With the healing effects of natural ingredients, an increasing number of spas are incorporating food and beverage components into their treatments. From apples and caviar to chocolate and champagne, these nine natural spa treatments create relaxation and bliss and also sound good enough to eat.
Apples and Caviar: The plant stem cells derived from apple trees, caviar and Retinol are used in Key West at Casa Marina and The Reach’s Spa al Mare. The anti-aging Eyes, Lip and Feet Treatment stimulates cell turn-over, smooths wrinkles and diminishes puffiness and dark circles under the eyes.
Chocolate and Champagne:Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and 1,100 acres of tropical rainforest, Sibö Spa at Los Sueños Ocean & Golf Resort incorporates the antioxidant properties of cocoa, champagne grapes and orange essential oils into this facial to firm skin, hydrate and restore balance.
Papaya and Pineapple: The AWAY Spa at W Retreat & Spa – Vieques Island combines papaya, pineapple and finely crushed grape seed to create a scrub rich in Vitamin A and Alpha-Hydroxy Acids, which naturally break down inactive proteins in the skin to improve elasticity and reveal a healthy, radiant glow.
