Stimulate the Senses

The Diamante/Diamond Facial at The Well Spa at Miramonte Resort & Spa.

The Well Spa at Miramonte Resort & Spa

Pass up Grandma’s fudge and let Agua Serena Spa’s estheticians envelop you in a Chocolate Truffle body scrub and massage with Body Deli products created in the Coachella Valley. Raw cacao nibs, cocoa, and premium raw chocolate  yield a rich, dark confection that leaves your skin sweetly irresistible.

The Arcona deep-cleansing facial treatment uses chocolate truffle aroma mist to further boost the powerful antioxidant catechins found in cocoa, and includes a hand and arm massage with chocolate truffle body lotion, leaving your skin hydrated and glowing.

Add on a spa mani/pedi and chocolate foot soak for a full-on splurge. Agua Serena Spa at Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa, 44600 Indian Wells Ln., Indian Wells. 760-674-4100;

Amp Up the Glamour
The Peppermint Sensation Winter Facial at Wink Lash & Beauty Bar incorporates warm, peppermint-infused towels to perk up faces stressed from the rigors of shopping. A neck, shoulder and foot massage, and a moisturizing steam and foot wrap will perk you up before going to the lash bar for fluttery Winter Wonder Lashes with rhinestones or pearls — flickering bits of glitz suitable for any dressy event.

Add on Wink’s Glamour Puss makeup session for a look that’s “you — only better.” Wink Lash & Beauty Bar, 73375 El Paseo, Ste. D, Palm Desert. 760-340-5274;

Hot Toddy for the Body
The Hot Toddy for the Body at The Well Spa at Miramonte Resort & Spa softens every rough, tough edge with a rich bourbon and brown sugar blend that gives smooth a new dimension. A serving of peppery caramel body lotion silkens every inch and gets you ready for thigh-high holiday minis.

The Well’s luxurious Diamante/Diamond Facial begins with a balancing ritual using stones placed on the seven chakra points to relax and harmonize the body. Trace elements of diamonds, hematite, and smithsonite make your skin shine like a fine gem.

Add on the Opal Eye Treatment — a powerful infusion of antioxidants from arctic berries — to freshen peepers that have seen their share of late-night celebrations. The Well Spa at Miramonte Resort & Spa, 45000 Indian Wells Ln., Indian Wells. 760-341-2200;

Now That You’re Gorgeous …
Take your rejuvenated, moisturized, and made-up self over to Shear Hair Design on Nov. 12 and celebrate their 35th anniversary with champagne and hors d’oeuvres catered by Mastro’s Steakhouse. Enjoy beauty consultations, special gifts and the debut of the salon’s newest skin care line, Le Mieux.

A portion of the evening’s proceeds benefit Living Free Animal Sanctuary. RSVP to 760-340-1377. Shear Hair Design El Paseo, 73896 El Paseo, Palm Desert.
