Living in Hong Kong often means we’re dealing with drastic weather changes. When summer finally ends and we stop having to deal with the humidity, it’s time to prepare ourselves for battling colder weather and dry skin. Though they say beauty comes from within, there’s nothing wrong with sticking to a skin regimen that helps you combat the pollution and icy breeze. From diamond treatments to gold facials, we’ve selected some of the best treatments to help you hydrate and rejuvenate your skin this fall.
Diamond Experience Facial at The Oriental Spa
The beauty industry is always changing and to keep up with the trends, and spas have to continuously reinvent their treatments. The Oriental Spa prides itself on innovative treatments, and the Diamond Experience Facial (between HK$2,800 and HK$2,950) is no exception. Regenerate and energise your skin for fall with a facial that penetrates into the deepest layers of your skin. Reinforcing your skin’s natural defences, you’ll be able to maintain a long-lasting hydration level that doesn’t just improve elasticity, but also prepares your skin to battle the cold weather.

Instant Light Complexion Facial at The Peninsula Spa
Cleopatra may have been the first woman to ever reap the benefits of gold facial masks but these days they’ve become the go-to beauty treatment for many women. With its anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties, the Instant Light Complexion Facial from Margy’s Monte Carlo featuring a 24-carat gold chain mask (HK$3,900), available at The Peninsula Spa, is a perfect treatment for fall. While stimulating cellular growth, it also detoxes, stimulates, regenerates, illuminates and fights dryness of the skin.

Aroma Radiance Lift Facial at MiraSpa
We’ve been a longtime fan of Aromatherapy Associates’ skincare products, and their Aroma Radiance Lift Facial (between HK$1,260 and HK$1,300) at MiraSpa is a must-try for those who prefer an all-natural treatment. Toning the muscles of the face and neck, the treatment uses a micro-current machine for the best results. The enzymatic peel brightens your complexion and detoxifies the skin. Get rid of puffiness and dark circles while giving your face a natural lift and radiant glow.
