The Return of Seasonal Spa Trends for Fall and Winter
Like the fashion industry, the day spa industries also see a shift in trends as the season changes. Spa-goers tailor their spa treatments according to the changes in weather, their diet, their activities, and yes, even fashion.
According to the owner at Suddenly Slimmer Day Spa and Wellness Center a day spa in Phoenix, the fall and winter months compel spa-goers to seek spa treatments that bring in a lot of moisture back into their skin to prepare it for the harsh, cold and very drying weather. Spa devotees look for treatments that use herb-infused, emollient oils and creams to keep their skin supple and to maintain its elasticity.
And mind you, the hair and scalp do not go neglected as well. Spa aficionados know that our cooler, dryer months wreak havoc on the hair and scalp. Spa treatments that bring moisture back into the hair and scalp area are also sought after to achieve lustrous-looking hair free of dandruff and itchiness.
Jeanie Marcelino, the spa’s director, says that spa treatments like the Aromatherapy Massage, Body Bliss Vibrational Oil Massage, the Four-Layer Facial, Sensitive Skin Facial, Hair and Scalp Massage and Enzyme Facial all use products rich in vitamins and minerals from plants, herbs and algae extracts that are very moisturizing.
Another fall/winter spa trend they observe from their varied clientele is the demand for products with ingredients plucked from nature. With “going green” as the current fave mantra, spa-goers are showing their support for a cleaner, healthier environment by also opting for spa and skin care products that have been certified to be using organic spa ingredients. Clients, according to Marcelino, have become beauty products-savvy and have educated themselves about the benefits of using natural products.
Spa treatments like the Seaweed Body Wrap, Blue Corn Body Polish, Marine Body Peel, Lavender Harvest Facial and Organic Facial Fusion all use products derived from various natural products.
Finally, as the cooler months approach us, people often crave the Holiday spa scents and tastes that evoke memories of the holidays, of winter comfort foods, and of woodsy and minty scents. These cravings are evident when spa clients request treatments that remind them of all the good things about fall and winter. Treatments such as the
Sugar Body Scrub, and Cinnamon Spice Pedicure restore their popularity during the pre- and post-holiday months. The scents of the products are soothing and nostalgic, and leave a very warm feeling during the cold months.
