Treat yourself on International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This day dedicated to honoring women has been observed since 1908, and it is a day for unity, celebration and action. Here in the Corridor, we love celebrating women leaders, women-owned companies and women doing wonderful things in the community. This year, take off work and pamper yourself instead on International Women’s Day on March 8. Give yourself a much-deserved break, so you can come back to the office Thursday with a refreshed mind and spirit, ready to conquer the rest of the year. Here are a few tips to get you started.

Relax with a Massage at Massage Envy 

Start your day of pampering off right with a luxurious massage at Massage Envy. The massages here go beyond the typical massage to ease stress and relax sore muscles. At Massage Envy, you can order many different add-on packages that serve a variety of needs. For example, add aromatherapy to your massage to detox your system with lemon, grapefruit and juniper; invigorate the body and increase circulation with rosemary, mint and patchouli; recharge with a citrus blend; relax with a lavender blend; soothe muscles with rosemary, clove and sweet birch; and release stress with orange, bergamot, sage and lemon. After a massage here, you will be more relaxed than you have been in years!

Cleanse Your Face with a Facial at Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa 

Getting a facial is a reward because it feels so good, and because it helps improve your complexion and treat skin problems at the same time! At Hand & Stone, there are many facial options to choose from, all depending on your individual needs. The Classic Facial is designed to treat skin congestion, lack of radiance, skin sensitivity, fine lines and loss of firmness. You will receive a deep pore cleansing, exfoliation and extractions. For more specific facials, a few options include a Rejuvenating Facial, which restores fatigued, sun damaged or mature skin; a Anti-Aging Collagen Facial, which tightens, tones and treats skin with collagen, cellular complexes, amino acids, vitamins and natural oils to increase moisture and decrease wrinkles; or a Microdermabrasion, which is a non-invasive procedure that removes dull cells on the surface to reveal more radiant skin underneath. No matter what you choose, you will start to look and feel better after just one treatment.

Treat Your Nails with a Mani/Pedi at Grand Spa 

Nothing makes me feel more relaxed and beautiful than having my nails done. At Grand Spa, you will be treated like royalty while getting the prettiest nails of your life. Go for the Ultimate Spa Manicure, a 60-minute service that includes exfoliation, a refreshing mask, extended hand and arm massage to relieve stress, a mask to leave hands hydrated, and a beautiful polish finish in the color of your choice. Next, get the Ultimate Spa Pedicure, a 70-minute service that includes a gyrating pedicure with exfoliation, heat therapy treatment, a refreshing mask, an extended feet and lower legs massage and a polish finish with your favorite color. Leave feeling beautiful, glamorous and absolutely refreshed.

Change Your Hair at Beauty Brands 

Spring is almost here, so as part of your day of pampering, get a new hairdo at Beauty Brands. Start with a haircut to trim split ends or create a whole new look, then add a little color or highlights for a new glow. Finish your gorgeous new look with a blowout, including the Classic, which is smooth, bouncy and sophisticated with lots of volume; the Super Sleek, which is a sleek, smooth style that is impossible to achieve on your own; or the Breeze, which is a sexy, soft wave look that will make people think you just left the beach. Any style you go with, you will fill sexy and confident with your new flawless hair.

Buy Makeup at Mary Kay 

Finally, nothing ends a pampered day better than new makeup, so you can continue to look your best even when you have to go back to work. Right now, we love Addison-based Mary Kay’s new spring/summer 2017 collection. It features a limited-edition eye color palette that comes in Sunlight (light pink, dark pink, lavender and tan) and Glistening Horizon (cream, purple, aqua and dark blue). Or go for the limited-edition glossy lip oil, which is infused with grape seed, avocado and jojoba oils that moisturize your lips and add a hint of magenta, violet or pink tint. The last part of this collection is the limited-edition nail lacquer, a scratch-resistant polish in mauve, red/orange and violet. These cosmetics won’t last longs reward yourself for being a woman by getting them soon!
