Washington DC Aveda Institute

Sublime.... I had a facial at the Washington DC Aveda Institute, and I can't imagine how I've gone this long without one. The Aveda institute is a teaching facility whose students provide cosmetic and aesthetic services to the general public. As such, your usual Aveda services are heavily discounted. The service is excellent. The students are supervised - so there's no fear. And the spa itself is absolutely beautiful!

Don't get me wrong. I'm no stranger to the Aveda Institute. I was a regular patron of their New York location before I got engaged and recently moved to southern pastures.

However, I got complacent after the move, taking a long time to settle in and discover new hot spots (law school probably has something to do with it). Well, I awoke from my slumber this afternoon to encounter a long lost friend, even more wonderful than remembered. I'm loathe to admit I feel asleep during the facial - twice!

I left feeling limber, my face aglow, my wallet bulging (a 90 minute facial is only $40!), my resolve firm. Regular facials will become a part of my regular routine, they're good for the skin and great for the soul!
