TOP: COURTESY MOLLY CULVER; BOTTOM: © GETTY IMAGES The Perfect Body Lift (60 min./$155) Hiatus Spa + Retreat, multiple locations in Texas STEPS: This relaxing treatment employs a combination of hot and cold stone therapy and powerful peptides to tighten, tone and brighten the skin. "Age, environmental stressors and hormone levels change the amount of peptides in our bodies, which are essential for proper cell function," explains spa manager Mason Hickman. The service begins with dry exfoliation, then a caff eine- and antioxidant-infused balm is rubbed into the mid-thighs and glutes using hot stones in upward motions. Next, the HydroPeptide Perfecting Body Lift is applied to reposition and lift target areas. The therapist then wraps the client in a steam towel and performs a shoulder, neck and scalp massage. After 15 minutes the towel is removed, and the thighs and face are massaged with cold stones to restore tone and tighten skin. A fi rming moisturizer concludes the treatment. POWERHOUSE PERFORMERS: The HydroPeptide Perfecting Body Lift is formulated with antiaging and antioxidant peptides to enhance elasticity and increase fi rmness; kale that diminishes the look of spider veins; and skin-brightening camapu. The brand's Firming Moisturizer utilizes eight peptides and caff eine to aid circulation, as well as a blend of shea and cocoa butters, bearberry and vitamins A, C, D and E to hydrate and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. PRO TIP: Experiment with temperature. "When the skin is exposed to sudden variations in temperature, the vascular system delivers blood to the area, causing the surrounding tissues to contract and become fi rm," reveals Hickman. "In addition to delivering a cosmetic improvement to target areas, hot and cold stones aid in the skin's absorption of the products."

The service begins with a few inhalations of a balancing aromatherapy mist, and then Jurlique Chamomile- Rose Hydrating Essence is sprayed onto the body. Next, the therapist performs a dry brushing to stimulate circulation and remove dead skin cells, and applies Jurlique Body Exfoliating Gel. "It starts out like a traditional gel, and dries to a powder fi nish," explains spa manager Jo Ann Hyde. After the exfoliation, any remaining product is removed using a warm towel infused with chamomile and rose, and the treatment concludes with a soothing massage using rose oil. POWERHOUSE PERFORMERS: The rose extract found in Jurlique Chamomile-Rose Hydrating Essence and Jurlique Rose Body Oil softens, balances and quenches thirsty skin, while the Exfoliating Gel's avocado and macadamia nut oils improve skin's overall tone and texture. PRO TIP: Nourish and hydrate. Hyde emphasizes that this luxe treatment is designed to infuse rich moisture into the skin. "Clients love the warm oil at the end—it leaves them feeling relaxed and totally pampered!" she enthuses. 5 Ce ulite 5 A n aging 5 H y dra on
