December is a time of celebration, though sometimes it brings a bit too much indulging. Ginger is the perfect antidote for too many sweets or cocktails. It’s also a star in the spa as it fights free radicals, clears blemishes, and treats scars. At Hyatt Aruba’s Zoia Spa, guests can enjoy the spirit of the holiday season and the benefits of ginger in special December treatments. The Gingerbread Mani-cure and Mistle-toes ($95, 75 minutes)bakes up something good with a sumptuous sugar polish exfoliation to revive the dry winter skin followed by a warm hydrating wrap. It concludes with a warm, spicy ginger hand and foot massage. For an immersive experience, guests can book a massage with warm ginger oil ($145, 60 minutes)or the sweet peppermint and chocolate body exfoliation ($145, 60 minutes).
