Rejuvenating Fall Spa Treatments from San Francisco’s Nob Hill Spa
As we enter autumn, also known as San Francisco’s infamous Indian Summer, the renowned Nob Hill Spa at The Scarlet Huntington has implemented several treatments inspired by the change in season. These fall specials are designed to sooth dry skin and revitalize the body. (The Spa’s Lead Esthetician Dani Lamkin also offers tips for fall skincare.)
Signature Caviar Facial: A decadent facial that firms, tones, refines and deeply hydrates the skin with protein-rich Caviar and powerful antioxidants. Exclusive Caviar products by Kerstin Florian infuse skin with age-defying nutrients to smooth fine lines and improve texture. An AcuLift Massage visibly firms and tones while the Marine Biomatrix Sheet provides intensive hydration to instantly restore radiance. Plus, through September, enjoy a glass of bubbly and 20% the treatment! $285, 90 minutes.
Soothing Chamomile Body Scrub: Chamomile is an excellent calming agent and at the core of this invigorating body treatment. A gentle scrub with a creamy base of Chamomile Flower Oil and finely ground French pumice grains sweep away dull surface cells and stimulate circulation. A soothing application of chamomile lotion infused with Siberian Fir Oil will leave the body feeling soft and relaxed. $140, 50 minutes.
- Autumn Spice Pedicure: Featuring the aromas of cinnamon, cloves, ginger & cardamom, made with botanical oils and pumpkin seeds, this pedicure makes for a luxurious, moisturizing treat. Guests are invited to relax and enjoy the treatment while sipping a cup of Pumpkin Spice tea to complement the experience. $80, 50 minutes. Available through end of January.
Spa Tips from Lead Esthetician Dani Lamkin:
One way to keep dryness at bay is by switching to a nourishing cleansing oil or balm. Oil cleansers give a fantastic deep clean, and ensure that our skin keeps from feeling dry and stripped the way some gel cleansers can leave it. Two of our favorites at Nob Hill Spa are Babor’s Hy Ol cleanser and Darphin’s Aromatic Cleansing Balm.
Fall is also the perfect time to boost our hydration by adding serums under our moisturizers, morning and night. We love Babor’s Algae Fluid ampoules to re-mineralize and plump up the skin. Follow with your favorite moisturizer and feel the difference.
