Your number one New Year’s resolution should be to treat yourself. And what better way than to spend time at one of these luxury spas, while receiving one of these refreshing, relaxing, and rejuvenating body scrubs — the best in Miami.
1 Turkish Hamam Rub and Scrub at The Standard
Inspired by the bellystones of Turkish hammams, this soothing body scrub will have you feeling refreshed in no time. You’ll be bathed with coconut milk and exfoliated on the heated marble of the hammam.

2 Lather Cranberry Bliss Body Treatment at The Spa at Equinox
This decadent scrub uses Lather’s Cranberry Sugar Rub, which exploits the antioxidant power of cranberries to revitalize the skin and sunflowers, sweet almonds and kukui nuts for their natural moisturizing properties. The warm scrub will wash away to reveal your natural glowing skin without an oily residue.

3 Quintessence Body Scrub at Mandarin Oriental
As Mandarin Oriental’s signature body scrub, the Quintessence uses essential oil blends to successfully bring the body’s energy flow into alignment. The scrub combines the fresh scents of ginger, mandarin and frankincense while using sea salt and sweet almond oil to gently smooth and rejuvenate your skin.

4 FatGirlScrub Treatment at Bliss Spa at the W
It’s not what it sounds like – this skin-smoothing body scrub is not really for fat girls. But Bliss Spa’s signature FatGirlScrub is known for its reducing lumps and bumps in the skin thanks to Himalayan Pink Salt and seaweed extract. The scrub is followed by Vichy shower, a layering of their skin-firming gel, Love Handler, and a finishing coat of FatGirlSlim or FatGirlSleep firming creams.
