Facial treatments are included in many of these packages, which offer purifying and rehydrating properties to skin that is often exposed to the harsh elements of cold/hot air, UV rays and pollution. They also promise to refresh the skin, cleanse the pores and revitalize skin to leave you feeling younger. If you are combining these spa and pamper treatments with hitting the town, facials can leave you feeling your most essential, confident self.
