If the harsh winter weather has left your skin cracked, flaky and practically raw, you are most certainly in the right place at The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City, where they specialize in taking care of this sort of thing with their amazing body wraps. We love the Alpine Glow. The 50-minute treatment at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa uses honeybee propolis (this is what bees use to seal their hives and protect them from the elements — so smart!) and virgin olive oil to reverse the drying effects of high altitude on your skin. The cocoon of heated blankets used to seal in these moisturizers always makes us feel warm and pampered after a day on the slopes. During the Soothing Eucalyptus wrap, also 50 minutes, a warm application of aloe vera and eucalyptus helps you breathe much easier in the thin mountain air. You can add a 25-minute massage to these treatments if you just can’t decide on one — because the odds are you could use both, especially if you’re skiing.
One of our wraps at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Park City spa, the Alpine glow wrap, is an antibacterial wrap that includes a serum made of honeybee propolis and virgin olive oil. The propolis is a key ingredient produced by honeybees that wards off sickness and promotes health. The soothing eucalyptus wrap is a combination of aloe vera and eucalyptus treatment made for dry or irritated skin that so often accompanies dry mountain air.
