Bath products, body massages and more to help you get prepped for another sultry Atlanta summer.
Warm weather’s setting in for the season, and sleeveless tops, sundresses, and shorts will soon take over your closet (if they haven’t already). From organic skincare to in-home-massages—and even a few injectables—these indulgences will have you looking and feeling warm-weather ready.
Restock your beauty cabinet with sumptuous bath and body treats from Atlanta-based Little Barn Apothecary’s line of organic, wild-harvested products. The botanical ingredients— such as honeysuckle, lemongrass, mint and lavender—that make up the body scrubs, oils, bath soaks, mists and more are mostly sourced from nearby farmers’ markets or Little Barn Apothecary’s own backyard garden. A must-have from the new spring collection is a divine Coconut and Cactus Hydrating Milk Bath ($34), a powder chock-full of coconut milk, aloe leaf powder and a dash of pink clay to turn a warm bath into a restorative soak. Next, scoop up the Rosewood and Ylang Ylang Body Wash ($16), a calming blend that produces a gentle lather and has antimicrobial and skin-softening benefits. And another one to grab: the Honeysuckle Grapefruit Body Oil ($34) that provides post-bath hydration with skin-smoothing jojoba, vitamin E, sesame and avocado oils that won’t feel greasy.

Bring the spa to your doorstep with Soothe, a new mobile massage on demand service that recently launched in Atlanta (it’s also in 21 other locations in the U.S. and Canada). You can enjoy your 60-, 90- or 120-minute Swedish, deep tissue or sports massage in the comfort of your own home and without having to get up and get out afterwards like a typical spa service (so cruel!). A massage therapist can be at your door between 8 a.m. and midnight, with as little as 60 minutes advance notice. Rest assured, all of Soothe’s massage therapists are licensed, background checked and fully certified. The cost ranges from $99 to $169, depending on the length of the massage, and includes gratuity and taxes—all you need to do is focus on relaxing and getting your snooze on post-service.
Looking for a way to make your skin smooth, supple and ready for its summer glow? Then a visit to the new boutique Panacea Plastic Surgery in Inman Park might be just the ticket. (Hey, to each her own.) The luxurious space with dark wood floors and chandelier lighting is run by Emory-trained and board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Kimberly Singh and Dr. Nour Abboushi, who provide a personalized service from check-in to post-procedure. Choose from a variety of non-surgical rejuvenation treatments, such as Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma and the recently FDA approved Kybella, which dissolves a double chin. CoolSculpting, a non-surgical procedure that literally freezes fat away, is also offered as a body-contouring option. Pricing varies depending on the treatment and individual.
