Winter weather unfortunately can lead to dry, flaky skin. Here is an at-home spa remedy for keeping your skin hydrated and nourished!
Use a dry soft fiber brush before showering and gently dry brush the skin. This helps to exfoliate dead skin and increase blood circulation to the skin surface – enhancing skin luminosity.
Then shower off skin using a favorite body shower gel.
Depending on skin type you can create your own hydrating/exfoliating scrub from either sugar or salt incorporating a base oil and drops of your favorite essential oils to blend together. Sugar for sensitive skin and salt for deeper exfoliation. Thoroughly and gently exfoliate and rinse skin then pat towel dry to allow the hydrating effects of the oil to remain on the skin.
Depending on skin type/sensitivity this can be repeated once or twice a week. Healthy skin aids in the efficient removal of toxins from the body.
In addition to these tips, Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Scottsdale is offering two very fun and festive treatments this holiday season:
Cinnamon and Honey Body Glow
Indulge the skin with propolis from the rainforests of Brazil. The treatment begins with a gentle, exfoliating blend of brown sugar and honey, warmly wrapped as the omega and vitamin-enriched elixir deeply penetrates the skin, resulting in a healthy, luminous glow. The 60-minute treatment is $165 and the 90-minute (with 30 additional minutes of massage) is $235.
The Peppermint Pedi
The delicious aroma of sweet peppermint is infused into this winter pedicure, with a relaxing leg massage, for $79.
