The final week is when things went a little off the rails. In fairness, pre-wedding stress undeniably played a big part in that.
By the time I got to Rescue Spa, I had hormonal acne on my chin and a number of congested pores just waiting to erupt. Walking into the chic Flatiron flagship—one month to the day before my wedding—in full-on frustration mode was a real bummer. Esthetician Ela Lewis aimed to rebalance my skin with a slew of coveted Biologie Recherche goodies. She also opted for microdermabrasion and used a microcurrent sponge. I left feeling optimistic.
