The Beauty Beat: 2/27-3/5

Kiss off with Clinique Chubby Sticks, de-stress with Equissage at Equinox and work it out at Symbio.

BEAUTY: Fat is where it’s at with Clinique’s Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balms. Sure, these sticks look like fatty crayons for Kindergarten kids, but what’s inside is a nourishing lip balm packed with moisture and a dash of shine. These new lip treats come in eight shades, ranging from Chunky Cherry (sheer cherry red) to Richer Raisin (sheer plum brown). The best part: These sticks don’t need sharpening. Just roll them up to keep the color coming. GET IT: $15, Sephora Aventura, 19575 Biscayne Blvd. #723, Aventura; 305.931.9579. 

SPA: Knotted-up neck, stiff hips, tight hamstrings—you don’t just need a massage, you need an Equissage. Equinox’s take on a custom massage, this latest offering from the spa takes what ails you, assesses it and gives you a completely customized rubdown. The service starts with your therapist evaluating your problem areas and then hitting your aches and pains with sports, deep-tissue or Swedish massage techniques and the wonderful-scented oils that come along with them. Need a good stretch? Simply ask your therapist to work it into your service. Want a little extra time on your lower back? Go ahead. GET IT: $140 for 60 minutes, $175 for 90 minutes. The Spa at Equinox Aventura, Coral Gables and South Beach.
GYM: Miami International Fashion Week kicks off March 3 through 6. And if those fat-free, longer-than-long legs stomping down the catwalk have you feeling a little flab-tastic, head to the newest gym to hit South Beach. Symbio officially opens March 4. Combining the art of exercise with the power of science, the Purdy Avenue workout center features a wellness area, fitness center and state-of-the art Cybex equipment and BioFit and BodyFit programs.

Stop in to take a tour and find out about pre-sale packages, complete with 13-month memberships, even 35 percent off deals for those who sign up now. After hitting this one-stop health shop, you may be ready to do your own little turn on the catwalk next year. GET IT: 1815 Purdy Ave., Miami Beach; 786.228.5440.
