Being in love is said to impart a special glow to the face and sparkle to the eyes, and the desert’s spas are expert at amping up (or mimicking) that radiance with a bevy of facials, scrubs, massages, and other lovely treats this month.
Spa Esmeralda at Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa has specials aimed at getting you Instagram-ready, including the Red Carpet Facial featuring a micro-current mini face-lift and the NuBody Targeted Toning treatment for arms, abs, or thighs. Both 50-minute treatments are said to show immediate improvement in skin tone, and texture. Each is $159 (regular $175) during February and March.

Monday through Friday all month, spa-goers will receive 10 percent off any spa service and 10 percent off a meal at all the hotel’s dining spots.
Azure Spa at Riviera Palm Springs warms up couples with the Ginger Renewal Experience — a full body exfoliation followed with a back, neck, and shoulder massage with ginger oil and warm stones. The final touch is a cozy wrap and a forehead, ear, and pressure point scalp massage. The 90-minute treat is $149 a person (regular $210). Add a 25-minute Serenity Soak for Two for $50 (regular $75).
