7 Winter Spa Treatments That Will Warm You Up
SAN DIEGO (TheStreet) -- Here's a great way to rid yourself of the winter chills: Have your body slathered in a-self warming seaweed mud and wrapped from head to toe in foil and thermal warming blankets like a human burrito.
The result is pure, blissful, cozy warmth. And silky smooth skin -- all in the dead of winter.
This is just one example of the luxurious warming winter treatments spas across the country are rolling out to help shake off the winter blues (and dry skin).
To be fair, I had my decadent Champagne of the Sea body treatment at the Hilton Bayfront, in San Diego, where there's really no such thing as winter. That makes the city a great choice for a bone warming escape and pampering destination for people in colder parts of the country.If you can't make it to San Diego to defrost, though, there are plenty of other spas across the country that have recently added luxurious winter warming treatments to their offerings. From candle wax massages to honey application from head to toe, there are dozens of options for warming up. But none of them come cheap. Gingersnap Cure, Out of the Woods Spa at Twin Farms, Barnard, VT The Gingersnap Cure is designed to sooth the body and the soul. It begins with a dry brushing of the body to facilitate detoxification and a gingersnap sugar scrub to gently remove dry, dead skin and elevate the spirit. Then it gets even better. A warming honey mask is spread slowly all over the body, enveloping you in pure, golden liquid warmth. "It's basically just delicious," spa director Erin Sehnal says. "Honey helps stimulate circulation while softening skin. It's a natural softener, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial -- everything is good about honey."
