Seasonal Treatments are Back!

Our quarterly seasonal treatments are back in The Spa at Fearrington! Each treatment will help to enrich your skin with each season. To start off with the winter season, we will offer our Cranberry, Pomegranate and Green Tea Body Exfoliation for either 60 or 90 minutes. This will include a relaxing massage as well. We will also offer our seasonal product to a manicure and/or pedicure to help kick off a new season of  smooth, healthy hands and feet.  Finish your day with a 60 minute Green Tea Facial which will give a nutritional boost to stressed skin. This is clinically proven to leave your skin plumper, radiant and hydrated.

The Cranberry, Pomegranate and Green Tea contains the right antioxidants to add to your skin care routine and can have a positive effect on your skin. Let’s take a look at each healing ingredient.

Antioxidants are nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and enzymes (proteins inside your body) that protect your skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells and induce signs of aging. From calming inflamed skin to tightening and toning, antioxidants offer great benefits from natural sources.

As antioxidants block the effects of free radicals, they end up being oxidized. If you’ve seen a peeled apple turn brown, you’ve seen oxidation in action. This is why it’s important to constantly replenish your supply of antioxidants.

Our winter seasonal treatments can help kick start a proper skin care routine jammed packed with antioxidants of cranberry, pomegranate and green tea. Each ingredient provides properties that are beneficial to your skin care needs. All three combined offer a powerful regiment for your skin care routine. Let’s take a look at each ingredient.

Cranberry is a source of phytochemicals known as condensed tannins. These berries are a powerful antioxidant and natural antiseptic with an anti-inflammatory effect. Cranberries are rich in Vitamin C and believed to contain excellent infection fighting properties. Its medicinal properties have been recognized since Native Americans used raw cranberries to dress wounds. It regenerates, moisturizes and brightens the skin.

Pomegranate helps the skin defend itself from free radicals, which cause premature aging. It supports and maintains immune, reproductive, circulatory, digestive, metabolic, and skin health. It has the ability to soothe, protect and moisturize dry, cracked and irritated skin. It contains a host of powerful antioxidant, which is responsible for brightening the skin tone.

Green tea compounds have significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, with studies suggesting green tea extracts can help prevent ultraviolet radiation damage. It is one of the strongest anti-oxidants and it also has anti-cellulite benefits. Green tea promotes collagen formation, an important component for keeping the skin firm and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Come visit us at the Spa at Fearrington to experience one or all four of our Cranberry, Pomegranate and Green Tea seasonal treatments. Start with a soothing cup of green tea before you begin a Seasonal Body Exfoliation, Green Tea Facial then follow this with a Seasonal Manicure and Pedicure.

Book three or all of the seasonal treatments today and receive 10% off your spa treatments. Take time out for yourself by starting a new regiment for your skin. Treatments available through the end of March.

Looking Back at the Billecart-Salmon Wine Dinner

This dinner was one of our favorite events of 2018. Beverage Director Paula DePano recalls the evening course by course and sip by sip. Enjoy! I have to admit that when the Triangle got hit by a snowstorm on the weekend before the Billecart-Salmon wine dinner, I was convinced that the event was cursed. The wine dinner was initially scheduled to happen on the 13th of September but had to be...

In the US, we have specific labeling requirements for what one can call cashmere. The diameter of the fibers must fall within a certain size range and must make up a specific percentage of the overall...
