House of Preservation Launches Its First Cleanser
For close to a decade, anti-aging skincare gurus Brittany Ricketts and Rylie Bland have waxed poetic about the power of oil cleansing. The House of Preservation founders fell in love with double-cleansing while enrolled in cosmetology and esthiology school and launching the blog that first gained them notoriety.
Four years ago, the influencers leveraged their internet fame to open their House of Preservation med spa, offering services like laser, microneedling, filler, Korean peels, dermaplaning, and more. Late last month, the duo launched their very first facial product: Step One, an oil cleanser. Applied to a dry face, the product promises to “melt away makeup and impurities in seconds.” The $68 cleanser, which includes ingredients like grapefruit peel oil and rosemary leaf oil, is available online and at the med spa’s Dallas and Austin locations.

Start Your Weekend with a Massage at Joanna Czech
Celebrity aesthetician Joanna Czech has spent decades building a career dedicated to your face. Her skincare-forward brand features a luxe product line, which’ll cost you one month’s rent, and two flagship studios in New York and her home base of Dallas. There, Czech’s jet-setting clientele can book treatments like the Cryo drainage facial, Upper Body LED, and a Kobido massage, which is known as a “natural Japanese face-lift.” But while beauty and skincare is the core of Czech’s brand, she’s getting into the comfort game, too. On Fridays and Saturdays at the Dallas studio, guests can now book a 60-minute full body massage, a Swedish-style massage with deep tissue stimulation and trigger point therapy, for $250.

Get the Diamond Treatment at the Ritz-Carlton
Last year, the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas unveiled its, well, ritzy remodeled 12,000-square-foot spa. Inspired by the Dallas Arboretum, the soft and floral remodel will transport you out of the city, spa director Scott Studstill told D Magazine at the time. Now, the spa is hopping on the lymphatic massage trend once again with its new Diamond Botanical Ritual treatment. The 80-minute service includes dry brushing to stimulate the lymphatic system and a blend of Dead Sea salt crystals, grapeseed, and ground rice. There’s also a full-body massage with a “hydrating veil.” The whole thing costs $350, but the spa’s offering the service for 15 percent off throughout August.
