It’s back to school, and the leaves are starting to turn, signaling the end of summer.  But while we may not miss the heat, we will miss days of beautiful sunshine and that flawless glow to our skin. Top spas in the sunshine belt, such as The Spa at PGA National Resort, Palm Beach, Florida, know how to keep that summer glow going year round. The newly transformed, 40,000 square foot spa, part of the award-winning PGA National Resort, now offers an 80-minute Facial of Champions professional treatment, designed by Repêchage, using nourishing seaweed and other botanical ingredients to deep cleanse, brighten and transform skin from head to toe, perfect for those with an active lifestyle. With the Facial of Champions treatment, layers of fresh seaweeds plump, nourish and hydrate the skin. A professional Glycolic Peel and LED therapy brighten the skin, deep cleansing and exfoliating hand treatment and foot and leg scrubs leave skin renewed, and visitors enjoy an eye treatment while hair and scalp, shoulder and neck massages are performed.

While you have to actually go to the spa to get the professional level of product performance and pampering, there are some things you can do at-home inspired by this luxury treatment to keep your skin glowing into the fall. And, maybe it’s time to start planning that mid-winter sunny getaway to Palm Beach so you can experience this one-of-a-kind treatment yourself!  

With the first steps of the professional treatment, a special mixture of Repêchage Honey and Almond Scrub is warmed and massaged into the feet and lower legs, then wrapped.
