Fall is the time to exfoliate and rehydrate, says owner Victoria DeSilver. She recommends a series of four Arctic Berry Illuminating Facials at three-week intervals with a take-home regimen kit for weeks in between. ($100 for 30 minutes; $145 for an hour) Summer’s heat, chlorine, humidity, sand and saltwater have probably taken their toll on your hair, skin and nails. Not to worry. Beach salons are adept at coping with too much sun and sea. Here are a few solutions from six coastal salons and spas that will help you prepare for the cooler weather ahead.
She also suggests rejuvenating body treatments. “You must exfoliate the dead, dry layers of your skin before trying to moisturize to allow products to better penetrate your face and body,” she says.
With seven treatment rooms, three manicure stations and three pedicure “thrones”—as well as client showers—the spa, which opened in 2001, offers everything but hair services. Spa members can use the pool, Jacuzzi, steam and sauna on Avenue Inn Hotel’s third floor.
Fall tip: Continue wearing sunscreen and apply every two hours when you’re in the sun—even in fall. “We recommend natural, organic sunscreens that do not contain harmful ingredients,” DeSilver says.
