Fall is here and you’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t love this season. The transition from heat and humidity to cool and crisp weather is a welcome change and draws many of us outdoors to bask in the season’s full autumn splendor. However, that change can wreak havoc on our skin.

Luckily, Westglow has introduced some new fall services that promise to save us from the season’s drying and irritating effects. As an added bonus, they’re all pumpkin themed! Pumpkin is an up-and-coming skincare ingredient as it is rich in enzymes that help dissolve dry skin cells. Obviously, there is no ingredient more seasonally appropriate.

Our Pumpkin Spice Pedicure is an assured way to rescue anyone who may suffer from dry or cracked feet. First, a pumpkin fizzy bomb foot bath softens and moisturizes feet, while the following hydrating sugar scrubs helps nourish healthy skin and scrub away dry skin cells. Finally, pumpkin soufflé body butter gives skin a protecting and hydrating boost.

The Pumpkin Exfoliating Peel is a softening treatment that eliminates impurities by removing dead skin cells. Combining pure whipped pumpkin, pineapple extract, honey, and green tea, this treatment is the last word in seasonal and nourishing skincare.

Finally, our Pumpkin Collagen Mask is a fall twist on a classic mask. Our collagen treatments have become a staple at Westglow and this pumpkin addition is a fun bonus for anyone looking to get their autumn fix! The mask is high in antioxidants and nutrients that are perfect for all skin types.

We hope we’ll see you enjoying everything the season has to offer at Westglow soon! Click here to learn more.

Westglow’s Guide to Preparing for Fall

Westglow Resort & Spa - Alistair Burke (2)

We’ve noticed a morning chill in the air and leaves are slowly starting to change their hues. While days still climb to balmy highs and those of us living off the mountain are dwelling in sweltering heat, the calendar and nighttime lows do not lie. Fall is coming.
Many of us thrive in sweater weather and pumpkin season. It’s hard not to love such a brilliant array of colors, sunshine, and fun loving activities. However, before you jump into tailgating, apple orchards, and harvesting take some time for a seasonal wellbeing checklist.

1. Win the Battle Against Allergies: Detoxification Body Wrap and Lymphatic Stimulation Massage
Seasonal allergies can easily spoil what would otherwise be a perfect time of year. Few things ruin a hay ride or trip to a county fair faster than constant sneezing and congestion. Westglow’s Detoxification Body Wrap and Lymphatic Stimulation Massage is a natural and relaxing way to help boost the immune system and rid the body of toxins, which in turn will help ease the burden of fall allergies.

2. Nourish Your Skin with a Hydrating Moisturizer
Fall brings crisp air, less humidity, and stronger breezes. While the weather trend is popular for many people, it can be drying and harsh for our skin. We suggest trading your summertime moisturizer for a richer, fall option. Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream Light is a great moisturizing, protecting, and transitional product for the months between summer and winter. It’s readily available in our retail shop and used in many of our facial services as a calming and hydrating moisturizer.

3. Enjoy the Sunshine While it Lasts
Daylight Savings Time ends in almost two months. Leading up to November 6th there are weeks of sunshine and abundant fall foliage. We encourage our guests to make the most of the changing seasons by beginning each day of their visit with our guided hikes. The days are getting shorter and sunshine cannot be underrated as a tool to help improve our moods and emotional outlook, so make the most of sun-filled days while they’re still around.
