Ready, Set, Summer! After a quick visit to the best Chicago spa
Summer doesn’t officially start until June 21, but we all know that the long Memorial Day Weekend officially marks the unofficial start of summer. The days are getting longer, backyard barbecues are being rolled out and kids are counting down the last days of the school year.
If you haven’t already done so, you can pack the bulky sweaters and coats away now. It’s time to pull out the shorts, strappy sandals, sundresses and swimsuits.
There might be just one little problem, right? The first time you pull on a pair of shorts, slip into a sunny little dress or strap on a pair of those sandals, you might be reminded of just how long the winter was here in Chicago. If that doesn’t do it, the first time you put on your swimsuit probably will. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bikini or one of the cute new one-piece suits, you’re bound to realize that there are a few things you should probably do to prepare for your favorite summer looks.
The simple fact is that summer means we’ll all be showing more skin – whether you want to spend the long Memorial Day Weekend in a T-shirt and shorts or a strapless dress. Here at Spa Space, the best day spa in Chicago, we understand.
If you want to put your best foot forward for summer, a visit to Chicago’s Spa Space is definitely in order. Any one of the delicious options on our pedicure menu will help undo the damage a winter in boots may have caused. Here are just a few of the most popular 50-minute pedicures at our spa in Chicago’s West Loop:
- Space Signature Peppermint Pedicure
Get ready for 50 minutes of bliss that starts with a softening foot soak, followed by a minty-sugar foot scrub to remove dead skin. After that, we’ll hydrate your feet with an invigorating foot cream.
- Sports Pedicure
This is a good choice if you’ve been extra hard on your feet over the winter, even if you’re not an athlete! It includes a softening foot soak, heavy-duty citrus scrub and clay mask for hydration and renewal.
- Vanilla-Almond Pedicure – super-hydrating!
If the winter months have left your poor feet feeling dry, rough and itchy skin, this super hydrating pedicure is for you. It draws on the naturally rich qualities of honey, almond and vanilla to delight your senses while exfoliating and softening your feet and it includes a fabulously hydrating foot mask.
And, of course, all of our pedicures include choice of polish or buff. And, if you’d like to raise a toast to summer, feel free to bring a bottle of wine! We just happen to have glassware on hand. (We weren’t named the best day spa in Chicago for nothing, you know!)
If you’re hoping to stretch out in the sun over the holiday weekend, you’ll be happy to know that we also offer a complete menu of waxing services – and we never double dip a stick! (As we were just saying, you don’t get to be the best spa in Chicago without making that extra effort.)
To get a jump start on your healthy summer glow, you may also want to schedule an appointment for one of the amazing body treatments offered at our day spa in Chicago’s bustling downtown district. One of the top choices among our Chicago spa’s discerning clientele is:
- Green Tea & Ginger Detoxifying Seaweed Body Wrap
Did you know that seaweed can stimulate a sluggish metabolism while detoxifying and reducing the appearance of cellulite? Aren’t you glad we did?! (Yeah, this is exactly the kind of thing that helps propel you to the pinnacle of the best spas in Chicago.) The treatment starts with a full-body scrub so your skin will be ready to drink in all the rich nutrients. Then the seaweed is applied and the body is wrapped so you get the ultimate benefits from the detox process. The final step involves our “moisture surge” lotion. If you opt for the 60-minute treatment, you will have it applied. If you go for 90-minute version of this treatment, it will be massaged into your skin for 30 memorable minutes.
