To begin 2020 on a note of relaxation, Team Tata escaped to the French Alps to visit Le Coucou Méribel. We’re surviving the winter and starting the year off right with a Custom Facial Treatment at the hotel spa. Our skin is loving the extra attention, and we didn’t want you to miss out either!
If we aren’t careful, our lifestyles can really take a toll on our skin, especially in the winter. Cold weather, indoor heating, hot showers, and other winter woes can really strip the moisture from our skin. Whether you’re hitting the slopes, or cozying up inside with a blanket and good book, everyone’s skin needs some major TLC this time of year.
Our custom facial treatment offers just that! But, just in case you can’t get away to one of our luxury spa locations, we’ve mapped out a comprehensive step by step guide on how to do one of these treatments right at home!
This personalized custom facial treatment works to enhance your natural beauty. Your best skin is discovered with this intensive, renewing treatment; catered to your skin’s specific needs. Relax and unwind as you enjoy a customized cleansing and multi-masking ritual, paired with a facial massage to leave your skin looking perfectly balanced and truly radiant. Let’s dive in...
Step 1: Relaxation & Deep Cleanse
This custom treatment begins with a heavy dose of relaxation. Our Unwind Elixir* (composed of Jasmine, Geranium, and Cypress essential oils) is used to lull you into a state of tranquility.
Stress can take a heavy toll on the skin. As the stress hormone cortisol spikes, your body holds on to inflammation– which often shows up in the face. You can shop all of our aromatic treatments on our website to help you relax and manage stress.
Once fully relaxed, it is time to deeply cleanse your skin. All of Tata Harper’s cleansers are cleansing treatments, meaning they can be modified to fit your unique skin. This specific facial begins with a double cleanse: starting with Nourishing Oil Cleanser to melt away makeup and any buildup on the surface of skin. Next, Refreshing Cleanser is applied for a gentle, hydrating cleanse with fruit enzymes. These enzymes provide gentle chemical exfoliation to eat away any dead skin cells, preparing the skin for the steps to follow.
Step 2: Peel & Microdermabrasion
A multi-acid two-step professional peel is then applied to the skin. This peel is crafted to deliver a flawless-looking complexion using an innovative blend of multi-hydroxy acids. First, an AHA + PHA Refining Solution* is applied. This solution works to retexturize and resurface the top layer of skin while dissolving any buildup of dead skin cells.
Immediately following, a BHA Renewing Solution* is applied to penetrate the skin on an even deeper level. Because BHAs are oil-soluble, they are able to clean out any remaining sebum; creating the ultimate deep clean and radiant glow.
Although the peel offered for this treatment is for professional use only, you can shop our Clarifying Mask for similar in-home spa-like results. Like a mini peel and microdermabrasion treatment in one, our Clarifying Mask is one of our most powerful treatments to get spa-like results right at home.
Step 3: Brightening
Once the Refining + Renewing solution is fully removed, our esthetician moves on to a full brightening treatment. Used daily, our Supernatural Brightening Duo gives results like a full laser treatment.
The Concentrated Brightening Essence is applied first to prep the skin. Any dullness or dark spots are combated with powerful high-performance ingredients such as caviar lime, a new generation AHA to stimulate gentle and natural skin peeling.
Following the essence, the Concentrated Brightening Serum is applied. Powerhouse ingredients such as Norwegian Sea Kelp work overtime to stimulate cellular turnover and illuminate the skin. Your skin will feel transformed as this ritual instantly reveals a more luminous looking tone, and smooth even texture for radiant, event-ready skin.
Step 4: Sculpting
Designed to tone and tighten tired skin, our esthetician follows this treatment with a Japanese face massage technique, called Kobido. This leaves the skin lifted, brightened and firmed. Performed with Jade Rollers and rapid hand movements, cooling and toning therapy increase circulation and smooth fine lines. Our esthetician focuses on three major areas of concern: the neck, chin, and jawline. Then our esthetician then moves onto the cheeks to address any loss of volume and sagging. Lastly, the forehead is addressed for any fine lines and wrinkles associated with repeated muscle movement. The result? Sculpted and rejuvenated skin.
Step 5: Deep Hydration
No Tata Harper facial is complete without some major hydration. No matter your skin type, it is important to hydrate. This will also work to combat the daily signs of aging, as plump and hydrated skin softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
For thirst-quenching hydration, Hydrating Floral Mask is applied all over the face and left on for about twenty minutes. This multi-hyaluronic mask plumps the skin to give you a dewy finish. Once removed, our Instant Recovery Eye Balm* is applied in a full circle around the eye area. This treatment locks in moisture and wakes up the eyes with green tea and caffeine.
Our Illuminating Eye Creme is added additionally on-top. Formulated with diamond dust, these pearlescent particles work to brighten any dark circles. Lastly, a heavy dose of Repairative Moisturizer is smoothed all over the face to lock in all hydration. The Be True lip treatment is applied, and you are on your way.
