The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York has introduced oxygen-intensified healing waters in its men’s and women’s Vitality Pools with the installation of technology from Oxygen Pur Spa. The spa is the first spa in the world to adopt Oxygen Pur Spa’s proprietary, infusion technology, which brings the therapeutic benefits of oxygen to spa-goers for enhanced wellbeing. Using the system, the spa’s Vitality Pools now feature supersaturated levels of dissolved oxygen, 20 times more than what is found in normal tap water. By using the oxygen-intensified Vitality Pools, guests can absorb increased oxygen through the skin, the largest organ in the body, substantially boosting oxygen levels in body tissue. Benefits of increased oxygen can include better skin cell respiration, which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, age spots, and wrinkles, leaving skin clearer, softer, and healthier. Increased oxygen levels also assist with an overall release of toxins in the body, increased circulation, and elevated energy levels for a feeling of enhanced overall wellness. For visitors to this award-winning spa, it’s a true breath of fresh air.

At an event held on Thursday, April 23rd at Senses New York Salon & Spa in the Flat Iron District in Manhattan, Ilike Organic Skin Care introduced its newest product—Magnetic Skin Therapy. Based on the idea that magnetic energy has regulating and beneficial effects on the skin, and that environmental effects depolarize the skin cells, this product works by magnetically stimulating iron-containing red blood cells. This stimulation helps gets tissue fluids flowing and brings more oxygen to the skin, which helps reduce inflammation, increase cell metabolism, and boost cell reproduction. Magnetic Skin Therapy also contains nutrient-rich herbs such as castor oil, which hydrates; elderflower, which softens and smoothes skin; lemongrass, which refreshes and tightens; locust flower, which heals; horsetail, lavender, and yarrow, which calm and soothe skin; and walnut leaf, which is an anti-inflammatory.

Soho is one of my favorite New York City neighborhoods, so when I noticed a Dermalogica sign in the window of a store on Grand Street last fall during a weekend shopping trip, I hurried back to the office to get the scoop. I was thrilled to hear about the up-and-coming opening of a new Dermalogica concept store, and I recently attended a breakfast to celebrate its debut. The store is a perfect fit for the trendy neighborhood, and the cool first-floor space is a wonderful solution for on-the-go New Yorkers in need of a speedy skincare fix. Among the highlights are two Skin Bar stations where clients can sample products and receive a complimentary Face Mapping skin analysis, as well as two stations for MicroZone Treatments. Ideal for walk-in clients, a selection of 20-minute targeted sessions that address specific needs are performed there. The store also features Dermalogica’s iconic SkinPod treatment room for more in-depth treatments. During the breakfast, I got a Skin Mapping analysis and was invited back for a service in the SkinPod. It will be the perfect place to get glam before heading around the corner to my fave neighborhood restaurant, Antique Garage.
