Spring is a time for metamorphosis and an opportunity to heal skin fatigued by winter. In this spirit, The Umstead Hotel and Spa (Cary, NC) has introduced three results-driven treatments that will help guests step into the season refreshed. They are complemented by The Umstead Spa’s intimate surrounds, which invite spa-goers to explore and embrace their connection with nature.
The skin-firming Valmont Facial ($245, 75 minutes) uses a 100 percent collagen mask, likened to a biological face-lift. Its combination of active ingredients helps to reactivate the skin's deficient natural functions. From the very first application, the appearance of the upper layers of the skin is visibly improved, with lasting results. Skin instantly restores its natural resilience, suppleness and radiance.
Those looking to address uneven skin tone and skin discoloration will be drawn to the relaxing Jurlique Brightening Vitamin C Facial ($170, 75 minutes). Concentrated ingredients such as VitaBrightKX (a super-fruit complex featuring Kakadu plum extract, the world’s richest fruit source of vitamin C) help to both brighten and balance skin tone.
During the Decleor Red Island Ritual Body Treatment ($175, 75 minutes), guests are treated to a complete sensorial journey that begins with a body exfoliation using orange and apricot fruit seeds, essential oils, and spices. A soothing massage follows with warm exotic oils and a unique-to-Decleor acai wood massager, allowing the therapist to focus on areas of tension and stress to restore vitality.
