The Euro
Aviary Beauty & Wellness Collective
Flaky, sensitive skin is the norm this time of year. The remedy: a facial that uses natural Dr. Hauschka products to boost moisture, and rhythmic hand and brush strokes on the face and neck to stimulate lymph drainage for a stuffy head. 60 minutes, $115

Honey Detox Body Treatment
The Spa at Four Seasons
Get slathered in a body butter—specially created for cold season—said to activate the immune system. Then relax with a face mask (made with honey from the hotel’s garden) and a massage. To cap it off, sip a mug of honey and ginger tea. 80 minutes, $240

Cupid’s Couples Escape
The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee
For a romantic mini getaway, try the newly renovated spa at the Ritz on Lake Oconee, 85 miles away. This package for two comes with hot stone massages, a steamy soak, Champagne, dessert, and lakeside views. 75 minutes, $465

Sinus Relief Facial
Fabu Face Spa & Fabutique
It’s Valentine’s Day, and while sinus relief may not exactly scream romance, you’ll be even more alluring if you aren’t congested. At this Decatur spa, steam and eucalyptus open up airways, while a facial and a peppermint neck and scalp massage reinvigorate. 60 minutes, $90

Hot Milk and Almond Pedicure
Bliss Spa, W Hotel, Downtown and Midtown
Pamper your cold tootsies with a moisturizing soak made with steamed whole milk and almond oil. After a scrub and a pedicure, your feet will be ready for a beach getaway—or just padding around in front of the fireplace. 60 minutes, $65
