Indulge yourself and try these coconut-infused spa treatments.
Coconut is a frequent guest at the dining table, but few realize it’s as nourishing outside the body as inside. Its oils and alkalizing water possess natural anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties. Used on skin, it creates a topical barrier that helps to avoid infection and promote healthy, glowing skin. Your body will eat it up.
HERE ARE SEVERAL SPAS OFFERING COCONUT-INFUSED TREATMENTS:
Elemis Exotic Coconut Rub and Milk Ritual Wrap
