Washington DC: Facials 2401 15th Street NW 202-681-0598 Regular price: $110 for 50 minutes InStyle deal: $88 Book an AppointmentBlue Heaven Spa 2013 Web Exclusive InStyle Best Beauty Buy Pick The first thing that surprised our tester about this Ayurdevic spa in northwest Washington was its free parking (“Unheard of in D.C.!” exclaimed our reporter).
Also a little unusual? The skin-typing technique that factors into the customizable facials: Pros ask visitors basic questions (like, ‘Is your skin oily or dry?), as well as more unusual queries, (like, ‘Have you been feeling stressed lately? How many hours of sleep have you been clocking?’). Once the consultation concludes, the facial itself can include an application of essential oils, and an anti-aging serum loaded with peptides and Vitamin C to brighten. Our tester’s favorite part? The practical, daily skin tips she received from her pro. “I’ve already changed my routine according to her advice, and now exfoliate every night and use a hydrating mask while in the shower.”
