Heaven on Earth Day Spa founder Pila Xian.
With the start of each new year, Aspen Peak editors are often asked for advice on where to go for skin pick-me-ups. Top of our list this month is a visit to Heaven On Earth Day Spa for the new January Island Escape Facial (60 minutes/$95 during January, normally $130).
Heaven on Earth founder Pila Xian, who’s lived in Thailand and Hawaii, knows a thing or two about the healing powers of a beach clime. Combining this with her recent discovery of a new, natural skincare line, Skin Scripts, her latest facial delivers a powerful, vitamin- and hydration-rich punch. “This facial is ultra hydrating due to its high coconut content that quickly absorbs into the skin,” Xian explains.
The treatment begins with a natural cleanse to ease sun- and wind-damaged skin. Next, soothing coconut and papaya enzymes are employed as exfoliants “Papaya is known as nature's natural scalpel to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, leaving skin softer and smoother.” The kicker is a seaweed mask that penetrates lipids deep into the skin, revealing a purified new you. Xian is also known for her popular 0xygen Facial; add this “notox botox” around the lips and eyes for the ultimate finish.
“Within three weeks of incorporating Skin Scripts into my skin care I noticed my face was tighter, firmer, less lined, and unbelievably hydrated for this time of year,” Xian adds. Of equal note is the Skin Scripts price point. With all products under $50, including our favorites, a green tea cleanser and a peptide-packed eye serum (bye, bye dark circles), it relieves the post-holiday financial hangover, too. 205 S.
