With health, wellness and self-care top of mind in the new year, you may be looking to refresh your skincare routine. Whether you’re planning a wellness-minded vacation in 2022 or are simply looking for new skincare tips to try, we’ve got you covered.
We asked two Hilton spa directors for skincare tips you can work into your daily routine — and curated a list of luxurious treatments you can experience at Hilton properties from Atlanta to Aruba.
Seasonal changes in climate can take a toll on your skin. According to Becky Leuluai, senior director of spa and retail at Tierra Luna Spa, Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, you should switch up your skincare products and treatments depending on the season. In the winter, she recommends using a heavier moisturizer and hyaluronic acid to keep moisture in and avoid dry skin. In the summer, it’s key to use sunscreen — even when it’s cloudy — to protect your skin from damaging UV rays. Her year-round tip is to stay hydrated for skin to keep its elasticity and reduce breakouts.
Leuluai’s favorite treatment at Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort is the Luminous Quartz Facial.
“It’s linked to the heart chakra and encompasses rose quartz crystalline energy, a signature rolling technique that doubles as lymphatic drainage and uses a repeated balance of warm and cool cryotherapy tools. We use signature desert extracts to tone and detoxify your skin and end with a sequence of gua sha. The treatment truly helps to rejuvenate your skin, promote blood circulation and improve fine lines and wrinkles. The perfect facial to start the year.”

When it comes to caring for your skin, there’s more to consider than just cleansers and moisturizers. According to Kelly Gasspari-Fleming, director of spa & wellness at Waldorf Astoria Spa, Waldorf Astoria Chicago, internal hydration is just as important as external. She shared that drinking a gallon of water a day and incorporating lots of fruits and veggies into your diet is a great way to get both natural plant hydration and amazing antioxidants. She also recommends using a humidifier year-round. Her pro-tip is to keep a hydrating mist in your bathroom, bag and nightstand, as one spritz a few times a day will do wonders for your skin’s youthful appearance.
Gasspari-Fleming’s favorite treatment at Waldorf Astoria Chicago is the Diamond Experience Treatment.
“It features our Diamond Glow Facial with the Knesko Diamond Mask. This novel skin resurfacing technology provides simultaneous exfoliation with deep delivery of customized solutions directly to your skin, combined with the Knesko collagen diamond mask that provides an extra layer of ultra-hydration which will plump up fine lines, smooth out your skin’s surface and brighten your natural glow.”
