Kate Moss’s Facialist Debuts
A New Cryotherapy Tool —
When Kate Moss arrived to the Met Gala earlier this month after a nearly decadelong hiatus from the event’s red carpet, the Saint Laurent–dressed model had one British accessory in tow: a lit-from-within glow, courtesy of London-based facialist Teresa Tarmey. Moss was the lucky recipient of Tarmey’s celebrity-favored Ice-Lift facial, which includes a brightening lactic acid treatment, skin-tightening radio frequency, sculpting cryotherapy, and facial massage.
But if a jam-packed summer schedule prevents you from taking a trip across the pond to experience the expert’s flagship Kensington clinic, fret not: An at-home version of her signature service launched at Harvey Nichols today and, luckily, ships overseas. Not to be missed among the kit’s powerful products (lactic acid toner, silicone masks, hyaluronic acid gel)? A stainless steel Cryo-Ball.
“I LOVE CRYOTHERAPY”
Says Tarmey, an early adopter of the targeted flash-freeze technique, which is said to help the condition of the skin, from tightening and de-puffing to aiding in cellular renewal. While other complexion tools—a jade roller, say, or even a cube of ice—begin to lose their cool as soon as they make contact with skin, the cutting-edge Cryo-Ball is filled with a freeze-retaining saline solution so as to keep its chill long after it’s out of the freezer. “I first intended for it to be used before big events or to save problematic skin, but it’s so effective, I actually use it every morning to de-puff and de-stress,” says Tarmey, who recommends rolling the ball in circular movements on each side of the face for three to five minutes daily. “I even have a freezer in my bedroom so that I don’t have to go very far!” she adds with a laugh. Here’s to staying cool, calm, and collected all summer long.
