Celebrity Skin Secrets From Cannes, Revealed-------
The perfectly painted lips, sultry smoky eyes, and polished coifs seen on the red carpet at Cannes over the past week don’t just happen. Hair and makeup teams have been flown to the Riviera from around the globe to attend to the bevy of starlets promoting their flicks there. Dior has even set up an entire beauty suite with hair help from Odile Gilbert and her team. Maintaining a radiant complexion on the premiere circuit takes more than an expert face painter, though. Enter the new U Spa Barrière at the Hôtel Majestic Barrière. The 450-square-meter relaxation cocoon with ocean views uses Sisley’s phyto-aromatic skincare line and features a “water paradise booth,” in which hot and cold showers intermingle with fragrance, sound, and light for a true multi-sensory experience. Naomi Campbell and Mary J. Blige have already been invited to experience the range of anti-stress, purifying, and energizing face and body rituals, and Kate Beckinsale indulged in Sisley’s new Supreme Anti-Age Treatment earlier this week. The house specialty, it combines the benefits of Sisley’s new Supremya at Night cream, an emollient salve that capitalizes on the most recent advances in the field of chronobiology and skin physiology, with an in-depth antiaging massage. The treatment is exclusive to the Barrière for six months, but fingers crossed it will arrive at other Sisley spas like, say, Sense at New York’s Carlyle Hotel, soon thereafter. The Upper East Side is no Cannes, but it is a tad more convenient for us.
