A Great Reason To Be Naughty — Seriously

2
The ol' lump-of-coal-in-your-stocking threat may not have been funny when you were a kid, but we've got reason to believe that being naughty really can be nice. The Spa at Four Seasons Chicago just launched a super-cool new Japanese charcoal massage that promises to purify that holiday partying bod of yours from the inside out.
In an effort to make up for all those glasses of bubbly, you'll be given a detoxifying white charcoal bevvie — we promise, it tastes like anything but. Next, a back exfoliation utilizing a concoction of white charcoal, sea salt, and rice bran oil — see ya later dull winter skin! On to the really amazing part: a full-body detox massage using both acupressure and deep-tissue modalities. We're falling asleep just thinking about the blissful experience. And because a $250 massage may not always be in the cards, the results-driven line of Sort of Coal prods used in the treatment are available for your home regimen — not that it will be half as enjoyable.
