Real talk: You may not realize it yet, but you need a little pampering right now. Take a month of freezing, windy weather, add a jam-packed work and social schedule, and cap it off with a daylight-savings switch that has majorly derailed your sleep cycle — yikes. Luckily, we've got an easy fix for your seasonal slump: a handpicked list of the best spa treatments available at the DMV's most relaxing venues. Don't you feel better already?
Anti-Aging Active Peel Facial
After an aesthetician examines your skin and uses steam to open your pores, you'll get a deep brush cleanse, which preps the skin for an enzyme peel loaded with alpha hydroxy acids. A facial massage and a smoothing mask round out the 80-minute procedure, which leaves skin plumped and luminous.
$225-$250. Available at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, 1330 Maryland Avenue SW; 202-787-6100.
Elemis Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow
Part of the Bliss Spa offerings at the W Hotel, this energizing, one-hour body treatment starts with a light body brushing. Then, a spa staffer drizzles your bod with warm Japanese camellia oil, and buffs your skin from head to toe with Elemis' lime and ginger salt scrub. It might just be the perfect way to banish winter flakes forever.
$130. Available at Bliss Spa, 515 15th Street NW; 202-661-2400.
