GET A DEEP BODY SCRUB
If you haven’t been to SoJo Spa Club in Edgewater, winter is the perfect time to relax in its heated outdoor pools and therapeutic baths, sauna rooms and an infinity pool with panoramic views of New York City. While spending the day at the spa, schedule a Korean Body Scrub for an intense exfoliation that stimulates circulation. The treatment will scrub your body from head to toe and leave skin silky and smooth. Designed to shed away unwanted dry skin that winter air inevitably leaves you with, a Korean Body Scrub is one of SoJo’s most sought-after experiences.

DESTRESS WITH A FACIAL + ACUPUNCTURE
Don’t let the needles used during acupuncture scare you. Facial acupuncture is a painless way to help clear your complexion, fight signs of aging and relax. By increasing circulation while balancing qi (the body’s vital energy), tiny needles can also increase and boost collagen production. When combined with body points, acupuncture can elicit an anti-stress and anti-inflammatory response by releasing feel-good endorphins and lowering your body’s cortisol levels. Follow this with a HydraFacial treatment, which takes 30 minutes from beginning to end. Your skin will be gently exfoliated and thoroughly cleansed as debris is suctioned away, which feels like a pain-free vacuum for your face.

SCHEDULE A SKIN PICK ME UP
Laser technology is one of the easiest ways to give your skin a brighter, younger glow without taking on an invasive procedure. Clear + Brilliant is a laser treatment designed to improve the look of fine lines, skin tone and texture. A facial treatment takes about 30 minutes with no downtime. The goal is to see a noticeably youthful glow after treatment. With consistent treatments it may even make skin look airbrushed. The process is gentle and requires patients to avoid sun for a few days post-treatment since skin will be sensitive. Results can last for months and work in tandem with most other cosmetic procedures.
