2012 New York Health and Wellness Guide

Get Hot While It's Cold

health and wellness!

After toasting to your health for the better part of the last two months, it’s time to take all the well-wishing to heart. Here’s how our 2012 is shaping up.

About Face
Hit the skin gym. Exhale’s new facial boot camp program targets dry, oily, and acne-prone faces and kicks your dermis into fighting shape. The same aesthetician tackles your pores for four, eight, or twelve sessions, leaving you with a custom regimen to keep you glowing.

Slim Chance
Get your fill of liquid-light detox with a three-day raw food cleanse from newcomer Gingersnap’s Organic. The crew delivers to Manhattan, but if you’re ambitious, you can bike to the East Village and pick up chia breakfast pudding, hearty salads, and pepita-topped tacos with chili-corn flax tortillas.

Ditch diet soda in favor of healthier alternative Spindrift Soda. The small-batch, carbonated suds contain freshly squeezed fruit and come in flavors like orange mango and sparkling blackberry.

Pretty, Please
Though beauty comes from within, looking hot on the outside does wonders for your mental health. A mani/pedi with Tenoverten’s debut line of six polish colors (we love the copper and carbon shades) nails the concept. For times when your curling iron isn’t enough, book an in-home hair and makeup session with experts from Prieto Select.

If all else fails, we hear eating less, working out more, and getting extra sleep work like magic.
