The pumpkin-spice craze is in full swing, but the treats don't need to stop with food—three spas are offering fall-inspired services that satisfy autumn's biggest fans.
If you're not up for trying gross pumpkin-spice-flavored foods, go for a full body treatment. Pumpkin is rich in enzymes, beta-carotene and antioxidants, which is good news for anyone with dehydrated or dull skin. Stop by Oasis Day Spa (1 Park Ave at 33rd St, 212-254-7722) for a brightening Eminence Organics Pumpkin Spice Latte facial and peel ($145, 60mins), which promotes collagen production and encourages maximum nourishment to the skin.
Visit the Beauty Loft at Soho Sanctuary (119 Mercer St between Prince and Spring Sts, 212-334-5550, for a seasonal pumpkin-spice manicure ($45, 45mins) or pedicure ($75, 60mins). The decadent experience isn't your typical mani-pedi, so plan to spend some time being pampered with pumpkin, cinnamon and ginger products.
Brooklyn residents can head to Hibiscus Day Spa (556 Halsey St at Stuyvesant Ave, Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, 718-573-0831) for a variety of seasonally appropriate treatments, all offered at $50 each. Our top pick is the Pumpkin-Spice Hydration Massage (50mins), which incorporates the soothing aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg during a traditional full-body Swedish massage.
Go get spiced! You'll be the envy of every basic girl in the city.
