The Lifting Facial

FEATURES Lift your facial contours—and your spirits—with La Mer’s The Lifting Facial. Designed to re-sculpt, shape and define, the treatment kicks off with the warming up of your facial muscles to stimulate micro-circulation. Following that, the skilled therapist conducts a deep tissue massage to further enhance the contours for increased visible density and definition.

BAZAAR LOVES IT From the moment you enter the La Mer cabin, be prepared to be pampered from head to toe. All of its treatments echo the brand’s heritage philosophies of healing and energy balancing. So just sit back, relax and look forward to a rejuvenating and transformational experience—for your skin and mind.

GOOD TO KNOW This facial uses The Lifting and Firming Mask, a luxurious cream mask that delivers serum-strength sculpting power to skin. Infused with The Miracle Broth, La Mer’s patented ferment that lies at the heart of each and every one of its products, the mask helps visibly lift, tighten and firm your facial contours.

$300 for 90 minutes. Available at SEVIIN @ TANGS, Tel: 6735 6762; Robinsons The Heeren, Tel: 6836 5471; Takashimaya, Tel: 6737 4107.

Super Star Facial

FEATURES As its name suggests, this facial packs a punch when it comes to targeted treatments. Caught up in our busy lifestyles, we forget to give our skin the TLC it needs—despite knowing that healthy skin is as important as a healthy body. So, just as the right food will boost your body’s performance, the Super Star Facial feeds your skin with the right nutrients and enzymes necessary to keep roughness, wrinkles and blemishes at bay.

BAZAAR LOVES IT The facial is chock-a-block with the bounties of Mother Nature. Drawing in enzymes from fruits like pineapples, pumpkins and apples that are known for their anti-ageing properties, this facial is also infused with Astaxanthin, which acts as a powerful antioxidant. It exfoliates, smoothens and strengthens skin, naturally.

GOOD TO KNOW Following in the footsteps of Sloane Inc’s Superfood skincare line, this facial focuses on restoring the foundation of skin with power-packed ingredients. The Astaxanthin used is derived from red algae and has been found to be much more efficacious in boosting skin health than vitamin E, CoQ10 and vitamin C. The fact that it does all this using the most natural means possible makes it the go-to power boost for the time-starved executive.

$294.25 for 60 minutes. Available at The Sloane Clinic, Villagespace branch, Tel: 6471 1108; Citysphere branch, Tel: 6533 2522; ION branch, Tel: 6509 8108.

Sparkling Skin Program

FEATURES With the woman-on-the-go in mind, The Sloane Clinic has devised the Sparkling Skin Program to target the effects of ageing and environmental exposure. An airbrush spray system employs carbon dioxide lasers to go deep into the dermal layers to clear impurities, thereby attacking the root of dullness while jump-starting the skin’s natural renewal process.

BAZAAR LOVES IT This treatment packages the best from Sloane Inc’s signature SmartX Lite treatment for a skin-renewing laser treatment that not only revives skin, but also leaves it sparkling in just six simple treatments with minimal to no downtime.

GOOD TO KNOW A more focused version of the patented SmartX Lite technology, the treatment has higher penetrating abilities to deliver youth-reviving benefits and fix ageing skin woes, while being gentle enough to suit all skin types. Post treatment, prep and protect skin with sunscreen, and you’ll be all set to show off your “new” glowing skin.

$4,815 for six sessions of SmartX Lite, three-time LED Red Photomodulation therapy, six-time Radiance Gel wraps. Available at The Sloane Clinic, ION branch, Tel: 6509 8108.
