The lowdown: In Hindu, “kesar” means “saffron,” so it is no wonder this pricy spice is at the core of the newly launched KeSARI facial at agua at Delano. The Indian beauty line mixes time-honored ingredients and modern-day science, leaving both skin and hair with a luminous glow.
“Saffron has been used in Indian beauty rituals and KeSARI brings this beauty secret to all,” KeSARI Brand Ambassador Renee Lucas says.
The ‘hood: The spa is nestled on the penthouse level of the iconic Delano hotel, right in the heart of South Beach.
The vibe: It is evident design darling Philippe Starck has left his mark at agua. An all-white palette, sheer curtains and glamorous terrace overlooking the ocean create a soothing sanctuary.
The highlights: Indulge in the 60-minute KeSARI Saffron Glow Facial ($170), which commences with a customary Indian footbath, followed by a facial and topped off with heady-scented hair serum.
Plus, for a limited time, when guests book a KeSARI Saffron Glow Facial appointment between January 30 and February 2, 2012, they will receive a complimentary full size Pore Minimizing Clay Masque ($29.50) to take home. Glow for it, readers.
