The Spa at The Hotel Hershey Embraces The Spirit Of Autumn with Pumpkin-Inspired Pampering

In addition to myriad treatments featuring its famous chocolate, The Spa at The Hotel Hershey (Hershey, PA) offers guests seasonally themed treatments, as well. And what more appropriate way to celebrate autumn then with three services featuring pumpkin? Available only throughout October and November spa-goers “fall back” into relaxation by choosing one of the following:

Pumpkin Spice Scrub ($65, 30 minutes) Created to help clients exfoliate their skin and smooth away dullness, this scrub is ideal prior to receiving a body wrap or massage.

Pumpkin Body Cream Wrap ($125, 50 minutes) This treatment includes a dry body brush exfoliation, an application of Pumpkin Body Cream, and a light massage using Spice Soufflé Butter.

A Very A-Peeling Pumpkin Facial ($125, 50 minutes) This facial includes the application of a yam and pumpkin puree to help remove dead skin cells and reduce the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, and hyper-pigmentation.

To learn more ideas on how to incorporate pumpkins into your spa menu, be sure to check out “The Power of Pumpkin” in our October issue.
