Gwyneth Paltrow may grace the cover of the February issue of the upscale tourist-targeted IN NEW YORK magazine, but the real “Natural Beauty” can be found on page 19. Writes Editor-in-Chief Trisha S. McMahon’s in her monthly “well being – looking and feeling good” column:

Natural Beauty

Her vast skin-care expertise has been the subject of scores of articles in women’s magazines, Web sites and blogs. Her organic line of age-defying products are all the rage with beauty editors and her elite celeb following is the talk of the town. With this caliber of notoriety, you’d assume that Joanna Vargas of the skin-care salon that bears her name, would be, shall we say, a bit more mature in years. Or perhaps she is? Nonetheless, clients are greeted by a fresh-faced, flawless beauty, who operates her jewel-box of a salon with a no-nonsense philosophy, which blends technology and nature with a healthy dash of practicality. While the menu includes oxygen purification treatments, LED light therapies and microdermabrasion, first-timers would be well-served by opting to receive the doyenne’s Triple Crown Facial. This skin treat exfoliates with diamond fragments, uses microcurrents to tone and deliver oxygen laced with nutrients to revitalize. Lovely.

Additionally, Joanna is also you profiled in IN NEW YORK’s “Shops and Services” listings, under SALONS, SPAS and GYMS on page 47.
