A Guide to Stones, Oils, Clays and More
During your treatment at the spa, Serenity’s expert estheticians and massage therapists will use a variety of products to enhance your experience. From serums and lotions that moisturize your skin, to exfoliating scrubs that brush away dryness — there’s a lot that goes into the perfect spa treatment.
See below for more information about the stones, oils, clays and more used at your favorite Sandestin spa.
Oils provide many benefits. They’re used to moisturize skin and reduce friction during massage treatments, and also produce scents that relax the body and mind. At Serenity, spa treatments include the use of high-quality oils that leave your skin feeling moisturized and refreshed without a greasy, heavy feeling. One of our favorite oil-inclusive treatments is the Ocean Wave Massage — which uses a blend of mineral-rich seawater and seaside plant oils to rebalance, hydrate and regenerate your skin. We also love the warm oils used on our scalp massages, and the tropical oils and butters used to hydrate the skin during The Serenity Ritual treatment.
Heated stones are also used in a variety of massage and body treatments. Stones provide direct heat to the body, helping to quickly melt away tension, ease any muscle stiffness you’re experiencing and increase circulation. If you’re interested in a treatment that uses the power of hot stones, try our AromaStone Massage or our Healing Hot Stone Therapy, where our therapists place warm, smooth basalt stones over your entire body to relieve aches and pains and soothe overworked muscles. Try our Four Diamond Spa Package if you’d like to pair an AromaStone Massage with additional treatments.
CLAYS AND MORE
Many of our spa treatments use additional products like clays and minerals. Clays are particularly powerful when used for a facial or body mask. In our Botanical Clay Body Mask treatment, spa-goers are treated to a dry-brush exfoliation followed by a botanical clay application. The clay draws out toxins from the skin and tightens pores — leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Minerals, salt and sugar crystals on the other hand are great for exfoliation. In our Replenishing Body Polish treatment, a silky exfoliate containing sea-water crystals is applied to the skin. The sea-derived crystals help remove any dead skin cells, giving your body a beautiful glow.
