Spa Week is coming! For some people, autumn means changing leaves, back to school clothes or footbal games. For me, fall means Spa Week is just around the corner. This year its October 12-18 and its a chance to get effective but usually pricey treatments at just $50.
All through the year I write about great skin care options, but sometimes I feel a bit guilty about the price of many of these treatments. But during Spa Week prices are slashed in the most popular spas across the country. For example, one of my top five beauty treatments is the Hydrafacial that is normally about $150. It is a combination of microdermabrasion, glycolic peel and oxygen infusion. It creates a yourthful, healthy glow that lasts for days. If you have a bigg event coming up, this should be your go-to facial. And during Spa Week its just $50.
Another fav is the glycolic peel. In New York City this too can be $100-$150. Not only does it take off the top layer of dead, dry skin cells, it stimulates the growth of healthy new cells. All this at just the cost of a department store moisturizer.
The beauty options are not limited to skin care. Some spas offer tooth whitening while others have a stress reducing list of different types of massage. Spa Week is also the time to try out new things that have been on my beauty wish list. This year I am getting lash extensions. Normally up to $200, I am getting the hour long treatment for just $50.
How to Participate in Spa Week
To find the participating spas in your area go to www.spaweek.com. SIgn up with your name and address and you will be able to locate the spas in your area. They will list their spa week menu and help you book an appointment. I suggest booking early since the number of slots are limited and beauty junkies like me have the dates of Spa Week in their calendars. When the online booking opens up they jump in to get their beauty fix.
One final thought. A portion of the proceeds from Spa Week are donated to Cancerand Careers.org. Spa Week not only makes you look good, it does good too.
