It’s time for spring cleaning! As the earth sheds its winter coat to reveal new life, so, too, does skin need a good exfoliation spa treatment to remove last season’s dry, rough layers. Spring skin can also be more sensitive, so treat it with care. Four of the top U.S. resort spas share the best treatments from their spa menus for healthy, glowing spring skin.  Which one would you pick?

A Jewel of a Spa Treatment at Sanctuary Spa, Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa (Paradise Valley, Ariz.). “Although we may welcome the change in weather, it’s not always good for our skin, which may become sensitive,” says Danielle Morgan, spa manager for Sanctuary Spa at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa. She recommends the Sanctuary Jewel Facial to balance the skin’s natural pH level, helping it adapt to the change of season while reducing inflammation, hydrating, and slowing the signs of aging. A classic hydrating facial, Sanctuary Jewel is completely customized to the spa-goer’s skin type, making it an excellent choice for everyone and particularly ideal for those with sensitive skin.

Products used in the treatment include Carrot Seed Soothing Facial Oil, which stimulates circulation and lymphatic flow to help reduce puffiness and redness, and Lavender Protective Moisturizer SPF 17, which contains micronized zinc oxide to protect skin from UVA/UVB rays; turmeric and vitamin E to prevent sun spots; and lavender to soothe inflammation and calm the senses. Both products are available in the Spa Boutique, allowing guests to create their own spring skin care rituals at home. The 60-minute treatment is priced at $165 Monday through Thursday, and $175 Friday through Sunday. Sanctuary Spa reservations: 855-245-2051.

Spring Reveal at The Spa at Whiteface Lodge, Whiteface Lodge (Lake Placid, N.Y.). According to Mark Lumpkin, spa director at The Spa at Whiteface Lodge, “The most important thing for healthy skin in the transition from winter to spring is a good exfoliation to help remove the dry rough layers of skin from winter weather. A layer of moisture should follow the exfoliation to hydrate and nourish the skin on hands, body and face.”

Mark has singled out three services from the spa menu that are ideal for spring spa-goers. All include a choice of seasonal scents – Petal (lily of the valley, rose absolute, lemon and tonka bean) or Anjou (armoire, jasmine, geranium, basil, vanilla bean, and wild mimosa), or, alternatively, a fragrance-free product for sensitive skin:

o   ZENTS Ultimate Luxury Wrap begins with a shea butter exfoliation followed by a rich mineral wrap to replenish skin and a warm oil scalp massage. It ends with a full body massage using natural jojoba oil mixed with the guest’s scent of choice.  80 minutes; $225.

o   Adirondack Exfoliation includes a luxuriant exfoliation of salt crystals mixed with essential oils. Rich Shea Butter completes this service, replenishing and hydrating skin.  50 minutes; $155.

o   Classic Manicure ($40.00) and Pedicure Ritual ($55.00), both include an exfoliation with the option to incorporate a seasonal scent that personalizes the service to their needs.
