A couple of weeks ago, I found my skin in need of some serious TLC. After a few too many beach days and rooftop happy hours this summer, my complexion looked dull and tired. That’s when I headed to one of my favorite places in the Financial District, GLO Skin & Laser.
Once upon a time, two native New York sisters and expert technicians joined forces to bring amazing skin to the lower Manhattan area and Glo Skin & Laser was formed. One step into the spa and you’ll find yourself in a laid back, friendly atmosphere full of palm leaf canvases and turquoise details.
I’ve been to GLO Skin & Laser once before and was dying to get back as soon as possible. For that, and many other seasons, the new Fire & Ice Facial was calling my name.
The Fire & Ice Facial at GLO Skin & Laser is designed to rapidly resurface your face by combining two very beneficial, therapeutic masks. The first is a powerful intensive resurfacing mask that gives your skin a slight firey sensation--get it? It doesn’t hurt the least bit--and trust me, I’ve had facial treatments that do--but it does make your skin feel warm. This first “fire” step helps resurface your skin.
The second treatment of the Fire & Ice Facial is a soothing rejuvenating mask. And although this is the “ice” portion of the treatment, no, it does not actually feel icy cold. I was bracing myself for that. But it is refreshing! The mask sits on your face for about 15 minutes to soothe and hydrate your resurfaced skin.
This remarkable GLO specialty facial is perfect for all skin types and ages. After the treatment you’ll yourself with a smoother, softer complexion and an increase in cellular renewal. The Fire & Ice Facial can diminish fine lines and wrinkles and the best part is--there’s no downtime, peeling, or irritation.
One look in the mirror after my facial and I was literally glowing! I didn’t think it was possible to really see results that quickly, but my skin looked brighter and smoother already. I was hooked. Bye, bye dull skin.
If you ever find yourself in FiDi with some extra time on your hands, you need to pay GLO Skin & Laser a visit. The Fire & Ice Facial costs only $120 and takes less than an hour.
