When Calgon Won’t Cut It

Life is exhausting, especially facing the daily car-mageddon inappropriately known as rush hour. It’s enough to make a sane soul snap. Thankfully, Monday kicks off the greatest week of the year: Spa Week. During the next seven ahh-inspiring days, some of the greatest spas in the country are cutting prices, giving you (the much need commuter) a chance to let those stresses sublimate away at affordable prices.

In Broward, locals can book a session at spa Mecca the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa (in both Weston and Fort Lauderdale). Fifty bucks gets you a pedicure, a facial, or an exfoliating Shea butter body melt wrap with mini-massage – each of those lasts for 50 glorious, worry-free minutes.

If you’ve ever caused your mother stress, now would be a good time to say you’re sorry with a gift certificate (she’ll feel even better knowing that you got it for a bargain). Or just treat yourself to a day of R&R – after all, traffic is more bearable when you have beautiful toes, subtle skin, and radiant, tiny pores. Call 954-564-5787 for the Red Door Spa of Fort Lauderdale (Galleria Mall, 2598A E. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale), or 954-349-5500 for the Red Door Lifestyle Spa in Weston (Hyatt Regency Bonaventure Conference Center and Spa, 250 Racquet Club Rd., Weston).
