In fact, six of the seven body treatments featured on the spa's menu are specifi cally aimed at exfoliating. "Our clients' skin endures a lot living in Colorado, where the air is so dry and everyone is often outside," says spa director Melissa Rackliff . "This little bit of self-care can make all the diff erence, especially come spring when we start to show a bit more skin." She says the spa's Sugar Scrub (50 min./$115), which features the Éminence product line, is a staff and client fave. "It's customized to fi t each guest's needs—from hydrating coconut and healing blueberry, to antioxidant pear and green apple," explains Rackliff , adding that the treatment is topped off with a moisturizer to recharge patrons' skin. To spread the word on its skin-sloughing menu, TallGrass gets everyone on the team involved. "Our Guest Relations (GR) team off ers these services to clients when scheduling appointments," says Rackliff . "The GR gals have a bit of a competitive streak too! Contests to see who can encourage the most bookings are always fun—as long as the recommendations remain in the guests' best interests." Stowefl ake Mountain Resort & Spa Stowe, Vermont Nothing is more authentic or classic to Vermont than the area's maple leaves. "A favorite among locals, our Vermont Maple Sugar Body Polish (80 min./$190) uses fresh ingredients made by our partners at Lunaroma Aromatic Apothecary in nearby Burlington," says spa director Surinda Oberai Cavanagh. "It includes maple syrup, raw honey and sugar, which is less drying than some salt-based scrubs. We end the polish with a body butter massage, providing the perfect antidote for the harsh, icy weather, as well as unsettled bodies and minds." Spring proves to be the ideal season to promote the signature service as it aligns with maple season and the state's renowned Maple Festival, which takes place annually at the end of April. "We remind clients that spring is also the perfect time to rehydrate and rejuvenate their bodies," adds Oberai Cavanagh. DuBunné Spa Club & Massage Centre Torrance, California Despite its add-on status, DuBunné's Back Scrub Enhancement (10 min./$15) is far from a second-fi ddle treatment, says spa director Jessica Palmer. "It allows the body oils to fully absorb and hydrate the skin, so you get a better glow," she explains, adding that the formula uses gentle, non-aggressive microbeads. Staff members like to throw in the enhancement as a complimentary service during the holidays to help make the season merry and bright for their clients. And once these guests are hooked on the feeling, "We recommend purchasing the product for at-home use once or twice a week for upkeep," says Palmer. "If a client is using any sort of oil or lotion at home, then this is an important step in their regimen." © GETTY IMAGES "If a client is using any sort of oil or lotion at home, then exfoliation is an important step in their regimen."
