Best Facial NYC in New York Magazine

Shizuka New York Day Spa, 7 West 51st Street, 6th Floor, New York, NY 10019

Renee Zellwegger and Meryl Streep could have picked any facialist to make them Oscar-night-ready, but they both opted for the skilled hands and machinery of NYC-based Tracie Martyn. A native of England and a former makeup artist, Martyn does a facial that runs the gamut–beginning witn a cleansing and exfoliation with active enzymes, then moving on to electronic muscle stimulation for toning. When all is taut, she finishes with a misting from an oxygen tank for that extra-dewy glow.

In between your splurges, Shizuka New York Day Spa does a thorough facial treatment for a wallet-friendly $85 and a wonderful combination of cleansing and electronic stimulation [Lifting Facial] for $150.
