LET'S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS 50 @dayspamagazine • March 2019 TOP LEFT: COURTESY FACE TO FACE NYC; BOTTOM LEFT: COURTESY WHITE ORCHID SPA; © GETTY IMAGES Heel-ing Arnica Pedicure (65 min./$68) White Orchid Spa Vero Beach, Florida An ancient medicinal herb used for its anti- infl ammatory benefi ts, arnica serves as the cornerstone of this indulgent foot treatment. It begins with a warm arnica soak, followed by a custom- blended arnica foot scrub. Next, warm Kneipp Arnica Massage Oil is drizzled over the legs and feet, which are massaged for fi ve minutes using a combination of deep tissue work and hot stones. The toenails are then trimmed and callouses fi led, and the feet are placed in warm Sonoma Lavender Spa Booties for three to fi ve minutes, followed by a fi nal massage using New Directions Aromatics Warm Arnica Butter. Manly Must-Haves: "Arnica, along with the combination of hot stones and deep tissue massage, quickly reduces age-related pain and infl ammation," notes spa director Brittany Nuzzi. Why Guys Love It: "Our clients enjoy the warm soak, full-body massage chairs and the spa's direct ocean view," reports Nuzzi. "They leave with an improved range of motion, groomed feet and a relaxed mind." "GUESTS LEAVE WITH AN IMPROVED RANGE OF MOTION, GROOMED FEET AND A RELAXED MIND." Y Chromosome Facial (75 min./$180) Face to Face NYC New York City This tough-as-nails facial enlists the power of microdermabrasion to leave the client's skin feeling clean, hydrated and smooth. "The aggressive dry exfoliation removes any debris while minimizing ingrown hairs and razor burn," explains owner Enrique Ramirez. After the microdermabrasion, the guest receives a gentle steam using hot towels. Next, extractions are performed, followed by a facial massage using Astara Aroma Nutrient Face and Body Oil, and fi nally, Yon-Ka Paris Hydrating Masque Modelant is applied to lock in hydration. Manly Must-Haves: Microdermabrasion is the ideal tool for targeting male skin concerns. "It treats shaving irritation and softens texture, fi ne lines and wrinkles," says Ramirez. Why Guys Love It: "Men appreciate the 'toughness' of this treatment," enthuses Ramirez. "This facial allows them to feel pampered without compromising their masculinity."
