As if Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa wasn’t already one of our favorite luxe locales in the area, now their updated selection of products and treatments has made visiting this gorgeous spa even more tempting. The resort is now the only location in Scottsdale to carry leading skin care line Skin Authority’s products and offer their treatments. As a part of the line’s launch at Sanctuary, I recently received a Skin Authority facial—and I have to admit, this is one “indulgence” that has now become a necessity in my life.
Before you write these products off as just more tubes of goop to clutter your bathroom counter, listen up. Skin Authority, founded by Celeste Hilling, is a premier skin care lifestyle brand, offering 25 home care products and 19 professional products. The company truly believes that each person deserves their own unique skin care plan, as everyone is different. In one customized treatment, new pathways into the skin tissue are developed, enabling the deepest parts of your skin tissue to be nourished and create new cell production.
The Skin Authority Lifestyle Program is customized to fit your skin care needs and make healthy changes—it includes a professional skin analysis, facial and body treatments, home care products and kits and an at-home skin care “coach” to assist you with your program. Treatments include Transformation for the Face, Body and Soul Rituals and Transformation for the Hands and Feet. No matter what you’re focus area is, all of the offerings use Skin Authority signature products, including high-concentration ingredients at the lowest penetrating pH. Another perk is that all things Skin Authority are paraben, dye and added fragrance-free, and many are packaged in biodegradable materials, helping to contribute to a sustainable lifestyle.
If it’s new and effective products you’re after, the Skin Authority Web site is able to suggest an item or kit to meet your particular needs. This is helpful, as the amount of products available can be a bit overwhelming at first. (Although the Bright Eyes Kit, Deep Detox Ritual Mask and Hand Foot Body Restoration all sound like they would work wonders.)
The best part of the face treatment I received? It only lasted a mere 20 minutes, and I walked out with noticeably smoother, healthier skin that simply glowed. In fact, I even received a couple compliments that evening, making it completely worth it.
