Not all skincare is created equal. We all know we have to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. But it’s also important to make sure you’re using the right products for your skin type and skin’s age! Have you ever used a moisturizer and broke out from it? It was probably “too strong” for your skin, containing rich essential oils or heavy-duty hydrators, leading to clogged pores.
Susan Harmsworth, creator of the UK-based luxury skincare line and spa company ESPA, joined us for breakfast one November morning to introduce us to her NEW! ESPA LIFESTAGE facial, the finest anti-aging facial from Britain making its New York debut at the Peninsula Hotel Spa — one of the most sought-after treatments in Europe. As we sipped our tea and munched on pastries, Susan talked about her company, the facial and the importance of using skincare items ideal for your skin type and age. She even went on to exploit the folly of her twenty-something colleagues, who thought they could use her LIFESTAGE skincare line, only to be left with breakouts. Tsk! Tsk! Susan warned them.
The ESPA brand uses only the purest ingredients with over 450 spas in 50 countries. The pioneering ESPA LIFESTAGE skincare range and facial massage techniques reveal immediate, lifted benefits, recommended for mature skin (ages 45+). For the first time in my life, I wished that my skin was older, more mature to fully appreciate this amazing treatment. But, Susan assured us that all ages are welcome to enjoy the LIFESTAGE facial. It can be altered by a skilled aesthetician to suit your skin’s needs and age, swapping in and leaving out certain products.
People of all ages can benefit from this facial’s unique massage techniques. During the facial, you will experience a SKINVISION analysis followed by a cleanse and exfoliation treatment. The face is then steamed with extractions (optional), followed by a soothing massage that lifts the underlying layers of the skin, stimulating nerve endings and relaxing the muscles to help release tension. Concentrating on specific pressure points with deep smoothing and stretching movements, you’re skin will look firmer and plumper, no matter your age!
Accompanying the facial is the ESPA LIFESTAGE skincare range, which includes 3 products made from a unique blend of 10 pure and concentrated extracts. There’s the NET8 Serum that improves hydration levels in the skin with resveratrol to prolong skin cell vitality; Stage Release Eye Moisturiser, which brightens, hydrates and safe guards the delicate skin around the eyes and Stage Release Moisturiser, a rich moisturizer that promotes the production of high-quality collagen and helps diminish the look of age spots, redness and large pores.
The brand’s Natural Encapsulation Technology delivers the extracts in stages, offering maximum benefits for up to 8-hours. Tiny microspheres containing the extracts licorice root and Himalayan fleece vine form a protective layer on the skin. And once the skincare is massaged in, the protective outer shell bursts, releasing a skin priming activator that guides the microspheres into the skin with additional extracts, like rose damascena, neroli and jasmine to strengthen sagging skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Skin is left feeling firmer and more plump, giving you a more youthful appearance.
