The Beauty of El Paseo

Palm Springs Life Archives

The next time you’re on El Paseo, treat yourself to a day of indulgence. Slip into a day spa or take a seat at a cosmetic counter. Sample a new fragrance to boost your inner and outer beauty.

Visit The Gardens on El Paseo (between Larkspur Lane and San Pablo Avenue) and discover a peaceful place with well-positioned water features, lush landscaping, and engaging public art. Explore beauty emporiums, such as Aveda, Bare Escentuals, L’Occitane, Origins, and Sephora. Renew your skin with products and cosmetics that promote radiance and a riveting fresh look.

At Saks Fifth Avenue, the cosmetic hub buzzes with new and tried-and-true lines. If you enjoy dabbling in different scents, Saks offers a bouquet of fragrances for men and women.

Seasoned Burberry fans go right to the source at the Burberry boutique in The Shops on El Paseo (73061-73130 El Paseo), which also houses Gucci and Ralph Lauren (perfect for brand-loyal patrons) and the coveted Cos Bar with everything under one roof to help you look, smell, and feel fabulous.

If intimate attention appeals to you, many skin-care centers along the avenue offer an impressive menu of options, from facials to peels and more. Walk the street and you’ll find one with the right vibe for you.

For more permanent enhancement, El Paseo presents the crème de la crème of cosmetic surgery centers, including Renaissance Cosmetic Surgery Center & Medical Spa (73180 El Paseo), where Dr. W. Ray Henderson and staff perform intricate surgical procedures with ease.

Top off the new you with hair, nails, and rejuvenating bodywork. Elegant and innovative spas and salons abound along the avenue, some offering a smorgasbord of corporeal delights and services, including pedicures, manicures, massages, wraps, hair removal, eye lifts, eyebrow sculpting, and much more.
