Your Summer 2013 Spa Guide to Indulgences and Relaxation

Top Notch Resort and Spa, Vermont
Long known for its massages, Top Notch recently added a menu of results-driven offerings to its services.

"We tried to add services for clients who are looking for relaxing and also want great results," spa director Alexandra Sharpe says.

Hot and new here is the diamond microdermabrasion treatment, which many skin care experts say is better than the once popular crystal microdermabrasion.

"Diamond microdermabrasion gives the skin rejuvenation without the adverse affects of crystal, such as the particles being blown across the skin," Sharpe explains.

This approach to microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells and initiates skin turnover without feeling as abrasive. And it respects the integrity of the skin, Sharpe says.

Another bonus of this spa: the location. It's part of the Top Notch Resort, nestled in the mountains of Vermont, with two outdoor pools and spectacular views.

The Spa at Rancho Bernardo Inn, California
The setting of this spa is half the treat. Located 30 minutes outside San Diego, where you're blanketed in bone-warming desert heat, Rancho Bernardo Inn is a sprawling hacienda-style resort. Walking through the resort to the spa, you're surrounded by the fragrances of jasmine, rosemary and lavender. At the spa entrance there's a stunning saltwater swimming pool and several casitas or outdoor treatment rooms nearby.

This spa's focus is using organic and natural ingredients to cleanse the body and leave skin healthy and glowing.

The spa's 'Made Fresh Daily' limited edition packages highlight the best products in season. The latest treatment under this banner is the Sweet Sugared Strawberry Treatment, which includes a strawberry sugar body scrub, oatmeal body wrap and massage and coconut oil scalp massage. The treatment is finished with a strawberry honey lemonade.

"Strawberry has a lot of alpha-hydroxy acids," spa director Cindy Boody says. "They also have lot of different vitamins to help keep your skin safe while out in summer sun -- vitamins A, C, E, and K. We also included oatmeal, so you're getting skin-drenching hydration."
