What do you get when you take a massage and fitness supervisor who’s trained more than 150 people in excellent customer service, and mix her expertise with creativity and organic products? Purely You Spa, a surprising oasis on the third floor of the Agostino Design Center in Naples. Jennifer Alvarez took what she learned about spas and service during eight years at The Ritz-Carlton Spa and opened her own in March. “I tried to include everything I have heard people say they want in a spa,” she says. Services include a reclining, waterless manicure and pedicure, facial and skin care, makeup, massage, body treatments and airbrush tanning.
A Brighter Day
La Prairie, the Swiss iconic skin care giant, has launched multitasking Cellular Radiance Emulsion SPF 30 to brighten, hydrate and protect complexions while boosting luminosity and fighting effects of aging. The light emulsion includes a rich treasure trove of ingredients: colloidal gold, quartz crystals, reflecting pigments, a golden peptide and super-hydrating plant extracts. It evens skin tone, prevents age spots, increases collagen, banishes wrinkles, and shields against destructive free radicals. With all those benefits packed into one age-defying emulsion, you’ll reach for it every morning. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Waterside Shops.
The Ritz-Carlton, Naples celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary starting next month by giving guests the treatment—silver-themed services ranging from ionic facials to foot cleanses. Guests will benefit from the healing power of silver with a silver ion anti-aging masque or ionic foot cleanse. Other treatments add festive glitter, such as the Silver Express Manicure and Pedicure, Glam and Glitz Airbrush Makeup, and Shimmer and Shine Spray Tanning. The special spa treatments are just the beginning of a celebration that continues into 2011, with special events planned at the resort in December.
