Spa Secrets: Four Seasons Resorts in Bali Offer Poolside Treatments

It's the day after Labor Day and already New York's forecast for the week has plunged down to 60s and rainy. If you are like us, then your first thought about the oncoming autumn is 'how do I preserve my tan?'

Beachside bronzers missing the hot August sun listen up: the two Four Seasons Resorts in Bali are providing poolside spa rituals designed to protect and revitalize skin while ensuring a safe and even tan.

We hear that the treatments take place in shaded areas beside the pool at Sayan, or beside the pool or beach at Jimbaran Bay.

The Before-Sun Ritual promotes natural tanning while helping skin strengthen its natural defense mechanisms. The 45-minute Before-Sun Ritual begins with a skin brushing designed to exfoliate dead skin cells, allowing for even tanning. This is followed by a back massage. The whole treatment is capped with a full-body application of SPF 15 or 30 coconut oil sunscreen.

Sun worshippers finishing a day of paying homage will love the After-Sun Ritual, a 75-minute treatment designed to reduce the effects of sunburn, calm the heat and regenerate dehydrated skin. The experience begins with a back massage, while sand-buffed soles of the feet are reenergized. The treatment finishes with a moisturizing full-body application of locally produced Balinese aloe vera and lavender oil.
