JA­PANESE SAKE FA­CIAL RE­TREAT

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Spa Awards 2016 -

SMOOTH OPE RA­TOR Yearn­ing for smooth, baby-soft skin? Sake is the an­swer. Other than be­ing Ja­pan’s sig­na­ture bev­er­age, Ja­panese rice wine also con­sists of prop­er­ties that can help beau­tify the skin. Nat­u­ral ko­jic acid from sake can be very pu­ri­fy­ing, by dis­cour­ag­ing melanin pro­duc­tion, im­prov­ing ra­di­ance, and soft­en­ing the skin. The ben­e­fits are dis­tin­guish­ably part of the Ja­panese her­itage – used by geishas for cen­turies as an ex­fo­li­at­ing, bright­en­ing, and detox­i­fy­ing elixir. ULT I MAT E LUX­URY In­spired by the ser­vice you’ll re­ceive at a tra­di­tional Ja­panese inn – a foot soak, hot green tea, and de­lec­ta­ble sushi snacks – Era­belle of­fers an au­then­tic ex­pe­ri­ence of the Ja­panese cul­ture, hos­pi­tal­ity, and ser­vice right here in the city. 9 0 M I NUTE S O F B LI S S The lux­u­ri­ous fa­cial con­sists of two cus­tomised masks, blended to­gether for a de­light­ful ex­pe­ri­ence. First, an en­zyme com­press mask made from a sake kasu (dregs) paste is used to clar­ify pores. Then, the clay mask, blended with a base oil and in­fused with pre­mium sake, will work to re­move dead skin cells, detox­ify, soften, and add ra­di­ance to the skin. Cou­pled with a scalp, shoul­der, and face mas­sage, this splen­did re­treat will leave your skin feel­ing pam­pered and rein­vig­o­rated. FF227, Fourth Floor, The Gar­dens Mall.
