It doesn’t matter if it’s five o’clock or not because it’s always happy hour when you’re at the spa. In recognition of St. Patrick’s Day many spas are incorporating alcohol into their treatment menus. It might sound odd but wine, beer and whiskey all have therapeutic benefits for your skin. These treatments will help you relieve stress, the No. 1 reason that people go to the spa worldwide, and have you coming back for another round in no time.
“Spas with local vineyards or nearby distilleries are taking advantage of what’s around them to create memorable experiences for their guests,” said International SPA Association President Lynne McNees. “Many people might not equate the spa with alcohol, but 23 percent of spas are incorporating local or indigenous elements into their treatment menu. Going to the spa is all about customizing your experience to meet your needs, and for some that includes a glass of wine.”
