1. Get rid of bronzers, warm the face with natural colors on cheeks instead.
2. Pick ONE area on the face and go bold! Try bold smoky eyes with soft lips, or bold bright lips with natural eyes.
3. Color liners are here to stay—try a purple or charcoal color this fall.
After months in the sun all summer, your skin needs extra attention and care—especially when it comes to hydration. We've picked these three treatments, from our extensive menu of services in the Life in Balance Spa, because they were each designed to exfoliate the skin and lock in moisture to give you a gorgeous glow for your entire body. Enjoy!
Hydrating Body Peel
A Clarins Miraval Creation
An indulgent exfoliating treatment using botanical-based glycolic and salicylic acids that rids skin of impurities, while smoothing and softening the skin. Your therapist will apply an active exfoliating lotion to your body using a warm mitt; as it soaks in, it penetrates to your skin’s deepest level, removing dull surface skin cells to reveal the youthful skin beneath. Your rejuvenated skin is then treated to a full-body massage with an anti-aging balm rich in anti-oxidants. While lightly wrapped your therapist will stimulate your scalp with an invigorating massage, then focus on your feet, thereby concluding the treatment. You’ll feel renewed and refreshed from head to toe.

Although summer is on its way out and we may be showing less skin, it is just as important to take care of your skin as we enter into fall. I’ve put together an easy DIY skin care ritual with products from Miraval’s Life in Balance Spa. Adding this body ritual into your weekly skin care regimen will keep your skin looking great all the way through the summer and into the fall.
1. Start with a dry body brush
This is safe to use lightly every day to increase blood flow, circulation, and help exfoliate. I usually stand in the shower and brush up towards the heart, using it on the entire body.
The warm water releases soothing aromas and the lather is lightweight and gentle enough for the most sensitive skin.
This Friday, April 12th and Saturday, April 13th, Miraval will be hosting a skin care representative from Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ from 2-7pm in our Life in Balance Spa. With over 12 years of clinical aesthetic experience, Toni Lind will answer any skin-related questions you may have. Sessions include a private consultation, education on the latest treatments that deliver immediate clinical results, and a mini facial customized to your skin's needs.
For those not at Miraval this weekend, we asked Dr. Dennis Gross to give us some quick tips on how to best protect your skin for the warm summer weather. Enjoy!
