Organic Facials at Joanna Vargas Skin Care Treat Your Skin the Way it Deserves
The seventh floor of 501 Fifth Avenue is home to one of New York’s beauty havens: Joanna Vargas Skin Care. As we took in the dim lights, sensuous candles and sweet smell of lotions, we could hardly wait for what was to come. The treatment of the day would be a 45 minute organic facial, conducted on a plush bed with peaceful orchestral music playing in the background. We were convinced that this was the heaven for those who have treated their skin well throughout their lives.
Every product used in the All Greens with Envy Cellular Renewal Facial is organic, which means this facial serves double duty: not only are you taking care of your skin by using only the most natural products, but also taking care of the environment. Joanna’s motto is to make “Earth Day, Every Day” and what better way to start than with your skin?
13 ways to “green” how you pamper!
The facial starts with microdermabrasion, using a diamond tip wand, and ends with an application of the most thick and luscious lip balm we’ve ever felt. In between, we were inundated with ingredients that included antioxidant-rich Yucca Extract, Flaxseed/Linseed extract, which supply your skin with omega 3s, thermal water to soften and nourish the skin, Vitex Angus Castus for its anti-aging effect, paprika to increase stimulation, honey to moisturize and revitalize and chlorophyll to rejuvenate. We left with brilliantly hydrated skin and a healthy glow like never before.
Wanting to take home just a bit of our experience (and, what can we say, as suckers for organic skincare products), after browsing the extensive display of products available, we had to pick up Eminence Organic’s Exfoliating Wash ($35), which came highly recommended by Joanna as a moderately priced choice for young adults.
The newest superfood that also saves your skin!
According to Joanna, a facial a month keeps the dermatologist away. We think we could get used to this.
