Giving your sweetie a couple dozen roses is all well and good, but why not take those roses and put them to use to make her skin radiant and gorgeous? With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Joanna Vargas is adding a new treatment to her spa offerings, just in time. The Red Rose Purifying Facial will have your sweetheart falling in love with you (and her skin) all over again.
Roses have been proven to have tons of skin benefits and they have been a part of some of the oldest skincare regimes. The flowers have been shown to be therapeutic and nourishing, rich in antioxidants and coenzyme Q10. So, why not harness that power to the max? The best part is that the benefits of the rose are suitable for all skin types, whether dry, sensitive or aging. Ms. Vargas says, “The scent of roses is uplifting … and if a whiff of the fragrance can help melt away the stresses of the day, think about the beauty benefits that can result from genuine rose extracts and oils being applied directly to your skin.” And a bonus for stopping to smell the roses, not only do roses purify the skin, the facial helps to soothe red, inflamed skin and strengthens capillaries.
Red Rose Purifying Facial (with Microdermabrasion) is $175. Joanna Vargas Salon is located at 501 Fifth Avenue, Suite 2011, 212.949.2350, www.joannavargas.com.
