A hangover is an unpleasant experience after a day or night of consuming excessive amounts of alcohol. Being that today is “Cinco de Mayo” also known as “Cinco de Drinko”, a day where people across the country drink tequila and beer to celebrate Mexican independence, I though it would be fitting to clarify some facts and illustrate the benefits of a Spa Day after a day of drinking.
The first fact I want to clarify is that Cinco de Mayo is not actually Mexican Independence day. The actual day of Mexican Independence is September 16. Cinco de Mayo or May 5 is actually celebrated as the day when Mexican forces defeated the French in the Battle of Puebla. Cinco de Mayo celebrates General Ignacio Zaragoza’s victory over the French. Hopefully this clarification prevents you from looking uneducated in front of your friends. A “Viva Mexico!” or “Arriba!” shout is still acceptable and encouraged on Cinco de Mayo.
You know you have a hangover when you feel it. Headache, dizziness, nausea, sweating, and drowsiness are some of the most common symptoms in a hangover. Excessive alcohol consumption leads to a great time, but also dehydrates the body and puts in a state of metabolic acidosis. A Spa Day at Prestige Med Spa aims to replenish, rehydrate and rejuvenate your body.
Our Spa day starts with a refreshing beverage with fruits of your choice to replenish your body. Next is a complete body scrub and massage to ease strained muscles, loosen knots, and eliminate wastes. This is one of the best treatments to really make you feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Following the body scrub and massage, a cleansing facial is done to clean pores, hydrate your skin, neutralize oxidants and feed back all the nutrients lost. A variety of other treatments can be added to your spa day, including manicure, pedicure, eyebrow shaping, makeup, IV cocktails, and teeth whitening. All of our procedures are done by trained professionals and under the supervision of our medical director Dr. Roberto Polanco.
We wish everyone safety and a fabulous time this Cinco de Mayo. If you unfortunately suffer a hangover, give us a call at 305-595-2244 and let us relax, replenish, and rejuvenate your body and soul.
