Oh summer in Miami, you’re a cruel mistress. You make wearing makeup a chore, you give our hair a humidity-infusion we never asked for and then you subject us to swimsuit season. Luckily, we have Chanel, The Palms Aveda Spa and Flywheel to keep us going strong.
BEAUTY: Summer is here. While we beg you to please not get too much sun, we understand your need to feel a kiss of color. The solution: Soleil Tan de Chanel (Luminous Bronzing Powder) in Sable Beige. The bronzer is a gradation of colors that lend to the perfect golden goddess hue. Also from Chanel’s summer collection, check out Glossimer in Calypso for a perfectly peach pout. Hint: It works well with a golden glow. GET IT: Chanel, 9700 Collins Ave., Bal Harbour Shops; 305.868.0550
SPA: It’s summer, OK, not officially, but it’s been hot enough to feel like summer for months now. That’s why The Palms Aveda Spa is kicking off summer early with Summer of Spa. From now through the end of September, save daily on spa treatments, like massages and facials (think 50 minutes for $99, 80 minutes for $136). Plus, score 20 percent off all salon services, to help battle the humidity and otherwise. GET IT:Now through September 30. 3025 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305.908.5460.
GYM: Still thinking about getting in shape for swimsuit season. Tick tock. Why not try riding a bike (in the a.c.)? Flywheel, the spin gym, opens its doors June 16 in Miami Beach. Using amphitheatre-like seating for cycles, you’ll get a full-view of the instructor as you pedal your way to a leaner, healthier you. Plus, a DJ gives you music to move to while you put that pedal to the metal. Add free cycling shoes to each class and you just planned your summer of self-improvement.
