the hungarian touch

An industry colleague tipped me off to who is probably one of, if not the most thorough and educated estheticians in New York City, Ildi Pekar, founder and owner of Ildi Pekar Skincare. In the heart of Manhattan, Ildi’s little spa is an oasis above it all and is stocked with some of the most advanced, clean and organic European skincare available today.

I spent a morning with lldi, having booked her signature Refine Body Treatment, which was just right to fight the post-holiday stress. I spent some time learning more about her and her salon, as well as her pending skincare line due out in 2012.

Ildi is super sweet and brings a level of service, education and expertise to her clients built from her early days in the industry as the lead esthetician at Gellért Spa, which is housed inside Hungary’s famed four-star Hotel Gellért in Budapest, and also from working with celebrities and the likes of Miss Europe. Through her travels and deaing with models, celebs and those looking for total discretion, Ildi opened her first New York salon just three years ago and still books weeks in advance.

Ildi’s little haven is also the only place in New York City where the Beau Bronz method and products are available. Direct from the UK, Beau Bronz is an odorless, clean, healthy, natural and certified organic skin bronzing and tanning method…the only solution Ildi believes in when it comes to skin color enhancing!
