Spa Gregorie's, Newport Beach, Rancho Santa Margarita and Del Mar, Calif.
These deluxe boutique spas are among the nation's best day spas, consistently receiving awards for "Favorite Day Spa" from industry-leading magazines such as American Spa, Day Spa and Spa Finder (as well as reader-voted publications).
Spa Gregorie's hottest treatment for this season is the Arcona Organic Brightening Facial, which addresses uneven pigmentation and fine lines, improves skin clarity and smoothness. It's another secret of some of Hollywood's most famous faces. The treatment relies on a combination of enzymes, Kojic Acid, Lactic Acid and Vitamin C.
The 50-minute treatment makes you feel pampered, and your skin can be clear and glowing for days afterward.
And this is not a spa you want to rush out of after the treatment is over. Arrive to your treatment early or plan to stay afterward to enjoy the spa's eucalyptus steam rooms or tranquil quiet rooms. The spa also provides a locker room fully stocked with skin and hair care products.Rancho Valencia Spa, California
And finally, it's not only women who are concerned about their appearance. Men certainly have their share of vanities and image concerns, no matter what the season. And for that, Rancho Valencia has designed just the treatment: the Bourbon Cowboy treatment. The treatment involves a hot whiskey body treatment and Bourbon Bubbler Scrub. This is followed by lotion application with Whoopie! White Velvet Cream, which is aimed at soothing skin and fighting wrinkles through deep penetration of vitamins A and E. "The alcohol in whiskey has a strong dose of antioxidants, which destroy cancer cells," spa director Arielle Sutton says. "Topically you can benefit from antioxidants. So while it's a fun, whimsical treatment, there's a lot of therapeutic benefit."
