Trends / Health & Wellness

This past year exploded with fresh, and sometimes bizarre, skin care treatments worthy of a double-take. Here are some new and noteworthy facials to check out, should you dare.

 

The Hydrafacial

This isn’t your typical soothing facial. A handheld hydradermabrasion device gently cleanses, exfoliates and infuses your skin with healing serums meant to moisturize and plump. The machine is equipped with “vortex technology” that whirls around extracting dirt from your face and then pushes nutrients back into it. It feels a bit like your face is going through a car wash, and you come out shiny and new.

 

The Cryo Facial

If you’re ever done a cryotherapy treatment before, imagine that, but for your face. Essentially, vaporized liquid nitrogen is used to freeze your face in order to prompt your skin to firm up and produce more collagen. Added benefits also include reducing inflammation and pore size.

 

The Vampire Facial

This just may be one of those crazy beauty trends we look back on 20 years from now and say “what were we thinking?!.” A Vampire Facial starts by drawing blood from your arm, separating platelet-rich plasma from the blood and then using microdermabrasion techniques on your face before spreading the PRPs across it like a moisturizer. This process promotes healthy activity in skin cells and firm skin.

 

The Hollywood EGF Facial

Here’s where we get really wacky. The high-end Hollywood EGF Facial, otherwise known as “the penis facial” involves a cleanse, peel, micro-needling and a serum that contains epidermal growth factor … a.k.a. stem cells harvested from the foreskin of newborn baby. You read that right! It’s even FDA approved. The cell enzymes encourage rapid cell turnover and immediate benefits like brightening, tightening and wound healing.

Exploring Australia’s Rainforests

When travelers imagine Australia, most do not picture a lush rainforest with a serene waterfall cutting through the trees. However, that is, in fact, reality. Australia is not just desert or Outback. Although famous for its arid weather and desert oasis, Australia is a diverse country and home to some of the most beautiful rainforests in the world. Similar to other rainforests, Australia's are home to dangerous animals and fauna not friendly toward people, but, on the other hand, many have reported taking peaceful nature walks and feeling more connected to the Eerth from exploring the vast rainforest.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
