The hot weather has played havoc on our skin over the last few weeks, bringing on breakouts, dry patches and redness, among other bothers.
But all is not lost – you can rectify the damage and stress the sun has worked onto your skin by treating it to a soothing and rejuvenating facial.
There are tonnes of spas in the City, all offering different facial treatments that promise to give you a glowing complexion. So, to help you choose, we’ve rounded up the crème de la crème of facials in the area.
The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square
VOYA Deluxe Facial Experience
Treat your face to the ultimate in care, with The Four Season’s VOYA Deluxe Facial Experience.
After laying down comfortably, your treatment will begin with a gentle back massage – the best way to ease you into relaxation mode – and will be followed by a 70-minute results-driven hydrating and purifying facial, including a 20-minute facial massage to deeply hydrate your skin.
The piece de resistance of the treatment is the dual action facial mask to finish, which utilises the exclusive re-mineralising ‘Mermaid’s Purse’ and ‘Laminaria Seaweed Leaves’.
You’ll leave the room feeling above the clouds, with rejuvenated skin that’s both hydrated and plumped.

Anika Spa at the Dorsett City Hotel
Facial of All Facials
The name says it all, here – Anika’s Facial of All Facials provides all you could want from a treatment: skin revival, a brighter complexion and complete relaxation.
First, your skin will be analysed by an expert therapist, who will then cleanse, tone and exfoliate your skin to help unblock your pores. Next, you’ll be treated to a glimmering gold mask, as well as a neck, shoulder and scalp massage to pass the time while the mask does its magic.
The treatment is completed by a pressure point hand and arm massage, a facial serum, eye treatment and moisturise.
