We're keeping our skin looking its summer best with a little help from the sea ... and our friends at CHI, The Spa at Vancouver's fabulous Shangri-La Hotel.
CHI's newest offering, the Marine Therapy Journey, is a two-hour, full-body treatment that leverages the detoxifying powers of British Columbia’s very own natural marine botanicals: think certified-organic whole seaweeds, marine minerals and ocean mud that work to deeply hydrate, gently detoxify, balance pH levels and reduce the visible signs of aging, just in time for skin-baring season! It starts with a vigorous dry brushing that stimulates blood flow and exfoliates the skin. Then a firming seaweed gel wrap is applied, sushi-roll style, and left on for 30 minutes to soak in. Next, a shower and eucalyptus-scented steam in your private steam room before a soothing marine facial cleanse featuring Seaflora Skincare products. Lastly, a luxe massage, combining lymphatic drainage and knuckling techniques to further release toxins in the body, leaving you feeling refreshed and toned.
Some skin-credible seaweed facts: these macroalgae are regarded as the richest mineral and vitamin source in the plant kingdom and are infused with essential amino acids and vitamins to help firm the appearance of skin, while fatty acids and beta-carotene increase vitality, leaving skin feeling vibrant and youthful. As for the CHI Marine Therapy Journey: it starts at $325 per person and is available exclusively in Vancouver at CHI, The Spa, located on the fifth floor of Shangri-La Hotel. To make a reservation or request further information, call 604-695 2447 or visit the website. —Noa Nichol
