While it's important to be environmentally minded each and every day of the year, it's nice to shine a spotlight on various product companies and spas that are putting forth a particular effort to celebrate Earth Month in April. Some specials that recently caught my eye rely on Primavera, a natural and organic skincare company that has adopted a holistic and ethical approach to doing business. Throughout the month, Glen Ivy Hot Springs (Corona, CA) will be offering the Primavera Spring Renewal Facial ($105, 50 minutes) to nourish dehydrated skin. Including special eye and scalp treatments, the facial combines the calming power of organic neroli oil, organic jojoba, and willow bark extract. At Agua Serena at the Hyatt Grand Champions Resort, Villas and Spa (Indian Wells, CA), eco-conscious spa-goers can opt for the Organic Firming Facial ($130, 60 minutes), which remineralizes and oxygenates the skin with a sun-dried sea algae peel-off mask. On Earth Day, Stillwater Spa at the Hyatt Regency Newport (RI) is offering the candlelit Stillwater Spa Massage ($125). The treatment special, which is available April 22-27, utilizes organic body oils in scents such as Energizing Ginger Lime, Relaxing Lavender Vanilla, Restoring Rose Sallow Thorn, and Cleansing Juniper Cypress. It concludes with a glass of local Newport Vineyards Wine or a cup of organic Tavalon Tea with local Aquidneck Island Honey. What green ideas has Earth Month inspired in you and your spa?
