Spa Month has arrived! July 1st kicked off the two-month-long event where you can indulge in special treatments for as low as $99 at Miami’s leading spas. From facials, massages, aroma therapy and more you can have your get your beauty fix at just a fraction of the cost.
One of the specials you must try this summer is at the newest spa Blue Harmony located inside the Shelborne Hotel on South Beach. Just recently the historic hotel underwent a $150M face lift which included the addition of the spa, as well as a few more nick and tuck enhancements throughout the hotel.
The 2400 square-foot facility offers private treatment suites, a nail salon and an array of treatments such as specialty massages, facials, body treatments, sun repair, waxing, manicures and pedicures to make you feel right fresh as new. Blue Harmony is the perfect mid-day retreat for locals and visitors.
I caught up with the Spa Director, Roxanna Bayona, to get her recommendations on summer treatments.
What is the most popular service?
Our Grand Sea Salt Massage is our most popular service on the menu. This unique service employs warmed herbal compresses with a blend of lemongrass, eucalyptus and camphor to ease aches, pains, and soothe feelings of mental and physical stress while releasing the scents of each distinctive herb. Once your muscles have been warmed with the poultices, you will receive traditional massage bodywork using rocking, kneading and pumping techniques.
What service do you recommend for those trying to rejuvenate their skin?
Those looking to achieve that summer glow would benefit by treating their body to a mystifying bamboo scrub. This effective yet delicate scrub uses micro-particles from bamboo to massage and exfoliate your skin with essential oils to liven and stimulate your senses. Those looking to awaken their skin with a facial would benefit from our oxygen line by Natura Bisse. This facial aids in decongesting the skin from exposure to toxins and pollutants.
In Miami, our summers are extremely hot, which is bad on our skin, what do you recommend?
With the summer heat at hand it is always important to be preventative when it comes to sun exposure. Finding an SPF moisturizer that works well with your skin type is always the key. Here at Blue Harmony spa we know that sun care is important so we offer an array of services to aid in preventative and post sun treatments. We offer anything from a Vitamin C Facial that is rich in anti-oxidants and relieving sun-damaged skin to poolside cabana services that apply SPF products to your entire body while you enjoy the summer sun. Should you get too exposed we offer post sun relief to start the healing process of itchy sun damaged skin.
