Relax, Refresh, Reboot

In honor of Bastille Day, the Guerlain Spa at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel is offering French manicures, a Tour de France sports massage and an Orchidée Impériale facial. Relief from the heat can be found at the TriBeCa Spa of Tranquility, where cryotherapy massage aims to increase blood flow and loosen the kinks. A few blocks away, the newly opened Aire Ancient Baths offer thermal baths in 50-degree to 102-degree waters. Many visitors opt for a long soak listening to the underwater sound system or combine their water treatment with a four-handed massage.

Skin care guru David Colbert is giving boosts of vitamin C via the Triad facial that combines a microderm scrub, peel and laser toning. Another specialist, Adam Kolker, customizes facials with an array of masks and peels in his Upper East Side enclave. Those looking for a swifter summer pick-me-up should make their way to Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger. Seven minutes is all makeup-artist-turned-brow-expert Robyn Cosio needs to create model-worthy eyebrows. Having handled backstage makeup for Donna Karan and Calvin Klein, Cosio sends each client home with a photo so they can do their own upkeep. The bicoastal Cosio, whose celebrity clients included Kate Bosworth and Nicole Kidman, will be in New York from July 16 to 20. Cosio said, “It’s instant gratification or, as my book publisher said, ‘A five minute facelift.’”
