Here at ShopTalk, we talk a lot about how to beat the summer heat. Well, I spent my lunch hour today at the Spa at the Crescent, where I experienced the seasonal Cucumber Mint Body Energizer. After a vigorous cucumber and mint sugar scrub, which left my skin oh-so-soft and smooth, I snuggled up under a fat duvet–no itty bitty sheet here–for a hydrating massage with a luxurious cucumber-and-mint body mousse. The cucumber and mint combine for a soothing, cooling effect that’ll make you forget–if only for 90 minutes–about the oppressive temperatures outside. Another summer treat: gift card holders can get a complimentary single upgrade on their spa service until August 31. So up the ante from that signature massage and get an aromatherapy, hot rock, or ayurvedic massage treatment instead.
