Think youd have to pay someone lots of money just to touch your ugly ass? Now, thanks to the efforts of some sharp folks behind Spa Week, you can get various professionals to do it for only $50. And theyll squeeze your nose zits and remove your toe cheese, too, if you throw a few more Ulysses S. Grants their way. Nearly 20 spas in Palm Beach, Broward and Dade counties are participating, each offering reduced-rate services ranging from simple to sublime.
Want to go green? Get a Loofah Salt Glow and Seaweed Body Masque at The Contour Day Spas (455 SW 78th Ave., Plantation, and 1 Seminole Way, Hollywood). Go for the Eminence Organic Antioxidant Facial at Eden Day Spa (213 E. Palmetto Park Rd., Boca Raton). Or you can always just book a Swedish massage. Those who like it rough may want to go for microdermabrasion at Laser Cosmetica (2421 NE 65th St., Suite 105, Fort Lauderdale).
Visit spaweek.org/spas/florida to see the full list of participating spas and the treatments being offered. (Also be sure to investigate how you can win a $100 or $1,000 gift card, a wellness vacation at the luxe Canyon Ranch resort, or a 2.5-karat diamond ring).
