7 Winter Spa Treatments That Will Warm You Up
Warm Cocoa Berry Pore Refining Facial, Chill Spa at Hotel Terra Jackson Hole, Wyo.
Between the hydrating chocolate and refining berry blend, this facial sounds good enough to eat. But it's entirely focused on winter skin hydration, not snacking.
The first step of the Warm Cocoa Berry Pore Refining Facial is a Hungarian mud treatment that prepares the skin for the pore-refining effects of a blended masque containing cranberries, raspberries and blackberries. A blackberry product infusion helps elevate the pore refining results of this facial.
Next is the chocolate mousse hydration mask, which leaves the skin silky smooth."A lot of guests have not experienced a stimulating facials like this before. The results are plumping and rejuvenating and a nice glow that you don't get with a normal facial," spa director Sara Dolentz says. "This facial, across the board, has had the best results for a winter facial. People come out with a glow and with restored, hydrated skin." The cost for this midwinter glow is $149 for a 50 minutes or $199 for 80 minutes. Warming Gingerbread Sugar Body Scrub & Gingerbread Wrap, The Spa at L'Auberge de Sedona, Sedona, Ariz. Here's yet another treatment made up of warming ingredients that sound good enough to eat. The Spa at L'Auberge de Sedona's Warming Gingerbread Sugar Body Scrub & Gingerbread Wrap involves such things as organic natural body sugar and warming ginger oil. The first step is application of rich body butter. Next is being wrapped in warm blankets and getting either a scalp and neck or foot massage, depending on preference. The 45-minute scrub costs $115; the 15-minute wrap is $30. Winter Spice and All Things Nice, Salamander Resort and Spa, Middleburg, Va. Sound like the name of a winter fairytale? The Salamander Resort's Winter Spice and All Things Nice is all things warm and relaxing. It begins with a hot stone massage, moves on to include a carrot cranberry facial and carrot moisturizers and wraps up with a warm-stone eye treatment and beeswax lip conditioning. This nearly three-hour warming indulgence costs $325. Champagne of the Sea, Spa Aquazul, San Diego And finally, back to that fabulous San Diego treatment. Champagne of the Sea begins with, well, what else but a glass of champagne to get the treatment off to a good start? There's also a full-body, dry-brush skin exfoliation, which readies the skin for absorption of the products that come next a frothy, self-warming mud made from seaweed plucked from a bay in Mont Saint-Michel, France. Once the mud is applied, a therapist wraps you in foil and a thermal blanket. As the mud goes to work detoxifying and ridding skin of impurities, and you drift off peacefully in the warm wrap, the therapist conducts either a scalp or foot massage. The treatment concludes with full body moisturizer application. The cost of thawing out in style in San Diego is $120.
