When you think of Halloween, hitting the spa certainly isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But why not trick yourself into a little treat? It is the holidays, after all! From vampire facials (we’re looking at you Twilight fans) to mummy masks, these spa treatments will totally freak you out, but they’ll make you look very boo-tiful too.

If there were ever a perfect time to bring dry, dehydrated skin back to life, it’s Halloween, duh. This down and dirty, full-body treatment starts off with a head-to-toe exfoliation using a nutrient-rich muddy pumpkin scrub (where you’re basically wrapped up like a little mummy in a cocoon), followed by a seriously soothing scalp and foot massage while you wait for the pumpkin to do its job. Afterwards, you’ll hop into a warm shower to rinse off and then bathe in the scents of cinnamon with a red-hot hydrating oil application to top things off. Your skin will totally be glowing like a jack-o’-lantern when you’re done.

Dying to relax and “unwind” at the spa this Halloween? Whether you’re a working mummy or not, trust us, this treatment should do the trick. First, skin is thoroughly cleansed with Eminence?Organic Cleanser and wrapped with gauze before layering on a thick, creamy paste containing ginseng powder, pearl powder, sodium alginate, clay and rice?starch. Once the mummy mask is removed, not only will you look alive again, but your skin will be noticeably brighter, more moisturized and smoother too.

The Vampire Facial

While the name of this spooky skin rejuvenating procedure might make your blood run cold, the results will seriously have you screaming for more, and no, not just on Halloween. So how does it work exactly? In short, blood is drawn from your arm, the blood platelets are next separated out using a fancy machine and the resulting fluid is injected into your skin tissue, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s like your own natural dermal filler. Do yourself a solid however, and refrain from sending selfies mid-treatment or you’ll actually scare your friends to death.
