I finally set aside some “me time” for a facial at the beachfront Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, Calif. Yet, this was no ordinary facial.
It literally takes place in a bubble. Yet, Natura Bissé’s Bubble Pure Air is the type of bubble you actually want to be in because inside you breathe 99.995% pure oxygen. No pollution. No pathogens. No allergens. Sounds like 100% heaven to me.
After I slipped into a silky soft spa bathrobe, my therapist escorted me to the spa’s outdoor garden that was beautifully styled like a chic Hollywood award show lounge. I sat on an elegant white velvet couch opposite a glass table with bouquets and ice buckets filled with champagne.
In-between the couch and champagne was the bubble. Which looked like a round white tent from the future. Perhaps, this is what it will be like having facials in space? My therapist unzipped the bubble and invited me to step inside. Immediately, I noticed a difference in the air. It had a pureness I hadn’t experienced before.
My facial began with deep breathing as my practitioner assessed my skin for its specific needs which was (as always) hydration. She recommended we use Natura Bissé’s Diamond line, including the Glyco Peel, which felt a touch fiery for a few seconds while the enzymes worked their magic. Out with the old dull complexion. In with tight, bright, and glowing skin. All the while, I breathed 99.995% pure oxygen.
