The latest and greatest in spa treatments isn’t that fancy new caviar facial you just booked over at the Four Seasons Hotel, it’s that boozy crushed cabernet scrub your girlfriend indulged in at The Plaza. No, seriously: we’re not kidding. Turns out alcohol actually can do the body some good…just probably not in terms of the way you (or Birdman, Lil Wayne, and Drake for that matter) are used to delighting in it. A 24-hour champagne diet? Shocking — not so great for you.
So put down the bottle and try something revitalizing for a change this weekend. Exfoliate, hydrate, and rejuvenate your skin, and perhaps instead of drinking a mojito, wrap yourself in one.
Here’s our list of the top 5 spa treatments to get you buzzed this weekend:
1. CRUSHED CABERNET SCRUB
Counter the effects of wine night and detoxify and rejuvenate your skin with a luxurious treatment that will leave you feeling radiant from the inside out. Utilizing grapeseed, honey, brown sugar and 6 draining and cellulite-fighting organic essential oils, the Crushed Cabernet Scrub is the ideal spa treatment for a gal who loves booze but is completely over the drunk diet.
Try it at: Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa at The Plaza Hotel in NYC, $145.00 for a 35-minute treatment
2. CHAMPAGNE FACIAL
Pop the bubbly ladies, it’s time to celebrate your skin with some champagne to the face. Yep, you heard us right, champagne to the face! Otherwise know as a champagne facial, this lavish anti-aging treatment combines all of the exfoliating, hydrating, and anti-oxidant properties of champagne oil and grapes to keep your skin looking and feeling like a million bucks.
Try it at: Faina European Day Spa in NYC, $120.00 for a 75-minute treatment; Uva Spa & Wine Boutique in Chicago, $75.00 for a 60-minute treatment; Luxury on Lovers in Dallas, $158.00 for a 50-minute treatment
3. CHARDONNAY MASSAGE
Some people like to enjoy a glass of chardonnay to relax and unwind after a long week at work. Others, well, they prefer to get massaged in it. Treat yourself to the ultimate bliss and help ward off those telltale signs of aging with a signature chardonnay massage. Aimed at increasing circulation and reducing tension, after this soothing rub down you may never look at a bottle of Kendall Jackson the same again.
Try it at: The Biltmore Hotel Spa in Miami, $140.00 for a 50-minute massage and $180.00 for a 70-minute massage; Wine Country Spa in Napa Valley, $115.00 for a 60-minute massage and $165.00 for a 90-minute massage
4. LEMON DROP PEDICURE
Okay, so maybe your feet aren’t exactly getting soaked in a martini here, but hey, a free one does come with the treatment! Show your toes some love this summer with a Lemon Drop Pedi, featuring an exfoliating scrub along with a hydrating lemon moisturizing cream. What’s even better? You can sip your martini while someone else does all the leg work.
Try it at: Four Seasons Hotel Spa in Chicago, $95.00 for pedicure, Lemon Drop Martini, complimentary pair of Havaianas and a special gift from Bloomingdales (available until September 5)
5. MOJITO BODY WRAP
Pay tribute to your favorite minty cocktail and cocoon yourself in a firming, hydrating, and anti-aging body wrap rich in white clay and Vitamin C. The perfect blend of sugar, mint, and lime, the Mojito Body Wrap will have your senses intoxicated and body tight in little to no time at all.
