It’s an unpopular opinion but I don’t mind the cold really. However, the polar vortex that just hit America was even a little much for me. For me, I can handle the frigid temperatures but I absolutely hate how it makes my skin feel. Winter skin is not cute, plain and simple.
There’s nothing worse than your face feeling tight and dry 24/7. Not only does it lead to dry patches and peeling (So. Gross.), but it’s just painful. With temperatures in NYC in the negatives, I was desperate to find something to salvage my complexion. That’s when I turned to GLO Spa NY.
GLO Spa NY is this trendy, laid-back spa located in the Financial District in Manhattan that specializes in laser and skin care treatments. It was founded by two native New York sisters and skilled estheticians who are equally as likely to chat skincare with you, as they are to discuss all things shopping related. It's personally one of my favorite places to go in the city when my skin is in need of a little TLC.
The JetPeel At GLO Spa NY Addresses All Of Your Skincare Needs
The JetPeel is a must for anyone with dull winter skin. It’s a non-invasive facial that delivers immediate results without any downtime, skin irritation, or pain. First, using a supersonic jet stream of water and oxygen it removes skin debris and exfoliates away dead skin cells. This oxygenates the tissue and stimulates micro-circulation and lymphatic drainage, as well. Following this first step, the pen-like-device infuses Alpha Hydroxy, Glycolic, and Hyaluronic Acids, as well as other vitamins, into your skin to nourish, treat, and protect.
The hour-long facial can be best described as a power wash for your face (in a really good way), as explained by Saime Demirovic, one of the GLO founders. It feels cool on your skin which makes for a very relaxing experience. Picture jade rolling but kicked up a notch.
The key to its effectiveness is the jet stream that is used to apply the serums; it pushes the nutrients into the Dermis to address your skincare issues from within. Depending on your needs, Demirovic customizes the nutrients to help your skin. For my combination skin, she infused Glycolic Acid to dry up any breakouts under the surface, followed by Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate.
The JetPeel Is Great for Treating The Following Skin Conditions:
--Uneven Skin Tones
--Acne & Blackheads
--Oliy & Congested Skin
Just one day post-facial my skin was glowing, clear, and most importantly, super hydrated. I experienced absolutely no flakiness or dryness during the days following, no matter how low the temperatures dipped outside. After one more follow up session a week later, I really started to notice a difference. My skin felt and looked the best it had all season. Not only did it save my dry skin, but it banished any acne flare-ups that I was experiencing at the time.
I'm sold: the JetPeel is a winter skin hero. I mean, just look at that glow!
