I don’t get facials very often; when I have time and feeling solvent in my single existence (or when I finally cave in from stress overload), I’ll usually opt for something that also attends to my poor aching back. However, this time, my face was truly feeling the impact of this long, hard winter. I know I don’t have to explain that. So I decided to visit Bellava Spa in Bedford Hills, a warm and welcoming full service spa facility, no matter what service you choose.
Phyllis DeFreeze performed the traditional European facial and you will all have to excuse me for not taking notes during this precious hour of pure escape (rather defeats the purpose). Suffice it to say that the state of relaxation took me through another busy day and my goal of relieving dryness felt more than met upon touching my new shiny punim (Yiddish for face).
I do know Phyllis used eucalyptus oil at the beginning and the end for a special touch, but it was everything in the relaxing middle of this facial that you might also want to make an appointment for to experience. www.bellavaspa.com
