Spa Review: Island Mud Treatment at Paradise Point Resort and Spa, San Diego

If you can’t find a mud pool, head for the spa.  Paradise Point Resort and Spa in San Diego offers a Hawaiian-inspired Island Mud Treatment using ingredients sourced seasonally from mineral-rich clays.  Following an all-over dry-glove exfoliation, your therapist will paint layers of warm mud from toe to toe, before cocooning you in a wrap.  While your feet are massaged, the mud does its magic, supporting detoxification and renewal of the skin.  After showering, you’ll feel rejuvenated thanks to the salt and mineral infusion.  What’s more, your skin will feel and look more taught.

Island Mud Treatment, $130
