Fall Refresh. Why You Should Start With a Facial.

 

‘Fall Refresh’
It’s officially Fall which means that it is time for a refresh!
As your sun-kissed glow begins to dwindle the signs of sun damage may start to appear.  It happens to the best of us, even those that wear SPF diligently.  Unfortunately these tell-tale signs take form in unwanted or extra sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and dehydration.

Which makes this is the perfect time to schedule a restorative treatment to specifically target and repair sun damage.  We recommend scheduling any one of our
Rescue Spa Signature Facials, always tailored to your needs.

For those looking to indulge we also offer Biologique Recherche Facials at both of our locations in NYC and Philadelphia.
No need to book a flight to experience these exceptional treatments, these are the same treatments offered at the world famous Ambassade de la Beauté on the Champs-Élysées in Paris.

Manicures and Pedicures
Stay on trend and choose any color of your choice from our incredible selection of polishes. You can also opt for Bioseaweed Gel, the healthy alternative to typical gel nails, for 2+ weeks of high shine, chip-free gel nails, sans UV light (we use LED).

Threading
There is nothing quite like a face-transforming magic of an eyebrow shaping with a pro.  Allow our experienced hands to custom shape the perfect pair of brows for your face.

Hair Salon
Fall is the ideal time for a hair refresh!  Whether you are refreshing your color, cutting it short, adding some fringe, or simply playing with texture… this is the prime time to do it.

Makeup
Our Fall 2017 palette is as gorgeous as ever.  Our skilled makeup artists will enhance your features for a beautiful finish.
From no-makeup makeup … to all-out glam it’s entirely up to you.

Jetlag in Paris…

Paris is a place that I always end up going back to.  I’m constantly looking for new products, treatments, and inspiration. I stroll the streets, check out shops, and observe the way French women dress and take care of themselves.  They seem to possess that attitude and confidence, je ne sais quois.  Including they look for items that say utilitarianism, longevity, and quality. They never buy a whole new look. Instead they wear the pieces they love and continue to build classics.  A similar approach they apply to skincare.  One of my favorite shops is Bon Marche, one of the oldest stores in Paris.  In my opinion they carry the best selection of skincare products.  It’s very easy to browse around, extremely accessible, and the staff is very knowledgeable and quick to give wonderful advice.  I was sweetly surprised to see some Rescue favorites; Valmont, Institut Esthederm, and Chantecaille among the wonderful selection.  All of a sudden it felt like home for me! It’s great when you find familiar feelings far from home.

Home away from home for me is always a necessary visit to Ambasade De La Beaute Biologique Recherche. On the day I arrived I had an appointment for their famed remodeling facial. I couldn’t think of a better way to get rid of jet lag and look instantly refreshed. My treatment was amazing.  It started with a cleansing, then a consultation… the French are very interested in your lifestyle (they’re advocates of a stress free life) and my esthetician was not shy to tell me to stop stressing, almost as if it were a prescription. I had the Lift CVS treatment followed by electric current remodeling machine. My face felt lifted, stress melted away, it was just what I needed. At the end my esthetician suggested a skincare regime for me and it was very refreshing because it’s not often someone does this for me.  I only see my skin in the mirror, which is not tactile.  So I really took her advice to heart because she was able to read my skin in a different context than I’m able to myself. After the facial I had a blow dry.  When my hair stylist asked me how I wanted it I left it up to her.  She gave me this magnificent style that felt perfectly Parisienne. I forgot all about the jet lag, went out for a fantastic dinner and stayed out late.  So once again the proof is there. If your skin looks good and your hair looks good you can wear a pair of jeans and a T-shirt and still feel glamorous! So I resolve for 2013, to continue to get facials and blowouts instead of going out and buying a brand new outfit. Packing for Paris will be much easier, I’ll just make sure to book a facial and a blowout before hitting the boutiques. Tres chic!
