Better on you than in you? A new NYC spa treatment harnesses the skincare benefits of wine.

If your plans for the Fourth of July long weekend are no plans—a.k.a. Staycation, a.k.a. You’re too smart to get embroiled in a long weekend travel palaver—consider indulging in a new treatment that marries two of our favorite self-care rituals: rosé and spa facials.

The 130-year-old winemaker Ruffino was founded in Tuscany in 1877—and its sparkling rosé is made with Glera (the grape of Prosecco) blended with small amounts of Pinot Noir. While we completely endorse indulging in a gorgeous glass of rosé on its own (or paired with any variety of dishes—think: fish, chicken, fresh greens), did you know that you can also put rosé on your face?

Ruffino Wines has teamed up with SKINNEY Medspa’s founders Adriana and Mariso Martino to develop a facial treatment that incorporates the winemaker’s signature sparkling rosé. The facial, which is largely inspired by the wine’s tasting notes, features a vitamin C-rich strawberry infusion, hints of organic rose petals (fights free radicals!), toning and detoxifying bubbles, and a refreshing acidity finish that helps remove excess sebum on the skin.

Sound intriguing? The Ruffino Wines x SKINNEY Medspa treatment can be booked online at, and you can experience it first-hand at the spa’s location in New York City.

As for anyone on the road this long weekend, good luck and godspeed (and I’ll be right there with you queueing up at airport security, say hi!). If you’re in the market for some in-transit pampering, make sure to check out XpresSpa’s offerings at your local airport—I can personally vouch for the magical healing properties of a pre-boarding neck-and-shoulder massage session before heading to the gate, and I can’t wait to try out XpresSpa’s new Seaweed Facial, which is rich in vitamins and minerals, and great for pre- or post-flight dehydrated skin.
