From the holiday table to the treatment table

‘Tis the season to indulge … in pumpkins and hot toddys! The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore is introducing seasonal, pumpkin and booze-infused treatments with big beauty benefits to keep guests glowing through the winter months. 

The new festive line of spa services from FarmHouse Fresh include moisture-rich hand creams, body lotions and other skin care products made with 88 to 99.6 percent natural ingredients. Free of parabens and sulfates, many of the Texas-made products are vegan and gluten-free as well.

Pretty Pumpkins

More than just a culinary specialty and Thanksgiving decoration, pumpkins offer numerous benefits for the skin including alpha-hydroxy acids that help exfoliate, and vitamins A, C, and beta carotene, all antioxidants that help protect skin from damage. Spa-goers can now reap the beauty benefits of this iconic symbol of fall with the Baltimore day spa’s new Pore-fection Pumpkin Facial and Pumpkin Pie Mani/Pedi, available through November and December 2012.

Pore Perfection Pumpkin Facial


Steamed milk clears the way for a whipped shea sugar micro polish that soothes and delivers a healthy glow, then a spicy, thick organic pumpkin purée full of nutrient-rich mud tingles as it increases oxygenation and circulation, digging deep into congested pores. Sweet agave nectar and milk then plump renewed skin, leaving a calmed, refined complexion with seemingly tiny pores.

Pumpkin Pie Manicure or Pedicure

Relax while hands or feet soak in FarmHouse Fresh’s softening Nectar Bath with pure whole milk. Next, a brown-sugar pecan-whiskey scrub is rubbed into every needy corner during a vigorous exfoliation then the hands or feet are rinsed clean. A warm organic pumpkin purée mask packed with nutrient-rich muds and yogurt is then applied, and warm towels help it soak deep into the skin as it tingles and gets the blood flowing. The pumpkin pie mani or pedi finishes with a silky-soft honeysuckle orange-cream massage.

The Beauty of Bourbon

Booze that can be used on the body? Yes please! As temperatures drop outside, stay warm on the inside with the best spa in Baltimore’s new boozy body treatment: Hot Toddy for the Body. The classic winter warmer turned luxurious spa treatment features rich Kentucky bourbon, which is loaded with sugars, minerals and vitamin B6, offering first-rate hydrating and anti-inflammatory properties. Cheers!

Hot Toddy for the Body

Get limbered up with a comfortably steaming hot towel hydration treatment infused with Farmhouse Fresh’s whole milk soak. Every rough and tough edge will be softened and smoothed with a rich bourbon and brown sugar exfoliating blend, and your decadent treatment ends with a dollop of peppery caramel body-milk lotion rubbed into the skin to leave it feeling irresistibly silky.
