FRESHEN UP WITH THESE TREATMENTS FROM YOUR NOSE TO YOUR TOES.
By Annie Flanzraich
It’s time for spring cleaning — but that doesn’t have to mean all vacuuming and dusting and no fun. After you’ve finished Kondoing your drawers and perfecting a vertical fold, take some time to pamper yourself and refresh with a treatment at some local day spas and salons.
RISE AND SHINE
Brighten up your locks with a soothing botanical hair treatment from Imagine Salon in South Lake Tahoe. This service uses Aveda Botanical Therapy to give you luminous, healthy-looking hair. Choose from either a hydration or protein-packed formula specialized to your needs. The treatment combines a restorative scalp massage, essential oils and a propriety blend of other ingredients to maintain the condition of your hair and deliver exceptional shine. imaginesalontahoe.com

THAT’S A WRAP!
Make your skin look younger and more supple with a nourishing antioxidant wrap from Spavia, located in The Summit Reno. This body wrap treatment uses active ingredients to restore your skin. The treatment begins with a raw cane sugar scrub followed by a body masque application and warm oil scalp massage. The botanical blend is enriched with antioxidants, and vitamin C found in guava fruit. Afterward, the benefits include a boost of collagen production, skin hydration, and toning, and an unparalleled glow. spaviadayspa.com/reno-nv
