With its three fall seasonal treatments, Wintergreen Resort and its Wintergreen Spa are offering treatments to rejuvenate sun-dried summer skin and prep it for winter. Available through November, spa-goers can choose from the Pumpkin Chai Pampering, Autumn Harvest Facial and Wrap, and Harvest Manicure.
Wintergreen Resort (www.wintergreenresort.com), which sits atop the Blue Ridge Mountains in Central Virginia, is one of the East Coast’s more popular destinations for families and outdoors enthusiasts. The resort features two golf courses, 19 clay court tennis courts, three indoor tennis courts and five dining venues.
Here’s a closer look at the Wintergreen Spa’s autumn offerings designed to recharge and refresh:
• Pumpkin Chai Pampering. This 50-minute sugar scrub treatment uses all natural Woodsprite products to replenish and exfoliate skin. The scrub is followed by a Vichy shower to rinse away stress, which leaves the body primed for the hydrating application of pumpkin chai oil and lotion. Warm stones are then placed on the back to increase circulation and ease muscle aches. Rates: $115 weekends/$105 midweek.
• Autumn Harvest Facial and Wrap. With Eminence Yam, Pumpkin Enzyme Peel and Pumpkin Latte Hydration Masque as the main ingredients, this treatment has a genuine “fall” feel to it. It begins with a nourishing 25-minute facial that uses the yam and pumpkin enzyme peel, and is combined with a 25-minute hydrating full-body oil wrap that provides a protective barrier to prepare skin for the cold months ahead. Rates: $120 weekends/$110 midweek.
• Harvest Manicure. This UV Gel Signature Manicure, lasting a heavenly 80 minutes, incorporates hand exfoliation treatment with nourishing and aromatic apple and cinnamon oils. A relaxing hand and arm massage is accompanied by local apple cider to sip. An added bonus, there is no drying time after application and it can last up to 14 days without chipping. Rates: $70 weekend/$65 midweek.
