Best Face Forward

There’s a reason it’s called holiday spirit. A glass of merlot here, some egg nog there, a cosmo (or two) at the office party … pretty soon pre-five-o’clock tippling is the norm.

One part of you that isn’t enjoying the party? Your pretty little face. Dryness, redness, breakouts — ‘tis the season to be splotchy.

Get your punim to the Splash Spa at the Sports Club/LA for the Holiday Detox facial. Nestle yourself under the blankets on a heated massage bed. The treatment begins with a heavenly smelling lemon cleanser, followed by a citrus scrub (which removes dehydrated skin caused by excessive boozing) and warm compresses with chamomile, rose, and pine (to soothe the skin). Then it’s time for extractions. Next up? The triple mask treatment: Parsley-cucumber lightens and detoxifies, menthol tightens, and pumpkin-orange hydrates. While the mask does its thing, enjoy a hand and neck massage. Finishing touches: antiaging serum and nourishing cream.

Voila! Your skin will look rested, radiant, and ready for the next round of parties.

Hmm. Best to book another appointment now.
