With the onset of fall and the colder weather it brings, I’ve noticed quite a difference in my skin. In desperate need of hydration, it calls out for attention. Unfortunately, despite a closet full of skin-quenching products, I’m somewhat at a loss to get it back on track. That’s when I heard that the Somme Institute, a skincare company known for its proprietary technology, was teaming up with Oscar Blandi, the Naples-born renowned hairstylist, to offer a host of facial treatments at his namesake New York City salon. Last week, I decided to give my skin a break and went to check it out. The Somme Institute is offering three Vitamin Infusion Professional Treatments, all containing Somme’s MDT5 (Molecular Dispersion Technology 5), a compound of five essential vitamins that are highly engineered to penetrate the skin and treat sun damage, discoloration, acne, and fine lines and wrinkles. I experienced The Somme Institute “Miracle” Vitamin Infusion Treatment ($135, 50 minutes), which focuses on the face, neck, décolleté, shoulders, and hands. While you wouldn’t think getting a facial in the midst of a noisy salon would be a relaxing experience, esthetician Michelle Reid had me calm as can be in the cozy cabin in no time. And even more importantly, she had my skin glowing like the picture of good health.
