Trade your snow day for a spa day
By Aimee Heckel
With this kind of weather, we’re going to need to rewrite some classic songs. Few states actually experienced a “white Christmas” this year, but it’s beginning to feel a lot like “white Valentine’s Day.”
February is gearing up to be chilly, snowy and bleak.
If this weather derails your plans or regular work day, take your snow day off to treat yourself to a spa day. Whether it’s a weekend excursion or a staycation in your home town, a hotel with a spa is a great way to plan some entertainment, but without the exertion.
Every month, we talk to Ava Roxanne Stritt, the Spa Travel Gal, to get her favorite spa travel deals. For February, she’s dreaming of a snowy spa day, too. Here are Stritt’s top picks for your late winter spa vacation for February.
1. If you want to get away:
The Festival Magnifico at the Spa at JW Marriott Cusco, Peru.
This treatment is inspired by the Incas new year’s festival, says Stritt. Enjoy a diamond scrub, a gold wrap, facial and exfoliation, 50-minute massage and wraps up with a mani-pedi.
2. Want a mixture of hot and cold?
This one is Stritt’s all-time favorite. A circuit of hot and cold water treatments aim to refresh, rejuvenate, stimulate circulation and cleanse. Tip: Try the Raindance Rainmaker shower, where jets of water and air will massage your skin.

If you want a major (and crazy) splurge:
Get a Vampire Facial, one of the most expensive spa treatments in the world. This treatment gained national attention when Kim Kardashian got one — at the price tag of about 1,000 Pounds. What makes it vampire-y? Practitioners draw out your blood, spin it in a centrifuge and then smear it on your face and inject it under your skin. The claims: This will stimulate collagen and repair skin damage.
