Winter is coming and we all know what that means: dry skin. Cold temperatures, dry air and harsh winds tend to sap skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and stressed. It’s not only the weather that can challenge your skin’s well-being during the winter months. Changes in routine, stress around the holidays, and eating more sugar, carbs and fat than usual (which can happen around the holidays or in response to lack of sunlight) can cause your skin to break out, or cause dryness, tightness and dullness. While there are a number of things you can do at home to keep your body happy and your skin hydrated during the harsh winter months, a trip to the spa can make a world of difference. Seasonal spa treatments can help to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy, glowing and hydrated. So treat yourself to these skin-saving treatments from the Beach Plum Spa. You’ll leave the spa feeling relaxed and refreshed. Your skin will be so soft and supple you’ll scold yourself for not coming here earlier! Here’s a look at some of our ultra-hydrating treatments to prepare your body for the season and all that comes with it.
A Clean Slate: Organic Himalayan Salt Scrub (45 minutes – $115)
A full body scrub is key during the colder seasons as it will rid you of dull, flaky skin. This exfoliating experience uses a mineral-laden, nourishing blend of Himalayan sea salt, seaweed, pumice, acai and guarana blended with essential oils to eliminate dead skin while rejuvenating, balancing, and moisturizing your body. It also happens to drain toxins, resulting in renewed radiance. In essence, after this full-body scrub, your skin will feel as revitalized as ever.
Gift Wrapped: Gifts from the Sea Mud Wrap (60 minutes – $145)
Prepping for winter is all about keeping your skin hydrated. One of the best ways to do so is through a relaxing body wrap. The Gifts from the Sea Mud Wrap begins with a skin brushing and exfoliation, followed by a full body wrap of therapeutic sea body mud. To finish things off, you’ll receive a heavenly head and foot massage.
Stocking Stuffer: Cranberry Manicure (30 minutes – $35)
Cold weather means that your cuticles start to crack and nails begin to chip more often. Schedule a manicure to soften and soothe wind-chapped hands. Our signature Cranberry Manicure is truly a feast for the senses. This hydrating treatment features a magnificent blend of purifying cranberry extracts to gently remove dead skin cells, followed by a message with cranberry lotion.
Treat Yourself: Beach Plum Warm Seashell Massage (80 minutes – $175)
Suffering from the winter blues? A massage may offer you some much-needed relief. Shorter days and colder temperatures leave many feeling depressed and lethargic, yet studies show that regular massages improve mood and reset circadian rhythms, leading to better sleep and more energy. If you’re looking for a spa experience a little outside the ordinary, look no further than the Beach Plum Warm Seashell Massage. This unique and luxurious treatment is one of the spa’s signature treatments. Smooth heated seashells are used to rub away aches and pains while blissful flowing strokes soothe stiffness and lull you into a profound state of relaxation. You’ll drift off into ultimate relaxation and emerge feeling refreshed and ready to take on the season.
