La Petite Rose's 15-Step Facial Rescues Parched Summer Skin

With jet-setting season underway, you're likely to catch some sunshine this summer. While those rays add an envious glow, they also severely dry out your skin. In addition to using a broad-spectrum, high SPF sunscreen everyday, specialists also recommend treating your skin with the occasional summer facial. One of our current faves is The Plant of the Sea Facial at La Petite Rose.

We're loving this 80-minute wonder that calms, soothes, cools, hydrates, and leaves you feeling magically pampered. It's well worth the trek to the spa's Outer Richmond location.

Aziza chef Mourad Lahlou vs. Paula Wolfert

What do Aziza chef-owner Mourad Lahlou and Sonoma-based Moroccan food expert Paula Wolfert have in common? Not much, as it turns out. I just spent the weekend at the annual CIA Worlds of Flavor conference, where old guard and new guard rubbed shoulders, swapped recipes and took in demos on everything from Syrian pastry making to live fire grilling. It’s one of the more well-organized and inspirational food conferences out there; you should consider putting it on your calendar for next year, when the theme will be street food of the world.
