The Best Facial in NYC?

A facial is one thing, and a massage is another...but both à la fois? The notion of pampering has officially stepped up a notch, thanks to La Prairie's new Rare Facial, a 90-minute treatment available at the Ritz-Carlton Spa. With an aesthetician and a masseuse at your disposal, your skin will be transformed (no, really) thanks to a battery of masks, steam treatments, and of course, products from the brand's almost embarrassingly luxe Platinum Collection. Meanwhile, your feet and hands and other various extremeties will be bathed and rubbed into submission---all while listening to music of your choix. When the heavenly experience winds to a close, linger in the stunning, tout marble lounge with a sweet-smelling neck pillow and even a glass of champers. The effects lasted for weeks, but they really shouldn't---after all, how soon is too soon to return? THE DETAILS: $410, including product samples, The La Prairie at the Ritz-Carlton Spa, 50 Central Park South; (212) 521-6135.
