DIY Spa Treatments

How to get luxurious hair and skin at home

Men, you too can DIY your way to clear skin.

When searching for a quick pick-me-up, look no further than your own cabinets and shelves. Do-it-yourself spa treatments are an excellent way to maintain proper health and wellness. Use these products to maximize the benefits of your at-home care.

Mind Your Own Beeswax
Honey-Infused Spa Regimens

Bees have a secret you should learn. That secret is honey. Whether in the form of royal jelly, propolis, or the sweet, golden nectar that drips from the hive, apian spa treatments hydrate, nourish, preserve, and protect. Feed your skin with the best honey-related remedies in the Greater Palm Springs area.

Revitalizzante at Miramonte Resort & Spa restores the child-like clarity and downiness of your skin by combating toxins and premature aging with royal jelly. This substance is a derivative of honey that sustains the queen bee within the hive. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties will amaze you. 45000 Indian Wells Ln., Indian Wells. 760-341-2200;

Pamper your body at The Spa at Andreas Hotel and Spa. The Desert Botanical Body Wrap is high in antioxidants and utilizes propolis — a honey-based sealant used to nourish and protect the hive. Propolis is jam-packed with cleansing properties and amino acids. 227 N. Indian Canyon Dr., Palm Springs. 760-327-5701;

The Milk and Honey Wrap at SpaTerre in Riviera Palm Springs is a wellspring of hydration and anti-aging properties. Use this treatment to slough off dead skin cells while replenishing the body with alpha hydroxy acids.  Riviera Palm Springs, 1600 N. Indian Canyon Dr. Palm Springs. 760-327-8311;
