Since you take the pains to include SPF-enriched products into your beauty routine, check into one of these luxe spas during your next vacation so your skin will be as rejuvenated and cleansed as you feel upon returning to real life.
Summer skin care spa treatments #1: The island escape
What: Pacific Paradise body treatment (90 minutes, approx. $160)
Where: Spa Space. 161 North Canal St., Chicago. 1-312-466-9585.
Targeted skin repair: Like a tropical getaway, this signature skin care treatment leaves your complexion brighter and more relaxed than when you arrived (not to mention the lingering piña colada smell you’re left with). The 90-minute Hawaiian-inspired treatment begins with a 30-minute mango sugar body scrub to slough away sun-damaged skin cells. Newly exfoliated skin is then replenished with an hour-long massage using kukui-coconut oil. Goes swimmingly with an ahi tuna tartare app from the spa menu.
Summer skin care spa treatments #2: City repair
What: Clarins Skin Therapy Brightening Performer facial (60 minutes, $160)
Where: Spa My Blend by Clarins. The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto. 181 Wellington St. West., Toronto. 1-416-572-8000.
Targeted skin repair: Trekking across the city on a hot summer day can be just as damaging to exposed skin as laying out poolside (minus the relaxing benefits and fruity cocktails that come with it). The Brightening Performer facial targets the dark spots and uneven skin tone caused by sun damage using sea lily extract and vitamin C to reduce pigmentation and leave a youthful summer glow in it’s place.
