It happens to the best of us. We get older. Without warning, fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear on our once-flawless skin. Whether your uh-oh age is 40, 30 or even 25, the inevitable signs of aging work their way into our lives, and they’re here to stay. Or, are they?
San Diego spas to the rescue, with a lineup of restorative anti-aging treatments custom designed to turn back time by improving circulation, increasing oxygenation, and promoting cell renewal. A few of my favorite miracle workers include the Age-Defying Facial at The Spa at La Costa Resort, the Ultimate Signature Facial at Spa Gregorie’s, the Anti-Age Ritual and 8-Flower Lift at The Spa at Park Hyatt Avaiara, and the Radiance Anti-Aging Facial at The Spa at Rancho Valencia, among others.
