While a visit to the spa may seem like a luxury expense for some, it's important to go all out and treat yourself to a pampering indulgence every once in a while. You only live once, and besides, if you choose a treatment that'll benefit your look over time, that makes it worthwhile, right? Here, four we think you'll love.
Alpha-Hydroxy Acid Peel: Since the years unfortunately show up on your face first, stop time in its tracks with a revitalizing glycolic peel. With minimal downtime, it helps dissolve dead, dull skin cells and diminish the appearance of wrinkles, age spots and blemishes, ultimately revealing a smooth, radiant, even-toned complexion.
Perfect for: Youth yearners.
Oxygen Facial: Obviously worn out? Thankfully, this particular treatment takes you from fatigued to fabulous in sixty minutes flat. A gentle stream of highly pressurized oxygen infuses a nutrient- and botanical-rich serum deep into the skin to strengthen collagen and plump fine lines while smoothing over a rough, uneven texture.
Perfect for: The terribly tired.
Mud Mask: While you might not enjoy sloshing around in mud as much as a pig, there are a bevy of beauty benefits associated with having a mud mask painted all over your body—especially if you’re acne-prone (and don’t mind getting a little dirty). Often formulated with mineral-rich sludge extracted from the purportedly healing waters of the Dead Sea, a mud mask actually detoxifies and deep cleanses the skin, extracting excess sebum and grime trapped deep within your pores.
Perfect for: Oil overproducers.
Cosmetic Teeth Whitening: Everyone knows that a gorgeous grin is a girl’s best accessory, so if you want to flash a vibrantly white Hollywood-like smile, pass on the custom bleaching trays and whitening strips—especially when time is of the essence. Just one hour with an enamel expert (armed with whitening gel and an LED light) can deliver a beautifully blinding set of pearly whites.
Perfect for: Coffee connoisseurs.
