Expect little post-treatment redness with Dermalogica’s BioActivePeel.

 

Dermalogica BioActive Peel
After finding myself in my 30s with a baby (and the hormone spots and sullen skin that go along with said bundle of joy), I realized I needed to bring in the big guns. I needed a peel.
But peels are scary, right? Dermalogica’s newest service boasts the benefits of a peel — it fades hyperpigmentation, helps to clear acneic inflammation as well as refreshen skin — but with no post-treatment redness.
It’s quick, it kind of stings, but the slight discomfort (and $150 price tag) is worth it. I had very little peeling or redness. Four days later, my skin looked clear and healthy; the benefits are much more noticeable than a regular facial.

Paul Labrecque Restorative Mineral Massage
Minerals aren’t just for Hank on “Breaking Bad” (hope you laughed at that sad attempt at humor).
The Paul Labrecque mineral massage is a full-body rubdown designed for everyone from pro-athletes to tired moms — anyone who needs a little
relief from putting themselves into overdrive. It incorporates magnesium — one of the body’s most important minerals for fighting inflammation and soreness — in its massage gel cream. The all-natural cream is absorbed through the skin into the blood stream, which our therapist told us is the best way to get the mineral. You’ll leave with relaxed joints and muscles (great for increasing flexibility), so you can kick butt on the field or in the boardroom.
The treatment is available in 60-minute ($145) and 90-minute ($175) sessions.

Savor Spa Organic Pumpkin Facial
Sure, you love pumpkin in everything from your fall lattes to beer, but did you know the beloved squash is high in vitamins and antioxidants that brighten damaged skin? Angel Jia Kim’s charming eco-friendly spa in the West Village utilizes the ingredient in an anti-aging treatment that promises to remove dead skin, plump skin cells and boost collagen — and, um, smell really good in the process.
But book fast because just like Dunkin’ Donuts delicious Pumpkin Munchkins, this treatment is available for a limited time only.
The 60-minute service ($165) is available now through Nov. 30.
