Welcome to the block, Angela Jia Kim, owner of Savor Beauty + Spa. Savor Beauty is a natural skincare brand that offers specialty facials, beauty and well-being recommendations, award-winning spa treatments and makeup services. The skincare products are made-on-premise in their Beauty Kitchen and are used in the spa treatments. Since their opening in 2012 in the West Village, Savor Spa has drawn quite the following for its eco-beauty skincare products that uses mostly organic, natural, and sustainable ingredients.
Savor Beauty’s natural skincare production and organic spa has now moved to Saugerties, NY. The fully-renovated 5,000-square-foot facility’s centerpiece is the “Beauty Kitchen” where Savor’s award-winning organic skincare products are made. There are three treatment rooms with a team of four estheticians and three massage therapists. Guests can see masques and essential oils being mixed before their treatments, and shoppers discover the latest beauty trends and a curated collection of eco-makeup in Savor Beauty’s retail boutique. The second-floor Savor Loft is used for private events, workshops and classes. Savor Beauty’s founder Angela Jia Kim says, “My husband and I started coming up here six years ago, and the moment I discovered Saugerties, I fell in love with this town. I loved spending the afternoon speaking with the shop owners about their creation process, and I felt right at home here. I feel fortunate that we found the ideal space where we will be making the skincare products that I originally created in my kitchen in Manhattan. It’s the perfect place for us to keep creating all-natural beauty formulations, train the highest level of expertise in our estheticians and massage therapists, and treat guests to an atmosphere of relaxation and rejuvenation.”
We asked Angela to share some natural tips to protecting your skin from the sun. Read the following to keep your skin radiant and clear during these hot summer months.
“Wear paraben-free, eco-friendly and natural sunscreen. Ask any dermatologist for their best anti-aging treatment and you’ll get the same answer again and again. It’s wearing sunscreen on your face, every single day, without exception. A skin cooling and moisturizing sunscreen, COOLA Suncare SPF 30, body and face care relies on organic beeswax for an environmentally friendly answer to sweat- and water-resistance. Available at Savor Beauty; $36
Walk on the shaded part of the street. My Korean mom always taught me to run away from the sun. Korean beauty standards include pearly white skin, which inspired the Truffle Face Cream (high in vitamin B, which restores the skin’s luminosity) because dark skin once meant that you were a peasant, out in the field and working all day under the sun. Light skinned people were the nobility – they could afford to stay at home and out of the sun. This age-old belief has lent itself well into modern society with practical Korean beauty ritual advice: wear hats, cross over to walk in the shaded street, and avoid the sun at all cost.
Cool off with a Beautyfood Smoothie. If your skin needs care after a day out in the sun, foods like papaya helps repair skin from the inside out." Angela
