A Moisturizing Makeover

…plus a getaway and a spa escape

DEW THIS: Living in Florida can leave your skin high and dry. Constant exposure to the sun, a dip in the chlorine-filled pool—they’re just a few of the culprits for your alligator-esque epidermis. Time to slather on something that will keep your skin smooth and supple. We’re big fans of Lindi Skin Soothing Balm. It’s a great fit for anyone with sensitive skin because it’s free of fragrance and other allergens. And it works magic on scaly hands and feet, so you can say see ‘ya later alligator for good. But don’t take our word for it. Just be one of five NBCMiami.com readers to e-mail WantThis@www.nbcmiami.com and you can win a bottle for yourself, courtesy of GBS, The Beauty Store. Be sure to include your name and address. $25, GBS, The Beauty Store; 308 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables; 305.446.6654

PARADISE FOUND: Enough with all this stay-cation business. Origins wants you to get the heck out of here. Let them help you escape with its “Leave it All Behind” sweepstakes. You and someone you love who also needs a break will steal away to Los Cabos, Mexico for three nights at a chi-chi von fancy resort. And if you aren’t the grand-prize winner, you can still snag free products from Origins that will make your stay here at home a little more bearable.

ROCK THE CASBAH: Whether you’re a mom who’s been chasing kids around all summer or a college kid craving a much-needed break from those already up-coming exams, Casbah Salon & Spa understands a little “me” time is essential. That’s why September is all about “Back to School” spa specials. Get a free pedicure the same day you book a massage and a facial. Or, book a spa service worth $100 and get a second service of equal or lesser value at 50 percent off. Available Monday through Wednesday only through September 30. 1000 Seminole Drive, Fort Lauderdale; 954.630.0633
