Exposure to toxins, pollution and environmental stressors can take a toll on skin that’s already battled a dry winter climate. A renewing facial for spring can do the trick, but it still doesn’t fully protect skin from external factors. Natura Bissé has created a way to grant your skin care wishes.
For the first time, the Natura Bissé Pure Air Bubble 4.0 is available to the public in 18 locations across the US, beginning with Neiman Marcus in Los Angeles in March and ending at Neiman Marcus in St Louis in July. The Bubble’s clean environment circulates 99.995 percent pure, clean air throughout to achieve an effective treatment area free of pollution, bacteria and allergens.
The treatment performed inside the Bubble is “The Mindful Touch” – a wellness experience combining a luxurious Natura Bissé facial with mindful elements. After two years of research, The Mindful Touch was created as a way to achieve inner balance through virtual reality, mindful breathing and skin care.
Begin the 60-minute treatment by turning your focus to breathing and body sensations through an immersive virtual reality experience. The goal is to reach a state of relaxed mindfulness that will put you in touch with your mental and physical wellbeing through the senses. If mindfulness isn’t something you’ve practiced in the past, not to worry – as the virtual reality portion ends, the treatment continues with a soothing voice-over designed to maintain tranquility and mindful awareness through the next step.
The 3D Collagen Shock Facial uses three types of collagen for their regenerative benefits: increasing firmness, improving elasticity and boosting hydration. The “touch,” or Active Facial Contouring Technique, works to give you a sculpted look through improved circulation and lymphatic drainage, rather than having to resort to a contoured makeup technique.
“The Mindful Touch: Your Mindfulness Spa Experience is a 360 degree beauty ritual which combines, for the first time in the spa industry, a results-oriented skin care protocol with mindfulness and virtual reality,” said Patricia Fisas, Board Member and Director of Innovation and Product Development for Natura Bissé, in speaking to Elite Traveler. “The virtual reality and the mindfulness techniques help the client enjoy the present moment like never before, disconnecting from the day to day worries and stress and reconnecting with themselves…The client feels completely renewed and serene, and that relaxed mood reflects on their skin, which then looks smooth, luminous and radiant.”
With the purchase of four Natura Bissé products, guests are eligible to receive a free facial inside the Pure Air Bubble. For more information or to make an appointment for a facial, please visit naturabisse.com. See the full list of cities in The Mindful Touch tour here.
