Here are five facials you must try for glowing, gorgeous skin this summer!
1 The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los AngelesRitz-Carlton Los Angeles
We love the super-opulent feel of downtown L.A.'s Ritz-Carlton Spa, and we're big fans of its new Strawberries & Cream facial, which will give you a peaches & cream complexion. The limited edition facial is only available through May 31, so get it while you can! This organic spring facial features a strawberry rhubarb exfoliation followed by a nourishing, creamy organic strawberry mask, hydrating strawberry serum, and moisturizer. Warning: you might have a serious strawberry craving afterwards (or try to eat your face mask).50 minutes, $160

2 L. Raphael Oxy Star Anti-Pigmentation Treatment at Spa Montage Beverly Hills
Spa Montage is the only spa on the west coast to offer L. Raphael's innovative beauty treatments, which, using a sophisticated device, deliver a punch of much needed, super-concentrated serums to your thirsty skin. The Oxy Star Anti-Pigmentation Treatment, at $1,100 for an hour, is the star facial here. It's best for brightening, evening skin tone, lightening dark spots and reinvigorating dull skin. This advanced oxygen treatment evens skin tone and offers superior anti-aging benefits, while white truffles disperse melanin beneath the surface of skin to fade existing sun spots and age spots. A collagen mask enhances collagen production to firm skin and diminish lines and wrinkles. The result is younger looking, velvety soft skin.

3 The DNA Facial at the Spa at Four Seasons Los AngelesFour Seasons Los Angeles
The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills has introduced the DNA Facial, created by leading Beverly Hills Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Moy. This facial, coveted by many celebrities, is setting new standards by repairing skin at a deeper level for optimal results. The DNA Facial is based on the science of DNAEGFRenewal derived from non-GMO marine based plankton and organic barley harvested in Iceland, found to reduce DNA damage, stimulate cell renewal and boost collagen production. The facial incorporates Dr. Moy’s Regeneration Serum for cell renewal and growth, resulting in tighter skin, reducing fine lines, wrinkles and skin discoloration. The DNA Intensive Renewal targets the skin’s natural DNA repair process to plump and hydrate the skin, replenish the supply of enzymes and attacks UV induced damage to diminish and help prevent age or maturity spots. Salicornia Herbacea extract and Rapeseed Sterols restore skin’s natural lipid barrier for a more glowing and radiant complexion. This facial also uses Dr. Moy’s OxyGeneo+ machine, which performs three skin-rejuvenating actions simultaneously, including gentle skin exfoliation, infusion of essential revitalizing nutrients and natural skin oxygenation. OxyGeneo+ is the world’s first technology that naturally oxygenates the skin from within thus significantly accelerating the absorption and optimal utilization of nutrients both during and after treatment. Literally, it's one of the best facials we've ever had. Not only do you feel like you're doing something for your skin at a cellular level, but you're left with a glowing, radiant, almost newborn complexion.
