A Mermaid-Inspired Spa Treatment Exists and It's Amazing

File this under exotic sea goddess heaven.

By Talia Ergas

It’s the middle of the summer and we all want just want to feel beachy and glamorous like a mermaid, right? Except, when you actually spend a day at the beach you leave with a nasty sunburn and sand in your bikini bottoms ... OK, so here's a better idea: What if we could get the beachy, glamorous experience that'll make us feel like sea goddesses at a spa instead?

Haven Spa in NYC just launched a body wrap and pedicure treatment combo that’s a dream come true for any mermaid obsessive. It starts off with a Makizushi Wrap, during which your entire body will be gently exfoliated with a seaweed salt scrub. A nice touch: the exfoliants rubbing against your body will sound just like the waves crashing against the sand. Then, your body is slathered in a seaweed mask (yes, it smells just like you think it does) and you’re rolled up in plastic wrap like a burrito (and given a scalp massage!) while the product soaks in. Another nice touch: instead of the sleepy spa music you’re used to, Haven Spa plays beach party-ready songs by artists like Justin Timberlake and Alessia Cara. Then, you’re showered down all while lying on on the table, and then given a moisturizing massage with an algae-based lotion. 

After that, you’re off to the nail salon and let’s be clear: the Mermaid Pedi is not your average pedicure. First, your fins are bathed in a sea salt soak. They’re scrubbed with a sea algae and shea butter scrub, then moisturized with an algae lotion aptly called Beach Please. But the best part has to be the snacks! After all, what’s a mermaid-inspired spa day without a coconut or mango sorbet while you get your toes painted? 

All together, the treatment, valued at $150, will run you only $125, which is not bad at all for a full-body transformation into an exotic sea goddess. Verdict: highly recommend!
