Living in Manhattan can be fast paced and stressful. Luckily for New Yorkers and visitors to the City That Never Sleeps, two hotels on the island have introduced new treatments to their already world-class spas to help guests rejuvenate. Whether you are looking to refresh your skin or tap into your inner energy, these spa treatments will help fight the stresses of city living.
The spa at the Trump SoHo New York has partnered with the Spanish skin-care brand Natura Bissé to create a set of new facials to combat aging and correct pigmentation. The 90-minute Alternative to Injectables Facial ($395 on weekdays, $410 on weekends) forgoes plastic surgery for manipulation of pressure points as a means of reducing expression lines. Using Octamioxyl, a peptide said to inhibit muscle contractions in the face, the esthetician massages the sites to lift and restore density to the skin. To remove dark spots, the 60-minute Hawaiian Whitening and Brightening Facial ($365 on weekdays, $380 on weekends) includes a triple exfoliant with glycolic acid and carboxytherapy, which uses carbon dioxide to even skin tone and bring luminosity to the face. The Natura Bissé products, which are all made in Barcelona, are priced from $75 to $730 and many are available for purchase at the spa. (212.842.5505, www.trumphotelcollection.com/soho)
Through its Experts in Residence program, the Cornelia Spa at the Surrey is expanding its approach to wellness to incorporate treatments that address the mind, body, and spirit. Several times throughout the year, the spa hosts treatments led by beauty and wellness professionals, such the feng shui stylist Billy Yamaguchi, who—from September 15 to 18—will offer consultations to identify a person’s energy. According to the five elements in feng shui (fire, earth, metal, water, and wood), he tailors the guest’s hairstyle and hair color, makeup, and more to reflect her energy ($150 for shampoo and styling to $800 for a complete consultation that includes cut, color, and style).
