The Windy City is home to some of the most elegant and stylish hotels on the planet, which is good news for spa goers. Whether you’re a dyed-in-the-wool local or visiting the city for the first time, indulging in a wellness treatment is always a good idea. Consistently at the forefront of luxury, The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago, an iconic property near Lake Michigan and within the Water Tower Place, is home to the first Luzern branded spa room in the country.
After a day learning about historic architecture, shopping along the celebrated Magnificent Mile, visiting top attractions like Navy Pier, the Art Institute of Chicago, Millennium Park, 360 Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art, all of which are nearby, you’ll likely want to take a break and treat yourself to a bit of relaxation and repose.
Experience the Ritz-Carlton Spa, Chicago’s brand-new facial treatment suite, designed with the five elements of Feng Shui: earth, air, fire, water, and sound. The plush and heated bed, with a built-in blue tooth speaker for relaxing music, utilizes a quartz crystal mat. The Luzern branded art pieces and crystals spread throughout create a welcoming and soothing ambiance. All you have to do is unwind. Spring is the perfect time for an awakening of the senses.
The Luzern Signature Force de Vie facial treatment, newly offered at the Ritz-Carlton, Chicago by K’Alma, resets your skin by utilizing Swiss Alpine Organics, which hydrates the skin without being too harsh or abrasive. Your 80-minute facial will leave your face feeling clean, moisturized, and plump. Facials are personalized to work with your specific skin needs and the treatment is designed to replenish your face and décolletage.
As most people are busy with full lives, working, raising children, and traveling from point A to point B for work or pleasure, skin can often be left neglected and overexposed to harmful ultraviolet rays and sun damage. Most dermatologists would recommend not only limiting your time in the sun, but also, applying sunscreen, cleaning your skin gently, exfoliating, and moisturizing.
To the rescue, Luzern makes skincare with age-defying correctives, incorporating a facial massage, gentle exfoliation, and mask application into the spa treatment. In addition, topical oxygen infusions distribute vitamins, nutrients, minerals, peptides, and the ever-so-important antioxidants.
Clean beauty essentials from Luzern, sourced sustainably for over 20 years, may also be purchased online so you can continue to benefit while at home. Well-loved and reviewed products include Crème Luxe, Serum Absolut Firming Collagen Booster, Firming Facial Mist, and Detox Cleansing Masque.
Reserve a spa treatment on any day of the week and make sure you give yourself extra time to enjoy the swimming pool, steam room, and sauna. The Carlton Club membership, perfect for locals, grants access to the fitness facilities, pool, and spa.
