Favin’s Five Favorite Health and Beauty Deals in Atlanta
Atlanta is famous for its peaches and humidity. Beat the heat with a frizz-fighting keratin treatment at Spencer Malay Hair Salon, or escape it altogether with a day of massages and facials at The Spa at Lanier.
Exfoliation is key for soft skin, but did you know that it’s also the secret to a longer-lasting tan? The staff at Spa Sydell scrub your body with sea salt to get rid of dry skin, then spray on the airbrush tanning solution by hand to ensure it looks even and natural.
Allure magazine called Spencer Malay’s hairstyling advice “perfect,” so you know you’re in good hands at his salon. He and his staff use the GKhair Keratin Taming System, which rejuvenates damaged hair and smooths away frizz for up to five months. It will also cut your blow-dry time in half, so you have time for more important things like naps.
This home-whitening kit comes packed with everything you need for 8–10 DIY whitening sessions. That includes hydrogen-peroxide gel, an LED light that you shine in your mouth to activate the gel, and a shade guide so you know you haven’t gone overboard into glow-in-the-dark territory.
The team here pampers visitors with luxurious facials and massages, and the earth-toned decor gives the spa a relaxing, outdoorsy vibe. The best part of the whole experience, though, might be knowing that the proceeds of your treatment go to cancer research and other charitable causes—you’ll leave feeling good inside and out!
Speaking of feeling warm inside, that’s literally what will happen when you’re wrapped up in a Formostar body wrap. The infrared heat from these wraps penetrates your skin and targets fat cells, supposedly breaking them down so that your system can flush them out more easily.
Beauty blogger working at Groupon. For me, both beauty and fashion need to be accessible and not intimidating. I love a great deal and a good DIY beauty treatment. I pride myself on trying new trends, being open minded and getting a great treatment without breaking the bank. In the name of beauty I will try anything once.
