The spa skinny from New York Fashion Week: We just got a word with supermodel and actress Beverly Johnson, the first African American to ever appear on the cover of VOGUE, about her thoughts on one of the most popular spa trends right now: slimming down and instant inch loss.

“I’ve tried absolutely everything at the spa,” Beverly said. “I love the slimming wraps. They peel it off and the results are there. Inches melt into the seaweed.”

Sitting front row at Georges Chakra, the 57-year-old who has been named by VOGUE as one of the 10 greatest supermodels of all time, knows things aren’t what they used to be. She looked vibrant and incredibly fit, and she’s not shy to admit that one of her secrets is the spa.

Unless you’re Chanel Iman who could probably wait a few years, you might consider trying one of these treatments during Spa Week, when inch loss is not only instant, but affordable too. Find your slim with these $50 spa treatments – September 13-19 for the West Coast and Chicago, October 11-17 for the rest of the country.
