Now that the dry winter months are officially behind us, it’s time to think about getting your skin ready for spring. From sloughing off dead skin to hydrating body treatments, here’s a look at five day spas in Boston that will leave you looking and feeling your best.
1 Spa InterContinental
Head over to the InterContinental Hotel for a detoxifying body wrap designed to eliminate your body of the winter toxin buildups. Impurities are drawn out starting with a body brush and exfoliation that is then followed with a seaweed mask. The mask is designed to draw toxins from your body. Once applied, you will be wrapped in a warm cocoon to relax the body, eliminate toxins, and absorb the minerals. The experience finishes off with a relaxing head and scalp massage.

4 Bella Sante
Nothing says spring better than a nice fresh nail polish. Whether it's a manicure or pedicure, now is the time to get your fingers and toes looking their best. Bella Sante on Newbury Street has just what the spring doctor ordered. We recommend an 80-minute Restorative Double Exfoliation Pedicure.

5 Femme Fatale Airbrush Tan
There is no better way to get rid of that pasty white winter look than with a fresh tan. To avoid the sun's harmful rays, we recommend heading over to Femme Fatale Airbrush Tan in Kenmore Square. Owner Amy Holman books by appointment only and hand sprays each tan, which does not contain orange tint so the result is a beautiful, natural glow without any streaking.
