“I love this facial: So between being lazy and pregnant and then nursing for 9 months for each kid, I’ve basically slacked on skincare for a solid four years. I’m beginning to inch back into taking care of my skin and the Biologique Remodeling facial at Rescue Spa helped to kick start that. I never got as many compliments on my skin as I did after getting this facial… I don’t know if it was the LED lights, the electric currents, or the tons of facial massage but… the combination works. I think I’ll get this (not inexpensive, alas) facial 4 times a year.” –Eva Chen
ELLE: You mentioned you love skincare. What are your top three must-have items?
Lucy Hale: BIODERMA Micellar Water… And then there’s this toner that I guess has been around for a really long time by Biologique Recherche USA. It’s the P50 lotion that is notorious for smelling really weird. It smells like fennel, so I get really weird about wearing it, but it’s pretty magical. It’s from some European country. It’s hard to find, even hard to find online. I can’t find it in LA; I can only find it New York. I think a place called Rescue Spa NYC sells all their stuff.
ELLE: I was just looking at their Instagram (@rescuespa) yesterday!
Lucy Hale: You have to go there anyway because it’s amazing. 100 percent. There’s this girl, Diana Chiticari Yerkes; I’ve only been twice but usually what I do is I walk in and tell them my needs and concerns and just let them do whatever.
For Europeans, taking superfood supplements is far from a fringe concept. Pharmacies there have been stocking detoxifying milk thistle and skin-renewing spirulina for quite some time, alongside other body-enhancing fixes like cellulite creams and compression tights. The cult Parisian skin care brand Biologique Recherche recently teamed up with French nutritionist Pascale Modaï to create Griffonia & L-Tyrosine ($111), a medicinal-sounding pill formulated with Griffonia simplicifolia plant extract and an amino acid — together they work as precursors to dopamine, noradrenaline and serotonin, which might regulate mood and motivation. – T Magazine
“Rescue Spa is heaven on earth. After snapping into a terrycloth cover-up, I lay down, and Danuta Mieloch, the spa’s founder and owner, looks at my face and asks me what I want. I tell her what I’m sure she hears all day: “I just want it to feel a bit brighter. More glow-y.” And with that, she analyzes my skin and tells me that I need to exfoliate more, but says other than that, I’m actually pretty good. In a time where everyone is trying to sell more and more and more, it’s nice to fully trust someone.
The next 90 minutes are spent massaging, toning, microcurrent-ing, and using Biologique Recherche for the first time. People complain about the smell, and maybe it’s just being a native New Yorker, but I honestly wasn’t bothered. After what felt like the most relaxing and educational facial of my life (Mieloch walked me through everything), I couldn’t believe the way my skin looked and felt. It was as if good lighting was following me everywhere once I left.
Their facials can go for over $300, but Mieloch says I only need one a season (like I said, honesty!).I leave Rescue Spa with a small black bag of products and a mission to go get the NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device. The device uses tiny electric pulses to stimulate the muscles in the face, which improves circulation for better collagen production and a smooth, tightened face. The results are almost instant. In days, some fine lines disappearing and my cheeks are more prominent. After a long week, it’s a pretty good fake for eight hours of sleep.” – Coveteur
A Sophisticated Rose Layered with Soft and Earthy Musk
