Fall Spa Week: Polish, Pamper & Protect Your Skin with Smoothing & Softening At-Home Protocols

The calm before the storm. That's what fall Spa Week feels like, as Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas fast approach. 

What better way to celebrate the start of the holiday season than with a soothing spa treatment--perhaps a hot stone massage? The service places warm and hot stones along specific meridian points directly on the body. The polished lava rocks, which are also used as massage tools during the treatment, increase circulation. Thus, many experts believe that they assist in removing energy blockages that may lead to the development of disease, illness and cancers.

During Spa Week, which begins today, the healing benefits of a hot stone massage and other services can be experienced at a discounted rate of $50. Although the offer only lasts until October 26, you can still continue the spirit of the celebration in the privacy of your own home with smoothing and softening skincare protocols.  

Take a look-see at the following products. They polish (cleanse and exfoliate), pamper (nourish) and protect (shield) your complexion to maintain healthy, glowing skin all year-round. Say "spaaah" and enjoy!
