Airport spas are popping up across the country, helping you make the most of flight delays and layovers. Here are six of our favorite places in unwind before boarding.
San Francisco International Airport; Pittsburgh International Airport; Philadelphia International Airport; New York's JFK International Airport
Over 20,000 travelers a month can't be wrong -- XpresSpa is an airports-only spa with branches across the country, specializing in skincare, massages, waxing, facials, and nail treatments. If you're green-minded, spoil yourself with a seaweed facial and an organic add-on such as an exfoliating papaya mask.
Newark International Airport (Terminal C, Gate 92)
Make the most of your airport downtime by picking up a few beauty tips. Head to the d_parture spa for a Mini Makeover, and let their staff provide you with a skin type analysis, shade trend forecast, and makeup application instruction. Whether you're on your way out of the country or on your way home, this lesson is sure to come in handy.
Traveling can leave you feeling less than refreshed. Airport spas are a soothing solution.
Oasis Day Spa
Where: For JetBlue passengers at New York's JFK International Airport
Hours in a cramped airplane seat can cause serious aches. The Frequent Flyer Back Treatment at JFK's Oasis Day Spa is designed to take care of the soreness. It's also a great place to get a 15-minute facial, 10-minute massage, or quick nail polish change (airplanes don't wait for beauty treatments!).
Where: Boston's Logan International Airport; Miami International Airport
Traveling can leave you feeling less than refreshed. Rejuvenate at the Jetsetter Spa -- services include purifying facials, soothing eye treatments to cut down on puffiness, and an antistress pedicure.
Where: Chicago's O'Hare International Airport
If you find yourself idle in the midst of one of the country's busiest airports, stop by the BackRub Hub in Terminal 3. Licensed massage therapists can ease your tension away with a 10-30 minute chair massage. No appointments are necessary for this first-come, first-serve service. Traveling never felt so good.
Where: Vancouver International Airport, Canada
The Absolute Spa has it all. Legs sore from being crowded in your seat? Stretch out with a Circulator Anti-Swelling Leg Massage. Makeup not as fresh as it was when you left your house?
