With summer just around the corner, it’s officially time to start thinking about bikinis and shorts. And since you’ve probably been hiding under cozy sweaters for the past six months, your bod may need a little TLC. Whether you’re suffering from a case of dull skin, sandpaper feet or pasty legs, we’ve curated a list of the best spa treatments around the U.S. that will have you gorgeous and glowing by the time summer rolls around. Think foot facials, body firming treatments, spray tans with body scrubs and more.
Phoenician’s Finest Facial
Perched in the middle of the desert, The Phoenician Centre for Well-Being is a definite if you’re in the area. It’s Scottsdale’s only five star, five diamond resort, so rest assured you’ll be in good hands. And the Phoenician’s Finest Facial is just what you need to get your face glowing for summer. It starts with a pharmaceutical grade vitamin C enzyme peel, which preps the skin for an oxygen infusion of hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. Green tea serum then diminishes fine lines, leaving the skin healthy, hydrated and renewed. To top it off, the esthetician will apply tailored Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF products in order to keep your skin glowing and protected.

Elements of Wellness Signature Experience
The Elements of Wellness Signature Experience is, well, an experience that you and your body will never forget. Prior to your visit, you’ll fill out a series of questions that will help the master spa esthetician determine the best spa therapies that will renew and refresh both the mind and body. Ours consisted of a hydrotherapy treatment, an intense full-body aromatherapy scrub to slough away dead cells and bring blood flow to the surface and an hour-long full-body massage. The goal of these treatments is to not only make you look fabulous but to also bring your body back to balance. You’ll leave feeling like a new person and ready to conquer all that summer has in store.

The Love Handler
We love a good treatment at Bliss, especially when it involves working on the not-so-lovely love handles. The Love Handler consists of a vacuum-assisted massage, essential oils and a seaweed rubberized mask that helps to firm the waist area. In a nutshell, it’s not liposuction, but it will help decrease bloating and diminish cellulite. The spa recommends six sessions to see the best results and you can also grab the at-home Bliss Love Handler product to use in between treatments.

Alpine Glow Spray Tan Service
A spray tan is essential going into shorts season, but if your skin isn’t prepped prior to getting sprayed, forget about it. That’s why it’s important to take advantage of a treatment like this Alpine Glow Spray Tan Service to ensure that your skin is fully prepped. Say goodbye to rough, flaky skin with an invigorating body scrub that will leave your skin super smooth and hydrated. Then it’s time for a full coverage spray tan that will give your body a natural-looking sun-kissed glow.

You’ll be “California Dreamin'” while experiencing this amazing treatment at the Four Seasons Westlake Village Spa. It begins with gentle exfoliation via sugarcane extract infused with shea butter, noni, safflower and several other soothing oils that offer intense hydration. Once your skin is as soft as a baby’s bum, a peppermint clay body mask is applied to draw out toxins. The final step includes a heavenly dose of grape stem cell and white tea body butter to moisturize. Think radiant, glowing skin all over.

Last, but not least, organic murumuru butter moisturizes and restores elasticity, leaving your skin gorgeous and glowing.

It incorporates gentle microdermabrasion, soft laser toning and light chemical peeling, which helps improve the skin’s appearance.
