The crazy whirlwind of holiday preparations can wear you out, but don’t let shopping and decorating overload dampen your cheer. Many local spas offer holiday-inspired packages that will help you relax and renew in the midst of this demanding season. Here are three locations where you can de-stress and get back into the holiday spirit.
The December special at the Naples Beach Hotel’s spa is the Cinnamon Spice Marshmallow Body Scrub & Masque ($145), a 50-minute indulgent experience that includes a warm, sweet cream body scrub infused with vitamin-rich cinnamon oil and a warm honey glaze to seal in moisture. The treatment finishes with a light massage with Marshmallow Melt Shea and Cocoa Butter Body Crème, featuring warm notes of vanilla and sandalwood.
Holiday-inspired treatments are available until January 3 at the Ritz-Carlton Naples, with festive options for both singles and couples.
The Mistletoe Couples Massage ($360) is a luxurious, relaxing side-by-side massage that uses the soothing scents of sandalwood, rose geranium, and frankincense oil to bring you peace, continued later by a take-away signature aromatherapy roll-on oil.
The Winter Balance Massage ($185) – inspired by ancient healing rituals – will melt away muscle tension caused by shopping sprees, and utilizes seven warm infused oil blends to put you in an energized and balanced state.
The Holiday Recovery Facial ($165 for 50 minutes, $215 for 80 minutes) combats the affect of holiday stress on skin with serums rich in antioxidants to nourish skin and boost collagen and elastin production, revealing more youthful skin.
For pampering from head to toe, try the Sparkle & Frost Manicure with Peppermint Pedicure ($135); the Peppermint Pedicure includes a soothing salt soak infused with aromatic peppermint leaves, followed by a sugar scrub blended with sweet almond to give your skin a healthy holiday glow, and the Sparkle and Frost Manicure includes a collagen hand mask that will reveal radiant skin.
