STAY GOLDEN




















Metamorphosis Day Spa | 127 East 57th Street, NYC | Ph: 212 751 6051 

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! I took a little "off-duty" time to visit my favorite spa in NYC, Metamorphosis located uptown on 57th street. (they literally have the BEST facials) I needed some time to myself to relax and regroup. You have to invest in yourself, sometimes taking an afternoon at the spa is much needed. I noticed my skin breaking out A LOT lately (stress and not taking care of myself properly), also my face has been extremely dry from the change in the seasons. 

I wanted to get a facial that would hydrate, and improve the overall color of my skin tone after all the damages this summer from the sun. Metamorphosis offers a really unique "Golden Glow" facial that includes a 24k gold and pomegranate face mask. That just sounded like heaven to me! Who wouldn't want to lather themselves in gold?! Little did I know all of the benefits gold actually has, and how it has been used for years since ancient times on the skin. 

The facial started off like any other- cleaning, toner, steam, extractions (which is all extremely professional and done well), and then my aesthetician used a pumpkin exfoliation which was amazing. I loved the smell of it, and I felt it added some nice color and glow to my skin. Then the 24k gold mask was applied. It did not tingle or burn, it went on very smooth and has the bright gold look when applied with two coats. I literally felt like an ancient Egyptian queen.  Then a lip perfifane was applied to hydrate any cracks or dryness. I asked my very knowledgable aesthetician what are some of the benefits, and I was completely floored to hear so many!
