As we all know, carving out “me” time is hard when there’s a bazillion things on your to-do list. So when you do find a quick hour for yourself, make sure whatever indulgence you’re treating yourself to is a good one. My suggestion: The Clé de Peau Beauté Synactif Intensive Facial at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City.
This 60-minute luxe treatment uses a custom-made massage machine that Clé de Peau Beauté designed specifically for this detox facial. It has two different ultra smooth massaging heads, each about the size of a silver dollar—one emits heat, the other is icy cold. The therapist uses both and different times during the treatment to wake up your skin and boost circulation. The warming massage increases blood flow, while the cooling movements flush out toxins and fluids that cause puffiness. The Clé de Peau Beauté Synactif skincare regimen works to improve your skin’s lymphatic system, giving it renewed vitality, reducing puffiness and helping it to function at peak performance. Key ingredients in the line include MACC (a patent-pending ingredient that strengthens the lymphatic channel as it detoxifies skin), L-Serine (a natural clarifying and exfoliating ingredient) and hyaluronic acid (a moisturizing miracle worker). You also get misted with their brand new Rose Synactif Eau de Parfum that helps your mind drift off to dreamland.
Actually, whenever I get a spa treatment I try my hardest NOT to fall asleep so that I don’t miss a minute of it. But sometimes that’s impossible. I did doze off a bit during the grand finale: an ultra-concentrated cream mask. I couldn’t help it!
