Dyanna Body and Nail Spa: Caviar facial
The treatment: Specialist Alla Mintc applied a series of German brand Farah Beauty Wellness's Caviar DNA products, which contained caviar extract rather than actual fish eggs. A light cleansing lotion prepped my skin for a fruity-smelling peeling lotion and an alcohol-free tonic.
The final touch: a gentle aloe-and-almond mask, which left my face super smooth.
The purported benefits: Caviar contains peptides and essential amino acids, which help regenerate skin cells and stimulate their metabolism. Posttreatment, skin is supposed to look younger, healthier and more lustrous.
The results: I had major concerns that I'd reek of fish, but Mintc allayed my fears by patiently answering all my questions and explaining the products she was going to use. Prior to the facial, I was channeling Rudolph with a red, dry wind-burned nose. Afterward, my face looked bright and dewy. • 212-995-2355, dyannaspa.com. 45 minutes $60.
