Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back to the daily grind. Work has piled up over the vacation, the weather is cold, and your New Year’s resolution to exercise at 6 in the morning (such a great idea at the time) is now starting to lose its appeal. The recovery period after the holiday break feels like a month of Mondays. A spa treatment at Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology may be just enough to get you through.
But you’ve just had a vacation, right? How can you possibly justify taking time to pamper yourself? We don’t blame you for finding time to relax, but you may have trouble convincing others. We have come up with a few excuses for you to use in just such an emergency—you can sneak away to the spa, and no one will know the difference.
1. You need to visit your dentist to fill a cavity.
This excuse is perfectly convincing. After a season of treats and sugar, it only makes sense that you could be suffering from a cavity. Plus, with the implied pain and discomfort, your peers may even feel bad for you. Sympathy is an added bonus.
2. You have to go to the mechanic about a strange sound in your engine.
Logical enough that no one will doubt you, and vague enough that no one will investigate. Many people know little about car engines, so they won’t ask you for details you can’t make up on the spot. But beware of nosy car buffs—they could potentially ruin your excuse.
3. Your dog has an appointment with the vet.
If your pet is willing and able to ride in the car (most are, especially if you roll down the window) then you can get away with the perfect partner-in-crime. Your dog will never tell anyone that you really went to the spa in Austin for a facial instead of to the vet. As long as you don’t leave him in the car for too long, your pet probably won’t mind.
Feel free to use these and any other excuses that may fit your specific situation. And if your cover is blown, come to the spa in Austin anyway. We offer the HydraFacial, a cutting-edge treatment that will leave your skin fresh, clean, and moisturized without any pain or redness. You deserve some time to sit back and relax, and that’s the truth. To schedule an appointment, call Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology today.
