As summer fades and fall moves in, it is important to schedule the spa treatments that will help you prepare for the winter months. Taking care of your skin and protecting it from the elements can be a lengthy process that doesn’t happen overnight, which is why you should get a head start on your spa services before the countless fall activities take over your time. With a few essential autumn spa treatments, you’ll be on your way to a relaxing holiday season looking both rejuvenated and youthful. Schedule one or more of the following body and facial spa treatments and set the season off right.
Designed to purify the skin, these facial spa treatments are one of the best spa services to prepare yourself for the harsh winter months. First your skin is prepared using techniques and a scrub to smooth and refine its texture. Then a face mask is applied to help extract impurities, followed by the application of a hydrating cream. After a few of these sessions, your skin will be ready to fight the elements and stay hydrated throughout the dryer months of the year.
If you’re hoping to look younger at the turn of the new year, then a series of Enzyme Facials is just what you need. This specialized spa treatment includes an enzyme peel that brings oxygen and nutrients to the skin’s surface, helping to rid it of rough skin and impurities. It is then followed by a collagen boosting mask and the application of protein enzymes to leave your skin healthy and youthful even after just one visit.
The elements can wreak havoc on your skin, leaving it dry and dull, which is why a hydrating facial is just what you need before the cold temperatures set in. During these soothing facial spa treatments, your spa technician will cleanse and exfoliate the skin, apply a hydrating face mask, and complete a soothing facial massage using soft oils and hydrating cream. You’ll leave feeling better than ever.
Using Swedish massage techniques, a professional spa therapist will nurture your body from head to toe. The relaxing massage experience serves to boost circulation and soothe tired muscles.
Using deeper, more intense techniques, your massage therapist will work on stimulating your muscles and releasing built-up tension for a truly relaxing experience.
In this specialized spa treatment, a massage therapist will work on reducing chronic pain and increasing mobility by applying pressure to contracted muscles. While uncomfortable at times, this massage is the ultimate way to work out chronic pain.
Typically, this type of spa service includes a full body scrub, followed by the application of a hydrating mask, and a silky lotion, which will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed, and rejuvenated.
If lucky enough to find this treatment at a spa near you, make sure to add it to your fall activities. These spa services involve soaking in a blend of coconut milk with other fine ingredients before receiving a relaxing massage. After one of these sessions, you’ll leave feeling refreshed and reenergized.
Before receiving spa body treatments, there are a few things you should do to prepare for your experience. To maximize the health benefits of your spa treatments, it is suggested that you drink a lot of water, abstain from ingesting foods or beverages with high levels of caffeine, and refrain from eating too much. Your autumn spa treatments should be an opportunity to relax. If you are too energized or your body is focused on digesting food, you won’t be able to reap the full benefits of your relaxing massage, full body wrap, or spa facial. You’ll also want to take a warm shower either at home before you arrive or once you get there so that your body is clean and free of sweat and dirt on the surface. If you're headed to a spa with a hydrotherapy circuit, make sure you bring a swimsuit and arrive early so that you can take advantage of its full benefits.
The winter months can have disastrous effects on your skin’s health and with all the fall activities and winter holidays, you may feel more stressed than usual, which is why it is important to schedule your autumn spa treatments in advance so that you not only have time to get in a number of relaxing massages, soothing facials, or spa body treatments before the stress and damage to your skin sets in, but also because countless others will be doing the same, which means if you don’t plan ahead, you might be left wishing you had.
