6 New Incredible Ways to Relax In NYC

1. Walk the High Line

If it’s a nice day, take a stroll along the High Line! Walking the High Line is a great activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Besides getting a nice view of the city, there’s also a ton of cool street art all along the way to enjoy. Plus it won’t cost you a dime!

2. Spa

If you prefer to spend your time relaxing and de-stressing, then maybe a day at the spa is exactly what you need. Come on in to Rescue Spa for a nice relaxing massage or one of our premier spa services. Especially with all the stress that the busy culture of NYC can cause you, taking a day at the spa is a perfect way to relax and rejuvenate!

3. Visit a Brewery

There are more than 20 awesome breweries to check out in New York City! That means there’s likely a brewery nearby no matter what borough you’re in. A couple that are definitely worth a visit are Gunn Hill Brewery, Brooklyn Brewery, and Singlecut Beersmiths. If you’re free for an entire day, pick out a few to visit for your own mini brew tour!

4. Staycation

Not everyone likes to be out and about when they’re trying to relax. If that’s you, then maybe a little staycation at home is what you need! Put on some music and take a bath, cuddle up in your comfy chair with a book, or spend some time on the couch catching up on your favorite shows. If you’re a homebody, a nice rejuvenating afternoon at home might be just what you need.

5. See a Show

When you’re living in New York, it’s easy to take all the awesome Broadway shows for granted since they’re always available to you. But don’t forget to take advantage of such a great opportunity! Especially if you haven’t been to Broadway in a few years, go see a show and let Broadway amaze you all over again!

6. Find a Live Event

If you’re not really into broadway, don’t worry. There are plenty of other things to do in NYC! Whether you’re into dancing, sports, video games, or fine dining, there’s certainly something to do that will help you de-stress and unwind in New York.

The Beginner’s Guide To Investment Skincare

Maintenance

By which I mean regular facials. When asked where they invest when it comes to their skin, three out of three Glossier employees surveyed responded “RESCUE SPA” while running around wildly and displaying Danuta’s likeness tattooed onto their biceps. Consider booking yourself an appointment with someone you trust (this is the time to build a relationship, not flit around to just anyone) and see them twice a year. The professional-grade microdermabrasion and extractions alone will have you seeing the results for months on end. Also, talk about cumulative effects: When someone knows your skin, you can work towards a goal together instead of shooting in the dark alone. Think of this as your skin accountant. Didn’t think I’d take the metaphor that far, did ya? – Emily Ferber x Into The Gloss

Phoebe Tonkin x Into The Gloss

“My skincare routine has changed since I shot my Top Shelf, for sure! One of the biggest changes was that I started using all Biologique Recherche. I have this girlfriend Hayley, at her house we would always inevitably end up drinking wine, and after three glasses of wine she was like, ‘Come into the bathroom, we’re doing a facial!’ And she’d always give me these Biologique facials with all these serums, and the moisturizer, all of it. I’d wake up in the morning with a slight hangover but my skin would be amazing! Eventually I took the plunge and got the whole regimen. My favorite trick is to use the Masque Vivant combined with the Masque VIP. I mix it in my hand with baking soda. A facialist told me about that, and it works.  Then I use the Biologique toner, cleanser, and serum.

I’m just obsessed with anything skincare, so if someone has something that I don’t have I’m like, ‘Ooh, what’s that?’ One of my other girlfriends had the Ziip-of course I picked it up. I started using it, and it’s amazing. Like, it actually is amazing. It does work. I have all the gadgets-I have the LED mask, I have it all. I use them when I’m watching TV.

I use Oribe shampoo and conditioner. For the luxe of it all. To be honest, [my hair] is a little temperamental. But when I’m in a good environment, like when I’m at home or when I’m driving, my hair dries really well. I just tuck it under my ears, and it dries in this sort of wavy, sort of straight way. But if it’s not in the right environment and I let it dry naturally, it will be so frizzy. If I just go straight outside or for a walk or something, my hair will get frizzy. So I try to be inside and let it dry. It can be wavy, but it can also be quite frizzy and poofy, which I actually sometimes like. Because it makes me feel like I’m in an 80’s rom-com. I have a straightener and a blow dryer, but I don’t really use them much. Except when I’m in a really big rush and don’t want to wait and see if my hair dries nice or not, I’ll blow dry it properly and straighten it. One thing I learned is called the preemptive dry shampoo. So even when your hair is clean, the night before you go to bed, you put dry shampoo in. And the you wake up and it’s got a good texture. So I do that sometimes. It helps that I have a silk pillowcase, but I’m also too messy and I drool all over it [Laughs].” –Phoebe Tonkin as told to Into The Gloss

Mandy Moore loves P50 too

“I am a huge fan of Biologique Recherche​ P50, and it’s something that’s been a staple in my skin care game for probably five or six years. I love, love, love it. I know it’s harsh for some people, but I use it once a day, usually in the evening. It’s the perfect exfoliator. I don’t feel like my skin is clean unless I use it.” Mandy Moore​ x People​ Magazine

How to Care for Your Skin — While You Sleep NY Times (T Magazine)

Cleanse and Cleanse Again
As a first step, skin-care experts agree that cleansing and toning should never be skipped (or rushed) at night. Danuta Mieloch, the facialist and founder of Rescue Spa, swears by a double-cleanse with Biologique Recherche USA’s Lait U using a muslin cloth to remove any last traces of makeup.

For toner, both Mieloch and Czech use Biologique Recherche P50, which “exfoliates, hydrates and balances the pH of the skin,” Mieloch says.

Personalize Your Serum
Next, according to all of the facialists we polled: an overnight serum. These concentrated liquids contain the highest doses of nutrients, and facialists often combine them to create customized, targeted tinctures.

Moisturize Generously
Lastly, moisturize — and moisturize some more — since the body’s natural hydration levels dip at night. Finish with a rich cream; Mieloch is partial to MBR Skincare Cream Extraordinary ($369) , spiked with ultra-hydrating lanolin and light-reflective gold particles to subtly conceal any imperfections.
