Summer Bloom Body Buff

at Spa L’Auberge

This 50-minute rubdown uses crushed flowers and red beets to buff away dry, dead skin. Following a warm rinse and lather of whipped body butter, you’re ready for rays—with SPF of course. Available through August 31.

$135, 1540 Camino Del Mar, Del Mar

 

Peaches & Cream Mani/Pedi

at The Spa at Torrey Pines

Dip your toes in a bath infused with coconut oil and apricot extract, followed by an exfoliating shea butter and sugar scrub before a fresh polish. While your nails dry, you can relax with a complimentary massage. Available until August 31.

$100, 11480 North Torrey Pines Road, La Jolla

 

Put the Lime in the Coconut Package

at SpaTerre at Kona Kai Resort & Spa

At Shelter Island’s recently expanded sanctuary, this luxe bundle begins with an 80-minute Himalayan salt stone massage, followed by a 50-minute lime blossom body scrub. After a quick rinse, it’s off to your 50-minute coconut lime blossom pedicure. Your hands will be busy, too—holding a complimentary coconut lime margarita. Available through August 31.

$356, 1551 Shelter Island Drive, Shelter Island

 

Fire & Ice Signature Facial

at Willows Spa at Viejas Casino & Resort

Viejas opened its full-service, adults-only spa in March, and with it this 80-minute organic facial that’s worth the drive. It infuses natural acids into the skin with apple and grape pulp, then kicks up the heat with a pinch of paprika and other herbs to exfoliate. Finally, a chilled stone crop mask keeps you cool.

$175, 5000 Willows Road, Alpine

 

Summer Dream Massage

at AquaVie

Let the stresses of your summer melt away (The tykes will be back in school soon!) from your head, neck, and shoulders while you bask in notes of elemi and rose oil. Since it lasts just 25 minutes, you’ll be back on the beach in no time. Available through September 3.

$85, 234 Broadway, Downtown
