Mask yes, mask no. Between rules and truces, we gradually return to free our breath, to put on a lipstick, to smile. If the prolonged use of these protections has left its marks on the skin, a ritual, a treatment or a booster can restore tone and freshness. From Milan to Naples, passing through Florence and Lake Orta, we have selected four new treatments designed to repair accumulated damage and revitalize the skin. At home, on the other hand, day by day, it is worth giving a shield to the face, so as not to leave it unguarded and unprotected. Scientific research today speaks of smart protection, as in the case of hyper-treatment Sisley-Parisor dermal shield, as for the powerful filter of Guerlain. Of water and anti-stress and anti-pollution hydration, as in the complex work on the brightness of La Prairie or adaptive and curative cosmetics, as for the balm of Hermes. Four options for a daily care path, which creates a barrier to external aggressions.
Four in one
Three treatments in one. Indeed, four. A peeling, a dermabrasion, a moisturizing mask, a localized cryotherapy. The latest technological luxury in the scientific avant-garde, this Californian protocol, already patented and awarded, loved by many Hollywood stars, allows you to return to having radiant, purified and hydrated skin. It is called HydraFacial and is made through a handpiece the size of a marker attached to a large machine. After a hi-tech dermocosmetic diagnosis to identify the most suitable treatment for different skin types, the device proceeds with a cleansing that prepares the skin for hydro-dermo-abrasion. Action that, specifically, includes three different steps: a delicate acid exfoliation; vacuum suction (patented) of impurities and dead cells; deep skin hydration and nutrition with customized blends of antioxidants, serums, boosters, peptides and hyaluronic acid conveyed by LED light. This signature treatment acts as a face reset. The perfect combination is the one developed by The Spa of the Four Seasons Hotel in Florence, which combines cryotherapy (75 minutes, 490 euros) with HydraFacial (45 minutes, 230 euros). Using specific cold handpieces to stimulate vasoconstriction and subsequent reflex vasodilation, the protocol favors a decrease in inflammation and acts on small wrinkles, spots, imperfections. With a “gym effect”.
The power of silk
This ritual is based on koishimaru silk and has a history of over five centuries behind it. Long the prerogative of the imperial family of the Rising Sun, it recalls the legendary porcelain skin, typical of Japanese women. Today it is integrated with the latest generation of molecular complexes. La Longevity Silk Experience (50 minuti, 130 euro) della The Longevity Suite, la spa di Laqua by the Lake, the new Casa al Lago di Cinzia and Antonino Cannavacciuolo on Lake Orta, provides that the Kobido massage (a mix of pressures, percussion and kneading on specific acupuncture points, the tsubo) is performed by wearing cocoons of pure silk on the fingers , rich in Sericin M, the queen protein of silk, which firms and restructures the oval. The protocol is completed by the Luxury Silk Mask, a silk fleece mask with three layers that, positioned on the face, neck and décolleté, release a peptide cascade that stimulates a greater production of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin. The goal is not only a natural lifting, ideal for all skin types, both male and female, but also an interesting glowy effect.
