Groom Spa Day? Yes, Please
Welcome to the second post of our ‘Groom’ series where we’ll be talking all about things to do, places to visit, and what to wear on your journey to the big day. In today’s post, we’ll be chatting about a Grooms Spa Day! Yup, I said it- Spa Day- and it’s not only for the ladies.
I visited the Ritz-Carlton Spa, Los Angeles– conveniently located in Downtown LA- for some quality R&R to prep for my engagement dinner. I was scheduled for a custom facial which is part of their new 2016 Menu, and features an expanded line of treatments and massages designed especially for Men. I knew we’d be taking tons of pictures- personal and social- so I wanted my skin to look refreshed and well, youthful. I met with my esthetician at the Ritz and we chatted about my skin needs and concerns. After a quick examination of my skin, we got started on the Red Carpet Treatment full of extractions, masks, and a specialized ‘eye treatment’ that focused on the eye area.
As you guys may have caught on from my Snapchat, I’m a huge fan and advocate for skincare. As we age, it’s important for us to hydrate, protect, and take care of our skin and it’s specific needs. If you’re clueless about your skin type, don’t be intimidated by the Spa. Book a treatment and find out what you need to get that skin looking clean and brand new. A visit to the spa is a great way to pamper yourself before any of your special events leading up to the big day, and believe me, she’s sure to notice!
After my custom men’s facial, I retreated to the ‘Sanctuary Room’ where I met Ashley (after her treatment) for some tea and light snacks. Since this was our first time visiting the Ritz-Carlton, we decided to make a day of it and made reservations at WP24 by Wolfgang Puck on the 24th floor of the property with the most stunning views of Downtown! We sipped rosé at sunset, and grubbed on some delicious meals from the new Spring menu.
I decided to include this experience as part of my Groom series because it’s the perfect opportunity to a) learn about your skin needs so you’re looking fresh on your big day, b) it’s a fun day-to-night date with your girl, and c) it’s amazing R&R time with your groomsmen- Also a great gift to treat the men standing by your side throughout this journey.
