While we all love summer, sometimes the endless days of trudging through the city and sweating it out in the subway can leave us begging for a cool escape. A weekend away might be calling your name, but then, of course, there’s the traffic and rush which can make a relaxing few days out of town seem more like a bother than a blessing. So in the spirit of relaxation, we decided to create the perfect staycation to help our fellow Brooklynites escape the heat and enjoy a little “me time” without all the travel worries. Here are our favorite summer spa treatments to help you unwind and look like you’ve just come back from an exotic holiday.
Summer heat and humidity coupled with icy office air conditioning can be brutal on the skin. If you’re feeling hot and bothered, a Cucumber Cooling Calming Facial might be just what you need to bring back your natural moisture levels and give that face a megawatt glow. Once all the dead cells are removed, a series of cooling masks are applied to protect the skin from dangerous free radicals and replenish the water that the face needs to look and feel healthy. This treatment is especially effective for all of you sun worshippers who simply can’t get enough of those drying, damaging rays. Don’t say that we didn’t warn you!
Speaking of dryness, if your skin is feeling tight and flaky from head to toe, a Body Polish will most certainly put you back on course. This treatment begins on a warm massage table where an aromatherapy scrub of your choice is applied. For summertime, we recommend peppermint which cools the skin and smells absolutely divine. The scrub goes to work removing toxins and dead cells while encouraging circulation and filling the body with a blast of energy! Once the scrub is rinsed away, it’s time to indulge in a truly cooling massage using aromatic oils to hydrate the skin and relax tense muscles.
If you’re really looking for a mind and body bliss experience, look no further than the Peppermint Sedona Mud Wrap. Our most popular summer treatment uses a rich composition of minerals to soothe dry, flaky skin while also reducing the appearance of cellulite. You’ll be wrapped up tight in a cooling cocoon of active mud which detoxifies the body and amps up the skin’s moisture level, revealing a gorgeous head to toe glow and skin that’s velvety soft to the touch. Heaven!
Of course, no visit to the spa is complete without spending an hour or two luxuriating in the Wet Lounge. While a sauna or steam room session might not seem cooling, you’ll change your mind after a dip in our 52 degrees Arctic Plunge Pool. It’s amazing for rejuvenation and helps to increase the efficiency of the body’s organs, giving you a huge boost of energy to carry you through the day. Need we say more?
