Winter may not have arrived in Hong Kong just yet, but you can now experience the bracing cold at The Ritz
Carlton Spa ( ritzcarlton.com), which has partnered with London-based skincare label 111SKIN to launch a trio of brand-new cryotherapy facial and massage treatments. Using purified air chilled to -30°C, the exclusive 60- or 90-minute facials are suited to jet-setters and residents exposed to higher levels of pollution; extremely low temperatures have the effect of exfoliating dead cells, reducing puffiness, firming up the skin, and helping to attain a brighter complexion. Meanwhile, sports enthusiasts can opt for a 60-, 90-, or 120-minute session that combines full-body cryotherapy with deep-tissue and sports massages to soothe fatigued muscles. The final offering is a half-hour cryotherapy energy cellulite treatment— intended to stimulate microcirculation and the lymphatic system—which can be added on to other spa therapies.
