Ice, Ice, Baby: Cool Off in Miami Now

Cooling services from Magic City beauty spots.

Summertime in Miami is hot—like, real hot. Thankfully, area wellness spots offer various services that are perfect for the season. Want to keep your cool on the stickiest, sweatiest and most humid of summer days and indulge in fabulous treatments? Here’s how: 

The Arctic Plunge at the Standard                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
If a cold shower bodes well for you on a sticky day, consider the Standard’s Arctic Plunge. This circular pool is filled with chilly H2O (50 degrees to be exact) and is designed to relieve muscle contraction and help flush toxins out of your body. Dive in, detox, beat the heat, and repeat. The Standard Spa Miami Beach, 40 Island Ave., Miami Beach, 305.673.1717

The Igloo at Carillon Miami Wellness Resort
It’s hard to believe there’s an igloo in Miami Beach. Deep inside the spa at the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort lies one of Miami’s coolest spots. The icy structure may not house Eskimos but it does offer guests Arctic mists, in menthol, mint and eucalyptus. Aside from cooling your jets, these mists improve circulation and re-energize your body and soul. Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, 6801 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 866.800.3858
