Summer is Here

We have combined two summer fruits to create three unique treatments at The Spa at Fearrington to begin our summer season. Cucumber Melon Body Exfoliation, Manicure and Pedicure are the perfect way to get your skin ready for the heat of the summer. Let’s take a look at each of these ingredients to see what wonderful benefits they will do for your skin to get you beach ready.

Cucumbers have been consumed in healthy eating regimens and used in beauty products for decades. Over the years, cucumbers have been used for a variety of purposes due to their many benefits, but it is their high water content that makes them great for use in spas. Their hydrating, cooling, and soothing attributes are beneficial for problem skin. The caffeic acid that is naturally found in cucumbers helps to reduce puffiness and water retention in the skin. Cucumber works well as a cooling and revitalizing agent, and is especially effective for sun-damaged skin.

Rich in antioxidants and high in skin-friendly nutrients, melons also have significant beauty benefits. Most melons are more than 90 percent water. Eating them can help with hydration, but so can applying them directly to the skin as a calming, moisture-rich treatment. Melons contain lycopene and vitamins A and C, all of which help your body fight the free radicals that cause cell damage and, ultimately, the signs of aging.

The mixture of cucumber and melon will deliver the cooling effect on tender skin and you can feel the heat around your body being drawn out, leaving the skin cool, soft and moist. The Spa at Fearrington is offering for the summer months of July-September the following treatments to help you prepare for the summer heat. We are offering a Cucumber Melon Manicure (30 minutes), Pedicure (45 minutes) and body exfoliation (either 60 or 90 minutes). Combine all three for a day of summer pampering and receive a 10% discount on your spa treatments.
