raw food isn’t just for eating
Raw food does the body good. At least, that’s the thinking behind some of the best selling spa treatments on the market today. Does rubbing your body in avocado, orange oil or limes produce soft skin and a fresh outlook? We’ll let you be the judge. Here are some of the best ways to get raw in the spa:
At Biras Creek’s Spa by the Sea in Virgin Gorda you can get rubbed in fresh picked aloe and essential fruit oils with the Island Cooler.
The urban jungle also supports the concept of food for the face. Manhattan’s Sava Spa has shrugged off the chemist’s workshop of elaborate beauty regimens for age-old wisdom. Eye treatments with good old cucumbers go hand in hand with lemon juice lightening at what is considered one of the West Side’s most chic beauty outposts.
The new spa at St. Emillon’s Chateau Grand Barrail offers a full menu of fresh fruiti-tutti. Therapists-turned-chefs whip up fresh fruit and veggie creations made-to-order for every treatment. As if the Bordeaux wines weren’t enough…mm..mm..m.m.m….
For the at-home spa, the Body Deli has a Fruit Smoothie Enzyme Mask with papaya enzymes and a Sea Plasma Mask with cucumber. Both masks can be ordered by mail but must be refrigerated to keep their living ingredients in peak form.
And riding the crest of the Raw Food Revolution, Sage, a new spa in Cazobon, California opening in late 2004 will offer a full menu of preservative-free food for the skin, including rose water and apricot oil wraps.
