Go for an ear candling appointment and stay for an osmosis organic medi-facial—an 80-minute treatment that helps with acne, rosacea and hyperpigmented skin. If you’re feeling extra decadent, try the anti-aging diamond or 24k gold masks ($50 each). You’ll come out with lustrous, glowing skin and wax-free ear canals. Really, what could be better than that?
Essentially a simple process, ear-candling is both a way to relax and beautify. It involves placing a cone-shaped device in the ear canal and lighting the opposite end, which supposedly creates a low-level vacuum that draws earwax and other impurities into the hollow candle (it’s not as terrifying as it sounds, we promise). It’s one of the best affordable spa treatments and clients claim to feel better and hear better afterward, and it’s possible to do it yourself at home, too. But if you’re nervous about potentially coating your bathroom in melted wax, just head to the best day spas for ear candling by a pro.
