Springtime in D.C. means flip-flops, sundresses and cherry blossoms. While work may not allow for you to soak up all the relaxing rays that come with springtime, some spas close to work may be just the fix you need to relax.
The Mint Spa
Cherry blossoms are a staple of D.C. springtime, so why not add them to your spring routine as well? Cherry blossom facials offered at the spa are 75 minutes of pure D.C. The city may leave you stressed out, but relax and take in what D.C.’s nature has to offer, right down to your pores.
This self-proclaimed rejuvenating facial includes it all: cleansing, exfoliation, hydration, facial massages, a massage and of course the main course, a cherry mask aimed to soothe and firm your skin.
And since nothing says spring like fresh fruit, after a long day at work stop by for a just-long-enough facial including the likes of lemons, limes, organs and grapefruits. The spring citrus facial will leave you relaxed and ready to take on the stresses of springtime. Visit www.mintconditionyourself.com to learn all about their classes and spa offerings.
