Hollywood’s skin care secret debuts in the Islands

Summer weather wreaks havoc on skin with its onetwo punch of burning and inducing perspiration and oil production, often leading to clogged pores, breakouts and dry skin.

The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Maui offers immediate Rx, having introduced Kate Somerville Skin Health Experts facial treatments and products to the island.

Key to the treatments is the Kate Somerville Signature Facial, built on the skin-wellness expert’s Skin Health Pyramid that defines the five elements for maintaining beautiful skin: protect, hydrate, feed, stimulate and detox.

Summer also calls for the DermalQuench Treatment, which combines hydration therapy, oxygen, vitamins and hyaluronic serum to reinvigorate complexions after a day spent in the ocean and under the sun, or before a special event. At the Kate Somerville Los Angeles clinic, celebs rely on the DermalQuench Treatment for red-carpet radiance. Somerville counts Jessica Alba, Paris Hilton, Sandra Oh and Debra Messing among her clients.

To keep up the glow at home, start a daily regimen with Kate Somerville’s ultra-light sunscreen ($35) to guard against premature aging caused by sun exposure. And don’t forget your daily vitamins, using Somerville’s Total Vitamin Antioxidant Complex ($65) to nurture your complexion.
