Stressed, tired skin looks dull. And this adds years because of the lack of a youthful glow. Besides piling on the brightening skincare, you can pamper yourself and get some rest at the same time with these facials.

Designed to harness the skin-conditioning benefits of one of nature’s most amazing ingredients, honey, this pampering facial also incorporates a therapeutic facial massage and professional grade technology like cryotherapy and red LED phototherapy to give skin a complete overhaul. At the end of this 90-minute session, you’ll not only have plump and supple skin, skin texture is also more refined and has a lit-from-within glow as a result to improved microcirculation and hydration.

Over time, skin also becomes firmer and more taut as collagen levels gradually increase.

Expect nothing less than a renewed complexion that glows for days with this results-driven facial.

Featuring the widely-raved Intraceuticals technology, it emits a hyperbaric stream of oxygen, infusing skin with skin-conditioning actives at the same time to instantly plump and impart a well-rested glow.

And that’s not all: Your therapist also carefully selects high-performance ESPA products that are suited to your skin type to achieve maximum results.

If you want to pamper your senses to an indulgent ritual that cocoons your skin in the most sensorial textures for the most potent rejuvenating results, look no further. Featuring the French brand’s most luxurious Absolue L’Extrait range, it infuses your skin with rose stem cells that act on the skin’s epidermal and dermal cells.

Through a series of specialised massage techniques using the uniquely designed massage petals, your skin is treated to alternating warm and cold sensations to boost microcirculation for an energised glow. At the same time, cellular metabolism and skin turnover are optimised, enabling your skin to regain plumpness and luminosity.

Taking a page from Korean celebrities’ radiant skin manual, this brightening facial counts on a powerful pigmentation removal technology from Korea to supplement its in-house skincare concoctions to give customers a never-before-seen glow.

Thanks to the tiny molecular size of the active ingredients, they are effectively absorbed into skin to break up existing melanin clusters, tighten enlarged pores and improve hydration. An oxygen mask completes the treatment as you emerge with a clearer and smoother complexion.


5. The Ritz-Carlton Spa The La Mer Miracle Broth Facial, $420 for 90 minutes

They don’t call it The Miracle Broth for nothing. Derived from hand-harvested sea kelp, this skin-renewing elixir is carefully crafted with the addition of minerals, vitamins and natural extracts. No wonder this is the go-to facial among discerning customers. A slew of customised La Mer products will be selected to best suit your skin type as your skin is coddled every step of the way.

In addition to the bespoke massage techniques applied to soothe, tone, and relax your facial muscles, your skin is also treated to an infusion of The Miracle Broth and a tightening ice sequence. Almost instantly, your skin looks radiant and wrinkles seem to have diminished.
