When was the last time you treated yourself to a little rest and relaxation? But when it comes to the trendy side of healthy indulgence, only the super wealthy are able to afford luxuries such as bloody faces and overindulgent spa retreats.
But should you ever hit the jackpot, here are the most trendy (and expensive) beauty and health trends of 2014 that you might want to consider checking out for yourself:
Vampire Facelift Popularized by reality star Kim Kardashian, the Vampire Facelift is a top request for clientele in Beverly Hills. The facelift works by extracting, purifying and re-injecting the client’s faces with their own blood, which supposedly results in a more youthful look.
24-Carat Facials 24-carat treatments are the ultimate glam regimen. Mineral creams are first applied to the face, which is then layered with thin sheets of gold leaf. This supposedly allows the skin to absorb better, resulting in a more youthful and radiant complexion.
Mineral and Herbal Body Wraps The benefits of these natural element-infused wraps include soothing the skin, calming inflammation, and erasing cellulite. Even younger-looking celebrities are happy to shell out hundreds for a refreshed, enhanced appearance.
Cold-Pressed Juice Cleanse This increasingly popular cleanse involves downing flavorful, vitamin-enriched cold-pressed juices that supposedly help you shed weight fast. A three day cleanse starts at $200, ranging up to several hundred if used over longer periods of time.
DIY Juice Cleanse Hardcore juicers swear that "Do-It-Yourself juicing" is the only way to go. Since extracting the raw nutrients in the plants involves high-tech juicing equipment, you can expect to spend anywhere between $100 to $500.
SoulCycle Devoted fans of this movement willingly shell out thousands of dollars for class packages. Trainers instruct cyclists every step of the workout as they can monitor their progress and vital signs through multiple metrics.

Spa V At Hotel Victor Deemed the crème de la crème of luxury spa treatments, the Spa V at the Hotel Victor in South Beach offers a $5,000 bath treatment that involves filling an infinity tub purely with Evian water.
