We all know that skin takes a battering during the doldrums of winter, leading to dull, dry skin that begs for serious spoiling. We’ve done some excruciating legwork (it was hard, trust us!) to test-drive a few top treatments available at Vancouver spas and have compiled our list of top picks below.
Golden Caviar Facial At Shangri-La’s CHI Spa
You’ll be putting your best face forward in no time once you’ve had a facial at the Shangri-La’s CHI Spa. We’re talking about one of their signature facials — perfect for infusing life back into dull, winter-buffed skin. Spoil yourself with the Golden Caviar Facial that uses caviar extract to help skin bind and manage moisture levels to prevent premature aging due to environmental factors (chilly winter temps, anyone?). Your skin’s tone will be left feeling even and radiant post-luxurious service. Not sure what service best suits your skin? Opt for the Refresher Facial and score a customized mask made just for you.
SkinCeuticals Advanced Clinical Spa
Project Skin MD: SkinCeuticals Advanced Clinical Spa is where we head when in our skin is in serious need of some dermatological-guided nourishment. Tucked just off South Granville, this stylish medical spa is a welcome reprieve from our hectic daily routine – and the place to head to for specialized facial treatments during the rainy season. Your best bet: try out a customized clinical peel that will help revive dull, patchy skin during winter in 60 minutes or less. Another top pick: book a medical-grade facial treatment at their SkinCeuticals Advanced Clinical Spa and walk away feeling years younger (well, maybe not years… but you’ll definitely feel fresh).
Detox Body Exfoliation At Sabai Thai Spa
Always one of our go-to favourites for some R&R in the city, Sabai Thai Spa (now with four locations) offers up a selection of services meant to pamper skin during the blustery months of winter. We recommend trying out the one-hour Detox Body Exfoliation treatment to give your skin some serious deep hydration and exfoliation. The service combines the use of a blend of hydrating natural oils and herbs to replenish, polish, and purify dry skin so you walk out feeling like a new version of yourself.
January Seaweed Detox Special At The Miraj Hammam Spa
A visit to South Granville’s Miraj Hamman Spa is like stepping into another world, and we think you’ll love where you land. We recommend you try out their January Seaweed Detox Special, which is a full body masque done with 100% Canadian seaweed to cleanse and exfoliate away toxins. You’ll love this next part: it also works to stimulate the metabolism to help give you a more glowing appearance. Um, hell yeah…who doesn’t want to look revitalized during the grey days of winter?
