Cool Summer Skin with Paprika Hot Stimulating Peel!

File this under bright ideas.  On a 90-plus degree afternoon in New York City Everything She Wants visited Cecilia Wong Skincare (215 Park Avenue) for a 30-minute Paprika Hot Stimulating Peel ($100), made with paprika, red pepper and cayenne pepper.

The peel tingled a bit and my face did feel hot initially. But the pepper mixture helps to stimulate the skin and improve circulation.  It also plumps and hydrates, so I knew it would be worth a little discomfort.  After she applied the peel, Cecilia gave me a LED Light Therapy treatment.  She used a blue light, which kills bacteria, unclogs pores and to help fades acne scars.

Although it sounds like it would have the opposite effect, the peel actually made my face cooler the rest of the day. After every treatment with Cecilia, I can instantly see and feel the results.  Her passion for skin care began at an early age because of her own problem skin.  And she discovered that consuming and using organic ingredients on the skin will keep us healthy inside and out.

I love that Cecilia Wong Skincare uses organic products infused with botanicals and herbs, and the salon recently launched a holistic skin care line.

  1. I never thought that paprika can stimulates the skin for a rosy glow. Hope to find a saloon here that offers the same treatment. Would have been lovely to see a picture of you after your treatment.
