Celebrities spend tons of money on skincare and spa treatments but from April 13 – 19, and you can get normally pricey massages and facials for only $50! Learn more about Spa Week and learn how to get glowing skin at home all year long below!
We often talk about recreating makeup looks from celebrities like Katy Perry and Demi Lovato, glossing over the fact that a ton of work goes into their face before we admire their bronzed glows or no-makeup makeup looks. So if your skin isn’t quite ready for a makeup-free selfie like Katy and Demi, check out our best picks for getting smaller pores, restoring hydration and evening and brightening your skin tone.
Spa Week 2015 — Get Glowing
It doesn’t matter how many expensive creams and serums you apply to your skin if you’re not getting rid of all the dead skin cells, oil and dirt that sit on your skin and clogs your pores, which is exactly why celebs like Katy, Brittany Snow and Kate Winslet are fans of the HydraFacial MD.
You can get the no-downtime facial for only $50 during Spa Week. Click here to find a location near you.
The in-office treatment can get pretty pricey, so between treatments, we recommend using ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment, $22, on makeup-free skin. ExfoliKate contains natural exfoliants like lactic acid and papaya, pineapple and pumpkin enzymes to clear pores without causing irritation. Plus, it has aloe vera, honey and vitamin E to leave skin smooth.
Once skin is clean, apply Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner, $16, to restore moisture and clarity. Finish up your at-home facial just like they do at spas like Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa with a moisturizer to calm your skin and rehydrate. Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Powered By Ceramide Moisture Cream, $50, not only moisturizes, but it also contains SPF 30 and works to fight signs of aging.
To splurge on some in-spa pampering during Spa Week, we recommend the Kiehl’s Spa 1851 Spa Week Ultra Facial With Extractions and The Red Door’s Spa Week De-Stress Body Treatment, which is a dry scrub, body wrap and mini massage that leaves your skin soft and supple.
Instantly Better Skin Under $50 — Here’s How
