With winter just around the corner, that means a season of shopping, holiday festivities and little time for yourself. Couple that with Vegas’ propensity toward arid weather and you have the perfect excuse to indulge yourself with a spa treatment (or three) to pamper your skin and escape from the frenzy of the season. And so you have to do as little thinking as possible, we’ve narrowed it down to these five fall spa treatments that will help you relax and unwind. Snatch up a couple for yourself or consider them a great gift for a like-minded friend.
1 Qua Baths & Spa
Thanksgiving calls for the delicious tastes of pumpkins and cranberries, so it’s apt that Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace combined the two holiday favorites with the Aromatic Pumpkin and Cranberry Facial. This 50-minute treatment hydrates and protects your skin while delivering the fragrances of Thanksgiving. Rich in vitamins and moisture-binding ingredients, this facial not only contains antioxidants, but lifts and firms at the same time. It’s like Spanx for your face.
You’ll have to wait until December to book this treatment.

2 Vdara Health & Beauty
Pumpkin is one of those ingredients you can use on your face and the natural enzymes will remove dead skin cells, leaving a fresh face. Vdara Health & Beauty has the Naturopathica Pumpkin Herbal Enzyme Facial that gently resurfaces your skin using pumpkin enzymes to clear up any cellular build-up that may block pores. This purifying treatment is fortified with a mélange of beta carotene to help slow down environmental damage to the skin. You’ll glow just like you do after eating that slice of pumpkin pie.

3 Reliquary Spa
One of the newer spas, Reliquary at the Hard Rock Hotel, the focus is the Roman bathhouse that’s the centerpiece of the 25,000-square-foot spa. It’s only appropriate that for Thanksgiving, the spa is offering a Turkish Ritual body scrub, 80 minutes of removing dead cells from your body for a buttery finish. It starts with a scrub and ends with a sudsy massage. We’re picturing heaven.

4 The Bathhouse
The holidays always conjure up images of warm cocktails meant to be sipped next to a fireplace. Enter the Hot Spiced Rum Stone Massage at The Bathhouse at THEhotel at Mandalay Bay. Warm stones come together with essential oils of cinnamon, clove and arnica to relax your muscles and work out the kinks from carrying all of those holiday shopping bags.

We’d be remiss to forget about your feet since you’ll be walking so much while you’re shopping. The Jamu Ginger Spice Pedicure at The Spa at Trump starts with a relaxing hand massage and includes a skin softening cinnamon foot soak, a ginger spice exfoliating scrub and an aromatic foot and leg massage. All the flavors of the season you need will make you feet feel divine.
