HALF MOON BAY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/25/14 -- The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Half Moon Bay introduces the Japanese Pearlescence Facial, a signature treatment that draws upon centuries of ancient beauty secrets to achieve glowing, beautiful skin.
One of the first lessons the Geisha teach is the importance of ritual, and that the ritual is to pause time for a moment to find peace. Their skincare ritual is as elegant as it is simple and consists of four steps for pure, polished, radiant and supple skin. Inspired by an ancient Japanese beauty manuscript that described how women achieved luminous complexions centuries ago, this treatment emphasizes many benefits found in natural, time-tested ingredients like pearls, seaweed, rice bran and green tea.
Combining the wisdom of generations with cutting-edge science and the healing and therapeutic qualities of the sea, the new Japanese Pearlescence Facial provides guests with a relaxing and rejuvenating experience that restores skin to its youthful radiance. Traditional Japanese acupressure techniques also promote lymphatic drainage and boost microcirculation. The 60-minute Pearlescence Facial is $185 USD weekday and $200 USD weekends.
"The Japanese Pearlescence Facial brings back the meaning and ritual of not only taking care of your skin, but taking care of yourself on a deeper level," said Spa Director Alison Abbott. "TATCHA's skin care philosophy of honoring the experience, combined with a results oriented skin care line, provides guests with an education of what it means to take care of your skin and how important it is to be intentional with the process. With crushed pearls and other elements from the sea, this new treatment aligns perfectly with our coastal location," she added.
The 16,000-square-foot Spa offers a lavish setting to indulge in relaxation and rejuvenation. The Half Moon Bay Spa features 16 treatment rooms including 2 couples rooms and 3 facial rooms, as well as a co-ed Roman mineral bath. Resort guests can enjoy signature face and body treatments including the Pumpkin Body Peel, inspired by Half Moon Bay's Northern California location in the 'Pumpkin Capital of the World.'
