As a part of a global initiative for the international hotel brand, The Hoxton will be implementing their Fresh and Fit Festival at each one of their locations around the world. The programming, which will feature 8 days of health and wellness related activations, will help further solidify the brands messaging of being more than just a bed for the night.
The Williamsburg location will have their event on Sunday, February 3rd from 11AM-5PM with the focus on mental and emotional health. To align with the ever-popular #selfcareSunday the event, aptly named “You” Day: Self-Care will feature a bath brew and crystal workshop with HELLEN and mini dermalinfusion facials with GLO Spa as well as free tonics from Golde being served from 1-3PM.
I was able to chat with the founder of GLO Spa, Sai Demirovic about self-care, the event and so much more!
What does ‘self-care’ mean to you?
Self-care to me means doing things that help you to create mental balance in a positive and productive way. Not all self-care may be considered “productive” but if shutting your laptop for the day decreases your stress and anxiety, it could just be what the doctor ordered.
How do you, personally, practice self-care?
Eating healthy is probably my biggest form of self-care, for some reason food has a big mental impact on me and when I’m not eating right, I’m not feeling right. Skin care is also a big deal, I know how sensitive my skin is and when I am actively taking care of it on a daily basis it really shows. A movie before bed also satisfies the film critic in me 🙂
Tell me more about the treatment you’ll be offering on Sunday – dermalinfusion.
The Dermalinfusion facial is a 3 in 1 all you’ll ever need type of treatment. It has a diamond tip that physically exfoliates the surface of the skin, then there’s the vacuum that removes the dirt and debris AND there’s the infusion part where the device is physically pushing the serum into your skin to restore hydration to the dermis.
What are some of your favorite at-home skincare practices?
Even though I am in the biz of skincare, I am a minimalist when it comes to my at home routine. I use IS Clinical Pro-Heal in the morning which has Vitamin C and Retinol, I combine that with their Hydra-cool which is Hyaluronic acid. At night I use IS Clinicals Active Serum which has a small amount of glycolic, salicylic and lactic acid. I almost never need to add a moisturizer on top of this.
What is your favorite treatment you’re offering at GLO Spa right now?
The Dermalinfusion is my absolute favorite treatment and that’s why I’m bringing it to the Hoxton, there just isn’t a treatment that compares!
