City Pulse

By Marni James

If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering where the summer went. Since I refuse to believe that it’s almost over, I’ve continued to cram as many summer activities into my days as possible. The one obstacle throughout August, has been the constant heat and humidity. I have, however, found the perfect escape for when I can no longer take the sweltering heat. In the heart of SoHo sits a true paradise, Haven Spa, where you can get the most delicious, island inspired, yet wallet-friendly treatments that will make you forget summer is even coming to an end.

The three new treatments are the Tropical Coconut Manicure, Tropical Coconut Pedicure and Tropical Coconut Escape Body Exfoliation, all which are infused with pure coconut oil, a natural moisturizer that smells like the epitome of summer. I recently experienced the Tropical Coconut Manicure and Pedicure, where I truly got pampered from hand to toe while relaxing with luscious scents inspired by exotic destinations. The manicure and pedicure begin with a soothing coconut milk soak that revives dry hands and feet; dry legs and hands are both gently exfoliated with a coconut scrub and then hydrated with creamy coconut-infused body butter. The Tropical Coconut Escape Body Exfoliation will rid you of flaky skin and make you a complete glowing goddess in just 25 minutes. Next time you find yourself in a late-summer slump, I suggest trying out these treatments for an island escape right in NYC.
