When I was younger, I constantly pestered my grandmother to make lemonade with me. When she wasn’t looking, I would put an extra cup—yes, a whole cup—of sugar in the mix, making it almost unbearably sweet for everyone but me. Now, I know better (most of the time), but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying lemonade. Because of this, I was thrilled to find out that August 20th (my half-birthday, as it happens!) is National Lemonade Day. See below how spas are incorporating my favorite summer drink into refreshing summer treatments.
The Lemonade Pedicure (starting at $60, 55 minutes) at The Grand Salons (multiple locations, OH) invites guests to enjoy a glass of lemonade while a lemon sugar buff scrub exfoliates their skin. A lemon tonic masque is sued to soften the skin and brighten the nails, and the treatment ends with a lemon tonic lotion.
At Grand Spa (Los Angeles), the Scrub & Cool Mint Lemonade Massage ($130, 120 minutes) includes a body scrub followed by a cool mint lemonade salt scrub. Essential oils and a facial massage are included, followed by a vitamin C serum mask and hair treatment to finish.
The Spa at the Hotel Bothwell (Sedalia, MO) lets younger clients get in on the fun as well. Their Fancy Fingers Manicure ($20, 20 minutes) comes with a glass of lemonade, as do their Mom & Me Manis & Pedis ($80, 45 minutes).
