Haute Couture for Your Face

A Frenchy facial pokes and prods to brighter skin

haute couture facial!

Custom Dior — what for? The only red carpet you see is the wine-soaked rug from last night’s sing-along to The Voice.

Dress up your face instead with a Haute Couture Facial.

Like master tailors, Rescue Rittenhouse’s aestheticians have adapted the treatment from French spa and skin care line founders Biologique Recherche (we hear Jean Paul Gaultier’s a fan).

Start with a fruit acid mask and extractions (pore prodding is easy to forgive after a neck and arms rubdown). High-tech microcurrents then push products deep into the skin (you’ll feel a pinprick), relaxing evidence of squinting at your flat-screen. The result: a glow that shines brighter than Cee Lo’s noggin.

You might need shades.

Available at Rescue Rittenhouse Spa, 255 South 17th Street, second floor (215-772-2766), $200.
