Get Ready for Summer with SpaTerre at Ocean Key

Head to Toe Tips and Trends for Teeny Bikini Season

Key West, Fla. (February 22, 2010) – Swimsuit season is upon us and Ocean Key Resort’s Spa Manager SpaTerre has tips for getting into tip top shape. Spa Manager Stephanie Blacksmith has these secrets to share:

Paprika Facials are the latest and greatest way to turn up the heat to reveal hydrated and glowing skin. Our naturally organic facials use paprika to stimulate and bring blood vessels to the surface; the result is smooth skin that is toned and glowing. Available at SpaTerre for XX (it’s not on the spa services page?).

Winter weather tends to dry even the most hydrated skin; another suggestion is to have a glycolic peel. Removing up to 12 layers of dead skin cells per treatment, skin is exposed in better condition looking youthful and radiant. SpaTerre offers these treatments ala carte or for better results set up a series to achieve maximum benefits and results.

We prescribe a Coconut Sugar Body Polish as the quickest way to prep winter bodies for a day at the beach or pool. The experience offers a full body exfoliation with pure cane sugar combined with a choice of fragranced coconut oil. The result is dewy moisturized skin.

Summer is also time to pay attention to the most neglected part of the body -- the fanny. Ocean Key Resort’s SpaTerre just recently introduced Fanny Facials; designed to “kick your rear end into high gear.” The skin is prepped by cleansing, exfoliating, applying masks and serums, and finished with cleaning up any unsightly hairs that may be lingering. This experience is guaranteed to get even the teeniest of bikini lovers read for the beach in no time.

To complete the beach body transformation from winter to summer, we suggest the 100% organic Aussie Airbrush Tan. The most natural looking airbrush tan we’ve ever seen, this treatment is safer than baking in the sun and lasts the same amount of time (5-7 days).

Sandal season is upon us! Our most enjoyed experience is the Key Lime Margarita Pedicure. This treatment was designed with summer in mind. We include a coconut sugar exfoliation, hot towel body butter masque, and a paraffin dip, which will leave your feet poolside ready, top your toes off with one of our new summer polishes sure to be the bow on top of the prettiest package. Best of all, a Key Lime margarita is served during the experience!

Some of the hottest nail colors for 2010 will be:

  • Putty’s (a neutral brown-grey) * Flattering on all skin tones
  • Fluorescents (think 80’s neon) Pink and Orange * Looks best on tan skin/li>
  • Metallic (gold, silver, gunmetal) * Universally flattering/li>
  • Tropical Hues (think the water in the Caribbean, blues and greens) * Great for any age looking to have fun!/li>
  • Ever Classic French (very beach club chic) * Universally flattering for all ages and skin tones /li>
