The Most Awesomely Indulgent Facial Ever? This Local Spa Has It

EPIC-64slide
It’s a cosmetic contradiction we can count on annually — just as the holiday season kicks in, with fireplaces blazing, tree lights twinkling, and fancy candles that smell like Christmas flickering warmly, our skin adopts a perfectly un-festive shade of dull. So we were very intrigued to learn that Old Town Alexandria's Lorien Hotel & Spa is offering the most insanely luxe skin special — a 24-karat gold facial.
This spin on the royal treatment exfoliates all those dead layers of skin using a natural 24-karat gold ion formula and packs a mega moisture boost thanks to a platinum-infused serum. If that doesn’t satisfy your craving for festive face care, the finishing touch is a gold emulsion that protects your newly beautified mug from wrinkles. Sounds like what we'll all need after all the Black Friday craziness, right? The 80-minute treatment costs $200 and is available now through February 2012.
Where: Lorien Hotel & Spa, 1600 King Street, Alexandria; 703-894-5130.
