Sothys Sensitive Skin products
Sothys products and facials offers remedies for sensitive skin.
Many factors, including weather and drastic anti-aging treatments, cause or exacerbate sensitive skin sensitivity. To address and remedy this problem, Sothys has developed a special product line for sensitive skin as well as a facial treatment.
L’Institut Sothys in midtown New York is the flagship of the luxury French line of spa products; it is represented by thousands of spas worldwide, in well over one hundred countries.
In the city, the Sothys spa is a relaxing oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle just outside, and I was more than happy to accept an invitation to experience their 50-minute professional facial treatment for sensitive and reactive skin.
From the moment I stepped inside the spa on a cool, rainy day, the welcome was soothing, low-key and very inviting. My coat and umbrella were quickly removed and I was given a locker in the quiet changing room. Robed and slippered, I was met by my esthetician, taken to a very quiet (hard to believe the city was right outside) treatment room and settled comfortably on the cushioned table.
Though my skin runs normal to oily in the T-zone, it is not hyper-sensitive. But on this day, after a bout of cold weather, it was dry – and more than ready for the soothing treatment that featured the trademarked Spa Thermal Water which comes from the Belgian Ardennes and has been used by spas since the 16th century because of its unique balancing properties. My face was gently yet thoroughly cleansed, and treated with rich and effective botanical products. The highlight of the treatment was the decongesting facial massage with chilled porcelain spoons.
The facial left my skin feeling soothed and ready for whatever lay outside the protection of the spa. Armed with samples of the products that were used, I was ready to maintain to the soothing, cosseting effects of the facial at home.
