Here are some ideas from Guinot:
FOR A SMOOTH NECK + CHEST
While the face usually gets top billing in skincare, French women know the neck and chest need special treatment too. The thin skin is especially susceptible to wrinkles and sun damage. Guinot’s new Longue Vie Décolleté Serum helps restore the firmness of the décolleté by strengthening the skin’s support tissues, resulting in smoother, softer and younger looking skin.
FOR A GOLDEN GLOW-UP
Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi opened in July 2019 as a dream honeymoon spot with an even dreamier spa. Instead of a blender off the registry, give your bride-to-be-bestie a 24-carat gold facial by Carol Joy as a honeymoon surprise. During the treatment, the gold leaf is applied – it forms a delicate web on the skin that works to improve radiance, elasticity and firmness.
FOR A NON-SURGICAL EYE LIFT
Guinot’s new micro-current eye treatment uses roller electrodes that switch between positive and negative polarity to stimulate the eye muscles, resulting in an instant, non-invasive eyelid lift in just 25 minutes. This, combined with an eye massage and a Vitamin C eye mask, works to reduce puffiness and boost circulation. Lasting about one week per treatment, Eye Lift is the perfect gift for a friend leading up to the rush of holiday parties.
FOR A LAST-MINUTE FACE BOOST
Guinot’s Mini-Lift Éclat Beauté Vials are tiny tubes of ultra-concentrated actives that are the perfect finishing touch for any woman before an event or night out. They instantly brighten the skin and enhance the glow of makeup.
FOR A QUICK BREAK FROM REALITY
Shou Sugi Ban House is a wabi sabi-inspired wellness retreat and destination spa in the Hamptons in the USA.. Located right next to the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, the 13-room property incorporates many forms of wellness, including sound healing, reiki, yoga, tea ceremonies, hydrotherapy, fitness classes, and hikes on the beach. Full-day retreats make for the perfect experiential gift to do with a friend or significant other.
FOR A NEW YORK CITY SPA DAY
Offering welcome respite in the heart of Manhattan’s Theater District, the 2,400-square-foot Mynd Spa & Salon at The Chatwal, New York, features three treatment rooms for a wide range of tailor-made beauty and wellness services. Theater-lovers can relax with a manicure and pedicure before enjoying some of the season’s hottest productions just steps from the hotel. Plus, the Mynd Spa is tucked underneath the hotel’s lobby like a wellness bank vault, meaning that ambient noise is minimal.
